William Hill UK Review 2019
William Hill is not only one of the biggest names in online betting, it is one of the oldest bookmakers in the United Kingdom. Having been established in 1934 by William Hill, the bookmaker began life when gambling was still illegal in the UK.
However, you can rest assured everything is above board today and William Hill is one of the most trusted names in sports betting. The company was listed on the London Stock Exchange in 2002 and they are licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission for customers in Great Britain and licensed by the Gibraltar Government for all other customers.
William Hill sponsor many sporting events and awards including the World Darts Championship, Scottish Cup, William Hill Sports Book of the Year and several horse races in the UK.
William Hill UK Bonus £30 in free bets
When joining an online bookmaker for the first time you must take advantage of the welcome offer and for customers in the UK, William Hill offers £30 in free bets when you bet a minimum of £10 on odds of 1/2 or greater.
The free bets credited as three £10 bets and they must be used within 30 days, so do not leave them in your account for too long, or you could miss out.
You must remember that free bet stakes are not returned as part of the settlement of successful free bets and you cannot use PayPal to deposit money otherwise you will not qualify for the offer.
William Hill Betting Markets
As with most major online sports betting websites, William Hill focuses much of its attention on football and you will find a wealth of betting markers from around the world. Whether it be the English Premier League or the Thailand Division 4, you will struggle to find a day of the year where you don’t have a choice of football betting markets available.
Other than football, William Hill UK has extensive horse racing, tennis, golf, snooker, cricket and basketball betting markets among many other sports. You will find the odds are close to the industry average and while nothing special, you will find some value odds occasionally.
Water sports is perhaps where William Hill lets itself down. At the time of writing, there was not one single betting market available for swimming, diving or surfing, which is disappointing. Rowing was covered, thanks to the 2019 Men’s Boat Race but none of the upcoming aquatic or surfing events were available.
That will change for the 2020 Olympic Games but there is certainly room for improvement in this area.
William Hill UK 2020 Olympics Betting
As mentioned above, William Hill UK will be offering water sports betting markets for the 2020 Olympics, including swimming and diving competitions. The games will be taking place in Tokyo and William Hill will also have in-play betting for some of the sports where this is appropriate, such as table tennis, football, golf and hockey.
In-play Betting and Online Streaming
William Hill pays extra attention to in-play betting and this becomes apparent when loading the homepage. You will find the latest in-play markets at the top of the website, with a selection of the top events shown plus a menu to access other sports.
Whether it be football, tennis, basketball, snooker, table tennis, ice hockey or cricket, you will find plenty of in-play markets at William Hill.
Live streaming is available thanks to WH TV and this can be accessed either from the link at the top of the website, where you will find an extensive list of the day’s live events or from within the betting market itself. William Hill also have a radio broadcast and you can listen to live coverage of horse and greyhound racing.
William Hill UK Mobile App Review
The William Hill UK mobile app is available from both the App Store and Google play, making it easily accessible for Apple and Android device users. You can enjoy all the features of the main website including in-play betting, live streaming, radio stations, betting markets and the £30 free bets offer.
The colour scheme matches that of the desktop site and the William Hill UK mobile app is very easy to navigate and place a bet. You can also bet on the Olympics if you are based in Nevada and New Jersey. Also, New York will join legal states for sports betting in 2020 as Pennsylvania did in 2019.
