Disclaimer: William Hill Sportsbook in not yet live in Arizona. This review is speculative based on its offering in other states and will be updated when it launches here.
William Hill is a top-tier sportsbook and a great choice if you are an Arizona sports bettor who plans on wagering using a smartphone, computer or tablet. New customers will be eligible for a risk-free bet for up to $500.
This page will cover the following details about William Hill in Arizona:
With all that and more to go over, let’s begin with the welcome bonus so you can start betting at William Hill right away.
As a new William Hill Sportsbook bettor you will receive a risk-free bet for up to $500 when you use the code LEGALRF when creating your account. You’ll enter the promo code on the second page of the sign-up form.
|Online Sportsbook||William Hill Sportsbook Arizona|
|William Hill AZ Promo Code||LEGALRF|
|Risk Free First Bet||Max of $500|
|Online Since||2021 in Arizona|
|Last Updated||July 2021|
After creating an account and entering the bonus code, you’ll make a deposit and place your first bet, which will be risk-free. If that bet wins, then the risk-free offer disappears. You’ll receive your winnings exactly as you normally would and nothing changes. If that first bet loses, however, William Hill will provide a free bet credit in the amount of your losing bet.
You must use the free bet credit within one week or it will expire. You also should know that you will not get the value of the free bet itself back if you win. Instead, you’ll only get your winnings from the bet.
For example, let’s say you place a $250 bet and it loses. You then get a $250 free bet. If you use that on a bet with +300 odds and win, you would get your $750 in winnings, but the $250 free bet value essentially disappears at that point.
Yes, William Hill’s risk-free welcome bonus is a quality offer. You’ll find similar offers at other Arizona sportsbooks, but some of them place restrictions on the types of wagers you can place and the odds allowed, while William Hill does not.
Yes, William Hill is a trustworthy sports betting company. It operates sportsbooks in at least 10 other states and in a number of countries outside the US, too. Furthermore, to launch in Arizona, it will have received a license from the Arizona Department of Gaming, which will also help provide a resolution if you encounter any problems.
Here are the basic rules you should know about before betting with William Hill or any licensed sportsbook in Arizona.
To sign up with William Hill, follow the link from this page to the sportsbook site. Then choose “Play Now” and enter the LEGALRF promo code when prompted. Then you’ll need to enter the following sign-up details:
You also must create a password, verify that you are 21 or older and confirm that the information you supplied is accurate. Once that’s complete, you’ll be ready to deposit and start betting.
William Hill’s app is free for Android and iOS devices. Downloading it is easy and will take a couple of minutes to complete, at most. To start with, head to William Hill’s app page on a mobile browser. Once there, select “Download Android” or “Download iOS” depending on your device. Follow what the site says from there to finish downloading and installing the app.
William Hill’s promotions page appears in different locations on the app and website. On the app, you’ll choose “Promos” at the bottom of the screen. On the webpage, you’ll choose “Promotions” at the top of the screen.
As for what you’ll find, William Hill offers an array of promotions and updates them frequently. Here are some options worth checking out if you see them:
If you’ve checked out the promotions pages at other Arizona sportsbooks, you might be surprised by how small the offerings appear at William Hill. Don’t be. While other books tend to have many standing offers, William Hill instead comes up with new bonuses almost every day. That does mean that you’ll need to watch your email and/or check the promos page for any new deals.
William Hill has a variety of strengths. Here are three of its top features to consider if you’re looking for an Arizona sportsbook.
Here are some of the things that are lacking at William Hill. We recommend checking to see if any of these are deal-breakers before signing up.
William Hill offers the standard array of bets at major US sportsbooks: point spreads, moneylines, over/unders, futures and prop bets, along with parlays, teasers and round robins. Here’s an example of how it displays lines/odds, followed by explanations for how the various bets work.
|Arizona Cardinals||+2.5 (-110)||+115||Over 49.5 (-110)|
|San Francisco 49ers||-2.5 (-110)||-135||Under 49.5 (-110)|
Point spreads aim to even the betting field. When you place a spread wager, your focus is on the margin of victory. In our example, the Cardinals are 2.5-point underdogs (as indicated by the plus sign). They will cover the spread if they lose by two points or fewer or by winning the game straight up. For the favored 49ers to cover, they must win by three points or more.
The odds, appearing in parentheses, tell you how much money you’ll win with a correct bet. The -110 figure means a $110 bet will pay out $100.
The moneyline represents the odds for each team to win. Since the Cardinals are slight underdogs, you’ll win more money betting on them. Odds of +115 mean a $100 bet would result in a $115 profit. And a -135 moneyline for the favorite means a $135 bet would result in a $100 profit.
Totals and over/unders are the same thing. You’re betting on how many combined points both teams will score. All you have to do is bet whether the actual total will be over or under the total that the sportsbook has listed.
If you bet $10 on the over and the final score was 30-28, for a total of 58, then you would win $9.09. Just because the odds are based on $100 bets, that’s not how much you have to wager. Also, if you’re ever unsure of how the odds work, you can add it to your bet slip, input a wager amount and you’ll see what you would win.
Proposition bets, commonly referred to as prop bets, are wagers on specific events in a game. Here’s a look at some common NFL prop bets:
If you are new to sports betting, it might be an eye-opener how many prop bets are available at William Hill. It’s worth scrolling through all your options before placing any bets.
Multi-betting is when you join two or more bets together to get improved odds. Parlays and teasers are multi-bets where you have to get all your wagers correct to win. Parlays can be for any bet across different sports. Teasers are just for spread bets for basketball and football games, and you can shift the line in your favor for each of your selections.
You also can create round robins at William Hill. These bets allow you to make multiple picks, but you can miss one and still win some money.
If you click on futures bets at William Hill, you’ll find wagers on results that won’t be determined until the regular season or postseason concludes. The most common futures are for teams to win the overall title. William Hill also has bets for conference and division winners. On the player side of things, you can wager on who will be named MVP or win other awards.
Live betting follows all the same rules we have already discussed. The difference is now you’re betting in real time on games that are taking place.
For pregame betting, odds and lines usually move very slowly unless there’s a trade or injury involving a star player. But with live betting, odds/lines can change drastically due to what’s happening in the game.
You’ll also have some new betting options. For instance, depending on the league, you may be able to wager on what’s going to happen on the next play or pitch. Live betting is another area where you might want to get a feel for how it works before placing your first bet.
Yes, without a doubt you can wager on the Phoenix Suns and all other NBA contests, as well. While all the betting options we’ve previously discussed are available for betting on the Suns, William Hill also has some basketball-specific wagers:

William Hill compares very well to the other sportsbooks in the Grand Canyon State. Its odds are good, and the betting markets are top of the line.
William Hill’s website and app also are among the best you will find. One of the biggest differences between William Hill and other oddsmakers is the type of promos each has to offer. William Hill’s tend to be pricier to enter, but can result in bigger paydays.
