Betika is a Kenyan-based sports betting operator that was launched in 2016. It is owned by Shop and Deliver Limited, which is licensed by the Kenyan Betting Control and Licensing Board and registered for gambling in African countries, including Ethiopia. In our review of Betika Ethiopia, we will tell you all you need to know about opening an account, placing bets, and making withdrawals on this site.
Betika’s website has a standard layout, with the latest events occupying the central part of the screen, choice of markets on the left, and betslip on the right. In the upper right corner of the screen, you will see the login and registration options. The signup process is easy and requires submitting only a valid phone number and creating a password.
After a simple verification through a code sent via SMS, your account is set up. There is no need to provide any ID or other documents at the time of registration. You can also opt for a Telegram login; simply send a message to the Betika team, and they will handle the sign-up process.
Deposits and Withdrawals
To make a deposit at Betika Ethiopia, log in to your account and click on Deposit. You will find four mobile options available for deposits: CBE-Birr, Amole, Hellocash, and M-Birr. Enter the amount you’d like to deposit and then select one of the payments methods.
Once you submit the deposit, you will receive a unique code. Depending on the method you’ve selected, you will receive further instructions on how to confirm the code by calling a phone number.
To withdraw funds, simply select the amount you wish to deposit and your preferred payment method. You should receive a text message confirmation that your money has been transferred.
Bonuses and Promotions
All new customers who register with Betika are eligible for a 20 Birr registration bonus. In order to cash out the bonus, you need to play it through 5x on a minimum of three selections, and the total odds for the selections must be at least 1.95.
Betika also offers a 100% deposit match welcome bonus. To qualify, you need to deposit at least 10 Birr (up to 10 000 Birr). The rollover requirement is 5x the bonus amount within 15 days, and it needs to be used on a minimum of three selections, with the total odds for the selections at least 1.95. The deposit is not subject to rollover, but it will remain unavailable until the bonus rollover has been completed. Unfortunately, the bonus can’t be used on live events.
Daily and Weekly Jackpots
Betika also holds a number of ongoing promotions that you can participate in at any time. There are two daily jackpots – the 8 Games Jackpot and the 9 Games jackpot as well as a weekly jackpot. To participate in the 8 Games Daily Jackpot, place a 10 Birr bet on eight games for a chance to be among the winners who will get a share of a 20,000 Birr prize. To enter the 9 Games Daily Jackpot, place a bet of 20 Birr on nine games and you can be one of the lucky winners who will share a 100,000 Birr prize.
The Weekly Jackpot offers a 1,500,000 Birr prize. To take part in the tournament, place a 10 Birr bet on 13 pre-selected football events that will kick off on the weekend. When the final game from the jackpot list is over, those who have predicted correctly all 13 games will receive a share of the jackpot prize. There are also bonuses for 12/13 and 11/13 correct predictions.
