William Hill is one of the oldest names in the gambling industry; this does not only cover online gambling as William Hill has been offering its shop-based gambling service for more than seven decades across the British Island. As for online gambling, it has more than 10 years of experience. William Hill was known for its sports betting shops, because that is how it started and with the emerge of online gambling, it quickly started offering its players sports betting odds as well as casino games online.
William Hill Casino was founded back in 1998 and it started as a result of a collaboration between William Hill and Playtech where Playtech owned a 29 % share of WHO (William Hill Online). Recently, William Hill used the buyout option and bought out the 29% share that belonged to Playtech to seek full control over the venue. The software runs on a Playtech platform and most of the games are powered by Playtech but ever since William Hill bought it out, it has been publishing games from other gaming developers.
The online casino is highly popular amongst Canadian players because it has everything an online player might be looking for. This includes a varied set of casino games that include different kinds of gambling games, a 24/7 customer support, multiple language and banking options, top notch gaming platform and more than 70 years of experience.
