Who is Betway?

Betway Limited, a company registered in Malta, owns the Betway brand and operates the betting site with a license from the Malta Gaming Authority outside of Great Britain. Established in 2006, Betway holds licenses in multiple jurisdictions including the UK, Italy, Spain, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, South Africa, and other countries.

The betting site offers a sportsbook and an online casino. The sports betting section of the site has one of the best sports coverage, betting features, and a great variety of markets. Find all about this and more in our in-depth Betway review.

Betway Review

Betway Welcome Bonus in INR

Betway offers a 100% matched deposit bonus of up to ₹2500

How to claim the 100% bonus from Betway?

  • Open an account with Betway
  • Make a deposit of at least ₹200
  • A 100% matched bonus of up to ₹2500 will be credited to your account

What are the wagering requirements?

The playthrough or wagering requirements for the welcome bonus are 6 times the bonus amount on sports bets with odds of 1.75 or higher.

The welcome bonus from Betway is unique and different from the bonuses offered on most other betting sites. The bonus from Betway is also called Flexi Bonus. A striking feature of this bonus is that it allows the players to withdraw their current cash amount. Only the bonus amount is subject to the aforementioned wagering requirements and not the current cash amount.

Another noteworthy aspect of the 100% matched deposit bonus from Betway is the percentage contribution of bets towards the playthrough requirements.

All single-line sports bets with odds of 1.75 or higher contribute 100% towards the playthrough requirements. Whereas, single bets placed on odds of 1.30 to 1.74 will contribute 12.5%.

Not just sports bets, but bets placed on casino games also contribute toward the wagering requirement. However, the percentage contribution of casino games is even less at 1.56%. That means if you wager ₹2500 on casino games, it would contribute ₹200 toward the playthrough requirements.

One of the best online betting sites, Betway has been around for more than a decade and accepts players from India. The bookmaker has a license from Malta Gaming Authority and employs a proper KYC verification process as well. The site also offers bank transfer and UPI payment methods for Indian players.

Punters in India can enjoy all the top betting features on Betway such as cashout, horse racing, bet builder, in-play betting right from their mobile using the Betway app. A simple UI, secure gameplay, and a variety of betting markets on offer at Betway.

You can expect the amount to reflect in your account within 45 minutes but in case it doesn’t, the betting site recommends you wait for at least 2 hours before contacting them.

Sports Betting on Betway

Betway is one of the leading sites when it comes to sports betting. Whether you’re looking for a greater variety of markets, a broad sports coverage, or top betting features, you will find it all on Betway.

Moreover, the bookmaker also offers regular promotions for sports betting including free bets and money-back offers for betting on cricket.

Some of the top categories of sports betting on Betway are –

  • Cricket
  • Football
  • Tennis
  • Horse Racing
  • Greyhounds Racing
  • Basketball
  • Table Tennis
  • Baseball
  • Rugby League
  • Rugby Union
  • Esports

One of the highlight features of the Betway sportsbook is the variety found in Outright markets. In addition to predicting the outright winner of a particular tournament or a league, players can also bet on other aspects such as the team to reach semi-finals, to reach the final, top goalscorer, total goals in the tournament, etc.

Here is a screenshot of the outright markets offered for betting on the Euro 2020

Betway Euro Outright Betting

 

As you can see, there is a cashout and each-way betting feature available for betting on the Euro 2020 outright winner.

Another outright winner market for which Betway offers each-way betting is the T20 World Cup –

Betway T20 World Cup Betting

 

The cashout feature is also quite common on Betway. In addition to the match winner market, there are quite a few other betting markets where punters can cash out their stake. For example, let’s consider Denmark vs Belgium Euro 2020 fixture. In addition to the main market of win/draw/win, the other betting markets that offer the cash-out option include –

  • 1st Goal
  • Both Teams to Score
  • Double Chance
  • Correct Score

Betway Cashout Feature

 

While the correct score market is widely available across all major betting sites, the cash out options for this market is quite rare.

The ‘goals’ category of the betting markets offers Over and Under betting options for predicting the Total Goals in the match and you can cash out your stake on all of these Total Goals betting markets.

Betway Goals Betting

 

Cashout and Each-Way betting are just a few of the betting features available on Betway Sports. As we cover more aspects of sports betting in our Betway review, you will find a host of other features that promise an enjoyable online betting experience.

Cricket Betting at Betway

Cricket is not only the most-watched and followed sport in India but is also popular among sports bettors. The Men in Blue are the top favourites whether they are playing a Test series in Australia, England, or a 5-match T20I in New Zealand. At Betway Sports, there is an extensive range of markets available for betting on India’s international fixtures along with the exclusive Betway Boosts feature that offers enhanced odds for select betting options.

