In-Play Betting - Good
Not many come close to Betway in their in-play options offered to their customers.
Firstly, their website has an easy interface for users to navigate which gives a good experience in total.
The "Live" button is at the far left area at the top of the screen, just beside the "Sport" button. Upon clicking the Live icon, punters are provided with a lot of in-play options ranging from football, basketball, hockey and down to the likes of esports and casino games.
Live events are arranged according to the various sports markets. On the right-hand side of each game, a user has the option of selecting "More Bets" to view other in-play options for that particular game.
Using football as an example, the 1X2 is the common option seen in the life bet and upon selection, punters can pick from card markets, player to score, type of goal, over and under, corner kicks and minutes for goals to be scored.
Betway also has a "Top Live games" section which shows the most highly rated games available at the moment for all sports categories.
Coupled with all of that, Betway can watch the action as it unfolds thanks to detailed live-streaming service. Football, tennis, basketball, and eSports feature regularly on their site, with a positive account balance all that is needed to gain access.
Just like many other bookmakers, they also have a swift cash-out option that allows customers to cut their losses on games in-play with a low probability of coming through. This further encourages many users to play via the online method to be able to access this feature.
Being one of the early comers in the Nigerian betting scene, they still have that nostalgia effect on customers to date.
