William Hill Review

With so many shops on High Streets and such a good reputation, it’s no surprise that WIlliam Hill can now boast one of the best online sites available. It’s packed with all the promotions, betting opportunities and statistics that you could ever wish to have.

History

William Hill is the home of betting and is one of the most recogised and respected companies in the bookmaking industry. They were founded in 1934 and have built a reputation for being knowledgeable, honest and trustworthy. They have become one of the leading European online gaming and betting businesses. A major reason for this is the fact they offer more than 500,000 betting opportunities to their customers every week and state on their website that customers will find more ways to bet on football, tennis or horse racing with William Hill than anyone else.

Welcome Bonus

Joining up to the site is no problem at all. You are simply asked to fill in the routine information you have to fill in when joining any site of this kind.  Once that’s been completed and you have made your first deposit (don’t worry about banking with this site as your money is totally secure), simply use the F20 bonus code.

With this all you have to do is place a 10€ win bet, note that if you want to bet each-way then a 10€ each-way bet is required not a 5€ each-way selection.  You need to place your bet on a selection that has odds of at least 1-2 or better. When this bet is settled you then see two 10€ bets on their way to your account. When you place your free bets, if successful you will only receive your winnings not the stake back as well. So if using your 10€ free bet on a selection priced 2-1, you have 20€ added to your account not 30€.

Layout

The layout of the site is really impressive and from the moment you find yourself on the Sports Betting home page, you realize there’s going to be tons to do on this site. There’s a list of the top in-play betting opportunities available at that time with the basic odds and link to the plethora of other possible bets you can try and win money on. With an eye on the future there’s also a list of ‘Match Highlights’ with details of the top games coming up in the next day or so.

An excellent feature on the sports betting home page is the inclusion of details about major events. This can be ongoing events such as the Premier League with a couple of lines of text accompanied with the top odds available and easy links to more details. They also feature other events on the horizon such as the next major horse race or a snooker tournament. Also there’s previews of the next day’s horse racing so you can start making some early plans for tomorrow’s betting campaign.

Live Betting

Betting live really adds another dimension to your gambling experience. It’s so much more fun than placing a bet and then waiting for the result to come through. Now you can follow the game as it happens and that means you can keep betting on a game if you so desire. If the score is going your way you can try to win some more and if it’s going against you, then there’s the chance to rescue the situation.

At William Hill there are so many in-play betting opportunities available at all times of the day. The fact there’s over 30 different categories to bet on is a big advantage. There’s all the major sports of course as well as smaller ones such as bandy. You can also bet on politics and all those reality TV shows. But back to the in-play opportunities on this site. All the information you want is there and it’s clear and easy to read. That’s always important especially if your eyesight is starting to wane a bit at 3am.  Even at that time William Hill have plenty for you to place bets on. It’s easy to plan your bets too thanks to the in-play betting schedule.

Live Streaming

In-play betting may be really exciting but so is watching the event that you have some money on. That’s where William Hill TV comes into play. There’s always something to watch and if you love South American football then we all know what you’re going to be watching after 10pm almost every night of the week. There’s plenty of other sports such as tennis,snooker, basketball and ice-hockey that you can also enjoy live streaming of.

Horse Racing

Horse racing fans will have a great time at William Hill. If you haven’t got a subscription for Racing UK or At The Races, then this site can really help you. Simply place a 1€ bet on any UK, Ireland or South African race and you can watch it live on this site. There’s nothing better than watching your horse win a big race.  Also available is William Hill radio with plenty of commentaries available every day.

The great service for horse racing fans continues with daily podcasts available previewing the day’s racing. One major hazard in betting on horse racing is taking an early price. Now that really is a gamble because it’s so easy to take a price and then groan as it starts to drift in the market. It’s even worse when the horse goes on to win and you realise although you are in profit it could be so much more. That won’t happen at William Hill because if that situation occurs then they will pay out at the larger starting price.

There are also plenty of virtual racing opportunities available at William Hill. Now some of us do prefer to bet on something that actually has a heartbeat but this can still be great fun. It’s also a fact that there are some decent prices on offer in these races.

Promotions

One thing is guaranteed at William Hill and that is there will be plenty of promotions on the site all the time. Football fans can take advantage of the insurance available when just one team lets you down on a six match accumulator. If that happens your stake is refunded as a free bet, it’s a good offer but some other sites offer this on five-folds.  Other offers see free bet refunds offered on correct score bets when the game ends in a boring 0-0 draw.

Cash In

In-play betting is even more exciting since William Hill introduced their Cash In feature. You don’t have to wait until the end of the game to see your bet end. You can cash in at any time and this means you have a lot of important decisions to make throughout the game. You need to keeps your wits with you as you try to decide whether to take a profit fearing your side won’t hold on to the final whistle. Also you can decide to cash out at a loss when your team is losing or drawing so you at least get some of your stake back. It can be frustrating when you make the wrong decision but it really does make betting with William Hill more exciting.

Statistics

With so many different sports to bet on it’s important that you know your stuff. William Hill definitely help you achieve that with plenty of statistics and blogs telling you vital information all aiding you in your final decision. Access to Opta statistics will really help you when you want to place a bet on football especially with so many different types of bets available.

There’s also the Tip Advisor feature that will help you even more. If you see the Tip Advisor icon then that means you have access to great tips from real gamblers. You also have the chance to follow tipsters to see what they are betting on.

Conclusion

This really is one of the best sites you can possibly visit to gamble on. Everything is set out clearly and there’s no probem at all navigating your way around the site. The A to Z list gives you instant links to everything you need. Just keep on the sports betting home page and you can move swiftly to the event you want to place a bet on.  With great promotions, lots of in-play opportunities, the cash-in feature and statistics galore, this is betting heaven.
