Sportpesa vs. Betin, which one is better?

Are you a soccer betting fan? Which bookies do you use? Sportpesa is the number bookie in terms of popularity in Kenya; however, this fact doesn’t make it the best in the market! So today I want us to compare it against another popular bookie, Betin Kenya.

Sportpesa is a company started in Kenya, so this explains the “pesa” part of its name. Pesa is a Swahili word for money. Therefore Sportpesa loosely translates to “sport money!” Just like Safaricom’s M-Pesa, we Kenyans have a sense of pride in it because it was born here. Betin on the other hand is not a local company. The company is foreign, but operates globally.

 

As soccer fans and gamblers, though, we are more interested in the services than the service providers’ countries of origin. So let’s see what they offer.

Odds

Sportpesa: Are relatively higher, but has no bonus no matter the number of games you multibet.
Betin: Are slightly lower. However, if you multibet at least five games, you get a bonus of at least 5%, which makes your earnings greater than its rival. The bonus increase as the number of games you pick continue to rise.

Choice: Sportpesa for single bets and Combo of less than four games.
Betin for long Combos, at least 5 games.

Games

Sportpesa is very choosy, so there are games that it may not list. For example, the Kenyan premier league games have been missing since the company announced its withdrawal from supporting local football activities, a decision it has since rescinded.
Betin’s games horizon is quite expansive; rarely can you miss a game here and find it elsewhere.

Choice: Betin

Type of Bets

Single: You can pick a single game and predict the outcome of the game, or an event in the game

Combo: Commonly referred to us multibet. You combine the outcomes of multiple games.

Split bet: Allows to predict multiple events in a single match, and combine it with other selections.
Sportpesa offers only Single and Combo, but Betin offers Split betting in addition to the two.

Choice: Betin

Betting Options

Sportpesa offers the most basic options such as 1X2, FT & HT Over, Correct scores, Both Team to Score, Euro Handicap, and HT/FT. The basic options makes it easier for novice gamblers to make their choice.

In addition to the basic options, Betin offers goal scorers, corners, fouls, goals in the first quarter and many other options. It has over 100 options, which is sometimes confusing.
Beginners would rather stick with Sportpesa, however, seasoned gambler would find a home at Betin.

Live Betting

Bet on a game that is currently underway.
Sportpesa live betting option has additional betting options, which you can hardly find in its conventional betting. However, Betin’s live betting has many and better options. The latter is also relatively faster than the former.

Choice: Betin

Cashout

This is the ability to withdraw from a bet with one or a couple of matches to play. It gives you opportunity to profit earlier enough or minimize your losses. Here is my story:

One Saturday I had placed a combo bet of 8 games at Sportpesa. Manchester City was playing Chelsea that day, so I decided to settle for the over 2.5 goals option. Unfortunately, while picking the games, I unknowingly picked that option in the Manchester United vs Everton match instead. So I keenly followed the livescores and thought I had won, only to discover that I had not chosen the Man City match. Interestingly, the Man U vs Everton was to be played the following day. So I had gotten all the seven games and I had only that Man U match to win Kshs. 33,800 from a stake of Kshs. 100. Guess how the match ended, one all-draw!

Mobile App

Most people I interview say that the Sportpesa app is easier to use. Others prefer to use the browser as the app sometimes fail to connect to the internet, especially when using Airtel data.

Betin site is too crowded with some games and events most people are not interested in. It has two mobile sites, sports.betin.co.ke/mobile and mobile.betin.co.ke. The formers offers better services than the app. It is generally complex, and may confuse you if you are not tech-savvy.

Here, Sportpesa is the favorite

Payment Methods

Both sites use mobile payment options, so you don’t need to be worried how you’ll send your wager or receive your wins.

Withdrawal

The Sportpesa app can be quite annoying with the constant Withdrawal Confirmation CODE SMS. I often advise those who seek my help to send the W#AMOUNT#PIN SMS to 79079 for easy, convenient and quicker withdrawals.

At Betin, the withdrawal process is simple, but it is pending period that may worry first time users.
Choice: Sportpesa SMS option (It is almost instant)

Withdrawal Duration

This is Sportpesa’s greatest selling point and it is actually why it is the market leader. Its efficiency is just awesome. Almost instant.
May take 5 minutes, but sometimes takes longer, even an hour.
Sportpesa

Customer Service

Sportpesa, though the most popular bookmaker, has neither live chat nor a toll free customer service line. It is quite hectic and expensive to reach them. On the other hand, Betin’s live chat makes it easier for you get your questions answered promptly.

