Gimbet being a new bookie in town, very little is known about what they offer to bettors in Kenya. In our review we found out that the site provides a very disappointing betting experience especially for more experienced bettors. The bookie has focused solely on sports betting; they lack important features such as virtual sports, jackpots, and casinos. Also, their mobile-focused website is very unintuitive and slow.

Gimbet In-depth

The Gimbet brand is registered under the parent name Afreeken Technology Limited by the BCLB (Betting, Lotteries and Gaming Act, Cap 131) under the laws of Kenya.

The brand name doesn’t allow person under the age of 18 years to participate in their bookmaking business. This shows the intentions of the bookmaker in protecting the young.

There is little information to openly trust Gimbet but through the license number BK. 0000174, we are assured by the BCLB that the company/ firm has meet all the requirements and therefore has the capacity to make payouts for winning customers.

User Experience

The homepage is simple and has easy navigation features enabling us to cruise through different links in order get what we are looking for easily.

The platform also displays hot events of the day, while the top dashboard showing sports, live, premier league and next hour matches, load code, country among other relevant information.

With available promos also being displayed on the dashboard, we can also access the easy to use Gimbet App with a secure link displayed on the website page.

The platform uses secure SSL software, therefore protecting our personal details and information from third parties among other threats like malware.


Betting markets

The available betting markets are mostly the popular events and therefore we are limited to a few gaming markets which are:

  • Football
  • Basketball
  • Tennis
  • Rugby
  • Cricket
  • Volleyball
  • Ice hockey
  • Handball
  • Dart
  • Beach ball

All thiese markets cover most of the world’s top leagues, we can miss an event on the betting platform. The site however lacks other less popular events like casino games and virtual sports.

The upside is that you can’t miss a popular sporting event with daily promos on hot games being displayed on the website.

Great odds

The interesting part about Gimbet is the odds and how they are presented on the platform. The odds are shown for an event with 3 way, over/ under, double chance, both teams to score being the popular boosted odds that are displayed.

So we can choose the more profitable odds of the day, thus we can make a good profit from boosted odds and accumulator multiple bets.

Cash out

The Kenya betting market is harsh, with difficult customers to please as well as competitive rivals in the market and each bookmaker offering different features.

Gimbet does offer the cash out feature that can be either full cash out or partial cash out and this enables as to get part of the money back on the stake. The partial stake will enable part of the stake to continue until the end.

They claim to offer a free deposit but it’s also limited to a given amount of deposit, where data charges will apply.

Bonuses and promotions

Gimbet offers a welcome bonus for new registered punters on their platform. You can register and get the offer on first deposit of up to Sh1000. A disclaimer however is that you have to hurry since its time limited once you have registered.

There is an offer when you deposit Sh50, you get Sh150 discount gift; deposit Sh100 get up to Sh300 and then when you deposit Sh300, you get the maximum deposit discount of Sh1,000.


Gimbet currently doesn’t offer any markets on jackpots, the only alternative is to use multiple bets to get the odd boost in order to win big.


The livestreaming feature used on the Gimbet platform is advanced and we get access to detail information on the match/ event. The feature covers most of the sports market with each market having a different kind of match tracker.

This feature is popular among Kenyans since it makes winning easier since we have access to live and accurate information on the event.

The constant updates makes the gaming experience more exciting, with accurate updates there is no way we can loss. The match track gives information on number of cards, corners, free kicks, possession and other information like substitutions.

We recommend this feature if you are looking for excitement in the gaming experience.

Payment options

The payment option is limited to the Safaricom paybill option that is mostly dominated by the network provider and the punter can enjoy free deposits to a certain deposit amount.

  • Paybill 7142001
