Rule number one in sports betting is to never rely on one bookie/betting site. 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.
Since I am a professional sports bettor, I spend agonizingly long hours going through all registered betting sites in Kenya trying to find good odds on offer. I know all Kenyan bookies like the back of my hand as a result. This has allowed me to know all the offers available by our local bookies and I will show you where to get the best deals. In this post I will also recommend sites which are user friendly, those with the highest odds, easiest jackpots to attempt to win, and also those that you should avoid as much as possible.
Are you looking for a good sports betting site to use? My favorite bookies in Kenya are Betpawa and Hollywoodbets. Betpawa is very easy to use, and it has the best live betting experience and highest odds. Sign up through this link to get a free bet on Betpawa. Hollywoodbets is the only bookie in Kenya that will give you a truly international betting experience. It has countless bonuses, innumerable betting options, and an unmatched accumulator bonus. Sign up to Hollywoodbets through our link to take advantage of the latest offers.
We have also partnered with 1xbet.co.ke, the newest betting site in kenya, to give you an AMAZING offer. Register today and get a Sh.10,000 deposit bonus! You read that right, make your first deposit and 1xbet will match it with a similar amount up to SH.10,000. Deposit 10,000 and you will have access to Sh.20,000 to bet with on the site. Sign up to 1xbet through our special invite link to get access to your deposit bonus.
List of betting sites
Sportpesa is the largest sports betting site in the country and the official sponsors of Hull City football club. The site offers plenty of betting options and good odds. However, transaction costs when using mpesa are too high, although you can avoid these unnecessary costs by using airtel money. Sportpesa always has the highest jackpot, and the fastest payouts with no delays.
- KSH 50,000,000 Jackpot
- KSH 100,000,000 Mega Jackpot.
- KSH 100 Rafiki bonus.
Hollywoodbets is one of my favorite and most recommended betting site. In fact, we prefer it to Sportpesa, Betin and other betting sites, because the site offers their customers plenty of goodies in the form of sign up bonuses, loyalty bonuses and big player bonuses. This is the only Kenyan site that will give you a truly international sports betting experience. It has countless bonuses, innumerable betting options, and an unmatched accumulator bonus. Sign up to Hollywoodbets through our link to take advantage of the latest offers.
- A 30% accumulator bonus. The Accumulator BONUS is calculated on multiple bets with 2 or more selections and it increases with each event added to your betting ticket up to 30%. The more selections you make the more BONUS you get!
- Unlimited betting options.
Betin is part of the GoldBet Group one of Europe’s largest betting and gaming Operators and was formerly operating on the name and domain Gold Bet (http://goldbet.co.ke). With Betin the minimum bet stake is Sh.50. You can get bonuses for multibets.
Betin also provides in-play betting, casino, and virtual matches, although I am not a big fan of the site layout. In Live Betting, the odds change right up to the 90th minute. On a Saturday there may be as many as 10,000 different bets on offer, along with a full selection of Virtual products including football, tennis, horse and dog racing.
- Free deposits.
- Best virtual matches. The virtual sports betting section will allow you to bet 24 hours a day on tennis, football, dog and horse racing.
- A casino with online games. From Roulette to Blackjack and from Cards to Dice games
- A 50% accumulator bonus.
Betpawa is my favorite site so far. The site is run by Gaming International, and they have one of the friendliest sites to use. You can bet with as low as Sh1, plus they also offer in-play betting. My favorite part is that they highlight the most popular bets, making it easier to spot the best matches to bet on. Furthermore, the site is very light and it can load fast on most devices, even for in-play betting unlike most sites on the list. Get a FREE bet by signing up through our invite link.
- Free bet on sign up. Claim your free bet by signing up through this link.
- A 50% accumulator bonus.
- Best in-play betting experience.
Elitebet was one of the first sites to launch in Kenya. The site is a bit frustrating to use especially on mobile.
- A KES 5,000,000 Jackpot
- KES 5 minimum bet.
Mcheza is is a very easy to use betting sites with access to one of the widest selection of events in the country. I like that provide a daily update of a pdf file with all the recent matches. This makes it easy to analyze matches.
- 50% bonus on a winning multibet of more than 10 games.
- 25% bonus on a winning multibet of 7 games, 8 games, 9 games and 10 games.
- Bet Refund bonus for multibets of 7+ matches where you stand to win 50% of your stake if you lose by only one match.
Has a few good odds sometimes, but otherwise no promotions or major reason to use it instead of the competition.
I just wish betway would give us the same Kenyan site as that of betway international. If you have no idea what I am talking about have a look at the following post.
- Betway Club
This is a loyalty program that rewards customers with free bets based on your betting history, where you gain points – like bonga points – based on how much you bet and the odds of the tickets.
Every loyalty point you earn is equal to a KSh 1 Free Bet. The bigger the odds or the bigger the bet, the more points you’ll earn towards your Free Bets: (Wager) x (% of Wager) = Free Bet. For example, a bet with odds of 1.21 will be 0.25% on the Odds Tier while odds greater than 500 will be at 8%.
All loyalty points will be automatically redeemed as a Free Bet every Monday.

1xbet is the only sports betting site in Kenya with a 100% deposit bonus on your first deposit of up to Sh.10,000. This means that if you deposit Sh.10,000, the site doubles the amount to Sh.20,000. 1xbet supports MPESA and Airtel money deposits.
Lucky2U is a bit ‘old-fashioned’ although they have one of the highest selection of bets on offer (such as number of corners and bookings). You can’t deposit through Lipa na Mpesa – you have to visit their outlets – and you have to request for a withdrawal by calling one of their agents. Not worth all the trouble, since most of the other sites on the list offer instant withdrawals and deposits.
As just another betting site in Kenya, Lucky2u offers an innovative bookmaking experience incorporating into a state of the art system, offering real time odds, betting during matches and games, bets on half time scores, over/under scores, handicaps and lots more.
Eazibet has a Sh.50 Free deposit bonus for all new customers. In this case Eazibet will award you Sh.50 Free betting cash when you deposit more than sh.150 to the website on your first deposit. Read more about the first deposit bonus on Eazibet here.
Just bet has had some issues with delayed or missing payments in the past. Not the best site to use.
This is also another newly launched betting site where you can place bets on many sports including basketball, Cricket, darts, ice-hockey, and football of course. They also provide a deposit and referral bonus for users.
- Top Up Bonus. Top up over Kshs. 200 and get Kshs. 50 bet bonus.
- Referral bonus of Kshs. 50 will be given to users who refer their friends to KWIKBET by sending ACCEPT#FRIEND’S NUMBER to 29020. Those referred are required to fund their accounts within 48hrs to enable the referrer earn their bonus.
Dafabet is a privately owned online gambling company based in Makati, Philippines. Dafabet is the Asia’s No. 1 online betting and gaming site.

Now changed to Betin Kenya.
Betika has some of the best odds on offer.
