There several important features that you must consider when choosing your best sports betting website to deal with. Some of them include their payment options, safety and license, variety of market selections in their sports book and casino and payment options.

So, if you’ve ever come across 1win and thought about it, you’re in the right place because Topbets will give you a thorough review of the website to polish your choice.

First, it is important to note that 1win is not a very old bookmaker but has slowly built its reputation as one of the best sports betting websites on the globe.

Their website and services can be accessed on desktop computers, tablets and on both android and IOS operating systems on mobile phones. As long as you can access internet, you can access 1win.

 But that’s not all! In Uganda, what entices a man to come to your house is your reception and that’s where we start with 1win’s Welcome offer for new customers.

Welcome offer

1win has one of the most lucrative welcome bonus in the market. A new punter is lured by the fact that he can claim up to a maximum of 500%. Now, how about that!

The 500% is technically divided into four stages. On your first deposit, you’re guaranteed 200% of your initial deposit. In short you will receive double your first deposit as bonus.

For example, if you deposit shs.500, 000 then a total of shs.1, 000,000 will be credited in your bonus account automatically. Meaning that your main account will reflect the shs.500, 000 and shs.1, 000,000 in the bonus account.

The bonus scheme will progress until the fourth deposit. A bonus of 150%, 100% and 50% is unlocked with the preceding 2nd, third and fourth deposits respectively up to a maximum cumulative bonus of shs.2, 129,550.

There are two ways to turn this bonus into money. First, when you wager funds from the bonus account, they become available automatically in the main account. You can also transfer bits of the money when you play and lose a game in slots.

1win at a glance

1win is an international betting site registered in Cyprus with a license issued from Curacao. Basically most sports betting sites and casinos choose Curacao because of its hassle-free system in acquiring a license. The sports betting site accepts Ugandan players with both the Uganda shillings and other foreign currency. 1win offers several gambling services including sports betting, casino, jackpots, slots and live casino.

Withdrawal & deposit

1win provides at least six options for deposit and withdrawal for their Ugandan customers. From mobile money, electronic vouchers and wallets to cryptocurrency, we analysis the steps involved in each option.

Mobile money is pretty simple. All others are, anyway. To deposit using MTN or Airtel Mobile money, go to the main page and click on the Balance button.

Click on the green + button or wallet management option and wait for the box that will pop-up.

From that box, click deposit for another window and choose the mobile money option you prefer.

Enter your respective phone number and look out for a pop-up window from your phone prompting you to enter your password and confirm the deposit.

1win allows a minimum of shs.4,000 and a maximum of shs.1,000,000 for this option.

Perfect Money is a popular electronic wallet for customers dealing with foreign exchange and betting with a slightly higher maximum transaction limit. I will not go deep into how to open the account in this review but you can go here to learn about opening, depositing and withdrawing money. Once the money is in your account, follow the same procedure for depositing and then click on Perfect Money icon.

The main advantage with Perfect Money is that you can deposit using various channels like the bank transfers, e-currency, bitcoins and cryptocurrency.

Once the above window opens, choose the format in which your funds are saved and Make Payment.

Perfect Money accepts between shs.21,660 and shs.4,000,000 as the minimum and maximum limits. Also note that your money will be billed in dollars.

Besides Perfect Money, 1win also utilizes Mybux Vouchers, an electrooc voucher that eases transactions in trading and betting in a number of countries around the continent.

Once you’re through and have an account, follow the usual drills for depositing and choose Mybux in the tabs provided.

Enter your voucher and phone numbers and create the deposit. Mybux offers the lowest minimum deposit of shs.3,500 compared to the earlier options but is capped at shs. 2, 000,000.

The final e-wallet accepted at 1win is the AstroPay. This wallet is a bit faster but only needs you to feed your telephone number and undergo a small verification process before you’re allowed to deposit money. The minimum amount to deposit is a bit higher than the previous methods but looks the ideal choice for customers who bet big. The maximum limit for AstroPay at 1win is shs. 28,000,000!


You can also top up your balance using cryptocurrency at 1win. Even though the options in Uganda are only limited to the Tether SDT tokens but in three different forms – BEP, ERC and TRC – all of which take the value of the prevailing US dollar rates.

To deposit, follow the same procedure as earlier payment methods.

The withdrawal procedure at 1win can be a turn off, somehow. While the registration was just a one-tap and the deposit a quick simple process, the withdrawal has a somewhat longer procedure.

