Betway Casino, established in 2006 and licensed and regulated in Malta, is one of the pioneers in one-stop online gaming sites with Casino, Sportsbook, International Poker Room and Bingo options. Powered by well-known Microgaminging software and certified by eCogra, Betway offers impressive 96%+ payouts, great graphics, and a user-friendly design. Betway offers all the ‘greatest hits’ (and then some) list of games, including popular progressive, online slot and table games.
Betway Game Selection and Software
Betway software is provided by the industry-leader, Microgaming. The graphics are good and the audio and game-play is superb. There are approximately 500 great games for players to choose from including progressive jackpot titles.
Betway Casino has all the games you’d expect from a global leader in the Online Gaming Industry. Along with the seemingly endless supply of Microgaming slots (including classics like Thunderstruck II, Game of Thrones and Tomb Raider as well as newer titles loaded every month) you’ll also find table games aplenty.
Betway also delivers a range of Live Dealer Casino games. To give you that realistic ‘Vegas’ feel. Betway features Live Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat and Hold’em on offer.
Betway also offers great sports betting on virtually every sport you can imagine Specifically, they do an excellent job for Canadians with a full range of North American sports betting options available such as NHL, CFL, NFL, MLB and NBA.
The Betway Casino gaming software is supplied by Microgaming and like many of their modern online casinos the desktop flash version works so well that there is no requirement to download further software. Just hook up to an average-or-better-speed reliable broadband connection and/or wifi and begin playing!
Betway Casino offers the full mobile online gambling experience without the need to download a new App on your phone. Like most players I enjoy being able to play whilst I’m on the move. In my tests, I was always able to load the Betway Casino directly from my ZTE smartphone’s browser. The Mobile version is available to both iOS and Android users with a basic requirement of having access to a stable wifi connection. The layout is cleanly organised in an efficient, clutter-free environment for the small screen and the buttons are not too small, allowing a hassle-free platform to tap your way through the mobile casino.
Bonuses and Promotions
In general, Betway does not offer many special promotions (click on the ‘plus’ tag on the top-right-hand corner of the home page for all current promos). However, there is a loyalty program that offers double points on selected games. In addition to the Loyalty Program, Betway Online Casino offers one of the more generous Welcome Bonus’ around.
‘GET CAD$1,000 FREE!’ yells the headline on the Home Page. However, it’s worth a closer look at the details.
How does it work? The bonus, as with many bonuses this size, is split up into three deposits. Upon making your first Betway deposit, you are offered a deposit bonus of 100% up to CAD$250. This means that the casino will double any amount from CAD$20 to CAD$250 that you deposit into your casino account. On your second deposit, you may take a 25% match bonus up to CAD$250, and the third deposit offers you a 50% bonus up to CAD$500. The 3 match bonuses add up to a maximum bonus sum of CAD$1000.
At Betway, the playthrough demand on the bonus is 50x, which means that you have to wager 50x the sum of the bonus you accept, before you can withdraw any winnings made with the bonus money in cash. Given the size of the ‘gift money’, this is not extreme and many online casinos have similar terms regarding playthrough conditions. To Betway’s credit, all of the terms and conditions are clearly outlined on the website to minimise any confusion.
Like many of the big global online casinos, Betway have aligned themselves with the casino watchdog organisation eCogra, which ensures and legislates casino fair play. For the peace of mind of players, the casino uses 128-bit SSL digital encryption (just like major banks worldwide) to ensure that all player data is kept safe and secure.
Betway does not offer as many banking options as many online casinos, but what they do offer is secure and reliable.
Payouts take longer than most online casinos (4-6 days) depending on payment method. Betway usually doesn’t begin processing payouts until 24-48 hours. Funds are usually returned via the original method. If your original deposit was made with Maestro, Citadel Direct or PaysafeCard you may need to contact Customer Support to arrange an alternate method.

Currencies and Languages
You can play in $CAD which removes any unnecessary exchange fees. Other major currencies are available. Betway has a number of different languages for Canadians, including English and French. A wide range of European and Asian languages are also available.
Betway is an impressive one-stop online casino with great variety of game options and a sportsbook. It would be nice to have more game providers on offer but as the software provider is the industry’s largest in Microgaming, it is not a big issue. Both Desktop and Mobile Sites are great as you can play immediately without any need to download. I was not a fan of the slower-than-industry-average payout times for Canadians. However, if you like the convenience of all your favorite gaming options on one site, you can’t go wrong with Betway.
