Betsafe is quickly gaining traction as the number betting site in Kenya thanks to its well thought out advertisements and offerings. The company managing director of Betsafe Kenya is Alex Kobia. The company is Bet High Kenya, Betsson’s Kenyan subsidiary. During the launch of the operator late last year, Kobia said of their approach:
“Betsafe was created with the safety of Kenya’s sports betting fans in mind, with a first in-class responsible gaming environment that contains unique control and safety features,”
He went on to say:
“Additionally, we will be the first gaming company in the region, to hire a responsible gaming officer, to continually ensure alignment with Betsafe values towards its customers, and while managing our flagship responsible gaming programme in partnership with GamHelp Kenya – an organization that supports Kenyans with behavioural problems associated with gaming.”
