If you enjoy sports betting in the UK, then you’ve most definitely heard of Betway. They are one of the leading sports betting brands in the UK, with a heavy presence on TV and other media advertising. They are also a complete gambling brand, with casino options and an extensive eSports betting section.
This Betway UK review is aimed at informing you about all Betway has to offer while keeping you safe. We hope the information presented here will help you make an informed choice about whether Betway is the the right sports betting site for you. We include details about the Betway welcome offer, and other important aspects of the Betway UK site.
The Betway new customer offer is very easy to understand, and well worth your while claiming. With the Betway welcome offer you could claim back up to £30 in free bets if your first acca bet at the site fails.
This simple deal is available to any who places an acca bet at the site with a value between £5 and £30. Should good fortune not be on your side and your acca bet is a losing one, you will get back the same value of your acca bet in free bet tokens.
We are now going to go through the Betway new customer offer terms and conditions just so you know what you are doing when claiming it. They are not too complicated, but it is best to understand these Betway welcome offer T&Cs so you do not make a mistake when claiming and lose your bonus.
Your first bet at the site (if you want to claim the Betway welcome offer, as you don’t have to if you don’t want to) must be for at least £5. It must be a bet on Betway football or horse racing markets and an acca bet with a minimum of three selections (not Bet Builder bets or system bets). The overall odds must be 2/1 (3.00) or higher. In addition, your deposit must be made with a debit card (some cards are not accepted – check the T&Cs for details).
If you acca bet is a losing one then you will handed free bets up the size of your stake, maximum £30. Your free bet must be used within seven days and cannot be used on multi-line multiple bets such as Yankees for example. There are no limits to the odds, and your free bet stake isn’t returned if your free bet loses.
|Minimum Bet||Qualified Markets||Expiry Date||Minimum Odds||Withdrawable?|
|£5 on a min 3-leg acca||Football or horse racing||7 days||2/1 (3,0)||No|
Anyone is able to claim the Betway new customer offer if they wish, as long as they are resident in the United Kingdom and of legal gambling age (currently 18 or older). The Betway welcome offer is not mandatory, and you do not have to claim it if you do not wish to.
This offer is for UK residents only. If you are not resident in the UK but live in a jurisdiction from which Betway accepts customers, then Betway will more than likely have a suitable welcome offer for you. Check the site for information.
The process to obtaining your Betway new customer offer is very, very simple. All you really need to do is follow these steps.
As well as the Betway free bet should your first acca bet at the site fail, Betway runs a number of interesting sports betting promotions on a regular basis. For the very latest information it is best that you check the site yourself, as these Betway bonuses do seem to change on a regular basis.
As an example of Betway bonuses and Betway free bet deals, we’ve list a few bonuses we found when we used our own Betway login UK details. This is in tandem with the Betway sign up offer which again, may alter from time to time.
If you don’t like the sound of the £30 acca free bet deal that we have already outlined, then there is an alternative. If you are willing to place a minimum £25 stake wager, then you could receive up to £70 in free bets.
This bonus runs for four weeks, and for each £25 stake you’ll get back two £5 free bets plus a £5 Betway horse racing Cheltenham Pot bet. That’s a total of £15 every week plus if you qualify for all four weeks you’ll get an added £10 Betway free bet.
All qualifying bets must be at minimum odds of 2/1 (3.00), and enhanced prices and eSports bets do not contribute. Check the site or the Betway app for full terms and conditions.
If you’re a fan of betting on competitive video games, then you can sign up for the eSports betting club at Betway. Every week that you wager a minimum of £25 on eSports doubles, trebles and acca you will trigger the award of a £10 Betway free bet that can be used to place another eSports wager.
The usual terms and conditions apply including your Betway free bet stake not being returned when you place your free bet. As always, check the site for full details.
You can get boosted prices on a number of markets at Betway. These are mainly available on football matches, but other markets such as MMA, tennis and eSports are available too.
Check the ‘Betway boosts’ tab to see which specific bets have boosted prices. Unlike odds boosts deal at other UK sports betting sites, your boosted price is paid in full in real cash, and not partly in bonus cash.
The Betway 4 to Win game is a free Betway horse racing markets contest that is run weekly. To enter, all you need to do is predict the winner of four selected horse races. Note, these selections are based on races run at meetings on a Saturday that are broadcast on ITV.
