Software and Accessibility
In order to play poker at Betway for the first time, and be eligible for the above mentioned welcome bonus you need to download their client. It’s fairly standard protocol to have to do this nowadays. The good news is once it’s downloaded and you have played through for the first time, you can achieve the bonus requirements, then use the instant play option from your browser if you prefer to do it that way. They also have an app for both IOS and Android. It’s not the best looking, but it functions ok.
Payment and Deposits
There aren’t too many options to choose from for payments, but the good news is that have most of the popular choices. Visa, Electron, PayPal, Skrill, Neteller and Paysafecard.
There is nowhere on the site that displays a telephone number or live chat option. There is, however, a support email address that is firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a huge drawback and really does put you off signing up. Although the website comes in 14-different languages, it does very little in terms of an FAQ or Help section either.
The last two points are really major drawbacks, with limited payments options and no obvious route to get help or support, it makes it easy to consider playing with a site where you know you can get swift customer support in case you need help in a hurry.
