SportPesa Sportsbook Review

*This is one of the brands we used to feature on the site, however for whatever reason we no longer recommend it. We kept this old review but removed any direct links to the site and advise you to pick another brand from here.

sportpesaKenyan based sports betting company SportPesa have been established since 1999 but have only recently started to make themselves known around the wider world. Some high profile sponsorship deals with football clubs in Europe have helped to grow their customer base and there is plenty to enjoy here.

Licensed on the Isle of Man, here is a rundown of what you can look forward to.

SportPesa Bonus Review

Unfortunately, there is no welcome offer at the time of writing in June 2017. There is value in this operator but you will need to look beyond bonus hunting and stay around for the long term.

SportPesa do offer a best odds guarantee promo for all UK and Irish horse racing but the introduction of a welcome deal and some ongoing offers would certainly increase their customer base.

Markets and Odds

Things pick up for SportPesa when we look at their list of available markets which is certainly an extensive one. Main events and some niches are here in this following schedule.

Football, Horse Racing, Golf, Tennis, American Football, Aussie Rules, Badminton, Baseball, Basketball, Boxing, Chess, Cricket, Cycling, Darts, Futsal, Handball, Ice Hockey, MMA, Motor Racing, Rugby League, Rugby Union, Snooker, Pool, Speedway, Surfing, Table Tennis, Volleyball, Water Polo and Winter Sports.

That’s one of the biggest lists we’ve seen and you can also take advantage of a selection of eSports plus picks from entertainment and politics if you like. SportPesa are unlikely to appear on the odds comparison sites for some time but prices look good across the board, particularly in core sports such as football and tennis.


Funding options are fairly limited here but you can use the two main eWallet providers – Skrill and Neteller. In addition, SportPesa can also accept any of the main debit cards so we should all have at least one option even if this list could be made wider in the months to come.

All transactions should be instant and SportPesa have a dedicated link for deposits and withdrawals which lists all the minimum and maximum figures.

Customer Service

A live chat button appears at the bottom right corner of every page on the site and this is manned 24 / 7 to answer your issues in the shortest possible space of time. If you prefer to contact the sportsbook more anonymously, SportPesa list their customer support email and there is a good set of frequently asked questions.

Overall this is a comprehensive service and responses have been found to be both quick and efficient.


SportPesa are getting a lot of things right and the positives certainly outweigh any downsides for anyone looking for a new account. Firstly, there is that excellent set of betting markets which is one of the biggest we’ve seen from any provider across the crowded selection of sportsbooks. The value is there in the odds too which compare well with other operators in the majority of events.

They will need a welcome bonus if they are going to attract a certain type of punter however and it is disappointing that there are no ongoing promos either. However, if you are prepared to stick around for the longer term and like a regular bet, you should find enough value and choice in these prices and markets to make SportPesa one of your first ports of call for sports betting.
