Even though their odds aren’t the most attractive in the industry, they are still definitely acceptable. The range of markets includes all the usual such as football, rugby, boxing, cricket, horse racing, greyhounds, and golf. A nice quality of William Hill is the in-play betting which has a wide-ranging market with plenty of live games with detailed, in-game stats, which is not seen on many of the other sites.

William Hill has a dedicated iOS app and Android app to instantly get you up and running when on-the-go, and includes all the usual features of the official website with easy to use navigation and opportunity to access a live stream of an event or even listen on the radio. The William Hill mobile app works on any of the latest smart phones or tables that run the Android or the iPhone operating system.

Getting the winnings out and withdrawing the funds back to a card or bank account is a relatively simple process with William Hill. For instance, a payout to a Visa or MasterCard can take 3 to 5 working days, while the E Wallet services (Skrill, PayPal, Neteller, and WebMoney) are slightly quicker with only 1 day needed to make a withdrawal. Other options include using online banking, but this type of service appears to have the slowest payout process with payments taking 5 to 10 working days to complete.


William Hill is a solid performer and does not really have any weakness. They offer a service that is very UK-centric, which mean the coverage for sports like horse racing and football is well covered and one of the best out there. There is certain to be plenty available for those interested in the football market and endless choices when it comes to in-play better, and of course this site includes great live video streaming for logged in users. Other useful features include the high-quality mobile app, radio/podcasts, and tip advisor section to help make your online betting experience that much more fun and interactive.

“William Hill is definitely challenging the way people look at other bookmakers.”
