BetPawa is different to many online bookies previously reviewed at JohnnyBet as it is based in the African continent. However, rather than focussing one country in particular, or Africa as a whole, betPawa has decided to focus on six countries.
They are BetPawa Zambia,Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Ghana and Nigeria. While the Kenyan version of the website is licensed by BCLB (Betting Control and Licensing Board of Kenya) under the Betting, Lotteries and Gaming Act, the other country specific versions of betPawa come under different regulations.
Gaming International (K) Limited, the parent company of betPawa also operates versions of the website in five other countries, such as betPawa Uganda & betPawa Nigeria.
Covering such a diverse range of African countries, how does BetPawa stack up as an online and mobile bookmaker? Read our betPawa review below to find out more.

It’s easy to see upon loading the homepage, why betPawa is one of the most popular online betting companies, especially in Kenya. The website is clean and uses a basic green, white and black colour scheme, which makes everything clear and easy to read.
Whether you decide to load up the betPawa website on your PC, laptop or mobile device, the layout of the website is the same, regardless of which country specific version of the website you use. So, if you use the Uganda region website, the home screen will be the same as the Kenyan or betPawa Ghana version.
However, at the time of writing (11/07/2018), the Tanzania betPawa website is yet to launch and there is not a date available as to when this might happen.
If you can't find your country version at betPawa, then we encourage you to try out 1XBET bonus offer, they accept players from all around the world.

1.2 BetPawa Promotions
First of all there are no betPawa bonus codes to enter during registration, which could grant you some bonuses, so don't waste time searching for them...
Each week, you can play for a jackpot prize and to win this you must correctly predict the outcome of 13 football matches. There are prizes available for 9 or more correct predictions and this is a fun game to play although not easy to win.
There are also small free bets available from time to time, depending on the site version. But they are only restricted to certain events and can be used on single bet.
On the Uganda and Zambia betPawa website there is a link to a casino section but this is yet to be developed on the former and offers only two games on the latter, Jacks or Better and Lucky Roulette. There are no promotions for Casino sections.
