Full Live Casino Review
 
 

NoUnfortunately players from United States are NOT accepted.

William Hill has been a familiar name to me for most of my life. It’s difficult not to know the name when it’s present in every high street across the UK.

I always thought that it was just a betting shop, a place I normally visit before the Grand National to place my each way bets.  

With all the TV advertising for their Internet site and online casino, it was only a matter of time before I had a look at what else they had to offer.

I wasn’t expecting to find a William Hill Live Casino and I certainly wasn’t expecting to find two! and certainly not from the leading two suppliers in the marketplace, Playtech and Evolution Gaming.

So what did I find?

A game of two half’s if I’m being totally honest.

The Playtech live casino, which can be found under the Casino tab on the home page, offers 4 games:

  • Live Roulette with La Partage
  • Live Baccarat
  • Live Blackjack
  • Live Casino Hold’em

All streamed from Playtech’s European based studios.

William Hill has taken the basic generic games that Playtech has to offer. Stakes limits are low and there are no dedicated William Hill tables. If you’re looking for Playtech casinos with dedicated tables and Asian dealers you can’t go wrong with either the Paddy Power Live Casino or Bet365 Live Casino.

The Evolution casino, which has its own Live Casino tab on the homepage is a different kettle of fish.

You’ll find:

  • Live Blackjack.
  • Live Roulette.
  • Live Baccarat (with the newly introduced Live Baccarat Squeeze).
  • Live 3 Card Poker.
  • Live Casino Hold’em.
  • Live Caribbean Stud Poker.
  • Live Ultimate Texas Hold’em.
  • Dreamcatcher.

There are loads of dedicated tables, split between a number of themed rooms (Vegas, Macau & Mayfair Casino). There’s a great range of stake limits for both the low and high rollers and a range of roulette tables with multi-language dealers and La Partage.

As ever the Evolution Gaming software performs really well and is also available to mobile users.

The VIP program is well established and is very similar to the one provided by Bet Victor.

I haven’t been invited to join so can’t comment on it. BetVictor has 2 live casinos and I make no secret that they get most of my time when I’m playing online.

Of the two casinos, the Evolution one gets my vote every time. 

It has more games, better Blackjack side bets, dedicated tables and a multi-table game option that enables you to play 4 games at the same time.

Although when I’ve tried it I’ve found the streaming response times to be slow and it does my head in trying to keep track of what’s going on.

Live Casino promotions are pushed through the Evolution casino on the dedicated tables. There’s always a promotion going on so it’s worth checking my feed for the latest news.

William Hill Live Casino – Playtech Options

As you can see in the grid below the options are OK, but nothing special. Clearly, William Hill is investing in the Evolution Software more.

William Hill Live Casino – Evolution Options

Even at a glance, you can see that the options for the Evolution casino are plentiful.

Both Baccarat and Blackjack have a full suite of side bets to choose from and with the addition of Live 3 Card Poker with its side bets, it’s an easy choice to play here rather than at the Playtech casino.

Banking

As you can see from the list above William Hill offer loads of different Deposit and Withdrawal methods.

When you make a deposit the money goes into a Main Wallet. There is no shared wallet across all of the sites so you will have to move money around using the internal transfer facility. If you want to play the Playtech Live casino you’ll need funds in the Casino Wallet. Transferring takes a few seconds so it’s not the end of the world.

You can expect to receive your Withdrawals within 24 hours, if not sooner with some methods and the great thing is you can also withdraw at weekends!

Security

As you’d expect with a leading online casino security is at the heart of everything they do, be it preventing fraud, to ensuring transactions are encrypted so no-one can get access to your personal details.

The Casino is licensed in Gibraltar and by the UK Gambling Commission.

Support

Customer Support is available 24×7 365 days a year. You can contact them by Live Chat, Email or Telephone.

Live Chat is only enabled once you’re logged in, so you can’t really get questions answered quickly without registering.

They do have an FAQ and an online help database if you prefer to try and work out issues yourself.

Bonuses & Loyalty

Live Casino players have access to two sets of bonuses.

For the Casino (Playtech Live Casino) – A Welcome Bonus of 100% up to £150 or if you’re a High Roller then you can get £300 when you deposit £1000. This comes with a wagering requirement of 20 x Bonus and Deposit before you can withdraw and you have 30 days before the bonus expires.

When you’re playing live games they have a reduced level of stake contribution for the wagering requirements. Blackjack & Baccarat are 20%, Casino Hold’em & Roulette count for 25%.

For the Live Casino (Evolution) – If you deposit more than £25 and play it through 8 times (£200), you can claim £25 cash back into your account.   Also on a Tuesday and Wednesday’s there is a promotion running at the Evolution Live Casino where if you deposit £20 and lose you get your money back!

Summary

With two Live Casinos, William Hill has got it covered. They have the most extensive set of dedicated tables I’ve come across since I started reviewing live casinos on Live Casino Comparer. Betting limits start low and end high so there are stakes to suit every pocket.

If I’m being picky, which I am, you can play at better Playtech live casinos elsewhere, but I’m very impressed with the Evolution setup.

I have no experience of how they treat VIP’s as I’ve not reached that status, so please if you are trying them out at that level let me know how you get on.
