Beta Review

Currently in beta, Powerbets have just launched their online sports betting and lucky numbers site in South Africa. We’ve only going to give a brief overview in this review, as it’s still in beta, but the site itself is mostly functional and you’re able to access all of the important areas from the site. Kindly note that you can only access the Powerbets site from your mobile at https://m.powerbets.co.za/

Powerbets Registration

Registering is a breeze and you should not have any trouble with the steps, simply follow the prompts on screen to register your account.

Powerbets site

The betting site is designed and heavily optimized for mobile users. While they’re currently in beta you can bet and play from your mobile or desktop. However visiting the site on desktop will force you to use the mobile site. We’re not sure if this will change after the beta but we assume it will.

The site is great on mobile, it has a very slick app like feeling to it, and everything is available at the click of a button. All of the important links and markets are instantly accessible from the landing page so you shouldn’t have too much trouble getting where you need to go. The site does look like Supabets mobile in some areas, but these should be cleaned up once they’ve moved out of beta.

Powerbets Deposit Bonus

Powerbets have a 100% deposit match up to R10,000. A fantastic offer that sees them join the likes of World Sports Betting and Supabets when it comes to huge bonuses. To wager the bonus voucher you must meet the following requirements :

The 100% deposit bonus voucher must be played (single bet or multiple bets) on any sports market with cumulative odds 3.5 or greater. It is not necessary to stake the full deposit bonus voucher in one bet. Additionally : Deposit bonus vouchers are valid for a period of three(3)days after receiving them and will be voided thereafter. So you’ll need to use your bonus within 3 days or risk losing it.

While we really like the size of the bonus we aren’t overly excited about the wagering, but that might change over time.


The Powerbets site offers extensive betting on all major betting markets. You’ll find Soccer, Tennis, Rugby and other sports that you’d find at most major bookmakers.

Powerbets is looking like it has the potential to make a big splash in the South African Betting market. They have competitive odds, great supports and a really impressive mobile site. However the deposit bonus wagering is a bit of a draw back for some punters and we hope they alter the terms of the promotion soon.

Additionally the site is still very much in beta so we’ll have to wait until the official launch before we do a thorough review. Click here to have a look at the site and let us know what you think in the comments below.

    I was considering registering an account with them. But I noticed on the website that the bookmaker’s license is held by King Bets (registered with the WC gambling board). Any idea what’s the relationship between King Bets and Powerbets? Can’t seem to find much online information on “King Bets.” I’m not too convinced at this stage.

    Furthermore the deposit bonus criteria seems quite strange. I read on the website that a player will need to bet with their real money balance to “unlock” a portion of the bonus voucher – which then gets paid into the real balance. So as an example you will need to bet R 1 000 of your own money at odds of over 3.5 and then you will receive 10% back of the bonus voucher regardless if your bet wins or loses. So you get R 100 back and you have to place all your bets within 3 days after which the voucher expires. At these odds it is more likely that the player will quickly lose their entire real balance and only get 10% back at best. Feels more like a 10% deposit bonus to me.

    A bookie like WSB has a really good free bet system. Way superior to this I think.
