Bwin Sister Sites

LC International Limited isn’t the casino network company that introduced the Bwin brand to the UK, but it’s the casino network company that holds its reigns now. Being on this platform means that there are some massive names among the Bwin sister sites, and we’re not just talking about the likes of Coral and Ladbrokes. From high-profile casinos to big-name betting sites, LC International Limited – which is part of Entain Plc – has something for everyone when it comes to iGaming. Find out more about the company and see a complete list of all the Bwin sister sites on our dedicated LC International Limited page, or stay here and see the highlights.

Bwin Casino

Bwin Casino logo

Bwin Casino is a Bwin sister site that only exists because Bwin itself because such a big deal in the UK after LC International acquired it. It was never envisioned as anything more than a sports betting site by its original Austrian owners, but it takes more than that to become a household name in the competitive UK gambling scene of the 2020s. When the decision was made to add extra games and other casino features to Bwin, a whole new minisite was created within the existing one. That minisite is Bwin Casino, and it’s stacked high with more than one thousand slots and games including a handy number of exclusives. Bwin Casino does pretty much everything a player with modern tastes could expect from a casino site. It has promotions, it provides access to live dealers, and it stays up to date with new releases. It even maintains a blog to tell you what’s new and interesting at the site. If slots are your thing, Bwin Casino might turn out to be your thing, too.

Sporting Bet

Sportingbet

Sporting Bet is a Bwin sister site that has even more in common with Bwin than Bwin Casino does. Bwin Casino does all the things that Bwin itself doesn’t, whereas the point of Sporting Bet is that it does all the same things as Bwin. It even has a similar origin story, having been founded in mainland Europe before finding its way into the UK market thanks to a hookup with LC International Limited. The biggest difference between the two sports betting-focused brands is what happened next. After Bwin established itself in the UK market, it gained Bwin Casino and, over time, a connected bingo site. That’s yet to happen for Sporting Bet. Perhaps that’s because the site hasn’t been quite as successful in conquering the UK market as Bwin has – so those days could still be to come if Sporting Bet ever does a better job of capturing UK market share.

Party Casino

Party Casino logo

Party Casino has a great name but might suffer because of that name. It’s a light-hearted title, and because it’s light-hearted, some players might not think that Party Casino is as serious about its business as some of the other big-name Bwin sister sites. If you’re one of those players, allow us to set the record straight. Party Casino is happy to have a laugh and a joke with you, but the quality and depth of its gaming portfolio is no laughing matter. The fact that Party Casino isn’t quite on the same level as, say, Gala Spins isn’t through lack of trying. Big money has been spent on adverts for Party Casino in the past, including high-profile sporting sponsorships and prominent TV commercial placements. For whatever reason, the breakthrough moment for the brand simply hasn’t happened. The quality of the Party Casino offering isn’t in doubt, though, and so perhaps this could be considered the secret treasure of the LC International Limited range.

Bwin sister sites Party Casino

Ladbrokes

Ladbrokes logo

If Bwin were on almost any other casino network – perhaps legitimately any other casino network – it would be the biggest sports betting site on it by a country mile. Unfortunately for Bwin and the staff that work exclusively on it, Ladbrokes is a Bwin sister site. Compared to Ladbrokes, almost everybody in the sports betting world is competing for second place. Ladbrokes was the world’s first (known) sports betting company and is easily the oldest still involved in the industry today. Ladbrokes has evolved and changed almost beyond all recognition since those early years taking wagers on dogs and horses. If you want to play poker with Ladbrokes now, you can do it. If you want to use Ladbrokes to bet on the outcome of the next General Election, they’d love to take your money. Ladbrokes is an all-purpose gambling company – and that’s why it’s the biggest site on this network.

Bwin Ladbrokes

Coral

Coral logo

Having established that Bwin isn’t the biggest sports betting website on this casino network, we must now confirm that it isn’t the second biggest either. That honour goes to Coral – and anyone who works for Coral rather than Ladbrokes will probably be annoyed with us for saying that. To those people, all we can say is that the initials “LC” in “LC International Limited” are arranged in that specific order for a good reason. Ladbrokes comes first. That’s no shame, though, and Coral is still a massive Bwin sister site. Coral isn’t quite as old as Ladbrokes, but it isn’t a million miles away. The first Coral store opened its doors in 2026, meaning Coral will celebrate its centenary within the current decade. We’re sure that the famous old blue sports betting brand will find a special way to mark the occasion. In the meantime, it still offers fair and generous odds on all the biggest sporting occasions.

