A Detailed Guide on How to Deposit on Parimatch via Tigo Pesa

If you’re new to mobile payments, you may need a little extra help on how to make a deposit on Parimatch. We’re committed to top customer service, so we’ve put together this helpful set of instructions to guide you through the process.

Once you get the hang of it, you simply follow the same steps each time to reload the balance in your Parimatch betting account.

  • Step 1 — Call Tigo Pesa

Once you’ve registered for a Tigo Pesa account, you simply need to call them to make a deposit in your Parimatch betting account. Dial *150*01# to get through to the payments service.

This is an automated facility, so you won’t need to speak to an operator. This makes the whole process much easier and far quicker, especially if you’re betting via Parimatch’s handy Android/iOS app while on the go.

  • Step 2 — Choose to pay bills

The Tigo Pesa system will provide options to select from. On this stage, you will need the fourth option — “Pay Bills”. This way you will be able to make payments to businesses such as Parimatch.

  • Step 3 — Enter Parimatch’s business number

Every business has a unique number to identify to Tigo Pesa where your payment should be directed. When you deposit funds into your Parimatch account, we direct payments straight from Tigo Pesa to your account via our unique Tigo Pesa business reference number.

On this stage, dial “3”. This will take you to the next round where you enter Parimatch’s reference number — 351144. Insert it with a keypad to deposit payments to the Parimatch sports betting platform.

  • Step 4 — Enter your reference code

When you register for a Tigo Pesa account, you are given a special reference code to identify your account. This enables money to be sent to your mobile Tigo Pesa account, while also allowing payments to be withdrawn.

Your reference code is your mobile account number. If you can’t find it, look back for a previous SMS sent by Tigo Pesa or log in online to check.

  • Step 5 — Enter the amount you wish to deposit to Parimatch

At this stage, you’ll be asked to enter the amount you wish to deposit. Think carefully about the bets you want to place, and always take into account that our broad spread of global bets will probably entice you to place more! That said, never bet more than you can afford to lose. This isn’t strategic and it only ends in tears.

Note that you can deposit any amount starting from 100 TZS and up to 500,000 TZS.

When you’ve decided the amount you wish to deposit, use your keypad to enter the amount in whole TZS.

  • Step 6 — Enter Your PIN Code

When you get through to the next level, the automated system will ask for your password or PIN code. This is the private passcode you use to protect your Tigo Pesa account. Never give this code to others as this will give them all-out access to your funds.

Make sure you’re protected for onlookers if you’re betting on the go and enter your password now.

  • Step 7 — Confirm your payment

You mustn’t get too carried away and forget to confirm your payment. This is a common concern heard by Parimatch’s core customer care team. When topping up their Parimatch betting accounts via Tigo Pesa, customers often end the call before confirming their payment. This terminates the process and cancels any outgoing payments to your Parimatch account. In other words, you won’t be able to place sports bets because you won’t have made a deposit!

Avoid this error by always remembering to press ‘1’ to confirm your payment to the Parimatch sports betting platform.

  • Step 8 — Get Betting!

Once you’ve confirmed your payment, you’ll have triggered a deposit into your Parimatch betting account. Tigo Pesa will confirm and process your payment, sending it to Parimatch. We’ll match the deposit with your account, and route your Tigo Pesa payment directly to your Parimatch betting account. You’ll be online in no time!

If you’ve made a deposit and it’s been confirmed by Tigo Pesa, yet it doesn’t appear in your account, give it 24 hours. If this is still the case, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our dedicated customer service team.

How Long Will My Tigo Pesa Deposit Take to Show in my Parimatch Account?

As soon as the money appears in your account, you’re free to place as many pre-match, live, and virtual bets as you please!

My Tigo Pesa Deposit Isn’t Showing in My Parimatch Account
