Betway Casino Review

Betway has become a bit of an ‘it’ brand in the online casino industry. They seem to be the face of pretty much of everything at the minute, from sporting events to gala dinners. The company have seen a sharp rise in their success over the last couple of years, but you may be surprised to hear that they have actually been in the industry since 2007.

Whilst it’s fair to say that Betway have some time before the catch the likes of bet365 and 32Red, the company are moving forward at an alarming pace, mainly down to their ability to simply offer their users exactly what they want.

Betway Casino

Welcome Bonus: £1,000 in Bonuses

When you register a new account with Betway you are going to be able to claim up to £1,000 in bonus money. The process is split up into your first 3 deposits at the site, each with their own terms attached.

The first deposit that you make will be a 100% match worth up to £250. The second will be a 25% match up to £250 and the third is a 50% match up to £500. You will need to make sure that you opt-in for each bonus when you register your account and each bonus will be valid for 7 days from when you sign up. You will need to wager through each bonus 50 times before you’re able to withdraw.

Other Promotions

Like the majority of online casinos out there, once you are signed up to Betway you will be able to get your hands on a number of promotions that run throughout the year. Betway, probably more than most, offer a number of weekly and even daily offers that you can keep up to date with via their website. The offers below are longer term and should still be relevant when you register your account with them today.

£10 No Deposit Bonus

You will be able to grab yourself a £10 no deposit bonus when you sign up to Betway. The bonus should hit your account within 5 minutes and from there you will be able to use at any real money game on the site. Any winnings that you earn from the bonus will need to be wagered through 100 times before being able to withdraw.

Plus Points

Throughout the week you are going to be able to earn points when you play at Betway. For one day Betway are going to offer you the chance to get triple points on all points that you earn. The dates for each week will vary from account to account, so make sure that you check to see when they are available to you.

Software and Platform

Betway is fairly unique in that they only use one software provider in Microgaming. For a long while they did actually use more than just one, but in more recent years they have teamed up with Microgaming to provide exclusive player experience. The partnership also means that they get first pick of the games that the software provider offers them, making sure they keep their catalogue of games bang up to date.

The software is available via instant play on your desktop browser. It can also be accessed via the mobile app that is downloadable from the App Store and accessible via your smartphones browser for all other use. The software will also allow you select your favourite games and keep them in a dedicated tab, along with a search function which saves a lot of time trawling through the seemingly endless list of games. The site also allows you to access demo play for all games on offer, meaning you play without investing real money to get a feel for how each game works.

Casino Games

The casino includes over 400 games in total, which is a really solid amount. The ability to tap into Microgamings vast catalogue of games has allowed Betway to pretty much hand pick which games they choose. What you will find is that games come and go quite regularly, but you can keep up to date with any new games on site simply by selecting the ‘New’ tab.

Betway Casino Games

Slots

It will probably come as very little surprise to hear that slots is the biggest distributor of games at Betway and with that you get around 300 titles to choose from. The games on the whole are excellent and for those of you who are familiar with Microgaming, then you will see some familiar faces such as Gold Factory, Jurassic Park, Avalon II and Immortal Romance. What’s been impressive to see though is that Betway offer up a fair few slots that other casinos that solely use Microgaming don’t. The reasoning behind this we aren’t sure, but we know that variety in what’s an increasing competitive environment is always a positive for us.

Blackjack

You’re going to be able to choose from 28 blackjack games in total, which is a ridiculously high number compared to most. The games are all really cool as well, with some that we were testing for just the first time. The Vegas Downtown and the Super Fun 21 game are two of our particular highlights, but it also includes favourites such as European, French, American and even Spanish variations.

Roulette

The number of roulette games don’t quite compare to blackjack, with just 10 variations on offer. There are other casinos that do offer more than this, but to be honest, 10 is about right for a really nice mix. Games such as Premier, European, American, and Diamond Edition titles were all well thought through and brilliantly designed. You’re also going to be able to access the Live Immersive Roulette games, which are great fun.

Video Poker

There are 23 variations of video poker on site, which is again one of the largest selections that we have come across. The quality of games do tend to vary here however, but then you do kind of expect that with the simplicity of video poker.

Jackpots

Microgaming focussed online casinos always seem to have a really good range of jackpot games, and Betway is no different. There are 14 titles to choose from in total but the big hitters are all there, such as Mega Moolah, Major Millions and Treasure Nile.

In fact, Betway hold the record for the largest payout form any online casino when a British Solider managed to take down the jackpot on the Mega Moolah slot, bagging himself a cool £13.2million!

About Betway

The Betway group have been about since 2006 and it only took them a year to tap into that of online casino. The company are probably better known for their work in the sports betting industry, especially with sponsorship deals in place with the likes of West Ham United and Premier League Darts.

The company are a truly global affair and whilst based out of Malta and Germany, thy actually hold licenses in the UK, Malta, Italy, Denmark, Spain, Belgium, Germany and Ireland. What’s been impressive to see from Betway over the last decade or so is their willingness to improve, with both casino and sports having several major re-designs and re-brands in that timeframe.
