Is Betway any good? Well, in this Betway review we hope to show that it is better than that, and, should be one of the bookmakers you consider taking your betting to this Cheltenham Festival.

Founded in 2006, they are still a relatively ‘new’ bookie. However, the exposure they have got themselves across a multitude of sporting disciplines just shows how serious they are. They’ve sponsored the PDC Darts as well as being West Ham United’s main shirt sponsor.

But, it is the dedication shown by the Betway horse racing market that we’re more interested in! They’ve sponsored races at Cheltenham previously and also became the official betting sponsor for the Grand National.

Betway Cheltenham offers are commonplace and are often angled at offering their customers money back specials. This year will be no different for those looking for great Betway promotions! 

We are yet to have the 2019 offers for the Cheltenham Festival, however, you will find them here as soon as they’re live, so make sure to bookmark this page. Meanwhile, here is a quick overview of what Betway offered to the punters during the previous-year Festival.

One offer which ran last year and was hugely popular was their money back on the first and last race of the day, EVERY day, up to a maximum of a £10 Betway free bet. There will likely be many more Betway offers of this ilk too throughout the Festival.

Non Runner No Bet

Aside from Betway’s Cheltenham betting, they offer plenty of staple horse racing perks. Such as Non Runner No Bet, or as it is often abbreviated to applicable markets/races as NRNB. This is one of the staples for those keen on their racing. This allows you to get on the racing from Cheltenham early doors, with the added benefit of getting better odds!

Worried about getting caught out though and your horse not running in the race as you were so far ahead of the declarations? There’s no need to worry here, as if your horse doesn’t run your bet will be void and you’ll get your stake back.

Best Odds Guaranteed

As well as getting the NRNB safety net as a reward for getting your bets on early, you can also benefit from their Best Odds Guaranteed. This is when you place a bet at the odds available, then if your selection leaves his stall at a better price – you’ll be paid out at that higher price instead. Simple! Luckily for you all, along with their Best Odds Guaranteed, these two Betway horse racing offers are always live and running throughout the year.

How To Bet On Cheltenham Festival 2019 With Betway

So, now you know what you could be in store for, you’re not just betting on Cheltenham this year, make sure you’re Betway betting!

Create an Account

  • To get your betting going, head over to their website and in the top right-hand corner, nicely highlighted in green, you’ll see the ‘Register’ tab. Click on that to get the process underway.
  • Once you click on it, you’ll be redirected to a new page containing the forms you need to fill in. You’ll be directed through; Account Information, Personal Details and Contact Details.
  • A friendly reminder, make sure you tick the boxes you wish to receive news and promotions from Betway – otherwise you may miss out on some exclusive offers!

After this, you’ll be redirected back to the homepage. However, you’re now signed in. To get going, you’ll need to make your first deposit into your account – so click on your username in the top right-hand corner of the page, and it’ll present you with a drop-down menu. Click on the deposit tab, and you’ll get a pop-up window to enter your card information in.

If you’re lucky (and a UK resident), you’ll get a Betway sign up bonus in that they may be able to verify your information electronically without you having to provide any details or proof of identification. If not, you’ll have to comply with their verification process as per the Know Your Customer initiative. You will need to provide them with proof of address and proof of identity, and, please note that these cannot be the same piece item.

Take Advantage of Betway Sign Up Offer

The current Betway new customer offer is their £30 Welcome Free Bet, meaning that you’ll get your deposit matched 100% up to a maximum of £30. You do need to bet through your deposit however, so bare this in mind and check the T&C’s before you expect to instantly receive this Betway welcome offer.

Get On Track Early With Ante Post betting

When it comes to Cheltenham Festival, you may be tempted to get your bet on early before the final declarations. In that case, head over to the home page. Then click on the horse racing widget on the banner at the top of the page. Then, you’ll find yourself in the horse racing market!

Betway nicely lay out the Next Off, Today, Tomorrow and Ante-Post markets currently available to you. So, if you wanted to get a quick bet on the next race to be ran across the UK, head there. If you knew a specific race from Cheltenham you wanted to have a punt on this afternoon click on Today and navigate with the time of that race. Simple!

Ante-Post differs from NRNB slightly though, so it’s worth baring the Betway horse racing rules in mind here. With greater odds, come greater risks. Whereas with NRNB you are covered by the possibility of your horse not running the race, with ante-post betting, you aren’t. If you put your money on a horse in the ante-post market and it doesn’t run in the race you selected – your bet will be treated as a losing one.

Sing Up For Betway Plus Card

You’ve probably heard about numerous bookies’ exclusive cards which give their customers extra bonuses, and offers. However, that isn’t the case here as EVERY punter is automatically enrolled to Betway Plus as part of their sign-up, for free. You could say it’s yet another Betway sign-up offer!

You will have your own tier ranking, which is progressed with the more you bet. Starting at Blue with the possibility of moving your way up to Black. You can see below the vast array of benefits to utilising this service. If you didn’t fancy it, you need not worry about it though. But check out all of those perks as you move up the tiers!

Another fine benefit to betting with Betway is their social led #betyourway feature. We all know the drill with these features by now, if you had a specific market you wanted priced up and couldn’t find it on the website – you can tweet to @Betway with your requested market and let them price it up for you!

If you’re not quite creative enough to utilise this, you can also take advantage of other peoples created #betyourway markets. Simply click on the tab which is located in all applicable markets, and, have a bet on it. What’s more is that when you have a £5 bet on any #betyourway market, you’ll get a £5 Free Bet for doing so!

Watch Cheltenham 2019 Live

To round this trio of fantastic benefits up, why not make sure you can watch the action from Cheltenham live?
With Betway, you can do just that. The only precursor is that you have a funded account, in other words, you’ve made a deposit of at least £10.

The streams are, of course, better suited when you’re on a desktop/laptop/tablet – however if you have good signal, or connection to WIFI then why not utilise this service via the Betway mobile site?

But what is the use of all of the above if you don’t know how to collect your winnings! Betway withdrawal is clearly outlined in text, and a nifty little video, in their FAQs section. Whatever your desired Betway withdrawal method is, they outline it all here.

To get to the withdrawal page, simply click on your username in the top right-hand corner which will bring down that drop-down menu again. Click on the withdraw tab, and, you’ll get a new pop-up window to get your Betway withdrawal process going.
