Imagine what she would make if they didn't limit accounts to 3,65.

Nothing obscene about it IMHO...yes it's a huge amount of money but if you found a company and it's that profitable, it's your right to do so.

If they didn't limit accounts, I believe they would make less.

For 2017, Bet365 generated revenue of £2.28b, up 38% from the company’s fiscal 2016 figure. This is a money making machine.
She is getting 11-12% of profits, which is a normal salary for this caliber.
Some of the very successful figures in this industry are a she.

Very much correct. If you take a look in Vegas' casinos, it is very difficult to find a male top manager.

Leftie wankers the Guardian.  Jealous of success.  Good luck to her she risked everything to set up her company, hope she makes a billion next year!!

Do the Guardian donate all their profits to the poor... thought not.

What a shame!
After the announcement of Coates payment, the gambling press, forums etc, are dominated by negative and toxic articles and comments.
That's life, folks.
Communism and Socialism is advancing in the gambling world. Those who want to make money out of it are those who take the paradigm and not those who spit on it.

Fair play she is doing it right and paying massive tax on her earnings (unlike a most people in her position) 

Good luck to her, and i will tip my hat to her as she has made me a good few quid on her journey!!!

What kind of journalism is that? This is one year old news, and now all are discussing about that?
And even here nobody realize that.

The next series is about her ''glass palace'' and building of a fortress.
