Betin Kenya Review: Our opinion on bonuses, app, odds, and more
This comprehensive Betin Kenya review places the operator under the microscope and sees how it scores against 7 different areas, ranging from the welcome offers and available sports markets to the live streaming and betting options, funding methods, and customer service. The table below gives a brief overview of how the bookmaker has performed in each area.
|Betin Kenya Review Areas||Our rating|
|Welcome offer||50% first deposit Karibu bonus up to Ksh 5,000|
Welcome bonuses – 3
Currently, the operator offers a 50% Karibu welcome bonus to new players up to KES 5,000, which is in line with the industry average. If this Betin Kenya review rated the bookmaker only based on its welcome offer, the rating would be quite high. However, given the lack of other promos at a time when other bookies offer a broad spectrum of new player offers, including VIP programmes that reward their most loyal ones, Betin Kenya rating cannot be higher than 3/5.
Betting markets / available sports – 5
Betin Kenya offers more than 25 sports, from American football and basketball to soccer, rugby, boxing, cricket, Formula 1, snooker, bandy, and darts. It also offers special betting markets, such as Politics.
Players get from the common multi goal, half time score, final score and 3 way first up to handicap, first half under/over and a plethora of alternative markets, especially at football betting, like Away Win to Nil, First/last goal, and combos. At the same time, Kenya punters will find several goalscorer and outright bets, as well as a wide variety of tennis bets, such as tie break, alternative handicaps, and totals.
In a nutshell, chances are you will find pretty much any betting option and market in the sports betting universe, which is like music in the ears of experienced bettors. The best thing about betting with Betin Kenya is that the operator provides a detailed table with all the calculated odds so that bettors can wager on whatever match/event they feel luckier betting on. And, let’s not forget the virtual betting section that allows them to place bets on virtual games and matches, such as virtual football, horse racing, tennis, dog racing, and basketball.
Betin Kenya odds – 5
This Betin Kenya review goes on to point #3 and analyses the bookmaker’s odds, which are, admittedly, very pleasing. Punters will enjoy an excellent payout of 96.1% for football bets, 94.4% for basketball, 94.9% for tennis, and an average of 95.1%.
Streaming and live betting on Betin Kenya – 4
The bookie’s live betting section is outstanding, despite the fact that in-play betting is not possible for all markets. Users can access game statistics and opt for the team they believe will win based on the scoreline’s assessment.
Concerning live streaming, it enables players to enjoy consistent streaming quality and choose how they want to monitor the event available for live streaming (i.e., classic, multi-bet view or multiview), which enables them to watch up to 4 different events at the same time, which is a great function not often seen across online bookmakers. There are no money/balance requirements at this moment so that you can join either function.
Betin Kenya mobile app – 4
The bookmaker pleases mobile players with a mobile platform, yet, there are no dedicated apps for neither the sportsbook nor the casino client. The mobile experience, though, is excellent as it is not only 100% user-friendly but also available for Android, iOS, and Windows users as long as they have a Wi-fi, LTE, or 4G connection. The mobile site bares nearly all features available on the desktop version, including cash-out, live streaming, and in-play betting.
Betin Kenya payment options – 3
The 6th point assessed by this Betin Kenya review is the operator’s funding methods. Although you won’t find a plethora of options, unlike other bookmakers that list credit/debit cards, e-wallets, prepaid cards, and even crypto currency, Betin Kenya players can top their account and withdraw money via M-Pesa; the most popular payment method in Kenya. Alternatively, they can proceed their transactions through Airtel Money or Bank Transfer.
The bookie mentions that carrier fees for processing deposits or withdrawals apply, but it does not specify any further. As for the max withdrawable amount, it could reach 140,000Ksh if you have, at least, 66Ksh available balance, which is in line with the market average (if not more satisfactory). Nevertheless, since the operator is only available for Kenya players, the only currency allowed for transactions is KES.
Betin Kenya Customer care – 4
The last area of this Betin Kenya review goes through the bookmaker’s customer service. To get in touch with a customer support agent, players can use:
- Live Chat
- Twitter customer service account
The bookmaker provides a satisfactory-long list of phone lines to call, which are available on a 24/7 basis so that players can have their issue resolved or question answered the soonest possible, round the clock. The live chat, which is one of the fastest ways to speak to a company rep, though, is open from 7am to 11 pm so if a query comes late at night, you will either need to send an email and wait 24 hours for a reply or come back early next morning. Overall, the response times are more than decent compared to other operators and the customer support department enjoys positive reviews in its vast majority.
Our Verdict and average rating
Concluding this Betin Kenya review, the operator has definitely lots to please Kenya punters with, especially those into football and tennis sports betting, who are provided with a plethora of betting markets to place their wagers. The betting choices also come in abundance at Betin Kenya, though we would love to see Asian Handicaps becoming available sometime soon, while the 50% Karibu bonus that can load new players’ accounts with up to Ksh 5,000 is more than generous.
Finally, features such as live betting, live streaming, and cash out are very well presented on both the desktop and mobile platforms. And, although it would be great if the site was not available only in Kenya and hosted a wider range of payment methods, it does provide the one the majority of Kenyans use (MPesa).
|What we like||What we don’t like|
|Wide range of betting options||Long list of restricted countries|
|Great live streaming and live betting sessions||No Asian Handicaps|
|Generous welcome bonus|
