William Hill
Founded in 1934, William Hill is one of the best-known names in the gambling industry, providing gaming and betting services across three channels: online, on the high street and on the phone. They have been listed on the London Stock Exchange (WMH.L) since 2002 and employ over 15,000 people in the UK, Ireland, Israel and Bulgaria. The Sportsbook serves customers from over 175 countries, offering six languages and 11 currencies.

An all new website has appeared for WH for 2009. Its definitely an improvement as the old one was struggling to display all the available WH products. Now the top half of the screen is a menu which never goes away, regardless of the page you move to.

Its all very slick. If you are a Greyhound fan then the William Hill Radio coverage is easily the best in the business. If you like to bet on horses and stake at least five pounds then you can get to watch the race on your computer screen. Plenty of markets on every sport currently going.

Its all down from hereOne sad loss is the indication of the maximum bet. When I tried to bet £1200 on a golf three ball at 7/4 it failed. Turns out I could bet £1143 so that their liability was no more than £2000.

As far as credibility and fairness goes, I rate them as beyond gold. William Hill is regulated and long established, and pays winners. When I had a problem it was resolved in good time, but customer service put the burden on me to contact them several times to solve it, when I felt the burden should have been on them to contact me. But they are quick to respond to an email and resettle fairly. All in all, a good online wagering choice.
This site shows how simple design makes life easy for the user and how to set up simple 'frames' web pages (split screen) that give you what you want. Its really quite easy to navigate and you opt for decimal odds display on individual sports which could be very useful if you want to compare prices.

Could do better with the percentage