Bwin Coral

Gamebookers

Gamebookers logo

We’ve finally arrived upon a sports betting Bwin sister site that ranks below Bwin in the pecking order. Gamebookers is small fry compared to every other gambling brand under the LC International Limited umbrella – so much so that it’s hard to see why the network company is holding onto the brand. It would likely be better off in someone else’s hands, where it could receive more attention and have a better chance to flourish. At the moment, the welfare and performance of Gamebookers can’t be a primary concern to its parent company and probably doesn’t rank as a secondary concern either. Gamebookers is a vanilla sports betting site. It doesn’t have the bells and whistles of a Ladbrokes or Coral, nor the casino attachments of Bwin. It focuses on one job in much the same way that Sporting Bet does but is yet to match even Sporting Bet in the success stakes. It’s the odd one out in the Bwin sister sites family, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth checking out if you have sports bets to place.

Bwin Gamebookers

Party Poker

Party Poker logo

As Monty Python used to say, “And now for something completely different.” Party Poker has nothing to do with sports betting unless you happen to count poker as a sport, which some people do. It’s the most single-minded of the Bwin sister sites. All of the other sister sites either dabble in forms of casino entertainment aside from their speciality or have scope to do so in the future. Party Poker might be nominally connected to Party Casino, but it has no interest in anything that Party Casino does. It’s here for poker and poker only. Party Poker might not yet be the biggest poker website in the UK, but it would love to hold that rank, and it’s trying extremely hard to get there. It sponsors and hosts tournaments. It operates a streaming channel showing wall-to-wall in-person poker games. There’s a Party Poker academy for new players and a socialising area for players to meet each other and form teams. It has everything an online (or offline) poker player could want – and that will ultimately be the key to its success.

Bwin Party Poker

Gala Bingo

Gala Bingo logo

Gala Bingo used to be one of the biggest names on the British high street when it came to bingo halls. Now it doesn’t have a presence on the British high street at all. Gala Bingo lost the bingo wars to Mecca Bingo, and almost all of the former Gala Bingo halls are now Buzz Bingo halls instead. That doesn’t mean the Gala Bingo brand is dead, though. It just means it’s turned its focus somewhere else. To be more specific, this Bwin sister site now exists only on the internet. Gala Bingo became a digital-only brand in 2015 and heralded its new status with a series of high-profile television marketing campaigns, including sponsorship of “The Chase” on ITV. It’s arguably as big a deal online as it ever was offline and has successfully spawned both Gala Spins and Gala Casino.

Bwin sister sites Gala Bingo

Ladbrokes Casino

Ladbrokes Casino logo

If you want to know how similarly LC International Limited treats its best-known casino and gambling brands, consider this fact. One of the Bwin sister sites is Bwin Casino – a fully-functional casino minisite embedded within the Bwin website itself. That’s an idea that the network company took from its experiments with Ladbrokes. Gone are the days when you couldn’t look to Ladbrokes for anything other than the latest sporting odds. Those days ended a very long time ago – and the existence of Ladbrokes Casino is the proof. Ladbrokes Casino is a vast collection of online slots, game shows, live dealers, table games and more delivered with the backing of the familiar Ladbrokes brand name. Customers don’t even have to leave the main Ladbrokes website to interact with the games. The creation of Ladbrokes Casino was a power move from LC International – and the quality of the site is such that it could compete with almost any other casino site in the game.

Bwin sister sites Ladbrokes Casino

Coral Casino

Coral Casino logo

The creation of Coral Casino became inevitable the moment that Ladbrokes Casino was created. Even though both brands now share a roof with LC International, there’s no way the people responsible for the Coral brand were ever going to let the people responsible for the Ladbrokes brand get one over of them. Every move made by either Coral or Ladbrokes in recent years has been mirrored by the other, right down to the creation of bingo and casino minisites. Coral Casino is a viable Bwin sister site for all of the same reasons that Ladbrokes Casino is. It features a similar range to Bwin Casino, it has all the promotional lower of Ladbrokes Casino, and ultimately it comes from the same parent company. The quality of LC International Limited’s casino is reasonably consistent across the entire range, so as long as you like one, you’re likely to enjoy them all.

