10 years ago you would say a company like Betway were unique in the betting industry as they are only based online. These days ‘online only’ bookmakers are much more common, but probably more important than that, they are much more credible also.
Betway are based out of Malta, although they have offices all around the world including London, Cape Town and Stockholm. The couple of years or so has seen the company grow exponentially, and not just with their sportsbook. One of the driving forces behind this success is the company’s willingness to sponsor majoring sporting events such as the Premier League Darts and numerous high profile horse races throughout the UK and around the world.
The company currently hold two licenses, which allows them to trade around the world. The first is from the Great Britain Gambling Commission and the second is from the Malta Gaming Authority.

Betway is quickly becoming one of the most well rounded bookmakers in the industry and the inclusion of tons of betting markets is certainly aiding its cause. The bookmaker is starting to cover sporting events in the same way a lot of the more established bookmakers do, simply by going above and beyond in terms of the markets that are on offer.
We loved the fact that the site had more to it than a simple betting platform, for example they have now added an extensive statistics section and also a section where you can track your betting patterns to see what’s been working and what hasn’t.
Betway have clearly been working hard on the mobile section of their site as updates over the last 12 months or so has seen it change radically in this timeframe. The design is much more in keeping with their already brilliant bookmaker and it functions perfectly on both iOS and Android devices.
They’ve also gone to town on providing a solid coverage of US based sports, which isn’t always a priority for Euro facing bookmakers. Whilst the general level of coverage across the board has risen in recent times, we cant help but feel that Betway would be a go-to bookmaker if you were looking to bet on either American Football, Baseball, Basketball or Ice Hockey.
Finally, whilst not necessarily a feature, we must point out that Betway has been one of the biggest movers in the sports betting industry over the last 5 years. It’s fair to say that the bookmaker initially struggled to get a foothold with the betting side of things, but this has definitely started to turn around now, producing one of the most exciting packages out there for serious sports bettors.
