More and more punters in South Africa bet these days on their mobile devices. Mobile betting is more and more the standard and SA bookmakers need to adapt.
Therefore, a variety of the best betting sites in South Africa enhance your mobile betting experience and offer you the option to gamble via an app. In most cases a dedicated app for both Android and iOS can be downloaded in the respective app store.
Why Bet via an app?
Here are a few reason why we like to bet on sports and games via an app:
- Easy access, with just one click at the app you can start playing.
- Apps usually use less data and load faster for an even better and more entertaining experience.
- Very user-friendly! Apps are especially developed for placing bets on the go and therefore offer the best while easiest access possible. That comes in especially handy when you like to place live bets.
- Some games such as Gonzo’s Treasure Hunt are especially designed for mobile devices. Playing these games in-app will enhance your experience.
- Notifications about fixtures and also special promotions.

The below table gives you an overview about the best betting apps for SA players. The app is usually available for both Android and iOS.
To download the Android app or iOS app visit the Play or Apple Store directly on your phone.
For our ranking we compared the apps in detail by considering the following criteria:
- Ease of use: Placing bets via an app should be convenient and user-friendly. Therefore, a straightforward navigation and easy access to your favourite sports betting markets and games is mandatory, combined with a quick way to place your bets.
- Security and Safety: When betting on a bookmakers’ app safety and security are mayor factos to consider before downloading. All listed bookies are fully licensed in South Africa. Hence they provide you with a safe and reliable betting entertainment. Via the app you should have a quick but safe access to your account while ensuring your personal details are secured. This obviously also goes for banking.
- Access to live chat and support via the app so help is always on hand when needed.
- Bonuses and rewards: when testing we didn’t get any special offers via the app but all bonuses and promotions offered on the mobile or desktop site were available. This includes possible free sign up offers as well as the new player welcome bonuses.
Some bookmakers do not currently have a dedicated mobile sports betting app but in comparison quite good mobile sites. One of them is Hollywood Bets whose revamped mobi website is really good. Similar can be said about World Sport Betting or brand new betting site Pure Bet.
Most of the best betting sites in SA offer you a dedicated mobile app which you can download onto your phone. An app allows you easy access and the best mobile betting experience. If a bookmaker doesn’t have an app they usually have a mobisite. A mobisite is essentially a simplified version of the standard desktop website but with mobile friendly navigation.
In 2019 bet.co.a has discontinued its mobile app and therefore there is no longer an app available. The mobisite is really good and can be accessed here.
Betway is one of the best betting sites worldwide. They have a dedicated team only for their app development. Therefore, if you are looking for a reliable betting entertainment on mobile we recommend the Betway app.
