Inside bwin - Inside the Betting Capitol
The Austrian bookmaker bwin could easily be called the "Arnold Schwarzenegger of Sports Betting". In a few words: this bookie is one of the biggest players on the global sports betting market, poker games and virtual casino pleasure. Bwin was established in 1999 and has since become one of the most successful gambling companies in Europe, with branches in Stockholm, Vienna and Gibraltar (enterprise’s main headquarters).
Range of Bets and Odds
Odds can be displayed in EU (decimal), American (moneyline) and UK (fractional) formats, according to the user’s preference. The odds on bwin are rather average for a bookmaker licensed in Gibraltar. For example, on an even basketball match they are around 1.85:1.85. This slight drawback is balanced out by bwin’s sensational offering of over 90 sports, from the usual like football (soccer), tennis, Formula One, to the out of the ordinary such as Gaelic sports and futsal to Aussie Rules (Australian Football). Furthermore, bwin offers betting on political decision and the world of entertainment as well. Livebets are accepted for football, tennis, hockey and various winter sports, just to mention a few.

Games and Gambling Law
In bwin's poker room and the Casino, you can try your luck at numerous popular variations of poker such as Texas Hold’em, 5 Card Stud or more than 30 classic games. For an additional change of pace, bwin MiniGames like Black Jack and Roulette bring a bit more excitement into your home. The current legal situation prevents American banks and credit card institutions from transferring money to gambling providers. Because of this, bwin does not accept bets from the United States.
