Winner has been one of the most player focused online betting websites ever since its formation, and this online gambling giant caters to the needs of thousands of players every day, delivering a number of high-quality and effective products including an online casino, online sports betting facilities, and even poker.
The website is clean, unique, and intuitive, and you’ll find it easy to sign up and create your account thanks to the simplistic 2-minute sign-up form. From the great promotional bonuses to the regular existing player rewards, plus the sheer number of sports betting markets available, it’s no surprise to see Winner as one of the frontrunners in what is a very competitive industry.
In today’s post, we’re going to take a look at some of the core functions of Winner, covering the website’s functionality, any exclusive features, as well as looking at some of the less publicised areas such as banking and the loyalty program.
Popular Offers & Features
Winner offer all punters two main promotions to take advantage of, and we’ll cover both below:
Winner’s ‘Acca Club’, which runs throughout the Premier League season, allows you to take advantage of three great bonuses all rolled into one, and all surrounding accumulators – as if you wouldn’t have guessed from the name.
Once you opt-in to the promotion you’ll enjoy the three great bonuses shown below:
Offer #1: Weekly £5 Acca – In order to claim this first bonus, all you need to do is place a minimum of 5 X £5 bets on football games and ensure that each bet is an accumulator (4+ games). Upon all of your bets being settled (win or lose) you’ll be given a £5 free bet on Monday to use on a football game of your choice. Credited at midday, there are plenty of games to choose from for your free bet, and Winner don’t restrict you much on what events/selections you can use it on – the only real requirement is that it’s got to be at least a 4-fold.
Offer #2: Free Bet If 1 Lets You Down – If you place a 6 fold or higher accumulator on one of Winner’s qualifying markets (shown on the ‘Promotions’ page), you’ll enjoy acca protection; if one of your selections lets you down, you’ll earn a free bet worth up to £25. The amount you are awarded is matched, so for example if you placed a £10 acca and one team lost, your free bet would be worth £10. The free bet is credited to your account just one hour after your acca finishes, which means you don’t have to wait long in order to use it.
Offer #3: Cash Bonus on Winnings – Place an accumulator with 6 or more selections, and Winner will grant you a very generous 25%-50% bonus depending on how many selections are in your acca. A full breakdown of the percentage awarded can be found on the Winner ‘Acca Bet Club’ promotional page, but with up to £5,000 in bonus winnings up for grabs per bet, there’s no reason not to take advantage of this great promo.
Those three offers combined make Winner’s ‘Acca Free Bet Club’ one of the best promotions around – and is yet another reason to strongly consider joining Winner if you’re not already signed up.
Mobile Loyalty Free Bets
Winner state: “At Winner we like to reward our loyal customers with up to £200 in free bets every month when you place your bets on your mobile.” – this works by awarding a free £10 bet for each 20 X £10 bets you place from your mobile phone on Horse Racing events, or in-play Football, Tennis, NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, Snooker, and/or Darts events.
In order to be eligible for the bonus, all you need to do is make sure the bets you place carry odds of evens (1/1) or higher, and as soon as you’ve placed the required 20 bets, the £10 free bet will be credited to your account automatically.
With a maximum of 20 x £10 free bets to claim, there’s virtually no boundaries to this promotion, and while it may sound a little unrealistic to place 20 X £10 bets, just remember, it’s not like you’re playing Roulette where there’s little chance of winning; sports bets are rarely hugely profitable for bookmakers, and with the minimum odds required being 1/1, you can play it safe to some extent.
Find out more and opt-in by clicking ‘Promotions’ from the main navigation menu, and then clicking ‘Mobile Loyalty Free Bets’.
Points Loyalty Programme
Winner offer a generous loyalty program, and at its core are what have become known as Winner Points.
This is a cross-platform points scheme, meaning it doesn’t matter whether you’re a keen punter in the sports book or a slot crazy player who is all over the online casino – Winner’s loyalty program will ensure you are rewarded for your loyalty regardless of whether you win or lose. In fact, there’s a total of £2,100 to be earned in bets and bonuses just for being a member, and as you work your way up the ranks your rewards increase.
Every £4.50 you wager on sports bets will earn you 1 Winner Point, and if you place your bets in a multiple you’ll earn 1 point for every £2 spent instead. If you’re playing in the casino you’ll earn 1 point for every £12 you wager.
As you collect more points you’ll move up the Winner loyalty program ladder which in itself allows you to collect more bonuses, and the higher you get, the bigger the prizes on offer become. Once you’ve amassed a certain number of points you can exchange them for a variety of bonuses and prizes, including free bets, re-load bonuses, entry to exclusive competitions, and more.
To find out more about the loyalty program, just head to the ‘Winner Points’ page from the ‘Promotions’ tab, where you’ll see the full terms and conditions laid out in full.
Winner offer a huge range of payment methods for you to take advantage of for both withdrawals and deposits.
In the following section you’ll see two tables. The first looks at the deposit methods available and any fees associated, along with processing times and minimum/maximum deposit amounts; the second table focuses on withdrawals, again looking at the methods available and the minimum/maximum amounts.
|Deposit Method||Fee||Processing Time||Minimum||Maximum|
|Visa Debit/Credit cards||Free||Instant||£5||£20,000|
|Boku: Pay by Mobile||Free||Instant||£5||£8,000|
|Withdrawal Method||Fee||Processing Time||Minimum||Maximum|
|Visa Debit/Credit cards||Free||3-5 Days||£5||£20,000|
|Bank Transfer||Free||3 Days||£5||£770|
As you can see, almost all of the deposit methods act as withdrawal methods as well, and the maximum payout limits are identical to the maximum deposit limits. In the case of higher staking punters, the maximum withdrawal limit can be increased on a case by case basis, but if you do wish to raise your withdrawal limit you’ll need to get in touch with Winner directly and ask them for an increase.
Another thing to note is that ‘Processing Time’ in the withdrawal table does not refer to the time it takes Winner to process the withdrawal, but the time it takes for you to see the money in your account once Winner have approved and processed the withdrawal request.
