Gentingbet is one of those bookies that began operating land casinos way back and that is where their greatest presence is felt to date. But more recently the bookmaker has been venturing more into online operations including introducing sports betting that has grown tremendously. As they continue to improve and diversify, it’s worth noting that they have a lot to offer in the casino and live dealer games as compared to sports betting as evidenced by the casino offers available. On the downside, I find the website too slow and buggy and will at times log you out if you stay inactive for sometime.
Gentingbet at a glance
Genting group which is the parent company of gentingbet was established in the late 1960’s and has been developing and running physical land casinos alongside hospitality and leisure activities before they began to venture online when the technology allowed. Gentingbet longevity has managed to portray them as a reputable company to players. The website is owned and operated by Genting Malta Limited and has been registered in the UK under the licence number 54207 and also licensed outside the UK by Malta Gaming Authority under the license number MGA/B2C686/2019.

As is with all traditional online sportsbooks, alternative depositing and withdrawal platforms are available like Visa, Mastercard and Cash transfer just to mention a few. Unfortunately no e-wallets, bank transfers or cheques are allowed by this bookie.
From a content perspective, the site is well laid out with the main products on offer put on the menu at the top i.e Casino, live casino and sports. You can edit the odds format right from the homepage if you don’t prefer the fraction default. I also did find the upfront communication on the available offers quite nice. For the sport lovers, you can access all the available sports on the left side of the screen or the menu and find more products that may catch your interests. Casino players are not to be left behind, there are multiple offers available to them including live casino offers.
Like every other modern online sport betting site, a live chat, email, telephone numbers and social media platforms are a must have if you are to satisfy all your players. This bookie has done just that, you can contact them via the live chat option at the bottom right of the webpage. The support team is available throughout.

Gentingbet in Kenya
The bookie accepts registration from Kenyan players. However the website keeps logging out and logging back in is close to impossible because you have to contact the customer care. You are better off steering clear of this bookie.
Football and tennis seem to have better odds compared to the rest of the sports. The football markets too are too little as compared to other well established leagues with some football matches on gentingbet having about 15 markets. Too low to be honest. Having 1.05 odds on anything even a sure win is too low to say the least
The minimum deposit you can make on gentingbet is 10 Euros. The same limit applies for the withdrawal. The bookie allows a maximum payout of 100,000 Euros. The bookie has a nice feature on your account section where the player gets to limit the amount of money that can be deposited to the bookie on a time basis that the player chooses. Could be daily monthly or on a weekly basis
No mobile application is available for download yet.
Experience and summary
Navigating the website proved to be the greatest issue when betting with the website. Some pages will totaly not load or will take excessively long periods. You will at times get locked out of your account if you are inactive and you have to log in once again. The bookie will surely get more loyal players if they improve that aspect of the site. Their live betting I must say is commendable. You will like the wide markets present and if you are a casino lover, you have a lot of options in your hand when it comes to live dealer games.
This bookie deserves to get 2.5 stars. The bookie definitely does not run out of betting options in both the sport betting and casino sections. However, the website might leave you frustrated with how it gets unresponsive at times. The not so attractive odds will also in the long run have you looking at other options. The entry offers are worth trying out though.
Can I use multiple payment platforms on my account with GentingBet?
If multiple payments are available to you, you can use them to make deposits and withdrawals. However you are only allowed up to a maximum of 3 credit/debit cards and only one of any other extra method.
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.
