Detailed Bettabets Review

Bettabets has a very clear mission: this SA bookmaker wants to be the Number 1 bookie for retail and online gaming. When visiting the site for the first time you will see the superior brand experience with fun images and a very enticing black & yellow design.

Bettabets claims to be ‘Made for Winners’. So let’s have a closer look if Bettabets can stand up to its promise and really offer an exciting, winning betting experience.

Bettabets Offers & Promotions

Bettabets doesn’t have a standard new player sign-up or welcome bonus and also doesn’t feature any promotions on site. This is at first sight disappointing.

But all new and exisiting players can access the Bettabets Preditcor Games which are free to play. The Free2Play Predictor Games (BPG) contain selected weekly games that are free to participate in and are set up as leaderboard competitions. Various cash prizes are waiting to be won. More information on how to join in and the up-to-date Free2Play Leaderboards are available on site.

Betting Markets & Sports

Bettabets is passionate about sports and claims to be the soccer specialist. Soccer is currently the only market available online. As the site is still in beta we expect this to change over time as only soccer betting is really limited.

Bettabets features ‘Book a Bet’ which is not an online betting option but allows you to book a bet which you then finalise instore.


Bettabets has currently no ESports available online. If you are looking for a bookie for e-sports betting have a look at our esports section.

Live Betting & Live Streaming

Bets can be placed at Bettabets online pre-match and also live in game. Even so you might have missed the kick-off of your favourite game you therefore still have the chance to get into the action.

Live Streaming is not an option at the moment.

Lotto & Lucky Numbers

Bettabets offers you lucky numbers and lotto betting on a variety of markets. These include South African lotteries (including SA Lotto and Powerball) as well a the well-known international lotteries from the UK, Greece, Russia, France as well as the US. Place your bets on the UK 49s, Russia GoSloto, the Greece Powerball or even the USA Megamillions and benefit from big lotto jackpots There surely is a lotto draw to participate in.


This bookie is not yet a great choice for players who prefer to bet on games. The site features Betgames but currently only has the 3 lucky Betgames (Lucky 5, Lucky 6 and Lucky 7) available. This is not great compared to other betting sites such as Purebet or Hollywoodbets who give player the full Betgames experience. We are also missing any other games, such as live games, virtuals or instant games. Sites like Supabets are leading the way and are a much better choice at the moment for these games.

Payment Options

Bettabets offers you most standard payment methods for withdrawal, including credit card, vouchers, Direct EFT and Instant EFT. Before you withdraw you need to FICA you account. The minimium withdrawal value for EFT is R10.

Bettabets – Final Words

Bettabets is licensed by Mpumalanga Gaming Board and therefore fully licensed and trustworthy. This bookmaker has over 20 physical stores in South Africa (Gauteng, Mpumalanga, Limpopo, Orange Free State and Western Cape) and has now moved online. The site is currently still in beta so we are sure we will see some changes to the currently still limited online offer over the coming weeks and wil update our review then accordingly.

Registering an account is very straightforward and requires the standard details such as Email, Name, Cellphone number and ID number. After you have registered you should FICA your account to complete the verification process. Once you have a verified account you can login and start betting.

Bettabets doesn’t have a dedicated app and you can hence start playing without downloading any software and just start betting from your browser. Navigation and gameplay is good on all mobile devices and also on desktop.

Betta Bets is powered by Chalkline and is therefore based on advanced technology that is also trusted by Hollywood Bets for supply Hollywoodbets Predictor Games.
