William Hill Poker Review

William Hill Poker is the newest offering from long-running, well-respected UK/European bookmaker William Hill Casino Group. WHCG is most renowned for its successful brick-and-mortar (land-based) operations, but now provides equally superior service in its vast online network of sports betting, casino, arcade, interactive TV & radio, and poker sites.

In addition to the most common smattering of bonuses and promotions, of which William Hill Poker has most of the best (royal flush, bad beat, guaranteed prize pools), they also have more than one "Get Paid to Play" programs (among my favorite of online gambling's promotional inventions). No part of the William Hill Poker enterprise is open to U.S. players (even though U.S. dollars is one of the currencies they recognize). However, William Hill Online Poker does not recognize currency exchange rates.

In other words, the maximum rake is either $3 or 3 pounds sterling, the paid-to-play bonus is either $25 or 25 pounds sterling, so choose wisely which currency to play with. A keen eye on currency exchange rates could be used here to your advantage. [Note: details below are reported in US dollars.]
