I see that GG Gaming are advertising on the site now, nice one!

I think GG are one of the top new bookies in SA. They have been excellent since they launched and have cracking registration free bets. Their S15 prices are already up so would highly recommend opening an account with them. They are one of the best for NBA and can bet more than R14.71 with them :woohoo:

I agree with you there RB, I find that they have cracking prices on the football. My only issue is their slow site, I hope they can have that sorted out soon. Unless off course there's something wrong on my side (even though I have no such issues with other bookies).

Now that they have a decent first deposit bonus I might give them a try thanks Bugga. The only issue I have on this front is that you have to use your Free Bet as a once off bet and within 7 days (nothing really stands out at present that I would love to put a single R3k bet on).

Also, do you guys know whether they offer additional handicap markets closer to kickoff?

And of course if they have some great cricket markets they actually have a chance of becoming my primary book since those options are rather weak in SA!

Free bets just by registering or free bets once registered and deposited RB?

Sorry its a first deposit bonus up to R3k. Then you have to turn it a few times before you can withdraw.

My take on these is treat them as real ammo and not "free bets", that way you can withdraw the cash later ;)

Hi Guys, just to confirm if you deposit 3k you get a free bet of 3k. As Couch says there is a time limit so you may want time your deposit and I think from memory the price must be 9/10 or better but stand to be corrected.

Will forward them the feedback on the site performance, I know they had some issues in the past and will appreciate the feedback.

I think their football markets are good but haven't placed any bets yet but from a rugby point of view they are a "must have" account.

Is this the Lentin crowd?

I think that this first free bet story is so fecking tired. Every bookie and his dog advertise it and what do they achieve by doing it? I'm prepared to wager my house, a few hundred new accounts that maximise the offer and then remain dormant afterwards. What a marketing strategy masterpiece, in essence what is being said is if we don't incentivise our business, and do this by using an unsustainable model, then we can't attract new fish.

My thoughts over the years have not changed. Try something innovative and attempt to be seen as being a bookmaker and not an accountant. Try differentiate yourself from all the sheep that basically are Turfsports agents with different colour schemes. Try something brain-numbingly brilliant like guaranteeing an amount that you are prepared to stand and throw in a guarantee that accounts will not be limited if you have a second "black" week.

Thank god for Betfair is all I say.

If there are odds offered, I'm interested

I hear you and agree Bugga (and I also have no issue that you have to turn it over a few times as that is just fair) but what I am trying to say is that the T&C's state that you have to use the Free Bet once off as one bet (it can be a multiple). Thus it is only ammo if you make sure that this is a winning/very solid bet. I much prefer those where you get a 50% bonus for instance but can use it as and when you wish in different bets since I don't really stake a 3k play on one specific bet. In unit terms 3k would for instance be a 15 unit play for me and I don't usually stake that on one short term bet.

Anyway, I will seriously consider them once I have a good bet lined up for my Free Bet.

Yes, Catsmug it's Lentin and another guy's book.

Can confirm the slow site. It's very frustrating and have caused me to make bets double and then had to phone to cancel the bet.

Apart from the slow site, I love GG. Have used them from November last year. Their prices are very good, their range of markets are good and their support staff very good and very knowledgeable.

Couch, unfortunately they don't offer additional handicaps.

Catsmug, I agree 100% with you that bookmakers need to be more innovative to attract punters. Sunbet's MVG program is a good example of offering something different. Whenever most bookmakers agree on handicaps or prices I would rather place my bet with Sunbet, because I know I earn MVG points there. You would be surprised how quickly you earn a lot of MVG points. In 3 years my MVG status has gone be from silver to gold to Platinum just from my Sunbet bets. And then earn casino points which you can go and use to play a bit on the tables for free and also earn leisure points which you can use to eat for free at one of the restaurants in the casino. Get a proper rewards program and I would rather make my bet with you than at another bookmaker.

