William Hill is one of the largest bookmakers in the U.K. Their online poker room is a skin on the large iPoker Network. William Hill offers one of the best first-time deposit bonuses of any online poker room.
First time depositors receive a . The bonus will be displayed as dollars on the software lobby. This is a great first-time deposit bonus that is among the best in the industry.
The bonus is released in $5 increments for every 350 WH Points earned. This amounts to around a 43% refund on tournament entry fees. Players have 60 days to clear any remaining bonus money.
William Hill could stand to improve a bit in the promotions department. For how large of a brand they are, they really don't entice players as much as they could/should with interesting promotions.
There are a ton of tournaments with guaranteed prize pools at William Hill. Their largest tournament is a Sunday $200,000 event with a buy-in of $200+$15. All told, the iPoker Network guarantees some $16 million in tournament prize pools every month.
A strong selection of sit-n-gos are available, including jackpot tournaments that award big payouts to players who win a certain number of tournaments in a row. For example, there is a $25,000 jackpot to anyone who wins 6 consecutive $20+$3.50 6-max tournaments. Notice that the increased entry fee for these jackpot sit-n-gos render them a bad investment for players of nearly every skill ability.
The iPoker software has it's share of annoying bugs but overall isn't terrible. Multi-table tournament lobbies seem to have quite a few bugs when it comes to keeping stats like 'Players Remaining' updated.
Will Hill is translated into six languages and has a nice color theme.
In general, the competition is slightly easier here than at most sites. The William Hill sportsbook leads a lot of punters to the poker tables for a few hands. The higher-limit games do get pretty tough, but that's pretty much industry standard.
