    William Hill is one of the biggest UK sports betting companies, established way back in 1934. The online site has been around since 2008 and it continues to gain popularity and credibility each day, offering a massive variety of sports and wagering options, along with the courage to continue experimenting with cutting-edge tools and features.

    Software & Graphics

    The software which powers the William Hill site comes from Playtech, one of the most trusted names in internet gambling. This only makes sense that two of the best names would join forces. The site is simple to get around and it runs nicely. Searching for what you want to look at - types of sports, games and wagers- is smooth and quick. The graphics are also inviting, and make you feel as if you're in one of their high-street shops.


    Any bookie worth their weight in gold will have a great selection of sports to choose from. There are over 60 sports to choose from, with all the usual suspects - football, basketball, cricket - to some epic American sports, UK horseracing and greyhound racing. The betslip tech is easy to use and to add bets to your ticket, including advanced types of combination wagers like money line parlays and teasers.


    Finding an answer to your query or reaching support is easy. For starters, the website's FAQ section is easy to navigate around. There's also the option to send an email to a dedicated address, or make a local UK call. There's the standard (but very helpful and quickly answered) live chat service. All of these options will connect you with a very helpful and knowledgeable service agent in short order.

    Extra Value

    In-play betting is offered here as well as an in-play radio service to keep you updated on exactly what is happening. You can even try your hand at mobile wagering with an app downloaded to your mobile device.  Stay updated on the progress of your favourite teams and players through the WH sports statistics channel or press the racing results tab.

    General Info

    The William Hill site is very easy to use, and you can play instantly from your browser - desktop, tablet or mobile. Searching the site is straightforward too, so finding the exact team and wagering option is never an issue. They also guarantee the best odds on UK horse and greyhound racing.

    Deposit / Withdrawal Options

    Making a deposit or withdrawal at William Hill is fast and simple. Upon registration, you will be presented with several options to choose from for your deposit. These include:

    • Visa
    • MasterCard
    • Maestro
    • PayPal
    • Skril

    Payout Policy

    When you are ready to take your first payout, you will most likely be required to use the same method as your deposit. Any winnings on top of this will most likely be eligible for a payout in a number of other methods. The company does also reserve the right to verify customer identities. This is usually a simple process of supplying some documentation such as an identity card and a recent utility bill in your name. Best of all, this only needs to happen once.

    Bottom Line

    An excellent sports betting site which provides many advanced options. The "Passoker," or interactive betting feature, is quite exciting, as is the live betting and even the mobile platform. Having a trusted name behind you along with a company that has incredible financial stability is also highly comforting to see in an online sports betting site.

    What do other players think about William Hill Sports?

    Pros:   I trust the brand although I suspect better odds might be offered by other, newer, companies 
    Cons:   The 6 hour delay in being able to withdraw any winnings is a tad irritating and is no doubt there to encourage customers to cancel their withdrawals and place further bets which strikes me as being a tad irresponsible. Also the bonuses which are offered usually come with terms and conditions which are hard to comply with and invariably involve -tying in- one-s deposit until the bonus funds have been exhausted. I don-t use this feature for this reason. 

    Pros:   It offers a good variety of markets and very competitive odds on sporting events 
    Cons:   The William Hill website used to be the most user friendly of all the online bookmakers. Recent changes however (and alleged -improvements-) have turned it on its head and made it one of the least user friendly of all to the extent that I have stopped using it altogether and use Bet365 instead. 

    Northern Ireland
    Pros:   William hill for me is the most trusted betting brand online and offline, long trusted history, abiding by all rules and laws. Their software is the best, odds are competitive so its definitely for me a top brand 
    Cons:   There-s nothing i can suggest, perhaps more generous bonus for existing customers who are loyal to the brand 

    Yorkshire & The Humber
    Pros:   the variety of bets available (sports variety) and the offers 
    Cons:   they should have a link to see my previous bets but can-t find it anywhere and should explain a bit more about the event of bets somehow
