Betting options — normal

Betway soccer's pre-match betting market is somewhere between average. For example, we find some minor league matches offered from around the world. The markets offered are acceptable, with the main drawback being the absence of Asian handicaps, offset by the offer of special markets on cards or corner kicks in the big leagues, which is always welcome.

If your interest is in the First Divisions, whatever the country, you'll find it at Betway. If, on the contrary, you’re looking for exotic leagues or lower categories, you might be left disappointed, although you will find a large part of those being amongst the sportsbook’s menus.

Football is naturally among the most popular sports to bet on. Betway is aware of that and offers bets on the NFL and NCAA mostly with a big coverage that will satisfy almost everyone interested in betting on them.

Apart from ML, handicaps and totals on each game, you can also find bets for the long term that includes awards, divisions, total wins of a team and of course the Super Bowl.

Moving to Basketball, the betting options are similar to soccer - just enough. Friendlies, major leagues and some secondaries like the U23 in Thailand are there, but we miss some more leagues and competitions, especially minor ones.

However, the number of markets offered in the major leagues is very comprehensive. The NBA, apart from all the basic lines, is also covered with markets for players performances in a game (total points, rebounds or assists).

In the lower leagues the markets are limited to the basic ones: money line, handicaps and totals. They do have outright bets available on the major leagues, and a bigger variety of markets that make Betway interesting for betting in such competitions, like in soccer.

In Tennis,  however, we have had a small pleasant surprise to see a wide variety of markets in large tournaments such as the ATP or the WTA, as well as a lot of ITF tournaments being offered, although with hardly any markets.

There’s also a wide offer of other sports within Betway’s menus. It is worth mentioning its own e-Sports section with a wide range of events, leagues and markets, surpassing other sports such as Basketball. Undoubtedly this bookie has bet heavily on these ones and has become a fantastic choice for LoL or CS: GO betting fans among others.

In addition, they offer more sports like Horse Racing, Water polo, Boxing, Cycling, Cricket to name a few, that are not found often in most sportsbooks.

Betway is above average in terms of sports offering compared to the competition, and its own eSports section is a major plus for many people. However, we must put this sportsbook in the normal category for betting options, due to the absence of markets such as the asian handicaps as well as some minor leagues and competitions.

Live — normal

There’s room for improvement in it’s live section. The match finder is not able to quickly reach the desired event, since the menu feels a bit slow in searching between the sports offered.

The supply of matches is acceptable, although more markets on them would be more than welcome. In soccer we can find practically all the events offered in pre-match, and the same happens in all other main sports but also in other sports like tennis, where almost all ITF tournaments are live.

Although everything necessary is available, there are no alternative handicaps or special live bets to satisfy those who are more demanding in this regard.

Unfortunately there’s no live streaming option available, something that is replaced by other means like live animation and statistics offered along with a scoreboard offering details on the ongoing event.
