M-Bet is a Kenyan bookie with a modern design. It is wide-spread across social webs – the company has Facebook, Twitter and YouTube accounts with more thousands of customers there which is an evidence for this bookmaker’s popularity across Kenyan audience.
This is also one of the few sports betting websites that owns a Swahili version, the second official language in Kenya. Meanwhile, most of today’s Kenyan bookmakers have only an English version. Of course, MBet might be used in English, too, but it is a great thing that they can choose between English and a Swahili version.
Similar to some other Kenyan bookies M-Bet has also its own lottery games jackpot that is named Perfect 12. Participating in this game can bring you up to 900 000 Ksh with a bet of 50 Ksh only if you guess the final result (1X2) of 12 football matches. This game is organized every single day and the 12 matches are determined in the morning by the company’s team.
The website provides one more privilege to its customers, like the chance to participate in a lottery with a smartphone as a prize. Here, all newly registered punters can participate. In other words, you can try your luck in this game only when you have just made a registration at M-Bet website. On the other side, the company has made a mobile app for Android devices and you know that most African bookies cannot brag about such an extra. The application is fully free for downloading and using it is quite funny because of its bunch of various functions and awesome design. M-Bet is also one of the few African betting websites with an implemented live chat in their platforms. These chats let customers communicate with the company’s employees in order to get fast and correct answers to all of their questions regarding either sports betting, or the usage of the website and the application.
So far with the benefits, because now it’s time to point out some of the weak points M-Bet is popular about. The main bookie’s disadvantage is the highly limited sports betting possibilities. M Bet offers only football bets and if you want to bet on other sport disciplines this is isn’t your bookie, no doubt. The offered football matches for betting aren’t that many, either. They are bets for:
- The winner
- Double chance
- Winner from first half
- Winner from second half
- Over/Under 2.5 scores
- Over/Under 1.5 scores for the first half
- Over/Under 1.5 scores for the second half
- Both teams to score 1 goal
- Both teams to score 1 goal during the second half
- Even or uneven number of scores
The variety of sports events isn’t big, either – the website provides nearly 50 matches per day and most of them are from European leagues. American matches are rarely seen and matches from African leagues are extremely rare.
The good thing is that till the bookie does not offer odds for too many matches and markets these odds are quite good and even above the average odds in Kenyan market. Yet, bets from M-Bet cannot beat those from the best European bookies.
