William Hill was founded back in 1934 in England, a time when gambling was still illegal. Now the company employs over 16,000 people and had a revenue of over two billion dollars in 2018. They are one of the largest and most trusted names in the industry with over 2,300 betting shops. William Hill is the largest sports betting operator in the UK.
In the summer of 2012, William Hill made its way to the United States. They entered into Nevada (the only state with full-fledged legal sports wagering at the time) by buying three sportsbook chains. The acquisition totaled $53 million and gave William Hill 55 percent of Nevada’s sportsbook locations. After the Supreme Court ruling in 2018, William Hill made plans to enter the state of New Jersey. They teamed up with Monmouth Park Racetrack and Ocean Resorts Casino where they operate their sportsbooks. William Hill’s New Jersey mobile sportsbook is the third biggest in New Jersey in terms of revenue.

William Hill features an “other” section on their sports list. This is where you can find different sporting events throughout the year that aren’t as common as the ones listed above. Right now William Hill is offering lines on Cricket matches as well as future bets on the Rugby World Cup.
The William Hill Sportsbook app has one of the best designs that make it one of the easiest apps to use in the industry. In the top left-hand corner of the app is a list icon to open up a tab that allows users to navigate through all sports available as well as easy access to support options, settings, and promotions. Users can access their entire account with one click in the top right-hand corner. From there users can deposit or withdraw funds with just a few clicks.
On the home screen is a running banner of all of William Hill’s current promotions. Below that on the middle of the screen is a list of icons of all of the available sports to bet on. Simply slide left-to-right to navigate through all of the sports options. In the lower middle of the home screen is all of the popular InPlay bets as well as upcoming bets. On the bottom of the home screen are the search option, sports listings, and an option to look at your bet slip.
William Hill’s New Jersey Sportsbook app design allows users to quickly access all functions of the app from the home screen. Speed and ease of use are crucial for bettors and the William Hill app comes through on both of those.
William Hill has its own Rewards Club for the state of New Jersey. Currently, the Rewards Club is valid only at the state’s physical sportsbooks.

The William Hill New Jersey Sportsbook is certainly one of the tops in the state. William Hill has two sportsbooks in the state of New Jersey, which gives bettors a good range of physical betting options. For the mobile app, it is one of the cleanest and most well constructed mobile apps in the industry. Even beginner bettors can navigate throughout the app with ease and should have no trouble placing bets. The app provides a large number of different bet types and a good collection of futures bets as well. William Hill offers some of the widest range of sports to bet on in the world.
The only downfall of this app would be its withdrawal methods. Deposit wise, they do well be allowing credit/debit cards as well as ACH/eCheck. If they would allow for withdrawals via ACH/eCheck, then this app would be about as good as it could possibly be. Every bettor knows that withdrawals are the most important aspect of any online/mobile gaming operation. Knowing that you can get your money in a quick and easy manner is what gives bettors peace of mind when gambling on a specific site. Traveling to the casino to collect your winnings defeats a major advantage of betting online. The other withdrawal option, the William Hill Prepaid Card forces users to have to sign-up for the card to withdraw funds if they don’t want to travel to the casino.
