William Hill Review Continued...
William Hill has a good lineup of sports markets to bet on, ranging from obscure sports such as bandy and hurling, to the more popular games like football and cricket. There are also a number of markets for politics and television to choose from. Generally, the more popular the event is, the greater the betting options are and there is a massive range of bets available on football and racing markets. Both feature upcoming events from all corners of the globe, with a good range of specials and alternative bet-types to keep even the most demanding customers happy.
You’d have to say that William Hill’s sportsbook is a little bit of a disappointment when it comes to appearance, particularly given its stature in the industry. The visuals appear distinctly old-fashioned and frankly quite dull with a huge amount of information crammed onto the homepage, making it a little confusing for first-time users and not particularly appealing on the eye. There is also a distinct lack of images to help draw you to a particular sport or event, which doesn’t help. That said, it is hardly offensive and there are some nice touches such as the bet in-play graphics and live streaming.
Functionality and Features
William Hill delivers the goods when it comes to functionality and features, with a smooth interface and a bunch of fantastic features including bet in-play, live streaming, radio broadcasts, podcasts and its very own news blog. There’s also a handy results section which allows you to navigate through various sports to see detailed results and information on recent fixtures. The William Hill radio station also deserves a special mention, with expert commentary and analysis from big names in cricket, darts, snooker and more.
William Hill has a dedicated Promotions page with a great range of bonus offers to suit bettors in various different markets. Football fans are looked after with money back on accumulators that miss out by one team, a second chance on first goalscorer bets, refunding your stake if they score second and bore draw insurance. Likewise racing fans are kept happy with the best odds guaranteed, whilst you will receive a £25 refund on any losses accrued in your first day of betting on financial markets. There are also some incredible one-off offers such as the £50 million Prem Predictor at the start of the 2015/16 season, which guaranteed a share of £50 million for anyone who correctly ordered the 20 Premier League teams by the end of the season.
William Hill is one of the UK’s oldest betting institutions and it’s fair to say that its sportsbook does look a little dated. However, with a great range of markets, excellent features and a generous set of bonus promotions, there is more than enough on show to make it a solid choice.