Bwin News

: The website Bookies.com has reviewed Bwin for their Canadian readers, highlighting Bwin as one of the most promising new online gambling platforms for players in Ontario, the review emphasised its comprehensive slot game portfolio, including over 900 slots from top developers like NetEnt, Microgaming, and IGT. The Bwin casino app is highly rated for its user-friendly design and availability on both iOS and Android. However, some users noted issues with freezing and slow updates. Additionally, the review pointed out that while the casino offers a wide range of games, the banking options could be improved and the app experience does not fully replicate the desktop site.

While online slot games make up the bulk of the games, for players who prefer to engage with other games, there is no shortage of other options. There is a solid selection of video poker, blackjack, baccarat, and roulette games which are available on both the app and the desktop version of the site. Another major element of Bwin’s appeal is the gambling brand’s reputable standing in the industry, which is backed by over two decades of experience and a strong track record of excellent customer service. The platform’s integration within Entain’s network, which includes brands like BetMGM and partypoker, further strengthens its appeal by providing a reliable and secure gambling environment. Overall, as noted by Bookies.com, the casino presents a robust and promising option for online gambling in Ontario, combining a vast selection of games, a user-friendly app, and a trusted reputation in the industry.

: Just before the first European Championship match, Bwin published a blog which detailed all of the winner odds and painted England as the sole favourites. As the anticipated tournament in Germany approached, England’s odds were set at 7/2. This comes despite a dip in form, including a loss to Brazil and a draw with Belgium, which momentarily saw their odds increase. Nevertheless, their squad depth and recent performances keep them as the primary contenders for the trophy. France, close behind with odds of 4/1, displayed a strong qualifying performance, dropping only two points in their group. With Kylian Mbappe leading a dynamic squad, they are expected to be formidable opponents. Germany, the host nation, holds odds of 11/2. Despite a rocky start under Julian Nagelsmann, a recent victory over France hints at potential resurgence, but consistency remains a concern for the home team.

Bwin Euro 2024 odds

Portugal, with odds at 13/2, breezed through their qualifiers without dropping a single point. Cristiano Ronaldo, along with Premier League stars like Bruno Fernandes and Bernardo Silva, adds significant firepower to their squad. However, questions remain over Roberto Martinez’s ability to guide them to victory. Spain, sitting at 7/1, has blended experienced players like Alvaro Morata with young talents such as Nico Williams. The injury to Gavi is a setback, but their overall form is promising. Defending champions Italy are pegged at 16/1, reflecting their uneven form post-Euro 2020. Similarly, the Netherlands and Belgium share these odds, each showcasing strong qualifying campaigns under Ronald Koeman and new management, respectively.

: Goal.com recently provided an in-depth review of Bwin’s welcome offer and its features. Goal.com found that Bwin is enticing new users with a welcome bonus that refunds their first bet stake up to £20 as a free bet if it loses. To qualify, users must place a 3+ leg accumulator with odds of 2/1 (3.00) or higher. This promotion allows bettors to take risks with their initial wager, knowing they can recoup their stake if unsuccessful. The offer stands out compared to other bookmakers by providing a unique safety net for new users. Additionally, Bwin offers existing customers promotions such as ACCA boosts and the ‘Predict 5’ game, where participants can win cash or free bets by predicting football match outcomes. The ACCA boost increases winnings based on the number of selections in an accumulator, ranging from a 5% bonus for trebles to a 70% bonus for 14-folds or more.

This week’s football action on the sportsbook includes coverage of several high-stakes matches. The Europa League final between Atalanta and Bayer Leverkusen, the FA Cup final between Manchester City and Manchester United, the DFB Pokal final in Germany, the Coupe de France final between Lyon and PSG, and the Championship Playoff final between Leeds United and Southampton are all lined up, providing ample opportunities for betting. To conclude the review, Goal.com stated that Bwin’s welcome offer is well-structured, providing a valuable entry point for new users and demonstrating their commitment to customer satisfaction through innovative promotions and a user-friendly platform.

: Bwin sister sites have recently launched the exhilarating Beat the Legend promotion. The unmissable event invites football fans to engage in a prediction game for a chance to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with their football heroes. The promotion, which began on the 9th of February and runs until the end of May, allows participants to predict outcomes of UEFA Europa League and UEFA Europa Conference League matches to earn points and win substantial prizes. To participate, individuals must make predictions about match results from a selection of games during each of the eight rounds of the competition, with each round offering a different point system and cash prize potential. For instance, a correct match result awards points, with additional points for exact scores. Players can vie to surpass Robert Pirès’s predictions on the leaderboard and potentially secure a portion of the £50,000 available each match day. Moreover, the overall leader after all rounds could win a share of an impressive £100,000 prize pool.

