William Hill Review
William Hill are one of the British based companies that have come to Australian shores over the past few years to ply their trade in a flourishing online betting marketplace here in Australia.
William Hill are one of the biggest betting agencies in the world covering numerous areas not just limited to online sports betting.
William Hill have already established their brand here in Australia and are fast becoming one of the more popular online betting sites for Australian punters.
Initially William Hill bought long standing and well respected Sportingbet to get their foot in the door and then over a period of twelve months William Hill migrated Sportingbet and its customers to their own name.
Along with the acquisition of Sportingbet William Hill also gained two other long standing Australian betting sites in Centrebet and Tom Waterhouse.
One (Centrebet) is still operating but will probably soon cease trading under it's current name and customers will also migrate to William Hill as was the case with Tom Waterhouse.
William Hill offer fresh new features and ideas to punters here in Australia and some of their recent promotions have set the bar high for other online betting sites to follow.
Their experience in the industry abroad is serving them well and always try to keep one step ahead of their competition.
William Hill Review - Betting Man Opinion
William Hill are one of my top three sports betting sites currently, both their online website and mobile betting app are to my liking in their design and they have no issues regarding speed or navigation.
William Hill cover racing and sporting markets from all over the globe and they currently stream sports from all around the world.
Yhey are still yet to stream Victorian horse racing like some other betting sites but this will follow I'm sure.
William Hill offer up some novel features and promotions that are new to the sports betting scene here in Australia some of which offer outstanding value to their customers.
William Hill offer many money back deals and bonus bets surrounding the most popular Australian markets including ALF, NRL and racing.
A few to note are the AFL and NRL Winners Bonus and their new offering Chase The Points.
William Hill have also over the last 18 months offered up some of the biggest competitions ever seen in Australia with huge cash prizes up for grabs.
It will be interesting to see if they come up with any new ideas in this area as they have been quiet for a while now.
William Hills blog named The Wolf is a great way to find out current information regarding upcoming events and it is filled with tips and previews on numerous sports.
One of the main features of the bog is it's podcast area. Here William Hill set the bar with racing, AFL and NRL all covered with weekly casts.
William Hill are also excellent regarding any issues account holders may have and have a Live Chat feature to go with a comprehensive help section which covers most queries that punters may have either about the William Hill site or betting in general.
William Hill offer different Sign Up Bonuses for eligible clients which cater for small time punters to big high rollers covering both ends of the sphere.
The only negative I have come across is on their betting slip.
I was placing a bet and typed in the wrong amount and it was over what I had in my balance and the deposit money option came up telling me there was insufficient funds to place the bet.
I could not remove this from the betting slip in time to alter the stake before the event went off and subsequently I missed the event.
Luckily for me the selection lost but I would have thought differently if it had won.

William Hill are one the top three Australian betting sites currently and I would not hesitate to recommend them to new or existing sports betting enthusiasts.
They have tried to cater for both ends of the spectrum when it comes to bonuses and specials and this always gets the green light with me.
