Winner Sports Review
Established in 2011 and licensed on Antigua and Barbuda, Winner Sports are a Canadian-friendly bookmaker who offer much in the way of value for those based here. It isn’t enough just to open your doors to North American customers as there is some competition even though the market remains a restricted one so what is there on offer to entice you in?
In terms of an introductory bonus this is only available to players in the UK and the Republic of Ireland so if you are just sizing Winner up with a view to taking an early offer, you will need to look elsewhere.
The value comes from an ongoing promo and strong prices which we will cover as we move through this review so it is worth hanging around in the long term.
Deposit and Withdrawal Methods
Paypal leads the list of available payment options and this will be good news to players all over the world. It’s the most popular eWallet around but it’s just part of a huge overall list that includes Skrill, Neteller, PaySafeCard, EcoPay, Poli, ClickandBuy and many more.
This large roster gives you real flexibility when it comes to depositing and withdrawing but you can also make use of traditional methods such as Bank Transfer and all the major Debit and Credit cards.
There is a first deposit bonus offer at Winner Sports with a minimum deposit of $30 CAD and you will be entitled to a 100% bonus on your qualifying deposit up to a maximum of $200 CAD. Bets must contain at least one selection at odds of at least Evens (2.00) and no greater than 10/1 (11.00) in order to count towards any turnover requirements. You must settle the bets to the value of 8 times your first deposit and bonus before making a withdrawal. Keep in mind, this bonus is not available for players from Brazil.
This is a very ‘busy’ website and if there is one observation to make in terms of downsides, there can be too much information on here, Winner list all the current betting options and at times there can be so many games coming up that it’s hard to find the one you want from the middle of the page.
Other than the central part of this site, it is relatively easy to follow with the help options clearly marked and where you would expect them to be. Overall, it’s a mixed review, but once you get used to the Winner site you should have no problems moving around it.
Winner’s support section can be found on the left hand side of the home page and if you scroll to about half way down you will locate it. The best news for most customers is the presence of a live chat operator who is on hand 24 / 7 to answer your queries in the shortest possible space of time.
Alternatives are also here and you can email customer support. Strangely there is no obvious set of frequently asked questions but in this digital age they are not always helpful or even popular so the email and live chat should cover everything that you need.
The good news keeps on coming with this list of available markets, which is one of the widest among any sportsbook.
Football, Horse Racing, Tennis, American Football, Australian Rules Football, Baseball, Basketball, Boxing, Cricket, Cycling, Darts, Golf, Greyhound Racing, Handball, Ice Hockey, MMA, Motorsport, Olympic Games, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Snooker, Table Tennis, Volleyball.
That’s clearly quite an extensive list and one that provides options for leagues that involve Canadian teams such as MLS, MLB and NHL while, on a wider scale, there are global sports such as tennis and golf that are popular all over the world.Esports and specials for entertainment and major political events are also quoted for so this is another positive with a good mix of popular and niche punts.
Winner Sports have been included on the main odds comparison sites for some time now so when you come to compile a parlay bet, you can easily check their prices and see how they compare with the other outlets.
In general, they are very strong for most events but on football in particular, they are very hard to beat. Winner will also list a frequent set of price boosts on multiples and they are worth checking too.
In Play Options
Winner have a separate link at the top left of their home page which will take you straight to all the in play options that are available at any given time. It’s a busy set of markets, even on the quietest days and times of the week and there are good options for side betting if you want to keep clear of the straight result.
It isn’t as easy to check the value of in play prices as you don’t have so much time to hunt around but it’s reported that these compare favourably with the acknowledged market leaders such as Stan James and Bet365.
Mobile Betting and App
Winner Sports have a mobile site and a separate app, both of which have enjoyed steady, positive reviews over the years since they were developed. You can also get tailored bonuses when you sign up for mobile so this is an added benefit to playing on the go.
Downloads are quick and free and the mobile site is quick to load if you are accessing it from your device so this is a positive all round area for the operator.
Casino, Poker and Bingo
Winner cover every additional aspect of the gaming industry and there are links to their various sites at the top of the home page. This makes traditional online casino, live casino, poker and bingo very easy to access and there are lots of benefits if you do cross over to play here.
Reload bonuses and loyalty deals are on the table and as Winner take their games from a number of familiar providers, you can also find one of the best choices of games on the net.
