    'Congratulations' is correct.

    We usually omit the 'to you', and simply say 'Congratulations on your win'.

    'Congrats' (not 'congrates') is also used in the same way, but is very informal, and best reserved for use between friends.

    I agree.

    "congrats" is simply an informal abbreviation of "congratulations". As heypresto says, it is not to be used for formal occasions.
