And that excellent welcome offer is far from the only promotion available from Betway. At the time of writing the following promotions were available for sportsbook users:
4 to score: A free prediction game with a huge jackpot.
Simply pick the first goalscorer across four selected matches to win. Much like the welcome offer, this is about as close to a win-win situation you can get in promotions.
The jackpot is £25,000 and is shared among the winners. If no one wins, it will be rolled over to the following round up to a cap of £250,000.
All you need to participate is a Betway account. It is only available in Canada, Ireland and the United Kingdom. All winners will be contacted by SMS or e-mail and the prize will be forfeited if they cannot be contacted within seven days. Another great risk-free bonus.
Wednesday Special Money Back Second: Place a bet on selected racecourses with six or more runners and if your winning pick comes second you will be refunded in the form of a free bet up to £20.
Minimum odds 1.5 or higher and forecast, tricast and system bets do not count.
Free bets are credited within 24 hours and expire after a further 24 hours. This offer is only available to accounts registered in the United Kingdom, Isle Of Man, Jersey, Guernsey and Ireland.
ITV Racing Money Back Second: Identical to the previous promotion but exclusive to ITV races.
4 to win: Similar to the 4 to score promotion this instead allows you to enter a free competition where you attempt to correctly predict four winners on horse races. The daily prize pot is £1000 with increased jackpots on ITV meetings.
The competition is one entry per day. In the case of a dead heat, both horses will be considered winners. The same terms and conditions for the 4 to score promotion apply with regards to contacting the winner.
Horse Racing 25 Bonus Spins on Final Furlong: A rare example of a crossover between sportsbook and casino promotions.
Here you’ll receive 25 free spins on Final Furlong for every £5 stake on horse racing, or £2.50 each way. Minimum odds are 3.00. Bonus spins are credited within 24 hours of the bet being placed and will be valid for 48 hours. This offer is only available to accounts registered in the United Kingdom, Isle Of Man, Jersey, Guernsey and Ireland.
NBA You Lead You Win: If you back a team to win and they lead by 12 points but then go on to draw and lose, the bet will come out as a winner. Maximum qualifying stake is £20. Pre-match single bets on Win/Draw/Win and money line qualify. The following countries are not eligible for this offer: Armenia, Belarus, Belgium, Canada, Croatia, Georgia, India, Italy, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Moldova, Sweden, Switzerland, Russian Federation and Ukraine. Other than that, this offer simply improves your chances of winning which can only be seen as a big positive.
NFL You Lead, You Win: Same as the previous offer for all intents and purposes but with your team leading by 14 points in the NFL instead. Another great offer.
Betway Free Bet Club: Spend £25 or more on trebles in a week and you will receive two £5 free bets.
All you need to do is opt-in and spend the money to qualify. Better still, all enhanced markets are eligible, including those benefiting from the Betway Boost. However, system bets are not. The following countries are not eligible for this offer: Armenia, Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Croatia, Finland, Georgia, Germany, India, Italy, Kazakhstan, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Mexico, Moldova, Norway, Russian Federation, Spain, Sweden and Ukraine. Free bets expire after seven days.
WePlay Bukovel Minor & Live Casino: Another crossover between the different areas of Betway.
Here, wagering £10 on Bukovel Minor (Dota 2) and the live casino can net you a £10 free bet. A slightly unusual mix for sure but you can’t doubt the value. Minimum odds on the Esport is 1.50 and the following countries do not qualify: Armenia, Belarus, Belgium, Croatia, Georgia, Italy, Kazakhstan, Moldova, Russian Federation, Spain, Sweden and Ukraine. The free bets expire after seven days and deposits need to be played through once to be activated.
Esports objectives: This provides reward tiers through betting on Esports. In order to get to the bronze level, you need to win an Esports double, for this, you receive a £5 free bet and 5 bonus spins.
In order to get to the silver level, you need to win an Esports treble, for this, you receive a £10 free bet and 10 bonus spins.
In order to get to the gold level, you need to win an accumulator, for this, you receive a £15 free bet and 15 bonus spins.
Minimum stake per bet is £10 and minimum odds is 1.25. The maximum in free bets is £30 and the maximum free spins are 30.
The following countries are not eligible: Armenia, Belarus, Belgium, Croatia, Georgia, Italy, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Moldova, Russian Federation, Spain, Sweden and Ukraine.
This is probably the bonus which asks the most from its users and considering how relatively little it is compared to what is asked by many competitors, that should be taken as a compliment.
All in all, we have been hugely impressed by the promotions at Betway. Not only do these promotions offer serious value but they do so in a way which can be enjoyed by their players in general as opposed to just the high rollers.
On top of that, they provide ways to get interested in various types of betting across different parts of the site. If the goal of promotions is to improve the user experience, then this is mission accomplished. One of the absolute best selections we’ve come across.
