New Betting Sites October 2022
Over the past weeks we have seen new betting sites launching in South Africa is great news as it means more choice for us players.
Let’s have a closer look at the 3 new betting sites, Lulabet, 10bet South Africa and Jabula Bets which all entered in September/October 2022.
New betting site 1: LulaBet
LulaBet launched with the promise to offer a world-class sports and games betting experience. Compared to many other casino sites in SA LulaBet operates on the superb Amelco platform, which is the basis for many other global brands such as Entain, Sportradar or Flutter. This choice in platform is definitely a great sign that LulaBet wants to be one of the best betting sites in SA.
LulaBet welcomes new players with a choice of welcome bonus. So whether you are a fan of sports betting or rather enjoy the thrill of casino games you have 2 options to choose from. LulaBet launched with a very comprehensive and entertaining betting offering. Of course there is betting on all your favourite sports but also slots, table and card live casino games, Betgames as well as Lucky Numbers. More information is also available in our detailed LulaBet review.
New betting site 2: 10bet South Africa
10bet is operated by Ocean Star Limited and a global name for sports betting and casino games excellence. The group has recently expanded into Africa and therefore 10bet has now also arrived in South Africa. Woohoo! We didn’t expect anything less from 10bet but their site and offering is just great, especially if you play on mobile. Even better they offer an app!
10bet welcomes new players with a freebie. Register your 10bet.co.za account and start with a 100% casino games bonus or 100% sports bonus. They are very confident about their offering and want you to have the best experience. If you like what you see there are many more bonuses and rewards waiting for you. Whether you rather bet on sports or enjoy the thrill of casino gameplay – 10bet has various offers and you can choose. For all details also have a look at our detailed 10bet South Africa review.
New betting site 3: Jabula Bets
“Play, bet, win” is Jabula Bets theme. Compared to many other betting sites Jabula Bets doesn’t offer real sports betting. So if you want to place bets on the EPL, rugby or cricket then this new betting site is not the right choice for you at the moment. But judging from their social media announcements this will change very soon. In the meantime you could opt-in to bet on virtual sports.
The main focus of Jabula Bets is on real casino entertainment and they therefore give you the very best games portfolio. Enjoy Habanero and Evolution slots in the “Spin City” section as well as the full range of Betgames. Or take your seat at various live casino tables and beat the dealers while playing live roulette or live blackjack. Moreover there is a wide Lucky Numbers section. If you like betting on the latter make use of the R25 free sign up bonus (code Jabula25) when joining.
For a full overview about the offering also have a look at our detailed Jabula Bets review.
Why give these sites a go?
We all love betting on the currently well-known betting sites, including Hollywoodbets, Supabets, bet.co.za or Betway. So why should you give these 3 newcomers a go? Here are our main reasons why we like to try new betting sites:
Great Welcome Offers and Service
New betting sites really like to impress and therefore usually launch with great welcome bonuses. After all they need to compete with the established bookies who also have excellent new player offers. Enjoy free spins at Lulabet, a choice of bonus at 10bet South Africa or R25 free at Jabula Bets.
So being an early adopter and trying these new betting sites as soon as possible can really pay off and bring you a great bonus.
In addition, we have tested the customer service of these new sites and the support teams are really quick and attentive. Afterall they want to provide the very best offering to players and hence an overall great experience.
When looking at LulaBet as well as Jabula Bets and especially 10bet one element is very clear. All 3 cater especially for punters who like to play on their mobile devices. The navigation and layout of all 3 newcomers is mobile-optimised and therefore you will have a seamless experience while playing on the go. While only 10bet offers a native app the normal mobile gameplay across all 3 is great.
Excellent games range
These new betting sites offer you slots entertainment from the get go. Jabula Bets has Habanero and Evolution slots, you can enjoy NetEnt and Red Tiger slots tiles on LulaBet. 10bet starts with NetEnt Red Tiger and Yggdrasil slots. Slots entertainment is seeing increased popularity in South Africa so it’s great to see these being part of the offering. Of course the sites also feature Betgames as well as Live Casino Games. Overall we have to say that the betting portfolios across all new sites is well rounded and can only get better from here.
New Betting Sites – Final Thoughts
We like seeing new operators enter the SA betting market. More licensed sites means a lot more choice for us players in a safe and regulated way. We usually recommend and bet ourselves across more than one bookie. This allows us to make use of the best odds as well as really play the games we love. Not all sites have the same game portfolio and the same bet sizes but when playing across many we can enjoy everything we want.
In addition, new betting sites usually come with an excellent offering, starting with the welcome bonus, and really like to look after players.
In conclusion, we enjoyed playing at 10bet, LulaBet as well as Jabula Bets. If they continue to keep their great first impression then they are really good contenders for a spot in our TOP 10 best betting sites.
