Interwetten is a traditional betting provider with an excellent reputation. The company from Austria has been offering sports betting on the Internet since 1997, making it one of the pioneers within the online sports betting industry.
A huge selection of football leagues with a number of interesting special bets leave little to be desired. There is also a focus on tennis with many betting options.
Detailed Reviews of the betting provider Interwetten
In this Reviews you will now find a detailed description of the experiences that our test editors have made with the betting provider Interwetten in the individual test categories over the last few years.
However, one circumstance makes the Austrian veteran of the online sports betting industry particularly interesting, which we want to note here positively right at the beginning:
It is part of the company’s philosophy to offer particularly attractive odds on favorite tips.
With great regularity, Interwetten delivers the best values in the comparison of betting odds for tips on the very big clubs, such as FC Bayern Munich. This is especially lucrative for combination bets!
1.) The Interwetten betting odds
The Interwetten betting odds achieve a comparatively modest payout ratio of in about 92 to 93 percent even for top events of the best European leagues. Compared to the other top providers, this is only enough for a place in the lower midfield.
However, the true strengths in the betting odds are revealed when you compare the odds for favorite wins in soccer betting:
Here, Interwetten is the best bidder in most cases, which guarantees a much higher payout ratio in the long run for all friends of favorite bets than with competing companies!
Due to the always high favorite odds, a combination bet from several supposedly “safe” tips can ultimately bring significantly more profit at Interwetten than at some other bookie.
The mixture of a high level of favorite bets and a relatively low payout key means that the odds for draws and underdog wins are only extremely rarely among the best in the comparison.
However, this is known to sports bettors, which is why fans of favorite tips in particular are drawn to Interwetten. The same pattern can be seen in the live betting:
Here, too, the betting odds on the clear favorite regularly take an outstanding position in the odds comparison, while the other match outcomes tend to be provided with average odds.
2.) The Interwetten betting offer
The Interwetten betting offer is excellent in every respect, especially in football betting Interwetten is one of the best betting shops. A huge selection of football leagues with a number of interesting special bets leave little to be desired.
There is also a focus on tennis with many betting options.
Over 30 different sports can be found regularly in the betting program of Interwetten.
The main focus is clearly on the hunt for the round leather. The Interwetten football bets make up the lion’s share of betting markets.
Other sports such as tennis or ice hockey follow at a far distance. Fans of “exotic sports” are also very well served, so among other things curling, darts or chess are available for sports betting.
Starting with the classic 1-X-2 bet, which is responsible for just over half of the betting turnover in soccer betting, the remaining stakes are distributed among the most diverse bet types.
In particular, the various goal bets contribute a nice share to the total turnover at Interwetten’s Bundesliga bets, also worth mentioning are the handicap bets popular with professionals or the double chance bets rather chosen by beginners.
Together with the most diverse tips on the exact result, the Interwetten betting program has something for every bettor!
German soccer also plays an extremely important role at Interwetten. It goes without saying that not only the Bundesliga and the 2nd league are covered from the country of the 2014 World Champion.
The offer of the Austrian bookie extends over the 3rd league to the “lowlands” of German amateur soccer.
However, not only soccer fans, but also fans of tennis get their money’s worth at the Austrian bookmaker. Interwetten maintains its tennis betting offer with all ATP and WTA tournaments, plus there is a fine selection from the Challenger Tennis category, which is mainly covered in the live betting area.
3.) The Interwetten live betting
In recent years, the Interwetten live betting offer has been constantly expanded and improved. In the field of betting in real time, the online bookie has repeatedly done pioneering work. It has been possible to place live bets since as early as 2002.
Interwetten was thus one of the first major betting providers to recognize the potential of this particularly gripping type of sports betting. The offer is designed accordingly.
The live betting center is clearly arranged and offers up to 300 different events per day. The majority deals with soccer matches, but tennis fans also get their money’s worth with the bets in real time. In addition, there are numerous other events from all corners of the sporting world.
The live offer also covers events from overseas, so tips can be placed at almost any time of the day or night. The importance of King Football is also particularly high in real-time betting.
Well over half of the live events have the hunt for the round leather as their theme, especially on weekends when league action is in full swing.
In terms of the depth of the betting program, the live bets at Interwetten leave virtually nothing to be desired. Although the bookie doesn’t quite manage to match the sheer endless betting program of test winner Bet365, there is definitely no lack of selection to complain about at the Austrian online pioneer.
4.) Deposits to an Interwetten betting account
For deposits to a betting account, Interwetten offers many different options. These range from credit card payment, prepaid cards or the classic bank transfer or even the instant transfer, to payment with Paypal.
Particularly praiseworthy is the processing, which works quickly and smoothly.
