William Hill Poker features Speed Poker, its offering to the fans of "fast-fold" poker. Instead of being seated at the same table for the duration of your cash game session, you get to change table and opponents each time you fold!
If you don’t like the cards you have been dealt, you can click the speed fold button and be instantly whisked away to a new table with new opponents and cards!
You can do this as frequently as you like until you find hole cards that you are happy to play. This massively speeds up gameplay and allows your to log many more hands than you would usually be able to.
William Hill Poker is also the home to Twister Poker, a special sit-and-go tournament format. Twister Poker tournaments are played three-handed, to a hyper-turbo blind structure and with the prize randomly selected at the start of the tournament.
