Betting World Review

Betting World need little to no introduction, as they are one of the giants of South African betting. Best known for their retail bookmakers they do have a solid online offering as well as a 100% deposit match bonus up to R10,000.  We are going to have a closer look at what else in on offer in our Betting World review.

Betting World Sign on Offer

Betting World currently offer a 100% deposit match bonus up to R10,000 as well a R50 Fica bonus just for signing up. The sign on bonus is tempting but you’ll need to be aware of the below wagering requirements.

You will have to play R1 000 five times before it can be withdrawn. Please note that your stake will not be returned to your bonus wallet.

Betting World

The Betting World site has been around for quite a long time and has slowly changed into the product that is presented today. The desktop and mobile sites have however gone through a bit of an overhaul recently, bringing some much needed changes and modernizing the site. We’ll be giving the mobile site more focus later in this review.

The desktop site loads quickly, is responsive and very easy to navigate. There is nothing flashy or attractive about it but it’s beauty is in it’s simplicity. We’d rather have a easy to use site than one that tries too hard.

Betting World Mobile

The refreshed site is simple and functional, everything you need like login, deposit, registration and more are available on the mobile site. Everything is available at the touch of a button and they’ve also introduced a useful banner carousel that has all the latest offers and promotions on it. There’s a little too much on the carousel which does affect the site speed, however it is still a good inclusion.

Betting World registration is fast and easy from your phone too, so you’ll be placing your first bets in no time!

Sports Betting Markets

Betting World offer the standard sports betting experience when it comes to their sports and markets. They currently offer betting on American Football, Lucky Numbers, Horse racing, Basketball, Cricket, Golf, Rugby, Tennis, Soccer and Motorsport and various others. A vast improvement when one compares it to what they had on offer in the past. It’s great to see them move any from horse racing and focus more on sports, which is essentially what most punters are really after.

Betting World Odds

The odds on offer at BW are fairly competitive. We looked through several markets and found them to be in line with what bookmakers like Hollywoodbets and Betxchange have. It’s good to know that you’ll be getting a solid return for your bet, as many bookmakers can be greedy when it comes to setting the odds, which is not the case with Betting World.

Betting World Promotions

There are a good selection of promotions available for punters to take advantage of, these include :

  • R10,000 First Deposit Bonus
  • 10% Cash back on losing bets
  • R50 Registration bonus
  • Various others can be found on the promotions page

Overall Experience

The Betting World experience has improved vastly and the site is a pleasure to use on mobile. The introduction of both a R50 Fica bonus and a R10,000 deposit match bonus should see more punters giving them a try. Overall we found using Betting World a pleasant experience and with their focus on promotions and competitive odds we certainly recommend punters give them a try.

Sign on Bonus Rating : N/A

Overall Rating : 7/10

  1. Betting world are not bad but they are not great either. Worth having an account there but they are a bit meh and average. used to have the best prices but now they are getting a bit greedier. Anyway I still bet there on occassion.

    1. Agreed, there are better…and worse. Just very limited option at BW.

  2. Nailed the review. They don’t offer anything to existing punters and only chase new horse racing ones. I stopped using them ages ago and it looks like nothing has changed. Won’t be going back to them anytime soon. Maybe a bet or 2 at the shop at the track but thats it.
