William Hill Poker Bonus
William Hill Poker offers a 100% match bonus up to $2000 / £1250 / €1400 on first deposits. This means that you receive a bonus equal to the amount of your initial deposit, up to a maximum of $600. In order to release your bonus from your pending bonus account you must clear the bonus by earning WH points. Every 350 WH points you earn will clear $5 of your bonus. In tournaments you earn 10 WH points for every $1 you pay in entry fees. For example if you play a $20+$2 tournament you will earn 20 WH points. In cash games you receive WH points depending on the amount of rake taken in a cash game hand that you were dealt into. The amount ranges from 0.5 WH points for rakes below $0.20, up to 16 WH points for rakes over $3. Any amount of your bonus that has not been cleared after 30 days will be lost.
William Hill Poker Traffic
William Hill Poker is a part of the very large iPoker network (same network as Titan Poker) that has an average of 11,300 cash game players online at a time. The iPoker network has the third largest player base of all online poker rooms and networks. William Hill Poker offers cash games between $0.01/$0.02 and $100/$200, which shows that William Hill offers games for everyone. The hold em and Omaha tables contain the majority of the action at William Hill Poker.
The tournament schedule at WilliamHillPoker is very extensive with many varieties of buy-ins and tournament styles. There are a lot of guaranteed tournaments with prize pools ranging from $30K up to $250K. The biggest weekly tournament is the Sunday $250K guaranteed that takes place at 7pm EST every Sunday and has a buy-in of $320. William Hill also has many sit and go tournaments if you just want a quick game. There are a lot of varieties of sit and go’s at all stakes. The jackpot sit and go’s are very popular on the iPoker network. There are $2, $5, $20 and $50 jackpot sit and go’s that you can take part in. In order to win the jackpot you must win 5 or 6 consecutive tournaments depending on which jackpot you are trying to win. For example the $20 sit and go jackpot is called the “Rio”. If you win 6 of these tournaments consecutively you win the jackpot prize of over $25K.
William Hill Software and Graphics
William Hill Poker has very smooth running software with a lobby that is very easy to navigate. The game play is a little slower than average at William Hill Poker with the cards taking slightly more time to deal than at most other online poker rooms. There are two different table views at William Hill Poker. There is the regular screen which has avatars and takes up a quite a bit of the screen and there is the miniature view, which decreases the size of the table to a small box that takes up very little of the screen. The miniature table view is great for multi-tabling because you can fit about 6 tables onto your screen very easily. William Hill also has a separate section in the poker software for casino games such as blackjack, roulette and video poker.
William Hill Poker Competition
The competition at Will Hill Poker is fairly average. Even though WilliamHill is a sports book and casino so you would expect a lot of fish, they are a part of the very competitive iPoker network, which means you must play against the players from a lot of other poker rooms. If you are just looking for fish, then the tournaments are the place for you. A lot of the tourneys are of the low buy-in variety and there are often a lot of loose donkeys trying their luck. The one good thing about the slow game play mentioned above is that there will likely be less professional players playing on the network because pros want to play as many poker hands as they can as quickly as possible to improve their return.
