Betway is one of the gaming giants at a European level, but its history in the Philippines is far from what we are used to. For years, it was limited to offering online slots, since it only had a license to offer slot machines while in the rest of Europe it combined casino games with sports betting. In fact, Betway made its name through betting and sponsorship of West Ham, a Premier League team that has had its name on its shirt for years.

After obtaining the necessary licenses first to expand the range of casino games, and later to operate in sports betting, Betway repeated its strategy by sponsoring several Spanish football teams in order to gain even more prominence. As a result, both the betting house and the casino have experienced significant growth in recent times. The arrival of new games at Betway Casino has strengthened this casino, which we will now get to know a little better.
Our experience at Betway Casino
On Betway's homepage, we can choose between sports, casino, live casino or eSports, and if we click on casino, we will be taken to the homepage of Betway Casino, where the ease of accessing the different games offered by the casino is highlighted: slots, roulette and blackjack. To access the live casino, simply go to the live casino section. The games are displayed independently.
To make matters even better, we can access the latest games that have been added to the casino, the most recent ones we've played, or our favorites to enjoy those games that we love so much. In the slot machines, we have the option of practice play, a demo mode that we miss in other casino games. As we mentioned, navigation is easy and intuitive, aided by the choice of colors, in this case black as the main color with blue accents, the chosen tone to differentiate the live casino (sky blue), sports betting (green), or eSports (purple).
When it comes to managing our funds, Betway Casino allows Philippines to use the most common payment methods both for making deposits and requesting withdrawals of the money we have won in their games. The process of making a deposit is quite simple. Finally, it is worth noting that the customer service is somewhat complicated to use, since although they have a toll-free phone and live chat, they do not appear directly and we have to follow a series of steps.
At first glance, we come across the essential games in any online casino: slot machines, roulette, and card games such as blackjack. However, once we delve deeper, we find some important absences and a somewhat scarce catalog of card games. It is worth noting that Betway Casino has only one software provider, Microgaming, which reduces the offer compared to other casinos but comes with the added quality of games from this company, while the live casino is provided by Evolution Gaming.
Betway Casino offers over a hundred slot titles, including Game of Thrones, Immortal Romance, Lost Vegas, Jurassic World, Twisted Circus, Thunderstuck II, 108 Heroes, Retro Reels, Hot Ink, and more. The selection includes classic 3-reel slots, as well as 5-reel and 243-line slots. Players can try them out in practice mode without betting real money, which is not an option for the other games.
The roulette couldn't be missing in the casino, although we found some striking absence. We only have four online roulettes, European roulette, roulette, sapphire roulette, and American roulette. Thus, we have three European roulettes and one American roulette, but there is no French roulette, a version of the game that we could enjoy in the past but that we have in the live section now.
Blackjack has its own section within the casino, although it can also be found under Table Games. There are only two tables for blackjack, the Classic and the Classic Multi Hand, but they cover the basics while still allowing Philippines to enjoy one of the most popular casino games. There used to be tables for baccarat as well, but they are no longer available.
✅ Live Casino
Betway has a "independent" live casino section separate from the online casino. To access six live roulettes, all featuring Evolution Gaming software, we need to click on Live Casino. We have European and French roulette, Lightning roulette and both European and French Slingshot roulettes, all with a live dealer, as well as an automatic Lightning roulette which, being automatic, does not have a dealer but allows Philippines to interact with other users. You can see the name of the dealer before playing to choose your favorites.
Betway Casino offers Philippines the most common payment methods to manage our deposits and withdrawals. We can make deposits using Visa or MasterCard cards, PayPal, Rapid transfer, Skrill, PaySafeCard, Trustly, Neteller, SafetyPay and VISA's EntroPay service, a range of options that includes both the most common methods, accepted by most online gaming operators, and some less common methods that serve to make a difference.
If you're looking to withdraw your earnings or funds from Betway Casino, you can use the methods we just discussed, provided they allow withdrawals: credit and debit cards, wire transfers, or electronic wallets such as PayPal, Skrill, Neteller, or Entropay. As usual, you'll need to use the same deposit method to manage the withdrawal whenever possible, at least for the deposited amount. For example, if you deposit $20 via PayPal and want to withdraw $30, you'll need to withdraw $20 through PayPal and the remaining $10 can be withdrawn using an alternative method.
Betway Casino is completely safe. As we mentioned, it started by offering only slots, but gradually it has been adding licenses from the AGCO, the entity in charge of regulating online gambling in Philippines. Needless to say, all their casino games comply with the principles of fair, clean and truthful play, otherwise the DGOJ would not have granted them licenses, and they would not operate in other countries where they also have the respective licenses.
Beyond the licenses of the AGCO, Betway has its own mechanisms to ensure quality gameplay, protect user data, verify the identity of users requesting withdrawals, etc. It also has the necessary mechanisms to prevent minors from accessing the game. As expected, the website features logos for Responsible Gaming, Fair Play, Self-Exclusion, and +18, as well as the eCOGRA seal.
Casino Mobile App
We can access Betway Casino games through the browser on our mobile devices, although it is preferable to install the Betway Casino app that we can find for free for iOS and Android. The former will find it on the App Store, the latter has the .apk file on the Betway website. Simply download and install it to have access to all the advantages of Betway Casino from your smartphone or tablet: slots, roulette, blackjack, baccarat, and live casino, as well as managing your funds; all optimized for use from these devices.
As we mentioned earlier, the customer service at Betway Casino is very good, although there are certain aspects that could be improved. You will see that in the top right corner there is the help button, which takes Philippines to the typical page where the most frequent user questions appear, which is available in Spanish and English. However, the rest of online casinos include contact information here, or have direct access to live chat when offered, as long as we are within their hours. This is not the case with Betway.
If you want to access the free phone or contact chat of Betway Casino, we must indicate that the customer service article has not been useful, which will take Philippines to the link we must click to contact customer service. Only then do we see the link where we can open the live chat and the free phone 900 947 054, where they will assist Philippines from Monday to Sunday between 9 in the morning and 1 in the morning. You can also send your questions by email to [email protected].
Betway Casino: Opinions and conclusion
With all this, you can already get an idea of what awaits you at Betway Casino, for better or for worse. One of the key aspects of this casino is the bet on Microgaming as the sole software provider, which has its advantages but also its drawbacks. For example, it has the endorsement of one of the best providers in the industry, offering Philippines slots of all kinds, but with the handicap of being left short in some games. The fact that there are only two options for Blackjack is understandable.
This is a drawback that significantly affects the final evaluation of the games catalog, although it should be noted that there is the option to play over 100 slots in demo mode, a mode that any player should try. Additionally, we have some of the most powerful slot machines in the market such as Immortal Romance or Game of Thrones, which helps Philippines mitigate the absence of other slots offered by different companies. However, they have one of the most complete live casinos.
Setting aside the games, the rest of what Betway Casino offers meets the standards of what one expects from any online casino. Customer support includes free chat and phone, but they are somewhat difficult to find. Let's not forget that Betway Casino regularly adds new games and that we can access them from anywhere thanks to their casino app, which helps Philippines optimize data consumption.
