ChezaCash happens to have a very easy and attractive UI as compared to other sites. ChezaCash is a fairly new betting company in Kenya having been established in 2018 and is gaining a lot of traction in the Kenyan market. The betting company does not have a dedicated mobile app for ease of use to frequent users who may prefer their boosted odds. ChezaCash has a nice selection of options to wager and this includes live betting, virtual football and Jackpot.
ChezaCash at a glance
BCLB which is the licencing authority in Kenya for such companies has licenced ChezaCash under licence no. 801. Infiniti capital limited owns ChezaCash and has registered its headquarters in the country in Westlands along Mukoma road in Nairobi.
Only M-pesa is available for transactions with ChezaCash and is quite convenient for the Kenyan market where everyone uses M-pesa since only a paybill number is used. Other money transfer platforms like credit cards are not available on ChezaCash.
ChezaCash Customer service
ChezaCash can be contacted through several ways by any unsatisfied customer. Gamblers love airing their grievances over social media, with Facebook being their favourite one. Another platform that may be used is the live chat that is directly accessed from the website and through the telephone numbers indicated on the ChezaCash site.
Notice that they were prompt at responding to this inquiry. It was made clear to Onyambu that even though the event ended in a draw, he had predicted that it would end with a winner (DC 12)
For anyone to wager with them, they need to create an account. Fortunately, the procedure is really convenient and simplified as one only needs access to the internet. The site will send the applicant a code for verification and that is just about it.
ChezaCash – the good
They have a generous Karibu Bet
25% first deposit bonus of up to Kes 20,000. The only challenge is that you can only use it on a single bet ezceeding 2.5 odds.
Their jackpot is broken
It looks like they used to have a jackpot but that link on their homepage wasn’t working at the time of this review.
Their cash back is a joke
You’re only entitled to a 100% cashback when you setup an accumulator with 19+ events and miss by one. You stand to gain more by participating in their jackpot.
Their in-play games could do with a revamp
There’s no match time displayed, in play stats or a match tracker either
The ChezaCash platform
I loved their search feature that takes in players, teams, events and even leagues at a go. One could search for available games to bet by teams, search by odds less than or search by odds more than what you want. This is even more practical at this age where any odd less than 1.20 is a guaranteed loss now that we have the 20% tax rule in place. This kind of convenience is unmatched by other online sports betting companies
Bonuses and promos
1.entry bonus(dubbed ‘karibu’)
Once a player gets registered, they qualify for 75% of what they initially staked provided the minimum amount they place a bet with is Kes 200 and odds not less than 2.5. This bonus is also legible when a punter puts a wager of five or more games in a multibet where each game has odds that are less than 2.
Whenever a player has deposited Kes 250 and placed a multiple bet of games exceeding 5 with the individual bets odds exceeding 1.5, they qualify for an extra 75 shillings worth of stake. This can only be used within thirty days from the day it was won.
If a player happens to place 5 different bets with the lowest amount being 50 shillings in each individual bet and with odds not exceeding 2.5 for every match, they qualify for 75 shillings to be used in future bets. The highest amount that can be won from this bonus is ten thousand shillings.
Quality of odds
ChezaCash would give 1.85/1.85 for a fair toss coin which is average.
While playing in ChezaCash, the least stake allowed is 30shillings whereas the highest amount allowed is Kes 20,000.
I could not find a dedicated mobile application for the betting site. However, the sites mobile version responds really well. I, as a player could really not tell if I was using an app or website. It’s not that smooth though. It regularly lags when you’re browsing and you have to refresh the page.
I find ChezaCash really lively and engaging as a player. Personally, I find the user interface really great because I am able to locate specific games I am after along with the markets of my interest without any struggle. Also, it’s mobile version, which is my main medium of access, is somewhat responsive. Participants will no doubt enjoy the lucrative deals and odds availed to them by the betting site.
Overall, I give ChezaCash a 4-star due to the ease of using the site and the general structure and the popular markets with attractive odds on offer. However, the betting company can do better on entry promotions for new players rather than have restrictions on the criteria of getting the promo.
Do odds even refresh when live betting?
Even though odds update automatically, you still get this reminder every 5 minutes
What is the maximum withdrawal limit?
There is no limit placed by the company. The only limit available on withdrawal amount is controlled by M-Pesa; and this too was recently revised upwards.
I’m Kanyi Muturi and am from Tabuga, a small village in Nakuru. I have been following all sports since I was a kid and have been interested in the gambling side of sports since I was in high school. It took me a little while to get a grasp on all of the different gambling terminology and understand how confusing and complicated it can all seem when you first start.
Are you a professional gambler?
I am a successful gambler. But make no mistake about it: I’m a long-time recreational sports bettor. I’m not a professional gambler. I’m not claiming to be a professional gambler. I’ve never, to my recollection, even been acquainted with a professional gambler. And far be it from me to make the preposterous claim that following my advice will turn you into a professional gambler. It ain’t about that. Not here it ain’t. I just want to teach you a new form of recreation, a fun new pastime in what can sometimes be an unfun life.
