Quinnbet are a relatively new bookie and casino, established by Irish businessman Sean Quinn in 2017. Roll forward to 2020 and they have become very popular online betting site, largely thanks to their friendly service and excellent offers.
Our Rating: (4.4 / 5)
In today’s QuinnBet review, I’ll tell you everything you need to know about QuinnSports, the sports betting part of their site. You’ll learn about their great range of features that actually blows many of the bigger name bookies out of the water.
If you don’t have an account yet, the first thing you’ll want to learn about is the Quinnbet signup bonus.
This is just a small sample of what’s on offer at the moment.
- Best Odds Guaranteed, Cash Out, and Live Streaming
- Daily Free Bets
- Accumulator Bonuses & Money Back Offers
- In-Play Betting on a Wide Range of Markets
- Create A Bet feature
- Well designed mobile site & fast bet placement
As well as sports betting, you can play casino, lotto, virtual sports or pools using the same account. The major downside is that they currently only accept customers from the UK & Ireland. That’s a shame for everyone else.
QuinnBet has a better range of features and special offers than many of the “big name” bookmakers, but they also offer a much better online and mobile betting platform, and a higher quality of service.
Another thing to note is that the terms and conditions on some of the QuinnBet offers are reasonably friendly. For example, look on their promotions page at the daily free bets for existing customers, and you can see that there’s quite a range of bet types included.
This isn’t the case at some of their competitors. There’s no point having bonuses that you can’t actually activate, and at QuinnBet it feels like these are offers you can genuinely take advantage of.
I liked how friendly and laid back everything felt. In a way it’s typically Irish, and I mean that as a compliment. It really feels like a place you can relax, have a few bets and have some fun.
Website / App Design & Ease Of Use
QuinnBet makes use of the FSB sports betting platform. This is the same software used by other operators such as Toals and Jennings.
It’s a well designed, fast and slick platform which renders very well on mobile devices.
Whereas some sportsbooks appear cramped when you try to view their odds markets on the small screen, the Quinn Bet site is just the opposite. It’s easy to navigate, which means you can quickly find the events and markets you need.
I found the “live now” button to be very useful. This shows the sporting events that are live at the moment, which is perfect for those of us who enjoy in-play betting.
The display is easy to see, and the bet placement works well. I also liked the fact that the betslip pops up from the bottom of the screen, meaning they can include a nice big button. No chance of missing it, and no chance of pressing something else accidentally either.
This is good, thoughtful mobile design and it’s a joy to use.
It’s quite common in online sports betting to find that smaller operators tend to offer better odds than the bigger names. The likes of Ladbrokes rely on brand loyalty to keep customers, but they don’t offer a particularly good deal.
Smaller and newer sites do, and that’s certainly the case here. The QuinnBet odds are generally very good.
They do offer best odds guaranteed on horse racing, and if you compare the odds on big events such as Premier League or Champions League football matches, ante-post horse racing, darts, golf or tennis, you’ll see they’re very competitive.
The odds for mobile users are exactly the same as you’ll find on the desktop site. So you can take their entire sportsbook with you in your pocket and place your bets whenever you feel like it, knowing you won’t be missing out on any value.
Choice of Betting Markets
Looking at the selection of betting markets at QuinnBet, I was pleasantly surprised by the choice available.
All the big sports such as football, horse racing and greyhound racing are covered of course, but you’d expect that anywhere. The difference is the depth to which these sports are covered.
Take horse racing for example. Everyone has Uk & Irish horse racing, but QuinnBet also cover France, Australia, USA, Japan and South Africa. Not many other online betting sites do all that, even the big ones. It’s very impressive.
The same goes for Greyhounds. Again, most other bookies cover UK meetings, but QuinnBet also has meets from Ireland, New Zealand and Australia.
Very few other sites have this much choice.
Aside from the more popular sports, you can also bet on e-Sports, NFL, Aussie Rules, Badminton, Baseball, Basketball, Boxing, Cricket, Cycling, GAA (football and Hurling), Ice Hockey, Motor Sports, MMA, Politics, Pool, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Snooker, Table Tennis and Volleyball.
