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.

Official Betway website

Betway Insider

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.

Security methods

Security methods

Two licences (the British Gambling Commission and the Malta Gambling Authority) allow the company to give their customers the maximum level of security when using the betting product. The Privacy Policy details how data is stored and outlines the overall security framework for the site and mobile app.

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.

Welcome Bonus from Betway

Promo codes

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.

Additional features

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

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.

Bid Builder


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.

Partial cache-out capability

Cash Out

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.

Final say

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.



Registration w BC

It is not hard to set up an account at Betway. All you have to do is enter your basic personal details correctly. The first step is to state your first name, last name and date of birth so you can verify your age. After proceeding to the next stage, you need to fill in all the information about your gaming account. Obligatory data includes a login, password as well as an e-mail address for feedback.

Do you enter your home address and mobile number in the third step, after which the account is created and you can start betting? No, as a mandatory parameter you have to specify your time-based limits, which is a must for responsible betting.

The account currency and the language of the site are chosen automatically. So if the user decides to show originality here, he should correct the choice, otherwise it will be impossible to do it later. There are 12 currencies and ten languages available including Suomi, Norsk, Italiano & Espanol.

Restrictions on registration

But even after choosing the currency and language of your betting account the odds line will not open for you. Before placing your first bet, the bookmaker will ask you to verify your account, which is a very strict requirement. You will also not be allowed to register if you are under the age of 18.


This bookmaker is rather loyal as far as the transactions are concerned. There are seven deposit channels, the same number of withdrawal methods to external wallets. The minimum financial bar is set at £10, but the maximums are not limited. There is also zero commission, regardless of how the customer deposits money into their gaming account. On average, the waiting time for deposits does not exceed 24 hours, but most often the money arrives at its destination within a few minutes.

Cryptocurrency wallets have not yet been implemented at Betway for depositing and receiving payouts from the game account. You will not be able to use any other methods except bank cards. Unless you wish to take part in the bookmaker's welcome offer, you may.

Pre-match line

Not more than thirty sports are regularly covered in this bookmaker's line-up. That said, the line-up and margins allow regular use. Even in not the most popular football match a client can easily find about 100 markets. The stakes margin rarely exceeds 5%, which is a very good number in comparison with the competition. Importantly, this does not change when you switch leagues or countries.

The Betway Boosts bonus improves the impression of the line even more, there are plenty of offers on the line for every little interesting football match. Especially when it comes to facing English teams. The option to change the odds depending on your habits has been implemented both on the Betway website and on the mobile app.

Outright markets for political events and television shows are represented in the odds list. If you already have a favourite from the next season of MasterChef, now is the time to bet in their favour.

Line analyses - odds & markets Betway

LIVE betting mode

In-play is difficult to catch a good market because of the low numbers. But finding the mode itself is not difficult - scrolling through the betting shop's home page won't let you miss, because the section is fixed. On the other hand, should we pay so much attention to play, if there really is nothing to choose from? Unless you only like to bet on the top teams from the leading football championships.

Betting on esport

Betting on esport

A good selection of events are available both before and during cyber sports events. The important thing is that all the popular esport disciplines are also involved in Betway's popular bonuses. That's why many customers bet in CSGO expresses, or take advantage of the increased prices.


It is hard to call customer support at least satisfactory. It is not available 24 hours a day, only live-chat is free for feedback and the speed and quality of replies leaves much to be desired. It is possible to get in touch with an adviser until midnight, starting at 6 o'clock in the morning. In other words, the six night hours are a dead zone. So even if you like to bet on the NHL or NBA and you have urgent questions during the night live, don't expect any help.

Lots of answers to frequently asked questions by customers are already given in the FAQ section. This does not make up for all the inconvenience, which is usually caused by poor feedback from Betway's technical advisors.
