The Nevada Gaming Commission on Thursday unanimously voted to fine the operators of the William Hill sportsbook and several affiliate companies $100,000 to settle a four-count complaint brought by the Nevada Gaming Control Board in August.

Three counts of the complaint stemmed from a flaw in the company’s CBS Race and Sports Book mobile wagering system, which produced duplicate wagers on some sports bets.

The Control Board complaint said the company didn’t respond promptly to regulators when the problem of the duplicate wagers first occurred. William Hill also failed to respond quickly to customer complaints, according to the complaint drafted by Deputy Attorney General Michael Somps.
