SoccaBet was launched in 2015 and advanced to become one of the best betting sites in Ghana within a very short time. The bookmaker owes this primarily to its excellent range of football bets as well as its range of live bets. It is one of the few betting sites that does not have a welcome bonus, but SoccaBet scores in Ghana with some promotions for all users.
What we like about SoccaBet
- The particularly extensive range of football betting options
- A large selection of live bets
- A clear design and simple handling
- The quality of the mobile app
- Many contact options
What we like less about SoccaBet
- Apart from football, tennis, basketball and ice hockey, the depth of the sports betting offer is limited
- The odds key is a little too low
- Too few explanations on the website
- The small selection of payment options

Betting offer and odds: Expandable selection, low odds
Soccer is another term for football, and instead of the O in the logo, there is a football. So, it goes without saying that SoccaBet primarily addresses football fans. And in this respect, the betting site is among the leaders in terms of both the breadth and depth of the sports betting offer. Furthermore, the betting opportunities in tennis, basketball, and ice hockey are impressive.
The situation is wholly different for the betting offer regarding the other sports. Admittedly, we wrote our SoccaBet review during the week. But even regardless of this, we found the selection extremely limited, both in terms of competitions and betting markets. This applies, among others, to volleyball and handball.
Also, odds key depends on the sport. In football, it fluctuates between 94% and 95%, whereby there are outliers, for example, for the Premier League. For the NBA, it is even a tad higher. So, the odds look solid, but there is room for improvement. And for all other sports, the odds key is below that.
Live betting experience: A wide selection, but with few sports and low odds
Concerning the live betting offer, the same applies to a certain extent as to the prematch betting. If you choose this wagering site because of your love for football, you will end up at the right address. The same thing comes true for fans of tennis, basketball, and ice hockey.
Furthermore, at SoccaBet you can place online live bets on handball as well as on volleyball. However, just like the prematch bets, the offer is limited. However, we like the fact that the betting site makes a note of the live betting on the pre-match wagers for competitions for which live betting is available.
Theoretically, you can place live bets around the clock. You also have the possibility to use the cash-out function and virtual live feeds. In fact, you can follow several games at once thanks to the MultiView feature. The odds for live bets are generally less attractive than on prematch wagers. Overall, as with prematch betting, the odds at SoccaBet seem solid, but there is room for improvement.
Bonus for new customers: Missing
Most betting sites do everything they can to catch the eye with an attractive bonus for new customers. In contrast, this bookie belongs to the few that do not offer such a bonus at all. Please do not misunderstand: You can benefit from three offers on an ongoing basis, but you do not find a bonus for new customers at SoccaBet.
App and website: clearly laid out, but you can only find the app via the mobile website
User-friendliness represents, unsurprisingly, one of the most important aspects of a betting site. After all, even the best betting offer doesn’t help much if the website or the sports book remain difficult to use.
SoccaBet’s impresses with a logical structure and a pleasant colour scheme. Both experienced sports betting fans and newcomers should get to grips with it relatively quickly. Moreover, at SoccaBet the registration as well as the login represent a child’s play, and this also applies outside of Ghana.
In addition, users at SoccaBet have access to a mobile site and an application. In our opinion, the mobile version works just as well as the desktop version. Because: It has the same clear structure.
However, we are a little surprised that only the mobile page contains a reference to the SoccaBet sports betting app, whereas it goes directly to the free download. However, all three options have in common that the loading times are definitely within limits.
Payment options: limited choice
Another shortcoming of SoccaBet lies in the fact that the payment options offered are certainly limited. To be more precise, you can make deposits exclusively with mobile money and vouchers in the SoccaBet shops. Of course, mobile money is extremely popular in Ghana, but a wider choice would not be improper. In any case, deposits are instantaneous.
The same applies to withdrawals via mobile money. You can also go to a point of sale for this. However, the processing time here amounts to one to two working days.
The data and money of the users are in good hands at SoccaBet. The betting site is licensed by the Ghana Gaming Commission and meets all security standards. If you still prefer to place bets offline, you can go to one of the shops.
Customer service: excellent performance
Furthermore, the customer service represents an important segment. Ideally, you will not need to use it often, but when you do, it should be relatively quickly.
SoccaBet ensures this with a variety of contact options. These include an email address, four numbers for phone calls, two each for messages on WhatsApp and Telegram, and a Skype account. You can also contact the SoccaBet shops.
Conclusion: Lovers of some sports are in good hands
This betting site lives up to its name. Because: As a football fan, you will absolutely get happy at SoccaBet. In addition, this bookmaker also has a good offer for sports betting on tennis, basketball, and ice hockey. This applies to both prematch and live betting. Apart from that, the selection is limited. And this two-tier society in terms of focus is also reflected in the odds.
SoccaBet’s website and mobile app, on the other hand, are definitely among the plus points. This also applies to the customer service, which you can contact via WhatsApp and Telegram. The smartphone is also essential for payments because apart from the SoccaBet shops, these are only possible with mobile money.
