WilliamHill Racebook Review

WilliamHill is one of the world's leading betting companies that specializes in legal off-track wagering.

It was founded in 1934 and now has over 70 years of experience in offering betting services. Currently, WillamHill operates over 2,200 licensed betting offices in the UK and they have over 450,000 telephone clients worldwide.

WilliamHill, through WilliamHill.com, operates one of the fastest growing internet gambling sites in the UK. They have 292,000 active clients to date. WilliamHill also operates over 7,500 Fixed Odds Betting Terminals across our retail estate.

WilliamHill reports that they employ over 13,000 people and has a yearly turnover of over US $15.5 billion.

The site is licensed in the UK, considered as one of the strictest gambling regulators in the world.

The first thing you'll notice at WilliamHill.com is the site's simplicity. Nothing overly fancy, just the links the sites major sections - sports, casino and poker at the top plus some nice graphics of their latest offerings at the middle of the page. You can view the site in Available in 8 languages, as of this writing.

All in all, it's fairly easy to navigate through WilliamHill.com. The site cleverly uses dropdown menus and a section-by-section left-hand menu. The horseracing interface is nicely put together. Click on multiple racing venues and you'll see the races available for the day, in just one page! This speeds things up when checking prices on a variety of events. Tickboxes makes it easy to see the entries for each race and superform provides comprehensive information on horses, jockeys and trainers.

There are no worries as far as the range of markets is concerned with a respectable list of early-price opportunities on a daily basis and all the usual ante-post books on offer.

WilliamHill offers Racing TV so punters can watch the action while they're at home. A qualifying bet of at least 5 on any race from selected UK tracks is required to be able to watch the race live. There are no subscription fees or hidden charges - only the requirement for one qualifying bet on the race.

One thing we like about WilliamHill is the horse racing radio. The usual live racing broadcast is complimented with regular big-race previews and a daily round-up of the day's action. More importantly, the live radio section includes interview highlights of trainers looking ahead to their runners at various meetings, daily previews with racing experts and punters. These helpful highlights are available on demand, allowing you to pick and choose which feature to listen to and when.

The site also offers form and statistical guides, for a more informed bet.

Another plus for the Hill's site is the low minimums, both in terms of deposits and stakes. An initial transfer of 2 - less then most firms - will get your account up and running, while wagers from 1p - the lowest on the web - and upwards are accepted.

This may not interest a lot of punters, but it sure is handy if you're just starting at horse racing betting.

The site also offers virtual horse and greyhound racing. And take note, the virtual horseracing game is in 3d.

You can also access the site through your mobile phone. You can bet and browse live prices, opportunities, results and games wherever you are. WilliamHill registered users just have to go to http://mobile.willhill.com to access the service.

WilliamHill.com has been at the forefront of UK online betting for a number of years and provides punters with a slick all-round service. All in all this site should be in everyone's site betting list - it has a good range of markets, above average audio operation - particularly the trainer and pundit features - and forward thinking in terms of minimum deposits makes this one of the better sites around.
