How to access William Hill from a banned country?

If you really want to access William Hill from a banned country, you can use a VPN Client/proxy. The VPN is a software allowing you to conceal your identity and spoof a certain geo-location.

All you have to do is pick a country (where WH is legit) in the VPN interface, and it will modify your IP address, allowing you to access and register on William Hill. However, you will need a good friend living in the country to provide a passport and bank statement on your behalf, in order to verify your account.

Truth be told, that's a lot of trouble when you know that there are so many bookmakers operating legally!
