Betin is an online betting house that started operating on the global market in 2010 year and today it is one of the leading bookmakers in several African countries, including Uganda. In our country the betting website works under the license of the International gambling corporation Logispin Group and it has been already strictly licensed by the national gambling operator National Lotteries Board of Uganda.
In this article we are going to make a detailed analysis about the bookie, including information about the following important things:
- How to register in this betting platform
- How to make a deposit or a withdrawal from the betting page and what the opportunities for these purposes are
- Sports betting service that the company offers, as well as its live betting category
- The bonus with which you can increase your profit from each accumulated bet you place
- Casino games and virtual sports in this betting page
- The chance for playing the games and for betting from a mobile device
To register in Betin you don’t have to do anything else different from filling in one registration from where required fields (by virtue of the law) with personal data, as well as data for your future personal account should be filled in. Without this data there is no way, as a matter of fact, to make an account in any bookie at all.
You can enter the registration form page by pressing the yellow text Register in the bookie’s website. This link can be found at these locations:
- In the top right side of your screen if you use a desktop version
- In the top left side of you screen if you use a mobile version
When you open the form you will see only three fields to fill in – telephone number, password and an e-mail address. Fill them in, press on Create My Account and your account will be practically created.
Yet, in order to use this bookmaker’s services at a full value and to be more specific – in order to be able to make withdrawals from this website – you need to do one more thing: To enter the Change Personal details (a link to this page can be found in the semi-menu from My Account) and then, to add more personal information data, including:
- Name and surname
- Date and year of birth
This is the end of the registration process – you can now gamble in the platform till the rest of your life without doing anything else.
The betting company has on purpose divided the data filling process into two pieces – at first the most important things the customer support team needs to let you register, and then, the rest of your personal data which can be added later when you want to make a withdrawal. This way of registering is made in the sake of the audience’s convenience and the main aim here is not to require the user to do all of these at once.

This betting operator doesn’t offer so many sport types you can place your bets on, but at the expense of this most of the offered disciplines come with a large number of events which in total can reach up to 1 000 per week.
The betting website accepts bets on almost all of the matches from the Ugandan premium league and for each of these matches there are different bets you can place on various markets such as the following:
- 1X2 – Who will win in the match
- Under or Over 2.5 scores
- Double Chance – 1X, X2 or 12
- Both of the teams to score – Yes or No
- Even or uneven number of scores
- Draw void bet – In case of a draw the bet gets void
- Bets with Asian handicap – Lines -1, -0.75, -0.5, -0.25 and many others.
- European handicap
- Number of scores for the host and for the guest
- Correct score
Yet, as a matter of fact, these markets are a pill to cure an earthquake in comparison to the number of markets we see specially tailored for the matches from the biggest European championships that include up to more than 100 different markets among which we even see bets for goal scorers – for each of the player on the field there is a chance for you to bet that he will score first or within the gaming time in total, and even to score the last goal.
As a whole, the betting house offers bets on matches from than 70 countries and the number of the championships and the leagues is more than 200.
And this is information regarding football only. You can place bets on hundreds of other events from sport disciplines such as basketball, baseball, ice hockey, tennis, handball, rugby, snooker, volleyball, beach volleyball and many more.
If you are interested bout the odds offered in this betting page, know that they are with several % lower than those from the bookies you know from the world market and that are famous for their high odds. On the other side, the odds in Betin are higher in comparison to the odds from the average Ugandan betting websites.
Let’s make an actual comparison. While the odds for the upcoming event from the English Premium league – Stoke City and Everton – in this bookmaker are around 2.40 – 3.20 – 3.10, in any leading world bookie they are around 2.48 – 3.30 – 3.19. This is a difference that yet matters, but it is not so fatal for the average punter.
On all of these nearly 10 sport types you can also place bets in real time and here you will find about up to 100 markets per certain event. The bookie brags about the fact that during some days the total number of markets the punters can choose in the Live betting category per day are nearly 10 000.
The live bets are placed separately from the bets for pre-match betting and you can find them in the Live betting category.