In addition, Interwetten no longer charges any processing fees since summer 2019. All deposits land directly on the betting account without deductions!
Incidentally, deposits at Interwetten are possible with all payment options from 10 euros.
5.) Payout of betting winnings at Interwetten

Even with the bank transfer, which must be chosen for the first payout in any case, it takes only 2-3 business days until the money is credited to the bank account.
Of course, the prerequisite is that you have already provided the necessary documents such as a copy of your passport and proof of the specified residential address.
For the bank transfer applies that this can be selected once per calendar week free of charge, for each additional payout within the period, Interwetten charges a flat 5 euro processing fee.

It should be noted that anyone who deposits money into the Interwetten account and does not use it on sports betting or other products, but wants to bring back untouched for withdrawal, must expect a fee of 10% of the withdrawal value.
This is a precautionary measure of the bookmaker, for example to prevent money laundering.
6.) The customer service of Interwetten
At the beginning of our test series, Interwetten scored with a live chat in different languages 7 days a week 24 hours. This has since been discontinued.
Nevertheless, the bookmaker once again manages to score 98 out of 100 points in the quality tests that are carried out on an ongoing basis. This is because quality is what counts most, while quantity is increasingly taking a back seat.
Although the chat has been discontinued, the service team is still available around the clock for its customers. Directly and interactively via a Maltese service hotline or in writing by e-mail.
While the 0035 service number incurs charges for the international call, an e-mail is free of charge (apart from Internet access, which a user must of course have).
Interwetten answers written inquiries, as well as telephone inquiries, immediately and extremely competently. Time and again, Interwetten’s customer service wins awards and accolades in competitor comparisons.
Even if it is hardly ever used nowadays: the service team can also be contacted by mail or fax.
As an alternative to contacting the service center, you can also get information in the clearly and comprehensively designed FAQ area, where many open questions are answered in an understandable way.
A link to this can be found in the footer of the website, for example.
7.) The website of Interwetten
Interwetten was one of the first bookmakers on the World Wide Web, so the website has generally been around for many years. However, the design of the site does not show this, the Interwetten website is, thanks to several relaunches, modern and still absolutely on the pulse of time.
A clearly arranged menu, a modern live console, a pleasant color selection and fast loading times make a virtual visit to the bookmaker a pleasure.
The “dinosaur” among the betting providers has managed to present its comprehensive betting program clearly for years and is constantly developing new features that increase the betting pleasure for its customers.
Interwetten attaches particular importance to ensuring that customers can place their bets as quickly and easily as possible – the betting page of the sports betting provider is absolutely optimized in this respect.
The customer himself can also select his own personal favorites. Especially creatures of habit, who want to bet on certain teams with great preference, can create these as favorites and have only bets concerning these teams displayed.
Interwetten has a particularly large number of filter options on its website: on the one hand, the currently top links can be found at the top left, and on the other hand, specific parts of the betting offer can be displayed with one click.
These filters are:
- Live betting
- My favorites
- Last Minute
- Odds under 2,00
- Today bets
- Bets in the next 1 to 6 hours (using sliders)
Given the proliferation of smartphones and other mobile devices that are constantly connected to the Internet, having a desktop version of the website has not been enough for a long time. The offer of a sports tipster must also provide all the possibilities on mobile.
8.) The new customer bonus from Interwetten
On the subject of betting bonuses for new customers, Interwetten has recently made some changes – up to 100 euros bonus await new sports bettors at Interwetten.
Unlike some competitors, the new customer bonus at Interwetten works a little differently.
Thus, not only the first deposit on a newly created betting account is decisive for the bonus amount. Rather, all deposits that are received within ten days of creation on the new account are taken into account.
Therefore, it is not mandatory to deposit €100 right at the beginning in order to enjoy the maximum bonus amount of €200.
Also, the conditions for releasing the bonus amount are rather unusual in the industry, because the releasing works in 5 stages. Already when reaching the first level, the first 20% of the total bonus amount is freely available and so on.
Also, the minimum odds for free spins is quite good at 1.70, only the time granted to fulfill the bonus conditions is somewhat tight at 14 days.
Secure betting bonus at Interwetten – this should be noted:
- Bonus applies to deposits that are made within 10 days after creating the betting account.
- Interwetten doubles these deposits up to an amount of 200 euros
- The bonus amount is released in 5 predefined steps
- The deposit amount must be wagered five times
- Only bets with a betting ratio of 1.7 or higher are valid
- The bonus conditions must be fulfilled within 14 days
In summary, the Interwetten bonus is one of the best offers in our betting bonus comparison. Unlike some competitors, the bonus granted & released in stages at Interwetten is immediately considered real money and can therefore be used as desired or even paid out immediately.
9.) Security: how serious is Interwetten?
