Review: The Betway Sports Betting App in Test

The bookmaker betway has already been on the market for some time and still it has not been able to achieve a high name recognition. Thereby betway has been active since 2006 and definitely has an interesting betting selection for lovers of groomed sports betting.  Whoever is looking for a provider with a good mobile variant will not be disappointed either. Although betway cannot really score with outstanding designs of the app, and there are also minus points concerning the payment options, the betting selection is fundamentally impressive.

The Betway App: Overview

Fundamentally the British bookmaker betway need not be ashamed of its betting selection. Actually it even has quite a good selection regarding sports betting. However, the bookmaker is known to focus on top leagues primarily. This means that if you are interested in football, you can only have access to the first three leagues. Even less leagues are available with regards to other sports.  This means that a user who is interested in a large selection of leagues will possibly be disappointed here.

The Betting Selection – The Sports Betting Selection of betway

In exchange, round 30,000 single bets can be chosen from per day though.  The selection is complemented by various special bets.  For this reason betway lies at a very good mid-range. The selection can also be accessed via the betway app.  There is a large selection of live bets available.  However, live-streams are quite scarce. Although these are also present, but there is only small number of them. This is a shame of course, because this area keeps on gaining interest – especially with experienced bettors.

Conclusion: The betting selection in the betway app is still impressive, even though it does not score much with its large bandwidth, since it simply cannot prevail against the competition.  Whoever is expecting something big will probably be disappointed by the conciseness. However, particularly for beginners in the area of sports betting, the mobile variant is definitely sufficient.

Registration at betway via the Sports Betting App

App Icon

In order to be able to place mobile bets at betway, the app must of course be installed on the end device. The bookmaker offers an app for iOS as well as for Android. By doing so, betway does not really prevail against the competition. Even if the operating systems, which are particularly often used, are provided in this way, there are also users of Blackberry and Windows Phones, who would enjoy being able to place mobile sports bets.

Betway App Download

Conversely, the installation of the app is quite simple and quickly completed. After the app has been found via the Store, the download only needs to be clicked on. Within a short time it is installed and can be used directly. An interesting fact is what one or more tests have shown: The app can also be used for Blackberry devices. Here there are always still a couple of wobbles and crashes, which can be very irritating in a sector like sports betting, where everything must go quickly sometimes. Experience shows though that the app works very well for the foreseen operating systems.

Conclusion: The download of the app is simple and carried out quickly via the Store. Within a few minutes the application can be installed on devices with iOS or Android.

Membership and Account Information

How does the registration via the app of the provider look like? Here you do not really need to worry too much actually, because it works well via the mobile application. To do so users simply go to the login button and receive directly a template which makes it possible to register. Whoever is already registered, simply needs to enter his user data. Whoever still wants to register, simply continues with “register” and then the process can begin.

The template itself has been kept very clear and simple. In reality just a form is available here, which must be filled out. Requested are the first and last name, the birthday and the e-mail as well as residential addresses. The telephone number must also be given. Then users can still select the language, determine a name and a password and end the registration.

Conclusion: The registration via the betway app is possible without any problems and can quickly be carried out. Whoever is already curious about how the app is structured and wishes to start right away does not need to wait much for the account to be created.

Structure and Clarity – How simple is the betway app?

In order for an app to present a good basis to be able to place sports bets, it should be structured as clearly as possible. In the test we examined how the betway structure looks like and to what extent the entire app is clearly designed. Experience showed that in this area there is little that can be criticised. When the app is opened, at first sight everything that you must know is shown. The upper menu bar is made up of four different tabs which can be selected from. The user decides whether he would like to go to the sports area, try his luck with the live bets or maybe make an excursion into the casino or the virtual Vegas. The login and logout section is to be found via these tabs. It is very simple if you choose to be remembered when logging in onto the mobile device, so that you do not need to enter everything again every time.

