How To Share Your Bets With Friends Using Bet Codes

Beechies chewing gum was “the thing to share” in the 90’s, but in 2020, it’s your favourite sports bets. Two of South Africa’s leading bookies, Betway and Sportingbet have launched bet-sharing features which allow you to share all your best bets with your friends!

Get anyone from your mom to your high school Maths teacher in on the fun. Just share your bet codes and they can win with you too. If they have a Betway or Sportingbet account, they can use a code or link you send them to log in and place the same bet as you in just a few clicks. In this guide we are going to have a closer look at how to share your bets with your friends using the book a bet and code share feature on both Sportingbet and Betway.

What Are Bet Codes?

Bet codes are unique strings of numbers used to identify single bets or multibets on your online betting account. Betway and Sportingbet let you generate and use these codes to share your bets with friends or save betting selections to place later.

Why Use Bet Codes?

There are many good reasons for sharing bet codes with your friends. Firstly, it makes betting more fun. When your friends or family have the same bets running as you do, it’s even more exciting watching the game together. When you win, they win. When you lose, they also lose—and you both have a shoulder to cry on!

Sharing bet codes makes it easier for anyone to place a sports bet, even if they’ve never used an online betting site before. Bet codes are also a great way to share the feeling of winning with your friends. Imagine how awesome you’ll feel if you all win big on the game.

They’ll also be grateful to have such a good buddy who’s willing to share! Most Bet Codes and Book a Bet’s must be done on mobile unless otherwise specified, so be sure to share your bet from a mobile device as the function might not work on PC.

Betway Book a Bet and Booking Codes

Betway Book a Bet lets you share any of your Betway SA bets with your friends via your platform of choice. The feature is only available for pre-match sports events on mobile, so booking codes for a game that has gone live, or resulted won’t work. You are also able to share your bets while using the Data Free site, and your friends are able to place bets using codes on the Betway Data Free site too.
