Betway The Return Promotion

Betway have launched a brand new promotion called “The Return”, clearly based on the major leagues like English Premier League and Series A returning back to playing after the international lockdown. They are giving away R120 000 in cash prizes and to enter all you need to do is to place bets on Betway, on these leagues.

Simply bet on any LaLiga, SerieA, EPL or Bundesliga match between 20 June to 31 July to enter the draw.
Every day, Betway will choose 1 winner and give them R500. The winner needs to use this R500 in a limited amount of time, or it rolls over to the grand prize pot.

The grand prize consists of:
First Prize of R50 000
Second Prize of R30 000
Third Prize of R20 000
All the winners chosen randomly.

Remember, to stand a chance, you need to enter the draw daily, by placing a bet each day. So it seems like each daily entry adds one more entry to the pot, meaning your chances of winning are increased the more your play.


Hollywoodbets have just launched a brand new betting product called Fantasy League Betting. Along with some of the other betting products they have recently launched (such as Jika Sports), they are really pushing hard to ensure players have plenty to bet on. This one combines playing a fantasy league game with fixed odds betting.

What is Fantasy League Betting?

You have the chance to choose and build your own soccer fantasy team from the players taking part in specific games. You are choosing your own fantasy team so you will need to select 11 players.
You then earn points based on these players behaviour in the real game, and the total points are added up after the game week. The more points, the better. Odds are then assigned to the points range you have earned to calculate the total odds for your bet, and then applied to your betslip. You can see below the points odds range example as well as the rules for earning below:
GK: Goalkeeper
DEF: Defender
MF: Midfielder
FOR: Forward

So, for example, if your defender scores a goal, you will earn 8 points, but if it were your midfielder you would earn 5 points.

How to play Hollywoodbets Fantasy League Betting

You firstly need to have registered with Hollywoodbets and FICA’d your account. You then go to the Hollywoodbets mobile site and scroll down until you see the link for “Fantasy League Betting”, and then click “Play Now”.
Firstly choose a name for your team, and then start building it. There are a few criteria you need to build a team, which are:
• 11 Players
• Up to a maximum of four players from a single team (for example, you may only pick four Arsenal players in your side)
• One goalkeeper
• Three to six defenders
• Two to six midfielders
• One to three forwards

After you have built your team, you need to choose your Captain and Vice-Captain. To do this, click either the “c” fr Captain or the “vc” for Vice Captain, under each player. You need to think carefully here, as the Captain will earn double points (your Vice Captain is there in case your choice for Captain isn’t selected to play in the match). If your team is not built properly, the purple progress bar will still be purple. It turns orange when you are ready to move to the next stage.
Now, scroll down, enter your stake and take a look at your potential winning (total odds). Then click “Bet”

Hollywoodbets Fantasy League Betting Tips

Even though this is a Fantasy League game, it is still based on reality and on real player’s performance. This means, you can use your knowledge of how teams and players perform in real games to help guide your fantasy league betting predictions. If you know that a certain player scores well from the defender position, then you should include them as they can generate high points. If other players often get carded, you should stay away as those can cost you negative points.

Sportingbet South Africa have just released another free to play game called First to Three. It is quite similar to the Betway 4-2-score game. The First to Three prediction game is free to play and you need to predict the first goal scorer in 3 matches (as selected by Sportingbet). However there are consolation prizes, and include:
Correctly predict the first goalscorer in 1 match and win a R10 Free Bet.
Correct predict the first goal scorer in 2 matches and win a R50 Free Bet.
Correct predict the first goal scorer in all 3 matches and win a R10 000 in cash.

Betway have just launched the Betway Build a Bet product. It seems each week Betway South Africa are announcing a new betting product, game or promotion. This is starting to really allow them to break apart from the rest of the betting sites in South Africa and pull ahead.

What is Betway Build a Bet

Betway Build a Bet is a betting product that enables you to build multibets that include multiple outcomes from a single fixture. Typically you would not be able to add related bets to a betslip, but with the Betway Build a bet product, you now can. This will make building your multibets even more fun now.

How to use Betway Build a Bet

Firstly you need to make sure you are registered with Betway, and if not, be sure to claim the R25 Betway Free Bet.
Then, log into your account and decide which soccer match you want to build a bet with. Click on the option for more betting markets and you will then be given the full list of all betting markets for that soccer game. At the top you will also see a link saying “Build a Bet”. Click on this. You are now able to go through and choose which betting markets for this soccer match you want to add to your multibet. Most markets are available, including: 1X2, Both teams to score, Over/Under (0.5,1.5,2.5,3.5), Handicap, Which team to score, Odd/Even, Exact Goals, Winning margin, and plenty more…
Once you have chosen which markets you want on the build a bet betslip, click on the Selections tab at the bottom of the page and this will show you all the markets you have chosen. If you are happy with these, then click the green “Add to Betslip” button.
You then need to go to your betslip, enter your stake, and click the “bet now” button.

At this stage, Betway Build a bet is only available for soccer matches, only pre-match and up to a maximum of 10 selections.

It seems like data free has become the new way for betting sites to market. First there was Betway offering data free, and now it’s Supabets. We’re not complaining and hopefully soon all the South Africa betting sites will offer some aspect of betting data free. So, how do you get to bet on Supabets Data free?
We have no idea how long this will last, so ensure you use it as much as you can until it is stopped.

How to use the Supabets Data free site

In order to bet data free on Supabets, you need to use their datafree URL which is https://supabets.datafree.co/Home.aspx. This is the only way to ensure you will not be charged for the data. The best way to check, is to go into your phone settings and turn off your mobile data. Once you are on this data free url, you can navigate around and place the bets you want to, and as long as you stay on it, you will not be charged data. If you do navigate somewhere or click on something that will not be datafree, you will be given a warning so that you know and can decide if you want to continue or not.

What can you do on Supabets Data free

Supabets have tried to make as much as possible datafree, so at the moment you will be able to do the following data free on Supabets.
Bet on Sport (all sports, both pre-match and live)
Bet on Lucky Numbers (all lotto games)
Bet on Horse Racing (pre-match and live)

No word yet on being able to bet on Jika sports, play live casino games, Betgames, Keno and Mo Fafi. Hopefully as time goes on they will add more and more betting products data free and include other items such as being able to register, deposit and withdraw data free as well.


Betway South Africa have launched a fully complete Data free website. The Betway DATA free site means that you will now be able to bet on your favourite games and matches, without using any of your own data. This means the only cost to you will be the cost of your bets/stakes!

You will be able to place bets on all pre-match games and live games (all sports), as well as Esports, without using any of your data. You will also be able to make your Betway Four to Score predictions free as well. This is a great effort by Betway South Africa, and goes to their customer focused approach. You can also make deposits on betway using the data free site if you deposit using bank transfer or vouchers like 1voucher, but debit card, credit card and Ozow payments will require data.

Can anyone use the Betway Data Free Site?

Technically the Betway data free site is available to anyone with a mobile phone. But there are a few qualifying criteria. Firstly, you need to be successfully registered with Betway. You do not need to have any funds in your Betway balance in order to play, but if you try access the data free url from the Betway homepage it will need you to.
