Seeing that Betway brags about being “on top of all the major tournaments around the world, bringing you the best esports odds on the market”, we decided to put it to the test and compare its odds with those of Pinnacle and GG.BET. We picked three CS:GO matches offered by all three bookmakers and here’s what we got:
With the peculiar case of GG.BET who chose as favourite a total different team for the third match, Betway does seem to offer equal or better odds compare to other bookmakers.
Betway is one of the most active operators when it comes to promotions or welcome bonuses but unfortunately none of them, at the time of the review, were eSports dedicated. As with other bookmakers out there, the most relevant welcome offer you can get, as a new player is the sportsbook offer. Also, depending on the country you’re from, a specific welcome offer might not be available at all. The simplest way to see what bonuses and promotions you’re entitled to is to visit your account section. All Betway players automatically receive a bonus which becomes active after logging in or the first deposit.
Example of bonus you might receive, based on your market:
Deposit bonus or no Deposit bonus
The bonus that was available to us was a £/$/€30 Free Bet welcome bonus. Basically, a 100% match based on your first Credit/Debit Card or PayPal deposit, up to £/$/€30. To activate the Free Bet we needed to place bets at odds of 1.75 or higher, totalling the value of our 1st deposit (up to £30).
Players wanting to deposit funds in their Betway account have a multitude of methods available. Visa, MasterCard, Neteller, Bank Transfer, Skrill, PayPal are all supported. The minimum deposit and withdrawal amount is usually €10 (or currency equivalent). Withdrawal times are as follows:
Webwallet: 2-24 hours
Credit/debit card: 1-3 business days
Bank account: 1-3 business days
BetWay Help Center is a FAQ type of platform that tries to answer the most common question you might have regarding withdrawals, deposits, verification process, promotions and of course sports betting rules. The live chat, although present, is a bit too hard to find as there are no direct ways to get there other than the link here

There are few online bookmakers out there that can compare to Betway in terms of eSports partnerships.
Betway served as the main sponsor for Ninjas in Pyjamas, one of the most renowned professional Counter-Strike teams in the world, for the past year and this year they’ve extended their partnership for another three years. MIBR, a Brazilian esports brand and Invictus Gaming, a Chinese DOTA 2 team are also sponsored by the bookmaker.
Betway is also one the main backers of the ESL Pro League, one of eSports’ greatest Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournaments. Running from August to December, the ESL Pro League is among the most famous competitions on the planet, with 28 of the planet’s best groups competing for a share of the $1 million prize pool.
In 2018 Betway also agreed to sponsor the FACEIT London Major, the first Counter Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) Major event in United Kingdom, adding another major partnership next to their existing ones with ESL One, Intel Extreme Masters and the ESL Pro League.
