SportPesa is a big giant in the African sport betting industry. The company at first started operating in Kenya – in 2014 year – where it has turned into the top number 1 gambling website. Currently, the betting house’s had main office is placed exactly in Kenya. Meanwhile, it is also the general sponsor for the local football premium league.
This page accepts bets from punters located in many European countries, but mostly from those based in England, where by the way, the company is a sponsor for the Everton’s team equipment. Besides, SportPesa is also an official partner to the following football teams – Arsenal, Southampton and Hull City.
This gambling house’s annual income is estimated at about one billion of USD which is nearly 2.3 trillion of Tsh. This income turns SportPesa into the biggest bookmaker that is located in Africa.
In Tanzania, SportPesa released its betting website in 2017 year, but it has made it to fast turn into one of the leading gambling pages. Moreover – this betting website even succeeded in leaving many old reputable names in the sphere behind. The betting operator claims and shows some interest to our country for which we find a proof in the fact that it is now the sponsor to the two biggest local football teams – Simba Sports Club and Young Africans Tanzania. Moreover – the betting house even considers moving its international main office here in our country. Currently, the gambling company has only one regional office and it is placed in Dar es Salaam.
SportPesa Tanzania App – Mobile betting
If we have to name SportPesa’s strongest point, we would point out its modern and constantly updating software in both: the desktop and the mobile website versions.
The African bookie will please you with a fantastic mobile betting experience which if you use an Android device is available not only via the mobile browsers, but also via the company’s official application which runs on all Android devices with version 4.1.1 or newer. This operating system version, by the way, was released in summer 2012 year, so all smartphones and tablets made since this time till now ill faultlessly accept the bookmaker’s app.
The official application is determined by the company as the more reliable device, plus it saves you more mobile data when placing bets, so it is in your interest to accept the bookie’s piece of advice and to choose the application rather than the mobile website version.
You can place bets on the entire range of sport markets and events via the app, as well as to play the jackpot game. Moreover – everything useful and interesting from the desktop page is also available in the application.

In addition to these, in the App section of the desktop version you will find a QR code via which you can also start the downloading process.

SportPesa Football and Sport bets
Although like most of the rest bookies SportPesa doesn’t offer any bets for the local Tanzanian championship (Ligi kuu Bara), here you will be able to place bets on all the other interesting leagues you can think about, especially if you are European football fan. From the club tournaments like Championship League and Liga Europa to all the national championships, including the championship in the Faroese Islands, as well as the amateur leagues in Turkey – this bookie’s traders don’t miss even a single European match.
The rage of market types is quite more modest in comparison to the other football betting websites. The markets in this website are grouped in the following categories: general (winner, draw and double chance), markets for scores, markets for the first half time and other markets, which include several lines form the Asian and the European handicap. We can definitely say, though, that we miss some other popular markers like those for the corners or the goal scorers. The good news is that the betting operator doesn’t classify the markets in small or big, which is why you will receive this set of markets for all matches – big ones like the one between Real Madrid and Barcelona and smaller markets like any of the Segunda B division.
The markets in SportPesa are few, but they are at least truly high quality. Moreover – they come with comparatively high odds. They are with profit margin that is nearly 8-9%. As to the odds we have odds for small and big matches, because for the elite events the profit margin is nearly 6%, while for the events from the lowest divisions the profit margin is increased up to more than 10%.
If you are interested in betting on other sport types, you can browser the 4-digit number of markets for other disciplines, including basketball, cricket, boxing, wrestling, tennis, handball, volleyball and rugby.
SportPesa’s live section is called Live Games and in this section the betting company once again counts on the small number of matches and markets, but with an extremely big amount of information about each of them. The details you are going to receive about each single match include the following facts: starting teams, indexes for both of the teams in almost 20 different statistic criteria (even for the touches or the attempts), as well as live tracker for each of the matches. In the page for every single match from the live betting program there’s a button called Updates. When you click on it you can follow the progress of the rest of the events, too. This whole information offered in the live betting section is provided by one Kenyan company, but we can confidently say that it helps us quite more than the information offered even from the biggest bookies does.
SportPesa Jackpot Rules
These are the rules for the weekly jackpot game we find in SportPesa website: you have to select a host win, draw or a win for the guest in 13 different football matches. Then, you need to invest 2 000 Tsh in your prediction and to wait what eventually will happen in order to understand whether you win the jackpot amount of up to several millions of Tsh (for instance, this week’s first prize for the game exceeds 360 million of Tsh).
Unfortunately, one of this bookie’s biggest weak points is the lack of any bonus system, excluding the lonely bonus that is called Rafiki Bonus. The promotion offers you 2 000 Tsh every time you invite any friends of yours to register in the website and he or she really does it.
The registration button expects you in the central side of the app / mobile website version and will eventually require from you to fill in your telephone number and a password for your account. Note that your password should contain at least one capital letter and at least one number.
To confirm the validity of your mobile phone number, the betting company will send to the number you provide during the registration a registration code. By entering this code you actually complete your registration.
After the registration is done, you need to make a deposit of at least 2 000 Tsh or more via Vodacome, Halopesa, Airtel Money or Tigo Pesa. Now, you can actually start placing bets. SportPesa’s Paybill number is 150888. If you find any difficulties while making a deposit, the help centre on the website there are some detailed guides you can read.
