BetOlimp review

BetOlimp are the new kid on the block in the South African betting industry. You may have seen their brick and mortar store in Cape Town and perhaps even had a bet there. Olimp have a strong Eastern European presence with operations in Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Tajikistan, you’ll likely find them in any of the ……stan countries, except perhaps Afghanistan. Betolimp currently have a 100% match offer up to R3000, a great offer that we really recommend taking up.

BetOlimp have been around for some time, having been founded in 2004. So they’re very much an established bookmaker operating locally. It’s great news for South African bettors that an international book has decided to build an online presence here, we hope they are the first of many. Enough of the pleasantries, let’s see how Bet Olimp measures up.

BetOlimp Site

The Olimp site has a fairly simple layout and navigation is a breeze, something that is missing with many local bookmakers. Want to bet on soccer? Click the soccer tab and a well constructed menu with the most important soccer games with be stickied at the top. Not only that but they also display the number of matches available to be on for each type of sport. So no more clicking Volleyball only to find that there isn’t actually any Volleyball to bet on.

Another great feature that Olimp has to offer is their Live Score and Statistics pages. Something that adds a fair bit of value to the site and is very useful to punter.

Olimp also offer some of the most comprehensive markets and their odds are very competitive, which is sure to attract seasoned bettors. They have some of the largest Esports and Tennis betting coverage in South Africa, rivalled only by WSB. We also found their customer service to be prompt and there were no awkward pauses between questions. Olimp confirmed that they strive to process withdrawals to South Africans within 24 hours, something we haven’t tested ourselves yet but will in the future.

BetOlimp App

BetOlimp have launched a brand new app and we’re currently in the process of reviewing it.

BetOlimp Promotions

10% Accumulator Bonus :


Boosted Accumulators :


Promotions are the one area that they are lacking in but it does reflect what they have on their international site. We’d like to see a few more offers in here, even if they are the generic bore draws or money back specials. BetOlimp do however offer LOADS of enhanced odds and short term specials, all of which are accessible from their homepage.

Placing a Bet

Another minor grip with Olimp is their bet placement styling, it can be a bit difficult to know what the market you are betting on is until you put it in the bet slip. However this seems to have been resolved with the launch of their new software so it’s no longer an issue. BetOlimp have finally had their 100% match offer approved and it’s now live on their site. The offer is a lovely 100% match up to R3000, which has gone up considerably from their initial R500 match offer. Great stuff!

Overall Experience

Olimp are a breath of fresh air in a market dominated by Bettech bookies. Their competitive odds and simple to use platform all work in their favour but they do lose some points when it comes to their promotions but then gain some back with a strong deposit offer. They also score high on their customer service, which is rare among local bookies and available 24/7. We’d certainly recommend you open an account with BetOlimp as they look to have a bright future in South Africa.

  1. Use at own risk, burnt my fingers and bets void and money lost. Never again

  2. burnt my fingers badly . Ludicrous explanation for making bets void and then not refunding. Use this site at your own risk, I will not touch them ever again,

  3. Got burnt badly but so you learn

  4. Be very aware using this site. I had a bonus bet of 2500,the only reason i used them and then rhey declared the bet void and took all my money. I can give full details. Use at own risj

  5. Please do not in any way use this Bet company. OLIMP is a scam and they never credit your winnings. They come up with stories about traders having credited your account yet funds are not there. Please be careful

    1. Best Sports Betting says:

      Hi Rkde,

      Would you be able to give us more detail so we can take it up with Betolimp?

  6. Glen Murphy says:

    Are these guys legitimate? Their live chat and whatsapp doesn’t work but they listed it there?
    Anyone still using this site and manages to withdraw?

    1. Best Sports Betting says:

      Hi Glen, we’ve personally visited their offices, deposited and withdrawn from them, they are legitimate. I’ve passed on your comments to their ops team as we can understand your concern.

  7. After two times having some big winnings the maximum I can bet now is like R5.00 and then they say there is no limit on my account

    1. Best Sports Betting says:

      Hi Renier, we’ve passed this along to BetOlimp

  8. Can’t believe you say their deposit bonus is “great”
    Have you read (and understood) the t’s & cs?

    1. Best Sports Betting says:

      Hi Bertie,

      What don’t you like about the bonus? It has 5 x wagering at 1.80 which is very reasonable, the only draw back we can see is the 7 days that you have to use the bonus.

      1. you have 7 days to use the bonus AND to satisfy the the 5x wagering AND the max you can win with the bonus is R10,000.00

      2. The most you can win with the bonus is 10,000
        If you fail to fulfill wagering requirements within 1 week both bonus and winnings on bonus money is forfeited

        1. Best Sports Betting says:

          Thanks Bertie, very good point. We’ll be sure to add that as a note to our review.

  9. Why do they have no bonus?They are a big brand?

  10. Please help says:

    Hallo Best Sports Betting. I cannot access the BetOlimp website? Are they offline? Can you help?

    1. Best Sports Betting says:

      Working fine on our end mate.

    1. Best Sports Betting says:

      Not at the moment Val

  11. Boss punter says:

    Thanks for the review, the site is pretty crap but the odds are good. Think I will give them a shot.
