Summary of William Hill Poker
UK-based William Hill Poker joined the iPoker network in the beginning of 2009. On iPoker – the third biggest poker venue in the world – dim-witted opponents and good games are available 24/7, a definite plus when you’re looking for your next online poker room.
Will Hill is one of the classic sports betting operators in the UK – its offline business has been running like a well-oiled roulette wheel since 1943. Age is a sign of trust in this business, so in other words your funds are as safe with Will Hill as with any bank.
As is often the case, the association with other forms of gambling and sports betting opens the gates to a flood of merry luck-seekers (i.e., useless poker players) who are just sitting around waiting to throw money at you.
The fact that the poker room supports multiple currencies is a great thing for the poker room. At the USD tables, the rake rate is in line with the industry standard, but it’s important to note that the GBP and Euro tables use the same structure, meaning you’ll pay more rake. Sticking with the dollar tables is therefore highly recommended, and don’t worry – there are plenty of those, too.
The graphics are tidy and effective. There are some (thankfully optional) avatars to choose from. Now that the largest sites have gone independent iPoker is the world’s largest poker network. Peak traffic tends to coincide with European evening time.
Promotions & Bonus Information
William Hill Poker has a fantastic first-time deposit bonus of 200% up to $1,500.
In addition to the deposit bonus players will have access to a variety of new player freerolls. The majority will feature prize pools of $1,000 and under but have super-soft competition.
William Hill Poker is part of the iPoker Network, currently the third largest online poker network on the world.
According to PokerScout.com the iPoker network averages 1,900 cash players per day with a peak of over 3,700.
You will find a solid mix of competition in both tournaments and cash games. Competition is softest during peak hours as players who frequent several iPoker sports betting platforms will then hop on and pass a little time playing poker.
