William Hill Sportsbook to Become Legal in NY in 2022?

William Hill already runs a land-based sportsbook operation in New York State. However, at the moment, the online version of the sportsbook is not available in the Empire State. The good news is that it is very likely things will change once New York officials expand their gaming laws.

Given that the process is long and complicated, William Hill online sportsbook will probably launch sometime next year. Until then, New York bettors can use the services of the William Hill sportsbook at Turning Stone Resort Casino.

Partnership with Turning Stone Resort Casino

William Hill is one of the world’s oldest still-running sportsbook businesses. Its journey started almost 90 years ago in the UK, from where it’s spread its business to many places around the globe. Since recently, William Hill is also available in some parts of the United States, including New York.

Verona, a small town in Upstate New York, is where sports bettors should go if they want to place bets with William Hill sportsbook. That’s where Turning Stone Resort Casino is located, on which premises this sportsbook runs its retail operation.

The casino is owned by Oneida Indian Nation (OIN), who launched it back in the early 1990s. Since then, the tribe’s ambitions have grown significantly, as evident from the fact that they’ve teamed up with one of the world’s most successful betting companies.

Their partnership will reach another level once the two start working on the William Hill online sportsbook.

When Will William Hill Online Sportsbook Launch in NY?

When New York Government makes online sports betting legal in the state, operators will get to apply for a license. As there’s probably going to be only a limited number of slots available, only the best operators are going to receive the license. That’s one of the main reasons why we expect William Hill to get involved.

Another reason why William Hill is likely to apply for a NY online license is that it already has a successful partnership with Turning Stone, which is going to be one of the license requirements.

We are confident that William Hill will be among the first online sportsbooks to launch in New York State. That’s something we expect to happen in early 2022.

William Hill Welcome Bonus

It’s almost certain that New Yorkers will get some attractive bonuses from the William Hill online sportsbook. The first bonus they’ll be able to claim should be a 100% welcome bonus on their first deposit.

William Hill will probably set the maximum bonus amount to $500, which is currently the case in other states where this online sportsbook is available.

We expect to see many other bonuses available, including reload bonuses, acca boosters, and maybe even some free bets. On top of everything, we wouldn’t be surprised if William Hill decided to give away some special offers only for mobile users.

William Hill Mobile App

The website of William Hill should work well on a wide range of devices, including smartphones and tablets. To use it, you just need an internet connection. Still, mobile users who’d like to take their experience to the next level will be able to use the William Hill app.

The app will be available in two versions – one for iOS and one for Android users. In both cases, the app runs very smoothly, with zero lags and bugs.

Sports Markets

You can be sure that events from all of the Big Four sports competitions (MLB, NBA, NFL, and NHL) will be in the William Hill sportsbook offer. The sportsbook will also cover many other sports popular in the United States, including MMA, tennis, soccer, etc.

Apart from offering a wide selection of sports events, William Hill will also have a large offer of betting markets. We expect to see betting options like money line, spread, and totals available for every single event.

Also, for popular events, William Hill will probably go beyond the most popular wager types. What we’re talking about are bets like the following:

  • Winning Margin
  • Player Points
  • Correct Score
  • Half-Time/Full-Time Result
  • Will There be Overtime?

Most of the events available in the pre-game betting offer will probably be available in the InPlay section as well.

Finally, William Hill NY will also offer its players a chance to bet on the so-called Futures, that is, bets whose outcome will not be known months (or even years) in advance, e.g., 2022 NBA Championship Winner.

Deposits & Withdrawals

It’s very likely that William Hill is going to let its NY-based players choose from a long list of banking options. To make deposits/withdrawals, New Yorkers will probably be able to use some of the following methods:

  • Visa
  • Mastercard
  • Diners
  • Neteller
  • PaySafeCard

We’re almost certain that the sportsbook isn’t going to charge any fees on deposits, while withdrawals might come with a small commission.

Customer Support

The William Hill NY website/app will have a live chat feature, which players can use to contact the customer support team. Alternatively, they will be able to get ahold of them via email or telephone.

It’s possible that William Hill is going to have a special toll-free number for bettors based in New York. If not, they will always be able to call the general support number available for all American customers. The number in question is (+1) 855 754 1200.

William Hill Pros & Cons

The fact that William Hill has been around for 85+ years means that this company has been doing its business the right way. Of course, same as any other sportsbook, this one too has its own pros and cons.
