Bwin has established itself as the ultimate resource for sports betting fans, whether they are beginners or experienced players. Historically speaking, the site was once known as Betandwin, excelling in both sports and online poker in 1997. This was subsequently extended to include a casino and soft games platform. In 2011, it launched its new brand by partnering with the Bwin Party Digital group. Today, you have access to all these types of entertainment on the web. Eventually, the bookmaker has become a leading sports betting site on an international scale.
Bwin was one of the first operators to be licensed by the ARJEL in 2010. Currently, the platform operates legally under the license number 0001-PS-2010-06-07 and approval number 0001-PS-HOM-2010-06-07, as a poker site and sports betting bookmaker. In order to guarantee the anonymity of the players, the site holds an SSL certificate allowing to keep all the players’ data in highly secured servers.
Design and functions
On the whole, Bwin stands out for its specifically convincing design. The ergonomics of the site are particularly appreciated, as the navigation is very user-friendly. The perfectly structured homepage presents you with various separate sections leading to the main options of the portal as well as to a lot of information. Clicking on the ‘Sports Betting’ tab gives you a better overview of all of the sports events and betting options at Bwin. Naturally, you will find the registration and login buttons at the top right-hand side of your screen at a glance.
With its mobile version, Bwin is more flexible and efficient. No matter where you are, you can access the site from your smartphone or tablet. But just wait until you see what its more intuitively designed downloadable app is worth. The program, which is compatible with Android and iOS operating systems, has exactly the same functionality as the classic version.
At Bwin, there are 3 steps to creating an active account:
- First, enter your country of residence, e-mail address, full name and surname;
- Then choose a nickname, enter a password, and specify your date and place of birth;
- Finalize the registration by adding your address and telephone number to the registration form.
If you want to receive notifications about offers at Bwin, all you have to do is to tick the appropriate boxes. Similarly, you will be asked to enter your deposit and betting limits to help control your gambling. Please also submit your bank account details for the collection of your winnings. It should be noted that you have the opportunity to place your bets on the same interface, both on the casino and the bookmaker part, using a single account.
Bonuses and promotions
All new registrants at Bwin receive a welcome bonus of €120 as a reward. This amount will be returned to you if your first bet is unsuccessful. In general, the offers of the bookmaker consist mainly of free bets to maintain its community. As for the conditions, Bwin gives you 7 days to use your bonus. Failure to do so will result in the cancellation of your free bet. In addition, the operator keeps up with the competition by offering a welcome bonus on poker. This takes the form of a doubled amount, up to a maximum of €100. In addition, the other offers at Bwin include:
- Promo Codes to fund your account;
- Prediction challenges via social networks, with great prizes;
- A loyalty programme, also valid for poker.
Betting and gaming market
Through a well-stocked sports catalogue, Bwin is able to satisfy a wide range of punters. The categories appear to be very diverse, ranging from the most popular to the least favoured disciplines. These include football, basketball, handball, tennis, formula one, motorbike, boxing, rugby, ice hockey, rally, downhill skiing, golf… in short, everything you could want. For more convenience, the odds are aligned according to the chronology of the events and types of bets. We note a relatively practical game interface, perfectly suited to beginners. The winnings turn out to be more substantial depending on your choice of bet. We therefore advise you to try your luck on a combination or system bet, even if the single bet is the most popular option for thousands of participants. When it comes to streaming and live service, Bwin is certainly one of the best in the market. Thanks to the Multiplex function, the bookmaker reserves the right to broadcast matches, offering summaries of the course of events in real time. On the other hand, the TV offer will be aimed at punters with a positive account balance.
