2. Identity Checks

We take stringent steps to ensure that only people of legal age participate and enter Betway. Such checks may include requesting the Customer to submit a copy of a photographic identification documents (such as a driver's licence, a passport or a government issued identity card), in order to verify both age and identity.

The legal age for gambling online varies from country to country and so we advise that you check the rules of your jurisdiction before you play.

An Electronic Age Verification Check will be performed upon registration of an account with Betway. For further details, please refer to our Age Verification Policy.

Any personal details we request from you during the verification process are purely to verify your identity – this is a legal requirement for both your own and our protection. If you have any questions about our identity checks, please do not hesitate to contact Customer Service at any time.

3. Staying in Control

Betway encourages each of its Customers to actively participate in the management of their gambling account and so offers a variety of Safer Gambling features.

Should Betway feel that gambling may not be safe for you they reserve the right to limit or suspend your account. Upon suspension of your account/s held with Betway Limited, any remaining funds held in account balances will be returned – subject to our Terms.

While Betway endeavours to honour all bets placed by customers, in the event that it is established that your account/s should be suspended for Safer Gambling reasons, Betway reserves the right to void any bets placed after a decision is taken.
