The 888bet Kenya Experience
Once a player needs to place a bet, they can use the bet slip window on the left side of the screen. This will display the bet count, total stake and total returns. Players can use the bet slip to place single and multi bets. To enhance prompt and efficient responses to customer queries, 888 is one of Kenya’s top sports betting sites to offer live chat in Kiswahili. This is quite nice as the majority of the residents speak the language.
Players can also try out other sporting bets like football, basketball, tennis, American football, and Rugby. What’s impressive is the sporting events can be sorted out by countries, which means more options of games to wager on.
888bet virtual sports collection consists of top football leagues from Kenya, England, Spain and Italy. In addition, you have one tournament – the African cup of Nations. Due to the short nature of the games, players can opt for various betting options like 1X2, correct score, HT/FT, and GG/NG. To top it off, there is an existing aviator multiplayer game.
The primary way to deposit funds to your 888bet Kenya account is through mobile money channels like Mpesa and Airtel. While this may seem limited, most bettors in Kenya are familiar with mobile money betting. The minimum deposit amount for 888 sports betting in Kenya is Kshs50, and the maximum is Kshs150,000.
How to deposit with Mpesa:
- Dial *334#
- Select Lipa Na Mpesa
- Select Pay Bill
- Enter Business number
- Enter 888 as the account number
- Enter amount
- Enter your Mpesa PIN and send
- Accept payment and wait for SMS confirmation
Withdrawals can be made through the same mobile money payment option used for deposits. The minimum withdrawal amount is Kshs50. Players should note that withdrawals lower than Kshs10,000 are automatic and immediate. At the same time, those above Kshs10,000 will need manual approval and may take longer to process.
Withdrawal limits are set by the mobile money platform the player is using. For example, Mpesa has a transaction limit of Kshs150,000 and a maximum limit of Kshs300,000. The same limits apply to Airtel money.
Bonuses and Promotions
While 888bet Kenya does not have a welcome bonus, there are plenty of bonuses tied to sports events that players can take advantage of. The Supa10, 2 in 1, multi-bonus bet and 2 up 1 are all meant to boost players’ winnings during football bets.
888bet supports responsible gambling in Kenya by only allowing persons over 18 years on their platform. The betting site uses various verification systems to ascertain the bettor’s age. In addition, 888bet Kenya performs regular training for their staff to help them recognize gambling addiction and offer relevant solutions.
Players have access to more proactive measures like deposit/loss limits that can be activated on request from the player. Furthermore, players with a gambling addiction can take advantage of self-exclusion policies for a day, week or month. During this period, 888bet Kenya will suspend all activities in the player’s account. A player can know whether the self-exclusion policy is for them by answering a questionnaire on the betting site page.
The fastest way to contact support is through the live chat feature. We found the live chat feature prompt and efficient, with a live agent available 24/7 to answer customer queries. Players can also contact 888bet in Kenya through the following:
