Furthermore, to have a good overview of the Kenyan bookmakers, we’d recommed reading our Betin review.
Sportpesa Sportsbook Kenya
Sportpesa is Kenya’s leading bookie, a local bookie with global standards. The company is a force to reckon with in the local betting industry and has even made inroads into the British betting scene. In this review, we will tell why this is, and how best you can take advantage of the situation to make the most out of your betting experience!
Sportpesa Promotion code
As of now, there is no Sportpesa promotion code. You simply have to register on the site using the links on our site for the best offers the bookie has in store. However, whenever Sportpesa decides to run a bonus promo with any sort of code, we will be the first to update our site and tell you all about it.
Sportpesa Bonus Promotions
As of now, there is only one Sportpesa promotion – the Sportpesa jackpot promotion. It is not exactly an official promotion but a rewards scheme for those participating in the bookie’s weekly jackpot. The terms are simple, win the jackpot and walk away with the entire stash of cash or get 10, 11, or 12 predictions right and walk away with exciting sportpesa bonus rewards. Predicting 12 games right gives you something in the region of 4.000.000 Ksh – a great bonus by all measures! Check out this tweet by Sportpesa’s official Twitter account for confirmation.
Where to use your bonus – Sportpesa Live Games
When Sportpesa started out, they didn’t have a live games segment! Many seasoned punters who love the thrill of in-play betting complained about this, especially on social media. But in late 2017, Sportpesa added the live betting segment. A special set of games is available on the site 24/7 for live betting. This is obviously a very good way to make money as it allows you to gauge the progress of the game before placing your bet. You also get to ‘watch’ the game live through the live-changing statistics.
A Verified bookmaker
One of the biggest factors to consider when registering on any betting platform is credibility. Is the bookie registered? Is it officially allowed to operate as a betting/ gambling site in your country? The good news here is that Sportpesa is a fully registered local company. It has a betting license that allows it to accept local customers. This means you can bet on their site with the confidence that the company is verified, professional and that the GOK is watching over them on your behalf! This is in contrast to betting on unlicensed/ unverified sites that are often linked to unscrupulous individuals with ill intentions.
Sportpesa Sportsbook Partnerships and Sponsorships
Sponsorships and partnerships with known brands are some of the best ways to market yourself and show credibility. Sportpesa sponsors multiple sports teams that Kenyans follow with a passion.
Within the country, Sportpesa swooped in to save the ailing Kenya Premier League with a hefty financial backing. The company is also the shirt sponsor of Gor Mahia – Kenya’s most decorated football team. They also sponsor Gor Mahia’s bitter rivals – AFC Leopards. In the rugby circles, Sportpesa sponsors the popular Kenya Harlequins Rugby club and the Rugby Sevens and Fifteens National teams!
These local sponsorships tell us two things as punters. That the company has plenty of money (to pay winners) and that part of our betting monies (the profits the company makes) are spent on promoting football and rugby across the country.
International Sponsorships and partnerships
Sportpesa has multiple partnerships and sponsorships with renowned English teams including the Gunners (Arsenal FC), Everton, the Saints (Southampton FC) and the Tigers (Hull City Fc). These sponsorships have made many Kenyans so proud of the bookie and are perhaps the reasons why most Kenyans continue to be loyal to the bookie.
Sportpesa platforms – website and app
Sportpesa Sportsbook Website
Sportpesa has a good, functional website. Even if you are not particularly tech-savvy, you shouldn’t experience too many problems – the Sportpesa site is designed and inbuilt with all the modern user-friendly features. For example, the website has a simplified user interface, with everything easily accessible on the homepage. The data on the website is also encrypted meaning only you and the Sportpesa can see the information you enter.
Similar to the website, the bookie’s Android app is also pretty functional. It has everything you will find on the website and uses very little data; definitely a fun and affordable way to bet while on the go! There are several ‘Sportpesa’ apps online and Google store. Not all are genuine. Make sure you download the official one on the company’s official website Sportpesa.com to avoid loading your phone with malicious apps.
Nowadays every Kenyan wants the convenience of depositing and withdrawing money via mobile payment services such as Airtel Money and MPESA. Both of these options are available on the site as is the case with most local bookies. With these two mobile money systems, you can deposit or withdraw money from your Sportpesa account at any time. The Safaricom MPESA Paybill number is 955100, while the Airtel Mobile Paybill number is SPORTPESA!
Sportpesa has a lottery in the name of Pambazuka National Lottery! Like most national lotteries, you have to predict seven numbers in any order to win. In this case, the numbers are between 1 and 49. What’s exciting about this lottery is that its draw is held on live TV. You get to see the numbers being picked live on TV. Even though this is exciting to most of us, the sad truth is that the lottery is very difficult to win. The numbers are against you. Yes, you could be lucky but most of us bettors will never win it. It is better to focus on the sports betting side of business!
Wrapping everything up
Sportpesa is one of Kenya’s and perhaps Africa’s leading gaming platforms. The site is properly licensed (which makes it credible) and has multiple international partnerships with renowned global brands such as The Arsenal, Everton FC, and Southampton FC. Even though they only have one non-official Sportpesa promotion in the name of JP (Jackpot) bonuses, the bonus amounts are really good financial rewards for those who participate in the bookie’s jackpot promotion. There is no Sportpesa promotion code. You just sign up from here and you will be eligible for the bonus.
The bookie could obviously do with more promos. However, they wonderfully make up for the lack of promos with their exciting live-betting feature. In short, the company is irresistible as of now. Join them to experience all that you’ve been missing. And visit us frequently for updates on Sportpesa promotions and other betting promos.