Bwin Beat the Legend

A unique aspect of this promotion is the grand prize for the top four scorers. They will receive tickets to the UEFA Europa League Final in Dublin on the 22nd of May, followed by a chance to play on the pitch during the bwin Fans Final. This package includes return flights or train travel, accommodation, and match tickets, promising a memorable experience for the winners and their chosen guests. To ensure eligibility, participants must be over 18, residing in the UK, and must be registered real money players who can see the promotion post-login on one of the bwin platforms.

: Bwin’s latest article provides an in-depth analysis of the current Premier League relegation odds, offering insights and tips for bettors. Nottingham Forest, following their 1-0 defeat by Everton, now stands at 5/1 in Bwin’s relegation odds. This loss at the City Ground marks Forest’s third straight defeat, pushing them closer to the relegation zone. Everton, on the other hand, has seen a lift in spirits and form, moving to within two points of safety, with their odds for relegation now at 2/1. The article also covers Burnley’s impressive 8/13 odds after a resounding victory over Sheffield United, propelling them off the bottom of the table. This win at Turf Moor, Burnley’s biggest in the Premier League, has increased pressure on Sheffield United’s manager Paul Heckingbottom, with the Blades now the 1/16 favourites for relegation. The article further discusses the odds for other teams in the relegation battle, including Luton at 2/7, Bournemouth at 9/2, and Fulham at 8/1, despite their recent defeat at Liverpool.

Bwin’s coverage of the Premier League relegation battle is not just about the odds; it’s a comprehensive look at the teams’ performances, managerial pressures, and the impact of recent results on their survival chances. The article provides valuable insights for football fans and bettors, highlighting key factors that could influence the relegation race. For instance, it discusses the impact of managerial decisions, team morale, and the significance of upcoming fixtures for teams like Nottingham Forest and Sheffield United.

: Bwin has recently published an article focusing on the legendary golfer Tiger Woods as he makes a much-anticipated return to the PGA Tour at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas. Woods, who has been recovering from ankle surgery since April, has not played competitively since withdrawing from The Masters. At 47 years old, Woods is the host of the invitational event at Albany, and Bwin is offering odds of 66/1 for his victory on his return. The article also features a range of other betting specials for Woods in the first round, including 7/2 odds for him to birdie the first hole, 5/4 to make five or more birdies/eagles and 5/4 to shoot 71 or lower. In the overall Hero World Challenge betting, Woods is placed at 7/2 for a top-five finish and evens to make the top 10. The article provides a comprehensive look back at the highs and lows of Woods’ career, from his first major win at the 1997 Masters to his struggles with injuries and personal scandals.

Bwin Tiger Woods Comeback

The Bwin article delves into Tiger Woods’ storied career, highlighting his remarkable achievements and the challenges he has faced. It recalls his record 15-shot victory at the 2000 US Open and his historic ‘Tiger Slam’, where he held all four major titles simultaneously. The piece also reflects on Woods’ 2008 US Open triumph, achieved despite severe knee injuries, and his incredible comeback at the 2019 Masters. On the flip side, the article discusses the lows of Woods’ career, including the death of his father, personal scandals, injuries, and his DUI arrest. These moments paint a picture of a golfer who has experienced the zenith of professional success and the nadir of personal challenges.

: Bwin, which we’ve praised before for its comprehensive coverage of the football world, has recently looked into the history of the biggest points deductions in football, with a particular focus on Everton’s unprecedented situation in the Premier League. The article by Stuart Walker on Bwin’s website highlights Everton’s record Premier League points deduction due to a breach of financial rules on profit and sustainability. The Toffees, having lost £124.5m over three years, exceeded the permitted loss amount by £19.5m, resulting in a 10-point penalty. This is the largest deduction in English top-flight history and has plunged Sean Dyche’s team into the relegation zone. The article provides a historical perspective, noting that Everton is only the sixth team in the history of the English top flight to receive a points deduction, with previous instances including Portsmouth and Middlesbrough. The piece also touches on other clubs like Sunderland, Arsenal, and Manchester United, who have faced similar penalties in the past.

