The Helabet Kenya Experience
Football is by far the most-watched sport in the country, meaning it has the most bets. The betting company stands out by offering some of the top tournaments worldwide. You will have some big leagues, such as;
- English Premier League
- UEFA Championship League
- La Liga
- Cricket matches like Super Mash, Big Bash League and Momentum One Day cup
- Local leagues like the Kenya Premier League
The in-play wagers are a great feature to check out in the sports section. These operate a bit differently than the pre-game matches in that you wager for games that have already started and are live. Helabet has plenty of sports to wager on, ranging from football, tennis, and basketball to boxing.
The in-play wagers can be profitable once you have information on the players and teams. You access the in-play section by clicking “live” on the Helabet site. Note the betting options for the in-play sports are similar to the regular ones and consist of a mix of final score or total goals bets.
Helabet has redesigned its casino page to make it relatively easy to navigate. Slots are categorized into sections like All, New, Favorite, Popular, Jackpot, and Drops and Wins. This makes it very easy to find a slot game you like. Some of the popular games on the site include;
- Miss Cherry fruits
- Buffalo Trail
- Fruit factory
- Juicy fruits
- Zorro wild heart
- Thor of Asgard
The casino section is powered by big names like Pragmatic Play, Vivo gaming, XPG, and Lucky streak, among others. Like slot games, you have easy-to-access categories like roulette, blackjack, poker, baccarat, and speeds. You can wager at a live casino with a table and an attendant.
Virtual sports consist of games with a random number generator to predict the game results. The games are exciting as they consist of short gameplays of up to 5 minutes, which can help curb the monotony from regular games. You also do not have to wait for a scheduled match to make a bet; virtual sports are available at any time of the day.
Helabet has an impressive portfolio of virtual games from some of the top developers in the market, such as:
- Golden Race
- Virtual Generation
- 1X2 Virtuals
You can wager on stimulating sports like horse racing, football, basketball, and dog racing.
Having an app ensures you can keep betting on the move while still getting meaningful live updates on games you have wagered on. Helabet has an easy-to-use app that you can download on the Helabet.co.ke site.
You will find the download app in the center of the top banner, which directs you to another page. Something interesting about the Helabet app is that it is only available for download for Android phones. Clicking the app icon will prompt you to download the apk.
Since the mobile app is new, we hope steps will be taken to have it available on the Google store and iOS. The app has most of the features on the desktop version and is relatively easy to use.
