One thing that is not clear about the William Hill site is the availability of bonuses. In the football section there are a number of tabs on the top. The special tabs features one off bets relating to a managerial situation or team multiples while the tab for net-buster is unclear unless you are signed in. They do have an attractive offer whereby if you Place a football Accumulator of six or more selections and if you miss by one get your stake refunded as a free bet. The coupon section features additional bonuses such as double chance and in-game bonuses but is it not very clear to the untrained eye.

 

WILLIAM HILL BETTING ODDS AND MARKETS

William Hill are market leaders when it comes to football odds and are extremely competitive although like other plc.’s do they struggle with shareholder accountability ensuring that the margins are not as reduced as they could be. With the focus on the UK market the horse racing offering is quite strong and the company were one of the first to give odds on daily racing and as well as offering best odds guaranteed on all UK and Irish meetings.

WILLIAM HILL TABLET , MOBILE BETTING AND APPS (iOS, Android)

William Hill have transitioned into the world of mobile betting with ease with more than a quarter of their bets coming via mobile devices. The app, available on android and Apple (iPhone/iPad) has many features, such as automatic log in and quick links to most popular bets. The same matching offer applicable to new sign ups is also available on mobile and tablets while the mobile internet webpage lacks the mobile integration of other bookmakers the apps more than make up for this.

 

WILLIAM HILL CONCLUSION

Overall the William Hill site is strong. The WHTV function looks good and the site has abandoned the sidebars that other sites use making it stand out more. The inability to locate additional bonuses easily was off-putting but the list of sports, games and in-play betting service help make up for this.
