The betting house World Sports Betting, which is usually called WSB for short, is one of the top reputable betting platforms in South Africa that can be the place where you can invest your money on sport, horse racing, TV games and lotteries. Although it looks a bit plain and simple, this website provides the biggest limit on profits – up to R 10 million – an impressive bonus for new customers at an amount of R 10 000, but meanwhile, has also one of the richest betting programs formed of more than 40-50 different sport types and about 200 000 events per month. So, basically, World Sports Betting is a bookie that is definitely worth it to be checked out.
Popular sport types
It’s hard to determine the top popular and the top well-covered sport disciplines in WSB as this betting operator is trying to be competitive in any sport type, but, of course, it’s impossible for the offers in biathlon and crossfit sections to be as good as the football bets.
Basically, though, this is one of the most complete betting website when it comes to a big choice of different sport disciplines or generally, things you can place bets on. On the other side, the odds are also a bit higher than the average odds in South Africa. Yet, don’t expect something extremely impressive when it comes to odds.
Apart from the traditional for the betting market sport types like football, rugby, basketball, cricket and tennis, we cannot miss mentioning the first-class section for horse racing where all popular bet types are provided. Moreover for most of its horse racing markets World Sports Betting even offers the specially tailored function for live streaming of the event. This option lets the bookie to definitely stand out among the rest of the operators as there is no other online betting company for live steaming of horse racing events in the country nowadays.
To all digital sports lovers we should say that WSB is among the few sport betting websites with such an exclusive offer.
Football, baseball, tennis, basketball, polo, table tennis, balls, cycling, volleyball, cricket, darts, golf, Formula 1, rugby and digital sports represent only a small part of the total number of sport types in the specially tailored section In-Play in World Sports Betting platform.
For most of the events the pack of bet types you can choose from is quite rich and what is even greater, finding the bet you want to place is an easy task to perform as all bets are arranged in a vertical order with nothing distracting around the event names.
If you want to, you can always follow the console that shows the progress of the event, as well as the team that has been more active in each match phase up to now. Plus – you can also take the benefits of the complete stats for corners, yellow cards and many more interesting and useful details. As the entire WSB platform is made in a way to save you as much mobile internet data traffic as possible, you can hide this option, because it consumes quite more internet than the rest functions in this simple website consume.
Registration in WSB
World Sports Betting is one old school bookie and if you are used to place bets in a modern bookie, which spoil you with simple registration processes, now you will have to be a bit more patient till you register. It’s because the registration in WSB takes more time than usual. However, you will not waste more than 5 minutes. Hence, we believe that WSB requires too many personal details in the registration form – such as place of job occupation, country of origin (apart from the residential country) – but the good thing is that most of these details are not mandatory to be filled in.
It’s an interesting fact that if you register via WSB mobile website version, you will see fewer fields to fill in rather than if you prefer registering via the desktop version. That’s why we strongly recommend you to save yourself some precious time and register via the mobile version.
The registration process is additionally prolonged by the strict law requirements and to be more specific, by the requirement of FICA, which obliges the betting operators to collect personal details for the customers, including ID copies. According to FICA this approach is a kind of a special measure against money laundry and other eventual financial crimes. However, you might not care about the specific purposes as what you do care is what exactly you are supposed to do. FICA asks you to upload on the website 3 documents – a document to identify yourself (ID or passport), a document that identifies your address (for instance, a bill) and a document with your bank transactions.
Deposit in WSB
Choose any of these available options to make a deposit in the bookie:
- Ott Voucher
- Bank Transfer
…but please, note that a withdrawal is possible to be made only to a bank account.
Those who want to place bets via mobile devices don’t have to and they even cannot download an app for the purpose as the mobile browser website version is the only platform for mobile betting in this bookie. It means you should only use any browser you prefer and open the website (it’s impossible not to have any browser on your mobile device).
The mobile browser website version design is nothing interesting or cool, but as we have previously mentioned, the main idea is to save mobile data traffic. However, it’s unpleasant not to experience a first-class mobile betting experience, if you have no problems with internet connection as such an experience has been available for all punters in Europe for 15 years.
We would definitely want to see one modern mobile browser website version that corresponds to the digital era we live in.
- Hot promotions for the big events in South Africa and from all around the world
- Voucher for a free bet at an amount of R 100 that is given once you pass FICA verification
- 100% deposit bonus up to R 10 000
What else can you place a bet on in WSB?
In its online service portfolio WSB also have one popular lotto game with live drawing of the numbers – Betgames – that is available in many other bookmakers in South Africa, by the way.
The games here are only three in total – one in 5/36 format, called Lucky 5, the second – Lucky 6 – and 7/42 which, as you can guess, is called Lucky 7. You place bets per drawing, which takes place only few minutes later.
In addition to these, we also see a category with bets that come with fixed odds and nearly 500 drawing sessions from the top big world lotteries.
WSB has made a couple of great actions within the years – for instance, by raising the maxim profit amount limit, offering an incomparable deposit bonus and investing in a big program – but has still a lot of job to do in order to reach a decent world level regarding its design and the design of the services, which by the way, you see are quite nice. Hence, the bookie is a quite decent choice for people, who are not interested in what they see, but in what they get.
