Betway adds Horse Racing to Their Repertoire of Sports

Betway is a relatively newer member of a host of sports betting sites that are available in the UK. Started out in 2006, Betway has so far managed to stay true to their promise of being a complete package of sports betting and online casino games.

Betway uses Microgaming for most of their currently available games. A few live games were recently tried out using NetEnt platform, as well. However, the biggest attraction at Betway has always been their advanced user-centric sports betting facilities.

The sports covered so far at Betway included most of English football leagues including the Premier League; county cricket; rugby and tennis.

However, in a recent release, the company has announced that they have secured official betting ties with a number of major and minor racing championships in the UK.

The UK sports betting is primarily dominated by the big three betting companies in Ladbrokes, PaddyPower and Bet365. These racing deals are widely seen as an effort from Betway to further strengthen their grip on the remainder of the UK sports betting scene. This rings true especially in the context that Betway managed to secure the Queen Mother Champion Chase for three years straight, starting from 2014.

Alan Elgar of Betway, in an enthusiastic response, exclaimed that Betway was ‘thrilled’ to be a part of the UK racing sports –especially some of the courses that have a historic standing in the UK racing and sports culture.

Everything put together, Betway has £1 million, or thereabouts, already pledged as the prize money for various racing events and more would definitely be added to that once the pending contracts with some major races go through to completion.
