Full Winamax Review

  • Winamax Poker Software

    The software on Winamax is very user-friendly and available in three languages: French, English, and German. The lobby has a variety of filters available, making finding the exact game you are looking for a breeze. The software has a social feel to it, with a huge selection of avatars and plenty of missions and challenges.

    Hand histories can be saved on your hard drive, which is useful for anyone who uses an in-game HUD or post-game tools. There are plenty of preset betting options as well as options to expand or collapse your chat box. Hand replays run smoothly and are easy to navigate.

    All scheduled poker tournaments have synchronized breaks, which is helpful if you play tournaments on multiple sites simultaneously. The one downside to the software is that there are only games available in No Limit Texas Hold'em and Pot Limit Omaha formats.

    Player Competition

    Winamax has some of the softest competition around. This is true from micro-stakes all the way up to high-stakes. Most of the people on the site are recreational players in France, and if you don't mind not understanding the chat box at all times, Winamax is a great site for those seeking out weaker opponents.

    Security and Ethics

    Even though the site does not offer a security token, there have been no major security or ethics concerns. Due to French regulations, your birthday needs to be entered every time you log in, which won't prevent all hackers, but might stop a few who were able to guess your password.

    Account and Customer Support

    Winamax is a French regulated site and is only allowed to accept real money players who have a European bank account. Winamax has a great customer support team even though it only provides support via e-mail. The team will promptly answer any questions in French, English, or German.


    Winamax allows most customers to deposit via credit card, e-wallet, bank transfer, check, or Western Union. Withdrawals are only available via bank transfer due to French regulations and you will need to verify your Winamax account before being able to withdraw. Deposits appear immediately after funds are received and withdrawals are handled very promptly.


    Winamax offers a 100% first-time deposit bonus up to €500 and periodically offers reload bonuses. The bonus is paid out in five equal parts of 20% each. Thirty Miles need to be accrued in order to earn €1 of the bonus. Four Miles are rewarded for every €1 spent in rake or tournament fees.

    Winamax has an above average VIP program. There are a variety of status levels depending on how many Miles have been earned in a month or year. The Miles can also be used to purchase tournament tickets, cash bonuses, and much more in the Winamax Boutique.

    Flagship Tournaments

    Every Sunday to Tuesday, Winamax hosts a two-day Main Event. The tournament has a €50 buy-in and usually exceeds the guaranteed prize pool that is advertised.

    Periodically throughout the year, Winamax hosts the Winamax Series, a large-scale series of tournaments with over €5 million in guaranteed prizes. The series is topped off with a Main Event that typically has a guaranteed prize pool of at least €1 million.

    Mobile Poker

    Winamax has an easy-to-use mobile app that is compatible with just about any type of device including iPhones, iPads, Android phones, and Windows phones. Finding the game you are looking for and hopping into the action is very intuitive. The Winamax mobile app is a perfect substitute for playing on your computer or a good emergency if your WiFi connection fails.

    Overall Review

    Winamax is a great place to make money regardless of the stakes you play. Its software is compatible with just about any device and is easy to use. The drawbacks to playing at Winamax are that games are only available in No Limit Hold'em and Pot Limit Omaha and withdrawal options are limited.
