Sports Betting in South Africa


How Sports betting works:

Sports betting is essentially a form of gambling. It involves predicting sports results and placing a wager on the outcome. 

Various types of bets include moneyline bets, point spread bets and under bets.

Before placing any bets, it’s important to read everything you can about the company, the betting opportunities offered, the available promotions, payment options and customer service options.

It’s important to know how much you need to wager in order to be able to cash out your bonus money.

You should only bet what you can afford.
