Updated in August 2019, The operator have just added a few handy features to this already good Sportsbook app.
So whats new on the platform? Well there is quite a bit under the hood improvements. The main focus has been adding in more props and more In Game wagering options. Its the one thing NJ bettors were crying out for. There is an increase of around 50% more options now. The design has also had a bit of an update making it a bit easier to navigate around. They are also looking to add new withdrawal options too, including PayPal and ACH, so watch this space!
William Hill Sportsbook mobile
In this day and age, everyone needs a mobile site, not just an online sportsbook. William Hill were one of the pioneers of online betting and have both a mobile site and downloadable apps for the Android & iPhone/iPad (iOS) platform. For all Windows mobile and Blackberry users, or even the casual bettor who doesn’t want an app, you can just use the mobile site at https://nj.us.williamhill.com You will see a responsive design that is able to work on any cell or tablet screen, big or small. The site works exactly the same as it’s app counterparts so you can still get your sports betting fix no mater your device.
All platforms allow you to bet on loads of sports, these are: Baseball, Basketball, Fighting, Football, Golf, Hockey, Rugby, Soccer and Tennis. More sports are due to be added to the line up. Over in Europe, William Hill cover nearly every sport going and we expect to see this transition to the NJ app too. As one of the largest sportsbook and gambling companies in the world, you are in safe hands when using the mobile app. With one of the most recognized names in online gambling, they already had a head start on the competition.
There are several bet types available to punters looking to have a wager on the app. These include Parlays, Proposition or prop bets, Teasers and Round robins. Yes you will find other NJ books offering a wider choice of both sports and bet types, but they few that William Hill do support, they do them very well. Think of quality, not quantity.
Registration and getting your playing/bettor account is real easy to do. We times it at less than 4 minutes to get through the process. Details you will need are your name, address, d.o.b, email, cell number and your social security number too. Anyone in the US can get the app and joining, but you are required to be inside state borders to physically place your wagers.
You can join William Hill and claim a new customer welcome bonus. Now this isn’t the most generous on the market for a New Jersey sportsbook, but it is better to have one than none at all. You can get a $50 matched bet when you deposit and bet $50. Use our exclusive Promo Code – GUSA50 when you join to claim the bonus, just make sure you complete the sign up at https://nj.us.williamhill.com Registration is very quick and you don’t have to live in NJ to register, but you have to be in the state to place your wagers.
In terms of other promos available, you can find these on the dedicated tab on the app, but the picks for us are:
Big Odds Boss: Chance to win an extra $1,000 cash bonus if you hit the Parlay with the biggest odds during a set period
$2 Dingers: Bet 25 bucks or more on Baseball money lines each Friday through 8/10 and get $2 bonus for every run by the winning team if you money line bet wins
There is no VIP or rewards program with the book yet (July 2019)
Looking at the design of the app, it is very simple and features a nice clear interface. Colors work well and it probably one of the more aesthetically pleasing gambling app designs. There are no bells, whistles or flashy banners to distract you from what you are trying to do; place a bet and get it on quickly. The apps layout means placing a bet can be done in a speedy manor, its so easy to navigate. There is a main menu on the left where you can find Home, InPlay, A-Z Sports, Promotions, Settings and support options. There is a further, smaller menu available on the bottom of the screen where you will find another A-Z, Betslip and a search facility. It’s easy to register on the app and you need to do this before placing any wagers. Log in to your account and you can see all your betting history as well as update your personal details.
If you have not placed any bets online before, it may take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the set up but the app itself is very easy to use. The setup and design is identical on the Android and iPhone version of the William Hill Sportsbook New Jersey app. To add any options to your betslip, just tap the odds box and the selection will be added. Open up the betslip, add your stake and the winning amount will change depending on how much you want to bet. Tap on Place Bet and your wager is now on. You can keep track of all your unsettled bets in your account.
Cash Out is another vital tool for any serious bettor. You can end your bet early if you don’t think it will come in. The amount you can settle for will be less than if the bet runs its course. As well as normal Cash Out, William Hill also have partial Cash Out. This allows you to cash out a portion of your bet, although, the remaining balance will remain in play.
Use the app and you will be amazed at how quick it is. In our testing, it is probably the quickest out of any NJ sports betting app on the market. The app is really slimmed down compared to it’s competitors which will help it be this fast.
There is no live streaming or casino on the app yet, but we expect to see these as features hopefully added in the near future. There is also no visuals of games either which is a bit disappointing. There is a handy Sports Rules and a Betting 101 area accessible on the app which is a great place for new bettors to start. In here you can read all about the rules of games, what terms mean, how to place a bet, what the different options are and loads of helpful hints, tips and hacks. A good place to start for anyone looking to get in to wagering on a NJ gambling app.
What could be improved on the app?
Whilst we have no qualms with the app itself, there are a few overall issues we would like to change. The amount of sports offered by an international bookmaker is very low in comparison to some of the competitors. We really hope this changes as the William Hill brand becomes more popular here in the US. The welcome bonus is not that great when compared to other new player bonuses out there. The banking options, are well, pretty terrible. This is one area that needs looking at quick time. There is no quick login methods yet with either a pin or face recognition, again this is something we are likely to see in the future.
One area that William Hill really excel is the customer support. Available 24/7 you can call, email or do a live chat. As a regulated and licensed bookie, they have been vetted and approved by the New Jersey’s Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) so you know it is a safe environment to place your wagers. After all, it is their role to protect the public interest by maintaining a legitimate and viable casino gaming industry. They look out for players by only licensing good operators.
There are several ways to deposit with William Hill online, these include:
- Credit/Debit card
- Prepaid William Hill card
- Cash at a William Hill location in NJ (Monmouth Park or Ocean Resort AC)
To withdraw, you can either take cash at a William Hill location in the state or return it to a prepaid card, aptly called the William Hill card. There is currently no option to get money returned directly to a bank account, which is not ideal.
