General Info

Our conclusion

World Sports Betting is a popular choice for sports betting, and for very good reasons: their choice of sports is absolutely staggering. From soccer to darts, from horses to surfboards, from live in-actions games to the best of virtual and eSports, fans will find their favourite sports and teams on offer. And with some of the best odds to be found.

However, we were a little disappointed in the casino game side of things. There is a great choice of Live casino games on offer, but none of the fun online or mobile casino games we love. No slots, no video table games, none of those games that we expect from traditional online or mobile casinos and that South Africans love to spend a few minutes or hours playing.

World Sports Betting is definitely a sports bookie with a small casino games side hustle – which is all good if you’re into sports betting because they do it very, very well!

We give it a yes for sports betting – but a maybe for online casino games. There are more comprehensive sites for getting your slots and tables games on.

Design & Layout

For such a well-known and popular online betting site, we were a little taken aback by the design and layout. It’s very busy. If you aren’t familiar with the sports betting world it will be overwhelming.

The design itself is quite simple with numerous layout details to help you navigate the site. Everything is quite clean except for the garish colour bars used to highlight certain links. They are a bit off-putting in their neon brightness on a website that is generally very plain.

The page header has quick links to the various sections: Sports, Racing, In-play, Numbers, Live Games, Evolution, Ezugi, Betgames, Golden Race, and Jika.

The side bars break down all the options into specific sports or lobbies for quick navigation to your chosen bets.

Sign up and registration

Sign up is super simple. Click on the Sign Up Now button, fill in your name, title, mobile number, email address, and ID number (because FICA).

This will take you to an opt in screen where you can choose what communications you want to receive from World Sports Betting. This includes whether or not you want the Welcome Bonus – make sure you read and understand the wagering requirements thoroughly. Make your choices and click Register.

The final step is validating and activating your account. World Sports Betting will send a One Time Password (OTP) to either your mobile number or your email address. Enter this number where prompted and click Submit.

World Sports Betting is now open for all your online gambling needs.

Security & Fairness

World Sports Betting is secured using SSL encryption to ensure all your data is secure.

Adherence to the Gauteng Gambling Board’s regulations means they are practitioners of Fair Play guidelines and they do have the obligatory Responsible Gambling number at the bottom of every page.

Game Lobby & Portfolio

Sports betting

The sports betting portfolio is extensive. Every major world sport is covered plus some fairly obscure sports, competitions, and matches. There is also a Specials category for those who want to bet on things like politics or entertainment (Dancing on Ice winners or Oscar winners, for example).

The sports betting lobbies are on the top tabs and on the side menus. The easy to see tabs at the top of the page will take you to Sports (everything from In-play to horse-racing to American Football to soccer to rugby to darts, and so much more), Racing (worldwide horse-racing events), In-play (live and upcoming matches), and Jika (the virtual sports lobby for horse-racing, motorsports, table tennis, and more).

Casino games

As mentioned, the casino games portfolio is quite limited – only Live casino games are featured at World Sports Betting. However, these are games from renowned studios like Evolution and Ezugi so you know you’re getting quality at least.

There is no Casino Games tab so you will need to know that Live Games/Evolution/Ezugi/Betgames/Golden Race are the tabs you need to click to get through to the Live Casino games lobbies.

The Live Casino games lobbies do offer a good variety and multiple versions of the most popular games though: roulette, poker, baccarat, blackjack, teen patti, andar bahar, craps, and even game shows and fast bet games.

The Live Dealers are super professional, as can be expected from providers like Evolution, but the Live Craps is especially fun if you happen to get Ray, the rather amusing American dealer, for your game!

Lotteries

The Numbers tab will take you to the Lotteries lobby where you can choose to play at various National Lotteries from around the world.

Loyalty Scheme

There is a great Loyalty Scheme for the casino games players – Club Prive. This is a tiered programme that you automatically join when you play any of the Live Casino games.

Tiers in ascending order: Orange, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Black, Super Black.

Your tier is based on your Freeplay earned over a 12-month period and rewards are everything from monthly free play points to exclusive tournament invites to birthday bonuses and even exclusive events invites for the upper tier members. Super Black members have spa days, golf outings, and travel discounts added to their rewards.

Mobile

There is no World Sports Betting app and mobile players will need to use their device browser to get onto the platform. That said, the mobile experience is almost exactly the same as the online version and players will have no problem navigating to their chosen lobbies, placing bets, or interacting with their accounts.
