Business News

Betsson has launched sports betting brand Betsafe into the Kenyan market together with the launch of a significant responsible marketing campaign.

“Our Responsible gaming program is unlike any other in this market with the safety of the Kenyan sports betting fans in mind. Our online site contains unique control and safety features directly on the site.

Our communication will initially be focused on responsible gaming messages and we will furthermore support “Gamehelp” an organisation that supports Kenyans with gaming problem behaviour. We are also the first gaming company to hire a Responsible Gaming Officer who will be dedicated to pursue and improve us in this area,“ noted Alex Kobia, Acting Managing Director.

“As a Company keen on responsible gaming, we wish to commend and appreciate the recent efforts made by the Kenyan Government in the last couple of years through the Regulator, Betting Control and Licensing Board, to introduce regulations to further regulate the industry and wish to confirm that we will strictly adhere and fully support the Regulator in its objective of ensuring responsible gaming is achieved in the market. We are indeed glad to be entering the market during this interesting time under this new environment that has been enabled by the Regulator.”
