Having recently joined the Kenyan betting scene, Odibets stormed the bookies market with "extraordinary" betting experience. Owned by Kareco Holdings Limited, this betting company is licensed and monitored by the Kenyan Betting Control and Licensing Board (BCLB).

Having been launched in 2018, Odibets s rapidly creating a niche for itself by prioritizing mobile users, offering SMS betting, and focusing mainly on sports with loads of unique incentives for mobile bettors. The bookmaker has a user-friendly website, designed to offer a quality experience to all users, irrespective of the device they use when gambling. So does Odibets have more to offer than the average online bookie? Continue reading this review to find out.
Odibets makes its registration process very simple and possible to complete within a few minutes. Since the betting site's primary focus are mobile, players can open an account via SMS.
To register via SMS, send "ODI" to 29680.
A few minutes after sending this text, you will receive a confirmation SMS notifying you of your successful registration. You can then proceed to reply to the SMS with your password, which you can use to log into your account in the future. This password must be something unique but easy to remember in the future. Another confirmation SMS will be sent to you after this.
Another way to register on Odibets is by visiting the official website. With an internet-enabled laptop or smartphone, you can create an account by simply opening the Odibets' website, clicking the "Register Free" button, entering your mobile number and create a password of more than six characters. An SMS will be sent to your mobile line used to register, which will contain your unique registration PIN. You can then use this PIN to activate your account. Odibets only accepts players in Kenya; hence, you must have a Kenyan phone number to create an account with this bookmaker. On completion of your registration, your first free bet will be activated and offered to you. To change your login password in the future, you can refer to the instructions on the Odibets website.
Odibets has a welcome for all newly registered players. Newbies are guaranteed a free bet worth Ksh30. This is offered right after registration, and you do not need to make any deposits to receive this offer. Select the bet you want to place by clicking on the Menu button, enter the mobile number used at the point of registration and your password, and then proceed to place your bet by clicking "Submit Freebet".
Your account must be activated with your unique PIN within seven days of claiming your free bet, or you will automatically lose this offer.
Before claiming this bonus, we recommend you thoroughly read the terms and conditions on the Odibets website.
Also, the bookmaker will keep the initial stake of the free bet offered, and only the winnings of the wager will be awarded to the bettors. Players can select from any of the day's free bet games, by choosing any of the Home team win, draw or away team win (1x2) bet.
Odibets offer an uncommon Data Bundle bonus to all its registered customers. To claim this offer, you need to deposit and place bets above Kshs 49 on any single or multi-bet. All these after your registration has been completed. After your bet has been placed, you will automatically receive 7MB free data, seven free SMS, plus a chance to enter the Odibets daily draw. The daily draw gives you a chance to win 2GB worth of free data bundle. In the 2GB draw, winners will be picked randomly and according to the rules of the Odibets promotion.

Odibets promotions do not stop at Data Bundle and First Free Deposit reward. Customers also get a cashback reward for losing their first bet of the day. This reward offers you 50% of your stake if you lose a bet worth Kshs 30 and above. This refund will be offered in the form of bonus money, which means you can only use it to place another bet, not withdraw it immediately.
One interesting thing about this sportsbook is the several novel bonuses that spring up daily. So we recommend you to regularly check the Odibets website for new and exciting bonuses you can get to improve your betting experience.
Currently, Odibets offer its customers nine different sports to bet on. Not what we can call a healthy list of sports offers but enough to cover the popular sports market. Options on this list include Football, Basketball, Boxing, Ice Hockey, American Football, Cricket, Rugby, Handball and Volleyball. The sportsbook also compensates for its lack of many sports options by offering huge markets and submarkets. For example, the top football game of the day has about 117 markets with a versatile list of submarkets. With all the other sports included, you have up to 500 events you can bet on daily. This also includes Live Betting events.
We also discovered that betting margins are pretty high at Odibets; however, we don't consider it as the highest in the market. The bad news is that this bookmaker has a Kshs 1,000,000 limit per day. Some of the betting options offered on this platform include Asian Handicap, First team to score, to win either half, the first team to win, draw, and away team win, to name a few.
After creating your account, you will need to deposit into your account to place a bet. Odibets offer the M-Pes deposit method, and the bookmaker's Pay Bill number is 290680. You can deposit by simply using your registered mobile number. Go to the M-Pesa menu and choose the Lipa Na Mpesa option. Select the Pay Bill option and enter the Odibet Pay Bill number. In the Account Name field, enter ODI or your name. Input the amount you wish to deposit and you M-Pesa Pin and press send. A confirmation message will be sent to you by M-Pesa, and the amount deposited will reflect in your Odibets account.
For newly registered players, Odibets will refund the M-Pesa charge on your deposit and add it to your account.
Similar to depositing money, withdrawal takes a few easy steps as well. Visit the Odibets website and log into your user account. Go to the menu option and choose "withdraw" from the options offered on the drop-down menu. Proceed to fill in your first and last name and enter the amount you wish to withdraw from your account. Double-check the information provided and click on "request withdrawal". Your request will be processed instantly, and your winnings will be paid into your M-Pesa account. Odibets allow players to withdraw a minimum of Kshs 100 and a maximum of Kshs 1,000,000.
Odibets offer customer support mostly via social media platforms like Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. However, unlike most betting websites, Odibets customer support is not available via Live Chat or Email. On any of their social media platforms, players can get their questions answered via special mentions. However, if any player wants to contact the customer support privately, the Odibets customer support line is available at the bottom of the bookmaker's website. This line is reachable 24/7, and players can get their issues resolved by friendly, patient, and proactive support staff.
On the issue of security and reliability, Odibets is not only licensed to operate by BCLB (Betting Control and Licensing Board), the bookmaker's website has a comprehensive responsible gambling section to inform players about the risks of problem gambling. This bookie also gives players access to their betting history, which allows customers to keep an eye on how much they have spent on betting to avoid excessive gambling. Odibets surely has the long-term insight, considering their market strategy and betting services they provide. This is a betting site we recommend for players who are looking for a fresh platform to bet on sports.
