Open an Account | 1XBet Site Mirror Kenya has an annual economic growth of 5%, but only a very small proportion of the population uses the internet for betting. The wealth of a few is paid for by the poverty of many, with approximately 50% of Kenya's population living below the poverty line, which is why online betting in this country has been slow to boom as is happening in other parts of the world. Football is not widely played, but Kenyan athletes are re-knowned and celebrated the world over in athletics.
Beyond the classic betting on the partial or final result of matches, most of the bookmakers which are popular with Tusker, Sofapaka and Ulinzi Stars fans, to name just a few of the major teams preferred in Kenya, also offer bets on the team to score the first goal or on the total number of match goals. The most competitive bookmakers offer live betting for the Kenyan Premier League matches so that users can follow the event live on their PCs. At the moment only 1XBet offers this service, but other bookmakers such as Betin and Pinnacle offer similar services. The live betting format is both exciting and adrenaline-charged, and is supported by three very useful resources: statistics, live scores and live streaming that allows you to see what is happening in real time.
As mentioned, Bet365 is the bookmaker that dominates sports betting amongst Kenyan fans. Lately however, bookmakers traditionally of a more European character such as 10Bet, Planetwin365 and William Hill are also experiencing considerable success in Kenya. The relative ease of registration and the many options for transferring money into a betting account have added to the success of sports betting in Kenya.
The main preferred methods for money transactions in Kenya are typically credit cards and bank transfers, but recently many Kenyan have begun to show a preference for alternative methods such as Skrill, Neteller or EcoPayz.
