About William Hill the Company
William Hill proudly calls itself ‘The Home of Betting’ and that is not an unsubstantiated claim. William Hill is at the very top of the UK and global bookmaking industry for quite a while. The company was founded in 1934 and has changed ownership on many occasions throughout the years, but one thing remained constant –impeccable betting offer, along with good service.
In 2002 William Hill was, for the first time publicly traded on the LSE. The company has formed multiple branches to ensure better organisation and William Hill Online is the branch that’s in charge of the online bookmaker website. William Hill is based in London but it also has premises in Leeds and throughout the world.
The company’s revenue in 2015 was over £1.5 billion. At the moment, over 16,000 people work for William Hill. In addition to online betting, William Hill also operates an online casino, poker, bingo and other gaming pages. The operator is licenced by the UK Gambling Commission and the authorities of Gibraltar.

On the main page you will notice a menu where all sports that are available for betting are listed.
The most popular sports, including football and horse racing are listed in the top row, and if you click on ‘More Sports’, you will see all betting categories that are available, in total more than 30. Vast majority of sports that are played competitively and regularly are featured.
Betting on politics and television events is also offered. You can bet on which country will win the Eurovision or which party will win the next General Election in the UK.
Betting selections are added to the bet slip by clicking on the odds. You can build your bet first and then sign in or sing up if you haven’t already. It is possible to combine multiple selections, even different sports on the same bet slip. When you add multiple selections to your bet slip, you can combine them and choose what type of bets you would like to place. You can bet on each of the selections as a single, but also place an accumulator bet or different multiple bets.
If you select a particular event, let’s say a match of the English Premier League, you will see all the betting markets that are available for that match.
There are usually about 250, sometimes even more, especially if the match is of great importance. You can bet on the winner, including handicap betting, to lead at first half; the number of goals, of each team and in total, but you can also bet on cards and corners. You can even bet if a particular player is going to score in the first 10 minutes.
