Betway is one of the largest bookmakers you’ll find on the internet, and one that places the customer at the heart of everything they do.
If you’ve not already checked out the site it would be wise to do so, because Betway offer one of the largest selections of markets you’ll find. So, whether you’re looking to put a 10-fold acca together, or simply fancy having a go on the day’s horses, Betway will very likely offer the market for you.
Popular Offers & Features
Betway have two really generous offers which are open to all players, and we’ll list them below along with a little information about each:
Betway Free Bet Club
The Free Bet Club offers a fantastic weekly bonus, and all you need to do is opt-in and spend at least £25 on any treble or higher (meaning four-folds and accas are fine as well), and you’ll be credited with £10 in free bets to use however you like, subject to terms and conditions.
The terms of the offer are shown below:
- You must opt-in on the free bet page (found via the ‘Promotions’ page) in order to be eligible for the promotion. Once you’ve opted in the first time, you won’t have to do so again.
- You must bet at least £25 each week to be eligible for the free bet.
- The free bet will be distributed in the form of 2 X £5 bets. The first will be credited at midday on Saturday, with the second credited at 2PM on Monday.
- The only markets you can’t use your free bets on are enhanced price offers and Betway boosts.
- The free bets must be placed on selections with odds of at least 2/1.
Other than these few terms and conditions there’s not a lot of red tape, and the Free Bet Club is definitely worth opting in to – especially if you usually bet £25 a week anyway.
4 To Score
Like some of the other big-name bookmakers (Sky Bet and BetVictor in particular), Betway offer players a free opportunity to win a huge prize each week by correctly predicting football results.
Betway put up £25,000 of their own cash, and you simply need to pick the team you think will score the first goal across 4 divisions. The divisions are the Premier League, the Championship, League 1, and League 2. If you pick correctly, you win 25k in cold hard cash. In the event of a tie the prize is split between all winners – but this hasn’t happened as of yet.
In order to participate you just need a valid Betway account, then you’ll be able to make your picks before the games begin on Saturday.
The loyalty program is based on points, or comp points as they are commonly known within the online casino industry. At Betway this consists of Tier Tokens, Plus Points, and six different loyalty tiers – Blue, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Black. The more you play, the more you are rewarded, and you’ll climb up the ladder gaining new benefits and enhanced bonuses as you go. You will be automatically enrolled in the loyalty scheme from the moment you sign up and start betting.
You earn both Tier Tokens (which determine your loyalty tier) and Plus Points whenever you play. Once you’ve accumulated at least 5,000 Plus Points you’ll be able to start exchanging them for real bonus cash, and this equates to betting for free.
Betway’s loyalty program is a good feature as it doesn’t require you to bet a certain amount or complete any wagering requirements each week, you just bet as you normally would and you’ll slowly be rewarded over time with £10 for every 5,000 points you earn.
Note: It’s only possible to exchange your points in multiples of 5,000. This means you’ll be getting a minimum £10 bet each time you cash in your points.
The Betway Website
Betway offer one of the most reliable and aesthetically pleasing websites in the industry, and it’s no surprise that so many players flock to the site to enjoy it.
In the follow section we’re going to take a look at some of the core features that have helped Betway build the reputation they enjoy today, and we’ll begin by looking at their in-play betting options, which have helped the company grow exponentially in recent years.
The in-play sporting section is one of the most comprehensive on the web and you’ll find a huge range of markets to choose from, all offering exciting, realistic, and potentially profitable in-play betting.
In order to access the in-play markets, click the ‘Go to In-Play’ button which is coloured green and appears at the top of the navigation menu on the left-hand side of your screen. Once inside, you’ll be faced with a large number of betting options which you can categorise or search directly, to ensure you always find the market and event to suit you.
As we see with most bookmakers these days, cashout facilities are available on all eligible bets on your bet slip, and at any point during the event.
While Betway has received some criticism in the past for offering what could only be described as miserly cashout prices, the bookmaker has really upped its game since, and is generally considered one of the better sites out there for cashout odds.
If your bet does qualify, you’ll see a big green ‘Cashout’ button underneath the bet on your bet slip, and this button will display the offer Betway are making you. From there it’s up to you to decide whether or not to take it.
Betway offer a mobile App to all iOS and Android players, and this allows you to place bets on the go, manage your account, check scores, cashout, and more – without having to log into the website through your internet browser.
To get started, simply search ‘Betway Sports’ in the AppStore if you’re an iOS player, or if you’re on an Android device head to the Betway website and download the app from the ‘Mobile’ page. The reason Android players must take this extra step is because Google no longer allow real money gambling apps on the PlayStore.
Huge Market Selection
Possibly their biggest claim to fame is the huge range of sports betting markets they offer.
No matter if you want to place football bets (including both teams to score in both halves – a rare bet not seen at all bookies), or you want to place Asian Handicap bets on some American Football matches, Betway have it all. You can view the full list of sports from the homepage using the handy navigation menu on the left-hand side of the page.
Betway are always adding new markets and events too, and while they don’t officially operate a request a bet feature, you can email support or use live chat to see if they will offer you a price on a market you want to bet on that you can’t find.
As a leading name in the online gambling industry, people have high expectations of Betway and expect the bookie to live up to these expectations. One of the ways in which Betway have tried to keep everyone happy is through their banking facilities.
Usually, UK punters are limited to a couple of debit/credit card options, along with some virtual pre-paid schemes no-one’s ever heard of, but not at Betway.
The cashier facility allows you to deposit and withdraw from your account in a number of different ways, and in the table below we’ll cover some of the most popular options along with the minimum deposit and withdrawal amounts associated with each.
|Payment method||Minimum Deposit||Minimum Withdrawal|
|VISA Debit/Credit Cards||£5||£10|
As you can see, Betway offer relatively low minimums in terms of deposits and withdrawals, and for the vast majority of the payment methods offered you’ll be able to add funds to your account for as little as a fiver.
For a full list of all available payment methods, log in to your account and head to the ‘Cashier’ area of the site. You’ll then be able to see a complete breakdown and can choose the method most suitable for you.
In terms of withdrawal times, they officially state that withdrawals will be processed within 48 hours – but from what most punters appear to be saying online it’s generally a lot quicker than this, with most requests processed in around 8 hours.
To ensure your withdrawal is processed as speedily as possible go ahead and fully verify your account. Something which Betway take very seriously is their KYC (Know Your Customer) responsibilities, and this legal requirement requires the site to verify player’s identities. You just need to upload or email a picture of your driving license or passport, along with a scan, photocopy, or photo of a recent utility bill as proof of address.
