Betway.com is one of the major online sports book brands. Having been online since 2002, it is easy to see why. They have consistently offered a wide selection of sports, games and wagering options. They also offer an online casino and poker room, making it unnecessary for punters to go anywhere else, no matter what type of action you are craving. Couple this with some nice bonuses, the use of multiple languages and currencies, and unique options such as live betting and mobile access, and it clearly shows that this site should be on your short list.
Betway is one of the many leading sports betting sites that uses the MicroGaming software. The interface is smooth and clear; everything is clearly laid out and the mobile app follows in the same intuitive vein. Selecting bets can be done in one click and customers can see multiple statistics and metrics through the software.
There are regular promotions aimed at members, so be sure to always check the site for current details. You will find the link to 'This Week’s Promotions' extraordinarily useful, since there is always quite a variety inside, including money-back specials and enhanced multiples (sometimes even trebles). Away from their association with Man City, there are other offerings which will entice potential users onto the sportsbook.
The wide variety of sports markets allows the Betway site to really shine. This includes a very strong selection of football leagues and matches, including English Premier League, Serie A, La Liga and more. They also offer sports from American football and basketball to darts and horse racing. Betway offers more than 12,000 markets in total. Some also come with as many as 20 wagering options. These include all types, from simple sides and totals to even the most complicated combination wagers, multiples, trebles and more. Best of all, adding them your bet slip requires only a single click.
Betway is most famous for offering a variety of betting on football matches, including the English Premier League, German Bundesliga and Spanish La Liga. Across 30,000 markets, Betway offers a range of simple bets to complex combination and accumulator wagers including multiples.
Making a deposit is easy here, thanks to a number of popular banking options. These include:
...and more. There are even a number of options specific to certain countries (some of them offer additional bonuses or restrictions).
Customer support on the Betway website starts with the comprehensive FAQ pages, perfect for troubleshooting the basic issues. When your enquiry requires a response, you can contact the support team through email and a toll-free phone line. Interactive live chat is also a great way to get in touch, staffed by knowledgeable and friendly operatives.
The first thing to remember when taking a payout is to be sure that you have wagered 6 times the bonus amount that you received. Once this is met, receiving a payout is a simple process. Since the company does follow the normal "know-your-customer" rules, it is possible that you be asked to complete an identity verification process. This normally involves sending in a few pieces of documentation such as a license and a copy of a recent utility bill in your own name. Best of all, this should only be requested once.
One of the coolest things about the Betway site is the fact that they offer a great initial options page. This displays all of the day's most popular games and sporting events. This can even be customized to focus on your favourite games and markets. This helps to make choosing your wagers even quicker. You may notice that from time to time, this sports book is a bit slow to change the lines. This is especially true in some of the minor leagues and sports, but it can lead to some excellent overlays for the astute (and quick!) punter.
The best things about the site are the many sports markets offered plus the wagering options available. It is also quite easy to use the site and the live and mobile betting platforms are excellent values for punters. The only real miss is the fact that they do not accept US players and they can be a bit slow changing the lines at times (although this can work to the advantage of a smart punter).
