YouWin Sportsbook Review
Founded in 2005, Youwin is a brand name of Winunited Limited. It is regulated and licenced by the Malta Gaming Authority.
The site operates in English and Turkish, focusing on players predominantly from the European Union, Canada and Turkey.
In 2015 six grand slam winning tennis superstar, Boris Becker, signed a 5-year contract becoming an ambassador of Youwin, announcing that he is looking “forward to a long and successful relationship together.”
There are many arms to the site including their Sportsbook, Casino, Live Casino, Live Games, Virtual Sports and Youwin TV. The bookmaker predominately focus on Football, but with access to the Canadian market there is also a focus Basketball, Baseball and American Football.
Youwin is restricted in a few countries, with players from Belgium, Denmark, France, Greece, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, the UK and the US not being able to play.
Despite being reasonably well established in terms of how long the site has been active for, there is a limited presence on social media with just over a thousand followers on Twitter with their lasts Tweets being posted in 2014. This could be vastly improved to keep players interested.
With just over 20 markets for sport, Youwin has a reasonable range of wagers available and it now offers very competitive odds after years of failing to keep up with the industry. The markets available are listed below:
American Football, Basketball, Baseball, Tennis, Football, Ice Hockey, Golf, Boxing, Horse Racing, Handball, Motor Sports, Cricket, Darts, Rugby, Greyhounds, Snooker, MMA, Specials, Politics, Virtual Football, Pool and Winter Sports.
There is a lack of some lucrative markets like Aussie Rules, Athletics and the growing esports demand which could only serve to benefit the site.
Youwin’s live betting facility is where the bookmaker really excels and stands out from the crowd in terms of what they offer. With a live streaming facility, or Youwin TV, live cash out options and an excellent presentation of live statistics and visuals, Youwin have everything a player is looking for in the extremely lucrative and competitive live betting market.
Usability of the site
The site is very open and user friendly, displaying their markets and wagers in a very inviting way. However, although the design and layout is done well, it is somewhat let down by the loud, obtrusive adverts that are down the right hand side of the window. The mobile app is much better designed and offers players a much more enjoyable, relaxed betting experience.
If players have any issues, which have occurred very occasionally in terms of
payouts and confiscating players winnings, then there are a few contact options available. There is a live-chat facility open from 9:00 to 23:00 CET, and also an option to send an e-mail which Youwin are quick to respond to.
For new players, the promotions are not too enticing, with only a 100% bonus up to €10, unless you live in Canada where it is 100% up to $100. Instead, Youwin target their existing players with the best promotions, with these offers changing regularly.
In terms of payment options, players have a good selection of methods including Skrill, Neteller and over ten other choices, and what’s even better is that deposits and withdrawals are free of charge.
Overall Youwin offer a very good product for its players, but it is unfortunately restricted in a lot of countries that would enjoy the service being offered.
More could be done in terms of promotions for new players and removing advertisements, but the promise of good odds and an excellent live betting facility more than make up for the sites shortfalls.
