Before you can convert your betting skills into cash, you need to make your first deposit into your newly created Betworld account. The bookie offers most of the established payment options.

More experienced punters will probably notice that the menu navigation bears a strong resemblance to the bookie Interwetten, and rightly so, since Betworld is indeed a subsidiary of this renowned bookmaker. Only in terms of visual appearance, the Betworld website diverges from the Interwetten design as the content at betworld.com is mainly arranged in shades of blue. Betworld provides a solid offer in terms of sports betting and casino gaming. As far as the sportsbook is concerned, the bookie offers standard as well as in-play betting, and the risk-takers among you will surely appreciate the great variety of casino games.
Overall, the main navigation bar includes all the sections as mentioned above (i.e. sportsbook, live betting, casino, and live casino) and makes it fairly easy to navigate through the site’s content. Our focus, however, will be on anything related to sports betting.
By clicking on the sportsbook button in the main navigation bar, you get straight to the bookie’s extensive sports betting offers. On the left-hand side, you can find another navigation bar which provides an overview of the different kinds of sports offered at Betworld. In the left navigation bar, the most popular leagues are located at the top which is a nice feature since it saves you a few clicks. The sportsbook includes a great variety of different kinds of sports from mainstream sports such as football (soccer), tennis, basketball, and ice hockey to fringe sports (no offense!) such as darts, snooker, or rugby. Overall, the bookie offers bets for a total of 26 different sports, and further provides bets in politics and entertainment.
As far as we, as reviewers, are concerned, Betworld have perfectly accomplished the task of offering a good sportsbook. The betting slip, which is located on the right-hand side of the main navigation bar, is easy to operate and very similar to the betting slip at Interwetten. Just by clicking on the odds, the bet will appear on the betting slip right away, and you can decide whether you want to place multiple bets as singles, doubles or system bets.
Betworld offers its services in no less than 11 different languages. Besides English and German, the site is also available in Spanish, Italian, Turkish, French, Portuguese, Polish, Czech, Greek, and Croatian.
Betworld provides punters with a variety of betting options for each of their numerous games in all sorts of sports and leagues. For matches in the Barclays Premier League, for instance, we have found as many as 69 different betting options per individual match, which is a solid number compared to other bookies. Besides the usual three-way, handicap, and result bets, Betworld also offers options such as double chance and halftime/final bets as well as various team specials. Overall, the betting options at betworld.com mainly cater to hobby and novice punters.
Keeping in mind that Betworld is a fairly young competitor in the sports betting industry, the in-play offer is quite decent, but not excellent. The bookie’s statistics feature, however, is definitely a big plus. The feature itself is quite similar to the one provided by Interwetten, so we were not really surprised to see that it’s working well (you might want to have a look at our review of Interwetten sportsbook to get a more detailed insight into their stats features). This tool is a great means to help you analyse a game in play and to place your bets the right way.
In addition to the sportsbook, customers at Betworld can also enjoy a variety of casino games.
Everything you need to know about cashing out
Once you have managed to reap profits, and your account balance shows a big plus, you will probably want to cash out. At Betworld.com, the withdrawal procedure is quite similar to that of other bookmakers. Firstly, you need to verify your account by means of a photo ID which can be done by uploading a scan of your driving license, for instance. Any other government-issued IDs like passports will be fine as well. Once the verification has been completed, you can proceed with cashing out.
Due to the manifold payment options for depositing, one might assume that Betworld also offers a similar variety for withdrawal options. However, this is not the case. Unfortunately, the only withdrawal options available at Betworld are bank transfer or eWallet services such as Neteller or Ecopayz. Furthmore, the minimum withdrawal limit is at 30 € which is quite high compared to other bookies.
Overall, Betworld does not leave much to be desired. Profiting from the know-how of the parent company, the Interwetten subsidiary scores high in terms of usability and as far as the scope of the sportsbook as well as the odds offered are concerned, the bookie definitely convinced us of its qualities. With a total of 26 different kinds of sports available, Betworld can easily compete with the big players in the market. However, the rather narrow range of betting options per game and the limited withdrawal options leave some room for improvement. Overall, we can fully recommend Betworld, especially to beginners and hobby bettors, and we expect this “young” bookie to stick around for a while.
