With already established casino, poker and bingo areas of the business Winner have recently decided to compete in the world of sports betting and launch Winner Sports. With such a great track record in their already established gaming avenues we can be sure that Winner will be a bookmaker that are likely to stick around and care about offering us good customer service.
Very impressive website
In terms of odds, Winner are competitive and they’d have to be if their mantra is to create winners and provide them with a great user experience. The site layout is excellent and has a good feel in terms of navigation and usability which makes placing your bet very simple.
Competitive in-play and pre-match odds
Winner offer very competitive odds on all the top sports pre-match and in-play. The odds on football that we checked put Winner in the top 3 or 4 prices out of all the best well-known bookmakers. I checked their prices on the tennis too and they were also competitive, often the joint top price and other times bang in the middle but never near the worst end of the prices available.
All the tops sports but lack of depth in markets
Winner cover a lot of spots including football, tennis, horse racing, golf etc but there aren’t yet as many markets on these sporting events as other established bookmakers in this game but then you’d expect that in these early days and I’m sure this will only improve.
Great offers but only available to UK customers
Winner have a promotions section dedicated to all their current offers which makes it easy to check all the latest offers available. Some of the current ones include Multiple Insurance where you get a free bet if 1 lets you down, Seventh Heaven where they give you 25% bonus on winning 7-folds and Lucky Streak which is similar to Seventh Heaven and offer you various levels of bonuses depending on the number of winners you get. Unfortunately the sign up bonuses are only available to UK customers and you can’t use Moneybookers.
First deposit bonus requires 5 deposits
When you sign up to winner sports you are eligible for a free bet up to £50 depending on your original stake. This seems like a very good offer but you do have to stake your initial deposit 5 times to get the free bet. So you would have to make a £10 bet 5 times before getting a £10 free bet and 5 lots of £50 bets to get the free £50 bet. The minimum odds also have to be 1.5 for each of your qualifying bets. It’s still an ok offer as free bets go and a lot of other bookmakers are going down the route of requesting that free bets are played through in some way now.
All the standard payment and withdrawal methods are included by Winner such as Bank Transfer, UKash, Skrill, Credit Cards, WebMoney, Neteller, Nordea and unless you still trade using gold pieces I can’t imagine there isn’t a method that meets your requirements!
Great customer service
The live chat functionality that Winner provide is very useful and it always pleases us punters when we can get instant access to our queries and problems are resolved quickly. We’re told that the service isn’t guaranteed to be 24-7 but when we had a query about the bonus they responded immediately and this is a good sign. If you can’t get hold of anyone on chat email firstname.lastname@example.org and you should receive a timely response.
In summary, we’re very impressed with Winner’s site and how competitive their odds are. The free bet isn’t quite as good as it first appears and is perhaps a little complicated but we think winner is a decent trustworthy bookmaker and a good addition to the list of reputable bookmakers out there.
