Fairfax Media owned, The Australian Financial Review, has advised that CrownBet and Paddy Power Betfair subsidiary, are the two firms waging war for William Hill Australia.

Both operators are reported to have confirmed their interest this week in pursuing William Hill’s turbulent Australian business and will be permitted to perform due diligence on the asset to prepare their formal bids.

This sees Australia’s two biggest online bookmakers compete for William Hill’s division which has been active in the Australian market since 2012, formed through the acquisitions of Sportingbet Australia, Centrebet and the always in the news

Confirming a strategic review of its Australian business in January, William Hill is reported to have invested AUS $700 million (€440 million) to date on its Australian enterprise. Insiders have been speculating if their will see a true return on investment.

Some commentators tip that William Hill governance will target an AUS $200 million (€126 million) sale for its asset.

FTSE100 Paddy Power Betfair seeks to continue the strong momentum of its Sportsbet Australia asset, which in 2017 became the outright market leader in online wagering with an estimated 15% of market share.

Spearheaded by industry veteran Matt Tripp, a gentleman no stranger to the Media Man group, this February CrownBet secured Toronto TSX The Stars Group Inc as its new majority shareholder completing a €95 million investment in the operator.

Both Paddy Power Betfair and The Stars Group governances seek to expand further in a rapidly evolving Australian online betting market, which has seen considerable restrictions in credit-line betting and bookmaker advertising. In play betting, exotic betting and a number of other betting operations have also been scrutinized and in some cases outlawed completely in the Australian marketplace.

Australian state legislators are assessing whether to impose further taxes on online betting transactions, creating harsher terrain for market incumbents.

Facing severe operational restrictions, industry analysts and commentators believe that the Australian online betting market may contract to become a small field of players from its current state, as European operators revise their market options.

United States based operators are continuing to eye off Australia as the business of sports continues to grow, with Vince McMahon lead XFL re-launching in 2020 and the AFL taking its brand global with the AFLX. Mixed martial arts global leader, the UFC continues to enjoy a strong following in Australia, which Bellator MMA is looking to boost its public and media awareness down under on Australian soil. Former UFC champion, Ken Shamrock and his business manager, Des. W. Woodruff have been discussing the business of sport on their Podcast 'The World's Most Dangerous Podcast. Multi-time pro wrestling champion Mike "The Miz" Mizanin is also known to offering commentary on the business of sports betting, some of which makes its way onto media platforms such as YouTube and TMZ from time to time. Not to be outdone, Jim Ross aka JAR provides regular sports business news updates via his media channels, and has enjoyed a long time brand endorsement deal with DraftKings. In July last year DraftKings and FanDuel were set to merge however anti-trust and FTC competitive concerns saw the merger deal canceled.
