Customer Support

Needing support or information on bets and winnings, such as withdrawals of money or types of payment is not a rare occurrence.

Well, Betway offers an active customer service from 08:00 to 24:00, which can be contacted in different ways: a convenient toll-free number, a live chat (for registered users), and the classic email address.

Betting schedule

Betway offers bets on multiple sports, starting from NFL Football, and passing through NBA and NCAA basketball, NHL Hockey, and MLB Baseball. Tennis and the European and international soccer cannot fail: the Grand Slam tournaments (Wimbledon, the US Open, the Australian Open, and Roland Garros), the Champions League, the Europa League and the best national championships: Major League Soccer, Serie A, Bundesliga, Premier League, Liga, and Ligue 1.

This is to cite just the most followed and loved specialties in the world, but through Betway one can also bet on sports that are considered "minor", such as Darts, Golf, Handball, Water polo, Volleyball, Boxing, Cycling, Motorsport, and Motorcycling.

In addition to the classic bets on the final result, the under/over, and the goal/nogoal, Betway allows for betting on at least 40-50 markets for each match. Further, it achieves up to 400 different markets for the most important matches and events... not too bad, isn't it?

Live bets

Live bets, i.e. those that can be placed while the games are in progress, attract an increasing number of users, because they are rich, fast, and they provide such an adrenaline rush that it is hard to resist.

That's why this Malta-based bookmaker offers a really interesting live section, with almost 200 daily events for at least ten different sports.
The only flaw in this case is that it is not yet possible to follow the events in live streaming, an option that most competitors have offered for some time.

Bonuses, promo codes and incentives

Betway welcome bonus and promotions

The welcome bonus, in a way, is the business card of each bookmaker, and it represents the first comparison term for preferring one operator over another.

What about the Betway welcome bonus? This is an excellent offer equal to 100% of bettor's first deposit up to a maximum of $100. The bonus is subject to wagering requirements equal to 6 times its value.

This means that you have to play for an amount that is at least 6 times the value of the bonus in order to then withdraw any winnings. Keep in mind that not all bets contribute the same way because the percentage depends on the value of the odds on which you bet. If they are higher than 1.75 they will contribute 100%, but only 12.5% if they are between 1.74 and 1.30, while those below 1.30 won't contribute to the release of the bonus.

Odds and payouts

Betting is nice because it is a game, but even more so if it proves to be rather profitable. The odds and payout issue is therefore fundamental for understanding how much we are actually earning with our stakes.

Payouts and odds change according to the importance of the competitions, match, and country where the event takes place. Thus, for each sport, we decided to calculate the highest values within which they are included.

With reference to the Betway board, let's take a look at the payout percentages of the sports that are most clicked by fans. Certainly football with values ​​between 93.9% and 95.3%, and Baseball, with a payout between 93.9% and 95.1% stand out among the best paid ones.

Tennis, with percentages between 93.3% and 94.2%, soccer, which records the widest range starting from 92% to get up to 97%, and basketball, which pays between 90.1% and 93.3% follow.

We can therefore note that Betway promotes almost all sports at most, never dropping more than 90% of payouts. A range of this type guarantees the bettor a sort of stability but also excellent earning potential.

Graphical interface and user experience

Everyone likes landing on a site with a beautiful graphic and, most of all, one that is fast loading. We can definitely say that the Betway portal satisfies both of these features. It offers excellent menu navigability and a beautiful black background where white letters stand out.

This combination of colors makes it easy to read, thanks to the icons portraying the various sports and the green-background headlines. On the left side of the screen are the featured sports. The red caption, "live", shows when it is possible to place such a bet.

Actual promotions run in the center, at the top. One can access them with a simple click, while contacts, sponsorships, and payment method logos are at the bottom of the screen.

Everything is clear and simple: from the choice of colors to icons and headers. Therefore, our opinion on Betway Sport user experience cannot be more than positive.


Bets are a game, but as we all know, they involve real money. Hence, during online transactions, some aspects like data privacy, security, and betting legality become fundamental.

Betway manages its site very well in full compliance with the law and by taking advantage of excellent data encryption systems.

The portal protects minors from gambling and complies by responsibly informing its users against gambling-connected pathologies. It also uses tools such as weekly self-limitation and partial or final exclusion from the game.
