Never before have I seen a highly optimized betting site in Kenya as the newly launched Bongobongo. For those behind news, yes, there is a new betting site in Kenya called Bongobongo. Surebetsite really gets interested in newly launched betting sites if they have nothing new to offer. We however are usually among the first to notice and investigate any betting site in East and West Africa.

So when I got wind of a new site called BongoBongo, I could not help but find more information about the site and even test their website and services.

The findings I made had to be preserved in a written article since they hit me hard. Never before had I thought that a new betting site would surprise me with features I had never seen before in my 5 years experience in the betting industry. In this article I will give you the details of Bongobongo and what makes it different, but first things first.


Bongobongo is a new betting site in East Africa that has joined the crowded betting market. It is registered under the law of Kenya under Kensen Limited and regulated by the Betting Control & Licensing Board in Kenya under License No.0000155.


Bongobongo can be distinguished from the vast majority of betting sites in Kenya by their distinctive mix of different shades of blue. Their website is also almost completely different with a simpler and cleaner look while leaving a lot of breathing space to elements on display. On visiting the website, the first thing you will see is the betting site's paybill number and their impressive logo just below after. A sleek clean menu of 5 items follows. Alerts of the most popular matches and attractive offers follow. The main content Starts with the day's highlights then a menu for the most popular leagues such as the English Premier League, Bundesliga etc. Scrolling further down is an elaborate menu for other categories of facilities such as live bets, virtual sports etc.


As I told you, I have many years of experience in the betting industry and I know virtually all betting sites in East and West Africa. Truth is , never before have I agreed so much with the feel of a betting site. The fonts are artistic and rounded at the tips, the contrast of menus and matches against a backdrop of holding boxes is almost therapeutic. The website is responsive even to the smallest touch. Using it feels like a breeze. Unlike many existing betting sites, Bongobongo is optimized for various devices such as mobile, tablet and desktop. This is a site which feels like a 5 start internet service at your fingertips.


Bongobongo offers a myriad of services including live bets and jackpots. Below is a complete list of what is available ob Bongobongo

  1. Bongobet offers bets for Soccer, Basketball, Baseball, Ice Hockey, Tennis, Handball, Rugby, Darts, Volleyball, Table Tennis, Badminton and Cricket. You are never short of sports to bet on.

  2. Jackpot - The Bongobongo Jackpot Prize is Ksh. 2 million for 12 correct predictions and bonuses for 10/12 and 11/12 correct predictions.

  3. Virtual Sports - Bongobongo offers virtual gaming opportunities such as Instant football, Virtual soccer, Virtual Champions, Virtual World Cup and many more.

  4. Lucky 6 Number Picker - If you are a number picking junkie then you are covered. Their number picking service called Lucky 6 is simple to play and hopefully worth playing.

  5. Promotions - Bongobongo currently has 2 active promotions. With the first one, Karibu Bonus, you get an equivalent of 100% of your first stake as a bonus after registration. The bonus is capped at Ksh. 500. The WinBOOST promotion enables you to earn up to 120% of your winnings if the number of your multiples in a single bet is more than 5

  6. Live Betting - Just like Betika and some other sites in Kenya, you can access and place live bets on Bongobongo.

USING BONGOBONGO MINIMUM STAKE & WITHDRAWALS The minimum you can stake on Bongobongo is Ksh. 20 and the maximum winnings per day is Ksh. 4 million. The minimum withdrawal from Bongobongo is Ksh. 200. This is one of the site's biggest drawbacks. We all know Kenyans like to withdraw whatever they have for subsistence needs. So long as a Ksh. 20 is accepted as a stake, then at least Ksh. 50 should be able to be withdrawn. How to deposit Using Mobile Money (Available to M-Pesa Kenya Mobile Money Log in at Select DEPOSIT menu at the top of your Betting Account Enter the Amount (Minimum Ksh.10) Click on DEPOSIT An MPESA Deposit pop up message will be sent to the Phone number you have SPECIFIED that you want to use for depositing.

Enter the amount you wish to withdraw from the available account balance. The Bongobongo team will be notified to approve your withdrawal, usually within an hour (maximum). You will receive funds into your selected mobile money wallet. CONCLUSION After trying the services of Bongobongo I have to accept that I am astonished and excited by the kind of talent that took time todesignand create their website. It has a classy feel, a welcoming appearance and easy to find and use features. Their bet slip is modern yet simple. Their mix of normal bets, live bets, virtuals and jackpot make it complete, comprehensive and obviously worthy trying. The main drawback of the site is the fact that the minimum withdrawal is Ksh, 200. I hope they change their minds to allow smaller withdrawals to say Ksh. 50. On a scale of 1-10, I would give Bongobongo a decisive 8.
