Bet365 Kenya Upon completion of registration, a screen will pop up asking your preferred deposit method. It is not a must that you register the information immediately since this can be done later. Bet365 in Kenya contracts third-party payment avenues for deposit and withdrawals to reduce transaction.
The online casino accepts payments in different currencies, including US dollar, euro and pound. Currently, there are many ways to deposit and withdraw funds, including all major credit cards, large payment systems and bank transfers. Unfortunately, no bookmaker today accepts Kenyan shilling (KES), so anyone who wants to open an account will need to use adifferent currency, for example, dollar or euro.
Making deposits and withdrawal money is easy enough. It is recommended using one of the online wallets, including Neteller, Skrill and Ecopayz, but if you have troubles with putting money to your user’s account, we suggest Entropay, which is accepted by many other betting sites in Kenya. Bet365 also accepts credit cards (Visa and Mastercard).
We recommend that you familiarize yourself with each payment method in a specific section of the website where you will find information on limits, terms, possible commissions, customer identification and other major competitions.
Bet365 has a very good reputation among the punters. Cases of full account blocking without return are not known, but such a result is possible if you are involved in fraudulent activity. In all other cases, problems were resolved during correspondence with customer service. If you are a successful player and constantly win, then expect a reduction in the maximum bet. As a rule, the reduction occurs after the first withdrawal of funds from the account.
