Registering at William Hill
William Hill brings a lot of great features to the betting industry in whichever state it launches in. The brand William Hill sportsbook is international, but has been operating in Nevada since 2012. So, the British-based company certainly has experience in the US sports betting industry.
William Hill also has the most locations in Nevada, and opened its sportsbook in New Jersey at the Monmouth Park Racetrack in June of 2018. It was there that William Hill accepted the first legal sports bets in the state.
It has also recently made deals to open up its sportsbook at the New Jersey Devils’ Prudential Center in Newark. William Hill is a very well made sportsbook with a wide variety of different sports and lines to bet on, as well as consistently having good bonuses and promotions available.
1) Step One: Sportsbook Registration
To get started betting at William Hill, you will first need to create an account. This can be done by going to the site and clicking on the ‘Register’ button in the top right corner of the screen. Once you click on this button, you will begin the registration process.
When you are filling out the registration form, it is important that you enter all information accurately and correctly. William Hill will need to verify your information in accordance with state and federal rules and regulations. Failure to register correct information could result in future disputes or even account suspension or deactivation.
William Hill Registration
The process of creating an account at William Hill is quite straightforward, and is similar to registrations on other sportsbooks. However, instead of three sections to fill out, there are only two. The registration process will coincide with state and federal laws in relation to sports betting and gambling.
After filling out the registration form William Hill will verify your information and then approve the account. You will be notified either by email where you will need to complete the process with a confirmation.
The main verification points in the registration:
These three things will be the main points in the process of creating an account at William Hill. This is due to the laws and rules that relate to them. For identification and verification purposes William Hill will ask for the last four digits of your social security number.
Sportsbooks will have different rules for how betting is conducted on their sites, however all sports betting sites in New Jersey will also have to adhere to federal and state gambling laws. Therefore, these will be some key things to know before signing up at any sportsbook.
2) Step Two: Complete Registration - William Hill and New Jersey Terms and Conditions
The first step begins with simple account information. You will need to provide your full name, email address, date of birth and a cell phone number.
In New Jersey, it is illegal for persons under the age of 21 to take part in gambling. Thus, your date of birth is very important and should be written correctly. William Hill will verify this information before account registration can be completed.
The second and final section before confirmation requires the bulk of information. You will first need to select two security questions and answers to help secure your account. The last four digits of your social security number are also necessary, as this will be used to help verify your information.
(However, you will be able to log in and use the sportsbook if you are visiting a legal state. You just need to be located within the state’s borders to bet)
To help abide by these laws, William Hill uses two methods of verification:
Address (verified by SSN)
Geographic location information
You will need to enter your address in this section. This will later be verified by your social security number and possibly with additional documents if William Hill deems it necessary.
In the terms and conditions that you will need to agree to, there is a section that will talk about the geolocation services it uses and how to enable them.
- It will be stated in the terms and conditions that you consent to the use of geolocation technologies. This should be known that since this is in accordance with federal and state laws, that this will need to be done on all sportsbooks that offer mobile betting and is quite normal. William Hill will check your location when you log in to your account, and periodically throughout playing.
The box after that will require you to confirm that you are not a key employee or casino employee. If this is you it is likely you already know that you are prohibited from gambling in some form or another. Agreeing that you are 21 years of age or older is the next box you will need to check.
Key employees can include players, coaches, owners, referees, match handlers and more. However, there is a possibility that you hold one of these positions and are still permitted to bet. If this is the case, you will need to fill out the form provided in the agreement.
3) Step Three: Deposit into your Account
Once your account has been confirmed you can begin to start betting only after making a deposit. You can either deposit on the site or go to any physical location that features a William Hill sportsbook.
The methods available for depositing depend on the sportsbook, so you will have different options available for each. However, you are able to use many of the widespread payment methods like credit and debit cards on most sports betting sites.

William Hill PrePaid Card
Deposit at Retail Locations
You can apply for the prepaid card by going to William Hill’s site and clicking on the deposit funds option. Once you have completed the application and made an initial deposit, William Hill will mail the card to your home.
William Hill also differs from many other sportsbooks in that it has multiple physical locations throughout each state. You can make a cash deposit at any of these locations which are situated in Atlantic City, Las Vegas, Biloxi and Monmouth.
William Hill has also opened its sportsbook at the Prudential Center in Newark, which will likely also feature this option in the future. The wait time for deposits depends on the method, though depositing cash on location or using the William Hill PrePaid Cards will almost certainly be your quickest options.
