When it comes to popular online bookies, there aren’t many with more prestige than Betway. The company has been around since way back in 2006 and has attracted millions and millions of customers from all over the world over the last 15 years since its formation.
So, it must be doing something right and that’s part of what we’re finding out about today. In particular, we’ll be looking at the betting app for Betway that you can download for your smartphone if you’re based in one of the locations that Betway is licensed to operate in.
In the US, the app’s only actually available to downloady in five states right now. So, if you’re lucky enough to be in one of them, you’re not going to want to miss out on the Betway sports betting app! If you’re not, you might want to start a road trip to the closest state.
What exactly is so great about this particular betting app? Why are so many people so keen to download it and play on it? There are a few answers to these questions actually. We’ll be answering both throughout this article.
But before we do that, let’s find out where you’ll need to be if you want to download the app in the first place.
Which states are the Betway sports betting app legal in?
Right now, it’s possible to access the Betway sports betting app in five states: New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Iowa, Indiana and Colorado.
The reason for this is the sports betting laws that are in place in the US. These laws can be really confusing at the best of times! For example, in some states it’s legal to bet online only, some other states it’s in-person only, some it’s either and some it’s neither! What a headache.

In the meantime, if you’re based in a state that’s not listed above, you’ll need to relocate to one of the ones mentioned if you want to play on the Betway sports betting app. Or, you could alternatively relocate to a whole other country in which it’s legal, for example, the UK or Germany.
What’s so good about the Betway sports betting app?
The Betway app has certainly generated a lot of buzz in the betting community and there are a few good reasons for that. Here are a few reasons why we think the app is great.
Awesome welcome bonus
The welcome bonus (often known as the new customer bonus) for Betway is also available when you sign up through the app. What you actually get depends on the location you sign up in. Even in the US, the bonus is different depending on which state you’re in. Let’s break that down:
● Colorado, Iowa and Indiana: a risk-free bet of up to $250 when you sign up for a new account.
● New Jersey and Pennsylvania: a risk-free bet of up to $1000 when you sign up for a new account.
WE hear you ask ‘What is a risk-free bet though?’. Basically, a risk-free bet can’t be lost! You get your stake back if you lose, in the form of bonus funds.
There are terms and conditions that apply to the kind of odds that you can place this risk-free bet on and a few market restrictions, so make sure you take a look at those before you place the bet.
Beautiful app design
A well-designed app can go a long way and Betway has that in the bag. The app looks awesome!
Plus, there are some great features on the app, such as being able to live stream the matches you’re betting on some of the time. Or, you can choose to watch some cool graphics that demonstrate what’s going on alongside live stats.
Great markets and odds
Whether you’re looking to bet on Formula 1, tennis or eSports, there are loads of choices of what to bet on on the Betway sports betting app. Not only are there a lot of sports to choose from but there are plenty of markets within them too.
So, it’s not just about who is going to win a particular event. You can break it down way more than that. For example, in a soccer game, you can bet on how many yellow cards there are going to be in a game or who will be the first goal scorer.
