888 And Ladbrokes Merger Talks Off

Online Gaming Operators Agree To “Discontinue” Talks Over Possible Merger

Print-icon today announced talks with Ladbrokes over a potential merger had been “discontinued”.

The company, which yesterday published record quarterly results in the face of losing its CEO Gigi Levy, had been in talks with the British bookie since the end of December 2010.

The collapse of merger talks between the two operators leaves the door open again for Playtech to push for a deal with Ladbrokes despite facing stern opposition from its current partner William Hill.
