UPDATE: Ballwin has closed its doors, the bookmaker no longer exists.
Ball2win.com is a bookmaker based in the US Virgin Islands, being regulated and licensed by the Government of Curacao, targeting mainly players in Asia, Europe and US. The main characteristic off Ball2win is the fact that they also accept Bitcoin payments and withdrawals – along with the traditional currencies, of course (they are not an exclusive Bitcoin bookie). They also have pretty good odds.
The website design may not quite be up to modern day standards and there could be some work done there, but that`s always a subjective input and surely it is not a deal breaker. Loading time can sometimes be a little slow, but only when first accessing the home page. On the bright side (and more important), the website is reliable, very easy to use and accessible to beginners, with intuitive browsing and large, visible fonts.
Bonus, banking, customer support
Ball2win normally has a 15% welcome bonus up to 100 USD, but we have worked out an exclusive deal for Betdistrict users – open an account from our website and you will be eligible for a 50% first deposit bonus (up to 100 USD). Bonus is only valid for Sportsbook, not Casino. You also get an additional 15% bonus up to 100 USD when you place your first mobile bet.
Deposit and withdrawal options at Ball2win are nice, reliable and varied, you only have payment fees for Bank Wire and they also get bonus points in this section due to the fact that they are a Bitcoin accepting bookmaker. You can deposit and withdraw trough Bank wire, Credit card, I-Pay, Neteller, PaysafeCard, Ukash, Ezee Pay, Sofort, Ultra Pay and Qiwi walett. Payments are usually very fast.
Customer support is very solid at Ball2win, we`ll easily give them a rating of 9 out of 10 here. First of all they have a very fast and reliable e-mail service, which is always key for bettors. There`s also phone support and live chat (though the chat is not non-stop). Assistance is available in English and Chinese.
Odds, betting coverage, handicaps, limits
Ball2win is gaining increasing trust and respect in the betting community due to their pretty high odds. The prices on the big competitions are better than average and you can sometimes find the highest odds in the industry at Ball2win. Their margins as as high as 1.95-1.95 (generally 1.91-1.91), something plenty of bigger bookies do not offer.
I’d say the betting coverage is somewhere about average. Ball2win has about 15-20 main sports on offer and they provide the punters with options for all big and medium level competitions. You will likely find what you`re looking for, but there`s nothing out of the ordinary that would say “Man, these guys have an amazing betting coverage”. The good news is that the betting types on offer are varied, including a lot of under overs and a good handicap / asian handicap selection – not only on football, but on other sports like basketball as well.
Limits are decent, you can bet as high as 3.000 Euros on the big competitions. That`s good even for professional punters because of the high odds, but the big problem is lesser competitions have lower than average limits.
Live betting, mobile betting
Ball2win has a very nice in-play calendar. You can bet live on pretty much all sports that are available in the standard offer, the betting types are satisfactory and the live software is very fast and intuitive. Overall good services in this department – not top notch, but solid. Lack of live streaming is a minus though (they have live dealing at casino if you are interested in such).
Ball2win does not have a dedicated app for mobile betting, but the website is mobile responsive and you will have a good experience betting from your phone.
Ball2win bookmaker review summary and rating
Ball2win is an average bookmaker at the moment, but they are a Sportsbook with a lot of upside and potential, built on a solid base – good odds, low margins, customer care and low country restrictions. They are also one of the best Bitcoin bookmakers around, if that`s something you are into. While there is still a lot of room to improve, Ball2win is a sportsbook that we can recommend for beginners and bitcoin users. A 3 star rating for Ballwin is fair.
