Now, all you have to do is hit the "Register" button at the bottom of the screen and you have signed up at Betway.
Betway Bonuses for Indian Players
In this part of the Betway India review, we will cover the welcome bonuses that Betway offers to Indian players, as well as the terms and conditions, and wagering requirements attached to them.
Many online casinos in India offer just one standard welcome bonus. A fixed matched bonus up to a certain amount. For example, 100% up to ₹10,000. Betway, however, take this one step further, offering Indian player the two welcome bonuses below:
- Casino Bonus - Betway offer a 100% matched welcome bonus worth up to ₹60,000
- Sports Bonus - Betway offer a 100% matched bonus worth up to ₹2,500
Below we will go into more detail about each welcome bonus at Betway, including the minimum and maximum deposits eligible for each welcome bonus, along with the terms conditions, and wagering requirements.
However, before you start reading about these welcome bonuses, it is important to note that you must tick the "I accept the Welcome Bonus Terms" box when you sign up for a Betway account (as mentioned in the "How to Sign up for Betway Account" section at the start of this review. Failure to do so will mean that you will not be able to claim either welcome bonus from Betway.
Betway Casino Bonus
The Betway welcome bonus is one of the largest you will find on the Indian market, being worth up to an eye-watering ₹60,000. However, there are a few requirements to this bonus that are important to know before you make your deposit, activate the bonus, and start playing. The first of which is the fact that this bonus is split over your first three deposits, as shown below:
- First Deposit Bonus - 100% matched bonus up to ₹15,000
- Second Deposit Bonus - 25% matched bonus up to ₹15,000
- Third Deposit Bonus - 50% matched bonus up to ₹30,000
If, for example, you wanted to receive all ₹60,000 of the Betway bonus cash available, you would need to make a first deposit of ₹15,000, a second of ₹60,000, and a third of ₹60,000. To put it simply, you would need to deposit ₹135,000 Indian rupees over three deposits to receive the maximum ₹60,000 bonus. Don't worry if your pockets aren't deep enough just yet to afford these kinds of deposits because the minimum deposit to activate each deposit bonus is just ₹500 Indian rupees.
In addition, Betway offers this welcome bonus as a Flexi Bonus, which means that you can withdraw your own cash from Betway at any time. However, you will still need to meet the wagering requirements (mentioned below) if you want to withdraw the bonus funds. This is very handy if you want to activate a bigger bonus, but don't want to invest such a large amount in your Betway account.
Although there are some very clear upsides to this Betway casino bonus, there are a few notable disadvantages. Firstly, you have just 7 days from the date of signing up to make all three of these deposits. Another big disadvantage is the fact this bonus is heavily weighted towards slots, with slots contributing 100%, but table games (including live casino tables) contributing 8%, with some versions of blackjack, poker and baccarat even contributing 0%. As you can understand because this is a casino bonus, sports and live betting also contributes 0% to this Betway bonus.
However, by far the biggest disadvantage of this welcome bonus is the fact that you have just 7 days after activating the welcome bonus to use the bonus balance and meet the 30x wagering requirement before these funds will be removed from your account. This is an incredibly short amount of time to meet these requirements. This is far shorter than the standard on the Indian market, which is around 30 days, with up to 90 days not uncommon.
Betway Sports Bonus
Betway is, first and foremost, an online sports betting site. Therefore, it is no wonder that the second Betway welcome bonus is a sports bonus. For those of you that are fans of cricket betting, horse racing, or even esports like Dota 2, the 100% matched bonus up to ₹2500 will come in very handy indeed.
For those of you who just read about the Betway casino bonus, the sports bonus may seem very small by comparison. However, this is very normal at online casinos and live betting sites in India. This is because the wagering requirements on sports bonuses are much lower than casino bonuses - giving you more of a chance of winning!
In the case of Betway, you have to wager the casino bonus 3ox before you can make a withdrawal. Whereas, with the sports bonus Betway offers the wagering requirement is just 6x - much better right?!
The only other major requirement is with which bets are eligible. A bet with odds of 1.75 or higher will contribute 100%, a bet with odds between 1.3-1.74 12%, and 1.29 or below 0%. Therefore, six bets at odds of 1.75 or higher will meet these requirements.
However, where this differs from the casino bonus is the fact that for each bet you make half of the money will come from the bonus cash, and half from the money you deposited. To put it in an example, if you place a ₹1000 bet, ₹500 will be taken from your money and ₹500 from the bonus cash. Any winnings you have will be split in the same way.
All of this means that although the wagering requirement is 6x the bonus amount, it is essentially 12x because each bet is funded 50% from the money you deposited into your Betway account.
On the plus side though, the minimum deposit to activate this bonus is just ₹200 Indian rupees. In addition, unlike the casino bonus where you have just 7 days to meet the wagering requirements, with this Betway bonus you have a much more generous 30 days.
Betway India Game Selection
In this part of the Betway India review, we will discuss the selection of casino games Betway offers, including slots, jackpots, and table games, before taking a closer look at the Betway sportsbook, including cricket betting and horse racing, before finishing by looking at the live casino games on offer, which include Andar Bahar and Teen Patti.
Casino Games & Slots
Because Betway is first and foremost a sports betting site. It would be very easy to assume that Betway would fall short when it comes to casino games and slots. And when you hear that Betway has just 450 different slot games you would be forgiven for thinking this is true.
