Mcheza is the new online sports betting platform in Kenya and East Africa. It was launched on December 16, 2015, at the Serena hotel in Nairobi. Just like the popular SportPesa, Mcheza users can easily deposit money from Mpesa to Mcheza using the Mcheza paybill number 295525.
Mcheza is more like SportPesa. Both betting companies provide their users with an interactive platform. Both ride on the back of the world’s biggest mobile money platform, Mpesa. Just as with Mpesa to SportPesa, you can use Mpesa to deposit money from Mpesa to Mcheza. SportPesa and Mcheza users register by creating an account, simply by sending an SMS to a short code. The SMS short code for Mcheza is 29888.
When an mCHEZA user correctly predicts the outcome of football matches, they win various prizes. Nice and easy. SportPesa fans have their SportPesa jackpot. MCHEZA users too can win MCHEZA jackpot. Both jackpots are worth millions of shillings. The Kenya Betting Control and Licensing board is the organization tasked with registering and regulating all betting companies in Kenya.
The chairman of the board, Mr. Wambua Musili, relates the upsurge in interest in sports betting in Kenya to the efforts of the board in creating an even playing field for all betting firms in Kenya.
