Payment methods conclusion

All deposits/withdrawals are done by m-pesa. There are no withdrawal charges but the usual M-pesa paybill charges apply when depositing. It would be great if they provided an alternative payment processor as M-Pesa experience frequent delays especially in weekends when most games are; sadly. Unlike they had stated in their About us section.

Betwinner Customer Service

I got a response from their online consultant in 6 minutes. It was impressive.

Betwinner customer support

There was no mention of their “official” Social Media Pages. A Facebook page by the same name had only 18 “likes”. Martin Mark and Jack Mat weren’t impressed.

How Betwinner operates in Kenya

After creating an account, you can bookmark favourite leagues and events from this league will be displayed first. There’s an in-play games tab too. Kenyan players can register by SMS or through their website.

SMS “JOIN” to 29334 and a username/password combo will be sent back. This is the fastest way of registering and you’ll be using the same number to bet by SMS too. When creating an account at https://betwinner.ke/en/, you can either use your phone number or verify through social media. The phone number route is the fastest but you’ll have to verify that number.

You can bet on E-Sports too

Even though e-sports are popular among gamblers elsewhere; they are yet to be appreciated by the Kenyan Market. In traditional betting, you wager on which team will win that soccer match while in e-sports you’re betting on video game players and their teams. Betwinner is currently featuring CS: GO and DOTA matches; both competitive FPS games. Would love to see FIFA on that list.

Betwinner E-sport

Has a Multi-live feature

This is where you combine multiple (live) events into one bet slip. To be honest, this is just live-betting but with extra steps. With other bookies, you just add picks from multiple events without visiting a dedicated page. There were no events in the Multi-Live page at the time of this review

Has a live score/results tab

Their live score is updated in real-time and you do not have to rely on third party apps like Flashcore and SofaScore.

One click Bet

This feature greatly improves their live betting experience. Odds change quickly in Basketball and it sucks having your slip nullified when they do. Once you flick the switch, bets are placed once you tap that market, no confirmation. This helps in making the most out of these odd changes. You need this edge now that all spreads are 80% of what they used to be.

Disadvantages

Betwinner Kenya does not have a verifiable social media presence. The only ways of keeping in touch are by phone/email and live chat.

Welcome Bonus and promotions

100% BONUS ON THE FIRST DEPOSIT UP TO €100

Wagering

Find events you’d like t wager on by browsing the site. You can also use the search feature to find events you’re not sure of which leagues they belong too. Choose a pick and it will be automatically added to your bet slip. You can add more events to make your single bet a multibet. You can only make one pick on each event. The previous selection is discarded. You can flip the “auto-max” switch if this is your lucky day. There’s a 20% withholding tax charged on all bet slips

Sports Betting Experience

Interestingly, this Sportsbook can be used by both beginners and experienced gamblers. Looking for value? Sure. There are at least 1200 markets on each event. Click the + icon to view them all

First-time betting? Try out their bet slip of the day and if beginners’ luck is on your side, you will love BetWinner. I noticed that this feature was only available when you’re not logged in.

Quality of Odds

They have IDENTICAL odds to powerbet, 22bet and Melbet. Not surprising considering that they have the same layout and features.

Betting Limits?

There is no minimum/max stake at Bet winner

Mobile options

Download their IOS/Android mobile app from https://betwinner.ke/en/mobile/

There’s a lite version of the site too that is designed for phones and tablets. I use this even on Desktop as they’ve eliminated many features like e-sports, cockfighting, virtuals etc as I don’t use them anyway.

Summary

Registration was fast and easy. Payments are by M-Pesa and their events selection is extensive.

Overall Rating

I give BetWinner a 4 star. I was impressed by the numerous markets they had. Under football betting, they had all the usual markets – BTTS, 1X2, CS and handicaps. I also loved that you could ager on rather unique events like who will win the premier league. The odds of Arsenal not making it to the top 3 were 1.05. Amusing.
