William Hill Mobile App Review

One of the pioneers of online betting now has one of UK’s best betting apps, which offers – on top of innumerable markets and live coverage – unique virtual betting markets. With it you can enjoy your favourite sports at any time. Regular promotions and bonuses make things that much sweeter.

Supported Devices

First off, it is important to know that Will Hill can successfully be used on many different devices. The app is easy to use on all four of the leading devices—android, apple iOS, blackberry and windows phone.

If you happen to be one the very few that doesn’t use one of these operating systems, you can use any mobile browser of your choice.

Apple iOS

You can download the betting app using any of your apple mobile products – iPhone, iPad and even apple Watch! Just go to your iTunes and download the app for your Apple device with an iOS version of 7.0 or later. Then look for the will hill mobile app in the app store. It should not be hard to find. If you can’t find the application in the app store, there’s a chance that   your country is restricted  from using the app. Usually, this is detected when your apple ID is registered. You will find the list of restricted countries below.


As for the William Hill Android edition,  it does not allow you to download real-money gambling apps directly through the Google Play Store. Also, searching for “williamhill co uk mobile” in your google search bar will not present you with an easy clickable link either. Try to steer clear from downloading apps this way, as some of them are fake and will take your money. Instead, you can visit the William Hill Mobile website and directly download the Android application package or APK. Just go to williamhill.co.uk and search for it as if you’re on mobile. They will show this option to you. The william hill android app is a 1.8 MB file and the instructions for installation are already provided in the website. If you have a good connection, downloading this APK won’t take you longer than a minute. Your device must have an operating system of Android 4.1.2 (Jellybean) or later. Take note that installations via APK download may sometimes require allowing unknown sources to be installed on your device. This is not just for the william hill betting app android but for all other non-google play installations as well. Just go to your settings and allow unknown sources to install. Make sure that you download it to the correct site and you’re good to go! Be sure to turn your phone’s protection on again as soon as you’re finished installing.

Windows Phone

The William Hill app is also available for the windows phone operating system using Windows Phone 8 or later. Just go to the Microsoft store and download the app.


For the blackberry platform, you can only bet through the browser but you can create your ‘own app’ by adding a shortcut button to your home screen. First, go to the William Hill mobile betting website and click on the Menu button to select the ‘Add Shortcut to Home’ option. You now have your William Hill betting app on your home screen.

Also take note that most blackberry devices can now download android applications! Therefore, if you still want the full application experience, just go to the website we mentioned for the android APK installation and you’re set.

Notable Features

William Hill Scratch Card

WH also offers virtual scratch cards and their current promotion is a 200% welcome bonus of up to £200.

William Hill Virtual

Another innovation WH is trying out is a virtual betting world product. As I have said before, this uses simulations of several sporting racing events. This includes horse racing, greyhounds, cycling, motor racing and speedway. The lowest bet is at £0.03 so it’s very affordable to try. Odds work as if it is in the real world. If you bet on those with large winnings, it’s less likely to happen. If you bet on those with lower winnings, it’s more probable.

Other Features

Live Sports Betting

The status of a game changes dramatically through its course and consequently the odds change as the game plays out. With live sports betting, you can take advantage of these shifts in the game and bet on more favorable markets. What I loved about WH’s inplay market offering is it has a lot of markets to choose from. For example, in football, they have 59 markets. That’s a lot! Some bookmakers only offer around 10, the usual AH, 1x2s and OUs. WH offers a  market that asks if a goal will be scored in the next 5 minutes, or if there will be a 3rd goal. If you have an aptitude for watching several markets, you can easily spot some value bets. It’s a great way to tap into profitable winnings.

They also offer the current statistics of the match. You’ll be able to see the shots made (off target and on target), throw-ins, corners and free kicks. This can be useful for some to at least have a record of what is happening in the match.

Lastly and most importantly, WH offers a live streaming option. The excitement and thrill isn’t the same without seeing the live action! With this feature, you can watch a game anytime you’d like, from anywhere you like. You’ll just need to have a positive balance in order to stream for free.

In-Play Radio

Another great feature of the williamhill mobile app is the in-play radio. This is useful when your internet connection is too slow to handle live streaming. You can also follow the game you’re betting on while driving in your car!

They have quite a good portfolio of radio hosts and people who give commentary to the games. Aside from this, they also give betting tips so be sure to listen to their free live streaming.

Text Betting

You can even place a bet on a certain event without even having to open the mobile app. With text betting, you can place a bet by sending a text message using your phone. Take note that this feature needs to be activated first before you can use it. Just text “register + username or account number” to 60609. This cool feature is available only in the UK though.

One Wallet

Transactions are much more convenient with the One Wallet feature. You can do both deposits and withdraws using the mobile cashier on the app. You don’t have to create multiple accounts for different products. For example, if you played Bingo on a Tuesday and won £20, the £20 can be played on Roulette on Wednesday. This is very convenient for players who’d like to try out several WH products.


