Supabets Review

Supabets is the premier online sports betting site that caters to primarily to African-based customers, giving them a great way to check the scores, make bets, and follow their favorite sporting events.

Supabets betting

With its headquarters located in South Africa, Supabets was founded in 2008, and is currently owned and operated by Portapa, Ltd. They offer an immersive and thrilling online betting experience for customers all over the world, as well as brick-and-mortar stores to customers in several countries in Africa, with 50 branches opened and counting. The main aim of the company is to bring a safe, enjoyable, and convenient betting experience for both their on-site and online customers in Africa and around the world.


As a sports betting company, Supabets is the main company that offers services in Africa, as well as other countries in Europe, Asia, and the United States. However, the company prides itself a “truly African betting enterprise”. At present, the company has branches in five African countries (namely South Africa, Zambia, Tanzania, Ghana, and Nigeria), with plans to expand to others like the Democratic Republic of Congo and Kenya.

One of the biggest reasons for the company’s success in Africa is that they offer a “one-stop shop” gambling experience for its patrons. When customers visit a Supabets branch, they can enjoy the fast Internet, cool indoor facilities, large plasma TVs, and friendly staff. Supabets offers real-time coverage of sporting events, as well as easy ways to deposit payments and withdraw winnings. The company strives to offer the same convenience and immersive experience for their online website, with fast and smooth live streaming, fun games, quick customer support service, and easy payment services.

They offer a wide range of different sports events that you can bet on, including basketball, soccer, American football, ice hockey, tennis, and cricket. They even cover small sports, such as futsal, darts, and handball! No matter what kind of sport you love, Supabets has you covered. 


The Supabets website is clean, organized, and functional, if albeit a bit basic in design. The green, black, and red motif reminds you of a roulette wheel, and while it’s not the most attractive or unique, it does allow customers to easily navigate around the website and find the sporting event that they want to bet on. At present, the site is only available in English, while can be a problem for customers in non-English speaking countries. 

If you look at the left-hand side of the screen, you will find a list of the available sporting events that you can bet on, while the right-hand displays an electronic slip that you use to place your bets, see the odds, and keep track of your existing bets. On top, there is a display of the current promotions that the site is running for popular games. 

Game Play

Even though Supabets is a small company compared to its international competitors, this doesn’t mean that it lacks in quality and options! They still offer great odds for popular sporting events, with their bookmakers actually being at par with those of bigger companies. They offer attractive betting margins, so it’s highly possible for a player on the site to win big bucks! American football, for example, has a betting margin of around 105%, while ice hockey and basketball range between 107-110%. Not bad!

Supabets has both a desktop and a mobile version, and both feature similar graphics and ease of use. So it won’t matter where you’re on the road, perhaps on the train, and you want to check the scores or check out a game you’ve been meaning to watch. The Supabets live streaming function on its mobile version is just as good as the one of the main site! 

Bonus Rating

Supabets has some of the most exciting bonuses and promotions that you can find anywhere! When you first sign up, you will get a matching bonus of up to 50%, for first-time deposits of up to R500 (around €30). You can even have a small bonus of R200 if you are able to give feedback or suggestions to improve the Supabets website. One of the most interesting bonuses that they have is a money back bonus, where you can receive up to 10% of your money back from losing bets.

Supabets also offer two unique bonuses:

  • Multi-bet special – You can get additional bonuses for winnings on multiple bets, such as a 2.5% double bet bonus and a 30% for a 25+ fold accumulator.      
  • Buy Back Bonus – This bonus is given to players who have 5 or less teams left on their ticket, and they have already won a number of legs.
