List of All Betting Sites in Kenya

  • According to Google Search trends for May 2019, betting still remains a craze among Kenyans even with the increasing calls for tighter regulation of the gaming and betting industry.

    The Gaming Bill 2019, which was published on May 28th, 2019 and seeks to further regulate the industry, has been a cause for concern among Kenyans. 

    The Bill aims to introduce hefty licensing fees for betting companies seeking to set up base in Kenya by raising the minimum amount of a bet. 

    The number one rule in sports betting, according to gamblers, is to never rely on one bookie/betting site in Kenya. 

    All bookies offer different odds for all matches and you can maximize your earnings by picking the best odds on offer.

    Another reason to try it out different sports betting sites in Kenya is that some sites have offers which include free bets and deposit bonuses that you can use to get some free betting cash.
