Up to now, we have been insisting on how you should be analytical and shrewd before placing any sports bet. We have talked about different sports betting markets and gone a step ahead to explain when you should or should not try them. This desire to diversify is the main thing that pushes us into choosing what we believe are the best sports betting house in Kenya.
Shabiki.com overturns this solid base and completely rewrites the rules as you will see in this review.
Shabiki Bet: At a Glance
Shabiki bet matches take on a simple approach that pools 10 games into a Shabiki bet jackpot. All you have to do is predict the total number of goals that will be scored in each game on the jackpot list. The amount for this Shabiki bet jp will keep on increasing every time as long as no one gets the bets right.
Shabiki.com focuses on the total number of goals scored in a game within 90 minutes
How to Bet on Shabiki
If you are wondering how to play the Shabiki bet, I am going to give you a quick registration guide followed by the basics of playing the 10 team jackpot. I will also talk about the famous Shabiki auto bet and explain how it works.
Shabiki Bet Registration Procedure
The interesting thing about this platform is it is entirely mobile base. Everything happens through texts sent to their number 29063. The website is a threadbare informative piece without any registration or login option. This might be a setback to veteran punters – but again, you won’t be here if you want traditional sports betting.
To register, you have to send the word JOIN to 29063. You will receive a confirmation message. Your Shabiki bet account will be linked to the phone number you use to send that message. This means everything, from placing the prediction to depositing money will be through that phone number.
Even though it is free to register for the Shabiki Jackpot Mbao account, the technical cost of registration is Ksh2 since it will cost you exactly 2 shillings to send the message.
Placing a Bet on Shabiki.com
All the jackpot matches go down on Saturday and Sunday. You can place your bets before Saturday (or some minutes before the first game kicks off.) The upcoming games are displayed on the official Shabiki website or advertised on Citizen TV.
One important thing to note is that Shabiki Jackpot Mbao (SJM) only considers the total number ofgoals scored in the game’s 90 minutes.
All bets take this format:
- 0 = 0 goals scored
- 1 = 1 goal scored
- 2 = 2 goals scored
- 3 = 3 goals scored
- 4 = 4 goals scored
- M = more than four goals scored
You will have 2 betting options
1. An AutoBet
The Shabiki AutoBet is an automated bet that uses a random number generator to guess the above outcomes (0, 1, 2, 3, 4 or more goals.) This is pure gambling since you are sort of playing slots as you won’t have to analyze the games at all. It is good for people who feel lucky and don’t know football but a nightmare for professionals who feel safe when they analyze a game.
To place an auto bet:
M-PESA Ksh 20/- to paybill number: 290063, Account No: SJM#AUTO. The system will randomly generate a prediction and send a SMS confirmation. To automatically place Multiple AutoBets, M-PESA more than Ksh 20.
- Ksh 100 = 5 AutoBets
- Ksh 80 = 4 AutoBets
- Ksh 60 = 3 AutoBets
- Ksh 40 = 2 AutoBets
- Ksh 20 = 1 AutoBets
The Shabiki bet amount is Ksh 20 for a single line/bet. You can bet on as many lines/outcomes as you please. Each will cost you 20 shillings. Note that you will still incure the Ksh 2 SMS charge for sending the message.
2. An OwnBet
This is the more sound alternative that gives you the freedom to use your own game analysis skills or look for Shabiki bet tips to help you make a more informed selection.
To place an own bet, you will have to:
M-PESA Ksh 20/- to paybill number: 290063, Account No: SJM#<your prediction>, for example SJM#01234M0123. The system will send a SMS confirmation.
How to Deposit to or Withdraw from Shabiki.con E-Wallet
Once you sign up for an account, you will automatically get an e-wallet that should store your bet money. If you have money on your E-wallet, you can simply bet by sending a text to 29063 instead of using mpesa. The procedure is the same.
Send SJM#AUTO to 29063 for an auto bet or send SJM#<your prediction> for an own bet.
All deposits to the e-wallet are done through paybill number 290063
Shabiki.com pay bill number: 290063
- Go to your Mpesa menu
- Select Lipa na Mpesa
- Enter the PayBill Number 290063
- Leave the account blank
- Enter the amount and your MPESA PIN
- The funds will then be available in your E-wallet
How to Check Balance and Withdraw Money from Shabiki.com
To check your e-wallet balance, SMS the word Bal to 29063
Use the following procedure to withdraw money:
Send the word W#Amount to 29063.
e.g. To withdraw 200 send the word W#200 to 29063.
Mpesa charges will apply (Kes 15 for amounts below Kes 1,000 and Kes 22 for amounts above Kes 1,000). The mobile SMS charges of Ksh. 2/- will apply for sending the message.
The Shabiki.com JP bonus
Players who get 6 to 9 teams in their prediction right are eligible to a cash bonus. Those who get 3 to 5 games right will get a free bet ticket that they can use on the upcoming SJMs. Note that a free bet is only valid for the upcoming (next week’s jackpot) and will expire if you don’t use it. To use it,
Send the word FREESJM#AUTO to 29063
FREESJM#Ownprediction to 29063
The bonus is a shared fund. The bonus money will vary depending on the number of people who finished with enough right scores to get the bonus.
If you are among the players to be awarded a bonus, you will receive a congratulatory SMS showing
- The betslip that was awarded the bonus
- How many predictions were in that category (9/10 ,8/10, 7/10, 6/10)
- Amount of money that has been awarded
Shabiki.com will deposit bonuses below Ksh 140,000 to your Shabiki account. Anything above this will be deposited to a bank account. You will receive a call asking for your bank account.
