Bongobongo is one of the newest betting sites in Kenya, and it might be because of this reason that it still provides an incomplete betting experience. They have a good jackpot feature and a win bonus. On the other hand, the site is not very user friendly, features such as virtual games and live betting don’t work properly. Odds on the site also seem much lower than what other bookies offer.

Bongobongo In-depth Review
Bongobongo brand is fully licensed and registered under the company name Kensen Limited Company under the Betting Control and Licensing Board (BCLB). The Company is fully specialized in mobile payments and e-commerce. It also focuses on other projects under the brand name Bongobongo betting firm.
The bookmaker under the company name has over the years promoted, responsible betting and has encouraged punters to be responsible with their finance when gambling in order to make a living.
⭐ BEST BETTING SITES IN KENYA ⭐
Bongobongo uses rules based on KYC (know your customer) and also seeks to establish corporate social responsibility among its customers. Therefore the bookie has shown how it cares for the community and the well-being of its customers.
The homepage is neatly arranged booted with an easy navigation feature making it easy for a new customer to move through different sections of the website and access the different platforms offered without much ado.
The page shows different offers as well as service like the free data offer, allowing punters with no data for internet access to bet without any data charges.
Also top league events are promoted with bonus offer popping up on the screen and the page gives us detailed highlights on today’s match.
The page layout is relatively simple but we can see details of professionalism used. The site uses the secure systems of SSL which protects punters’ personal information used in the registration process from third parties and therefore complying with BCLB rules.
The page gives different links, allowing access to different information that a punter may wish to know or understand about the bookmaker and we also get the link to downloading the App.
Bongobongo offers a variety of sportsbooks events and virtual games which include:
- Ice hockey
- Table tennis
Apart from the popular top leagues like the premier, championship, Bundesliga, La Liga and Seria A. the bookie also offers virtual games which include instant football, virtual soccer, virtual champions, virtual world cup, instant horses and virtual basket league just to mention a few.
On casino games, we can’t find any markets as per this review since the bookmaker has not yet opened them but soon the markets will be open for registered punters.
The bet types are 1 X 2, double chance, over/under, both teams to score (BTTS), halftime/ fulltime, draw no bet, handicap, odd/even and correct score among other 300+ markets.
The bookie offers some of the best odds seen in the market with competitive odds being offered on top leagues and with other top bookmakers in the market offering much lower odds.
We also get bonuses each time we play on multiple bets up to 120% of 18 matches’ selection and above. The odds accumulate when picking odds above 1.4 and above.
Bongobongo Kenya, despite offering the competitive betting odds in the market lacks the cash out feature, which will result in total loss in the event a match losses and therefore we can’t get back part of the stake.
It’s unfortunate that such a good gaming platform lacks such an important feature maybe we can expect this feature in the coming future.
Bonuses and Promotions
The Karibu bonus applies for new customer and we get up to Sh500 that is equivalent with the first stake amount. To qualify for this promo we need to be new customer, make a deposit and place a bet.
We also enjoy the win boost on multiple bets placed, 5-9 match selection gives us 10%, 10-17 lines earns us 50% boost and 18 plus selection gives us a maximum of 120% bonus.
It’s also important to note that some of these promos may not apply to you depending on the terms and conditions made by the bookmaker.
Lucky for us Bongobongo offers the best jackpots which ensure that even if you get 11/12 and 10/12 correct selection we get bonuses.
The cash prize for the Bongobongo jackpot is Sh2,000,000 with bonuses for 11 and 10 correct selection which is shared equally among the jackpot winners.
If we manage to get the 12 correct scores we win the Sh2m cash prize and nothing is shared among the 11 and 10 correct selections.
The live streaming feature in Bongobongo Kenya uses data from the advance SPORTradar, which gives the punter the best betting experiences and we also get information as the match continues.
Sportradar constantly updates the match data each second and thus we get accurate statistics. It provides detailed information on cards, ball possession, conversion rate and goals among other relevant data.
We have access to live commentary, tactical information and match track showing a 3D layout of the pitch. How cool is that!
In Kenya, the payment option is dominated by the Mpesa mobile transaction and Paybill number 499995 which is used by Bongobongo Kenya.
The withdrawals are done by banks of an amount more than Sh500,000 and we are therefore limited to the Mpesa paybill option when making deposits.
