William Hill was founded in 1934 and is therefore one of the oldest names around in the gambling industry. It was also one of the first to provide online betting in 1998. They currently have around 2300 betting shops in the UK and Ireland and have been listed on the UK stock exchange since 2002. Today they offer betting opportunities on the high street, online or by mobile phone.
The advantage of using such a large firm is that they have a reputation to keep up which means they have to operate to the strictest standards. For you this means good security and no problem getting your winnings paid out. This is not always the case with some of the smaller lesser known casinos. In addition, they operate a responsible gaming policy which enables you to voluntarily limit your activities should you wish to do so.
You can choose either to play in instant mode requiring no download or to download the casino. In download mode there is a much greater choice of games with more being added on a regular basis. If you cannot find something to amuse you here you are pretty hard to please. All in all a very complete offering.
Many casino players also like to have a flutter on sporting events or a game of poker and this is where large companies such as William Hill have an edge. Once you have money in the main balance you can use it to place bets in the casino or for other sports. Only poker has a separate balance and even then it is very easy to switch the money instantly.
For regular players there is a tiered bonus programme providing bonuses according to the monthly stake but you need to use the download version and not all games stakes are counted at 100% for the bonus. In our opinion this is a complicated system and not overly generous; but your choice of casino should not depend solely on the bonus available.
As you would expect for a main stream site like this help is available 24/7 by phone or e-mail and they publish their payout percentages by month.
William Hill is a large trusted bookmaker with a good choice of games and the opportunity to place bets on other events.
