William Hill has been in existence since 1934 and is one of the UK's biggest bookmakers both online and off. With a background in UK High Street betting, it is no surprise that the William Hill poker rooms attract a large number of British players as well as other European players. It's worth noting that William Hill poker does not accept players from the USA. But it's a popular site that has everything you could want in an online poker site:

  • A 200% up to £1200 signup bonus, and five free entries into a pair of freeroll tournaments on your first deposit.
  • A wide range of banking options supporting four major currencies, all with fast withdrawal paths.
  • Helpful and responsive customer support 24/7 no matter how difficult your questions.
  • Great traffic through lots of fishy tables and tournaments.

Games and Tournaments

The software must be downloaded before you can start to play at William Hill poker, but this is a very simple and quick task. Once downloaded, you will find the software has good functionality.

The games offered at William Hill poker include Texas Hold'em, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, Seven-Card Stud, Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo, and Five-Card Stud. Plenty of tournaments are available, with guaranteed prizes from £400 all the way up to the Sunday $250k tournament. There are also smaller free entry tournaments taking place daily, offering prizes of $25 -$100. A poker school feature helps newer players come to understanding the games better.

There are plenty of easy opportunities for relatively experienced poker players as the William Hill poker site attracts lots of passing punters with little or no poker experience. These fish swim in from the sports betting part of the website, making a lot of the games pretty loose.

William Hill MISSES

  • Software download required before you can play
  • Not the best site in terms of graphics and gameplay quality

Player Skill Levels

If you're after tables with flop percentages in the 50s, William Hill can offer them for you. It is never difficult for any poker player with a little knowledge to clean up in a soft game and boost their bankroll on the site. The site's popularity works both ways, though, and it is still possible to find a really tough game where you can test your card skills to the limit.

Like all of the great poker sites we offer, William Hill has a zero tolerance policy toward any form of cheating, and their tables are fair and balanced for players of all skill levels.


This great poker site is pretty heavily UK biased, the majority of tables featuring UK players. Even though traffic is not as high as some poker rooms online, the moderate traffic at William Hill has some advantages even for professional level players. Less traffic means even highly skilled poker players can practice new strategies or develop their skill at new poker varieties without worrying too much about the competition. They can also pick up some prize money while doing it.

Lower traffic levels also means competition is lighter, a good environment for catching a few fish and making some easy money while having fun. Even beginners who take the game seriously can have better odds when playing at lighter trafficked sites like William Hill.

It's not the best site in terms of graphics and playability, but it's decent enough and the software performs well. Players of all levels will find suitable games and tables where they can wager anywhere from £0.05 to £200.

  • William Hill always offers something seasoned poker players like. Have a play yourself and see how you get on.
