William Hill Lotto Review


William Hill is one of the country's oldest and most established bookmakers. While it maintains a strong presence on the high street, it is also one of the leading online gambling providers, offering casino, bingo, poker and and now lottery alongside the sports betting that it made its name for.

How Does it Work?

As with other bookmakers, William Hill's lottery service involves betting on the outcome of the draw rather than buying tickets or syndicate places through a concierge service. Players choose between one and five numbers to bet on from their chosen game's pool of numbers, or alternatively you can use lucky dip.

They must then decide whether they want to include the bonus ball if there is one – including the bonus ball gives you a greater chance of winning, but will also shorten your odds. Matching just one number guarantees a prize, but the more numbers the player matches, the more they win.

Odds vary for each lottery game that William Hill offers – for example, the odds of matching three numbers in the 49s six-ball game are 626/1, compared to 1251/1 in the New York Lotto. The biggest prize that can be won is in the 49s six-ball game, where the odds of matching all five numbers are 160001/1 (curiously, William Hill Lotto adds a number one to its longer lottery odds).

Players must also specify which draw they are betting on, otherwise the next main draw will be selected by default. There is also the option to place the same bet(s) on multiple future draws, up to the next eight draws, which is useful for those lottery players who like to pick the same numbers every time.

What Lotteries are Offered?

William Hill Lotto offers quite a small range of lotteries compared to its competitors. Currently only the Irish Lotto, New York Lotto and 49s games are available. These are three of the most popular lottery games around, though, with each one taking place twice a week.

The Irish Lotto also offers additional draws alongside the main game, meaning that William Hill Lotto players still have plenty of chances to win.


New customers to William Hill Lotto get a free matched bet (up to a modest limit) when they sign up, while William Hill occasionally runs lottery bonuses whereby players can bet on all six numbers (excluding the bonus ball) for a £1 million jackpot prize.

William Hill Lotto offers virtually every payment method imaginable, including a wide range of e-wallet services like Neteller, PayPal, POLi, Instadebit and more. You can even make deposits and withdrawals at your local William Hill shop using the company's own CashDirect voucher system, which is handy for those who prefer the security and comfort of playing with good old cash.

The minimum deposit amount for all methods is £10 except for Western Union, bank transfer and cheque, which carry a £25 minimum deposit. Likewise, deposits are immediate for all methods other than those three.

For withdrawals, the list of different methods is not quite so extensive. Funds can be withdrawn by UK debit card, credit card, Entropay, CashDirect, Skrill, PayPal, Neteller, ClickandBuy, Instadebit, bank transfer and cheque. Minimum withdrawal is £5 with all methods other than CashDirect, for which it's £10, or bank transfer and cheque for which it's £25.

Withdrawals are instant with CashDirect but generally take one working day with e-wallet services and three to five days for the more traditional banking methods. Only two CashDirect withdrawals can be made per day and withdrawals over £500 may not be instantly accessible.

It is best to use the same withdrawal method every time as William Hill doesn't like you using multiple methods, and if you do its system may divide withdrawals among the different accounts. Some withdrawals may be subject to security and identification checks, which can delay the process.

How Do Prices Match up with Competitors?

William Hill Lotto, like its rival Coral Lotto, does not levy charges on any withdrawals or deposits, and does not charge commission on winnings. Unlike Betfred lotto, it does not place a limit on free bank transfers per month either.
