Fafabet Casino Review

Fafabet casino review

Fafabet offers up a mixed bag on the design front. While the layout is recognisable to most online and mobile gamblers, the overall experience is unfinished.

It is evident that Fafabet is going for simplicity and ease of navigation, but the use of oversized icons and big blocks—especially on the landing page—makes Fafabet look like a work in progress rather than a slick and professional finished product. Finding added info about Fafabet, FAQs, Responsible Gambling, and so on necessitates a bit of a journey through the Ts & Cs pages rather than a quick look at the foot of the page as is usual.

Having said that, once players are through to the various portals and lobbies, the experience is precisely what one would expect and what one is used to in most online and mobile casinos and sportsbooks.

What is great is the list of sports on offer (and there are many) laid out very cleanly on the left of the screen for quick access and Fafabet’s use of a very small and simple clickable and scrollable animated banner for promos. It makes navigation much better when you don’t have tons of distracting marketing messages plastered all over your screen.

The Join and Login buttons are placed to the right of the page, leaving the options for Promotions, Fafabet App, Ts & Cs, Live Score, Results, Blog, and WhatsApp at the top of the page. Tabs for Aviator, Prematch, Live sports, Betgames, Vegas Games, Horse Racing, Spin&Win, Lotto, Live Roulette, and Keno sit below the header block and above the promos banner.

No matter which lobby you are in, these tabs and headers are always in the same place, so players can get to their chosen destinations quickly once they are used to the layout.

The tabs themselves are quite small, which we think leads to an unbalanced look. Giant icons for F1 and Football dominate the page, with these rather small options to navigate the site.

All in all, Fafabet have a good but not great look and feel in general, but they do make up for it with some quick response times.

How to sign up and register on Fafabet?

Getting started on Fafabet is very simple:

• Go to www.fafbet.co.za
• Click JOIN at the top right of the screen (the green box).
• Enter all the details as prompted.
• Click “Create” to set up your account.
• Check your email for a verification message from Fafabet.
• Enter the verification code in your account’s “My Details” section.
• Click “Verify” and you’re ready to go!

Log in is as easy as clicking the Login button and entering your email/mobile number and password. There is also an Android App available for download for quick mobile access.

Fafabet is an internationally recognised brand that is also registered with the Western Cape Gambling and Racing Board, which gives it authenticity and local compliance.
SSL encryption keeps user data safe and secure.
The usual Responsible Gambling messaging is not prominent (apart from a very brief note at the bottom of the page), and we only found the relevant information after fishing through the Terms and Conditions page.

What games can I play on Fafabet?

Online and mobile sportsbetting is definitely the name of the game at Fafabet. This is a comprehensive sports site with some great odds for sports fans. However, the online and mobile casino games are not to be dismissed. Some top providers offer online and mobile slots, Live Casino games, Aviator, Instant wins, Keno, and Lotto.

Sports betting

Fafabet boasts that it offers the best odds in South Africa across thousands of events worldwide. It’s easy to see what they mean when you look at the sports on offer, which range from SA’s most popular sporting codes like soccer, rugby, cricket, golf, and boxing to a host of more niche sporting codes.
Horse racing has its own dedicated tab and lobby to cater to the fans of the ponies.

Casino games

Evolution, Pragmatic Play, Red Tiger, and NetEnt are some providers that bring international-quality online and mobile casino games to Fafabet. The Live Casino action is superb and high-quality, while the selection of online and mobile slot games offers a good but limited variety of games. Hopefully, Fafabet will use its partnership with international providers to add to the online and mobile slots portfolio regularly.

Aviator

Spribe’s Aviator game can be found under its very own tab on the main page.

Lotto and Keno

Fans of numbers games can find solid Keno games and a list of international Lottos to bet on.

Quick games

Betgames, Spin&Win and “Live” Roulette allow players to play quick casino games with instant prizes,

Yes. There is a Fafabet Membership Program called Fafa4U, and a Loyalty Program called Fafabet Club aimed at VIPs who want an elite experience.

FafaBet.co.za offers a robust mobile platform compatible with a wide range of devices for gamblers who prefer playing on the go. The mobile version of the site mirrors the desktop experience, offering full access to games, account management, and customer support. Android users can download an App for fast access, although iOS users will need to wait a while until Fafabet brings them on board.

Payment options are a little difficult to find unless you’re registered (one of the reasons Fafabet needs to up its game on the site). Once logged in, though, players can transact using some popular and trusted banking channels.

Deposit

• Visa and Mastercard debit/credit cards
• Ozow Instant EFT
• 1Voucher
• OTT Voucher

Withdrawal

Winnings can be withdrawn into a properly FICA-registered bank account. Fafabet usually EFTs funds into players’ accounts, but funds can also be withdrawn using OZOW, Instant Money, or an eWallet. Remember, when withdrawing funds, you must legally provide FICA documentation to Fafabet, including bank details, ID, and proof of address.

Take note: there is a R25,000 per month limit on withdrawals.

What bonuses and promotions are available?

Bonuses and promotions are sparse at Fafabet, but they do offer a good New User promo. Regular promos and bonuses are available depending on the sport/season/event, and players should sign up for notifications to see exactly what new offers are available.

New Customers Offerings

New users get two sign-up offers – one for the sportsbook and one for the casino.

Fafabet offers 24-hour support for players. Once again, Fafabet falls short in making the Support page clear and obvious. The main page only offers Live Chat and a link to WhatsApp. However, fishing through the Ts & Cs page reveals an email and phone number contact:

• LiveChat
• WhatsApp
• Email: support@fafabet.co.za
• Telephone: 021 330 5426 or 066 556 9989 (after hours)

Fafabet is licensed and regulated by the Western Cape Gambling and Racing Board. Ownership is through Taichi Tech (Pty) Ltd
