The Betting Veteran is an expert on betting. With decades of experience built up from visiting the bookmakers of old, to the modern world of online bookmakers and in-play bets, the Betting Veteran has never failed to move with the times. The Betting Veteran has built up more expertise than anyone else and plans to share it with you.
William Hill are one of the biggest and most famous bookmakers in the UK. At 85 years old, William Hill has got nearly as much experience as the Betting Veteran! They offer markets on a wide range of different sports and have a very slick website that makes it really easy to navigate to where you would like to go. William Hill covers a number of different betting options for players, including accumulators and spread betting.
William Hill mobile review
The William Hill mobile site loads up very quickly. It is essentially a stripped-down version of the desktop site. It has easy access to the menu, which takes you to all of the relevant areas of the website. The colours are easy on the eye but still stand out to make everything easy to see. It does everything that a mobile site should offer, without taking too much data to accomplish it.
Despite this, the William Hill mobile site is not limited or minimalist. Everything is scaled wonderfully and allows full access to the entire site. There is a list of current in-play games in addition to upcoming fixtures. This allows for any games that are coming up to be opened up very quickly. The Betting Veteran will confirm that there is nothing worse than having to wade through numerous sub-menus to find an in-play game. There is also a list of the most popular sports near the top of the page, which makes it easy to find the specific sport you need.
The overall look of the William Hill mobile site is clean and smooth. Everything loads up at a very fast pace, all sports and markets are easy to find, and the menu opens up quickly. It offers everything that you might need from a mobile site, without losing out on what the desktop site offers.
What bonuses does William Hill offer?
The main welcome bonus that William Hill offer to new players is a £30 matched bet when placing £10 on a single bet if you use the code C30 when signing up. Once the bet comes in, players are awarded three £10 bets in addition to any winnings from their initial bet. The terms for the free bets are that the stake is not returned on the bets, and they must be used within 30 days of being awarded. In addition, any each-way bets that are placed will only pay out the winning section of the stake.
While not a bonus as such, William Hill do also choose various bets to boost the odds on each day. The logo to signify this is a yellow arrow inside a blue circle. If this logo is shown, then it means that the odds have been boosted and greater winnings are available if you place this wager. The Betting Veteran sees this as similar to a bonus, as if your bet comes in, you are paid out more winnings, and you will have received some extra funds.
What sports are available to bet on?
William Hill offers a very wide range of sports to gamblers. They cover the traditional favourites of bookmakers, such as football, horse racing, cricket and rugby, but they extend their sportsbook offerings by offering American sports and the relatively new market of eSports.
- In total, William Hill has 32 sports available
- They have 34 different wagering markets though if you include politics and lotteries
What features does William Hill offer?
William Hill makes it very easy to follow the games on which you have placed wagers. A large selection of sports has live streaming options. It is not just football that they offer this for either. There are plenty of other sports that have live streams available. For the Betting Veteran, this is a lifesaver, as there is nothing worse than placing an in-play bet without being able to keep tabs on the action. William Hill offers this ability to gamblers.
There is also a wide range of stats on offer to gamblers. This allows for much more informed choices to be made, especially when indulging in an in-play bet. If you can see how the game is going on in terms of stats, then it is a lot easier to decide whether you should be making the bet or not.
Another excellent feature on offer is your odds feature. This allows you to ask for a specific bet that William Hill does not currently have available. You do this via social media by using the #YourOdds hashtag. Once you have asked, they will put together the odds and the wager will be available on their site. It is a nice feature that helps for when the perfect bet pops into your head but your bookmaker does not have it on offer.
Betting Veteran pays a visit
The best thing that the Betting Veteran spotted when he paid a visit to William Hill was the simplicity of the layout. Everything is nicely laid out. Everything is easy to find, and the menu at the top of the page means that everything is just one click away. The William Hill branding makes it obvious that you are visiting one of the famous old bookmakers, but the site is certainly not living in the past. The sheer number of sports events that were on offer to stream is a sight to behold! The Betting Veteran was highly impressed with how much sport he could watch while having a cheeky flutter.
On the whole, William Hill offers exactly what you would expect from one of the oldest players in the game. Just like the Betting Veteran has built up a level of expertise after years of experience, so have William Hill. The website is fast and reacts to every click at lightning speed. There is a wide range of markets on offer for a huge number of sports. It ensures that every last need you might have is taken care of.
Part of this comes from your odds feature, which is a very nice touch. The ability to craft almost any bet you like, even if they do not have it available, is a very good feature to have. There is an abundance of streaming options available, which makes keeping up with the action in your bets a simple task. Overall, William Hill offers an excellent betting experience, albeit with a slightly lacklustre bonus for new players.
- The site is designed superbly
- The YourOdds feature is very good
- There are a large number of streaming options available
- There are a large number of sports and markets on offer