First, you have to complete another layer of registration and verification.

If you successfully cross that registration hurdle, there’s a second requirement!

Your funds can only be available for withdrawal once you’ve fully wagered all the deposits that you made. For example, if you deposited shs.1, 000,000, you must stake a similar amount with bets of at least 1.3 odds to be able to withdraw.

Once done, the withdrawal is a bit easier. Go to the Withdrawal section in your profile and choose your payment method.

Enter the required information and wait for a confirmation code in your email.

Copy the code and paste it into the confirmation box on the website and wait for your funds to arrive. According to the online customer service, your transfer can take a few minutes up to 48 hours to be processed.

1win features

1win’s website is absolutely easy to navigate but you will have to do more to search for your sports. Nevertheless, 1win’s sportsbook offers a multitude of events on a daily basis for betting every day of the week.

1win provides quite a variety of options from crowd-favorites football, basketball, tennis and volleyball.

The others are; table tennis, handball, futsal, baseball, cricket, badminton, floorball, darts, squash, counter-Strike, ski Jumping to ice Hockey and badminton.

The layout is organized in a way that the different sports events are lined up on the left and can be accessed by clicking to open them. 

The website has more of its indicators flashing towards the casino and live games but the sportsbook can be accessed from the main tab at the top.

The sidebar offers a list of the events that are coming up while there’s a tab that guides to the live games. Here, all the events that are on and available for live bets will be shown.

For the live events, click on live and choose the match you’re interested in. the markets will open up for you to select your preference and go ahead to wager. 1win’s live bet allows most if not all of the possible outcomes that are applicable to live betting for particular events.

In terms of odds, 1win has proven that they can be competitive ahead of several other top sports betting sites in Uganda but trailing slightly.

1win Casino review

As noted earlier, 1win’s website seems to have been tailored to attract the casino and gaming lovers more.

The website’s homepage is littered with more than enough options available for players such as slots, roulette, and poker from the same home tab that has the 1win sportsbook and the livescore.

There’s also an extension for live games where the punters can play gambling games with live dealers who conduct the games in real-time. The various games available here include the roulettes, poker and blackjack.

A new punter just has to register his gaming account, deposit funds to wager and choose his favourite games. Note that each game has its own separate sets of rules.


Among some of the top games, include the famous Aviator. No wonder the game powered by Spribe is flagged on the home bar for all to see. A virtual plane that requires players to place a bet before it takes off and cash out their potential earnings before it disappears, the game is trending on 1win.

The plane loads briefly for a few seconds which the gamblers must use to stake their bets. It then takes off as a multiplier starts to count. The player is required to cash out before the plane crashes or disappears. The Multiplier can go as far as a few hundred times.

However, Aviator faces stiff competition from SmartSoft Gaming’s version the JetX and 1win’s in-house product Lucky Jet that are similar in nature bar for the characters used. The difference is that the latter versions have higher multipliers for the big risk-takers.

Besides Lucky Jet, 1win offers a lot more games that are only found in their casino. They include: Gates of 1win, 1win Roulette, 1win Billion Bonanza, 1win Blackjack, 1win plinko, Majestic 1win, 1win JetX, 1win Baba Yaga, 1win One Blackjack, 1win Mines, 1win Aviatrix, 1win millinom, 1win Demi Gods II, Book of 1win, 1win Bonanza, 1win Book of Xmas, Cats 1win, and 1win Double Hot.

These can be found in the ‘only 1win’section. These customized games offer bigger odds as compared to their peers from other providers found in the 1win casino.

More bonuses

1win offers a number of bonuses besides the welcome offer. The most common is the Express Bonus. Remember the Express bet? Well, there’s a bonus for an Express betslip with five or more selections.

The bonus is a percentage of the winning amount and starts from 7% for five bets and rises by one percent (1%) for each additional selection until 10. from 11 and more selections, the bonus is fixed at 15%.

Cashback casino bonus

Lost some bets in the slots, don’t worry because 1win has you covered! 1win gives back to its Slots players up to 30% cashback.

The casino refunds up to 30% of a player’s stake lost during the course of the week. The percentage is calculated after factoring in the overall wagers from a player throughout the seven days but only the bets from the main account minus the bonus is considered. The cashback is credited on Saturdays and is available for withdrawal.

Offers & promotions

Wining zeros – in this promotion, 1win refunds a full amount to a lost bet of up to €40 (shs.170, 000). What you have to do is select the particular match in the promotion for that week and add to your selections. The particular prediction must be within the win-draw 1X2 format.

