OdiBets Ups and Downs: Should You Choose It?


You are 100% likely to be familiar with OdiBets if you: first, canߴt imagine your life without sports; second, know how to turn sports into a pleasant hobby with a regular income; and third, permanently live in Kenya.

For several years now, this online betting platform has been a point of attraction for gambling enthusiasts in the region, and OdiBets WhatsApp contacts have been firmly fixed in the buddy lists of local users. 

In this article, we’ll save you the long hours you can spend thinking and investigating and summarize whether becoming an OdiBets customer is worth it.  

What Kind of Platform Is This?

To avoid being unsupported and not rush headlong to conclusions, letߴs first take a look at the platform and see what it actually offers.

When you type in the bookmakerߴs web address in the browser and get to the site, you are greeted with a nice and clear user interface. Thus, the bookie earns its first score for easy navigation and intuitiveness. 

Sports, live betting, casino, promotions, responsible gaming, FAQs, everything seems to be in place. Now, letߴs go through a common user path on the site.

Signing Up

Want to join the OdiBets club? The yellow “JOIN NOW” button in the upper right corner of the homepage will not go unnoticed. To sign up for the bookmaker, you must do the following:

  1. Specify your mobile phone number.
  2. Create and confirm your password.
  3. Add a referral code if you have one.
  4. Agree to the siteߴs Terms of Use.
  5. Affirm that you’re over the age of 18.


As soon as you register on the platform, you are free to put money into your OdiBets account. You can do this either directly on the site in the DEPOSIT section or via the M-PESA app on your phone by entering 290680 as the sportsbookߴs pay bill number.

Gaming Options

With money in your OdiBets wallet, you can safely choose your favorite game and place wagers. Luckily, the site has a lot to offer regarding gambling varieties. Here are just some of them:

Slot machines
Drops & Wins
Table games


Your M-PESA app will come in handy again when itߴs time to pick up your winnings from the platform. The withdrawal path is as clear and intuitive as the deposit.

You can pull out any amount between 100 KES and 1,000,000 KES per ticket. The transaction is split-second but may include respective carrier fees.

What Might Attract You to the Site?

So, what can serve as the siteߴs magnets to attract potential customers? Letߴs shine a light on each of them.

In-Play Betting

With ODI Live, you donߴt have to worry if you come to the site when the match has already started. You can watch the event and place your stakes as the game progresses—be it a real-time football, tennis, or volleyball competition or a Сounter-Strike tournament. 

SMS Betting

Although not every bookmaker provides this feature, many players do love and appreciate it. The OdiBets SMS betting is pretty simple. After registering, you need to text “ODI” to 29680 and then send your forecast to the same short code with a stake of between 1 KES and 50,000 KES.

Mobile Experience

The owners of Android devices will be the ones to enjoy the gambling platform the most. The ODI app is a lightweight mobile application taking up only 2.8MB and running quickly as a flash. As a generous incentive, you can get a 50/= bonus free bet for downloading the app.

Promo Offers

The bookie never stops rewarding its followers—whether newcomers or oldtimers—giving away bonuses left and right. The offers comprise the first deposit of the day bonus, the happy hour promo, 30% cash back, the early bird bonus, and much more.

What Else Is There?

Of course, the list of OdiBets benefits does not end there. Potential customers might also be magnetized by such perks as a

  • Low deposit threshold
  • Lite website version
  • Filtering facilitating search
  • 24-hour technical support
  • Ability to print matches

What Is Missing From the Site?

Everyone knows that any online betting site is not without flaws. So letߴs pour some rain on the OdiBetsߴ parade.

First off, the ODI app is currently unavailable for Apple devices. So, the only chance iPhone users can access the gaming platform is via the siteߴs mobile version. 

Modesty in payment methods is another point that some players will attribute to the companyߴs drawbacks. M-PESA is convenient, but what about the other options? Thus, crypto owners wouldߴt mind depositing and withdrawing funds using their crypto wallets. 

Also, some punters may be upset not to see the live chat feature on the site. This is a highly accessible way of communication that helps solve many issues there and then.

Bottom Line

Following the narrativeߴs logic, letߴs draw a line under OdiBets ups and downs and summarize whether the company is worth choosing.

The platformߴs creators certainly took care that the user was comfortable and profitable to spend time on it. Comfort begins with a simple online registration form and continues up to the easy SMS withdrawal.

At almost every step, players will find enticing bonuses and delicious rewards; the main thing is to remember to check the list of available promos and participate in them.

Although limitations in mobile and payment options may slightly discourage some gamblers, they have little impact on the overall impression of the bookie. 

So, with a considerable prevalence of pros over cons, the betting site is more than worth using.
