Betgames South Africa Guide

Betgames have proven to be incredibly popular in South Africa, with more and more punters playing daily from their phones. These games are fully legal and licensed in South Africa and you’ll have seen them in betting shops and online sports betting sites.

For those that don’t know what Betgames are, they’re very similar to lotto draw games or lucky numbers betting and are provided by the software instead of a lotto operator. However Betgames are played every few minutes so you don’t have to wait too long for the next draw or even the next game, as you can play several at once. But we’ll be running through that and more in our guide.

How Betgames works

For Lucky 7, 7 winning balls out of 42 are randomly selected to the game tube. The draw is deemed to have taken place when at least 7 winning balls are selected. If more than 7 balls are placed in the tube only the first 7 balls are counted and the other balls in the tube are ignored.

There is only one betting round and players can place their bets on all available outcomes for the upcoming draw. A betting round takes place between the game draws and lasts about four minutes. Draws of the game run every 5 minutes daily. The games rules do vary from game to game so be sure to check out the Betgames how to play section before you start betting, you need to completely understand the game you are playing to minimize losses.

How to play

  • Login to your account;
  • Make a deposit to your account if needed;
  • Select a betting category and choose the outcome of the draw;
  • Enter your stake in the bet slip field Amount;
  • Press the Place bet button.
  • A message “Bet successful” will appear after your bet is placed.

The winnings are calculated by multiplying a stake by the odds. It’s not possible to combine (parlay) LIVE GAMES bets.Each draw has a unique number and outcomes can be found on the “Results” page. You can check your betting history on the “Bets” page.

    but they don’t give back the stake if you win. I once play betting category with 1.1 odds and I did not get my stake back. they should change the odds to 0.1 and stop misleading people

    1. Best Sports Betting says:

      They do give the odds back, their odds display is just different, they use the same odds display as Sportingbet. 1.5 at Betway = 0.5 at Hollywoodbets.