The menu is located on the left side of the app.  Via an additional window which opens, you can select the areas which should be used. Thus users can go to the live bets for instance or inform themselves about the current promotions. In addition, the cash-out is available here. Whoever wants to edit the account settings can do so as well. In case of questions or ambiguities and potential problems with the app or the account, it is possible to make use of the support via the app.

Regarding the colour design, the provider bets on quiet tones and uses more black, white and green. The fast search is very handy. With it, users can quickly search a particular sport and do not need to go through the menu for a long time. Especially in the mobile sector many want to save time and are not keen on searching a lot. With the fast search this problem resolves itself.

The betting slip was also able to pass the test. After the desired games are selected, the betting slip can be found in the lower section. This is then selected. With the betting slip you can decide whether it should be a combined or a single bet. Whoever wants to can also place side bets. Then the stakes are entered and already the bets can be placed.

Conclusion: The structure of the betway sports betting app is impressive. A very simple menu and a clear structure makes it easy to find one’s way at betway as a beginner, newbie or even as long-established bettor and to place bets. A lot of time is never lost to find the betting offers.

Deposit and Payout: What the betway sports betting app offers in this area

Depositing via the betway app is designed almost as simply as the registration. This is a good thing, since a lot of bookmakers do not even make it possible to make a deposit via the mobile variant. With them, it is necessary to login via the website and then to carry out a deposit so that the account can be used.  This is different with this provider. After you have logged in and found the menu, you can almost get started right away. You only have to press on the £ symbol at the bottom part of the page and already the template opens itself. Here you can chooses from different variants for depositing.

At betway the range of possibilities is definitely large. Of course there are credit cards as well as direct debit to transfer the money.  Then Instant Banking, Neteller and Skrill are available as well. Even PayPal is offered.

However, some difficulties can arise during payout if you are set on a particular payout method. Payouts are not possible with all methods. For this reason it is important to inform yourself beforehand whether the desired variant is offered.

Conclusion: The selection of deposit methods via the app is large. Here the bookmaker does not fall behind the competition, but rather scores due to variety. For payouts though the range is rather limited. Whoever prefers a particular payout method can reach his limits.

The Mobile Bonus – What does betway provide?

There is no mobile bonus exclusively for users who have opted for the app. However, betway is quite generous in general concerning this area. The bookmaker offers promotions time and again which can be selected. At the moment there is a 100% bonus amounting up to 50 GBP for new customers. The first deposit has to be made within seven days after registering. In order for the bonus to be paid out, you need to place bets in the amount of the deposit plus bonus. They must be bets with odds of at least 3/4 (1.75).

Conclusion: There are definitely promotional offers provided by the bookmaker. In the area regarding the offers, users can have a look at the current promotions and decide whether they wish to participate or not.

Customer Service – What does the support look like at betway?

It is possible to make use of the support via the app. Requests can be made directly by e-mail for instance. Sometimes though it must go fast. In this context, it makes sense to use the live-chat. The customer service reacts rapidly and can give competent answers. However, the live-chat and the e-mail communication are not the only areas covered.  There is also a hotline offered which can be called for free from landlines.  Whoever uses the mobile phone to call must bear the costs.

Conclusion: betway does not make any cutbacks regarding support and this speaks in favour of the bookmaker. Here there are the most diverse ways to reach the staff. In case of problems, you are quickly helped.

  • Regulated by the Gambling Commission of Malta
  • Solid loyalty programme
  • Diverse betting selection
  • Higher bonus
  • Support is simple
  • Payment methods for payouts are partly limited

Conclusion regarding the betway Sports Betting App

Up to now betway only offers a variant for iOS and Android, which also works partly for other mobile operating systems though.  Whoever can use the app will be satisfied. Even if the betting selection could definitely be broader, the odds are fair, the structure of the app is clear and the selection of deposit methods is large. The bookmaker itself is not inexperienced and as such it is a reliable partner concerning the placement of bets. Therefore the betway app should be interesting for beginners and also for advanced players.
