There are many online sports betting sites appearing on the Ugandan scene and the battle for consumer supremacy will likely be fought out by a handful of sites.
There are a host of smaller sites looking to eke out a stake in the industry and ababet.com is one such platform.
Ababet is a pretty basic online sportsbook, offering a football bet-market, but much else.
There is no virtual play, jackpot nor a wide variety of sporting codes, so unless you want to bet solely on the football book there is not the site for discerning punters.
It is a pity because the web and mobi sites are decent-enough looking and are well laid-out and are graphically superior to many other middle-to-low platforms in the country.
It is the complete lack of bet-diversity that will hamper the progress of this portal.
There is no discernible live in-play betting and this is uncharacteristic of almost every online bet platform in the world.
The main landing page offers a football spread but there are only a handful of fixtures to choose from and the bet-market on each game to 20 possible wagers, including half-time/full-time, handicap, odds/even and a few more.
The main menu directory is normally a strong indication of what delights the platform holds and it is here where the weaknesses are exposed straight off the bat.
There are no links to any form of bet-activity apart from a tab for football. The rest could well have been in the fine print at the bottom of the page, alongside FAQ’s.
The site does have a banner showing the three banking options available, namely MTN Mobile Money, airtel and Qickpesa, as well as ‘how to deposit’ and ‘how to withdraw’ tabs.
This must be one of the shortest reviews written for an online sports site, and this is because there is almost nothing to review.
