Bwin were founded in 1997 in Vienna, Austria, before launching its online betting website just one year later. Its formation of the live bet format was instrumental in forging their status as one of the best online gambling sites, and in 2001 they implemented a casino gaming format. Having been placed on the stock market, Bwin formed with PartyGaming in 2011, becoming Bwin.Party Digital Entertainment. They are one of the most well-known betting sponsors in football, having been partnered with Real Madrid from 2007-2013, as well as being tied with Bayern Munich and previously AC Milan.
Deposit & Withdrawals
As expected, Bwin offer a variety of different currencies to both deposit and withdraw in. This goes alongside the standard use of debit/credit cards, as well as standard bank transfer. One interesting feature is that they used to ask for identification during your first withdrawal, though due to other competitors not implementing this, they have since removed this. The max deposit is around £10,000 for most methods, though BankTransfer can be up to £70,000.
Bwin’s customer service is one of the best around, with the Help and Contact section easy to access in the top left of the screen. The pop-out window leading to the FAQ is extensive. They are, however, not 24/7 with their telephone details only going from 10am to 10pm, meaning those in Europe betting on foreign markets such as NBA will prove difficult should a problem arise. Their live help, on the other hand, is very good.
