Betway Kenya is the first African version of the English bookmaker Betway. It was established back in 2015 year and it’s easy to say that as the version with the richest background history, it is also one of the best one and quite well-advanced among all of the African divisions this bookie has released. Although, we can also tell that this Kenyan version is left behind by the international version in many aspects so Betway has a lot more to do in future.
The sport program Betway Kenya offers includes nearly 20 sport disciplines which at first view might not be the richest sport program ever, but once we view the program in details we would agree that there is no other sport discipline we would miss so much on the platform just because this betting company works with almost all of the most popular sport types for gambling.
The sport disciplines available in Betway Kenya are the following:
- Ice hockey
- Formula 1
- American soccer
- Formula 1
- Automobile rallies
Our personal impressions as to the sport betting in this gambling system is that the number of the events offered in Betway’s program for the Kenyan market isn’t smaller than the number of the rest of the leading world bookies these days. In short, this leads to the conclusion that you can bet on matches with thousands of different teams from around the glove and most of them are even teams you might have never even heard about. Ok, maybe, the range of the bet types is a bit smaller than those in some other betting houses, but note that in Betway Kenya you can place various interesting and exotic bet types like such for goal scorers, corners, cards and etc.
Please, be aware that in the Kenyan version of this betting operator we have at our disposal a whole section called Outrights bets. Here is where you are going to be able to place bets on the champions in many different championships, but unfortunately, the bookie doesn’t offer any bets for the goal scorers in a championship / league or other long-term bets such as “To end in top 4”, “To fall out of the division” and etc.
On the other side, in Kenya, the bookmaker can brag about a large contribute to the advance and progress of the entire sport world in the country due to the company’s numerous projects such as Betway Talent Search, as well as due to its sponsorship for Kenyan Premier League and for many of our elite football teams like Mathare United and AFC Leopards, for instance. On a world scale, the gambling operator is mostly recognized for its presence in the English Premium league thanks to its partnership with the London-based football team West Ham which is one of the most steady English teams in the history and it since its establishment till these days it has never reached a lower than the second division on the island.
It is a curious fact that Betway’s brand representative is the ex-leader of our national team and the ex-player of the French team Nant – Oxer and Aycho Dennis Oliech who’s also a youth payer from one of the company’s sponsored teams Mathare United.
The special bets are also not available in this betting operator. Thus, while other betting pages let you bet on the next fired manager in a certain league, the next team a certain player will become a part of and even similar bets, but outside of the sport theme, like the next president in USA, such opportunities for betting activity are simply not included in program here.
Here is one strong point this European bookie can brag about and leave the competition behind: on every single page per certain event different statistics are offered, including the average number of scorers per team, the average number of scores in live events, the last 5 live matches, the last 5 matches in a certain championship for both of the teams and etc.
Also, when a single event starts, you cannot only place a live bet on it, but also to see topic and hot statistics for everything that is happening on the field right now – from standard data like % of ball possession per team through general information like all attempts that have been made in any gate or number of points per team / player to more original data like total number of misses. Take a look at our article called Betway Kenya Live Betting – Bet range and functions in order to get to know more about this betting company’s live category.
Speaking of which, this bookie represents one of the biggest world brands on our market and such a fact provides big confidence and trustworthiness to those customers who do wish to bet in a reputable and reliable platform.
