Betway Sports Review
Betway is a casino site that operates with licensing from the Gambling Commission in the UK and from the Malta Gaming Authority outside of the UK. The site has recently partnered with West Ham United football team to become its official long-term sponsor: not only will the Betway logo appear on all the senior players’ shirts, Betway will also have naming rights to the Boleyn Ground’s West Stand. On top of that, Betway has recently become the sponsor of the recently renamed Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase, one of the Cheltenham Festival’s most renowned events. If that’s not enough, Betway is also the sponsor of Betway Premier League Darts. This casino was developed in 2006 by a group of sports enthusiasts who wanted to establish a site that gives its customers the most betting options and the opportunity to bet how they want to bet.
Games and sports
One of the best things about Betway is the huge number of offerings it has. These are split into five categories: sports, casino, Vegas, poker and bingo, with plenty to choose from in each category. In the sport section you’ll find over 30,000 betting markets, with sporting events including football, horse racing, tennis and rugby union, as well as other events such as politics. You’ll also find less popular sports, such as beach volleyball, pesapallo, handball and more. Live betting and in-play betting are both available. If casino games are your thing, you can try some of the 500 classic games which have a pay-out percentage of 97%. Over in the Vegas section, you’ll find loads more games to choose from, including classic casino games and slots. The poker section is home to some of the world’s biggest poker events and features anonymous tables and plenty of tournaments held regularly. The bingo section is where you’ll find 75- and 90-ball bingo rooms, along with a host of chat games, free bingo games, bonuses and promotions.
Promotions and bonuses
Betway offers plenty of promotions and bonuses across all five of its sub-sites. Sign up to the sports site and you’ll get a free £50 to bet with. The casino site and the Vegas site each offer a welcome bonus of a huge £1000 which is paid out as match deposits for your first three deposits. Over on the poker site you can look forward to receiving a huge 250% first deposit bonus of up to £750; you’ll also find a number of promotions, including the Bad Beat Jackpot, Blaze Poker and Anonymous Tables. Deposit £10 at the bingo site and you’ll get to play with £40. Most of these promotions are welcome bonuses – there may very well be more promotions that you only find out about once you actually sign up to the site.
Betway does have a VIP scheme, Betway Plus, which allows you to earn Plus Points every time you place a wager. The scheme has six different tiers for you to work through by wagering money and earning Plus Points. The higher your level, the more rewards you’ll be entitled to. You receive 5 Plus Points for every €10 you wager. Once you’ve earned 5,000 Plus Points you’ll then be able to convert your points into money for sports bets, casino credits or bingo credits.
It’s clear to see why Betway is regarded as one of the top casinos, given its huge range of games and betting opportunities. The site is simple to navigate and is helpfully split into five sub-sites, with each offering loads of games, with something for everyone. Not every one of these sub-sites seems to offer as many promotions as you would expect, but it may well be that promotions are only visible to those who have signed up to become members. With hundreds of games and thousands of betting opportunities, Betway is the way to go.
