Betway Safety & Licensing – 10/10 Score

Betway invests huge sums of money in marketing and sponsorship with global names including Conor McGregor and West Ham United among their list of sponsored brands.

Their commitment to making their online services safe for punters at all times is second to none, and those major brands certainly wouldn’t associate themselves with a bookmaker that wasn’t heavily licensed!

The Betway brand is registered in Malta and is therefore licensed and regulated by the Malta Gambling Authority. In Britain, they’re fully licensed by the Gambling Commission which oversees that all gaming activity is carried out fairly and transparently.

As one of the world’s most trustworthy betting sites, Betway are also members of eCOGRA which provides independent regulation for casinos and gaming sites. This isn’t a legal requirement but one which they adopt to keep betting safe for punters.

Their sports betting wing is overseen by ESSA, another independent body which validates sports betting integrity.

Their commitment to licensed, safe and legal betting practices is top of the tree and they score a magnificent 10/10.

Website, Design & Navigation

Betway’s simplistic three-tone site design is certainly a very user friendly online sportsbook.  Software performance is excellent as is the navigation and menu options.

That’s not to say there’s loads of additional extras.  Explore the Betway online betting site and you will find a fantastic blog section of Betway covered sports, it is one of the best in the business with forthright editorials and podcasts. Regularly updated delivering analysis, news, opinions and betting strategy, even those that don’t place bets are regular visitors. Betway are particularly proud of their bespoke eSports news site, a field in which they major.

Another unique feature of Betway is their excellent form and statistics area which is comprehensive and well designed.  Using bar charts, pie charts and conventional percentages to give form some real meaning, it’s a great tool for serious punters.

Betway’s sportsbook has a separate section for its In-Play betting markets where upcoming in-play events are shown clearly, as well as fixtures that are currently in-play and their available betting markets.

While some sports do not have a particularly varied selection of bettings odds, and there is no Horse Racing or Greyhound markets, you will find some of the rarest Football markets at Betway. In addition to the Premier League and other top European competitions you can bet on the Latvian Virsliga and a number of South American leagues, such as the Paraguay and Uruguay Premiera Divisions. Also, in general there is usually a large range of sports to choose from.


What We Are Missing at Betway

The primary shortcoming with Betway is their limited number of deposit and withdrawal methods. They feature just Visa, Mastercard and PayPal so ‘banking’ really is their Achilles heel and it is this site’s biggest downfall. Being pedantic we could also point out low key football matches are subject to very few betting markets – win only in some situations – and amongst these in-running ‘cash-out’ options are non-existent. Of course Betway do offer in-play betting and they do it well (particularly Esports) but the experience can be spoiled by the lack of live pictures, for the most part these seem limited to football, tennis and horse racing. Serious greyhound punters will also tell you Betway does not offer early prices on dog racing and often only give customers backing their fancies SP unless they place their bets just prior to the scheduled ‘off time’.


Betway Live Streaming Sport

Residents of the UK, Ireland and Sweden can tune in to a host of sporting events via live streams from Betway. Football fans can catch games from some of the top European leagues, with tennis, basketball and more also available to view for free as long as your Betway account is in credit.

Click on the Live Streaming tab at Betway.com to look at which events are live now or look out for the Live Streaming icon when you are browsing the markets to place a bet. You can get right to the heart of the action at Betway by clicking on the ‘watch and bet’ icon which will take you to a screen displaying the latest In-Play odds alongside a live stream of the event.

Betway Customer Service

Customer service agents can only be contacted between 8am and 1am via email but generally the response times are good and their policy is to respond within 20 minutes. So far they have managed to build up quite a good reputation.

The customer service team is available via the Live Chat function and e-mail, with each language having a separate e-mail they can use for customer support that completely removes language barriers.

The general, english speaking, e-mail to contact is support@betway.com

In addition to the live chat, which is available 24/7, you can also make use of their extensive FAQ, which can be used to solve many standard issues.

A slight concern is the lack of a telephone service, but the extensive FAQ and other services more than make up for this.

Two million people, the number of customers Betway lay claim to, agree this is a top notch site with few if any bad points.  Possibly the need to validate your account prior to making a withdrawal can be conceived as irksome but that is purely for player protection.

But that ‘con’ is sunk by countless ‘pros’.  A vast array of betting markets and bet options, excellent customer support, smooth banking, acca-insurance, best odds guaranteed and other concessions are some of the ingredients which make Betway the standing dish for so many punters.

Betway are based on the island of Malta but have the UK Gambling Commission’s seal of approval and are members of I.B.A.S. (the Independent Betting Adjudication Service) the impartial adjudicator on disputes that arise between gambling operators and their customers.  It gives Betway customers some real peace of mind.
