World Sports Betting are a South African bookmaker with a strong retail and online presence. WSB have grown in great strides from what used to be a pretty standard bookmaker into a bookmaker that can now be considered as a market leader.
They are often referred to as the “People’s Bookie” as they are very interactive with punters and help sponsor numerous Superbru and other competitions. Not only that, they also sponsor the Cape Cobras, Highveld Lions and 2 EFC fighters as well as several smaller sporting organisations.
WSB currently have a huge R10000 first deposit match bonus, claiming to be the biggest first deposit bonus in South Africa. We’ve seen bigger offers in the past but few come close to the R10000 offered by Worlds Sports Betting. The closest you can find is R10,000 offer from Betxchange and the R15,000 one from Supabets, given the terms the WSB offer is better than both of these.
The site itself is nothing special in the sense that it won’t blow your socks off but it has everything you need. It’s easy to navigate and you know exactly where to go and how to place a bet. They are also very responsive on social media so if you have an queries they should be sorted out quickly. The customer service agents are also available 24/7 on phone and live chat which is a rarity among South African bookies.
The World Sports Betting mobile site is simple and efficient. It’s slightly out of date but this does not affect it’s functionality at all. The WSB Mobile site is a joy to use and it uses very little data, important for those rand conscious punters.
Also, they aren’t shy when it comes to pricing markets up and if you see a market you like overseas then the chances are that they will price said market up on request. We’ve seen several markets on WSB that you won’t find anywhere else. They are also one of the first books to price up EFC and Varsity Cup so if getting early value is your thing then WSB are a great option.
World Sports Betting are one of the few South African books that have regular Esports markets for Dota 2, Lol and CSGO. Many others have trialed it but I’m glad to see WSB are sticking to it. WSB have also added streaming of Esports matches to their site, something that is incredibly useful for Esports bettors. We’ll be launching a section dedicated to Esports Betting in the near future.
WSB offers customers betting services on sports such as American football, Aussie Rules, baseball, basketball, boxing, cricket, cycling, darts, floorball, Gaelic sports, golf, handball, ice hockey, lucky letters, mixed martial arts(MMA), motor sport, lotto, power ball, rugby union, rugby league, snooker, soccer, tennis, volleyball, winter sports and specials.
WSB have done so much right that it is difficult to find fault with them. They have the best sign up bonus in South Africa, some of the best promotions and are attentive to their customers. If I have to be picky their customer service is average but available 24/7, we chatted to a few agents who seemed knowledgeable but took their time replying.
