Pangabet at a glance
PANGABET LIMITED owns and are the providers of this site. The bookie has been licenced by BCLB under the betting, lotteries and gaming act. Their registration licence number is BK 0000162. The sportsbook was established fairly recently and has not been in the market for a very long time judging by their social media activities.
- Simplistic and minimalistic website. The theme and the website layout is definitely attractive straight to the point. Users can choose between light and dark themes. I find this feature attractive because it gives players in app experience without the actual app.
Notice how the two themes contrasts in the images below.
- Lucky numbers game that is easy and inexpensive to participate in.

- No jackpot is available for the ambitious punters.
- No live match tracker or statistics is available at the site.
- There is also no live chat option for reaching the customer care desk. Users are only left with the options of emailing or calling them.
Mpesa is the only viable payment option available to players. However the bookie promises to incorporate Airtel money as another option. This will be a great option for its users because it’s not a secret how mpesa has a monopoly of mobile transactions on every aspect of online betting hence the transaction rates are quite expensive. Users need this alternative asap. The procedure of depositing and withdrawing from this platform is quite easy and convenient. A participant does not need to leave the site to make these transactions. Just input the figure to be withdrawn and the rest of the process will be initiated by the site itself while you wait to key in your mpesa pin. Withdrawal and depositing is instant.
This bookie has one of the best platforms I have interacted with. The mobile version is for sure the best. On logging to the site, you will straight away see every option available to you. Ranging from the games available to the bet slips you have placed. Right at the top you have the lucky number game, live in play games, football, basketball, rugby and so on. Under the live games, users can view the live in play games and upcoming live games as they are arranged from the most immediate matches. Under every other sport, players can view games of their interests categorized into; live, highlights, upcoming and by countries.
If you have queries you would like sorted out by the pangabet team, players have to contact them through firstname.lastname@example.org or call them through the number highlighted at the bottom of the website. They can also be reached through their social media pages on facebook, twitter and instagram. They have little to no presence on twitter with their last post dated on may 2019. On facebook, the bookie has little interaction with its followers though they do post regularly on top fixtures and offers they have in store for you.
The registration process on the pangabet platform cannot get easier than it already is. You only require the cell number and password combo to get registered and you are ready to start placing bets. You could also SMS the word CHEZA to 29900 to get into the system.
Promos and bonuses
The bookie offers a free bet of 30 kes on depositing ksh 99 on your pangabet account.
Pangabet- the good
Incorporating the lucky numbers game to an otherwise exclusive sport betting site was a good idea.
the sportsbook has just the right number of games for you to choose. Everyone from the soccer fans to basketball fans all the way to the boxing pundits are accomodated by the bookie.
Reaching the customer support desk is quite the hustle. The absence of instant messaging or a live chat option at the site does the players injustice.
every betting guru out there likes to take his chances with the jackpot. This gem missing from the bookie’s website will quite dissapoint players after it.
The minimum amount that punters can deposit is 1 kes while the maximum is 70,000 kes. As for the withdrawals, the minimum and the maximum figures are 100 kes and 70,000 kes.
Quality of odds
Average. 1.65 odds GG for a match with both teams known to play attack football is not too bad.
No app is available for this bookie. Regardless you will find pangabet’s website, more so the mobile version satisfying enough. You get to access the same great interface across all deives.
With regard to ease of use of interface I would 100% recommend this bookie. However, its odds are quite average and the absence of jackpot, match tracker and statistics quite does not make me want to be a frequent punter with them. Also, the lack of incentives to keep loyal users going back in terms of promos and bonuses doesn’t do it any justice.
I would award this bookie 3.5 stars. Not enough incentives by the bookie to its players. Also the odds are quite average in my opinion.
Is the entry bonus available?
Yes. the bonus is available but a new player has to make a deposit of at least 99 kes and place a bet to be able to use it.
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.
