William Hill review
William Hill review
William Hill is one of the most established betting sites in the market. It was founded in 1934 and has since become one of the most well-respected betting platforms - both as a high-street bookmaker as well as online. The betting site has one of the best betting selections on the market for both the most popular sports as well as the smaller ones. This applies to both the total number of matches and events, but also different types of bets and functions, such as live-streaming, live betting and cash out.
The payout percentage at William Hill is generally high, but not necessarily the absolute best if you compare with some of the other betting sites. The functions that William Hill offers, such as markets, live streaming and cash out when compared to other betting sites, help compensate for the slightly lower payout percentage.
The functions that William Hill offers, such as markets, live streaming and cash out when compared to other betting sites, help compensate for the slightly lower payout percentage.
The welcome bonus offered by William Hill is good and can be divided into two forms of free bets. The first form of free bet depends on the new user's first bet after they have created an account. The second form of free bet is handed out when the bettor has placed five bets of £200 in value.
For new users, William Hill offers good bonuses for casino and poker. The Casino bonus is 100% of the first investment of up to £300, which is one of the better ones on the market. The poker bonus is divided in the form of both a bonus which is generated by rake, but also through tournament entries, cash game tickets and free spins.
The selection on offer for the casino upholds a high quality, with a lot of slot machines as well as table games. It is the developer Playtech that is pulling the strings and making sure that the betting experience is of sufficient quality.
William Hill’s poker is connected to the iPoker’s network, which means that there is always a large amount of traffic and therefore easy to find a table to play at.

About William Hill
William Hill is one of the oldest betting companies and has made the move from physical book makers to the digital age seamlessly. It was established in the UK back in 1934 and has grown into one of the biggest betting sites out there with 16 000 employed at the company.
As well as their global online offering, the bookmakers have stores all over the UK. Their headquarters are in London, but they are licensed in Gibraltar.
William Hill Sports betting
William Hill offer a wide range of games, including everything one could ask for in a modern online gaming company. It offers odds and betting on a variety of sports, as well as live betting, but also you can also bet on events that do not belong to the world of sports such as television events and politics. William Hill Casino is also at the forefront of the field, especially the live casino which has a neat and smooth navigation.
William Hill Football betting
William Hill is a classic British betting site that places a strong focus on British sports and therefore football is well-represented. William Hill’s football offering is best described as expansive, with a huge selection of odds available.
Not only do they offer a great selection of matches but they also offer a wide range of bets on matches, even all the way down in the smaller leagues. If it is football betting you after then you have to strongly consider William Hill.
However, the only drawback is that William Hill’s payout percentage can be slightly lower than some of its competitors.
William Hill Horse Racing betting
Anyone who is from, or lived, in the UK will have seen their high street venues filled with bettors watching an inordinate number of screens showing horse races. Like the other major British betting sites, William Hill offers a great selection of betting when it comes to horse racing. They cover almost all the races in the UK and Ireland as well as a good selection of global horse racing events.
You will find a wide selection of odds for the major events like Cheltenham, Ascot and the Grand National as well as the smaller events. You can watch the races live on your PC, smartphone or tablet and even listen to the Daily Racing Podcast at William Hill Radio.
William Hill Products
William Hill’s selection of products is one of the best out there. We do feel there are two areas where they excel: reliability and event selection. You can always rely on them having one of the most steady live streams out there, as well as live betting. This combination is so important as the two go hand-in-hand: Imagine you are betting on which team will win the next corner, but there is a lag in the match - the lag could well throw your bet off.
In terms of event selection it’s simple: if you are a fan of one of the leagues they have published as showing then you can be sure they will offer one of the best services out there when it comes to live streaming and betting.
William Hill Cash-out
William Hill have a great in-built cash-out function, which they call the “cash in my bet”. It is only really Bet365 that can compete with William Hill when it comes to this category. In order to see what matches are available with the cash-out function, you simply have to look out for the symbol in the right corner of the screen.
William Hill Live Streaming
William Hill’s live streaming is a one of the best in comparison to the the other large betting sites. They offer a number of different sports and leagues on a daily basis. The only thing that you need to have done in order to qualify for the service is to have money in your account or have placed a bet in the past 24 hours. You should note though that there a number of regional restrictions.
Here are a number of leagues and events that you can live stream at William Hill:
- ATP and WTA tours
- Serie A
William Hill Live Betting
When it comes to live betting there are few betting sites that can compete with William Hill’s standard. The selection on offer is enormous, there are a number of matches to bet on and also a number of different types of bets for a number of different matches. They offer statistics directly from matches, which makes it easier for users to decide what bets they want to place. In order to see what matches you can bet on live, as well as what matches will soon begin all you need to do is to click on the ‘live sports’ menu.
