The online sports betting industry in Uganda is maturing and many continental brand names are making a mark in the country.
There are a host of well-established platforms and gsb.co.ug is another African giant trying to gain a strong foothold.
The gsb.ug site is diverse, offers a host of win-opportunities and provides punters with many of the amenities that show off a good all-round platform.
Gsb offers a jackpot, virtual play, spin-and-win, live in-play betting and a wide-ranging sporting code market.
According to the site’s terms and conditions the two jackpots ion offer include a 7-leg correct score pool and a 13-leg traditional 1×2 format.
The minimum stake for one prediction per jackpot is 2000 UGX.
There are consolation prizes for both jackpots, with punters still winning if they miss out on three of the respective legs.
The terms do not stipulate the maximum earning-amount but both are cumulative pools.
The site is well-presented, graphically sound and shows off a sizable bet-market.
The virtual play is of the highest order and offers game play in football, greyhound racing, horses, tennis and basketball.
The VP is indicative of an ambitious platform and provides punters with a host of win-opportunities.
The spin-and-win is a virtual roulette game, offering another decent bet-market for players who enjoy instant winnings.
The platform offers comprehensive ‘how to play’ guides and these links can be found on the right hand flank of the main landing page.
Gsb offers the punter MTN Mobile Money as the only method of playing and the in-detail explanation is well displayed.
There is a link to check out the site’s old platform and here it shows that there is an alternative banking method through airtel. But we must base this review on the current ‘new’ site.
At the bottom of the main landing page there is a link to bonuses but there are no reward promotions available at present.
There are no promotional banners advertised anywhere on both the old and new site, and the developers at gsb must take this into account, especially when go up against their traditional continental rivals.
The live in-play betting is extensive and covers the full gamut of sporting activities but the most popular seem to be football, basketball, tennis and cycling.
The diverse bet-market is one of the major plusses for the site and they offer one of the most comprehensive in the country.
The new gsb site is a definite improvement on the old version, and they platform can now start making a dent in the industry.
