Sportpesa is back! Betting firms receive permits

After an uncertain month of operations, several betting companies have finally received their permits for the 2022/2023 trading period, among them giant sports investors such as SportPesa.

The move which comes few weeks before the Kenya Premier League new football season kicks off on September 10 is a sigh of relief for various clubs and sports entities that have struggled to get partners to fund their teams. The permits for all betting firms are renewed annually and lapse every June 30th.

Betting companies are some of the largest investors in sports. SportPesa which has been operating using a court order since resuming business in November 2020 will now operate under Betting Control and Licensing number 0000448.

Other firms that have so far received their licenses include Betika, Odibets, Sportybet, Shabiki and Betsafe among others. Last month, some of these companies had to temporarily shut down their paybills as they sought clearance from BCLB as well as other state agencies; as part of the pre-licensing conditions.

Some of the conditions included a clearance from the Kenya Revenue Authority, Financial Reporting Centre and a Ksh250,000 bank guarantee among others.

“Our paybill numbers are currently unavailable affecting deposits and withdrawals and we are working with the relevant government agencies to have them restored so that you continue to enjoy the best gaming experience,” Betsafe told its customers on July 7, a week after the deadline of re-licensing had passed.

Betting firms are required to renew their licenses annually, a move that has always been mired in long standing push and pull over the conditions for licensing.

As the betting firms which are large investors in sports sought licenses, some football clubs were adversely affected when sponsorships were prematurely ended.

AFC Leopards and Gor Mahia who were sponsored by Betsafe at the start of the 2021/2022 KPL season had to look for new sponsors mid-season. The two popular clubs are now sponsored by Betika and BetArique respectively.

Kayole residents in upbeat mood as Betika kicks off facelifting project for Kayole Calvary Field

Betika, the leading betting firm held a ground-breaking ceremony on Thursday 23rd September 2021 celebrating the start of the rehabilitation of the Kayole Calvary field at Kayole/Komarocks area.

The event was witnessed by representatives from the Ministry of Sports Arts & Culture, Embakasi CDF officials, Kayole residents, sports men and women.

Speaking at the ground-breaking ceremony, Jackie Tonui, the firm’s Marketing Manager said:

“As part of our Betika Na Community initiatives, we have gotten into an agreement with the Embakasi Central Constituency Development Fund (CDF)office to upgrade the community football pitch in Kayole.”

“This is our first community pitch, and we plan to spend over 100M in the rehabilitation of such community pitches across the country to improve their conditions to advance the training standards of grassroot sports”.

“Currently, grassroot teams face the challenge of postponing matches or playing in waterlogged pitches during rainy season. In addition, most pitches are hazardous and are a cause of injuries to players due to their rocky and uneven conditions.”

“Betika wants to change the game and level the playing fields across the country to give our players a reason to wake up and grow their talent.” adds Mrs. Jackie Tonui

Mr. Elias Mate, Fund Manager CDF Embakasi graced the event. He says:

“We are happy to be the first beneficiaries of the Betika Na Community field rehabilitation Initiative. From what I have seen and heard, Betika is all about changing the lives of Kenyans by giving solutions that provide long term impactful initiatives to the communities around us.”

“Thank you for touching the lives of people of Kayole, we are grateful that the youth here will start playing in a level ground”. He adds.

With an expected completion date of December 2021, the Kayole Calvary field will see over 300 junior teams and over 20 senior teams grow their talent.

The ‘Betika Na Community Initiative’ has now grown into a massive movement with huge following across the country and the firm promised to rehabilitate pitches to raise the bar and urges more needy communities to reach out to them with their needs.

Belgium and Portugal clash on Sunday reveals Lukaku and Ronaldo’s rivalrly for The Golden Boot Award

Well, Belgium meets Portugal in an epic clash this Sunday, at Estadio La Cartuja, in Sevilla – Spain.

Its another feature in the Euro 2020, but it brings to fore a simmering Serie A rivarly between Lukaku and Christiano Ronaldo.

