Betway is a reputable online bookmaker that is highly praised by both recreational and professional bettors. It went online about fifteen years ago, in 2006, but has greatly expanded since it entered the online sports betting scene. The bookmaker has sponsored many prestigious sports events in the United Kingdom, including the Cheltenham Festival and the Davis Cup. Betway is also the official sponsor of the English soccer club West Ham United and the global betting partner of Leicester City.

One of the reasons why the sportsbook enjoys such popularity is the outstanding versatility of sports events and markets. Betway offers competitive odds and covers events from all prestigious leagues in Europe and the world in general – the Champions League, NBA, NFL, and ATP, among many others. Bets on horse races are also accepted.

In addition, the bookmaker accepts an impressive number of fast, convenient, but above all safe payment methods. Any punter, who registers with an account will surely find a payment solution that suits their preferences and bankroll size. Not to mention, both new and existing members are granted lots of generous bonuses.

Betway is a completely reliable bookmaker and as such, it deserves punters’ trust. It is licensed and regulated by the Malta Gaming Authority and the UK Gambling Commission.


Sportsbook As said above, Betway provides extensive coverage of all sports events you can possibly imagine. Its sportsbook comprises over thirty individual and team sports. Meanwhile, punters can choose between 30,000 betting markets!

Apart from soccer, punters frequently bet on basketball, tennis, golf, baseball, American football, boxing, hockey, cricket, and volleyball. The enhanced odds for the most popular sports can be found at the top of the sportsbook’s menu. Bets on less widespread sports like bandy, floorball, bowls, and futsal are also accepted. There is a separate section for Gaelic sports which consists of Gaelic football and hurling. Interestingly, punters are provided with the rather interesting opportunity to wager on events that are not related to sports. For instance, bets can be placed on who the next Prime Minister of the UK will be.

As usual, punters are able to choose between the three most widespread formats of odds – American, decimal, and fractional.

Betway allows for bets to be placed while games are still underway. This functionality, known as In-Play or Live betting allows for a better assessment of the direction the game is taking. Needless to say, if you take your time before you put your money at stake, your chances of placing a winning bet will increase.

But that is not all Betway has to offer. To further boost your chances of winning, you can go through the comprehensive statistics that are published on the website on a regular basis. This helps you evaluate the teams’ form better. The results and fixtures for each league or championship are also available. There is a separate Archives section, where you can check which teams have emerged as champions in the previous years.


Football As one of the most popular sports in the entire world, soccer has the most comprehensive coverage. Punters who enjoy betting on this sport can pick between a plethora of international and domestic events. Some of the domestic leagues, covered by Betway, include the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, Ligue 1, and the Bundesliga. Despite that, lower leagues are also on offer.

Punters can enhance their betting experience thanks to the #BetYourWay Betbuilder function that is built-in within the sportsbook. It enables them to create a unique bet by selecting and combining different markets.


Basketball Basketball fans who like placing bets on NBA matches will surely like Betway since the sportsbook provides them with as many events as possible in this remarkable league. Punters can choose between multiple bet types generally divided between the 1st half as well as the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th quarters. Player props are also available so you can bet on how many points, assists, rebounds, or three points a particular player will score.

Betway aims at catering to bettors from different parts of the world and its basketball section is not focused on the NBA only. The bookie features all the major basketball championships around the globe such as the Spanish Liga ACB and the Italian Lega Basket Serie A and also tournaments like the Euro Cup for example.

Punters can take advantage of Betway’s blog by reading professional and detailed analysis, interviews with key players and coaches as well as basketball betting predictions.


Tennis Another globally popular sport is tennis and it takes its rightful place in the portfolio of Betway. It is one of the disciplines you can find in the live section of the sportsbook. By clicking on a particular match you not only see the current result and time but also comprehensive statistics comprising a percentage of breakpoints won, aces scored, double faults, etc.

The online sportsbook offers a great variety of events from the four Grand Slam tournaments, the Davis and Fed Cup, different ATP and WTA tournaments, and also some special markets related to the upcoming season.

Betway has an enticing treat for the most avid tennis bettors. They can go to the Betyourway Specials category and wager on some very interesting options like Who Will Serve Most Asses In 2022 ATP Season or Stefanos Tsitsipas To Win A Grand Slam in 2022.


