Kwiff UK Mobile App Review (2021)
Kwiff is a new online sports betting provider that has a mobile betting app available for download, as well as a mobile-optimised website.
Kwiff was launched in 2015 and has quickly become a popular site with punters due to their exciting promotions, which includes an ongoing feature known as getting “Kwiffed”. Being “Kwiffed” means that placed bets become supercharged with enhanced odds of up to 2000 times the original value! This promotion is applied to player’s bets randomly.
To help you decide whether Kwiff, the exciting new sportsbook, is for you, we’ve put together a detailed guide to the sportsbook and the mobile betting app.
A Brief History of Kwiff Sportsbook
Kwiff is an online sports bookmaker that launched in the UK in 2015 and is owned by Eaton Gate Gaming Ltd. The company is based in Malta. Anders Ström founded Kwiff (he also founded Unibet) along with Karl Engström and it was launched as a mobile-focused gambling app.
Kwiff is fully licensed by the UKGC (Gambling Commission), which means that it is recognised as a fair, safe, and secure place to gamble.
Kwiff Sports Betting App Review
The Kwiff sports betting app is available for Android from the Google Play Store where it has a rating of 3.0 stars out of 5.
The app is also available for iOS devices from the Apple Store where it has a rating of 4.5 stars out of 5.
The app requires less than 100MB of storage on either Android or iOS 11 or higher devices.
In general, the app is well-designed, attractive, and has an easy-to-navigate user interface. Some customers complain about crashes on the Android version (hence the slightly lower rating), but Kwiff appears to have ironed these problems out in recent updates.
Overall, the Kwiff sports betting app is nicely designed, with easy navigation and it is fairly simple and quick to place bets. Every time you place a bet there is a three-second countdown to whether you get “Kwiffed” or not, which is exciting. More on “Kwiffing” later on in this.
There are one or two things that could be improved or added to bring the Kwiff app up to the level of the mobile apps released by the best betting sites - in-app live streaming, for instance.
Range of Sports Available
As with any mobile sports betting app, the range of sports on offer is important. Even if you only want to place football or horse racing bets at the moment, who’s to say that in a few weeks time you won’t fancy a punt on a game of basketball, golf, or a more obscure sport such as handball?
In this area, Kwiff is slightly lacking at the moment. All the major sports are covered, but some of the more niche ones are nowhere to be seen. In fact, Kwiff only offers betting on 11 sports at the time of writing, compared to 20+ on many other sports betting sites.
The sports offered on Kwiff are:
- Horse racing
- Ice hockey
- American football
Also, notice the lack of virtual sports and eSports which are becoming a standard offering at most sports betting sites. In this area, Kwiff has some catching up to do. But, if you are happy betting on mainstream sports only, then Kwiff delivers everything you need.
Kwiff is slightly lacking in the amount of betting markets that they offer in each sporting area. For instance, when it comes to Premier League football, there are only between 15 and 20 different markets available for each match, whereas other online bookmakers offer 100 or more.
The betting margins are fairly high at Kwiff too, with an average of approximately 12%. Compared to other online sportsbooks, this is a high margin, but don’t forget that some of this profit margin is put back into the prize pool for the supercharged odds (getting Kwiffed), so everybody gets a chance of a big payout.
The live “in-play” betting feature on the Kwiff app is good, although there is no live streaming. They make up for the lack of live streams by providing a lot of statistical information, timelines, head-to-head breakdowns, graphs, charts, and percentages. If you’re a data nerd and like to be armed with a lot of information before placing your bets, then you’ll love Kwiff’s live betting lounge.
Supercharged Odds - Getting “Kwiffed”
One of the main attractions of the Kwiff sports betting app is the supercharged odds feature, also known as being “Kwifffed”.
Any player can get Kwiffed after placing a bet on the mobile betting app. The Kwiff betting platform randomly selects players to get an odds boost on already placed bets. The value of the Kwiffed supercharge is between 1.1x and 2000x the original odds value.
For example, let’s say you place a bet on 5/4 shot, which is an odds value of 1.2 and you get Kwiffed to the tune of 5x the original odds, the value suddenly shoots up to 6. So, if you were to bet £10 and you win, with 1.2 odds you would get a return of £12, but after being Kwiffed you would get £60. If you’re lucky enough to get the 2000x multiplier, you would get a whopping £24,000!
