The relatively new William Hill Poker site has been working hard to give players what they want. Thanks to some clever new updates, their software is one of our favorite platforms, and since it's powered by Playtech that's no surprise. With a vast array of bonuses and tournaments plus one of the largest selections of deposit methods, William Hill Poker is hard to fault. Unless of course you're American, in which case you'll never know.
BIG Bonus Lineup
William Hill Poker is the site that keeps on giving. As a Gambling Planet reader, when you download the William Hill software package you'll immediately be greeted with a $30 no deposit bonus offer. They also offer a 100% first deposit match of up to $600. Many poker room promotions begin and end with these welcome bonuses, but William Hill goes above and beyond. New players will also get four entries to the $1000 new depositors freerolls (not just the qualifiers) and one entry to a new depositors prize freeroll. Returning players will also be privy to the WHPoints program, friend referrals, a bad beat jackpot, a best hand of the day bonus, daily and weekly freerolls, jackpot sit 'n' gos and a whole slew of special event promotions.
Don't Worry—It's Playtech
William Hill Poker went to the best when they chose their software: Playtech. They're constantly making usable updates to their platform, and the newest version allows you to choose between the traditional three-pane lobby or a cleaner two-pane lobby that reloads fluidly with minimal filters thanks to expandable menus on the left hand side and game icons in the main screen. In addition to the traditional game filters, you can now also choose your table by your preferred form of currency. While there are still some issues manually resizing windows for multi-tabling, the site does offer automatic cascade and tile options.
Action Across the Board
In addition to traditional Texas Holdem, you'll find Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo, Five Card Stud and Seven Card Stud ring games. Their Omaholics promotion has been pumping the numbers at the Omaha tables. William Hill Poker is also one of the few online poker rooms that offers tables for stud games and actually fills the seats. During peak hours, you'll see several full tables on the Seven Card tab and recent action in Five Card too. The stakes range for each is as follows:
- Holdem stakes of $.01/$.02 to $300/$600
- Omaha stakes of $.02/$.04 to $100/$200
- Stud stakes of $.05/$.10 to $100/$200
The site regularly pulls in 20-30,000 players, approximately half of which can be found at the real money tables. The level of the competition varies with the stakes, but if you're still perfecting your skills you can try one of the site's designated beginners tables.
Sit and Gos Galore
William Hill Poker's tournament schedule is impressive, but where they really excel is in their sit 'n' gos. Players can regularly choose between Holdem and Omaha, turbos, super turbos, heads up, short stack, double stack, short handed, one-handed, satellite, beginner, and jackpot games with buy ins of as little as $1 or as much as $5000 for a heads up high roller seat. If you're looking for cheap action, William Hill also offers daily $25 freerolls, a VIP freeroll, a $1000 new depositors freeroll, a prize depositors freeroll, and a $5000 side games freeroll. The site has ongoing satellites to a host of landbased events around the world. Start at the bottom with a $.50 qualifier or compete in the $1 million guaranteed for a $500 buy in.
Nineteen Deposit Options
Once again, while any American's attempt to deposit will be rejected, William Hill Poker offers it's other members 19 convenient ways to make their deposits. In addition to the recommended debit card, credit card and eWallet options, William Hill is one of the few online gambling sites that also takes Paypal deposits. Regardless of which method you choose, all deposits are processed instantly, so you won't have to wait a day to play.
Unlike some sites that have massive withdrawal minimums, William Hill processes cashouts of as little as $5. Services like Neteller and QuickCash are instant, and the rest of the site's preferred cashout options (with the exception of a check) will get you your money in no more than 3-5 days.
