Interbet has been around since 2001, which makes it one of the pioneers of the online betting industry in South Africa. It carries a solid reputation due to its impressive 150% matched deposit welcome bonus and the wide variation of betting activities punters can indulge in. 

Interbet Platform

The website is operated by Interbet International (Pty) Ltd and it holds both a bookmaker licence for its traditional sportsbook and a manufacturer licence for the betting exchange issued by the Western Cape Gambling and Racing Board.

Interbet Verdict

Interbet is a proven bookmaker in South Africa and it has a positive reputation among existing punters. It is one of the only platforms that combines fixed odds, tote betting and an exchange in the same suite which gives punters the ultimate choice.

Certainly, there are a couple of areas where it lags, like limited markets in some quarters and no live sports streaming but overall, this is definitely one of the better betting sites in the country and well worth checking out - the huge welcome bonus is also another eye-catching reason to give this place a look. 


✔ Generous sign up bonus
✔ Large tote pool prize pots
✔ Built-in betting exchange
✔ Live customer support
✔ Lots of banking options


✘ No esports betting available
✘ No live sports streaming
✘ Rewards scheme only for losing wagers

Overall, Interbet offers respectable odds on average, plus you also have the betting exchange which may provide even more value.

Interbet Football Betting Tips

Soccer is the main sport and all the match information can be found under the ‘Soccer Zone’ tab. It covers action from all of the top European leagues such as the Premier League, Serie A and La Liga. There are also another 70+ cups and competitions from 40 other countries, and Champions League, Europa League and International matches. Although, the variety of fixtures is top notch, the number of betting markets could be expanded as the top-tier matches only serve up around 30 options. This is enough for most customers, but other sites do offer more.

In addition to soccer, Interbet has plenty of rugby, cricket, basketball, ice hockey, tennis and American football. There is also Aussie rules, volleyball, badminton and less mainstream events such as bandy, cycling and squash. Once again, it’s not flooded with market depth, but for most average punters the choice is sufficient. 

Interbet Horse Racing Betting Tips & more

You can bet on both local and international fixed odds horse racing at Interbet online. When viewing the race cards, you’re presented with an enormous amount of data which includes information about the conditions, top jockeys and trainers, draw numbers and allowances. There are in-depth form guides for each runner in the field plus ratings and expert tips as well. It is one of the most comprehensive pre-race info-packs available online and we highly recommend punters taking advantage of these resources to improve their bet selections. Interbet also provides live video streaming of South Africa and UK races for customers who have funded accounts.

Interbet Live Betting

You’re able to bet live on a number of sports ranging from soccer, tennis and rugby to cricket, basketball and volleyball. On an individual event basis, Interbet is not the most action-packed live betting site but it still musters up well over 1,000 matches a week for punters to enjoy.

The number of betting markets is pretty decent in our opinion. It does vary from game to game with the top events generally offering more options - but this is quite standard among many sites to be fair. Its live betting platform is straightforward. There’s running text for action moments and a few in-game stats, then below you have all of the betting options. To get your money in the game, just click on a price and it will be added to your bet ticket, then insert a stake and confirm the bet.

Interbet Website and Login

Interbet’s betting platform is functional but it’s no design masterpiece. The homepage breaks from the norm by simply introducing the various categories available - which to Interbet’s credit is a rich choice. Navigation to the various areas of the site is stress-free as you only need to choose where you want to go from the head menu. It’s then a case of following the sub menu options to narrow down the game and betting markets you want. 

Interbet Exchange

Having a peer-to-peer betting exchange combined on the same platform as a traditional bookmaker service is excellent news for punters as it offers more choice and potentially better prices. 

For those unfamiliar with betting exchanges, they operate by matching bets from customers without the involvement of a traditional bookmaker. For example: Jack wants to place a bet on Tiger Woods winning the 2019 US Masters. But, Peter doesn’t think Tiger Woods will win this event, so the exchange creates a bet between the customers. A known advantage the betting exchange offers is that they frequently offer better odds than what you get from a standard bookmaker. You are required to pay 3% commission on winning bets which eats into your profits, so you need to calculate where the best value is before betting.

Interbet Lotto

Players who enjoy the thrill of lotto games can play fixed odds lucky numbers at Interbet. The concept is simple, you bet on what numbers you think will be drawn from a stack of different lottery draws including the South Africa Powerball Plus, Russia GosLotto and the UK 49s among many others. The site operator provides the odds; for example you get 8 units profit for picking one number from the SA Powerball draw, 100 units for picking two numbers and so on. Please note, you are not buying an actual draw ticket - you’re merely betting with the bookmaker so all payouts are fixed at the odds quoted.

Interbet TAB

Tote betting offers punters the chance to win very large prize pots from relatively small stakes, which is why it’s so appealing to many punters. Interbet is partnered with the official South Africa TAB tote, thus providing a premium choice of betting pools.

Horse racing enthusiasts can tote bet on races from South Africa, UK, Hong Kong and Australia. Each day there are different tote betting options available. To see what the current options are, just click on the Tote TAB link in the header menu. This will list the various race cards with the betting pools listed beside each race, like jackpot, bipot, all to come, pick 6, pick 3, place accumulator, swinger, double, trifecta, quartet, exacta, win, place and each way. There is a useful ‘?’ icon beside each pot which explains what you have to do to enter and win.

Interbet Tote

Other pool betting options include tote soccer betting. There are several different pools you can join. Soccer 6, Soccer 10 and Soccer 13 Xtra use daily fixtures to create a coupon in which you must select home win, draw or away win for each match. Soccer Score is 10 matches and you are required to choose between: no team to score, one team to score or both teams to score (btts). Further options are Soccer 1 and Soccer 4 where you must predict the winning margin for the selected matches. Lastly, there is also a series of tote betting pools for rugby and boxing available, too.

Interbet Mobile App

Many South Africans prefer to use a mobile device for online betting and Interbet makes it easy by providing a platform ( specifically designed for smaller screens.

Its design is simplistic which helps improve page loading time and it is responsive, so it works well for punters who like to bet live. The only drawback of the Interbet mobile platform is that it doesn’t offer the Exchange Zone. However, you can still revel in the vast amount of tote betting pools and fixed odds betting markets that are neatly laid out on the homescreen menu ready for you to attack.
