Hollywoodbets is a fast-growing player in the South African online sports betting market. Although its headquarters are based in Durban, it serves not only South Africa, but also Mozambique, Ireland and the United Kingdom. iGaming Business Magazine ranked Hollywoodbets as number eight on its Top 50 Gaming Sites Worldwide list.

Hollywoodbets offers highly competitive odds, and with its website having recently been redesigned, it is now far easier to navigate than before. 


Founded in 2006, Betway has become a major player in the global online gambling market. South Africa is certainly one country in which it has caught the eyes of customers, which is little surprise given its user-friendly website layout, its shrewd marketing strategy and its colossal catalogue of sporting events available for bettors to choose from.

Betway’s 125% first deposit offer up to a maximum of R1000 can be unlocked by placing bets four times the value of your first deposit into your account.


Sportingbet is a well-established British sportsbook which has successfully broken into the South African market thanks to its large array of available sporting selections and its promotions. For 2019 Durban July bettors, this site is definitely an attractive option, as Sportingbet offers both an automatic cashout offer and a whopping 100% first deposit bonus up to R2000.

Sportingbet’s user-friendly website and great offers are complemented by a popular mobile app which you could use to your advantage whilst on the go betting on the Durban July.


SunBet is a sportsbook owned by the Sun International group, a company created by famous South African businessman Sol Kerzner and probably best known for the Sun City holiday resort and casinos. A relatively new addition to the online sports betting market, Sunbet offers a 100% first deposit bonus up to R1000. Whilst they are not the only South African sportsbook to offer a first deposit bonus, they are well-known for the freedom afforded to bettors of single bets, for which they allow selections of up to a whopping R250 000. SunBet may be the new sportsbook on the block in a sense, but it looks like they are here to stay.
