Ranking Methodology

At Winners.net we pride ourselves on being unbiased and transparent when it comes to our bookmaker reviews and rankings, so we want to bring a little more light to how they work, which criteria and parameters are taken into account, and how the reviews are created.

How do we write bookmaker reviews on Winners.net?

All bookmaker reviews from Winners.net are prepared and written by our dedicated team of experts in online gambling and are thoroughly vetted for any perceived bias. With many years of experience as both users and employees in the online gambling industry, they test each betting site, going through all of the same steps a user would and collecting the necessary data prior to the review’s creation.

The overview contains main information about the bookmaker, including the licenses they have, the languages available, currencies accepted, and the actual verdict for the review, while in the categories section we go through each parameter in detail that we consider to be important to the user’s experience on a betting site.

Below you can find the main parameters Winners.net considers when assigning a bookmaker ranking:

  • Bonuses
  • Coverage & Odds
  • Responsible Gambling
  • Deposit & Withdrawal
  • Onboarding Process
  • Customer Service
  • Utility Features

For players, the bonuses are always important. At Winners.net we strive to help in understanding all of the aspects related to the bonuses offered that otherwise may not be fully visible or understandable.

Besides the fact that on Winners.net anyone can compare the bonuses from different bookmakers, we make sure that all important aspects related to the bonus are covered, such as the wagering requirements, the length of time for which the bonus is available, and any other relevant information. Plus, one can always access the full terms and conditions on the bookmaker's page through Winners.net.

Fair and easy conditions for the bonus and clear requirements equal to a better ranking in this category.

Coverage & Odds

Not all players know how the math behind the odds works, and Winners.net is here to help. Without going into technical details we want to make sure that the odds a bookmaker is offering are fair, so we check the margins offered plus the coverage for any sports and games. The better the coverage and the lower the margin means the better a ranking here will be.

Responsible Gaming

When ranking an online bookmaker, one of the most crucial criteria is surely the way they handle responsible gambling. At Winners.net we believe that there is only one way to gamble online, and that is by doing so responsibly.

In this category we evaluate the options an online bookmaker will offer to the player, from limits one can impose on an account and to the organizations they have partnered with to provide help when needed.

Deposit & Withdrawal

Being able to easily deposit and withdraw from a bookmaker using the most common and helpful methods is another parameter we consider. The more payment methods available, the better, but we particularly emphasize the most popular methods.

Another important criterion would be the time it takes for a betting site to process a withdrawal request and for a player to receive their winnings. Faster is always better here.

Onboarding Process

Is it easy to register? Do they require any verification documents immediately after? How long does it take to verify the player's account? These are the questions that are being answered here. We want to make sure that we provide all the information needed before getting onboard with a bookmaker, so there are no surprises after.

Customer Service

What are the channels of support available, and is the support team available 24/7? The more possibilities here, the better, but it's equally important to have an experience free of hassle and to get your questions answered in a nice and pleasant manner.

Utility Features

Do they offer a native app for smartphones? What about cashout or live streaming for sports or esports events? There are some features that you try once and then can't really go without. In this category, we mention all of the specific features that are available for each bookmaker.

We hope that in this post we have managed to give you some insight into how we create our reviews and bookmaker rankings. Now, with the help of our bookmaker recommender or bookmaker comparison tools and with all of your newly-acquired knowledge, we hope that you will be able to find the best bookmaker to suit your needs on Winners.net.
