Scorebet are an established South Africa bookmaker running on the tried and tested Bettech platform. They currently have a 100% match offer up to R2000 as their sign on bonus. Which is much improved from the initial R500 match offer they had in the past, so this review is already off to a good start. We’re going to review Scorebet and see how they match up and what they have to offer! Onto the full review.
Scorebet Site Down
Socrebet South Africa has been offline since the 7th October 2019. Visitors to the site are getting a 502 bad gateway error. We’ve been in contact with Scorebet and there is a software problem on their end. The bookmaker is not shutting down as far as we understand. We’ll keep updating this section as more information becomes available. If you’d like the latest info on the downtime then head over to our Scorebet Site Down post.
The Scorebet landing page is your standard Bettech skin with a slight twist, the twist being a Bettech site that is actually nice to look at, who would’ve thought! They’ve moved the banner carousel to the centre of the screen instead of having it as a header, which most sites do.
The colours are bright and bold, they really stand out and they’ve done a very good job with the branding. You’ll find the site to be clean and responsive on desktop and mobile with everything right at your fingertips. The register and login in buttons stand out which is a good touch as there are some much bigger sites (Betx) that haven’t managed to get this right.
Scorebet have the usual solid Bettech Quicklinks on the left hand side which give punters quick access to all the current and upcoming events. They’re also clearly keeping up to date with current events as they’ve updated the quicklinks on a regular basis. It’s a small touch but it makes a world of difference.
Scorebet have improved from their initial offering which had no inplay on offer. They now have a very comprehensive inplay and prematch market selection. It’s not going to blow your socks off but it’s more than adequate for now. We do have to give Scorebet praise for the improvement here, as the previous offering was nowhere near as good as what they have now. Additionally the odds are fair which is pretty much to be expected from a Bettech based bookmaker.
Scorebet don’t have any fixed promotions like you’d find at bookmakers like Sportingbet. However they do have event based promotions that we found to be pretty good. Some examples of recent promotions they ran were a World Cup 50% deposit match up to 10k and a live inplay lucky draw. Where you could win R2000 for placing inplay bets with Scorebet. We’d like to see some more general promotions like first try scorer bore draw etc as they would add a great deal of value to an otherwise neglected promotion section.
Scorebet offer the popular Lucky 5, 6 and 7 Betgames on site for customers.
Scorebet Deposit Bonus
Scorebet currently have a very attractive 100% deposit match up to R2000. It’s a good bonus and the terms, which we’ve listed below, are fair but we do find the wagering at evens or more a bit on the steep side.

Our previous review of Scorebet was scathing and in our opinion fully deserved. However with recent changes and updates Scorebet have really done a good job with the improvements. The site is easy to use and perfectly functional, we know this is what we expect from bookmakers these days but honestly the current site is infinitely better than the previous one.
The addition of a R2000 deposit bonus and actual promotions all count heavily in their favour. As we said before Scorebet is not going to blow your socks off but it will be a solid betting experience, one that we certainly recommend.
