William Hill Sportsbook Review and Welcome Bonus

West Virginia was one of the states to quickly get sports betting legalized after PASPA was overturned in 2018. Among those sportsbooks landing in the Mountaineer State was William Hill, the London-based bookmaker that is staking its claim across the US as well.

Located near the border of Pennsylvania, and just an hour away from Pittsburgh, William Hill partnered with Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack & Resort.

With some time in the state of West Virginia, let’s examine how William Hill WV is stacking up.

Welcome Bonus Codes & Promotional Offers

While the monetary value may not be exorbitant, the welcome offer at William Hill WV is a nice, easy-to-understand offer that is great for new players.

Players will be able to reap the benefits of a two-part welcome offer.

First, simply for signing up, players will receive a $10 credit when they sign up using the promo code “WH150”.

Second, players will receive a 100 percent match up to $150 on their first deposit. However, players must wager the amount deposited in addition to the bonus within 21 days to withdraw the funds. So, if a player deposits $150, they have 21 days to wager $300 to then be able to withdraw winnings that stem from that $300.

Outside of the welcome offer there are not any other promotions that are in place for an extended period of time. However, William Hill WV will add promotions here and there for upcoming games.
