A relatively young betting operator in the UK market, which was founded in 2006 in the United States, but for a long time could not make it to the top of the British bookmakers' rankings. Nevertheless, having picked up some bumps, including with its advertising contracts, Betway can boast a fair amount of positivity in terms of its own customer service in 2023.
In today's review, we'll take a look at the current features of the different Betway betting destinations. We will also take a detailed look at the features of the mobile app, evaluate the bonus program and come to a general conclusion.
Official Betway website
At first glance there seems to be lots of features on the official Betway website. That is not really the case, just look at the way the information is structured. In the slider in the centre, everyone will find comprehensive information about the bonuses that are currently available. Below the slider, you will find the current odds line. The complete list of sports to bet on is in the menu on the left, and the most popular disciplines are also duplicated on top.
The colour palette is dominated by white and black, diluted by grey and green, which is strong and pretty, but also original.
A few flattering words should be said about the bookmaker's Insider section. The Betway Insider blog allows users to learn how to place bets, select events and even get some tips. And their usefulness is very substantive, because it allows you to be in the black with a sufficient level of equanimity. The company does not shy away from publishing tips from experienced and reputable tipsters, which can be detrimental. But the principles of fair and responsible gaming are more important to Betway than short-term financial gain. The articles are updated daily by the way.
Welcome Bonus from Betway
There is only one welcome bonus available for new punters on the betting shop website. If your first multi betting odds of 3.00 are lost, Betway will give you £30 back as a free bet. This offer will be valid for 7 days from the moment you sign up. Minimum number of events in acca is three or more. You may bet on all markets.
As of July 2023, the bookmaker does not have any promo codes.
Offers for current clients
The bookie offers 8-9 regular bonuses for current clients, which are dedicated to different disciplines and betting markets. And, as with the new player bonus, most of the offers are dedicated to betting odds.
For example, there's a special freebet for Betway's existing customers in the list of promotions for bookmaker-selected matches in the English Premier League football tour. 4 to Score and 4 to Win bonus options are also available. In football and horse racing, they offer to guess the authors of the first goal and the position of the horses at the finish of the race in specific events.
There are also regular offers for fans of boosts and a guarantee of maximum odds on horse racing. There are also bonuses that cover certain periods within a given week, ranging from four to seven days. And there are freebets clubs, as well as other rewards for activity. At the same time, the company does not have a loyalty club and VIP program as such. But the extensive bonus policy more than compensates for such a minor drawback.
Mobile App of Betway
The Betway bookmaker's mobile app gathers good reviews as it is convenient and functional. You can download it for free on the respective marketplaces, depending on the platform you use on your smartphone.
There is an in-play section right on the home screen, so you can get to betting in a single click. If the events you are looking for are not displayed, there is a special filter on the left-hand side which allows the customer to search for the app. Direct links to the online casino and slots services are also clearly visible, adding to the versatility of the mobile product.
We were unable to find anything unusual in Betway's list of additional features. The typical set - betting constructor, early calculation and live streaming of sports events.
Live Streaming from Betway
In order to watch the race, a betting company customer not only needs to be registered and make a deposit, but also has to place a bet on the event you wish to watch. And the betting is for a minimum of £2. In fact, to watch other sports, except races, you can not on Betway, which does not allow you to give this service a positive rating.
Except the traditional bet builder, the official twitter account of the bookie allows the #BetYourWay function. You can use it to offer your market by combining offers on yellow cards, corners and goals from different matches. The betting operator will evaluate your design for odds and willingness to pay winnings.
Betway bookmaker has a partial cash-out facility. You can use it if you have such doubts about your bet that you wish to stay in the market till the last minute and only lose a part of the bet. Along with partial, the user can also apply a full Cash Out, ordering early payouts where the bookmaker allows it.
Our final say will be a mixed bag due to the large contrast between Betway's different lines of business. On the one hand, this bookmaker's prematch line and bonus policy is one of the best on the UK market. On the other hand, to the obvious shortcomings we write poor LIVE, low level of advice provided and lack of football and big tennis broadcasts. Taken together, these factors allow us to give this betting shop a "good" rating, but without too much admiration.
