After establishing itself in the global sports betting industry, Betway Sportsbook has quickly become a mainstay for United States bettors as well. They have one of the largest selections of betting markets in the industry, along with several appealing promotions both for new and existing users. At the time of writing, Betway is operational in nine states across the country. Kentucky is the latest state set to fully legalize sports gambling.

Although it’s still unclear when Betway will launch in KY now that sportsbooks began opening in the state in September 2023, it’ll more than likely look to get KY licensing sooner rather than later. In this Betway Kentucky overview, we’re going to go over everything users need to know before signing up for the betting operator. From their welcome bonus to the wealth of betting markets Betway has on hand, we’ll tackle all of it here.

Is Betway Sportsbook live in Kentucky?

No, Betway Sportsbook is not legal in Kentucky. Betway has not announced its plans for Kentucky just yet, but with sports betting already live for KY residents, we may get a clearer picture of the plans for their Kentucky sportsbook in the state within the next few months.

What kind of welcome offer will Betway offer when they go live in Kentucky?

Betway’s welcome bonus will be pretty standard within the Kentucky sports betting ecosystem. The Betway welcome bonus is bet $10 to earn up to $250 in bonus funds. To qualify, users must opt-in to the welcome offer on the promotions screen, deposit at least $10 into their account, and place a qualifying bet with odds of at least -300.

If the first bet loses, users will be issued a bonus bet in the amount wagered, up to $250. New users must claim the welcome bonus within seven days of registration. Players do not need to enter a promo code to be eligible for Betway’s welcome offer.

Signing up to Betway in Kentucky and claiming their promo

Once Betway arrives in Kentucky, signing up for the sportsbooks and claiming their welcome offer should be priority number one. Fortunately, users will not need a promo code to opt-in to the Betway welcome bonus. After registering, all players have to do is opt-in on the “Promotions” section of the Betway website and they will become eligible. Here’s how to get started.

  1. First, head to Betway’s website or mobile app to sign up. In the top-right corner you’ll see a green “Join Now” button; hit it to get the registration process underway.
  2. On the first screen, enter your email address and a suitable password for the account. You’ll also have to confirm you have read through the site’s terms and conditions before continuing.
  3. After reaching the next page, you will be prompted to provide some personal information. This will include your full legal name, phone number, date of birth, and the last four digits of your Social Security number. At the bottom of the page, you’ll need to enter your current street address as well. After providing all the required information, hit “Submit.”
  4. Once the account has been verified, head to the “Promotions & Features” tab at the top of Betway’s website. The welcome bonus should be the first promotion that appears.

Read through the terms and conditions and hit the “Bet Now” button attached to the promo to officially opt in.

Different types of bets on Betway Sportsbook

Along with their promotions for new and existing players, Betway also has several interesting bet types for bettors to take advantage of to spice up their betting experience. Here’s a look at some of the most common bet types offered by Betway.

  • Live Betting: Betway typically has a vast selection of live betting options, thanks to its wealth of betting markets. The live betting feature allows users to put their skills to the test by placing in-game wagers on the most popular sporting events happening at the current moment. Odds will fluctuate as games progress and users will be able to place bets on them at any point during the contest.
  • Early Cash-Out: The early cash-out feature has become a staple in modern sports betting and Betway provides it as well. It allows users to limit their losses by cashing out before the end of a game they’ve bet on. Users will be able to take their cash out at any time during a game, either in full or just partially.
  • Parlay Bonus: Through Betway’s Parlay Club promotion, users will have the opportunity to win a $10 bonus bet after placing a $25 three-leg parlay with combined minimum odds of +200.

According to the terms and conditions tied to Betway’s welcome bonus, the bonus funds should be credited to a user’s account within 24 hours of the qualifying bet being settled. The bonus bets must be used within seven days of issuance.

Best sports leagues you will be able to bet on using Betway Kentucky

There will be no shortage of betting markets for Betway Kentucky users. With over 20 sports to wager on, there’s truly something for everyone at Betway. Here’s where we envision most of the betting action to take place in Kentucky once Betway sets up shop there.

  • Football: Football is, and probably always will be, the king of the sports betting world in the United States. Even though Kentucky does not have any NFL teams, we still expect the majority of the betting action to revolve around football in KY. The closest NFL teams to the state can be found in neighboring Ohio, where the Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns play. In the collegiate ranks, KY bettors will have the Louisville Cardinals, along with the Kentucky Wildcats to wager on.
  • Basketball: Kentucky does not have any NBA teams within its state lines, but there are still a few teams worth mentioning in neighboring states. We have the Cleveland Cavaliers up north in Ohio, with the New Orleans Pelicans down south in Louisiana. Kentucky also has one of the biggest collegiate basketball programs in the country with the Kentucky Wildcats.
  • Baseball: No MLB teams are housed in Kentucky, with the closest one being the Cincinnati Reds up in Ohio.
  • Hockey: Once again, Kentucky does not have any in-state NHL teams. Most KY hockey fans root for the Nashville Predators, who play their home games in neighboring Tennessee. There are, however, a few collegiate men’s ice hockey teams worth mentioning, like the Louisville and Kentucky squads.
