Gbets Football Betting Tips

Soccer fans can feast on coverage from 55+ countries which produce over 130 domestic league and cups, in addition to Champions League, Europa League and international football betting markets.

Each of the elite European leagues has a wide variety of betting markets such as total goals, halves, goalscorers, handicaps, margins, bookings, corners, BTTS and HT/FT among others. The range of betting options does thin out as you look through the lower leagues, and by the time you reach the amateur divisions there are only a couple of different bets you can place. Gbets has a number of Soccer Bet Boosts that enhance the prices on certain matches, so keep an eye open for those.

Gbets Horse Racing Betting Tips & more

On top of the local horse racing, Gbets offers a number of international race meetings from the UK, France, Ireland and Australia. You have fixed odds win and place markets on all races and tote betting pools, including jackpot, pick 6, double, swinger, trifecta, exacta, pick 3 and place accumulator, on selected cards.

A couple of areas where Gbets horse racing could improve are firstly the layout of the page. All the races are listed in a chronological order rather than by country or meeting. Whilst this may appeal to some, our feeling is that it looks rather messy. Furthermore, Gbets doesn’t offer any type of form guides - something which is essential for horse racing. Capping it off, there’s no live streaming, which is a feature several other online bookmakers offer. 

Gbets other sports


Rugby and cricket are two much-loved South African sports and Gbets doesn’t disappoint customers with a fine selection of betting opportunities for them both. US sporting action is also packed with plenty of NFL, MLB, NHL and NBA markets available.

The tennis coverage is also spot on, and there’s an array of volleyball, motorsports, badminton, handball and golf. Around all of the big events across each sport there is good market depth. It does weaken when you move away from the top tier action, but most smaller independent bookmakers are the same in this respect.

Checking the odds at Gbets, and although it performed well against another local bookmaker (Lance Michael), it was left trailing Sportingbet in several markets. The prices differences aren’t too big, but if you place accumulator bets they do add up.

Gbets Live Betting

Live in-play betting is a new addition to Gbets. You can bet on soccer, volleyball, tennis, rugby, baseball, ice hockey, handball, American football and basketball among other sports.

The number of individual events is not as comprehensive as we’ve seen at some other sites but there is enough to keep most bettors satisfied. Market depth, from the current action we reviewed, is more than acceptable. There were soccer games with 50+ markets, tennis with 30 and volleyball matches with 35+. Once again, the layout leaves a little to be desired. The ‘Live Diary’ is merely a list of the day’s events. There is no way to sort them into separate sports categories, so you need to plough through to find particular events. The Gbets live betting interface is far better. It offers a match visualisation centre and digital scoreboard with up-to-the-minute stats followed by the current betting markets. We found it both easy to use and responsive when placing a bet.

Gbets Website & Login

The Goldrush Gaming Group claims to be one of the best bookmakers in South Africa. However, rather than taking this as fact, our Gbets review aims to find out for certain. First of all, we’ll look at some of the most interesting features, then we’ll explore the sports in greater detail.

Gbets stats


Powered by leading sports data and analytics company Sportradar, the statistics section at Gbets s is well worth checking out. It covers every sport that is available for betting on at this site. There is league, team, player, head-to-head and historical data for absolutely everything. We recommend resources like these because the more information you have about a match, the better betting choices you can make.

Gbets lotto games


Gbets offers both lucky numbers and Betgames. Both are lottery-based games that give players the chance to win big from relatively small stakes. The lucky numbers games use the balls drawn from lotteries hosted around the world - these provide the winning numbers for bettors. Betgames are locally-operated draws that are held every few minutes. The results are streamed live on the Gbets platform. There are a number of betting options available for both games and the payouts vary depending on your chosen game and how many balls you bet.

Website/Usability


This is another Bet Tech Gaming platform so it will look and feel familiar to experienced online sports bettors who have sampled other sportsbooks using this software. The homepage is neat and tidy and there is a quick link menu and a main sports menu to make navigating your way around the site very straightforward. 

As mentioned, some areas could do with being presented in a more orderly fashion, but other than that, it’s a simple website to use. Placing a bet only involves clicking on the pick you want and inserting a stake. Adding multiple selections stacks the various bet types - this could be better by using a toggle system - but it’s still simple enough this way.  Signing up only takes a few minutes, there is an enjoyable blog filled with the latest sports news and the platform uses SSL data encryption software to ensure all players can bet safely.

Gbets Mobile App

The Gbets mobile app is a web-based application. This is just a fancy way of saying that the platform is responsive. All you need to do is use your regular web browser and visit www.gbets.co.za and the design of the site is adjusted to suit your device.

Overall, the layout is virtually the same, so you can flick from one device to another and easily find your way around. You have all of the same pre-match and live betting markets plus lucky numbers and betgames. The simple design makes it fast to move from page to page and the large buttons making placing your bets easy. It is also possible to join directly via Gbets mobile site - registrations, claiming bonuses and banking are all the same, whichever method you choose.
