Review of the bookmaker Betking from Legalbet

Betking Kenya has only been around since 2018 but they have ascended the ladder and become one of the top shot online betting platforms in Kenya. Not just in Kenya but they are well known across Africa as well and the presence of Jay Jay Okocha as their ambassador has helped them grow faster. Regarding betting, their success could be attributed to the endless betting options available, wide array of sporting events offered or the blissful betting experience they assure. Their growth is indeed highly commendable. Their operations are licensed by the BCLB in Kenya with license number 0000156.

Odds — normal

We calculated the margin for Betking by analysing the odds they offer. We further ranked them in 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’re getting our results by taking into account the odds for final result outcomes measured in line with the total goals scored for different football leagues. By getting the average results using this method, we were able to obtain the margins for each league and also the overall betting margin for the bookmaker.

Betking has an overall margin of 5.87% for football and falls in the average value category. In the first section using odds from the English Premier League, the margin is at 5.44%. The second section with Spanish La Liga and Italian Serie A, has a margin of 5.47%. Finally, by counting the English Football League One, Austrian Bundesliga and Polish Ekstraklasa, the margin is at 6.71%.

Betting options — good

Range of Sports: Betking is one of the widely talked about online betting platforms in Kenya. The reason, however, is not so farfetched. Considering the great number of sports they offer, it is only expected that punters flock to their platform like flies around sugar.

As of the time of this review, the platform has enlisted about 20 different sports in its menu. On their sportsbook, they have popular sports like soccer, tennis, basketball, rugby, volleyball but also some not-so-popular ones like bandy, floorball and many more.

With the recent wave surrounding Esports, it is exciting to have a betting platform enlist it in their sports menu, with competitive odds to wager on as well.

Virtual games are not exempted from the sport selection also. You get to see 3 main virtual leagues (virtual Liga, virtual premier, and virtual Italiano) to wager on.

The user interface is very appealing to the eyes. The blue, yellow, and white color themes used make it easy to maneuver through the website and make the appropriate selection. Also, the arrangement of sections on the website allows for a hassle-free betting experience.

Range of Bets and Markets: It is unarguably commendable to feature a wide range of sports on a betting platform, but what is the major bone of contention is the number of betting options available on those sport categories. Because at the end of the day, what's the essence of different sports enlisted if there are only a handful of betting options to wager on?

This site will be a delight for any punter considering the number of options they have across different categories. It could even be argued that BetKing Kenya has probably the best options enlisted among most betting platforms in Kenya.

For football lovers especially, they will find this platform particularly exciting and not just because of the numerous options offered but also the special options they have that are rare to find. On the football section for most leagues, you see options like "VAR to be used" "To win from behind Home" "Shots on target O/U Away FT & ET" "Own goal" to mention but a few.

It is safe to say that Betking is the hub of unlimited betting options.

Betting limits: There aren’t any excessive limitations on the amount that can be wagered on a bet here. Although you should expect the likely norm of the less popular markets having lowered betting limits.

Live — normal

Live In-play has widely become a necessary addition to most online betting platforms. This is because bookies are beginning to see how much punters enjoy wagering live games. So they try to give them premium in-play betting experience.

Betking Kenya leaves no stone unturned in this regard. They are well aware of the perks of having an impressive in-play feature and they have made provision for the best.

To access the live games on the website, it doesn't demand any special tech knowledge. All you just have to do is click on the icon on the top left that has live labelled under it and you will be exposed to a wide array of live sporting events to wager on.

Interestingly, most of the sports enlisted on the live section, especially football, have just as much betting options as you would find on prematches. We are talking about over 150 being options, most of the times, to wager on in-play games.
