WilliamHill Mobile App Review for iPhone, Android and Blackberry 2014
William Hill is one of the world’s oldest Bookmakers and was founded in 1934 by none other than William Hill, when gambling was actually illegal in England. As one of the most respected and recognized brands in the betting business, William Hill knows a thing or two about what gamblers want, and their new betting app does not fail to impress with a host of features and markets that should cover all your betting needs right from the palm of your hand.
On top of their betting expertise, William Hill are also offering players the Best Odds Guaranteed on all UK and Irish Horse and Greyhound Racing, so you’ll never have to worry about comparing the odds of a race with another site again.
William Hill Mobile Offers & Promotions
At the moment William Hill aren’t offering any risk free bets for their Mobile betting app unfortunately, however there are a number of daily promotions which you can take advantage of when you sign up, including a 100% up to £25 bonus. These vary from refunding your money if the match is a nil-nil score or giving you a free bet and refunding your stake if your first goal scorer doesn’t score the first goal but scores the second.
Features & Interface
The first thing to note about the William Hill app is that this is an all in one gambling app that covers all the bases you could possibly need for when it comes to gambling. You’ll notice that on the Home Screen you are given a choice of entering their sports book, casino, Shake-a-bet and the Racing Post. William Hill have gone against the grain and rather than simply limit themselves as a betting app, they are trying to offer punters as much to choose from as possible.
The sports book section is well polished and exactly what you’d expect from a gambling giant such as William Hill. Their In-Play betting section is especially good, and you can access all the games and leagues that are happening there and then for you to bet on. One of the best features of their In-Play betting is that alongside the current score, they also include the match time, so you can know exactly how much time there is left.
If you’re into your horse racing, then the William Hill app is really head and shoulders above the competition, making the most of its connection to the Racing Post, for when you are browsing through upcoming races, you can read up about which horses are the favourites, as there are quotes from the Racing post giving advice on who to bet on. This is a fantastic feature, which eliminates the need to do any investigation yourself if you’re unsure.
The Shake-a-bet feature is an innovative way of adding a bit of fun to how you make a bet and is very straightforward to use. It works for Football and Horse racing markets and allows you to type in how much you want to bet, how many bets you want to make and how much you expect to receive, then you simply shake your device and it brings up a selection of the markets where you can win the amount you’ve specified with your wager. From correct score to first goal scorer and many more options, this is a novel way of spicing up your bets.
Overview, Design & Feel
William Hill have spared no expense when it comes down to the presentation and aesthetic of their app and you’ll be blown away by the quality graphics and attention to detail that they’ve employed. The choice to use graphics as opposed to text is undoubtedly more preferable and I’m sure you’ll agree that it makes for a much more inviting and stylish experience. By combining their standard colours with graphics, the William Hill app brings a great deal of luxury to the overall feel.
One of the most incredible things about the William Hill betting app, is that there are more markets on the app than on their website! The app includes 49 markets which is 19 more than on their website. Clearly every single sport you could imagine is catered for, from golf, cricket, football, rugby and everything in between; you will be spoiled for choice by the selection on offer. The only downside is that there is a serious lack of European and International markets for you to bet on, with them squarely focusing on UK markets, so that’s definitely something that we hope to see addressed in updated versions of the app.
Cashier & Support
The Cashier is easily accessed via its icon where you can check your balance, make deposits and withdrawals and see how much you’ve won. In order to change your credit card you have to call William Hill up.
Support is limited to a 24/7 phone number where you can get help, however there are no FAQ’s or email addresses to make use of.
How to Place a Bet
When you’ve chosen what game you want to bet on, simply select the odds and the bet will be transferred to your betting slip, which you can access from the bottom right hand corner of the screen. When you open up your bet slip, you can specify how much you want to bet and it will calculate how much you stand to gain.
How to Install

The William Hill Betting app sets the benchmark for all other apps to follow in terms of style, navigation and markets on offer. This is one of the few betting apps that no gambler can afford to be without. The array of markets is simply astonishing and the Best Odds Guaranteed on all UK and Irish Horse and Greyhound Racing means that you really don’t have to go anywhere else to check the odds on the races. The integration of new features such as Shake-a-bet is a great way to spice things up a little and is a really handy piece of kit that you can show off to your mates. All in all, the William Hill betting app can’t be faulted and ranks as one of the best betting apps we’ve ever reviewed.
