Before the introduction of Sportpesa, majority of the betting options available to Kenyans were international betting companies. While this is not a bad thing in itself, it disqualified lots of punters from the multiple benefit associated with betting as a result of the cumbersome deposit options available. Having properly studied the needs and fantasies of Kenyans about sports betting, Sportpesa introduced itself into the Kenyan betting industry as an indigenous pioneer of online betting in the year 2014.
Ever Since its inception, they have been offering quality betting options to new and existing punters. Understanding that the vast majority of punters prefer to bet on football competitions locally and internationally, they host all the major football competitions around the world. Not to be a linear sport betting site, they also host major sports competitions like basketball, Tennis, Cricket, rugby and horse racing. As a result of their consistency in delivering quality betting service by making people earn from what they love to do, they currently have the highest number of punters in Kenya with approximately 10million users every month.
Despite the several attractive gaming genres Sportpesa made available to its punters, it was still able to fix them neatly in such a way that doesn’t make the catalogue too clumsy. The web view is awesome and accessible via any Computer Operating system (Windows, Mac OS and Linux). Like all other top-rated betting firms intending to reach a larger audience, their website is easily accessible and fully functional on any internet enabled hand-held devices. Android, Windows or IOS phones will equally give you the access to place your stake on any game of choice.

That Sportpesa was the first to launch an indigenous betting form does not necessarily guarantee them top spot. They were able to attain top spot and have the highest number of punters because they extensively studied the betting pattern of Kenyans so as to provide the relevant quality service in the easiest way possible. Placing a bet with Sportpesa is one of the easiest things to do. Without an internet enabled device, you can place bet by using the Short Message Service or USSD option. All you need is the game ID, the team you predict to win and the amount you wish to stake. The SMS service also gives you the chance to make deposit into your account either from your M-Pesa account or Airtel money account.
Sportpesa is a licensed operator under the Betting Control and Licensing Board of Kenya (BCLB). Anyone familiar with the screening processes will agree with us that getting a license approved is not one of the easiest things to do as several conditions have to be met and security checks are carried out before the license is approved. The countless number of people that have successfully won games by placing bet with Sportpesa is another form of insurance that you will always get your earnings when you win.

Sportpesa might not have the highest number of game genres to choose from probably because they understand the needs of Kenyan punters or for some other positive reasons, however, they were able to compensate for it by providing multiple quality betting options in each game available for placing a stake. Below are some of the following game categories at their disposal:
For Jackpot 13 which is capable of earning you up to 22 million Ksh, all you need is to place your bet from the available thirteen games placed on Sportpesa’s jackpot page
In order to have an all-inclusive betting site for Kenyans, Sportpesa set its betting limit to as low as 49 Ksh and a maximum of 20,000 Ksh. With that amount, you are eligible to place bet on any game (s) of choice. As a strong advocate of responsible betting, Sportpesa advises that you should only place stakes you can afford to lose and also keep record of the time and money spent on betting. There is a provision to self-exclude yourself from betting once you observe any sign of desperation and addiction towards betting.
You can do that by sending your request to firstname.lastname@example.org and your accounts will be suspended for three months with the option to either re-open it or increase the suspension.
Sportpesa does not offer a registration bonus but you can earn a lot by simply referring new punters to the website. It makes up for this by offering one of the highest odd in the punters’ favour. However, Sportpesa occasionally offers promotional activities which are usually available for new and existing punters.
