There is no doubt that the market for providing gambling services is constantly growing every year. Almost every month, new bookmakers appear, displacing the “Oldies” from this arena.
However, there is one bookmaker who does not seem to be concerned at all. After all, it has been the leading betting operator in Tanzania for 19 years.
Our review today is dedicated to MeridianBet TZ.
History of the MeridianBet
MeridianBet Tanzania, as part of the Meridian Gaming Ltd Group, was founded in 2001.
Meridian is a well – established gambling group that currently operates in 18 countries in Europe, Africa and Latin America.
Meridian also offers its customers a range of proprietary licensed gaming products, such as casino games, slots, and roulette.
Most of Meridian’s business is direct B2C, but it also has an indirect B2B franchise model, where the use of proprietary sports betting technology is fully licensed to local partners who operate under the brand.
The popularity of the brand
MeridianBet TZ is one of the most popular bookmakers in the Tanzanian online betting market.
In addition, the bookmaker has a wide presence on social networks, as well as channels on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Youtube.
For example, he has more than 1,750 followers on Twitter, which is a channel aimed at the company’s Tanzanian audience, and he doesn’t have an English feed.
YouTube MeridianBet contains a range of videos from tutorials to ads, and the channel has a total of 285,000 views.
As for the media content, at the moment the bookmaker has not signed a single well-known brand Ambassador, and perhaps this is one of the marketing tactics aimed at wide global distribution.

Rules of the game in MeridianBet
The rules of the game at the bookmaker are set out in a separate section. They meet international standards accepted in the betting environment. In particular, it is specified that the bettor must place bets on events that are present in the pre-match or live line in accordance with the current coefficients. Bettors must pay their own taxes on winnings, taking into account the legislation of their country.
There are a number of possible violations on the part of the user, which may result in sanctions from the betting company:
- Registration of more than one account per person;
- Providing knowingly false information about the user’s identity;
- Betting on forks and corridors, and other gray schemes for earning money on sports betting;

These and some other violations may be followed by a penalty in the form of a significant reduction in the limits for bets, as well as the blocking or cancellation of the account.

If evidence is found, the company reserves the right to confiscate any balance on the player’s account. MeridianBet may also initiate legal proceedings to collect any debt owed to the player. In the event of any dispute, all decisions made by the Casino will be final.
For all customers, it offers various self-protection measures to make sure that their gambling experience remains responsible. Clients have several self-limiting tools at their disposal, which are valid until the entire time period is agreed upon.
- Personal limit
All clients have the option to reduce their deposit limit to an amount below the standard limit. Any request to increase personal deposit limits can only be processed after 24 hours at the earliest. However, the request to lower the limit will be implemented immediately.
- Bid Limit
Each user can set their own bid limit.
- 24-hour betting limit-the client decides what is the limit of funds available for wagering within 24 hours
- Weekly bet limit-the client decides what is the limit of funds available for wagering during one week
- Monthly bet limit-the client decides what is the limit of funds available for wagering within one month
- Loss limit
- 24-hour loss limit-the client decides what the value limit of lost bets is within 24 hours within 24 hours
- Weekly loss limit-the client decides what the limit is for the value of lost bets within 24 hours for one week
- Monthly loss limit-the client decides what the limit is for the value of lost bets within 24 hours for one month
Loss and bid limits are checked every time a customer logs in to the site. If the corresponding amounts exceed the stated limit, such customers will not be able to place a bet until the time period corresponding to the stated limit expires.
- Function timeout
It offers all customers the opportunity to time out, whether for 24 hours, 7 days or six weeks. During the timeout, customers are only allowed to withdraw any remaining funds from their account balance
All clients can exclude themselves from further interaction with the playing staff or make a request by email. Users can also exclude themselves from the game from one day to 5 years or for an indefinite period.
- Reality check
Each user can set a time limit before the start of gambling, which, when reached, activates the previously set alarm. This is an effective tool for storing information about the time spent on the site.
MeridianBet offers its customers from Tanzania a range of betting options.
However, the bookmaker does not offer anything outstanding to its users. Everything is done soundly, but at an average level.
Sports betting is its focus, and all the sports currently offered in one form or another are fully represented here:
- Alpine skiing;
- American football;
- Cross-country skiing;
- Formula 1;
- Horse riding;
- Ice hockey;
- Martial art;
- Moto GP;
- Rugby League;
- Rugby Union;
In addition to all this, customers can also place bets in the e-Sport section.
There are separate categories:
- Sports today;
- Top leagues;
- Special offers;
The coefficients for the Tanzanian market are average: from 2.00 to 2.75. the Margin is also at an average level: from 5 to 8%.
The office line has an interesting appearance. Although football events prevail in it, their advantage is not as great as in other bookmakers. A big plus is that the office has a non-uniform line. Here you can find the Italian hockey championship, the Finnish basketball tournament and the Bahrain football Cup, but still the line focuses on European national tournaments and local “home” leagues.
A distinctive feature of MeridianBet is that the office gives almost the same list for all events, regardless of the level of the tournament and match. For major tournaments, the list is small, but in the lower divisions, not every office will give a list consisting of 40 betting markets.
MeridianBet in Live-betting mode offers a pretty good list for many sports events. Sometimes, it exceeds 100-150 markets. However, the bookmaker has almost no useful options in Live mode (even sane search). Note only the color change of the coefficients depending on their movement.
Live bets are primarily bets on hockey and football, while other sports are poorly represented in the line.
Live-Betting match schedules are also subject to change. If a sports event that was bet on in real time is interrupted:
- For matches, postponed or cancelled, which were subsequently not continued or postponed on the same day, all bets will be void;
- All bets in the event that you transferred on the same day, will be in effect;
- All bets made on the expected result, materialized on the playground, will be counted as winning;
- All bets made on the expected result, which did not take place on the playground until the interruption of the match will be void.
For players from Tanzania and Europe, the «Online broadcasts» section is available on the website in the App.
The broadcast of matches comes with a minimum delay – up to 5-10 seconds. And most often, this is not the fault of MeridianBet, but rather connection problems on the Internet provider’s line.
To enable live streaming and go to Live-betting, go to the appropriate section in the app menu and select an event.
