|Things very quiet here lately. I see 32red was taken out today at a nice premium. I wonder when our turn is due. It certainly had no knock on effect to ou share price
|Interesting-looking trades , & volume, today. And price action so far too.|
|I can't but if you google Times news article on William hill you can get it .|
|Can you copy and paste the full article please?|
|They were certainly justified turning down the William Hill offer when you look at the current share price As I recall there were a few who thought the deal should have been done and accused the board of being greedy.
I have no doubt a deal will be done at some stage, but with whom?, and will we first see further gains, as a result of US activity, prior to that happening. If so then I would wager £3 a very probable target.
|Yes, sorry. Three quid|
|Owners wanted £3 matey|
|Almost certainly. Owners wanted four quid. Not far off now.Hills are desperate to do a deal. Any ruddy deal but are rudderless|
|Breaking out on takeover rumours?|
|12 month high there abouts|
|Something is leaking somewhere.
I suspect deals are afoot or otherwise there is some movement in the US on gaming regulation|
|WMH's recent trading update will help drive the rumour mill and/or action. Interesting times, hold tight folks.|
|All on no news as well, makes one think that something is brewing.|
|I heard a brief snippet from the hearing for Attorney General and there was a question asked about repealing the internet poker legislation. The answer was avoided by Sessions stating that he had not researched it sufficiently.
Anybody else heard anything about this or Trump's views?|
|Hills are very slow to appoint a new CEO so this could all be connected with some sort of T/O or merger .|
|Convinced the Hills have to do something and may now realise 888 is the only game in town if they want to get bigger and hence competitive|
|TO rumors kicking in I suspect|
Unlike the other companies mentioned here 888 Holdings is the company behind numerous online gambling brands like 888 Casino and 888 Poker. Although this is a different type of gaming it shares similar characteristics to non-casino developers. In fact, not all players on 888 brands play for real money. Some just enjoy playing casino games or testing their poker skills against others playing for virtual currency.
The company saw a significant boost in value last year as their shares surged 17.4%. Apart from their B2C business, 888 also offers B2B model via their Dragonfish brand and this segment also contributed to the overall growth. Through Dragonfish partners of 888 have access to software solutions, marketing services, e-payment solutions, and more.
Mobile Gaming on the Rise
One thing that can be said for all companies mentioned here is that their mobile gaming segment experienced a significant boost. Players' interest in playing from their mobile devices is clearly on the rise and gaming companies need to keep up.
All four mentioned here, especially Nintendo and 888, have accepted and adapted to this fact. 888 went as far as to create an instant play interface for their online poker offering accessible from every mobile device without the need for a downloaded app.
The demand for mobile gaming is likely to increase in the years to come so we'll probably see more games following in the footsteps of Pokemon GO, offering exciting gaming experience without tying players to their consoles or even forcing them to go out there in search of an adventure.|
|Zero Hedge reports that Congress is "busy moving forward with a proposal that would impose a Federal ban on online gambling". Why? Argument is that the campaigners are "paying off campaign debt" ... i.e. Adelson campaign donations.Article on 8 Dec entitled "Lame-Duck Congress Looking to Ban Online Ganbling", zerohedge.com|
|Think Trump is in favour of gambling but not sure if he prefers bricks & mortar sites as opposed to online.|
|Both have strong US positions - that is the big unknown now. It is hard to see this hard line right wing government being particularly favourable to gambling of any sort.
We shall see|
|Can't see what great benefit 888 would get from merger with WMH .
Can understand WMH taking over 888 if they wanted to try again as this would give them the badly needed online presence.
Would 888 be interested in somebody with a a lot of shops that may have future restrictions put on the cash cow machines that generate most of the high street profits!!!
Then again mergers seem to be the way this industry is going and WMH may have a lot more to offer the likes of 888.
Time will tell but it's funny how it appears the one industry governments hate is probably one that gives them high levels of tax and is currently outstripping most others in terms of growth.
Hoping the new president will open Trumpland up to online gambling now that would really see the share price rocket.|
|Would be a good move. However, the major shareholder of 888 is holding out for a £3 per share valuation ... that might well prove a stumbling block.|
