BetKing iOS App Download Guide

As we have mentioned, currently, there is no iOS app from the bookmaker. However, we believe it is something the bookmaker is working on. Therefore, iOS users can always use the mobile site till the bookmaker develops an app for the operating system.

BetKing Mobile Version

In addition to the mobile app, there is still the mobile site. The app and the mobile site are slightly similar. For example, you can access the two platforms on your mobile device. In addition, the outlay and outlook are the same.

However, despite the similarities, the mobile site and the app are fundamentally different. For example, you can get notifications on the app, which is impossible with the mobile site. In addition, the mobile app is more secure than the site. And finally, some features are better on the app, such as live betting and mobile streaming.

BetKing Old Mobile

There was a previous iteration of the BetKing mobile app. This was available in the earlier days of the bookmaker in Kenya. The app didn’t have all the features it has now. It had an older design, and the user experience was not so great.

Most bettors stopped using the app and complained to BetKing, and we believe that it led to the development of this second version. This second version is much better, and the team at BetKing is continually rolling out updates to improve the end user’s experience.

BetKing System Requirements

Some requirements are needed for your BetKing app to function properly on your device. Most modern devices have them, but if your BetKing mobile app is not functioning properly, check your device to see whether it meets the following requirements.

  1. The Android version of your device must be Android 5.1 and above.
  2. Your device RAM must be 1GB and above.
  3. The ROM of your device must be 100MB and above.
  4. The speed of your device must be 1.2GHz and above.
  5. It must be an Android device that can receive app installations from ‘unknown sources’.

BetKing App Bonuses

The BetKing team doesn’t have a welcome bonus at the moment, but the bookmaker has made up for that by offering other bonus options. The major bonus for the bookmaker is the virtual jackpot bonus. We will analyze this bonus and the other bonuses on the bookmaker below.

Virtual jackpot bonus

This is a major bonus from the bookmaker for both new and old customers. The bonus is a jackpot for bettors who play in the virtual section. To qualify for this bonus, you must place virtual bets, and whether the bets are successful or not, your bet slip is entered into the jackpot raffle draw.

And every day, the raffle draw is held, and the winner walks away with a nice amount of cash. You can participate every day since it is a daily jackpot, and you can increase your chance of winning by betting on more virtual games.

This bonus is only available when you bet on the virtual football section consisting of the Kings League, Kings Liga, Kings Italiano and the Kings BundLiga.

Multi-bet boost bonus

If you love to place accumulator bets, the bookmaker will reward you with this accumulator bonus. The Multi-bet boost is an extra percentage on the winning amount of an accumulator bet slip.

Not every accumulator bet qualifies for this bonus. To qualify, your bet slip must contain at least 5 games with a minimum of 1.4 odds per game. You also will not qualify if you cash out or if many of the games in the bet slip are voided.

Virtual league Acca bonus

BetKing extends the accumulator bonus to bets placed in the virtual section. There are a lot of games in the virtual section of the bookmaker. For example, there is virtual football, virtual racing and virtual number games. When you place bets in this section on BetKing, you qualify for an accumulator bonus of the winning amount on the bet slip.

Data free betting

You can experience data-free betting when using the mobile app. The bookmaker has partnered with major internet provider Safaricom to give free data to bettors using the network, whether they are on the desktop site or mobile app. With this bonus, you get 20MB daily to do your research and make predictions.

BetKing Mobile Payment Options

On BetKing Kenya, there is only one payment option: MPESA. This is the most popular payment option in Kenya, and most BetKing customers are familiar with it. With MPESA, you can deposit and withdraw funds from your account. In the next section, we go into detail about how to deposit and withdraw using the MPESA platform on the BetKing app.

BetKing App Review


The BetKing mobile app differs from the mobile and desktop sites in its hosting. Unlike websites hosted on public servers, the mobile app lives on your mobile device and is not accessible to anybody.

This means that the security on the mobile app is higher, and your personal data is safe. You just have to keep updating the app as the developers keep improving the security features. Also, ensure that you download the Betking app from the correct web address of the bookmaker.


A major distinction between the mobile app and the other platforms of the bookmaker is that you can receive notifications on the app. This is made possible by the smartphone notification feature. So the bookmaker can notify you to place pre-game or in-play bets on games.

The good thing is that BetKing always has odd boosted games so you can get notified on that too. You can also receive notifications to update the app, which is important to keep it secure.

Cash Out

The cash out feature is available on the BetKing mobile app also. This feature is especially useful when you are betting live and following the match. You can decide to cut your losses if you notice your predictions don’t have a chance of becoming true.

Not every match is available for cash out. So look out for matches that can be cashed out. Also, you will have to be decisive as the cash out amount and availability fluctuate as the match progresses.

The cash out amount is decided by the stage of the match and the probability of the prediction coming to pass.
