Betsafi.com is a relatively new name in Kenya, but boasts plenty of exciting gameplay options that will interest punters. The site is growing strongly, as indicated by the high number of current bets (as seen under each sporting activity).
The current bets can be seen on the menu running down the left-hand flank, which indicates what sports betting markets are available. The biggest action is on football, while scrolling further down there are also win-chances for sports such as basketball, cricket, ice-hockey, handball, volleyball, boxing and American football.
The main landing page offers the viewer an opportunity to see the full scope of the platform, with the main menu directory showing off its many features.
The site offers live in-play action, a sizable football jackpot, virtual play, promotions and details on the betsafi.com app.
The site-makers have done well to present a clean, striking and comprehensive platform, though the pay bill number is not shown on the main landing page. The pay bill number is 299560, and this can be found in the FAQ section, under the sub-heading ‘how to deposit’.
The complete explanation of how to play can be found here, with punters having the chance to follow a step-by-step guide how to sign-up, deposit and withdraw.
The T’s and C’s section is impressive and offers glossaries, bet markets and explanations, rules and other vital information.
The portal offers pretty much the same as the top market leaders in Kenya and the betsafi football jackpot is among the bigger win-amounts available.
The punter can follow the jackpot action by clicking on the link or searching the site’s terms and conditions.
The terms and conditions section offer the best information regarding the gameplay of the jackpot.
The site offers a mid-week and a weekend jackpot, both 15-leg affairs of the traditional 1×2 (home win, draw, away win) format. All bets can be made through the online portals, namely web, mobi and app, as well as through SMS.
The maximum win amount is advertised but the terms and conditions show that a punter that picks 14 out of 15 can win 5 million Kenyan Shillings, and 13 out of 15 could net 2 million bob.
Winnings can be paid via mobile money, bank transfer or cheque.
There are no advertised minimum or maximum stake amounts to play in the football jackpot.
The platform offers a wide and diverse selection of virtual play games including football, dog-racing, horse-racing, motorsports, table-tennis and badminton. The bet market for each of these events is large and varied, offering anything from small, risk free outcomes to larger wins depending on the wager.
In the dog-racing for example there are 8 runners and the odds range from 3/1 to 30/1.
The football VP market is substantial and offers punters an opportunity for low risk wins as well as massive odds like 4000/1 for correct scores (6-0 for example).
There are bets on over/under, half-time/full-time, btts, time of first goal and many more.
The platform offers a limited range of promotions, with two giveaway regards for punters, namely a betsafi boost (accumulator bonus with a minimum of 10 legs), as well as a stake back bonus of up to 2500 Shillings. To be eligible for the stake back, vets must be placed at odds 9.99/1 or upwards.
This bonus applies to sports betting and virtual play but cannot be used for jackpot action.
The stake back is only eligible for new players, ones that have not yet made a bet on the site.
The promo offers players a 100% stake back if they lose their first bet, with a minimum bet of 50 Shillings.
The two promos can be found under the promotions link on the main landing page menu directory.
These promotions do not stack up favourably with some of the biggest players in the Kenyan industry, but at least there are a couple to keep new and loyal punters interested.
The love in-play betting offers a considerable bet-market, with hundreds of bet-types available for each contest including Asian Handicap, over/under, correct score, first-half/second half, and many more.
The mobile app is available on android devices.
The FAQ section (found at top of main landing page) directs the punter to all betting related queries and covers everything from how to be on live games to forgotten passwords.
Betsafi is an online sports betting site that ticks most of the boxes needed to flourish in the Kenyan marketplace, and the sizable jackpot, VP and huge bet-market are some top features.
The scant promotions and lack of pay bill info on main page is disappointing but not terminal issues. This site is gaining traction and is recommended for new players.
