William Hill Welcome Bonus - How to Claim

William Hill has a very simple, yet easy-to-get welcome offer. Upon registering for your account and using a promo code, players will get $50 for free after they wager $50 on sports bets.

It’s really that simple. It may not be one of the exorbitant dollar amounts welcome offers, but it’s easy to new and casual players to access, which will get them to play more.

The registration consists of two steps in which you need to provide William Hill with personal information, due to gambling winnings being considered income by the IRS. This information includes things such as your name, date of birth, address, last four of your social security number, and of course, your username, password and email. The signup button can be found atop the William Hill homepage.


William Hill US has functionality for both desktop and iOS/Android applications. Additionally, William Hill has geolocation software to detect that you are actually located within New Jersey, as players must be in the state to make wagers.

Beyond this, it’s not readily apparent if William Hill works with additional software companies to help with their overall sports betting or app distribution, though third party software and partners are mentioned in their terms of service.

Betting Lines at William Hill

With the NBA Finals currently happening, these are popular betting lines worth comparing. With FanDuel being a main competitor, who better to compare with? Going into Game 6 of the NBA Finals, here is how they compare:

  • FanDuel: Toronto Raptors (+124); Golden State Warriors (-146)
  • William Hill: Toronto Raptors (+120); Golden State Warriors (-140)

As you can see, they’re relatively similar. Sure, they have slightly worse odds on the underdog, but also slightly better on the favorite. Also remember that betting lines on sportsbooks could reflect the amount of bets they have taken on a respective team.

Partial Cash Out

This is just as it sounds. However, unlike other sites where you can do a complete cash out, William Hill offers a partial cash out. Maybe your team isn’t in a totally great spot, but perhaps you still have some confidence. Maybe you don’t want to pull out, but you want your bet to be $30 instead of $50 — William Hill allows for this.

InPlay Bets

This is just a fancy terminology for live in-game betting. Simply click on this on the site and you’ll see all available sports that are live and that you can wager on.
