World Sports Betting are a South African bookmaker with a strong retail and online presence. WSB have grown in great strides from what used to be a pretty standard bookmaker into a bookmaker that can now be considered as a market leader.
WSB are often referred to as the “People’s Bookie” as they are very interactive with punters and help sponsor numerous Superbru and other competitions. Not only that, they also sponsor the Cape Cobras, Highveld Lions and 2 EFC fighters as well as several smaller sporting organisations.
World Sports Betting currently have a huge R10000 first deposit match bonus, claiming to be the biggest first deposit bonus in South Africa. We’ve seen bigger offers in the past but few come close to the R10000 offered by Worlds Sports Betting. The closest you can find is R10,000 offer from Betxchange and the R15,000 one from Supabets, given the terms the WSB offer is better than both of these.
World Sports Betting Website
The World Sports Betting site itself is nothing special in the sense that it won’t blow your socks off but it has everything you need. It’s easy to navigate and you know exactly where to go and how to place a bet.
They are also very responsive on social media so if you have an queries they should be sorted out quickly. The customer service agents are also available 24/7 on phone and live chat which is a rarity among South African bookies. Let’s have a look at some of the other benefits of having an account at WSB.
The WSB Mobile site is simple and efficient. It’s slightly out of date but this does not affect it’s functionality at all. The WSB Mobile site is a joy to use and it uses very little data, important for those rand conscious punters. If you’d like to visit the WSB Mobile site click here if you are on a mobile device.
Getting your bets down early
World Sports Betting aren’t shy when it comes to pricing markets up and if you see a market you like overseas then the chances are that they will price said market up on request. We’ve seen several markets on WSB that you won’t find anywhere else. They are also one of the first books to price up EFC and Varsity Cup so if getting early value is your thing then WSB are a great option.

WSB have also added streaming of Esports matches to their site, something that is incredibly useful for Esports bettors. We’ll be launching a section dedicated to Esports Betting in the near future.

Our thoughts on Betting with WSB
WSB have done so much right that it is difficult to find fault with them. They have the best sign up bonus in South Africa, some of the best promotions and are attentive to their customers. If I have to be picky their customer service is average but available 24/7, we chatted to a few agents who seemed knowledgeable but took their time replying.
The site itself is pretty standard and they offer the usual deposit and withdrawal methods that you find throughout South Africa. It was a struggle to get to Premier League markets but they did have individual match quick links which were helpful, something which WSB usually add for all major upcoming and current events.
The offered odds are fair and I’ve never felt like I’m being ripped off, so your money goes a lot further than it would at most bookmakers.. Overall I’d highly recommend you open an account at World Sports Betting, you won’t be disappointed.
- Site & Features
WSB offer one of the largest bonuses in South Africa, a whopping R10, 000 deposit match. It’s worth signing up for that alone. You’ll have a great experience on WSB as they’re always running great promotions, specials and have some of the best markets available. The biggest draw back is that their site is somewhat dated but WSB make up for this in most other areas.
