You can only deposit (and withdraw) through M-Pesa. There are claims that this is among the few Kenyan bookies that does crypto, with 22bet being in of them, but these are lies. They have moderate odds; a lengthy signup process and a six-pick jackpot dubbed the “soccer6″‘

PowerBets pros

Simple to use

From the look of it, this is the ideal sportsbook for new players that are not yet used to the betting lingo. Some markets such as the Asian handicap are confusing to newbies and Powerbets doesn’t feature them. They only have 16 markets even on the big soccer games and there isn’t much room for confusion either.

Popular games have boosted odds.

All the popular games are tagged with a “boost” tag indicating that they have higher odds. However, when comparing their odds with another bookmarker. I found out that their odds were in fact slightly lower. This may have been a onetime thing.

Looking at their odds for this soccer game, you’ll see that sportybet offers 3.55 for the home win while they give 3.50

They have a unique odds filter feature

powerbets odds filter

The odds filter feature allows you to filter the available events based on the odds range, odds format, and time range. For example, you can choose to display events with odds that fall within a specific range, such as 2.00 to 3.00, or you can choose to display the odds in a specific format, such as decimal or fractional. You can also use the odds filter feature to view events that are happening within a specific time range, such as events that are starting within the next 24 hours or events that are starting within the next 3 days.

User the odds filter unique to Powerebts and only bet on markets with odds exceeding 1.5. This way, you will always be in the green even after Caesar has had his rightful share. No more surprises like this guy here seeking clarification on the Facebook page, “you have not paid me well after win 667 you gave me 567” 😂

Buggy Jackpot

They claim to have a 6-game jackpot but there’s no other information about it on their website. At the time of this review, the jackpot page returned an error and I wasn’t able to assess it.

PowerBets Review Overall

I would give power bets a 3.5 star. They only have a handful of events and I couldn’t find smaller leagues. There’s a “lite” version of powerbets where they’ve stripped down on the already thinned out features.

Betting limits

There’s no maximum stake at Powerbets. However, they’ve made it clear that Kes 10 Million is the maximum pay-out they will process. They have free withdrawals and I always appreciate them.

Quality of odds

Their odds are slightly lower in comparison to other bookies. Their Basketabll odds were a little higher than Betlion’s and 22bets. Either way, there wasn’t a huge difference in the odds.
