The Kenya government has recently announced that 27 betting sites will not have their betting license renewed. It appears that the government is taking further action and all starting today all the paybill numbers of the affected companies are no longer active, and if you attempt to make a deposit you will receive a notification that deposits are no longer allowed to the banned betting sites. This is the message you get when you attempt to deposit to sportpesa.
Failed. Dear Customer, this Paybill is unavailable due to the Government directive to suspend Betting Paybill numbers. Kindly contact your Betting Company.
The ban affects some of the most popular betting sites in the country including sportpesa, betin, 1xbet, and betpawa. However, the good news is that there are still more than 10 active betting sites whose paybill numbers are working as confirmed by our team. Below is a list of all the betting sites that have not been banned by the government, where you can still make deposits via mpesa.
We will keep updating the list with companies that have functioning paybill numbers.
