William Hill is one of the largest bookmakers in the United Kingdom and is headquartered outside of London. They’re listed on the London Stock Exchange and are a component of the FTSE 250 index—roughly analogous to the US based Dow Jones Industrial Average or NASDAQ Composite. The company’s roots date back to the 1930’s and although its ownership has changed hands several times since then it has remained one of the true icons of the British bookmaking industry. By any metric, William Hill is a giant in the industry both in the online betting segment and the traditional ‘retail’ marketplace. William Hill operates approximately 2,300 betting shops in the UK and Ireland in addition to their online business. The online segment alone ranks William Hill among the top three online bookmakers in all of Europe. The company employs over 16,000 people worldwide.
The online component of the company offers a state of the art interface with access to a huge range of betting options. All of the major European-centric sports are offered including football, American football, basketball, rugby, cricket, Formula 1 racing and wagers on entertainment and politics. In addition, William Hill Online features a full racebook with all major tracks worldwide as well as greyhound racing. The website also has several casino variants, a poker room, bingo and skill games like backgammon and dominoes.

Most of William Hill’s bonuses are targeted toward the new player, with different specials for sports players, casino players, horse players, etc. They also feature a daily promotion called ‘Match Winners’ whereby they offer enhanced odds and a wide variety of proposition bets on a major sporting event of the day.
