Betway Review & Free Bet

There are plenty of reasons to consider Betway as your go-to online sports betting site, whether it is their huge range of sporting markets or their extensive variety of different products, such as a casino, vegas, live casino, poker and bingo rooms which can all be accessed and used from just the one account.

Usually with sportsbooks, their age is a good variable to consider and when you realise that Betway has been smashing it in the industry since 2006, it’s reasons like that makes them a household favourite. Betway have sponsored some of the biggest names teams on the planet and have won countless awards in the process.

Website – Layout & Interface:

The driving creative force at Betway has managed to sculpt a relatively good homepage that gives off the kind of premium vibes that you would expect from a prolific sports betting site. The colour scheme is made up of green headers that have been sat on a dark grey/black backgrounds, so navigating around different sections is clear cut and made simple.

You will find the Betway sports logo in the top left hand corner of the page and directly across from this, on the right, is a small menu which lists all of the different areas of Betway, such as their sportsbook, live casino, bingo, poker, vegas and online casino sections. On the right of this is where you can change some of the more important details of the site, such as the language in which Betway is presented in as well as how the odds are displayed and this can be switched between fractions, decimal and American.

On the left hand side of the page is a quick links section; this has been created by compiling some of the most popular areas of Betway into a handy list that is guaranteed to help players save time in one way or another. Below the quick links is a comprehensive list of sports that players will find here at Betway and there are definitely enough for their customers to be getting on with.

Travelling horizontally across the sports homepage is a brief menu which features links to the in-play, promotions and some sport sections. It is also worth noting that your individual bet slip can be located here.


As previously touched upon, players will have a wealth of different sporting markets at their disposal when using Betway, these range from Tennis, Football, Horse Racing, Winter Sports, Specials, Water Polo, Snooker, Pool, Pesapallo, Politics, Beach Volleyball, Fishing, Beach Soccer, Ice Hockey, Aussie Rules, Handball, American Football, Cycling, Motor Sport, Gaelic Sports, MMA/UFC, Rugby Union, Darts, Boxing, Rugby League, Volleyball, eSports, Betway Boosts, Baseball, Golf, Basketball and Cricket.

We took a close look at some of the betting markets that Betway were providing to their customers and after a close inspection, the conclusion is that they are definitely ahead of the curve in this respect. Players who enjoy betting on football will find their favourite markets like Win/Draw/Win, Double Chance, 1st Goal, Handicap, Draw No Bet, Both Teams to Score, Correct Score, Half-Time/Full-Time and many others.

Welcome Bonus & Promotions:

Betway’s welcome bonus is a £30 matched bet. They do have a pretty cool free bet club as well, what it is exactly, is a recurring free bet for all customers who stake a minimum of £25 a week on trebles or higher and Betway will credit your account with a free bet worth £10. As a standalone offer, this isn’t the greatest but considering the fact it resets each and every week, this is something that is definitely going to appeal to some players.

Once you have got yourself signed up for the welcome bonus, there are still other promotions and betting offers ongoing that are worth checking out, at Betway. Some of these include best odds guaranteed for all UK and Irish horse racing, double winnings on specific rugby league matches and Betway also like to sneak some promotions in for the big competitions, so it’s always worth checking regularly to see if they have added anything new.

In-Play Betting:

Betway offer live betting options for many of their sports, so if betting at peak, pivotal sporting moments is your kind of thing, look no further. The sports that Betway cover with their in-play console are as follows: Tennis, Football, Golf, Cricket, Basketball, Volleyball, Baseball, eSports, Rugby Union, Darts, Beach Volleyball, Snooker and more.

You can find all of the most highly sought after live markets for all of these sports, but with English roots you can be certain that their football markets are on point. Players will find the likes of First Goal, Correct Score, Win/Draw/Win, Double Chance, Both Teams to Score and minute by minute action bets.

Mobile & Tablet:

Betway have put a mobile betting application out there for all of the players who like to enjoy the very best of online sports betting but from anywhere in the world. The application is a fantastic  replication of the desktop version of the site and you can find all of your favourite features there. To download the dedicated mobile app, you will need to head over to the Betway website and download it from there or if you are using iOS, by heading over to the Apple app store.

Payment Methods:

Players at Betway will have access to a wide array of different payment methods ranging from traditional banking methods like transfers and cards like Visa, MasterCard, Maestro, Visa Electron, as well as e-wallets such as Skrill, EntroPay, PayPal, Neteller and ecoPayz. You can find the full list on the Betway website along with withdrawal options.

Customer Support:

If you need to speak to a member of Betway, there are few different ways in which you can do this; we firstly would recommend that you refer to their FAQ section and if the answer you are looking for is not there, you can then contact a member of staff via live chat, email and telephone. We definitely recommend you using the live chat as it is incredibly efficient and you can reach someone from the team almost immediately, at any time.


Betway has created an extremely accomplished sportsbook that is teeming with potential reasons as to why you should try out or even switch to them. Their in-play console is superb and they provide a monumental amount of different sports that really pushes the boat out. Their welcome bonus could be better but once you realise how proactive they are towards their other promotions, it becomes marginal in comparison. Betway covers as many different payment methods in an attempt to leave no customers out of the equation and when you combine this with their highly professional customer support, is why we recommend that you join in on the fun and see where a Betway account could take you.
