William Hill is one of the newer companies to have graced the Australian online betting scene, and we’re sure glad they have. Since their grand unveiling in Australia early in 2015 punters have embraced the iconic UK brand.

The truth is WilliamHill has been making waves in Australia long before their official launch. In 2013 Hills bought CentreBet.com and SportingBet.com.au and acquired TomWaterhouse.com.au later that same year.

SportingBet was later reborn as WilliamHill.com.au and soon the company also rolled Centrebet and TomWaterhouse into the same brand, as well as appointing Tom Waterhouse boss of the Australian operations.

HorseBetting wholeheartedly endorses William Hill as a great bookie for Australian punters to use for their racing needs. They have a huge range of thoroughbred, harness and greyhound racing markets with competitive odds and are a trusted brand despite a few hiccups in recent times.

William Hill announced at the start of 2017 they were relaunching Centrebet in one of the more bizarre backflips by a bookmaker in recent times.

WilliamHill.com.au $502 match deposit bonus

William Hill offers each new customer one of two attractive and generous sign up bonuses currently available to Australian punters.

Offer one: To be eligible for this bonus you must create an account with William Hill and upon making your first deposit of $30 or more you will receive $100 worth of bonus bets.

Offer two: Once you have created an account and made a deposit, William Hill will match the value of the first bet you make up to $502. That means you get a free bet from William Hill up to $502.

Just be aware that these offers are not available to residents of NSW, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia.

William Hill Horse Racing Promotions

On top of their generous sign up bonuses, William Hill also has several permanent promotions in place for horse racing and trots punters.

Top Tote Plus 5%

This is a great incentive to bet with William Hill. Not only does William Hill boast great fixed prices on Win and Place bets but they also offer the top price of the three (QLD, VIC and NSW) TAB tote’s plus 5% on top of that.

Protest Payout

This is getting to be a popular feature among online bookies so it’s great to see William Hill are running with it too. With the Protest Payout if you have a win bet on the horse first across the line but later loses due to a challenge, William Hill will payout on first past the post AND the new winner.

Quick Payouts

William Hill endeavors to get your money back to you as soon as possible with all Win bets on Australian thoroughbred and harness races paid out within one minute of the interim dividends.

Midweek Madness

This is one of William Hill’s permanent fixtures. Every weekday from 12pm to 1pm one horse’s odds in a race selected by William Hill will have its odds inflated.

On top of all of these great promotions William Hill always has weekly specials or inflated odds on certain races. So always keep an eye on their promotions page for their latest deals.

Horse racing bet types at William Hill

William Hill is proud to offer a wide range of betting options on horse racing from all over the world. Obviously Australia is a big focus, but Hills also extensively covers UK, Irish and American gallops.

Win – a bet on which horse will come first.

Place – a bet on whether your horse will run first, second or third.

Quinella – a bet on the first two runners past the post.

Exacta – a bet on on the first two runners past the post in the correct order.

Trifecta – a bet on the first three runners past the post in the correct order.

First Four – a bet on the first four runners past the post in the correct order.

Win Six – a bet to pick six winners from six races nominated by the national TAB.

Quadrella – a bet to pick four winners from four races nominated by the national TAB.

Treble – a bet to pick three winners from three races nominated by the national TAB.

Daily Double – a bet to pick two winners from two races nominated by TAB Victoria.

Place Card – a William Hill exclusive innovation, this is similar to a quadrella, but instead of picking four winners across four races you have to pick four placed horses across four races.

Parlay Options – William Hill has a range of parlay betting options ranging from three legs (the Trixie) to eight legs (the Goliath).

Mobile Betting

William Hill is accessible via your desktop, laptop, tablet and phone. They have an app available for both Android and iOS mobile devices, which makes betting on the go that much easier.

If your mobile device doesn’t operate under either of those systems you can always access the site via your mobile devices web browser and use the easy sign-up process.

Betting markets are extensive on mobile devices and mirror the William Hill desktop website in most cases.

Once you have found the race you are looking to bet on you will see options to change what odds are displaying, i.e place or fixed odds. You simply tap the odds you wish to get and it will send your selection over to the bet slip.

On this same page you also have the option to place a trifecta, quaddies, first fours and every other bet type imaginable.

Verdict in a few words

William Hill is well worth putting in your rotation if you punt on the horses. Like a lot of Australian licensed bookies Hills has been known to cut off successful punters, but for the average punter they provide a service second to none in Australia.

Hills’ mobile service (apps and mobile website) are first class, which is critically important in this day and age with more and more people punting while on the go.

They offer live odds and results of all racing in Australia on both their desktop and mobile sites.
