Bwin’s website uses a dark background, with white letters with several menus. At every moment you can see the total number of Bwin bets that are offered, and it can often exceed 30,000. Football is the most popular sport among punters, and that’s why you’ll see the most popular football events placed centrally, but if you look at the full list of sports and other categories, you’ll notice that there are over 30 sports, as well as few additional categories.
In addition to football, tennis, rugby and cricket you may also place wagers on sports like cycling, ski jumping and bowling. And if you fancy something a bit different you can bet on who is going to host the next Oscars ceremony, who will be the next US President. Other more specific politics and entertainment markets are likewise offered.
If you want to place a bet on an upcoming football match, for example, a match of the Premier League, especially if it takes place on the same day, you’ll have multiple options. Often, there are over 190 offered markets. The markets themselves are divided into several categories, including main, handicap, the number of goals, correct score, and much more. You can bet whether there’ll be a goal in the first 15 minutes, how many corners there will be, who will score the first goal, the options are truly unlimited.
Adding a selection to the bet slip is done by clicking on the odds, and you can do this without being registered or logged in. If you add multiple selections, you will be able to choose whether you want to place multiple single wagers, a multi-bet (accumulator) consisted of all or some of the selections, or various system bets.

With the Cash Out option, punters can take full control of their bets and choose to receive payments even before all events are settled. Cash out is offered on live and pre-match bets, singles and multiples.
