The William Hill poker department might not be as advanced as, for example, the Poker options on Bet365, but does not lag in any regard behind its own Sports Betting or casino sections. Quantity and quality are both taken into consideration when managing existing games or adding new ones and the web pages are configured in a friendly format.

You have to download the William Hill poker software in order to start playing, but you only have to sign up for an original BET365 account to do so.

A MULTITUDE OF OPTIONS

In the user-friendly lobby, there is a lot of ways a player can choose to go:

Texas Hold’em, the world’s favorite poker game, and its Omaha High (& Low) Poker variation. William Hill offers the limit, pot-limit and no-limit variations, where blinds can be from 1 US cent to 600 US dollars.

Sit & Go Tournaments. They put Online Poker games in the express lane, thus making it possible for you to join ten-seat or six-seat tables rapidly and at any time. With a minimum buy-in set as low as 1 GBP and the maximum one amounting to 500 GBP, there’s plenty of choices for any kind of players and the second and third bests get a share of the prize pool, too.

Multi-Table Tournaments. A multitude of single-tournament-type tables are joined together in a single room and their number is constantly reduced by re-seating the survivors of incomplete ones. The process continues until there is one table left and its winner takes all the money.

Cash Games. Due to their format and conditions, regular poker players cherish them the most. The blinds never increase and the buy-in range goes from 20 to 100 big blinds. This way, if you were to join a 1 GBP/2 GBP table, you could buy in with any sum between 20 GBP and 400 GBP. Another relaxed feature is the absence of a set number of players that have to be at a table for the game to take place: as long as more than one are present, the action will begin and continue until the last of them leaves.

Speed Poker. The designation is not about the velocity of game play, but the rapidity with which you can join a new table once you fold at a given one. That also implies that you don’t have to wait for the opponents to act, just speed off to another table that might better suit your expectations or playing style. Matchbook has developed its own software for the poker games, and we highly recommend you to better get a Matchbook account through an agent and try it out first.

AN EXCITING START FOR NEW PLAYERS

When it comes to promotions, William Hill offers them for poker in an even larger assortment than it does for casino. New players have several enticing prospects in this area:

A first deposit bonus of 200% up to 1,200GBP. There is a 90-day period during which the full amount (yes, double the first deposit) can be redeemed – all a player has to do is keep accumulating points by being active at tables.

New player weekly cash races. While not containing as big cash sums as the first deposit bonus, these events reward everybody in the top 10, and also give consolation prizes to everyone down to the 200th place.

Poker boot camp. While the name certainly has an appeal for new players, the camp enlists experienced ones, too. There are four levels, each composed of three military ranks. Work your way through the levels so you can go from private all the way to general! You can also choose to get your account with the best betting agent in the world and be assisted at any time of the day by their around the clock customer support!
