About Betway Sportsbook

Betway is one of the most recognizable betting companies in the world, being present in dozens of different countries, as well as being one of the pioneers of the online Sportsbook business, given it’s been around since 2006.

It holds licenses in the UK, Malta, Denmark, Italy, Mexico and Portugal, among others. Customers in Canada can open accounts at Betway because Canadian Law stipulates that any Sportsbook who holds a license in a jurisdiction other than Canada can accept Canadian customers if they so choose to.

Pros

  • Over 20 different banking options
  • Lots of live betting
  • Generous welcome offer
  • Clean, well designed site

Cons

  • Some wagering requirements are quite high

Betway Welcome Bonus

When you open an account at Betway, you can double your money straight away. Thanks to the 100% bonus, you can get up to $200 extra when you make that first deposit. While it may not be as high as some other bonuses, a little goes a long way, and you’ll have the opportunity to make that money back once you receive your bonus.

We generally advise players to deposit the maximum amount first up so they can get the biggest possible bonus because there’s no guarantee that you’ll be able to claim bonuses that good beyond the first one.

Wagering Requirements

Before accepting bonus offers at any sportsbook, be sure to read the terms and conditions. As is common at most online gambling sites, certain requirements must be met before you can claim the full promotion amount – typically, these requirements say you have to wager XX amount of dollars before your bonus can be released.

Sport-Specific Bonuses

Betway offers several bonuses that are specific to a particular sport. For example – if the last score in an NBA game you bet on is a 3-pointer and you lose your bet, they will reward you with money back as a free bet. They offer similar promos for NHL and golf bets as well.

VIP Program

Betway are one of the few sports betting companies that run a loyalty scheme similar to the ones you find at casinos where the more you wager, the more you get back in return.

How much you’ve wagered in the past determines what level you’re at and you receive points based on your wagering activity for that month.

Weekly Promotions

Ahead of big soccer matches, they normally run a promo where you can get a free bet as long as you place a wager before the start of the game at minimum odds of 3.0. There are other special event bonuses like this all the time at Betway.

Sports Betting at Betway

What’s your poison? Hockey? Soccer? Tennis? How about some golf? Whatever sport you like betting on, Betway will surely offer it.

The general rule is that the more high profile the sport and league, the more different markets they offer odds on, both pre-match and in live betting.

But if you have a soft spot for the more obscure sports, they’ll have more than enough betting options on those, too. That could be anything from greyhounds to gaelic sports, volleyball to table tennis. They also offer specials markets, sometimes known as novelty markets. That’s’ stuff like betting on the Oscars, X-Factor or even things like what the British Royals will call their next baby! Different strokes for different folks.

Betway has a reputation as being a Sportsbook who offers a good, solid, reliable product across a huge number of sports and has become even better known by virtue of sponsoring some high-profile sports events, including Premier League darts, horseracing events, cricket teams, boxing fights and perhaps most importantly of all, the West Ham football team in the Premier League.

E-Wallets

Not many Sportsbooks can match Betway when it comes to the number of different depositing methods. Although they don’t accept Bitcoin, there are 22 other payment methods in total and include all the major ones like Visa, Mastercard, Interac, iDebit, PaySafeCard, and the more traditional bank transfer.

The number of different withdrawal methods available is ‘just’ 14 but again, that’s more than enough for a customer to have at least a couple to choose from that suit them.

Our general advice is to use E-Wallets rather than the other methods. They offer greater levels of anonymity and very often allow you to withdraw money much quicker than with other methods such as Visa or Mastercard.

Betway Mobile Sportsbook

A lot of sports betting sites these days have given up on creating their own app because they’re expensive to develop and most of the time don’t do that much that the mobile browser doesn’t do. But Betway decided to have their own app and it’s a good thing they do.

It’s responsive and just as good on whatever device and on whatever operating system you’re using. It’s arguably even quicker to place your bets on the app than it does when accessing the site on desktop or laptop.

Yet another advantage of using the app is that you can watch the events they decide to livestream using it.

Customer Security

Betway Safety and Security

There’s not much point being one of the best Sportsbooks out there if you can’t be trusted when it comes to your money and personal details.

So, it’s a good thing that Betway can be trusted. By using the latest software, they make sure that everything is encrypted which means that no-one can have access to your personal details who shouldn’t. As for your cash, it’s as safe as if it was in a Swiss bank. It’s yours to withdraw whenever you want it.

Customer Support Options

As is often the case, you can reach their Customer Service by phone, e-mail or Live Chat, which we’ve found to be possibly the best way. It’s a quick, interactive and cheap (it’s free) way to get your queries resolved.

But you may not even need to go that far. Thanks to an excellently assembled set of FAQs, you can see most of your questions answered this way anyway. That includes answers to questions on withdrawals, document verification, rules relating to the betting markets, promotions and issues with logging on.
