QuinnBet is the new name on the block as far as bookmakers are concerned and the website can be accessed via desktop, mobile, tablet or via their new app on an iOS or Android device.
The company only accepts customers that have residential status in Great Britain, Northern Ireland or Ireland and company is predominantly based in Ireland.
With so many ways to access the site, it has clearly been a well-financed operation to get themselves up and running without any apparent teething problems and the thought that has gone into the app and mobile site makes them an appealing proposition, particularly for their younger customers.
Owner Sean Quinn, a former Billionaire and someone who was Ireland’s richest man before the financial crisis in 2008, is seemingly the brains behind the operation. The rags to riches business mogul made his fortune in the building industry before moving into the world of hospitality where he went on to own a chain of hotels.
His fortunes took a huge downfall in the financial crisis of 2008. When the Anglo-Irish Bank nearly collapsed, the family lost at least two and a half Billion euros and eventually led to Quinn’s bankruptcy in January 2012.
QuinnBet is partnered with the British company FSB Technology who designed the website as well as much of the software involved with odds compiling. Part of the industry for the last 15 years or so, the company is privately owned and backed by the founders of Betfair and Sportingbet.
FSB Technology have been particularly impressive in tailoring their software to different companies to give each website or app a unique feel and they have become one of the major players in the global marketplace. With FSB Technology progressing at quite a rate, QuinnBet would appear to have partnered with a savvy outfit capable of holding their own in the gaming community.
QuinnBet could have more of a presence as far as their social media is concerned with less than 1,500 followers on Twitter at the time of writing and it’s not something that has been addressed in recent times as their sporadic approach to their social platforms suggest. Interaction on this sort of platform is certainly something that the company will want to improve upon if they’re going to mix it with the likes of Paddy Power and bet365 and it’s surprising that there isn’t more links to media content or offers on their timeline rather than simple links to a betting market.
Pros and Cons of QuinnBet
- A wide range of football markets
- Fast app for customers on mobile or tablet
- Relatively competitive odds
- Desktop site isn’t easy to use and could be more attractive
- Limited additional content - lack of blogs, streaming, tipping
- Could create more of a betting community
- Poor sign-up/welcome offers
QuinnBet may be relatively new and yet to get a real foothold in the market but they’re a long way ahead of some of their rivals with regards to their mobile site and betting app.
With it being easy to use and relatively quick, it will be no surprise to see the company grow at a fast rate in what is a crowded market place with usability a key feature in any sportsbook/online casino betting site. The desktop site could be slicker and seems particularly “busy” but in these times, it’s less of a priority than getting mobile/app services spot on.
Racing fans will be pleased to see the bookmakers paying best odds guaranteed on British and Irish racing as well as ante-post markets well into next season, offering plenty of competitive prices.
There’s a number of promotions on the website but the Bet 10 Get 40 could be more competitive given €20 of the 40 has to be used as a Casino Bonus and it’s limited to Ireland and Northern Ireland. There is definitely room for improvement in this area.
QuinnBet’s User Interface
The set-up of the website has a familiar feel to it and with the various tabs and menu options, it’s easy to navigate around as far as the mobile and app are concerned. The desktop site has clearly been designed with mobile in mind and appears a little busy but is still usable.
On mobile, it couldn’t be much easier to navigate around. The menu button is fixed to the bottom left corner of the page and it’s simple enough to flick between different sports.
Many of the in-play markets are on the left, while racing fans will enjoy the fact their sport takes centre stage with cards for upcoming races in the middle of the page. A list of key upcoming events is on the right of the homepage and again makes life easy for the punter.
The predominantly green, white and black colour scheme is attractive, with the main betting options easily accessible across a bar near the top of the page.
All the football markets are distinguished between leagues, making it easy to find which match to bet on and it’s simple to build accumulators with just one tap of the odds.
The FSB Technology software comes into its own when using the app and it couldn’t be much easier to use, with a very similar feel to the mobile site.
Racing fans will be particularly pleased with the set-up. Not only is there an extensive list of ante-post racing to bet on, including markets for next season’s Classics, the day to day navigation makes it very easy to flick between up and coming races.
Betting Markets with QuinnBet
There’re over 20 sports to bet on, without going into specials markets, virtuals or casino games and they range from Basketball to Gaelic Hurling.
