William Hill Cricket Betting

William Hill is one of the UK’s leading high street bookmakers and the first to launch an online site in 1998. The site was extensively revamped in 2008, and its headquarters moved to Gibraltar. It is licensed and regulated by the Gibraltar Regulatory Authority.

The site is fully translated into 10 languages, including Chinese, French and German, and partially translated into an additional 13 languages.

Betting On Cricket at William Hill

Cricket is easily accessed from the main Sports page via a link at the top of the page. This leads to the dedicated cricket page, where current matches are displayed. A short summary of the match and details of two or three of the main markets are listed. Clicking on the ‘View All’ tab takes you to the complete list of markets for that match.

Below this list of current and future matches is a full list of all cricket events and competitions on which betting is currently available, such as the Country Championship, the 2012 Twenty20 World Cup and so on. Next to each event is a list of the various types of markets that are possible for that event (e.g., Outrights, Top Team Batsman, Specials and so on). Clicking on the type of bet you are interested in opens a new page showing the full details of any bets associated with that group – this may be one bet only, or a range of bets.

The breakdown of matches, tournaments and types of bet available is simple and clear, and is a straightforward process to navigate your way to where you want to go.

Once odds are selected for a specific market the bet will appear in the virtual betting slip to the right of the screen. Select more than one market, and any combination bets available (doubles, trebles etc) will be listed at the bottom of the slip. The slip can be easily cleared of bets, or the bet can be confirmed once logged into your account.

There is an extensive range of markets available at William Hill, including standard outright markets, and the usual range of batting, bowling and team prop bets (top scorer, total sixes, highest partnership and so on.) High profile matches will also have a range of specials, such as whether a specific named batsman will score a six, get a duck, score a century, be run out and so on.

Live betting markets are also reasonably extensive, including standard live bets such as partnership runs and total score, as well as on match events such as the success of the next review or method of next dismissal.
