Free Bets, Special Offers and Promotions

What is the welcome bonus available?

Helabet offer a fantastic registration bonus for all new customers of 100% up to KES 10,000. Make your first deposit of minimum stake KES 100 up to KES 10,000 to receive this bonus. This bonus must be wagered 15 times on minimum 3 odds on singles, multiples or pre-match with a maximum payout of KES 40,000. Virtual sports and U17-20 Leagues will not count towards wagering so we recommend staking on higher profile matches. T&C’s apply

Counter Offer

This is a unique Helabet offer which gives its customers the chance to increase the odds of the bet, and of course, the winnings. The Counter Offer is available on vbet.com only for pre-match single bets on sports events where the amount of bets equals $10 or more. The counter offer must be higher than the odds of the given event by a maximum of 1%. Helabet will review that request and will make a decision on accepting or refusing the offer. T&C’s Apply.

The bonus only applies to football betting market 1×2, multiple and system bets only, with a minimum selection odds of 1.8. T&C’s Apply.

Website Review

The layout and the design of the website is very pleasant  thanks to a purple and yellow theme with white fonts. The homepage of the  website has all the sections a punter needs to place a successful bet. They even offer a News section in order to keep the bettors up to date with the latest information from the world of sport. The light purple toolbar at the top of the homepage contains the most important sections of the website: Live, Sports, Hela Virtuals, Hela 5, Virtual Sports and Roulette Football. Underneath that, there are some big banners with the current bonuses and promotions, followed by four big buttons: Match Center, Play Now, Hela 5 and Live in Play. Another important feature of the homepage is the ‘Last Minute Bets’ where the bettors can place a quick bet before a specific game finishes. Furthermore, Helabet allows its customers to choose what and how they want to see the website, if they want to turn off the sounds and to change the odds format or the time zone by clicking on the ‘Settings’ icon at the top-right corner of the page.

Markets and Odds

The betting site offers a huge variety of sports and betting markets including football, tennis, boxing and politics. However, Helabet seems to be focusing more on football and cricket and they have already said they have the best betting markets and odds for these two sports. The average number of the offered events per sport and per day is bigger than 200 and during the weekend there are over 600 events. There are thousands of betting markets from the most popular ones to the more obscure alternatives. Regarding odds, they offer some good odds for the favourites meaning that the odds for the underdogs aren’t that great. In addition, the fact that at Helabet you can place bets on Virtual Sports, Hela Virtuals, Hela 5 and Football Roulette, means that you can’t get bored while you’re on their website.

Live Betting /  In-play Betting

The In-play section of the site can be accessed through the Live button situated in the light purple toolbar on the homepage. The range of sports on the live section isn’t that wide as the pre-match ones but the most popular sports are here. If you are a fan of football, cricket, basketball, tennis, volleyball and ice hockey you should be satisfied with the Live betting opportunities. The 2D graphics that depicts the action of the game are looking sharp and the stats are nicely illustrated just below the teams’ name. In addition, you can switch between four type of views: Classic, Asian, Modern and Combo. You can also check the live calendar to see the upcoming fixtures and the Results tab to check if your team has won the game or not.

Mobile Betting / App

The mobile version of the site can be accessed from any smartphone or tablet and it seems to us to be spot on. You will find the entire range of sports and betting markets the company has to offer in both desktop and mobile versions. In addition, there is a ‘how to place a mobi-bet’ guide available for new users. There is no specific Helabet App at the moment, but the mobisite looks so great that you won’t probably need an application for your device.

Customer Support

There is no live chat service available but they are an experienced bookmaker and their agents can assist you via a phone call or an email to their support address.


It can be seen from the professionalism of the website that Helabet is one of the best bookmakers in Africa. They have a stylish website, great promotions and bonuses, decent sports coverage, modern live betting area and many other interesting features. They still need to work a bit on their Customer Support service and on their online presence through the Social media channels, but overall, we think that Helabet is definitely worth a try.
