Gibraltar Explosion Closes Down The Big 3 UK Bookmakers

Top UK online bookmakers that operate out of Gibraltar had their websites down yesterday due to a massive generator fire and subsequent explosion. William Hill, Betfred and Ladbrokes as well as Party Poker had begun to get their websites back online but had lost a ton of business during peak hours on one of the busiest betting days of the week.

A spokesman for Will Hill said its services were out for about 2.5 hours and said “It’s just one of those Freak accidents that no one could predict”. They good news was that because of Easter Sunday there was no marque betting events held yesterday for UK bettors.

After the massive explosion power was knocked out to all of Gibraltar and many residents of the tiny nation had to be evacuated, thankfully no injuries were sustained.
