Online wagering firm Bet365 has made the list of Management Today’s Great Britain’s Most Admired Companies in 2017, coming in number four. 

From Management Today:

Bet365, a remarkable online gaming success story hailing from the unlikely tech hub of Stoke-on-Trent. Founded by CEO Denise Coates, Bet365 is a family business in a sector increasingly dominated by merged outfits such as Paddy Power Betfair, but thanks to Coates’ acumen it has become a market leader with 19 million customers in more than 200 countries. Unlike rivals such as Ladbrokes Coral and William Hill, Bet365 is a pureplay digital business – with no betting shops it has little to fear from the forthcoming government crackdown on fixed odds betting terminals.

These accolades come as online gambling affiliates tackle with how to handle Bet365’s demands to post scripted reviews on their respected pages, with some affiliates reporting suspended accounts for failing to adhere to the new policy.
