Bwin betting program

Wettangebot In terms of betting offer, we will evaluate the covered ones Sports and competitions. The scope of the types of bets is just as important. Finally, we take a look at what our competitors have to offer.

Bwin is one of the best bookmakers in this category, even if a few things are no longer offered due to the Kenyan State Treaty on Gambling (more on that in a moment). There is a total of between 25 and 30 sports to choose from.

In Kenya, Bet-at-home, Bet365 and Unibet also mix in this class, whereby Bet365 with more than 30 sports is number 1 .

The A-Z menu gives the user an overview of all sports

The focus is of course on football, because it is simply the most popular sport, especially in Europe. Here, of course, the largest European top leagues from Spain, England, France and Italy are initially available. In addition, you can also find the highest divisions from countries such as Colombia, Chile, Bulgaria or Finland.

But apart from football, the betting portfolio can also be seen with many fringe sports. For example, table tennis, chess, snooker or floorball are also available. The bwin betting offer is something for everyone - even for inexperienced users. At bwin, everyone can find their sports and bets.

And regardless of the type of sport, bwin doesn't have to shy away from being compared with others when it comes to betting types. The games in the top soccer leagues are in the three-digit range.

Bwin E-Sports Wetten

But what the bookmaker does no longer leads in the betting program is esports. The rules of the Kenyan State Treaty on Gambling prohibit categories that are not a real sport. These include e-sports, virtual sports, entertainment betting and political betting. However, that affects everyone who offers bets in Kenya.

Bwin Live Betting

Live Wetten In our "Live Betting" section, the same criteria apply as in the general betting program: number of sports and competitions. In addition, there is the number of games and types of bets.

The sports betting provider really does trumps when it comes to live bets and provides its customers with a unique live betting area. Only Unibet and Bet365 reach this level as well.

The betting enthusiasts have access to one of the largest live betting offers among all betting providers. Even for less popular matches, up to 50 live betting tip options are offered.

In general, our Bwin sports betting test showed that the live betting sector is implemented almost perfectly, both technically and visually.

Bwin football bets are also the most popular among live bets. But betting fans can also look forward to a large selection of live bets in other sports. The bookie does not stop at the most unpopular leagues. This creates the conditions for live betting around the clock.

While the experienced tipsters can quickly find their way around the live center, the beginners will have to get used to the crowd. Over time, however, they should have internalized the whole thing.

Bwin Live Betting Sports

In addition to football, the following sports are most strongly represented in the live betting area:

  • Tennis
  • Basketball
  • Ice hockey
  • Table tennis
  • Volleyball
  • Badminton

Bwin Live Streams

The bookmaker is also through became known for its abundance of live streams. Unfortunately, they are no longer offered in Kenya.

Bwin is going its own way and does not want to risk anything with regard to the Kenya license and the associated regulations. The live streams are available in Austria.

Bwin betting odds

Wettquoten A check of the betting odds should not be missing in any bookmaker test report. Interesting here are the payout key and the attractiveness of the odds compared to the competition.

With its betting odds, bwin can look back on its very good performance in the others Do not join categories. Because with average payout rates of around 93 percent, you are far behind the best when it comes to betting odds.

Bwin odds experience

In addition, there are also large fluctuations in betting odds, which are up and down go down and from highs to certain exits, bwin is also a bit away. High odds of favorites are nil.

The bookmaker best rates the Premier League - with a key of 95%. The Kenya Bundesliga is behind with starting rates of 93 to 94%. However, we were able to determine an increase to approx. 95% as the games get closer.

bwin Quoten

Four days before the start of the game, the 3-way odds for Mainz - Augsburg are approx. 94%

Die Crème de la Créme im Top-Fußball sind Bet3000 with odds of up to 98% and Unibet + Bet365 with up to 97%.

In tennis, the odds depend on the tournament. The Grand Slam tournaments achieve a good 96%, the other tournaments are lower.

For less frequented sports and leagues, bwin often works with payout keys that are below 93 percent. Positive outliers upwards can be found in particular for fringe sports such as baseball or American football, for which Bwin generally has above-average odds.

Basically, however, there are significant fluctuations in the betting odds offered and therefore a comparison of the betting odds is always worthwhile. Nonetheless, those who are looking for the highest odds are rather out of place at bwin.

Bwin Sports Betting Bonus

Wettanbieter Bonus With a new customer bonus, the terms and conditions of the bonus and the amount of the bonus should be coordinated. And free spins mustn't become a difficult mission. We took a closer look at the bonus from bwin.

The betting provider is of course trying to attract new customers and is constantly designing new Bwin campaigns for them. Currently, new customers can look forward to a cashback bonus, which is granted up to a maximum of 100 euros and which goes into the race as a so-called joker bet.

The joker bet is worthwhile for tipsters who would like to take risks, as they are protected with the joker bet anyway. In order to make a decent profit, there is no way around a higher rate. Because only the net profit is paid out.

The design of the bonus is sure to be simple and easy to understand for everyone. However, we don't think it's great that bwin only benefits the “losers”. How to do it differently is shown, for example, by the Bet365 Bonus or the Unibet Bonus.

Bwin betting tax

Wettsteuer When it comes to betting tax, the betting operator Bwin has also had to pass 5% on directly to the Kenyan state for all sports bets accepted in Kenya since July 2012.

The bookie has decided not to charge customers with this betting tax when placing bets. If you place your bet, the full amount will be wagered.

If a customer is correct with his bet, however, the bookie retains 5 percent of the gross profit and only posts the difference, after deduction of betting tax, to the betting account of the customer. This is a fair and widespread way of dealing with betting tax.

Bwin customer support

Wettanbieter Kundensupport We are of the opinion that a modern betting company has at least the contacts e-mail and live chat should. You can find out how bwin is set up here.
