Betway Sportsbook Announcement

Hot on the heels of Bally Sportsbook’s big announcement earlier this month, Betway, a major European brand sportsbook, has announced that they will be entering the United States sportsbooks scene.

Betway signaled its intention to move into the US market with its recent brand license agreement with casino supplier Digital Gaming Corp.

Who is Betway and when will the sportsbook come to the USA, which states will it be present in and what will they offer? These are the questions we aim to answer on this page.

Who is Betway Sportsbook?

Betway is a major sportsbook with licenses to operate in seven countries including the United Kingdom, Ireland, Italy, France, Sweden, Spain, Belgium, Denmark, and Mexico. Betway also holds a license in Malta that allows them to enter other markets around the globe.

With the addition of the United States market, Betway will be joining a long list of established and large sportsbooks that will become their competitors. Check the following list of sportsbooks to see which ones are already present in most legalized states.

Betway Sportsbook Sign up Process

When Betway launches in the United States we can assume that it will be similar to how it is set up in Europe and Mexico. Users in those places can sign up with Betway simply by providing some details including:

  1. Name
  2. DOB
  3. Address
  4. Email
  5. Phone

It is likely that in the USA users will also be prompted to give some extra information including a photocopy of their ID. Once that is complete you will be compelled to confirm that you are of legal betting age in accordance with your home state.

Betway Sportsbook Pros and Cons

Although it is still early to tell how the eventual rollout in the United States will appear, we can look to Europe and Mexico to get a sneak peek into how Betway will likely be set up.

Betway Deposit Options and Payment Times

Betway is one of those few and favored sportsbooks that offer deposit sign-ups for as low as $10. Small deposit sportsbooks are often favored by sports bettors since they can download and compare odds for very little money upfront to find out if the sportsbook is completely right for them. For this reason, $10 sportsbooks are generally favored.

When Betway launches you can expect many methods for depositing and withdrawing your funds from the sportsbook. E-transfer, credit card, PayPal, cryptocurrency, and banking transfer apps are the most commonly supported by sportsbooks but Betway is sure to offer even more.

Payout times at Betway around the globe can be as much as 72 hours to get your winnings but that can be longer if it falls on a weekend.

Betway Sportsbook Sportsbetting App

In the countries Betway is already present in, they offer a robust and competitive sports betting app tailored for both iOS and Android phones. On the app users enjoy promotions, a wide variety of betting options, and features.

Live-in-game wagers are also available on the app, which adds a compelling and interesting dimension to an already engaging app. There is also a search function that will likely make it to the eventual USA version that users have found to be very helpful.

Which States will Betway be Available in?

At this moment it seems likely that Betway will move into the Colorado sports betting community as well as the New Jersey sports betting markets first, but rest assured, Betway has every intention of becoming a major player in the US sports betting scene.
