Kenya’s sports’ betting scene is set to experience the entry of a new company with backing from British investors.
Triple 5bet which will officially be launched in Kenya soon, has received the nod from the Betting Control and Licensing Board [BCLB).
The company has partnered with one of the largest betting outlets in the UK, according to Triple5bet Operations Manager Jack Spencer, which will be unveiled during the launch.
Some of the top UK betting companies are BoomtownBingo, 888 Sports, Unibet and Hopa.
Following partnership with the new investors, Triple 5bet is bringing a gaming experience never seen before in this country, including the largest ever jackpot payout.
“It could be anywhere in the range of Kshs 100 million to Kshs 500million,” revealed Spencer.
In 2001, a roof repair man in the UK placed an equivalent of Kshs 1.50 bet in an English Premier League match and won nearly Kshs 300 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, Triple 5bet will offer the latest sporting news and cutting-edge pre-match and post-match analysis. This will equip punters with relevant information that’ll 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 sporting talent. This will potentially accord young sportspeople a path to livelihood as well as bring sporting glory to the country,” says Spencer.
This 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.