Costs

Sending Kshs. 49, which is the minimum wager amount at Sportpesa, from M- Pesa to your betting account costs Kshs. 3 and it is the same at Betin. The charge increases to Kshs. 5 for amount greater than Kshs. 49 up to Kshs. 99. Kshs. 100 – Kshs. 999 costs Kshs. 22 and any amount above that Kshs. 33.

At Betin, the amount charged while sending your wager of at least Kshs. 250 is credited back to your betting account. So you actually pay nothing for sending such amounts.

All withdrawals are charged at Kshs. 33 at Betin, while Sportpesa charges Kshs. 15 for amount amounts less than Kshs. 500 and Kshs. 22 for amounts greater Kshs. 500.

Bonuses & Offers

Sportpesa currently has no bonuses. It terminated its Rafiki Bonus which enabled you get a free Kshs. 100 whenever a person you referred placed his first bet.

On the other side, Betin has a 50% Karibu Bonus for beginners. For every amount you deposit, Betin tops it up with 50% of the amount up to Kshs. 5,000. Meaning that If you deposit Kshs. 10,000, your account would read Kshs. 10,000 plus a bonus of Kshs. 5,000. The bonus amount remains Kshs. 5,000 even if you deposit higher amounts.

Conclusion

As you can deduce from the observation above, Sportpesa is a good option for the sport betting entrants. Nevertheless, betting gurus are best placed using Betin. Don’t hesitate to share your thoughts on your betting experience in these sites. If there’s anything I’ve missed, kindly share.

The Shamba Boy Saga

From Kilimani Mums and Dads Saga
**THE SHAMBA BOY SAGA:ONE**
I had always admired Ken, our resident Shamba boy. The man had a way better physique compared to that of my husband who was plump, with a huge pot belly and layers of fat hanging from his body while weighing almost 100 kg. it was always tiresome having sex with him. But Ken was muscular due to working hard in our farm, he would easily lift a 90 kg sack of cow feed and carry it to the store with much ease. He always wore a vest when working which made his bulging muscles even more pronounced as he walked around. Though not being the dark type as he was a little light skinned, he had a great complexion. The problem with Ken is he was uneducated and would barely speak English.
But whenever I saw him working in our shamba at our rural home, my heart would skip a bit wondering how it would feel to be in his powerful arms in an embrace or doing even some more erotic acts. This always made me feel guilty as I had never cheated on my husband since I got married to him for almost 10 years. But my husband had put on so much weight since we got married such that it got to a point I no longer fancied his physique. Trying to tell him to cut some weight was always frowned upon as he would keep telling me that the pride of an African man is his pot belly that showcased his hard work and how he eats properly, arguing that men who are settled and happy always end up with a pot belly and that having a pot belly is a sign of achievement and respect amongst men. But this ended up taking toll on our sex life as I even stopped admiring him. I dreaded seeing him naked.
But my husband was indeed a hard-working man with several business outlets in the county of Kiambu. He was respected even in our locality in clubs, churches and social joints he used to go. People thought we were the perfect couple but I was sexually starved and my husband was doing nothing to make it work. Him being the provider made him think that is enough for me and our 2 children we had gotten together since we got married.
The fatter my husband became, the more I began fantasizing about Ken. Some days I would watch him carrying something heavy with his muscles bulging and I would catch my breath for no apparent reason. But I was keeping my distance not to fall into temptations as I found my body wanting Ken from time to time until I hated myself. I even contemplated telling my husband to fire him but what reason would I give of dismissing him? He was a good worker by all means.
Sometimes I felt like it could be I had a problem since I never got satisfied sexually and my husband would get tired easily.
=====
However this all seemed to change when one day, when my husband had travelled to Uganda to meet a business partner I got home early and found Ken feeding the cows as usual. I had carried some goods in my car and some were heavy than I could lift comfortably. As I was trying to lift them, I hit a small stone and fell.
“Oh! Sorry Madam, you would have told me to assist you. Please let me assist you.” Ken told me with his heavy Kikuyu accent.
“Oh! No, I am all right.” I tried telling him but all the same he came over and lifted the sacks for me. He carried them with ease to the kitchen store since most were food items. I just stood there just watching at him doing what he does best wearing a tight T shirt. After he was done, I just found myself telling him, “Ken, thank you so much. Do you mind joining me for supper today?” I asked him.
He usually ate at his staff quarters so he got surprised when I suggested him to join me for supper.
“No, Madam, I am ok, I will just eat at my place.” Ken tried saying but I insisted until he promised to finish his work and come over at the evening. My children had travelled to Nairobi to visit their aunt and so I was alone in the house, even our house girl was not around too as he had taken a one week off to visit her mum in Bungoma.
I prepared some supper and at around 8 pm, I sat at the table room expecting Ken to come. He sure did not fail to come. He came and knocked the front door.
“Oh! Please come in, have a seat.” I told Ken.
“Thank you, Mama Kamau.” Ken told me as he got in and sat. Ken was a jovial man so it was not difficult maintaining a conversation with him, even though I was feeling awkward and nervous since I had never really gotten to be with Ken alone in the house.
I kept asking Ken about his personal past. It is when I got to know his actual age, he was 24 years old. I felt even more guilty admiring him since being 35 years old I did not know whether it was right fantasizing about a man over a decade younger than me.
I however did not know how to break the ice and let him know what I was feeling for him. I did not want to come out as a cheap woman, or immoral for that matter and I did not know how he would react if I told him what I was feeling for him. We were watching some random movies and the weather outside was cold since it was drizzling outside.
“Ken, how do you manage to stay like that when it is so cold?” I asked him since he was wearing a T shirt only.
“I eat a lot of mutura and soap at Kanyara’s place daily.” He said.
“Just that?” I asked him. I wished I would gather more courage to let him know I really admired him.
He smiled, a simple smile that made me even weaker.
“Yes, Madam. If you eat healthy, you will be able to withstand cold weather.” He said.
“You also have big arms and a nice physique. Do you work out?” I asked him.
He laughed a little, looked at his left arm and said, “I lift some stones that I made. My work needs me to be physically strong so I have to ensure I stay strong and healthy, otherwise, I might collapse under the workload here.” He said.
“Do we give you a lot of work?” I asked him.
“Oh! No, I am all right with the work, I can manage it.” He said.
Our dog barked outside severally. It was dark almost 10 pm.
“Why is he barking?” I asked.
“I don’t know, let me go and check.” Ken said standing up.
“Did you close the gate?” I asked him.
“Yes, I always lock it after 8 pm.” Ken said.
Ken opened the door and went outside. The dogs came running after him. He asked them why they were barking as if he would get a response. He went around our expansive compound before coming back.
“There is nothing, just some mongoose, perhaps or a wild cat. They are many around here and they normally steal chicken.” Ken said.
We sat watching the movie and just talking until it was around 11 pm.
Suddenly, Ken stood up and said, “Madam, I want to go to sleep. I want to be able to wake up tomorrow early in the morning to milk the cows.”
I wished I had the courage to just let it out of my mouth what I was feeling. I had always seen it in movies and heard of women who openly told a man what she was feeling for him, but I never imagined it would be so difficult to let it out. I felt like there was a huge stone seated in my heart that I was unable to lift. I even wondered, how does a woman tell a man she wants him? How?
“Ken, we can stay for a while. I am not feeling like sleeping.” I tried to talk him into making him stay a little more. I wanted to see if I would gather enough courage to tell him. But I kept wondering, what will Ken think of me? Is it even right for a woman of my social status sleeping with her shamba boy? Would I really bring myself to cheat on my husband with a shamba boy? A stream of questions formulated in my head.
“I shall come tomorrow and stay more, today I was tired. Tomorrow I shall plan myself not to get so tired and I shall come and watch more movies.” Ken told me.
I thought perhaps I should let him go and wait for the following day.

