QuinnBet Bookmaker Review

quinnbet sports home page screenshot

Based in the Republic of Ireland and offering sports and casino services to customers in both the UK and on the Emerald Isle itself, QuinnBet is the brainchild of former multi-billionaire Sean Quinn. The site was launched on the FSB Tech platform in 2017 and Quinn said that his aim with it was to ‘ruffle up’ the feathers of bookmakers in Ireland and the UK. What that means exactly isn’t totally clear, but the likelihood is that punters will be able to take advantage of exciting offers and decent odds as the Quinn family attempt to re-establish themselves after the collapse of the Quinn Group in 2010.

It’s very much a family affair, with Seán Quinn being the sole owner and his son, Seán Quinn Jr. taking on the role of the CEO. It’s not without outside backing, though, given that Séamus McMahon of Belturbet is listed as a director. The link with FSB Tech also means that the site is being backed by one of the most popular casino and sportsbook platforms in the business, with QuinnBet then able to concentrate on the notion of providing unique offers for its customers. It might be young in relative terms, but QuinnBet has already worked hard mix it with the boys of Ireland before coming over to UK shores.

Desktop Site

If you’ve ever used a site that employs FSB Tech then the layout and theming of QuinnBet won’t take you by surprise. They’ve opted for a colour scheme of white, green and black, which lends it a very clean and clear look. As you’d perhaps expect from an Irish bookie, QuinnBet have put horse racing front and centre of their sportsbook homepage. You’ll find the next two races that are due to go off at the top, plus an outline of the racing still to take place and taking place in the coming days underneath it.

Along the top row of the homepage is a list of Quicklinks that will take you to the most popular sports, with football, tennis and golf among them. There’s also a drop down menu that will allow you to select any sport that QuinnBet offers, which is handy. It’s not exactly the most thrilling website that you’ll visit in terms of its appearance, but it does what you need it to do and is visually clean and tidy. Sometimes it’s better to just be able to find the bet you’re looking for than to have all of the bells and whistles that some sites offer.

QuinnBet Mobile App

quinnbet mobile view screenshotThe clean and accessible nature of the site really comes into its own if you’re viewing it on a mobile browser, which the white and green colour scheme and lack of ‘busyness’ really lends itself to. Open it up and you’ll see a banner at the top of the screen that shows you the latest offers and promotions, whilst underneath that you’ll get a ‘Live Now’ section. This is broken up into tabs and clicking on one will take you to the betting options before you can even blink.

Along the bottom of the home screen but in a tab that floats above the rest of the page are a series of Quicklinks to the likes of football, horse racing and your betslip. There’s also a tab that will take you to the menu, offering such options as the Casino and Live Casino. The site is quick, responsive and easy to use, which is half of the battle when you’re out and about and trying to place a bet. As with the desktop site, it’s not the most thrilling that you’ll ever visit but it does everything that you need it to without any messing.

Live Betting

QuinnBet’s In-Play betting is easy to access thanks to a tab for it right at the top of the page. It also follows the rules set out by the rest of the site in the sense that it’s clear what’s happening and easy to use. If you sit and look at it for a minute or two you’ll notice green and red flashes coming up as the odds on any given event change right in front of your eyes.

Live Streaming

There’s no streaming available right now, but it’s a relatively new site so it’s entirely possible that that will change in the not too distant future.

Markets, Odds and Features

It would be untrue to say that QuinnBet offer the sort of market depth that you might have come to expect from a bigger named bookmaker, but that’s not to overly do them down. They cover both horse racing and greyhound racing better than some of their rivals, whilst also offering many of the same matches and events in the more mainstream sports that you’d expect.

The odds can be a little bit hit and miss, often being stronger with sports that are more favoured by Irish audiences It’s also worth noting that QuinnBet offer plenty of promotions that will boost your odds or winnings rather favourably.

Banking

At the time of writing, QuinnBet only accept debit and credit cards for deposits and withdrawals. Whether the more modern options like PayPal and others will be added in the future remains to be seen.

Other Products

As well as a casino there’s also a live version of the same games. If you’re a fan of virtual sports then you’re covered here too.

Existing Customer Promotions

When it comes to the promotions on offer, this is where QuinnBet really begins to come into its own. There are a few that you’d expect to see, such as Best Odds Guaranteed on UK & Irish greyhound racing and horse racing, but there are others that are exciting because you don’t see them all that often. Here we’re taking about the likes of up to a 60% free bet bonus on winning horses if you take the Starting Price, or money back if a pre-match bet on certain football markets ends up being on a match that results in a 0-0 draw.

As well as such offers as Accumulator bonuses, QuinnBet offer customers more niche promotions like free bets for GAA Championship matches that end in a draw. On top of that you’ll find that they regularly put forward offers that are for specific contests, like when they offered money back on the European Open and Canadian Open. Perhaps most interestingly of all, they often give you the chance to have wins within wins, such as their free bet offer every time your Top Scorer in the Premier League selection scores a goal in the competition.

About QuinnBet

quinnbet

QuinnBet might have only launched their sportsbook in 2017 but it’s the work of a company that has a much older history than that. Sean Quinn knows what he’s doing when it comes to offering people a top-quality service, so you’re unlikely to be disappointed if you signup and give the site a go. We’re not looking at just another site that’s the work of a faceless corporation desperate to take advantage of your willingness to win; instead it’s a family run business that want to keep customers happy in order to give the bigger bookies a run for their money.

The company is part of a family that is well-known in Ireland and is risking a lot by putting their name to the brand. That’s so much more encouraging to hear as a punter than a site that’s the idea of an investment company that just wants to make a quick profit. The company itself has stated that the customer experience is the most important thing, promising bettors a promotion that offers them back 25% of their losses as a free bet. If that’s not a sign of wanting to keep people engaged rather than bleed them dry, what is?

quinnbet about and history

Pros

Perhaps the most impressive thing about QuinnBet is the amount and variety of promotions on offer on a regular basis. There’s also the clean nature of the site, which might not appeal to some but to most will be seen as a way of keeping them engaged by not having to fight through adverts and graphics in order to place a bet.

Cons

The lack of depth in the market from QuinnBet is a little disappointing but not the end of the world. Some punters will be disappointed that there’s no Live Streaming on offer, but that might change in the future anyway.

Licence & Contact Details

quinnbet contact details

One thing that’s disappointing from QuinnBet is the fact that the only way to get in touch with them if you’ve got a problem is by email. Considering even some of the most basic of bookmakers offer Live Chat or a telephone line, waiting for someone to reply to an email if you’ve got an immediate problem might grow irritating very quickly, especially if you don’t get a helpful answer!

QuinnBet do have a Twitter account but, at the time of writing, appear to be using it for the purposes of telling followers about major sporting events that they’ll almost certainly know about already rather than interacting with people. The same is true of their Facebook account, meaning that they’re not exactly demonstrating a sense of wanting to interact with their customers. The likelihood is that that will change once they’ve properly established themselves as a market force.

Based in Ireland, QuinnBet’s Gambling Licence comes to them through FSB Technology (UK) Ltd. The Gambling Commission licence number, should you need it for some reason, is 22201.
