Betway Terms and Conditions in Full

You can also find a full list of Betway terms and conditions for the sign up bonus on the Betway SA website underneath "Promotions"

  2. The Betway Welcome Offer gives customers a Sign Up Bet of R25.

  5. The R25 Sign Up Bet can only be claimed once per new customer
  6. The customer must pass FICA verification through Betway’s automatic verification tool at the time of registration. Should the automatic verification fail, Betway will request FICA documents and only once the customer’s FICA documentation has been verified will the R25 Sign Up Bet be awarded to the customer.
  7. Once a customer has registered with FICA approved details they will be sent a One Time Pin (OTP) to the mobile number they registered with Betway. Customers need to allow for at least 30 minutes for the OTP to be sent. Once the OTP is received the customer needs to visit and enter the OTP in the Voucher Claim Box to claim their R25 Sign Up Bet. Qualification of the Sign Up Bet is entirely at the discretion of Betway and the OTP will only be sent once the customer FICA approved account has been verified.
  8. Standard terms and conditions apply.
  9. The Sign Up Bet doesn’t have any hidden requirements. Customers who place bets using their Sign Up Bet will receive any and all winnings (minus the initial Sign Up Bet stake) and that amount will reflect in their cash balance – ready for another bet or to be withdrawn upon meeting withdrawal requirements.

  1. Betway Account: This is the account that you registered with Betway.
  2. The R25 Sign Up Bet can only be used to place wagers on sports events, and cannot be transferred, substituted or exchanged. Any available Sign Up Bet balance cannot be withdrawn.
  3. Any winnings from the R25 Sign Up Bet cannot be withdrawn until a customer has made a minimum deposit of R25 and wagered the deposit of R25 in full.
  4. Betway's general Terms and Conditions shall apply to all interactions with Betway, and must be read in conjunction with all other terms and conditions relating to promotions. In the event of a conflict between these Sign Up Bet Terms and Conditions and Betway's general Terms and Conditions, Betway's general Terms and Conditions shall prevail.
  5. A Sign Up Bet is available for a maximum of 180 days from the date that the Sign Up Bet was credited to your Betway Account. If not used, your Sign Up Bet will automatically expire after 180 days and will be removed from your Betway Account (unless specified otherwise in specific promotional terms).
  6. Your Sign Up Bet must be used in its entirety as a single bet. This single bet can include single selections or multiple selections in one bet.

  9. Example: If you wager R25 using your Sign Up Bet, with odds of 4.0, the potential return would be R100, since the R25 wagered is a Sign Up Bet credited to your Betway Account, only the winnings of R75 will be added to your Betway Account.
