William Hill Poker Review
***THIS ROOM DOES NOT ALLOW USA PLAYERS***
The poker arm of William Hill is one of the more popular European rooms and is well known for its soft games, good traffic and good player offers. Since moving to the iPoker network (WH was formerly CryptoLogic platform), it has risen to one of the top rooms on the network through its offer of juicy games and good value player promotions. The site also shares player base with several other big sites including bet365poker.com and TitanPoker.com.
The key behind the success at WHP has largely been through the level of promotions the site regularly offers as well the offer of multi-currency deposits (available in Euro, Dollars and Pounds Sterling). The room has some innovative concepts including a proposition program where players get paid to play poker. This was first seen a long time ago on sites like UKBetting in which to encourage players to start new tables, players are propositioned with an amount that the room will pay them for starting off a new table.
William Hill are a big name when it comes to gaming - their Casino and Sports book are massive and they have a high number of casino players frequent the poker tables. Much like 888Poker and other sites that offer an integrated casino, there are loose games a plenty to be found. It also comes as little surprise that view flop percentages are regularly seen as high as 70%- 80%. Throughout 2014 WH has continued to push heavily incentivised offers and this looks set to continue into 2015. Join today and enjoy a sizeable £1,250 new player bonus in addition to1,000 WH player points. You'll also get a FREE £10 Side Game bonus to kick start your bankroll.
William Hill probably edges our bet365poker and Titanpoker on the presentation. The site is well laid out and there's a nice balance of graphics and promotions throughout (not overdone). The graphics and layout of the lobby is good and it includes all the trimmings you would expect from a top site. Games are very easy to find and navigation from the lobby and across all the features, structure is good. We are fans of the color coordination across the site - the room has a very nice feel to it with dark subtle colors. We don't think you'll be disappointed.
The site is on the iPoker network and following a fairly recent makeover of the site, the software is now very presentable and appealing whilst offering good functionality. Texas Hold'em, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, Seven Card Stud and Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo games can all be found and games vary between, No-Limit, Limit and Pot-Limit games. In addition there are short handed tables, popular Sit N go tournaments, speed poker and Heads up action.
The lobby shows limits, stakes, number of players, number waiting, average pot, hands played per hour and view flop percentages. The software also supports player notes, chat blocking and a game history. There is a proposition program which offers you the chance to get paid to play poker. You will from time to time be asked to accept an offer to start a new table (for a certain amount). If you agree you will be given that amount (usually an hourly rate).
The software also supports an integrated Casino with high stakes Blackjack as well as a huge number of other casino games on hand for the more adventurous.
By comparison to what's out there currently, this is a good offer. Considering over half the sign up offers available across the top 10 sites are $500 or under, the £1,250 bonus on offer is a chunky one. New players also get a free £10 Side Game bonus when they join, 1000 WH points and access to a host of other freerolls. The most popular of these is the weekly £1,000 depositor freerolls. Minimum deposit each week and you can add this to your regular weekly schedule.
To get this bonus, use the promotion code 'TOP15'. when you create your account. This will assign this full bonus to your account.

William Hill Leader boards

William Hill Poker is one of the most popular rooms in the iPoker network. At peak hours you will see up to 12,500 ring game players and up to 60,000 tournament players at the tables at peak hours. The room is attracting visitors at a much quicker rate following the vast improvements in the software and improved promotions.
The games can be really wild and are particularly loose in no limit games. William Hill Casino brings in A LOT of players to the poker tables and this is part reason why view flop percentages are as high as they are. Less folding = greater profitability. All good news for the seasoned player.
Customer Service is as you would expect from a room and brand of this size. Whilst live support is not available, there is a 24/7 customer support available and you can contact them by email. Response times are generally pretty quick.
We have had no negative feedback on this room. If you have something to feed back that you feel would be of interest to our visitors, please get in touch. See what other people are saying about this site in our William Hill Poker player reviews.
