Gbets is a sport betting operator that is owned by Goldrush Gaming Group Company, which offers free bets at an amount of R 100 with no special requirements for receiving (except for having a registration in the page, of course). This betting house also provides one of the biggest first deposit bonuses in the country – the amazing 125% with a limit up to R 1 000.
The company that stands behind this bookmaker has almost 20 years of experience in the gambling sector in South Africa, as well as in other African countries. Currently, the company has more than 1 500 employees.
Gbets is one of those many bookies that are based on the betting platform developed by BetTech which is why you can find it similar as to design and the set of offered services to many other sport betting websites from South Africa you might have already used. However, this bookie has several advantages to the rest betting websites that run on the same platform, including the following:
- Fast registration and fast transactions
- Live Match Tracker and Real time Stats Centre in the Live In-Play category where every single months there are at least 5 000 matches to bet on
Gbets promises an extra fast and easy registration, we would say, and it is indeed such! The steps to perform in order to open an account include filling in several fields that are spread in several small categories, including the following:
- Personal details – names, e-mail address and password (no other bookie in South Africa requires so few personal details when opening an account)
- Contact – ID type and Number (in the drop down menu of the first field select to type the number of any identity document you prefer to provide) and mobile phone number
- Location – filling your location is not on mandatory, but, please, have in mind that the bookmaker loves sending gifts to its customer and it is good to know where to send them
- Promotion – includes a field to type in the promo code, but here you don’t have to write anything on mandatory if you have no promotional code
- Terms and conditions – there is no way for you to register in any bookmaker without a confirmation that you agree with its terms and conditions
What makes a really nice impression is the fact that for all of these categories there are useful explanations in clear and entertaining language which is always a symbol of friendly attitude towards the punters one bookie shows.
Please, take under consideration that Gbets has quite serious and significant requirements as to your password and it should contain at least one small and one capital letter, as well as a special symbol and a number. This requirement might sound to you a bit boring and unnecessary, but it is in the sake of your account security.
Transactions in Gbets
You will see the links for Deposits and Withdrawal Funds in the vertical menu under My Account tab and you can choose between the following payment methods for your financial transactions: 1Voucher, EFT, Instant EFT (SID Payment), credit cards, OTT vouchers and i-pay.
R 20 is the least possible amount you can fund your account.
Meanwhile, R 5 is the smallest amount you can place when making a bet per one single bet slip.
As to the withdrawals, Gbets does not differ in such a big manner from the rest of the bookies in South Africa. This bookmaker offers only withdrawals directly to your bank account.
What can you place a bet on in Gbets?
During its nearly 20 years of existence, Gbets has learnt what the punters from South Africa truly need and require, which is why today the bookmaker offers all the necessary gambling services, including sport betting, betting in horse racing, live betting, as well as bets on lotteries.
The profits in this bookie are totally standard for South Africa (in other words, the profit margin this betting company offers is nearly the average level in the country). However, the good part here is that for certain markets we receive some quite bigger odds. Check out the category Bet Boots / Bundles every morning and you will learn what these markets with higher odds are appointed for the day. They are usually for the markets of the top interesting matches within the day and if you like any of them, you can place a bet on it by taking the benefits of the highest odds in the country.
Here is one more thing you might probably truly appreciate in this betting operator – the markets it offers for the live events are accompanied by Live Tracker and live statistics.
Does Gbets offer any bonuses?
There is nothing more amazing for one betting lover than receiving money for free and as a gift without the necessity to make a deposit in order to get it. This is the type of a bonus Gbets also offers – R 100 in total – and every punter from South Africa can take it as long as he or she is of a legal age and has never made a bet as an official customer in this specific bookie.
Then, when you already make a deposit, you will get one more generous gift – 125% of the deposited amount up to R 1 000 (for instance, 125% of a deposit that is R 400 is R 500).
This deposit bonus should be, though, played 5 times on sport betting or 50 times in lotteries and it cannot be used for Tote bets, bets on two or more final outcomes per one market, as well as for multiple bets.
And that were not all – during the month of your birth, Gbets is going to give you R 25 more as a gift!
Mobile betting in Gbets
Gbets has a mobile website version which, according to our opinion, is a true masterpiece. It works totally well on all smartphone models we could test.
Of course, it would be even greater if the betting company also offered an app, but we cannot criticize the mobile betting in this bookie anyhow especially by having such a nice mobile website version at our disposal.
Customer support contacts service in Gbets
Once you enter this betting page you will see a window with live chat opened for you automatically and with a message “How can we help? “. We strongly recommend you to use this window to contact the bookie as it will save you lots of time in comparison to the rest communication methods here – telephone call, Whatsapp, fax or an e-mail message.
