BetOlimp Review

OLIMP (Pty) Limited is the registered company trading as BetOlimp South Africa. It is part of the European-owned Olimp Group, which has more than a decade of experience in sports betting and other gambling related activities under its belt. 

BetOlimp Platform

Still, it’s a new name to many in the country having only been launched within the last few years, but through its range of bonuses and promotions, BetOlimp has already started to make waves in the industry. 

It holds a valid licence, issued by the Western Cape Gambling and Racing Board, meaning punters are guaranteed a fair and safe online betting environment, so it’s off to a positive start. Let’s see what else it has going for it.

BetOlimp Verdict

It’s not easy for a new face to enter a market which already has a wealth of competition, but overall BetOlimp has made a successful start to its operation in South Africa. The massive welcome bonus of up to R3,000 definitely captures our attention, yet it would be unfair to say that this is all BetOlimp has to offer.

Admittedly, there are a few weak areas such as no live streaming and no horse racing but for pure sports bettors - especially soccer punters - this site deserves a closer look. Take a peek for yourself: and see what you think.


✔ Generous R3,000 new player bonus
✔ Good choice of betting markets on most sports
✔ Esports betting available
✔ 100,000 to 1 payouts on lotto games
✔ Licenced and legal


✘ No horse race betting
✘ No live sports streaming
✘ Support not 24 ho

BetOlimp Football Betting Tips

Like the majority of online bookmakers in South Africa, soccer betting is the pack leader in terms of coverage. BetOlimp doesn’t disappoint fans of this sport. It offers a vast choice of league and cup competitions from all corners of the globe. Naturally, all of the top European leagues and tournaments are covered but there’s plenty more besides, with action coming from Indonesia, Ukraine and China among many other places.

An area in which BetOlimp performs well is in market depth. For the big games such as Champions League, EPL, La Liga and so on, there is an abundance of betting markets covering everything from handicaps, totals and margins to teams to score, draw no bet and HT/FT correct score. Even fixtures that are not as high profile carry decent depth with the smallest games still offering around 30 markets. This is definitely above average, so if soccer betting is what you’re after, BetOlimp deserves a closer look.
