William Hill Poker Introduction:

When you play poker then you want to be banking with one of the biggest names.  Playing in a fair environment is always a wise choice whether you a novice player or a professional.  William Hill is one of the biggest names in the UK and are part of the iPoker network. 

The iPoker network is now one of the biggest networks in the world, and boasts thousands of cash players every hour of the day.  This means that you can get access to real tournaments, real players and the opportunity to win some serious money any time of day.  Being part of the iPoker network means that you will be playing against lots of other UK players as the network also includes other bookmakers such as Betfair, Ladbrokes and other big names. 

The make-up of the players consists of some serious players, casual players, and many so called fish that have drifted from the casino or the sports betting section or the William Hill Portal.  It is no secret that experience counts in winning poker, and if you happen to play against inexperienced players you will be more likely to win.  There are easier games on the iPoker network when compared to other rooms but the quality can be mixed – there are always some sharks in the waters!

Banking:

William Hill is one of the more reliable websites to put your money into.  However there are some people who have claimed that it difficult to withdraw large amounts of money.  Even so, if you limit your withdrawals and you ensure that your identity documents are up to date then you should have no problems. 

Software:

The poker software that is used is one of the more modern setups you will find.  It is not as functional as some of the professional poker set ups and is more for the casual player.  There is no tracking of other players, and the statistics are limited.  However, if you just want the basics then it is perfectly adequate – after all, if you are a professional poker player you will probably want to customise your own set up.  One of the best features of the software is the ability to multi-table without any lag.  You also have the opportunity to view the different tables in different layouts and formats.

Poker Tournaments:

There is a big Sunday and a big midweek tournament which guarantees a sizable amount of money.  There are also good sized nightly tournaments so you will always have an opportunity to play for big money.  Tournaments start every 5 to 15 minutes, and there are even regular tournaments for Omaha players.

Bonuses and Promotions:

There is a welcome bonus of £100 on your £50 deposit, and a VIP club that is highly rated.  There are also more bonuses for high rollers who want to deposit more money.  In the VIP club you can points for prizes and cash.

Customer Support and Service:

The customer support at William Hill is notoriously slow, and in many cases it requires 10 minutes to answer your questions via the live chat.  If you want to speak to someone, you can call their number for free.  The support service is knowledgeable and available in several different international languages.
