New Betting Sites October 2020
Good news for all South African bettors! In October 2020 we have seen a few new online betting sites launching. Therefore, we now have more options to place our bets online!
The two big new entries are Palace Bet and Millionaires Gaming Sports Club which are both looking very promising.
Palace Bet is the first online and mobile betting site by the well-known Peermont Hotel, Gaming and Resorts. Partnering with Draftkings this new betting site operates on an innovative sports betting platform. New players are welcomed to Palace Bet with a 100% deposit match bonus up to R1000 and can enjoy a great betting offering on sports, lucky numbers as well as live and Betgames. For further information about the overall betting experience have a look at our detailed Palace Bet review.
The second new betting site is Millionaires Gaming Sport Betting, part of Millionaires Gaming Africa. The company is one of Africa’s leading casino operators and has just ventured into South Africa. The wealth of experience about what casual bettors and experienced punters want has been translated well into this new online betting site. The layout is very classy and user-friendly. Millionaires Gaming Sports Betting offers new players up to R3000 in welcome bonuses and so much more. We have put the overall offering to the test and have reviewed Millionaires Gaming Sport Betting in detail.
Main reasons to give new betting sites a go
We all place a lot of our bets these days on the go on our mobile devices. New online betting sites come usually with a very modern and user-friendly layout that is especially optimised for mobile betting. While most sites do not invest in a native mobile app the mobile site experience usually makes up for it. This means that you will have a fantastic betting entertainment across all mobile devices, from Android smartphones to iOS devices.
Fantastic new games content
New betting sites usually impress with a more varied betting offering. With the COVID-pandemic sports betting options were very limited and therefore bettors have discovered alternative content. Mainly Betgames and the Live Games by Evolution kept us entertained while no sports was on.
These games are fast paced and offer a thrilling live gameplay with additional fixed bet options. As they play 24/7/365 there is always an opportunity to place a winning bet while having fun with the live dealers. Aside from live instant win games, virtuals and esports are seeing increased popularity and new betting sites are generally the first to offer these. The virtual games offering covers great racing and sports games as well as numbers and lottery games. Popular titles such as Spin & Win or Keno by Golden Race are usually available.
Great welcome offer and service
More and more online betting sites to choose from means more competition between bookmakers. This results in very attractive offers for us punters. Therefore, being one of the early players on a new betting site can pay off as welcome offers are usually very attractive and you are treated with excellence. The first impression counts, and bad reviews are a killer for a new site.
While we might all have our favourite bookie it is worth shopping around and comparing events and odds. Adding new online betting sites to your portfolio of bookies is a great strategy for the best returns.
We liked playing at Palace Bet and Millionaires Gaming Sport Betting and think these new betting sites have the potential to become over time one of the best betting sites in South Africa. Over the next few months we expect additional new sportsbooks to enter the South African market. So make sure you have a look at our bookmakers listings regulary to stay up to date.
