Detailed Pokerbet Review

We have seen many new betting sites launching over the recent month, including Betshezi, LulaBet and also Fafabet. But the entry of Pokerbet into the South African betting scene brings quite a new element. For the first time we see real poker entertainment including tournaments on a licensed site. So, Pokerbet might be a big deal and we have a look at it in more detail.

Pokerbet Offers & Promotions

New players are welcomed to Pokerbet with a 1234 Welcome Bonus. Register and then make your first deposit to receive a 100% Welcome Deposit Match bonus up to R1,234.

Valid on 1st deposit; max. bonus R1,234; players must play 1,234 hands before bonus is credited. General as well as promotional T&Cs apply, see Pokerbet website for full details.

Aside from the new player first deposit offer there are a few poker focused promotions available at Pokerbet, including the following:

  • Low/Zero Rake campaign
  • Sunday Slam R300,000 guaranteed. Buy in every Sunday from 6pm with R750+R75 for your chance to then win the guaranteed R300000 prize pool.
  • Satellite Into Sunday Slam and turn R75 into R75,000
  • Various weekly tournaments with over R1.5 million guaranteed.
  • New Year Tournament on 15 January 2023 with R1 million guaranteed


  • Varied poker offering
  • Tournaments with big guaranteed prize pools
  • Satellites into tournaments
  • Good sports book


  • No slots or live casino games entertainment
  • Limited payment options
  • Limited support hours

Betting Markets & Sports

Pokerbet has a good sports betting offering and you will find all your favourite markets, including the following:

  • Soccer
  • Basketball
  • Rugby
  • Cricket
  • Volleyball
  • Tennis
  • Handball
  • Surfing
  • Sailing
  • Darts
  • Boxing
  • Snooker
  • Golf
  • Formula 1
  • FloorballCycling
  • MMA

As you can see aside from the usual sports you also have some exotic ones to bet on. Bets can be placed both pre-match as well as live in-play. Pokerbet is operating on the Betconstruct platform which is also used by for example Gbets. Therefore you also have a good statistics section as well as live calendar to never miss a sports event. Furthermore you have a live multiview tab that you can customise for yourself and then keep track of the events you want to bet on live.


As part of the sports offering there is also E-Sports. Bet on the following:

  • Call of Duty
  • Counter Strike: GO
  • Dota 2
  • King of Glory
  • League of Legends
  • Rainbow Six
  • Star Craft 2
  • Warcraft III
  • Valorant

Lucky Numbers & Casino Games

Pokerbet is focussing purely on online Poker as well as sports. Therefore, for the moment you can’t bet on lucky numbers. Moreover, there are no casino games or slots. So if poker is not quite for you then you might rather want to have a look at some other sites that have a varied portfolio of sports, lucky numbers as well as games. That is to say, the widest choice is available at Supabets, HollywoodBets or Betway.

Pokerbet Payment Options

To deposit you can choose either Ozow Instant EFT , Paygate (Visa or Mastercard) or Direct Deposit. Aside from Direct Deposit where a minimum deposit of R50,000 is required you can start depositing from as little as R1. While many players in South Africa like to deposit with vouchers this is currently not possible at Pokerbet. The withdrawal of winnings is currently only possible via EFT. The minimum withdrawal is R100 with a maximum amount of R10 million.

Contact & Support

You can get in touch with the friendly and professional Pokerbet team between 08:00-17:00 every day via the following ways:

  • Email: support@pokerbet.co.za
  • Phone: 060 070 2807
  • Live Chat on site

Pokerbet Review – Final Words

Pokerbet has just entered the SA betting scene and we can already see that it might be a big deal for poker fans. It’s the first licensed betting site that offers a wide poker portfolio. PokerBet is operated by Novamore (Pty) Ltd and has a license by the Northern Cape Gambling Board similar to Scorebet as well as Tic Tac Bets.

That is to say, Pokerbet is a great site if you like to play poker online and mobile alongside some sports betting. If you are after casino games entertainment or lotto betting then for the moment this site will not give you the entertainment you are looking for.

As with all new sites we are sure that Pokerbet’s portfolio will overall expand over time.
