Sunbet Review

Being owned by Sun International has obvious advantages and Sunbet is able to offer a high-end product straight off the bat. Using its vast experience within the South African gambling industry, you can be assured that this firm knows what makes punters happy. 

Sunbet online is operating under a Western Cape Gambling & Racing Board licence, so there’s no question about the legitimacy of this operation. 

On top of sports betting and horse racing, this bookmaker is soon to provide lucky numbers and bet games. New customers can get a 100% first deposit bonus up to R1,000, plus there are daily odds boosts and a weekly prediction game where you can win free bets, sports event tickets and much more.

Sunbet Odds & Markets

You’ll find there is plenty to bet on throughout this site. At Sunbet you can have a flutter on all local horse races and several international meetings from the UK and Ireland. On the website, the racing information is clearly presented, so even total beginners can join and start betting. You have a menu listing: next off, meetings and ante-post. 

You’ll notice a small slider (on/off) button at the top of each race card. Switching this ‘on’ reveals the runners’ form, weight, age and a few other details. The betting options are limited. Sunbet doesn’t offer any tote pools, so you only have win, each way, forecast and tricast. There are also some extra features such as First Past the Post and Best Odds Guaranteed that are Sunbet exclusives.

If you prefer to bet on rugby, cricket or the top US sporting events from the NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL, then Sunbet provides a plethora of markets for you to dive into. It also has a decent lineup of esports ranging from Dota 2 and CS:GO to League of Legends, Overwatch and StarCraft.

Tennis, volleyball, snooker, darts, golf and Australian rules also weigh-in with their fair share of action, too. As for market depth, all-in-all it is competitive with most of the more established online brands in this industry, so you won’t miss out on anything as a punter with Sunbet.

Live Betting

Sunbet offers live betting on several sports including soccer, tennis, basketball, cricket, golf, ice hockey and rugby. Overall, the number of matches per sport is a little lower than some other operators provide but there is still enough to get excited about. Furthermore, market depth is acceptable, too. For the big games, there are plenty of options, and whilst it does drop-off for the lesser known events, it still isn’t too bad.

The top quality Kambi platform makes live betting here delightfully easy. Everything is organised into neat columns and you simply progress from left to right. You can also expand the match animation console if you wish. Your bet slip is hidden away - it pops up when you add a selection. There are icons for Cash Out and Action Bets as well. The only thing missing is live streaming - as yet this service is not available here.

Website and Login

Sunbet is powered by Kambi’s sportsbook platform. This company works with some of Europe’s biggest brands such as 888, Unibet, Casumo, 32Red, Mr Green and Stanleybet, so quality is assured.

A major appeal of this software is its simple, yet stylish design across all devices. The main menu at the head of the page outlines the separate categories: sports, horse racing, lucky numbers and promotions. From there, you have submenus and the sports index to refine your search to exactly what you are looking for. 

Mobile App

This platform is fully responsive, so there is no requirement for a Sunbet mobile app or even a specific mobile site. Everything simply compresses down and the sports index is put into an expandable list. 

Navigating is just as easy as it is on the desktop and placing a bet follows the same method, too. Punters can join direct from a mobile device. The Sunbet mobile site offers 128-bit SSL protection, so banking is safe and you can easily claim your bonuses on the go as well.

Withdrawals and Deposits

Sunbet doesn’t offer iPay, so the banking options are credit cards and EFTs, as shown below:

  • Visa
  • Mastercard
  • Instant ETF
  • Standard ETF

R50 is the minimum deposit you can make. You must email proof of payment to customer support before the funds will be allocated to your account. When making a withdrawal, all requests are processed within 1 working day. You then must wait two or three days more before your account is credited.

Customer Service

If you have any questions, the Sunbet support team is on hand every day from 7:30am to 10:00pm. You can contact them using any of these methods:

  • Live chat: use the icon on the platform to launch this feature
  • Email: support@sunbet.co.za 
  • Telephone: 0861-786-238
