It is the peculiarity of Betpawa Online Sports Betting that only football and basketball events are offered in pre-match line of this bookmaker. Other sports are not available yet in both the BetPawa line and in the live mode. The user can select the sport (football or basketball) in the upper left corner of the site.
The line itself is located in the left block, where you can pick a country and a tournament, and then a specific match. The selection of tournaments and types of bets in the football line of the BetPawa bookmaker is quite solid. The “big five” of the European championships – the English Premier League, the Spanish Primera, the German Bundesliga, the Italian Serie A, and the French Ligue 1, are placed in a separate block along with the Champions League and the Europa League. Next, there is a separate block with popular championships, which include Portugal, the USA, Brazil, Australia and the Netherlands leagues. Then, below, players may find the block with the rest of the tournaments.
As for basketball, the NBA is at the top of the list of the basketball line. The main European and South American championships, South Korea, Australia, the Philippines, and the Asian Basketball League sit a little lower on the page.
Interestingly, the Ugandan football championship is absent from the Ugandan bookmaker’s line, although it is quite popular in Africa and can be found in all European bookmakers, including both men’s and women’s championships. On the plus side, the championships in Tunisia, Algeria, South Africa, Nigeria, Kenya, Ethiopia, and Angola are available for bettors.
The range of bet types for top events is sufficient, since there is a selection of all totals and odds that players may be interested in. Classic, European, and Asian handicap are available (double-Asian handicap is not provided). Bets on statistics are also there in place – corners betting, yellow cards betting, and individual player statistics betting.
There are events that are available for betting only in the LIVE mode. Punters can find out which matches can be viewed live in the “Upcoming” section (matches that fall into the pre-match line are not included).
No sports broadcasts are provided in the live mode, but users can take advantage of a graphic match tracker and basic statistics. To do so, they need to open the game page and click the “Statistics” button. Also, there players can familiarize themselves with the history of teams’ personal meetings, their position in the standings, and the transcript of the match main events.
Promotions & Bonuses
At present, online players can be awarded only one bonus, such as an increase of up to 500% to express bets. Win Bonus can be received at BetPawa by anyone who bets on parlays with 3 or more events. This bonus is counted based on the net winnings (the amount of the bet itself is not taken into account). For example, if you bet 1000 UGX on an accumulator of 4 events with the odds 4, you are entitled to a bonus of 5% and will receive such an increase: (1000 * 4 – 1000) * 5% = 150 UGX. The total win on the accumulator will be 4150 UGX.
The bonus percentage for each express is determined by the number of winning bets in the accumulator, which can be found in the rules on the BetPawa website. The minimum bonus is 3% for 3 events, and the maximum bonus is 500% if 45 outcomes are successful in the parlay.
The bookmaker also holds valuable prizes drawings in its stores.
