Playabet is increasingly gaining grounds in the betting market of Kenya. Their competitive odds range and broad selection of sports help a great deal in attracting punters.
Range of Sports: Currently, the site has about 20 sports enlisted on its sports menu, which is not bad at all for a new bookie. They boast the likes of football, basketball, MMA, boxing, and even snooker.
For football, there are a plethora of leagues featured on the site that punters could take advantage of. The above is also true for other sports enlisted on the platform. So, there is somewhat an even distribution along them.
With their Jackpot, they add a little spice to the betting experience they offer. They have on offer daily events and give their customers chance to win big with just little stakes. As at the time of this review, they had about four events with total cash prizes of 300,000 KSh while two other events had grand prizes of 5,000,000 KSh to be won. That is definitely something that could entice prospective customers.
Virtual leagues are also not left out in this mix as punters can enjoy quite a lot virtual games for their betting pleasure. Elsewhere, we also noticed a lack of casino games on the website and that is something they should add to their sportsbook in the nearest future.
The user interface is somewhat bland and needs a little burst of color to make the site more vivid. On the flip side, the site is quite easy to navigate.
Range of Bets and Markets: The number of betting options available is one of the key criteria punters look out for before settling on a bookie. It is like a determining factor that influences their decision whether to stick with a bookie or not. And you can't blame them.
Playabet is conversant with this and as such provides a wide range of betting options to wager on.
As expected, football has more betting options available than other sports although the others are not particularly scanty. However, it will be a welcome development if more betting options are added for other sports like tennis and basketball.
As for the football lovers, they get to enjoy over 150 betting markets for most football matches. Options on their sportsbook include markets like "first goalscorer", "halftime/fulltime", "goals scored in minutes 41-45", "half with the most goals" and many more.
Betting limits: The amount of money that can be placed on a bet should be enough for most. Although, like is expected the limits are getting chopped when it comes to betting on lower leagues, but that’s the case on the whole industry.
