Dafabet is the biggest Asian bookmaker and here you will find not only the full pack of betting options we know from the entire world sport betting industry, but also additional extras like software-generated casino games, traditional casino games with a live dealer, as well as a poker room, Keno, virtual betting and many others.
This book was established back in 2004 year and it got its license in Philippines. The company has more than 1000 employees and millions of customers from all over the world. Even though most of these clients are based in an Asian country, yet, those from the rest of the world regions become more and more, including from places like Africa and Europe.
The bookmaker is well-known to football fans because of its wide sponsorship activity in British football – Dafabet is the official and main sponsor for many clubs, including Burnley, Sunderland, Blackburn and Celtic, as well as the official betting partner for the English champion from season 2015-2016 – Lester – and the Welsh football association. Besides on football, the bookies puts a serious focus on snooker, which can be seen both: from the wide range of the offered markets and events in this discipline, and from the sponsorship programs it arranges for the London’s Masters, which as you know is officially called Dafabet Masters and comes with a prize fund of 600 000 GBP.
It is a curious fact that regardless the significant relationships with the British sport, Great Britain is one of the countries the company does not allow customers from. It is because the lack of a local license to operate on the English market. Of course, English football has a very serious popularity among the entire planet, so the sponsorships we have mentioned are definitely neither a loss of time, or a pointless loss of financial resources.
Thankfully, Kenya isn’t among the countries whose citizens can’t bet in Dafabet. On the contrary – the bookmaker works hard on increasing the number of Kenyan punters and the results can be seen every single day. Moreover – the bookmaker has opened its first physical shop on Kenyan territory (to be more specific in Nairobi) in the beginning of 2017 year and few months later 10 more offices were also opened, which is more than a progress for the bookie’s progress and advance in this African country.
Besides the big number of sponsorship contracts with large teams and popular associations, the Asian bookie has also two very important and significant ambassadors. We are talking about the 6-time finalist in the World Snooker Championship and a winner of 10 titles from the ranking tournaments Jimmy White, as well as the ex-player of Real Madrid, Manchester City, Liverpool and the national English football team Steve McManaman. Specially for the website, McManaman offers his expert tips every week and for the top rated English football events during the upcoming week.

Besides the international website, this bookie also offers a specially tailored version for the Kenyan market. This version offers a page that is more of a basic type and with lower odds, but at the expense of this it provides more convenient options for a registration, deposit g and betting.

Yet, if you don’t find any problem or difficulty in making a deposit in any of the currencies from above, we strongly recommend you to do so in the international website version as betting options here are more preferable.
In Dafabet.com you can make football prognosis, as well as guesses on other sport disciplines from more than 100 different countries across the world. The list of the sport types includes all Kenyan audience’s favourites like football, basketball, volleyball, rugby, American football, ice hockey, snooker, handball, digital sport types.
Football bets include bets for a winner, correct score (FT and HT), total number of scores (FT and HT), First half / Final result, First and last score (FT and HT) and many others.
The long-term prognosis types aren’t few, either. Here, you can also invest your money in – for instance, currently bets for goal scorer and the winner of the upcoming World Football Championship in Russia are already available, even though the event is scheduled for the second half of 2018. Long-term bets are also available for the winner and the goal scorer in all the big European national championships and special tournaments like the Championship league, League of Europe, Premium league, A Series, Bundesliga, Premiera Division and many others. Long-term bets are also accepted for the fallen out teams, teams in the top 4 and many other similar charts. You can make long-term bets in other sport disciplines, too – for instance, in the NBA league and each of its division, the winner of NFL, the world championships in darts, rugby, snooker masters which we have already mentioned that is sponsored by Dafabet and many other different tournaments in digital sport types, too.
As a whole we can conclude that this bookie is one of the best one for long-term bets, but it is also a good bookie for the traditional bet types, too.
In the sport category you will also see bet types that aren’t linked to real sports at all. For instance, Number Game is such a type of sport where you get the chance to bet on the lottery traction and it is arranged randomly. If you think you have luck by your side today, don’t hesitate to try the company’s virtual bets, either. They also end up with a randomly chosen result, but they do offer much more excitement for the customers as the screen lets you watch the game simulation, too. This website is by all means with the riches selection of virtual sports among all the available bookies in Kenya. This selection also includes football, table tennis, hounds, darts, badminton, cycling, three types of horse racing and two types of moto sports.
Live betting and live streaming
We believe no one hesitates about the fact that Dafabet offers quite great options for live betting, too. However, what we want to put the focus on is the excellent level of this type of sport betting service. On the other side, live streaming the bookmaker provides is amazing, too.
The live service in Dafabet does not include hundreds of matches per day what many other bookies succeed to provide their audiences, but it does include a selection with some really interesting sport events that are worth it to be seen and bet on.
In football category, the selection includes A Series in Italy, the championships in Belgium, Scotland, Australia and the national English league, too. You will see some other sport types in this sphere – including leagues from NHL and NBA alongside with many other leagues from other disciplines with a main accent placed on volleyball and basketball. Have in mind that the most important and biggest leagues of these sports and basically in Europe are also covered by Dafabet live service.
The Asian bookies are popular with their high odds and Dafabet isn’t an exception in this rule.
The odds in this page are some of the best ones on the Kenyan market – the bookie isn’t the absolute leader as to the odds as you can find other bookmakers with similar or a bit higher odds. Yet, Dafabet is definitely above the middle level for the entire international marker and leave the local Kenyan bookies behind as to the odds they offer.
Even though Dafabet is mainly concentrated in providing great sport betting, it doesn’t mean the company’s team hasn’t invested any resources like time, money and attempts to make a great casino platform on their website, too. Yet, the games here aren’t that many, but they are all made by, probably, the biggest company in this sphere – Playtech, which is a guarantee for a very high quality. Playtech is a company which, as a matter of fact, doesn’t agree to work with any bookie, but only with those that are both: trustworthy and reputable, like Dafabet is.
Dafabet is accepted as one of the best places in the web for slot playing – especially when it comes to progressive jackpots. You will find more than 40 games like this in the website and the jackpots vary between €100,000 and more than €1,000,000. Alongside with them you will see dozens of other types of slot games without progressive jackpots, including 20 different table games (Baccarat, Blackjack, roulette and others), arcade games, video poker and many others. If you are a live dealer game fan, here at Dafabet website you will find around 20 24/7 possibilities to play.
Dafabet uses Playtech software for its poker room, which means the company is a member of iPoker net. The participation in this net means your competition will be punters from other bookies that are also listed in the net. And, on the other side, it means there will be always active tables for you to sit on and play against a lot of punters. Among them you will find tables with prize funds of more than 1 million of EUR.
Here, you have at your disposal modern poker options like Speed poker, Twister poker, Wild Twister and many others, too.
