Winner Review

winnerWe all dream of being a winner don’t we?  Well this sports betting site can’t guarantee that you will be a winner, no one can do that but it is a fantastic site that really has a fantastic amount to offer.

It’s full of betting opportunities and as for the loyalty rewards on offer, well that’s definitely a winner.  This is a serious betting site for people who want proper betting opportunities and good rewards for regular wagers.  Brilliant for horse racing, football, gold an tennis especially.

Sports Offer – £200 Deposit Bonus

There’s a maximum matched bonus of £200 available when you join the Winner sports betting site. Just sign up to the site, not a task that is going to cause you too much hassle you’ll be glad to read, and then make your first deposit on the site.

It has to be at least £30 which is a bit higher than on some sites but you’ll receive a 100% matched bonus all the way up to a £200 bonus.  As I’ve said this site is aimed at proper punters not those after a quick £5 freebie.

Before withdrawal you need to have settled bets to the value of eight times your deposit and bonus in 14 days. Bets must contain at least one selection of odds of at least evens an no higher than 10/1 in order to count towards that wagering requirement.

The highest amount that can be converted from cash from your bonus balance is £2,000. The maximum bet able to be staked with your first deposit and bonus is £50 per bet, per event.

Terms & Conditions Apply. New Customers (18+) Only.

Casino Offer – 200% up to £300

Similar to the sports offer the casino introductory deal is also for more serious players giving a 200% bonus up to £300, although there is a £35 minimum (which would give a £70 bonus).

The best bit about the casino offer is it is open to all customers so if you like you can claim both the sports and casino offer.  The bonus comes with a 35x wagering requirement of the depsoit and bonus amount, for full terms or to claim click below.

Markets and Odds

Visiting a sports betting site isn’t something that you ever want to be dull. Well don’t worry about that happening at this site because it’s non-stop action all the time with events to bet on from all over the world regardless of what time it is with Winner.

From the moment you arrive on the home page you will love the sheer choice of markets, but without having a cluttered look to it. The site has absolutely tons of betting opportunities and more information available than with most other bookmakers. You’ll see detials about the events taking place right now, those soon to start and the top events of the coming week.

Sports galore are covered on this site, it’s got everything from the usual suspects of football, cricket and horse racing to the slightly less popular handball and bowls. Whatever the sport is and its level of popularity, you’ll find plenty of events to be placing bets on.

Long gone are the days when all you could do with a football game is bet on who’s going to win, lose or draw. At Winner you can have nearly 150 different markets to try and win some cash on. Everything from how many corners to whether a team will win from behind.  During the football season you’ll find lots of different coupons you can make selections on.

Horse racing fans can follow all the action from the UK and Ireland as well as virtual racing. Great to look at but I prefer to bet on something that has a pulse to be honest. Not much international coverage here though apart from when there are big races on such as the Breeders Cup and top French races.

There’s plenty of stateside action to follow on the site. Fans of basketball, American Football, baseball and ice-hockey will always have something to keep them occupied in the early hours of the night.

When it comes to odds, you will find that Winner can be very competitive. Keep an eye out for the enhanced prices and just hope it’s for a selection that you really think is going to win.  When there’s a big match on Winner always seem to have some really attractive special prices that could get you some good wins.

You might wake up wanting to bet on just the top events but what about the ones that you see and had never even thought about?  It could be something from a reality show or a sport that you don’t often decide to have a bet on. Such bets can be really fun and if you’re like me, then it really adds a bit of personal interest to the event, i.e. seeing it win me some cash.

Bets that might not be the first to come into your head include:

  • Who will win the Grand Prix Bowls tournament?
  • Who’s going to be the next leader of the Labour party

If you want to place some ante-post bets then you will find a great selection for you to choose from. There are plenty of them in all the sports that Winner cover. So if you think you know who’s going to win the World Cup (probably not England) then get your bet on now.

Live Betting

Ante post betting is great fun and can be really profitable but what about right now rather than the future? If you really want some excitement when you log into a sports betting site then it’s live sports betting that will provide that for you.

I love that moment when the cheering starts and you see that a team has scored a goal, hopefully it’s one you have some money on. That’s just one of the great experiences you can expect to have when betting on live action at Winner.

There’s a whole stack of live action going on at Winner and it doesn’t matter what time of the day it is. Those bleary eyes will be following all the late night action in the USA and South America, the morning events in the Far East and then there’s all the other European events throughout the day and evening.

Whether it’s football, tennis or golf, there always seems to be something going on. All those fluctuating odds as the game progress give you plenty of betting opportunities.

Live Streaming

It’s good to be able to see the live action as it actually happens. Live streaming isn’t a strong point at all of this site at present. Hopefully in time they will be able to get some live coverage on the site.

