Available deposit and withdrawal methods, security and licensing

William Hill uses 128-bit Secure Socket Layer digital encryption technology to protect all financial transactions; the same technology used by major banks and their online systems. The most popular methods to fund your William Hill account, and withdraw money from the account include the following:

  • Visa and MasterCard credit and debit cards
  • PayPal
  • Skrill (Moneybookers)
  • BPAY
  • Direct wire transfers from your online banking system
  • POLi
  • MasterPass

Aside from direct wire transfers and BPAY, all other methods process deposits instantly, so you have access to your cash and the ability to bet immediately after an approved deposit. Withdrawals can take anywhere between 24 and 72 hours, largely depending on your bank. First time depositors using a card to fund their accounts may need to verify their cards by scanning through a copy with the middle numbers blacked out (for security purposes).

First time withdrawers (and anyone who has held an account for 90 days), will need to provide some proof of identity to verify they are in fact the account holder, in accordance with the high security standards employed by reputable bookmakers. ID documents to verify your account include a copy of your driver’s license, passport or utility bill (for example, an electric, telephone, gas or water statement which displays your current address).

The William Hill headquarters are in Wood Green and Leeds (both in London), and the company is licensed to operate in multiple jurisdictions around the world, including Australia, the Americas, New Zealand and Europe. You can find out more about William Hill in the About Us section on its homepage.
