Special First Deposit Bonus of up to €100!
William Hill is one of the better providers of the iPoker network for us. There are enough limits and games, the tournaments are well filled and besides the customer service can and payment management is impressive. If we would improve something, it would be the missing poker app for smartphone and tablet. Otherwise we recommend everyone to visit William Hill Poker and don’t forget the sign up bonus up to 100 Euro.
The origins of William Hill can be traced back to 1934 and at that time the company started out as a bookmaker and still provided its customers with sports betting right on the spot in the old fashioned way. In addition, at that time, the company still kept “books” on the bets placed, as nothing else existed at that time. However, the provider did not stand still in time, but has developed over the decades into William Hill plc and today employs more than 17,000 employees worldwide and in addition over 2,300 betting offices in Great Britain. Over the years, William Hill has not only acquired expertise, but also enjoys the great trust of its customers.
William Hill is one of the most popular places to go for sports betting and can also score points with its wide range of poker offers. In our following test report we not only discuss what William Hill Poker has to offer, but also look at how William Hill Poker works and how reputable the provider is in the poker business.
WILLIAM HILL POKER REVIEWS: ADVANTAGES & STRENGTHS
William Hill has simply never done anything wrong and the William Hill Poker Arena offers poker variations such as Texas Hold’em, Omaha and Stud. There are also tournaments, SGs and satellites that can get you a seat at the world’s biggest poker tournament, the WSOP or WPT. To ensure that there are always opponents, William Hill Poker is a member of the renowned iPoker network, which means that up to 12,000 poker fans come to William Hill at peak times. The software is therefore also provided by Playtech.
If the prize pools are added up, the monthly guaranteed sum is around $20 million. But besides the good games and the prize pools, our William Hill Poker experience has also been very good in the area of bonus offers.
HOW TO REGISTER AT WILLIAM HILL POKER
At William Hill Poker you can decide whether you want to download the software immediately or whether you want to access the poker site as normal. To register, simply click on the green “Register Now” button in the top right hand corner and a new window will open. There all relevant data will be entered, from the e-mail address, mobile number to address.
You can complete the registration by clicking on “Create my account”. William Hill Poker will then send you a confirmation email with a link. Click on this link and your account is activated. For us the registration process has proven to be easy and is completed within minutes. This means you get 9 out of 10 points here.
POKER OFFER & PAYOUT: SHORT SUMMARY
Our William Hill Poker experience tells us that the provider is all about Hold’em, Omaha and Stud Poker. In terms of limits, the British poker provider uses No, Pot and Fixed Limit. Unfortunately, we have searched in vain for games such as Draw, HORSE, HOSE, Razz and also Badugi, although this is due to the fact that the field of players at peak times, with around 12,000 players, can be described as rather solid.
For this reason, it is more important to bet on the most popular and lucrative poker variants, so that the field is not too broadly spread and some players lack the opponents. We also learned from the William Hill Poker experience that there were often worse players at the tables and this can help you to play poker successfully.
THE WILLIAM HILL POKER TOURNAMENTS
Since William Hill Poker is a member of the iPoker network, Playtech software is also used here and therefore the provider has the same portfolio as the other providers that are networked in it. Therefore, William Hill Poker also offers tournaments with guaranteed prize pools, Sit & Goes, satellites and freerolls. We have tested almost all games and found that especially in the areas with low buy-ins there is a lot going on and the opponents can be quite weak. Furthermore, we were able to experience the William Hill Poker experience that multi-tabling is possible with up to 16 tables. Once the software has been downloaded, the table design and deck color can be changed, which is especially helpful when multi-tabling. Here you get 8 out of 10 points.
WILLIAM HILL POKER EXPERIENCE WITH THE WEBSITE
Every poker room looks the same within the iPoker network and Playtech takes care of that. Only the color and other small features make the difference. Many people see this as a disadvantage, but we don’t share this opinion because it makes it easy to change providers within the iPoker network. But a disadvantage here is that no other iPoker room can help if you don’t like the complete software. But basically it is very clearly arranged, so that even a beginner can find his way around quickly.
Only the design of William Hill Poker looks a bit old-fashioned, but that doesn’t bother you when playing. The software also has the usual functions at William Hill and that means that it can be personalized. If you don’t want to download the software, you can also play directly in the browser, but in this case you will have to make do with some compromises. The software itself runs as usual smoothly and smoothly and simply leaves nothing to be desired. Based on our William Hill Poker experience, we award 8 out of 10 points here.
WILLIAM HILL POKER APP: NO POKER APP YET
Within our William Hill Poker review we actually wanted to deal with this question: How does the William Hill Poker App work? Unfortunately, we had to come to the conclusion that it does not exist yet. For quite some time now, customers have been waiting for a poker app from the provider in order to be able to access the poker offer on the move.
Even a mobile version, i.e. an optimized website does not exist yet and here William Hill still has to improve. Although the sports betting and casino areas are already mobile accessible but that was it. So we should actually give 0 of 10 points here, but since the casino app allows video poker and also a live casino hold’em variant, William Hill Poker receives 5 of 10 points from us here.
WILLIAM HILL POKER POKER BONUS: THIS IS WHAT NEW CUSTOMERS GET
Another question that has been bothering us is, how much is the William Hill Poker bonus? Our experience with William Hill Poker has been very positive, as the poker provider offers a bonus of up to 100 euros. The bonus money balance is divided into three levels:
- 7€ cash game ticket
- 3€ tournament tickets
- 100€ bonus balance
In other words, with a deposit of 10€ the player receives a 100€ bonus and 10 free spins. Please note that this bonus is only available to members of the Player Club and is valid for 45 days from the date of crediting. You can read more about the William Hill Poker bonus in our separate review. For us, the implementation and calculation of the bonus money is a bit complicated and a beginner might throw in the towel very quickly. In the poker software the bonus release can be tracked in the personal player account under bonus money info.