The article goes beyond just Everton’s current predicament, offering insights into the broader context of points deductions in football. It discusses the rarity of such penalties in the Premier League compared to the rest of the English football pyramid, citing examples like Luton Town’s 30-point penalty in 2008/09 and Leeds United’s 15-point sanction. The piece also explores the most severe sanctions in football history, particularly in Italy’s Serie A during the Calciopoli scandal, where clubs like Juventus faced harsh consequences. Furthermore, the article assesses the potential impact of Everton’s points deduction on their survival hopes. Despite the setback, Dyche’s team has shown promise this season, particularly in attack, and the article suggests they still have a strong chance of avoiding relegation.

: Bwin is all set to capitalise on the excitement surrounding the inaugural Las Vegas Grand Prix, a momentous event in the Formula 1 calendar. This weekend, the world of Formula 1 makes history with its first-ever race in Las Vegas, a city synonymous with spectacle and grandeur. The race, which is the third US event on the 2023 calendar, promises high-speed thrills as it winds through iconic landmarks like Caesars Palace and the Bellagio, down the famous Vegas Strip. The circuit is expected to rival the ‘temple of speed’ at Monza, suggesting a fast-paced and exhilarating race. Reigning world champion Max Verstappen, already with 17 wins this season and his third consecutive world title in the bag, is the favourite to win. His Red Bull car, known for its exceptional straight-line speed, seems perfectly suited for Vegas’s new challenge. However, the race presents unique conditions, with lower night-time temperatures posing a different kind of test for tyre management, an area where Red Bull has excelled all season.

Bwin Las Vegas Grand Prix

Bwin’s betting tips highlight some intriguing possibilities for the Las Vegas Grand Prix. While Verstappen leads the odds at 2/11, his teammate Sergio Perez is a longer shot at 16/1. The cooler conditions might favour Ferrari, known for their strong pace but often hard on tyres. Charles Leclerc, at 16/1, is determined to claim his first win of the season, while Carlos Sainz, the only non-Red Bull driver with a win this season, also stands at 16/1. An interesting bet is on Fernando Alonso, who recently showcased a dramatic return to form with a podium finish in Brazil. With his experience and the track’s potential to level the playing field, Alonso at 4/1 for a podium finish is a bet worth considering.

: Another week has gone by in the Premier League, and as ever, bwin is offering some intriguing betting options for football enthusiasts. Their Enhanced Accas feature provides price boosts on popular combinations from around the world, adding an extra layer of excitement to the betting experience. For instance, Arsenal, smarting from a controversial defeat, are expected to bounce back against Burnley with odds at 2/11, considering their unbeaten record at the Emirates Stadium this season. Newcastle, riding high on an unbeaten league run, are favoured at 13/20 to win against Bournemouth, a team still reeling from a heavy defeat at Manchester City. Crystal Palace and Everton, both finding their form, are predicted to draw at 11/5, a reflection of their recent performances and resilience.

Manchester United, under the guidance of Erik ten Hag, are tipped at 7/20 to overcome Luton, despite their recent struggles at Old Trafford. This prediction hinges on United’s ability to turn their home form around and capitalise on Luton’s weak away record. Wolves, facing Tottenham, are given odds of 21/10. Tottenham’s recent defeat to Chelsea and the suspension of key players could see Wolves, who have shown their mettle against top teams at home, emerge victorious. These predictions from bwin not only offer a glimpse into the potential outcomes of the matches but also highlight the depth and insight of their football analysis, making bwin a go-to source for detailed and informed Premier League betting insights.

: As the Premier League gears up for the weekend’s action, bwin is offering football fans a chance to win big with their predictions. This weekend, they’ve lined up a tantalising 108/1-plus accumulator, focusing on five key matches that could turn the tables in the league. For those who fancy a flutter, bwin’s Enhanced Accas provide price boosts on popular combinations, adding an extra layer of excitement to the weekend’s fixtures. The predictions kick off with Brentford, who are expected to continue their winning streak against West Ham, with odds of 21/20. Burnley’s clash with Crystal Palace offers another opportunity for a turnaround, with the former pegged at 33/20 to claim victory. Everton’s recent form suggests they could upset Brighton at 2/1 odds, while a draw between Newcastle and Arsenal is anticipated at 12/5, considering both teams’ strong performances. Finally, Wolves are favoured to win against Sheffield United with odds of 98/100, despite the absence of the injured Pedro Neto.

