William Hill Casino Review Continued...
William Hill Casino Games
William Hill Casino has a large selection to choose from, with well over 150 slots, nearly 50 table games and assorted arcade, instant and video poker games, not to mention the live casino. Most are available in Practice Mode, but only when you download the software and set up a separate account for some reason.
Practice Mode allows you to try before you buy and get a feel for the games, but it is a shame that it is such an effort to launch it. Most of William Hill’s rivals allow you to play for free directly from the website, and that would be welcome here.
Once you have signed up and deposited, you can choose whether to wager on the main page or by using the free software. For those who have played at a few online casinos, you will recognise many of the Playtech games like Plenty O’Fortune, Monty Python’s Spamalot and Secrets of the Amazon alongside the Marvel comic tie-ins.
Playtech is world renowned for the standard of its games and so you can be sure that the playing experience is top notch. The company knows how to create the perfect table environment and, although the slots are not massively innovative, they are hugely popular and will satisfy a large number of users.
The mobile app features roughly 50 games arranged into categories like ‘Popular Games’ and ‘Casino Classics’. It’s a bit of a jumble and there is no option to search for your favourites. That said, it all scrolls cleanly with no sticking or freezing.
Although the site boasts of its 24-hour online support and claims to have an operator available in an average of 31 seconds, during the research for this review it took over 15 minutes for anyone to answer a query, which is concerning to say the least.
William Hill Bonuses and Promotions
William Hill offers two bonus tiers for new players, with 100% of your first deposit matched up to £150 for regular customers and a £300 bonus for those who open their account with £1,000 or more.
You will need to play through your deposit and bonus 20 times before you can withdraw any winnings, which is pretty decent in comparison to many of its rivals. It’s worth noting that only 25 percent of stakes on roulette and 20 percent on blackjack count towards the wagering requirement, although 100 percent of money played on slots and scratchcards counts.
The casino also runs a monthly loyalty scheme, a Comps Points system and a VIP club to keep existing customers happy, as well as a handful of promotions related to topical events.
William Hill has the name and reputation to attract players who will enjoy the selection of games on offer and the bonuses which appeal to both new and existing customers.
The main website is cluttered, the system for trying out games in free play is unnecessarily complicated and the online support takes a lot longer to deal with issues than it should, but the popular titles with decent gameplay and solid bonuses make William Hill casino a good bet.
