One of the bookies from the old guard of online gambling. Since 2008, their online presence has included betting. They offer a lot of good things for Kenyan customers, including a good selection of sports and promotions. They also provide customers with a lot of payment options in a lot of currencies (not shilling though).


Payment methods for Kenyan customers

The main problem regarding deposits and withdrawals are Kenyan banking systems. If you want to make a deposit via bank, it has to be through an agent face to face. This means that other methods of payment, like M-Pesa or Airtel. Both of those methods are easy and include the use of a mobile phone.

Payments via M-Pesa

M-Pesa is operated by Vodafone and its purpose is to keep money transfers safe in some countries, such as Albania, India and several African countries, including Kenya. With M-Pesa you can make deposits to your online betting account with your smartphone by sending money to the number provided by the bookmaker.

This works for most Kenyan bookmakers, but at the moment only for 22Bet of the international ones.

Payments via Airtel Money

With Airtel Money you can make deposits to your online betting account via your mobile phone. Once logged in to your Airtel account you make the payment by clicking “pay bill” and entering the Business name (number) of the company of your choice.

This also only work with 22Bet outside of the Kenyan bookmakers.

There are not many bookies outside of Kenya that accept payments in Kenyan Shilling, but it is normally not a problem for Kenyans to pay in other currencies.

Payments with M-Pesa and Airtel

  1. Great choice for Kenyans

  2. Famous internationally
