Winamax has recently arrived in the world of sports betting. He obtained the approval of ARJEL in 2014. This does not prevent them from having a substantial betting offer. It offers a multitude of popular sports such as football, tennis or rugby to others such as snooker or table tennis. Winamax has about twenty sports on which to bet.
Concerning the main activity: football, you have a very complete range of competitions. This goes from classic championships (France, England, Spain and Italy) to more exotic destinations, not forgetting European and international competitions. To summarize, Winamax largely meets the expectations in terms of sports offers. For football bets, for every match you have about sixty possible bets. Compared to its main competitors (Betclic, Unibet, Bwin), Winamax has a more limited offer of bets per match (about ten less). However, it is more than enough for most players.
To conclude on the offer of bets, Winamax has a traditional and complete range without distinguishing itself from its competitors. However, it stands out through its innovative spirit with original bets (The Game of the coach and shared betting grids in team).
When it came to the world of sports betting, Winamax was well behind for live betting compared to other platforms. However, improvements are worth noting. First of all, since October 2016 he offers you to watch live streaming meetings. This service covers in particular ATP and WTA tennis tournaments, or foreign football matches such as the Bundesliga or the Spanish Liga.
The live part is simple and clear. A color system is set up to indicate the evolution of a rating (green increasing, red down). However, compared to other competitors Winamax offers you less information in real time. These statistical data are useful to assist you in your decision to bet. In the end, the offer of live bets is very good. The betting offer may however slightly disappoint big bettors.

Winamax is the reference in terms of odds for several years and even increases its supremacy over its competitors.
