YesPlay Casino Review

YesPlay design and layout

Design is basic. For players that are used to opulent online casinos and data-rich online sports books, YesPlay is a little antiseptic. White is the dominant colour with very little to break the almost Arctic look and feel. Menus and tabs are simple. In fact, the only real splashes of colour players will find is when they hit the online casino games – and even there the animation and vibrancy is limited to an animated banner and the colourful thumbnails of the different games.

But there is method to YesPlay’s unexciting madness. This is a South African online gambling partner that is focused almost entirely on bringing players the best mobile experience around. And it works. Without all the usual clutter that players would find on an online gambling platform that is retrofitted to work on a mobile device, YesPlay brings speed and user friendliness to our mobile population. It’s fantastic.

BUT

With the focus on mobile comes a necessary cutting away of all frills. So players get a little less of all the thousands of choices that are available elsewhere.

The simplicity that YesPlay is going for begins with the Sign In/Sign Up process and continues right through the site.

Everything is laid out simply so mobile users have the entire YesPlay experience presented perfectly for a smaller screen. A main menu bar with a Home page link, an info icon, scrollable tabs for Top, Lucky Numbers, Slots, Casino Games, BetGames, Promos, and Sports, Notifications, Live Chat, and Deposit.

A side bar with Player Profile, My Wallet, My Statement, My Bets, Promotions, My Bonuses, Refer a Friend, Settings, Help, Blog, and Sign Out. Also, players can link their profile to their Google account, Facebook, or Apple account for fast, easy, and secure access.

And the site is rounded off with a footer that has additional info and advice on the casino and the games, the sports book, and links to the legals and license info.

Very simple, very straightforward, and very easy on the eye. But a little boring if a very clever way to make the mobile usage as easy and hassle-free as possible.

On one hand, great design. On the other, meh.

YesPlay register

YesPlay has one of the easiest sign-up processes ever! With an emphasis on the mobile gambling market there is only a mobile number needed to register. And where other online casinos ask for everything up to a family history and DNA sample, YesPlay wants just the basics to get you going. Obviously, once you start to withdraw funds you will need to supply a lot more information but getting to the nuts and bolts of YesPlay is very simple.

Sign up:

  • Visit www.yesplay.bet
  • Tap the ‘Sign Up’ button
  • Fill in your mobile number
  • Tap ‘Enter’
  • Create a password
  • Tap ‘Enter’
  • Fill in your ID number
  • Tap ‘Enter’
  • Confirm your name to verify you are who you say you are (this was freaky! They give you a bunch of choices, one of which is your actual name, that you need to choose from!)

Yes! Time to Play!

It’s really that simple.

Log in

Log in is as easy as tapping the ‘Sign in’ button and entering your mobile number and Password.

YesPlay.bet is secured using industry standard SSL digital encryption to ensure all your data is secure and is compliant with PoPI legislation to ensure your personal details are kept private.

YesPlay.bet is licensed and regulated through the Western Cape Gambling and Racing Board and supports Responsible Gambling and Fair Play policies.

Games on YesPlay

YesPlay has a rather limited mobile sports book and mobile casino, but an insane Lucky Numbers lobby! Like, really, really crazy! There are thousands of Lucky Numbers options from every lottery that takes place around the world.

With an emphasis on a streamlined mobile experience for South African online casino fans and online sports bettors, YesPlay does cut back on all the hundreds of thousands of sports markets and online casino games though. But there are still enough choices here to keep any South African online gambler happy. 

Sports betting

Tapping the sports tab will take players to the YesPlay sports book. While the layout may be a little shocking to online sports punters at first, it does make sense for the mobile user. Where players would normally be faced with pages of names and events and odds and markets and teams and side bets, YesPlay offer just the basics. The top of the page holds the options for Live In-Play and general Sports. The expandable bar on the left lists all the sports on offer. There are only 11 sports on offer most of the time, but they do include all the most popular South African sports option: Soccer, Tennis, Volleyball, Ice Hockey, Basketball, Rugby Union, Baseball, Cricket, E Sports, Handball, and Rugby League.

Odds are good if not great and the events and tournaments are likewise not as extensive as some dedicated online sports books.

Limited, but adequate for the average sports fan. Interestingly, there is the option to change to a desktop version of the YesPlay sports book but then you need to log in all over again.

Casino games

Again, a little limited but perfectly acceptable. Online (or rather mobile) casino fans can find more than enough casino games to keep them happy. There are a great variety of online and mobile slots, a good online Live Casino, and a selection of BetGames for something a little faster while on the go. There is a super Live Casino but no online table games or video poker.

Online slots

The mobile and online slots come from providers like NetEnt, Red Tiger, and Habanero. These are some of the world’s top online slots studios so players will get a fantastic slots experience at YesPlay. What really stood out for the CasinoPlay crew was the inclusion of some of our favourite slots games: Guns ‘n Roses is a blast and the Megaways included Gonzo’s Quest Megaways, so we were thrilled!

Players can choose to select slots from the tabs for Top Slots, Habanero, Red Tiger, NetEnt, Free Spins, Classic, Buy Spins, Megaways, Ancient, China, Egypt, Animals, Fairy tales, or Irish.

Online Live Casino

Evolution, Pragmatic Play, Ezugi, and BetGames are the providers for a great little Live Casino at YesPlay. All the live thrills and Live dealer action of baccarat, roulette, poker, sic bo, game shows, blackjack, and craps plus the fast action of the BetGames studio will have online casino games fans engaged for ages.  

Lucky Numbers

We cannot understate how absolutely ginormous the Lucky Numbers lobby at YesPlay is. This is where YesPlay began their online South African gambling journey and it’s evident that they still focus a lot of attention on bring absolutely every. Single. Available. International. Lottery game to South African punters.

Insane.

There is no obvious loyalty or VIP programme but maybe we’ll get more info as we continue visiting.

YesPlay is built on a mobile platform for South African players. The default destination, even from a desktop browser, is the mobile version. There is also a downloadable YesPlay app. The desktop version is still good, but this South African gambling partner is most definitely. Mobile experience first and foremost.

  • Visa and Mastercard debit/credit cards
  • Ozow Instant EFT
