Founded by owners Betway Limited Casinos in 2005, Betway Casino has turned into something of a veteran in the youthful world of online casino gambling. The site, integrated in the Betway gaming network, is licensed by both the Malta Gaming Authority and the UK Gambling Commission, and it operates exclusively on Microgaming software. Betway Casino offers instant play on any desktop device, with a number of its games also available for mobile play on smart phones.
There is an impressive collection of Microgaming Slots games available at Betway Casino, ranging from old-school single-payline three-reelers to the latest, most advanced video slots, complete with movie franchise tie-ins. Lucrative bonus rounds and progressive jackpots are a feature of many Slots options, and the site hosts some of today’s top-rated Slots around the world, like Avalon II, Immortal Romance, Terminator II and Thunderstruck II.
Table and Live Games
Apart from Slots, Betway Casino also offers a decent range of table games. These include the usual Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat and Poker, all of which come in several variations, as well as the popular dice game Craps. The site also hosts a number of Video Poker options, in both single-hand and multiple-hand incarnations. However, Betway Casino also acknowledges that the authentic “feel” of a land-based casino can only be fully evoked with live, interactive play and other players at the table. For this reason, the site also hosts Live Baccarat, Blackjack and Roulette games, with real dealers and croupiers, 24/7.
Restrictions, Languages and Currencies
Players in the USA, Russia and South Africa, along with at least 17 other countries, are not permitted to gamble at Betway Casino. Local regulations concerning online gambling will differ from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, so the onus is on players to determine the legal position regarding any site before they register to play. The site’s largely European market is reflected in the number of languages it can support: Czech, Danish, English, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Italian, Latvian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, Swedish and Russian. Betway also accepts 11 currencies, including Australian, New Zealand, Canadian and US dollars, British pounds sterling, and Euros.
Security and Support
As common in most top online casinos for players in the UK, Betway Casino uses 128-bit SSL encryption to protect personal data and banking details. The site’s games are audited for fairness on a monthly basis by independent authority eCOGRA, and unlike most other online casinos, Betway Casino makes these audits (and the return-to-player-percentages information they contain) public. The site employs a full support team permanently, so players can get support or have queries answered at any time of the day or night, either via live chat or email.
As an indication of how seriously Betway Casino takes customer service and fast, easy access to online gaming, the site accepts more than 30 banking options when players make deposits. These include Direct Bank Transfer and Bank Wire Transfer, credit and debit card options like MasterCard and Visa, and specialist online pay sites like PayPal, Neteller and Paysafe Card. There are also more than 15 banking options for withdrawals, including instaDebit, Citadel Direct, Skrill and QIWI.
