GameBet are a new South African Bookmaker looking to break into the local market. They are powered by Supabets and their software, which in a way makes them a separate bookie. Let’s get stuck into what GameBet have to offer.
We had not heard of Gamebet until someone asked us about the site, so we thought we’d check it out and see if they offer anything worthwhile. It turns out they actually have a very impressive sign on offer. It’s a 100% deposit match up to R3500. This is a fantastic offer and we’re glad they’re showing some balls by offering such a large amount to new customers. Enough about the deposit match, let’s move on to the actual GameBet site.
The GameBet site is powered by Supabets and has a very Turfsports feel to it. It’s not the worst looking website we’ve seen but it does need a bit of work. The banner images look shockingly bad and there are only three of them, a quick change to hi-res images would do them a world of good. The odds and markets themselves are comprehensive and competitive which was surprising and there is plenty of choice for punters.
Other point we’d like to make is that GameBet are very good when it comes to feedback. We pointed out a few things on the site that needed attention or were confusing and they were fixed within 2 days. So kudos to them for taking the time to listen and action feedback from the betting community.
Multiple bets : If a game is scratched, cancelled or abandoned and causes the ticket to fall into a different bonus group, the ticket is recalculated when it is settled. ie. 10 legs are bet on but 1 game is scratched making it a 9 leg ticket which means you have a 9 leg bonus and not a 10 leg bonus
Money Back Bonus : Get 5% back on all losing bets.
Suggestion Bonus : We will award our customers up to R200 per customer on a great suggestion
Gamebet’s promotions are lacking with plenty of room for improvement. We really like the 5% money back bonus but there is little else on offer to keep our interest. Throw in a few generic offers and punters would be happy, it does not have to be be flashy, just a few basic acca money back offers would do the trick.
Overall Experience :
GameBet is a work in progress but to their credit they’ve spoken to us and assured us they are ironing out the issues. The sign on offer is the biggest attraction for now as you’ll struggle to find anything as good other than the R3000 offered by World Sports Betting. They also need to implement some customer service channels but we’re sure these are in the pipeline for the future. All in all GameBet are a rough diamond that with a few changes could become a solid choice for punters. We recommend you check them out but also check in with us as we’ll be updating this review as their product changes.
