Sports betting is also extremely popular in Africa. The provider SportPesa was founded in 2014 and now not only has large market shares on the African continent, but has also put out feelers to Europe. SportPesa is particularly well-known in the UK and Italy. The provider from Kenya has sponsorships with Everton FC, Hull City, Southampton FC and Torino FC. In addition, the provider is the name sponsor of the domestic league in Kenya. We would now like to introduce SportPesa to you.
A look at the betting offer of SportPesa must be considered from two sides. British, Italian and African customers receive a different offer than users from the rest of Europe. Thus, for said countries, there is a handsome selection of around 30 categories with numerous betting options.
For other countries, the offer is limited to just ten categories. It is clear that the provider focuses on soccer. This is also underlined by several sponsor partnerships that the provider maintains. If you are looking for exotic sports, you will not find them at Sportpesa. Sports like cricket or MMA are available, but other smaller sports are not. When it comes to soccer, the five most popular leagues can be found in the menu, which allows for quick betting. In Germany, a tab “Germany Amateuer” is also offered, which shows games up to the top leagues. Nearly 30 betting options can be found in the top leagues. This offer continues in smaller leagues as well, so there is a decent amount of options even for small games.
The same applies to the area of live betting here, too, a dichotomy can be found. While the British and Co. can enjoy the full program, so the live betting sector is mainly limited to the main sports away. Therefore, it may well happen here that it is not possible to bet around the clock, but that you have to wait for live bets. The offer of soccer, tennis and basketball betting is decent.
The betting odds at SportPesa are on a surprisingly high level. Especially in the top leagues, we found many odds that were at least on the level of Tipico and sometimes significantly higher. What was striking here was that the entire odds distribution on a pairing was weighted higher. Thus, no team is favored. Higher odds are spread throughout the entire game. The odds level of the provider is also convincing in the remaining sports.
To put it straight, no bonus is currently offered for customers from Germany. Users from other countries, however, sometimes receive a bonus. The bonus offer of SportPesa is diverse and is not limited to a welcome bonus. It remains to be seen whether the provider will also grant German customers a bonus in the future.
Credit and debit cards from VISA and MasterCard are permitted as payment methods. Likewise, payment can be made with Skrill and Neteller. Likewise, a bank transfer is possible. Thus, the provider relies primarily on internationally popular and fast payment options. Deposits and withdrawals are already possible from 5 euros.
The provider SportPesa can be reached via mail and Facebook. Youtube and Twitter are also available. However, these channels are more for advertising purposes. SportPesa only has a live chat for users from the UK, Italy and Africa. Instead, users are offered an extensive FAQ section. This can answer many questions even without customer service.
We were positively surprised by the mobile option for betting at SportPesa. Like numerous other providers, the provider relies on a web version. A download is therefore not necessary. The web version convinces in its clarity and operation. Within a few seconds, all leagues can be called up. The color selection is also user-friendly. In addition, users can also access all menus and view statistics for different sports. Current live scores can also be called up. An Android version is now also available for customers from the countries mentioned above.
SportPesa is an interesting provider that has become one of the most successful companies in Kenya within four years. Partnerships with well-known clubs give the provider a great deal of respectability. Unfortunately, the offer is limited for many parts of Europe. The provider currently focuses mainly on the African continent, the UK and Italy. Therefore, it is not easy to give a rating, as the offer for these countries is much more extensive. We decide to rate the main offer, which can convince in almost all areas. Only the bonus and the payment methods could be improved. Should SportPesa also cast an eye on the domestic European market, then the provider would be a serious alternative in Germany.
