This is the standard payment method used by overseas bookmakers operating in Kenya’s betting sector. Visa and Mastercard are the most often used cards due to their secure transactions and quick processing times. These cards are available to Kenyans who have accounts with the country’s top local and foreign banks.
To make a deposit with a debit/credit card, log into your bookmaker account, click ‘Deposit,’ and choose ‘Debit/Credit card‘ as your payment option. Fill in the essential personal and credit card information. Carry on with the transaction as necessary. Your payment is immediately recorded in your bookmaker account.
Customers can fund their betting accounts by transferring money directly from their bank accounts. Large sums of money are usually sent via bank transfers. A number of major banks, including KCB, NBK, Equity Bank, Cooperative Bank, Stanchart, and ABSA, offer this service. Bank transfers can be made online, via bank mobile apps, or in-person at a local branch. This is not a payment method available at all bookmakers.
