Dafabet International has announced that its international renowned sports betting platform is now available in the Kenyan market. Making the announcement Mr Louis Watts, Director of Retail and Regional operations said that this was an important milestone for the company's global expansion.

"We are looking to expand throughout the African continent and it was important that our first initiative was to establish a major presence in Kenya – a market that is a mature and respected; is sport betting savvy, and continues to be a growing sports betting market, thus giving us the stable base from which to grow" said Mr Watts in a statement on Thursday.

Dafabet will be offering its Kenyan customers from day 1 the opportunity to place bets on over 30 international sports through SMS, Mobile and Desktop. Dafabet's offering will include continuous live streaming of sports including daily live UK Greyhound racing, as well as a choice of the best virtual sports currently on offer.

"What is important to note is that Dafabet in Kenya is not a distant, offshore entity operating into the market. From Day 1 Dafabet Kenya will be local; its product offering will be tailored to the needs of Kenyan customers and most importantly the business will be run, operated and expanded and developed by local Kenyan staff" added Mr Watts.
