Times do really change and the world of betting has come closer to East Africa thanks to the many betting sites and companies that are availing their services in this region. SportPesa is the newest kid on the block and judging by the look of things, the new kid is here to stay.

Sportpesa is a product of Pevans E.A. Limited and has been licensed by the Betting Control and licensing Board of Kenya (BCLB) under the Betting, Lotteries and Gaming Act Cap 131, Laws of Kenya under License Number 650. Enough of the law gibberish and on to more interesting facts: betting and winning.

Well, though in existence for a short period of time, Sportpesa has become a favorite for many betting enthusiasts in East Africa especially because of the fact that you can deposit and withdraw your money through mobile money transfers. The company has partnered with major mobile companies such as Safaricom, Airtel and Orange for better more personalized services. Some of their other partners include banks such as Standard Chartered and Equity bank. If you are still struggling with the question is Sportpesa a scam? The partners on board should at least give you some positivity about the betting site.

User Interface

According to my experience, the interface is user-friendly especially because everything is large and clearly displayed for easy betting. You do not have to find small details around the website and betting is now easy and with less chances of moaning mistakes. The home page displays everything you need such as highlights, the day’s matched, upcoming events, results and the important terms and conditions. You will also get a large banner which will take you to the jackpot page.

How To Deposit Money On SportPesa

After a simple registration process that creates your account you can now deposit your money. Depositing has been made easy by the money transfer options especially because most people would prefer depositing cash from just about anywhere using their phones. You have three options from the 3 major carriers, Mpesa, Airtel Money and Orange money. Depositing is as easy as following a few steps and your money will immediately reflect on your Sportpesa account.

How To Bet On Sportpesa

There are not many options on Sportpesa since the betting site only features football matches from all over the world including major leagues, international competitions and international friendly matches. The betting process is a straightforward one where you only need to choose the odds which include winning team one (1), a draw (X) or winning team two (2) with the least amount being an impressive 100 shillings. There are other 12 options which make the betting experience all interesting. The site offers the odds for the matches according to their statistic base and it is up to you to select your wining odd (a little research will help). You can also use the mobile betting option which to me looks tiring but is a great idea for people without access to computers or smartphones. Every time you bet or win, you get a text on your phone to congratulate you, if you don’t, then you better start counting you losses

How To Withdraw Money From Sportpesa

After you have had a lucky day and won your bets, you can withdraw your winning through the same method you used to deposit your cash. This is what makes Sportpesa one of the best betting sites in East Africa. The money will reflect on your phone almost as soon as you click the withdraw button. Of course there is a small transaction charge that you have to pay but this is kind of normal for all mobile transactions outside the betting world.

How To Win The Sportpesa Jackpot

The Sportpesa jackpot starts from 5 million shillings and can go up as long as no one wins it. To get a chance to win the jackpot, you will be required to predict 13 matches correctly. These are matches that are played on weekends and therefore you will have the whole week to fantasize whether you will use your millions to buy the latest Range Rover Sport or just a Mustang Muscle car to meet your need for speed. There are also chances of winning some bonuses for people who come close to winning the jackpot. You get cash bonuses for 10, 11, and 12 correct predictions out of the 13 jackpot matches. I think they need other smaller jackpots.

Bonuses On SportPesa

You get a 100 shilling bonus for referring your friend who should deposit money and bet before you can enjoy your bonus. It would be nice if they had a signup bonus, this would attract many gamers.


Sportpesa might be a new kid on the block but has surely taken over the betting industry. The ease with which people can bet and get their winning prizes is just impressive. You do not have to wait for their results, place your bet and then watch your match on any of the digital set boxes available. You can take a chance at the jackpot and I hope no one else wins because I am on it!!!
