Sports betting is showing some great innovation in South Africa. There are many different features available to punters in SA, including cash out, auto cash out, match builders, bonuses and more. Not one single bookmaker has all of the mentioned features, but there are several who have a few of the ones mentioned in our list. We excluded betting apps, as there is some debate if they are a feature or a benefit. Let’s have a look at our list of betting features you should be using!
Cash out is proving incredibly popular with punters as it’s a great way to stay in control of your bets and payouts.
How Cash Out Works
Cash out allows you to get money back on your bet before the event you are betting on is over or completed. The amount of money you get back from your cash out is determined at the time of cashing out, and depends on the current likelihood of the bet winning. So you could be cashing out for more or less, depending on how the bet is going.
Where you can use Cash Out
Auto Cash Out
Auto Cash Out is similar to Cash Out but with one big difference, you predetermine when you want your bet to cash out and the system will automatically do it for you. This is a great feature that punters should give some serious thought about, as it allows you to be away from your mobile or PC without having to worry about cashing your bet out.
How Auto Cash Out Works
Auto Cash Out gives you the complete control over your bet, even when you are not near a mobile device or computer.
So if you reckon your selection will score the first goal but don’t fancy their match odds chances? Just set a Cash Out value and if that value is reached you’ll be paid the amount immediately regardless of your original selection.

Build a Bet
Build a bet allows you to bet on several different markets for a single football match to give a bigger return, it’s like an accumulator of bets for a single match. Usually this is not possible due to related markets but it is now with build a bet.
How Build a Bet Works
You can combine match winner, cards, corners, goal scorers and more into a single bet with Build a Bet. For example a punter can bet on Liverpool to win, 2 goals to be scored, Liverpool to have 7+ corners and 12+ throw ins, all in one bet! Naturally the more you add to the bet the higher your return will be, making it very popular with punters.

Edit my Bet
Edit my bet is a brand new betting feature from Sportingbet, its a bet slip editor that lets punters change bets that they have already placed. You can add or remove selections to your running bets, all from your mobile or via the Sportingbet App.
How Edit my Bet works
The sporting action never stands still, so why should your bet? Edit My Bet gives you more control over your betting, allowing you to change any single or Multi bet that has Cash Out available.
Gone are the days of placing your bet and waiting for the result – don’t like how your bet is going? Then change it! Feeling even more confident once the action begins? Add selections or increase your stake to boost your potential winnings. Bets can be amended by adding, swapping or removing selections, as well as adding additional stake

Deposit bonuses are a fantastic way to extra some extra bang for your buck while trying out a new bookmaker. First deposit bonuses are giving to customers making their first deposit with a bookmaker, usually a 100% deposit match.
We always recommend maximizing your first deposit with a bookmaker, as much as your budget allows. It’s better to save up for a R200 deposit that say a R50 one. The bigger 1st deposit will give you a bigger bonus to play with. Just remember there is usually playthrough attached to these bonuses, meaning you’ll need to bet through them a certain number of times before withdrawing.
