Bets724 is a fairly new online sportsbook launched in 2020. This online sports betting platform has become a sensation amongst players based in South Africa despite the fact that it does not support South African Rands at this time. 

Bets724 offers South African players some unique features and advantages which we believe is the reason for its popularity all over the world, and particularly in South Africa. For starters, Bets724 is not just an online sportsbook, but it also has a full-fledged online casino where you can play casino games like slots, table games, progressive jackpots and even plays live dealer casino games. 

Secondly, the Bets724 website is miles ahead of its competition in terms of the user experience it delivers. The website makes placing a bet a breeze. Even banking has been simplified and made hassle-free without compromising on security. 

Another reason why Bets724 is considered one of the best sportsbooks in SA is because of the sports markets they cover and the extent to which they cover it. Some of the most popular sports in SA are Rugby, Cricket, Tennis, Golf and Soccer. All of these sports markets are extensively covered and even supported for live, in-play betting. The various bet types, the odds offered and everything else favours the bettor and it is no wonder players from SA seem to take to this sportsbook.

The minimum deposit at Bets724

The minimum deposit you can make may vary depending on which banking method you choose to use. The banking methods available for your account will also depend on your currency of choice and your location. For all intents and purposes, we can consider the minimum deposit allowed to be CAD25 since this is the minimum deposit amount allowed for most of the supported banking methods, be it credit cards, eWallets, etc. 

How to place your first bet

The main objective at Bets724 is of course to place a wager on a particular sporting event. This process has been standardized and is pretty simple to carry out. It mimics the process that takes place in a land based sporting parlor. In order to place a bet, you have the concept of a bet slip. The bet slip is empty when you don’t have any bets added to it. You can add one or more bets to the bet slip and confirm the entire bet slip. Before you are able to place a real money bet, you should have registered an account and also ensure that you have sufficient funds in your Bets724 account to support the bet you are going to place. 

In order to place a bet, you can simply follow the below instructions. 

  • Go to the Bets724 website, enter your email address and password and login to your account. 
  • Select the Sports Betting tab from the menu on the tab since you want to place a sports bet. 
  • Now you choose the sport that you are interested in betting on, popular sports such as Football, Basketball, Tennis, etc. are listed at the top. However, if you want to bet on some other sport, you will see all sports are listed in a vertical menu on the left-hand side – select your sport of choice. 
  • Once selected, it is time to specify which competition, league or cup within the sport you are interested in (for example, if you choose soccer as the sport, you could then choose the English Premier League).
  • Proceed to select the specific match or event within that competition. (for example, if you have chosen English Premier League, you could then choose Liverpool vs Southampton).
  • Now you will see the various bets available for the match or event that you have selected. The number will represent the odds offered for each bet. 
  • Click on the odds for the bet you are interested in to add the bet to your bet slip. 
  • Now enter the stake amount you want to take for this bet in the bet slip. Once done, the potential win amount is calculated and displayed automatically. 
  • You can repeat the process to add another bet in the same way or you can proceed with just one bet.
  • Once you have added your desired bets to the bet slip, confirm that all the details are correct and click on the ‘Place Bet’ tab.
  • You will see that your balance amount will be reduced by the total bet amount of the bet slip.
  • The bet is now placed. 

Site Navigation and Usability

The Bets724 website has been given a lot of thought, which is evident from its design and layout. The information architecture is practical and makes the entire website very user friendly. Even if you aren’t a particularly tech-savvy person, you will find it relatively easy to carry out various operations on the bets724 website. Everything works is an orderly, step-by-step manner which boosts usability and inspires confidence even in a novice user. Whether you want to sign up, make a deposit, request a withdrawal or place a bet on a particular sporting event, you will find the processes to be seamless, practical, intuitive and almost self-explanatory. 

Even though there are literally thousands of different possible bets you can place, you do not get overwhelmed because of the way in which the sports, competitions and bet types have been categorized. They appear in a granular, layer by layer manner which makes it surprisingly easy for you to find the sporting event and bet of your choice in just a matter of seconds. 

There are plenty of menus laid out across the top, down the sides and also in the footer section which allows for you to find various sections of the website with just a click. Should you have any trouble finding something, the live chat icon is always on the bottom left-hand corner and you can get help in seconds. 

We wish some of the other sportsbooks would take a page out Bets724 sportsbook when it comes to user experience, ease of use and website navigation elements. 

Bets724 on Mobile

Currently, Bets724 does not have an official mobile app published on either the Google Play Store or the iTunes App Store. However, the Bets724 website is a mobile friendly platform which is optimized for mobile use right from when it was initially developed and launched. This is good news for players who are often on the move and want to place bets even when they are away from their desktops. 

You can simply use the browser application on your mobile, such as Google Chrome or Safari, visit the Bets724 website, login to your account and place your bet. Please note that you can use the same username and password for both mobile and PC platforms. You may use smartphones or tablet devices to play on Bets724. 

The mobile website is similar to the PC website in terms of the colours, fonts and overall appearance of the portal and dashboard. The differences lie in the way that the menus, icons, betting options, and banners are displayed. Since mobile screens are smaller than PC screens, the mobile version of the website tends to be more vertically oriented and narrow in width. This way, users can scroll up and down through the mobile website with just one finger and will not have to scroll from left to right or right to left. 

The Bets724 mobile platform has a special menu at the bottom which is a sticky menu. This menu stays at the bottom no matter how far up or down you scroll. The menu offers some key selections which facilitate easy access and navigation to the main sections of the platform. These selections are casino, live casino, a place bet icon, live betting and support. The left-hand side menu has been collapsed in the mobile platform and can be expanded on demand by simply tapping on the hamburger menu icon at the top left – hand corner of the website. 

Overall, the mobile platform of Bets724 does not disappoint. Much like its PC counterpart, the mobile website is user friendly and makes tasks such as placing a bet, making a deposit, registering an account, etc., a walk in the park.
