betPawa Bonus Offers
betPawa Kenya Sportsbook does not have the lucrative welcome bonus offer that other sites have to offer but it does offer plenty of other promotions from time to time.
The best part of the promotions is that you can use the bonus money to bet and win cash that you can withdraw.
Win Bonus Promotion
So what’s the current betPawa promotion since there’s no welcome bonus? Well, they are offering what we’d like to refer to as the win bonus. Here’s how it works.
- Step 1: To participate, you need to have an accumulator bet that constitutes of at least 5 selections. In simple terms, an accumulator bet is a selection of bets placed in one bet slip.
- Step 2: You need to place a minimum stake of Ksh. 20 on your accumulator bet
- Step 3: If all your selections come to pass, you are awarded with a percentage bonus of your win. This could be anything between 10% and 100%
For example, if you stake on Ajax Win, Barcelona Win, Bristol City Win, Arsenal Win and Eintracht Frankfurt vs Chelsea Draw at odds of 100.01 and stake Ksh 1000, then your expected return should be Ksh 100,000.
However, according to the betPawa win bonus promotion, you are entitled to a 10% bonus of what you’ve won, so the expected returns will be Ksh 110,000.
Win Bonus Terms and Conditions
To participate in this promotion, you need to have satisfied the following conditions:
- You need to have a real money account with betPawa Kenya Sportsbook
- You need to place a minimum bet of Ksh. 20
- betPawa Kenya Sportsbook requires all the selections need to have a minimum odd of 1.50
betPawa Betting Markets and Odds
For an online sports betting site that seeks to be the #1 betting platform for Kenyan bettors, betPawa Kenya Sportbook is really trying when it comes to the betting markets that it has to offer. The range of options is excellent and almost every sport that you could think of is offered at the bookmarker.
betPawa markets cover the majority of football competitions in Europe including the English Premier League, the Bundesliga, Serie A, Spanish La Liga as well as the Europa and Champions League. During international events such as the Euro, Copa America, AFCON, and the World Cup, you can also expect a number of exceptional markets for this site.
betPawa Odds – How does it compare to other betting sites?
betPawa Kenya Sportsbook is a relatively new player in the industry and are still trying to become the #1 online sports betting site. Therefore, using the already established yet unfair platform SportsPesa, we can say that betPawa Kenya Sportbook offers some fantastic odds on Basketball and Cricket.
It appears to us that they are targeting the younger and more enlightened generation who are into basketball. It’s worth mentioning that the prices, especially for the big events, can shoot drastically, sometimes with odds of 0.5, offering bettors greater value.
But even so, it also offers decent odds for football betting evident by the gentleman who won a massive Ksh 1.8 million from a Ksh 200 bet.
betPawa Live Streaming and In-play
How’s the betPawa live streams and in-play platform? Well, we first need to clarify that betPawa Kenya Sportsbook does not offer any live streaming services. In fact, in the Kenyan sports betting industry, we are yet to see any sportsbook that offers live streaming services.
Despite not offering live streaming service, we were hoping that perhaps they would be able to offer some sort of feature that enables bettors to keep track of all the events as they happen but there was none.
Nonetheless, we really liked their in-play or live betting offering. In fact, we’d like to think of betPawa Kenya Sportsbook as the epicenter of new features thanks to its in-play betting offering. Thanks to this feature, you have access to instant odds updates on your screen during any sporting event offered during in-play. This way, you can place fast bets and get the best value of odds.
The brand has invested heavily in ensuring that they have a state of the art mobile sports betting platform. This platform is tailored to meet the high demand for the ultra-modern punter who seems more fixated on a flashy, sleek and interactive platform that has plenty of action.
While the site might not have the flashy and sleek appearance, it does offer a simple yet intuitive mobile betting platform.
There’s no application though, so you’ll have to do all the betting through your device’s browser. And once you’ve fired up the site, you’ll quickly agree with us that the team behind it put so much thought into ensuring that the site is:
- Fully responsive, especially for in-play betting
- Easy to navigate
- Easy to make deposits and withdraw winnings
In other words, the mobile platform has a number of ‘bells and whistles’ in all the important areas of sports betting.
betPawa Payment Options
The majority of the European sportsbooks or betting sites support a number of payment options including debit and credit cards. In Kenya, this is not the case. All banking institutions don’t support any form of gambling – including sports betting. This makes it hard for bettors to use their deposit or withdraw their winnings using VISA or MasterCard.
The good news is, you have the power in your hands, thanks to the innovative and very popular mobile payment option, M-PESA! This is the only option supported at the site and can be used to facilitate all of the betPawa Payment services.
To deposit and withdraw using this method, follow the steps below.
Deposit using M-PESA
- Get to your betPawa account
- Visit the M-PESA menu
- Select Lipa na M-PESA
- Click on Pay Bill and enter number 290020
- When asked to type in your account number write PAWA
- Enter the amount you’d like to deposit
- Type in your pin number
Withdrawing using M-PESA
- Go to the withdrawals sections
- Enter the required information
- Type in the amount you want to withdraw
- Click on the ‘Request Withdraw’ button to finish the process
Your winnings will be paid out 3-4 hours after the final whistle has been blown and the money will be deposited into your M-PESA account.

Our Review of betPawa Kenya Sportsbook
Overall, we can say that this is a good start for this newcomer to the competitive online gambling scene in Kenya. The website is definitely a good example of substance over style so far.
While some players might think this is a negative, we must say we saw it as a great advantage as the simple layout and theme removed the clutter that would have otherwise have made betting cumbersome.
