Review of the Bookmaker
William Hill is considered to be one of the biggest bookies in the UK with multiple shops on the high streets throughout the UK as well as an established presence on the internet too. With William Hill at the moment, you can claim a £30 free bet when you deposit £10 which is a pretty good deal. These free bets are credited as 3x £10 tokens to use on future bets.
We do like William Hill here at BetCode, the site’s functionality spans across its sports, casino, vegas, poker, bingo and games sections. With only needing 1 account, it’s very easy to switch between playing any of the different types of online play that they offer. Another great thing is that you can split the money you have in your account so that you can keep different balances in different sections. E.g. you could keep £20 in your bingo account for the next time you play but have £15 in your casino wallet for the next time you hit the tables. This allows you to have more control over your money and where it’s being spent!
William Hill offers a great selection of sports bets and even offer in play betting which some other bookmakers don’t tend to offer. In-play betting can really make the sport that you watch that much more enjoyable and you can use your intuition to make those decisions that can really pay off.
We also really like the mobile app that they have on the iPhone and Android platforms, it’s easy to use on the go and we have never had any problems with placing and settling bets or loading any odds. Overall, we did prefer the iOS version of the app as it did feel smoother to use.
William Hill also offer other bonuses to claim when you first sign up so make sure that you choose the right one for you before you rush off and claim the first one you see. Generally speaking the best offers are for Casino and Vegas, followed by Poker and Bingo and then Sports. This is pretty much the industry standard across the board anyway as the casino markets generally are more lucrative for the operators.
It’s also worth noting whether your bonus has any wagering requirements that need to be met with your bonus before it can be withdrawn, this is often overlooked by many players when they initially sign up. They think it’s free money, when 99% it actually isn’t. For example, if you have deposit £100 and have a bonus of £100 – so £200 in total, but your wagering requirements are 4x, then you would often need to play and win an awful lot to be able to withdraw your money, so be careful and read the small print on the offers because sometimes they are there to catch you out!
Lastly, we are going to look at William Hill’s reputation online, and it’s pretty great. William Hill is one of the top operators in the UK and there is a reason for that. They do have a great reputation and the payout rate is pretty good. Let’s be fair, a company that has hundreds of shops on the high street is not going to be able to rip people off and get away with it otherwise their business would be destroyed overnight.
