Youwin sportsbook

This is an outdated review. Because of our recent experiences with Mybet we would like you to consider the following bookies:


Please keep in mind that since 1 November 2014, Youwin is no longer available to customers from Germany. Customers from Switzerland and Austria, however, can still sign up and bank with Youwin!

Here at livetipsportal.com, our job is to find the one bookie that suits you best. In our review, we will inform you about the bookie’s most important features and strengths or weaknesses, so you can decide whether to wager at youwin.com or not.

Our review will include information about the registration procedure and payment options for depositing as well as withdrawal. It will further provide an in-depth analysis of the usability of the site, the bookie’s sportsbook, and the various betting options at Youwin as well as an assessment of the customer service at youwin.com. 

Youwin was founded in 2005 and has since become one of the biggest providers of online betting services and online game of chance.

Signing up with Youwin.com

Before you can get started with the betting, you need to set up your personal Youwin account. Signing up with Youwin is fairly straightforward and follows the conventions of most online bookies. Just click on the button that says ‘Register’ to get to the online form in which you are required to enter your personal data.

These include your name, your date of birth, and your address, as well as a valid email address and your phone number.

Further data required for setting up your betting account are a username and a safety password, which unfortunately can only consist of a maximum of 8 characters. Once you have answered a default security question and agreed to the general terms and conditions, you are finished with the first part of the registration procedure.

You will then receive a confirmation email in which you will find a link to validate your newly created account. This is done fairly quickly and you can proceed to making your first deposit. 

Making a deposit

Before you can start placing your first bets, you need to make a deposit into your new Youwin account. The bookie offers the most common payment options and the depositing procedure is fairly straightforward. The minimum deposit is dependent on the method of payment, but is not higher than 10€.

Once you have entered the amount that you want to deposit, you can choose from the payment options available. Youwin accepts payments with credit cards, bank transfer, and various eWallet services as well as with Paysafecard. Unfortunately, the bookie does not accept Paypal services for deposits. 

Usability at Youwin.com

When assessing an online bookie page, one of the most crucial aspects is the design, and thereby the usability of the site. A well-structured and fuss-free web page can save you a lot of time, and time is indeed money, especially in online betting. Although we can tell that Youwin tried hard to make the page as clear as possible, the sheer amount of information sometimes impedes the ease of operation – but more on that later.  

The main navigation bar is the most important tool of any online bookie page and, ideally, it is supposed to guide you through the content of the site. At youwin.com, the main navigation bar includes direct links to the bookie’s offers in sports betting and in-play betting as well as to the casino, the live casino, and poker. Furthermore, a section on Youwin’s current promos and bonus offers is also provided. 

Once you get to the sports section at Youwin, you will probably feel a bit overwhelmed by the sheer amount of information provided there, and indeed, it took us some time to process all the content. This is most likely due to the fact that the page is designed in such a way that the whole of the screen is used to display the different offers. However, after the first settling-in period, you will find it a bit easier to come to terms with the amount of data.

Overall, the page itself is organised much in the same way as most other online bookie sites. On the left-hand side, you will find an overview of the different kinds of sports available. These are further subcategorised into top sports such as football and tennis, and less popular forms of sport outside of the mainstream (e.g. MMA, rugby, and cycling). At the centre, you will find a league selection, which we will explain in further detail later, as well as current highlights and upcoming events. Most importantly, you can already look into all the different betting options per event on the front page, which speeds up the betting procedure immensely. As per usual, the betting slip is displayed on the right-hand side as well as current offers and events in play.

As far as the league and match selections are concerned, Youwin is quite different to most other bookies. By directly linking football regions and groups (leagues), the searching procedure is quite intuitive and efficient as the respective matches in the league or competition selected are then immediately displayed.

Once you have picked your favourite and the odds you want to go for, you can place your bets by submitting them on the bet slip. The bet slip itself is quite clear and offers the most common betting options such as Singles and Doubles as well as Patent, Trixie and Treble bets. Unfortunately, Youwin does not allow you to place bankers for system bets.  

