We calculated the margin for Betika 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.
Betika has an overall margin of 4.43% for football and falls in the good category. In the first section with Premier League and Championship, the margin is at 4.31%. The second section with Spanish La Liga and Italian Seria A, the margin is at 3.39%. Finally, taking the Australian A-League, Belgian Pro League and Netherlands Eredivisie into account, the margin is at 5.59%.
Range of Sports and Markets - Good
Range of Sports: Betika offers all the popular sports - football, tennis, basketball, ice hockey, handball, table tennis, MMA, volleyball, boxing, rugby, cricket, Aussie rules, cycling, darts, badminton, bowling, baseball, motorsport, American football, and Futsal.
Betika offers three virtual football leagues:
- The older virtual league that mimics games between EPL teams.
- Betika Super League, modelled on English, German, Spanish and Italian premier leagues.
- The Euro champions modelled on the UEFA champions league.
Other virtual games include greyhound racing, horse racing, motocross and MotoGP racing. There is also a Spin 2 Win betting offer under the virtual games.
Betika also offers casino games. There are roulette and blackjack among the more popular games. But the number of casino games is not impressive because there are less than 20 games on offer.
Range of Bets and Markets: Betika offers 500+ pre-match betting options for the big-league games. There are slightly fewer betting options for lower-tier league games, missing options such as goalscorer bets. Betika offers a large variety of betting options for other sports as well. For example, there can be 300+ pre-match options for American NFL.
Betting Limits: The minimum betting odds are 4.99, but there is no limit to maximum odds. However, the payout is limited to Kes. 1.5 million for any betting ticket. The maximum betting stake is also limited to Kes. 100,000.
In-Play Betting - Bad
Betika does not offer in-play or live bets. It is very odd for a prominent bookmaker.
