betPawa is one of the most popular bookmakers in Africa. The betting company follows a strict strategy to support a different website for each country and due to this strategy it has a specially tailored website version for Zambia, too. Although all of these websites are alike, this approach of work is the most suitable alternative to us, the customers. The betting operator’s web platform offers all the main bet types on sports such as pre-match, live and jackpot bets and alongside with them, we are also provided with a couple of casino games.
betPawa App download and mobile versions
Most of the markets where the company has a solid presence are full of mobile bets and because of this reason betPawa has advanced as a real mobile bookie. All of the games and services are not just finely adapted to mobile devices, but they are even specially made for being used in a mobile mode, so there’s definitely no compromise when it comes to gambling via a smartphone or a tablet. If you might meet some problems, basically they could appear in case you browse the platform via a computer, but not via a mobile device.
Currently at this stage betPawa can be used only via a web application. In other words, it’s not an alternative where you should download an app, but where you directly visit the page via your internet browser. If you are reading this material through a smartphone or a tablet, you do it through a mobile browser, which is compatible to be used for betting with real money in this betting house.
Types of gambling games in betPawa
In betPawa you can bet on matches that are live, as well as on matches that are appointed within the day, while as to the events from the bigger championships and more popular sport types there are also bets you can place a couple of days in advance.
This bookie’s sport program still includes a limited number of category – currently, we see football, basketball, tennis, rugby, rugby league, cricket and volleyball.
We would determine the sport bets in this gambling website as quite profitable and some of the biggest football events even come with the so called pawaBoost option that makes your eventual wins quite great.
The website might offer a poorer program when it comes to offer and compared to many bookies (although here we have some truly interesting leagues like Ukraine U21, Vietnam, Poland Female league and etc), but the odds are rarely competitive, especially when having in mind those from the European bookmakers nowadays. The local Zambian platforms for betting as a whole offer lower odds than the odds provided in betPawa.
Many bookmakers in Zambia have the special game with predictions where a jackpot amount is progressively increasing. We find it in betPawa, too – to be more specific in the section Jackpot. This is a game that offers a big chance for a giant win, but at the expense of a small bet. However, note that you are supposed to correctly predict lots of matches here.
The game is called emPawa17, while the number of the name is taken from the number of football events you should correctly predict in the market 1X2. If you succeed in guessing the winner in all of the matches you can win up to one million of kwacha.
To correctly predict 17 matches is by all means, a hard task to do and you should not ride your luck for the biggest prize, but considering the fact that the ticket price for participation is only K 1, giving it a try is worth it.
The bookie is fully aware how hard it is for a person not to make a single mistake in all these 17 predictions, which is why the company offers compensatory prizes. They are offered for punters who have correctly predicted at least 13 of the events.
The game is available for you every weekend. During the week there’s one more game that is more of a warming up type and that has a smaller prize fund, as well as smaller number of events to predict (13).
We can claim that betPawa has an online casino room. Ok, while websites like 1xBet have thousands of games in their online casinos, here we see only 4 offers, it is not right not to appreciate betPawa’s good will to have some at least. The online casino room, after all, is always an amazing alternative to spend some time on the platform while waiting for a cool event to appear on the sport program.
The games are far away from the graphics or the quality we are used to see in the modern studios’ portfolios among Europe, so please don’t raise your expectations too much.
The good news is that although a few, there are some games and they are nice options for diversifying your gambling experience. For instance, we are offered a video poker game with the standard Jacks or Better terms and conditions, roulette, the lucky fortune wheel and the famous game Fortune Miner, which if you have never met, is a type of a slot game.
betPawa first deposit bonus
When we made our registration in betPawa, the bookmaker gave us as a gift 5 K in a form of a free bet, but currently there’s no information for this bonus in the website. It is not clear whether the promotion is temporarily off, or you will never see it again.
However, on the other side, one of the most traditional bonuses the punters relate this betting company with, is available. We are talking about the multi-bet bonus up to 100% which increases with the increase of the number of your matches added to the betslip.
betPawa account management
All betting operators accept new customers only after they fill in a registration form. The registration form in betPawa is available via 2-3 buttons – called Join Now and located at different places in the website – is as easy as a childish game. Here you need to fill in only two fields. First of all, type in your mobile phone number and in the second field, select a password to login.
Use this information to enter your account, but before getting an access to it, you will have to verify your registration. You need to type in a PIN code. You will receive it as SMS message sent to the phone number you provide.
It’s not hard to make a deposit in betPawa, either. You have probably made some financial transactions through internet via your Airtel and MTN accounts. Use them to make deposits in betPawa, too. To make the whole procedure even easier for you, the gambling house has provided some more details about it on the website. What you should know now is that the minimum deposit requirement is K 20.
Placing a bet in betPawa
Although there’s a minimum deposit requirement, you are not limited regarding the smallest amount of money you can invest when placing a bet.
You can bet as much as you want and on as many matches as you prefer. Just select one or more bets and with each next clicking on any of the betting selections you will see a new pop-upped window to open your betslip (it refers to the mobile version only). In this small window you will be shown the current information about your bet – the odd of the betslip and the number of the selections.
Besides informing yourself the small window and the data in it is also important when placing a real bet. When you see the information and you are ok with your bet, there’s one field you should fill in to finish it – Your Stake. When you type in the bet amount, finish with clicking on Place Bet.