Belgium boss, Roberto Martinez (file image)

The two most iconic soccer players, globally, are gunning for the Golden Boot Award.

Lukaku seeks to catch up, with CR7 ahead with a two-goal lead.

Belgium has won all three of their group matches, only seeming to struggle in one half of their Denmark meet.

Portugal sneaked into the second round after a difficult 2-2 draw with France. The Les Bleus managed third position in Group F, after a Germany-Hungary 2-2 draw with Hungary.

Team forms for both teams are neither here, nor there – each boasts an impressive pool of talented players for replacements in case of injuries or suspensions.

Portugal head coach Fernando Santos (file image)

Portugal is hardest hard, with Nelson Semedo getting an injury against France, Joao Cancelo out of the tournament due to Covid 19, Ricardo not fit enough.

Danilo, too, took a hard face blow against France, may be an out. This means possible starts for other players, say Diogo Dalot.

Belgium’s formation 3-4-2-1 preference seems pretty solid against Portugal’s 4-3-3 formation.

They are lucky, no major injury hiccup causing an ovehaul of the starting XI.

Betika.com has consistently availed attractive odds for the Euro 2020.

Belgium’s Win posts odds at 2.45, Portugal’s Win at 3.05 and a tentative draw at 3.15

Other options, in a statistics perusal set-up:

Belgium have won their last 13 matches, and scored atleast 2 goals – Over 1.5 odds at

Portugal are undefeated in 23 of their last 25 matches in the Euros’.

There have been over 2.5 goals scored in 8 of Portugal’s last 9 games – Over 2.5 odds at 2.16

The Both To Score (GG) is a possible in this clash.

Wales’ great run in Group A under serious threat as they face favourites Denmark in Saturday’s clash

Wales have exceeded expectations and proved pundits wrong by finishing second in Group A behind Italy to secure their place in the knock-out stage for the second successive European Championships.

A 4-1 win over Russia in their final group game saw Denmark move from last place to second and book a round of 16 meeting with Wales on Saturday.

This is the first meeting between the two nations since 2018 when Denmark won home and away in the UEFA Nations League.

Both nations will head into this match with real optimism but Denmark will be full of confidence after serving a total drubbing to Russia.

Wales favor the 4-5-1 formation, against Denmark’s 3-4-2-1 and both teams enjoy a solid starting XI – though for Wales, Ethan Ampadu is suspended after a straight red card in defeat to Italy on Sunday.

Danish centre-back Simon Kjaer is expected to shake off a knock to start against Wales.

Betika.com have placed impressive odds for this game, with head to head results at 5.20 for Wales Win, 1.88 for Denmark Win and a possible 3.40 for a Draw.

Looking at statistics, a Wales’ upset is a little far-fetched, though, considering that there have been under 2.5 goals scored in Wales’s last 7 games (European Championship).

Other options on Betika.com still stands, though

Both To Score (GG), HT-FT Wins for Denmark and so on.

Other than that, Betika offers the Bingwa Bonus Boost that instantly doubles, or triples winnings – based on the bets placed.

A 1k win, for instance, may get a Bingwa Bonus Boost that gifts a player with almost double in winnings.

England’s onslaught against Czech Republic is steeped in history: Will they triumph?

For England’s game against Czech Republic, there’s a little fun fact you need to know:

England has never won the Euro Championship, ever since it started in 1960.

In fact, they’ve never made to the finals.

It’s an uncomfortable detail, as it is that the British “invented” football, defined it’s basic laws, and imported the game throughout the world.

None of this means that England hasn’t been a solid side on the world stage.

They’re currently ranked #4 in the world, and while that might be a bit of an overestimation, it’s still indicative of their quality as a side.

Against Czech, England comes into the arena on a 4-2-3-1 formation, that stars Kane up front, flanked on the rear by Rashford, Greanish and Mount.

Then, interestingly, Czech also brings a similar 4-2-3-1 formation. Talismanic striker Schick is the gunner upfront, and Masopust, Darida and Jankto are set to keep his lines busy.

