In many other African countries, sports betting is becoming more and more popular and attracting less stigma across the continent.
This in part is due to the fact that betting operators have invested resources into opening brick and mortar shops, which insistently become popular.
The sports betting scene does very well due to the widespread popularity of European football, But these days, patrons of sports betting facilities have expanded their views on sports to include basketball, cricket, baseball, dog racing, virtual football, fantasy sports, and live casino games.
Ghana is no exception, and with the cellular penetration rate currently hovering at around 138%, users are turning more to mobile apps and websites to get their bets placed.
There are a number of betting operators licensed to operate physical shops in Ghana, as licensed by the Gaming Act, 2006 (Act 721) by The Gaming Commission of Ghana. The top five that stand out are Premier Betting, Safari Bet, Mybet, Superbet and Dreambet.
All these companies have done well to open physical shops and have helped by creating employment in the economy and raising funds through taxes for the country.
The Ghanaian punters want the best odds and variation of products all easily accessible on a single platform. So if they want to play not just sports betting, but Lottery, Fantasy Football, casino games like Poker, Baccarat and Roulette they can do so all on the same platform.
The major issue of contention with most players is how to fund their accounts and how to get paid out. And as Africabet always pursues the best partners to give best value to clients, the Dusupay payment gateway is available for players that use mobile money wallets to transact. Alternatively, there is also Visa Card and MasterCard payment options for deposit methods.
The most interesting thing about deposits and payments is how fast and seamless it is. For example, if you use your mobile money wallet to make a deposit on your account, the system records the mobile money wallet used to make that deposit, all transactions are encrypted and the site is fortified with a Thawte SSL certificate.
As a result when you now have won your mega millions, under your withdrawal option that same mobile money wallet is what will appear as the withdrawal medium, and once submitted and approved your funds are immediately deposited back into that mobile money wallet.
And the exact same methodology applies for the Visa and Masterdard deposits and withdrawals. You can also use BOTH deposit methods on the same account, giving you multiple withdrawal mediums to send your winnings to!
Online betting in Ghana has never been easier and more convenient!
