Topbet is a comparatively young and modest sport betting website, which, though, represents a choice for thousands of punters due to the bookie’s quality service, kind attitude and stable website infrastructure that allows you to place bets every time you want to.
The betting house is basically focused on the online punters and to be more specific – the mobile users – but meanwhile, it also has quite many unities from the real physical world which are concentrated mainly in Limpopo and Gauteng.
Both – the bookmaker’s online and offline set of services are in a connection and in both places you are going to have a wide range of practically the same types of bets to place so what you have to do is simply to figure it out whether you prefer to bet in internet, or by visiting any of its physical departments. For most of the online betting lovers the alternative that is more preferable is more than just obvious as the online betting activity by all means saves a lot of time, but even if you have placed a bet in any of the physical shops, the betting page is going to be useful for you as the Ticket Lookup category lets you check out the result of your bet slip once you enter its number.
The officially registered users in Topbet have no bonuses or promotions to take benefits of (although there are games with some really solid prizes like automobiles), but at the expense of this they can bet on more than one dozen of sport disciplines, as well as on Crazy numbers and Betgames Lotto.
In order to join Topbet you need to do two things:
1. To fill in 7 lines in the bookie’s registration form
2. To upload on the website or to send on the company’s e-mail address your FICA documents
The registration form can be found very easily in this betting page. In the mobi page it can be opened via the second link in the horizontal menu on the home page (Register) and in the desktop website version the button for the registration from is in the top right corner or right next to the Login button.
When you open the form you will fast realize that there’s nothing to worry about it, plus – you are dfinitely not going to lose so much time in filling in the lines. You might have probably come upon bookmakers that require from you to fill in dozens of fields, but this one isn’t one of them. On the contrary, in Topbet you should fill in only the following 7 fields:
- First name
- Last name
- Type of identity document (select between ID and passport)
- Number of the identity document (enter the number of the document you have selected to use in the previous line)
- Mobile phone number
- E-mail address
- Residential address
As you can see there’s no field for a password in this form. You will be sent a temporary password in SMS message and thus you will also confirm the validity of the enter number at this same time. When you already have a temporary password and then, when you type it on the field for the password in the betting website you will find out how you can select a new, your own password for the account. Note that the page where you need to type your temporary password opens once you complete the entire registration form.
The documents for the FICA Act verification can be sent on this e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org or uploaded directly in the website.
Transactions in Topbet
The transactions in Topbet can be done very easily either online or directly in the company’s physical shops. If you select to make an online deposit in the betting page you can use all the popular payment methods like bank transfers and vouchers. If you deposit via i-Pay you will get the chance have a refund of your payment up to R 10 000. If you are lucky enough to be one of the winners of this chance you actually will be able to fund your betting account without paying even 1 Rand.
What can you place a bet on in Topbet?
As to the sport bets, in Topbet you can place bets on the following sport types:
- Horse racing
- Ice hockey
By viewing the programs of all the different sport types you will surely get impressed by the football program where you can place bets on the South Africa Premier League, South Africa First Division, South Africa MTN 8 and at least 200-300 more leagues and tournaments from almost 100 countries. The football bets available in this betting house are not less than those offered in the top leaders from the industry, but what is weird, though, is that for many of the biggest matches the market for Under / Over 2.5 scorers isn’t available and we need to admit that it’s one of the most favourite one for the audience. This market is available only in a combo with the market for the final score in the match. For example, you can place a bet for Under 2.50 scores and Manchester United to win in the event.
The horse racing bets are also quite a lot and the program for this sport type is so rich that whatever time of the day you choose for some betting activity it’s almost 99% possible to find an event to place a bet on. Moreover – this event is going to soon start.
Dozens of matches per day – this is the offer you receive for rugby, tennis and basketball, as well.
One of the weak points in the sport betting section here is the lack of other sport disciplines except for those we have listed you above. However, we believe that most of the top interesting sport types in our country are available in Topbet and probably the only one missing is cricket. The other thing, which might be also important for the audience in South Africa, is the availability of live betting category.
At the expense of the small number of the available sport types and the lack of any live betting option, the category called Crazy Numbrs in this betting house offers one of the biggest ranges of offers from many lotteries from all over the world. For instance, here we can even place a bet on a drawing from countries like Taiwan, Barbados and the Philippines. The number games in Topbet are interesting due to the alternative types of bets on them. You will find these bets in the categories called Crazy Multi Numbers and Crazy Number Special.
The third game type – Betgames Lotto – offers the standard set of the games developed by Betgames which can be found in many other bookies so there’s practically nothing new to say about them. The only problem is that here you cannot watch each drawing live – you can, instead, follow the results only which, by all means, reduces the fine customer experience.
Does Topbet offer any bonuses?
As we have already mentioned it, currently Topbet cannot please you with any special offers, but the information we have recently received says that the company has handled this issue and according to the rumours soon there are going to be bonuses. Mainly, the information says that the bonus is going to be for all new customers, while there’s also an idea for the bookie to add some topic temporary promotions once in a while as well.
Yet, the betting company has now one game with real prizes and they are not bad at all – two cars Nissan NP 200 Bakkies. In order to get a chance to receive such amazing gifts you need to enter this address https://topbet.chalkline.com or simply visit any of the bookie’s physical shops.
Contact service in Topbet
The customer support service is definitely one of the strongest points this gambling operator can brag about. It’s because this service is available 24/7 and because the customer support team is very helpful and professional. The only problem, though, in the service is that there is no platform for live chat in the betting page and thus, the only communication methods are only the following:
- The bookie’s accounts in Facebook, Tweeter and Instagram
- 0861 867 238 phone number
