Sports Betting

This is perhaps one of Helabet’s distinguishing factors. Players are treated to an array of sporting events from across the world. The betting types also vary and in one event you can find over 100 bets. 

The main bet that players participate in is the match-winner wager but you can also place a double chance bet or the Helabet total goals bet. Variety means players have multiple options to make money on the platform. Some of the main sports events on the platform include:

  • Football
  • Tennis
  • Basketball 
  • Ice Hockey
  • Volleyball
  • American football 
  • eSports 

Football is by far the most-watched sport in the country and this means it has the most bets. The betting company stands out by offering some of the top tournaments from across the world. 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

A great feature to check out in the sports section is the in-play wagers. 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, basketball to boxing. 

The in-play wagers can be quite 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. 

Virtual Sports

Virtual sports consist of games where a random number generator is used to predict the game results. The games are quite 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 
  • Betradar 
  • 1X2 Virtuals

You can wager on some interesting sports like horse racing, football, basketball, and dog racing. 

Online Casino

Helabet has redesigned its casino page to make it quite easy to navigate. Slots are categorized into different 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 some big names like Pragmatic play, Vivo gaming, XPG, 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 where you have a table and an attendant. 

Betting App

Having an app ensures you can keep betting on the move while still getting important 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 on the center part of the top banner and this 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 Helabet_ke.apk. 

It is our hope that since the mobile app is new steps are going to be taken to have it available on Google store and iOS. The app has most of the features on the desktop version and is quite easy to use. 

Banking Methods

Helabet offers users a wide choice of deposit/withdrawal methods. Kenya’s top mobile banking platforms – Safaricom and Airtel – are integrated into the betting site so you shouldn’t worry about the ease of transacting money. The company also offers  some international payment options such as:

  • VISA & MasterCard
  • Mobile Payments – M-Pesa
  • E-wallets – Perfect money 
  • Payments systems – Advcash & Nix money
  • Cryptocurrency – Litecoin, Bitcoin, Dogecoin, and tether

The minimum deposit on the platform is Kshs.1 and the maximum is Kshs. 100,000. Since Mpesa is the most used option we are going to show you how to deposit money on the platform. 

How to deposit with Mpesa

  1. Open the Mpesa icon on your phone 
  2. Go to “Lipa na Mpesa” option and choose Paybill option

Bonuses and Promotions

This is the area that the company distinguishes itself from the pack. Helabet offers its users such a bounty of bonuses that keeps them going even when they do not have much for deposits.

Terms & Conditions

Every bonus and promotion is subject to specific terms and conditions set by the operator. We recommend all players to read up on these terms and conditions to be fully aware of the requirements set. These requirements range from validity to wagering requirements and are specific to a particular promotion.

Responsible gaming

Helabet Kenya offers users a simple questionnaire to gauge whether one is becoming addicted to gambling or not. The questions are found under the responsible gaming section of their information page. The section is quite informative on the consequences of running a gaming addiction. 

You have important tips on how to reduce the risks of gambling addiction and the need not to make gambling a source of income. The company restates its policy of only allowing persons over the age of 18 years from making bets. According to the site, the company makes regular checks to authenticate the age of gamblers. 

You can control your betting activity bet emailing block@helabet.com or read more here.

Self Exclusion

The company gives its customers the option for voluntary self-exclusion. This feature allows the company to restrict the operation of the user account for up to six months. Once the account is closed it will remain that way until the expiry of the prescribed period. 

Stake Limit

Helabet also offers the option to limit the maximum amount of stake. Once you set this limit you cannot change it unless 24 hours have elapsed.

Customer Support

The Helabet customer care team is friendly and professional. The company has done a good job answering some FAQs on their site, but if you are not satisfied you can contact them via any of the following means:

Final words on Helabet Kenya

Helabet bonus offers are quite impressive as they give the customer the ability to make bets even on low deposit amounts. The company offers a user-friendly website that is very easy to navigate. We particularly liked the characteristic purple background color that boosts visibility. Users immediately know what is on offer the moment they log in to the site as the bonuses and promotions of the days are prominently displayed on the banners. 

The company responsible gaming section is quite informative with the questionnaire adding a personalized touch to someone who is struggling with a gaming addiction. The company has also taken proactive measures to curb the vice by allowing players to set a self-exclusion policy or deposit limits. 

However, we did not find any jackpots on the site which could have been a good addition to entice players to the betting platform.
