Betway Casino Trust Score (10)
Betway is a legend in the sports book industry but they also have a really good Canadian online casino. Really I don’t need to go into to much detail here about their trust score. I still do my due diligence to make sure nothing has changed. So this is what has happened. Betway has undergone some changes over the last couple of years. They were bought out by Buffalo partners and then were spun out again. What does this mean to you? Well, one the fact they left Buffalo is a good thing. Betway now has NetEnt games and aren’t restricted to Buffalo’s requirements. But I digress, we are talking about trust here so let’s get to the facts.
They are registered in Malta and are audited by eCOGRA, which automatically puts them in the 8 or above class of trust scores. But here at The Ultimate Steal, we dig a little deeper and check out the latest happenings around the affiliate world. The biggest deal at the moment is happening at Ask Gamblers, where they have a warning for outstanding complaints not resolved. To be fair, Ask Gamblers is not the end all, be all of player complaint systems. It is a voluntary system that online casinos use to gain trust. A lot of the big casinos have their own complaint systems, by law, they need to follow and find the extra burden of these type of affiliates too much to manage. Also realize the big affiliates sometimes abuse their power and downgrade casinos because they don’t pay up enough. So, as an experienced affiliate, my take is they don’t feel they need to address the complaints there but would prefer to address them directly or through eCOGRA.
These type of things happen in the industry and, since moving on from Buffalo Partners, they are taking a more proactive approach. For the time being, I will give them the benefit of the doubt given their extensive history and relatively normal player reviews. Their trust score is 10 but being monitored for a possible downgrade.
What Makes Betway Casino Unique
Did I mention they are a legend in the industry? Betway has made their name in the sports book industry and sponsor of many sporting events and teams, most notably West Ham United Football Club. But we are here to talk about online casinos. If you asked me a year ago how I would rate Betway, I would say they are just another Microgaming casino with a brand name and a sports book. OK, that is a little harsh. They were a sports book with a Microgaming casino. Great for those sports betters that also want to play a slot or two.
Betway, in the last few months, has started to take their online casino seriously. They have expanded to include NetEnt games and NetEnt’s live dealer games in addition to Evolution Gaming’s selection. Although not the biggest, it does have a wider variety of experiences than other comparable casinos. They have transformed themselves into a casino and sportsbook on par with casinos like LeoVegas. Neither is the biggest online slots casino out there, but they each have plenty of selection and offer great sports betting and live casino offerings. Most players will be fully satisfied with their casino offering but, if you like to dabble in sports betting, it definitely puts Betway over the top.
Betway Responsible Gambling
Betway has an extensive responsible gambling section but unfortunately none of it is automated. Whereas some casinos enable you to set time limits or betting limits automatically, Betway takes an opposite approach of giving you manual options to limit your betting. The good news is that they are extensive and, by player reviews, effective.
To be honest, it is not that difficult to enable them. Just email [email protected] and you will be able to enact any of the following responsible gambling limitations:
Deposit limits can be set, increased or decreased from the following time periods and can be changed after a 7 day cooling off period
- Daily (00:00 GMT. to 23:59 GMT.)
- Weekly (Monday to Sunday)
- Monthly (calendar month)
You can “Take a Break” for any amount of time ranging from 24 hours to 3 months.
You can also self-exclude which will prevent you from gambling from any Betway related property indefinitely. If you want to start gambling again you have to request this and, after an accepted request and a mandatory 7 day cooling off period, you can gamble again.
