How to Deposit to Megapari Kenya with Mpesa
Firstly, you need to log into your Megapari Kenya account/app in order to make a deposit. Afterwards, to deposit to PeriPesa using M-pesa, click on “Deposit” on the menu bar or, under “my account” go to the deposit section. On the pop-up window (or the deposit page), you will be presented with Megapari deposit options which you can pick from. The page would display options like in the graphic below:
Step 1: Click on MPESA Option
Once you select Mpesa, a dialog box like the one displayed below will open. As you can see, the minimum deposit amount is just 30 KES, and is capped at 250,000 KES. This amount obviously is subject to fluctuation based on the service provider terms. Standard transaction charges hold true.
Step 2: Fill in the Deposit Details
PLEASE NOTE: While making deposits, you must provide your email address in the space provided as well as your names (the two names as they appear in your mpesa messages or ID). Failure to this, you can’t really proceed to the next step.
If you have done everything correctly, just click on “CONFIRM” button and go to the next step below.
Step 3: Complete the Deposit from your PHONE
You should see a prompt on your phone’s screen with Mpesa asking you to enter your PIN in order to make the deposit. If your screen locks or the message accidentally cancels, just start the deposit process again from step one and this time, do it better.
Step 4: Fill the Mpesa Prompt
The Mpesa deposit prompt will appear like the image below. Just enter your mpesa PIN to authorize the transaction.
Once done, you will receive a transaction message from Mpesa confirming the payment. Similarly, you can check the message notifications in your Megapari Kenya account with the status of your deposit (rejected or successful). Deposits only get rejected if you initiate them on the site and fail to complete them from your end. Otherwise, Megapari does not outrightly reject your funds. It is often something to do with your end, technically.
And that is just how one can deposit to Megapari Kenya in a few clicks. It will not be any much different with other deposit and withdrawal options, as you will need to just follow the prompts as guided by Megapari website/app, and voila!
Next, let us see an example of withdrawing your funds from Megapari via Mpesa.
How to Withdraw from Megapari Kenya with Mpesa
Withdrawals are equally simple. To withdraw from Megapari Kenya via Mpesa, take the following steps:
Step 1: Initiate Withdrawal Process
Log in to your Megapari account and go to “My Account”. Then click on the withdawal tab/section/link on the side menu. Select Mpesa from the many options. A display like the one below will show up.
As a precaution, try and follow the leads we have pointed out with the arrows in the figure above. Note that you must enter your email, two names, etc before proceeding to the next steps.
Step 2: Enter Megapari Confirmation Code
Once you click on “confirm” in the above step, Megapari will send you a code (number) to insert in the “SMS code” space. Check your phone and if it hasn’t arrived after a certain interval, click on the “resend code” button. Nonetheless, insert the code if you have received it and click on the confirm button. Check the image below for example.
That should lead you to the next stage.
Step 3: Success Message
You should now see a success message on your screen confirming that all has gone through. However, it is prudent to note that Megapari will still have to whitelist this request to see if it meets the terms.
Step 4: Final Step (Get your Money)
If your withdrawal request has been approved by the system (it should not take more than 2 minutes), you will received an Mpesa message on your device confirming the receipt of your withdrawn funds.
On the other hand, it is possible for withdrawals to be rejected according to Megapari terms, and this is an important thing to be consider. Some of the grounds include Megapari’s strong anti-money laundering monitoring and preventive measures. Money laundering is basically trying to clean proceeds of illicit money by making them pass through legit activities. For instance, a person dealing drugs may opt to wash their dirty money by depositing to a Megapari account and withdrawing instantly. That is not allowed at Megapari Kenya at all.
They actually have it in their terms and conditions that one must place a bet of at least 1.1 odds in order to be able to withdraw their funds. Many bookies already do this in Kenya, amongst them being; Sportybet, 1xBet, 22bet and others. So, it is not a foreign idea. It also applies to money transfer services like Mpesa where there is a daily cap on daily transactions.
So, yes. If you think you will just deposit and withdraw at Megapari, then that is not allowed. Make sure the money you deposit is one that you intend on betting with. The image below gives you a glimpse.
We actually reached out to Megapari on this issue and they gave us this response as well as pointed us to the terms. That said, if you win your bets; no matter the amount, you can withdraw the entire winnings normally without any restrictions as that is a legit win not subject to further control or scrutiny.
