Gmitbet is a perfect example of the limited options available in Ethiopia, with the platform only offering football and its related bets to the public.
The site is visually impressive and has the makings of what could ne day be a seriously strong portal but now it is all pastry without the puff.
The layout of Gmitbet Ethiopia is professional with a decent landing page, impressive graphics and a well-designed menu directory. It is such a pity that there is not much to offer, other than football bets.
There is no football jackpot, as offered by other betting sites in Ethiopia and this is an area that must be improved. Football jackpots across the world are of the most popular games to play. It is a shame, as there is little chance they can compete against Winner Ethiopia, or Betika ET.
There is no virtual play, discernible promotions, giveaways, alternative features like lucky numbers.
The Gmitbet landing page menu directory offers various tabs including ‘home’, ‘about’, ‘odds’, FAQ’s’ and a ‘bet slip’.
The left-hand flank shows the football markets on offer including most popular leagues, followed by a list of selected competitions across the globe. This list is not as exhaustive as many competitors but at least it offers some diversity.
The bulk of the home landing page is made up of the day’s matches and this is one aspect where the platform shines.
The bet-markets for each game are substantial and offer between 200 and 369 different bet-outcomes including over/under, btts, handicap, first half/second half, over/under, sum totals, goalscorers, odds/evens and many more.
The football bet-market offered on this portal is among the most diverse and wide-ranging on the continent and football followers will seriously enjoy the variety of betting options on offer.
The bet slip can be found on the upper right-hand corner of the main landing page.
The platform offers a link on ‘how to play’ as well as a comprehensive terms and conditions section, which is always a helpful tool in deciding whether a site is worth the punt.
The log-in and sign-up tabs can be found at the top right-hand corner of the landing page.
The site may offer one of the most exhaustive football match market, but it is lacking in many areas such as an accumulator bonus, meaning punters may choose another platform to stack bets.
The lack of any bonuses, such as a welcome or referral bonus is another area of concern, while banking options are not displayed on the landing page (nor is the pay bill number). Most sites across the world have the necessary banking options and how to play sections in convenient positions, as punters are looking for easy access to information.
The site’s terms and conditions section does not make allowance or show any bonuses, upcoming or current. It does have a large explanation section discussing and teaching how to place bets, and a step-step guide on the entire bet-market.
Under the how to play tab there are methods to deposit and withdraw but they are scant.
The only way to garner information on how to bank is by signing up. Once signed up a player can ostensibly top up their wallet by clicking on deposit, choosing a preferred bank (no bank name is given, nor Mpesa details. The same procedure is to be used to withdraw.
Gmitbet is a decent start-up site for football bettors but without adding to its armoury it could well become a limited space in a growing marketplace. The lack of banking details, Mpesa numbers, pay bill numbers, promotions, jackpots and bonus rewards is troubling and despite having a great looking site (by Ethiopian standards) this platform does not deliver anywhere near its potential.