We award 7 out of 10 points here and justify this with the rather opaque explanation of the bonus offer. On the positive side, however, we would like to mention that only 10 Euros deposit is required. For beginners this deal is perfect!
HOW DOES WILLIAM HILL POKER WORK FOR EXISTING CUSTOMERS?
Existing customers can also benefit from an attractive offer, such as freerolls, weekly cash game tickets, the poker school and other offers for existing customers. The latter also includes the extensive VIP program including a store where the collected points can be exchanged for cash bonuses, hardware and much more. There are also reload bonuses and much more.
The VIP Club is called the “Players Club” and in this club, players earn WHP points (WHPs) with their wagers at the real money tables and buy-ins. Here we give them 8 out of 10 points.
DEPOSITS & WITHDRAWALS: A DIVERSE PAYMENT PORTFOLIO
William Hill Poker offers all major payment options to make a deposit. Meanwhile, William Hill Poker also offers PayPal, which also underlines the seriousness of the company. Because the American payment offerer does not enter by any means carelessly with a gambling offerer a co-operation, but submits these to a very strict examination.
Beside the American e-wallets there are a lot of other payment options available and here our William Hill Poker test report turns out very positive, because the provider is very transparent in this area from the first minute on.
|Payment method||Minimum deposit||Maximum deposit||Processing time|
|Credit Card Visa, Maestro & Diners Club||10 Euro||99.000 Euro||Immediately|
|Entropay||10 Euro||99.000 Euro||Immediately|
|Paysafecard||10 Euro||1.000 Euro||Immediately|
|Skrill||10 Euro||100.000 Euro||Immediately|
|Giropay||10 Euro||12.000 Euro||Immediately|
|Neteller||10 Euro||32.000 Euro||Immediately|
|PayPal||10 Euro||8.000 Euro||Immediately|
|Fast Bank Transfer||20 Euro||12.000 Euro||1 – 5 Working days|
|Bank transfer||30 Euro||120.000 Euro||3 – 5 Working days|
|Check||25 Euro||100.000 Euro||Up to 10 Working days|
When making a withdrawal, the verification of the account must be carried out first. This is an essential part of the withdrawal process and only if the player clearly identifies himself, we can send the money to William Hill Poker. Once the verification has been completed, the cashout will be released and this should be done within 48 hours after the necessary documents have been submitted. This verification is only required for the first withdrawal, so subsequent withdrawals will be processed faster. Our William Hill Poker experience shows that there are no fees for deposits or withdrawals. Due to the extensive payment methods, which we have not listed all, but simply picked out the most important ones, and the presence of PayPal, we give 9 out of 10 points here.
SUPPORT & CUSTOMER SERVICE AT WILLIAM HILL POKER
In this area, our William Hill Poker experience has been very positive as the customer support is available 24/7 via live chat, phone and email. For example, a free 0800 number is offered for German customers, although William Hill points out that for security reasons and for training purposes the calls are recorded.
We don’t find anything objectionable in it, but those who don’t want that can also contact the support via email. The answers are all competent and friendly through the bank. The live chat responds within a few seconds and there too, friendly and professional information is available.
There are also two FAQ sections: the William Hill FAQ and the Poker FAQ. These two are very comprehensive and everyone should find the answers to their questions and problems there in advance. In our opinion, William Hill Poker has done an excellent job in providing the best possible support, and our many years of experience in sports betting will certainly be rewarded. But still here you get 10 out of 10 points.
SECURITY & SERIOUSNESS: SECURITY IS WRITTEN IN CAPITAL LETTERS HERE
Security is a top priority at William Hill Poker, as it is in the other areas, because after all, the poker arena must also live up to the big name. On the poker site, the provider also supports responsible gambling, which is already evident in the registration, where the customer himself can set a deposit limit from the very beginning. William Hill Poker is a member of important and well-known organizations such as GamCare, Gamblers Anonymus, Responsible Gambling Trust and the Gibraltar Betting and Gaming Association.
Only the best and most up-to-date encryption technology is used for data transmission and the random generator is also checked at regular intervals. Here, everyone can be sure that everything is in order and that there is no trace of fraud far and wide. Our rating: 10 out of 10 points.
OUR WILLIAM HILL POKER CONCLUSION: A TOP PROVIDER ALL ALONG THE LINE
Our William Hill Poker experience shows that the provider can convince all along the line. Although the bonus and its rollover conditions could be explained a bit more clearly, so that even a beginner can get the hang of it more quickly, there is a more than attractive bonus amount in return. Another small flaw is the lack of the poker app, but here too there is a compensation: the casino app with live casino hold’em and video poker. So here the provider could still improve a little.
But otherwise William Hill Poker passed our poker comparison with flying colors and we can say that this poker site is just as recommendable for beginners as for the poker professionals. The former are here particularly well cared for, since they meet also more frequently lighter opponents and thus one has here substantially better chances to qualify for a live event compared with PokerStars. The payment options and customer support also shone in our test, as did the poker offer. The bottom line is that William Hill Poker scored 85 out of a possible 100 in our test. Thus the offerer lines up into the league of the Top 10 and we can express here only one registration recommendation.
