Betvantage at a glance
This brand is operated and run by Betvantage Limited whose operations have been approved and licensed by BCLB( Betting control and Licencing Board of Kenya) under the license number BK 0000125. Being a local betting shop, players can opt to access this site in either English or Swahili as provided.
Mpesa being the most dominant means used to remit payments in Kenya, it makes total sense that it was the platform of choice at Betvantage. The procedure is quite easy as all you have to do is enter the amount and click deposit. The transaction is instant with your funds credited to your account immediately you receive a confirmation message from the bookie.
The withdrawal process is just as easy as the deposit with only the amount input required from you. The withdrawal limit is capped at 70,000 kes with the minimum being 200 kes.
Players are allowed a maximum of 2 withdrawals per day with no charges.
The unique thing about Betvantage that separates it from the rest of the local bookies is the news product made available at the home page, the news provided does not necessarily have to be exclusively about their offers or events. Head over to the site and read interesting articles like the thrashing of Liverpool by underdogs Aston Villa or Pogba’s intent to leave manchester for Real Madrid. Available products by betvantage include sports, live betting, esports and virtuals which have been outlined traditionally at the top of webpage. You could also change the odds format if you don’t like the decimal default.
The multiview feature is also another cool feature you don’t find on most local bookies. With betvantage you can now keep tabs with multiple games as you wage in live in play games.
The registration process is simple with new players only requiring their registered Safaricom’s numbers to get an account. After verification of the number which is also instant, players can go ahead and make deposits and bet right away.
Betvantage lacks the live chat function but the bookie has compensated for this with their active presence and engagement of players on social media. In Kenya, social platforms are one of the most preferred channel to contact customer support across the corporate environment and Betvantage has surely complied judging by their activities displayed on facebook.
As you can see, Godonto Blizz preferred the facebook route and the issue was sorted out.
For the players with a preference with other channels like calls or email, check the image below.
Promos and bonuses
At the time of drafting this review, 2 bonuses were available and they were all entry bonuses.
- 100% multibet bonus on deposit players earn when they place a bet with a minimum 3 picks and a minimum and max stake of 10 kes and 100 kes respectively.
- 50% single bet bonus on deposit on a bet with minimum odds of 1.6 with a stake of between 10-100 kes.
Note that you must claim these bonuses before depositing to qualify for them.
Average. The odds can definitely be improved. Though this is not reflected on all markets. 1X2 and over/under in soccer have really nice odds. Tennis and other less popular sports odds don’t seem to tempt me to place bets. Thumbs up to the bookie on the good number of markets available.
The limits set by the sportsbook are outlined on the official webpage as you can see below.
Mobile app is available for download. However getting it from the playstore as indicated on the mobile version of the webpage proved to be impossible. Download it from their facebook page.
Experience and summary
Kudos to the bookmaker for the fast processing speed of payments to the bookie. The multiview feature too is something other local bookies can pick from them with how efficient it is. If you love live in-play games and want to keep track of multiple games, then betvantage is for you. However, the odds can definitely be improved and other features like the jackpot and live chat added.
The sportsbook gets 4.3 stars mostly because of the odds margin. The website otherwise works pretty well and the betting options present to players are quite commendable. The entry bonuses too are attractive if we are being honest. Players don’t have to deposit large sums as compared to other betting shops.
Is the cashout available at betvantage?
No cash out is available at betvantage at the moment. But the bookie is working on introducing that feature very soon.
I’m Kanyi Muturi and am from Tabuga, a small village in Nakuru. I have been following all sports since I was a kid and have been interested in the gambling side of sports since I was in high school. It took me a little while to get a grasp on all of the different gambling terminology and understand how confusing and complicated it can all seem when you first start.
Are you a professional gambler?
I am a successful gambler. But make no mistake about it: I’m a long-time recreational sports bettor. I’m not a professional gambler. I’m not claiming to be a professional gambler. I’ve never, to my recollection, even been acquainted with a professional gambler. And far be it from me to make the preposterous claim that following my advice will turn you into a professional gambler. It ain’t about that. Not here it ain’t. I just want to teach you a new form of recreation, a fun new pastime in what can sometimes be an unfun life.
