The largest gaming platform SportPesa has announced that it will go back to its normal activities should they return to operations as soon as end of this week. The betting platform which has been out of service in Kenya for close to 3 months has been cleared by the revenue authority and is currently waiting for the provision of a new operation licence from BCLB.
According to a number of sources close to the firms bosses, the process has been completed and company is only waiting for the restoration of their Safaricom MPesa Paybill numbers 955100 and 955700 and their Airtel Paybill number SportPesa to relaunch their operations in every part of the country.
Though the company has given in to the governments demand and will withhold 29% tax on winnings just like Betway Kenya, insiders note that the company has restructured its way of appealing to huge base of customers and will attempt to win all back by introducing a lucrative package never seen on the African continent. The relaunch to be aired live in all stations has already been scheduled and only date awaits destiny.
Sportpesa has also noted that it will continue supporting local talents through sponsorship of the KPL and top clubs now struggling to raise funds after they developed cold feet in order to show their impact to the current situation in the country.
Both the Mega Jackpot and Midweek Jackpot will continue existing and lowest betting amount maintained at 49 shillings. Remember, others such as Betlion and Betika have already introduced the Mega Jackpot with Betika charging only 49 shillings as compaired to SportPesa’s MJP.
