betway Review

Founded in 2006, Betway is not a newcomer to the online gambling industry but it doesn’t have the rich history several of the UK’s established brands possess. 

betway West Ham

Yet through offering high-end online products and building a loyal userbase it has edged its way up the pecking order to become one of the leading companies in this field. A sign of its growing presence can be seen in its shirt sponsorship deal with English Premier League club West Ham United.

Betway has spread across Europe, into regulated markets that it is allowed to operate in. Its UK-facing site holds a valid Gambling Commission licence so punters know this is a trustworthy operator.

betway Football Betting Tips

Betway has a decent amount of football for punters to feast on. The homescreen has a banner which tells you what the day’s enhanced odds and promos are. Usually, these are related to the biggest games, so you often see something appealing.

There are 7 leagues from England which gets the ball rolling nicely. You also have multiple leagues from many other well-known footballing countries, including: Scotland, Spain, France, Germany, Italy and Brazil to name a few. There’s still room for other places such as South Korea, Morocco and Ecuador offering a single league each with matches available for betting.

For top flight games, the range of betting markets is respectable with win/draw/win, BTTS, correct score, double chance, total goals, goalscorers and half markets among your options. We noticed there were no corners or cards markets which is an area the big boys cover. As is common, the number of markets for games further down the pecking order decreases somewhat. However, for most punters this is rarely an issue.

betway Horse Racing Betting Tips & more

Betway is another bookmaker that offers best odds guaranteed on all UK and Ireland races so you don’t need to worry about the price changing after you’ve placed your bet. It also has live streaming on all races, so its coverage here cannot be faulted.

In addition to UK and Ireland racing, there are more races from Australia, India, South Africa and the USA. Whilst Betway compares with the top bookies in the number of meetings and races, it’s found wanting in other areas. Every local race has a short paragraph from Timeform offering a quick overview and 1-2-3 prediction. This is someway short of the extensive form guides and stats you can find over at William Hill or bet365 for instance. Another weak spot is the lack of betting options. Each race only lists the current price. When you select it and it’s added to your bet slip, you can then click a button if you want to back it each way. Overall, this is quite a poor showing and there are far better bookies online for horse racing punters in our opinion.

Betway Esports

It is evident that Betway has put a lot of effort into developing its esport betting set up, which is why it is the go-to sportsbook in this niche. It’s currently one of the only sites that offers dedicated esports promotions which include daily price boosts and enhanced odds multiples. Plus, there is Esports Objectives - an innovative promotion where you have certain objectives to complete in which you can earn weekly free bets and other rewards.

All of the major esports games, such as CS:GO, Dota 2, Overwatch, Starcraft BroodWar, Starcraft 2 and Hearthstone are available with each listing all of the different competitions and leagues. There is a healthy range of betting markets within each game and you can bet pre-match or in-play. All-round, it is a good package and if esports betting does boom, Betway is well positioned to capitalise.

The average odds that you get a Betway are quite reasonable. It’s swings and roundabouts with the majority of markets and bookmakers, so there isn’t a great deal in it between all of the top guns in the industry.

betway Live Betting

It’s a mixed bag for Betway’s live in-play betting. It offers all the sports you would expect, such as football, tennis, rugby, basketball, ice hockey, cricket, badminton and of course esports. However, the total number of matches is below average compared to several other bookies. With that said, for the games that are in-play, there are a good number of markets to choose from. We found Betway’s in-play betting platform very responsive, so it only takes a few seconds to get your bet on.

betway Website & Login

To be a top-quality online bookie, the site needs to offer punters a feature-rich experience to keep them from straying elsewhere. Betway achieves this in its own innovative style.

Free Bet Club

All punters like free bets which is why Betway’s Free Bet Club is quite appealing. All you need to do to get your slice of the pie is wager £25 (or more) on any trebles or accumulators within a week to receive £10 in free bets the following week. Your treble/accumulator bets must be placed at odds of 2/1 (3.00) or higher to qualify. There are a stack of other free bet offers as well, each with their own qualification criteria. You can check them out on the promotions page of the site.

Betway Plus

Whilst the Betway Free Bet Club is obtainable for most punters, the Betway Plus loyalty program is aimed more at the big spenders. It’s a six-level scheme with all customers starting at Blue level. Other levels include: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Black. As with all rewards schemes structured like this, you earn Tier Tokens (points) by wagering on the platform and if you earn enough within a calendar month, you get promoted up to the next level. Of course, the higher your level, the better the perks. Sports betting punters can earn up to 2.50 Tier Token for every £10 bet. To move from Blue to Bronze (tier 1 to tier 2) you must earn 2,000 tier tokens which means you must bet £8,000 in a month.

Betway Cash Out

Betway offers full or partial Cash Out on a range of selected markets to put you more in control of your betting. This feature helps punters lock in a profit before a match ends, or they can cut and run from a bad bet. It covers single bets and multiples so there are a few ways it can be used. If you’ve never tried it - now is a good time to start.

4 To Win

Not every bookmaker gives out freebies but Betway does with its free to enter 4 To Win racing offer. All you need is a verified account and you are eligible to join in. Simply pick a winner from the 4 preselected races and enter your prediction - this gives you the chance to win. The total prize pot is £1,000 each day, so it’s worth getting your name in the hat even if horse racing isn’t your betting passion.

Website Usability

Betway’s mobile and desktop platform is one of the most user-friendly you’ll find. Even for punters new to online betting, you just cannot get lost. The sub menu across the top provides links to the top sports, ongoing promotions and in-play coverage. Down the left (on a desktop) you’ve got quick links to the big events that are in action or coming soon, and those are followed by a complete list of all the sports. The main body of the page gives you the heart of the action you have chosen. It’s then just a matter of making your selection(s) and staking your bets. We noticed one small drawback, the top menu is sticky so it stays in place as you scroll the page, and it takes up valuable space especially if you’re on a laptop.

betway homepage


betway Mobile App

Following on from the quality web-based platform, the Betway sports app is also of the same quality. It uses a slider menu along the top for all the main action and a drop-down for all other sports. The main betting section is crisp, with sharp lines and decent-sized buttons which are useful on mobile devices.

The regular website features are bundled into the app, meaning you get live streaming, all the in-play betting, free bet promos and more. The Betway app also has Quick Bet functionality using preselected wager values so you aren’t required to type in a stake.

betway Withdrawals & Deposits

All of the main payment methods are offered by Betway, including:
  • VISA
  • Mastercard
  • Neteller
  • Skrill
  • Paysafecard
  • Entropay
  • Bank Transfer

Where possible, withdrawals are made back to the same method that was used for depositing. There is a 24 hour pending period on all withdrawal requests. From there, e-wallets are the quickest (within 24 hours) with debit or credit cards taking between 2 - 3 days.
