Bonus, Promotions and Offers
Bettors in Canada can get a 100% sign-up matched deposit bonus. This is a very similar promotion to a number of other online sportsbooks and is available for all initial deposits between $20 and $100. Other terms and conditions apply, but these can be easily checked on the website or through a quick search online. The matched bonus is deposited into user’s accounts very quickly and is often available for use within a couple of hours of signing up. William Hill serves up many promotions throughout the calendar year usually relating to sporting events. Many of the promotions are already available with other bookmakers such as Offer Club where customers are encouraged to bet $20 a week on Soccer accumulators to receive a free $5 bet each week. The Acca Insurance offer has recently been extended to cover every sport and there are plenty to choose from! This allows Canadian punters to form an accumulator of five selections which could include NFL, NHL, Soccer or Tennis and if just one selection lets you down, the original stake is returned.
