UK bookmaker William Hill has reported a 16 per cent increase in net revenue to £1,486.5m for the full 2013 year, with revenue diversified through the rapid growth of the company’s online business and through careful expansion into selected international markets.

During the year, William Hill said that it made significant progress on its strategy to grow by developing a wider product offering, encouraging greater multi-channel usage and expanding internationally.
