William Hill ReviewTweet
Review last updated – January 2013
With over 15000 employees and a household brand name for betting shops in the UK, William Hill is a massively experience gambling company who won Bookmaker of the year at the prestigious BetView awards in 2010. They certainly won’t steer you wrong if you’re looking for lots of bonus cash and great games.
All six of the reviewers working for this site have held accounts with William Hill Casino for several years and experienced no issues. Oddly one of our reviewers has had their account closed with little explanation other than a “breach of terms and conditions” email. While they were never able to find out why their account was closed the full account balance including comp points was returned to them promptly.
A couple of other points to note when considering William Hill’s reputation would be there purchase of the Crown Solution Playtech group in 2009 and the recent court case won against William Hill by 32 Red for copyright infringement. Crown Solutions had a poor reputation amongst the gambling community. William Hill has stated that they have put procedures in place to improve the rebranded William Hill Casino Club and there have been far fewer customer problems than the previous Crown Solutions operation, however we have found at least one instance of William Hill Casino Club refusing to engage with 3rd party mediation - http://www.gamblinggrumbles.com/Reports/William-Hill_No-payment-and-we-cant-ask-why. The 32 Red lawsuit occurred due to William Hill’s use of the 32Vegas website. The court ruled that this was clear violation of 32 Red’s trademark.
Alongside the above report William Hill have been unresponsive to a second complaint posted at Ask Gamblers - http://www.askgamblers.com/casino-complaints/william-hill-casino-confiscated-my-winnings-c1543. William Hill fortunately doesn't receive many complaints, however their unwillingness to discuss complaints when they do arise is concerning.

Comp Point Program 8/10
William Hill offer the standard Playtech comp point program, that being 1 comp point earned for every £10 wagered and 100 comp points = £1. They will also improve the redemption rate for accounts showing a lot of activity. This makes the William Hill comp point program substantially better than the industry average.