Cricket Contrary to the practice of many of its competitors where cricket is just a minor supplement to the sports library, Betway puts this discipline to the front. For example, the Lanka Premier League is among the most popular events featured by the bookie and the same is true for the Big Bash League, the Vijay Hazare Trophy, the Ashes, and the T20 Internationals. That’s not all, the sportsbook covers all kinds of events from domestic and international competitions, both men’s and women’s.

Bets are possible both pre-match and in-play and include Match Winner, Draw No Bet, Man Of The Match, and many others. Furthermore, Betway’s sports blog has special sections for cricket betting tips and IPL betting tips.

American Football

Rugby American football is a sport of a regional nature, but given the vastness of the American market and the huge popularity of the discipline, all top online bookmakers include it in their sport libraries. Betway has done its best to provide punters with an abundance of betting options from the collegiate and professional leagues of the USA and Canada.

Punters can choose between more than 100 betting markets for each match. Apart from the usual bet types, you can also wager on diverse player and game props, player specials, and a selection of pre-built bets.

Soccer 1st Goal, Both Teams To Score, Double Chance, Correct Score, Draw No Bet, Total Goals Odd/Even

RacebookBetway does not have a separate racebook on offer, but this doesn’t mean racing fans are left with no options to choose from. On the contrary, bets are accepted on horse racing, which is extremely popular among punters from all countries and nationalities. The other disciplines are greyhounds and motorsports which also receive decent coverage.

Horse Racing

Horse racing The number of options in the horse racing section is indeed staggering. Events from all prestigious race tracks in the UK, Ireland, France, and South Africa are covered. Bets are accepted on races that are underway, but Ante-Post wagers are an alternative, too.

Extensive information is published on all races. This includes a short commentary, each participating horse’s age, weight, and form, the jockey’s name, and the current odds. Information regarding the horses’ performance in previous races is also available to help punters assess the runners’ chances of winning in the current race. Truth be told, this is probably one of the most extensive horse racing portfolios we have ever seen – many racetracks are featured on Betway’s list – Grand National, Royal Ascot, Kempton, Cheltenham Festival, Galway, Leopardstown, Le Mans, etc.

Greyhound Racing

Greyhound As regards greyhounds, the section is totally directed towards UK & Ireland races. However, this does not mean that punters have just a few events to bet on. In fact, Betway provides around 150 races every day, many of them accompanied by live streaming so you can feel the thrill of the real competition.

The online sportsbook provides greyhounds odds for sprint races, stayers races, marathon races, and hurdle races. Some of the featured tracks are Perry Barr, Swindon, Sheffield, and Newcastle.


Motorsports In the motorsports section, you are given the opportunity to choose between three alternatives, the first one being Formula 1 racing. Undoubtedly, this is a rather exciting option as many different factors should be taken into consideration. These include the weather conditions, the drivers’ starting positions, the circuit characteristics (whether it is street, road, or race circuit), and tire management. Another important thing to mention is that the engines typically undergo dramatic changes all throughout the season. So, punters are advised to consider carefully all of the above-mentioned factors before they back any of the drivers listed in Betway’s Formula 1 subcategory. The bookmaker also allows for bets to be placed on the Constructors Championship.

If NASCAR suits your preferences more, you can always bet on your favorite driver as this high-speed sport is available at Betway as well. Punters can place their bets before the season starts and try to predict what will be the final result at the end of the year. The other option you have is to try to guess the winner in each particular race. Keep in mind that betting on NASCAR may not be available in your country of residence.

Racebook Popular Markets Summary
Horse Racing Race Winner, Top 3 Finish, Insurebet – 3 Paces, To Finish 2nd
Greyhounds Win Bet, Each Way, Straight Forecast, Reverse Forecast, Tricast, Combination Tricast
Motorsports Winner, Money Line, Spread, Over/Under

Mobile Betting

Mobile Betting As Betway is one of the leaders in the sports betting industry, it does its best to cater to punters’ growing demands for greater convenience and more flexible betting experience. One way to achieve this is to provide them with the option to place bets using their mobile devices. This way, they will be able to keep track of the ever-changing odds of the in-play markets and place their bets wherever they happen to be.

That is why the sportsbook has a mobile version and can be accessed through portable devices, such as smartphones or tablets. To load the mobile version, you simply need to enter the website’s address into your device’s address bar. Betway is compatible with all widespread devices like those running on iOS, Android and Windows.

