William Hill app Review
William Hill is a UK bookmaker that operates in Australia under the same brand name. The company was founded in 1934 and purchased three Australian bookmakers (Centrebet, Sportingbet and Tom Waterhouse) in 2015 to form William Hill’s Australian operations. The bookmaker is licensed by the Northern Territory Government in Australia.
Betstar App Compatibility
The William Hill mobile app can be downloaded onto an iPhone, iPad and Android devices. The mobile version can also be accessed from an internet browser (https://m.williamhill.com.au/). Keep in mind, your mobile phone software should be updated to enjoy the best betting experience.
Why download this app?
In general terms, using a mobile app is recommended for betting on the go and to take advantage of unique features. On the William Hill app, the main unique feature is Fast Multi which allows me to create a quicker multi-bet on different sports. In my opinion, the app is designed with a simpler navigation compared to the desktop website. On the homepage, I can find all upcoming races and the major categories are displayed at the top of every page.
Banking – Deposit funds into your account with a range of different deposit options. They also provide four withdrawal options: EFT, Bookmaker card, BPAY and PayPal.
Live Streaming – Watch Live Streaming of selected NSW and VIC racing during the week.
Live Betting – Access live betting markets and place your bets in-play via the mobile app.
Fast Multi – The multi maker is a unique feature of the mobile app. It allows me to view multiple sports and select choices from the one section, instead of browsing through different betting markets. I can choose head to head, line or total points in the multi-bet across sports.
Racing – Bet on the latest horse races, greyhounds and harness racing around the World.
Summer Sports – During summer, I can take advantage of betting promotions for Cricket, Tennis and more.
Winter Sports – During the AFL and NRL season, I can bet on a huge range of betting markets, futures and exoctics.
US Sports – This bookmaker covers US Sports very well with promotions and live streaming of the NBA/MLB.
The advantages of betting on the William Hill app are the unique features available. This includes wide variety of banking options, fast multi, live betting, live streaming and personal promotions.
The William Hill app is loaded with features and provides an enjoyable betting apps experience. The design of the mobile app is a streamlined version of the desktop website. The latest betting markets are easy to find and navigating the app is a simple process. They use the same navy blue and yellow colour scheme from the William Hill logo. Another good feature is that once I’m logged into the app, it will remember my login details which saves me from entering my login details.
The app is available from the Apple App Store when searching for William Hill on an iPhone or iPad. On Android, the app isn’t available on the Google Play Store due to their betting regulations. But the app can be downloaded onto an Android device via the website.

William Hill Bonuses and Promotions
Promotions at William Hill are different as they only provide personal promotions every day. I have the choice between one to five promotions per day and can only select one before it expires. They don’t give the option for mobile specific promotions. So once a single promotion is selected on the mobile app or desktop website, that counts for both devices. A few fixed promotions for racing at William Hill is Price Pump and Double Down.
The betting markets at this bookmaker are some of the best in Australia. They have all the basics covered in terms of sports and racing, while offering more advanced options. This includes their BuildABet feature which allows punters to contact William Hill with a betting market. In addition, the sports betting markets are well covered with exotic markets, such as alternate handicap and total points. So I can easily customize my betting experience at this bookmaker. The racing betting markets are well designed. I can easily swipe through each race during a meet or read a detailed form guide per runner. The markets available exactly match the desktop website as well.
The William Hill mobile app currently provides these deposit options:
Credit Card – Enter Credit/Debit card details.
POLi – Deposit from your bank directly into your William Hill account.
William Hill Card – This bookmaker provides a visa card for access to your winnings, using as a deposit option and I can purchase everyday items.
Cash – Ability of making a cash deposit at an Australian store.
PayPal – Enter my PayPal email address and deposit funds instantly. The minimum deposit is $5.
Bank Transfer (EFT) – Deposit funds directing from my bank account with this option.
BPAY – Pay into my account with the BPAY deposit option.
In my review, I found that William Hill is more focused on racing in terms of how the app is designed, betting features and the promotions offered. They’re also the only bookmaker that live streams NSW racing. While William Hill is more recommended for betting on the races, they also provide a variety of live streaming options for sports around the world, such as NBA and MLB. So they can be recommended for betting on sports.
