Other William Hill sign up offers

You might have seen various William Hill promo codes on TV or in your local William Hill store. Here are some of the promotions you can enjoy when you register:

1. Poker Room – up to £1210 in bonuses

Poker first deposit kitbag

New depositors at William Hill Poker can receive a £75 gift bag, for a first deposit of £20.

The gift bag is made up of the following rewards:

  • First Deposit Bonus Money (£65 for a £20 deposit)
  • £10 Casino Bonus
  • “Gifts Palooza” Freeroll entry
  • 100 Club Points Bonus

Note that the bonus money is unlocked in three stages, by playing real money poker to accumulate WHPoints. To earn the maximum amount of bonus money, you must play through the required amount within 45 days.

William Hill Poker bonus explainer

So you could obtain bonus money of up to £1200 in total, but this would require you to make a first deposit of £585, by our calculations. That will be for the high rollers only then!

William Hill have instead decided to focus on the £75 value of the gift bag, to show what you could get for a more common deposit level at £20.

If you’re not sure about any of the details, read through the terms & conditions on the William Hill Poker website.

2. Casino – no promo code required

William Hill casino games

Several offers are available for newcomers at the Casino section of the site, with no need for a William Hill promo code. Let’s take a look at how to get the most out of your gaming experience at William Hill online casino:

First Deposit Bonus

When you first sign up to play at the casino, you will qualify for the First Deposit Bonus, which in most cases will be up to a maximum of £150 (High Rollers can get up to £300). The bonus you receive will depend on the amount of your first deposit so look at the table below to see what you could get:

Bonus OfferMinimum DepositMaximum Bonus
100% up to £150£10£150
£300 High Roller players£1000£300

First Deposit Download Bonus

This is another bonus opportunity for new players, which requires you to download the William Hill casino software onto your computer. It is arguably more appealing than the First Deposit Bonus itself due to the higher percentage of the offer and higher maximum bonus amount. In fact, you can actually use both bonuses by being clever, which we will get to in a minute. To start with, here are the details:

Bonus OfferMinimum DepositMaximum Bonus
150% up to £200£10£200
100% up to £150£10£150
£500 High Roller players£1000£500

Suggestion: To get the best deposit/bonus ratio in this case, you could place a deposit of £134 which qualifies for the maximum bonus amount of £200 (£134 x 150% = £201).

If you want to use both the First Deposit Bonus and the First Deposit Download Bonus, you will need to follow this order:

  • Sign up to William Hill Casino and make your first deposit
  • You will receive the First Deposit Bonus as detailed above
  • Play through the wagering requirements on the First Deposit Bonus
  • Then (and not before!) download the casino software
  • You will receive the First Deposit Download Bonus as detailed above

Both of these bonuses are subject to wagering requirements of 20x the deposit and bonus amount before any withdrawal can be made.

Note: Not all games contribute the same % to the wagering requirement. Refer to the William Hill website for the breakdown by game.

Second Deposit Bonus

The Second Deposit Bonus at William Hill Casino can be obtained after playing through the previously mentioned bonuses. The bonus amount offered is 75% of your deposit, with a minimum deposit of £10 required and a maximum bonus amount of £100.

Again, the smallest deposit required to obtain the maximum bonus amount is £134 (£134 x 75% = £100.50).

The wagering requirements for the Second Deposit Bonus are 15x the deposit and bonus amount.

Refer a Friend

Refer a friend banner

Looking for a ‘friends with benefits’ relationship? William Hill Casino brings a new meaning to the expression with its £50 Refer a Friend Bonus.

For this bonus, you’ll need to have the casino software downloaded onto your computer, click ‘Invite a Friend’ on the top navigation bar and follow the on-screen instructions.

Once your friend has made a deposit of at least £50 and wagered 100% of their deposit, you will receive the £50 bonus.

What’s more, your friend will also receive a £50 referral bonus, so it’s not only you who will benefit. You scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours!

The Refer a Friend Bonus is subject to wagering requirements of 15x bonus amount.

3. Live Casino – £25 bonus no promo code required

For those who prefer the live casino experience with real dealers and games, the £25 New Player Bonus may grab your attention. To unlock the bonus, you must first deposit a minimum of £25 and wager that amount 8 times over. Then you can contact the William Hill customer services team to have your bonus credited.

4. The Vegas Experience – up to £20 cashback

The William Hill Vegas casino site offers first time players an attractive 100% cashback promo. You must wager a minimum of £5 at William Hill Vegas to qualify for the promotion. If after 48 hours you are not a winner, your losses will be refunded up to a £20 maximum.

William Hill Vegas 100% cashback

We see this as a fair way to test out the excitement of the Vegas website without risking your own hard-earned cash if you don’t wish to.

