William Hill pulling out of huge list of countries

Due to regulatory reasons William Hill will no longer accept new players nor allow currently account holders to remain active from those countries listed below. Effective March 26th, 2014 players will have to withdraw current balances and new players attempting to register will not be able to do so. We apologise for the inconvenience this is likely to cause but unfortunately this decision is out of our hands and for regulatory reasons is out of our control.

Players of William Hill are advised to withdrawal their funds from their player accounts as of March 26th, 2014. If you wish to obtain more details pertaining towards any of the issues you can contact Customer Services.

This is a statement that was released to players and affiliates on the 24th of March. Due to a series of recent regulation changes, William Hill has been forced to leave the gambling market in the following countries listed. These regulation changes are not just a blow to William Hill but they also effect Playtech as a whole.

Playtech will now lose customers from around the world and this in turn will have a negative impact on their licensees. Once markets become regulated William Hill will consider re-entering these areas. Those countries no longer being accepted at William Hill include:

Afghanistan, Algeria, Anguilla, Bangladesh, Belize, Benin, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Cameroon, Cape Verde Islands, Central African Republic, Chad, Djibouti, Equatorial Guinea, Ethiopia, Gabon, Gambia, Greenland, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Haiti, Laos, Lesotho, Liberia, Madagascar, Malawi, Maldives, Mali, Mauritania, Mongolia, Montserrat, Morocco, Mozambique, Nepal, Netherland Antilles, Niger, Norfolk Island, Rwanda, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Samoa, Sao Tome and Principe, Saudi Arabia, Solomon Islands, Somalia, South Africa, Surinam, Swaziland, Thailand, Togo, Tonga, Uganda, Uruguay, Vanuatu and Yemen.

If you reside in one of the countries listed and have an active account with William Hill you are urged to withdraw any positive balance you may have. As an alternative all Microgaming Casinos are accepting players from most of countries and you can register with any you find listed on this site.
