This is because they are designed to provide players with unending entertainment. No wonder foreign-based online casinos dominate the online gambling market in Kenya.

How to Choose the Best Online Casinos in Kenya in 2021

The big question is, how does a player choose an online website? Of course, to get the most of your casino experience in Kenya, there are pointers you have to look out for. Below is a list of some of the most important factors to consider:

●       Licensing: The first thing to look out for in a casino is whether they are licensed or not. However, you need to know the licensing agent. Also, find out if the license is valid or not.

●       Game Portfolio: The second thing to find out is their gaming portfolio. A standard online casino should have a wide variety of gaming portfolio to select from. An online casino with only a handful of the game is a big red flag. To add, game software developers value their reputation a lot and would not partner with a casino that is not licensed and valid.

●       Payment Options: A good reputable online casino should not have any problem partnering with recognized payment providers. Casino sites that have just a few payment options that are not trusted should be avoided.

●       Welcome Bonus: Another thing to look out is whether the online casino offers new players a welcome bonus. Everyone loves a welcome bonus. A good online casino should have a mouth-watering welcome bonus.

●       Bonus and Promotions: Most online casino sites always have bonuses and promotional offers for new and existing players. Bonuses and promotions are a form of encouragement for repeat patronage for players. A good online casino ought to have lots of these offers.

●       Support: No one likes the idea of being in a fix, especially when having a bad day on a casino website. Imagine the agony of not getting assistance if you can’t withdraw from an online casino.  Hence, the support team’s effectiveness and responsiveness becomes important.

You can have a quick glimpse of this by evaluating the casino’s website for its customer-centric approach through the support team. A good website should have at least more than two ways of reaching support.

Regulations of Online Gambling in Kenya

Online casino gambling in Kenya is legal. Also, they are regulated by the Betting Control and Licensing Board of Kenya (BCLBK). The regulating body was created by the parliament in 1966.
