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.
