Notes from the Editor

Who is your favorite athlete? Is it a player that has one amazing talent like a great shooter in basketball or a tremendous goalie in football? Or do you prefer a steady guy who initiates the offense as well as he defends and has no major weakness? Betway does a lot of things well without any huge flaws. That being said, they don’t set the industry standard in any one category either except for giving customers a wide array of options. Think of them as one of your friends. A person who’s company you can enjoy on a very regular basis. They offer a solid and reliable product.

Betway bonuses

  • Signup bonus: Up to a £30 Free Bet.
  • Reload bonus: 25% up to £250, on 2nd deposit only.
  • Refer-a-friend: £20 after friend bets £20+.
  • Casino: Frequent bonuses on specific casino games.

A welcome bonus of up to a £30 free bet is available for new bettors plus an additional £10 in free bets weekly when you bet £25 on multiples. It comes with 5x rollover. This is an attractive but not over-the-top bonus. However, if you like casino wagering, you can get a 100% match bonus up to $250 with 50x rollover. Without question Betway’s best offer is a 200% deposit bonus up to £750 in the poker room. The poker bonus expires 45 days after the initial deposit and are split into monthly increments. In addition to these deposit bonuses, Betway does offer ongoing promos. Each day Betway features select “coupons.” The coupons are specific wagers with improved odds and there tend to be a lot of options including straight bets and parlays.

The “Betway Plus” loyalty programme offers even more exclusive promos, and the more you play with Betway the more options you’ll have access to.

Customer service

  • Service hours: 24/7
  • Contact number: 0808-238-9841
  • Live chat: Yes
  • Languages: English, Irish, Czech, Danish, Spanish, German, Swiss, French, Italian, Latvian, Danish, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Swedish

Available in 15 languages, Betway’s customer support is typical of the better modern sportsbooks. It is available at all hours through phone, email and live chat. Wait times are not long at all, and the support team is professional. They also feature a detailed help section on the site that answers a lot of questions that users typically have. Their tier points earned as part of the aforementioned Betway Plus programme allow long-term players to earn VIP customer service treatment which includes perks like your own private account manager.

Sportsbook features

  • Live betting: Yes
  • Additional features: As mentioned previously, Betway has excellent initial incentives for casino and poker players. This probably only benefits a sportsbook player if they spend equal amounts of time playing cards or in the casino as they do sports. If that is the case then cashing in on the other bonuses should be a priority. That being said, whether you spend a lot of time on other parts of the site, or just like to dabble, these are state of the art places to play. The poker room is large and modern. The casino offers dealer and machine play. Betway has recently improved their Racebook product and it includes live streaming of many UK races and some international ones.

If Betway has one area of strength it is their vast selection of available wagers. Whatever sport you like best, they likely have it covered. From football, to cricket, snooker, beach volleyball, pool, darts, chess, politics and rugby – if they are playing, you can bet. Not only is the menu large in terms of what to bet on, but how to wager is equally enticing. For football, you can bet on who will win, in addition to how many corners a team will have, who will score the first or last goal, over/unders, and a dozen or more other options. This holds true for not just wagering before the event begins, but during. Betway has a comprehensive live betting platform that allows you to constantly evaluate changing lines based on conditions while an event is taking place. A big part of having so many options is an excellent website. It loads very quickly, is easy to navigate, and is among the best user platforms in the industry. Streaming of events is available in certain countries. Most of Europe can stream games on their site but check to make sure, if that is an important feature for you.

Website UI and UX

  • Ease of use for betting: Top quality UI, super user-friendly.
  • Mobile betting: Super functional mobile apps and optimized site.

One of the very best UIs around. Slick and simple to use. Both mobile site & iOS and Android apps are very easy to run too.
