Do not be fooled by the domain name, soccabet.com as this site offers all sporting codes and a multitude of bet-opportunities.
This site is one of the most comprehensive in Ghana and offers luxurious amenities like an online casino, huge jackpots, virtual play, 754 different markets, constant live in-play action and decent promotions.
This is one of the best sports betting sites in Africa let alone in Ghana and is highly recommended.
Online bet platforms range from the excellent to the shoddy and soccabet.com is arguably at the top of the pile. The sheer scale of the site can leave a punter a bit bewildered at first, with every feature asking to be played.
The service provider not only offers a whirlpool of bet-action but is well covered in the nitty gritty detail that is vital to a bettor.
Soccabet.com is a franchise that is run by Wingatebet Ghana Limited and boasts 60 bet-shops across the West African country.
This is important as punters may get confused with pay-outs in both cedi and euros.
This is obviously an international company with a footprint in Ghana but that being said the site is a wonderful cornucopia of bet-chances across all versions of wagering.
The soccabet jackpot is standing at a whopping 1 million cedi and is one of the highest paying out in the country.
The site is running two promotions currently with a cash boost dependant on amount of legs in a multi-accumulator wager. Predict between 20-24 correct results and you will receive an extra 50% on top of the original win amount.
The minimum number of fixtures to qualify for the cash boost is only five-ten games and this will yield a dividend of an extra 10% on top of winnings.
The other promotion is also a boon for bettors in that one loss in a min 10-bet multi will result in earning your three times your stake.
Soccabet.com offers more than 6000 sporting contests a month and with a massive bet market of 150+ per game this quantifies to millions of win opportunities.
The online casino is one of the better platforms in the country with a large variety of slot and table games. There are many punters who will place their sports bet then take a look at the online casino and spend some cedi there and hopefully hit more winnings.
The Virtual Play section is one of the more advanced to be seen in Ghana with a huge bet market and the all-important Virtual Football League. This VFL is essentially a full soccer season played out in two hours, with matches lasting three minutes.
The punter can place wagers on individual encounters or bet on who will win the league and which side will be relegated. In between each match has many bet-markets like who will score next goal, who will be booked second, BTTS (both teams to score), Handicap, under/over and many more.
While VP football is the most popular game to place wagers on, the site also offers bets on tennis, horse racing and virtual dog-racing.
The site also offers a news link that will keep the punters up to date with all relevant data, information and new signings. Most punters will let the odds generator be the main guide, but there are a good few who still like to do their own homework.
Now here it gets a bit confusing:
Payments like deposits and withdrawals take place through various banking portals including credit card, visa card, bank transfer, pre-paid card or by visiting a local bet-shop.
According to the site, deposits and withdrawals will be in the euro currency with minimum deposits of 20 euros for a credit card and 50 for a bank transfer.
Research on soccabet.com however shows that there are many more deposit options not advertised on their site.
Payments in cedi can be made through MTN and Airtel Mobile Money or through vouchers purchased at one of 60 bet shops around the country.
Soccabet.com – the Ghana version – must advertise more clearly on payment options as their landing page does not carry any news on local currency and money options. An example of this is the huge banner on the landing page which shows the jackpot prize of 1 million cedi, and then going down the left hand flank of the screen and clicking on payments will show the punter only the European methods to place deposits and withdraw winnings.
Right at the bottom of the main page are more options to learn about terms, conditions, payments, deposits and withdrawals and they all take a person to the same link, the one that shows paying in euros.
So far this is the main drawback to an otherwise prosperous looking site.
A punter will have to google search ‘how to deposit’ and ‘how to withdraw’ by typing in “soccabet.com payment options”. That will paint a clear, local orientated picture.
This flaw does not seem to have put off the punters as there are thousands of current bets in play – as seen down the left hand flank next to each sport. There will be a number showing current bets ongoing at the moment.
The site seems to have it all, but is caught between the moon and New York City, in particular the reference means a European feel to a Ghana run site.
I would recommend this site to online bettors, but under the remiss that the service providers offer more clear payment links.
