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.

Player traffic used to be excellent at William Hill Poker in 2005, but it kind of took a dive after the UIGEA. Still, because it's a Cryptologic room, action is hot there these days too.

The support system is one of the best (live phone support 24/7) but then again, there are over 10,000 William Hill employees world-wide, so that shouldn't come as a surprise.

The Cryptologic software works well, looks average, and allows for 10 tables to be played at a time. That means that you'll have an easier time generating rake and releasing bonuses.

Talking about bonuses, William Hill will give you £250 as signup bonus without any deposit required. Of course, they won't just give it to you to have fun with, there's a way to obtain that bonus. Check above, where you'll find detailed information of how many MPPs you need to unlock the different batches of your bonus.

William Hill is keen on keeping its existing players active, so they offer a monthly bonus of up to £100.

As if the above offer weren't generous enough, you can also earn rakeback at William Hill. The 30% rake back is transferred into your player account once every week, on Monday or on Tuesday, which means you'll get your hands on your rakeback fairly soon.

Expect to find around 12,000 players in tournaments at peak hours, and about 3,500 at real money ring tables.

Obviously, if you sign up, player traffic won't be something you should worry about.
