William Hill confirms Probability talks

Bookmaker William Hill yesterday confirmed its interest in online gaming firm Probability, saying it was in preliminary talks with the Gibraltar-based firm but there was no certainty an offer would be made. Probability, which makes casino and slot machines games including Lady Luck, told the market yesterday it had received an approach from William Hill. Under new UK rules on takeovers that came in this week, William Hill has until 17 October to make an offer or walk away from the deal.
