QuinnBet are one of the latest betting sites to launch on the FSB Tech platform. What does this mean? Well, it means that FSB provide the sportsbook and casino platform including the odds, general layout and features, although Quinnbet themselves hold the UK gambling license. Quinnbet then supply the payment systems, content, branding, games, and decide on what promotions and markets to offer. They also handle customer relations which is a stand out area for them.
The benefit of using a platform such as FSB is that the sportsbook is ready out of the box, allowing the company to then focus on providing a unique product for their customers. Quinnbet, although new, are impressive and have far more going on than most other bookies; for example, they provide a lot of markets and more promotions than some of the biggest established betting sites.
If you are looking to try a new sportsbook in the UK you could do far worse than give QuinnBet a go, and if you like to take advantage of bonuses and promotions then you have just hit the mother load.
Read on to find out what I mean.
Promotions & Sports Features
QuinnBet is the best betting site for a long, long time when it comes to rewarding existing customers. They have set their stall out early as a brand that wants to generate a loyal user base and this is evident by the plethora of long term and short term deals you can access throughout the site.
They don’t boast much in the way of features or things like streaming but they are worth opening an account with for the choice of offers alone. QuinnBet are an exceptionally strong brand for regular customer promos, more in the Paddy Power bracket than say BetVictor. There is seemingly every major type of deal to choose from, from longer term loyalty rewards and bonuses to event-specific specials, insurance, money back and free-bet deals.
In fact, the last time a betting site came along and changed the industry so much with their offers it was Paddy Power, and it is no coincidence that QuinnBet herald from the Emerald Isle too.
The casino is not as busy as the sportsbook with promotions, but it is busier than most other casinos with free spins, cashback, giveaways and the like.
And this is all on top of the loyalty program which gives all customers VIP status and rewards them every week with offers that are personalised to an extent, and the offers aren’t based on whether you win or lose either, so a good week good turn into an even better one.
Features wise things started out a little light on the ground, although it didn’t take them long to add popular features such as cash out which is now available on a good number of betting lines.
They currently offer greyhound racing streams as well as horse racing streams, and these comes from the UK as well as America. QuinnBet have been building up their features over time so it wouldn’t surprise me to see more streams being added in the not too distant future.
Even without live streaming, the live betting in play section is almost perfect precisely because of its simple no frills approach. This is one element that I believe many sites over-think, after-all what we want when betting live is to have a large choice of markets but to be able to find them quickly. This is exactly what you get with QuinnBet, and in fact all FSB brands in general.
One simple addition they have opted to include is the match graphic. It’s not available for every fixture but anything of note will definitely have the graphic on display. It’s a fun and informative addition to the in-play experience and can offer up match stats, match incidents, standings, and head to head comparisons.
Website & Markets
The sportsbook is FSB powered, and this is one of the most easy to use platforms in existence, dispensing with the faff to give punters a no frills but hugely functional experience. Any proper punter will immediately see the benefits in betting with Quinnbet in this department, they have got their priorities straight from the outset.
As a sign of their seriousness they have had a lot of horse and greyhound racing (as well as plenty of deals for both sports too) from the start, whereas most new betting sites avoid these sports in general when they launch. QuinnBet, however, clearly mean business by delivering a racing section that beats many bigger operators. They are also Irish which helps to explain why they understand what actual bettors want.
There sports list contains a little more than 25 categories, with plenty of focus given to Irish sports as you would expect from an Irish brand, but also good coverage of boxing and MMA outside of the usual popular sports like football, basketball, tennis, etc.
You can get an idea of pre-match market depth from some of the more popular sports below:
|Sport Category||Fixture Type||Average # of Markets|
As you can see, depth of market is probably the area that QuinnBet need to improve on the most, but the average bettor will be able to find the bet they want no problem, and once a game is in-play further betting lines will be available.
Each category is very easy to search and/or browse using the list of leagues/competitions offered at the top of each sports’ homepage, or you can search by country. The only thing that could make this even easier is if there was a search function – if it was there I couldn’t see it, and I look at a lot of betting websites.
Football punters will probably see the best odds out of everyone, but given the sports’ popularity it makes sense to attract customers in this way. When you utilise the many offers from the promotions section you are looking at some serious value here.
Other sports also have strong margins which is further proof that QuinnBet are trying to establish a genuine business that gives value to its customers.
Best odds are available on racing while basketball, darts, and snooker also offer particularly good numbers. This is also one of the few bookies to offer regular promotions on GAA hurling and GAA football, so if you do bet on these sports you are almost guaranteed better value here.
QuinnBet are based in the Republic of Ireland and provide sports and casino online services to the UK and Ireland.
The company are wholly Irish owned and this is a real plus for punters as they don’t have to answer to any corporate conglomerates and can run their business as they see fit. The name comes from the man who set the bookie up, Sean Quinn, the former multi-billion business owner who made his fortune in construction and insurance. He was eventually ousted from that business due to debts and eventually went bankrupt, but seems to have come back from the ashes with a renewed vigour to set up one of the best new online bookies in years.
This company isn’t owned by some investment company looking to squeeze as much profit as possible, rather it is backed by Sean and his family who simply want to grow their brand (which is their name so they are going to look after it) while at the same time giving customers a positive betting and gaming experience. The company is clearly well resourced though, which is perhaps why they are able to compete on such a high level, and this alongside the amount of investment already put in means there is very little risk of them suddenly disappearing.
A lot of companies claim to be concerned about the customer and claim to provide a fairer way to bet. Most of the time this is just noise to get you on board, but I genuinely believe this is the case with QuinnBet – you can see a heart and soul in this brand that you don’t get with many others. I hope they keep this up and don’t sell out in the future and I think those that try them out early on will see a lot of rewards come their way.
Social Media, Support
As a modern day bookie born in the 21st century you will find QuinnBet alive and well on social media. Their Twitter account is busy every day with news and offers, and since they are such a promotion heavy brand it makes sense to follow them so that you don’t miss out on any short term deals.
They are also active on Facebook and Instagram with the same info, but their YouTube channel seems to have been neglected.
They also have a full set of online support options now after initially eschewing live chat – it’s available from 8:30am through to 11:00pm which should cover most sporting events. You can also email and in my experience the responses have been quick, but calling them is not possible.
This is becoming more commonplace and in all honesty it doesn’t really make a huge difference. They obviously do have phones at their office so if there was anything they really needed to talk to you about I’m sure they could call.
On top of this, the FAQ and self help options are well designed and thorough. Some online sportsbooks seem to have thrown these together in a few minutes as an afterthought but QuinnBet have done the job properly.
