FirstBet is now online

20 October 2020 |

Until very recently FirstBet was a solely retail based operation. But during the recent COVID-19 lockdown, resulting in betting shops being closed, Firstbet made the decision to go online. FirstBet’s owner Banzostar picked Turfsport as their online and mobile betting solution. Therefore, Firstbet customers can now also enjoy sports betting, lucky numbers and BetGames online and on their mobiles.

FirstBet’s online betting offering

From the moment you enter the FirstBet website you will recognise the Turfsport layout that you might know from other bookies operating on this platform. Interestingly FirstBets branding looks very close to Sunbet’s branding (white, blue, gold). With picking Turfsport as their betting solution Firstbet is in good company. Playbet, Marshall World of Sports , Morris Vee and Soccershop are all trusting in the excellence of Turfsport.

FirstBet is offering you a good online betting variety including favourite sports such as rugby, cricket or golf – and of course horse racing. In addition, you have access to a variety of lotto draws and Lucky Numbers as well as BetGames. Especially BetGames see increased popularity with South African players. Currently esports betting, Live Games or live In-play betting are not part of the portfolio. Have a look at our FirstBet review to learn more about the available offering, payment options, and markets details. Whether or not you have been to one of their retail shops before now you can enjoy betting with FirstBet whenever and wherever you want. To celebrate its online launch FirstBet welcomes new players with a special offer. New players can enjoy a R30 free sign up bonus.

More retail bookmakers venture online

With the online launch of FirstBet another formerly retail only bookmaker has moved with times. We have seen Sportsbets launching their online site just recently as well and are excited to see how these two retail brands will shape the future of online betting in South Africa.
