Sports Betting in Kenya has grown at such a rapid pace with the space continually attracting many players. SportPesa is the leader in the space, a fete attributed to the popular jackpots that award winners millions of shillings for correctly predicting the outcome of a select number of matches.

Despite the growth of betting, the process of making payments through these betting platforms is often tasky. After winning, users often receive a notification but again have to undertake another process to withdraw their winnings. SportPesa has now entered into a deal with Airtel that will allow users to place bets free using Airtel Money.

Under the partnership, a SportPesa user will make a deposit to their SportPesa account free of charge and  withdrawal free of charge when moving their bet winnings from their Sportpesa betting account to their Airtel Money wallet.  To place a bet, one will be required to top up their betting wallet through Airtel Money to the SportPesa Paybill name ‘SPORTPESA’ and on reference to write the word ‘FOOTBALL’.
