Rakeback is paid to your poker account once a week, every Tuesday.
Grandfathered players can receive a 100% match on their first deposit up to $600 / £400 / €450 payable in bonus dollars.
How to Claim it: All you have to do is make a first deposit in the “My Account” area and then start playing for Real Money. Each time you play WH will award you with WHPoints, and for every 700 WHPoints you earn, WH will release another $10 to your “Pending Bonus Dollars” balance. You have up to 60 days to release the full bonus amount, so it’s up to you to play as much as you can.
You can see how many WHPoints you need in order to release the full amount, or how much time you have left, simply by clicking on the “Bonuses” tab in the menu.
£250 New Player Bonus. All new players enrolling within ANY calendar month will have until the end of the next calendar month to earn MPPs towards their bonus target. For example, a player joining on October 13, 2008 will have until November 30, 2008 to earn their bonus.
NOTE: Once your New Player Bonus period has expired, you are automatically transfered to the Monthly Loyalty Bonus, where you can earn from £25 to £100 - every month.

According to William Hill, the method used to calculate rake/rakeback is the dealt rake method.
As from March 1, 2008 William Hill changed their rakeback structure where new players and players not qualified as grandfathered accounts will receive 30% gross rakeback.
William Hill review
William Hill is a long-standing and well respected European gambling operator. They started out in sports betting and they have an online casino too (which I had the pleasure of playing at myself) Whether this is really significant from an online poker point of view, I'm not sure, but word has it, that whenever a poker operator has a sports book and a casino too, rookies will abound at the poker tables. The theory is, that casino gamblers and sports bettors do not make good poker players, but they'll give it a go anyway. Thus there will be very good value in these games for good poker players.
