Top Betting Apps in Kenya

Bookmakers have been reporting a huge growth of the placed mobile bets recently, which has led to the development of apps and light mobile website versions. Thanks to them we receive a limitless access to the platforms, place bets on favorite sports disciplines and manage the active bet slips regardless of where we are. On our platform you will find out which bookmakers have developed apps for Android, iOS and Windows Phone, as well as whether they are different from the desktop betting websites.

Mobile apps for Android

Most of the online bookmakers that operate in Kenya have new and high-tech apps for Android. They require a device that runs on a version later than 4.4 to be downloaded and to let you have a faultless experience.

It is not good news to know that you will not be able to find a betting in Google Play. This is why you will have to visit the operator’s website through a mobile web browser and to download the installation apk file.

Follow the instructions to get the desired sports betting app:

  1. Allow the download of software products from unknown sources (Settings->Security)
  2. Visit the bookmaker’s mobile website
  3. In the menu or in the footer you will find a link to download the apk file
  4. Follow the steps for the application installation
  5. Once the program is installed you will receive an icon on your device home screen

iPhone and iPad sports betting apps

iOS holds a smaller market share in Kenya, but despite of this there are operators that provide intuitive apps for iPad and iPhone. They can be directly downloaded via App Store and installed for less than a second.

To find o9ut whether the bookie has an iOS app you can use the search field. In the Apple’s official app store there’s a list with information about the program – languages, date of release, which versions of iOS supports it, etc. Besides, you will also find comments and rating about the gambling application that are added by other customers.

Mobile version VS mobile app

All bookies have mobile versions that are compatible with devices running on different operating systems and display sizes. They provide a smaller prototype of the official desktop version and consist of the most necessary services for faultless betting experience. You can register and deposit funds, claim for a withdrawal and participate in the active lotto games.

Then, what’s the difference between the browser and the app version?

The mobile versions require using a web browser and entering login data credentials every time you want to enter your account. The sessions are stored in a short period. Besides, the websites spend more data traffic.

The apps are extremely useful as they let you enter the bookie directly from your device home screen. You receive notifications in case of any important situation such as a score, a penalty, red or yellow card. In addition to these, you are also rewarded with generous mobile bonuses.

Payment methods trough a phone

In the mobile bookies in Kenya deposits ranging from 10 to 10 000 KES are accepted and they are not charged with any fees. The payments are processed immediately and can be used for placing bets. When your profits reach an amount of at least 50 KES you get the right for a withdrawal, but before that it is significant for you to verify your account and to have met all the bonus wagering requirements.

There are different payment methods through a phone, but the most preferred ones among them are the following:

  • Debit and credit cards
  • AIRTEL
  • Safaricom

5 important tips for choosing a mobile app

  1. Make sure that the app is compatible with your mobile operating system
  2. Check out if all the sports bets and casino games from the desktop version are available in the app, too
  3. Find out what payment methods and withdrawal processing time are
  4. See if there’s a Cash Out function to manage and close your bets
  5. Search for opinions left by other customers about the program and its pros and cons