There is one prize of £1,000 that can be won by only one winner each week. There is a tiebreak question you must answer too. If there are multiple winners and no one answers the Betway 4 to Win tiebreak question correctly then the prize is shared.
You do not need to enter a Betway bonus code when you claim any of the bonuses listed above. You simply have to opt-in to the Betway bonuses if you want to claim them.
A Betway promo code is a rare thing to find, as most Betway bonuses do not require one. Should you learn of the existence of one, then just enter the code in the appropriate box when you make your deposit.
That’s all the information you need to know about Betway bonuses, including the Betway sign up offer. Now it’s time to take a detailed look at the Betway sports betting site. If you’ve read other Betway reviews, then you can check to see if we agree with them or not!
Betway horse racing and football markets are the biggest at the Betway sports betting site. The majority of the sports betting action at Betway seems to be centered around these two most popular Betway UK sports betting markets.
Other sports betting flavours are available too, and the full list of available markets is as follows: Football, horse racing, tennis, golf, American football, cricket, darts, eSports, basketball, rugby union, table tennis, UFC/MMA, winter sports, Aussie rules, bandy, baseball, beach volleyball, boxing, cycling, floorball, formula 1, futsal, Gaelic sports, greyhounds, handball, hockey, motor sport, netball, politics, rugby league, snooker, specials, surfing, virtual sports and volleyball.
Betway does offer ‘Best Odds Guaranteed’ but there are limitations. For a start, the offer only stretches as far as UK and Irish Betway horse racing markets.
The deal is from 9am on the day of the race. Any winning horse odds that you back will be based on the best price the horse was at, from 9am on the morning of the race until the race starts.
We checked the odds offer at Betway on all markets and found them to be equivalent to the ones offered by leading UK sports betting sites. There is no need to leave the Betway online betting site if you are a customer to find better odds.
You can be ‘in for a penny’ at the Betway sports betting site as that is the lowest possible stake! Yep, you can really place sports bets on nearly all markets for just one pence. For some bets this limit may be deemed by Betway to be too low, and the site will tell you this when you try and place your bet. The maximum bet again applies to pertaining markets and events. If your bet is too high, then Betway simply won’t accept it.
The maximum daily winning limit at Betway sports betting online is £500,000. This does not apply to all markets though, and indeed for some greyhound events it is as little as £10,000. If you’re a high roller sports betting wise then check the ‘Betting Rules’ section at the Betway online betting site for the most up-to-date information.
Live betting at the Betway betting site is very popular and you can click on the ‘in-play’ tab at any time to get the latest information about the live events currently taking place globally that you can place bets on. The main sports available for live betting are football, basketball, tennis, darts, golf, cricket, table tennis, handball, both rugby codes and eSports.
Cash-out comes hand-in-hand with live betting, and is available for most bets including pre-event bets. This is where you are able to cash out a winning bet before the bet has settled, albeit at a reduced price.
The only live streaming available at Betway is for Betway horse racing markets that are not available for terrestrial broadcast.
You can see which live streaming events are available at Betway – a video symbol is displayed close the name of the event (usually the time and location). Please be aware that to watch the live streaming you must have a bet on the event.
The Betway bet builder is called #BetYourWay. It’s a way of creating your own bets and enhancing your odds and hopefully, your winnings! Simply use the #BetYourWay bet builder to add together your selections and build your bet.
Not all markets are available for the bet builder. If you are interested in building a bet on a specific event then click on the event and check for the BetYourWay tab.
There are no limits to the bet builder at Betway but Betway is under no obligation to automatically accept your #BetYourWay bets. Each bet is reviewed on a bespoke basis before it is accepted.
Beyond what is described above, such as Betway Bet Your Way, Betaway enhanced odds and the Betway 4 to Win free game, there’s little additional functionality. We did find a couple of other interesting aspects, and we have listed them below.
The FAQ section within the Betway customer service portal should perhaps be your first port of call should you run into problems at Betway. Most common queries are answered here, and you can use the search facility to ask a question too.
Should you need more dedicated support click the ‘support’ button at the site. This will open up the FAQ page. Scroll down to the bottom and select the ‘I Have Another Query’ button. There are a few more clicks to go, unfortunately, but eventually the Betway live chat support applet will open.
