William Hill Poker Room Review

When it comes to playing poker online, William Hill is a hard option to go past. The company started as a UK bookmaker over 75 years ago and launched their online poker room at the start on the online poker boom. Being a publicly listed company, their site offers a level of transparency and trust that is lacking in other sites. This gives players an extra level of reassurance that they will conform with regulations and meet players expectations. Their poker room operates on the iPoker Network, but also provide a large number of additional gaming products including a casino, a sports book, skill games, Bingo and a Live casino. The site even recently launched a "Day Trader" program that allows players to play the market in a unique way.

William Hill Poker and the iPoker Network generally attract around 7,400 real money players at peak times, with the average during the day being around 4,000. This makes it the second largest non-US facing poker room behind Party Poker. William Hill Poker offers cash games - available in the dollar, euro and pound currencies - for various forms of Hold'em, Omaha and Stud games. As with most rooms, No Limit Hold'em is the most popular game but due to iPoker's size, players can also find good action at Pot Limt Omaha, Pot Limit Omaha Hi/Lo and Stud. iPoker's offers full ring games in 10 seats. Sit N Go players on iPoker can expect buy-ins up to $200+$15. Games such as Pot Limit Omaha and Pot Limit Omaha Hi/Lo also are more sporadic but action can generally still be found, at least at peak times. Multi-table tournament players can take advantage of a full schedule of action highlighted by a $200,000 guaranteed on Sunday, $65,000 on Saturday and $35,000 on Friday, as well as dozens of other guaranteed tournaments each day.

New players that make first deposit when signing up will be eligible for a bonus of 100% up to £1250, the equivalent of around $2,000. Making a first deposit at William Hill Poker will also award new players with four entries into the $1,000 New Depositors Freeroll. Clearing the bonus will require 50 William Hill Points per $1 bonus, releasing in $5 increments. Players will have 60 days to meet the terms of the sign-up bonus. Tracking bonus progress can be done via the "Bonuses" table in the William Hill Poker lobby. To earn William Hill Points players must make a a contribution to the pot and the hand must be raked. Players will receive anywhere from 0.20 for a $0.01 rake to 32 for a hand raked $3.01 or more. Points will be adjusted for currency rates if playing on a euro or pound table.

Though the iPoker Network does not offer rakeback, William Hill Poker has a great rewards system which more than compensates for this. The VIP Scheme consists of 10 levels, with progression based on the number of William Hill Points earned during a monthly period. The primary benefit of the program is that players are able to exchange William Hill Points for cash rewards at any time, up to $250,000. Players are given access to all cash bonuses once they have earned 500 William Hill Points or more during the month. Players are also given Points Boosts starting at 150% and reaching up to 750% of the base rate when reaching the top status level. Additional perks of the program include $1,000-$10,000 in VIP freerolls -- which vary according to VIP status level - access to a Loyalty Shop and even Live Sponsorship to players at the highest VIP level, "Royal Flush".

Depositing is not an issue at William Hill Poker with the site offering over two dozen options. Visa and Mastercard are available as per the norm, but also offer UK debit cards including Electron, Delta, Maestro, and Laser. Bank Wire and Personal Cheques can be used, although most players will probably prefer the immediate options. Ewallet options include Neteller, Skrill (Moneybookers), Click2pay and even Paypal. Additional options include Ukash, Webmoney, ClickandBuy and a bundle of region-specific methods such as Przelewy24, Giropay, Nordea, Poli and Sofurt. Withdrawals can made through E-wallets, Quick Cash, ClickandBuy, Bank Wire, personal cheque and credit/debit cards.

We hope you enjoy all William Hill has to offer and good luck at the tables.
