The poor internet connectivity in the country, said to be at a 5% level makes Ethiopia online sports betting a narrow field, but there are a few Ethiopia betting sites that offer a half-decent attempt to garner the market share.
UPDATE: LOOKS LIKE ANBESSA HAS CLOSED DOWN
Anbessabet.com is one of the better online betting sites and while it only offers a bet, market for football, the lay-out and general look and feel of the portal is professional.

Anbessa Bet offers a large football market with action from leagues all over the world, including the EPL, Bundesliga, Ethiopian Premier League, Champions League, Europa League, Serie A, La Liga and Ligue 1 and Eredivisie.
The football leagues can be found running down the left-hand flank of the main landing page.
The bulk of the landing page shows the latest matches available each day and these range from obscure action all the way through to the elite league games.
The bet slip is situated on the top of the right-hand flank of the landing page.
The main menu directory allows punters links to live in-play betting, ticket check, FAQ’s, Help section and a ‘contact us’ tab.
There is no discernible football jackpot, and the only bet activity is single or multi football wagers.
Anbessa Bet Promotions
There are no betting promotions on offer.
Anbessabet players can go to one of their store locations, deposit money and they will be given a specific code, which they can insert on the website which allows them to play. They can then play with this e-wallet money until they want to withdraw.
After pressing the withdrawal link, they will be given a code that must be taken to a local outlet to cash in their winnings.
To sign-up a player can find the link at the top right-hand corner of the main page or scroll down to the menus at the bottom.
The site’s terms and conditions can also be found at the bottom menu directory and covers all the basic information.
The minimum and maximum bet amounts and wins can be found under the terms and conditions by clicking on the appendix tab.
According to this information a minimum bet is 10 Birr and the maximum winning amount is 100 000 Birr.
There is also a small explanation on how to play a multi-bet. According to this info they use an example of a tennis match, with Nadal winning, plus the winner of the 2000 Guineas.
There is no bet market on the site proper for anything other than football, so this explanation is a little confusing. But the essence of how to place an accumulator is given.
