Bet Goodwin UK Review (2024)

Bet Goodwin’s operator, Goodwin Racing Ltd, started making sportsbooks in 1997, focusing on horse racing. They had been operating on-course and telephone betting arms for 25 years before they decided to rebrand as BetGoodwin to offer a web-based product in 2022. The site uses software from FSB Technologies, a sportsbook platform that is also working with Quinnbet, Dafabet, 1xBet, and many other bookies.

Bet Goodwin now offers online betting alongside its telephone betting services. The company allows telephone users to access their web-based sportsbooks via the same account. As for regulation, Goodwin Racing Limited is licensed by the UK Gambling Commission.

This review discusses Bet Goodwin’s sportsbook, betting markets, margins, in-play betting, welcome offer & promotions, customer support, payment methods, and mobile app, among other factors you might want to know.

Bet Goodwin Sportsbook

Bet Goodwin’s online sportsbook is presented straightforwardly with the sports listed on the left side, which is the trend for basically all UK betting sites. Above the sports are direct links to several betting markets, including “popular,” “in-play,” “Today’s Horse Racing,” and more.

There is a major focus on horse reading at BetGoodwin, and this becomes clear as soon as the site loads. The bulk of the promotions littering the home page is for horse racing.

Betting Markets

Bet Goodwin is not as diverse as established bookmakers such as bet365, who offer up to 500 betting markets in sports alongside a bet builder. Still, it provides extensive coverage, especially in big sports such as horse racing and football.

You can expect almost 200 for tournaments in major sports. In contrast, others like Alpine Skiing, American football, and rugby union don’t get as many options. Still, there are high chances that most of your favourite types of bets are covered.

For example, in football, you will find bets such as goals, half, corners, goal time, and team type of bets. Other popular markets across various sports on Bet Goodwin include:

  • Outrights
  • Handicaps
  • Halftime lines
  • Totals (over/ under)
  • Prop bets
  • tournament/ series outrights
  • Accumulative bets (parlays)
  • Race winner/ podium/ top 6

Betting Margins

Bet Goodwin’s margins are not so bad, but they are generally higher than you’d expect from other reputable bookies. For instance, while you can get margins as low as 1.42% to 3.8% on the top low margin sites, we established a range of 4.4% to 5.5% for football on Bet Goodwin.

The Everton vs Manu EPL match set for 9th Apr had a margin of 4.4%, the Arsenal vs Brighton set for the same date had 5.5%, while the Leicester vs Crystal Palace on 10th Apr had 5.1%. Horse racing had much higher margins, coming in at an average of 12.65%.

Welcome Bonus

New account holders at Bet Goodwin are welcomed by a direct promotional offer where you bet £10 and get a £10 free bet that you can cash out. Bet Goodwin has very simple rules for the welcome offer, including:

  • Available for new account holders only
  • Offer valid for seven days after signing up and depositing.
  • Only evens (2.0) bets qualify for the welcome offer.
  • Only customers who deposit via Visa or Mastercard debit cards are eligible.

This promotion is not among the most attractive betting offers compared to other top bookies. However, Bet Goodwin makes up for it by having very few conditions. In any case, it is a £10 free bet whose profits you are allowed to cash out, although the bookie deducts the £10 free bet amount from your winnings.

Bet Goodwin Existing Customer Promotions

If you are a horse racing punter, you are in luck when using Bet Goodwin. This bookie takes really good care of its horse racing betting fans. You can expect offers such as:

  • Download the app: Bet Goodwin gives you a £5 free bet for downloading their mobile app. You will also have to deposit and bet a minimum of £5 on any sport to qualify for this deal.
  • Free bet up to £100 for nose losers: Bet Goodwin offers compensation for lost stakes where your horse comes in second and only loses by a nose in all UK and Irish horse races. The minimum qualifying bet for this promotion is £10. However, this deal does not work for ante-post bets.
  • Free bet up to £100 if leading and falling at last: this offer refunds your stake up to £100 if your favourite horse in UK and Irish meetings is taking the lead but falls at the last fence.
  • Free bet if beaten under ½ in a chase: much like the nose losers reward, this offer covers you if your horse finishes second and is beaten by no more than ½ length. It applies to all UK and Irish National Hunt Chase races.
  • Free bet up to £100 if 2nd to 50/1 or bigger: for the last of their racing free bet offers, Bet Goodwin will give £100 risk-free betting if your horse becomes runners up to one priced at 50/1 or more.
  • Best Odds Guaranteed: as expected of a bookie focused on horse racing, Bet Goodwin guarantees the best odds on UK/ Irish meetings and dog races. This offer means if you place an early bet and the price you took happens to be lower than the starting price (SP), Bet Goodwin will pay you out using the bigger odds.

