From amateur leagues playing at suburban rinks to the crowning glory of the Olympic Gold Medal match, via some of the fiercest inter-city rivalries on the planet. For millions of fans around the world, hockey transcends mere sport to enter the realms of obsession. And when it comes to hockey betting, Betway Sports is as obsessed as the most passionate fan, committed to providing the very best in terms of choice, value and expertise for ice hockey betting, to make this most exciting of sports even more exciting.
Though precursors and similar sports date back into the mists of time and around the globe, it is generally agreed that Montreal is the spiritual home of ice hockey as we know it today. The first ever organised game took place there, at the Victoria Skating Rink in 1875, with the first ‘world championships’ held as part of the city’s winter carnival in 1883. Over 100 years later, there are now professional hockey leagues in dozens of countries across all six continents, including two women’s leagues, and international competitions that capture imaginations around the world. While the US/Canadian NHL grabs the headlines in the Western hemisphere, Russia too could argue that they are the dominant force in the world game, having won an unprecedented 27 World Championships (although their eight Olympic Gold medals numbers one fewer than Canada). But no matter where in the world it is, there when the puck drops, Betway will be there.
By virtue of being played on ice, much of the appeal of ice hockey lies in its speed and dynamism, so you need an hockey betting provider that’s fast and flexible enough keep up. By constantly monitoring our markets to ensure that you’re being offered the best price possible, Betway provides the confidence in value that allows you to concentrate on your hockey odds selections. And no matter whether you like to make those calls well in advance, or in-play, as the on-ice action unfolds, Betway has the hockey betting markets you need, offered through a platform that’s a joy to use no matter how you access it.
In terms of hockey odds, the Win/Draw/Win market should be the first port of call for those with a hunch as to which side’s going to be celebrating after a particular match, while our Correct Score 3-Way Handicap markets cater to those with a more exact idea of how the scoreboard will look at the end. Depending on the game in question, you may also find ice hockey betting markets that allow you to bet on such outcomes as whether both teams will score, whether the total of all goals will be odd or even, the winning margin and much more. And for a select few important matches, you will be given free rein to call get the you like, with #BetYourWay.

Major Tournaments and Hockey Events
For American and Canadian fans, the NHL is where it’s at in terms of ice hockey events, and the season-long battle for the coveted Stanley Cup attracts huge audiences. In the international sporting arena, the Winter Olympics Ice Hockey gold medal is probably the game’s most prestigious trophy, though the annual Ice Hockey World Championships and the World Cup of Hockey (established in 1992) allow for scores to be settled outside of Olympic competition. Whichever ice hockey event is dominating the sport’s agenda at the given moment, you’ll find it at Betway Sports.
