With all of these we are going to meet you in our detailed review, but let us at first tell you few words about the company behind this bookmaker. It was established in 2010 year and the global brand is owned and managed by Logispin Group, while the Kenyan version is under the control of Gamcode Ltd. Here on our territory the bookie operated under the license released by the National Gambling Regulator and it is fully secured via the most well-known security systems such as Thawte SSL, Fortinet Firewalls, as well as Dell servers. The gambling platform isn’t popular only as one of the most famous pages for bets in Kenya, but also as a sponsor of one of the most successful footballers from our national league – McDonald Mariga, who is the main brand representatives.
The first step you need to perform before becoming one of the several million of members from Betin, is to open the registration form. Here is how to do this:
- In the desktop version – a link in the top right corner from your screen and with a notice Register
- In the mobile version, as well as in the Android application – via the button Register Now at the top left side of the website.
After clicking on this button you will be located on the Open an Account page and here you need to fill in 8 obligatory fields among which you will see the following data details to enter – your number, e-mail address, two names, birth date and a password.
At last, simply click on Register button at the bottom of the same page (Open an Account) and your account will be officially opened without even the necessity to verify it via your e-mail address what is usually required by most of the bookies today.
Like the registration, depositing in Betin is in a full correspondence to the weak computer knowledge most of the Kenyan punters have and does not include anything difficulty or complicated even for the least experienced customers. To make a deposit you need to:
- From the desktop version – go to the link Deposit that is located right under your account balance at the top right corner of the page.
- From the mobile version and the app – via the My Account icon at the top right corner on the page and then, by clicking the Deposit button.

No matter how much you love placing bets on various sport types, we can guarantee you that here in this bookie you will never be left with any options. Yet, here everyone can choose between 500+ and the number of the sport disciplines is more than 20, including less popular types such as water ball, table tennis, badminton, floorball, darts and many others which aren’t listed in the program of the most popular bookmakers today.
However, it is not so certain that you are going to place bets on these particular sports, so we prefer to tell you more about the sport that usually attracts the audience’s attention. Of course, we are talking about the most favourite sport discipline here in Kenya – football. This betting platform provides bets on all of the matches from Kenyan Premium League and for each of them there are more than 100 different options for a bet – score bets, correct score, double chance and many other interesting bet types. Besides the Kenyan championship, here you can also bet on some of the most popular matches from other African leagues – from instance the league in Ghana, Cot Divoire, Morocco, Ruanda, Nigeria, South Africa and many others.
Naturally, Bretin accepts bets on football from all of the European countries, too, and not only from their elite divisions. The market number for the top matches is even bigger than those 100+ possibilities you have at your disposal when it comes to the Kenyan league.
In the sport discipline menu the bookie has you will see other football bets:
- Soccer special – specially tailored bets that include bets such as which team will make the first hit of the ball during the matches from the English Premium league or who the next manager in some of the leading European teams will be.
- Goalscorer – for all the matches from the 5 of the biggest European leagues + for each of the matches from other championships you can bet on the players who will score at first. There are markets for all of the available for the program football players whether they are going to score, as well as if they will score 2+ , 3+, the first or the half score in the game at all. For instance, if you think that Leo Messi is going to score first and the last score, you can place such a bet. Yet, you can also bet if Messi is going to score at all during the next match of Barcelona. In this case you can place a bet at 1.50 or on a higher odd depending on the other team.
- Anetpost soccer – bets that are specially tailored not for the next match, but regarding some actions in a long-term period. For instance, such a bet is who the champion will become, which team will fall out from the group, the goalscorers in the league and etc.
This betting house pays a serious attention on some other sport types such as the motorcycle sports, tennis, cycling, golf, basketball, baseball, handball and others.
The bookie also pays attention on the profits the punters gain by offering them comparatively high odds which if taking a close look at we will see that they are bound with the tendency to be the highest ones in the markets for the favourites (in comparison to most of the bookmakers from Kenya and from the world in general).
The Live betting category includes, on the other side, up to 400 matches per day, which means that for more than 80% of the matches in the Betin program there is a chance for a live bet. If taking under consideration the odds and the types of the bets, the offers remain as good as those from the pre-matches.
However, when it comes to live betting, there is one more extra we need to have in mind. To be more specific there are several extras such as the live streaming service, which lets you watch 100% for free the European football matches, as well as the basketball events from the highest level (and even up to a Championship level), the most interesting tennis events from ATP and WTA tournaments and all of the elite matches from the rest of the sport types available on the website. On the other side, though, we cannot say that this betting company’s live streaming service is the best in the world, but yet, it is good and rich enough as to the events.
While live streaming is available only for the live betting category, all of the rest events can be followed as to their progress via the dynamic graphics and the live statistics the betting house offers.
A predict game
Here is one more amazing experience this website offers you. You can participate in this game with a prediction and get some really generous awards that are up to 20 million of KES while the fee for participation is only 99 KES.
Here are the rules for this game: You have at your disposal 13 matches every week and you need to guess their final outcome – in other words which team (the host or the guest) will get the 3 points from the game or the match will end up as a draw.