It is fair to say that most casinos that accept Indian players offer around 1000 slots on average. Therefore, the 450 on offer at Betway is certainly on the small side, but as the saying goes "it is quality rather than quantity that matters." So, what is the quality of the slot game selection at Betway?
Betway has been offering slots since 2006. Therefore, they know a thing or two about slots that newer online casinos and betting sites just don't. That is why, not only will you find ever-popular slots such as Starburst, Gonzo's Quest, Cleopatra, Da Vinci Diamonds, and Dead or Alive, you will also find the best movie and TV themed slots such as Jurassic Park, Game of Thrones, and Narcos. Whatever theme of slot you enjoy most- from classic to mermaid - you will find that Betway has selected the very best titles for you.
This ethos carries on into the rest of the casino game selection at Betway, where you will find a few carefully selected progressive jackpot slots including Mega Moolah. Did you know that the largest ever slot jackpot was won playing Mega Moolah at Betway? The lucky winner won a Guinness World Record Jackpot of more than £13 million (that is almost 1.3 billion Indian rupees). In addition, you will also find a good choice of random number generated table games, including Roulette and Blackjack.
In closing, the casino game selection may be small, but as Betway put it themselves "you could play one game a day for a year, and still have some left over". And, when you add that all of these are quality titles, Betway becomes a great casino that accepts Indian players.
Online Sports Betting
Many online casinos that cater to Indian players really disappoint when it comes to sports betting options. Thankfully, this is not the case at Betway. In fact, Betway is one of the best and most popular sports betting sites, not just in India, but the world.
But what makes it such a great place to bet? Firstly, it is the Betway sportsbook itself. Finding the sports and events you want to bet on and place your chosen bet is simple and intuitive. To add to that, the online betting and live betting options are amongst the best you will find on the Indian market. You will immediately see a wide range of cricket betting options, including IPL betting, test matches betting, world cup betting, big bash betting, and so on. All of this makes Betway the perfect betting site for Indian players who want to bet on cricket.
But it isn't just cricket betting options where Betway excels, from horse racing to hockey Betway leads the Indian market in sports bets. Betway isn't just a leader in betting options, but also odds, guaranteeing the best on esports like Dota 2, League of Legends, and Counter-Strike.
But it doesn't stop there. The free bet options at Betway are also second to none. In large part because of its free bet club, which will give you ₹500 in free bets each week when you spend at least ₹500 on double or multiple bets in the previous week. This is just one of a number of free bets offered by Betway covering a wide range of sports including cricket, horse racing, tennis, and football.
The cherry on top of all this is that the Betway sportsbook is also available in Hindi, which is perfect if you are not so confident with your English.
Live casino games are growing hugely in popularity with Indian players, but is Betway India a good place to play these games? The short answer is a very solid, if not outstanding yes.
Betway offers around 50 live casino games, which is a decent selection compared to the rest of the Indian live casino market, but some way short of the best live casinos such as LeoVegas that offer over 100. Despite this, you will still find a good choice of Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat, Poker, and Dice games, along with games shows such as Monopoly Live and Football Studio.
The fact that most of these games are from NetEnt and Evolution Gaming - the two biggest and most trusted game providers - means that you will only be playing the highest quality games at Betway.
However, where Betway really stands out from the crowd is in its selection of live games tailored to Indian players. Along with live versions of both Teen Patti and Andar Bahar, at Betway live casino you will also find Bollywood themed Blackjack and Roulette tables hosted by Indian dealers in traditional outfits. It is worth noting though that Teen Patti is a mobile exclusive, so you will need to download the Betway casino app for IOS or Android from the App store or Google Play in order to play.
There is only one real downside to the Betway live casino, and that is the lack of VIP tables. Even though there is a Betway Lounge where you have access to private Blackjack and Roulette tables, this fact alone may be disappointing enough to put some high roller players off entirely from signing up for an account and playing at India Betway.

Frequently Asked Questions about Betway India
There are no federal laws in India that prohibit Indian players from gambling at online casinos and sports betting sites. However, each state has the power to place a ban on some or all forms of gambling if it chooses. For example, Tamil Nadu and Andra Pradesh passed laws this year banning all forms of online betting games. For this reason, it is important to make sure that you check the laws carefully in your state before you sign up to an online casino or sports betting site like Betway.

Making a withdrawal from Betway is as easy as placing a bet. All you have to do is click on the "Cashier" button and choose which payment method you wish to choose.

However, Betway gives you the option to make withdrawals via online e-wallets like Skrill and Neteller, Netbanking (which includes Paytm and GooglePay), bank transfer, as well as a number of other payment methods.
To receive your withdrawal you may have to go through the account verification process, which we explained in a little more detail in the "How to Sign Up at Betway" section above. If you do not need to go through this process, your withdrawal will go through four stages: pending, request commenced, released, completed and paid. Once your payment reaches the Paid status, you will receive your withdrawal within 2 hours to 7 days depending on the payment method you choose.
