Kenyan gamblers have been getting a lot of options when it comes to betting sites in the last couple of years. It’s safe to say that not all of them are trustworthy which is why we review only the best operators in Kenya. Kwikbet has been on the market for several years now and has proven to be a well-respected operator. In this article, we will cover everything you need to know about this operator. We will review details that span from history and website design to payment methods, bonuses/promotions, and how to register.
Over the last decade, online gambling became extremely popular in Kenya. Kwikbet is one of those modern operators that started its operation in 2014. When you visit their sportsbook, you will notice that they have taken inspiration from some of the best operators in the world. They are offering features that can’t be found at other Kenyan operators. At the moment, Kwikbet is managed by a company known as SOLAMI limited. It’s a company that’s headquartered in Kenya. It’s important to note that the operator is licensed by the BCBL of Kenya. They are known as one of the strictest gambling commissions in the world which means that the Kenyan government keeps the platform under scrutiny.
Having such a license means that this operator follows the BLCB’s rules and regulations strictly. Also, the customers are safe and protected as the operator is unable to take advantage of them. However, the operator didn’t stop there when it came to customer safety. The website has security features that are protected by 128-bit SSL encryption. It’s the same type of encryption that’s used by all the biggest names in the gambling industry. It guarantees that all customer information and payment details will be protected at all times.
Kwikbet Website Design
One of the best things about Kwikbet is how simple and user-friendly its website is. It has a mostly black and white background with purple elements all around it. Both new and experienced gamblers will have no problem navigating the site because everything is straightforward. The main menu is right at the top and it holds all the important buttons. From there, players can go through the sports and live sports section, the jackpots, social media as well as the mobile app. You can access the Kwik league too. The website is loaded with all the necessary information you need to make informed bets without having to leave the page.
On the left side, players will be able to see all the available sports as well as the markets and odds that are available for those sports. The bet slip is on the right side of the website. Every time you click on a bet, it will be added to your Kwikbet bet slip. Lastly, the buttons to register and log in on the website can be found in the top right corner. On the other hand, all the important information about the operator and how they conduct their business can be found at the bottom of the page.
While we are talking about the website, we need to mention the mobile app that’s available to all players. The Kwikbet app looks good and is very straightforward, just like the website. It holds all the sports and betting markets so you can place regular and live bets from anywhere. However, at the moment, the app is only available on Android but the operator promises that an iOS version is coming soon.
When Kwikbet began its operation, its offer included only five sports. However, that changed recently and they are now a full-fledged sportsbook. Their betting offer includes:
- Football (Soccer)
- Rugby Union
- Formula 1
- American Football
- Aussie Rules
- Ice Hockey
- Gaelic Hurling
- Ski Jumping
- Motorcycle Racing
- Stock Car Racing
When it comes to betting markets, they have the most popular ones. For instance, 1×2, over/under, odd/even, both teams to score, double chance, GG, and more. However, most sports are limited to markets from the best or most well-known leagues in the world. When it comes to football (soccer) betting which is the most popular sport in the world, customers will be able to find all their favourite markets.
Additionally, Kwikbet offers a virtual football league which is known as the Kwik league. Players can access it through the main menu. The idea is to build your dream team and play to win. The odds are low but you can end up winning larger amounts if you approach the league with a proper plan. In the end, we have to mention the betting limits on the website. The minimum amount you can deposit on the account is 10 KSH while the maximum is 140,000 KSH. You can large but you can’t go over 140,000 KSH in a day.
When Kwikbet started its operation, it didn’t have a live betting section. However, modern sportsbooks can’t succeed without a live option. All the big names in the industry prosper through their live betting options so Kwikbet had to add the option to their website. They added a live betting section recently and their popularity as an operator rose immediately. At the moment, they only have five sports options in the live section but we hope that will increase in the future. Players can set live bets on football, basketball, cricket, tennis, and e-games.
Online casinos are very popular in Kenya at the moment. Hundreds of gambling operators added online casinos to their websites just so they can catch the popularity train. However, Kwikbet is still not one of those companies. Recently, they added a live betting section but still nothing about an online casino. To progress further into the gambling world, they will have to add a casino section eventually. We hope that happens sooner rather than later. Once it happens, we will be happy to review the games that they will offer at the casino.
Kwikbet Bonuses & Promotions
Kwikbet doesn’t have anything spectacular when it comes to bonuses and promotions. However, they do offer a little something for both new and existing customers. They even have a VIP section for their most loyal customers. Below, we will explain all the bonuses and promotions offered by this website.
This is a rather new bonus for the Kwikbet sportsbook but we are glad that they added it to their portfolio. The easiest way to attract new customers is by offering them a welcome bonus. On this website, players can get a 100% match bonus with a minimum deposit of 50 KSH. The maximum bonus amount that can be won through this bonus is 5,000 KSH.
There are several promotions that players can enjoy on top of the welcome bonus we explained above. The first promotion is called Super Boosts. This promotion gives players an opportunity to boost the odds on their bet slip thus boosting the possible win. All a player needs to do is to make a selection and then click the “Price Boost” button. This can be done on a single event or one of the selections in a multi-bet. Keep in mind that this bonus won’t work if you cash out before the events are over. Once you click cash-out even if you used the Price Boost, the bet slip will just go back to the original amount. The Price Boost can be used only once per event.
Happy Monday Cashback
As the name suggests, this is a simple promotion that works only on a Monday. As things stand right now, this promotion is two-fold. First, if you placed a bet during the weekend, you get a chance to get a cashback of up to 2,000 KES. The other way it works is if you placed a multi-bet and your stake was at least 1,000 and you lost the bet because only one selection was wrong, you will get your stake back.
