Review of the bookmaker Helabet from Legalbet

Helabet is a fast-growing online betting company that's closely approaching a king status in the betting industry in Kenya. As of the time of this review, the platform records over 400,000 online users. The figure goes to prove how much of a force the company is. With consistency, the company is surely headed for the stars. They are licensed by the BLCB (Betting control and licensing board of Kenya).

Odds — good

We calculated the margin for Helabet 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.

Helabet has an overall margin of 2.08% for football and falls in the good value category. In the first section using odds from the English Premier League, the margin is at 1.57%. The second section with Spanish La Liga and Italian Serie A, has a margin of 1.56%. Finally, by counting the English Football League One, Austrian Bundesliga and Polish Ekstraklasa, the margin is at 3.12%.

Betting options — good

Helabet is one of the websites with a growing positive reputation in the Kenyan online betting industry.

Range of Sports: The platform features a wide array of sports on its menu to avail its users unlimited choices. We are talking about popular sports like football, basketball, volleyball and many more. They also offer some not so popular sports like skiing, keirin, martial arts and a host of others to show their range of diversity.

It would also suffice to add that Helabet is not only keen on sporting events, they also make provision for other non-sporting events like politics, entertainment or even the weather. Interesting, right? For sure it is.

Lovers of virtual sports are not left out. As at the time of this review, there are about four thrilling virtual games that punters can choose from.

The user interface of the platform is very impressive. It features purple, gold and white colour themes, which adds an extra touch to it. Another thing worthy of note is how easily maneuverable the site is. Every sport and their respective options are well aligned to enable easy navigation on the website while betting.

Range of Bets and Markets: A wide selection of sports is not all that matters to an average punter. Also, the availability of extensive betting options is a sure factor that could play a role in making the punter a returning customer. This is a tested and trusted knowledge and every bet company knows this.

Helabet are also privy to this secret and as such enable a wide array of betting options across the different sport categories on the platform. The exciting thing about this is that, the distribution of options across the different categories is well balanced.

Football lovers however will find this platform interesting, considering the special markets they have in stall as opposed to the popular markets. We are talking about options like "1st half duel between players (goals)", "shots on target", "post and crossbars" and a handful of them.

Betting limits: The amount of money that can be placed on a bet should be enough for most punters. Although, you may expect that the limits are getting a cut on lower leagues as it's the case everywhere nowadays.

In-play — good

Live betting is now a feature all bookies must look to have on their sportsbook. Over recent years, bettors have leaned towards in-play betting and it has gotten popular with time. Helabet boast a well-packed live betting corner and we were left impressed with them after a review of this section. In fact, they have one of the best in-play betting in the Kenyan betting sphere.

As at the time of review, Helabet have 24 different sports available for live betting. That is even more than what other bookies offer on their pre-game section. It gets even better considering they have E-sports available in this section as well.

Asides the diversity in sports, they are well stacked for options all over as well. Football has well over 80+ options and the likes of basketball, tennis and volleyball have at least 50+ options on ground, depending on the competition.

It’s safe to say they are among the leading bookmakers in this regard and perhaps some of their competitors can take a cue from them.

But for one thing, Helabet would have been ‘perfect’ in this section. There is no live streaming function and this is something that could be improved on since other bet platforms are beginning to introduce this feature too.

Regardless, it must be said once again that have a very impressive live betting section and not many come close to what they have.
