betikaBetting is the latest craze in the country and a lot of Kenyans are cashing in. The Euro has just ended and in the final game for instance, the odds were heavily in France’s favour. Portugal eventually carried the day winning pundits lots of money. Odds for Portugal were in the region of 6, meaning every Sh1000 placed won the pundit Sh6000.

While many people keep winning huge amounts, the opposite is also true. A higher number of people probably loses money on a given day than those who win, but it doesn’t have to be so. Winning in a sports bet doesn’t go down to luck. We create our own luck.

Betika is the latest betting site in Kenya. It is licensed by BCLB (Betting Control and Licensing Board of Kenya) under the Betting, Lotteries and Gaming Act, Cap 131, Laws of Kenya under License number: 784.

Unlike most of the competitors, Betika is purely a football betting site, meaning you’ll not find games like basketball or tennis. It has leagues from more countries than any betting site in Kenya.
