Mcheza was the second betting company to set up shop in Kenya. They initially started with only SMS betting, with their website being just a way to check for the SMS codes. Eventually after about one year, they moved into online betting. Now they have a fully functional website with many types of bets and even live betting.

Mcheza offers a daily jackpot. This is good because every day there is a potential for a winner. However, because it’s daily, then the amounts to be won in the jackpot are around 2 million KShs. This is less than competitors who’s jackpot can go into hundreds of millions, but is not daily.
One good thing about these guys is that they always have alternating offers running for loyal and new players. The current offers they are running can be found on their ‘Promotions’ page.