Court Use Your Teeth and Bite – Cliff Ombetta on Miguna’s Deportation

Finally the National Resistance Movement General, Miguna Miguna is safe, at the Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam. He was late last night deported by the Jubilee administration following five days of incarceration, despite the high court issuing several orders for his release.

Miguna at Amsterdam

 

Miguna was yesterday arraigned in a Kajiado Court to face treason charges but refused to take plea arguing he was supposed to appear in the Mlimani high court in Nairobi. The high court yesterday suspended all criminal cases in the republic against the NASA leader until he is arraigned in court today by 11 a.m. The government instead chose to deport him to Canada, a country his other country of citizenship.

“My Lord, use your teeth and bite very hard, the law must be followed to the latter,” Miguna’s lawyer Cliff Marube Ombeta said following the deportation incident. The case is currently underway in the Kilimani court and Justice Kimaru has ordered that;

  1. The  Court orders must be obeyed & complied with
  2. The 2nd and 3rd respondents to swear affidavits on how Miguna was released to immigration
  3. The Director of immigration to file affidavit by Friday indicating how he came into possession of Miguna
  4. The IG Boinet and DCI head Kinoti to swear affidavits on why they should not be punished for contempt
  5. Boinet and Kinoti to personally appear in court on 15th of February.

We will keep you posted!

“I Cause the Salga Stretch Accidents” – Schola

On 27th February’s, I woke up at 4 am and switched on my TV. Unfortunately, my GoTV Max subscription had ran out. Though I wanted to watch CNN, I ended up switching to KBC, a channel rarely watched in this country.

