The Betway Casino has been known among members of the gambling community since September 2018 at the latest, when it paid out the biggest jackpot ever to a British player. A massive €17,879,645 was won by the lucky devil in the Microgaming Slot Mega Moolah, a sum that was later included in the Guinness Book of Records – the largest sum ever won on an online slot machine. And the young man played with only 25 pence bets! Has the Betway Casino such a glaring winning opportunity?
Since the Betway Casino attracted so much attention, many players have tried to follow in the footsteps of the Super Winner. But does Betway Casino have anything more to offer than the media hype of winning the jackpot? Are there really good reasons why you should become a Betway casino player, or would you just be wasting your time in a third-rate online casino that has only made headlines by chance?
A little more than a year after the incident, I’ve investigated Betway Casino in depth and share my experiences with you here in a small Betway casino review.
Betway casino website and app
The Betway casino is not colorful. While other online casinos almost exaggerate it with garish colors, huge animations and colorful slogans, the Betway Casino is mainly black, with a white shift. It couldn’t be more simplistic, and I couldn’t resist the impression that Betway Casino with this minimalist design wants to convince the visitors of its great seriousness and seriousness, in the sense of: if the other colorful, loud online casinos are for children, then we are the down-to-earth, life-experienced online casino for adults.
When you enter the website, you are informed almost neutrally about the amount of the welcome bonus – everything in black and white, except for a picture with poker chips, a bit blue. Perhaps the almost dreary design also comes from the fact that the Betway Group has its roots in England, where the weather can make you depressed?
Anyway – the website is well structured and you can find your way around. In the head bar you will find the complete Betway offer divided into its areas – sports betting, casino with software games, live casino, eSports and its own blog, the “Betway Insider”. There is also a rider with the name “Plus”: there are all promotions and promos! But more about that later.
As to be expected at a well-known online casino like Betway, the app is very popular. This is not by chance: Users rate the Betway Casino App as first class because of smooth running games, great graphics and sounds, a wide range of available games and a generally very positive user experience. Of course, the app is free for iOS and Android and if you don’t have an account yet, you can sign up from the app and claim your welcome bonus.
Betway Casino Games
The Betway Casino may not (yet!) be the most famous, but the offer feels really huge because it’s so super diverse. Everyone has slot machines and a bit of live casino, but at Betway Casino there is still an extensive sports betting area and in addition a separate corner for the increasingly popular eSports bets. Since I’m writing a casino review here, we’ll take a closer look at the casino games first.
The slot machines on which all attention is focused after last year’s million euro payout. Mega Moolah is of course still available at Betway Casino, but also other popular and fun slots, such as Thunderstruck 2, Bridesmaids, Game of Thrones, Immortal Romance, Mermaid Millions, and many more. The names of the game developers – Microgaming and NetEnt – vouch for the high quality of the slot machine software with their good reputation. According to Betway Casino, there are over 400 slot games on offer. Other online casinos have more? That may be true, but Betway Casino has a really quick-witted argument here: With 400 games you can try out a new game every day of the year and still have some left. That puts things in perspective, because who has so much time? For those who are not pensioners or rich heirs, the slot machine selection at Betway Casino is more than sufficient. Because then still the live casino games come in addition.
Of course the Betway Casino can also offer a considerable live casino range. Here Betway customers can sit down as virtual players at real tables and play against or with professionally trained live dealers. The live video transmission takes place in HD quality from the studios of live casino provider Evolution Gaming, which is the market leader in this niche. Also the offerer NetEnt makes some live Streams available.
The play offer is rather broad for a live Casino – it gives naturally the classical ones Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat and Poker, in addition, Deal or No Deal, Lightning Dice, Monopoly, Sic Bo, and different variations of the classical ones. With such a spiced up program one cannot imagine boredom at all.
