Vegas Bets Detailed Review
While we had a closer look at BetVegas by Bet.co.za we stumbled across Vegas Bets. Somehow we had missed this South African sports betting and lucky numbers website and we haven’t placed bets there before. But it is never to late so we opened an account at Vegas Bets online and tested the site in detail for our review.
Vegas Bets is a completely legal betting site and holds a license by the Western Cape Gambling and Racing Board. It is powered by the renown Turfsport platform which is also used by other betting sites such as GG Gaming or Yes Play. Therefore, the layout and navigation of Vegas Bets will be very familiar to you.

Betting Markets & Sports
Vegas Bet has a good variety of sports. The following sports are available:

Vegas Bets has a stong focus on soccer and horse racing. We like that they still offer horse racing while many other bookmakers don’t. The odd are quite competetive and you surely will find an event to bet on. Aside from fixed odds betting you will also find tote and exotic betting. Teh alter
Esports betting is currently not offered on Vegas Bets. If you want to bet on Esports have a look at our recommended e-sports online betting sites.
Live Betting & Live Streaming
Currently only pre-match betting and no live in-play betting options are available. If you are looking for a bookmaker that offers you live betting we recommend Gbets or Betway.

Vegas Bets – Final Words
Vegas Bets is overall a good site to play on. With competitive odds and a good betting variety it is definitely a site we can recommend if you are just looking for the basics.
The Vegas Bets logo reminds you very much about Las Vegas and you can feel the excitement of walking down the strip in Las Vegas at a few points across the site. Colourwise the site reminded us very much of BetOlimp.
Sign up is very straightforward. Just enter your personal information and a password and you are registered. The overall site navigation and betting funtionality is also very easy and works across all devices. Therefore, you can login and play on desktop, laptop as well as mobile phones and tablet.
While Vegas Bets has a great Betgames and lucky numbers offering we are missing Live Casino Games, live betting and regular promotions. We hope there will be more coming up in the future.
