Registration in Winline betting company
Registration in “Vinline” is quite simple and does not take much time.
In a special form on the site it is necessary to provide personal information: last name, first name, patronymic, date of birth, phone number and email.
“Vinline cooperates with the payment service ECUPIS (a single center of record for the transfer of interactive bets of bookmakers). If you are already a client of another bookmaker company, an ECUIPIS partner, it means you have already undergone identification.
If you have never been identified in the ECUIPIS, you must pass it immediately after registering on the Vinline website.
There are four ways to get identified:
1. “Simplified identification” – register on the site and upload your passport photo (selfies with it) and residence registration data. You can also pass it with your “Gosuslugi” account.
You can also do identification at home. To do it, click “Order a call now” after you have finished registration on the bookmaker’s website, wait for the operator to call you and follow the instructions.
3. In the communications salon “Svyaznoy” (the service is called “Identification of ECUPIS”, the cost is 300 rubles), or the communications salon “Contact” (the service is called “identification for Mobile Card”, service code MCDI, cost 150 rubles).
4. Visit any betting shop of BC Vinline in Russia. You will need a passport. Give to the operator the phone number you entered when registering your account. You will be notified about the successful completion of verification via SMS.
Simplified verification has the following limits: for one transaction on a bank card no more than 60.000 rubles, for one transaction on the QIWI Wallet and Yandex.Money no more than 15.000 rubles.
Also there is a cumulative total limit on the withdrawal on QIWI Wallet and Yandex.Money no more than 40.000 rubles per month.
Line and odds
Luxuriously elaborated soccer. A distinctive feature – the link to the line-up indicates the number of markets, not outcomes. Up to 200 markets are available for top soccer, that is more than a thousand outcomes.
Excellent representation and popular leagues in hockey and basketball. Top Tennis is also at a very good level. In total, the line has about 20 sports, including exotics like squash and floorball. But the margin and odds level does not please, even in the biggest markets it is not less than 4.5%. Not one of the five most popular sports the office is not in the top 5 for the level of odds in Russia.
Live is excellent, very large selection of events, great coverage. But then again, the margin is at least 7-8% even in the biggest markets. In some places it goes over 10%.
Among the unpleasant surprises are betting on totals and handicaps. Almost all sports are offered an insufficient number of shifts, with the transition between values is often sharp – 1.5-2 points.
More than 100 leagues are represented in the line, including second or third, and in some places even lower divisions of each country. At the same time, even the Danish 2nd division has a very decent spread of three hundred outcomes! On English amateur leagues – more than 200 outcomes! Bets on team statistics (cards, corner kicks, kicks on goal) are available for only a few of the most popular leagues, like the APL, RPL or Serie A. The margin on the main line of top events is about 4.5%. Additional outcomes and unpopular leagues 7-10%.
All major leagues are represented, there are even not the top leagues in Austria and Denmark. Quality of coverage is not the best. Even for NHL and KHL matches there are no bets on team or individual statistics. These leagues offer an average of 60-70 markets before the game, while many competitors have even more than 100 options available here. The average hockey margin is 5-7% on all outcomes.
Here, too, there are all the major leagues, from the NBA, the Euroleague and other status competitions to the championships level of Bulgaria, Lithuania and Asian countries. Good spreadsheet for the NBA – 50-60 markets. Approximately the same coverage on other popular tournaments. Bets on team and player statistics are not offered even for the NBA and other high level leagues. The average margin for the NBA and the Euroleague is 5-7%, for other leagues about 8%.
The line has all the major and most of the minor tournaments, cyber tennis is present. The list of major events is very good, but the secondary ones are minimal – no more than 10 markets. Margin is also good only on the top tournaments, the rest can reach 8%.
Only UFC is represented in mixed martial arts. Even so, betting and margin leave much to be desired – only naked outcomes for all fights, with a margin of 8%.
Apart from CS and Dota 2, represented pretty good, there is almost nothing else. There are separate sections for CyberFIFA and CyberNBA. But the margins are unlikely to please anyone. Even on the main outcomes it is not less than 8%, and on the rest 11-12% or even higher.
The mobile version of the site opens automatically when you visit from any handheld device. The functionality is presented in full, there is an opportunity to watch TV broadcasts, the download speed is at a good level.
Winline relies on mobility in its development. Therefore, a lot of attention is paid to the application and it “tied” bonuses and bookmaker promotions. The application is available for Android and iOS. It is convenient and easy to use. The interface is quite different from the mobile version of the site, the functionality is complete and the location of the elements is very convenient.
