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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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 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.
