EaziBet is one of the upcoming online sports betting sites in South Africa and after launching in the country some 15 months ago they will look to continue their African success enjoyed throughout the continent.
The Eazibet team have tried to copy their franchise model, so successful in Kenya and offer one of the better options in South Africa.
The operators have completely revamped their look and feel, and have opted for a cleaner, less bright landing page experience – gone are the over-bright predominantly green colours and the web and mobi site have gone for a more subdued white background.
This simple change has given the site an instantly more accessible and professional look and feel.
The site prides themselves on their variety and quality of their promotions and are offering a whopping seven giveaways, copying a model that has seen much success abroad.
Eazibet South Africa offers a large bet-market despite a limited number of sporting codes and are mostly a football dominated site – even though fringe sports like cycling and darts are seemingly well-backed.
The online bet community in South Africa is dominated by around five sites and EaziBet is trying to reach that level, even though getting a brand name is a long term venture.
Running down the left hand flank is the various sporting codes and each one also shows data on the amount of current bet-play at any given time. The data shows the site is gaining in numbers but compared to the major players they are still quite away off.
The site offers live in-play betting and this is proving popular and despite the relatively small numbers playing the feature there is scope for growth based on their quality of this feature. The bet markets in live play is large and offers punters a good overall experience ion this key factor.
The site offers a lottery service with draws taking place daily, and with some of the world’s biggest lotto action this is another area EaziBet are looking to build clientele.
There are sites in SA that offer a bigger range of lottery play but EaziBet does bring about 50 daily draws from around the globe.
The site uses the fixed odds system meaning a punter does not physically buy a ticket into the Russian lottery draw for example, but rather places a stake on the numbers drawn and picks up odds from the bookmaker. This is common practice in the community and substantial wins can be earned despite a maximum cap on overall size of the prize.
The main landing page is easy on the eye with regard to seeing all the relevant information off the bat, with a well-covered menu directory, which takes the punter to the various links – such as promotions.
Eazibet Bonuses and Promotions
The actual promos on offer are often what attract new players to a platform, and keep existing clients on the books and EaziBet has always been a firm believer in this exercise.
The current promotions are an indication of their marketing strategy.
The offer a one of the largest first time deposit rewards with a 150% welcome bonus, though their maximum pay-out is only R600.
The second promotion that often impresses loyal customers is the ‘refer a friend’ promo and an existing client will get a max R150 reward if the new bettor deposits and turns over the same amount.
The next promo is a price boost, accumulator reward with the punter standing a chance to win an extra 30% of original stake.
There are a few social media random draw competitions as well as a money back loyalty programme, with the punter needing to place a bet every day of a calendar week to qualify for an R100 top-up.
The site has a link to the day’s top betting events on their menu and this shows off the more well-known contests – and covers a range of sports like cricket, rugby and football.
The site has a simple registration process and a new punter must click on the ‘register’ icon and follow the prompts, including the obligatory and statutory Fica compliance.
The site uses four main banking accounts for players to deposit and with namely, Absa, FNB, Standard Bank and Nedbank.
They also offer a wide variety of deposit options such as Instant EFT, 1 voucher, Shoprite Checkers outlets, Pick n Pay outlets, Spar and Payfast.
The EaziBet operation offers one of the largest depositing and withdrawing systems among all online bet sites in the country and is one of the most convenient players in the market in this regard. This can only bode well for the future of this ambitious, growing platform.