Kwikbet FPL Fantasy
This promotion is very simple because it’s connected to the Fantasy Premier League. Simply join the FPL Fantasy league on Kwikbet and become a part of this promotion. There are tons of prizes awarded every week to the players who had the most points during the FPL weekend. Everyone can win cash prizes and giveaways. However, that’s not all because the winner of the FPL league gets a major prize at the end of the season. The person who finishes the Premier League season with the most points in the fantasy league will win a full paid trip for a derby match of his favourite team and up to 50,000 KES worth of merchandise.
Omoka Jackpot Bonus
The last promotion that Kwikbet has is a jackpot that can go up to 500,000 KES. Each week, the website selects 9 matches and players can make predictions on those matches. The player who gets all 9 correct can win the Jackpot Prize which is 500,000. However, there are also awards if 7 or 8 of your predictions are correct. To be able to take advantage of this promotion a player needs to be registered on the website and needs to have at least 20 KES in his account.
The last thing we will review in this section is the VIP program run by Kwikbet. The most loyal customers can apply for VIP status and if they deserve it, the operator will reward them. One of the easiest ways to become a VIP is to deposit at least 2,000 KES and just keep on playing on the website. When that happens, Kwikbet will put you in the VIP section right away. VIP members get a dedicated customer support agent, unique promotions and rewards, and a 20% monthly cashback.
Kwikbet Payment Methods
Just like most Kenyan operators, M-Pesa is the only way to deposit and withdraw on the Kwikbet website. At the moment, this can be done in two ways, through the website or your mobile. The first way is very simple, click the Deposit button on the website and enter the amount you want to deposit. You will then receive an SMS asking for a confirmation from your M-Pesa account. The other option is more complicated but you can do it through your phone.
- Go to the M-PESA Menu on your phone
- Select “Lipa na M-Pesa”
- Select Pay Bill
- Enter 290028 as the Business Number
- Enter KWIKBET as ACCOUNT NUMBER or leave it blank and proceed
- Write the amount (No Commas) For instance: 200
- Enter your M-Pesa PIN and send
- You will receive an SMS confirming the transaction
How to Withdraw from Kwikbet?
the withdrawal process is similar to the deposit process. There are two ways to do it, through your phone or the website. The first way is simple, send an SMS to 29028 with the message “W#Amount”. Remember to use the same phone number that you associated with your Kwikbet account. The 2nd way of making withdrawals is as follows:
- Go to kwikbet.co.ke
- Click on Login
- Enter your username (phone number) and password
- Click on “Withdraw” at the top right of the screen
- If requested, enter your first and last names in the fields provided
- Enter the amount you wish to withdraw (minimum 50)
- Select “Request Withdrawal“
Withdrawal requests are handled all the time at Kwikbet and they are processed instantly. The minimum amount you can withdraw is 50 KSH while the maximum amount is 500,000 KSH. Keep in mind that there will be additional carrier fees when the withdrawal request is handled.
The customer support section has been handled in a fantastic way at Kwikbet. The first way of getting help is through the FAQ section. This section has the answers to the most commonly asked questions. If that’s not enough, players can contact the customer support agents through the 24/7 live chat feature. Using this method is the fastest way of getting an answer. However, there are other ways of contacting the support agents. If it’s an urgent problem, players can simply call the operator. If it’s something that can wait, players can take the e-mail approach. Thе suрроrt аgеnts аt Kwik Bеt аrе wеll-trаinеd аnd рridе thеmsеlvеs in finding quiсk sоlutiоns tо аll yоur рrоblеms.
We have to mention that players can get a hold of customer support through WhatsApp as well.
Just like with deposits and withdrawals, players have two options when it comes to creating an account on the Kwikbet website. Below, we will explain both ways of creating an account.
How to Register in Kwikbet?
The quickest way for Kwikbet to register is through an SMS. Simply send an SMS with the message KWIKBET to 29028. Depending on the mobile service you are using, there could be additional charges. Once your account is set, you will receive an SMS that will confirm your registration.
The other way of creating an account is through the website. Follow these steps and your account will be ready to go within minutes:
- Open a new browser on your phone.
- Key in the company website https://www.kwikbet.co.ke/
- On the far-right corner, click on ‘Join Now.
- Fill in your mobile phone number.
- Fill in your preferred password and repeat it.
- Accept the “Terms and Conditions”.
- Click on the “I’m over 18 years of age” button
- Click on “Register”.
- You’ll receive a confirmation code via SMS and you need to enter that code on the website to activate the account.
- Once your account is active, make a deposit and place your bets.
To conclude, Kwikbet is a great platform that’s been on the market since 2014. They recently added a live betting section which was a massive success. However, the fact that they are still not offering an online casino is a problem for a lot of players. Since what we have here is a Kenyan platform aimed at Kenyan customers, we can safely say that the operator has done their job very well. They are limited when it comes to deposits and withdrawals but for Kenyan customers, using M-Pesa is simple and another method is not needed.
Nevertheless, by getting more options, especially if those options are crypto coins, Kwikbet will attract more customers to their website. All in all, there are some bad sides which every platform has. Experienced players won’t mind these little mistakes because they don’t take anything from the betting experience. The operator has nice bonuses and promotions, a great customer support team, and is a very safe and secure company since they are licensed by the Kenyan government. There are certain things that they should fix and they will probably do exactly that in the future. Apart from that, Kwikbet is still a new gambling operator that can only go up from where they are now.
