Odds - Average

We calculated the margin for BetPawa by analyzing the odds they offer and placed them into one of the following three categories:

From 1% to 5%: Good value

Over 5% to 7%: Average value

Over 7% to 10%: Poor value


We got our results by taking the "Match result" odds and also the over/under 2.5 goals odds for different matches in different football leagues. Getting the average results using this method, we were able to obtain the margins for each league and the overall betting margin for the bookmaker.

BetPawa has an overall average margin of 5.74% for football and falls in the average category. In the first section with Premier League and Championship, the margin is at 5.47%. The second section with Spanish La Liga and Italian Seria A, the margin is at 5.48%. Finally, taking the Australian A-League, Turkish Super Lig and Netherlands Eredivisie into account, the margin is at 6.28%.

Range of Sports and Markets - Poor

Range of Sports: Currently, on the platform of betPawa there are only three sports you can choose for betting - Football, Tennis and Basketball.

Range of Bets and Markets: One of the bad things on the website of betPawa is the depth of the betting markets. Even for the high profile leagues like La Liga, English Premier League and Bundesliga, you will not see more than 70-80 betting options. These stats are pretty low compared to the other competitive brands in the industry. Still, the most popular and famous markets are available such as 1X2, Over/Under, Double Chance and Asian Handicap.

Betting Limits: There are not so big betting limits but you can increase them by playing regularly on the website of betPawa. If some of your bets are not accepted because of some account restrictions, you should contact the outstanding customer support.

In-Play Betting - Poor

Lots of users prefer betting on in-play events, though this is not among the strongest features of betPawa. We can honestly write that there is a big need for improvement because the sections are very poor.

First of all, there are not that many sports events which are happening in real-time. Second, he betting times and limits are extremely poor. You will need to wait for more than 10 seconds for your bet to be confirmed. Third, there are not so many betting markets as even for the EPL events, you will have available less than 80 options to place your bets.

Last, you cannot watch your most favourite teams because the live stream option is unavailable. There is only one small graphic where you can follow the scores and the most important events.

actually my slip has been open since yesterday yet i won my money, i cant even withdraw it
