Summary:
Although it is a bit UK centred, William Hill covers all major British and International sporting events with solid 4.5% betting margin.
william-hill-website.png Financial standing, online security and rich sports offer are only some of many benefits when betting with the William Hill sportsbook. Besides accepting bets at their England shops, William Hill has been accepting wagers online since 1998. They've been publicly owned since 2002, and trade under the symbol WMH.L on the London Stock Exchange. Betting with a sportsbook that is publicly owned is something that sits well with us and probably the majority of sports bettors that like to wager with large amounts of money. They do take some of the largest betting action with up to £2,000,000 maximum win on soccer matches, but they also accept small bets as well. In fact, you can deposit as little as £5 and place a 3p bet on the single selection.
The William Hill has become the most popular destination for online players to bet on soccer. Soccer events list include major leagues in the United Kingdom such as EPL, but we didn't notice they cover Conference league and similar competitions in the lower divisions. They offer straight action, prop bets, parlays, and teasers on all sports. They also offer live action, and they guarantee the best odds on all greyhound and horse racing. Regarding live action, we don't only mean on betting in-play, but also on their live video streaming available at their broadcasting channel called WHTV.
In addition, the sportsbook accepts bets on all of the popular North American sports, such as NFL and college football, baseball, basketball and hockey. But they also offer great odds on tennis and accept horse action as well. Cricket betting covers the English county championships, International Test, ODI, T20 events and ICC World Cup events.
You will not get the best odds on the market at William Hill but somewhat conventional odds are characteristic for highly reliable bookies. The prices do fluctuate a bit depending on how much money is being placed on the event in question and you should therefore take the early bets if you plan to bet on favourites.
Just because William Hill is at the top of its class in reputation, doesn't mean that they don't offer a deposit bonus. It offers all new players a full 100% deposit bonus which maximum amount varies and depends on players's country. This bonus is considered a matched bonus, where players just need to deposit a required minimum to receive a bonus. As with all bookies, a rollover requirement is required to withdraw any winnings. Check in quick facts section on the top of this review to determine their current rollover requirements. Of course, William Hill is unfair just as all other online UK bookies because it offers a £25 in free bets only to players from the United Kingdom, 2 x £10 on sign-up and £5 every week. But if you are a lucky bastard to claim this offer simply click one of our links and on their landing page it will reveal the promotional code which is used at registration. You have to place qualifying bets on specified events only. The minimum qualifying bet is £10. The procedure of claiming the free bet is as follows. In the betting slip, when the option of claiming the free bet is indicated, the player has to enter the amount for both the qualifying bet and the free bet. If the free bet wins, the player will get only the winnings and not the stake.
As a majority of sportsbooks, William Hill does not accept US Players. They do not currently offers betting in Australia either. If you do not live in one of those two countries, they are highly recommended. However, you should always check with, and abide by, any state or local laws before opening an account with any online sportsbook.
For all Non-US citizens, they offer many different deposit options, almost guaranteeing success in funding an account. And they are quick to pay out when a player requests to withdraw their winnings.
The customer support at William Hill operates round the clock and the recommended options for contacting them are via live chat or the online form. The best proof of how seriously they see customer assistance is gauged from the fact that toll-free telephone numbers have been provided for many countries. However, before players contact customer support they should check out the online help consisting of a very comprehensive FAQs section.
The bottom line is that apart from the grounding in land based bookmaking, William Hill has a well regulated and secure online betting system for recreational players.

Other services offered
  • Casino – If you like to hunt big jackpots then William Hill casino might be the right choice for you with a huge number of Playtech's progressive slots. Some of our favourites are Gladiator Jackpot, Sweet Party and The Avengers. If you decide to deposit at least £10 you can claim the 100% welcome bonus. The maximum is up to £150 in case you decide to deposit more.
  • Poker – iPoker member with a nice 1st deposit bonus of 200% up to £1,200. The games selection is typical for this network but the most action is on the Texas Hold'em cash tables. William Hill poker is one of the rare rooms that offers over £5,000,000 guaranteed prize money per month that can be won in their tournaments.
Affiliate program Previously known as the Affiliates United their program has landed at the new internet address – affiliates.williamhill.com. The reason is probably a lot of negative comment on affiliate forums such as Affiliate Guard Dog and GPWA. There was a lot of complaints from the webmasters that they have reduced affiliate commission to the 5% if there were no new referrals, but it seems that the worst thing is the lack of trust. Their standard commission is 30%, but only for the first 3 months and then it is reduced to 20%. We could say that William Hill affiliate program isn't very competitive regarding revenue share they offer to their partners.
