Betway Sportsbook has officially introduced their global brand to the healthy Indiana sports betting market. While not a hugely identifiable name within North American legal sports betting circles, Betway and their parent company Super Group have been a recognizable name in the European scene for years.
The company is licensed in around 25 jurisdictions throughout Europe, South America, and Africa and boasts over 2.5 million users worldwide. Betway has introduced themselves to American bettors in a number of ways since arriving in the United States in April 2021, including key sponsorship deals with the NHL, and NBA teams like the Chicago Bulls, Golden State Warriors, Brooklyn Nets and LA Clippers.
Betway brings with them to Indiana more than a decade of experience delivering sports betting products globally, one of the largest betting menus in the market, and a reputation for great bonus offers, quick payouts, reliability, and excellent customer service. They hope to ride those traits to their share of an impressive Indiana betting pie. Follow along as we dive deeper into the Betway IN experience from their welcome bonus, to their sign-up procedures, software review, banking options, their markets, and sports Betway offers to their loyal clientele.
Betway Indiana bonus offer
Betway is offering their new Indiana sportsbook clients a chance to get in on the wagering action risk-free without the worry of draining their betting account on their first Betway experience. New clients in Indiana will be afforded a $250 risk-free bet as “insurance” on their first bet. Once bettors are logged in after creating a new account, and make a real-money deposit into their Betway account, the risk-free offer is waiting for them. No promo codes are necessary at this time and a minimum $10 wager is required. The bet must have odds of at least -330 qualify for the promotion. Users must be 21+ to bet in Indiana.

A risk-free bet simply means that win or lose, your first wager with Betway won’t place you in the red. Place your first bet with Betway Indiana and if you win, congratulations – you will be paid out as normal. Lose your first bet and Betway will generously credit your account for the full amount of the bet (maximum $250). It is a chance for new clients to get familiar with the Betway site, the betting nav, and do so without the anxiety of losing money with their first every wager on the site.
The welcome offer is only eligible for a new customer’s first bet with Betway in Indiana and must be placed within seven days of registration. Only losing bets will be awarded the promotion. If the initial wager loses, bettors will receive the rebate in the form of free bets. Any received free bets will be awarded within 72 hours of bet settlement and will be non-withdrawable. That means you need to bet them in the sportsbook to convert them to real money.
Now for our overall thoughts of the risk-free promotion. Betway’s welcome bonus for new users is slightly underwhelming when compared to others wresting for market share in the exploding US and Indiana legal sports betting industries. Other Indiana competitors have come forward with bonuses of around $1K in value. But regardless, it does act as a nice introduction to the site for experienced and new gamblers alike.
Betway’s presence in Indiana
Betway was launched in the state of Indiana on May 28, 2021, after receiving final approval from the Indiana Gaming Commission earlier that month. It is through a partnership with Indiana-based Belterra Casino Resort, a riverboat casino on the Ohio River in Switzerland County, Indiana. Belterra Casino Resort has been a mainstay in the Indiana gambling scene since opening its doors in the state October 27, 2000.
More about the Betway brand
Betway brings with it plenty of experience running a top shelf online sportsbook. The company has been around since 2006 and is a major name in the European and African markets, particularly in the UK. It is because of that experience Betway has been able to create a visually appealing, easy-to-use, and safe platform for its users. One of its true strengths is the wide variety of sports that can be wagered on with Betway, from domestic to overseas options. Their betting menu rivals any in the Indiana market, eclipsing some offerings by other books in the business. Their wide array of bet types is also a strength of the sportsbook.
Bettors on the site will be welcomed by a pleasant, easy-to-navigate, fun and polished interface, both for desktop use and mobile customers and will be treated to some of the most competitive betting lines in the industry. Betway also has a reputation of quick payouts. Security, as an established global brand is also a strength of the Betway platform. Not only have they created a safe and reliable platform, but they have also passed all the regulatory hurdles in the 25+ jurisdictions they are live in – Indiana included.
On the downside, Betway’s promotions leave a little to be desired, considering the rash of competition they are up against in the Indiana market. Their risk-free bet, while appealing, doesn’t come close to figures up to $7500 tossed around by other sportsbooks in other markets around the country. A lack of horse racing options or eSports betting is another downside of the Betway platform.

It has all the offerings of their competition, and the site covers most, if not all the sports Indiana bettors would be inclined to wager on. It has become incumbent for sports betting providers to offer a wide array of possible sports wagering opportunities for bettors to take advantage of. A robust betting menu for Betway in Indiana is a good start.
Of note, the Indiana Pacers of the NBA, the Indianapolis Colts of the NFL, and the Indiana Fever of the WNBA are featured prominently in the Betway Indiana menu. Included on the list are:
- Football (NFL, NCAAF, Canadian)
- Horse Racing
- Motor Sports
- Soccer (TONS of leagues across the world)

Expect Betway’s Indiana sports betting menu to continue to grow as their US site develops.

Betway promotions in Indiana
Betway has not been scared to offer up their share of promotions and contests for their customers. Betway has their generic and special promotions that change often with the change of season. There are typical money-back offers, free-to-play games with prizes and an attractive early payouts policy. Two of the best features we found are:
- One-game parlay: This includes action on all major football, basketball or soccer games. Create your own single-game parlay for an upcoming game for an intense sweat. If you make a clean sweep, the payout will be generous.
- Betway Boosts: Nice feature that allows bettors to enhance their odds. Visit the boosts section in the sportsbook’s left-hand column where you will find all of the markets offering better than usual odds on a given day.
Special events such as the Super Bowl and NBA Playoffs will deliver more dedicated promotions for Betway clients. Cash-back offers, reload bonuses, and other risk-free bets are offered on a rotating basis. Be sure to check with the site’s promotions page often for updated offers.
Banking with Betway IN
Betway banking is serviceable. It could be better, but they still do offer all of the usual deposit and withdrawal options for Indiana bettors. It is quick and easy to deposit on the site. Of course, elite encryption services make all transactions totally safe.

Betway IN rewards program
In this day and age, it is nice for businesses to give back to their customers. Loyalty programs have become a big part of that goal and slowly, participating sportsbooks are getting on board with such incentives. Not all sportsbooks have loyalty or rewards programs… Betway technically does, but only in the UK for now. We fully expect a similar program to make its way to US markets sooner rather than later.
Extra perks in the UK for Betway customers come from its Betway Plus program which allows customers to earn points for every bet they place on the Betway site. The more bets you place, the more rewards you receive – simple. Accumulated Betway points can be redeemed for use of a dedicated account manager, birthday gifts, vacation packages, increased deposit limits, bigger promotional offers, faster withdrawals and more. Again, these are benefits we hope to see in Indiana before long.
Bet safely in Indiana
Betway, like all Indiana online sportsbooks, is committed to promoting safe betting practices. Responsible gaming is an essential focus for the legal betting industry. Simply click on the RG logo and be directed to information on how to set a budget, limit deposits, and set limits on bets.
