Helabet Review for Kenya


Helabet is one of the oldest online bookmakers in Kenya – it was established back in 2003 year and today represents one of the most popular betting websites in the country. Even though this page specializes in sport betting, here you can also try Forex trading, as well as bet on virtual sports. Currently, Hela Bet does not offer online casino or a poker room.

Sports betting

Sports category in helabet.com introduces you a wide range of different sport types to bet on, including the following:

  • Football
  • Tennis
  • Basketball
  • Cricket
  • Boxing, MMA and other fighting and sport disciplines
  • Ice hockey
  • Track and field athletics
  • American football
  • Cycling
  • Darts
  • Formula 1, NASCAR, Motorcycling, Speedway and other moto sport disciplines
  • Golf
  • Rugby League and Rugby Union
  • Surfing
  • The Olympic games
  • Betting on events that aren’t sport, for example Politics, Special bets, TV shows and movies
  • Others

As you can expect it from a Kenyan bookie in general, here at Hela bet Kenya takes the focus and the attention by making an offer to the audience to bet on various football events from all over the world. Naturally, most of these events are those from the European leagues, where the most interesting championships are, but you can find odds not only for them, but even from matches from African leagues. The premium football league in Kenya is one of the hundreds of different leagues this bookie provides. Also, the program of the sports betting website www.helabet.com offers other Kenyan leagues.

Another sport discipline helabet invests a lot of time and resources to provide the best service ever is cricket. The company has determined itself as the best place for football and cricket betting in Kenya and it is for sure that such a statement is close to the truth.

Making a comparison with the competition as to the entire range of sport bets, vuvu hela leaves behind most of its local competitors, but yet we cannot miss to say that there are bookies with more options and offers in the world. However, this bookmaker provides absolutely all of the leagues from the sport disciplines it contains and punters usually are interested by. So if you aren’t a professional and you aren’t up to bet on the fifth football division in Germany, for instance, here at hela bet your needs will be fully satisfied.

The average number of the offered events per sport discipline and per day is bigger than 200 and during the weekends it is 500 on a daily basis.

If we try to count the betting options, the number would be bigger than 10 000 as for the top football matches Helabet provides more than 200 different betting options, while the number for the other sport disciplines reaches 100.


As to the helabet odds, the comparison to other bookies represents the same conclusion as to the comparison of the sport types. Helabet is one of the best Kenyan local betting sites, but not that great in worldwide range.

It is important to say, though, that this bookie provides quite amazing odds for the favourites. If you appear to bet on the favourite team often, you will be amazed and positively surprised by Helabet odds.

We have made a comparison of the odds for the favourites during the upcoming round of the English premium league in Helabet Kenya and one of the top betting websites as to the odds. Here are the results of the comparison:

  • Win for Tottenham – 1.28 odd in Helabet against 1.22 in the competitor
  • Win for Chelsea – 1.33 odd in Helabet against 1.33 in the competitor
  • Win for Arsenal – 1.75 odd in Hela Bet against against 1.75 in the competitor
  • Win for Manchester City – 2.28 odd in Helabet against 2.14 in the competitor
  • Win for Manchester United– 1.21 odd in Helabet against 1.21 in the competitor

As you can see, Hela betting has equivalent odds to those the world’s best choice a sports betting website has in three of the available matches and in two of the cases the odds in Bet VuvuHela are even better. Of course, we shouldn’t forget that the odds for the losers are lower. The same tendency can be seen in the other sport disciplines, but only in football.

Live betting

Hela Bet website has a well-developed platform for live betting, too. Yet, the range of sport disciplines here isn’t that wide.

Live betting on the helabet site

The live betting program includes the following sport disciplines:

  • Football
  • Cricket
  • Basketball
  • Volleyball
  • Tennis
  • Ice hockey

The other sport disciplines can be found in live betting sections only represented by their biggest events.

Yet, even though the sport disciplines here are not so many, their number isn’t that low and they are all popular disciplines, when it comes to live betting. We have made a comparison once again and during the time we have done it, helabet.com offers 63 football matches and 16 basketball games in live betting section, while the world’s top bookie – Betfair – has 51 football matches and 6 basketball events available in its live betting section.

Here, at the live betting section you can also find the so popular service live streaming, but it hasn’t become that popular yet, because it needs more modernisation.

Virtual sports and Forex trading

Virtual sports betting by helabet

Since 2017 Helabet has been proud for its virtual betting, too. The virtual bets include 6 games that are developed by BetConstruct Company – football, tennis, rally, cycling, horse racing and hounds. We cannot say that the virtual sports are that impressive, but their visualization is definitely fine. What is left to be seen to call them great is to make the realistic look of each sport better. At least, the odds of these sports are as good as those from the real ones. But still, we would like to see more of the Hela Bet’s virtual betting section.

Forex trading by helabet

Forex trading at helabet, though, is a bit old-fashioned. On the other side, Kenyan customers are not that familiar with it, so they might not find it that out of date. What you have to do in this section is to guess correctly whether within a certain period of time the value of one currency towards another one would be higher or lower than the value the bookie has provided in the trade. This service cannot be estimated as perfect in comparison to the Forex trading sections other bookies provide, but at least it is available here at Helabet, while most Kenyan bookies do not offer such a thing at all.

Mobile version

Hela5 Kenya has thought about Kenyan punters, who prefer to bet via their smartphones, when creating their platform, no doubt. The website has its own mobile version you can use from any mobile device.

Helabet mobile version

Helabet mobile version seems to us on a quite high level (in our personal opinion, of course) and using it is a big pleasure. You can find the entire wide range of sport bets the company offers in the desktop version of the website, including the live betting category. Unfortunately, you cannot bet on virtual sports or make Forex trades via m.helabet.com.

It has been a while since the bookie stopped being limited only by its official mobile version as the company has released its own mobile application for Android.
