Premier Bet Uganda is one of the oldest and top sports betting sites in Uganda. The company was famously known during that cool analogue era when lining up and crowding at their betting shops was the thing. But unlike their peers like Sports Betting Africa and Kings Bet who have struggled to adapt to the changes in technology, Premier Bet Uganda has quickly transformed and is among the top sports betting sites in Uganda.

To understand it better and probably develop that burning urge to bet with them, Topbets has done the donkey work to bring you all you need to know in this detailed review of the brand.

Welcome bonus

And what a way to welcome a new visitor than offering a 100% welcome bonus on your first stake!

To unlock this bonus, you only need to make your first deposit between shs.2000 and shs.200, 000. Do not be tempted to make more than that!

But to make it fun, there’s a requirement you need to fulfil. After depositing, the punter will be required to wager on at least three different multibets whose stakes are equivalent to your initial stake and each of them should have a minimum of five teams with at least odd 1.5 each. The bonus expires exactly 30 days after the time your account was opened. Now that’s fun, Not so?

Additionally, if you place a minimum bet of shs. 1,000 on a minimum of ten matches and if your ticket hits the jackpot, there’s more prizes like motorcycles, laptops and smart phones to be won.

And that’s not all, there are quite a number of bonuses lined up as well.

The CASH-BACK bonus. You heard it right, there are cases where Premier Bet will refund your stake with some additions on top.

Now imagine this scenario: you place a bet with your shs10, 000 and are expecting to win shs.10, 000,000. At that time your ticks are filling up but then from nowhere, that stubborn team from London ‘refuses’ to score that winning goal and you lose your stake. Really, that hurts, you feel like cursing players of that team with the coach who failed to bring on that striker you dreamt will score in the 95th minute. Well, at that moment, don’t throw the curse, Premier Bet Uganda has you sorted, or at least consolation.

Premier Bet will console you by either refunding the stake or multiplying it depending on the slip. For any betslip that loses by just one team with a total odd of 25 to 44, the stake is fully refunded. From odd 45 to 59, the stake is doubled and refunded and goes on like that until odds950+ where Premier Bet Uganda multiplies the stake a hundred times and refunds you. Either way, you’re a winner, don’t you love it?

 Loyalty programme

You might want to understand why so many old guards have stuck with Premier Bet or why the new ones join and stick in there. Well, one of the reasons to your query is the Loyality (VIP) bonus program offered.

Premier bet elevates its loyal customers every week into a new status as long as you’re active. What being in the VIP groups means is that you receive a certain percentage of free bets from 10% upwards according to your status.

For those that don’t have much luck, there’s still something for you such as free internet, invitation to Premier Bet’s exclusive events and gift on your birthday. How sweet and caring is that? Mmh?

An there’s still more and bigger. Premier Bet Uganda offers one of the biggest bonuses in the country as compared to other sports betting sites. A bonus that increases to match the risk. From 3% bonus for a selection of three events to a whopping 500% for 50 selections and above irrespective of the stake. That’s one more reason to risk higher, not so?

Who is Premier Bet

Premier Bet was founded in March 2013 mainly around Kampala but has grown its roots to cover many parts of the country. They are licensed and regulated by the National Lotteries and Gaming Authority and transacts in Uganda shillings. They operate a hybrid system of both online ad physical shops.

The bookie previously accepted punters above the legal age of 18 but moved the ceiling to 25 to conform to the national regulations.

They offer a variety of services ranging from live sports events to casinos. Some of the sports offered include football, basketball, tennis, handball, volleyball and ice-hockey all in both pre-match and live.

Jackpots

The Premier Bet jackpot needs to be polished. The Jackpot is an automatic system that selects a winner randomly from the many players online unlike the preferred and fun choice where punters try their luck by predicting from a selection.

Is it legit?

Safety and security of the personal information and funds is paramount in this industry. Every punter would want to choose the best and safest websites to place his bets. Imagine striking a jackpot worth shs. 150, 000,000 and you can’t trace the people behind the company to pay you!

Premier Bet has been operating in Uganda for about a decade now with their headquarters in Kampala with a number of physical shops as well. The company is among the few that were awarded a license by the National Lotteries and Gaming Authority to operate in Uganda at the beginning of 2024. So, worry not, if you chose Premier Bet, you’re assured of its safety.

Registration

So, if I have been convincing enough and made your decision to join Premier Bet Uganda, then I will take you through the simple registration procedure.

It’s quite simple, login in to https://www.premierbet.ug/ and click register.

An interface like the one shown below will pop-up for you to feed your personal information.

