Asian-focused Dafabets has set up a hub in Nairobi, Kenya as a means of getting a foothold in the African market.
Speaking to Kenyan business news sources Watts detailed “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 mature and respected due to its sport betting savvy and continues to be a growing sports betting market, thus giving us the stable base from which to grow”.
This news should not be entirely surprising.
In recent months, Kenya has grown to represent the 4th largest readership base of the Gambling911.com website after the US, Canada and United Kingdom.
The African nation abandoned plans to redirect all “illegal” online gambling websites to its own now defunct Web gaming venture years ago.
