Enjoy William Hill's Custom Interface For Poker Players


One of the best known European online poker rooms today is William Hill. Whilst you may have heard about William Hill in regards sports betting they’ve have been operating a poker site since 2002. Over the past decade the poker software and network affiliations of William Hill has changed, but today William Hill uses the iPoker network run by Playtech, and which is also used by a number of other large sites catering to a UK and EU audience. As the third largest network iPoker averages 8,000 – 12,000 active players at any one time with 2,000 – 3,000 active tables.

William Hill uses a custom interface to the iPoker network designed for their specific players. In the last couple of years William Hill has made noticeable improvements to its poker software including a slimmed down interface that fits the same amount of information on the screen as before but with less clutter so you can find the tables at the stakes you want, or play with your people in your friends list. One new feature is the ability to play at multi-currency tables – gone are the days where you would be limited to playing at USD, GBP, or EUR tables only. There are also more options for auto-top up when sitting in cash games with filters based on the pot size and table limits.

Even though William Hill has a great poker room it’s still primarily known for its sports betting, having come from a bricks and mortar based bookmakers, and for its casino site. The casino offered by William Hill has all the lighter games enjoyed by poker players such as blackjack, video poker etc. In addition it runs many slots tournaments and offers some major progressive slots such as beach life. Whilst many poker players feel uncomfortable with the lack of skill element in slots, it is worth checking out some of the latest video slots that feature amazing bonus rounds, free spins, wild symbols, and progressive jackpots. This website is a useful resource for poker players looking to learn the slots lingo such as wild, scatter symbols and multipliers.

At William Hill therefore you can get the full casino experience just like at any property on the Vegas strip. You can play a cash game of Texas hold’em, then using your same wallet move over to the sports book, before rounding off your play with few slot machines.
