FULL REVIEW - Bwin (9)Bwin International Ltd. was founded in 1999 and has since made its way to the head of the pack in the international online gaming industry. Known as 'Bet and Win' until 2006, Bwin is probably most notable for their main stream sponsorships of many big time events, leagues, and teams. Just to name a few, Bwin is the official sponsor for famed football clubs Real Madrid, AC Milan, and Bayern Munich, the International Basketball Federation (FIBA), and the MotoGP.
Bwin has arguably the largest football betting selection bettors can find. They cover over 500 leagues throughout more than 100 countries worldwide and do so in 22 different languages. If you are looking for a smaller, obscure league and can't find it at Bwin, then you probably won't find it anywhere else. As a result of their diverse coverage however, their odds are competitive but not spectacular.
Bwin has excellent coverage of sports other than football as well. They offer customers betting markets in over 80 different sports. Bwin is particularly popular in countries other than the UK (mainly because there are so many domestic bookmakers) such as Spain and Germany, and as a result have notable coverage and odds in areas such as tennis, basketball, and Formula 1.
Bwin delivers the most graphic intensive, aesthetically pleasing site of all online bookmakers. Their official homepage and sports homepage are both composed of several high quality rotating images that feature upcoming events and the week's most popular events, respectively. The site is unique in that it features a black backdrop with white text which is sure to catch users' attentions and make them remember the site. The only drawback is that users' with slow connection speeds may have difficulty loading pages efficiently as a result of the graphic intensity.

I registered with bwin 7 days ago, on 5 May and after a £20 qualifying bet, asked for the £20 free bet offered when I joined. I wrote to ask for it to be put on my account and received an incorrect email saying it was not due. I have now sent 5 emails in the last 7 days and received no reply whatsoever. Many other online companies even have a live question and answer facility. I doubt if bwin is a scam or they intend to be inefficient otherwise they would have ceased trading and not receive this site's excellent company review, however their customer service is non existent. Can anyonyone suggest what I should try next Mike W
1. Bonus not payed out. 2. No payout possible, there's always something. 3. They simply don't answer emails. 4. Terrible custumor service, it's a joke almost hilearous. Shame on WSN.com! What the hell you gave them an 8 for custumorservice, and an 9 for the whole site. CROOKS
So i made a depost of 10 euro and they give me 5 euro casino bonus. After that i made some winnings up to €450 euro. Then i want to make a withdrawal and they told i would take up to 3 business days because they were doing internal checks??? Now one week later still no reaction, but my account is still open and i have no funds or whatever on it. Poor poor poooor costumer service. I'v send about 50 e-mails but still they are not responding. ONE ADVICE: DONT DEPOSIT ON THIS BOOKMAKER, IT'S A SCAM!!!! THEY TAKE YOUR MONEY AND IF YOU WIN THEY WON'T PAY OUT SO PEOPLE BE AWARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Exactly as others say,deposit amount of cash and get £20.00 immediately paid into account ,great it sounds BUT so many complications go with it that are NOT in black white that do not occur in any other betting site that i know of.Have to roll over £200.00 before qualifying for £20.00 bonus.
Had my first bets with bwin in July, registration and depositing was simple, the bets didn't win, no problem. Then this month I had another bet and it won. I login monday morning and am greeted with 'Account Closed'. I email then and about 4 hours late they get back saying I need to send off a picture of my passport, a utility bill and both sides of the card I deposited the money with. I'm not getting a bloody mortgage!!! Anyway, I oblige pointing out I am far from comfortable sending off my card details in this form. That was tuesday, it's no thursday and I've heard zero back from them. Here's the thing, you have to be over 18 to PLACE A BET, not CLAIM WINNINGS! I am infact 26, but if I was 11 and depositing with my first debit card, they'd happily take my money .... until I won. Then suddenly, it's time to close his account and get scans of his retina's. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY
I wish I had read these reviews before I registered. Attracted by generous odds but after depositing £50 they would only allow £25 to be staked. After that I had two winning bets incorrectly settled which took two days to sort out. They took ages to settle other bets. There web site is so complicated that you need to be a member of MENSA to understand it. Finally when you try to withdraw money they make it so difficult to get your money i.e. send scanned picture of passport, funny they don't ask for this when making a deposit. Still waiting after 5 days for £400 to be returned. DO NOT USE THIS BOOKMAKER THEY ARE A SHAMBLES. SHAME ON OTHER SITES RECOMMENDING THEM!!!!
Joined Bwin. Paid deposit by bank transfer as they do not accept Visa debit cards. Said I could pay by Visa, but this would be a credit card transaction, therefore open to charges by my bank. When I contacted them they said bank transfer would take 7 days to hit my bwin account, despite all UK bank transfers now being carried out almost immediately. Now 15 days later and still no sign of my money. Then had cheek to ask me to complete a customer satisfaction survey. Take my advice and avoid bwin like the plague. Use any other online betting site instead as at least you have a reasonable chance of seeing your money again.
just got off the phone with their customer service and think I have it sorted out, a lovely lady called Leanne went through it with me and I sent her an email with my picture document and have now recieved an email confirming that it was recieved and accepted. Leanne was great but still think the site should be avoided as i have sent a number of messges and not one was replied to.
I have just sent a perfect picture of my passport and guess what? it has been refused as they now say i have sent too many documents. lol . anybody got advice for me as i think they are doing their best not to pay out.
THE ARE CON MEN, ALWAYS FIXING THE ODDS IN PLAY TO CON YOU, AND VOIDING BETS IF YOU WIN.
Has anybody here been paid?
I wish I had read these reviews first before I joined. I won £65 and also tried to withdraw before i relised i had to send photo id. When I phoned them I got through to an indian call centre and the lady struggles to understand me and just kept saying it is in the terms and conditions which I admit i didnt read as I am a member of a lot of betting sites and hadnt had any problems before. I sent them a pic of myself from my passport and a messege asking if this would be ok and if not why and didnt get a reply after 2 days so have sent 2 more e-mails which both have not been answered. IF i get my money I will never bet on this site again. STAY AWAY!!!!
Opened account and got the 50% credit bonus awarded instantly, great ... but hang on, it goes downhill thereafter. Won a few pounds and wanted to withdraw £50, wanted copy of ID (passport, driving liscence etc) either uploading or sent by fax before they would release the £50. Not in work for over a week now with no access to fax or copier so stumped. Sent several email asking if they could just return it to mt betting account and i will play with it instead .. no response for 3 days !!!!!!!!!!!!! Just awful, wish i had read thr withdrawal system before opening account cos i wouldnt have bothered . SLOW SLOW SLOW customer service
my father and i both joined recently since we joined we've been swamped with junk from other gambling and goods sites. This is the only gambling site we've joined for many a moon! read in to it what you will!
I played with £20 and won £80 so wanted to withdraw. They came back to me saying I only have 7 days to give them my driving licence or Passport or I won’t get the £80. Very annoying if I knew this I wouldn’t of signed up with them in the first place.
be aware -deposit money and you cant get it back -it's taken me two weeks without a proper respinse so far for a simple £8 win
So they offer good odds -but be very aware.. deposit a reasonable amount of money to make a bet and they will not let you wage the full amount. No problem you would think but in their terms and conditions they say they have the right to not repay deposited money if it's not bet, in other words deposit £100 to make a bet, they limit the bet to £5 and they keep the reamining £95 until you bet on something else! BE VERY AWARE, ALSO THEIR COMMUNICATION IS A 5 WORKING DAY RESPONSE
