We know from our own experience that when it comes to betting sites, people first think of the bonus offers and the betting programme. However, the payment options represent just as much of a key factor. After all, the other two aspects don’t help much if you can’t deposit money. And as many betting enthusiasts as possible should find the option they want.
Now, as many countries know, mobile money has become the be-all and end-all among payment methods within a few years. An overwhelming majority of transactions takes place via mobile money, and this not surprisingly applies to deposits and withdrawals at betting sites, too. Therefore, the bookies made short work of it and largely offer exclusively mobile money options.
SportyBet explains to users in various countries (Ghana, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia) that it is working on cooperations for other payment methods. However, this is future talk. And this despite the fact that SportyBet offers betting enthusiasts in Nigeria the opportunity to make bank transfers as well as to pay with ATM cards. On the other hand, customers outside Nigeria can choose paybills as an alternative on the website. Below we describe the different payment methods and explain in which nations they are available.
SportyBet – online transactions with the payment option mobile money
At SportyBet, users from Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia therefore depend on mobile money. Moreover, you must complete the transactions via the bookie’s website. And the whole process works largely in the same way for all of them. Only the mobile money service providers change.
At SportyBet, for example, you can login online immediately after the registration at www.sportybet.com/gh or /ke or /tz or /ug or /zm and make the deposit. Then, in the relevant area in “My Account(Me)”, you must first enter the desired payment method as well as the amount. Then you must click on “Top Up Now” or touch the corresponding button. If you follow the instructions on your mobile phone correctly, the amount immediately goes into your betting account. Here, you get the corresponding confirmation from the betting site. If you click on the link or button placed there, you can immediately take advantage of the offer.
The payouts of possible winnings at SportyBet only work after an online sign in, mobile login etc.. Furthermore, the betting site requires that you enter the full name of the person to whom the telephone number is registered. Then you must enter the desired amount and click or touch the “Withdrawal” button. If the process is successful, you are taken to the confirmation page. There you find the button or link that redirects you to further pages of the SportyBet online offer. Below we show you the mobile money service providers in the above-mentioned countries minimum amounts for deposits and withdrawals.
