William Hill entered the sports betting market back in 1934. It has gone on to become one of the best sports betting sites since its entry into the online gambling sphere in 1998. That said, its online casino was launched two years later (2000).
Although age doesn’t define a bookie, it must have been doing something right to come this far. Fortunately, William Hill doesn’t just bring its long stay to the fore. It’s also a reputable and trustworthy sportsbook with a track record to show for it.
William Hill has secured a license from the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA), which regulates its operations outside the UK. Hence, Indian bettors are guaranteed a safe and fair betting experience.
In this article, we’ll be taking a look at what William Hill offers Indian bettors, from registration to bonuses and betting features.
Registration Process at William Hill
Creating a William Hill account is the first step to placing real money bets at the site. This bookmaker doesn’t provide an Indian-specific site, but accepts registration from bettors in the country. Simply:
- Head to the William Hill official site using an Internet-enabled web browser.
- Once you land on the homepage, click on the legible “Join” icon.
- On the registration menu, input your personal details, name, date of birth, etc. Then, click the “Continue” icon just below to proceed to the next page.
- Input your username, password and choose a security question. You’ll also be prompted to set a deposit limit (Daily, Weekly, and Monthly).
- Enter a “Promo Code.” William Hill usually has this section automatically filled with the relevant code.
- Hit the “Agree and Join” icon to confirm all previously indicated information.
At William Hill, security is paramount, and as a result, you’ll need to submit documents to verify your identity. Here, proof of address and any valid ID should suffice.
Deposits and Withdrawals at William Hill
Payments at William Hill are safe and secure. The methods available are internationally recognized. However, William Hill doesn’t have many of India’s top gambling payment solutions like UPI or Paytm. Instead, bettors can deposit and withdraw with credit/debit cards, or e-wallets like Skrill and Entropay.
To make a deposit, you’ll need to be fully registered. Once you’ve fulfilled all the requirements, tap on the “Deposit” icon in the top right corner. When selecting your preferred option to deposit, keep in mind that you’ll usually be required to withdraw with the same method. So, you’d do well to opt for a method that you’re comfortable receiving a payout with.
William Hill doesn’t support INR, so there may be some conversion rates. Generally, the minimum deposit at the site is £5.
William Hill Welcome Bonus
Like much of the other website features, the Welcome Bonus at this sportsbook is not Indian-specific. Nonetheless, William Hill offers a sign-up bonus where newbies get £30 of free bets after betting £10. Here’s how you can enter this offer:
- Create a William Hill account. Use the “H30” code in the “bonus code” registration segment.
- Upon registration, place bets on odds of ½ or higher. Make sure that these bets sum up to £10.
- Once the qualifying bet is settled, you can access your free bets in the “Rewards Section.” Free bets are divided into two (£15) denominations.
Although this incentive can boost winning chances for sports bettors, the drawback is that several payment methods are ineligible.
Sports Betting at William Hill
William Hill has been in the sports betting scene for over 80 years. With their experience in the versatile industry, it’s only fitting that they host the best sporting events the iGaming community has to offer.
The site features over 30 different sports, including India’s most popular category – Cricket. Others include:
- Horse Racing
- Ice Hockey
For each category, there are numerous alternatives to place wagers on. When you compare the numbers at William Hill to the competition, it stands out.
Live Betting at William Hill
To access live betting options at William Hill, click the “In Play” icon. Here, you get a hold of numerous sporting categories with events in session. At William Hill, each distinct category features the number of events going on. With this add-on, players can make selections based on their interests.
If you’d like to see live streaming events only, there’s a toggle box you can check. Once checked, you can see streamable events.
Although we couldn’t see many events during our stay here, it was pretty smooth regardless. You can also enjoy horse racing podcasts at William Hill.
