You may have seen the TV adverts for Betway and be wondering who they are and if the app is any good. Betway is newer to mobile betting than some more established brands. However, that does not mean they are behind in terms of quality.
After starting out with an Android and iPhone casino app they have since moved into mobile sports betting (they also have a desktop, mobile site and casino app). We’ve been pleasantly surprised by the betway app and think it’s a good app to use.

Betway App review
Betway is not one of the biggest sports betting companies in the UK but they are growing fast. They are making progress in the market thanks to their very strong mobile products. They are slowly creeping up our best iPhone betting apps list with their ever-improving app.
You can install the app from the Google play store, the Apple App Store, or the mobile site if you wish to save space on your device. This can be done by visiting the mobile home page via this link – Click here to get to Betway mobile – and install the site as a quick link.
The app design itself is well set out, and it’s evident that some thought has gone into the design. The options are activated by simply clicking the Betway tab, where users can choose where they want to navigate to.
Users are also greeted by the latest promotions, meaning that they don’t have to get lost in an online web in order to find the special offers and promotions. Other betting apps kick you out of the app to your web browser in order to browse the latest promotions. Not here.
The app is also pleasing to the eye. It offers basic but clear fonts that ensure you are rarely squinting to try and read what’s going on.
One of the things that set betway apart from others is the quick search built into the app. We know all the big betting sites offer this, but not many have it built into their betting apps.
On the app, you can search by event or by team name making it a doddle to find the match you want to bet on.
The app also has a dedicated live betting section for you to keep up to date with the latest scores and odds. With the app being very stable it’s quite a good app to use for checking the latest scores. Users are able to see how the matches are going on even if they’re not planning to have a bet on them.
Over time Betway has evolved and improved their app. Their current offering is excellent. There are now daily promotions on offer for existing customers which is always a bonus! For big tennis and football matches, they have a crowd and court-based backgrounds that give a more immersive feel to the in-play betting markets.
Betway App Features
The app does a good job in its housekeeping, ensuring that the plethora of markets and options available are categorised in such a way, that locating them is as simple as a few swipes of the thumb.
When the app first launches, it acts as a portal for the many different games on offer. Users are able to flick between casino games, Vegas-inspired games and in-game sports betting with relative ease.
One of the latest features to be added to the betway app is the #betyourway bet builder. Users can now combine up to ten selections on applicable football matches to create one large bundled bet.
Users can also view other people’s combinations to get a bit of inspiration and choose to either back themselves or to tweak the selections slightly. The bet builder does not contain as many markets as some others out there.
However, if the bet builder does fail to give the markets desired, there is always the option to request the bet with betway directly. This can be done by Tweeting with the hashtag #betyourway. The betway support team will then get back in touch to let you know whether they are prepared to price it up or not.
Best betting app for E-sports?
There is also a dedicated esports section, something that is not often seen within other betting apps. This can be accessed from the dedicated menu bar at the top of the app. You may have to swipe the menu to the left if you are on a mobile phone to see this option.
All of the popular titles are covered, as well as some more obscure ones.
Betway have two free games that they offer out on a regular basis that gives users the chance to win thousands of pounds as a jackpot winner. These games are called “4 to score” and “4 to win”.
4 to score is a football competition, whereby users have to try and correctly predict the first goalscorer from 4 games selected by betway. The Jackpot can rise up to £50,000 in this game and the jackpot amount offered is shared between those who correctly guessed all four goal scorers.
4 to win works on a similar basis, but is based on horse racing. This game offers a prize jackpot of £1,000 between Sundays and Fridays and £10,000 on Saturdays. Pick the 4 horses from the select races who you think will win and then answer a tie break question.
There is no shared jackpot here and the tiebreak question will be used to separate the winner from all those who correctly guessed all four winning horses. The tie break question is usually to predict the winning margin from one of the select races.
As well as the app for sports betting they also have a very good casino app too. this can also be found in the app stores. You can use the same account and balance across all apps, which is handy.
Casino fans have three different apps to install and check out from the betway brand. There’s the betway Casino app, the betway Vegas app and the betway Live Casino app. All bring the same level of service as experienced with the sports betting app.
There’s plenty of choice here, which should satisfy anyone looking for slots, table games, live dealers, or even something a little more exotic like live game shows. All apps are available on the Google Play Store and Apple App store, apart from the Vegas app. This is only available on the Apple App store and is therefore an iOS exclusive.
Overall Betway stands well alongside the better-known brands. It is worth downloading purely for the in-play features and the free bet! However, there is much more on offer.
The Betway app does a good job of keeping a lot of information and games stocked into one aesthetically-pleasing app that’s also very responsive. As well as offering gamers a number of games that are of interest to them, its cross-promotion means that users can very easily try their hand at something new if indeed they fancy taking them.
It is also good that a promotions tab has been included, as this saves gamers from mindlessly searching for something that may not even be there. The promotions tab advises of the more permanent offers, as well as some time-limited offers. As everything is included within the app, it’s very unlikely that you will ever miss out on any special offers.
An attractive and robust app that offers gamers all they’re looking for, and then some more.
