- The sportsbook has an android mobile app ready for download at their site for its frequent users which ensures users can maximise on their data because the app is more efficient.

- Live betting, a personal favourite, is missing from the website. Notice the coming soon sign.
- I find the daily jackpot on the website too low to be attractive. It was also not available at the time of writing this review. More on this.
The one thing you will notice with scorepesa immediately you are logged in is that it bears an eerie resemblance to Sportpesa that once ruled the Kenyan betting market before the government drafted new regulations that most companies felt were punitive. Everything from the user interface to the logo just feels like Sportpesa. So, if you were a loyal player of Sportpesa, suffering from nostalgia and you can no longer bet with the giants, I have good news for you, Scorepesa has your back!
Scorepesa at a glance
The sportsbook is owned by Betwin limited and has been registered by the relevant authority i.e BCLB with 0000102 being its license number. The betting site is fairly new to the Kenyan market and is slowly gaining traction with the kenyan punters. The bookmarker has its offices in Jetro chambers, Westlands, Nairobi. Using the scorepesa website is really simplified for new entrants as instructions are well available on the home page menu for ease of access.
M Pesa is the only available means of remitting payments to and from the sportsbook. The process of depositing and withdrawal is also quite simplified and instant as it is only one click away. One does not need to leave the app to deposit as a prompt is sent to your phone once you input the amount you would like to refill. Most punters will likely appreciate such convenience.
Scorepesa in my opinion has one of the best customer support I have seen, a live chat options (indicated by an icon) to one of their customer care support is readily available at their website and the response time is impressive as evidenced below
Moreover, punters can contact the sportsbook through other means such as email, facebook, whatsapp and twitter which are very reliable.
As you can see above, the response is swift on facebook which is the most preferred platform to contact them by punters in Kenya.
The registration process is also quite simplified as is with other websites. A player only requires to input their number and choose a password to begin betting.
Scorepesa- The good
The customer care aspect of scorepesa ranks 5 star because of all the platforms available to players. Their response time is also quite commendable in all of this platforms.
This bookmarker is really not playing about with the adds it gives its players. Any punter who really wants value for money can check out the odds offered by Scorepesa. I guarantee you will not be disappointed
Their entry promo of 1000 kes is really generous to be honest. Not many betting sites can match this offer without having tonnes of conditions attached to it.
The jackpot-a market favourite, is a little too low to convince the betting pundits to place bets with them.
Not much offers is in place to keep players betting with the sportsbook.
Some markets are very limited with some games having less than 10 markets.
Their in play games could also do with a little bit of improvement as there is no way of knowing what games are currently playing, no way of tracking matches in bet slips. Statistics too are currently not available at the site.
Promos and bonuses
An entry offer of 1,000 kes is available upon registration provided one makes a minimum deposit of 20 kes on their account. The bonus can only be used to bet on game(s) with a minimum total odds of 5.
This bonus will refund a player 10% on every bet that they place provided those odds are not less than 5. This refund is credited to a punters account once they place their bet regardless of the outcome.
There is no minimum limit on amount one can deposit on scorepesa but the maximum limit one can deposit is capped at 70,000 kes
Withdrawal limits are determined by the payment provider.
Quality of odds
Scorepesa would give 1.84 for an equal chance coin toss which is average.
The sportsbook has unveiled a mobile app(android) for its loyal players and is ready for download at their website.
As a reviewer, I would recommend players to try out this bookmarker because of their handsome odds and ease of use with their interface. Also, the thin markets offered along with their games is favourable for new players with little knowledge on betting as confusion as a result of wide complex markets is avoided. Furthermore, I did love the fact that the limits placed on how much one can stake was very accommodating because for as little as 20 kes, you stand a chance to collect winnings.
Punters should keep up with this sportsbook as they are likely to have seasonal promotions and bonuses. The attractive odds will also definitely keep you coming back. At least I know I will!
Overall I am inclined to award Scorepesa 4 stars due to reasons outlined above. Many players will find their odds attractive though

The paybill number is 290080, account number SCOREPESA. Instructions on how to deposit and withdraw is laid out on their website
Is live betting offered by scorepesa?
No. unfortunately, live betting is currently not
I’m Kanyi Muturi and am from Tabuga, a small village in Nakuru. I have been following all sports since I was a kid and have been interested in the gambling side of sports since I was in high school. It took me a little while to get a grasp on all of the different gambling terminology and understand how confusing and complicated it can all seem when you first start.
Are you a professional gambler?
I am a successful gambler. But make no mistake about it: I’m a long-time recreational sports bettor. I’m not a professional gambler. I’m not claiming to be a professional gambler. I’ve never, to my recollection, even been acquainted with a professional gambler. And far be it from me to make the preposterous claim that following my advice will turn you into a professional gambler. It ain’t about that. Not here it ain’t. I just want to teach you a new form of recreation, a fun new pastime in what can sometimes be an unfun life.
