Bonuses & Promotions

8 / 10

Our reviews are known for being honest and fair, so you can rely on our Gbets review. We must admit that the welcome bonus offered to new customers is generous and better than we expected to find for a bookie with Gbet’s industry standing. They are keen to make a name for themselves and stand out from the competition.

The marketing team aims to achieve this by offering players registering for an account a stunning 100% matched bonus free bet. All the top online betting sites use this type of promo as it puts you in charge of your spending and free bet. The more you deposit and gamble on qualifying sports bets, the greater your free bet.

As well as the welcome bonus there are also promotions for existing members. These can be found in the promotions tab at the top of the homepage. The pick of what you’ll find here includes cashback for losing multi-bets if your wager loses by just one selection. There is also a similar cashback offer if your Acca loses by one team. Secure a multi-bet winner and bag a profit boost of up to 30%. The more selections in your bet, the higher your percentage boost.

The sports betting odds available to Gbets sports members are covered in this section. When testing the website and mobile site, we found the odds to be identical on both platforms, meaning you lose nothing by choosing to bet with one over the other. The odds on the most popular sports are competitive when measured against the competition.

Football, for example, has over 200 markets attached to each fixture and the odds on the most popular, such as match winner bets, hold their own against the leading online betting industry names. Check any betting odds comparison website for more on this. You’ll see that this site isn’t to be taken lightly.

Our Gbets review process included searching for a mobile app of SA betting sites. We couldn’t find one, but we did discover a useful mobile site that allows members to gamble when on the move. This is a fair representation of the site’s desktop version in terms of layout.

It has all the same sports, markets, promotions, payment options, contact details and security features. The mobile site condenses all the qualities of the website into your handheld device and is ready when you are.

The GBets online site is refreshingly simple to use. The team hasn’t been too flash here or tried to make things more complicated than they need to be. The website and mobile site are quick, responsive, and a joy to use.



No mobile app for Android or iOS

Some users may find the partial cashout feature confusing

Tennis doesn’t have as many available betting markets as some other sites

You’ll find the sports betting markets you are looking for without delay and can deposit funds with a single click. There are also homepage links to the casino section of gbets.co.za betting.

Types of Bets

We have nothing but praise for the options available from Gbets on various sports. They aren’t as in-depth as some industry leaders when it comes to more niche sports, but they certainly give members plenty to get excited about with the most famous sports. Let’s take football, for example. They have all the top leagues, competitions, teams and players covered.

A match from a major competition set to be shown live on TV has over 200 different types of bets available pre-match. The majority of these remain live throughout the game thanks to in-play betting so that you can wager at any stage.

It wouldn’t be harsh on Gbets to say that they aren’t exactly a household name in the sports betting industry. Not yet, anyway. They were founded in 2005 and only recently moved to their current software platform in 2019. But they are determined to change this, which is proven by their generous welcome offer. What this firm lacks in experience and history they more than make up for with ambition.

Gbets want to break off a large slice of the sports betting pie, and they aren’t about to let a low credibility score from us slow them down. Besides, it’s often worth backing a less credible site as they work twice as hard as the established names to get noticed and impress customers. Gbets falls into this category. Newer and aspiring bookmakers must stand out from the crowd, which they do by making their offers and odds generous.

Payment Methods

We were impressed by many aspects of the site, but this is a younger online bookie who is still finding their way. Yes, they are ambitious and we respect that, but they shouldn’t make the mistake that many other failed bookies have and try to run before they can walk.

It’s worth signing up and trying this site for yourself. You’ll find that the welcome bonus is more than enough to allow you to get accustomed to how the site works, including the layout and the sports offered.

  • Limitations
  • No live streaming available
  • No mobile app available

If you tend to bet on the most popular sports, like football and tennis, you’ll have enough to hold your interest. If you like to bet on more niche sports then you may be left looking for a bit more choice. Regardless of which bets you place, you can be confident the odds offered will be competitive against the leading industry names.
