Betway eSports is what you would expect from traditional and non-endemic electronic sports bookmaker. The offer is solid and the trappings of a traditional operator are in plain sight. The website has designed a more considerate eSports section, with carefully curated picks. Not all events are covered here, nor every single game, but Betway eSports has managed to stay on the summits of the non-endemic gaming market for quite a while now. Neatly bringing mainstream features to eSports betting, the website’s gaming division charts a course for the future of the entire industry.
Betway Welcome Bonus: up to £/€30 in Free Bets
Not all eSports bookies will dabble as readily and as generously into the segment. Betway doesn’t shun a challenge, and the bookmaker brings you a welcome bonus, which dispenses with the playthrough requirements. Up to a point, at least. You may be accustomed to signing up for a bonus and then having to play through multiple times. Well, Betway seems to have changed this a bit. The wagering requirement reads slightly different than what we are used to.
The new bonus is in fact a cashable (meaning you can transfer it in your payout amount when you withdraw) free bonus. In order to sign up for the bonus, you will need to deposit a minimum qualifying amount worth £10, and this should happen within 7 days of registering your account.
- Only one bonus is allowable per person
- The deposit must be made with a debit/credit card or PayPal
- Users have 7 days from their first deposit to obtain, activate, and complete the requirement (i.e. that you play the full amount of the free bet)
Now, in order to activate that order you will have to place bets on par with the amount you have first deposited, up to £30. Only then is the free bet triggered and in fact credited to your account. You will have only 7 days to activate your free bet from the time of your first deposit. Lastly, you need to pay attention to one additional proviso, the playthrough requirements. More specifically, it matters at what odds you are wagering, in order for your staked money to count as part of the proviso, namely:
- Single bets – played at decimal odds of 1.75 or fractional of 3/4, or over
- Each-way bets – you need to play at decimal odds of 1.40 or 2/5, or over
- System bets – each selection must be at at decimal odds of 1.40 or 2/5, or over
The Extra eSports Goodies at Betway
Betway provides you with quite the breathtaking variety of eSports options. The promotions are not limited to the sign-up treat, which, even if leaving you slightly crunched for time, is quite feasible! The bookmaker just closed its special eSports free weekly bets worth £20. The promotion is done, but you should most certainly keep your eyes peeled for the new ones that will come to replace it!
Betway eSports’ registration is definitely not an ordeal. It’s a three-step progress that has you fill separate fields, including account information, personal details, and contact details. Upon finalising every step, you are referred to the next one, thus saving you some hassle. After providing the full details requested by your bookmaker, you will receive a confirmation e-mail in your mailbox. Every major e-mail provider we have tested accepts the Betway activation letter in the main box. If it fails to arrive, do make sure to check your Spam folder, just in case, or re-send the letter.
Upon completing your registration successfully, it’s advisable that you confirm your identity. That is a common practice across multiple online payment services, and bookmakers have followed suit in a bid to uproot a number of misdeeds, including underage gambling, and of course gaming fraud. This is a particularly laudable move precisely because eSports appeal to a much younger crowd than their mainstream counterparts.
You will be asked to provide a proof of identity, with documents, such as ID card, photo driving license, or a passport. You will also need to provide a proof of address, including documents like valid driving license showing your address, a bank statement, or a utility bill.
Betway eSports Coverage
Betway has a carefully selected eSports coverage. It certainly doesn’t run as numerous a title as some competitors do, but unlike other bookmakers, it dotes generously on those select-few titles. So, Dota 2, League of Legends and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive get their special promotions that run around the clock. The StarSeries i-League, a CS: GO, competition comes up with its own goodie if we are to judge by the promotional page. And with Betway overhauling its bargain treats continuously and teasing out new prospects in eSports, this is hardly the full account of things.
Betway eSports on Twitter and YouTube
Venturing into eSports is no easy undertaking. You need to understand that you are appealing to a computer-savvy, well-heeled generation of brainiacs who have plenty of income, and most importantly disposable income. That’s why you as a punter will see companies such as Betway eSports trying to build a positive image. How? Through social channels, where Betway eSports has been regularly updating its Twitter and YouTube accounts. The channels seem to be generating sufficient buzz, and you can always find out what’s new in the world of eSports and Betway’s betting bonanza!
