William Hill or WillHill as it’s known to many of their customers is an instantly recognisable brand in the world of betting. Formed in 1934, it’s one of the oldest bookmakers in the UK but despite this age the site, the operations and the markets available have certainly moved with the times making William Hill one of the largest bookies around today.
William Hill Website
The site itself is quite busy and hectic but some of the design features are outstanding compared to other online bookmakers. Different coupons, sports and games are available from anywhere on the site no matter where you are making it easy to find what you’re looking for. And a unique feature for WillHill is the “Search” function. If a pal of yours mentioned the name of a horse in passing but didn’t tell you where or when it was racing, just type the name of the horse into the search bar and you’ll be greeted with a range of markets and bets that match your search term.
For football punters out there who like a bit of In-Play action, there’s no shortage of information at your fingertips. Access any game in play and you’ll be greeted with a well displayed on-pitch feature which shows all of the statistics you need to make your bet including possession and the number of times each team has hit the woodwork, features which are unique to William Hill. Add to that a number of matches (and races for the horse folk) streamed live on WillHill TV and all in all you have a great package available.
William Hill Sign-up Bonus
WillHill’s welcome bonus is far from superior compared with other online bookmakers but it’s still free money so we can’t really complain about it. If you register your account and enter the promo code “F25” then they’ll match your first bet with a free bet of up to £25. It’s worth bearing in mind that your first bet has to be placed on odds of 1/2 or greater and that it’s matched on your first bet not your first deposit.
William Hill Mobile
Another area where William Hill have taken the bull by the horns and challenged all of the other bookies to beat them is the mobile app. It’s easy to use, neat, organised and efficient. But as if a well made mobile betting app wasn’t enough, they also do some great promotions specifically on mobile.
The first, and a personal favourite is “Mobile Acca Insurance”. Place a 5 fold (or more) on the football and if one team lets you down, you get your stake back as a free bet. This is available on ALL fixtures EVERY day of the week and is something that nobody else does. Some other great mobile offers that they do are:
- Winning Distance – If you’re horse wins by 10+ lengths you get an extra 10% on top of your winnings, if it wins by 20+ lengths you get an extra 20%
- Goal Scorer 2nd Chance – If you bet on a first goalscorer and he scores 2nd instead, your stake will be refunded as a free bet
- Bore Draw Money Back – If you bet on a Correct Score or HT/FT double result and the match finished 0-0, your stake will be refunded as a free bet
One area where William Hill excels itself is the range of different and quirky markets that they have available. Football bets such as “Race to X Goals” where you’re betting on the first team to reach a certain amount of goals and “Stats Trebles” i.e. Under 2.5 Goals & 4-6 cards & Over 10 corners are just two markets which can only be found with WillHill. Add to this the wide range of enhanced specials that they offer, which you can also receive by text so you’re always in the loop, and you’ll soon realise that they can compete with many other bookies out there. They don’t offer any asian markets which you can find at the likes of Unibet and Betfair, but they cover 99% of any of the markets you’ll find elsewhere.
Cash In Feature
One of the great positives of William Hill is the ability to cash out your bet. They’re one of only two bookmakers offering this feature at the minute and it can prove a life saver at times. If you’ve never used a Cash-In feature before, it basically allows you to take a certain percentage of your winnings at any time. If you’ve had a 5 fold on the football and 4 are already in, WillHill will offer you a certain amount to cash in the bet, leaving you with a tidy profit if you’ve had second thoughts about your final selection.
Overall, William Hill offers so many unique features that other bookmakers just don’t possess. The ability to cash in your bet, the unique bonuses available, the usability of the site and the specials that they offer are second to none. They cover a wide range of sports and a wide range of markets and all of them are easily found at the click of a button no matter if you’re betting on your mobile, tablet or PC.
