SportingBet was established in 2007 and is run on Proprietary software. This sportsbook only accepts South African Rands as its online sports book’s currency; it is in fact a South African sports betting site.

While this is a South African sportsbook, SportingBet has made sure to not only cover South African sporting events but also many international events too. Being a South African sportsbook site, the deposit methods are tailored to South Africans, offering the easiest payment methods for those in sunny SA. Players may transfer funds to the SportingBet site via direct bank transfer, credit cards, and also cheques by post. Players may also use the South African toll-free number to place telephone wagers.

SportingBet is a safe and secure site, and it is trustworthy. There are other sports betting sites that are located in South Africa’s neighbouring countries, and players may feel that if they do not get paid out, there is no recourse for them to collect their winnings. At Sportingbet, because it is both located in South Africa, and is regulated under the law as a South African sportsbook site, there is a far greater feeling of security for local punters. The Sportingbet site is regulated and licensed by the Western Cape Gambling and Racing Board.

The minimum bet is R8 and the maximum bet changes, varying depending on the fixture. Players at SportingBet can expect up to R30,000 in monthly free bets along with a monthly prize draw and a fantastic rewards program for loyal players. You’ve got nothing to lose, visit SportingBet and place your bets.
