The net worth of Denise, John and Peter Coates gave the family 17th place in the ‘Sunday Times Rich List 2021’. Last month, it was revealed that Bet365’s founder and majority shareholder, Denise Coates, earned a salary of £ 421 million over a 12-month period ending on March 29.

She also earned a dividend of £ 48 million, bringing her total sum to £ 469 million. The amount received was considered the largest paycheck in British corporate history. His salary was 50% higher than the £ 277 million earned in 2019.

Last year, she earned almost £ 1.2 million every day, according to the High Pay Center. This amount is above any amount received by the head of an FTSE 100 company (list of the 100 largest companies in the UK by total market value).

Denise Coates founded Bet365 two decades ago and has been the highest-paid ‘boss’ in the UK in recent years. Now Denise, her brother John Coates and her father Peter Coates have been labeled the UK’s 17th richest landlord. In fact, this appearance in 17th place on the list represented the fall of one position compared to last year.

Recently, Bet365 changed the brand of its affiliate program, formerly known as Bet365 Affiliates; it will now be called “Bet365 Partners”. In addition, the bookmaker reported that the new program will have a new design and improved features, designed to strengthen the relationship between the brand and its partners.
