Bookmaker overview

William Hill is one of the oldest bookmakers around. It was established in 1934 and over the past eight decades it has built a reputation as a reliable, honest and trustworthy bookmaker. Both its online offerings and the company’s betting shops provide customers with a safe and easy to use betting environment where they will be able to place bets with complete peace of mind.

The company operates across the world with over 16,600 employees in offices spread across the UK, Republic of Ireland, Gibraltar and elsewhere.
