Betway sportsbook is a mainstay in Europe and has experience in both the sports betting and online casino industries.
With only a month to go before Ohio sports betting kicks off on Jan. 1, Betway sportsbook is set to make Ohio the eighth U.S. state where it operates.
Here’s what Ohioans should know about Betway USA and its move into the Ohio sports betting market.
Ohio will be eighth state where Betway operates
Betway USA is available in Virginia, Colorado, New Jersey, Indiana, Iowa, Arizona and Pennsylvania. New Jersey and Pennsylvania are the only states where both casino gaming and sports betting are permitted. Betway continues to grow its platform as more states legalize mobile sports betting and online gambling.
Betway is an official partner with the NHL and an authorized gaming operator of the NBA. The company also advertises partnerships with sports organizations like the New Jersey Devils, Philadelphia Flyers, Milwaukee Bucks, Philadelphia 76ers and Golden State Warriors.
In 2015, Betway became the principal partner of the Premier League’s West Ham United F.C.
The sportsbook offers a wide variety of sports and betting types, as evidenced by its partnership with major U.S. professional leagues. It also offers prop bets like who will receive the first yellow card in a particular soccer game, along with live-betting options.
Betway users can win without risk
Betway also offers contests that allow users to win money without risking any of their own. Common contests include NFL and NCAA football, where users earn points by correctly predicting game outcomes by playing the spread set for that game. The Betway Big Pick allows for users to compete for a $5,000 prize that goes to the individual with the most points in the contest.
Betway users can deposit funds into their accounts via credit card, PayPal and more. The company is a subsidiary of Super Group. In January, Super Group listed on the New York Stock Exchange and currently trades under the ticker symbol SGHC.
Sports betting just one gaming option Betway offers
Betway is joining one of the most robust sports betting markets in the U.S. that will offer upwards of two-dozen online sportsbooks. The company will arrive with significant experience in the online betting space.
The company specializes in online gambling. It was founded in 2006 and is currently headquartered in London. It has additional offices in Malta, Guernsey and South Africa. Betway holds licenses in several countries across Europe, North America and Africa.
It offers players a variety of entertainment options, including sports betting, online casinos and poker. Online casinos include slot machine games as well as table games like blackjack and roulette.
Betway recently partnered with Pragmatic Play
Betway partnered with Pragmatic Play this year to launch a live blackjack studio that allows players to see dealers on camera to simulate a real casino experience. CEO Anthony Werkman praised the partnership.
“Creating incredible gaming experiences for our players is a priority for us, so launching a new dedicated live and immersive blackjack studio with Pragmatic Play is something we’re all excited about.”
Werkman joined the company in 2013 and took over CEO responsibilities in November 2017 after previously serving as a marketing and operations director. The board also includes Chairman Richard Akitt and Finance Director Damaris Galea.
