Interbet is not one of the flashiest or boldest online sports betting sites in operation, but it more than makes up for its average appearance by offering a vast and varied selection of sports betting lines and worthwhile odds. Launched just one year into the new millennium, Interbet.co.za has a licensed issued by the Western Cape Gambling and Racing Board which means it’s reputable, safe and trustworthy.
This South African online bookmaker has a state-of-the-art online and mobile betting platform which is certified by the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS), and protected at all times by the latest 128-bit SSL digital encryption software. This means you can rest assured that all of your personal, financial and betting information is safe and secure, and will never be disclosed to or shared with a third party.
Aimed solely at South African punters, Interbet only accepts and processes South African Rand (ZAR). This is great news for South Africans who have tired of betting at offshore owned and operated internet bookmakers in foreign currencies such as dollars, euros and pounds. In addition, the banking methods accepted by Interbet are all South African-friendly, and include credit cards, bank deposits and EFTs.
Of course, the real appeal of Interbet lies is in its large collection of betting lines on all manner of sports from around the globe and South Africa like horse racing, rugby (union), cricket, golf and soccer, to name just a few. Betting lines are updated constantly at this ZAR sports betting website so you can take advantage of the latest odds and wagering action on your PC, notebook, laptop, smart phone or tablet.
The web platform is rather old-school compared to some of the more modern betting sites. The home screen gives you an overview of the different parts of the site such as tote betting, live betting, lotto draws and the different sports, but it doesn’t display any markets to instant engage punters.
The head menu makes navigation supremely easy. You have sections for tote, horse racing, soccer and sports. It does get a little clumsy when search through the various soccer leagues as you have to keep returning back to the main hub page to view alternative matches. A breadcrumb type system would make things much smoother in our experience.
Your bet slip offers singles and multiples. As you add selections, it automatically sorts the bet types for you. There is a default stake of R10.00 inserted, which you can keep or change before placing the bet.
The sports or sports betting markets / events page is simply fantastic. It has scores of sports all well laid out and they have pictures. That’s definitely something we have not seen before and it certainly works. Not sure what Bandy is? Just look at the picture and you’ll instantly know. A really good touch from the Interbet design team.
Interbet offers betting across a wide range of sports and lotto that includes badminton, baseball, cricket, boxing, cycling, golf, rugby and more. This enables the user to place bets on sports in which they have personal interest. It also features a range of lotto betting options including SA Lotto, UK 49s, UK Lotto, SA Power Ball and more. So you have a good variety of sports to choose from, it’s not the best but it’s more than enough to keep you occupied.
Interbet offer its customers series of jaw-dropping betting competitions ranging from the popular soccer bet among other sports bets like Tennis, Cricket, Golf, Rugby within South Africa and outside world. You can wager on any of the aforesaid games by placing multi-bets, In-play live streaming, telephone betting or Virtual play.
- In-play Live Streaming
In-play Live streaming is a kind of bet you place once a gaming event is in progress. The reward changes in accordance with the way the game is trending.
- Virtual Events
In Virtual events, games are randomly generated and what customers bet on has no direct effect on the result.
- Multi Bets
Multi bets enable you to combine a number of selections from the different market into one bet. For instance; combining (Manchester City to be the first team to score in their game + Manchester United to win with 2 : 1 + Chelsea to play draw with Arsenal). If the aforesaid game combination manifest, you will win multiple jackpots. However, if any of the selection does not occur, you lose the entire bet.
Their platform for in-live betting is excellent because it allows you to bet on different live events, and as the interface is clean and straightforward, your experience will be more satisfactory. Everything is perfectly organized. One of the best live betting platforms in the market because the navigation is smooth and pleasant.
The odds are updated in real-time and the website runs without lags and they display the latest stats clearly and on time.
Unfortunately, Interbet is very limited when it comes to live streaming, which is a major downside. However, it offers live streaming for some sports and events like:
- Beach Volleyball
- CS: GO
Interbet definitively needs to improve their live streaming, because it falls short in comparison to competitors like William Hill and Unibet.
Players who enjoy the thrill of lotto games can play fixed odds lucky numbers at Interbet. The concept is simple, you bet on what numbers you think will be drawn from a stack of different lottery draws including the South Africa Powerball Plus, Russia GosLotto and the UK 49s among many others. The site operator provides the odds; for example you get 8 units profit for picking one number from the SA Powerball draw, 100 units for picking two numbers and so on. Please note, you are not buying an actual draw ticket – you’re merely betting with the bookmaker so all payouts are fixed at the odds quoted.
Tote betting offers punters the chance to win very large prize pots from relatively small stakes, which is why it’s so appealing to many punters. Interbet is partnered with the official South Africa TAB tote, thus providing a premium choice of betting pools.
Horse racing enthusiasts can tote bet on races from South Africa, UK, Hong Kong and Australia. Each day there are different tote betting options available. To see what the current options are, just click on the Tote TAB link in the header menu. This will list the various race cards with the betting pools listed beside each race, like jackpot, bipot, all to come, pick 6, pick 3, place accumulator, swinger, double, trifecta, quartet, exacta, win, place and each way. There is a useful ‘?’ icon beside each pot which explains what you have to do to enter and win.
Other pool betting options include tote soccer betting. There are several different pools you can join. Soccer 6, Soccer 10 and Soccer 13 Xtra use daily fixtures to create a coupon in which you must select home win, draw or away win for each match. Soccer Score is 10 matches and you are required to choose between: no team to score, one team to score or both teams to score (btts). Further options are Soccer 1 and Soccer 4 where you must predict the winning margin for the selected matches. Lastly, there is also a series of tote betting pools for rugby and boxing available, too.
Interbet Mobile App
The bookmaker fell short of a glowing recommendation because the is not Interbet app that you can download. The betting site is optimised to offer an interactive mobile view that is very easy to easy access. Not a lot of SA bookmakers offer a mobile betting platform to their players, and that’s one of the things that sets most bookmakers apart. You won’t struggle to navigate through the Interbet mobile browser platform, featuring the same betting lines that you can find on the desktop platform. You can find all the of the top Interbet horse racing bets to win big.
Interbet offers a 100% welcome first time deposit bonus up to R1000, and which can only be claimed if a punter uses the entire R1000 on one bet. This stipulation can be found under the site’s terms and conditions and is unlike almost every other welcome bonus offered on the market. The majority of first-time bonuses have rules that state the punter must play the amount five times (placing five separate bets) to qualify for the amount.
There are other rules regarding this bonus such as the maximum amount of winnings that can accrue from a bonus amount is capped at R5000. This means that if a punter deposits R1000, then receives another R1000, they will be allowed to win only up to R5k.
The site also offers a ‘refer a buddy’ bonus of R25 to the existing client. These are the only displayed, advertised promotions on offer.
All players start at Club Level. For every Rand 2 made on a losing bet, players earn 5 loyalty points. There are Three levels – Silver (30,000 to 99,999 in 2 months/15,000 maintenance points per month), Gold (100,000 to 249,999 in 2 months/50,000 maintenance points per month), and Platinum (250,000 plus in 2 months/125,000 points per month). It looks like the maintenance points are what keeps your level just in case you’re not playing as much. Okay, so you also earn a percentage increase of points earned (Silver/25%, Gold 50% and Platinum (100%) on the value of your bet. Sounds confusing right? Every 1000 points can be redeemed for Rand 1 dollar to bet on games.
