Vamos Betting

vamos.bet

Vamos Bets is an Ethiopian betting service that allows customers to place bets at its land-based company branches or online, on the sportsbook’s website. The site offers a good selection of pre-match betting options and different promotions for new and existing customers. In our review, we look at all aspects of the Vamos Bets online betting platform, including bonuses, mobile play, and customer care.

Registration

Vamos Bets is one of those sports betting platforms that use phone numbers as identification, so if you’ve been placing bets at one such site, you’ll already know the drill of the registration process. Locate the signup button in the upper right corner of the screen and enter your phone number and date of birth in the registration form. A code will be sent to your number via SMS that you need to enter in order to activate your account.

Deposits and Withdrawals

According to the Vamos Bets’ T&Cs page, deposits and withdrawals can be made only at branches of the company. There is also the option for a HelloCash deposit which qualifies for the welcome bonus. The listed minimum deposit is 10 ETB, and there is no information on deposit and withdrawal limit.

Bonuses and Promotions

Vamos Bets greets its newly registered members with a 20% deposit bonus. To be eligible for the bonus, users need to make a deposit of at least 100 ETB using HelloCash. Promotions for existing customers include:

  • Free Bet Bonus: gives you the chance to get a new ticket for free if you win a ticket of five or more games.
  • Multibonus on win: an accumulator bonus which can increase to 200% for 30 events.
  • Bonus on bet: bet more than 100 ETB and you will automatically receive a 10% increase.
  • Super cashout: gives you the chance to cancel your ticket with at least four games. The games that have been won are paid and the games that haven’t been played are deleted from the ticket.
  • Mix Match: mixes two games so that four more games can be created.

There is no information provided on the website regarding the conditions of the bonuses so it’s best that you contact customer care in order to receive more details before you decide to opt in.

Mobile App

The mobile version of the Vamos Bets website allows easy access to the events, thanks to its convenient layout. The login and promotions tabs are at the bottom of the screen, and sports can be found at the top where you can easily swipe through the ones with active events. Vamos Bets haven’t released any apps for iOS or Android, so there will be no need for you to download and install software in order to use the site on your smartphone or tablet. Load the website in your device’s browser and you’re ready to start placing bets wherever you are.

Support and Contacts

The Vamos Bets mobile site has a chat icon, which is, in fact, inactive. This leaves phone and email as the only contact options. The client support number listed on the website is +251966046666, but the operator specifically recommends that it be used for SMS and Telegram. If you don’t find this option helpful, you can send an email with your query to info@vamos.bet and wait for them to get back to you.

Conclusion

Vamos Bets offers a number promotions, so many punters may be willing to give it a try. However, besides the different bonuses, the sportsbook doesn’t stand out with a particularly varied selection of sports as it covers fewer than 20 sports and it doesn’t offer live betting options on those. The only online payment option is HelloCash, so those bettors who would like to use cards or e-wallets will not be able to do so here.

The site could definitely be improved in terms of user experience and customer care, considering that there are no contact options listed on the desktop site, the live chat button on the mobile app is inactive, and there is no information on the promotions’ terms and conditions published anywhere.
