How to register a Betpawa account?

Betpawa is one of the most reputable bookmakers in Tanzania. The bookie was founded in 2012 by Rasmus Hansen who is also the current CTO of the company. Since its founding, Rasmus has been able to take Betpawa to greater heights as they have expanded to more African countries including Nigeria, Zambia, Ghana, and Uganda.

The betting site is known for the remarkable service it provides bettors. Also, one major reason bettors prefer Betpawa is the low minimum stake value which helps reduce risk. On Betpawa, you can wager on sports, jackpot, virtual games, and online casinos. However, most Tanzanian bettors prefer to wager on sports as it’s easy to understand and well relatable.

Betpawa Tanzania has a wide coverage as it covers major competitions and leagues in football, tennis, and basketball. You can bet on the English Premier League, UEFA Champions League, La Liga, Serie A, Ligue 1, Bundesliga, the NBA, and tennis championships. Less popular leagues are not left out as you can stake on the Argentine league, Belgium Pro League, and more.

When starting out gambling, the common mistake beginners make is choosing a bookmaker with poor services. If you make this mistake, you are positioning yourself for a frustrating betting experience. In this article, I will share how you can register a Betpawa account in Tanzania right from your smartphone and how to fund your newly created account.
