In the recent years there has been a boom in the betting industry in Kenya. This is simply evidenced by the increase in the number of advertisements on bill boards and in the print media.
Cybercafés, not only in the city centre of Nairobi but also in universities, have become betting houses.
Though the market value of betting and gambling industry in Kenya is not clearly stated, it is estimated to be as high as a billion shilling a week. It is estimated that the average person who bets spends about KSh. 5000 every month on betting.
