Betway Review

Patrick Corkery

Patrick Corkery

Betway is one of the biggest sports betting brands across the pond. Through major sponsorships with Premier League clubs West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur, they've built a strong brand.

They've continued this aggressive strategy by partnering with NBA teams like the Miami Heat and Philadelphia 76ers. Their extensive betting options across both sportsbook and casino platforms make them a force to be reckoned with as they look to expand in the US.

Betway USA Review

Betway is one of the world’s most popular sportsbooks. Through aggressive advertising and sponsorship of major teams, they’ve established themselves as a household name. In the English Premier League, for example, they’re the official betting partner of Tottenham and are the primary jersey sponsor of West Ham United.

This year, Betway is looking to expand their US efforts in a major way and make Betway USA a major American sportsbook. They’ve signed on with numerous NBA teams, such as the Clippers and Bulls, and have recently added the Philadelphia 76ers and Miami Heat to their stable of partners.

Betway partnerships

Betway has partnered with a number of pro teams to boost their brand

But is Betway worth the hype that comes with these big-time deals? The answer is a resounding yes.

Betway greets users with a simple layout and design that’s made to best suit the interests of the user. Both on desktop and mobile, you’ll have no trouble getting the hang of betting on Betway.

The design could certainly stand to be prettier and it’s a bit regrettable that Betway requires different apps in their operating states. However, these minor quibbles are easy to overlook in a great product.

Betway has been aggressive in marketing and backs up these efforts with a great product

Betway is one of the best sportsbooks on the market for returning users. Regular bettors can take advantage of promotions such as daily odds boosts (in the Betway Boosters section) and a flexible risk free bet offer.

If you get tired of betting on sports, you can head over to the Betway Casino and play the hundreds of games available there. It’s truly one of the deepest online casino platforms offered by and US sportsbook, and it’s well worth taking advantage of if you’re interested.

All-in-all, Betway is an incredibly strong online sportsbook. It’s undoubtedly one of the best sportsbooks on the market for regular bettors.

What We Like About Betway

  • Shared wallet with extensive casino platform
  • Very deep variety of sports leagues to bet on
  • Same Game Parlay for basketball and soccer
  • Daily Betway Boosters offer enhanced odds bets

What We Don't Like About Betway

  • Plain design for both desktop site and mobile app
  • Different apps for each state can be inconvenient

Betway App

Betway App

Betway presents a solid app experience, but is held back by the inconvenient rollout by state

The Betway app can be a bit of a mixed bag at times. On one hand, we like the minimalistic design choices and smooth betting experience. On the other hand, Betway requires users to download separate apps to wager in different states.

This is similar to how Unibet has set up its app infrastructure. We tend to ding sportsbook apps for this design choice and we can’t pull our punches on this one either.

It’s a shame because, in many other ways, the Betway app is really nice! Users have very easy access to Betway’s deep selection of sports leagues. Plus, the diversified bettor can easily access the full functionality of Betway’s casino without having to download a second app.

Overall, Betway’s app is a solid offering that is a bit hamstrung by distribution choices. Still, we can’t wait to see how Betway’s app evolves over time.

Reviewer

I'll admit it - I was a bit skeptical about Betway. I've been doing this long enough to know that when a company spends a lot of money on advertising and sponsorship, it's often to make up for a lackluster product.

But I was wrong. This sportsbook more than lives up to its billing and truly allows users to bet their way. Betway is absolutely one of the best sportsbooks in the US, and only looks poised to grow.

Betway Payment Options

In terms of payment options, Betway features a fairly standard set of options. You can take advantage of deposit and withdrawal methods such as PayPal, ACH transfers, and credit & debit card deposits.

In the future, we’d prefer to see more e-wallets available, but Betway meets the standard set by rival online sportsbooks with the given set of options.

Betway Deposit Methods

Bettors on DraftKings Sportsbook can take advantage of the following deposit options:

  • Visa & MasterCard Credit/Debit Cards
  • PayPal
  • Betway Play + Card
  • PayNearMe
  • ACH Transfer
  • Cash at Casino Cage

For any method, the minimum deposit is $10, right around the industry standard. Typically, deposits are readily available within your account within minutes, so you never have to wait to start playing.

As with much of their payment infrastructure, Betway’s suite of deposit methods is fairly par for the course. More card and e-wallet options would be nice, but it’s hard to complain about what’s available.

Betway Withdrawal Methods

You’ve got the following options at your disposal to withdraw money from your Betway account:

  • PayPal
  • ACH Transfer
  • Betway Play+ Card
  • Cash at Casino Cage

The minimum withdrawal is $10, which is about average for the sports betting industry. Luckily, it’s much better than DraftKings Sportsbook and BetMGM’s ridiculous $20 minimum withdrawal requirement.

Betway only guarantees withdrawals to be processed within 7 days, but in our experience testing the site the timeline was usually shorter than that.

Overall, a lower minimum withdrawal and quicker guaranteed turnaround time would be nice, but the withdrawal process is solid overall.

Betway PayPal

Betway offers PayPal support for deposits and withdrawals. Given the fact that users cannot withdraw to their credit and debit cards, PayPal is the most convenient two-way payment option on Betway!

Minimum withdrawals and deposits are the same amounts with PayPal as they are with other payment options.

Unfortunately, PayPal is the only e-wallet available for use on the site. In the future, we hope to see more added!

Betting Variety

Betway offers a wide variety of sports for users to wager on. Major sports offered include:

  • Football
  • Basketball
  • Baseball
  • Soccer
  • Golf
  • Tennis
  • Hockey

While the sheer totality of sports offered may not be as high as some other betting sites, Betway digs deep to give users a high number of leagues to choose from within each sport.

