Cheza Cash was also not affected when other companies were closed. The company has high ratings especially in terms of odds. Every week, Cheza Cash offers a jackpot of Ksh2 million.

Cheza Cash offers Karibu bonus and Deposit bonus to their clients. The basic requirement is that a player must deposit at least Ksh200

At least those are the available betting sites in Kenya as of 2019/2020.One notable thing is that players have reduced significantly since Sportpesa and Betin were closed. Initially, there were over 10 million players but now statistics show that active players are 4 million only.

If the government implements the 20% tax on winnings as interpreted by KRA,the number of players will reduce to as low as 2 million. However, if court interprets that only net winnings are taxed, Sportpesa and several other betting sites will return to the market and that will see a surge in the number of players in Kenya.
