Funds from the Sports Bonus Balance can be used to place wagers on “Sports”, “Live Betting” and “Virtual Sports” products.

3. Qualifying Requirements

  1. 3.1 To qualify for a bonus, you must have a Player Account with Bet.co.za
  2. 3.2 Unless otherwise stated, a player is eligible to receive each Bonus once
  3. 3.3 Unless stated otherwise, Bonus offers cannot be combined

4. How a Bonus Works and Wagering Requirements

  1. 4.1 Your Player Account balance is comprised of “Withdrawable Balance” and “Bonus Balance”.
  2. 4.2 All monies which you deposit into your Player Account make up your Withdrawable Balance. Monies which you receive under a Bonus are paid into your Player Account and make up your Bonus Balance (monies that form your Bonus Balance are called 'Bonus Funds').
  3. 4.3 When you bet on “Sports”, “Live Betting” and “Virtual Sports”, monies are wagered from your Cash Balance first and then from your Sports Bonus Balance. For example: If you have R10 in your Cash Balance and R10 in your Sports Bonus Balance and wager R5, your wager shall come straight out of the R10 in your Cash Balance. Only once your Cash Balance is R0, will you start wagering from your Sports Bonus Balance. You will always be able to withdraw funds in your Cash Balance.
  4. 4.4 We also accept blended wagers. For example, if you have R10 in your Cash Balance and R50 in your Bonus Balance and want to place a R20 Bet, the R10 from the Cash Balance and R10 from the Bonus Balance will form the Bet.
  5. 4.5 Each bonus will be subject to wagering requirements which will be set out in the Bonus Specific Terms and Conditions for each bonus.
  6. 4.6 Bonuses expire after 30 days and you must complete the wagering requirements within this time to avoid losing your bonus.
  7. 4.7 You may withdraw sums from your Cash Balance at any time in accordance with the Withdrawal Policy. However, once you make a cash withdrawal from your Cash Balance, any associated Bonus Funds in your Bonus Balance will be forfeited. For example, Bet.co.za offers you a Deposit Match Bonus:
    1. 4.7.1 If you accept the bonus and deposit R100 into your Player Account, this R100 will be your Cash Balance. BET.co.za will then match your deposit and R100 will be credited to your Bonus Balance. Monies are wagered from your Cash Balance; if you place a bet and win R20, your Cash Balance will be R120. If you wish to withdraw your Cash Balance of R120, you will forfeit the R100 in your Bonus Balance if the Bonus Funds have not met the wagering requirements.
  8. 4.8 If you want to withdraw any part of your Cash Balance and there are associated Bonus Funds that have not completed the wagering requirements (as described in the example above) you will need to contact the Customer Support team.
  9. 4.9 Should you receive and have more than one (1) active bonus on your account, bonus wagering applies to the first active bonus and the other will stay pending until such time as the first bonus wagering has been completed.
  10. 4.10 Once the wagering requirements have been met for a Bonus:
    1. 4.10.1 If the bonus is redeemable, the bonus winnings relating to that bonus are transferred to your Cash Balance and you will be able to withdraw the funds in accordance with the Withdrawal Policy.
    2. 4.10.2 If the bonus amount is non-redeemable, any bonus winnings will be transferred to your cash balance and the bonus amount will be removed from your account automatically
