William Hill Review
William Hill Website
One of the main draw cards for using William Hill is their excellent online portal which is only rivaled by Ladbrokes. Since the re-branding from Sportingbet to William Hill there has been a few changes but in the main the software has stayed the same with a few minor adjustments over the last few months.
William Hill have opted for a slightly more modern approach and their top menu bar is split into six sections which covers the three racing codes along with the two big sports in Australia NRL and AFL. The last tab usually alternates between one of the big sporting events of the current week. They have situated a separate tab on the end of the menu which when clicked takes you to all the rest of the popular sporting markets.
William Hill also have two quick link menu's, one on the left and one on the right. The left hand side menu covers a few specials that they have like the Jockey Challenge and current promotions. Link to the Live Events, Results and Multi Specials are also included. The right hand side module includes your bet slip and any pending bets you may have open. One of the best features about William Hill is also located here which is the William Hill Blog. The blog gives some good tips and current form guides across racing and sporting events and is well worth a look if you haven't visited before.
With modules all over the front page it shouldn't take you long to find what you are looking for. The main features include the Next To Jump modules for racing and sporting events. The racing module allows you to look at all upcoming races for all three codes within the next hour while the sports module highlights any sporting events due to start within the next hour or so.
The William Hill form guide is one of the best in the business. When you click on a runners name a drop down appears with three graphs which include win and place percentages and the runners last six starts. If you hover over the last six starts graph it will also tell you how many runners there were in the specific race and the position finished. More information regarding runs after a spell, track, distance and ground analysis are also shown. If you are in the greyhound or harness racing markets you are also shown career earnings and the runners best time. For the serious punter there is a full form section for each race located near the refresh button which has more in depth information.
William Hill Mobile App
The William Hill mobile app is one of my favourites to use when betting on the go. I would rate it a close second to the Crownbet mobile app but there is not much to squabble over on both apps. William Hill Also have a feature called Click To Call making it easier for punters to place a bet on events already in play which is a great little feature.
William Hill's customer service is one of the best around although the question mark button situated near the login section is some what hard to find I prefer a help notification. They have a great Live Chat facility and I have no worries in using this to solve any issues I have regarding bets or late payments etc. They have covered all the usual questions and separated them into seven different reference sections for punters to quickly fins what they are looking for. William Hill are again one of the best for answering email queries quickly and efficiently. One thing I would add is that they do not stipulate when the phone lines are open if you want to chat to a customer service operator but in this day and age the Live Chat feature is a better option.
William Hill have many promotions running throughout the year with plenty of weekly and monthly specials on sports and racing markets

William Hill Review - Summary
William Hill Australia are definitely one of the best of the current online betting sites in my eyes, William Hill have set up a state of the art online sportsbook and one of the best mobile betting apps which is no surprise with their vast experience in the online sports betting world abroad. William Hill like Ladbrokes have set the bar when it comes to feature bets and weekly bonuses which has turned the Australian sports betting industry on it's head.
Certainly one Australian sports betting site to sign up too and one of your first port of calls when having a bet.