For example, hockey bettors obviously can wager on the NHL. However, true fanatics can also bet on foreign leagues like the Russian KHL and Swedish Hockey League.

Users have the standard set of straight bets, parlay bets, round robins, and teasers at their disposal. Soccer and basketball bettors can also take advantage of Same Game Parlays, which allow you to combine different outcomes from a single game into a wager with boosted odds.

Betway features a deep selection of foreign leagues for many sports, including hockey

My favorite sport to bet on with Betway
Ben Smith

Ben Smith

Although I’ve come to adore American sports, as a Brit, my first love will always be Soccer (yes, it does kind of hurt for me to call it that).

On Betway, I can take advantage of the Soccer Same Game Parlay functionality to make betting on the beautiful game that much more exciting. So next time I want to bet on Mo Salah and Sadio Mane to score in a 2+ goal Liverpool victory over United, I can.

Betway Live Betting

There’s no doubt that Betway comes correct when it comes to the live betting experience.

Betway’s live betting options rise solidly above the pack with countless in-play bets available across various markets for just about every major sport.

The live experience is buoyed by phenomenally fast-updating odds and great live game tracking. Bettors don't have to worry about lag or technical issues messing with their live betting experience on Betway.

Betway Live Streaming

Betway offers limited live streaming of more niche sports, such as lower-level soccer and basketball to small tennis and volleyball tournaments.

Betway is a major live streaming betting platform in the UK, so we hope that they decide to expand their US offerings in this arena in the future. As the sportsbook tries to continue its American expansion, it would make sense to expand on this feature moving forward.

Betway Sportsbook Features

Betway Parlay

As you’d expect, Betway allows users to combine multiple outcomes into single parlay bets. As stated above, Betway also offers Same Game Parlay betting for basketball and soccer match-ups. This is one of our favorite ways to play, so we hope this feature is expanded upon in the future.

Betway Odds

Betway sources their odds from SBTech, which is a sports betting platform also used by Golden Nugget, the Oregon Lottery, and soon DraftKings Sportsbook. This ensures that Betway has competitive odds in the sports betting marketplace.

Betway Cash Out

Betway offers users the ability to cash out their bets early. So, if you’re feeling uneasy about the outcome of one of your wagers while an event is unfolding, you can easily cash out your bet at a prorated price to lock in some winnings early or stop the bleeding on a losing bet.

Betway Casino

Betway Casino

Betway Casino features an astounding variety of games to choose from

If you like to wet your beak in a wide variety of ways, Betway also has an online casino of which users can take advantage. Here, you’ll find an impressive range of games upon which to bet.

Betway Casino features literally hundreds of different slot games that users can play. There are several pop culture-inspired versions, including Anchorman, Motorhead, Gordon Ramsey, and Narcos-branded virtual slot machines.

You can also take advantage of table games like Blackjack, Roulette, and Baccarat or indulge yourself in video poker.

For casino gamblers, there’s a true embarrassment of riches here, although the addition of live dealer games would cement the Betway Casino as one of the best on the market.

Betway Casino Bonus

100% Deposit Bonus up to $1,000

Unlike their sportsbook welcome bonus, Betway’s casino bonus comes in the form of a matched deposit bonus.

After registering with the Betway casino, deposit a minimum of $10. The platform will match your deposit up to $1,000!

You will have to satisfy an extensive 30x playthrough requirement in order to convert your bonus back into real cash, but you’ll at least get some free plays in the meantime.

Key Terms & Conditions
  • Must satisfy 30x playthrough requirement in order to convert free bet back into cash
  • Cannot be combined with sportsbook welcome bonus
  • Offer expires 30 days after qualifying deposit
  • Only eligible for players in NJ & PA at least 21 years old

Betway Customer Service

Betway users experiencing some difficulties with the sportsbook can take advantage of Betway’s customer support options.

There is a dedicated FAQ section on the website that gives users answers to any common questions they may have, although we noticed some information was in need of an update so you can’t take that word as gospel.

If you need more help than the FAQ can provide, there is also a live chat feature. I personally tested out the live chat functionality while creating this review, and I can assure you that responses are quick and helpful.

Other than that, you can fill out a contact form to submit a ticket on your issue. Again, responses here are usually quick and helpful. A dedicated phone line or even email address would improve the quality of Betway’s customer service, but there’s no denying that the options that are available will more than likely be effective in solving most issues that will arise during your time on the site.

Betway Review Summary

Betway Review

by Patrick Corkery

Betway has been making great strides to expand its business in the US. Through major partnerships, there's no doubt that Betway will grow to a stature similar to where they stand in the rest of the world.

But it's not just marketing money and hype - Betway is one of the best online sportsbooks currently available.

Incredibly rewarding for returning bettors

Betway's simple design makes both the desktop site and mobile app very easy to use. While the aesthetic pleasure of a PointsBet or FanDuel Sportsbook may be missing, that won't affect your enjoyment of the platform too much in our opinion.

You'll also be able to take advantage of Betway's flexible sign up bonus and impressive suite of betting promotions to get the most out of your money.

Betway also features one of the deepest casino experiences you'll likely ever find from an online sportsbook, with hundreds of games to play. This offers bettors a ton of variety and keeps things fresh for bettors that prefer a varied gambling experience.

Whan taking all of this into consideration, Betway has to be considered one of the best online sportsbooks available for returning users.

Would you recommend Betway?

Yes. While you may miss out on some aesthetics we've become accustomed to, Betway is seriously worthy of consideration.
