Play.co.za – Final Words

Play.co.za is a good looking and modern site that has a gaming and casino feel to it. The registration process takes a bit longer however once that is done you are good to go. Currently there are no slot games available to play however we are sure this is not far behind and will be added shortly. They have some lucrative promos for a start and the welcome offers are available as soon as you activate your account.

With a slogan like this, “Come Play With Us”, punters will be intrigued for sure. For similar online betting sites that are similar in look & feel check out Lulabet or even Bet.co.za for some more variety, especially on the slots front.

There are quite a few new bookies on the block and we have done detailed reviews on them to keep you informed on what is happening out there. Have a look at our review on Betshezi or Fafabet as well as or our article covering all these new bookies – New SA Betting Sites November 2022.
