Winamax UK – arriving soon?
Winamax, one of the top French poker and sports betting sites, could soon be getting a UK licence. This means that you'll be able to enjoy all the benefits found on the .fr plaftorm on Winamax UK, legally. So what does this really mean and when might things be official? Read on…
Winamax.co.uk – Soon to be Legal?
The possibility of a Winamax UK licence has long been on the cards, and we've got wind that the operator is to be opening up an authorised platform for residents living within the UK. Before now, due to the fact that Winamax wasn't licenced to operate in the UK, players living here couldn't sign up and play on the online gambling and sports betting platform.
What can we expect once Winamax is legal?
Whilst Winamax has been catering to the needs of French players since 2010, we envisage that their offering for UK players will be no less top quality.
The range of sports betting options is adequately healthy, with top options for football, both French and international, as well as British. Champions League, Premier League, UEFA Cup…the list goes on! We predict that there'll be the possibility to bet on World Cup qualifiers for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia.
If you're more a fan of the casino, then fear not – Winamax has long been a top bookmaker for poker. The French version of the site has a really impressive Poker section; covering multiple types of games, as well as single and multi player rooms. There's the option to download the software directly to your PC (Mac, Windows or Linux), or in the form of an app. The Winamax Poker app is available for iPhone, iPad, Android and Windows Phone.
There's no clear evidence that there will be separate Casino and Bingo rooms, but given that both types of casino betting are legal in the UK (not to mention their vast popularity) we expect to see them on the site in the future.
Which Winamax promotions will be on offer?
Winamax Welcome Bonus
If the current promotions at other Winamax platforms are anything to go by, new users can expect a generous welcome bonus. For example, French players can currently get a risk-free bet of up to 100€ when they sign up. Something similar for us UK sports betting fans would be great! As welcome bonuses go, this one is pretty generous compared to the market average.
We'll of course let you know if and when anything develops, so check back for regular updates. In the meantime, why not check to see if you qualify for a Winamax promo code?
Winamax Poker bonus: double your first deposit
If you're more a fan of poker, Winamax will more than likely have the bonus to suit you. To take advantage of it, you need to register in the same way and deposit. If it's similar to the current bonus offer for French poker players, once you've placed your first deposit, you'll get a double bonus up to £500. Once you have met the wagering requirements, the poker bonus will be redistributed to your account in five slices of 20%. You have three months in total to fulfil the turnover requirements.
Winamax UK arriving soon: how can we regsiter?
While the UK version of Winamax is not yet available, we are expecting some news of a launch soon. As and when this happens, UK users will be able to play legally from within the country. To ensure that this is all legal regarding the UK gambling laws, the player must be 18 years old and own the necessary documents for new account verification.
But for the meantime, let's have a look at what we can expect from the operator when it launches in our very own Winamax review. Check back with us for more news!
