William Hill Poker is one of the oldest and largest bookmakers in the U.K., providing gambling services offline and online since 1934.
Now part of the booming iPoker network, traffic and promotions at William Hill are first rate, with $16 million in prize money a month now guaranteed on the network.
Multi-currency deposit and play is also available, as is a wide range of games and a great selection of sit-and-gos.
Given its U.K. origins, William Hill Poker is a very popular poker room for European and British players in particular, making the busiest traffic time around European peak hours.
Because of the prominent sportsbook presence, the poker tables are filled with relatively wild and loose games. Play in general is considered pretty loose and juicy, with tons of opportunities for easy games, particularly at the micro stakes.
The software has good functionality and the lobby got a well-deserved makeover in 2008, giving it a cleaner and more usable look and making finding tournaments a lot easier.
Games offered at William Hill Poker are Texas Hold'em, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, Seven-Card Stud, Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo and Five-Card Stud. As an added bonus, William Hill Poker also spreads high-stakes black jack, casino games and sports betting.
Real-money player statistics as of June 2009 show 10,000 ring-game players at peak hours and 55,000 tournament players at peak hours.
