ben_keith_team-150x150[dropcap]W[/dropcap]hat do you do, if you don’t have the patience or skill, to build a bookmakers organically, as you learn the game, and earn the money, and right, to be a big player?

The merger, merry-go-round, keeps spinning, and the next ‎Firms to sell out, look to be Ladbrokes Coral and Tabcorp (SEE STORY).

Do you remember, when those in our industry, were loyal to their brand, and wanted to grow an independent business, with character and flair? Yep, well, they are just memories now.
