William Hill is one of UK’s oldest and biggest bookmakers with a 70-year history of operations. It’s listed on the London Stock Exchange and its online platform is regulated by the government of Gibraltar, a jurisdiction white-listed by the UK government. This all serves to make it one of the most trusted, financially secure gaming companies out there, and its poker offering, which is in official partner of the England football team, is hugely popular among UK punters.
William Hill joined the iPoker Network in 2009, a huge network of over 20 different skins that collectively share one of the biggest player pools in the poker industry. That means that, as well as offering great player liquidity – meaning you won’t have to wait around too long to get the game of your choice – they’re also able to offer great bonuses, monthly rewards and promotions, big-field tournaments with big prizes, and all the great features that come with iPoker’s Playtech software.
The site offers a lot amount of guaranteed tournaments with prize pools ranging from £400 to the Sunday $250k. There are also plenty of satellites to big live events. Games offered are Texas Hold’em, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, Seven-Card Stud, Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo and Five-Card Stud, with a single password required to flit between casino games and the sports book.
iPoker sites often have softer competition because, like William Hill, so many skins on the network, are linked to sportsbooks, so sportsbettors will often trickle through to chance their arm at the poker tables.
William Hill offers more deposit methods than any other site – from credit cards to eWallets. Payouts are prompt and usually received within 24 hours.
Conclusion: Trusted bookie offers a top poker package
Playtech software is constantly being refined and updated so it remains at the cutting edge. This includes fully resizable tables for multi-tabling up to 12 tables at once, auto-top up, and a quick-seat option. Graphics are kept simple in favour of smooth flowing gameplay and the lobbies are intuitive and easily navigable.
Conclusion: Solid software from Playtech
Because it’s a site favoured by Europeans, peak hours are roughly between 7pm and 12pm UK time. As of March 2013, peak hours were garnering around 10,000 ring-game players and 55,000 tournament players.
Conclusion: Lots of fish!
