Casino Games

4.2/5

The games at Bet.co.za can be divided into four categories. There are the Bet Vegas games, Bet Games, Bet Spins and Lucky Numbers. These are all stocked with fantastic titles that are extremely fun to play and can give gamers endless hours of joy.

However, you should know that there are no table games or video poker games at Bet.co.za.

Slots:

The slots at Bet.co.za are provided by developers such as Red Tiger and NetEnt. There are over 90 slots, which is not a massive range of games, but these are all carefully picked by the casino for their playability. Games such as Gonzo’s Quest Megaways, Cash Volt, Rainbow Jackpots Power lines, and Starburst are some of their biggest hits.

Unfortunately, there are no progressive jackpot slots, which is quite a sore omission.

BetGames:

BetGames is a popular platform amongst South African online casinos. These are basically live games that are broadcast 24/7 and there are many types of games to pick from. You can check out Lucky Numbers, Poker, Baccarat, War of Bets, Wheel of Fortune and more.

Live Games:

There are over 30 live dealer games at Bet.co.za and they are all supplied by Evolution. Evolution is one of the top live dealer game developers, creating all sorts of fantastic casino games that are brought in HD. Bet.co.za offers players plenty of picks, from classic casino games such as Blackjack and Roulette to games such as Mega Ball, Crazy Time, Dreamcatcher and Fan Tan.

Lucky Numbers:

If you are into lotteries, then Bet.co.za is the place for you. It covers over 160 Lucky Numbers games from around the world, and the action is non-stop. There are games running all the time and you can simply jump into anyone that tickles your fancy.

Sports Betting

4.5/5

The sportsbook is extensive and has bets on various sports and events from around the world. There are markets for soccer, tennis, rugby union, cricket, basketball, American football, and horse racing, amongst others. The inclusion of horse racing is important to mention as not all sportsbooks offer horse racing bets – and there is a massive market for it. It includes horse races from the UK, Ireland, the US, and Japan as well as other international events. The betting markets on sports such as soccer, tennis or basketball are extremely large, with standard bets such as moneylines, totals and handicaps, as well as much more.

It is good to see there are plenty of rugby and cricket betting markets too, as these are important for a South African market. When you want to place a bet, on the right side of the screen they will be added to your bet slip. This bet slip is quite advanced, as you can build parlays, system bets and even full-cover bets (or round robins for sports). This gives punters masses of opportunities.

Licensing and Regulation

5.0/5

Betcoza Online is a South African company that operates out of Cape Town. It is a fully licensed business that is regulated by the Western Cape Gambling & Racing Board. This licence guarantees that Bet.co.za is a legitimate casino and sportsbook. Unfortunately, though, the licence only permits South Africans to play at the casino. To register you will need to submit an official ZA ID card or document, as well as proof of residence in South Africa.

Payment Options

3.9/5

There are a number of payment options at Bet.co.za. You can play using South African Rand, and the minimum bet is R1 for any sports bets – which will suit punters with smaller budgets. To make a deposit, you can use one of the following methods:

  • MasterCard
  • VISA
  • Masterpass
  • SID Instant EFT
  • OTT Voucher
  • Zapper
  • OZOW

The payment options will suit South African players as they are compatible with different South African banks. If you are unsure about which method to use, you can always contact Bet.co.za and ask them which service can be used with your bank.

Customer Support

4.3/5

Bet.co.za has a large FAQ section where you can find lots of useful information on how to register, payment options and more. There are also descriptions at the bottom of each game-category lobby, which will help you understand how the games work and what you should look out for.

If you want to get in contact with the customer support team, you can open the live chat and within minutes an agent should address your concerns. Bet.co.za also has a prominent social media presence, and you can reach out to them via Messenger or Twitter. In addition to these, you can contact Bet.co.za by phone or email.

Mobile Availability

4.5/5

After the app was discontinued, Bet.co.za relaunched its popular mobile app in 2021. The app can be downloaded from the Play Store or Apple Store, and it is easy to set up. Once you register your account on the app, you can open the casino and sportsbook with one tap on your phone or tablet. It has a sleek design and is largely intuitive. If you register at Bet.co.za the app comes very highly recommended.

If for whatever reason you do not want the app then do not worry, you can still open the mobile-friendly website on your smartphone or tablet. It will run just as smoothly as if you had opened it on your desktop, with all the games, features and the rest.

Summary

4.4/5

If you decide to pick Bet.co.za as your next casino/sportsbook then you are in for a real treat. The BetGames, Live Games and slots are all top-quality and are highly popular amongst players. The sportsbook is top-range too. It not only supplies all the standard bets you would expect but also gives you the chance to form complex betting arrangements with the advanced bet slip. The addition of horse racing (UK & international) will please many punters.

However, it is important to note that the range of casino games is not the largest out there. With over 90 slots, it will probably not suit players who are used to having a choice from thousands.

If you are happy with the slots  and table game collection and do not mind no jackpots, then you will find pretty much everything else at Bet.co.za.
