Playabets review

Playabets are an interesting book that has made a postive change by moving away from the Bettech model in order to improve their live offering.  They currently have a 100% match up to R1000 sign on offer and some of the best Premier League odds available in South Africa, and with Premier League betting being so popular Playabets are responding to what the punters want.

While the R1000 offer isn’t the largest you will find it does set itself apart with its low, nearly nonexistent roll over. You only need to bet your deposit ONCE and there are NO restrictions on withdrawing, a great deal for punters. There is nothing more frustrating than depositing, getting a bonus and being tied into ridiculous wagering requirements, fortunately this is not the case at Playabets and we hope other bookmakers will soon follow.

The Playabet site is fairly easy to navigate and you won’t have any trouble getting a bet on. We believe what is currently there is the 3rd major update they’re deployed. We like it and they definitely know how to put a decent site together.


Refer a friend : Refer a friend and earn a R100 freebet.

Highest Premier League odds : Match Winner, Over / Under 2.5 goals and more.

Acca bonus : Bet on 5 or more matches and get a boost on one of the matches.

Bore Draw refund : Money back on goaless matches on selected markets.

Super Goalscorer : Bet on two goal scorers and get a third free

Another thing Playa have going for them is their prompt and helpful customer service, which is also available on Whatsapp, we’ve tested this and found them good, prompt and knowledge, a definite plus if you need a bet settled quickly! They also offer a fairly high max payout of R200,0000 for those that really want to bet big. They also offer an Android App which gives them an edge over similar books who only have a mobile friendly site. The app isn’t the best but it’s solid enough to give you everything you need, it’s still head and shoulders a compared to what else you can lay your hands on in SA :

Sports Offered :

Soccer, horse racing, lucky numbers, cricket, rugby, tennis, American football, Aussie rules, bandy, baseball, basketball, boxing, cycling, darts, floorball, futsal, Gaelic games, golf, handball, hockey, ice hockey, motor sports, martial arts, snooker, surfing, volleyball, winter sports, water polo and specials.

Overall Experience:

We’ve had good experiences at Playabets and would recommend them for their low rollover sign on offer, promotions and general service. Seriously guys, we can’t stress how good the low roll over offer is, it’s not to be missed. They also have a decent site that will appeal to most punters and fairly good promotions. They are also very customer orientated and are changing and improving their site on a regular basis, all to make things easier for punters. If you are looking to expand your network of bookmakers then sign up with Playabets.

Sign on Bonus Rating : 7/10

Overall Rating : 7.5/10

Please explain why you have been offline the entire weekend and do Not answer your calls. I just want to know why I cannot login. If you have software issues that’s fine however let your punters know. It’s a pity I could not punt on the super rugby this weekend with playabets forced me into betting with a functioning opposition. Good luck to you.

Playabets are awesome. Quick withdrawals, website is easy to navigate, their support is staff is readily available and they respond timeously. I can’t say anything bad about them.


What is the actual fica and deposit bonus as I see ads with 50 /100 / 500 / 1000 etc etc some clarity would be appreciated.

Hi Anu,

We run different amounts and it depends on the advertisement at the time. The standard deposit bonus is capped at R500 but you can claim the R1000 by mentioning BSB.


Random question, I know I can do it with Hollywoodbets. Can I withdraw winnings from my Playabets account at a Playabets branch? Look forward to your reply.

Hi George, yes you can withdraw from any Playa Bets Branch:

Playabets is that best ever

Big Fan

They are a top bookie in my eyes, always improving and updating. Just wish I could get more bonuses from them.

They also have an app now but I have not tried it yet. Love Playabets and they must keep up the good work.