Kwiffing is a fun feature that runs continuously at Kwiff, using an algorithm to randomly select odds to boost. The nice thing about it is that you can fairly regularly win the smaller 2x or 5x odd boosts, so the excitement factor is never far away!
Loyalty Reward Scheme
Kwiff also runs a loyalty club for regular players. To join the loyalty club you must already have an account with Kwiff and opt-in to the reward scheme through a link on their site. The standard loyalty reward is £5 cash paid into your account every Saturday.
To keep your membership of the loyalty club valid and running, you must place a sports bet with a minimum value of £10 with minimum odds 1/1 (or 2.0) - any type of bet qualifies - single, accumulator, in-play, and it doesn’t matter whether your bet wins or loses.
Maximum Payouts & Minimum Bets
One thing to note about Kwiff is that they operate a maximum win amount from any single or combination of bets of £50,000 per day. So, if you’re a big stakes gambler, make sure you don’t bet so much that you will go over the capped winnings amount as Kwiff are within their rights to hold on to anything over £50k.
The reason we are mentioning this is that the big bookmakers - bet365, Betfred, William Hill, Ladbrokes, etc. have much higher maximum amounts, usually around £1 million, so if you’re a high-roller or professional gambler, it’s worth being aware of this fact.
But, let’s face it - Kwiff isn’t targeting big stakes gamblers. They have deliberately built a betting app that is fun, exciting, and aimed squarely at recreational sports bettors.
The minimum bet amount is £0.10 (10p), which is good news for casual, recreational gamblers. There is no maximum bet amount, just make sure that the potential win from your bet doesn’t exceed the £50k cap.
Kwiff Casino App Review
Alongside their online sports betting app, Kwiff also offers a fully-featured casino, available on their website and as a mobile app for Android or iOS. The casino games are dynamic and fun, with excellent graphics that display perfectly on any mobile device.
The good news is that Kwiff supercharges the casino payouts with prize drops, free spins, and other promotions are available throughout the week, which makes it a fun and exciting place to play.
Range of Games
When you play at an online casino, whether it’s in a browser or on a mobile app, you want to be able to choose from a decent selection of games. Kwiff is a little bit lacking in this area and the casino only offers a very basic range of slots and table games.
The slots are high-quality with good graphics, audio, and have exciting built-in features. The table games are of good quality, as you would expect and there is a good range, including Baccarat, three card poker, as well as European roulette.
The online casino games at Kwiff are provided by big, reputable companies such as Yggdrasil and Play’n’Go, which means you’ll get a fun, reliable experience with great graphics and perfect game mechanics.
Live Dealer Games
There are also live games available if you prefer to gamble in a more realistic virtual environment. You can opt to play on dealer controlled Deluxe tables, and if you’re a higher roller, there are VIP tables available at higher stakes.
The payout percentages (or Return to Player (RTP) rate) for the various casino games are listed in the help section of each game on the app or website. In general, the payout percentages at Kwiff are in line with industry averages (typically between 95% and 99%), but are slightly lower on some games, as a small percentage is taken to fund the various promotions.
Kwiff offers 24/7 customer support by live chat or email. As with most online betting sites and online casinos these days, there is no phone support.
The customer support process is smooth. The entry point for support is a chatbot that gives you answers to FAQs and will redirect you to a live agent if needed. The waiting time is usually pretty low to get to chat with an agent.
Response times to emails are good and you should receive a reply in less than 24 hours. All in all, Kwiff offers a solid customer support experience, especially for one of the smaller, new online betting sites.
The deposit and withdrawal methods at Kwiff are very limited. You can only use debit cards or PayPal to deposit or cash out funds through the cashier. On the bright side, the minimum deposit and withdrawals are set at £5 with 0% fees, which makes it perfect for recreational players who just want a small, quick flutter.
The average withdrawal times are 3 to 5 days for debit cards and up to 24 hours using PayPal.
To sum up, Kwiff is a new, promotion-focused online betting app and mobile casino provider that scores highly on “fun factor”!
The supercharged odds and boosted casino winnings, which range from 1.1x to 2000x multipliers, means that betting on Kwiff is never a dull affair. The betting markets are reasonable and the casino games are well-designed and fun to play.
The mobile app is attractive and easy to navigate. The payment methods lack variety, but the processing speeds are quick and the customer support is good.
We would recommend Kwiff for recreational gamblers that want to place small sports bets or play low stakes casino games, but with the chance to win big through the supercharged “Kwiffing”.
