How to Play Lotto in Kenya
Lotto, the international betting companies entered the Kenyan market some time in 2015 and offers one of the biggest rewards any other betting company has ever given. Kenyans, especially the youth have in recent times become addicted especially to sports betting, but lotto offers a different kind of betting, which if you ask me is not that much addictive, especially when compare to sports or other kinds of betting.
What makes it better, is the fact that you can just send a number and forget for the whole week unlike the Sportpesa, Mcheza and others which you have to crack your head calculating the odds of the matches.
