2022 is in full swing, and there are a number of new sports betting & casino games deposit bonus offers from top South African betting sites. Many of these offers are new, and some are exclusive to Best Sports Betting readers. All the offers covered below are new player or first deposit match offers, which means you can claim them if you have recently opened an account or are a new player and are making your first deposit.
How a first deposit match bonus works
A first deposit match bonus is a bonus that is added either as a free bet or as bonus once you have made a deposit. The offer is matched up to a certain amount, for example R1000, and you will receive the same amount you deposited. For example the offer is a deposit match up to R1000, you deposit R500, which means you will get a R500 bonus on top of your cash balance. There are different terms to each of the offers mentioned below, which we will be mentioning.
Betway have recently changed their welcome offer from a R25 sign up free bet to a 100% first deposit match bonus up to R1000, which offers players much more value than a R25 free bet. You can use any deposit method to claim the offer once you have opened your account (use promo code BSB01), and the free bet will be credited once you have wagered your first deposit 3x at odds of 1/1 or more. You can only use your Betway free bet bonus on sports, it is not eligible for casino games, lucky numbers and so on.
Sportingbet are another site that have recently tweaked their new customer welcome offer, from a 100% deposit match bonus to a risk free first bet up to R2000. Best Sports Betting readers will also get an exclusive R50 FICA bonus when signing up! To activate your risk free bet offer make a deposit of R50 or more, place a qualifying sports bet of R50 or more, and if your bet loses you will get a full refund in form of a free bet to try your luck again!
Bet.co.za have also launched a new offer for first time depositing customers. Instead of getting a 100% deposit match bonus up to R1000 you can now get a 100% deposit match up to R2000 on your first deposit when using promo code GMB100 when making your first deposit. That’s double the standard offer and you can claim the bonus with a deposit of R50 or more, with the bonus having wagering of 6x at odds of 1.70, and you can play casino games to meet the wagering.
Supabets have one of the most generous welcome bonuses around, perfect for sports and casino players. The Supabets welcome bundle offers new players a 200% deposit match up to R5000, a R50 sign up bonus and 10 free spins on the popular Habanero slots games (the same games as Hollywoodbets Spina Zonke). They’re the only site to offer a bundle like this and it’s definitely one worth claiming!
