Betting may be a nice side thing, but at least once it’s not essential for most of us. Therefore, the most wide-ranging wagering programme and the most appealing promotions are of little use if there is a lack of user-friendliness.
Apart from those on football and the other particularly popular disciplines, the search for sports takes a bit of getting used to. This is due to the fact that at Betway, the relevant navigation is located under the main teaser. And that you must scroll sideways for this. This is the case for both prematch and live betting. Furthermore, this applies to both the desktop version and the mobile versions.
The Android app is not available in the Google Play Market
Betway provides you with a web app as well as equivalent applications for Android and iOS. With regard to the latter, the bookie shows you the Google Play Market, but as a customer of Betway you must use the app download. Afterwards, it is essential for the installation that you allow apps from an unknown source or origin.
Betway reminds you of the sign up code when you register
Regardless of the version you want to use, just like with any other bookie, Betway requires you to register. Here, the form comprises one page. First, the betting site asks you for your telephone number, the desired password, your first and last name as well as your e-mail address. Then you must select your ID type and enter the corresponding number. Next, you need to enter your nationality and date of birth.
Finally, Betway will ask you whether you have a sign up code. Consequently, you will have to enter it. The same applies to eventual referral codes. After this step, you agree to the terms and conditions and the data protection policy of Betway and complete the registration. Thereafter, you can continue to browse the website or make your first deposit. All this is done within a few minutes.
In the footer you find, among other things, the search function, the inbox, and the live chat
As explained at the beginning, the mobile versions have the same layout as the desktop version. Even the hamburger menu in the top-left corner remains the same. There you will find, for example, access to the promotions, the customer service, the apps, and the blog. What you must do without are the highlights and the top live games on the left of the screen. However, the bookie makes up for this with buttons in the footer for the search function, the wagering slips, the message inbox, and the live chat.
If you want to make deposits and, hopefully, withdrawals via the website, you must click on your username in the header bar. There you select the respective tab and then the desired payment method and the amount. Before that, you see the buttons for the login, sign up and the betslip in the header next to the Betway logo.
This bookie does not necessarily offer the fastest services
The fact that the operators of this betting site largely opted for identical designs in this case doesn’t exclusively represent an advantage. By this, we do not only mean the point that you have to scroll the sports below the main teaser to the side. Because: Betway’s appearances are comparatively slow. This doesn’t mean that you can’t place live bets with them, but you should have comparatively fast devices and a good internet connection at hand.
