Betway review

Betway are a fast growing sportsbook who are investing heavily in top sponsorship deals in Football, Darts and Horse Racing. Betway’s site is extremely easy to use and easy on the eye – they have created a site where the user experience is as simple as possible and they are a relatively young and exciting brand. When it comes to promotions, they are top of the pile – we are very happy to recommend them as a company to bet with.

classic sportsbook layout and good on the eye

Welcome Offer

The first thing you notice when opening their page on desktop or mobile is a clean and ‘friendly’ page with their welcome offer well explained. Their Sports offer for UK customers is that they will match your first deposit with a Free Bet up to £30. (1x Wagering at odds of 1.75+ to unlock the Free Bet. Credit Card, Debit Card and PayPal deposits only – Terms apply). While it’s not the most attractive Welcome Offer around, it’s no fuss and honest and you don’t have to suffer the annoying high wagering requirements that many other sites have.

Other Offers

The Free Bet Club is an ‘opt in’ offer where if you spend £25 + on multiples at combined odds of 2/1 (2.0) or higher you get £10 in Free Bets. Definitely worth opting into.

Betway also have active promotions on sports ranging from

  • Best Odds Guaranteed on UK Racing
  • Horse Racing Predictor
  • Guess the 1st 4 teams to score across the English football leagues
  • Premier League Darts
  • Super league Rugby
  • Esports

Odds and Markets

Betway have a great product variety with plenty of Sports on offer. Their odds are reasonably competitive and you’ll always have a fair bet here. Their traders seem very fair – if you go on a winning run they will not reduce limits very quickly as some bookmakers do – unless you are placing late bets or bets on wrong odds (which rarely happens as they don’t seem to make many mistakes at all).

Some of the Specials that they compile are quite innovative – for example a ‘multi’ sport bet on what event will happen first. They are also happy to take risks and leave markets up longer than other firms – a prime example being the ‘Next Premier League Manager to leave’ market.

Live Betting

Their Live (in-play) betting is average. They do have a decent selection of games and aesthetically it is extremely easy to navigate but the fact that there is no match tracker is a downside – only the score of the match is shown. Regarding betting markets, there isn’t the selection that some other sportsbooks have however the main betting markets are all offered. Matches that have cash out markets are clearly indicated before entering the match.

Deposit and Withdrawal Methods

The standard methods for deposit and withdrawal are all there.

Deposit Methods Include: Visa, Visa Electron, Credit Cards, MAestro, Citadel Direct, Direct Bank Transfer, EcoPayz, Neteller, PayPal, PaySafeCard, Skrill, Skrill 1-Tap, EPS, eWire, Euteller, Webmoney, Neosurf, Astropay, EntroPay Card
Withdrawal Methods Include: Visa, Visa Electron, Credit Cards, Direct Bank Transfer, ecoPayz, Neteller, PayPal, Skrill, Strill 1-Tap, Webmoney, EntroPay Card

Other Features and Facts

Betway have the classic ‘old school’ style sportsbook layout – meaning it won’t take you long at all to get used to how it works.

We’re also a big fan of the dynamic betslip that Betway have on their desktop version – which makes it less annoying to have to move up and down the screen on desktop to go back to the betslip. As you can see here we have put a bet in the betslip and scrolled to the bottom of the page yet the betslip remain open and ready for your bet to be placed. Nice job there Betway!

Very happy to see the IBAS and ESSA logos on the bottom of the page which help to instil trust in the Sportsbook.
