Betway started out as a site for sports betting only, but is today also offering casino, games and poker as well. It is also possible to bet on much more events than just sporting events here. Betway is owned and operated by Gibraltar based Carmen Media Group, the same group that runs the popular Riverbelle Casino. Betway's own headquarter is found in Malta and the company has a Maltese gambling license. Betway is a member of the European Sports Security Association.
Gambling and odds
Betway Sport runs on software from Orbis Software and has a very large selection of sports, from staples like association football and American football to more unusual things like pool, snooker, UFC/martial arts and the Louis Vuitton Cup for yachting. Everything from major international competitions to small local contests is available, at least for certain sports. In addition to end result and half time result, it is possible to place a wager on things such as first scorer, first foul, number of fouls, and goal times.
Those interested in betting outside the world of sport can for instance place their money on the next United States presidential election, the Academy Awards and Miss Universe pageants.
Live betting is available.
Betway has a mobile casino for Android phones (www.betway.com/casino/android), but no mobile client for sports betting.
Betway bet bonus and special offers
When you make your first wager at Betway Sport you will receive a free wager of the same amount, up to a maximum of €100. Your free wager will be available for use as soon as your first wager has been settled. For more information about the status of your free wager, go to “My Account” and click on “Bonuses: My bonuses”. The free wager can only be used for a wager where the total odds is at least 1.70. You need to spend the entire amount at the same time; you can not save a part of the money for later. If you win your free wager, only the winnings will be deposited into your account, not the wager amount.
As a registered member at Betway Sport, you will regularly receive offers about how to earn more bonuses. There are also time limited campaigns to take advantage of now and then, e.g. double your winnings, money back guarantee and free wagers. The newsletter from Betway is a good source of information.
Examples of accepted banking methods at Betway: VISA, MasterCard, Maestro, bank transfer, Moneybookers, Neteller WebMoney, Ukash, clickandbuy, click2pay, paysafecard, entropay.
Support is available around the clock, seven days a week. You can use e-mail and live chat, but you can not call the Betway support. This isn't a problem though, because if you send them an e-mail with your phone number asking them to call you, they will (and you don't have to worry about your phone bill). The e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
