      How do I take part?

      To compete in the WSOP rake race, simply opt-in and play as much as you can on your tracked William Hill account between April 28 and June 11 to climb up the leaderboard.

      NOTE: WSOP packages are not available to players from the UK as per the United Kingdom Gambling Commission (UKGC) regulations. In the case that a UK based player wins a WSOP package, they will still receive the value of the package in cash* but will have to make their own arrangements to attend the series.

      *In order for UK players to receive the full value of the package, they must book their accomodation in accordance with the details outlined in this thread.

      Funds for event registration, flights and spending money will ALWAYS be issued in cash, but the sum dedicated for accomodation MUST be used for the above outlined stays at the Wynn Hotel, otherwise UK players will not receive these sums in any form.


      William Hill's terms & conditions apply to this promotion and may be changed at any time.

      Do we have to make the deposit on the 1st or can I deposit before? Does the deposit need to be before getting points?

      I made my deposit on 29.04. Am I still eligible for wsop freeroll? It is written nowhere that deposit has to me made on may 1st.

      Otherwise it would be quite fucked up because there is no information anywhere

      I agree, it could have been worded better.

      I am not British myself either ;)

      Could somebody from Pokerstrategy please help me out?

      I made a deposit on May 1st of £65 and have earned over 5 SP's for 20 days yet I am unable to register for the tournament while other players are able to.


      I contacted the WillHill customer services via the live chat help and was first told my deposit was just short of $100 and so I did not qualify, however when I questioned this as £65 is more than $100 and was on May 1st when I deposited they said there was an error on the system that said I had deposited 65 Euros. They guy said he would escalate it to the relevant department and have me registered.

      I did not receive any reply the following day and as the tournament is just a few days away I decided to send an e-mail explaining the situation.


      They have got back to me quite quickly however now they are saying this

      Please be informed that UK players are not eligible to join this freeroll. WSOP packages are not available to players from the UK as per the United Kingdom Gambling Commission (UKGC) regulations. You may contact your affiliate directly regarding this for more details.

      Should you have further questions, feel free to contact us. Thank you and have a nice day!

      I have replied to that directing them to this site and pointing out the note about UK players receiving the cash value and having to book their own accommodation.

      Is there anything someone can do for me please? I have made a deposit over $100, earned the SP's required and never had any trouble registering for any previous Poker Strategy games on Willhill before.
