While it’s not live yet, it won’t be long before Tennessee sports bettors can get action at William Hill, one of the foremost names in the sports betting industry. We can’t yet speak to what features and promotional offers we’ll see in the Volunteer State from William Hill, but their consistent offerings in other states are surely an indication, meaning bettors should be excited for the bookmaker to enter the Tennessee market.
Keep reading to find out what mobile sportsbook users can expect once William Hill goes live.
William Hill TN Bonus Offer
|William Hill Sportsbook TN Promo Code||Not live yet|
William Hill will be entering the market in Tennessee a little bit after BetMGM, FanDuel, and DraftKings, so they’ll be even more incentivized to offer an enticing sportsbook sign-up bonus to new players. It’s unclear exactly what that will look like, but if William Hill mirrors their approach from other states, we should see something like this in Tennessee:
Get up to a $500 free bet on first deposit
The free bet (likely!) will be awarded based on the qualifying deposit amount tiers, depending on the size of your initial deposit. You must make the deposit within seven (7) days of registering your account:
- Initial deposit of $50-$99 = $100 free bet
- Initial deposit of $100-$249.99 = $250 free bet
- Initial deposit of $250-$500 = $500 free bet
Based on these terms, a $250 deposit would give Tennessee players the best “bang for the buck,” initially.
Also note that you must use the free bet within the first seven days of being awarded, or it will expire.
Welcome Offer Terms and Conditions
Fortunately for Tennesseans, the William Hill offer in TN is likely to be straightforward. The free bet is awarded based on your deposit amount, and while you do have to utilize that free bet within seven days, any winnings you derive from the free bet come with no rollover or wager requirements. Meaning, if you get a $250 free bet, and win $200 with it, you aren’t obligated to then put that $200 into play in order to be able to withdraw it right away, should you desire.
You may still be required to play through your initial deposit in order to withdraw winnings. This is fairly standard.
This promotion cannot be combined with any other welcome offers, which is industry standard. We should also expect to see the following restrictions:
- Players must be 21 or older to wager.
- Players must be located within Tennessee state lines in order to place any wagers.
- A promo code may be required, but we’ll fill you in on those details when they arrive.
Always read the terms and conditions for any promotion you opt into. Certain promotions may exclude you from a more lucrative offer, and most bonuses/promotions come with an expiration date. While bonuses and promotions are a great way for players to receive some added value, it’s always worth looking into the fine print so you know exactly what you’re getting.
Once things are live in the Volunteer State, those in Tennessee will be able to create an account on William Hill. It’s a very simple process, and we’ll make it even easier by providing links to the William Hill Tennessee page here before launch.
Who Can Bet In Tennessee?
Tennessee is the first state with legal sports wagering that will handle bets online exclusively. In every other legal state, there are some brick-and-mortar sportsbook options — which William Hill does exceptionally well — so that’s a small downside. But, go find a good sports bar instead.
The online registration process is convenient, with some requirements you probably expect: players must be at least 21 years old and must be within Tennessee state lines in order to make a bet. You can actually register for an account outside the state, however you must be located within the state — which must be verified via geolocation software — in order to place the bet. Assuming you fit the bill on both, you’ll be free to fire away on William Hill.
What Information Is Required?
Before players will be able to wager, they’ll have to provide some basic information for the sake of identification. Here’s what you’ll need to provide:
- Phone Number
- Date of birth
- Last four digits of your Social Security Number
While the thought of forking over any personal information to a sportsbook might concern some people, it’s simply for the sake of identifying that you are who you say you are, and preventing identity theft. It’s a level of security that is needed for legal sportsbooks to take your bets. The details you disclose are not shared.
Deposits and Withdrawals at William Hill
One of the beauties of legal sports betting is the being able to move your money around quickly, safely, and securely. The deposit and withdrawal options available at William Hill are robust and will give players the ability to use the most efficient payment methods on the web. Deposit and withdrawal methods include:
- PayPal – Likely the quickest method of depositing/withdrawing, PayPal will get your funds to the sportsbook instantly and leads to fast withdrawals.
- Online banking – Players can link their bank accounts to make quick deposits/withdrawals online.
- eCheck/ACH – This is basically just a paper check that you don’t actually have to hand to another human. Along with some banking information, you can send the check electronically and deposit instantly.
- Wire Transfers – Funds can be wired electronically to William Hill.
- PayNearMe – Despite not having a brick and mortar presence, Tennesseans can still deposit in person at a local 7-11, Family Dollar or CVS.
- Visa/Mastercard Debit or Credit Cards – But keep in mind many financial institutions will reject credit transactions associated with gambling.
