AfricaBet is one of the most popular physical betting houses in Zimbabwe. However, it also has two physical betting departments in Lusaka, Zambia.
This bookie’s online platform is full of interesting and non-standard functions. For example, the betting operator offers an Android app, from where every punter can check out the progress of his or her bet slip.
This bookmaker partners with one of the biggest sport Medias in Africa – SuperSport – and there’s even a link that leads to the sports media on the bookie’s home page menu. Thanks to this, you will always have an access – with one click only – to hundreds of sport news per day. If you doubt whether to place a bet on any match in this bookie, just switch to the sports media website and c heck out the news regarding both of the playing teams to get a hint for your prediction.
The other great betting options, besides the sport betting category, is the set of games in the category called Prerecorded & Virtual Games where you can watch and place a bet on computer-simulated matches with your favourite teams. Except for football matches in the virtual European league, the category allows you to place bets on contestants with horses, motorcycles and hounds. In our opinion, though, the quality of the video in the virtual sports is too low and this is the main thing that entertains the punters who actually bet on virtual sports.
Bets on sport events
If you don’t like this betting operator’s virtual sports, either, you can freely stick to the real sports where you will never get bored because of the endless list of available markets to choose from.
AfricaBet offers you bets on volleyball, snooker, rugby, hockey, basketball, futsal, cricket, baseball, American football and many other sport types, but by all means, the most active categories are those with matches from the tennis and football world. And while every bookie basically counts on football bets, the bookies from Zambia that take care of the tennis fans so well are really few. Here, in AfricaBet and in very few places on the web we can see bets on ITF tennis tournaments, which as tennis lovers know, are the lowest levels in the tennis tournaments.
While the bookmaker’s pre-match program is richer in content and stronger in some manners, while also weaker in others, we can be confident for the overall positive side of the live betting category. The live betting program can compete to the offers provided by the multimillionaires among the European betting houses as AfricaBet offers all types of matches and sport events. Regardless whether it comes for some truly boring match from the first phases of an ITF tournament or for a football match between teams from the amateur Tercera division, the betting operator offers live bets, including some detailed comments and statistics in real time.
AfricaBet mobile app download
We have already mentioned that this African betting company has an Android app, but via this app punters can only check out their bet slips, but not placing bets.
In order to place a bet via a mobile device you should use the mobile website browser version which is compatible to any browser. This version includes all the sport bets from the desktop version, but unfortunately, it still does not support any virtual sports. We have already reached the conclusion that the virtual sports in this bookie aren’t so amazing at all, so we would consider AfricaBet mobile website version fully functional.
Registration + funding account
Every citizen from Zambia who is of a legal age for online gambling is eligible to open a playing account in AfricaBet. The registration process takes comparatively long time and it includes three stages – a stage for filling in all the personal details, a stage for filling in some data as to the playing account, as well as a playing account for identity confirmation. The most important step that comes right after this account opening process is the depositing step. Speaking of which, you can make a deposit in AfricaBet via bank transfer.
Bonuses and promotions
At the moment we are writing this review, AfricaBet’s promotional pages are empty, but the company promises to start offering its customers some bonuses and to be more specific, the following bonuses: new customer bonus, refer-a-friend program and cash back of the lost money with some special requirements.
Customer support service
By excluding the obvious way for receiving proper customer support – visiting any of the two physical departments in Lusaka (one of them is in the Downtown Mall, while the other one – in Kalingalinga) – there are other cool options for remote sport, too:
