125% 1st Deposit bonus up to R1000
Betway is one of Africa’s leading brand-names and their South African platform has the potential to become a leading player.
The Betway South Africa site has established an international name for top promotions, substantial bet-markets and professional service, and the South African version looks to be following the winning template.
Betway.co.za does not rely on flashy neon colours nor HD graphics splashed liberally to get the point across that they are a top quality brand.
The art of their almost minimalist look and feel is that they offer everything a discerning punter needs in a one-stop destination.
The platform offers top-of-the-range promotions, lotto action, live in-play betting, a massive bet-market and high quality mobi site.
The site’s layout is also slightly different in that the sporting codes feature horizontally just below the graphic banners on the landing page, while the menu icon is easy-to-access right across the top of the page.
Betway does not offer horse racing, which is keeping with their continental brand lay-out, but based on the popularity of the ponies, the operators could have included this in the template.
That said, apart from the nags, there is a cornucopia of amenities, lucky numbers, bet-markets, live play, sporting codes, lucky numbers (lotto) and a like-for-like quality mobi site.
Betway has a large soccer bet-market and excels in this department, always a popular staple in the diet of South African online punters. There are featured bets for other popular sports like rugby and cricket, but soccer is the sport that covers most of the action on the landing page.
Apart from a top-range mobi site the operators also offer a betting app, to go with their no-nonsense web design.
Betway South Africa Bonuses and Promotions
The team at Betway South Africa offer half a dozen promotions including a generous 125% welcome first time deposit bonus offering up to a maximum of R1000.
The second promotion is hardly found in the South African online bet market but is a highly-rated reward in that it incentivizes current clients to sign up friends. The ‘refer a friend’ bonus allows regular players a chance to win a R50 free bet if one of their contacts joins and places at least a R100 wager, rolled over three times.
The third promo on offer is another free bet (though free bets do not apply), so this is for players with money in their accounts. The ‘Pick the first teams to score in 4 matches to win’ is free weekly prediction game. If a punter predicts the first teams to score in four soccer divisions they could land a R50000 win.
If no winner is eligible during a week, the prize will roll over, adding R10000 every week up to a maximum of R100000.
The next promotion is an opportunity for random winners to win an extra R2000 for lucky bets, while there is also an opportunity for punters to win a VIP experience (terms and conditions apply).
The Lucky Numbers offers players a chance to delve into the exciting and potentially lucrative world of global lottery play. Betway give punters access to more than 100 global lotteries with daily draws and weekly pools and the chance toi win a life-changing amount is ever-present.
The site offers a few more unique bet opportunities in the form of their ‘4 to score’ running promotion whereby a punter must select the quickest team to score in four separate leagues across the world (with a chance to win R60 000).
The site also offers a variety of specialised bet games, under the ‘bet games’ link on the main directory and this provides an opportunity to play lucky 6 and 7 virtual lotto draws.
