The Betway experience
Signing up an account and getting started at Betway is pretty pain-free, please note you do need to FICA your account. This is a requirement for all betting companies who are licensed so you should expect this step at all online betting websites. We found the Betway website easy to navigate the different products are clearly labelled and colour coded (Sports Betting is green). As a new player to Betway, you will qualify for a new player bonus. The betting terms can be steep but the bonus is not compulsory. There is a wide variety of sports to bet on and we like the additional features like 4ToScore and Live Betting, this helps keep sports betting a bit more exciting. If you need a break from sports betting then they also offer BetGames which is a live lucky numbers type draw game and a Lucky numbers games. There are a few different options for funding your account and we found the withdrawal process quick and pain-free. Betway has an App for both Android and iOS which makes accessing your account even easier. Read on for a more in-depth breakdown of what to expect at Betway.
