Why is Betway illegal?
There are numerous reasons as to why it may be illegal to bet with Betway in your country of residence.
Firstly, many nations have not been quick to update and modernise their online gaming legislation. Many nations still operate under legislation composed over a decade ago. The good news is that many nations have recognised the popularity of online betting and are beginning to catch up.
My Country Isn't Listed. Can I bet with Betway?
Some nations call into a grey area when it comes to online betting. While it may not be explicitly legal, it is not exactly illegal either.
Once again, this grey area has been created by a legislative void in many countries. As a result, the legality of betting with bookmakers such as Betway is yet to be clarified.
Yes, it is certainly legal to bet with Betway in the United Kingdom. The main Betway UK site is designed specifically for UK customers. To learn more, please read our full Betway UK review.
Is it illegal to bet with Betway in France. Unfortunately we have to inform you that yes, Betway is illegal in France due to no Betway licence being held that permits wagering in France. This of course disappointing as we know how much our French readers enjoy betting, particularly on football.
It is legal to bet with Betway in Germany. While Germany is known for having rather restrictive gambling laws, we can inform your German readers that betting with Betway is legal in German. You can also claim a superb welcome bonus when you register with Betway from Germany.
It is legal to bet with Betway in Italy. In fact Betway has it's own site dedicated to Italian customers. How great is that? If you're in Italy and click through this link, you'll be taken directly to the Betway Italy site. Betting on some of the best football in the world, including Serie A and the Champions League is just a few clicks away for Betway Italian bettors.
Is Betway legal in India? While India is not on the list of nations where Betway is restricted, it is similarly not listed as a nation where Betway is legal. So what to do? Our recommendation would be to find an alternative bookmaker. If you're an Indian resident and enjoy betting on cricket, there are a number of options, with our recommendations being Ladbrokes and bet365.
As is the case for Indian cricket fans, Betway is not legal for Pakistan cricket fans either. Again, we would recommend finding alternative bookmaker to bet with. There are a number of options open to you if you are looking to bet from Pakistan, with our two suggestions being bet365 and BetVictor.
Is betting with Betway legal in Singapore? The clear answer to that question is no as there is no Betway licence to operate in this jurisdiction. Sorry to disappoint our readers in Singapore but Betway does not currently accept customers from Singapore.

Is it legal to bet using Betway in USA? No it is not legal to bet with Betway in the USA as there is currently no Betway licence to operate in the USA.
