About bwin Casino
Bwin.com is currently the world’s biggest sports betting and online gambling operation. Partnered up with some of the world’s most successful soccer teams (like AC Milan, Bayern Munchen and Real Madrid) as well as with FIBA and Dorna (the company behind the MotoGP), bwin processes over 30,000 bets each day covering an astonishing 90 sports. The operation is available in 22 languages.
Besides the actual gambling and poker operations it’s involved in, bwin.com is also actively involved with problem gambling research and prevention.
Software and Graphics
Bwin Casino features excellent graphics and two versions of software: a downloadable one and a no-download one provided by Boss Media.
The no download version runs fine on Macs too and it features 36 games. You’ll be able to navigate between the games through a 3d flash interface. Whenever you select a game, directions on how to play appear under the scrollbar used for selection. You’ll be able to choose whether you want to play in full screen mode or not and off you go. When the games load, you’ll be asked whether you want to play in fun or real money mode.
The games loading times are minute and the action is fast and furious regardless of the game you pick. Graphics are clean, though maybe a tad simplistic.
The downloadable software is a different kind of animal altogether. The download itself only takes a few minutes. Once you fire up the game though, and the beautifully stylish interface appears, there will be some loading time.
You’ll be prompted to create an account and you’re ready to roll. The graphics and the game selection are of course on an entirely different level here. There are 40 games on offer and you’ll be able to download them one by one as you select them. Directions on how to play are also available at every step.
Sign-up Bonus and Redeposit bonus
The sign-up bonus that bwin Casino offers its new players is a 100% match on their deposits up to €250. You need to make a minimum deposit of at least €10 in order to qualify for the bonus. Whether you play in the instant or in the download casino, the reward is the same.
Players who are already bwin clients but are new to the casino (the download or the instant play one) will be allowed to take part in the promotion.
The bonus will only appear in your account once you begin playing at one of the games. In order to be allowed to cash out, you’ll need to turn your initial deposit over 40 times at real money tables. Roulette is excluded from bonus redemption.
You have 60 days to fulfill the wagering requirements, otherwise you’ll have to forfeit your bonus.
Besides the first deposit bonus detailed above, bwin offers its new players a host of other promotions. Take the “Gold Rush has Begun” promotion for instance. It features a 5-line slot machine called “Money Miner” which offers players the chance to take down huge winnings through its 25 paylines and its bonus round. The bonus round features a diamond jackpot which holds fabulous real money winnings.
The b’inside loyalty program is valid for the casino as well as for the poker room. By playing at real money casino tables, players will accumulate Market Points and Status Points. Status points will determine how high one climbs on the VIP ladder. The higher you are, the more benefits you’ll enjoy of course. Market points can be spent in bwin’s store on various bwin merchandize.
Both the instant and the download casino offer various jackpot promotions totaling over $4 million in prizes. These progressive jackpots usually come with slots games or Wheel of Fortune type ones and the prizes awarded are indeed large-enough to change your life if you manage to pocket them.
As I stated above, bwin casino offers 36 games through its instant casino software and 40 through its downloadable client. That’s a total of 76 games. You’ll find every casino game here, starting from roulette, blackjack through baccarat and Pai Gow Poker to Slot machines and Video Poker. European and American roulette are both available as well as craps. There are a total of 14 3-reel slot machines and no fewer than 28 5–reel ones. The video poker section has the usual Deuces Wild and Jacks or Better variants, and also offers Tens or Better, Joker Poker and Bonus Poker.
A member of the European Gaming and betting Association, bwin takes its roles extremely seriously. Fairness and security are top concerns for the operation, and these are not mere words either: they are actively involved in problem gambling research trying to find ever more efficient ways to limit and to eventually curb the phenomenon.
Technical Systems Testing is the authority in charge of the regular audits conducted on bwin Casino’s RNG. The software providers are: Boss Media for the downloadable bit and Chartwell Technology Inc. for the instant play casino.
The payout rates offered are in the vicinity of 97% (slots are at 94.32% and card games at 97,62%), and that places bwin Casino high above traditional casinos in this respect too.
Deposit and withdrawal methods
Bwin casino accepts a variety of payment methods, online solutions as well as more traditional ones. You’ll be able to make a deposit using VISA, MasterCard and Diners Club, as well as Neteller and Moneybookers. Plain old bank transfers are also accepted as well as Western Union. Each one of the above named methods has a minimum and maximum limit set to it, so that you don’t get into things way over your head. These limits are wide enough to allow you to make rather hefty deposits though.
Bwin Casino is one of the safest online gambling operations. Besides focusing on registration and identification security, as well as the security of its financial transactions, bwin is also committed to the prevention of gaming addiction and it subjects itself to rigorous corporate social responsibility standards.
Bwin casino is available in 22 languages. To reflect its European oriented nature, these languages are mostly European ones. Just to name a few: English, Russian, Dutch, French, Swedish, Italian, German and a host of Eastern European languages.
The size of the bwin customer base makes the casino a rather unique undertaking as it is. The anti problem gambling measures implemented by bwin represent another unique feature.
Bwin is committed to providing a safe and secure long-term online gaming environment for its players, fully prepared to assume responsibility for the social consequences of its online presence.
Bwin’s support can be contacted via email every day from 8 to 24:00. They have a form at their site you can fill out for this purpose. They can also be contacted via phone.
