Odds — good

We calculated the margin for Odibets 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

Football

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.

Odibets has an overall margin of 4.23% for football and falls in the good value category. In the first section using odds from the English Premier League, the margin is at 3.56%. The second section with Spanish La Liga and Italian Serie A, has a margin of 3.57%. Finally, by counting the English Football League One, Austrian Bundesliga and Polish Ekstraklasa, the margin is at 5.57%.

Betting options — normal

Odibets is a relatively new betting platform in Kenya, established in 2018.

Range of Sports: It is common knowledge that variety is a compelling factor that pulls punters to a bookie. However, considering the limited number of sports available on the platform of Odibets, they are bound to lose a lot of customers. As of the time of writing this review, there are just about 11 sports available on the site and that could obviously been better.

On Odibets, you can bet on popular games like football, basketball, tennis and the non-traditional sporting events like darts and handball.

Regarding the user interface, there is a lot of improvement to be done. The green and black themes make it difficult to figure out the icons and appropriately make the right selection. The overall design is simplistic and could be improved upon to guarantee a delightful betting experience on the platform.

There's a recent addition of a virtual league, called Odi league and if you are a lover of virtuals, you are definitely going to find this exciting.

For casino lovers on the other hand, this platform might probably not be the best, as there are little to no casino games available.

Range of Bets and Markets: Nothing excites a punter more than a bookie with endless options. As it is common knowledge, wide betting options is one of the main points all bettors are looking for being checked on a bookie.

The distribution of betting options across the different sport categories of the site is largely uneven. It is apparent that football is the main focus as there are relatively more betting options to find there than in any other sport or event.

For those that have keen interest in football, you can find popular betting options available on the platform quite pleasing. Options like "Over/under", "Double chance" and some more exciting options like "1st goalscorer" are all there.

Unfortunately, other sports did not get the same focus as football with regards to their options. A couple of other sporting events have just the basic win, draw and over options and that comes as a disadvantage in the overall rating of their sportsbook.

Betting limits: The bet that you can place on each selection should be enough for most. Although, like it’s expected from almost every bookmaker nowadays, the limits are getting sized down when it comes to lower leagues.

Live — normal

In recent times, the live betting feature has become a must-have for every bookie. So much that when it is absent, it seems like an anomaly.

With the live betting feature, punters can play ongoing games armed with the information they have from the live statistics. Exciting, right?

Given its perks, it is a no brainer why punters tend to appreciate having this feature.

The live section of Odibets is thoroughly done. It is highly responsive with statistics updates that come as a perfect addition to help punters make the right betting decisions.

What makes the live section of Odibets more impressive is the wide selection of sports available. As at the time of this review, there were about 11 sports available in the live section in which football, basketball, tennis, badminton are included.

Odibets didn't get it right with the wide selection of sports only in their live section, as the markets available there are mouthwatering for live events. To put things in perspective, a live football match on Odibets could have over 60 markets available. Interestingly, this is not restricted to football alone.

Overall, the live section of Odibets would easily score an A. However, they should consider adding a live streaming feature as that is slowly becoming the norm amongst other bookies.

Bonuses Odibets

The one bonus available

Punters love the idea of winning. They love the idea of getting incentives that helps them get going with their game. Any bookie that understands this basic human psychology knows how to equip their platform with a lot of juicy promotional offers. It is rare for a punter to see a bookie with exciting promotional packages and not come back yearning for more.

Odibets are lacking in this regard as their promotional packages are so scarce. This might be a deterrent for new customers who are just using its services for the first time.

It takes a whole lot of struggle to find exciting promotions on the platform that punters could take advantage of. This is a valid reason for punters to leave the site and get to others with much more exciting bonuses.

There is a whole lot of improvement to be done in that regard and we are hoping they look into this and do the needful.

However, below is one of the promotions Odibets offers.
