How can I open an account on Betway – step by step
- To begin online registration, click the ‘Join Now’ or ‘Register’ button.
- First, input your details (name and date of birth).
- For the second step, you need to create a unique username, password and provide your email address.
- Next up, enter your address and mobile phone number. You can also take this moment to place deposit limits on your account and select your preferred currency.
Once complete, tick to confirm you are over 18 and that you agree with the terms and conditions before clicking ‘Register’.
For most new customers, after completing the registration form, the sign-up process is now finished, and you’re good to go. You will not receive any confirmation of your new registration though, as Betway do not send out a welcome email or text.
If you are a new customer from the UK, Betway will attempt to verify your details automatically. If they are successful, you can make your first deposit and place your first bets. Should they be unable to complete this process themselves, you will be asked to provide documentation as outlined below.
In instances where a new client has to verify their account manually, this means uploading an identity document (passport, ID card, driving licence) and an address document (driving licence, utility bill or bank statement). Although this does not need to do immediately, you will not be able to play at Betway until your documents have been verified. To upload them, simply click the ‘verify identity/address’ button and follow the instruction on screen.
Be aware that some players must complete this verification process before making a withdrawal rather than immediately after registering.
Your first deposit at Betway is just like any other, and this means that where possible, you will be paid back into the same account when making a withdrawal.
If hoping to claim a registration bonus, be sure to choose a deposit method covered by the terms and conditions of the promotion.
Click the ‘login’ button and then select the option for ‘Forgot login details?’. You will then asked to enter your email address or username. Providing you submit details that exist on the Betway system, you will receive an email link allowing you to reset your password.

The same registration form used on both the desktop and mobile site. The only minor difference is that during mobile registration, all the required fields are visible immediately, allowing you to complete the form in any order you like. As people tend to be a little more prone to making typing mistakes on smaller screens, when entering your password, you may want to click the eye symbol to make your password visible.

Is Betway allowed everywhere?
Although Betway has a strong international presence, they are not legally allowed to operate in over 60 countries, including the US, Australia, France and Turkey.
First appearing in 2006, Betway has gone from strength to strength, collecting revenues of €173m a little over a decade later. Part of their strategy is being heavily involved in sponsorship. Over the years they have struck deals with the likes of West Ham United, RSC Anderlecht, the UK Championship (snooker), Premier League Darts, the Davis Cup and the Grand National Festival.
You will also find Betway in the record books for being the bookmaker who issued the largest single payout. In October 2015, they parted with over £13m after Jon Heywood claimed Mega Moolhah’s gargantuan jackpot from just a 25p bet!

Final verdict on Betway registration review
From a big-name company, you expect a simple and smooth registration process, and that is just what you get at Betway. Everything works exactly as it should do, and for the vast majority of players, they can be placing bets just minutes after first landing on the website. The standard of customer support on hand is excellent, and we like the fact everything is just as straightforward when using a mobile device.
There is plenty of good here, but there is some room for improvement. Firstly it would be great to have some sort of confirmation after registering an account. We’d also like to see an extra security question placed on the password reset page as all it requires now is your email address. Lastly, we are surprised to see the lack of control players have over their accounts. They cannot close accounts themselves or amend any personal details, and there is generally a lack of customisation available.
