Overall Author’s Opinion About Betway
In my opinion, Betway is one of the best online wagering platforms in Zambia. It is licensed to operate within Zambia's borders under the Ministry of Finance and Tourism hence there is no risk while betting with the platform. I find the sportsbook has more advantages than disadvantages such as live betting on different sports betting options and live streaming on selected events. I think the collection of sports betting options at Betway is one of the best in the country with more than 20 sports available with multiple markets from leagues all across the world available for punters to choose from.
The sportsbook is very reliable as it employs the latest technology to protect punters' data from third parties. I also find the Betway welcome offer attractive to new punters and their instant deposits and withdrawals help if one wishes to wager on a game happening in a few minutes and has to make a deposit to bet. However, the bookmaker has limited deposit and withdrawal methods which I think they can improve on and add more payment methods to the sportsbook. Overall, Betpawa Zambia is an excellent online wagering platform.
Betway Zambia betting site has a lot of offers available for both new and existing punters. There is a welcome bonus available for new punters joining the sportsbook. There is also a promotion to win a brand new car when you place a wager from the Beat the Odds page when you top the overall leaderboard in points at the end of the season. This offer includes weekly free wagers and cash prizes to be won. When a punter deposits at Betway Zambia using Mobile money, he/she stands a chance to win a part of K200,000 weekly. There are also mobile money deposit prizes, tennis bonus, and double payouts at the sportsbook. However, the sportsbook lacks a loyalty program for punters.
Betway Zambia welcomes new punters joining the sportsbook with a 50% initial deposit bonus up to K1,000 which comes in form of a free wager. All you need to do to qualify for this offer is create a new Betway account and make your first deposit. You are also required to place wagers equal to three times your initial deposit amount at odds of at least 3. Once you meet these requirements, the free wager is immediately credited to your Betway account.
Overall Author’s Opinion About Betway Bonus Program
I think Betway Zambia has a very impressive bonus catalog for both new and existing punters across different sports provided by the betting site. New punters joining the sportsbook can receive a 50% first deposit bonus in form of a free wager when a new punter creates an account and makes his first deposit. New punters are required to place eagers that are 3X the initial deposit amount on minimum odds of 3 after which the free wager is credited instantly to your Betway account. There is also an Australian open offer whereby punters who place bets on the tournament with a minimum of K20 will be entered into a draw for an opportunity to win K300,000 in prizes. I think the bonus section is excellent since Betway updates its offers as different tournaments come up throughout the year such as this year's Australian Open. There is also another offer on the Betway SA20 cricket league with cash prizes and free wagers for winners. Their offer on Mobile money deposits is also very attractive in my opinion as it encourages punters to keep depositing and playing at the sportsbook to win K200,000 in prizes weekly. You also can earn points with every wager you place at the Beat the Odds section to be in contention to win a brand new Renault Kwid car, cash prizes, and free wagers at the end of the season. In conclusion, I am really impressed by the bonuses provided by Betway Zambia.

Overall Author’s Opinion About Betway Features
I am really impressed by the features available at the Betway Zambia sportsbook as they are unique in the Zambia online betting scene. The Build a bet feature is quite smart in my view as it helps punters to place different bets on the same selection. This simply means that if it is a soccer match between Liverpool and Chelsea, using the Build a bet feature can enable you to place a wager on over 2.5 goals and both teams to score in the same fixture. I also find the Betway cash-out tool to be amazing as you can trade out before your wager even becomes active(pre-match cash out), or reduce your losses if you are worried about how your bet will turn out once it's settled. The Jackpot section at Betway Zambia was the most exciting bit for me as the sportsbook has provided several jackpots including the biggest jackpot in Zambia with a prize of K36,500,000, with bonuses available for punters with the most correct predictions. In addition to in-play wagering and live streaming at the betting site, I think Betway Zambia is among the best betting platforms in the country.
