William Hill Overview
William Hill has been around for decades. It first started out in 1934, where it became a popular sportsbook in the United Kingdom; it was first sold as a physical book. After becoming successful in the sports betting market, they decided it would be good to expand, and in 1998 they took their sportsbook and took it online. From this expansion, they were able to capture markets in Europe and Canada; sadly, they do not allow any U.S. sports bettors to use their wagering services. As they began as a UK-based company, their headquarters remain there. They are, however, licensed and regulated through the Gibraltar Gaming Commission and Authority. This has enabled them to continue in their prosperity and growth, becoming internationally known for their great sports betting services.
William Hill Website
William Hill is by no means an ordinary website; it is a great place for sports bettors and enthusiast to gather. The online sportsbook can get overwhelming at times, due to the amount of information that is on the website; it is more cluttered than others. However, this can also be viewed as a good aspect of the website. The William Hill sportsbook is always updating, adapting, and innovating its information. Bettors can find sports matches that are occurring at the moment, as well as upcoming events. They have countless information on each team and sport, giving the bettor all the news and stats they could ever want.
Their website has a few features that make it stand out amongst its rivals. Any online sportsbook needs to be able to accommodate to the bettors, and their member’s needs. William Hill has created an App for their online sportsbook, so bettors using the iPhone or iPod can download and use the app to look up odds and place bets from their Apple devices. One of the better features that William Hill offers its members is the chance to view certain matches, live, from their computer. They stream these sporting events through their WHTV Live Streaming service. Bettors can enjoy watching their favorite sports, while they can also enjoy the In-Play betting; bettors can place wagers while the match is currently being played, with automatically updated scores and odds.
William Hill Sports Selection
The William Hill sportsbook boasts such a large quantity of sports that its members can pick and choose from. They have sports from all over the globe, some better known than others.

William Hill Wagering Options
There are a few wagering options that William Hill offers bettors. Just like any other good sportsbook, they have the betting line with the Money Line, Spread, and Totals bets. In the case of the NFL, they also take bets on which team will be the First Touchdown Scorer, and the Last Touchdown Scorer; which are a form of Prop bets that are also offered. They have the Outright (Futures) bets, where a member can wager on which team will win a future event, and if talking about the NFL they can wager on which team will win their Division, Conference, and even the Super Bowl.
William Hill Bonuses and Promotions
William Hill does not believe that offering cash bonuses is a very big incentive, or even a good way to show their appreciation to their loyal members. This is why their only, real bonus would be a £25 Risk Free Financial Bet, where members can place a bet on the financial markets and get a free pass if they lose. Instead of cash bonuses and promotions, what they do offer is excellent services. They have their own TV streaming, and even an In-Play Radio for those matches that are not shown through the live streaming. They also guarantee the best odds, making it very profitable for their members to continue to wager through the William Hill sportsbook.
William Hill Banking Options
William Hill has an incredible amount of different banking options, allowing them to cater to most of the world, except the U.S., and being able to satisfy those members.
There are many more options for depositing funds, as there are country-specific options that they give their members. These are just the general methods that most members can use to deposit and withdraw without having to use different methods for both.
William Hill Customer Service
William Hill has several methods that their members can contact the customer service department in order to get their questions and/or problems answered.
