The latest VIP scheme at William Hill offers all players VIP cash back (the equivalent to rake back) which increases depending on how many points you accumulate. For example, every 3750 WH Points you earn wins you $2.50 in cash back, up to $250,000 in cash-back for every 75.5 million WH Points earned.
Range of Games and Tournaments
William Hill runs poker tables in a number of formats and table stakes. You can play cash games starting from $0.01/$0.02 up to $500/$1000 in blinds. William Hill limits the amount that you can buy into cash games with 20 – 100 in BBs. For example, in order to play in a $0.10/0.25 cash game you’ll need to buy in with a minimum of $2. In order to sit down at a cash game you can go the cash game lobby. Here you can choose your table stakes, game type (no limit, pot limit, Omaha, 7 card stud) and see stats on the table. Click on a game and then find an empty seat in order to play.
You can find a huge choice of SNGs too, including regular sit n goes (100 chip stack), deep stack (200 stack), turbo games (4 minute blind levels), super turbo (3 minute blind levels), jackpot sit n gos and more. Starting from a minimum of $1 buy-in, you can also play heads up, double up and triple up sit n gos. If you’ve never played these types of games before than I strongly recommend them.
Tournament players can find a huge selection of multi-table tournaments in the tournament lobby, ranging from daily $100 and weekly $5,000 VIP freerolls, up to the $50K, $100K, $250K and $1 Million Guaranteed Tournaments. You can also play in satellites to the 2010 Irish Open and WSOP here along with freezeouts, heads up, $50k re-buys and more.
