William Hill is one of the most well-known brands in the industry and operates in over 70 countries worldwide, including in New Zealand. It was founded in the UK in 1934 by a gentleman with the same name and as well as a large online presence, they now have over 2,300 betting shops across the UK & Ireland.
This William Hill review will look at what the betting site offers to customers from Zealand in terms of sports, markets, offers & promotions and betting features.
William Hill are generally great for betting promotions but unfortunately, there is no sports sign up bonus available to new customers from New Zealand currently.
However, hopefully that won't put you off considering opening an account with them as they do offer a great all-round service and have offers available to existing customers that we will look at in more detail further down the review.
Will Hill are a great choice of bookie for betting on horse racing with great odds, wide coverage and live streaming of races all available.
William Hill have sponsored several high-profile races over the years such as the St Leger at Doncaster as well as being the main sponsor of ITV Racing in the UK. They're a favourite of many racing punters and it's not hard to see why.
Their odds on racing are excellent and if that wasn't good enough, they also offer customers free racing boosts every single day which allow you to boost the odds of racing bets of your choice.
You can also watch live racing from the UK, Ireland and elsewhere via their streaming service and also listen to commentary throughout the day through William Hill radio which is one of the best features of their horse racing service in our opinion.
Every day, customers receive three boosts to use on horse racing. You get to choose what bets you want to boost the odds of and they're a great way to get more value from your bets and result in bigger returns when they come in.
Simply add a racing single to your bet slip and you'll be given the option to boost the odds.
Streaming Sports On William Hill
Customers can watch live sporting events via their account throughout the day and with several sports available, there are often dozens of options day and night.
Log into your Will Hill account and you'll be able to stream live Football, Tennis, Greyhounds, Basketball, Ice Hockey and Horse Racing either through the website or the WH app via William Hill TV.
Streams are of excellent quality and cost nothing to view providing that you have either placed a bet within the last 24 hours or have a funded account.
Similar to a lot of bookies, for both horse racing and greyhound streams, you must place a bet on the race that you want to watch before being able to access the stream.
William Hill Radio
As mentioned, earlier, William Hill Radio is an excellent addition to the service and something that is used by thousands of customers on a daily basis. It's especially useful for those interested in horse and greyhound racing as there is ongoing commentary and analysis of runners and conditions throughout the day from industry professionals.
Like something for nothing? Then you'll love the range of free games at William Hill.
There are currently 3 different games available to customers from which they can win real prizes and cash and it costs nothing to play any of them.
Scratch of the Day
The first of the 3 games is 'Scratch of the Day' which is a free daily game from which you can win free bets, odds boosts and more.
To play, load the Scratch of the Day game and you'll be presented with a scratchcard featuring 6 different segments. Scratch the segments to reveal a prize and if you match three, you win that prize!
You'll find that you often win a prize of some sort which is a great reason to make the effort to play it each day.
Free or 4
Free or 4 is the latest addition to the free games and is again applicable to sports. To play this game, you must select 6 football matches that will have either 3 or 4 total goals scored in them. You are given a huge list of fixtures by William Hill and so you're not short of choice and it is a great chance to put your footy knowledge to the test and pick out some winners.
If you select six matches that 3 or 4 goals are scored in, you will win a whopping £200 in free bets! Even if you don't get all six correct, you can still win £5 in free bets for correctly predicting five matches or a £1 free bet for predicting four.
Free or 4 is available on a weekly basis to all customers.
The Bonus Drop is the final of the free games at Will Hill and applies to the casino. After loading the game, select one of the three segments to drop your disc from and it will work its way down the board into one of the segments at the bottom that either contain a prize or a 'no win'.
Prizes include free spins and casino bonuses from which you can win real cash from and as it costs nothing to play, it's a risk-free chance of making some money.
The Bonus Drop is available on a daily basis.

#YourOdds is William Hill's name for their Bet Builder feature. These bet types are available on several different sports, but are popular on football markets, and allow you to combine different markets on the same event into one bet.
You'll find a #YourOdds tab on each eligible event page and there are often price boosts available for pre-made #YourOdds bets.
If you'd like to end your bet early, whether it be because it's coming in and you'd like to lock in a profit, it's losing and you want to cut your losses, or if you've simply changed your mind about it, you can do so using the 'Cash In My Bet' feature.
Click on the 'Open Bets' tab on your bet slip after logging into your account and if your bet is eligible for Cash Out, you'll see an amount displayed next to it.