Ignoring the possiblity of an upset, England is expected to give Czech an hiding.

England has kept a clean sheet in the last 5 European Championship matches.

They have also wracked up a record Undefeated Run in 34 of their last 36 matches.

Betika.com offers big odds in the head to head set up with an England Win at 1.64, a Draw at 3.40 and a Czech Republic win at 7.00.

However, other options are available. For instance:

Czech Republic has scored Over 2.5 goals in their last 3 matches against England in all competitions.

All Czech Republic’s games in the European Championships have consistently Scored Under 2.5 goals!

The Clash of the Titans is Nigh: Portugal vs Germany on Saturday Night

The Portugal-Germany meet is probably the biggest clash in Euro 2020.

Both teams are well-seasoned and chokeful with talented players fresh from title wins in their other leagues.

It’s hailed to be a pacifier game, as both teams staggered in their opener games.

Though Portugal hammered Hungary 3-0, they managed the first goal late in the 84th minute – they grabbed that win by a whisker.

Germany lost their first opener match in the European Championship to France. They are in a foul mood – which kind of explains their 3-4-3 formation approach to this game.

Everything is a block – from defence, mid to the strikers – its a well-oiled German machine.

Statistics are gripping, too, for both opponents.

Portugal is undefeated in 22 of their last 23 matches in the European Championships.

Germany have won their last 4 matches against Portugal – in all competions. That’s an unpleasant box Portugal are keen to untick in the Saturday clash.

A win for either side is a high probability.

There have been over 2.5 goals scored in 6 of the last 7 Portugal games – and Portugal have scored at least 2 goals in each of these matches.

This covers the European Championships.

Gamers on Betika.com opting to place a bet on this game will be making a wise choice if they stake on Over 2.5, Over 1.5, Both To Score (GG) and so on.

Both have very impressive odds.

Players like Christiano Ronaldo, Andre Silva, Diogo Jota and Joshua Kimmich are head to head to define the game as The Man of the Match – and that translates to a busy scoreline.

The Azzuri seeks passage to the Euro 2020 Knock-Out Stages as they face Switzerland in a difficult match

This Wednesday, either of two things can happen on the EURO 2020 game pitting Italy against their rivals, Switzerland at Stadio Olimpico.

Its either Italy pulls a win that cements their perch on top of Group A ranking – or the greatest upset is conjured up by the Swiss team.

The Azzuri will be apt to push it as a win against Switzerland effectively gifts them a passage to the knock out stages.

Switzerland suffered an hitch in their opener game against Wales that ended in a draw.

That draw ended a 6-game winning streak, and has the team with just a point. Its a game they really need to win.

Coach Roberto Mancini leans towards a 4-3-3 formation for Italy, but has to contend with some injuries to effect changes to the opener game team.

Alessandro Florenzi is unlikely to recover in time to face Switzerland. Napoli’s Giovani Di Lorenzo is expected to deputise at right-back.

For the Swiss, Coach Vladimir Petkovic trust lies with Breel Embolo who got the nudge up front against Wales – a wise decision as he not only scored but also picked up the WhoScored Man of the Match Award.

Breel is expected to find the right chemistry with fellow striker Seferovic, in their yet-to-be-tested right, 3-4-1-2 match formation.

Gamers on Betika.com have a variety of odds to consider for their stake in the game.

A win for Italy attracts odds at 1.68, and a win for Switzerland odds are at 5.80.

It’s not an easy game at first glance, and pundits largely agree to a goal less draw, whose odds are at 3.90.

Betika.com has endless staking options, other than a win-loss prediction.

As Turkey clashes with Italy in the Euro 2020 opening match, who’s got the better guns?

Friday Night marks the end of a long wait for the Euro 2020 tournament.

The opener match features teams from Group A – Turkey and Italy. Though the Italians are the clear group favourites, it’s certainly not a walk in the park.

Turkey, Wales and Switzerland are seeking to disrupt the status quo to claim the top position.

