Is Sportpesa operating in Kenya?

The company’s sponsorship status of teams in Kenya stands suspended following the withdrawal of its operating license and payment tools by the Kenyan government which happened on Saturday, 28 September 2019. Sportpesa has thus temporarily shut business in Kenya citing heavy taxation as a 20% Withholding tax was imposed on all winning bets.

Will Sportpesa come back?

There are ongoing discussions with the company’s representatives, the government, as well as the regulators. There is no specified time for resumption, but the company promises to keep its fans and customers updated.

Sportpesa paybill number

Sportpesa has two M-Pesa paybill numbers; 955100 and 955700.

Is Sportpesa paybill active?

Sportpesa was cleared by KRA to continue operating but its paybill number is not working as of today. You will have to wait until the company’s license is renewed. The first step was for KRA to clear Sportpesa, then it will write a letter to the Betting Council to renew its license, and from there Safaricom will reinstate the Sportpesa paybill number.

Sportpesa jackpot bet

The Jackpot has 13 pre-selected matches that usually play in the middle of the week.

The cash prize for the Jackpot starts at KSH 10,000,000 and the amount progresses every week whenever we don’t have a winner.

To place a bet on the Jackpot, SMS to 79079 “JP” followed by “#” then the 13 predictions of the pre-selected Jackpot games.

e.g. JP#12121XX1212X1

Note: One does not have to enter the stake since the Jackpot amount by default is KSH 100.

You will receive a confirmation message from 79079 showing your Jackpot Bet ID, all the 13 predictions you have made, the bet amount, and your SportPesa account balance.

Double Combination bet simply makes it easier to make multiple bets at once instead of repeating the same sequence many times if you wish to place more than one Jackpot (JP) bet via SMS.

This allows you to place a bet with two predictions on a single game, on up to 7 games from the listed 13 jackpot games in one bet!

For example, if you wish to make 2 predictions on 3 JP games, you will have made 8 bets in total. i.e. 2^3 (2*2*2=8 JP bets)

e.g. JP#1X#X#2#12#2#X#X#X#X#1#1#2X#1

Step 2:

You will receive a confirmation message from 79079 showing your Mega Jackpot Bet ID, all the 17 predictions you have made, the bet amount, and your SportPesa account balance.

You can place as many bets as you wish on the Mega Jackpot, each bet still costs KSHs 100.

Step 3:

Double Combination bet on Mega Jackpot (MJP) simply makes it easier to make multiple bets at once instead of repeating the same sequence many times if you want to place more than one MJP bet via SMS.

This allows you to place a bet with two predictions on a single game, on up to 7 games from the listed 17 MJP games in one bet!

For example, if you wish to make 2 predictions on 3 MJP games, you will have placed 8 MJP bets in total. i.e. 2^3 (2*2*2=8 JP bets)
