This bookmaker is another bookmaker on its own. It shares some similarities with the bookmakers such as betway, 188bet, and Sportpesa in that it is used to sponsor a football club except that betway still sponsors an EPL club, West Ham United FC.

Bonuses and promotions

At the moment, there are hot deals that are very irresistible to the punters. However, a few of them will be mentioned here. One of them is the welcome deposit bonus, a promo that is common among the top bookmakers. New Zealand players can get a 100% deposit bonus of what they have deposited provided they deposit something that is neither below $10 nor exceeds $100.

Betting markets and odds

The sportsbook has over 30,000 markets readily available on a daily basis for its customers to bet on. The markets are from over 85 sports events and other events such as politics. Majorly, the market is dominated by the sports events such as the European and American Football, Basketball, Volleyball, Formula 1, Motorsports, Crickets, golf, ice hockey, tennis, Darts, and entertainment.

The margins of the games vary from one sports event to another. For instance, soccer margins could go up to 6% while others go as low as 2.5%. On average, the margins will drop or rise to something between 4 and 5 percent.

In-play and mobile betting

It is possible to bet on the games or events that have already kicked off but are yet to be ended. Bwin took care of that by introducing the in-play betting so as to enable its customers to still bet on the events that they had planned to bet on. Yet again, there is the issue of mobile betting. Those who prefer to place their bets using their mobile devices can do so as long as their devices are either Android devices or iOS devices. Android users can download the mobile app from the bookmaker’s website while the iOS lovers can replicate the same but through their iTunes play store accounts. Those who possess neither of the mentioned devices should not panic since they can still visit the mobile website version of Bwin and still get the same experience to those who are using the mobile app.

Security, fairness, and the supported banking methods

Security comes along through the use of the SSL encryption code or key by this bookmaker to encrypt all customers’ data whether sensitive or not. This has saved so many innocent bettors from being attacked by unauthorized persons or hackers from all corners of the world. It is one of the reasons why the bookmaker has many customers in its database because of the trust that they have on it.

There is a random number generated that is used to distribute odds and payouts fairly. This way, no one gets oppressed at all. That RNG is normally monitored by some governing bodies to ensure that everything goes on smoothly and that no one misuses the RNG for their own benefits. It is a member of eCOGRA, a UK-based auditing firm.
The payment options that are acceptable in this sportsbook are PayPal, Skrill, Maestro, Ideal, EntroPay, Giropay, Bank Transfer, Neteller, Clicky, Paysafe Card, MasterCard, Visa Card, Diners Club, Money Transfer. Too bad, not all of the mentioned options support both the withdrawal and deposit requests. It is only a few of them that does that. And again, not all of the methods herein mentioned are available worldwide. Some are only limited to some specific countries.
When it comes to the maximum and minimum withdrawal or deposit limits, some of the options do allow a lump sum of money to be transacted while others don’t. As an example, Bank Transfer can allow the bettor to deposit or withdraw as little as €10 and as much as €100,000, a figure that no other option accepted by Bwin can match that.

The deposit and withdrawal processing time for all of the options is instantaneous except for the Bank Transfer option which takes between 1-3 business days. The accepted currencies in this bookmaker are the US Dollars, British Pounds, Canadian Dollars, Euros, Swiss Francs, Swedish Krona, Danish Kroner, Russian Rubles, and Turkish Lira.

Bwin at a glance

This bookmaker is owned and operated by the GVC Holdings, a firm that is headquartered at the Isle of Man. Bwin used to be BetandWin before merging with PartyGaming in 2011 to form Bwin. After the merger, Bwin was then operated by the Bwin Interactive AG before being purchased by its current operators, GVC Holdings, in February 2016.
As mentioned earlier, Bwin used to Real Madrid’s shirts sponsor for a period of 3 years starting from the 2010-2011 football season. At that time, the deal was €20 million a year and thus ended up at €60 after those three years elapsed. Even then, it is currently an official online gaming and betting partner of Real Madrid FC. This bookmaker has been a sponsor of the Portuguese football league since the year 2005.

For those in New Zealand who’re also new to betting, then Bwin is one sportsbook that’s worth opening an account with because of their pedigree as one of the top sportsbooks.

The bookmaker has over 1500 employees at the moment and over 20 million registered users. Its website is operated by the Electra Works Limited which is licensed by the Gibraltar Gaming Commissioner and the United Kingdom Gambling Commission.

It is sad to say this but there are some countries that do not allow Bwin services or activities to be executed within their borders. The list of those countries is kind of long but a few of them are mentioned below. Countries restricting Bwin services are the United States, French and its territories, Portugal, Liberia, Lebanon, Hong Kong, Sudan, Somalia, Syria, Turkey, Greece, Puerto Rico, Guadeloupe, Zimbabwe, and the Republic of China.
