British gambling company William Hill has been hit by a record £19.2m fine by the UK gambling regulator.

Three gambling businesses owned by the company will pay the sum for “widespread and alarming” social responsibility and anti-money laundering failures, the Gambling Commission said.

The entities who will pay the fines will be paid by WHG (International) Limited, which runs williamhill.com – which will pay £12.5m – Mr Green Limited, which runs mrgreen.com, which will pay £3.7m; and William Hill Organisation Limited, which operates 1,344 gambling premises across Britain and will pay £3m.

The “settlement” is the largest in the Gambling Commission’s history.
