Founded a few years ago, SportPesa has become one of the Kenyan players’ most favourite online operators. In return for this appreciation, the bookmaker rewards with SportPesa bonuses, which mainly involve mega jackpots. Read on this review to find out more about the popular bookie in Kenya.

SportPesa Betting Markets
Although the sports betting operator does not offer a wide range of sports like its UK counterpart (more than 30 sports there), it can still entice Kenya players with around 10 different sports, including football, basketball, tennis, rugby union, boxing, cricket, handball, ice hockey, MMA, and volleyball.
The increasingly popular esports, as well as horse racing, are missing, though.
That aside, betting at SportPesa is quite interesting, with the primary focus being on the king of sports – football – where punters can find events and leagues from over 35 countries (over 120 markets for high-profile matches).
You can choose between top-tier competitions the likes of La Liga, Premier League, Primera Division, Serie A, Ligue 1, Champions League and Bundesliga and start betting.
However, there is also good coverage of Portugal, Spanish, and English football, as well as lots of friendlies from across the world, and lesser-known events, such as U17 European Women’s Championship.
Despite the short list of sports provided, the operator does cover dozens of football leagues, which is a great asset if you are an enthusiastic soccer bettor.
SportPesa Live Betting & Streaming
For the time being, the operator does not offer live streaming, so you won’t be able to watch your favourite game (the one you have placed a bet on) live. However, where the platform pleases and somewhat compensates for the lack of live streaming services, is with its live betting or in-play betting feature.
You can get almost instant information about how the event you have bet on is going and also wager on a large number of events that are taking place at that moment via stats and more.
Plus, you can choose how you want to view the in-play console and savour a personalised sports betting experience. And, all that, in high quality. It should be noted that the number of markets available for live betting depends on the level of each event and, of course, the sport.
SportPesa Cash Out
The cashout option is extremely valuable for players in the know, as it allows them to end their bet if things don’t go as planned and they are more likely to lose.
SportPesa seems to know how important this function is to punters and allows them to make a partial or full cashout and lock in a profit. It is available on a range of sports, including football and tennis.
SportPesa Kenya Review: Payment Options
Again, there is a distinction between Kenyan players and punters from other countries in the world concerning the funding methods available. The most used money transfer service in Kenya, M-PESA is not offered, unless you use network operator Safaricom.
Players can make deposits and withdrawals via e-wallets and credit/debit cards, though. What is great news is that transactions are super fast – deposits are instantly processed while deposit requests are cleared within 24 hours which allows for stress-free online betting endeavours.
SportPesa Kenya Review: Customer Service
To communicate with the customer support department, you can email them, call them or use the live chat function that is available all around the clock. The response times of the other available options are satisfactory while the customer assistance agents are friendly, fast, and efficient.
Plus, you can also connect with Customer Help staff members via the bookmaker’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
The mobile site is equally pleasing and easy to use as the desktop version. Also, very interactive and fast due to the fact that it does not need Flash Player to run (HTML only).
The mobile platform has been designed to respond perfectly to any screen while offering all of the sports and betting markets available at the website sibling, in a particularly user-friendly format.
At the moment of this writing, the is no dedicated app, but this could change at any given time. What is indeed an option is an .apk file that you can download on an Android-powered portable device.
SportPesa Kenya Review: Final Thoughts
If you love football, then SportPesa is your go-to operator. With plenty football markets covering nearly every league on this planet, good odds, a top live betting service, and extra features such as cashout, the bookmaker has a lot to offer the Kenyan player.
The customer service is also ready to provide solutions and answers on a 24/7 basis. SportPesa could be a game-changer if they considered adding live streaming and opening up the sports section to more sports markets.
