Review of the bookmaker Paragonbet from Legalbet

Paragonbet, owned by Paragon Gaming Limited, is one of the leading online betting platforms in Uganda. In just a short period of time since its inception, the bookie has amassed a late number of users. It comes as no surprise that they will be able to reel in such numbers given the plethora of betting options they offer and an overall delightful betting experience they assure. They are licensed by the Minister of Finance, Planning and Economic Development of The Republic of Uganda with trading name Paragon Gaming Limited and license number 036.

Odds — good

We calculated the margin for Paragonbet by analysing the odds they offer. We further ranked them in one of the following three categories:

From 1% to 5%: Good value

Over 5% to 7%: Average value

Over 7% to 10%: Poor value


We’re getting our results by taking into account the odds for final result outcomes measured in line with the total goals scored for different football leagues. By getting the average results using this method, we were able to obtain the margins for each league and also the overall betting margin for the bookmaker.

Paragonbet has an overall average margin of 3.27% for football and falls in the good value category. In the first section using odds from the English Premier League, the margin is at 2.41%. The second section with Spanish La Liga and Italian Serie A, has a margin of 2.39%. Finally, by counting the English Football League One, Austrian Bundesliga and Polish Ekstraklasa, the margin is at 5.01%.

Betting options — good

Despite being a relatively new online betting platform, Paragonbet has proven to be one of the few websites in Uganda that deserves some accolades. The extensive sports it offers seems to be one of its likable qualities.

Range of Sports: As of the time of this review, Paragonbet records over 25 sports enlisted in its sports menu. The sports include the popular ones like football, basketball, hockey, tennis, volleyball, golf, rugby and some not-so-popular ones like snooker, handball, baseball and Aussie rules.

If you are an esports lover, you would like this bookmaker as it has the popular Starcraft, Dota-2 and Counter-strike amongst many others on its menus.

It is also worthy of noting that Paragonbet doesn't just focus on sporting events. Non-sporting events are included in the mix too. On the platform, punters can try their hands-on amazing odds on politics, music, and TV shows.

The virtual section of the platform would be perceived as delightful to any virtual fan. They boast a virtual selection that contains the finest games, with odds that are rare to find anywhere. They have a total of 49 different games in this section. These include nine games under Betradar virtuals and 40 under the Golden race category.

Live Casino is also included on Paragonbet, which is quite good for business, considering the number of casino players they must have gained as a result of that. They also have a jackpot category available but as at the time of this review, the page was more or less empty.

Finally, their user interface is very vibrant and extremely colorful. With a beautiful interface and the ease of navigation through the site, a premium betting experience is assured.

Range of Bets and Markets: While it is undeniably a great thing to have a fleet of sports to pick from, it is more important to have those sports stacked with a plethora of interesting betting options.

Paragonbet is well aware of the importance of having several betting options, and the wide selection of markets they offer is proof of that fact.

For football lovers, there are over 1000 betting markets available for most football events. There's no type of betting option you can't find here. You are more likely to find new options you will never get to see in most of the other Ugandan bookmakers than to miss one.

Interestingly, this is not any different from what is attainable in the basketball section or other sport categories. For the basketball category, you can find as much as 500 options to bet on, while on other sports like cricket, you can find 150 markets per event. This is probably one of the best you can see in the industry.

Betting limits: The amount of money that can be wagered will be enough for most bettors. Like you’d expect though, the limits are getting lowered when it comes to betting on minor leagues.

In-play — good

With live betting, punters are allowed the privilege of betting on live games. This helps them exploit the information they have already regarding the match to make betting decisions.

Paragonbet makes live betting fun in every ramification. Firstly, they offer a plethora of options as you would find on matches. So, there is no limitation whatsoever.

Furthermore, the highly responsive live updates with the right parameters allow for a premium betting experience.

What we love about this section of Paragonbet is the fact that they have as much as 12 different sports available for live betting. As at the time of this review, they have sports like football, basketball, tennis, ice-hockey, volleyball, handball, baseball, rugby, table tennis, beach volley, e-football and esports games.

Taking football into consideration, they have well over 60+ options available to wager on for live betting. The likes of basketball, tennis and hockey are also well stacked with at least 30+ options for each.

There is no streaming option with Paragonbet but they have a detailed coverage of games, especially for football. You can follow games live with a 2d visual representation (depicted with dots) of what is actually happening on the pitch.

We can boldly say they have a very impressive live section with evenly spread options across all sports to go with. They get our nod of approval in this regard.
