Like other betting sites, Betway online has its terms and conditions. Breaching these terms can lead to the suspension or closure of your account. You should go through the terms before creating an account on the site. Let’s look at the reasons for putting a Betway account on hold.

Unlock betway account


#1 Underage Gambling

Legal age at Betway

One of the biggest rules on Betway is that all members must be of legal gambling age. The site has set this age at 18 years old or more. So if you are underage your account will first be put on hold, then suspended and eventually deleted. If, however, there is some misunderstanding, you can rectify the situation.

Solution

You will have to prove your age by sending your ID card otherwise Betway suspended account will be a fact. This card must be issued by the government. Make sure you upload this document on the verification page of your account.

Example

When I created my Betway account, I took a photo of my ID card. The front and back had to be clearly seen. I then navigated to the verification page where I uploaded the photo, along with other verification documents.


#2 More than One Betway Account

You can create multiple accounts on separate betting sites. However, you can’t create many accounts on a single website like Betway. No duplicate accounts are permitted. Nor people using the same IP, email, etc. This would be a breach of the terms of the site. Bettors usually create new accounts when they forget their passwords. Other people simply want to claim the welcome offer again.

Solution

Don’t make more than 1 betway account. If you forgot your password, you should simply recover it via SMS or email. You can’t claim the welcome offer twice, even if you use the details of close family members. Instead, you should use bonuses for existing customers.

Example

To recover my password, I click the ‘Forgot Password’ button on the login page. Then I add my phone number. The sportsbook then sends the new password to my phone.


#3 Using VPN for IP Change & Access to Betway

VPN for Betway

Customers of Betway may use VPNs if they travel to countries where Betway isn’t accepted. Some people may also simply use VPNs if they live in countries that are banned from Betway. These tools are also used to enhance security when using online betting sites.

Solution

If you live in a country that is banned from Betway, you should simply use an alternative betting site. It is also advisable to avoid using Betway when travelling. For security, you can use firewalls or antivirus software.

Example

You can use Google to search for the best betting sites in your country of residence. If you want to promote the security of your account, you should turn on Microsoft Defender. Some great antiviruses you can use are McAfee and Kaspersky.


#4 Incorrect Signup or Login Information

Betwat reasons for suspended account

Your suspended account may come about because of the use of incorrect Betway signup or login info. Using the wrong login details multiple times can make it seem like you are a hacker. This can lead to the suspension of your account.

Solution

Make sure you add your real name, real ID number, and correct phone number on the signup page. If you aren’t certain about your login info, you should reset your password.

Example

To reset the password, you should enter your phone number on the Password Reset page. You will have to verify your signup details by sending documents like your ID card and utility bills.


#5 Breach of Betway’s T&Cs

Betway terms

Many people sign up on Betway without reading the terms and conditions of the site. This makes it easy to breach some of the T’s and C’s. You should read them so as to know what you can and cannot do. Breaching rules will ultimately result in your account being suspended indefinitely.

Solution

You can access the terms of the site using the link at the bottom of the page. Try to go through these terms to determine whether there is anything you don’t agree with. In this case, you can abandon the site and sign up for an alternative sportsbook.

Example

Before you finish creating your account, you should go through the terms of the site. For example, you should avoid using VPNs as the site doesn’t accept the use of such tools.


#6 Suspicion of Betway Bonus Abuse

Bonus abuse

Betway offers many bonuses and promos. There are certain rules you must follow when using these offers. Many people abuse the bonuses on this site because they aren’t aware of the rules. Usually, the site will investigate the use of the bonus before you make a withdrawal. That means you may not know when you are breaching the bonus terms.

Solution

Bonus abuse occurs in many ways. For example, you shouldn’t engage in hedge betting or low-margin betting. You also need to avoid spending more than 30% of the value of the bonus on single bets.

Example

If you have a €10 bonus, you shouldn’t use the offer to bet on both sides of a match. You also shouldn’t use more than €3 on a single wager.


#7 Too Many Withdrawals – Suspicion of Money Laundering

Betway will also lock or limit your account if you make withdrawals frequently. Customers usually do this because of the thrill of getting funds in their accounts. Others simply want to control their urge to place more bets. This behaviour (too many and too often withdrawals) makes it seem like you are engaged in money laundering hence your Betway suspended account. It will remain on hold until the security check is over.

Solution

You can use the responsible gambling features of this site to control your betting behaviour. This will reduce the need to take money out of your account.

Example

If I feel like I am spending too much money or time on betting, I exclude myself for a period. I have also set deposit limits.

    My account withdrawal info was changed to someone else's in early December, non of your staff assisted even by reversing the withdrawal which was locked. I suspect it was an inside job, I before that was doing well until I noticed money was disappearing. Sharing my info has never been my portion, so there is no such a thing as fairness, it's just that we somehow are desperate for money.