Overall, Youwin offers a neatly arranged page with a highly efficient league selection system, and after a short settling-in period, you will find it easy to cope with all the information provided.

Language selection at Youwin.com

In order to make their services available to punters from all over the world, bookies are required to offer as much variety in the language selection as possible. Youwin failed to impress us in that regard as the page is only available in German, English, and Turkish. Compared to other bookies, this is nowhere near the standard set by the best in the sports betting industry, and Youwin definitely need to step up their game in that regard in order to reach a larger audience. 

Betting at last!

Now we get straight down to the nitty-gritty, and scrutinise the bookie’s range of events offered as well as the depth of the offer regarding betting options.

As far as the scope of the sportsbook is concerned, the bookie scores fairly high. Overall, Youwin offers events from 20 different sports. Furthermore, the sportsbook is enhanced with bets on events in the entertainment industry as well as in politics and many categories more. In sports, the depth of the offer is also quite impressive as amateur leagues are available as well. For example, if you get bored of top-flight footy, you can try your luck in the Conference Premier or in one of Germany’s regional leagues.   

Overall, the range of events offered at Youwin is more than satisfactory and will surely whet every punter’s appetite for more.

Betting options at Youwin.com

While the scope of the sportsbook (and thus the different sports or leagues offered) is one crucial aspect, the number of betting options per event is quite another story, and by no means less important. Again, Youwin.com does not fail to deliver.

You can choose from standard options such as three-way bets, half-time results, and goal bets as well as from various over/under bets and default handicap bets. The bookie also offers score- and wincasts as well as special bets. The only option lacking is that of Asian-bets, which more experienced punters will probably miss.

As far as betting options for in-play betting are concerned, the selection is a tad substandard. However, most of the common options such as over/under bets, goal bets, and final scoreline. For top matches in play, however, the range of betting options increases. If you are interested in back & lay betting, visit our article about how to play this betting type.

Youwin further offers comprehensive stats features and team sheets (incl. right formation) which is quite helpful when betting on in-play action.

In the unlikely case that you get bored of betting on sports action, Youwin decided to add some variety by offering an online casino and poker tables. If you encounter any sorts of problems or questions, the customer service at Youwin.com can be contacted by means of an email form or via a live chat which is available from 2pm to 10pm on a daily basis.

Cashing out

Success in betting earns you money, and at some point you will want to cash out. At Youwin, you can chose from a variety of withdrawal options. These include standard options such as credit card and bank transfer as well as online services such as Neteller, Skrill, and UKash or ECO card. Before you can proceed to cashing out, you need to verify your account by providing a valid ID (driving licence, passport or any government-issued ID). Additionally, you are required to send along a current bill with your address on it. The whole procedure is a bit cumbersome, but ensures that reliability is given.

Betting with the official Youwin mobile app

If you want to enjoy the Youwin betting experience while being on the road, you should probably give the bookie’s mobile app a try. Make sure you check out our detailed review of Youwin’s mobile betting app here at livetipsportal.com. 

Our verdict on Youwin sportsbook

It’s not always easy to find the right bookie straight away, but with Youwin.com you can’t go wrong.

Youwin offers a straightforward and hassle-free sign-up procedure and a very elaborate design, which might require a bit of a settling-in period, but rewards you with fantastic features and a great overview of the site’s content.

One aspect that needs serious improvement, however, is the bookie’s language selection which simply does not match the standard that the bookie sets in other domains.

The sportsbook at Youwin.com impressed us in terms of breadth and depth of the offer. Furthermore, the bookie provides a great range of betting options per event, which adds to the vast number of events offered and thus guarantees great entertainment as well as it allows you to implement your best and most effective betting strategies. If you’re not too keen on Asian-bets you’ll definitely get your money’s worth at Youwin.

The bookie offers a solid variety of payment options. While it is fairly easy to make a deposit into one’s account, the withdrawal procedure can be a bit annoying sometimes, as the identification process is quite cumbersome.

Overall, Youwin can definitely be considered a very good online bookmaker that only exhibited minor weaknesses, but offers a lot of advantages, especially when and where it matters.
