Being around since 2002 we cannot say that Betway is new at the block. We notice that because some things seem to be left undone. Live-streaming and In-Play are one of them. We became more demanding for them because for example in bonuses and promotions or in customer support they did a great job. That means that they can do it. And if they do it, they could be listed in top-class bookmakers not only in the UK but globally. Until then they would be an upon average bookmaker who tries hard to make its way. Should we join them? For sure.
They say that at any given day you can find more than 12.000 markets in their sports book. Naturally, football has a leading role in this bookmaker too. If you look deep inside you can see almost every League and competition you may desire. ItComes of course also with a large number of special markets. Their margin for football is around 4,5%, and it can be considered fair. Sadly Asian Markets are only offered in a minimal part of the sports book, and we honestly hope that this will change shortly.
Regarding other sports, you’ll be excited if you a tennis fan. Lot’s of options, valued odds and great coverage in special markets. Of course, they have all the sports a decent bookmaker will offer to its customers with simply fair odds. E-sports included of course. Summarising we could say that an account in Betway is a must have for football and tennis fans.
Not their most active area for sure. They only cover some sports (football, Tennis, Volleyball, Ice-Hockey) with minimal options. And almost zero live-stream coverage. In-Play betting is probably the hottest feature in the gambling industry, and if they want to become a top-level bookmaker, they should do something about it immediately. Below average also are the stats in In-Play section.
Betway Bonus/ Offers
Betway offers you a 100% up to £30 (the amount varies depending on where the customer resides) welcome bonus. The minimum amount required is £10, and you need to wager the total amount of deposit and bonus five times with odds 1,75 or greater. The Betway bonus expiration is set 60 days after getting it, so you have plenty of time.
“Enhanced Odds” promotions is a field that Betway is working hard at. They don’t specialise in one particular sport or League, but they renew it on a daily basis the offered promotions. So register to them and check out randomly the high valued odds that will come up.
For those who prefer to bet in trebles (or more) often there is an exclusive club only for them. Members of that club can be bettors who spend £25 or more per weak for accumulators bets. A £10 bonus will be charged at your account. Note that you have to be a member of that club opt-in once. It lasts forever.
They don’t seem to give much attention to In-Play markets, so no need to talk about offers.
Betway is offering for new casino customers the chance to earn up to £1,000 as a very generous welcome! Yes, that’s right. A match of up to £1,000 in total can be earned through your initial three deposits with Betway. If you want to learn more, then go to their site, register and read the terms and conditions. The bonus is also available for poker.
Payments/ Deposits /Withdrawals
Betway is giving more deposit and withdrawal options than the average bookmaker does. It can be listed at the very top in the industry in this category. All the options are not available in all countries Betway is trading, but still, there is a large variety of choices. All transactions are without a fee, but you are strongly advised to make it sure by asking the support before starting any transaction. The processing time and limits for withdrawals are also relatives. It could take from some hours to 5 days.
So you can fund your account using among other Visa, Visa Electron, Mastercard, Maestro, Direct Bank Transfer, ecoPayz, Neteller, PayPal, Paysafecard, Skrill, EntroPay Card etc. For withdrawal, all the above options are available except the Maestro card.

They also have a certificate from eCORGA, an independent gaming regulator and also there is IBAS (Independent Betting Adjudication Service) as an Alternative Dispute Resolution service, approved by the Gambling Commission to provide informed and impartial adjudications on disputes that arise between licensed gambling operators and their customers. And of course, all measures are taken to reassure you about your transactions.
Apart from a detailed FAQ section, Betway has a very well organised customer support service. If you want to call them for any question or problem you may have you can find them at 0808 238 9841 (+44-808-238-9841 for all non-UK residents). Another alternative is to reach them through live chat. They respond almost immediately, and they are well informed and polite. Last option offered is via e-mail, and you realise that they get back to you within some hours. It’s also worth saying that is covers 15 languages. As a conclusion, we can say that it’s a high-level department, at the very top of the industry.
More than 450 slots are virtually lying inside Betway’s casino. Imagine the options you have. Also, there are other casino games such as black-jack, roulettes, baccarat and video poker. Speaking of poker if you don’t like video poker you can have the “real” poker experience. It includes Texas Hold’em, Omaha or Seven card stud can offer you. Scratch cards and Bingo are also there to test your luck. An excellent casino experience no doubt.
