Kenya’s sports’ betting is headed for interesting times following the entry of a new company with backing from billionaire British investors.
Triple 5bet (https://triple5bet.com/home), which will officially be launched in August, is fully registered by Betting Control and Licensing Board.
Details released Friday this week reveal that the company has partnered with one of the largest betting outlets in the UK.
“We shall reveal the identity of the partners during the launch,” says Triple5bet Operations Manager Jack Spencer.
Following this partnership, Triple5bet is bringing a gaming experience never been seen before in Kenya. This includes the largest ever jackpot payout.
“It could be anywhere in the range of Ksh100 million to Ksh500million,” revealed Spencer.
In 2001, a roof repair man in the UK placed a Ksh1.50 bet in an English Premier League match and won nearly Ksh300 million.
Triple5bet will bring this international gaming experience to Kenya, through the enormous variety of sports, top quality odds, amazing free bets, virtual games and live gaming.
In addition, Triple5bet will offer the latest sporting news and cutting-edge pre-match and post-match analysis. This will equip punters with relevant information that will enable them place winning bets.
It has also emerged that Triple5bet’s UK partners are already in talks with various sporting teams in the country, on possibilities of sponsorship.
“It’s noteworthy that our focus is mainly on teams at grassroots level. Our motive is to hone latent sporting talent. This will potentially accord young sportspeople a path to livelihood as well as bring sporting glory to the country,” added Spencer.
These news will certainly stir the local sports betting industry as most sporting activities resume around the globe with the gradual easing of the pandemic-driven lockdowns.