As cricket betting grows in popularity, the scope of betting has also grown wider. For the last few years, Indian bettors have been on the hunt for odds and markets for T20 leagues from all over the world. This includes Global T20 Canada, Vincy T10 League, St Lucia T10 Blast, BBL, Super Smash, Vitality Blast, and CPL.

In addition to covering all these T20 and T10 leagues, Betway also offers some of the best variety of betting markets for IPL. The sportsbook is one of the very few to offer betting markets for almost every award presented in the post-match ceremony of an IPL game. At Betway, in addition to predicting who will win the match, you can also bet on who will be Player of the Match, Super Striker of the Match, Game-Changer, Perfect Catch, etc.

Here are some of the pre-match betting markets for a PSL match offered on Betway –

Betway Cricket Betting

 

The first ball dot or not and the first ball of the match markets are unique to Betway. In the first ball of the match market, you can choose from a total of 11 selections to bet on. The odds for 4 runs off the bat on the 1st ball of the match were 8.50 (a ₹100 bet returns ₹850 in winnings) in the above-shown match.

Other pre-match markets in addition to the more popular ones such as team top batsman and team top bowler include –

  • Team with top batsman
  • Team with top bowler
  • Top batsman – runs in the match
  • Most sixes in the match
  • Most fours in the match

Betway cricket prematch markets

 

However, the most exciting aspect of cricket betting on Betway is the #betyourway market. It consists of some unique combinations of match outcomes that offer very high odds.

For example, in the above match, i.e. Karachi Kings vs Lahore Qalandars, the #betyourway market offers odds of 2.65 (₹265 winnings on a ₹100 bet) for the outcome, Babar Azam and Sharjeel Khan Both To Hit A Six.

Betway Cricket Betyourway

 

If you wager ₹100 on this selection then both of these batsmen need to hit at least 1 six each for you to win the bet.

If you fancy this market and would be interested in placing such bets during the live match, Betway has you covered. The in-play cricket betting section of Betway offers the #betyourway market under the pre-built bet category.

While most betting sites offer ball-by-ball and over-by-over betting markets for live cricket betting where punters can predict the number of runs scored on the next delivery or in the next over, Betway goes a step ahead. On Betway, players can also bet on whether a wicket will fall in the next over.

Football betting

Betway has a host of features such as bet builder, betway boosts, cashout, and #betyourway markets for football betting. As we showcased earlier in our Betway review, the sportsbook has an impressive range of outright betting markets for football, Euro 2020 being the case in point.

Other major football leagues and tournaments covered on Betway include Premier League, Copa America, UEFA Nations League, Champions League, World Cup, La Liga, Bundesliga, Serie A and many other local leagues from around the world.

Betway Football Betting

 

The pre-match betting markets for football are classified into these categories –

  • Main markets
  • Goals
  • Goalscorers
  • Half
  • Corners
  • Cards
  • Pre Built Bets / #betyourway
  • Other

The highlight aspect of football betting on Betway is the bet builder feature that allows punters to add multiple selections to their bet from the same match.

Betway Bet Builder

 

As you can see in the above screenshot, we have added 4 selections to the Bet Builder bet slip.

A ₹100 stake will return ₹1000 if all these predictions for the match turn out to be correct.

Another attraction for football punters on Betway is the Betway Boosts. These are enhanced odds for a variety of different match outcomes. Football matches tend to have more of these boosts than cricket. Here are some of the betway boosts for the Euro 2020 matches at the time of writing this review –

Betway Football Boosts

 

Given that the number of football playing nations is much higher than that of cricket, you are bound to find many football markets and odds to bet on almost every day. Betway’s variety of markets and features make a strong case for an enhanced online betting experience whether pre-match or in-play.

Horse Racing

Betway is a leader when it comes to horse race betting in India. We found top races from the UK & Ireland, USA, Australia, South Africa, and even South Korea with live streaming on Betway.

The interface for betting on horse racing is quite simple with an efficient design that allows for easy navigation between different races. The betway boost feature is available for horse racing as well including live horse races.

You can bet on the race winner, top 2 finish, top 3 finish, and the sportsbook also offers Each Way betting.

Betway Horse Racing

 

To navigate between the live and upcoming races, the categories available are Next Off, Today, Tomorrow, and Antepost. The each-way betting terms vary depending on the race. For some the Each Way bet pays up to 2 places while for others up to 3 places. A form guide is also available to help bettors learn more information about the race and the participating horses before placing a bet.

