Have you ever predicted the outcome of a game but for one reason or the other you fail to place a bet on it and then your prediction turns out to be correct?
Any punter will tell you that it is one of the most painful things as you think about the odds and how much you would have made.
This happened to me just before the Bundesliga showdown between Dortmund and Bayern Munich.
A fellow punter and I got into football banter and we were trying to predict the correct score for the match.
His prediction was a 2-1 win for Dortmund while I predicted a 1-0 win for Bayern and to show him just how confident I was with my prediction, I tried to place a KSh2,000 on a 0-1 correct score bet but to my disappointment, my data bundle balance was 0.00MB and so I let it pass!
Imagine my fury when I checked the fulltime score only to realize that I would have made a cool 30k from odds of 15 if I had gone ahead to place the bet!
Disappointed with myself, I set out to find out if there are ways to place bets without bundles.
To my surprise, I found out that most betting firms do offer SMS betting but what intrigued me was Betika’s USSD betting option.
Not only can you bet before the game starts but you can also bet live during the match without using data bundles!
It does not matter if you have mulika mwizi (non-smarthphone), all you need to do is dial *644# and with a minimum of 2 bob in your Betika wallet, you will find an array of options from upcoming games, odds and live matches to make you a winner!
I have tried it several times since then and I will never miss out on a bet again due to data bundles! I thought you should know!