You will be required to type your name and either your national identification, passport or refugee card numbers, and a legitimate mobile phone number registered under the same particulars. Then set up a new password and click register for the account to be created. The process is quite straightforward.

Deposit

There are two ways to deposit money into your Premier Bet account. First is the traditional way of depositing through their shops countrywide by physically visiting the premises. A customer provides his Premier Bet ID number and then the agents deposits the amount. The minimum amount is shs.1, 000.

But as technology grows, the number of customers and reach widens making it hard and inconvenient to set up offices everywhere, therefore, the advent of this has increased the use of mobile money wallets.

For both Airtel and MTN Mobile Money, go to MY ACCOUNT and click on it.

STEP 2 – click on deposit and feed in the amount you wat to deposit on your account

Step 3 – create deposit

Step 4 – an MMI message will pop-up on your phone, enter your mobile money password and confirm.

The money will be credited to your account shortly and ready to bet.

To withdraw, simply go to the MY ACCOUNTS tab and click on it. Under the choices, click on create payment and enter your password.

The money will be withdrawn to your registered phone number.

Customer care

Premier Bet provides a variety of channels to contact their customer care agents for assistance. This includes a direct toll free line [0800300400], an email support on support@premierbet.ug and a whatsapp contact [+256392883989]. Quite a variety I can say but they’re not always active. It takes time to find help most especially with the toll free and WhatsApp which, ordinarily, would expect a 24/7 support system. The Gals call-in and betPawa’s Call me back option beats Premier Bet’s customer care by far.

This is an area which the company needs to put much attention to putting in mind. For example, this inquiry on WhatApp took over 24 hours while their phones were unreachable!

Premier Casino review

Premier Bet’s focus is mainly on their sportsbook. The casino is generally safe as it holds a most-recent license from the national Lotteries and Gaming Authority. So, if you’re wondering whether it is a legitimate site that should sooth you.

However there are very limited number of games on offer.

There are video slots, table games and video poker. The casino both on the desktop and mobile browser as well as the application is somehow disappointing with its slow speed that may not give you the best gaming experience some other top sports betting sites would be.

Some of the most popular video slots include Book of Spells, Wild Lucky Clover, Golden Crown, Book of Dread and Wild Hot 40 but they’re less than 100.

Most of their top picks can be tried for free and are good for a rookie who wants some hands-on experience.

Besides not having the top trending games like Aviator, another disadvantage of using the Premier Bet casino is that they do not offer live casino. Honestly, I would give Premier Casino a 1/10 rating.

Instead, if you’re a fan of virtual sport, maybe Premier Bet’s Virtual Football would serve you better.

Speed and user interface

Honestly speaking, the speed of Premier Bet’s website is a little slow. Coupled with the fact that the pages are unnecessarily crowded and unappealing, the site would really get a low rating. The casino is almost stagnant and frustrates you whenever you want to try out.

The design looks to be heavy and takes a few more extra seconds to load especially on the desktop.

Sportsbook

Despite its not-so-cool appearance, the Premier Bet Uganda sportsbook is a goldmine. There are a variety of sports events and markets offered that leave both new and seasoned punters many options to gamble on.

The left side of the panel shows the markets with an easy-to-navigate option for the most favourites. The panel has a section to show the daily markets to keep the customer up to date with the offers.

There’s a virtual clock that gives an option to select the events expected between specific time intervals from those that are almost about to start in an hour, two hours, within a day and all those on offer.

If that doesn’t bring you quick results, a customer has another option to search the key words of the events he is looking for in the search tab or using the FAST LINKS below it.

Premier Bet also offers live bets for all the sports events in their markets.

The middle and right panel is dominated by the favorite fixtures where a customer can click to open and see additional markets provided for that particular event. For example, the image below shows the top matches selected for Tuesday 5th March.

By opening the Bayern Munich-vs-Lazio market opens more offers as seen below;

The middle upper panel just above the odds book shows an advertisement screen that announces the ongoing offers.

The account details and current and previous betslips are placed on the right side of the screen panel. For a new ticket, click on the ticket Icon well-labelled and place your bets. To view previous bets (whether won or lost), go to the MY ACCOUNT tab and check.

The same tab guides you to where you deposit and withdraw or edit your personal details.

The top bar on the interface directs you to the contacts to reach the customer care as well as the rules, regulations, term as and conditions.

Premier Bet has also simplified work by explaining and describing the different types of bets for a customer to understand. If you need any clarification, then the click on the “Description of Games’’ at the top right of the screen.

Additionally, there’s a PDF fixture that you can download to read offline or to navigate easily if you prefer the old-school methods.

