In order to respond to the fast increasing customer audience’s needs that have interests in betting via mobile devices, more than 90% of the betting houses have already developed their own mobile versions, apps or both of these platform types. As a part of the elite betting website group Betway South Africa is among those bookmakers that have provided their punters a chance to choose between a mobile version and a mobile app for Android and iOS. It is here where I need to mention that the mobile application is bound with a specially tailored Lite version which is put into force very usefully by those customers who have slow internet connection or just own older mobile device models.
The mobile platforms owned by Betway South Africa have built reputation for one of the most used ones among all of the bookies in Africa. And this is certainly not a coincidence. The betting company has invested some really solid sources in its applications and mobile versions and the hard work it has done has already brought the betting system on a level which lets the punters do on their mobile phones everything they can do (and with the same ease) on their computers.
In this review you are going to find out how to download the app on your mobile device and what the main reasons for Betway Mobile to get so high rates and positive customer feedback.
Betway App Installation
If you have an Android or iOS smartphone or table and you want to use the app instead of the mobile browser website version, you need to install the softaware on your device.
The customers who use iPad or iPhone can easily download the app from the official iOS market store – Apple’s store – and they only need to type the name of this European gambling’s operator in the Apple Store search.
It is a bit more complicated for the customers with different Android mobile devices as Google doesn’t allow gambling apps with real money to be uploaded on its official Google Play Market Store. Betway South Africa, though, has overcome this problem by adding a link for Android app downloading right on its website which means you need to at first enter the bookie’s page from your mobile device browser.
The link for the application page is placed on a bit hard to be found location in the betting website. In other words, you need to scroll with your mouse to the bottom of your screen. It is where you will see a button called Betway App. It is situated right in the website footer part. Once you see this button you will be also at an ease to see the Android app downloading button, too.
When you press on this button your smartphone / tablet will notify you that you are on your way to download the app from unknown source and will ask for your permission for the downloading process. You can provide this agreement with no concerns at all as Betway is one of the most reliable gambling operators on the web as a whole. Once you make the confirmation of the installation the process will start in several seconds and few more seconds you are going to have the app on your device menu.
For all of the rest operating systems for mobile devices, as well as for all of the punters, who do not want to overfill their devices with apps, there’s a platform that is available for usage via the device browser. In this alternative, though, you are not going to receive any notifications about the upcoming interesting matches or the top hot promotions on the page. Such notifications, on the other side, are going to be sent to you once you install the app. Besides, the mobile version that is accessible via the device browser requires more data to be used which is why it is slower than the app.
Design and functionality
Betway mobile version and apps look almost the same way and we can mark that their intelligent and practical structure simplifies the entire betting activity and all of the things you do on the platform at a full value. As to the design, the developers have done everything possible for it to be as close as possible to the official Betway website.
As to the functionality, on the other side, the fact that the mobile platforms provided by Betway South Africa are probably the only ones where nothing is missing from the desktop version, speaks of itself.
Via your mobile device you can do all of the following things:
- Open an official account in Betway
- Verify your account
- Deposit funds
- Place bets on all of the matches from the pre-match and the live-betting categories
- Play three casino games – Lucky 5, Lucky 6 and Lucky 7
- Use all of the betting company’s bonuses
- Make withdrawals
- Contact the customer support service team
The Lite mode of the app, though, is a bit limited as to all of these functions. In order to make it faster in loading and to save mobile data, the betting house has excluded the lottery games from the BetGames category from it. Also, the chance to watch the match visualisation and the live statistics is removed.
