William Hill Horseracing
William Hill has always been the “bad boy” of the UK betting market. Founded in 1934 – 27 years before off-course bookmaking was legal – and now run by self-confessed “rascal” CEO Ralph Topping, the company has withstood investigation by the Serious Fraud Office, the Office of Fair Trading and the Advertising Standards Authority.
However, through the company’s chequered history, it has always provided an excellent and fair service to those who bet with William Hill horseracing – so much so that it won the industry coveted titles of “Bookmaker of the Year”, “Betting Chain of the Year” and “Betting Shop Manager of the Year” in the 2010 Betview Awards.
The online version of William Hill horseracing provides an exceptionally comprehensive form and ratings guide in association with the Racing Post, daily podcasts suggesting reasons why your selection may or may not be good enough, and a “best odds guarantee” on early prices and board prices which is exclusively available to online customers and is available for both single and multiple bets.
Placing an Online Bet with William Hill Horseracing
It could not be easier to place an online bet with William Hill horseracing. When you first enter the horseracing pages of the William Hill site, the market leaders for the next three races due to go off are displayed at the top of the page. If one of these horses is your fancy, you simply click on the price (or S.P. button) to add your selection to your betting slip, where you simply enter your stake and whether you want to back the horse to win or each way, and the bet is placed.
If you are placing your bets for the day, you can add horses one-by-one to your betting slip and then choose from a full range of multiple bets. William Hill horseracing also enables you to take Tote odds on your selections and participate in the daily jackpot, placepot and quadpot pools at each U.K. horseracing meeting.
Winnings are calculated immediately and credited back into your account once the “weigh in” is announced after your final selection has won. If you would like to find out what your return is on your winning selections to date, take advantage of our free bet calculator.
William Hill horseracing covers races from the U.K. and Ireland, South Africa, Australia and the United States. You can listen to the races live on William Hill Radio (which also provides daily racing previews from 11.00am) or watch them on your computer provided your bet is of a certain value (£1.00 for single bets and multiple bets depend on the total stake – for example a £0.40 yankee or £0.50 patent would also qualify).