Live chat is available daily from 9am to 11pm, but is it initially ‘manned’ by a bot … and completely ‘manned’ by a bot. We could not get through to a real person at all, which, we feel, is not good enough.
No other contact options, such as a Betway contact number, are available.
The Betway UK sports betting site is fully operational on mobile devices and you have both options – you can use the website using a browser on your phone, or you can download the Betway app. Out of the two options, we feel downloading the Betway app would be our way to go.
You can either head to the Apple App Store or Google Play and search for the app yourself, or you can head down to the bottom of the site on mobile to get links. Note, you may be prompted to download the Betway app whenever you use the site on mobile.
The Betway app is not just about sports betting. All other aspects of the Betway gambling brand are available via the Betway app, including the casino, live casino. eSports and Betway Vegas.
Betway most definitely began life as a sports betting site, but as is common with nearly all of the leading UK betting brands, Betway offers much more than sports betting online. The other gambling options via the Betway site are as follows:
This is the main casino arm of Betway. Here you will find a very large number of slots from top providers such as Pragmatic Play, Microgaming and others. Also included you’ll find Slingo games and a few table games such as blackjack, roulette, baccarat and casino poker. Look out when you’re at the Betway casino for any Betway free spins deals.
Just to confuse you, there’s a Betway Casino too, which is separate from Betway Vegas. The two look practically identical, so we have no idea why there are two separate sections.
The live casino at Betway seems bespoke to Betway and is provided by On Air Entertainment, which is a live casino provider we’ve rarely encountered before. There are live casino games here from Evolution, Playtech and Pragmatic Play.
Having four names leads to a large number of tables available throughout the day. You can play live games shows, or at live tables for roulette, blackjack, baccarat, dice games and poker games.
Esports are included within the main betting section at Betway but they are deemed important enough to have their own section too. The most popular eSports markets at Betway are League of Legends, DOTA 2 and CS:GO.
Nearly all eSports games available at Betway can be steamed live, both at the Betway UK sports betting site and via the Betway app.
If you’ve played at the Betway bingo site in the UK in the past you’ll no doubt be disappointed to learn that the Betway bingo site and app is no longer available.
There are a number of payment options available at Betway. Please note that to make a deposit at Betway (and claim your Betway new customer offer) you’ll have to prove your identity first. This can be achieved using a UK-issued passport, accepted ID card, driving licence, utility bill or bank statement.
Full details of available payment options at the Betway UK site are listed below.
|Payment Method||Min. Deposit||Min. Withdrawal||Withdrawal Time||Fees|
|Bank Transfer||£25||£25||3-7 days||None|
If you have a Visa debit card then the quickest Betway withdrawal time is available for you. Withdrawing via this method means your withdrawal could be with you instantly. Ewallets are the next best option, as your withdrawal could be with you in under 24 hours. Betway withdrawal time periods are longer than 24 hours for all other withdrawal methods.
Betway are best known for their sponsorship of habitual English Premier League side West Ham United. The name of Betway has been on the shirts of ‘The Hammers’ since 2015. Betway UK have also sponsored the successful eSports team Ninjas in Pyjamas since 2017.
We’re almost at the end of our Betway review and so to summarise, here is what we like the best about the Betway sports betting site, and what about Betway UK we feel could be improved.
Betway is one of the biggest names in the UK sports betting market, and is top among the choices of habitual sports bettors when it comes to placing their sporting wagers. This site has a very good number of Betway horse racing markets, and football markets available at Betway are pretty spectacular too. Most other markets are covered well.
As most Betway reviews have probably told you, the Betway UK site is a safe and steady place at which to place all your sports bets, although there is definitely room to grow. Why not take a look at Betway yourself and see if you agree with our Betway review? Don’t forget that Betway sign up offer!
No, there are no bonus codes required for the Betway new customer offer, or any of the Betway bonuses available at the site currently.
The Betway 4 to Win game is free to enter however, you must be registered at the Betway UK sports betting site in order to enter.
No, you do not. Your single Betway sports betting account covers you for all gambling portals available via the main Betway UK site. Note that Betway bingo is no longer available.
The usual places. For Apple, that is of course the App Store. For Google, it’s Google Play.
Telephone support is not available at Betway, so there is no Betway contact number. Betway live chat is the only available support function available at Betway and that, sadly, is manned purely by a bot.
