Interbet Sportsbook Review
Interbet is not one of the flashiest or boldest online sports betting sites in operation, but it more than makes up for its average appearance by offering a vast and varied selection of sports betting lines and worthwhile odds. Launched just one year into the new millennium, Interbet.co.za has a licensed issued by the Western Cape Gambling and Racing Board which means it’s reputable, safe and trustworthy.
This South African online bookmaker has a state-of-the-art online and mobile betting platform which is certified by the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS), and protected at all times by the latest 128-bit SSL digital encryption software. This means you can rest assured that all of your personal, financial and betting information is safe and secure, and will never be disclosed to or shared with a third party.
Aimed solely at South African punters, Interbet only accepts and processes South African Rand (ZAR). This is great news for South Africans who have tired of betting at offshore owned and operated internet bookmakers in foreign currencies such as dollars, euros and pounds. In addition, the banking methods accepted by Interbet are all South African-friendly, and include credit cards, bank deposits and EFTs.
Of course, the real appeal of Interbet lies is in its large collection of betting lines on all manner of sports from around the globe and South Africa like horse racing, rugby (union), cricket, golf and soccer, to name just a few. Betting lines are updated constantly at this ZAR sports betting website so you can take advantage of the latest odds and wagering action on your PC, notebook, laptop, smart phone or tablet.

Sports Betting Bonuses at Interbet
While for some unknown reason Interbet doesn’t offer any kind of sports betting bonuses (welcome or otherwise), it does have an attractive reward-focused loyalty programme that is open to all signed up punters. The way it works is you earn Loyalty Points for each bet you make which you can then redeem for R1 in bonus cash for every 1,000 you collect. Best of all, you’ll earn points from your first bet.
There are 4 loyalty club tiers– Club, Silver, Gold and Platinum. Everyone starts off on Club, but it’s only when you reach 30,000 to 100,000 points (over 2 months) that you’ll move up into Silver, 100,000 to 250,000 for Gold, and 250,000+ for Platinum. The higher the tier, the better your loyalty point exchange rates. For instance, you’ll receive 25%, 50% and 100% for Silver, Gold and Platinum respectively.
In other words, for every R1.50 you bet in Club tier you’ll earn 3 points, in Silver tier 3.75 points (25%), in Gold tier 4.5 points (50%) and Platinum 6 points (100%).
