William Hill provides a full online betting service for thousands of customers across the UK. With a comprehensive range of sports and markets available, combined with further offers ranging from live casino gaming to poker, they have evolved to become one of several leaders in the UK betting industry.
How to download the app
William Hill has an iOS app that is available for download as well as an Android version. For the iOS app, players can simply visit the app store, type in William Hill and download the app free of charge. After doing this they can log in to their account as normal.
To download the app for Android, players must follow a different process. This is shown in the necessary steps outlined below.
- Visit the William Hill mobile site
- Click on the link to download the Android version of the app
- Go to security settings on the Android device, and look for ‘unknown sources’
- Then open the downloads folder, and select the William Hill download to complete installation
While the process required to download the Android app is lengthier, the app functions just like the iOS version. The Android app is also free to download, and members can login to their account by entering their email address and password.
For both apps, the welcome package is identical to what is available on the desktop site. New members will receive their £30 welcome bonus after making their first £10 deposit. Besides the welcome package, the range of available bonuses is exactly the same as the desktop site. This means there are no exclusive offerings from the mobile app.
William Hill did previously have an Android only offer, but they have since removed this for some reason.
Play on William Hill App
Play poker on Mobile
At this moment in time, poker is actually the one section that isn’t available from the William Hill app. Other casino offerings such as roulette and table games can be played from the app.
Sports Bet on Mobile
William Hill places a great deal of emphasis on marketing themselves as high-end sport-betting providers. For this reason, it comes as no surprise that the sport betting section of their mobile app is of a very high quality. Some of the key features are shown below.
- Live Streaming
It’s one thing to be able to bet on the go, but it’s even better when players can actually watch the game they have bet on from their mobile device. This is what William Hill provides for a vast range of their sports. Players can also rotate their device to watch the various games in full screen mode.
- In-Play Betting
While this is common in most of the UK Internet betting apps, it is a feature that still attracts many customers. It is the nature of in-play betting that players need to access their account instantly if they are to lock in any fluctuating odds. By having this feature on the mobile app, players will not miss out on potential fluctuations.
- Minimum Wager Amount
From the mobile app the minimum wager is just £0.03. This is specifically for in-play bets, but it allows players to place a wager on a game regardless of their available account balance. By having this low-end minimum, players can start experiencing in-play betting and see if they prefer this to just regular betting.
- Deposit and Withdrawal Availability
Players can now fund their account as well as withdraw from their account from the mobile app. Previously, players would have to go through the process of logging in to the desktop site if they wanted to deal with any monetary transactions. William Hill has now implemented this feature into both their Android and iOS platform.
- Top Bets
This is a pretty cool feature of the app, as it allows players to see which events users of the app are betting on the most. This section is accessible from just one click at the top of the home screen, and eliminates the need for players to scroll around the app in order to find the key daily events.
- Similar Range of Sports and Markets
It can sometimes be the case that there are fewer options regarding this for mobile app users. William Hill has a rather consistent offering compared with the desktop site, and all of the major sports can be accessed from the mobile app. Players must simply follow the sports icon in the top left to view what sports they can bet on.
Live Broadcast on Mobile
Live streaming is available across a large range of sports with the William Hill app. It is a requirement that players must have either an active bet or money in their account to access this feature. Providing these conditions are met, there are quite literally hundreds of events that can be streamed from the relative mobile devices. In addition to this, full screen viewing is available. Players must simply rotate their devices to optimize the stream to fit the screen.
William Hill other assets
Interestingly, William Hill does not allow a player to cash out their in-play bets. This is highly unusual for a bookmaker of this size and reputation. Furthermore, most of their major competitors do offer this option. Whether this actually deters customer’s remains to be seen, yet this is a highly favourable feature that has been left out.
The promotions available from the mobile platforms are basically identical to what is available from the desktop site. This applies to both the Android and iOS version of the app, as well as the actual mobile site. The promotions available are shown below.
- £30 welcome bonus
- Golden goal
- Money back – horse racing
- Accumulator bet boost
