The Habesha Bets platform stands out with its vibrant design and promotions advertised in bold colors and has a good range of betting categories for pre-match and live bets. The company is licensed and regulated by the National Lottery Administration of Ethiopia and offers beneficial features and bonuses to all Ethiopian punters.


To create an account with Habesha Bets, open the registration form by clicking on the yellow button at the top of the page. You will need a valid phone number that will be your main account identification. Enter your date of birth and any promotional codes that you may have, create your password and agree to the T&C (called here ‘Rules’).

You will then receive an activation code via text message to the number you’ve provided. After you’ve activated your account, you can log in using the phone number and add more information in your account panel.

Deposits and Withdrawals

Unfortunately, Habesha Bets doesn’t support online banking options such as credit and debit cards or e-wallets. The only mobile payment method available is HelloCash. Otherwise, all deposits and withdrawals are processed in the company’s branches. There is no information on their website regarding minimum and maximum limits on deposits and withdrawals.

Bonuses and Promotions

Newly registered members can claim the Habesha Bets welcome bonus. It is a 20% matchup on first deposits made via HelloCash. Returning customers can also take advantage of different promotional offers. One such offer is the Free Bet which gives points back to users who have placed a bet on at least five games (maximum nine) with at least 1.35 odds and have lost just one game. In that case, they will receive their deposit (up to 1,000 ETB) in the form of points.

Other promotions include the ‘Bonus on Bet’, which automatically adds a 10% bonus on all bets over 100 ETB placed both online and in betting shops, and the Super Cashout that lets users cash out their winnings between games, provided they have added at least four games to their betslip. The Mix Match promotion allows users to bet on additional games created by two games by pitting each team against the other three.

Mobile App

The mobile version of the Habesha Bets site is just as colorful and welcoming as the desktop site, and it’s easy to use on all mobile devices as it scales seamlessly on all screens. At the top of the screen, you can read more about the promotional offers, swipe though the most popular sports, and keep tabs on the live and upcoming events.

A menu in the upper left corner provides links to the other pages, and the login and register buttons are conveniently located at the top of the screen. Provided you have a stable internet connection, you can use the website virtually anywhere without having to download any Android or iOS apps.

Support and Contacts

Habesha Bets offers 24/7 live support, so if you have any questions regarding the betting service or you need help with banking or placing a bet, you can get in touch over the phone at +251 909 533 561. If you prefer sending an email instead of making a phone call, send your questions to info@habeshabets.com and you will receive a timely reply.


Although Habesha Bet doesn’t offer the biggest variety of betting categories, there are still enough sports to appeal to a wide audience. From football and basketball to floorball and water polo, there are 20 sports available for pre-match and live bets. Each event offers a wide range of markets, including handicaps, double bets, and many more options for score, winner, halves, etc.

The promotional offers further boost the excitement of placing bets here, with different options to receive deposits back, increase winnings with a bonus bet, or cash out early. The platform could definitely benefit from adding online payment options and providing more information, such as an FAQ page, but if you prefer keeping your financial transactions offline and you don’t mind visiting a branch to handle deposits and withdrawals, you could give Habesha Bets a try.