Hey Couch, think I cocked up explaining this so here goes. If you deposit R3k with GG today, you will have R6k in your balance. This is a 1st deposit bonus up to R3k. (If you deposit R5k then you still get R3k bonus). You DONT have to bet R15k on a single bet, you just have to roll over the stake 5 times.
So its a winner!

If you have R3k in the budget for this weekend. Then deposit R3k into GG gaming and your balance is R6k (Already made 100% ROI) Then if you are a R1k a unit punter then you have 6 units to play with this weekend. So just to confirm you dont have to bet R15k on a single punt, rather turn the R3k over 5 times, be it at R500 a bet or R5000 a bet.

If you stuck on what to bet, then just watch the NBA forum today :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:

Haha Bugga no issue with the 5 times play through etc. According to me the T&C's say that you have to use the Free Bet as one single bet:

"5. Any Extra Bet balance must be used in its entirety as a single bet. This single bet can include a single selection or multiple selections in one bet."

Thus if I deposit R3,000 I will have R3,000 cash balance in my account and R3k free bet to use on one single bet of my choice (if I deposit R2,000 it is a R2k free bet). So my issue is that usually I would stake a loose R200 or R300 on one of your NBA picks and perhaps somewhere between R500 and R1,000 on a Super Rugby handicap bet. But now with my free bet I have to stake either R2k or R3k (depending on what I deposit initially) on a single play.

So yes it is nice that I get the Free Bet but I am merely saying that for me personally it is not ideal that I have to wager it all at once. But of course for the bigger players this will not be an issue.

Got you bud. I see its a Free Bet and not a bonus so must clarify that you get to keep the winnings of the R3k but not the stake. So if its 10/11 then you win, you get R2.7k (Not R5.7k)

This for me does take the shine off the promo deal.

BUT, they are still a great bookie

So reading through this, and with the utmost of respect, a "great" bookie is defined as one who gives a free bet? Bollocks.

I make no apologies for being old school. These are not bookies, at my absolute kindest, and I am being kind here, these are businessmen that acquire a licence and software, and go fishing for mugs. Any threat of actually having to pay on a consistent basis is summarily dismissed by limiting accounts, or even closing them, to the extent that it no longer becomes worthwhile betting there.

I have asked Brent 5 years and more back to engage with his sponsors to list what criteria are used when limiting/stopping punters, as well as for each bookie to state what they are prepared to lay to lose. Predictably the silence is deafening. No slur on Brent here, its clear the problem lies with the accountants,

Close the whole fecking lot of them and introduce punter to punter exchanges, regulated by government, with a 10% "rake". Then watch the action. Bookmakers can become obsolete, just like kodak.

If there are odds offered, I'm interested

Ola Catsmug.
Free bet does not make a good bookie, totally agree. I really rate GG as have won quite a bit from them and they have not limited me at all, if I want to go bigger on the punts then they are one of the few that will take my action.

On your exchange idea, I think that is an absolute excellent idea! BG make it happen :woohoo:

Depends on your betting profile. Spreads only offered at Sportsbet. If you enjoy a wide range of exotics then WSB is your book. They offer at least 20 more markets per cricket match ( like Gayle today under 22.5 runs @ 17/20 ) and about the only place you will find Varsity Shield and other smaller local SA tournaments. If you only place 3-5 large bets per week then you probably need 4 or more books as even a small difference in handicaps/odds can be worth a buck or two.
You probably need to post something more specific to get an answer here otherwise just take whichever books offering the biggest sign-up bonus :lol: ( Think its GG Gaming at present )

As this is a book query I won't open a new thread.

Does anyone know of an SA book offering cycling odds on the Tour de Romandie starting 24 April?

It is totally up to them for when it appears, see T&C's below. It is based on the current odds for an event, so for instance if you picked the Stormers -11.5 and the line moves to -20.5 then usually they provide you with a positive cashout.

For some events the cashout stays available during the event but most are unavailable just before kick-off.

It is quite helpful if you have a multiple spread over different days (and not feeling that bullish for the last leg) then you can cashout before the final leg if it is available.
