Playbet is an online South African-based bookmaker founded in 2011, offering a variety of sports betting options on soccer, rugby, cricket, boxing, tennis, basketball and much more. The predominantly red and black colours on the website give it a vibrant look and feel. The main tabs are at the top of the page and Quick Links and Bet By Sport are on the left side of the page, making it easy to navigate various betting options such as sports, Lotto and Lucky Numbers.
Playbet’s Live In Play offering is easily found on the homepage making it easy to see which games are currently playing. To view all upcoming fixtures, simply tap the sport type you would like to view in the left-hand side under Bet By Sport.
You can also navigate to the results page to view outcomes of events that have recently concluded. You’re also able to download a soccer fixture list with upcoming matches and odds from your favourite soccer leagues around the world.
Playbet also offers entertaining verticals such as:
- Lucky Numbers
- Betgames Lotto
- Betgames Lotto Extended
These are all great verticals for anyone who may be looking for something else to enjoy apart from sports betting.
Playbet bonus and promotions
Playbet offers attractive promotions such as a R50 bonus for all players who successfully FICA their account. All promotions and offers can be viewed under the Promotions tab under the Quick Links category. One surprising feature is their high stake limit of up to R20,000 on your first bet, this is significantly more than many bookmakers offer for new punters and they are not willing to take the risk early on.
Playbet does not seem to offer a first deposit bonus like other bookmakers as yet, however, it may be something they will look to add to attract more players to their site.
