We’ve all been in that sticky situation, you want to make last minute bets but you’re stuck at home, and you definitely don’t want to leave the room and miss the game. Well that’s where William Hill’s mobile app flies in wearing a metaphorical super hero cape.
You can bet on absolutely anything in your favourite sporting events from football to horse racing! You might have already read our William Hill Sports review, but what if you and technology aren’t the closest of friends? Well we’re here to help out. With this in-depth guide we’ll help you with everything you’ll ever need to know about the William Hill mobile app, so you won’t have to worry about the technical side letting you focus more on the game or race at hand.
All the images in this guide have either come from the iPhone app or the William Hill website, other smart phones like Androids might look slightly different however it will mostly remain the same.
I’m going to cover topics like “How to place a bet” and “Where to download this app”, but before any of that, I’ll go over the app itself.
Covering The Basics
No matter where you are in the app, you will always have access to five different areas:
- Home – The very first thing you’ll see.
- Sports – Where to go to see the bets you can make.
- My Account – If you want to view what you’ve been doing.
- Settings – Come here to change your app and account settings
- Bet Slip – Where you place that all important wager.
This allows you quick and easy access to all the important functions without having to backtrack through several screens. The other benefit of the general user interface is that you can always see your balance, so whether you’re looking for a bet, placing a bet or even if you’re just curious about how much is in your account it’ll be clear to you at all times.
You will have access to all the sporting events that are available on William Hill online, so you’ll still be able to find everything William Hill offers available on their mobile app. You can also change any of your account information from your mobile app, so you don’t need to panic if you don’t have access to a computer.
Live Odds: What Are The Chances?
Anytime you place a bet you’ll want to know what the odds are of winning. William Hill has this covered by showing you the odds with the actual bet, so you’ll never have to search through various screens just to place one bet. Just to top all of this off, they also have the best odds for UK and Irish horse racing, not an offer you’ll want to miss!
All Or Nothing
Sometimes things might not go your way, in fact they might not go anyone’s way and you’ll end up with a draw. William Hill understands that this is disappointing, so if your match ends up in a 0-0 draw, William Hill will allow you to re-place your bet on another match! Ending up with a draw isn’t so bad now.
Anything Else I Should Know About?
What happens if you want to make some bets but there aren’t any sports you want to place a wager on at the time? Well, William Hill also has virtual games for you to enjoy. These games will simulate several sports which you can bet on, allowing you to win money off the horses when they aren’t even racing!
Home Is Where The Heart Is
The home tab is what you’ll need most; this is where you have access to all the important areas. It shows all the available sports and events that are in progress and also the most popular games at the time. It has other handy features which will let you know what games are coming on soon and also what is trending on the app, so you won’t miss a beat.
If that wasn’t enough, they have also included access to popular virtual casino games here like digital roulette, so if you fancy your luck as a high-rolling gambler you can have a go from here.
Play The Game
All of the sports you’ve enjoyed from the William Hill online bookmakers can be accessed in the sports tab. Here you’ll be able to choose your sport and go into the details of what kind of bet you want to make, regardless of what the sport is.
Tell Me More
Once you’ve decided what sport you want to place a wager on, you can go into further details about the bet. Choose your sport and you’ll go into further details about matches or a race, who’s playing and when the game is on! Here you can make basic bets like who you think will win, but for more detailed bets you can go even further into the app. Choose the game you want to place a bet on and you’ll be given several options, like if there will be a red card, you can even see who the favourites are for the horse races! You can also see different sections of bets by using a separate menu which will allow you to see either generic wagers or more in-depth bets!
You can literally bet on anything these days, I’ve seen people placing wagers on what hockey players will get into a fight first! William Hill has this covered as you can now place small wagers on, well, anything. When using the app, just go into the more in-depth sections of the game or race you’re betting on and you’ll find a multitude of options to choose from, here’s just a few examples:
- Next footballer to get a yellow card.
- Next tennis player to hit an ace.
- What jockey will fall off their horse.
- Next rugby player to be put in the sin bin.
- Who will putt the next hole-in-one.
There are so many different ways of betting with this feature, and it all takes place while the game is in progress, so if you’ve got a good idea on who’s going to score next, or even who’s going to completely lose their temper and go for an early bath then make sure you place some money on it happening.

Keep An Eye On The Match
Sometimes, you might not even be interested in betting on a match, but you still want to know how the game is going. Well if this is the case you can use the app to check up on the details on the game. You’ll be able to see how long the match has been on for, what the score is and any other details you might want to know. This means you can keep an eye on hundreds of matches and races no matter where you are!

What Have You Been Up To Recently?
The tab labelled “My Account” does exactly what it says on the tin; it shows you what’s been going on in your account. This includes what previous bets you’ve made, what bets you’ve made that are awaiting an outcome, and how much you won (or will win) from a wager. This is brilliant for keeping track of how you’ve been doing and also to remind yourself of what bets you’ve made just in case you try to bet on the same match twice!
Setting Yourself Up
This is where you adjust your account details or make the app easier for you to use. There are quite a few features here, each were made to make your life easier whilst using William Hill’s mobile betting app. Have a play around with the setting until you find a layout which works well for you!
The Final Step
This is where all the action happens, and ironically, but innovatively, you’ll be spending the least amount of time here. This tab only consists of the betting slip where you place your money on your chosen bet.
You don’t have to remember codes or game names though, once you’ve chosen what you want to bet on from the sports menu you’ll be taken straight to the betting slip tab with all the information ready for you. All you’ll need to do is place how much money you want to bet and that’s it! And if that wasn’t enough then you can also see how much you’re expected to win from your bet, you can’t say William Hill doesn’t do you any favours!
I’ve Heard Enough, Where Do I Get This App?
Downloading the app is just as quick and simple as using the app itself. Just visit William Hill’s website and go to their “mobile” page, from here you can send the download link to your smart phone.
From here you just need to download the app and then add it to your home page, and that’s it!
