William Hill beat the odds by starting out as a teenage one-man band making the rounds of Birminghams factories, pubs and clubs on his second-hand motorbike taking penny, tuppence and tanner bets.

He went on to launch a fixed odds football betting business which took a total of GBP6 18/6d in its first week,but grew to a multi-million pound turnover before being almost taxed into extinction. However, today, William Hill, whose first London office was opened in 1934, and staffed by just William and one clerk, is a truly global bookmaker, with offices in nine countries- operating across 19 time zones, is a FTSE 100 company, has over 2,500 betting shops and employs nearly 20,000 people.
