We are going to tell you more about this bookie in the upcoming lines by focusing your attention on everything that is important and interesting as to this company’s services and page.
Website and mobile version
helabet.com can brag about one really fast and modern website which, in our opinion, is one of the best among all the available Kenyan bookies these days. The main shade in the colour scheme used in the page is the purple shade and this is definitely a not that typical nuance for a bookie. Yet, this purple design is by all means quite eye-catching and interesting, no doubts. The navigation is made to be convenient enough for the audience and the surfing among the website is an easy and pleasant task, while the website, itself, loads quickly, so you aren’t going to wait for any service or menu category to appear.
m.helabet.com provides great mobile betting options, too. You can use the company’s services from almost any model or type of a smartphone and the Android users are offered with a specially tailored application. Both – the application and the website mobile version follow the same colour scheme with the same main purple shade, as well as with the same convenient and easy to be used navigation.
The company team is fully aware of the fact that most of Kenyan people today rely on their mobile devices, when it comes to betting, which is why the bookie has made everything possible to keep the available desktop functions available on the mobile options for bets, too. In other words, on your smartphone or tablet you can do everything you can do on your desktop device (including live betting or placing bets on virtual sports), as well as to register, make deposits, take the benefits of all the company’s games and promotions.

You are going to dive in a large abundance of thousands of different sport events from dozens of different sport disciplines the bookie receives bets on once you enter the Sports category from the main website menu.
You can bet on more than 25 different sport disciplines here at helabet, including: football, tennis, basketball, ice hockey, boxing, MMA, American sports and many others. No matter when you visit the website it will offer you more than 1000 different sport events to place a bet on and the total amount of betting options can reach several thousands.
Like in most of today’s bookies, here more than half of the offered events and markets are devoted to the football. The bookmaker’s program represents more than 100 different leagues, including the most favourite ones to the Kenyan audience – for instance the national Kenyan league, the Championship League, the English Premium league and etc.
We can be also fully satisfied by the markets we have at our disposal as to each single football event. The number of the bet types, of course, depends on the significance of each event and the matches from the leading European leagues come with about 200 different markets to choose from. In the sake of the audience’s convenience, the different options are gathered in several categories:
- Half times
- Goal scorers
Hela5 Kenya is quite impressive in the other sport type categories, too. The bookie has one of the riches sport programs we have ever seen as to the basketball, ice hockey, MMA and boxing bets. All of these sport disciplines come with a similar abundance of markets – like in the football category – and the betting options in basketball sections reach a number of 50, while those in ice hockey are more than 120.
In the sport betting section you will also meet many different markets that, as a matter of fact, have nothing to do with sports. For instance, such markets are in the Politics category, where you meet the chance to guess the final outcome in political elections, as well as those in the TV programs and movies or Special bets categories.
More than 200 different events per day are offered in the live betting interactive platform on Helabet website. They are mainly from football, tennis, basketball, ice hockey, MMA, American football, cricket and darts categories.
Live bets, in general, aren’t that different from those make on pre-matches. The live bets have one serious strong point, though – Hela bet Kenya offers you statistics in real time and it helps you to make your final guess. The statistics, on the other side, shows you how dangerous the attacks both team have made up to the current moment are, how many attempts each team has made, which of these attempts are successful, the number of corners or the cards every of the teams received.
The bookie offers two ways to follow the event live:
- Animation in real time that shows you which team possesses the ball and at what phase every single thing like attach, out, corner, card happened. Such an animation is provided from more of the available events.
- Live streaming – All the registered customers are offered with the possibility to watch a significant part of the events in real time, but this service isn’t that popular yet. However, hundreds of matches are streamed live every single month.
The odds in this bookmaker cannot reach the level of the odds from the best bookies in the world, but, yet, they are quite better than the odds of most of today’s bookies in Kenya. The difference with the best world bookmakers, though, isn’t that big and usually, the ordinary and not professional punters which bet for pleasure will not even notice this difference. On the other side, because of the difference in the bookies’ expectations (for each final outcome in any market) it is often for them to make HelaBet odds better than those in the most popular bookies today.
Unfortunately, there is no helabet bonus for new customers. Neither are any other bonus types. Yet, at the expense of these, a game with prognoses with free participation and real awards where you can win up to 5 000 KES is provided. You can take place in it after showing some good football betting skills.
Every day, the bookie publishes three lists with football matches among which one contains 6 matches, the second one – 8 and the last one – 10. If you succeed in guessing the final outcome (1 X 2) in all the matches from the first list you will win 1 000 KES and if you guess all the matches from the second list with 8 matches – 3 000 KES. Last, but not least, if you guess all the 10 matches from the third list you will be rewarded with 5 000 KES.
The newest Hela Bet Kenya category is the virtual betting category. Here, you can place bets on sports that are computerized and digitally stimulated – football, tennis, hounds, horse racing, automobile sports and cycling.
The games are developed by the software company BetConstruct, but we cannot say that they are on that high level in comparison to the high standards of the virtual sports in other bookies – the games in this Kenyan bookmaker are definitely not that high quality as to the graphics or reality factor.
Yet, it is justified to mention that the virtual betting is the newest Hela Bet category and it will definitely get some updates to get better and better with time.
The bookie offers basic financial trading options, too. Here you need to place a bet as to the margin of some currency value (in comparison to other currency) within next 60 seconds. The website provides detailed statistics in this category, too, and they follow the margin of the last 12 months.