Banking – Deposit/Withdrawal Options
Supported Payment Methods: Bank Transfer, Credit Card (Not UK), Debit Card, Neteller, and Skrill
The choice of payment methods is pretty good at QuinnBet. I’d have liked to see PayPal included as well, but there are other e-wallets available, plus all the usual debit and credit card options.
It’s quick and painless to add funds to your account using your mobile. The button looks quite unusual, but once you’ve identified it, you’ll find it readily available and you can make a deposit any time with just a few taps.
Withdrawals are processed within 24 hours once you’ve gone through the standard ID verification. You only need to verify your ID once of course, then when they have your documents on file your subsequent withdrawals go through without any further delays.
I should add that after opening my account for this QuinnBet review, I found the KYC verification process to be comparatively painless. It was certainly much quicker and easier than at certain other betting sites I could mention. They accepted my documents without any fuss so I could get on with my withdrawal (and the rest of my life) hassle free.
Overall I was pretty happy with the banking process, and have no complaints.
Safety and Security
QuinnBet is still owned by Sean Quinn and his company Belbridge Consultancy Limited. Its head office is in Ballyconnell, Republic of Ireland.
The QuinnBet site operates under a valid GlobalSign SSL certificate. This ensures that all bet placements, deposits and withdrawals take place in a secure environment.
QuinnBet are licensed in the UK using the FSB ubmrella UKGC license (ref 22201). They hold a separate license to operate in Ireland under the Betting (Amendment) Act 2015, number 1013757.
Using the FSB license means that there are other sportsbooks operating under the same license number, namely the others that use the FSB platform. All brands need to comply with Gambling Commission regulations, including responsible gambling, in order to maintain the license. There are no sanctions recorded against any of these brands at the present time.
My research for this review suggests than QuinnBet have a good reputation amongst players, and I have no concerns regarding trustworthiness. I’m satisfied that it is a safe and secure place to bet.
The best way to contact QuinnBet support is via the live chat feature. You’ll find a green button on the bottom right of the screen, on both the desktop and mobile versions of the website. Just click or tap to activate the live chat.
Your other option is to e-mail the QuinnBet customer service department at [email protected] However, you can expect a longer response time that way. Live chat is always the preferred option.
I found the live chat operators to be polite and friendly. As I mentioned above, the only reason I had to contact them was to complete the KYC process and this was done quickly and with no fuss. That’s just what I want from customer support, so top marks.
If you have a general query, you can also check the FAQ section on the QuinnBet website. It’s better than most, and you’ll find most of the information you could ever need there.
Accepts Players From: GBR and IRL.
As I mentioned earlier in the review, this is my only real gripe with QuinnBet. I really wish they’d open up to players from more countries.
I’m not a fan of how the larger betting sites behave and treat their customers, so when a new operator like QuinnBet comes along and shows them how it should be done, it would be great if more people could enjoy it.
When QuinnBet sports becomes a better known name in the United Kingdom – and based on the quality of their service, I’m confident that will happen – then hopefully they will decide to expand and maybe go for an MGA license so they can operate in other countries as well. I’d be delighted to come back and update this review when that happens.
Sadly thought, it’s not the case at the moment. So if you are from the UK or Ireland, then you’ll be fine, but the rest of the world will have to remain patient for now.
Our Rating: (4.4 / 5)
I’m going to sum up this QuinnBet review by telling you something you’ve probably guessed already.
I like this site, and I do strongly recommend them.
For a relatively new sports betting site, they seem to have got almost everything right. The range of offers for existing customers – great. The features such as live streaming and cash out – perfect. The choice of betting markets and competitive odds – very impressive.
You’ll also enjoy friendly customer service, and a far less draconian verification process than some other operators. Right from the time you place your first bet, QuinnBet sports feels like a more relaxed, hassle free environment.
If you’re a UK or Republic of Ireland resident and you’ve been unhappy with some of the usual betting sites, then it’s time to make a change. QuinnBet offer one of the best betting platforms you’ll find, on both desktop and mobile.
There is no reason to settle for second best when you bet online. Just ditch the high street brands and give these guys a go instead.
