What Users Think?!

User ReviewsAs is the case with any and every app that has been available to download for a while, the Will Hill mobile app has been reviewed a considerable number of times by users on both the Google Play Store and the App Store.

Those reviews are a veritable gold mine when it comes to getting an insight into what users thin of the app, so we’ve taken the time to comb through them for some clues. When you look at the star rating of the app on both the Play Store and the App Store, you find that William Hill have achieved around a four out of five star rating.

That is extremely impressive as compared to other sports betting apps, and the popularity of the William Hill is borne out by the comments which accompany its reviews. The vast majority of those praise the app’s usability and the range of markets available, and there is only one slight issue which recurs regularly as a criticism from users. That is that the app can sometimes lag or be a little slow, especially when it comes to displaying a live stream, but this is certainly not something that is true to William Hill’s mobile offering alone.

What We Think?!

William Hill are unquestionably a bookmaker who fall within the category of the most reliable and trustworthy around. That alone is something to recommend them to punters but, on top of that, their mobile app is also really impressive and provides an excellent all-around service. It’s for that reason that we have given it a lofty rating of four out of five stars.

The app is perhaps not the easiest on the eye but what it may lack in attractiveness it definitely makes up for in functionality. It is really swift and simple to wend your way through the app and to find the sport, event and particular bet you want to place. What’s more, the selection of different wagers that William Hill do provide is second to none and encompasses loads of in-play betting options if that’s your thing.

When you head to an event which is in-play, too, William Hill’s interface for following the action and placing your bets is one of the best around and typically features a live scoreboard plus graphics and text commentary to show what’s happening in the event. Add to all of that the fact that plenty of events across lots of sports also benefit from live streams through the ‘WHTV’ feature, and you can’t fail but conclude that the William Hill app is a great choice for any punter looking to bet on the move.
