The William Hill Poker bonus offers were once one of the best available online, especially for hardcore professionals, offering even more equivalent rakeback than PokerStars' Supernova Elite program (probably the most sought after rewards status in online poker). However, all iPoker network sites have since completely gutted their poker bonus offers, which is no doubt a contributing factor to their loss of traffic as players migrate to other networks, such as the WPN poker network. They have even eliminated their poker sign-up bonus.
Now that they no longer offer a deposit bonus, there are just two components of William Hill's poker bonus:
- William Hill Points
- poker freerolls
For every dollar of rake or tournament fee paid, players earn 9 William Hill Points (10 WHP per €1 and 14 WHP per £1). Status levels (ClubStatus1 to ClubStatus7) are determined by monthly WHPs earned. Status level then determines how many Club Points (CP) the player earns for each WHP earned that month, with a multiple ranging from x1 for ClubStatus1 & 2 to x2 for ClubStatus7. While WHP are used exclusively to track status, CP are used to purchase cash rewards or tournament tokens. Club Points that are not spent within a year of being earned are lost.
Luckily, William Hill still offers decent freeroll poker tournaments. Sadly though, the massive overhaul of their rewards program means that we no longer consider William Hill Poker as one of the best poker rooms online.
William Hill's poker bonus offers are also the best available on the iPoker network for players who generate more than $70,000/year in rake and fees. If your annual rake is between these ranges, however, you should instead download Boylepoker.
All iPoker sites give players the ability to complete daily missions to earn tournament tickets. Since it is impossible to determine whether players will complete these missions or not, we have not included them in our overall evaluation of William Hill's overall poker site ranking. However, their value is typically quite low (<$1).
