bwin claims to offer the world’s largest sports betting platform with over 90 different sports available to bet on, including the big ones for the site: football, tennis and basketball.
The user can choose between a wide variety of tournaments, leagues and matches. Bwin offers betting on the popular Ultimate Fighting Championship, boxing and other combat sports. Following a wager, the customer can follow their favourite sports by accessing bwin’s live streaming facility.
Comprehensive coverage of UK sport is paramount to the site except for horse racing which is not prioritised like other sports. You get little more than the horse’s name, jockey, trainer, age and weight plus of course the betting. It would not do for a regular racing punter who needs a steer and is crying out for a partnership with a racing information provider.
There is of course coverage of all the main football leagues around the world plus every other sport you could wish to bet on – most with many subsections.
bwin Live Streaming And Content
Much like most of the other big company’s bwin has embraced the demand for live streaming content with a wide selection of events available following the placing of a bet. A video icon is highlighted alongside a contest where live streaming is available. The stream plays directly above your betting slip while ‘Live Markets’ are visible on the main body of the menu.
The video is also available to view with the ‘full screen’ facility.
There is however no live audio (commentary or radio) meaning coverage is not provided on Premier League matches and there is no continuous horse racing and greyhound radio.
Possibly one of the best features of the bwin site is the in-play facility which appears to be one of the most up to the minute portals on the web.
The markets are available across a high number of sports. In-play football for instance has a high-tech drop down menu offering stats, scores and ‘flow of the game’ animation that you can sit back and watch. It could be further enhanced by an audio overlay.
If you click ion a live game it opens up to present an exciting page showing the status of lots of in-play markets in spellbinding fashion.
bwin Stats And Form
This is another stand-out part of the site with the football fan more than well-catered for.
As previously mentioned the first column offers a stats tool that when clicked enables the user to view a staggering amount of facts and figures to assist in the betting experience.
Fans can click Europe – England – Premier League for instance and gain access to individual clubs, tables, teams, players, head to heads, and fixtures as well as a divisional overview of scorers, discipline and injury stats.
