Odibets is one of the most talked about betting websites in Kenya despite setting up shop just a little over 8 months ago. It could be because of the meme-worthy billboards strawn all over capital, but they’re quite a spectacle.
The betting platform offers today’s football games to avid soccer fans as well as live games with boosted odds in various sports like basketball, tennis, boxing, among others.
Odibets offers what they generally refer to as the ODI LEAGUE; a collection of virtual football games modelled on the English Premier League that kenyans love. This article is a short review of Odibets; its merits and demerits- as how it compares with other betting websites in Kenya.
Easy to use
Odibets is the FASTEST and simplest betting website in Kenya. The website is mobile-first with an easy navigation that allows users to navigate with ease to different points of interest. Compared to many of its competitors this website is light.
This means that gamblers using Odibets who use fewer internet bundles to place their bets. In a speed comparison test on GTMetrix against top players like sportpesa, betin and betika, Odibets is the fastest website in Kenya that consumes the lowest amount of bundles.
We did a little digging and discovered that the company provides the best odds in Kenya. However, we noted for fun that odds are relative. Odds tend to move up and down because competition is very adaptive. Nevertheless, they have a constant boosted odds feature which ensures that the gambler wins more from every boosted event.
Free bet feature
Odibets is the only betting websites in Kenya offering free bets. Previously, Betpawa was the only Kenyan betting company offering free bets. In my opinion, odibets copied the free bet model from betpawa. Customers can get their winnings without depositing on the website.
Bonuses and OFFERS
There is no day you will fail to find an offer on Odibets. They have multibet offers and insurance on first bets. This means that they boost your winnings on certain odds. They also give you your stake back when you lose every first bet. In addition, they also offer deposit fees chargeback. This makes their deposit fees to be almost FREE.
1 Bob Stake
Odibets allows gamblers to bet for as little as 1 bob. In a country which boasts of over 35% youth unemployment and an infatuation with the EPL, this is a good thing. When times are hard and your research is on point, why not bet for a shilling? This is a good feature, right?
Odibets is 100% Kenyan. Its parent company Kareco Holdings which is 100% Kenyan according to our research.
Sponsors Mathare United
Odibets is currently, the official sponsor of a local premier league side, Mathare United having signed them up for over 60 million. This is very high considering that not many gambling companies are as generous considering they are one of the few companies supporting local football.
Their Facebook page also reveals their ambitious plan to kit more than 35,000 youths around the country with sports kits to help with sports at the grassroots. They also use a lot of locals Kenyans in their adverts and recently sponsored the KOT 5 aside tournament a fun event for kenyans who play leisure football.
Absence of a mobile app
Punters love their betting apps. When you go to an online betting website, it might be tedious to type the URL in the browser all the time. Odibets doesn’t have an app yet. But we are confident when they come up with one in good time.