On Mobile with No App

Just  open your favorite browser (Opera, Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox, etc.) and key in https://mobile.williamhill.com/. If you type in the regular williamhill com website (www.williamhill.co.uk) on your mobile, you’ll still be redirected to  the mobile site.  Key in your William Hill login once you’ve opened the site in your browser and you’re ready to play. You’ll still have the WH betting experience even without having to download the mobile app. The willhill mobile site also determines automatically the size of your phone or tablet in order to provide you with the best betting experience possible.


WH Sports Bonus/Promotion

Being one of the oldest bookmakers in UK gives WH the ability to regularly provide bonuses. A quick look on their site will provide several bonuses available to its bettors. There aren’t  specific deals for mobile-only customers, as most of the promotions are available to all customers.


Free Bets for New Customers

New members can get £20 in free bets upon signing up. Just enter the promo code F20 upon creating your account and you’ll get the william hill free bet. To avail the free bets, you need to make a deposit first and then place a bet of £10 or more on any market with odds of at least 1.20. Take note that because of abuse, the use of Skrill, Skrill 1-Tap, Neteller or Paysafe for the initial deposit won’t be valid. You’ll have to use deposit methods that give your information and may not be easily duplicated such as bank transfer and credit cards. Also, this is only available to UK customers who are using GBP as their currency and you can’t  transfer your free bets to other gambling products other than sports betting.


Weekly £5 free bet

One of  the best WH promotions is the weekly free bet. Just a total of £20 worth of stake is needed in order to qualify. You’ll need to bet on football accumulators (4 or more) for this bet. Because this is an accumulator bet, the pay-outs are huge! Even though the probability of getting all four correct is not extremely high, the appeal remains ample because it’s totally free!   Just don’t forget to sign-up for the WH Offer Club for mobile or via desktop.  Valid entries for this promotion include: 90 minutes, both teams to score, match result and both teams to score, total match goals: over/under 2.5 goals, correct score, both score no draw and many others. As for  where the free bet can be used, almost all major leagues are included in England, Scotland, Spain, Italy, Germany, French, Dutch, Turkmenistan and UEFA. This is valid for UK and Eire residents only using Euro or GBP currencies.

NFL Money Back Treble

Stake £10 on Money Back Trebles on selected william hill football matches to get a chance to grow your money tenfold! If you get all three correct, £100 is yours. Do not worry if you only get two or one, you can still have a £20 and £10 free bets, respectively. This will hill football deal is r one of a kind. However, please note that this is exclusive only to a particular match and for a particular set of odds. For example, we will have two NFL matches, Falcons vs Packers and Patriots vs Steelers. WH will tell you that the promotion for today is that the markets you should be betting at is 14+ Touchdowns, 9+ Sacks and 6+ Turnovers for these two match ups. These numbers change daily but unfortunately, you can’t change these numbers. If all three conditions said came true, you’ll get times 10 of your stake. The only time you’ll lose is if all three are lost. So, if you think one of the scenarios given by WH can come true, this will be a very good choice for you as you’ll just get your money back even if only one is true. Even better, if you get all three, you’ll get £100!


Enhanced Odds

Everyday, WH releases a bunch of markets at an enhanced price to entice players to place bets on certain events. Make sure to be quick though, as this offer  only lasts for a short period of time. These can be seen with a logo marked as “Enhanced Odds” when you hover your mouse over them . These are available in several sport markets including favorites such as football and horse racing.


Goal Scorer Sub

Another promo from WH is their goal scorer sub in which you place a bet on your favorite player to score a goal. In case anytime during the game your player has been substituted out of the game, your bet is carried on to the new player who replaced your original pick! So when the substitute scores, you win! This is valid for almost all player specific WH markets such as first scorer, last scorer, first team scorer and many others. This is a good insurance that your bet will still push through.


Acca Insurance

Every time you bet on an accumulator bet of 5 or more, if only one loses WH will refund the amount you lost . Some may see some value bets here since the lowest price is at 1.20 only. However, here is the good news, for the largest league competitions there are NO LOWER LIMITS ON THE PRICE. You can bet as low as 1.01 odds! Lower odds mean higher chances of winning. Major leagues such as the English Leagues (Premier League, Championship, League One, League Two, FA and League Cup), UEFA (Champions and Europe), Spanish (La Liga, Copa del Rey and Segunda) and many more are included in this no limit deal. This has a maximum of £50 free bets per selection.

The only negative thing about this acca insurance is that the markets where this is valid are limited. For example,  football only has three markets are included: (1) 90 Minutes/Match Betting, (2) Both Teams to score and (3) Match Result and Both Team to score. For all other  sports, only outright and match winner are included. This can be frustrating for some who’d like to try it on many of WH’s selections.
