Like most other sportsbook operators, Helabet places an emphasis on mobile betting and making sure their platform is user-friendly and compatible with most devices.

We tested Helabet’s mobile website with three different devices – an iPhone 13, a Google Pixel 2 XL and an older Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Upon reviewing and testing their website, we can confidently say that they did a reasonably good job at optimizing their website for mobile devices.


As already stated above, Helabet ng website is well optimized for mobile devices, even the relatively older ones should have no significant issues loading and displaying it. For the most part, this is achieved thanks to the way the website is built – all static user interface elements (buttons, images, frames, etc.) are cached by your browser. As a result, you only need to load these elements once when you initially visit the website. Subsequently, whenever you navigate between pages, these elements are retrieved from your browser’s cache.

All features and interfaces are also correctly displayed even on older devices. However, it might be worth noting that if you have a very small display, browsing markets and selections may be somewhat challenging. As an alternative, you can try using the search box if you know exactly what you are looking for.

On a separate note, let’s turn our attention to the user interface and all its menus that you are going to be using.

The website’s header serves as a central navigation hub which you can use to access various sections of the website, payment pages and account management pages. To open a full list of all navigation links, you will need to press on the three little lines located in the top right corner of the screen.

You will find a second sport-specific navigation menu right beneath the header. This menu has a toggle you can use to switch between pre-match and live games. It also has a vertical scrolling menu with a full list of all available sports. Each sport has an indicator next to it that shows how many games are currently open for betting.

Lastly, let’s take a look at the betslip, you can see it being displayed in the bottom of the screen in the middle. Once you pick a selection, it will be added to your betslip, which you can bring up by pressing the little icon in the bottom center of your screen. The design here is rather basic, you have the option to alter your stake, change several preferences and add additional selections.

Below are some examples of how Helabet’s online sports betting section looks like.

Let’s start off by visually splitting the website into four distinct sections, so we can review each one of them in greater detail.

First off, we can draw our attention to the website’s header, which serves as the main navigation menu between all the different sections you can access. This is also the place where you will find the deposit button, your current balance and links to account management pages.

The left side of the screen is where you can find the sports selection menu. This is the menu you would use to move between different available sports and tournaments. Each sports and tournament on this list has an indicator showing how many games are currently open for betting.

The center of the screen is where you can find a list that contains each individual game along with a preview of several most popular betting markets. Clicking on a game will replace the list view with the main betting interface, which will have an overview of your selected game, a scoreboard (for live games) and a complete list of all available markets.

Finally, the right side of the screen is where the betslip section is located. When you pick a selection from the betting UI and click on it, it will be carried over to your betslip. This is the place where you can add your stake, add more selections and eventually place your bet. You might notice a second tab called “My Bets”, you can see your active and latest bets displayed in this tab.
