In this guide to Betway Sportsbook Virginia, we’ll get you started on the signup process, showcase some of the bookmaker’s best features, and assign an overall score to the operator based on five critical components of the platform.

Joining Betway Sportsbook in VA

You will also need to provide your cell phone number (to enable two-factor authentication when logging) and the last four digits of your Social Security number. This information is required by law, and you won’t be able to register without it.

These boxes will affirm the info you submitted is complete and correct, that you aren’t ineligible to bet on sports in Virginia because of your job or criminal history, and that you won’t allow other users to access your account. Additionally, you’ll have the chance to opt-in to promotional emails and communications, which are an excellent way to receive bonuses, including some exclusive offers that won’t be available to the general public.

Best sports leagues you can bet on using Betway

Betway has an impressive 19 sports available to bet on across its platform, with many top international and domestic leagues within those categories. Here are some of the best sports leagues you can bet on using Betway.

  • NFL: By an overwhelming margin, the NFL is the most popular league to bet on in the U.S. An estimated 73.5 million Americans placed a bet on NFL action during the 2023-24 season.
  • NBA: After the NFL, the NBA is second in betting popularity, with steady growth in betting handle each year. According to RotoWire, roughly 54% of U.S. bettors placed an NBA wager in October 2022, 10 percentage points ahead of the next closest league.
  • MLB: Bettors love Major League Baseball due in part to the lengthy 162-game regular season. Though Virginia doesn’t have an MLB team of its own, it is home to several minor league baseball teams.

Betway’s betting app in Virginia

Betway Sportsbook appears to be closing down its older betting platforms and combining the apps that previously were state-specific into one app to cover all states of operation. This process will allow bettors in Virginia to continue to play on the Betway app even while traveling out of state.

Reviews have been somewhat mixed thus far, with Apple users rating Betway a 2.7/5 and Android users rating a 3.7/5 in the respective app stores. Positive reviews mention that the app has an easy-to-use interface and is reasonable for beginners while negative reviews cited long payout times and geolocation difficulties.

You’ll find references to online casino betting in the name of the app. Online casino gambling is still prohibited under Virginia law, so this section of the Virginia betting app will be unavailable to you, but you’ll still be able to use most of the app’s features.

How to download the Betway app on iOS

Virginia bettors will likely enjoy their Betway app experience. Here’s how those with iOS devices can download the app today.

  1. Open the App Store on your iOS device. Make sure you’re logged in with your Apple ID and password.
  2. Search for “Betway - Live Sports Betting.”
  3. Press “Get,” then “Install.”

After the download is complete, you can create a new Betway account, make your first deposit, and place a wager to qualify for the welcome bonus!

How to download the Betway app on Android

You’ll find downloading the Betway app on your Android device to be the most fun and convenient way to place your wagers! Here’s how you can get the app now.

  1. Open the Google Play Store on your Android device.
  2. Search for “Betway Live Sports Betting App.”
  3. Press “Install” and wait for the download to run.
  4. Open the Betway app and log in with your account credentials (or create a new account).
  5. Make a deposit and place your bets!

Betway Virginia deposit and withdrawal methods

Betway Virginia does a reasonable job keeping up with competitors on their approved deposit and withdrawal methods list. Here are a few of the most popular options.

  • PayPal: A longtime online payment processing tool, PayPal is one of the most widely accepted payment methods among sports betting sites. It is very easy to use and doesn’t charge excessive fees for money management.
  • Venmo: Venmo is particularly popular among millennials and is a relatively new option to the sports betting industry. Betway was one of the earliest to implement the e-wallet option for both depositing betting funds and collecting sportsbook winnings.
  • VIP Preferred/E-check: Collecting your betting winnings with an e-check requires registering for a VIP Preferred account so the money can be sent directly to your bank. This method only works for withdrawals, countering the credit and debit card methods since those only allow you to make deposits.

Virginia state law prohibits wagers on in-state college teams, and without any “Big Four” teams that call Virginia home, local betting options are rather limited. However, there are still a few local angles to teams that you can gamble on using Betway.

  • Washington Commanders: The Washington Commanders’ home stadium is FedEx Field in Landover, MD. However the team’s offices are actually located in Ashburn.
  • Washington Capitals: Much like the Commanders’ setup, the Washington Capitals play their home games in D.C. but their practice facility, the MedStar Iceplex, is in Arlington.
  • Washington Nationals and Baltimore Orioles: Though both of these clubs compete in neighboring markets, they have minor league affiliates that call Virginia home: the Fredericksburg Nationals are the Single-A affiliate for Washington, and the Norfolk Tides are the AAA affiliate for the Orioles.

Customer support at Betway Sportsbook Virginia

However, if you’re looking for help with a more in-depth issue, you may need to try the support chat, which is available from 7AM to 11PM daily. You can also try to get in touch via phone from 10AM to 10PM each day, or through email (where you should allow 24 hours for a response).

Does Betway have any retail betting venues in Virginia?

No, Betway does not have any retail betting venues in Virginia. Betway operates in the U.S. in an online-only capacity, so players looking for an in-person betting experience are out of luck.

Our expert opinion on Betway Sportsbook Virginia

In our expert opinion, Betway Sportsbook Virginia is a reasonable option for straightforward bets when the odds are favorable, but you may be better served elsewhere when looking for live betting and same game parlay wagering. The platform is relatively simplistic, which makes it easy to find moneyline, spread, and over/under wagers, but other options are a bit more complex.

We do appreciate the wide selection of sports to choose from, as this is an area where Betway stands ahead of others in the Virginia market. The Betway Big Pick is an interesting way to play as well, giving players a free-to-play chance to make a series of picks to win a cash prize.

On the other hand, there are a few big concerns we’d like to see addressed. There is a lack of promotions on the platform and it can be hard to find where they are. Other than “Betway Boosts” which are listed on the log-in screen other offers are near-impossible to locate. We’d also like to see an expansion of customer service options to accommodate 24/7 support, as this is somewhat of an industry standard.

Our rating of Betway Sportsbook Virginia


Welcome bonus
Payment options
Sportsbook app
Variety & features
Customer support

VA Betting has given Betway Sportsbook Virginia an overall rating of 3 out of 5 stars. This rating is based on the following criteria:

  • Welcome Bonus - Rating 0/5: Betway does not currently offer a welcome bonus.
  • Payment options - Rating 4/5: Betway gets points here for including Venmo as a deposit and withdrawal option, but some of the other methods are rather limited.
  • Sportsbook app - Rating 3/5: The app is easier to use than the website, which is a good thing since the majority of sports bets are placed through an app. That said, we weren’t overly impressed, and app store reviewers held a similar opinion.
  • Variety & Features - Rating 3/5: There are 19 sports available to choose from with Betway Virginia, However, with limited promotions and a lack of live-streaming availability, Betway delivers an acceptable product but falls short in areas that would lead to a higher score here.
  • Customer Support - Rating 4/5: Customer support channels are expansive, but most lack 24/7 availability. This is a noticeable drawback.