The sportsbook offers markets in football, handball, table tennis, basketball, hockey, volleyball, tennis, baseball and national football league. Besides the normal bets on the match winners, goals and handicaps, Premier Bet also combos in the different Sports where fans bet on a combination of results and goals.

Virtual football

There’s more for the football enthusiasts. The website also has their famous virtual football games that last about five minutes.

The punters are allowed to place a bet on the Half time and final score, total goals and both teams to score either halfway or full time. A new round kicks off every five minutes creating the excitement to keep playing with a minimum of shs.1,000 per round. However, punters are encouraged to gamble wisely in this as the fun can easily turn into an addiction.

While Premier Bet’s sportsbook is rich in markets, the Casino option might disappoint you a bit. The catalogue is restricted to table games, video slots and poker. Some of the games include 5 Crown Fire, Book of Spells and Wild Hot 40. First, they don’t have the latest games like the now-famous Aviator or the Rocketman neither do they have any live games in the casino.

General experience

Generally, Premier Bet’s sportsbook and casino ticks several boxes to be ranked among the top sports betting sites in the country but there’s need to improve on the experience with the website. It simply needs to undergo a restructuring to make it breathe for easy navigation.

Premier Bet’s sportsbook and casino needs a revamp. The website offers quite good odds compared to Gals Sports Betting or betPawa as illustrated below (in some cases) and they have a plethora of markets to pick from.

For example, a quick look at the odds in the two UEFA Champions League matches played on March 6th, 2024 shows that they had the most competitive odds for the favourite teams Real Madrid and Manchester City and had almost twice the number of markets available in those specific bets.

Their casino and games are disappointing with just a few number of games to play unlike Gals and betPawa that have a plethora to choose from with big bonuses.

That said, their Cash-back promotion for losing a bet by a single selection beats other compeitors like Ababet and betPawa. Their Jackpot automatically picks its winners making it hard for a doubting Thomas to believe their chances. Unlike betPawa and Gals Sports Betting where a punter gets to make his selections, Premier Bet denies the punter that premium fun and ultimate satisfaction of playing the games yourself. The automation sucks the thrill and spills in it.

Comparison

in terms of odds in the sports betting, Premier Bet league beats the Gals Sports Betting and betPawa who are considered, in my opinion, the best sports betting sites in Uganda.

A quick comparison of two particular English Premier League matches shown below will prove that.

The above images also prove the fact that Premier Bet is way ahead of Gals Sports Betting and betPawa in offering many markets for the matches provided. The numerous and exciting combos give a player the chance to combine several choices for enhanced odds.

Both Gals and betPawa have set their minimum stake to shs.1,000 but Premier accepts the shs.500 coin thus catering for the lowest punter to place a bet. Their maximum cap on how much one can stake depends on the maximum payout limit which Premier Bet does poorly against the rest.

Premier Bet has capped its payout or rather maximum winnings to shs.250,000,000 while Gals has it at shs.505,000,000 and betPawa limitless.

Premier Bet, just like the two is legally registered and licensed in the country giving some insurance that they are indeed legitimate. The three are only limited to mobile money options but do offer physical cash or bank transfer whenever a puter has hit a jackpot that is more than what the mobile money carriers can handle.

However, Premier Bet’s slow and unappealing website doesn’t give them a big chance to outcompete the two giants. Gals and betPawa websites are seamless and very fast. They also offer very many options in their casino than the Premier Casino. That includes the famous Aviator.

Q&A

Are there any fees charged during payout?

Premier Bet does not charge any fee for both depositing and withdrawing money on your account, the charges depend on the mobile network that you’re using. But basically, both Airtel and MTN do not charge for withdrawal from your account directly but have a fees for depositing.

Depositing and withdrawal from Premier Bet’s shops are free of charge so maybe you can utilize that option.

Is there a limit on number of selections?

You can bet from one to as many as 50 matches on Premier Bet with a minimum stake of shs.500 up to any other amount as long as the maximum payout does not exceed shs.250, 000,000.

What happens to my bet if a single match is postponed?

If a particular match or number of matches have been postponed or abandoned and cannot be played/continued within 24 hours, Premier bet will render them void and therefore calculated as odd 1.

How long does it take before I get paid?

A winning ticket will be credited on your account a few minutes after the result is confirmed. In rare circumstances that the payment delays, then you can contact Premier Bet after three days. Once you have made your request to be paid and it’s approved, you have to withdraw the amount within 24 hours or else it will be reversed to your account.

If I bet on first half and match is abandoned in the second, do I get paid?

For example if you bet on Arsenal to win first half or score over 1.5 goals and the first half ends 2-0 then the match is abandoned in the second, your bet will be valid! Only bets whose outcome has not been naturally completed will be void.
