William Hill Casino

You have to give credit to the longevity of William Hill, a company that first started taking sports bets more than 80 years ago.

It still has a collection of betting shops on the high street, but has diversified significantly and now boasts a sublime online presence that includes its casino channel, and that has enabled it to reach a new audience in New Zealand and across the globe.

William Hill entered into an exclusive partnership with Playtech back in 2008, and it hasn't looked back since.

Welcome Bonus

William Hill has decided to keep things nice and simple with its welcome bonus, so players can enjoy a 100% top up on their first deposit with the brand.

You can start with a minimum of £10 or deposit any amount up to £300, and this will be doubled in ‘play money’ by the brand. The wagering requirements are 40x, and you have seven days to work through these.

As far as stake contributions are concerned, 100% of the funds you stake on pokies will go towards ‘paying off’ your wagering requirements, which is great news.

And here’s a little boost for players who favour live casino action: with William Hill, if you stake £20 you will be handed £5 in bonus funds, with wagering requirements of just 20x. Note that you have to opt in to this offer.

Desktop vs. Mobile Experience

Getting the navigation right on a casino site, where there's typically a lot of information to display, can be difficult.

But William Hill makes a good fist of things on its site, and the key foundation for that is the top header bar, which stays locked in place and allows you to switch between the casino, live dealer games, poker and bingo in an instant.

From the casino sub-page, we're greeted with the classic thumbnail-heavy gallery of games that are available, although thankfully wayfinding is made easier by the sub-categories: Slots, Table, Live Dealer, Card, Jackpots and New. The only downside is that there isn’t a search bar to use.

As far as the mobile side of things is concerned, the browser site is simply a scaled-down version of the desktop hub. By and large that’s no problem as it works well on smaller screens, although you could argue that by now it should have a purposely-built mobile site for its players to enjoy.

There are a pair of apps available for iOS and Android devices, and these take the brand’s mobile offering up a notch. Easy to use and featuring rapid loading times, the William Hill app is a superb addition to the brand’s armoury.

Payments and Banking

To kick things off, William Hill accepts all of the major credit and debit card brands – Visa, Mastercard and Maestro – with instant deposits and withdrawals taking between 1-3 working days.

Then there’s a whole litany of e-wallets that the brand accepts, which include PayPal, Skrill, Neteller, WebMoney and Yandex. Timescales and maximum deposits vary for each, so be sure to check out the payments page.

Finally, there are various online banking and bank transfer options available too.

Game Variety at William Hill Casino

At the last count there were 125 pokies available to play at William Hill, including Age of the Gods, The Dark Knight and The Matrix. And there’s a healthy library of table games too, with standard and unique versions of roulette, blackjack and poker all available.

There’s a selection of jackpot pokies too, where seven-figure payouts are often won. At the time of writing, six of the fifty-plus jackpot pokies at William Hill were offering prizes in excess of £1 million.

As already mentioned, Playtech has been a key part of the casino’s rise in the past few years, and since then the brand has also added some titles from the likes of IGT and Evolution Gaming.

Indeed, it is Evolution which powers the live casino, where alongside all of the usual formats you can try your hand at the gameshow Dream Catcher and the popular Football Studio game.

Betting Limits

There is a decent range of betting limits available at William Hill, so those on a tighter budget and high rollers alike will be satisfied.

Unfortunately, unlike some live casinos it doesn't show you the min/max limits prior to joining a table, and so there is some guesswork on the part of the player.

That said, there are plenty of ways to win big: one lucky player scooped a £2.5 million jackpot on Valentine’s Day back in 2016, which is some love story.

Customer Support

The ‘Help & Support’ dropdown menu is easy to find in the top right-hand corner of the screen, and that serves up a number of options: contacting the customer support team directly, or visiting the FAQ section of the site where your answer may already lie.

There’s a live chat feature, a direct email or separate telephone hotlines for UK and international players.

Responsible Gambling Features

William Hill takes responsible gambling very seriously, and that’s why all players have a ‘gambling controls’ button available on their dashboard.

You can set deposit limits, set reminders for specific time periods you’ve been on the site, self-exclude and close your account entirely.

Our Verdict

Despite the odd design flaw, the William Hill Casino is an exceptional platform for gamers of all tastes and budgets. There’s a fantastic range of pokies and table games, plus an industry-leading app and a generous welcome bonus.
