Online Sports Betting taking East Africa by storm

The simplicity of the process is one of the contributing factors that has lured most people to online sport betting.

Online sport betting Bookmakers such as Sport Pesa, Royal Sport Betting, Just Bet and Bet yetu are some of the most popular betting companies around.

Boxscore: NAIROBI, Kenya – December 21, 2015 – Online Sport betting is a relatively new phenomenon in East Africa as compared to other parts of the world. The region is now moving towards gambling like someone on a pilgrimage. In the avoidance of being labeled a prophet of doom, it is of great importance for all the concerned parties to be reminded of the looming danger facing sports from sports betting.

With the jack pot prize that run into hundreds of millions floated by bookmakers every week, it is hard to rule out the temptation of match fixing. Currently over 20 bookmakers have established their presence in the region, thus providing a wide range of opportunity to gamblers who can now choose where to place their bet and who to gamble with.

We cannot burry our heads in the sand about the negative impact that betting has caused to sports in some parts of the world.

Prospectively, online sport betting is here to stay but what is uncertain is the impact that is going to have. However in the few years of existence, it has worn the hearts and minds of not only the gamblers but also sports fans and the public at large more than anyone could have imagined before. Everywhere you turn the billboards scream out at you why you should start betting like yesterday.. I do agree with him because online sports betting is now spreading like wild fire in this region. Its as if betting has sneezed and the people are catching flu, yet they seem needles of a cure any time soon.

Ugly stories of match fixing that has been blamed on sports betting has been flowing from different parts of the world is some of the negative impact sport betting can have on sports.

The airwaves are filled with stories of big money betting winners and television prime time is covered with such advertisements.

To the bookmakers so far it seems they are in a win win situation and to the gamblers it is a win lose situation, but to sports in general the impact is yet to be determined.

Other than the presumption of winning large sums of money and the temptation of betting that is akin to an addiction, the bookmakers have embraced the art of advertising at its best. It is a matter of clicking a button right from placing your bet, to receiving your cash if you have won.

ands by millions. Whether positive or negative.

It is also worth noting that East African region is home to mobile banking and thus making it easy for gamblers to transact money without any inconvenience.

In matters business and profit, betting has proven to be a very lucrative investment for bookmakers who themselves gambled and took all the risks to invest in this region which had remained in the dark about betting some 10 to 15 years ago.

Some facts can be attributed to the spread of online betting in this region.

However sports and betting has to find a way to existing together without one affecting the other negatively.

Upon establishing its presence in Nairobi Kenya the CEO from one of the betting companies said that Sports betting has finally arrived at its destination. In this region where most sports is at its infancy in terms of growth and development as compared to other parts of the world, you can imagine what can happen if betting is going to take that crooked root.

Because of this, the process is faster, efficient and easy
