M-bet, the Tanzanian bookmaker with a promising future, has a remarkable track record with an innovative and original sports betting concept. Although its scope of activity is limited to the local level, the web is attracting a lot of interest from players from all over the world. And despite its recent entry into the gambling industry, M-bet is a leader in providing high quality services. This is coupled with the online and offline marketing strategies, making the web one of the outstanding brands in Tanzania and East Africa.
M-Bet at a glance
M-Bet welcomes its customers with a simplistically styled website. The whole thing has familiar components, including the side menu, lists, tabs and cards. The platform defaults to English, however you can change the translation tool to Swahili if you wish. With convenient navigation, all sections are presented in a clear and intuitive way. On the left side of the page is a list of all the sports events to bet on. In the middle there is a line with the list of upcoming events. You will get an overview by selecting the sport you are interested in. A coupon on the right hand side allows you to wait for the confirmation of your bets. There are different formats for the coefficients on the site, but it is possible to modify them according to the versions proposed by M-Bet.
M-Bet operates under a national license issued by the Tanzania Gaming Commission. Today, the platform supports the responsible gambling policy to limit any form of addiction.
Website and mobile application
M-Bet has set up two convenient ways to place bets from a mobile phone. Firstly, a mobile website adapted for any small screen device. This provides high quality bets, but requires a stable network signal and very high speed. On the other hand, there are similar features to the full version of M-Bet. On the other hand, the mobile application proves to be more efficient when frequently on the move. The program, which is compatible with Android and iOS operating systems, provides access to all the bookmaker’s services. Moreover, the tool guarantees full protection of users’ personal and financial data. To download the software and install it on your smartphone or tablet, click on “New App”. The “Mobile betting” section contains explicit details and instructions on how to use it.
Registration of new members
For new members, M-Bet has made the registration process as quick as possible. New members will have to choose between two options :
- Full registration. Simply fill in the required fields with your personal details, create a password, and select your country of residence and account currency;
- Registration via social networks and messengers, simply selecting the currency of the account. The rest of the information will be uploaded from the social network account, once the connection is established.

Bonuses and promotions
M-Bet offers a welcome bonus to new registrants who make an initial deposit in Bitcoin. The reward amounts to 6 BTC. In addition, here are some basic offers found on the web:

The betting market
M-Bet currently has around 15 sports, with a minority of main and alternative markets. Given its recent activity, the site has little impact on the European continent, but this does not prevent it from continuing its momentum. Firstly, you will find a section dedicated to football, placed at the bottom of the page. This type of sport is one of the bookmaker’s biggest priorities. Scrolling down the menu, you will find the most important matches, with many betting options. Other popular events include betting on hockey, tennis and basketball. Most cover a number of tournaments in major leagues. If you’re a niche sports fan, place your bets on cricket, golf, cycling, Australian football, rugby, snooker and other competitions. For more details, visit the ‘How to play’ and ‘How to bet’ sections.
Non-sporting events include betting on politics, local mass cultural events and even the Covid pandemic. On the other hand, there is one big drawback to live betting. This is a technical failure in the broadcasting of the matches, which is 20 seconds behind the real time. Nevertheless, betting remains open.
