Betway launched as an online sportsbook back in 2006 and didn’t get off to a good start. They received a number of complaints from customers for various reasons and their days in the betting industry seemed numbered. However, following these negative reviews, Betway upped their game and somehow managed to turn things around by replacing their management team (twice) and their customer support team. They have since grown to become a trusted brand that is used by millions of punters on a daily basis.
The Betway offer for new customers is a generous yet simple one. New customers who register and place their first bet can receive up to £30 in free bets which is above the industry standard for sign up offers.
The minimum deposit to claim the free bets is £10 and the maximum free bets you can receive is £30. For example, if you deposit & bet £10, you will receive a £10 free bet. If you deposit & bet £30, you will receive a £30 free bet. Simple!
Your qualifying bet can be placed on any sports market providing the odds are about 1.75. If your initial bet has odds of lower than this, you will not qualify to receive the free bet.
Only deposits made via credit card, debit card or PayPal will qualify.
We recommend depositing & betting the full £30 to take advantage of the generous offer but the choice is yours.
Betway offers customers the chance to watch a range of sporting events via their live streaming service. When events are taking place, streaming is available for football, tennis, horse racing, ice hockey, basketball, snooker, eSports, handball and more.
Live streaming is available to registered customers of Betway and you must be logged in to view a stream. For streams other than horse racing, you must have a funded account to be able to watch. If you wish to stream a particular horse race, you must have placed a single bet of £2 or more or an each-way bet of £1 or more on that race. For multiple bet types, the equivalent stake of £2 must be spent. Ante-post and special bets do not apply.
Betway offers live in-play betting across a large number of sports and markets. For football fans, you can bet in-play on markets such as total goals, half time score, next team to score or the total number of goals, for tennis matches markets include next set winner, next game-winner and total number of sets, for cricket, markets include 1st man to be bowled out, the top batsman or the method of dismissal and the list goes on.
Although Betway doesn’t top the charts for the highest odds on in-play betting, their odds are far from bad and the majority of users will find them acceptable.
All in-play events can be found via the ‘In-Play’ tab where you can filter the results by sport, competition and also betting market.
Cash out is a real-time bet settlement feature which allows you to be more in control of your bets by having the option to end them early.
When cash out is available, you can opt to cashin your bet to secure a profit or minimise your losses before the bet is due to settle.
The cash out feature is available on selected sports and markets for single, multiple and system bets and both pre-match and in-play bets. Unfortunately, cash out is not available for any bets which include each-way selections.
To view your bets which are available to be cashed out, head to the ‘My Bets’ section and the current cash out amount will be displayed alongside each bet. This amount will change frequently, especially if the bet is in-play as the cash out amount is based on the current odds for your bet.
Betway also offer a partial cash out feature which allows you to cash out a selected portion of your bet and leave the remainder to run. This may be useful should you bet be winning and you may opt to cash out to the amount of original stake thus making your bet risk-free with the chance of making a profit should it win.
The Betway website is available in multiple languages including English, Swedish, German, Norwegian, Finnish, French, Danish, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and Russian.
The language of the site can be changed simply by clicking on the drop-down list in the header and selecting the language of your choice.
The Betway website is extremely fast and returned some of the highest scores based on Google’s speed test for both their mobile and desktop sites.
Pages load very quickly, as do the games in their casino section such as live dealer games and online slots and when we tested their live streaming service, we experienced no lag or jumping.
The number of sports available to bet on at Betway is satisfactory. They may not list as many sports as some other websites but they will cater for 99% of users as all of the major sports are covered as well as many more.
Some sports which are offered are football, tennis, rugby, baseball, basketball, boxing, ice hockey, American football, darts, greyhounds, netball, snooker, UFC, Formula 1 and many more. They also offer a wide range of eSports betting and run a number of regular promotions specifically aimed at eSports to encourage people to consider betting on the market.
Betways odds are acceptable and reasonably competitive with other top bookmakers. They hold up well for horse racing bets based on the markets we checked when testing and their odds on football were also good.
|Available Odds Formats||Fractional / Decimal / American|
|Best Odds Guaranteed||Yes|
As expected, Betway is accessible via all devices including mobile, tablet and desktop. The site works seamlessly whichever device you are using and their mobile site is very nice to use and extremely user-friendly.
You can download the Betway app for both Android and iOS devices for free from the app stores which is a good idea to keep up to date with the latest news and betting offers which are available.