At about 8 am there was an evangelical program. I don’t follow such programs but that day I chose to watch. I was surprised with what I saw and this has formed the basis of this article.

Kenyan evangelical Churches are known to preach for financial prosperity. Their Gospel is curved to lure people into giving out their hard earned money to the church in the guise of tyth and the infamous “kupanda mbegu!” The naive people of faith give out this offerings in exchange for the so called “blessings” and “miracles!”

“Today, I won’t preach, for what I have in store for you will surprise you,” the televangelist warned as he introduced the program. The next scene was of a recorded crusade from Malindi.

The program focused on a testimony of a lady by the name of Schola. This lady claimed she, together with her colleagues, were responsible for the numerous road accidents along the Salgaa stretch.

She went ahead to claim that she is a member of an identified cult led by her high school teacher. The lady said her family is well off, and lives in Karen. She left home after police foiled her attempt to wipe out her family (parents and younger brother). She even confessed that a police lost his life from the incident.

Salgaa
An accident that claimed 36 lives

The Salga stretch has claimed so many lives. Many families have been broken, many children orphaned and people left with disabilities. The testimony of Schola should not go uninvestigated.

In the video, Schola claims she has a tattoo that  makes her powerful. She can easily control a man by just looking at him. She says she got money from men by controlling them give away their ATMs and PIN. She goes ahead to claim that the police are aware of her group and dread them.

Schola went to the church to seek or redemption after she refused to complete her assigned mission.

“I was ordered to wipe my family out but I failed. Because of this, I was to choose between my family and one million people.”

The confession of Schola may be true, or just part of the schemes of one of our local churches to claim publicity. If it is the latter, then this church must have bitten more than it can chew.

The testimony of Schola should not go uninvestigated. We’ll be giving credence to the shithole country narrative if we let such a confession go uninterogated. You can’t go to a state owned mediahouse and make such claims and walk Scot free.

But methinks this lady Schola is a fraud. While she claims to have been born and raised in Karen, she hardly spoke English.Her Swahili is also that with the Coastal accent. I think she is a fraud, just like the one unearthed by Jich Pevu some years back. It is no longer a secret that Kenyan evangelists buy testimonies to entice their congregants. But whatever the case, this lady and her pastor must be investigated. What’s your opinion on this?

The Slum Boy Who Scored 392 yet to join Kabianga School

Yesterday, in Mathare 4A, part of the Nairobi City Slums, a boy by the name Hezron Francis reached out to me. I gave him my hear, and I thought I would do him a favour if I shared his story.

Hezron is the second born to the late Robert Odhiambo Munuan’go and Beatrice Achieng. His dad Robert was the sole breadwinner.

This young man just did his KCPE and passed with flying colours. He scored 392 marks and was fortunate to be among the lucky few pupils invited to join the Kabianga, a National School in Kericho.26952093_1632862110115128_1238567717018477803_o

Having performed exemplary at the Bridge International Academy, Mathare Branch, the school got him a scholarship. Unfortunately, the education fund supports the school fee. The young boy is stranded.

 

 

I went to their house, and interestingly, I discovered that his younger brother too sat for the exams and scored 331. The two are just at home while their peers are already in class. The younger one, Jackson Samuel, has been invited to join Olympic Secondary School.

On Monday, as I passed by their house, I saw Hezron paint his mabati suitcase. While his fellow students were getting new cabins for form one, he chose to use the one their family has been using.

As a politician, most people know me. So the boy must have known I could help.
“Yesterday was the deadline to join the school, yet am still here!” the boy said with tears lingering in his eyes.
“I just need Kshs. 10,000 and transport to Kericho and I can go ahead with my studies. Kindly help me!”

I told him I would try, but I don’t know what to do. His story reminded me of my case in 2003. I had sat for my exams in 2002, and when the calling letters came in January. I was invited to join Sawagongo High School.

The story of this family rekindles the painful memory of how Mr. Ogot, the then Sawagongo Principle, send me together with my grandmother away, arguing that his school was not some village school where students joined at any time.

I came to Nairobi to look for scholarship in vain. I organized fundraising in May only to raise Kshs. 12,000, which was way too little to the Kshs. 70,000 I targeted.

After struggles, here and there, and getting the school uniforms and all the other stuff, I thought I could join Sawagongo. As to how I eventually did my O’levels is a story for another day.

I feel this boy, and I want to help him. But since I don’t have a deep pocket, there’s nothing more I can do than share his story with you so that any Good Samaritan out there can help these boys join School.

I’ve their family contacts and the other details. If you are a person of means and willing to help, kindly help these boys join secondary School.
