For the UK visitors to the website, I’ve decided to review several of the poker rooms that are based over in England. Of those that specialise in British poker players, I find William Hill to be the top flight. You will find up to 20,000 poker players at the tables during peak hours (evenings and weekends).
Now, I know what you’re going to say; “Your not from England so how can you review these sites.” You have a good point. I can’t play at these poker rooms for real money. That doesn’t mean that I can’t play at the Play Money tables. It also doesn’t mean that I can’t watch the players at the Real Money tables and tournaments.
That just means that I can’t comment on how fast the transactions are. But, I know for a fact that depositing and withdrawing from poker accounts in the UK aren’t an issue. Unlike the U.S., England regulates the poker sites and gives a lot of different fast deposit and quick withdrawal options such as Visa, MasterCard, Maestro, PayPal, Neteller, CashDirect, Ukash, Click2Pay, ClickandBuy, and many more.
William Hill Poker Features
Getting started is easy. Simply download their free software and create your poker account. Then, log in and choose a Nickname. You will have access to the poker lobby as you can see below.
Next, click on the green Cashier button at the bottom of the screen to fund your account. Once you have done this, you will have access to enter and join any of the Cash Tables, Sit & Gos, Scheduled Tournaments, and Casino Games.
You will see all of the these options on the left side of the screen. You can filter out any of the table stakes and card games that you don’t want to see by sorting through the Choose Game section.
Above, you can see the poker room that you will enter. You can choose from Texas Hold’em, Omaha High, Omaha High Low, 7-Card Stud, Sit & Go Tournaments, Multi-Table Tournaments, Cash Games, Speed Poker and Casino Side Games.
If you have some down time, you can click on the Blackjack link to play a couple of hands while you wait for the next hand or between breaks during tournaments.
You can find a lot of promotions here including the William Hill Poker Bonus for new players who make their initial deposit at the poker room. It is a £10 Free with No Deposit Required. This way, you can give their Real Money tables a try without having to make a deposit. Use the Coupon Code WHP2000 at the Cashier.
In addition to that, there are monthly rewards, Summer Freerolls, Points Booster, Casino Refund, and the $20,000 Summer Spirit. View the Bonus Terms for more details. This winter, you can play in the Caribbean Poker Tour at Will Hill (8th to 25th November) as well as Irish Winter Festival (26th to 28th October).
There are plenty of tournaments to play at weekly and in the upcoming months. This includes the £45,000 Super Series, the Friday $40,000, the Saturday $25,000, and the Sunday $150,000 guaranteed.
There are also lots of daily poker tourneys with more modest prize pools. Check out the Sit & Gos if you want a better chance to win some money. Simply sit down at a table and wait for the one to four table poker tournament to begin. You can choose the stakes to match your bankroll. The general rule of thumb is that you should always have at least 20 buy-ins left when you are choosing a poker tournament.