Bwin Weekend Picks

Bwin’s platform not only provides the thrill of the bet but also the expertise to guide punters through the Premier League’s unpredictable journey. With a comprehensive analysis of each game, bettors are equipped with all the necessary insights to make informed decisions.

Bwin Review 2024

Bwin has been on the internet since 1997 but hasn’t always been available in the UK. It started out as an Austrian betting website (the name is short for “bet to win”) and had a uniquely Austrian focus, but slowly spread out across mainland Europe. It was ElectraWorks that first spotted the potential of Bwin and brought it to the UK, but ElectraWorks no longer exists. With Bwin up for grabs, LC International Limited stepped in and snapped it up, adding it to a sports betting roster that already included both Ladbrokes and Coral. Is Bwin disappearing from view, eclipsed by its more illustrious neighbours? Or is it thriving and learning from the best in the business? It’s review time.

Bwin sister sites homepage

Bwin’s website works just as well on a laptop as it does on a mobile phone, but you don’t have to use your mobile browser if you’re playing at Bwin on a smaller screen. The official Bwin app is available through both Apple’s App Store and the Google Play Store for Android phones. It’s highly rated by those who use it.

Bwin Welcome Offer

Bwin’s welcome offer is pretty weak when you compare it to what’s up for grabs at the other sports betting websites under the LC International Limited umbrella. Rather than getting free bets – which tends to be par for the course with this network company – new players get a “backup bet.” How it works is that new players sign up, make a deposit of £10 or more, and then make a sports bet containing three or more selections up to a maximum value of £20. If they win, they receive their winnings as normal. If they lose, £20 is returned to them as a free bet. The bet cannot be split, so all £20 must be placed on a single fixture or event. The bet expires in seven days if it isn’t used. In practice, this means that a new player who wins with their first bet gets no welcome offer whatsoever. That’s hardly rolling out the red carpet.

Ongoing Promotions

We’re going to separate out the Bwin promotions here because some of the ongoing offers at this website pertain only to Bwin Casino or the poker part of the site. We have dedicated pages for those aspects of Bwin, whereas here, we’re concentrating only on Bwin as a sports betting website. Unfortunately, what we find when we dismiss those other promotions is that we’re not left with much in the way of substance. There’s no Bwin loyalty scheme. Existing players and newcomers at Bwin are treated in exactly the same way. We’re all for egalitarianism, but loyalty to a site should generally be rewarded, and it’s a shame Bwin doesn’t agree with that idea.

The most effective ongoing promotion at Bwin is “best odds guaranteed.” The offer relates only to horse racing, but it’s a guarantee that you won’t find better odds on any horse or any race anywhere in the UK or Ireland. Winnings on races covered by this guarantee are capped at £20,000, but if you can prove to Bwin that you’ve seen more favourable odds elsewhere, they’ll either match or beat those odds for you, no questions asked.

The only other offers of note at Bwin are prize draws and raffles, which sometimes include tickets to major events like the UEFA Europa League final. Taken as a whole, the promotions at Bwin lack sparkle.

What are the Pros and Cons of Bwin? 

Pros: We could be persuaded that the “backup bet” promotion at Bwin is a “pro” for the site because it at least means you get a second chance if your first bet as a Bwin customer comes back as a loser. The size and scope of the sportsbook is a positive, too, as every kind of sporting contest in the world is represented, and live odds on all major fixtures are available. Withdrawal turnaround times tend to be quick, too.

Cons: The overall lack of quality promotions at Bwin leave it looking and feeling second rate when compared to the bulk of the Bwin sister sites. Not only that, but the lack of a telephone number to call for customer support is a frustration. Many people on Trustpilot are crying out for better customer care from the company, and the addition of a phone number would perhaps mend some of the fences between Bwin and the people who spend money on its website.

This Bwin review page is about the main business of Bwin, which is sports betting. There’s no room for online slots here, nor any other types of casino betting.

The featured games at Bwin are whatever fixtures are in play right now, anywhere in the world. That might be Czech football, for example, or Slovakian ice hockey, or badminton in Denmark. We’re not making that up – we were offered in-play odds on all of those things when we visited Bwin to write this review. Every sport under the sun is covered at Bwin – and quite a few other things that you might not necessarily think of as sports are open for betting, too.