All the big betting sports such as football, tennis, racing and greyhound racing are all there with extensive coverage from all different levels/leagues. Football and horse racing would appear to be a big pull for customers and as one might expect, many of the sign-up offers and specials are geared towards these fans.
Their prices would appear competitive and in line with other sportsbooks they will be competing for business with, without being overly generous.
QuinnBet Bonuses and Offers
All QuinnBet’s offers are listed under the banner Promotions in which features two welcome offers, five weekly specials, four racing offers, a couple of football offers and three from other sports.
The sign up/welcome offer could be more competitive. Bet 10 Get 40 seems okay at first but when digging down through the terms of the offer, it’s only a €20 free bet on the sports book and a €20 casino bonus and it’s limited to Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
The offer that’s limited to England, Wales and Scotland is Bet 10 Get 10 with half of that required to be spent in the online casino.
Accumulator fans will be happy with the weekly special as 60% extra can be used as a free bet on a winning accumulator. Free Spins are the feature of some other offers.
The Loyalty Program is the one that catches the eye with the Promotions Team reviewing accounts on a weekly basis and are willing to offer up to 14% of what’s been staked each week whether customers have won or lost.
All Races, Every Day – Money Back Special should be popular with racing fans. If your horse finishes runner-up to the SP favourite, £10/€10 is credited as a free bet. However, it’s disappointing that if the SP favourite is shorter than 6/4, the offer no longer applies.
Football fans will be delighted with the Injury Time Insurance with a more generous refund of up to €20 and the same goes for No Goal, No Worries with both returned as free bets.
QuinnBet Content (Live Streaming, Audio Commentary, Radio, Blogs, and Previews)
Supplementary content clearly isn’t a priority for QuinnBet. There had been no blogs/previews/tips added for nearly six months and bar virtual sports, there is no streaming provided.
There’s plenty to like about the in-play betting and in particular, the simple nature of it. Betting in-play is often slow, clumsy and difficult but customers will be glad to hear it could hardly be easier with bets added to a betslip immediately.
The standard over/under and correct score markets are available on sports such as football and tennis and some punters may enjoy the lack of complexity and the ease of use offered by QuinnBet.
QuinnBet Stats & Form
Stats and Form are again quite clearly not a priority for this bookmaker. It’s quite possible this will come with time given that they are fairly new to the market but there’s very little to go on at this stage.
QuinnBet Banking and Withdrawal
QuinnBet have a wide range of ways of punters to deposit funds into accounts. The debit/credit cards accepted are MasterCard, Visa, Visa Debit, Visa Electron and Maestro. Those who would prefer to transfer funds via eWallets have the options of Skrill and Neteller. Most customers will be satisfied with this range of payment methods.
Deposits are only accepted within the UK, Northern Ireland and Ireland and the minimum withdrawal amount that can be paid is £10.
QuinnBet Customer Satisfaction
No news is good news as far as QuinnBet’s customer satisfaction is concerned. The app hasn’t received enough reviews on the app store as of yet to have a rating but there have been very few complaints made publicly to the company on social media, which is something they will be delighted with.
As far as contacting the firm, options would appear limited. The only email they have on site is their [email protected] but they can be found on Twitter @quinn_bet or on Facebook.
A lack of a live chat option is also something they may want to look into as the company grows.
QuinnBet Mobile App
The app is one of QuinnBet’s most attractive features and it works in a similar fashion to how the site is displayed on mobile.
Easy to navigate as well as fast and responsive, it will prove to be a pleasant surprise for new customers and its simplicity is its major strength.
The mainly black, white and green colour scheme is attractive and draws you in, while for punters keen to bet on the go, the prominence of the popular sports at the top of the app’s homepage makes it easy to find in-play bets.
A bar across the bottom of the page makes it easy to find longer-term markets and overall QuinnBet’s offering is enough to rival many of the industry leaders.

Our Opinions of QuinnBet
An up and coming bookmaker and still in the early stages but their partnership with FSB Technology should hold them in good stead and they have made a promising start.
With the user-friendly interface of the app and mobile site, there’s plenty to like about navigating around the various betting markets and there’s a comprehensive list of sports to choose from.
Very little content on the site and a limited profile across social networks leave room for improvement but it’s still early days. There sign-up/welcome offers also need to be looked at.
- Good app/mobile site usability
- Comprehensive Sportsbook
- Limited content on the site
