BetOlimp is a well-known bookmaker across the entire world that has been giving a huge impact on the whole betting industry in Europe since 2004 year. Currently, it even offers a specially tailored version for South Africa, as well as several physical departments spread in different regions of the country.
The betting company’s head office is based in Birkirkara, Malta. The betting house has an official international license from the gambling regulator based in the same country and meanwhile, BetOlimp’s activity is legal thanks to the license provided by the local regulator Western Cape Gambling and Racing Board. The bookie also stands by all rules and decrees given by the National Gambling Board and FICA (Financial Intelligence Centre Act).
In the .co.za website version where all punters from South Africa can make a registration, we have at our disposal most of the services offered in the international BetOlimp website. What is missing here is the casino, as well as the set of the virtual sports, but at the expense of these, the betting platform for our country provides games with Lucky Numbers, which are the easiest ways to earn a lot of money with minimum bet amount. The most important thing, though, is that all bets for sport events, which are more than 70 000, are kept. These bets are for sport matches from both: South Africa and all around the world. Plus – BetOlimp website version for South Africa offers the same high odds we find in the European version of the page and this is, indeed, very good news as the level of the odds for Europe is quite better than the one in our country.
You can join BetOlimp for free and effortlessly. As you will see when you press on the button Join now, the registration will be complete fast – after filling in 14 fields. The most important fields among them are those that are placed at the bottom of the page: verification of your address and your passport / ID. In these fields you don’t just type the number of your ID or the full address, but you also need to upload a copy of them. In order to respond to this FICA (Financial Intelligence Centre Act) requirement prepare in advance by making clear photos of the document where your address is written, as well as of your passport or ID (choose the document you wish).
Transactions in BetOlimp
You can make a transaction to fund your BetOlimp account either by paying in cash (naturally, here we mean to visit any of the betting company’s physical departments), or by making a bank transfer, as well as by using your credit card, but please, have in mind that the betting operator can charge you with 5% fee over your deposits if you choose the payment method with a credit card. There are no fees for the other two deposit methods. However, it is possible for your bank to charge you when making a bank transfer.
What can you place a bet on in BetOlimp?
Placing a bet in BetOlimp is as easy as a childish game due to the simple and excellently structured menu with all the sport types. This menu arrangement is very intuitive to be used via a desktop device.
No matter what time of the year it is, when you browse this menu you will find more than 70 000 markets which are mainly offers for football, tennis, e-sports, rugby and long-term bets. The long-term bets, by the way, are quite favourite for the punters, because here in BetOlimp you will find some of the best ones in the sphere and you can even make predictions about the winner in championships or tournaments that are scheduled for the next two or even more years.
BetOlimp is one of the few websites that offer long-term bets for the two leading championships in South Africa – the Premium league and the First division.
It is an interesting fact that BetOlimp does not have only long-term markets for the winners and the goal scorers in the different championships, but also for things like who will win individual awards like the Golden Ball or the award for the best FIFA football player.
You can also place long-term bets in sport types like tennis (round the whole year you can place a bet for the winner in the upcoming phase of all the 4 tournaments from the Big Slam), Rugby Union, cricket, golf, basketball and dozens of others.
If you are, on the other side, keen on number games, this European bookmaker will be useful for you especially with its category called Lucky Numbers.
Does BetOlimp offer any bonuses?
Three of the four bonuses from the international version are kept in the BetOlimp website version for South Africa. Here are these bonuses:
- Sign Up Bonus 100% up to R 3 000 with 5x playing the bonus amount (please, have in mind that your money does not go directly to your account, but after the deposit you need to inform the bookie via firstname.lastname@example.org e-mail to get the bonus)
- Gold Money Back Special (the promotion refers to the bets up to R 50 placed on the tournaments from PGA, LPGA and the European tour)
- Acca Insurance (a special offer for the 5 leading European leagues + the two club tournaments in Europe according to which the 5-fold bets with minimum 6.00 total odd receive a guarantee that if you have only 1 lost match, you will get the money of your bet back)
Mobile betting in BetOlimp
It is weird and disappointing that such a reputable name in the betting industry does not own any application and the only choice mobile users have to enter the website via their smartphones or tablets is to use the mobile website version or the full desktop version (it is recommended to use the mobile version, though, especially if you use a smartphone).
Customer support service in BetOlimp
BetOlimp offers a specially tailored customer support service for the punters from South Africa. This service has nothing similar with the one for the international website version. The customer support service for South Africa is accessible via 24/7 live chat, e-mail address with non-stop service, as well as a telephone number, which, though works only from 9 AM till midnight.
