The William Hill Online (WHO) unravels in a high profile drama suited for a “who done it” movie. The plot thickens as massive employee walk outs including 180 in Tel Aviv followed by 100 workers in the WHO Bulgarian center and 300 Playtech workers in Manila.

It is uncertain if staff was aware of alleged plans to start a new rival business and a possible cover up was underway. As a result of the possible new operation, William Hill fired seven senior managers and junior staff. The recent complications of William Hill who holds 71 percent of a joint venture with Playtech has had a major impact on operations.

Eyal Sanoff, chief marketing officer of WHO in Tel Aviv, reportedly resigned after refusing for several months to provide day to day access to the computer operation when asked by William Hill. Chief executive of William Hill, Ralph Topping, hired Israeli intelligence officers who discovered a rabbi, fish feeder, table tennis coaching and hairdresser were reportedly found on the books.

The media reports "Last Sunday matters came to a head when Henry Birch, WHO's chief executive, and Jim Mullen, its chief operating officer, visited Tel Aviv only to find staff had been redirected to a local beach"

"When Mr Mullen visited the Tel Aviv office, he was locked out. Its email and telephone systems were also taken down,"

William Hill has an option to buy out Playtech’s share in WHO in October 2013 and some analysts speculate the current destruction is sounding a warning alarm from Teddy Sagi, Playtech’s founder and major share holder that it must pay top dollar or risk further chaos.
