The Betwinner app is fresh on the scene and is steadily picking up traction across the continents. This bookmaker is one of the few that have stayed away from the UK market and have kept their attention on the opportunities throughout regions such as Central Europe, India, China, and Africa.
Betwinner has cheekily (some may say) replicated the coloring of the more popular online bookmaker, Bet365 with their own branding. After using bet365 ourselves for some time now, this bold move intrigued us into what this app actually delivered. Here’s what we established.
Installing the Betwinner app
This isn’t as easy as you may expect. The app does not appear in Apple’s app store or in Google’s Play store. Instead, there are separate instructions to follow in order to get the app to your mobile device.
If you are not already an account holder of Betwinner you will not be able to bet or use the full features. Therefore it is recommended to initially register for a free account. You can do so from the button below.
How to download the Betwinner iPhone or iPad app.
iPhone users will need their cameras to get the app on their phones. This is because it is downloaded off the back of a QR code scan.
Once the QR code has been successfully scanned a pop-up will appear asking if you want to install the app.
Tap install and the app will go ahead and install it on to your home screen., alongside all your other apps. However, the iPhone app will not open until a tweak has been made to the iPhone’s settings.
You now need to head to your settings app, select ‘General’ and then ‘device management’. Now press on ‘Corporate programs’. Tap on ‘KONTRAST, OOO’ and select ‘Trust’.
There may unbelievably be another small hurdle to jump before being able to use the app. During our testing had instances where the app then had to be updated before use. This required another approval of another download. This step wasn’t that much of a hindrance but something to be aware of so as not to be skeptical if it happens to you.
How to download the Betwinner Android app
The Android version has to be downloaded from the Betwinner mobile site. As this is an app outside of the Google Play Store, Google is unable to verify it. Therefore, you must ensure your Android phone or tablet is set to accept the installation of unknown sources within the security settings.
Full instructions are provided on the download page. It is a bit of a long-winded install. However, it only needs to be done once and then the app is installed on the device for good. (Unless you decide to delete it!)
Betwinner app review
Once the app is FINALLY installed, a pleasant experience ensues. The branding may be similar to bet365, but the app looks and feels very different. Not in a bad way either. There are some features that we really liked and haven’t seen before on other betting apps.
The majority of betting apps now behave in a way whereby tapping on an odds selection adds that to your virtual betting slip. With the app, a popup box appears providing a variety of options. From here you can choose to;
- Add to Bet Slip.
- Place a bet.
- Select odds for the auto bet.
- Quick single bet with a promo code.
A unique way of doing things, but one that totally makes sense. These are some of the most intuitive betting placement features we have seen. The select odds for the auto bet feature allows you to select the odds you are willing to place a bet at. If the odds reach the set threshold the bet will be placed as requested earlier. Very few bookmakers offer this level of functionality.
The overall look of the app is acceptable, with light faded colors used to make the experience easy on the eye. Choice of sports is in line with the competition as was the number of markets within each sport. A good ‘live’ or ‘in-play’ section is available bringing to the forefront of the app, the action that is unfolding right there and then.
When the action is underway, users are treated to nice graphical representations of the relevant sport’s pitch, court, etc to display commentary on what is actually happening. There are also statistics on hand to aid those looking to place a more intricate bet away from the outright win markets.
A popular events dedicated menu section is very handy indeed to those who would class themselves as the casual gambler. The gambler only bets to spice things up a little in the sports that they actually want to watch. This section will only display activity from the big leagues and from the big sports, making it easier for those who visit rarely to put money on the action everybody is talking about.
registration is quick and easy and depositing and withdrawing is super flexible, with over 70 different payment methods accepted. Customer service is on hand to help with any queries, as is a comprehensive help guide attached to the app itself.
A personalizable favorites section makes navigating as easy as you want it to be. Add whichever sports you like to bet on here and this menu will then only show those you select as a favorite. The bet slip is very responsive and flexible offering a good range of multiple bets. The type of bet can be changed by scrolling the bottom menu bar left and right from within the bet slip.
All in all, we were impressed with what the Betwinner app had to deliver. It offers an honest and reliable service, with some features that other bookmakers should really look at adopting within their own software. Betwinner is still very new to the industry, but as far as we are concerned they have made a positive impact.
We expect updates to continue to improve the app even further over time. If that is the case this app may very well find itself within our best betting apps list. Unfortunately, this app is not available to UK residents. However, this app is one we thoroughly recommend throughout Europe, Asia, and Africa. If you are in these regions, register for free and why not give it a try for yourself.