In every tournament, the opener game is always a difficult affair, and with both Italy and Turkey flouting an excellent form, it’s not far fetched to expect a draw.

A barren draw is feasible, especially in the first half – or, it’s also possible for both teams to score.

The Turkish and Italian teams have both scored in each of their last four encounters.

For Turkey, they have found the back of the net in 3 of their last 6 international matches. Italy has an impressive record of scoring goals in their last 9 outings.

All these point to a very tight encounter in the Friday clash.

Turkey and Italy’s last 2 meetings have both ended in draws. It’s forgivable to assume the two teams will cancel each other out.

Turkey comes into the Euro, with their favourite 4-5-1 lineup. It’s a very optimistic set up with players like Burak Yilmaz and Zeki Celik fresh off league-winning campaigns with Lille and plenty of ingenious talent and speed in the Serie A duo of Hakan Calhanoglu and Merih Demiral.

Italy seeks to counter that under their talismanic manager Roberto Mancini, who shows preference for a fuller midfield and striker setup as a single unit with the 4-3-3 lineup.

Upfront, Italy presents the lethal striking trio of Insigne, Immobile and Berardi whose chemistry will be put to the test.

For the Euro 2020 opening clash Turkey Vs. Italy, gaming firm Betika presents gamers with exciting odds.

The winning odds for Turkey runs at 8.00, a draw attracts 3.92 and an Italy winning odds are at 1.53.

NB: Odds are subject to change, but at Betika they’ll always be very competitive.

The nail-biting tension and emotional rollercoaster riding on the Champion’s League Final on Saturday Night!

It’ll be such a task to leave the house this Saturday.

This is, traditionally, the official family’s bonding day. When the kids were little, it’d be called ‘Daddy’s Day’ – but they suddenly grow up, make friends and have things to do.

But this is ain’t just the average Saturday – the UEFA Champion’s final featuring perennial foes Chelsea and Manchester City – is going down.

You cannot miss that. Not if Armageddon happens.

“Hey, babe, I’m meeting the boys tonight at Infinity Lounge, to catch the finals”.

“What finals?” She’ll ask.

“The UEFA Champion’s League finals.”

You’ll say, offhandedly stirring your cup of chocolate.

The breakfast table is laden with pastry treats.

Reminds you of Christmas in the village at Aunt Martha’s. They have that homely smell.

The household has a Saturday code. She makes breakfast, you make dinner. She’s never broken that code. She wakes up at dawn to make pancakes and perch a red strawberry on each.

While you often break the code, not once has she failed the team. You, on the other hand, is a perennial outlaw.

Hey, but the Finals don’t happen every Saturday.

“Mike will be there, and I want us to get his cabin this August.”

Mike is a college friend, whose family has a string of cabins at the coast. Over the years, he has offered to lease it to you for a week, at ‘for-old-time’s-sake’ rates. You are yet to take up the offer.

“Mike hates football. He follows the Grand Prix”.

She says, layering a pancake with cheese.

“Oh, he fell for Arsenal. He became a fan.”

“Ok, then. Let me come, I want to laugh at him when they lose”. She doesn’t even look at you.

“No need. Arsenal won’t be playing. He’ll just be hanging out. Plus, it’s always so loud at Infinity.”

The unsaid rule with the gang is to not bring the spouse. Anything, but that.

Who needs a spouse asking where the money for the umpteenth round is coming from?

The pancakes are heavenly, no doubt. Plus, the strawberry.

“I just want to make sure we can use his cabin in August. I’ll cook dinner tomorrow. Ama Monday”

You stutter, with a mouthful of strawberry pancake.

She looks up. Monday, on the menu plastered on the kitchen wall reads ‘Matoke and Greens’. She never likes Matoke and greens.

Baba Jnr, you’ll cook chapati on Monday evening? Promise…”

“I thought we do Matoke on Mondays? But, it’s alright – I’ll get off work early”.

Well, things will thaw out, somehow. You know you’ll not get off work early. Mondays are always a stroll down the narrow path.

