William Hill Poker Room Review
William Hill Poker is part of the vast iPoker network. This network forms one of the top 3 online poker rooms, worldwide in average player population. $16 million a month fuels their very popular guaranteed prize money tournaments. Loose cash games, stellar VIP benefits, and access to very popular side games and sports betting make this a well rounded site with many compelling reasons to keep some bankroll here.
100% up to £400 on your first deposit. Comparable to most online poker sites. A bit lower than some other iPoker network sites though. (Example: Titan Poker Coupon Code).
The bonus clears best at $2/$4 limit or $1/$2 no limit, though .50/$1 NL (also referred to as NL100) will clear the bonus easy enough as well. The bonus clears at $10 per 700 points, so you are looking for tables that have $20 pot averages or better for optimal bonus clearing.
Active loose tables. There are a lot of casino and sports bettors that are attracted to William Hill, and that translates into more gamblers at the poker tables. The micro and low limits especially will feature a lot of action.
After doing some solid reworking of their software in 2009, we can say that William Hill Poker is 'cutting edge' on the technical side of things. The lobby is clean and the functionality is crisp. It's not hard to find exactly what you are looking for, with or without using the filters.
William Hill Poker is powered by Playtech software, so if you have played any other iPoker rooms, you will be familiar with the look and feel.
Sites like William Hill are becoming more and more popular, with so many games and betting action to be involved in. Their two clearest advantages, in my opinion, or their long standing reputation, and the fact that players can have keep their whole bankroll within the William Hill system and take part in just about any casino, sports or poker action they want. This certainly beats having some bankroll on one sports site and other money on a poker site, and yet another site for blackjack and casino action, etc.
