We’ll start by confirming that Bwin is legit, catering to sports fans and casino gaming fans alike. You’ll learn more about both aspects of the site in this review.
We’ll go further than many other reviews too, covering usability and mobile features, along with explaining how to open an account should you wish to do so. So if you’re all set, let’s get underway.

It soon becomes obvious that Bwin has a lot of information to share on its site. We rate sportsbooks and casinos in Ontario based on how easy they are to use, among many other factors. We’ve considered our Betano rating in much the same way. Fortunately, finding your way to the sportsbook, casino, live sports, or live casino areas is simple. Once inside the area you want to explore, you’ll find submenus that make life easier in that respect.
We’ll examine other areas of the site as we take you through our review, but it’s obvious that each area imparts plenty of detail in a way that we found understandable and simple to navigate. That’s impressive given how many sports and games there are to look through. With the main menu always at the top of the page, you can get back to the homepage for sports or casino games in one move. That’s good to know if you ever go too deep and want to start exploring again from the beginning. We were impressed at the site format though, and we believe you will get the same experience we did. The site design looks good without ever getting in the way, either.
There is a yellow REGISTER button at the top of every page. That’s the one you need to hit to start the process. There are three steps to complete to open an account, with the first step requiring just your email address and a secure password. Follow the process, make sure all your details are correct, and you’ll soon be in.
We can certainly check for one. However, it was obvious just a few seconds into this search that Bwin does not provide details of an app anywhere on its website. Further research suggested that there are apps for the Bwin Ontario site, but you’ll need to check in the Google Play Store or the App Store to find out what’s there. We did also check whether the site would display properly on a mobile browser and it did, so you could also use it that way. That’s a process we go through with all our reviews, including the Captain Cooks review you will also find on this site.
It’s worth mentioning that you will need to install their GeoComply location software regardless of how you access the site. This confirms that you are within Ontario when attempting to access the site – something that is required by law for them to meet the terms of their license. They provide a video showing you how to do this.
Yes, although there is little information to go on when you first arrive. There are no obvious payments or banking pages, and no payment icons to spot anywhere. We went straight to the help and contact area via the lower menu to see what else we could find on the topic.
There are multiple topic areas within the help section, two of which cover deposits and withdrawals. They link to the payment methods area of the general information section of the site – a section we’d have trouble finding if it wasn’t for that link. They list all available methods there, and you can confirm the ones you’ll be able to use in Ontario once you log into your account and check availability in the cashier. Instadebit, Interac, card methods, and online wallets all appear on the list. There are monthly deposit limits on player accounts, so you must make sure you remain under this limit. You can see more details in your payment history section.
There is a gray panel at the foot of the website that gives you six subheadings to explore. The About Us area is the most useful of those, with the help and contact option appearing at the bottom of it. Having gone through the various links to look around, we realized that the general terms and conditions link was far more useful than it might sound, too. We check everything we see when writing these reviews, just as you’ll notice for our Betty sport review at TheGruelingTruth.com.
The general information area inside the T&C section gives a menu to the left of the page and multiple links and options to the right. There’s a lot to read there that explains how various parts of the site work. If you need to know more about anything, chances are you’ll find what you need in that area. The help and contact area leads to an FAQ area of sorts. At the bottom of the page, you’ll find a complaints option. Hit that and you will see you can ask how to submit a complaint. Even if you don’t want to do this, you’ll see a customer support link on that page. There are links there to the live chat and email contact options. Live chat opens a window ready for you to enter your query.
Yes – you can see the tiny iGaming Ontario logo at the top of the site. The bottom of the site carries a paragraph of small print that confirms the website is operated by ElectraWorks Maple Limited. That company is registered with the Alcohol and Gaming Commission Ontario, and they’ve even added their license number for convenience. This means you can look them up to learn more about them at AGCO.
Once you’re into the sports betting area at Bwin, you’ll see the top sports spread across the top of that section. There’s an A-to-Z area there too, so you can always spot the sport you’re most interested in. Bwin provides country flags for players or teams, set into circles for easy identification. Despite the huge collection of sports and matches to go through, it’s easy to find what you’re after.
The sportsbook is packed with odds for all available sports, matches, and players. Live matches have green or red flashing arrows to indicate which way the odds are heading depending on progress. There are spread and moneyline odds across many sports, but you can select ‘all wagers’ to get the full list of odds for each sport or occasion.
Yes, there is a live betting heading in the menu that takes you into the relevant area. Each sport with live events happening will be at the top of the section, complete with the number of events occurring at present. There is a live media tab to the right which provides access to everything currently happening that has a media feed.
The best place to get all the details is in the terms and conditions. There’s a section relating to winning limits for specific sports and/or events there. Depending on the stake you place, you may be required to reduce it to make sure that a winning bet would fall under the winning limits for that event.
Absolutely – not only is it licensed and regulated but it also provides a host of sports and competitive wagers throughout the site. It’s also great to look around without getting lost, as there are always paths back to the homepage.
The easiest way to get some names for our Bwin casino review was to go through to the slots area. Scrolling down that page revealed highlights from brands including IGT, Pragmatic Play, Playtech, and Inspired Gaming, although there were many others there too. The ‘best of the rest’ section provided hints at a few other developers making it onto the site as well.
Aside from the slots, you can find blackjack and roulette games in separate areas. There’s another for table games too, plus more room elsewhere for Megaways slots and Vegas-style games. Plenty of famous titles make the cut, including Wolf Gold, Sweet Bonanza, and The Dog House.
We can, and you’ll see the separate link to this area in the main menu, next to the regular casino link. The live games include some Ontario Blackjack, along with some unusual offerings such as the Elevation Room and Football Studio Dice games. Some games indicate whether there are any available seats left, too.
Bwin is legit when it comes to catering to all casino players. There are penny slots inside the game collection, for instance, but you’ll also find games with higher available wagers. The motto is to check coin availability prior to any real bets you place.
It’s got to be high because there is so much to see in the casino. With multiple game areas to check out, your favorite titles and game types are sure to be there. They’ve made sure it is easy to explore too, no matter what you fancy playing.
Bwin is legal to use if you live in Ontario, as it holds a license to provide its sporting and casino services in that province.
Yes, you can request a withdrawal if you receive enough from your casino or sports betting to qualify for one. You can read more about this and associated topics in our review at TheGruelingTruth.com.
Bwin offers odds across its sportsbook that compare well to many other online sports betting sites. You can check the latest odds prior to placing any wagers on the site.
There can be variations in withdrawal times depending on the method you decide to use. The site reviews all withdrawals prior to approving them, which can take up to two business days.
Getting a login shouldn’t take long, as it requires you to create an account to use the Bwin website. There are three steps to complete to get one.
If you’re keen to explore an Ontario-focused site that caters for casino fans alongside sports bettors, Bwin does nail both aspects. It’s easy to get around despite the wealth of info included there. Whether you use one area or several, the Bwin experience is certainly a positive one.
