The online sports betting industry in South Africa is growing rapidly and the top platforms provide a wide range of products, services and features.
World sports betting (wsb.co.za) is one of the better-known establishments in the country and there are a host of markets available including the national lottery, substantial sportsbook, various tournament boosters, horse-racing and betgames.
Betgames is an exciting, innovative feature which offers punters the opportunity to play nine games, all in a format that includes the best of virtual play and live broadcast gaming.
The live broadcast betting concept is centred on the premise of providing the excitement and casino-like experience of an actual presenter or dealer with games taking place at a rapid rate.
This feature on wsb.co.za offers nine games including lucky 5, 6 and 7 (lottery-like draws), poker, baccarat, Wheel of Fortune, War of Bets, dice and dice duel – all running 24/7.
The lucky 5, 6 and 7 draws take place every five minutes and are separate entities in that each has a different presenter, game format and structure.
The games are all outcome based with a wide bet-market – for example in the lucky 5 there are 90 outcomes based on balls drawn, odds/even, over/under, colour, order and more.
The lucky 6 offers 40 different outcomes and incorporates a similar bet market, while the lucky 7 offers 70 different bets.
Bet on Poker and baccarat are table favourites and offer the punter a chance to feel like they are playing in a casino, but with a significantly increased bet market. Baccarat is played every 120 seconds and offers 30 different outcomes. Bet on Poker is played every five minutes and offers 15 betting options.
The Wheel of Fortune is a spinning wheel landing on a certain number, and is played 2 minutes with 20 outcomes available, including colour, odds/evens, over/under.
There are two dice games, played every three minutes each offering 30 different outcomes.
