Placing a bet is fun and when you win real cash it is even better. Sports betting is 100% legal in South Africa and there are loads of betting companies for you to sign up with. But, you need to make sure you are placing bets at a licensed and regulated betting brand that will protect you and offer fair gambling odds. One of the main benefits of using a regulated betting brand is that you will be offered safe and secure banking options.
When you fund your betting account it needs to be three things, quick, convenient and safe.
- Quick – you want the funds in your account straightaway so you can start placing bets
- Convenient – you don’t want the hassle of setting up new accounts with different ebanking options
- Safe – you want to know that your personal and financial information is protected