Besides the dull bets and markets we generally know, this category will make you happy with several additional extras such as:
- Several options for the page view you can choose from in order to establish the most convenient way to personalize this service especially for your needs.
- Detailed statistics that is updated per minute
- Computer live graphics through which you can follow the event progress on the field.
For both of the bets – pre-matches and live bets – you have the right to use the bonus over the multiple bets the page offers. This bonus refers to each of the multiple bets in Betin as long as they include at least 5 selections per bet.
The amount of the bonus is in a direct ratio to the bet slip amount. In other words, the more events you have in the bet slip, the higher % will be used when the company increases your final profit in case of an eventual success for all of your predictions.
The maximum amount of the bonus is up to 100% and you will get it in case your successful bet slip has at least 25 selections. In case of smaller bet slips you will be able to get the bonus, but it will be with a lower %. For instance, the slips that have 5 selections get 5% bonus. Yet, the more selections you add, the bigger your bonus becomes.
While the sport betting category gathers sport and sport betting lovers, the Casino category in this gambling operator unites the casino entertainment fans by attracting them with a huge variety of games and special offers. The games, by the way, aren’t that many as a total number, but they are excellently diversified, so all of the punters who prefer more interesting and different casino games can be fully satisfied. The range of this category in Betin includes:
- Live casino – More than 50 games that take place in front of your eyes via the modern live casino technology. Nearly 30 of these games represent different Blackjack tables, 10 are roulette types, alongside with Baccarat, a lucky wheel and even video poker games.
- Table games – 15 games among which you will see 4 roulette types, punto banco, Baccarat, lucky dice, Blackjack and many others.

- Slot games – 15 roulettes in fruit, pirate, Egyptian, Christmas, mafia and other amazing themes.
You can count them, themselves, but yet, we need to say that indeed, the casino games number is big and it is nearly 90. This is mostly due to the successful collaboration between Betin and the software company Logi Games that is also owned by Logispin Group. By the way, as you can see, this is one of the benefits you enjoy when being a part of a large international corporation. You simply can work in a partnership with other corporations in your sphere and with great reputation in the field.
The live casino games are the only company’s offers that are handled by other software company. This is the well-known Evolution Gaming representing a name we don’t have to explain and determine to people that are quite familiar with the casino industry in internet.
Like in the live casino category, the virtual sports in this bookie are handled by other third party provider with a strong reputation in its sphere. We are talking about Betradar and according to us, such a strategy definitely offers amazing final results as it lets the company and respectively the players to take the advantages of the best offers on the market at this very moment. In the concrete case, the virtual sports provided by Betradar are the most popular ones in today’s online gambling pages which is a good enough reason to believe their quality is on a high level.
As to the virtual sports, the bookmaker’s customers have an access to bets in the following games:
- Hounds (available only in the desktop page version)
- Horse racing (available only in the desktop page version)
- Basketball (available only in the mobile version)
The best thing about these virtual sports is that you can place bets on them at any moment of the day – many users use them as a spare chance to have fun, but also to get some funds when there are no interesting sport events. Other punters, on the other side, even prefer them more than the live betting category as the virtual sports get a final result quite fast. In football, for instance, you don’t watch the entire game that lasts 90 minutes, but only the most interesting situations and such a virtual football event lasts nearly 3-4 minutes.
As to the quality of the virtual sports – enter Virtual category in this betting website and you will ensure how amazing, realistic and detailed the game visualization here is.
You have two options to place bets via your mobile telephones:
- Via a mobile version you directly enter through your mobile device browser
- Via a mobile app you can download from the website mobile version
There is no matter what your mobile device is, as well as what operating system it runs on, when you want to bet on the go via the mobile website version. Meanwhile, to use the mobile application you have, though, to own an Android smartphone or tablet. Have in mind that if the device runs on an older Android version, the app will not work so well or it will not work at all (sometimes, the application cannot even be downloaded because of such an old version of the operating system).
The betting company works quite hard on its mission to include as many bet types and functions from the desktop page version in its mobile version. Currently the only things you can take benefits of from your computer, but not from your mobile device, are only part of the animated casino games, as well as two of the available virtual sports – horse racing and hounds.
