Company & Website Info
Registered:Isle of Man
Company Name:SP UK Limited
SportPesa have been around for some time as a bookmaker with its origins in Africa but it’s only recently that the company have expanded around the world. Players in the UK may have been made aware of this brand through sponsor deals involving the likes of Hull City and Everton but why should you look into adding them to your own sportsbook list?
There is value here and although this site may be targeted more at the regular gambler than the occasional punter, there is plenty to enjoy from a British perspective.
If you’re looking just from a bonus hunting point of view then you’ll unfortunately be out of luck here. As of June 2017, SportPesa were not offering any kind of welcome deal for new players and that will undoubtedly hinder attempts to snare a certain set of customers.
There is a Best odds Guarantee scheme which applies to all UK and Irish horse racing but for many reasons it would be good to see a welcome deal and more ongoing promos.
Sporting Markets and Odds Value
Things really start to pick up when you cross to the list of available sporting markets. This has all the popular events plus some really obscure niches and overall, this is a roster that will definitely appeal to UK customers.
It’s good to see horse racing there at a time when a lot of bookies are excluding ‘anything on four legs’ and it’s a good and varied list. eSports and politics / entertainment markets are also present for those that like to head away from conventional sport.
As for value, while it’s unlikely that we will see SportPesa appear on the odds comparison sites for some time, early signs are good and suggest that, over the long term, the excellent prices here can compensate for the absence of a welcome offer.
Players in the UK will find that they have most of the funding options that they will need. Arguably, the list could be wider but it starts with debit and credit cards which is our main preference while you can also use Skrill and Neteller.
That should be the minimum requirement for any sportsbook and while there is scope to add some more eWallet providers in the future, this is an adequate start.

The demand for instant support means that having a live chat operator is likely to appeal to all players so it’s good to see that SportPesa have provided one. It’s easy to find the service too and it’s the fastest and most effective way to find an answer to your queries.
Alternatives are available in what is another positive side to the SportPesa operation and you can also get in touch with customer services via email, or you can take a look at the frequently asked questions which are comprehensive and laid out in a logical fashion.
In such a crowded market it takes something special for UK players to add yet another bookmaker to their portfolio and with SportPesa, the benefit comes with long term value. The choice of markets is a seriously extensive one and if you are a regular player, the competitive prices are the key to a good relationship over time.
It would be good to see some offers come in but if you look beyond that, you will find great odds and great choice and really, those are the main criteria that we look for when choosing a new bookie.
- Excellent choice of markets including plenty for UK players to enjoy.
- Good prices across the board, particularly for football and horse racing
- Effective customer service with lots of options available for getting in touch
- There is no welcome bonus for new customers at the time of writing – June 2017
