Ladbrokes Job Redunancies due to Playtech Israel Partnership.


(Reuters) – Ladbrokes said as many as 100 employees at its headquarters in Harrow could lose their jobs as Britain’s second-largest bookmaker transfers a number of roles to its operation in Israel, set up as part of its agreement with gaming software developer Playtech.

In March, Playtech and Ladbrokes, which has struggled to keep up with the online offering of UK market leader William Hill, finalised an agreement for the former to advise and assist the bookmaker with its digital services for an initial period of five years.… Read More…

Pensioner 1 leg away from winning £1 Million on Football!


A Pembrokeshire pensioner narrowly missed out on winning £1 million for just £1, after Liverpool’s defeat of Manchester United ended his dreams of landing Coral’s unique Football Jackpot this weekend. However, the betting shop customer, who wishes to remain anonymous, did win more than £72,000 by correctly picking 14 out of 15 correct outcomes on the weekend’s football.

“After correctly predicting the outcome of 12 matches on Saturday, this customer was the only person still in the running for the £1 million jackpot, and after Swansea beat West Brom, he was just two results away from winning the life-changing amount, but unfortunately Manchester United failed to win at Anfield, which ended the dream.… Read More…

Mixed emotions in my home town, after many years of regular patronage my local Wimpy Burger Bar is shutting down. Much like many good things the end came without warning,robbing me of the chance of a farewell 1/4lber with cheese, chips and chocolate milkshake!
