Since its creation in 1999, Winamax has become a major reference. Although the establishment was ranked number one in the field of poker, it has now launched itself into the sports betting industry through perseverance. The implementation of its promotion policy, bonuses and loyalty programme has made the site one of the most successful in the industry. In fact, it is one of the few operators to grant a referral bonus to its users. Let’s not forget its various partnerships with French football clubs, notably Olympique de Marseille, Girondins de Bordeaux, OGC Nice, Losc Lille and Amiens SC.
Winamax and accreditation
Since 2014, Winamax has obtained an accreditation issued by the ARJEL as a sports betting trader. This authorization gives it full rights on any type of online betting. Today, the company operates legally and is able to provide access to all its services.
Overview of the site
Apparently, the Winamax platform has a simple design, but has nothing to envy to professional designers. The interface welcomes its users with the dominant features of black and white, added to a shade of red. Overall, one notes a very correct ergonomics, enhanced by a refined style.
