William Hill Poker

Let’s take a look at the top rated poker site in the UK. William Hill Poker has some fairly stiff competition in the online poker market in the UK but they stay ahead of the competition with farseeing planning involving their expansion into emerging online poker markets. Would William Hill Poker do well in the US is the question on a lot of people’s minds. William Hill, Poker Stars, WPT Poker and Betfair are the top four contenders that we see as making a successful integration into or back into the US online poker market.

Betfair vs William Hill Poker

William Hill poker would be especially profitable and welcomed in the US because of their massive financial holdings, but also because of their shining reputation for fair play. Betfair is currently in an s-storm related to their online security, but that shouldn’t harm them too much as they were victims and not culprits. Still though, even though bad press can be good, press related to casino security can definitely fall into the negative. Betfair is generally a responsible and reliable online poker room operator so we still see them as neck and neck with William Hill Poker in contention for the US poker market.

How can William Hill Poker stand out as the leader in online poker? William Hill simply needs to continue with their same great promotions and offer more poker tournaments. Even with the WHOP, the William Hill online poker tournaments are still sorely underrated in comparison to the WPT Poker tournaments and Poker Stars. Now would be a great time for William Hill Poker to further their international poker tournaments pursuit while Poker Stars is focused on gaining the Asian poker market and WPT is working on expanding their poker franchise.

Spain is being a little flaky with their online gambling legislation and so is Germany, but William Hill has such a strong poker fanbase in the UK that they should be able to weather out any issues that might arise from the legal changes with online poker happening around the world. One area in which William Hill already makes a great showing is their traffic and their player quality.

iPoker and William Hill

William Hill poker is on the iPoker network which keeps their traffic very high consistently. With the drop in numbers of worldwide online poker players since the US made its stand in April, William Hill has still been able to maintain great numbers. This is especially true for the William Hill Poker cash games. Still though, they will need to strengthen their marketing efforts for their poker tournaments to get the quality players that used to come out of the US.

Right now, online poker room operators like Poker Stars and Bet365 are getting a bit complacent in their top rated positions. The market is quickly going to become very competitive again over the next two years and complacency simply won’t do. William Hill, Poker Stars, Betfair and Bet365 are going to need to bust out some killer bonuses, poker promotions and increase their loyalty program perks to keep players from having a wandering eye. Typically in business, a time like we are experiencing now in the online poker market is when the fresh blood comes in and knocks out the old kings of commerce. Betfair is one of the younger guys, kind of like the Apple (early days) of online casinos and online poker. William Hill might be considered the modern day Microsoft of online poker and one could see Bet365 as a sort of Amazon of online poker. This means that if online poker operators like William Hill and Betfair don’t stay relevant, don’t keep up with the times and the needs of new players, that they could very quickly be overtaken by new online gambling operators.

William Hill Online Poker Championship

Consider the history of Betfair, they were able to easily overtake their competition even to the point of buying them out and that was done with a simple innovation in the way that sports wagering takes place. Innovation in the way that people play online poker is one area where William Hill will be able to stay relevant. As the world’s largest poker room, William Hill can use their power to start enticing loyal members from other online poker rooms with high money bonuses for new players plus new ways to play like live dealers and 3D online poker rooms.

One way in which William Hill is proving their ability to stay flexible in their expansion of operations is by offering other online gambling products besides online poker. Besides their sports betting and online casinos, they are also getting into the stock betting market with their binary betting product. However, if they want to hold their lead over online poker in the UK and the world, they will want to put even more funding into their William Hill Online Poker Championship in terms of cash prizes, more tables and more advertising.

Freeroll Tokens are another way in which William Hill is keeping in touch with what their players want. Right now William Hill Poker has a $1400 new player bonus which includes $2700 first deposit freeroll tokens. That’s quite an impressive starting bankroll for the poker tables.
