3. Good Customer Care Presence

A good customer care will always make a user or client to come back. And one way to score in business is to have well established customer care. 

Try out the available lines or numbers of contact. If the betting firm e.g. Sportpesa, Bet365, Betway, Betyetu, Elitebet etc scores highly in the above, try out the customer care. 

Get in touch with their customer care to establish if in real sense they work and are ready to help. Many people turn to looking for customer care numbers or channels when they have problems and sometimes miss out because the customer care they contacted were or are fake. 

4. Establish Payment and Deposit Options

Don’t go for sites whose form of payment if through MPESA is by use of someone’s phone number. That’s not real, also thanks to Safaricom you have the Hakikisha feature you can confirm to whom you’re sending money out to.
