DafaBet may not be a name you’ll come across all too often, but that is not to speak of the bookie’s qualities. In fact, DafaBet is one of Asia’s most popular and widespread bookmakers. Their eSports offering won our attention and well-deserved praise. They are certainly taking it seriously and have already partnered with Fnatic as a team sponsor.

The betting offer at DafaBet covers full-time bets on handicap, over/under, kill number (even/odd) and outright winner. It’s not the most impressive betting market variety, but in comparison to other eSports bookies, it can be constituted as above average.
DafaBet has a special eSports menu on their website which is distinctively placed for all eyes to see. The eSports section not only has all games neatly categorized along with the matches on offer, but also a twitch.tv integration with a variety of streams from all games you can directly watch.
The games covered are Starcraft 2, CS:GO, League of Legends and Dota 2. We were pleased to see a number of important and minor leagues and tournaments on offer.
In-play bets at the moment are not being offered, but that may be subject to change some time soon.
DafaBet’s sports welcome offer is second to none. All new players are eligible for a 50% match up to €80 or $100. This is an amount you seldom see when it comes to sports welcome bonuses. Naturally, it is available only on your first deposit. The wagering requirements are x35 of your deposit and bonus at odds of 1.80 or higher. You can place single and combo bets when wagering.
DafaBet is online since 2004, and it still stands as strong as ever. The bookie is licensed by First Cayagan, a Philippine licensing body that’s primarily focused on the Asia market. Although the name is rather unfamiliar on the European market, it’s a legitimate licensor that also regulates 138.com – another giant name in the Asia and Europe betting scene.
DafaBet has a dedicated support team working around the clock. You can contact live chat anytime regarding any query you may have. The response times are fast, and the support agents are more than adequate to help you. There is also an international phone number you can call, as well as e-mail.
The one aspect in which DafaBet falls short is the payment options. You can only resort to Neteller, Skrill or Bank Wire Transfer, regardless if you’re depositing or withdrawing. If you are a credit card user, keep in mind that you can always transfer money to Neteller and use it for depositing.
Design and Navigation:
DafaBet’s website may not be the flashiest of websites, but its functionality is admirable, and deserved praise goes towards their eSports section. It can be found to the right of the “Sports Betting” menu right from the homepage. All in all, this bookie seems to be among the few that are well ahead of their competition in terms of eSports offerings.
