Bookmaker Betway are enabling football fans to place bets on the 2017 African Cup of Nations via SMS – and you can also claim a sign-up bonus when you join.
The 2017 African Cup of Nations runs from January 14-February 5 in Gabon, where the Ivory Coast will defend the title they won via a penalty shootout against Ghana in the 2015 final.
There will be 32 matches over the course of the tournament and a host of exciting players are aiming to make their imprint, in particular the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Borussia Dortmund and Gabon), Riyad Mahrez (Leicester City and Algeria), Sadio Mane (Liverpool and Senegal) and Mohamed Salah (Roma and Egypt).
Betway are really geared up for this African continental championship and have a vast range of markets available for the individual matches, the groups and the tournament outright, including Top Goalscorer in which they make Aubameyang the favourite ahead of Jonathan Kodjia.