Tennis Betting

There have been some world-class finals at the Grand Slams lately. The rising talent in the Tennis world is knocking on the doors challenging the established ones such as Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal. While Djokovic continues to be the world number 1 tennis player, the 22-year old Stefanos Tsitsipas from Greece made him sweat for the French Open title in 2021. Tsitsipas will once again be the challenger at the 2021 Wimbledon with Novak Djokovic being the favourite on betting sites. Here is a look at the outright winner market for the 2021 Wimbledon –

Betway Tennis Betting

 

As you can see in the above screenshot, even Roger Federer, who’s won 8 Wimbledon titles, is priced at higher odds than Tsitsipas indicating growing confidence among betting sites for the Greek tennis player.

While Djokovic is way ahead in the race at 1.90 odds to win the Wimbledon title, the cashout and each-way betting option in this market will allow a bettor to consider betting on Medvedev or Tsitsipas.

When betting on the pre-match markets for a Tennis match, the sportsbook offers the cashout option for Match Winner, 1st Set – Winner, and 2nd Set – Winner markets. In addition to the Grand Slams, there are many Tennis events played around the world all year round.

At Betway, you can find top odds and popular betting markets for all such Tennis events to bet on. Some of the many Tennis events covered at Betway Sports include London ATP, Berlin WTA, London – Doubles ATP, Madrid ITF, Antalya ITF, and many other challenger matches.

How to Withdraw Funds from Betway?

Unlike other betting sites that lock in both the original deposit and the bonus amount until the wagering requirements are met, Betway allows its users to withdraw their current cash amount. Only the bonus amount is subject to playthrough requirements before it can be withdrawn.
The following payment methods are available for withdrawing money from Betway –

  • Neteller
  • ecoPayz
  • Skrill
  • Bank Transfer
  • AstroPay Card
  • MuchBetter

To make a withdrawal using Bank Transfer, log in to your Betway account, click the INR button and click Withdraw.

Betway Withdrawing Money

 

Scroll below to find and choose the Bank Transfer method, enter the amount you wish to withdraw and click Next.

Betway Withdraw Bank Transfer

 

  • Fill in your bank details such as bank name, your name, IFSC code, etc. and click Withdraw.
  • You will soon receive a confirmation about the processing status of your withdrawal request. It can take up to 7 days for the amount to reflect in your bank account depending on the bank’s processing times.
  • The minimum amount that can be withdrawn from your Betway account is ₹1000.

Another payment option that offers quicker transactions is Neteller. Once you withdraw funds from your Betway using Neteller, you can find the funds in your Neteller account in 2 – 24 hours.

The different statuses of withdrawals are –

  • Pending
  • Processing commenced
  • Processing completed
  • Paid

The withdrawals made to web wallets take less time than those made to a bank account. However, these wallets may charge a small fee for making transactions to and from your bank account. Web wallets are ideal for players who have accounts on multiple betting sites and need to move money quickly between them.

Mobile App

Betway offers mobile app support for both Android and iOS platforms. The betting site has a separate app for each of its sports and casino products. There is an easy to follow guide on how to download and install the mobile app on the download page of the site.

All you need to do is first choose your platform (Android or iOS), and then on the download page, you will find links to the Sports and Live Casino App.

To download the sports betting app from Betway, click the Betway Sports App button, accept the popup on your screen, and confirm the installation of the app on your device.

During our review of the Betway mobile app, we found all the essential features such as deposit & withdrawal, live betting, and all the sports betting options covered on the desktop site. The mobile app for Betway Sports offers an easy way to place bets on the go. Due to the unique user interface and design of Betway Sports, it is quite simple to navigate to the sport of your choice and filter through different events. Moreover, the highlight sports betting features on the betting site such as Bet Builder, Betway Boosts, and Each Way betting are also available on the Betway mobile app.

Customer Service

This is one area where Betway needs to improve. While there is an extensive FAQ section that covers a range of different topics, the way to connect with customer support via live chat is not straightforward.

  • To contact the customer service agent at Betway, you need to navigate to the help section of the site and choose a category. And then from the available questions listed under that category, select one.
  • Scroll to the bottom of that page to reach the end of the answer to the query to find the “was this article helpful?” question. Click the “No” button next to the question.
  • A link with the text “click here to contact us” will appear and on clicking that you’ll see another link saying “click here to launch live chat”.
  • Finally, when you click this link, you will be connected to a member of the customer service team at Betway.

If you were to navigate to the Contact Us page of Betway, all you will find are instructions on how to launch live chat. For a betting site that has been around for so long, quality customer support should be available via multiple channels such as Email and Telephone which unfortunately wasn’t available on Betway.
