Very Good

Advantages and disadvantages

  • excellent sportsbook with many betting options
  • very good live betting offer
  • fair odds
  • lack of payment options as only Mpesa is available


  • Betting Control and Licensing Board (BCLB)

Despite being a relatively recent addition to the market, we believe that Betafriq has the potential to soon rank among the best betting sites in Kenya.

The main reason why we think this bookie will establish itself in the Kenyan betting market is the sportsbook, which is incredibly comprehensive and offers a rich variety in sports, competitions and events as well as betting markets. In addition to that, the live betting offer is excellent, with over 100 live betting opportunities at any given time.

In our test, we have calculated an odds payout rate of around 94% for a cross selection of sporting events, which is very fair.

Furthermore, the bookie's offer extends beyond sports betting and also offers a great variety of casino games as well as crash games including the highly popular Aviator game by Spribe.

If we had to criticize anything, it would probably be the lack of alternatives to Mpesa when it comes to payment methods and the fact that customer support is only available via a hotline and whatsapp.

The minimum amount to get the 100% bonus is 100 KES, and the bonus will be credited to your account unless you tick the box "I do not want any bonuses" when making your first deposit.

To cash out on the bonus, you have to wager the bonus credits 5 times in accumulator bets with at least three selections. At least three selections in each acca bet must have odds of 1.40 or higher. For this, we highly recommend using our free multi bet tips in order to redeem your Betafriq bonus, as you only have seven days to wager the bonus credits. If you fail to fulfil all necessary turnover conditions, you will lose the bonus.
