Launched Kenya in 2015 and with foreign parents you would expect Betway to struggle in the Kenyan markets. Well, it doesn’t. Just like a new baby wins over the hearts of those she meets so does Betway. Its trick being few bets-maximum-possible-winning conversion technique, and an experience in other tempestuous African waters. The 2015 Ksh8.3 million 3 winner win made it break Kenyan records having only been in the market for less than year. Betway also mastered the art of wide array of markets making them flexible to the bettor’s suitable custom.

Impressively, Betway has an IOS and Android phone app. Maybe it has to do with its international genes, maybe not. The app layout is as sleek and aesthetic as the PC layout. Almost every other important function can be done and accessed in the app, Live streaming included. Convenient, easy on the bundles and of course, practical, app betting is the next sure step for all betting sites, and Betway is and shall be a step ahead in this field.
- Mobile Website
Besides a smaller screen and the settings notification that the site is in mobile version nothing is at all different between the two. It doesn’t load that much and the fine architecture is as a familiar sleek. Unlike most sites that don’t automatically configure to the screen size, Betway’s mobile version website is almost like the app.
- SMS Betting
All operations, and by all I mean in terms of basics, are available at a charge of 1Ksh. They include registering, fixture list, top games, betting, checking balance and withdrawing. Multibets are possible and the process isn’t at all complicated.
Sportradar Integrity Services is behind Betway’s live betting site. Streaming is pretty good though. So is the display. But like Sportpesa, newbies will need a lecture on how to actually place a bet. Live betting odds and dynamics, like the rest of the pre-match, are exceptional. Events change as fast as they happen and payout conversion is classic Betway.
Mpesa is the only supported mode of mobile network transfer in Betway, but again, almost everyone has one. And those without it will cost you less to acquire one than the money you are willing to wager. You can also deposit money into your online account using a voucher.