At least they do have lots of live events to bet on and a live scores service. You can watch live horse racing which is always bound to provide some thrills.

Winner Promotions

There’s a whole stack of promotions available on this site. It’s certainly a good job that there is a page dedicated to all of them. Make sure that when you log into the site you check out that page so you don’t miss anything.

VIP Cashback

Here’s the chance to get some of any Net losses you’ve suffered during the week. Net losses being Losses -Winnings- bonuses given. This runs from Monday to Sunday and any amount due to you ends up in your account on Monday.

The minimum payment is £5 and the maximum £2000. This is paid in free bet tokens that have to be used over the next seven days at odds between evens and 10/1 with the free bet not included in any returns. Any cash back on losses is good by me. In order to be eligible for this offer you have to deposit at least £500 a month so perhaps not ideal for the smaller level customers.

Horse Racing

Beaten By a Head /  Faller Inurance

So near yet so far. It’s so frustrating when your tip gets beaten by a head.  Well if that happens  to you during the flat season on this site you’ll receive your stake back as a free bet. The minimum stake is £5.  If your horse falls during the jump season get your win stakes refunded too.

Lucky Streak

If your luck is really in then you can get some excellent bonuses at Winner. An all-correct Lucky 15 receives a 10% bonus, for a Lucky 31 that goes up to 20% and with a Lucky 63 it’s a very handy 25%. Alternatively if your bet only gets one winner then they’ll double the price of that sole winning selection.

Football

Acca Club

One of the best bookmakers in the world for football accumulator betting.  All football accumulators with 6 or more teams comes with insurance on stakes up to £25 if one selection lets you down.  if all your teams do win its even better as you get a automatic 25% accumulator bonus on 6 fold footy acca that increases 5% each extra selection you add in up to 50% for a 10+ fold.

If that wasn’t enough place four of more 4-fold football accumulators each week with a minimum stake of £5 or more and Winner will give you a £5 free acca bet each Monday.  Why would you place your acca’s anywhere else?

Loyalty Bonuses

Here’s a real strength of this site. There are loyalty bonuses available on horse racing, tennis and football, the three most popular sports on the site.

If you place 20 £10 horse racing bets, or In-Play Football / Tennis / NFL / NBA / MLB / NHL / Snooker / Darts,  on your mobile at odds greater than Evens, then you’ll receive a £10 free bet token.

You can receive up to 20 bonuses each month. The value of the free bet is 5% of your total stake on those qualifying bets. The free bets have to be used on your mobile and again there’s that Evens to 10/1 price restriction. A good bet though and a big incentive to use their mobile site (more about that soon).

Golf

This is a top golf bookie and there is always a golf offer avialble.  At the time of writing you could get two promotions, first get money back if you back a player to win a tournament outright and they finish 2nd or 3rd.

Also get acca insurance on all PGA and European tour 2/3 ball multiples with four or more selections.

Tennis/US Sports Accumulator Bonuses

Get a double up on a tennis bet or a US Sports bet involving basketball, US Football, Baseball or Ice Hockey and a bonus will be heading in your direction.

It’s only 5% but every penny counts doesn’t it? The bonuses keep on climbing through to 30% for a successful eight-fold bet all the way up to 50% for a bet that has 12 correct selections.

Cash Out

Why wait for that final whistle before getting a return from your bet? After all if it doesn’t go well for you there might not even be a return to receive. With Cash Out you can end your bet when you want. Handy if you’re not sure your selection can hold onto that lead they have so perfect for England football games.

Also look out for lots of enhanced prices available on top games that you can bet on at Winner. Always handy to put a bit more money into your account.

Statistics

You need lots of help with statistics on a site like this because there’s just so much going on. The site does have a live scores section which is really helpful. There’s also a statistics page that covers all the sports on the site and has lots of information such as recent results and league tables.

All really helpful when sorting out those bets of yours especially if on obscure sports or overseas football leagues.  Again an example of how Winner are serious about their betting.

Desktop Site

This is a site that has absolutely tons packed into it. That’s always a bit dangerous in terms of how it affects presentation. You can overload the site and make it so cluttered it becomes unattractive to looks at and finding anything is a nightmare.

That’s not the case here. This is a well presented site and I’ve never had any problems finding anything. It’s a good idea though to have a good look round when you join and get to know where everything is first.

The home page is packed with information and just a click will send you quickly into your required direction. This includes details of the top events coming up in the centre of the page. On the left hand side of the page you’ll see a list of all the sports covered and you can put your most favoured sites down as your favourites making it even quicker to get to them.

There are also some quick links to the top events and links to help pages and their Facebook and Twitter pages, both definitely worth liking and following.

Mobile Site

You’ll want to be able to play on this site as much as you possibly can to take advantage of the mobile loyalty offers from Winner. You can enjoy all the in-play betting and other features that you can on the main site.
