William Hill Australia Review
William Hill, perhaps the biggest brand in online sports betting, a name synonymous with bookmaking, is open for business in Australia. Founded in England way back 1934, the William Hill sports book business has grown through the decades to be recognised as one of the biggest and most reputable bookies in the world. In 2014, William Hill bought an interest in Australian bookmakers Sportingbet, Centrebet and Tom Waterhouse. Following that strategic move, they are now officially operating under the William Hill Australia brand, to service punters Down Under.
Australian sports bettors can expect big things from William Hill. It’s clear that they are going to compete with the industry’s biggest betting agencies on branding and promotion. This means that the promotional value will be transferred to punters in the form of free bets on registration, deposit bonuses for existing Sportingbet customers, and daily sports betting promotions. We recommend riding this wave of generosity during William Hill’s early months of operation. Of course, if it’s reliability and trust that you base your ratings of bookmakers on, you won’t find any provider more reputable. William Hill are a global gaming giant, what’s more, they’re now an international brand on the move with innovative betting software available for their customers use.

For existing customers of Sportingbet, all account and user details remain the same, however everything is run through and under the William Hill online business. It signals a change for Australia’s online betting providers, Sportingbet was one of the country’s largest and most popular brands, however, evidently the executives saw benefit in introducing the William Hill brand. It’s fair to assume that with the introduction of bigger brands and investment, that intensity of competition will soon follow.
