bwin is one of the biggest players in online gaming and has been offering games on the internet since 1999, when it was founded under its original name, Simon Bold Ltd. Two years later – in 2001 – the Austrian public company bwin Interactive Entertainment AG bought the company, giving it its new name. In addition to poker, bwin also offers betting, casino and different kinds of games, such as Euro Fotball Manager and Freak of the Week.
bwin Poker belongs to the Ongame network, which is owned by bwin Interactive Entertainment and includes other poker rooms, such as Betsson and Mansion. The software is both stable and well developed. Bwin Poker can be accessed through a browser or a downloadable client. As usual, the downloadable client offers a slightly classier experience.
As a player, you can find a variety of interesting offers and features at bwin Poker. For example, bwin offers poker games on your mobile, qualifying rounds to big tournaments, such as the WSOP, and tips on how to improve your game.
In addition, there is the b’inside service, which lets you accumulate Market points that can be used in different ways. Buying stuff, paying tournament entrance fees or improving your status on the site are just some of the things you can do with your points.
Software and graphics
The software comes from Bwin Interactive Entertainment and, as previously mentioned, is well developed and stable. A pleasant colour scheme leads to an enjoyable playing experience. If you prefer not to download and install the client, it is easy to play directly in your browser, although the graphics will suffer slightly. The site’s structure is both logical and easy to navigate, meaning you can quickly find a table to suit your needs.
Games and numbers of players
When it comes to cash games, the site offers Texas Hold’em, Omaha, 7-Card and 5-Card. The levels in No-Limit Hold’em vary from $0.05-$0.10 to $50-$100. Furthermore, you can try out the Hold’em game without using real money.
As bwin Poker is a member of the Ongame network, it receives a regular flow of traffic to its tables. Peak times typically see around 8,000 players logged in, whilst the average tends to be around 4,000 players. Which means that you’re more than likely to find a suitable game.
bwin Poker offers a wide variety of tournaments. They range from normal scheduled tournaments at different levels to Sit & Go ones, whilst the buy in varies from free tournaments (freerolls) up to $1,000+$40. You can also win seats at the larger live tournaments by taking part in the various satellite games.
bwin has an online customer service page that is open between 9 am and 5 pm, which answers users’ questions quickly and efficiently. Alternatively, users can look through their FAQ, or contact their support services by telephone.
