Dafabet was founded in 2004 in Makati, Philippines. Initially limited to the serving Asian countries, Dafabet has now set its goal to reach out to global players. It is licensed by the Curacao eGaming Authority for online gaming.
The company currently sponsors a number of teams including Norwich City FC, Celtic Football Club, Cadiz CF, and Burnley. It is also the official betting partner of Sussex and Durham cricket clubs. English superstar snooker player Jimmy White and cricketing legend Shane Warne are currently the brand ambassadors of Dafabet.

Selection of games
The website offers a huge selection of events for players to bet on, covering all major sports and tournaments. There are over 5000 live betting markets including FIFA World Cup, US Open, UFC, and NBA, and the majority of cricket matches, be they at the club level or international matches.
Dafabet is one of the best websites when it comes to betting on football, as it has an enormous collection of matches, right up to 3rd and 4th division leagues of countries like France, Italy, Germany, and England.
Over and above these mainstream sports, Dafabet also has a nice collection of niche sports like darts, handball, and beach volleyball, Dafabet also offers Indian games like kabaddi for players to bet on.
The website offers a decent number of deposit and withdrawal options to players. Players can either choose to make deposits via a bank transfer or use e-wallets like Skrill, Neteller, and ecoPayz.
You can also use your VISA cards to make deposits and withdrawals, although that can be a bit hit or miss from a country like India. Dafabet also allows deposits to be made by cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Etherium. Minimum deposits and withdrawals are €10 or equivalent.
One advantage for Indian players using Dafabet is that the website allows transactions in Indian Rupees, so players do not have to convert their deposits into a foreign currency.
One of the biggest drawbacks of Dafabet is that it runs two different sportsbooks on the websites namely Dafa sports and OW sports. OW sports has an old-school feel to it and has a limited number of sports, while Dafa Sports is a more modern sportsbook, with a wider variety of betting markets and sports.
Switching between the two, and making selections can be confusing, especially for a new player.
The user-interface takes a bit of getting used to and we find the overload of information on each page a bit over the top.
The website offers a handsome first deposit bonus to its players. Depending on the bonus code you use at the time of making your first deposit, you can receive either a 170% or a 60% boost on your deposit, for up to ₹30,000.
In addition to the new players, Dafabet also regularly comes up with different promotions for it’s existing players, in the form of rebates, prediction challenges, and cashbacks.
Players who face issues in their deposits or withdrawals, or have any other queries or need help, can reach out to customer support by calling them on their international helpline, or by mail and WhatsApp. The website has excellent live chat support which is available 24*7.
There is also an exhaustive FAQ section that addresses most queries and problems that a player may encounter.
While being predominantly an East Asian betting site, Dafabet is slowly emerging as a global betting site. Although not as slick or user friendly as some of its competitors, the huge collection of betting markets make up for its shortfalls. The website also has a live casino, and dedicated apps for Dafa sports, casino, and poker.
The big positives would be safety, trust, the massive selection of sports and betting markets for each sport. That is the number one thing that a player wants and not one person would feel disappointed with that aspect. A bit of fine-tuning to the interface is required that would elevate the experience to a whole new level.
