SMS Betting

Betting by SMS is easy once a customer knows the Game ID. Game IDs can be found on the website for each game or by sending the keyword “Games” to 29663

PLACING A SINGLE BET 

To place a single bet you need the following details:

  • Game ID
  • The prediction (e.g. a 1X2 bet: Home Win = 1, Draw = X, Away Win = 2)
  • The Stake Amount

Then send an SMS to 29663 with “Bet” followed by a space and then the bet instructions:

  1. SMS Format: Bet(space)GameID#Prediction*Amount
Example
  • A match you has the Game ID 30250. And you predict it will be a Home Win (1) and you want to bet Sh.1000 – then you would send:
  • Bet 30250#1*1000 to 29663:

PLACING A MULTI BET

Placing a multi bet by SMS is the same as placing a single bet except you add a “+” between each leg.

To place a multiple bet you need the following details:

  • The Game IDs (each leg)
  • The prediction for each Game ID
  • The Stake Amount

Then send an SMS to 29663 with “Bet” followed by a space and then the bet instructions:

  1. Bet(space)GameID1#Prediction+GameID2#Prediction *Amount
Example:
  • Customer wants to place a bet on a 3 leg multiple with Game IDs 30250, 30255 & 30260
  • They believe all games will be a Draw (X) and you want to bet Sh.1000 – then you would send:
    1. Bet 30250#X+30255#X+30260#X*1000 to 29663:
IMPORTANT
  • The bet is deemed to have been placed once the Bet ID has been created by the Playabet system.
  • You will receive confirmation message with the Bet ID via SMS (unless there are network delays)
  • You are limited to 160 characters on SMS, so although 20 leg multiples are allowed on the playabet.co.ke website, it is advisable to keep your multibets shorter (max 15 legs) when using SMS.
  • When sending Games to 29663, not all Game IDs will be returned as there are message length limitations
  • SMS betting is not limited to 1X2, see the codes below
