Bravo Betting

BravoBet, also known as simply Bravo or BetBravo, is a betting service which operates a number of betting shops in Ethiopia and recently launched an online platform as well. In our review, we will examine the online site to give you all the information you need on bonuses, banking, customer care, and everything else that this operator has to offer.


The BravoBet site has a clean design and easy to navigate layout, so you will have no problem making your way around. To get started, you will need to first sign up, so find the registration button in the upper right corner of the site and fill in the registration form.

You will be required to enter your nickname, mobile phone number, and email. You will also need to create a password. Once you’ve filled in all details correctly and accepted the Terms and Conditions, you will receive a confirmation SMS with the login details of your account. Then, you’re ready to log in and start betting.

Deposits and Withdrawals

When it comes to deposits, BravoBet offers the ‘Client In’ option, which involves visiting a land-based BravoBet betting shop to make a cash deposit. Simply tell the operator at the shop your nickname and the amount you wish to deposit – the minimum amount per transaction is ETB 10 and there is no max limit. You will be issued a slip for your transaction; make sure all details are entered correctly before leaving the shop.

BravoBet also supports a mobile deposit option via Hellocash Lion. You can find the option in your account under the deposit/withdrawal button. The minimum amount you can deposit via this method is ETB 50, with no maximum limit per transaction.

Withdrawal options are again cash out at a betting shop and Hellocash Lion. To request a withdrawal in a BravoBet shop, go to your account, click on the cash out link and enter the amount you’d like to withdraw. You will then receive a code on the phone number you’ve registered on the site. To receive your funds, visit a betting shop and give the operator your nickname and the code. After a quick verification, the operator will let you know if your request has been approved. There is no limit on withdrawals, but the minimum amount you can withdraw is ETB 10.

To complete a mobile withdrawal, click on the withdrawal button in your account and select Hellocash Lion. Depending on whether you have a registered Hellocash account or not, you will be able to receive your funds in your account or at a Lion bank branch or a Hellocash agent. The minimum amount per transaction is 1 ETB, and the maximum amount that can be withdrawn within 24 hours is 10.000 ETB.

Bonuses and Promotions

At the time of writing this review, there are no promotional offers at the BravoBet site.

Mobile App

BravoBet supports a mobile version that, just like the desktop site, is very easy to use with a design that adapts seamlessly to the screens of smartphones and tablets. There is no need to download any iOS or Android apps, just visit the website from your mobile device and you will have instant access to your account and betslip. The mobile version retains the uncluttered, intuitive design of the desktop site, so you will be able to browse markets by sports and countries, filter the events, and manage your selection with just a tap.

Support and Contacts

If you’d like to get in touch with BravoBet, you can find an email and a phone number on their contact page. There is no live chat option, but queries are processed promptly and efficiently.


BravoBet is a newly launched platform and as such, it’s still adjusting some aspects and fine-tuning the details. Many players may find the lack of bonuses and promotions disappointing, and the markets leave something to be desired, too. Although soccer, the most popular sport for betting in Ethiopia, is well covered with top-tier championships from more than 40 countries, as well as all international tournaments and club competitions, the other betting options are somewhat limited, as there are no eSports, horse racing, or motorsports markets.

On a positive note, the platform supports a number of live events from sports such as soccer and tennis at all times and, thanks to the easy to use platform, they can be managed easily on all devices. The site is a good choice for bettors who appreciate a more traditional approach to betting and won’t be looking for extravagant markets and don’t mind the lack of promotional offers as they aren’t interested in fulfilling bonus rollover requirements.