Chess is a permanent option on Bwin, so if you know a thing or two about this noble old board game, now’s the chance to put your money where your mouth is. Floorball is another Bwin oddity, as is Futsal and the catch-all category of “Gaelic sports.” Virtual versions of all major sports (including basketball) are provided if you can’t find anything you wish to place a bet on right now, and there are sub-categories for politics and entertainment. Bwin lets you turn almost the entire world into a game if you wish it to be so.

Deposit and Withdrawal Methods

The number of banking and withdrawal options at Bwin is impressive. There’s more range here than there is at most of the Bwin sister sites, which is possibly a legacy of Bwin’s time as a European-focused sports betting brand. We’ll start off with the basics, which are Maestro, Visa, and Mastercard debit cards. All of them are accepted, and all of them have a turnaround time of approximately 3-5 business days once a withdrawal has been requested. They’re slower even than an old-fashioned bank transfer, which is quoted as having a 2-4 business day turnaround.

By far the fastest way to get money out of Bwin is through an e-wallet, and you’re not short of options on that front. In no particular order, Bwin accepts iDebit, MoneySafe, Neteller, MuchBetter, PayPal, WebMoney, Skrill, and PaySafe. A withdrawal turnaround time of up to 24 hours is quoted for all of them. Please note that Bwin admits that it might sometimes take them up to two days to process a withdrawal request. If it does, that time gets added to the turnarounds quoted above.

Customer Support and License

Customer support is not the strongest aspect of the Bwin proposition. It’s difficult even to find customer support options, as the site will only offer them to you after you’ve looked up the relevant topic in the site’s FAQ and then clicked “yes” to the question, “Do you still need more help.” Only then will you be offered routes to live web chat, email support, or links to the Bwin Facebook and Twitter accounts to chat to somebody there. If you prefer to speak to people over the phone, you’re out of luck with Bwin – it isn’t an option. The bulk of bad reviews at Trustpilot for Bwin make reference to negative experiences with customer support. The addition of one phone number and a few people to answer calls might make a world of difference to the tone of those reviews.

Bwin’s licence to operate in the UK is held by LC International Limited with the UK Gambling Commission, account number 54743. The settlement of £14m that the operator paid to the UKGC was so enormous that it made the news in the UK, and happened because LC International Limited (Entain Plc) was found to have broken several key conditions of its licence, including failing to observe AML requirements and interacting with customers in a way that minimises risk.  The operator was allowed to keep its licence, and so the same licence still covers all of the Bwin sister sites.

Bwin – The Verdict

There are reasons why Bwin comes in a distant third to Ladbrokes and Coral among the sports-focused LC International Limited brands – it simply isn’t on the same level as the two bigger players. That’s especially evident when it comes to promotions and incentives, of which there are very few that could be considered worthwhile at Bwin. It’s still a strong sports betting website, but to use sporting terms, it’s chasing the European places in the Premier League table rather than competing for the championship.

Here are our condensed/reader’s digest summaries of recent player reviews of Bwin. They’re all genuine reviews, but we’ve edited the comments to keep them to the point.

  • 16-May-2024 by Kenzie:
    Landed £100 on the daily free spin wheel, but the page went white with “success” across it. When I checked my account, there was no money. Support told me I only won 3 free spins. Total scam. The wheel clearly landed on £100. Avoid this site. – source: Trustpilot
  • 30-Apr-2024 by Sean:
    These guys are scam artists. Tried a bet builder offer, but when I placed the bet, it changed my stake so I didn’t qualify. Live chat was useless. Bet somewhere else! – source: Trustpilot
  • 21-Mar-2024 by Franc:
    The worst site ever. – source: Trustpilot
  • 17-Mar-2024 by Fash:
    Signed up and was told I could deposit up to £150 before verifying. Next day, I couldn’t deposit anything without verification. Customer support gave no explanation. Completely unprofessional. – source: Trustpilot
  • 11-Mar-2024 by Lee:
    The poker site is rigged. Either the players are drunk or they’re AI. No bad beat protection, no bonus tickets. The card room needs investigating. Disgusting. – source: Trustpilot
  • 24-Feb-2024 by Lobsang:
    I wish I could give zero stars. Every time I win, the game gets blocked, and my winnings disappear. This has happened seven times. Worst casino ever. – source: Trustpilot
  • 09-Mar-2024 by Lily:
    Poor customer service. They remove bonuses unfairly and restrict stakes. They copy and paste the same responses and don’t answer questions. Feels like they want to encourage irresponsible gambling. – source: Trustpilot
  • 06-Feb-2024 by Benjamin:
    Worst site ever. I won £3k and they blocked my account and didn’t release my funds. Customer service is evasive. Avoid this site. – source: Trustpilot
  • 30-Jan-2024 by Daniel:
    They blocked my account after I won a bet. Customer service can’t tell me when I’ll get my money. Stay away. – source: Trustpilot
  • 22-Jan-2024 by Karne:
    Not a fair casino. You can’t win more than £30. The reels glitch, and features are rare. When you run out of money, the deposit box pops up, tempting you to lose more. Avoid. – source: Trustpilot

