William Hill Poker Download
If you are looking for a new site to play on, give the William Hill Poker download a try. William Hill is one of the biggest gaming brands on the Internet and its poker room is a great place to play online poker. William Hill Poker runs on the iPoker network, so there is plenty of action throughout the day. William Hill Poker is actually a part of iPoker 2, which is the “fishier” or easier to win segment of the iPoker network!
Even if you are new to the site, the William Hill Poker download is easy to install and a piece of cake to use, and opening an account at William Hill Poker also gives you single-account access to the William Hill Casino, Sports, Bingo and other William Hill services!
The William Hill Poker client provides two ways to view the poker lobby, the traditional 3-pane view and the newer 2-pane view.
The new 2-pane lobby contains all the info the 3-way view has, but offers extra information when a specific table/tournament is clicked. The row will then expand and show such details as the player names at the table, which players if any have notes or are in your buddy list, the chip counts of each player, and the overall amount of chips at the table.
This feature is quite useful because it allows you to quickly see if you have notes on those players. It’s also beneficial to take a seat at a table that has plenty of chips for you to take.
The William Hill poker client offers most of the normal features you could expect from the top internet poker rooms, including a four-color deck option to easily identify the suits, player notes, buddy list, VIP club, real-time game history to analyze your poker play, live support, avatars, search filters, and mini-table views for multi-tabling.
Each player has his or her own avatar, but you can hide them if you dislike them. You can’t upload unique images for avatars, but you can choose from one of the many provided by the site.
You would think that the table might get cramped with player avatars showing, but that’s not the case at all. It seems like there’s a ton of space for everything, whether its chip stacks, your hole cards, the community cards, or your bets. This will help prevent mistakes due to misreading stack sizes or hole cards as everything is very easy to see. You can also choose a four color deck and hide or display bet amounts on the William Hill Poker download.
You can take notes on your opponents while at the table, and there’s even options for color coding them. You can look at some of your table stats in the stats tab on the left side of the window.
You have different chat options while at the table. All player chat can be blocked, or you can pick and choose whose chat you block. If the chat bubbles at the table annoy you, you can switch them off. You can also remove the dealer chat.
A fun feature on the William Hill Poker download is all-in equity percentages. Going all-in allows players to see the probability that they will win the hand by the river. Having a higher probability to win a hand doesn’t mean you’re going to win it, but sometimes it’s nice to know you got it in good.
If you have trouble seeing and you usually have to squint to see things on your computer, you might be happy to learn that there are re-sizable tables on William Hill. Re-sizable tables are also useful for people wanting to play multiple tables because tilers can fit even more tables on their screens.
The buddy list is very useful and offers plenty of management features. The buddy screen allows you to categorize you buddies, see more info, edit, add notes, and more. Buddies currently logged in are marked with a green icon, and you can see up to 6 tables/tournaments where your buddies are playing. You have the ability to create several groups to categorize your buddies, because the truth is, some of these players may be your friends, but others could be players to target or players to avoid.
One of the advantages of playing at William Hill Poker is the integrated casino. The “Casino Games” tab instantly takes you to your favorite casino games, all within William Hill Poker, so you don’t have to create another account or make a separate deposit for casino chips.
Because William Hill hosts players from around the globe, the poker room supports multiple currencies and provides multi-currency poker tables where you can play on GBP, EURO and USD tables. This removes the need for currency exchanges before taking a seat at a table, you can just play on tables that use the same currency as your deposit currency.
Another cool feature is the hand history replay tool. The replay tool can be used for both ring games and tournaments, and allows you to control the replaying with fast forward, pause, and rewind buttons.
Some poker players simply can’t get enough gamble, so William Hill Poker offers the option to bet on the cards dealt during poker hands while you’re playing poker! The new Backbet game, completely integrated into the poker download, allows players to place prop bets such as a suited flop, or all red flop, etc. You may lose the poker hand but you can still make a profit on the hand with BackBet! Check out the screenshot below.
For multi-tablers, a nice feature of the William Hill Poker client is the use of the function keys. The Fn keys, F1-F5, provide short cuts for your poker actions so you don’t need to use the mouse. Simplifying and speeding up the actions will help you play more tables at once, so you can make more money!
Other improvements include more search filters for finding the exact table, tournament, or SnG that you’re interested in, auto re-buy options in tournaments, auto-reconnect, and bounty tournaments.
William Hill Poker is a member of the iPoker network of online poker rooms, which is considered the third most popular poker room by most sources. William Hill does not allow USA residents but there is a lot of UK and European traffic so locating your preferred game and stakes should not be a concern in the low to mid stakes games. However, high stakes games are pretty scarce.
During peak times, you can expect to see about 17,000 players online.
