Bonus Money Payments

  1. Bonus Money is awarded to players as part of the first deposit bonus scheme or special promotions.
  2. Bonus Money is redeemed according to the amount of WHPoints accumulated by playing real money cash games or tournaments.
  3. The Bonus money is released in real cash chunks to players as they earn WHP's at ring games and tournaments. At ring games, WHP's are awarded to players for each hand in which they contribute money to the pot, as long as the hand is raked. WHP's are also awarded based on the fees paid by the player when buying-in to a tournament.
  4. The amount of cash chuck will be released to players real balance according to the number of WHP's needed to check your bonus money cash chunk amounts and required WHP's per chunk date please go to My Account -> Bonus money info section in the poker software .
  5. Players will continue to accumulate Points as they play, and further releases of cash chunks will be made automatically.
  6. Bonus money will always have an expiration date, to check your bonus expiry date please go to My Account -> Bonus money info section in the poker software.
  7. Active Bonus Money can be also viewed in the progress bar at the bottom middle section of the William Hill Poker lobby.
  8. If a player has more than one pending money bonus, then they will be redeemed in chronological order (the first bonus money issued will be the active one that is redeemed and so on).
  9. Club Points - the points you are awarded according to your Club Status - do not count towards Bonus Money redemption.


Instant Bonus (Cash bonus) Payments

  1. Instant Bonuses are awarded to a player's poker account as real cash. They are issued with conditions on wagering, cashier withdrawals and winnings.
  2. Instant Bonuses may have a deadline to wager (if stated); otherwise it may be cut from the balance.
  3. Instant bonuses are valid for 14 days from the date of issue unless otherwise stated in the promotional material. If during this period the player generates insufficient rake/fees, according to the promotion terms, the Instant Bonus will expire and will be removed from the player's account; (for example a player is required to generate $0.50 in rake/fees in the first 14 days, if this won't be fulfilled the bonus will be removed from the player's account).
  4. Before withdrawing a bonus, players must accumulate the same amount of rake/fees as the instant bonus awarded, unless otherwise stated in a promotion. Example: a $10 instant bonus was issued; $10 in rake/fee must be generated to withdraw the bonus funds.
  5. For Age Verification and other compliance, instant bonuses can be withdrawn only after a real first deposit has been made. Players' accounts are subject to a verification check prior to the first withdrawal according to the William Hill General T&C.
  6. Players who made a deposit can cash out the deposit amount as long as the bonus amount will remain in the account (if wagering wasn't complete). Example: a deposit of $100 is made on top of the $50 bonus and the account shows as $150. If the player wishes to withdraw then he can do so for a maximum of $100.
  7. If the bonus is lost during poker play, the restrictions will still remain in the player's account - the equal amount of bonus issued in rake or fees must be generated to be able to make a withdrawal. Example: a player is issued a $10 instant bonus and loses it before being able to clear it. When he makes a deposit of $50, he will be able to withdraw only $40 until the wagering requirements have been fulfilled.
  8. Poker winnings are not subject to wagering - the wagering conditions apply only to the amount of cash bonus received. For example, if a player receives an Instant Bonus of $10 and increases his balance to $100 by playing poker, only $90 can be cashed out. The other $10 can be cashed out once the player generates at least $10 in rake and/or fees.
  9. Players can request for a bonus to be cut, but along with the bonus amount all winnings will be cut as well. Once requested, the procedure becomes irreversible.
  10. Bonuses are issued for use on poker games only. Winnings achieved due to use or partial use of the cash bonus on non-poker products cannot be withdrawn.
