Betway has come out of nowhere to assume a place alongside Paddy Power and Betfred in the pantheon of leading UK bookies. With a massive television presence and several high-profile event sponsorships (including Carl Froch’s pummelling of George Groves in May 2014), Betway is well on its way to becoming a household name. But does it have the product to back up the hype?
As a Casinomeister-accredited and eCORGA-approved casino, Betway maintains high standards of player security and fair pay-outs. It is strict on perceived bonus abuse (there are some reports of blocked withdrawals), but in general Betway enjoys a great reputation with players, being very highly rated on AskGamblers.
Betway offers a formidable catalogue of products, with an extensive sports book, hundreds of casino games and a solid poker client. Combined with top-notch, modern web design and an excellent user experience, this is a very compelling option for gamblers of all tastes and persuasions.
There are three standard welcome bonuses available to all players: a 100% match up to £250 on your first deposit, 25% up to £250 on your second and 50% up to £500 on your third.
Unfortunately, a 50x roll-over with a seven day time-limit is pretty harsh by any standards. However, various weekly promotions are run throughout the year with a far more lenient 30x roll-over (deposit + bonus), so it’s worth sticking around for the cream of Betway’s promotional offers.
For high-rollers, Betway is an enticing prospect. There's a five-tier bonus scheme, and if you reach the highest echelons of the scheme, the benefits that await you are enormous.

This is where Betway really comes into its own. This website is practically bursting at the seams with product, meaning you’re sure to find something to tickle your fancy.
Obviously, the sportsbook is the flagship here, covering over 30,000 betting markets and providing the latest in-play and live action sport features. On the casino side of things, you have hundreds of live and virtual games from Microgaming, playable in-browser with Betway Casino and via downloaded software with Betway Vegas.
A competitive poker client is just the icing on the cake.
In short, if you want it, Betway’s got it.
There’s no two ways about it, Betway looks great. The website is clean, navigable and you never feel lost despite the heaps of content available. Top marks on the visual front. Our only quibble is that it's almost impossible for non-members to take a prospective peak around to see how things are hanging.
Microgaming is responsible for powering the games at Betway, and as always it does a bang-up job. It just goes to show the wealth of Micgrogaming’s back-catalogue that it can support this much content as Betway’s sole software provider.
Available Software: Microgaming.
While we have encountered no issues with Betway’s cashier or customer support, there are some complaints circulating on casino forums about denied cash-outs.
It has been reported by a minority of users that Betway denies winnings, citing incomplete wagering requirements, even when said requirements appeared to have been met. Some of these issues seem legitimate, but cannot be 100% verified or disproved.
Barring these issues, cash-outs take between 24 hours and seven days to complete. A full range of credit card and eWallet methods are available.
Note: the table below contains averages for the given payment services and does not factor in limits on the casino's side. Remember to check the casino's website for specific time/cash limits.

For the quality and variety of its services, Betway gets a big ‘thumbs up’ from us. It's overall payout percentage of 97% makes it one of the most generous in the industry. However, a few issues with transparency means we cannot offer this brand our absolute highest recommendation. That being said, you’re sure to get a kick out of this hugely popular casino website – just remember to get on live chat before depositing so you know exactly where you stand.Sounds good, sign me up!
