Update: since 7 March 2022 Playabets has discontinued its app to fully concentrate on its mobile website development. Focusing on its mobile version is something we have for example also seen by Hollywoodbets. While the Playabets app was great, their mobile website is fabulous as well.
Playabets is one of the best bookmakers in South Africa, offering you betting entertainment online, mobile and in retail betting shops. While the current site is very mobile friendly Playabets wanted to make mobile betting even better and therefore offers you a native app. In this article we guide you through the download of the Playabets app and also explain how to get it for your Android and iOS device.
How to download the Playabets App
Step 1: Get your Playabets player account
The starting point to download the Playabets apk is a valid Playabets player account. If you are already having one then you can jump to Step 2 and start installing the apk. If you are not a loyal Playa yet, you firstly need to open your Playa Bets account.
Getting an account is very easy and only takes a few minutes. We have covered everything you need to know also in our Playabets account guide.
Right after registration you will be rewarded with a R10 lucky numbers free bet as part of the Playabets new player offer.
Step 2: Download and install the Playabets app
Playabets caters for all players and has therefore a native app for both Android and iOS. So dependant on which mobile device you have and hence which mobile operating system you use, the process to download the Playabets apk slightly differs.
Download the Android app
Google is not allowing any betting apps in its Google Play Store. Therefore, if you have an Android device, you can’t just go the Play Store to download the Playabets Android apk.
Hence, go to playabets.co.za on your mobile and follow the instructions to download the application from there.
Before downloading you have to adjust your device settings to allow unknown apps ( Settings -> Security -> Device Administration -> Allow Unknown Sources). Afterwards download the apk and install it. From then on you can login to the app and conveniently bet in it.
Download the iOS app
Downloading the Playabets on Apple devices such as iPhone or iPad is slightly easier. Simply go to the App Store and search for Playabets. You can then directly download the app from the store.
Why download the app?
Nearly all of the best betting sites are these days optimised for mobile betting so an app is not necessary mandatory for a great experience. Nevertheless, a good app can make betting that tiny bit easier and therefore enhance your enjoyment. For example, you can opt in for push notifications and hence stay easily up-to-date with fixtures, odds and latest promotions. Moreover, payments (both deposits and withdrawals) are usually easier and faster to do. Lastly, you can better customise your experience.
What can you bet on in the Playabets app?
The Playabets app has everything you also have on mobile web but in a slightly more optimised way for your specific device. Of course you can bet on:
- Sports (pre-match and live)
- Lucky numbers
- Live Casino Games by Evolution
- Virtual Games such as Spin & Win and Keno
Moreover, all Playabets promotions are available in app. From the new player welcome offer to cashback as well as VIP rewards.
So get started and register your Playabets account here. Then download the app for your device (either iOS or Android) and enjoy betting fun pure. “All bets are on” is Playabets theme and they live by it.
Unfortunately, Playabets has discontinued its app in March 2022 to fully focus on its mobile betting solution. Therefore, you can no longer download or bet via the app. Please go to playabets.co.za instead on your phone and place your bets on mobile web.
In March 2022 Playabets has discontinued its app. Therefore, your downloaded app does no longer work. To continue betting with Playa Bets please go to their excellent mobile site at playabets.co.za.
