South Africa has always been, and continues to be, the biggest betting market in Africa. This includes not only land based casinos, but online sports betting as well. Due to the size and value of the market, there are lots of competitors and the betting products are begging to become like a commodity. The only ways to set yourself apart are the odds, customer service and betting bonuses. The betting bonuses are the focus of this article.
There are various types of betting bonuses offered by the SA betting sites and these can include sign up bonuses, first deposit bonuses and multibet bonuses.
Supabets have been around for around 10 years. They have a few betting shops around the country and are also online. They offer a sign up bonus of R50 just for registering. Then on your first deposit they offer a 200% match, up to R1000. As far as multibet bonuses go, Supabets offer 2.5% UP TO 125%, depending how many legs.
Hollywoodbets have been around for decades and are arguably the largest betting company in South Africa. They have many retails outlets, as well being online. Once you register, you receive a R25 sign up bonus, which you need to use within 24hours. They do not offer a 1st deposit bonus, but do have a multibet bonus. Win double your stake back (max R1000) when there are 8+ markets on the slip where the odds are 5/1 or greater. Win five times your stake back (up to R2000) when there are 11+ markets at odds of 10/1 or greater. Win 10 times your money back (up to R5000) when there are 15+ markets at odds of 25/1 or greater.

World Sports Betting have been in the SA market for a long time and have been growing their online presence over the past few years. WSB do not have a sign up bonus, but have a great 1st deposit bonus. They offer to match 100% of the first deposit up to R10 000.
Sunbet offer a 100% 1st deposit match up to R1000. They often have other betting bonuses from time to time, but what makes them popular is the player points you can earn, which can be redeemed at their physical casinos.
