Betway Mozambique Review

We’re excited to bring you the news that Betway has gone live in Mozambique, taking their total number of markets to seven on the African continent. Live in Mozambique? Register a new account and get up to 5 000 MT in bonus cash with your first deposit!

Although Betway was well-established in Europe before coming to South Africa in 2017, it’s quite some feat that just three years later they are a dominant force in Africa. Betway replicated their success in South Africa when they expanded operations to Kenya, Ghana, Uganda, Nigeria and Zambia. And now Mozambique is the latest country in their portfolio, which makes a lot of sense when you consider how few betting options are available in this remote coastal nation of Southern Africa.

In this review, we’ll take a look at the different products available to Betway customers from Mozambique, highlight some of the pros and cons of the site plus give you the low down on Bonuses, Promotions, Banking and Unique Features. This article also serves as a handy guide for new players with easy instructions for signing up with Betway, making a deposit, placing your first bet and more!

Is It Safe To Play From Mozambique?

Betway is licensed and regulated by the Betting Control and Licensing Board of Mozambique which requires the operator to maintain a strict level of privacy and security to ensure that personal and financial player information is both encrypted and protected. 

Betway Mozambique – User Experience

Perhaps most important to know is the site features both English and Portuguese language options. If you would prefer to navigate the site in English, we suggest that instead of letting your browser translate, that you select the English language option within the site itself. To do this, go to the bottom right of the Betway homepage. Click the drop-down menu that says ‘Portuguese’ and change the language to English. Alternatively, use this link to go straight to the English version of the site.

While the products are ready to use, we’re a little disappointed that the Betway Mozambique site is still a little glitchy with some areas not yet fully functional, but we’re confident the issues will be ironed in good time. That said, these small concerns around web development are easy to overcome, and while on the site, players are guaranteed a safe and regulated environment to place their bets. 

How To Sign Up With Betway Mozambique

To register an account all that is required is some basic information as well as a username and password to protect it.

How To Verify Your Betway Account

For withdrawals more than 90 000 MT, your Betway account must be verified before the funds will be released. In these instances, you will receive an email detailing the necessary documents required if your account has not yet been verified.

Our Verdict

While it’s great that Betway has expanded its reach to Mozambique, we can’t say that we’re overly impressed with what we’ve seen at this early stage. The pre-match and live sports offering is excellent but in just about every other department Betway Mozambique falls short when compared to their products available in other countries.

However, it’s highly likely that some of Betway’s product decisions may be market related with no way around them. We are confident that in good time, Betway will give customers in Mozambique the best possible user experience within the confines of local betting regulations and the law. So, hang in there!