About Bwin and LC International Ltd

Bwin was first founded in 1997 and was originally named “betandwin” – a name that lasted right up until 2006 and was likely shortened for accessibility. It is an Austrian betting brand that is currently owned by LC International. On Bwin’s main site, the main focus is sports betting, but there are also casino, live casino, and poker sections available at the top of the home page. This shows that it is a multi-faceted brand and site. The first online gambling site within the Bwin group was released just one year after it was founded, to focus on the growing sports betting market. Overall, the company has over 20 million players around the world, so Bwin is definitely one of the biggest sports betting brands out there, alongside its competitors bet365 and William Hill.

LC International Ltd is one of the biggest sports-betting and gaming groups in the world, both online and in retail. It was founded in 2004 and owns a huge list of popular sports betting and casino brands. Alongside Bwin, some of these names include Coral, Foxy Bingo, and Ladbrokes.

Bwin Marketing and Advertising Campaigns

Bwin is no stranger to video advertising and marketing campaigns. Many of these video adverts can be found on its YouTube channel, which has over 83k subscribers and a grand total of 47.4 million views across the entire channel. Their most popular video on the channel has over six million views on its own, and it is titled “Real Madrid’s Bale, Benzema, Modric & Jese show amazing rugby skills!” The video was uploaded in 2013 and shows Gareth Bale joining up with his teammates for the Bwin Skills Series. The video showcases the famous footballers showing off their talent by performing trick shots with a rugby ball. The video is funny and light hearted and will appeal to many football fans. It does not necessarily promote the site, but with the Bwin logo appearing so frequently in the background, it may convince people to head over to the site and check it out for themselves.

Many of the videos on this channel are not in English, mainly because of the fact that Bwin is a global brand and appeals to many different audiences in a huge range of countries. One of the most popular videos on this channel that is an actual advertisement for the casino site is titled “Plongez dans le monde fascinant des machines à sous!” which is a French advert and roughly translates to “Immerse yourself in the fascinating world of slot machines!” The advert is all in reverse and shows a man being blasted off the toilet and through a wall into a casino where an elderly lady has just won big on Starburst. The man on the toilet can also be seen playing Starburst, and again is a humorous ad that will make you remember it, or even want to play.Bwin Advert

Bwin Sponsorships

Like their adverts and YouTube videos, Bwin has not stayed away from the world of sponsorships, with a whole roster of sponsorships and partnerships they have taken part in in the last decade. One of their first sponsorships was in 2007, where they sponsored the world-famous football team Real Madrid, and this sponsorship lasted until 2010. In 2010, Bwin announced a title sponsorship for the three seasons of the Portuguese League Cup. Italy’s second tier, Serie B, was also sponsored by them from July 2010 until 2012. Also, Bwin has partnered with the International Basketball Association and has been the sponsors for the European and World Basketball Championships since 2006. Bwin is also one of the main sponsors of the MotoGP series.

In recent years, Bwin have certainly not slowed down with the sponsorships. In 2017, Bwin signed a three-year deal with the Italian football club Inter Milan to become their first official betting partner. In 2019, Bwin then became Valencia CF’s main sponsor. In 2020, Bwin announced a deal with the Belgian Pro League, to become the official sports betting partner of Belgium’s top football division, this deal covers the Belgian First Division B and Belgian Super Cup. In April 2021, Bwin signed a deal with Liga Portugal and as part of this deal, the Primeira Liga will be called Liga Portugal Bwin, as of July 2021 and onwards. In August 2021, Bwin signed deals with a handful of German Bundesliga football clubs, including Borussia Dortmund and Union Berlin. Bwin will serve as the main sports betting provider for each team. These deals are set to run from 2021 until the end of the 2023-24 season. In September 2021, Bwin signed a deal with UEFA to become an Official Partner of the UEFA Europa League as well as the UEFA Europa Conference League for the 2021-24 seasons.
