Betway sports now in South Africa


Betway’s African rollout still shows no signs of slowing, and the British sports betting giant has recently added South Africa to their burgeoning portfolio.

When it comes to releasing their much-loved betting app in new territories, Betway sits comfortably at the top of the table. The speed at which they have opened up ‘shop’ in Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria and now South Africa (as well as others) shows that providing the infrastructure is in place and they can deliver premium sports betting within a matter of days.

There are numerous reasons for this, and why it is great news for SA sports fans who like a wager or two while enjoying their matches.

Betway offer a universally top quality product

BetWay online sports betting entertainment takes pride in offering a nearly identical user experience regardless of where their customers are based. South Africans can enjoy the exact same range of betting options as those in Europe or elsewhere in Africa. All that differs are currency and sometimes minimum wagering requirements (which are typically lower in Africa). Otherwise, the app offers a truly top-tier gambling experience.

Want to place an in-match bet despite being a continent away from where the game is taking place? No problem – all you need is the Betway app and an internet connection. The app handles everything from placing your betting selection through to processing deposits and withdrawals making it perfect for wagering when out watching the big match. There are no fees and the odds regularly are among the best on offer from any online sports bookie.

How Has Betway Performed Since Opening In South Africa?

It’s been almost a year since Betway launched their site and signs are looking very promising indeed. There was never any serious doubt that sports-crazy South Africans were going to be quick to sign up. Football is naturally the most popular sport, but Betway also offers a huge range of other sports which hold a particular fondness within SA sporting culture. Rugby, cricket, boxing, tennis, golf and much more are all sports hosted on the same app.

Betway is particularly keen to encourage their new customers to take interest in betting on domestic sporting events. The big European football fixtures and global tournaments are always going to attract the most interest, but the gaming company is investing heavily in fostering a brand partnership with South African teams. They are already experts in this and have sponsorship deals with clubs around the world. We’ve already seen them sponsor Mathare United (Kenya) and Ashanti Gold FC (Ghana) amongst others, so expect to see their logo on SA football team shirts sooner rather than later.

Why use the Betway app?

We’ve already seen mobile betting overtake traditional bookies and browser-based betting in Europe, and there’s a number of good reasons for this – and why we can expect the same to take place in South Africa.

As mentioned, convenience is extremely important. It comes second only to quality – and this is where Betway truly excels. Their app is designed specifically for smartphone betting and has an ingenious design that offers all the gambling features of their desktop sites without causing clutter or confusion. The app uses simple drop-down menus to navigate, meaning that within seconds you will be able to review the odds offered for pretty much any live match. Placing a bet is as fast as your connection – typically a couple of seconds!

Compared to using old-fashioned bookmakers it is simply a different world. The odds are better, the bonuses are very attractive for both new and regular players, and transactions are near instantaneous from your bank/credit account to your Betway balance. Sports fans can place bets whenever it suits them on an enormous variety of sports and outcomes. Make no mistake this is a truly global service with fans all across the world now able to enjoy a flutter on whatever they wish, whenever they like. Betway is in South Africa for the long term, and at the time being, they’re cemented firmly at the top of the table.
