Dafabet was founded in the Philippines in 2004, from where it promptly set about expanding across Asia before going on to become a global betting brand. Based solely online and on mobile, Dafabet has a comprehensive range of sponsorship deals in the UK, Spain and Africa, where it signed marketing agreements with Aston Villa, Everton and Cadiz in Europe and Shabana and Wazito football clubs in Kenya, among others. Dafabet offers worldwide in-play betting on sports markets, including major sports like soccer and tennis as well as more niche online sports betting in pool and volleyball. Dafabet is the major betting partner of European Basketball, a sport that continues to grow in both popularity and the number of sports bets online it attracts.

Having succeeded in the Asian market, Dafabet increased its UK presence through a series of sponsorship deals, particularly by partnering with newly promoted clubs. Dafabet signed two year deals with Burnley, Fulham, Norwich and Cadiz, among others. Dafabet also expanded its profile into the world of esports with sponsorship of fnatic, one of the most successful esports teams in the world. Despite that sponsorship, Dafabet does not offer comprehensive esports betting as standard, unlike many other online bookies like Bet365, 888 Sport and William Hill. However, Dafabet has spread out its sponsorship across many sports and leagues to market its brand, including the 2014 World Snooker Championship and Masters.
Dafabet prides itself on providing a user friendly experience, with a particular focus on mobile sports betting. The company’s main website features direct links to its mobile sports betting site, and the mobile first approach has helped Dafabet to grow in popularity and stature. In 2017 Dafabet won the prestigious Sports Betting Community sponsor of the year award for the number of sports it worked at, the community engagement it achieved and the feedback the betting company received from its partners. Dafabet offers 25+ sports to bet on, both live and pre-match, with its distinctive focus and styling always leaning towards mobile betting.
Bonuses and Promotions
Most online bookies offer sign up or welcome offers as an incentive for new customers to join, usually in the shape of Bet And Get offers or Profit Boost promotions, in the case of Leo Vegas and others. Dafabet, though, doesn’t currently offer any kind of welcome bonus. However, it does offer free bet promotions based on its sponsorship deals. At the start of the 2020/21 season, Dafabet promotes its sponsored clubs, Burnley, Celtic and Cadiz, by offering a £/€5 free bet to any Dafabet online customer who correctly predicts the score of those clubs’ matches. Usually online bookies will include terms that see customers required to bet on those outcomes in order to qualify for the free bet offer, but Dafabet offers these promotions as free-to-play incentives without any betting requirements attached.
Dafabet features a comprehensive selection of UK and Irish horse racing meetings, including smaller weekly meets across the countries as well as major festivals like the Cheltenham Festival, Royal Ascot and Irish Grand National. Dafabet offers Best Odds Guaranteed across all of its UK/Irish races, and features ad-hoc betting opportunities when major tournaments such as the FIFA World Cup, UEFA European Championships and US Open come along.
Because of the complexities of sports licensing, Dafabet doesn’t currently offer any live sports streams through its web or mobile sports betting services. If and when that changes you will be notified by Dafabet customer service to make the announcement.
While Dafabet online sportsbook takes a mobile first approach, it doesn’t offer a dedicated app service. However, you can log in through your chosen web browser on your cell phone and bookmark the Dafabet mobile sportsbook to ensure you have quick links to your account page.
Dafabet does offer some Cash Out services, though this is dependent on the sport and the market. Simple 1×2 bets on soccer games often feature cash out services, for example. If your bet has a Cash Out value a cash out icon will appear on your My Bets tab.
Dafabet offers Visa, Maestro and Mastercard debit cards in the UK and both debit and credit cards across Europe, depending on the credit restrictions of each territory. You can also deposit using Skrill and Neteller, which offer higher deposit and withdrawal maximums than credit or debit cards. The maximum deposit for Skrill and Neteller is £60,000 and €75,000 (compared to £/€3,000), while the maximum withdrawals are the same amounts for Skrill and £31,000 and €39,000 for Neteller.
Yes. You can access Dafabet online Live Chat 24 hours a day. You can also contact Dafabet customer services through Facebook or Twitter, email your territory’s support @dafabet.com or alternatively contact Dafabet via phone.
If one word could describe Dafabet’s site design and operation it would be “unfussy”. All of the sports betting options are accessed easily through handy tabs organised through highlights and coupons, while the full sports list sits neatly ordered on the left. Placing online sports bets with Dafabet is easy as the site’s betting markets and bet slips are clear and easily used, while the Cash Out feature is welcome if not present for every selection. Dafabet’s customer service options are various and geared particularly for online and mobile use, though more traditional customers can also contact them by phone. Dafabet lets itself down in the payment options department, as it doesn’t offer PayPal, Apple Pay or Google Pay. That said, Dafabet’s deposit and withdrawal limits are competitive, not least on Skrill and Neteller.
