William Hill Review
One name synonymous with sports betting in the UK is undoubtedly William Hill. This venerable company began its business way back in 1934 when – can you guess? – Mr William Hill himself started taking postal and telephone bets. With the legalisation of betting shops in the UK in 1961 the company began to build a formidable estate of high street ‘bookies’, growing into one of the leading brands in the industry. From this solid foundation in the real-world, William Hill hit the web with its original Sportsbook service back in 1998, showing some considerable prescience of the future impact of online betting when getting online at the time involved painfully arthritic dial-up modems!
Today, William Hill has grown its online business to encompass all manner of betting entertainment including online poker, casino and bingo products. Thankfully it’s never taken its eye off the importance of us sports fans, and continues to keeps a vast community of punters in touch with their passion through its online site and real-world betting shops.

Layout & Usability
Bet365’s sports betting service is just part of a full-service site that offers customers access to online casino, poker and bingo products with just a single account. The sports betting itself is conveniently divided into a Sports and In-Play tab too, giving you quick access to forecasting future fixtures or the adrenaline thrill of a punt on a whole host of sporting events happening right now.
Whether perusing markets in the Sports or In-Play sections you’ll find a phenomenal number of sporting sub-categories to explore, so whether your prime interest is Premiership football or you’ve a penchant for punts on Alpine skiing we think you’ll have no shortage of bets to tempt you. Bet365 is even leading the way with betting on e-Sports, which is forecast to become a growing trend.
Graphically the site is pretty functional – it’s text heavy with few graphics to break it up – however the navigation is very well thought through and we found compiling selections on the integrated Bet Slip effortlessly intuitive. We also have to say Bet365’s site works a treat on mobile too, so it’s got you easily covered if your phone is your weapon of wagering choice.
