William Hill built its name as a bookmaker after founding in the UK in 1934, when gambling was still illegal in Britain. In those days you could place a bet with the man himself, William Hill, via post or the telephone! It was 1961 before betting shops were legal in the UK, allowing William Hill and others to just grow from there. The bookmaker has built itself into the backbone of British society since then and may be referred to as Will Hill, especially when searching for its online casino.
