William Hill Poker

William Hill Poker is the poker arm of William Hill, one of the largest bookmakers in the UK. The company was founded in 1934 by William Hill at a time when gambling was illegal in the UK. Since then, its ownership has changed hands many times and it was listed on the London Stock Exchange in 2002.

William Hill is a worldwide operation and employs around 16,600 people in their offices situated in the UK, Republic of Ireland and Gibraltar and also in their 2,300 betting shops based in the UK. The company represents around 25 percent of the UK betting market and to give you an idea of the scale of their operation their betting ships process more than one million betting slips each day and took over 125,000 bets over the telephone for the 2007 Grand National.

In addition to its online poker room, you can also play at William Hill Casino, William Hill Bingo and bet on sports at William Hill.

Variety of Games

William Hill uses Playtech software and is part of the huge iPoker network. It features good graphics, functionality and security. You can expect the following games at the website:

  • Hold’em
  • Omaha Hi and Hi-Lo
  • Seven Card Stud
  • Heads Up
  • Ring games and multi-table tournaments

You may find the poker looser than usual because lots of players will join from William Hill and also William Hill Casino. Viewed flop percentages can be in the 30s or 40s with some all the way into the 50s. This means lots of players are viewing the flop with nothing and a skilled player could clean up.
