With a series of sports, U-Bet provides quite a wide range of sports and markets for clients, specifically for football. And among other strengths of this bookie is Live In-Play, with a range of sports.

Now that you know about U-Bet, we break down all the details in our full review of U-Bet, a sport betting house found in Uganda.

💸How to Deposit and Withdraw

  • Deposit

Before making a deposit, you must be a registered user on the site. Log in and click deposit. You will be redirected to a page where you will type in your betting account phone number and amount you wish to deposit. After filling in the required information, click deposit and you shall get a mobile money prompt where you shall type your PIN to confirm the transaction. The deposit reflects instantly.

  • Withdraw

To withdraw, instead of clicking deposit, this time you click on withdraw, input the amount you desire to withdraw and click OK.

How to sign up

U-Bet has two options on how you can open up an account.

  • Through SMS

Go to messages and send the word UBET to 8008

You will get a reply saying with the following text: ‘Welcome to U-Bet! Be a WINNER today. Visit www.u-bet.co.ug/ug/restore/84284/DMVRT8 to set your password’

Once clicked, you will be redirected to a page where you could set your password as shown below.

  • Through the website

Opening an account at U-Bet does not differ from what we are accustomed to. It’s easy and fast. Just fire up the URL www.u-bet.co.ug and click on the red button on the top right corner of the website. All they need is your phone number and your preferred password. There’s also an optional drop-down of where you heard about the company.

  • Contact number.
  • Password.
  • How did you find us?
Sign-up options on U-Bet

According to the Government directive, anyone taking part in sports gambling must be 18 years and above. This, therefore, calls for the use of the National ID on all online gambling websites. But just like Gal Sport Betting, U-Bet also doesn’t ask for your National ID Number upon signing up!

Markets

U-Bet presents a vast range of markets to the bettor. Besides the most popular 1X2, Over and Under, a bettor has further options to select from like Double Chance, Both Teams To Score, Halftime/Fulltime, Handicap, Draw No Bet, Combos, etc.

Sportsbook options on U-Bet

  • Soccer.
  • Basketball.
  • Tennis.
  • Ice Hockey.
  • Rugby.
  • Volleyball.
  • Cricket.
  • Boxing.
  • American Football.
  • Baseball.
  • Snooker.
  • Darts.
  • Table Tennis.
  • Aussie Rules.
  • MNA.

Pre-match and live

Just like all platforms, U-Bet provides pre-match games for those that wait for fulltime results, and Live In-Play for those that enjoy the jitters of live-action.

E-Sports

Unlike many bookmakers that introduced e-Sports when leagues across the world had been paused, U-Bet didn’t jump onto the trend of the fast-growing industry of e-sports worldwide.

Casino

Still, unlike its competitors, U-Bet does not offer Casino on their gaming options.

How To Check the Status of your Ticket

U-Bet has an interesting feature where you don’t have to follow live score apps to keep track of the status of the games you placed. Instead, just log in, click on Check Your Tickets, type in your Slip ID, and you shall get full-time results of the games on your ticket.

🤙Customer Support

Traditionally, U-Bet has four (4) contact numbers for customer support and an email. There’s an additional live chat option on the site that is so responsive as we got a response in just less than a minute.

Social media-wise, the response is not as fast as on the website live chat as it will take between 5-10min for a response. Therefore, if you need instant support, we advise using the contact numbers and the live chat.
