Bwin Free Bet Bonus & Review

Overview

Known previously as Betandwin, Bwin is one of Europe’s most popular online bookmakers and a name that has become well established throughout the industry. While Bwin’s links to football are clear due to its presence as a sponsor to some of the game’s biggest teams and events, the operator has made a huge effort to embrace a large amount of different sports from around the world.

The attention to detail on the impressive website they have put together is a major factor in Bwin’s ability to gain a loyal and growing fan-base. Whether it’s those major sports you see covered by the majority of online bookmakers, to those more niche sports often overlooked by the betting industry, Bwin offers a range of different betting options for punters to make big money.

With Bwin, punters are able to bet on an event while it's happening as well as watch the ever-increasing amount of live-streamed sport events taking place across the globe. Each moment, right up to the very last minute of an event, is a chance to win at Bwin. From the amount of sports covered by the site or the various different outcomes you can bet on, Bwin has everything you could need from an online bookmaker, as well as some further functions that might surprise you.

The Interface

If you’re looking for a virtual betting platform that is easy to navigate, Bwin is for you. But this isn’t just a simple betting site, and there are more than a few features that are very pleasant surprises. There are few better looking websites in the world of online betting, featuring eye-catching graphics and an all-round stylish lay-out. The pull down menus on the left hand side contain all the sports covered by Bwin, Live Betting options for you to take part in and even a Video category for you to watch the action you end up betting on, as well as all the promotions and offers available.

There is also the easy-to-find last minute bets section, most wanted bets, result service, and calendar, which leads to Bwin’s database of upcoming events, all in clear fonts and well designed features. As well as being able to personalise your account in order to have your favourite events and sports ready for you when you arrive on the page, Bwin offers an impressive amount of statistics to help give their punters a leg up.

One of the most essential aspects a betting website is for it to be easy to navigate so one can quickly act when it comes to changing odds or breaking news, and Bwin has really focused on this. Whether you’re watching a live stream or taking advantage of the extensive casino, you’re only ever a couple of a clicks away from the main page and a virtual betting slip.

The Sports Betting Menu

Having all the sports in the world means little if an online bookmaker can’t back it up with an equally extensive amount of betting options, and Bwin have made sure they haven’t fallen into the trap some betting sites have in that respect. By catering to punters who like to bet on sports from across the spectrum, Bwin is able to offer more chances to make money than many of the more established names in the industry, with the increased numbers resulting in bigger wins for punters.

And if you’re a fan of football betting, Bwin has to be on the list of sites you bet with - and fairly high on that list. Playing host to around 500 different leagues from across over 100 countries, there are few online bookmakers, if any, who can boast such an extensive amount of football betting as Bwin. But even if you’re not a football fan, monitoring Bwin for all your sporting odds is a wise choice due to the fact they are often one of the first to release their odds on upcoming events, be it football, basketball or horse racing.

The Tech Wizardry

Offering live text commentary is one thing but being able to watch the action you are betting on is another, and it’s here where Bwin have put a lot of their technical focus. Being able to fully immerse yourself in the particular sporting event you are betting on gives the punter a better chance of being able to spot those things that can often get missed when just reading updates.

The livescore, results and statistics sections give punters more information to help them when it comes to their betting. The statistics is where a lot of punters like to do their research before placing a wager, and the Bwinstats team have done an impressive job putting together a thorough list that could just what one of their punters need to help them make that winning bet. The Last Minute Bets is always there for when you want to jump straight in to the action, where punters can then easily discover who the favourites and underdogs are in a certain event, as well as acting as a sporting calendar.

But all Bwin’s work would be worthless if the betting public wasn’t made aware of its existence, and the operator has done a good job in spreading the word thanks to social media, in particular Twitter. Whether its updates during a major sporting event, breaking news or a change in odds, Bwin can get the word out to their members through Twitter and ensure punters don’t miss out on any action.

Bonuses and Bargains

The Top Combi+ offer has been a real hit for Bwin, offering members up to 30% higher odds for certain teams to win. This offer is available on a number of sports, but it’s the football and basketball where punters have really enjoyed this particular promotion from Bwin. Each day, Bwin selects a Top Combi+ offer of the day, allowing members to back those three teams at increased odds and significantly boosting their betting balances should the wager come off.

The cash-out option has become one of the most used functions in online betting over the past couple of years, and Bwin has missed this feature from its attractive virtual platform. So if you feel a bet isn’t going to come off, punters can cash-out and ensure they walk away from the event with either a smaller loss or a moderate profit. Being able to watch the action unfold on the live streaming service can make the cash-out option very lucrative, with betting fans able to gauge a possible change in outcome and take the decision to cash their chips in early and walk away with something to their name.

View from the Betting Floor

While much of Bwin’s publicity has come from their links to the football world, it hasn’t taken long for it to spread out into well over 30 different sports. From its attractive and easy-to-use betting platform, to its social media presence, live streaming and promotions, this is an online bookmaker that has something for everyone, experienced gambler or betting novice.
