William Hill is a brand that is known worldwide, so before you even start to question the legitimacy, you should know that William Hill sits on some of the major high streets across the United Kingdom. The online version of William Hill offers so much more, but still keeps the brand’s vision and ethos alive and well on the internet.
Having been around since the early 1930s, William Hill is one of the biggest bookmakers in the UK, and has since expanded its brand globally into the online market. In terms of actual stores and betting shops, William Hill is known in the UK and they partnered with Orbis and Playtech to make a success of their online casino operation.
Today, William Hill runs several different online casino sites under the WHG brand and Playtech has almost a 30% stake in the online brand. It has over 2,300 betting shops across the UK, with some located in the United States and Australia.
Fact William Hill is the official partner of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.
One of the first initial bonuses that you’ll get when you sign up with William Hill is a 100% buy-in bonus. It’s a welcome bonus that applies to new customers only, and only works with the casino and applies to a minimum of $10. When you first deposit anything to your online casino bank account, you’ll get 100% of it back in bonus money.
This welcome bonus only applies to $300 or less but when you do claim it, you’ll be subjected to the 40x wagering requirement. That means, you’ll have to play through $12,000 first, before you can withdraw any real money winnings. Since this only applies to casino play, some games may count more towards the requirement than others, but you’ll soon be able to rack up those winnings and clear the bonus requirements.
Another bonus that applies to all customers at William Hill casino is the Bonus Drop. Every day you’ll get a turn to win a range of prizes with the drop. These prizes will range from free spins to different kinds of bonuses. You select either the left, right or middle, and then drop and wait for it to fall and see if you’re a winner.
Sadly, the William Hill site design looks a little dated. It has one of those top internet menus that you might have seen at least a decade ago. Strangely though, the site still functions really well and perhaps it might not be in our specific taste, it’s more than functional.
The site is based on the blue colors of the brand with occasional yellow highlights and is structured quite well. Before you even get to the site, you’ll see all the bonuses and promotions that the site has to offer, followed by a page that is just filled with games and gaming options for everyone.
Some of the information is a little hard to find on the site. If you’re looking to speak to someone from their customer support team, there’s no little window or chat box that pops up. You’ll need to head to the help menu to find it. It’s not the end of the world, but it is an extra click that you didn’t have to make previously.
At William Hill, there are a fair amount of games that you can play. The games catalogue won’t rival many online casinos though as they only use Playtech and IGT games. However, that’s not necessarily a bad thing because both providers offer a rather expansive range of games, both in slots, table and live casino games.
As soon as you jump into the site and head to the Casino tab, you’ll see the best promotions at the top of the page. Just below that, there’s the list of all the casino games that you can get. The new games are up first, and these will be some of the newest and latest casino slot machines. Following on from that, you’ll see the classic and full list of slots. These will include regular slots and the progressive and jackpot slots.
Following on from that, then roulette is the next one that follows on the list. You can pick from Premium Roulette, French Roulette, Classic Roulette and many more. Blackjack falls under the next tab which is Card. Here, you’ll also see games like Casino Hold’em, Baccarat, 3 Card Brag and more.
There are live dealer options to choose from with Live Roulette, Live Blackjack, Live Baccarat, Lounge Blackjack and Live Football Roulette. There’s Live Casino Hold’em too and there are a fair few number of players on all of the tables.
The last few tabs are Jackpots and Promos. Underneath the Jackpots tab, you’ll find some of the best progressive jackpot games that you’ll see. There’s a big DC Comics range of games including Dark Knight, Suicide Squad, Batman Begins and Justice League. Many of these games have jackpots almost half a million Pound prizepool.
William Hill, as such a large online entity, has a load of online payment options that players can use to sign up and deposit. There are the classic methods of card payment like credit card and debit card, but also many different kinds of ewallets too. The most popular of these all appear to be VISA and MasterCard, with Neteler, Skrill, Paypal and uKash being among the most popular for depoits.
Should you have a need to get the money into your casino account as quickly as possible, you can also choose to have the deposits done through bank transfer with things like Paysafecard or Bank Wire. Bear in mind, most of these are instant, and all of them are free but Bank Wire may take a couple of working days to go through.
On the plus side, when you’re depositing, you’ll have the biggest maximum deposit with your debit card where most of the ewallets fall behind a little bit.
Playing out a scenario for your future self, imagine you’ve signed up at William Hill and you’ve hit it big. Now you want to withdraw the money from your casino account into your bank account. The quickest way to do this is to use one of the ewallets such as Skrill, Neteller, PayPayl, Instadebit or ClickandBuy. These process without 24-48 hours after William Hill has released the money.
The downside to using these ewallets is that the amount you can withdraw isn’t the maximum. In order to get that maximum, you’ll need to use debit or credit cards, or even the EntroPay method. All of these can take between 3 and 5 working days to process, but you’ll be able to claim a large sum of money. Choosing a Bank Transfer will get the money into your bank account directly, but may take up to 10 working days, and nobody ever wants to wait that long!

Security & Support
William Hill holds two different gambling licensed. Their UKGC license allows them to operate mainly in the UK, as its quite a big market for them. The Gibraltar Gaming Commission license that they have, allows them to operate in many other places too. In addition to them being licensed and registered, William Hill provides SSL encryption on their site and will always take care of your personal information.
Interestingly, the support side of William Hill is a bit of a change from the norm. You’ll be redirected in this case if you’re using the desktop, whereas the mobile just takes you straight there. We feel that this is likely the result of William Hill catering to mobile without having to change their front page to cater for everyone. We’ll cover that shortly in our Mobile Casino section.
William Hill offers a rather large FAQ section, and this is where you’ll likely find all their payment options, as well as burning questions that people have been asking. Should you decide that you’d like to contact someone from customer support, this is where the 24/7 support fits in. If you’re not a fan of live chat, then you can email or call William Hill too.
The mobile site for William Hill looks a little better than the desktop version. Just one click away, heading to the casino page, you’ll be presented with a very similar layout and menu, but you may notice that everything is loading a little faster, but there are also fewer games, though not by much.
At William Hill, the company prides itself on making sure that as many games are available on mobile as on desktop. It’s something that the company does well to do and we only noticed a couple of games missing from the mobile version. It’s far better than most other online casino sites.
William Hill offers no mobile app and that’s fine. The website works just as efficiently as any other and we don’t feel like we’re missing out due to the responsive site design that works across mobile devices.
It’s difficult not to recommend William Hill on all of the aspects we explored. Aside from the site being a little dated, the casino only having a smaller amount of games, and the high wagering requirements, the casino seems pretty solid. We often will play at sites like these because they have a reputation across the world and have many different land-based locations.
This means that if something does happen, at least you can hold the correct people accountable, something you wouldn’t be able to do at a casino that’s only online. The game offerings are great, and the site works wonders on mobile. It seems to be a great place to play online if you can look past a few of the eccentricities.
