Betway went on-line in 2006 and since then the Scandinavian company is open for players from all over the world. The offer is really wide and besides sports betting it has Casino, the Slots and Poker. We need to add that the company possess numerous licences issued in different countries; Malta, Denmark, Italy, Spain and German state Schleswig-Holstein.
We have to say in the introduction that two years ago Betway made a great step forward in the webpage design, which could be judged as very good since 2012 but before that it wasn’t exactly contemporary.
After the redesign all that has changed, and the webpage is modern and easy to navigate. Under “modern” we don’t have in mind “bad” modernity that bombs you with visual effects but “good” modernity that emphasis visual simplicity.
At the end we need to say that webpage optimised for mobile phones was modernised and satisfies today’s standards. We will say more it about later in the text.
Unfortunately, the Betway Sign Up Offer from larger part of Europe doesn’t exist anymore. Customers who come from Germany, Switzerland and some Scandinavian countries still enjoys the privilege and we can say it is a very good bonus, which is for German market 100% up to €150. Of course, the absence of the Sign Up Offer has significant impact on the final verdict. We have to say it is pity since this is a respectable company that belongs to the very top of industry in many other segments. Anyway, the Sign Up Offer has been replaced with Betway Free Bets up to £/€30, and we will go in its detail a bit later in the text.
In order to activate Betway Free Bets a customer must fulfil several simple conditions. The first deposit has to be made via credit/debit card, or PayPal, and there is minimum number of turnovers for the first deposit. After the deposit was made the bonus is transferred to the customer account. In order to withdraw the Betway Bonus and winnings it is necessary to turn in over at least eight times with minimal odd of 1.75.
Betway provides generous and numerous promotions to its customers, and we will go through them in better detail.
Most of Betway Promotions come in form of money-back guarantee. The most interesting one is insurance for football combo bet where players get their money back in form of free bet if they bet on a combo with a least five selections and one of the legs fails. There is similar offer for basketball games and is related to the NBA combo bets. The only difference between this and guarantee for football matches is smaller number of minimal selections per bet slip (4 instead of 5).
Another special promotion is Late Goal Insurance. With it a player will receive a refund if the bet was on correct score, half-time or full time result but it losses due to late goal, scored after 85th minute. Conditions to qualify are similar for all promotions and are can be found at the Betway webpage
Betway has wide chose of bets and with it can parry to any bookmaker. Under this we have in mind both width and depth of offer. There are bookmakers with deeper offer of lesser leagues but Betway definitely has all major ones. Also, there are plenty of special bets.
There is wide offer of Betway sports bets and you can find almost all popular sports. The accent is on football and tennis, but there are all major ice hockey leagues as well as basketball competitions. Fans of fighting sports and car racing will also find good choice of bets.
The only complain goes to odds that are on average a bit lower but still not low as those offered by more caution bookmakers. The odds are similar to those offered by big bookies like bwin, Unibet or mybet and this is especially true for tennis. Regarding American sports, basketball and American football, the odds are fair and not prone to frequent changes.
Betway took care to display odds in all three popular ways; American, decimal and fractional.
You can access the world of Live Betting with a simple click on “In-Play” button located in the upper left corner. With the click you get list of currently available events from wide choice of sports. Once you selected the event all available betting options become visible.
The layout and design are so simple that you will know what to do as soon as you take a look at the webpage.
The registration process is pretty much straightforward and can be divided in three small steps. The first one would be to create an account, then you need to fill in your personal data taking care to punctually type in all necessary information, while the last step would be to enter contact information for possible communication.
After all this you are ready to make the first deposit, and we will go into this in detail later in the text.
At the moment Betway is accessible in 11 languages and in this way the company covers almost the entire central and Western Europe as well as Russia and Latvia.
Betway offers all classic banking services for making deposit: credit cards (all except American Express), debit cards, Skrill, Ukash, Neteller, PayPal, PaySafeCard, WebMoney, Citadel Direct, Clickandbuy, ecoPayz, EziPay, EntroPay, Sofortuberweisung, GiroPay and bank transfer.
You can withdraw your money using many different services: bank transfer, PayPal, Visa, Neteller, Skrill, EntroPay, EziPay, ecoPayz and Clickandbuy.
Safety is very important for Betway. Like most other bookmakers Betway uses SSL encryption, which makes communication between the webpage and users fully secure.
Regarding licences, we need to stress that Betway possess very good licenses for gambling. The most important is of course one issued in Malta, as it is the main operational license. Besides this one we need to mention German gambling licences, which is perhaps even more important since it is very difficult to earn it. On top of these two licences Betway possess licenses issued in Great Britain, Belgium, Denmark, Spain and couple of other countries. As it can be seen the company is present in the entire Europe.
Regarding taxes, we should say that customers from our country should bother themselves with it since they DOESN’T EXIST!!!
The first mean of contact with support crew is Betway Live Chat, which is the easiest way to get help. Also, there is telephone line that stays open 24/7. We should say that live-chat is currently unavailable due to site reconstruction, but we hope it will be online.
Betway Website is accessible in standard PC layout as well as in one optimised for mobile phones, which will surely complete the offer even when you travel.
Webpage is very simple and easy to navigate. The layout is pretty much standard for the industry with column that lists all available sports, while upper horizontal menu displays all options for live betting, promotions, support and games.
What might create eyestrain with prolonged use is contrast between black background and white letters, which some find no so optimal, but in any case, new design of the webpage will surely let you enjoy in all what the site has to offer.
Use of webpage optimised for mobile phones will not spoil your betting experience. On the contrary, Betway has developed App for both mobile platforms that can be downloaded from Google Play and App Store.
Besides sports betting Betway offers all kind of games: Poker, Bingo or Casino. Betway Poker and Betway Casino are particularly well done but it is no wonder since Microgaming stands behind them. The Scandinavians’ Poker offer is particularly good as they have world famous poker room Gnuf. Gnuf is perhaps the most popular in Scandinavia but it also built a considerable following in other countries.
Betway Mobile webpage is one of the best on the market; it has one of best layout and requires very few steps to place your bet, which is a very commendable feature. We need to stress once again that we were delighted with Betway mobile webpage.
Given that our redaction members are often out of office, like most people today, we are glad that quality of mobile access is getting better and better, and Betway definitely belongs to this category.
Betway has one or perhaps two minor drawbacks but all in all this is very recommendable bookmaker. Main reasons for our recommendation are possibility to use PayPal, very good webpage and excellent Betway App for mobile platforms.
Betway is Scandinavian company with long experience and reputation for reliability. There are just few other bookmakers who have similarly simple to use site and fantastic mobile webpage. Besides, deposit is possible via PayPal and support is well organised.
We have left this space for your questions that will be published together with our answers. Since questions are often repeated, we will publish them sorted by subject. If you have question or subject that is not covered by the bookmaker review, please feel free to contact us.
