Launched in 2016 in Kenya, Powerbets is relatively new to the online world and they currently offer their customers an online sportsbook. Being a relatively new sportsbook, Powerbets are yet to build up their sportsbook, which currently offers markets on just the following sports; Soccer, Basketball, Tennis, Ice Hockey and Volleyball. Continue reading below to see what else Powerbets has to offer.
How to Download and Use the Powerbets Mobile App
iOS and Android
At this time, Powerbets does not have a mobile app available on the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store. However, Android users will be able to find an APK file for the app which can be downloaded through various third party sites, but we recommend waiting until an app arrives on an official store before making the decision to download an APK file, as this could harm your device in many ways. Users can instead use the online website through their browser. This works perfectly and looks identical to how an app would look if they had one, so there’s absolutely no reason to avoid using it.
Before doing anything else, users should register or login to the site by tapping the relevant icon sitting in the centre of their screen, coloured in green. Signing up is never a lengthy process and once completed, users are free to enjoy everything that Powerbets has to offer.
Powerbets App Features
Upon entering the Powerbets website you are met with their homepage and you will immediately recognise their unusual look in comparison to other sportsbooks. Powerbets site looks very dated for a site that was launched just a few years ago, however, their simple look makes it very easy to use. Punters can access Powerbets’ menu from the top left of the homepage which will bring up an A-Z list of their available live events and sports. From the centre of the homepage, customers can quickly add featured markets to their bet slip. Continue to scroll down and you will find a selection of Powerbets available ‘In-Play’ markets.
Powerbets does not feature the largest sportsbook with their entire collection of covered sports ranging from Soccer, Basketball, Tennis, Ice Hockey and Volleyball. Punters can also place in-play bets but will have to make do with just four sports which include Soccer, Basketball, Ice Hockey and Volleyball. Powerbets does offer a ‘Match Tracker’ feature which tracks and shows a visual representation of the events taking place in an event.
Powerbets Promotions and Offers
Powerbets does not offer multiple promotions for its customers, but you can expect to find a welcome promotion at your disposal.

Once this has been done, punters will receive their bonus which remains valid for three days, in which they are required to be wagered on odds of 3.5 or greater.
Powerbets Payment Methods
Powerbets certainly falls short in comparison to other online sportsbooks when it comes to their accepted payment methods. When looking to make deposits and withdrawals with Powerbets you can use the following methods; Visa, Visa Debit, Visa Electron, MasterCard, Maestro, Trustly, Skrill, Neteller and Paysafecard.
Withdrawals typically take around 2-5 days when using credit and debit cards, while e-wallets can be processed within a day.
Powerbets Customer Services
Any online gaming site needs to provide their customers with adequate customer service and
you can rest assured when using Powerbets, as they have all they supply all the usual avenues of customer support which are available 24/7, seven days a week.

Powerbets App Summary
If you are looking for an easy to use sportsbook that offers markets on just a few sports, then Powerbets may be perfect for you like their selection of covered sports is very limited. One of the few positives to Powerbets is that it is incredibly easy to use with them adopting a simple layout which has huge font. With a lack of sports offered it is very easy to find the event you desire, especially with their provided search bar.
