Meridianbet is one of the fastest growing online sportsbooks in Tanzania. It has gained a strong reputation across all the major cities in Tanzania. It is because of the remarkable services it offers. Members of this bookmaker can access about 4 million sports betting opportunities.
If you are not a member, you’ll be happy to know that Meridianbet registration process is simple. That is because the site has a nice web interface. It is quite easy to navigate through on all kinds of devices.
The vast majority of bookmaker websites nowadays are relatively homogeneous in design; a list of sports down the left hand side of the page, live events in the middle, and the bet slip on the right hand side of the page. Meridianbet are different, choosing an original layout that engulfs the whole screen. A blue, white and grey theme is adopted and the links to the different betting options (sportsbook, in-play, casino etc.) can be found at the top of the page.
When clicking on the sportsbook, a drop down list appears, with a number of different icons indicating the sports on offer. The dropdown is a horizontal bar which doesn’t actually list sports by name, but just by their small logo. The major sports have their own icon, but the smaller events are clustered together under what looks like a plan white ball. Page loading isn’t always instant which can be frustrating.
The centre of the page is devoted to both in-play and sportsbook action, with football at the top of the pile. When selecting a market, it loads beneath the previous one viewed, and therefore users have to click on the rubbish bin icon at the top right of each league/game etc. to delete that set of odds.
Customers can access an extensive statistics section (powered by Betradar), where a large amount of data can be found for a range of sports, enabling punters to make more informed betting decisions.
Meridianbet do have a web app which is loaded when accessing the site from a mobile device. It follows a similar colour scheme and customers can flick between the sportsbook and live betting.
About the meridianbet app
The meridianbet app is a web app. That is to say, it’s a mobile variant of the desktop website, which nevertheless contains the entire product portfolio of the provider. This app works completely without download, so you don’t need to look around in iTunes, the Play Store, another independent app store afterwards, and you also don’t require an apk. Take your mobile and with a click on the official website of the provider, you land straight in the app. Here it is irrelevant whether you use the iOS or Android operating system. As the offering from meridianbet adapts perfectly to your screen size, it looks the same as a natural app. At present, we are not aware of any native meridianbet app. From time to time, these can also have their pitfalls, as you can glean in the next section. In below table, we have listed a current range of compatible devices.
Instructions for downloading and installing app:
- Go to official bookmaker site
- Allow installing applications outside the Google play store: Settings > Security > Unknown sources > Allow > OK
- Click at “Download Application” above and click OK
- In notification drop down menu, select APK file
- Click Install

MeridianBet virtual sports
MeridianBet has two categories with virtual sports and one of them has a version for mobile device, too. The one that is accessible via the mobile website version and via the app, includes virtual football, tennis and different contestants with horses, moto sports and many others.
The number of live bets isn’t smaller at all. Almost all of the matches in real time come with live statistics, too, and for the most interesting events there’s even live streaming. This is how, for instance, MeridianBet offers live streaming service for football matches like Barcelona – Real Madrid, tennis matches with Roger Federer and so on.
In MeridianBet’s Casino category there are more than 300 casino games, but the unpleasant thing is that most of them are available only in desktop mode. The other unpleasant thing about the casino category is that the games here are available only for playing with real money and there’s no option for a test what is an option we can find in many other international bookmakers. However, if knowing that most bookies from our country haven’t even thought about the idea to make a casino room, MeridianBet’s casino category sounds like a real exclusive offer, no doubt.