That list could certainly grow when William Hill is online in Tennessee. It’s worth noting that while the above methods can be used to deposit, not all of them can be used to withdraw, so you may need access to two of the above in some instances.
Using PayPal or ACH is recommended as it is available for both deposit and withdrawal and tends to accomplish those in the smallest time frame. With most methods, deposits will be instantaneous but withdrawals may take a few days depending on which method you choose.
Players can always feel safe with their funds at William Hill. They have been an established and respected name in gaming going back decades, so Tennesseans should feel comfortable that their funds and information are secure.
How to Bet with William Hill
While there won’t be a physical location for William Hill in Tennessee, players in the state will have two online options to choose from when it comes to placing bets. William Hill features both a mobile app and a desktop option. All you’ll have to do is log on and verify your location before you get started.
William Hill Mobile App
When William Hill launches in Tennessee, they’ll unveil the mobile app to bettors in the state. Betting via the app makes it easy and convenient on the player – if you have access to your phone and an internet connection, you’ll be able to place wagers from anywhere within state lines. Once live, you can find the app in the iOS and Android app stores, and can also find a direct link from the William Hill website.
The app itself is very easy to navigate – you can simply scroll the page with your finger and tap a bet to quickly add it to your betslip. It’s also simple to change your bet type and bet amount. The layout is very easy on the eyes and makes it easy to scroll through different sports via the banner at the top of the page.
There’s no clutter the app is responsive to touch but not overly so, and all the markets available on the desktop version are also available on the app. The betslip can be easily minimized, selections removed, and if you get lost you can hit “home” at any time to start over.
In one word, it’s minimalist, which is a good thing. We don’t need flashy when betting.
If you’d prefer to bet from your computer, you can do that too! The desktop site is clean and crisp, similar in many ways to the mobile app. When you hit the homepage, you’ll see the featured bets of the day – whatever marquee sporting events are happening, like a Titans game or a big Vanderbilt matchup – and can quickly scroll through offerings by sport in addition to any live/in-play offerings available right then and there.
Whether they use the mobile app or desktop site, players in Tennessee will find the William Hill product to be reliable, easy to use and simple to navigate.
When you place a bet in the state of Tennessee, you’ll have the full backing of the Tennessee State Lottery Board, who will work to ensure your funds are safe and that proper security measures are being practiced. When you bet with William Hill, you are doing business with a gaming company that has been in the business since 1934 and has remained a premier name in the industry for decades. They were the first betting company to be awarded a secured environment accreditation, which recognizes that the operator is taking every necessary security measure.
William Hill also supports to responsible gaming and offers customers the ability to set limits on deposits, losses, and more. Self-exclusion is also an available tool if you or a friend needs it.

William Hill Sportsbook Rewards
New players in Tennessee will likely be invited to join William Hill’s VIP club where they will be met with exclusive promotional and bonus offers. Membership and an accrual of loyalty points will allow bettors access to an upgraded class of service by regularly using their product.
Players will also be able to accrue loyalty by betting or gaming at any of William Hill’s other locations around the country.
Even those that aren’t regularly using the William Hill services will still be able to take advantage of promotions. They are offered regularly for big sporting events, especially those that occur locally, so you’ll always want to keep an eye on the promotions page. There will almost always be some sort of offer available to Tennesseans.
Those that wager at William Hill will always be able to receive help directly if an issue of any kind arises. As seen in other states, we expect that they’ll offer email support, live chat and a telephone line to give customers an array of options to reach them.
They’ve been at this for awhile, so they’ve come across any issue you can imagine. Those in the Volunteer State should expect fast response times, and the live chat option can get your issue solved within minutes.
More on William Hill
William Hill was a monster in the U.K market for a long time before entering the U.S. market in Nevada back in 2012. The brand has already become Nevada’s leading mobile operator and has over 100 land-based sportsbooks in the state. It didn’t take long before they spread out, stepping into New Jersey and now a slew of new legal states to enter the legal gaming market.
William Hill now has partnerships with ESPN to provide betting odds and statistics across all platforms and has a similar deal with CBS Sports Digital as well. In 2020 it was also announced that Caesars Entertainment had agreed to acquire William Hill for $3.7 billion. As a result, William Hill will become the sportsbook in most/all Caesars-owned properties. Previously, casino operator Eldorado Resorts took over Caesars Entertainment Corp. and rebranded as Caesars Entertainment; Eldorado has a presence in many states with developed casino-hotel markets, so William Hill will be very much a national player.
A rich history in different parts of the globe should make those in Tennessee excited to wager at one of the top names in betting.
