License of the bookmaker

The betting market in Ethiopia is at a developing stage. According to the current legislation, land-based sportsbooks are legal. There is a national lottery association in the country, which issues licenses. However, as of 2024, the authority has issued only one permit for a facility located in Addis Ababa.

Regarding online bookmakers, the law does not prohibit their activity. Therefore, an international license is quite enough to work on the Internet. It is on the basis of such a document that Melbet works.

The international license of Curacao guarantees fair play, payment of winnings in accordance with BC rules, use of official sources of information about sports events and high-quality machines from global providers.

Kinds of bets in Melbet

Melbet offers three classic types of bets:

  • Single. This is a bet on one outcome of one event.
  • Express. This is a bet that consist of at least two events in one coupon. To win, you need to guess the results of all the events without exception. The odds of all events in the express are multiplied.
  • System. It is a bet on at least three events that combine into accumulators. Unlike express, in this case the player has the right to make a mistake. For example, it may be enough to predict correctly 2 out of 3 Accumulators. The format of the system can be different and is chosen by the player when making a bet.

A full list of standard betting markets is also available to players:

  • Victory of one of the teams, draw.
  • Total.
