Wazibet is a bookie that offers you a wide range of betting possibilities on the sport betting market. With over ten games to choose from, you are unlikely to miss matches to wager on. Boosted odds and top picks have also been made available for punters to choose. The sportsbook also has in its website a livescore and a results page among other products available.
Wazibet at a glance
This bookie is owned by silicon solutions limited who are the provider of the website and have been licenced by BCLB to offer its gambling services. Its licence registration number is 0000118. Wazibet website outlook bears some resemblance to the now defunct betin which was very popular in kenya before new regulations were enacted.
- New Users get an entry bonus of about 25 kes to place bets with the sportsbook.
- Registration process is simple.
- Boosted odds are available
- The bookie has made hot picks available to the punters at the home page making it easy to make bets.
- Livescore of results is available. Players can now track their games directly from the site without having to search for options from third parties.
- Locating live matches is complicated because you have to actually know their country and leagues and search for them by selecting the country and league your desired match is in.
The bookie should have made it easier by simply having all the live games displayed in categories for ease of location. Most punters who prefer live betting matches have no idea of the league or even the country in which the games are located and are only interested in match statistics during these live games.
- The jackpot is not available. Most kenyan punters like to toy with the idea of winning big and having a jackpot among the products offered automatically increases traffic to their site.
- The desktop version of the site occupies just about half of the screen. This has made the contents of the site to be compressed to the point of some words being illegible.
As is with almost all bookies in kenya, Mpesa is the exclusive payment platform authorised by the bookie for the obvious reasons. The process of refilling your wazibet account is as simple as it gets. A player only requires to input the amount to deposit after clicking the account option at the top of the website while the rest of the process is automated to only prompt you for the mpesa service pin and you are good to go.
As for the withdrawal the same process applies once more by inputting the amount one wants to withdraw. The amount will be credited to your mpesa account.
Wazibet customer service
To get registered on wazibet click on the ‘register’ icon and you will be prompted to input your safaricom number and a password. You will then be requested to verify your number by inserting a code sent to your phone and that is all you require to get into the system and start placing bets.
To get in contact with wazibet customer support desk, one can use the email contacts provided at the bottom of the website, also you can opt to call them using the numbers provided. There was no live chat option available at the site as is with the current trends with bookies that intend to stay at the top of the game.
A player can also contact the bookies representatives through facebook, twitter or instagram.
You can see Wambui, a punter who was clearly satisfied with the payment processing by the bookie leaving a positive note on a facebook post by the bookie.
You can easily tell the bookie has not been in the game for a very long time judging by the number of followers it has accumulated.
This sportsbook has a desktop version and a mobile version of the website available. But the two versions defer to such an extent that it feels like the two versions are different bookies. The mobile version is by far the best of the two in my opinion.(image of the 2 versions).
This is a desktop version of the site. Notice how it contrasts with the mobile version below
On the website version, you can access games of your choice by clicking on the sports menu and choosing the sport of your choice. You can also access the markets of your choice right from the menu next to the sports menu. For the new players who would like to access their entry promo, just click on the free bet option on the top right corner. This free 25 kes can only be used to place a bet on a pre selected match by the bookie.
I personally loved the boosted odds this bookie provided on the day of this review. It’s quite clear Arsenal and Liverpool is a huge fixture. Having a boosted odd that particular match will definitely have you placing your money where your mouth is.(image)
Bonuses and promotions
The bookie offers its new players an entry bonus of 25 kes that can be used regardless of whether you deposit or not. As long as you are registered you can place a bet with them.
Wazibet the good
The bookie has no stringent restrictions on how their entry promo is used. No initial deposit required to be able to qualify for entry promo
Payment procedures are very simplified.
Customer service is not up to standard.
Complicated live betting option. Are live games even available?
Complex search filter.
Quality of odds
Below average odds quality. 1.78 for under 150.5 in a basketball game that is likely to have combined 200 points is too low and too unattractive to place a bet on.
The lowest amount a player is allowed to deposit or make a withdrawal is 10 kes. The maximum one can deposit and withdraw on the other hand has been capped at 10,000 kes
Mobile version of wazibet is quite efficient. Mobile app however is not available.
For the betting pundits and new players trooping into wazibet to place bets, I would recommend using the mobile version instead of the desktop. The boosted odds available at the site each day is also something worth checking out. It could be your winning ticket. The absence of jackpot is a big letdown to the many players who routinely place jackpot bets alongside their other bets. The search filter too can also do with a restructure to make location of games a little bit easier.
I am bent towards awarding this bookie 3.5 fstars. The desktop site definitely needs to be restructured and the search options reviewed to make it easier for punters to locate matches, especially the live games. I personally had a hard time finding live matches to wager on and to be honest, I was not able to find a single game.
Is live betting available at wazibet?
There is a live option at the mobile website version but cannot seem to find live matches whatsoever. On the desktop version
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.