Tip: If you enjoy the Vegas Experience, you may also be interested in trying out the William Hill Macau casino site, which was launched in December 2015.

It features a range of Asian-themed games, so you can let your imagination run wild and take a trip to the Far East.

We don’t currently know about any William Hill promo codes for the Macao site, but check back regularly as we will be updating this article if there are new bonus codes.

5. Scratchcards – £5 risk-free wagering

You can’t get much better than a risk-free bet, which is what William Hill offer for new players at their Scratchcards site. To be eligible, you need to deposit and play through a minimum of £5 within 48 hours of signing up.

If you are down money after that time, you will be refunded 100% cashback up to a maximum of £5. This can be withdrawn if you like (hence why it’s a risk-free bet), or used on other William Hill products.

On the other hand, if you have won you won’t receive any cashback but you are up so of course you won’t mind!

There are 30 scratchcard games to choose from, with low-stakes play (minimum bet 20p) available. Some games, like The Big Wizard, Lucky Duck and Toy Factory, have six-figure jackpots which can be won with a small stake. Of course the chances are slim, but you never know.

This offer is open to all players who have never placed a real money bet on William Hill Scratchcards. Therefore, existing customers on other sections of the site e.g. sports betting, casino, poker; can take part in this promotion.

6. Bingo – deposit £10 play with £50

This site offers a Bingo site with wide selection of 75 ball, 80 ball and 90 ball games as well as a vibrant community. There games are available around the clock and most of them cost less than £1 to join. There is also a newly created bingo mobile application so that you can play on-the-go.

The William Hill promo code sign up bonus is significantly higher than other bingo sites: spend £10 and play with £50.

The promo is subject to the following T&Cs:

  • Spend £10 within 7 days of creating your William Hill Bingo ID
  • The bonus money is split between a £40 bingo bonus and a £10 games bonus

Note: After receiving your William Hill promo code sign up, you are entitled to a whole 8 days of free bingo on the site. Enough to learn your way around the platform and make some friends in the Bingo rooms.

Banking/Payment options

After signing up with your chosen promo code, you’ll be prompted to make your first deposit. All the most common kinds of online payment methods are accepted, like credit and debit cards, e-wallets, online banking services, cash voucherspre-paid cards and cash transfers. In most cases, transaction processing is immediate so you can get started playing straight away.

WHTV Live Streaming

To live every second of your sporting action, the operator has a streaming service available on the site. It can be found in the sportsbook section under the heading “WHTV”.

This service allows users to enjoy:

  • UK, Irish, and South African horse racing events live from the track
  • live football streaming
  • snooker, tennis, ice hockey
  • darts, cricket, basketball and many more

In order to access this service, you should first create an account at the operator and make sure your balance is positive. You can do so using a promo code in the section above.

Note: The ability to access all these sports in the live streaming section of the site is also dependent upon territorial restrictions. Some events will not be shown as the rights are not held by William Hill for these particular sporting events. Should this be the case, you will be able to get news on the live results either through the radio service available on the operator’s site or via a “live result” feature in your betting slip.

As one of the leading bookmakers in the UK and in the world, William Hill is a trusted name by punters everywhere. The advantages offered by the platform are numerous:

  • As a leading sportsbook, the offerings are up to the highest industry standards. It goes the extra mile with odds on a huge variety of sports as well as financial and entertainment markets which include betting on reality TV shows, politics, and big film awards like the Oscars.
  • Casino players can enjoy a variety of games in the casino, live casino, Vegas and games tabs.
  • The poker room offers tables for high-rollers and small-stake grinders alike. With a large user base, games are lively and the state-of-the-art platform ensures a smooth and graphically advanced playing experience.
  • The bingo hall is relatively new but is already reaching high levels of performance both in the selection and frequency of games and contests, as well as in the friendly user base to be found on the site.

Most importantly, with this bookmaker you are sure to have the latest advances in the online gaming industry available to you as they are released. This is the case for example with the “virtual sports” section, the WHTV live streaming function and the live casino which push the boundaries of virtual gaming constantly towards a higher standard. In this respect, the operator deserves its reputation as an industry leader.

In regard to its William Hill promo code sign up offer, the operator falls a bit short of the competition. However, it is our opinion that all of the other perks that come with creating an account make up for it. Moreover, special promos for very specific events compensate the rather slim welcome package.


Expired promotions

Euro 2016 free bet offer

As an official sponsor of the England team, William Hill went patriotic with their promotion around the 2016 European Championships. The England free bet special rewarded punters who backed England to win the tournament.

Each time England won a match at Euro 2016 (up to the quarter-final stage), those punters received a £5 free bet to use on any market they wished. The minimum required stake to qualify for this offer was £10.
