William Hill Poker Review
The British bookmaker William Hill has over 70 years experience in the gambling industry. It was founded in 1934 and was indeed one of the very first to take that experience online. With an impeccable reputation William Hill has become a household name in the UK and Europe and with shops on most high streets and is even an official sponsor of the England football team. You will not find a more financially solid operation than William Hill, it's fully licensed and regulated in Gibraltar and well managed from the top with a constantly evolving product range. We're here of course to talk about the poker product, the game availability, promotions, support and everything in between. William Hill Poker sits on the top tier of the iPoker Network meaning that the room itself brings in plenty of traffic and contributes well to the network in general. In return, the network provides William Hill poker players a huge variety of cash games and tournaments with cash on the tables at any given time of day.
William Hill Poker Welcome Bonus and Promotions
Once you have been through the simple and swift sign up and download process it's time to play some real money poker and there's no better way to do that than with a little, or in this case, a lot more free cash. The welcome bonus at William Hill is a very generous 200% up to a maximum of $2,000 and you'll have 90 days in which to clear the bonus. The bonus is released in $10 increments into your account and you'll need to earn 700 WH Points for each $10. WH Points are the loyalty points that are used in the William Hill VIP Scheme and they are earned at a rate of 25 points for every $1 rake or tournament fees paid. This brings us nicely on to the loyalty program itself. This multi tiered program offers plenty of rewards which clearly increase with each level you reach. The rewards include generous freerolls up to $10,000, cash back, and access the the William Hill Loyalty shop where you may use your points to purchase merchandise and other goods. The very top levels include some nice touches which see William Hill sponsor you for live tournaments. There is also a bad beat jackpot which sees you winning when you get beat holding 4 jacks or higher, which won't happen very often but the $150 bonus may take the sting out of it a little. William Hill offers plenty of monthly promotions, constantly changing and always innovative and they include satellites to land based tournaments, huge online tournament series such as the iPoker Networks iPOP's, plenty of cash giveaways and so much more. As soon as you become a member you'll be notified of all that's going on via email, and you are sure to the the offers in the poker lobby.
William Hill Tournaments and Cash Games
As we've mentioned, William Hill sits on the iPoker Network meaning liquidity is simply never a problem.

There is of course a lot more than Texas Hold'em available and you'll find Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo, 7 Card Stud, 5 Card Stud and more. When it comes to tournaments you will not find a much bigger and better selection with over $16 million worth of guaranteed tournaments being played every month, with the biggest being the $200,000 Guaranteed event each week. Sit and Go's fill up very fast due to the number of players around and you'll find that with the super smooth software the lobby is easy to navigate and find exactly what you are looking for.
