In my last post where I introduced you to EZ eSports Betting and why it is so popular I briefly mentioned William Hill. To be totally honest, after all my research it wasn’t my first choice. I originally decided to go with William Hill because they offered such a diverse range of online betting options. Unfortunately their online AFL sports betting option was not open to Aussies. And I really wanted to bet on a couple of games last week.Namely the Showdown, Port Adelaide vs Adelaide and Western Bulldogs vs North Melbourne.
Well, that wasn’t going to happen with William Hill and so I went for my second choice. Being an Aussie and all it probably should have been my first choice but what can I say but I was blinded by all the glitter and finery of William Hill. As it turns out it probably should have been my first choice!
How cool is that. Apart from William Hill being Australia’s biggest, and possibly best, bookmaker you can place your bets online using PayPal! I’m sure that will make a lot of eBayers happy, what with PayPal being an absolute necessity for having an eBay account. For those of you who don’t have a PayPal account they’ll also accept your credit card, debit card, BPAY, Moneybookers, Skrill or POLi. Strange they don’t accept Neteller and I’ve never heard of POLi. I must look into that.
I would be really interested to know if being able to place a sports bet using PayPal would be something that would interest you. You can let me know either way by leaving a comment below.
I don’t know about you but I love my Apps. They make doing things online so, so much easier. The first thing I did after joining was to check my iPhone 5S App store. I searched for William Hill and there she was! 🙂 A quick install later and I fired her right up. Just as I expected from a good app, once I logged in I was easily able to work out how to bet on my selected AFL footy games.
So, I deposit thirty bucks into my account and placed a couple of bets. Like you can see from my screenshot of my iPhone 5S smartphone, my poor Crows lost agains the Power but The Kangaroos won against the Western Bulldogs. Even though I’m down $6.70 I enjoyed those games a whole lot more than I normally do. A shame the all that egging on I gave the Crows didn’t work though, because winning would’ve been so much better.
In case you’re wondering how I did that screenshot on the iPhone it was really quite simple. To do a screen capture on the iPhone all you need to do is to push the button on the top right of the iPhone and the round one on the bottom at the same time. It’s as simple as that.
William Hill Special Offers
Even though I didn’t know at the time, because that would have factored favourably into whether or not I would pick them, William Hill offer their members special deals. Have you ever bet on a team and lost your cash all because of a few lousy points? Well this week William Hill is offering the following deal.
The AFL bounces into action this weekend and William Hillt has an 18 point money back special on all round 3 AFL games. Back a team in the head-to-head market and if your team loses by 18 points or less, you’ll get your money back. Surely there’s no better bet than that!”
I have to agree, that is a pretty sweet deal.
William Hill offers a hell of a lot more than just being able to bet on the AFL too. So much more that I think I’ll break it down into several smaller posts.
If you have any questions at all feel free to leave a comment. I would really like to hear from any of you who have an Android type smartphone. Does William Hill have an app for you guys?
Oh, just so you know, the fact that Shane Warne promotes William Hill didn’t factor at all when it came to choosing William Hill
