The Sport Guys
Bwin is the largest betting company that is publically traded on the stock market. Since their formation in 1997, the company has gone on to sponsor football giants Real Madrid, AC Milan and Bayern Munich, as well as basketball teams New Jersey Devils and Philadelphia 76’ers.
Here is a company that is very much in the public eye. Besides sponsoring major sporting teams, they also sponsor tournaments, most notably the European and World Basketball Championship, something they have had the honour of doing since 2006.
Away from sponsorships, Bwin own PartyPoker, which is now the third largest poker room in the world.
Layout of the website
Bwin’s homepage is extremely easy to navigate. Upon entering the website you will see their combi section. This is found at the top-centre and offers customers enhanced odds on a range of combination bets that are available to play.
Beneath the combi section you will find the football betting highlights for the action coming up. With the Premier League being the most popular league in the world, it is naturally at the top, followed by the Irish league and the International leagues.
To the right of the highlights, you will find the live in-play betting. What differentiates Bwin’s in-play from other competitors is that their in-play isn’t solely focused on football; basketball and tennis can be found on there on most occasions. The live betting page itself is extremely easy to use.
Also, on the right hand pane you will find your betslip, a link to the casino and a link to their bestselling bets.
Over on the left pane, at the top you will find the most popular football markets. This is immediately followed by a favourites section, where you can add all your favourite sports or leagues to make your experience as streamlined as possible.
