SpotOnBets Detailed Review
Update: sadly SpotOnBets closed its doors in 2022 and is no longer an option. To find an alternative site please have a look at our best betting sites in South Africa overview.
SpotOnBets has been in the making for quite some time but finally launched in December 2020. This brand-new betting site operates on the world-class SB Tech platform which is also used by the likes of bet.co.za among others.
Spoton Bets is licensed by the Western Cape Gambling and Racing Board and therefore fully trustworthy. This bookmaker wants to bring ‘the fun and excitement back into sports and betting’ for South African punters. We have tested the website and the offering in detail and hope you find the Spotonbets review helpful.
SpotOnBets Offers & Promotions
Spotonbets welcomes new customers with 2 free sign up bet bonuses. New players can choose between a R15 Sign Up Bet on Evolution Live Games or a R25 Free Sports Bet. This makes Spotonbet the only licensed betting site at the moment to offer a free bonus on live games straight after registration. Hence, if you like Evolutions Live Casino Games this one is for you.
In addition, SpotOnBets rewards you with a 1st deposit welcome bonus of 100% up to R3000. This is compared to other bookmakers a fairly generous offer. The bonus comes with a reasonable 5x wagering requirement.
Free R15: valid 72 hours on Evo Live Games. Free R25: valid 72 hours on sports. 100% Bonus: valid on sports; wagering 6x; odds of 1.5 or more; no system bets or multi bets; promotional and general T&Cs apply.

Betting Markets & Sports
Spotonbets features all the sports you love (and expect). This includes Soccer, Cricket and Rugby as well as golf, handball, MMA, Snooker & Pool as well as esports.
Overall Spoton Bets has a diverse offering which will make nearly all punters happy. We say nearly, because if you are into horse racing then this bookmaker is not for you. Betting on horses is not available which seems to be the new norm these days.
When looking at the odds then we found that they are quite competitive and right on par with Sportingbet and Betway. For soccer they are not as good as Playabets who is currently by far the leader for soccer betting online.
Bets start at R2 which is higher than the usual standard minimum bet of R1. The higher minimum bet goes along with great maximum payouts of up to R1 million.
Spotonbets is a good choice for esports punters. League of Legends, Starcraft2, CS;GO and more is on offer. You will find the Esports section nicely categorised, giving easy access to a Daily Match List as well as the Top Leagues.
Live Betting & Live Streaming
Live Betting is available on a variety of sports such as basketball , table tennis and obviously soccer. With live in-play you can get into the betting action at any time.
Lotto, Lucky Numbers & Games
Currently Lucky Numbers are not available at Spotbets. This is slightly disappointing and we believe numbers games are needed to appeal to a wider SA audience.
But Betgames are available on the site. At the moment the games portfolio covers 8 out of 12 available Betgames. Bet on Baccarat, 6+ Poker, Andar Bahar and the classic wheel are missing but all 3 Lucky games as well as popular other titles are available.
Moreover, you have access to the Live Casino Games by Evolution, the market leader in live casino game entertainment. Therefore you can enjoy roulette, blackjack, baccarat and game show titles live 24/7. Play Cash or Crash, Crazy Time, or the Lightning games and make use of your R15 free sign up bet.
The lack of lucky numbers entertainment as well as no sign of slots is for us definitely a drawback. Spotonbet has improved a lot over recent months and we hope that similar to adding more payment methods there will be a wider betting range available soon.
Payment Options at SpotOnBets
For deposits you can currently use EFT as well as vouchers and mobile payments such as Zapper and CallPay. Spoton Bets has expanded their banking options recently and is now spot on for SA punters banking needs.

SpotOnBets – Final Words
As most new betting sites SpotOnBets is very user-friendly. The clear layout, fast page load speed and easy navigation make betting, especially on mobile devices, a bliss. Hence whether you are playing at home from your desktop or on the go from you mobile you will be in good hand with Spotonbets. This bookmaker makes betting easy from the start with a very quick and easy registration as well as FICA process. Some new recently launched bookmakers have introduced a multi-step registration which is luckily not the case with Spoton Bets.
Having 2 free sign-up bonuses to choose from is furthermore great for new players. Especially the R15 free games bonus is setting Spot On Bets apart from other SA betting sites. Moreover, the R3000 1st deposit welcome bonus is fairly generous. There are bigger bonuses around which often come with higher wagering requirements. Spotonbets has a 6x wagering on the initial bonus which is reasonable.
The range of markets and odds are competitive as well as comparable to the likes of Betway and others.
Our current drawbacks are with the lack of games (no lucky numbers or slot games). But a lot of other things have improved over the past months. Therefore, we are sure that this betting site will grow from strength to strength over the coming months.