Your second option is to download and install the Betway mobile application. That being said, please note the mobile version and the downloadable application work and look exactly the same way. Those of you, who use iOS-based devices can head to the App Store and look for the Betway mobile app there. Just type the name Betway into the App Store on your mobile device and you should be able to download the application free of charge. Users of Android devices can download the application from Google Play. Betway’s mobile app can also be found in the list of Windows dedicated apps on the Microsoft website.

The mobile application is very easy to use. And the best part is it enables you to bet on the go on a great array of sports and markets. Using the app, you can submit your bets quickly and conveniently. Once you click on the game’s outcome you have picked, the bet will be added automatically to your bet slip. Once you have added all bets you wish to place, open the bet slip and enter the amounts of your stakes. Then click on the “Place Bet” button and you are done. What’s so great about the app and the mobile version is that they both cover the same events, so you will be able to pick from the same outstanding variety of markets and sports.

Bonuses and Promotions

Bonuses The attractive bonuses and promotions are yet another reason why so many enthusiastic sports fans decide to join the large Betway community. In this respect, the sportsbook has plenty to offer. You will be greeted with a special welcome bonus right after your registration has been completed. Only one welcome bonus per person, household address, or bank account number is permitted.

US Welcome Offer

US Welcome OfferBetway provides different welcome offers depending on the country of residence. Currently, newly registered punters from the USA (New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Indiana, and Iowa) can benefit from a $250 Risk-Free Bet promotion. The offer comes with several conditions, the first being to make a first deposit of at least $10. Qualifying wagers are those with betting odds of at least –300 (1.33), which have been placed within 7 days after setting up the relevant account.

If the Risk-Free Bet is a winning one, no bonus amount will be credited to the user’s balance, just the applicable payout. On the contrary, if the qualifying bet is a losing one, the punter is entitled to receive a sum equal to the Risk-Free Bet up to $250. Keep in mind, however, that if you make a winning wager using free bets funds, you will only get the respective winnings, not including the original stake. Any free bets expire 7 days after being credited.

EU Welcome Offer

EU Welcome OfferThere is a second welcome offer that applies to residents of several European countries including Germany. Similarly to the US promotion, bettors receive free bets in case the first bet turns out to be a losing one. The eventual refund of up to €150 comes in two parts. The first (50%) is credited as soon as the wager is confirmed as unsuccessful and the second upon completing the account verification procedure.

The minimum eligible bet for this offer is €0.10 at odds of at least 1.1 and must be placed within 30 days after registration. When using the free bets you can only receive the relevant net winning.

UK Welcome Offer

UK Welcome OfferAll newly registered punters from the UK can benefit from a £10 welcome bonus in the form of free bets. The free bets come with no special wagering requirements. Any winnings originating from free bets will be credited to the bettor’s account balance minus the original bet amount.

The odds requirements depend on the type of bet you place. For instance, single bets should be placed at odds of 1.75 or over; the odds for each-way bets should be at least 1.40; the latter is also valid for combination bets with multiple selections. Those of you who qualify will receive up to £10 in free bets. What is specific about the UK Welcome Offer is that the only eligible bets are the ones originating from debit card deposits.

The free bets’ validity period is 7 days after the qualifying deposit has been made.

Multi Boost

Bet Boost Betway has a lucrative Multi Boost promotion for its European users that may bring up to €10,000. As the name suggests, this offer is intended for punters who place accumulator bets. To qualify for the promotion, you must make at least 4 pre-match selections with minimum odds of 1.4.

Odds are boosted with different percentages depending on the number of selections. Bettors are awarded a 5% boost for 4 selections and a 100% boost for 20 or more selections. Any additional winnings will be credited within 24 hours of the bet payment.

Single, system, and live bets are not eligible. If you decide to apply the Cash-Out function on your accumulator bet, no odds boost will be initiated. If any of the events within the combo is canceled or postponed, the boost will be adjusted accordingly. This means that if you have placed a 4-fold accumulator and one of the selections is not conducted, you will not be eligible for the promotion.

Bonuses and Promotions Summary
Up to $250 US Welcome Offer Applies to newly registered punters from the states of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Indiana, and Iowa. Up to $250 in free bets can be received in case of a losing bet. Requirements: first deposit of at least $10; wagers at minimum odds of 1.3 within 7 days after registration.

