Some Important Points from the Betway T&Cs
It is in this section of our review that we turn our attention to the one of the more official aspects of a bookmaker: the T&Cs document. In the majority of cases, the main topics of the T&Cs don’t differ too much from bookmaker to bookmaker. Of course certain points such as the maximum payouts and the minimum stakes vary; for the most part however, you’ll often find that issues relating to liability, account opening and closure, confidential information and responsible gambling will almost always be included. Here we’ve selected a few of what we think are some of the most notable points from the document, and provided a few comments here and there where we feel as though we can add some more useful information. If you have any further queries or you think me might have missed something out, don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The T&Cs in Full
In the following section you’ll find the full list of the most up-to-date T&Cs exactly as they appear on the betting site itself, with some extra added notes from us where needed.
1. About Betway
2. Licensing and Regulatory Authority
3. Your Participation at Betway
3.1 “You may only participate at Betway if you are over 18 years of age. It is illegal to play at Betway if you are under 18 years old.”
Comment: Needless to say, it is a criminal offence for anyone under of 18 to take part in any kind of real money gambling activity. In order adhere to UK law, every bookmaker licensed by the Gambling Commission will have a number of systems in place to prevent minors accessing the site. Betway have a strict age verification policy in place that requires every member to provide valid documentation within 72 hours of making the first deposit to prove they are over 18 – otherwise the account will be frozen until this requirement has been met. If you’d like to enforce further age restrictions to your account, Betway have a number of tips and guidelines in the responsible gambling section of the website regarding internet filters, data protection and internet time management – you can also check out the main Betfred review page and refer to the security section for even more in-depth info.
4. Verification of Bank Details
5. Payment Details / Withdrawals
8. Responsible Gaming
4.4 “If you use a credit/debit card and/or a financial/bank account for transactions at Betway, the account/cardholder’s name MUST be the same as the name you used when registering a Betway account. Should the name you registered on the Betway account and the name that appears on your credit/debit card and/or financial/bank account differ in any way, your account will be immediately suspended. Should your account be suspended, we recommend you contact Customer Servicefor details regarding our verification process.”
Comment: This is again another pretty standard practice that many bookmakers have in place. They are all pretty hot when it comes to registering bank account details and identity verification. If you were thinking that you might be able to use your friend’s card to make a deposit when you’re running low on cash think again – any inconsistencies involving the name on your bank card will ultimately result in your account being suspended.
9. Player Protection
10. Intellectual Property
4.61 “Betway will consider an account to be inactive after a period of 12 months after the last account login. Applicable to Customers who are residents of Great Britain: an administration fee of 5.00 GBP will be deducted from a dormant / inactive account on a monthly basis until such a time as the account is no longer in credit, has become active once again, or has been inactive for a period exceeding 30 months. The first fee will be charged at the end of the 12th month after the last account login was recorded.”
Comment: Unfortunately, Betway aren’t the only bookmaker that apply charges to punters whose accounts have been inactive for a prolonged period. Although the charges and the time frame may vary, this is a pretty standard practice common to most of the betting sites we’ve covered in our reviews. In order to ensure you don’t accumulate any unwanted debts, make an effort to remember to close your account if you’ve been inactive for a long time, or if you feel as though you no longer require the bookmaker’s services.