Live Streaming and In-Play Betting

Unfortunately, Bet Goodwin has not started providing Live Streaming services, which is especially surprising for their favourite sport - horse racing. However, the bookie lets you place a stake in in-play games.

There is a good selection of sports with in-play betting, including Esports, cricket, basketball, football, and tennis. Football, in particular, boasts a huge range of tournaments across the world. There are always in-play football matches whenever you log into your account at Bet Goodwin. On the downside, however, the site does not have detailed match information for live bettors to use.

Customer Support

The main communication channel between Bet Goodwin and its customers is Live Chat, which is available seven days a week between 8 am and 11 pm. 24/7 access would have been better. Still, the customer support team is highly professional and responsive, typically replying within 30 seconds.

A dedicated customer telephone (03333221321) line is accessible during the same hours. Also, the email ( works just fine for less urgent needs.

Payment Methods

Bet Goodwin strikes a good balance between its e-wallet and credit card payment methods even though it does not offer many options. The site and mobile app accept payments via:

  • Visa
  • Visa Electron
  • Mastercard
  • Maestro
  • Skrill
  • Neteller

All the above banking methods have a £10 minimum deposit limit, but the minimum withdrawal was not specified. Bet Goodwin does not charge any transaction fees for all of the six payment methods available. The only charges you might incur will come from your e-wallet or debit card provider.

Bet Goodwin Mobile App

The Bet Goodwin site is excellently optimised for PCs and mobile devices. It restructures the arrangement of elements on the smaller screens and tacks the sports/ popular offerings menu into the top left corner to create more room. You can still access them by clicking the menu button.

For a better mobile experience, the company offers betting apps for Android and iOS alongside their web-based mobile-optimised platform. It features excellent colour schemes and an easy to navigate, user-friendly interface. Additionally, the bookie gives you an exclusive deposit-£5-get-£5 offer when you download the mobile app.

The app is a bit picky, but once you install it, you get all the web version offers, plus more. Some of the highlights of the app include:

  • Create a bet: lets you build custom bets in all the top matches, including accumulators on match winner, both teams to score, total goals, half time goals, total corners, total bookings, half with most goals, goal scorer, winning margin, correct score, double chance, and half with most goals
  • Cashout: allows you to cash out your stake and winnings from half your bet to all of it. This option is helpful when your team is ahead, but the match is not over yet, and you can’t afford to wait.
  • Free bets: the mobile app has all the free bet offers that you get on the Bet Goodwin website in addition to the £5 exclusive mobile promotion.

Bet Goodwin Responsible Gambling Support

The team at Bet Goodwin says they take their “social responsibilities extremely seriously.” They provide secure, fair, and socially responsible services. They begin with a checklist for problem gambling on their responsible gambling page, followed by tips for sensible betting.

The site also provides information about finding support services for anyone experiencing problems with gambling in Great Britain. For example, there is a link to GAMSTOP, which you can use to self-exclude from all online gambling providers in the UK. Other responsible gambling features at Bet Goodwin include:

  • Deposit limits: this allows you to limit the amount of money you can deposit to the site for either 24 hours, seven days, or 30 days at a time. You can apply this setting yourself or have it done by the site’s telephone operators.
  • Timeout: you can choose to take a short break from 24 hours to 6 weeks without affecting your unsettled bets or account balance.
  • Self-exclusion allows you to exclude yourself entirely from using Bet Goodwin products. Unlike the timeout function, you can only reactivate your self-excluded account by contacting the customer care team.

Bet Goodwin also provides tips for blocking gambling payments with your bank, limiting your exposure to ads and social media content related to gambling, and more.
