Betway, a betting site founded already in 2006, has already established a solid position in the UK betting markets. Betway is a part of the New York Stock Exchange listed Super Group Ltd., so there are some big shoulders behind the site. The brand has also become known as a sponsor of many sports clubs such as West Ham, PSG, Brighton & Hove Albion and eSports team Ninjas in Pyjamas.

Betway provides competitive odds on many sports, but the biggest treat is for fans of British football and football in general. Betway's payout percentage for bettors in top football leagues is up to 95% at its best. This is a very good level of odds and means Betway themselves are taking less margin for themselves and offering better odds for customers.

Betway's branded "Betway boosts" add a nice spice to bookie's odds. These increased odds are available for many different sports every day, and the odds on these bets are among the best on the market.

Betway has invested in the number of games on offer, with a vast and varied selection of markets from every possible sport and event you could imagine betting. From the sidebar quick links, you'll find all the most well-known and popular sports and leagues like the Premier League, NBA and Tennis.

However, the "all sports" list includes an exceptional amount of lesser-known sports to bet on, such as badminton, water polo, and lacrosse. Also the ever-growing Esports has been well covered at Betway.

With cashout, bettors can choose to accept their wins at that very moment or cut their losses before the event ends. At Betway cashout is available on pre-match, in-play, single, multiple and system bets.

Additionally, Betway offers partial cashouts, which give you the chance to cashout winnings while leaving the original stake to be paid out based on the outcome.

In live betting, you bet on different matches and events while they are already in progress. Live betting adds a nice extra flavour to watching a football match on TV, for example, as you can react instantly to what's happening on the field with your bets.

Betway in-play betting includes almost all the same markets as pre-match betting. Punters can bet, for instance, on goal scorers, corners and over/under lines.

In-play betting is extremely popular and Betway offers a greast interface for it with some live stats and a game center where you can follow the event.

Betway Live stream

Betway offers live stream broadcasts on its betting site. The brand has invested most in horse racing and esports broadcasts. Horse races are streamed race by race, and bettors only see the races they have placed a wager. Esports streams, on the contrary, are free for all Betway account holders.

Betway is not a rookie in this industry, which is why they understand that most betting and gaming happen at the moment on mobile devices. The site's mobile version is responsive, and the site adapts to all screen sizes and shapes. When playing on smartphones or tablets at Betway, there is no need to download an app because everything will operate perfectly through the browser on your device.

However, if you want to download the Betway app, you can do it in a Google Play Store or Apple App Store. Betway sports betting app has accumulated almost one million downloads in the app stores (Google & Apple). The download rates are a good indicator of confidence in the application's performance.

Safe & responsible gambling

A big brand like Betway takes care of all the security and responsible gambling issues down to the last detail. All data collected from players are strongly encrypted, and users have the right to know where the data goes and for which purpose.

Regarding responsible gaming, Betway provides its users convenient links to the websites of aid organisations. The brand is also assisting punters in maintaining control over their gambling with different self-limit tools.

Betway takes responsible gaming seriously

Betway offers its customers one of the most extensive help pages on the betting markets. The site has thought through almost every possible problem and answers them. In addition to text-based help, you can watch "how to" videos to get help. If you feel that your problem cannot be solved by following the instructions, you have the option to contact support via live chat. Live chat is open 24/7.

KYC & Documents

UK's gambling act requires Betway to thoroughly check your details and confirm that you are at least 18 years old.