The boss is always in an ugly mood. Lots of people get laid off on Mondays.

The thing with Mike, though, is legit. You have a plan to reel in his pledge for brotherly rates to use his beach cabin for a week. You have a plan to treat your family to a soft life in August.

With the green light to watch the Finals with the boys, you ignore the pancakes (and the strawberry) and pick your phone.

You log into Betika.com.

There’s a long bet slip, a week old. You made a tentative pick for ten games in the UEFA play offs, from the semi finals and an alley of other games in between.

They are all ticked, green. Perfect picks.

The only remaining game is the UEFA Champions League final.

As it is, the winnings from the nine games already guarantees the family a week’s worth of fun on the beach. How will the finals play out?

It’s a dilemma.

Have you made the right choice for the finals?

Will you win the ticket, or lose the last, vital game?

Betika now offers a Cash Out option.

The Cash Out feature allows you to take an early payout on your bets before they are settled.

This means that you can get your money back before the event is over and your bet is ultimately resulted.

You’ll either make a profit or get a portion of your initial bet back, depending on how your selection is doing at the time of your taking up the Cash Out.

In a multi bet of, say, 10 teams, you are free to Cash Out before the tenth game is played…..

You have secured your bet, there’s a way out without risking the outcome of the Finals!

In a flash, Cash Out allows one to:

  1. Pay out a portion of a bet before it is settled.
  2. Reduce your risk and collect some winnings if you’re concerned about the remaining time in an event, or your selections in your Multi Bet not going your way.
  3. Cancel your bet before kick-off and receive a portion of your bet back if you’ve changed your mind.

The new tax proposal will push away gaming companies from Kenya, if its implemented

The Ministry of Finance is seeking to reintroduce excise duty on betting at a rate of 20 percent of the amount staked.

This means total taxes would exceed 86.5 percent, which could again bring closure of some betting firms due to the unfavorable working environment.


In turn, Kenya would be left without great income and thousands of people that work in this industry would lose their jobs.

Here is a list of all the taxes that betting companies would have to pay:

  • 20 percent Excise Tax on betting stake
  • 1.5% Digital service tax on betting tax
  • 15 percent Betting Tax
  • Tax on winnings 20 percent
  • Income tax 30 percent

Additionally, the return on investment in Kenya through the payment of profits/repayment of loans would be subject to additional taxation in Kenya, which would lead to the situation that due to the applied tax policy, doing business in Kenya would not be commercially viable.


Reintroducing excise duty on betting, total taxes would exceed 86,5 percent. The negative effects of stringent measures could again bring closure of some betting firms

Foreign companies describe the Kenyan market as an over-taxed and unfair operating environment.

The companies in the industry are already paying high fees, and additional taxes are being proposed, which do not exist in Europe or America.

In England, the tax on the difference is 20 percent, and there is no tax on winnings or stake, Kenya would be one of the few countries in the world to adopt this model of taxing the gambling industry.

Excise duty on betting was introduced in 2019 but was removed in July last year.


One of the reasons behind removing the tax was that the high level of taxation had led to punters placing bets on foreign platforms that were not subject to tax and thereby denying the government revenue.

Parliament scrapped the excise tax saying that it is meant to reverse the negative effects of stringent measures that included the closure of some well-known betting firms.

That closure led to job losses for hundreds of Kenyans and a revenue gap to the taxman who had annually collected billions of shillings in taxes from the betting industry.

Gaming companies are big sponsors of Kenyan sports and generally have a great impact on the community.

They have especially stood out with donations during the coronavirus pandemic.

The night Betika’s Cash Out would have saved me thousands

I remember that fateful final: Liverpool met Real Madrid for the UEFA Champions League back in 2018. The match went down at the NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium in Kyiv, Ukraine on 26 May 2018 and it was the first time I ever bet on my favorite team and watched as my heart was broken.

I was just twenty-three years old and it was my first time watching the game at a now-defunct club at a popular mall in Karen. Anyway, the scene was set, it was going to be a magical night, and my team’s talismanic player, Mo Salah was on fire.

