Live and mobile betting?

Yes and yes for both questions. Betway supports live betting meaning that any punter can still bet on the favourite games that he/she likes even after the game has kicked off. This feature contributed heavily towards increasing the number of registered betway customers in the sportsbook’s large database. The live events that the punter can bet on could be football, rugby, motorsports, cycling, boxing, or even golf. While that is possible, the bettors can also use any of the mobile devices that they have to still bet on their favourite games or events – mostly sports events.

Security and Supported Payment methods

It is very unlikely to find bettors nowadays registering their selves with bookmakers that do not assure them of the safety of their data while they are placing their bets on those bookmakers’ websites. Fortunately, this bookmaker is a step ahead of those bookmakers since this one safely secures and protects bettors from online attacks thanks to an SSL encryption that the bookmaker incorporated into its website. Any betway customer can surf safely because the SSL technology which encrypts their data to a point whereby it is really very hard to decrypt, is up and running.

Well, the other feature that has placed this bookmaker in the limelight is that of its wide range of banking options to choose from. The methods are MPESA, PayPal, Neteller, Skrill, MasterCard, Visa Card, Click2Pay, InstaDebit, ClickandBuy, Bank Transfer, and EcoCard. Of course, some of the payment options mentioned here are only accepted in some countries. For instance, MPESA works best for those gamblers who are currently residing in Kenya.

Then there is the issue of the minimum and maximum deposit or withdrawals to be made to or from the bettors’ betway accounts. The limits vary depending on the methods that are used. E.g. MPESA users will not deposit or withdraw funds that are less than €0.1 and won’t deposit or withdraw a huge amount that exceeds €1000. The other methods have their ranges of the two limits being almost the same starting from €5 and ending at €50,000 for the deposits. While the withdrawal ranges start at €5 and go all the way up to €100,000. Lastly, there are some few currencies that are accepted at this bookmaker. They are Kenyan shillings, US Dollars, Euros, British Pounds, Australian Dollars, Canadian Dollars, New Zealand Dollars, and Danish Krona.

Betway In a nutshell

This bookmaker has been operational since 2006 and now has over 10+ years in the gambling field. Initially, so many punters were not satisfied with its services. This was probably due to poor management that scared away as many customers as they had not thought off. However, after a while, it got off that rocky start when the good management was finally restored. Though that took a while, it finally brought confidence in the bettor’s faces which could be noticed through a large number of newly registered betway customers within a very short while after that mess had been resolved. This bookmaker is owned by the Betway group but is operated by Bluejay Limited, a UK-based firm that does management consultancies apart from the financial management. This is why the bookmaker has a license from the Great Britain Gambling Commission (GBGC). It also has other licenses from Malta Gaming Authority (MGA), Betting Control and Licensing Board of Kenya (BCLBK), and other regulatory bodies from Denmark, Germany, Spain, Belgium, and Ireland.

One of the few things that made Betway very famous in the world is the mere fact that it is currently sponsoring one of the English Premier League football club, West Ham United FC.

Despite its familiarity, there are some gamblers who do not get to access any of the betway services because of the rules and regulations that their countries had/have set in place that restricts gambling. The unlucky gamblers are those who reside in Germany, Australia, the United States, France, Singapore, South Africa, Denmark, Greece, Russia to name but a few.

Customer support services

The bookmaker also has exemplary customer support. This is because of the fact that the bettors can air their grievances via live chats, phone calls or even via the email using the email address that is there on the website of this bookmaker. On top of that, the bookmaker supports more than just one language.