Banking and Payment Methods

Banking We’ve already mentioned that depositing funds into your account is a necessary step if you wish to be rewarded with one of the available bonuses. Thankfully, Betway works with many reliable and quick payment solutions, so you would hardly experience any troubles in finding a method that suits you. Some of the most popular deposit options include Mastercard and Visa and Maestro credit/debit cards, InstaDebit, Paysafecard, Skrill, PayPal, Neteller, and Rapid Transfer. Withdrawals, on the other hand, can be processed via Skrill, PayPal, Visa, and Neteller. Please note, these may vary, depending on your country of residence.

Debit & Credit Cards

Cards Executing transactions via debit or credit cards is easy for all punters since this is the payment method that we are all used to. Betway has made sure that all supported deposit methods are instant and Mastercard and Visa make no exception. However, your first deposit may take some time, in order to complete your account validation.

Betway imposes no maximum limits on deposits and withdrawals. When cashing out you must keep in mind that there is a 24-hour processing time for each transaction. If Mastercard or Visa is your selected payment method, you will be able to access your winnings in between 1 and 5 business days.

Digital Wallets

E-wallet If an online sports betting platform wants to be among the top brands throughout the world, there is no way not to include eWallets in its supported payment methods. This is due to the fact that a growing number of punters are using this payment solution because it provides for faster transactions with a limited amount of personal information shared.

Betway has several proposals in this banking category and their availability highly depends on the country of residence. Punters can top up their accounts via Skrill, Neteller, and PayPal as the same methods can be used for withdrawals too. The usual minimum transaction amount is €10 or equivalent in another accepted currency. Deposits are instant while withdrawals may take up to 36 hours.

Prepaid Vouchers

Prepaid Voucher If anonymity is your top priority regarding online payments and deposits to sportsbook accounts, in particular, you are probably already using Paysafecard. It is among the popular deposit methods as virtually no personal and banking information is shared. Bettors can buy prepaid vouchers from multiple locations and load them with as much money as they need. As soon as they enter the relevant 16-digit code, their account balance is funded and they can start betting.

When Paysafecard was first launched it was suited only for deposits. Withdrawals have recently become possible, but Betway and many other online bookmakers still do not accept this cashout solution.

Another trusted option is Neosurf, one of the first prepaid solutions that became popular among online bettors. In addition to the traditional physical vouchers, the company offers the MyNeosurf digital wallet and the special Neosurf prepaid Mastercard. Enter your Betway cashier section to check if Neosurf is available within your current location.

Customer Support

QA The level of customer care service is a top priority when choosing an online sportsbook. Betway is bent on providing the best customer support possible. A team of obliging experts is available at all times to answer punters’ inquiries or help them eliminate any ensuing problems. The friendly team can be reached via live chat or email.

The online sportsbook also has a detailed help page where you can find the answers to the most frequently asked questions. If reading long explanations is not your thing, you can watch the multiple useful videos prepared by the customer care team.

The betting site may be differently arranged for some markets but the FAQ section generally contains the same information. If you do not find the relevant info in the Responsible Gaming, Deposits, Withdrawals, Account, Security, Technical Issues, and Sports categories, you can submit a ticket or start a live chat session. To send your inquiry, you will have to fill in your name and email address.

Punters from countries that have a separate Betway website can take advantage of customer support in their native language. Betway states that if a local customer care representative is currently not available, he is always backed by an English-speaking agent.

Licensing and Country Availability

Licensing Betway takes great pride in the high-end services it offers and there is a good reason why. First of all, Betway does its best to ensure all customers enjoy a secure and most of all, fair betting environment. Punters, who register with this sportsbook can rest assured their personal and banking details are well-protected by the best cryptographic technology. This will make it impossible for ill-intended individuals to steal the personal and financial data customers share when registering.

Given the above, it is no surprise that the betting provider has acquired several licenses issued by reputable regulation authorities. These include the Malta Gaming Authority and the UK Gambling Commission. As regards the US market, Betway has concluded cooperation agreements with local land-based operators and is now legally functioning in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Indiana, and Iowa.

Considering all the positive features of Betway already discussed, it is quite disappointing that the betting platform is not available to a long list of countries. As this is a dynamic issue the most accurate way to check if your country is restricted is to go through the list within the registration form. A small part of the currently restricted countries is Australia, Argentina, and the Netherlands.
