Bet.co.za are one of the orginal Bettech based bookies, and one of the few to actually make good use of the platform. They’ve been around for a number of years and we consider them to be well established in the South African betting community. You’ve likely come across their tv adverts or other forms of advertising over the years, in other words you’d have heard of Bet.co.za. They currently offer a 100% deposit match up to R500, with that out the way let’s see what they have to offer.
The Bet.co.za site
The Bet.co.za landing page is a fairly basic one with a solid colour scheme and nothing flashy or fancy. It looks pretty good and you shouldn’t have too much trouble navigating the site and more importantly the markets. One thing we were not too keen on was the placement of the promotions button. It’s in very small text at the top left of the page, we’d prefer it to be in a larger font, perhaps with the other headers.
We’ve given many other Bettech books a hard time in the past but we won’t do the same with Bet.co.za. They are one of the first successful Bettech books, most other books strive to be like Bet.co.za but fail. It’s a generous compliment but they’ve stuck with Bettech and made it work for them, so we have to give them credit for that. Let’s have a glance at some of their promotions.
Bet.co.za Promotions :
Bet my Bru payout : Take a correct score bet on your EPL SuperBru prediction and if it wins, we’ll double your payout up to R1000.
Straight Set Bonus : Back a player on a match outright and if he/she wins in straight sets, we’ll boost your payout by 25% up to R1000.
Soccer Multi Special : Take a 6+ Soccer multiple and if you go one out, we will refund your stake.
Live Inplay Tennis Bonus : Take 5+ tennis in-running markets in one day and get a bonus equal to your average stake.
Strike Bowler Bonus : Back a player to be top bowler and if he takes a fifer we’ll double your payout with a free bet.
Bet.co.za has a fairly standard set of promotions, nothing to write home about but enough to keep you interested. They also do make event specific promotions which are nice when they do come around. We would like to see them expand their offering but at the moment it is reasonable.
Bet.co.za have fairly competitive odds, although that being said all Bettech bookies generally have their odds aligned. Bet.co.za do however seem to have a more extensive version of the software than some of their rivals and have a pretty solid inplay offering. We tested their customer service and found them prompt and helpful. They offer both live chat and a call in service but we’re not sure if they are available 24/7.
Bet.co.za Sports Offered :
Golf, formula 1, soccer, tennis, cricket, baseball, rugby, basketball, live sports, lucky numbers, snooker, motor sports, ice hockey, horse racing, darts, boxing, Aussie rules, American sports and more.
Bet.co.za offer a pretty good experience, being well established they’ve ironed out all the issues other Bettech books have. Your betting experience at Bet.co.za might not be the most memorable one but it will be one you will turn to when looking for decent promo or some inplay action. We’d like to see them bump their initial 100% deposit match up to something higher than R500, which is surprisingly low considering their status as a premium book. Also we’d like to see some more exotic betting options like Esports etc, but that’s mostly to do with the Bettech software. Other than that Bet.co.za are a solid choice for new and seasoned punters.
