1xBet Sports Betting & Casino Review

Over 400,000 online users bet with 1xBet and the brand is gaining a presence in South Africa. While not yet licensed locally international punters (and local ones) have been betting on the site for some time, and there are numerous countries around the world that do they are licensed to provide a service to, so we thought we’d give it a look over in our 1xBet review.

Before we get started, it’s important to emphasize that 1XBet are not licensed to operate in South Africa, even though the site is accessible to SA punters, so if you are going to bet on 1XBet from SA then you are not betting with a regulated and legal bookie.

About 1xBet

1xBet offers a great selection of betting opportunities not only on sporting events but also on TV games. A Russian based bookmaker you can bet on everything from casino to sports and more. The 1xBet Forum offers various types of competitions every month. They also hold the “1xBet Cup” annual tournament for the most active online users.

1xBet Site

The 1xBet site is well laid out and has some great colours. They’ve gone to great lengths to pack as much information as possible on the homepage. Some punters, including beginners, might find this too be a bit too busy though. Personally we like that everything is available at a click and it’s not too hard to find the different setting, sports etc.

The site also has lots of great built in feature and tools that allow punters to connect with them. For example there are desktop apps available, telegram betting and even advise on how to bypass website blocks, something South African’s betting overseas are familiar with!

1xBet Registration

It’s quick and easy to get registered on 1xBet, a registration form loads as soon as you hit the site. There are also several banners and buttons you can click to bring the form up, which looks like the one below. You can also click here to register today.

1xBet Markets

1xBet have a fully comprehensive sports package. This means they offer literally any sports you can think of, their market selection is excellent and the odds are fair too. Competing in Europe has taught 1xBet that their odds need to be competitive and we’re happy to say they are in line with most European bookmakers and superior to most South African bookmakers. You can even bet on the PSL and other South African sports, which is a lovely touch.

1xBet Promotions

1xBet currently offer a 100% Deposit match up to 100 Euros, or around R1500. They also offer several ongoing promotions, including ones catering towards casino players and even punters who prefer accumulators. Their promotions list is rather exhaustive so you can view ones on offer directly on the 1xBet site by clicking here.

1xBet South Africa

The big question on South African readers mind is “Can I bet on 1xBet from South Africa”? Yes you can. It is however an offshore bookmaker so while 1xBet accepts South African customers, there are several local legislation’s against betting with an overseas bookmaker so keep that in mind. Those wanting to bet from Europe will have no problem as 1xBet is licensed in several other regions.

How do I register for 1XBet?

It’s quick and easy to open an account with 1XBet, simply follow the below steps

  • Visit the 1XBet website
  • Click on the register button on the top right
  • Fill in and submit your registration details
  • You’re all set, your 1XBet account is now active


1xBet is a solid site that is a pleasure to use. They offer competitive odds, great promotions and a very generous starting bonus. It’s hard to fault the site and we’d love to see them become fully licensed in South Africa as it’s so featured packed we’re sure it’ll be a smash hit. We definitely recommend punters from outside of South Africa register with 1xBet.

    Hi 1xbet, I have withdrawn my winnings, using Neteller. and I then send my funds to my account Standard Bank, I’m located in South Africa, and Standard Bank send my money to National Gambling Board, and when I ask they told me is for investigation if is a legal gambling platform, now is been a month when I call ask they say they are still investigating. can you please advise what action to take now because I’m even not free anymore to deposit my fund because they might take my winnings again and I don’t know what to do as I really enjoy the platform is user friendly done the other 2 platform that they are not giving me a problem with.

    1. Best Sports Betting says:

      Hi Brilliant. This is the problem of using an unlicensed bookmaker like 1xbet, if the banks catch you using them then your money as good as gone. You can try convince the bank to release the finds but it’s unlikely they will budge. Sorry to bring you the bad news, I do hope you manage to get your money though.

  2. No problem to betting on eSports right now, I guess. It’s a good thing that 1xbet has a big line. I don’t know what to do if 1xbet has only sport matches

  3. I dont know how to make deposit in my account

    1. Why you didn’t see this one in payments on site?

  4. I am most interested in live betting. I only use an e-wallet. Now I’m in a small plus, but I play relatively recently. And I have one question, if I have a big amount on my account does it will be safe? Because I like 1xbet and want to stay here

    1. Best Sports Betting says:

      Hi there,

      Any amount kept in your 1Xbet account should be safe, I wouldn’t worry about having a big current balance.

      Hope this helps!

  5. really good bookmaker, I checked it on personal experience. Had express with 3 events, in total it was from 10 to 15. all three played and I received the payment and withdrew with no problems. Happy

  6. I bet here for almost two years, mainly because of the high coefficients. 1xbet has good choice in live. I passed verification fast and can withdraw my money fast, also, a large selection of broadcasts

    I made a deposit of 1980€ into my account. After 2 days, I was about to place my first bet after I made the deposit when I realized I just had 569.78€. My sports betting history showed no records between those days. Going deeper on my investigation, I realized someone, somehow, got access into my account, made a deposit (84,17€, don’t ask me why this amount) to be able to withdraw funds later to the same payment method, blew up 1400€ in slots bets, and was able to withdraw 200€. I had/have as many reasons to suspect the security breach came from me as from them, so I contacted Support. I thought “they have access to the invader’s ip address, the payment method used to withdraw, the cell phone used to confirm the withdrawal requested, they will do their job by provided me these details and clarify this situation. WRONG! It was/is very easy to figure out I was not the one who made those transactions, yet they REFUSE(D) to send me that data, instead, they put the blame on me for not being careful about my password but at the same time saying they have no reasons to believe the actions were not performed by me! Regarding this, it’s Interesting what they say on their rules: “THE ACCOUNT HOLDER CONFIRMS THAT ANY ACTIVITIES ON THE ACCOUNT ARE PERFORMED BY THEMSELVES. IF THE ACCOUNT IS MANAGED BY A THIRD PARTY, THE ACCOUNT HOLDER SHALL TAKE EXCLUSIVE RESPONSIBILITY FOR ACCESS TO THE ACCOUNT.”. This is great for them, IT IT BASED ON THIS ARTICLE THAT SO MANY OF THEM CUSTOMERS GET SCAMMED. The company (and/or its employees) can either steal money, or disregard their responsibility if someone hacks accounts. Besides, why do they ”investigate” these situations and come up with a ”we have no reasons to believe the actions were not performed by you” statement, when they could just state what their article says?? Anyway, I should have had read between these lines back when I registered and I didn’t. The main point is: THEY REFUSE TO PROVIDE ME THE IP ADDRESS, PAYMENT METHOD DETAILS, AND CELL PHONE NUMBER USED TO PERFORM THOSE TRANSACTIONS. Instead, they go through the easiest way, they disregard their responsibilities and say that the transactions were performed by me. What are they hiding?? What kind of behaviour is this?? DO NOT GET YOURSELVES THINK ”it’s all been great, I have no reasons to complain about them, whatever happens to other people happens because they are other people”. THAT’S A HUGE MISTAKE! I thought almost the same, with the slight differences that I I saw they were sponsoring Brazilian Soccer Championship, Italian Soccer Championship, and took a look at their SBR reviews and thought they were determined to be reliable. VERY BAD CALL.

    1. Best Sports Betting says:

      Which country are you in punter? Your local gaming authority should be able to assist with recovering the funds.

      1. Can you please do some research on 1xbet and remove them from your site they are scammers

        1. Sphamandla, did you win that money from 1xgames or sports?
