The bookmaker, one of the oldest in the UK and now part of the 888 Holdings international gaming group, will utilise TrueLayer’s payments product to offer instant pay-ins and payouts to its British customers.

William Hill is aiming to strengthen of its overall customer experience via the partnership by speeding up customer withdrawals whilst also meeting PSD2 and SCA compliance requirements.

“By using their unparalleled payment solutions, we’re able to offer instant payment options whilst providing reliable and secure services and keeping our commitments to helping our customers stay in control. 

“Integrating with TrueLayer was seamless – they’re an agile company with a nice, smart team that’s easy to work with.”

TrueLayer is confident that open banking presents key opportunities and benefits to the UK gambling sector, as well as the wider European market in general, citing research it has conducted in partnership with YouGov.

The research found that ‘eight in 10 European players consider quick payouts important when choosing a betting provider’, with more 55% of igaming customers saying they would likely switch to an operator offering instant payments. 

The partnership with William Hill comes at a transformative time for the operator as it nears completion of its second full year under the 888 umbrella, having been acquired by the company in September 2021.

Roberto Villani, VP of iGaming at TrueLayer said: “Working with William Hill, one of the biggest gaming brands in the UK, is a further testament to how TrueLayer is delivering the best in class instant payment experience to players.
