William Hill is also currently running one of the largest cash promotions in their history. Players will have a chance to earn their share of $750,000 via the WHP Cash Point leaderboards. The nuts and bolts of the promotion is once a player has registered for the promo, if that player pays rake on cash game tables he or she will automatically be enrolled into the promotion. Players can also play Sit&Go tournaments to earn the most Cash Points and try to top the leaderboards. Separate leaderboards for Micro, Low and Mid/High stakes exist to provide an opportunity for players of every level. This promotion ends September 23rd so there is plenty of time to make your stamp on a leaderboard and earn your cut of the nearly $1 million prize pool.
Willam Hill Poker has pushed the tournament promotions to the maximum, bringing players a fantastic variety of options to satisfy their every tournament need. The WHP Super Series guarantees a payout of £13,000 every week, with a special tournament every single day. Highlights include the £1,500 guaranteed Monday Madness Omaha Rebuy and the Sunday £5,000 guaranteed Super Sunday Main Event. There are Super Satellites that take place just before the Main Event so it’s never too late to get a ticket into their tournament!
The Goal Fest promotion has run throughout the Euro 2012 football tournament and hinges its value on the number of goals scored in that nights match! Prizes can be multiplied up to 4x based on the final score of a match. The Goal Fest Grand Final is coming up soon on July 6, 2012 at 20:00 U.K. time, with a current prize pool of over $1200, and a buy-in of $10+$1.
For players who seek huge paydays but don’t have the biggest bankroll, William Hill offers the Steps Tournament series so you can climb your way to the top of the tournament heap! Starting at a paltry $0.15, players can earn their way up from Steps 1-7, eventually winning a ticket into the $215 Sunday $200,000 guaranteed tournament. Players also have ample opportunity to earn their buy-in back without winning the Step so this promotion is a great investment.
The Sunday $200,000 Guaranteed is the biggest tournament on William Hill and it runs every week! At 18:00 U.K. time every Sunday, thousands of players gear up to win a portion of that massive prize pool. Smaller satellite tournaments take place all week leading up to the tourney, so players again have ample opportunity to get in on the cheap and make their mark.

The Jackpot Sit&Go Tournaments are for the ultimate gamblers. With four different tiers, these tournaments are perfect for players of any budget.

These jackpots are won by winning consecutive Sit&Gos, six in a row for the $50,000 Fort Knox grand prize. Perhaps the best part of this promotion is that if no one wins during the week, part of last week’s prize is added to the jackpot. For the Fort Knox tournaments, $20,000 is added on to next week’s jackpot if there is no winner!
