William Hill Compact Review
Founded in 1934 when gambling was illegal in Britain, William Hill has gone onto become one of the biggest bookmaking and online gambling companies in the world. With over 16,000 employees worldwide, 2.5 million Apple downloads for the Sportsbook app since 2012, and offering markets on more than 60,000 football matches a year, the company's numbers really do add up. According to their website, they have built their reputation by being knowledgeable, honest, and trustworthy – let's put that to the test!
Overview of Markets and Bet Types
William Hill's markets are centred around the UK, which means if you are looking at sporting events outside the UK, the odds are likely to be less favourable. However, in the UK you will find quality markets for a wide range of sports including the lower leagues. Due to its huge customer base, William Hill now provide hundreds of options for sports betting to serve any type of gambler; think of William Hill as the all-in-one sportsbook. At their level in the industry they are allowed to tussle with other major bookies, which means you are less likely to lose out on odds, and more likely to find daily market beaters. What makes William Hill stand out though, is its depth of betting options across all sports. Their website also features some easily accessible extras such as Tip Advisor, which shows real punter tips and tipster trends.
Bonus Offers and Promotions
Compared to other competitors William Hill offers a lacklustre welcome offer. After entering your 200FREE code and creating your account, place your first bet on odds greater that 1.20 and amounting to at least £10 and you will get a free bet of £20 once it has settled. As welcome offers go its nothing to get excited about, but no one will turn down a free bet of £20! On their promotions section of their website you can find more offers, including Super Sub, Cash In My Bet, Money Back, Concessions, and more. Although they are decent offers, we would like to see a wider variety here, especially for sports other than football. The best offer we found was for horse racing and greyhounds, called Best Odds Guaranteed, guaranteeing the best odds of any online bookmaker. They will pay you the difference if you can find a better price elsewhere!
Live Betting and Mobile App
Something William Hill has really mastered is in-play betting. Their in-play page is without any unnecessary elements that clutter the experience, instead they are focused completely on the numbers and the live action. Click on your preferred game and you will find a heap of markets and a clear set of statistics. Live streaming, called WHTV, is also supported on all major sporting events. Their live schedule is consistently praised, alongside their William Hill Radio feature, which broadcasts tips, previews, and expert insights. Their mobile app, which is available from the web browser or via download on Android and iOS, has been named the top betting app on android!
Payment Methods and Infos on Support
William Hill has a 'Banking' page on its website which lists 42 different payment methods! This page is very useful, as it highlights each method's deposit time, fees, and maximum deposits, and also by clicking a small drop down arrow for each method you can see more information about each method. Deposit times are generally immediate, but maximum deposits vary. The site also supports an online help centre, where you can find information on registration, deposits, withdrawals,accounts, payments, bets, and also contact details for live chat, email, call, or twitter.
With great markets, depth in betting, and its seamless live betting website, William Hill is clearly at the top of its game. We think all that they need now are some more varied and better promotions and offers!