The game kicked off and we were the more aggressive of the two teams. I was so sure I was going to be the king of the night. My Bet was going to earn me money, my team was going too be the kings of Europe and I had my friends with me watching the greatness that is my team.

Then the unthinkable happened. Sergio Ramos. Sergio “The Cheater” Ramos decided that the only way for them to beat us would be for him to completely destroy Mo Salah. Niliangalia bet ikichomeka from there going forward. Liverpool was psychologically defeated.

But you do not have to suffer as I did anymore. Betika has come through with a ground-breaking new feature that will help you save your money incase you ever find yourself in a situation like mine.

The Cash Out feature allows you to take an early payout on your bets before they are settled, meaning you are able to get money back before the event is over and your bet is ultimately resulted.

The amount you will be offered will reflect in your “My Bets” tab and will be based on the actual odds at the time you chose to look for a Cash Out offer. The amount on offer will never be more than the total potential win of the bet slip.

Cash Out allows you to:
· Pay out a portion of a bet before it is settled
· Reduce your risk and collect some winnings if you’re concerned about the remaining time in an
event, or your selections in your Multi Bet not going your way
· Cancel your bet before kick-off and receive a portion of your bet back if you’ve changed your

 Betika’s 15 Million Midweek Jackpot Lady winner!!!

Agnes Kinya, a 28-yr old unemployed teacher by profession, is the latest Shs15 Million Midweek Jackpot winner thanks to Betika. Agnes, who operates a roadside chips kiosk, correctly predicted 15 games with Ksh15 to take home Betika’s Ksh15 Million Midweek Jackpot.

She is the first woman to win Betika’s Midweek Jackpot and could not hide her joy at being the latest millionaire in the country. Agnes started betting in 2016 with no significant wins, which led her to join and try her luck on the Betika platform, she registered a few periodic small wins that motivated her to continue placing bets with the sports betting firm, and tried the different products and market options provided by the betting platform.

“On 21st February, while in Makindu, I picked my 15-game selection and for some reason, I had a particularly good feeling about this bet. I even called my husband and told him to expect some good news! In the evening, I watched a few games at home and dosed off but woke up around 12:38am and when I checked my phone, I saw that I had correctly predicted all 15 games! I quickly told my husband about the news and he thought I was just joking!! When he saw my bet slip, he was very happy and excited! I could barely sleep the rest of the night’, said Agnes.

“From January, I have been placing bets every week, spending up to Ksh100 every weekend and even though I registered some wins, I never won a huge amount. I did not give up because I love analyzing games and betting,” she remarked.

As for her future plans, Agnes plans to build residential flats with her prize money to earn her and her family sustainable income.

Speaking during the handing over of the cheque, Betika’s Business Head, John Mbatiah expressed his delight at Agnes’ win.

We also encourage all our customers to engage in responsible gaming as they continue betting on the sports that they love’’.

Breaking News – List of Betting Companies with Renewed Licenses in Kenya!

The spotlight on betting companies is not dimming just yet. This is due to a drawn out dispute with the Kenyan Government on the revision of taxes due and owed. As such the government is yet to renew business licenses on most betting companies.

However, a lucky pack of 7 firms have managed to have their business licenses renewed. This is the list of companies that have secured the elusive green light to operate:

  • BetLion
  • MCheza
  • Kwikbet
  • OdiBets
  • Gamemania
  • Betpalace
  • Betika

The Kenya Government has zeroed in on the industry with reports of most firms failing to prove that they were tax compliant as required by the Betting Control and Licensing Board (BCLB). Subsequently, a multi-agency team was constituted to probe the betting and gaming companies.

The most damning of the findings of the Board during the vetting is that the companies made a cumulative amount of Ksh.204 billion last year, but paid a partly Ksh. 4 billion in taxes. The crackdown on the firms also brings a threat to their senior non-Kenyan managers – who risks possible deportation.