Guessing all of the 13 matches will bring you the jackpot of 20 000 000 KES and when there will be more than 1 who has succeeded with the right prediction, the prize is divided into two pieces. If there is no punter who reached such a success in the prediction, or for instance there is a punter who guessed 11 or 12 matches, there will be prizes, too as follows:
- 11 from 13 matches are guessed correctly – 550 000 KES
- 12 from 13 matches are guessed correctly – 1 200 000 KES
The convenience for the punters become even better by the chance to place the bets via SMS message from the mobile device they own.
Especially for the punters from Kenya a bonus that does not appear anywhere else among Betin versions is offered.
We are talking about the deposit bonus of up to 50% of your initial deposit on this betting page. Every new customer can take benefit of it and the only restriction is that the bonus cannot exceed the amount of 5 000 KES.
To become this bonus beneficent you need to at first make a deposit via Mpesa an amount between 300 and 10 000 KES and then, to place a bet at this amount (or many bets) and at an odd of at least 3.00. The bookmaker will transfer you this 50% of the bonus within 72 hours after the moment you collect the bet amount equal to your initial deposit.
What does 50% of the bonus actually mean, though? It means that if you deposit, for example, 5 000 KES, you will additionally receive 2 500 KES as a bonus and you will eventually have 7 500 KES in your account as a start for your betting experience.
Constantly, these bonuses, though, are bound with the Kenyan bookie’s requirement for a turnover – to receive the right to withdrawal the bonus you need to collect bets for 10 x the bonus amount. The bets must be placed at minimum 3.00 as an odd.
Alongside with this bonus, the company also offer some cash back on the fee you are going to have as a deficit when depositing via Airtel or Mpesa. For example, if you deposit 5 000 KES for this deposit the mobile operator will charge you with 50 KES and you will receive in your bookmaker account 5 050 KES. Even though small, this is a really nice gesture from Betin.
The intriguing offers in this betting page continue with a great casino room that has more than 110 games for which we can be grateful to the three casino software companies the bookmaker has a contract with:
- Logi Games – A company that exists under Logispin Group control. It is responsible for all of the animated casino games on the page – table games, slot games, arcade games and number games. The total amount of these games developed by Logi Games is more than 50.
- Evolution Gaming – One of the biggest European gaming companies from which Betin has taken the casino games with a real dealer. The total amount of these live casino games made by Evolution Gaming is more than 50.
- Bet Games TV – After a contract that was signed in the beginning of 2018 year the casino category on this gambling website has TV games made by this company. These games are also streamed live.
One of the best extras available on Betin Online Casino platform is the fact that the punters can play with both: real money and playing money. The second option lets you test each of the games with no risk to lose even a damn or just for fun and 100% for free when you find difficulties into searching for a really interesting sport event to place a bet on.
If you don’t have any experience in the casino games or you don’t know their rules, do not worry – for each of the game the Kenyan page has added some detailed information and terms and conditions.
The third strong point Betin can brag about – after sport betting and the casino games – represents the so called Virtual sports which are offered by the company thanks to its partnership with Betradard. These sports include the following disciplines:
- Virtual football – Here you can bet on a whole virtual championship where in each of the phase there are 8 matches and one of these phases lasts around 3 minutes. The bets on the virtual football include a bet for a half time, double chance, Under / Over 1,5, 2,5 and 3, 5 scores, as well as few Handicaps, correct scores and others.
- Virtual tennis – In virtual tennis, on the other side, you will watch one single tennis tournament that reminds of the Wimbledon tournament, and starts from the phase of semi-finals. For each of the match from this tournament you can bet on the winner of the match / the first set / the first game, correct score during each of the sets, Under or Over 24,5 games, correct score in Set 1, correct score in Game 1 and others.
- Virtual basketball – Juts like in the virtual football, here we watch one single championship, but with 16 teams, which means in every single moment you can choose between 8 matches to place a bet on. In the virtual basketball the markets are nearly 20 per match.
Virtual hounds and Virtual horse racing – Hounds or horse racing lovers can place a bet on such races, too. The bets are for the winner, place forecast, tricast and others.
Betin via mobile devices
Knowing that most of the Kenyan customers use internet via their smartphones, Betin team has established the alternative for the best betting experience with mobile bets on the market. The opportunities include a responsible mobile website, which is available via each mobile device browser, as well as an application for Android you can download by following these simple steps:

You cannot place the casino games or the virtual sports via the app. Yet, they are available via the responsive mobile website version.
Unfortunately, though, not all of the casino games or the virtual sports are accessible via a mobile device. When it comes to the casino games the mobile version gives you a choice between around 70-80 games and all of them are live casino games made by Evolution Gaming, as well as the TV games by Bet Games TV. As to the virtual sports, available among Betin Mobile platform, they are only basketball and football.
At the expense of this restriction, all of the sport betting extras, as well as the rest of the functions on the page, are available on both: the application and the mobile version.
Customer support services
By following the example provided by the biggest world bookies, Betin has a live chat, too. You can use the live chat to execute as fast as possible contact with the website customer support team. Yet, this chat is not available 24/7, but only within the period between 07:00 and 23:00.
If you have something to ask at night and it is emergency you can give a call the customer support representatives, or write them an e-mail, as well as to reach them via the company’s Tweeter account.
