How to get to the mobile-friendly William Hill site

To access the mobile-friendly version of William Hill’s site from any mobile device, simply use your browser to navigate to williamhill.com. The web app will automatically detect the type of device you’re using and attempt to adjust the site content to suit the size of your screen.

On the down side, the mobile version of the site is far from pretty, largely featuring just plain text on an insipid grey background. However, it’s efficient and works well on a range of devices.

Review of William Hill mobile apps

William Hill won the “Mobile Operator of the Year” award at the eGaming Review industry awards. The bookmaker’s mobile sports betting apps for iPhone, iPad and Android provide all the features that mobile punters need and then some.

Unlike William Hill’s desktop web site, the apps are clean and clear, with few distractions.They load reasonably fast (although not as fast as some) and do what you need them to do, typically without problems.

The apps provide access to every sports betting market featured on William Hill’s desktop web site, including a vast number of in-play markets. They also allow easy account management and provide live scores for events in a wide range of sports.