If your bet losses but that particular match ends 0-0, then you’re eligible for a 100% pending fulfilment of the terms and conditions.

1win has about 20 other offers and promotions in their casino. However, the promotions are attached to specific games by particular providers and slots. You can find about the rest by clicking HERE or the image below;

Safety and security

1win presents a plethora of markets that a punter cannot fail to try his luck and win. The website is easy to use both on PC and mobile phone and provides an application just in case for both the android and IOS users.

The odds are quite competitive and casino is lively. However the lack of a local presence is inspiring at all! The lack of a Ugandan license leaves the customer with a feeling of insecurity.

Besides that, 1win has a duplicate website that explains its terms and conditions and the private policy. That, 1wins, website links to the main site when you try to register or login but has a slightly different domain. Compare 1wins and 1win! This can easily create suspicion for a new customer.

    • Mobile APP – YES

    • Self exclusive – NO

Customer care

To be honest, finding help at 1win is tough. The company has provided a number of customer support services that should ordinarily help in the situation that they don’t have a recognized permanent address in Ugandan customer but none of them is functional. The contact number +2563458765 is not functional and there’s no available social media channel to connect the local customer.

The 24/7 online chat is a bit helpful but a bigger percentage of the replies are from their automated bot system. This is the worst experience for a customer who needs help and can’t find it from the automatic manual that the bot agent uses!

The lack of a clear Ugandan-based assistance underscores most of 1win’s strengths in the market and doesn’t do much in boosting confidence.

For example, the odds above are from the same UEFA Champions League match showing how 1win compared to their big-time rivals Gals Sports Betting and betPawa.

From the two matches, 1win averagely matches the two giants in sports betting websites but blows them off completely with their multitude of markets for the respective games.

The website has astonishingly over one thousand more markets in the respective matches as compared to Gals Sports Betting and betPawa that has 105 and 101 and 144 and 144 respectively.

1win makes it more fun by providing more markets for both Asian and European handicaps for full time and the respective halves, handicaps for corners, correct score for the respective stanzas and anytime goal scorer.

They dig further deeper in their combos (combinations)  to bring a string of chances for double chance/full time coupled with both teams to score for either halves separately and interval of first goals.

How to bet

Placing a wager in 1win’s sportsbook is quite simple! Just pick your selections and they will automatically appear in the betslip on the right. Enter the amount you wish to bet and Make the bet.

However, there are three features –Ordinary, Express and Series- on the betslip that you have to take note.

 Ordinary is a simple bet with only one outcome for a particular event while Express is a product of outcomes chosen from particular events to make one selection.

While Express is a normal type where a wrong prediction in any one selection affects the rest, Series presents a unique option. Here, you can select your bets in the normal format and bet together but the outcomes are independent of each other.

You simply make your selections from several matches and then specify the amount of bet. The amount you select will be copied to all events equally making them a collection of different bets placed at once but independent of each other. In other words, it saves you from the tedious job of manually selecting different bets.

Comparison with Gals and Bongobongo

1win clearly ranks among the best sports betting websites as per the above review. There offers especially the variety of markets offered per single events makes betting absolutely fun when you’re watching the games as well. The website has proved to provide more than their majour competitors like Gals Sports Betting and Bongobongo got to offer.

Their odds are relatively competitive presenting a minimal difference as compared to Gals but look slightly better than Bongobongo.

Their website and mobile applications are easy to use like the other two but what sets them apart is that they cater for both IOS and android users unlike their the two majour competitors who offer only the latter.

Their customer care needs to step up a bit if they’re to match the other two. 1win offers an international customer support that is dominated by bots and not agents. Both Gals Sports Betting and Bongobongo offer a unique call-me back service that puts the customers’ interest at the forefront. What is even impressive about these two is that they provide assistance in several local languages to cover everyone’s need.

1win’s, just like Bongobongo’s lack of local presence affects their product and confidence in new customers and punters who dream big. This is an area where Gals has mastered the tru art and has deployed effectively.

That said, they have an edge over Gals with the number of their deposit and withdrawal options provided.


Do I need to provide a national identification document during registration?

1win does not require your national identification documents to register a new account. In fact, all you may need is a simple telephone number, an email address or any of the accepted social media accounts. I personally used my telegram account to register my account.

What kind of sports bets are available on 1win?
