The sports and gaming scene is teeming with excitement as new developments tell of a return of one of the industry’s biggest players – SportPesa.
A new bookmaker, Milestones Games Ltd has acquired the rights to use the brand name – SportPesa – in Kenya.
In a press statement, robust SportPesa CEO Ronald Karauri made the confirmation, and adds:
“As market leaders, SportPesa will focus on upholding the highest standards of service and responsible gaming. We look forward to working closely with BCLB and all other stakeholders…”
Besides an aggressive corporate market imprint, SportPesa has endeared itself by driving social and community empowerment, investing in local sports leagues, teams and tournaments. The gaming firm has a symbiotic partnership with The Kenya Premier League, the domestic top tier club competition, and a key sponsor of the national teams – the Harambee Stars and the Harambee Starlets.
Other than soccer, SportPesa has made agreements and partnerships in other sports as well – rugby, boxing, motorsports, athletics and golf.
The firm enjoys a massive gaming fan base, and has indeed set precedence in the region with massive payouts.
The most famous being the KSh 221M jackpot win by Edwin Abisai, in May 2017.
