Terms and Conditions


The terms and conditions govern the way we do business, how we take and settle bets, and identify what you can expect from Rain Digital (T) Ltd, P.O.Box 32513, Dar Es Salaam (hereafter referred to as Mkekabet).

This page tells you the terms and conditions on which you may make use of our website and SMS service, whether as a guest or a registered user. Please read these terms carefully before you start to use our services. By using our services, regardless of how you access them, you confirm that you accept these terms and that you agree to abide by them. If you do not agree to these terms of use, please refrain from using our services.


  1. 1. General
    • 1.1The Law prohibits betting by persons under age of 18 and we may at any time ask you to confirm your age. Underage clients will have their accounts closed immediately and any balances forfeited. We may also suspend ANY account for any reason and ask you to come with Passport/ID to one of our offices or agents to prove age, and identity. Individuals suspecting underage gambling are encouraged to report this to us immediately on our customer service number +255 758 606 197 (Vodacom), +255 676 260 553 (Tigo) or via email to support@mkekabet.com
    • 1.2Your Tanzanian mobile phone number (+255) is your Customer identity. We use mobile phone numbers to uniquely identify customers and their account details. The Customer has sole responsibility to ensure that their security details remain confidential. Any transactions that have been placed by a user who is securely logged into the Customer's account will be the Customer's responsibility. If transactions are made via your phone by someone who is not the registered user, the registered user will remain liable for their transactions. We cannot do account transactions for accounts which are not identical to the phone number. This means that you cannot ask to be paid out on a different number other than the number you have placed a bet with and you cannot send money to us and request that this is placed in a different account.
    • 1.3 Bets cannot be cancelled or changed once the bet has been recorded within our betting platform.
    • 1.4Mkekabet accepts bets made online, Mobi or SMS which for clarity includes the use of iphone, Android applications and early generation GSM phones. Bets are not accepted in any other form (telephone, email, fax, in person, etc.) and any bets received in these forms will be null and void.

    • 1.7 Mkekabet reserves the right to void any or all bets that have been made by any person or group of persons who are acting in an attempt to defraud us. If there is any evidence of a series of bets, each containing the same selection having been placed by or for the same individual or syndicate of individuals, Mkekabet reserves the right to make such bets void and suspend relevant accounts. This rule applies to both settled and unsettled bets.
    • 1.8 Mkekabet reserves the right to void any bet that may have been accepted when the account did not have sufficient funds to cover the bet.

    • 1.9Should funds be credited to a Customer's account in error, it is the Customer's responsibility to notify Mkekabet of the error without delay. Any winnings subsequent to the error shall be deemed invalid and returned to Mkekabet. Mkekabet has the right to revert the transaction.

      If you remain dissatisfied we may agree with you to refer the matter to an independent third body for arbitration, such as the Gaming Board of Tanzania whose decision will be final. No dispute regarding any bet or transaction will result in litigation, court action or objection to a bookmaker's license or permit unless Mkekabet fails to implement the decision given by arbitration.

      If, notwithstanding the above, the customer issues Court proceedings, Mkekabet reserve the right to apply to stay those proceedings pending determination by an independent body. If the customer fails or refuses to follow the ruling of an agreed independent body, the customer will reimburse all resulting expenses (including court fees) incurred by Mkekabet.
