Most bookmakers have a name that in some way alludes to gambling, money, or athletics. Using certain terms makes it easy to find them when a person searches on the internet or inquires about their type of service, but the name William Hill seemingly suggests nothing about betting. However, after eight decades in the industry, with shops around the globe, and more than two million online users, they are experts.
Getting started at William Hill is easy and quick. Between the 9 different currencies you can bet with and the plethora of deposit methods, it’s all there for you. All you need to do is sign up for an account and decide how much you want to wager. Deposit and withdrawal minimums are low, straightforward, and fast so you can wager when you want to.

Withdrawals are much the same as deposits—seamless. Request your cash and method of payment including credit cards, bank transfers, and PayPal and you’ll receive your money within days. Payout times vary between one to 10 business days with bank transfers cited as the longest.
Because the William Hill name has a reputation and the product speaks for itself, they don’t need to offer tremendous incentives. That being said, there are a free long-standing promotions offered along with event-specific and seasonal bonuses.
William Hill offers an enticing £30/€30 worth of free bets when you make your first £10/€10 bet. Just use the promo code C30 during registration to claim this offer.

Flash Odds & Enhanced Odds
While Flash Odds and Enhanced Odds have different names, they are inherently very similar. Both offer better odds on a given event for a limited period of time. Flash Odds are usually available for an hour or so, whereas Enhanced Odds have a slightly longer duration. To find the limited time offers, look for the Flash Odds banner or the Enhanced Odds logo.
William Hill's Sportsbook
As you would expect with an experienced betting site, William Hill offers everything you could ask for when it comes to what, when, and how to bet in their sportsbook. Standard betting is available for a huge number of games in a ton of different sports and even smaller leagues and events are covered closely. Exotics and futures are options on almost all marquee events and many smaller games too.
The wagering menu includes over 30 sports ranging from niche sports like sumo wrestling to the NFL. Even when special events come around, like the Olympics, Will Hill will expand the line selection to include special props. Within the sportsbook, you can choose your preferred odds format and language, or even turn on the William Hill Radio.
William Hill also has what they call their Tip Advisor for bettors. The Tip Advisor is a section that offers insight into what the sharps are picking. It can be a blessing and a curse because it can either it make you question your bet or reinforce your decision.
Live Betting & Streaming
William Hill’s live betting is vast and includes much more than standard bets. In fact, in-play betting is one of their most popular features and for good reason. There are almost as many in-game wagers available as there are before the event begins.
Beyond the ability to play games in whatever manner you prefer, they offer tremendous analysis and coverage of contests. The streaming software at William Hill allows you to watch almost anything that is televised throughout the globe as it happens before even placing a bet.
In addition to watching games, extensive and detailed previews, stats, perspectives, and opinions are available for you to factor into how you want to bet. Radio streaming is also offered with analysis and play-by-play of matches, races, and games.
The William Hill site completely has adapted to your mobile device of choice. It can be slightly overwhelming at times based solely on the line selection—you could be scrolling for a while before finding the right odds. Other than that, it’s easy to navigate and has a visually appealing interface.
More than just a mobile site, William Hill has an app that you can use to bet and watch live sports. The app is extremely user-friendly and comprehensive. Any sport you’re looking for won’t be hard to find and, in the off chance you are having difficulties, the app directly links you to William Hill’s Twitter, Facebook Messenger, and Contact page if needed. At the time of this review, the public consensus is similar to ours as the rating is 4.5/5 and 4.3/5 at the App Store and Google Play respectively.
Additional Offerings: Racebook, Poker Room & Casino
Outside of wagering on sports, William Hill has an extensive betting menu including a casino, racebook, and a poker room with a huge range of games.

The site recognizes that notion and prioritizes sports first, horses second, and games third. While the selection of is not enormous, it quenches the thirst for Las Vegas-style gaming with poker, bingo, macau, scratchcards, and more casino games.
