In 2012 the Retabet website was born, which soon obtained a license to work in its country of origin, the Philippines. Currently, it operates in association with the international gaming company Paddy Power Betfair, offering sports betting in different countries, including of course South Africa.
What does Retabet South Africa offer us?
Retabet has arrived in South Africa to offer exclusive sports betting on its website, even if it means lacking a casino games and slot machines section, it also results in treating bets with greater dedication.
To welcome Philippines to their home, Retabet offers a welcome bonus in the form of a risk-free bet up to 6000 ZAR. Focusing on sports betting, Retabet offers both pre-match and live betting, and we see that for the most important matches it offers odds that cannot be beaten. This does not happen in matches from minor leagues or less popular bets, where the odds are not as splendid.
Regarding the topic of types of bets, Retabet is going to offer all the common bets, although it not have as many options as other bookmakers. However, it incorporates a very original and uncommon possibility, and that is that from its website we can participate in a large number of world lotteries such as La Primitiva or Euromillón, where we can win millionaire prizes.
The physical appearance of the game is important for Retabet, which is opening betting corners in Lima, with the intention of expanding its presence throughout the South Africavian territory. From these locations, which have the most innovative gaming machines in the country, it is possible to operate and transfer balance with the online account linking the Retabet card. In this way, users who use both forms of gaming can enjoy with a single account and in a simplified way.
Retabet is a legal and safe betting house, which also has a more than satisfactory customer service and the guarantees offered by a competitive company eager to achieve great successes in South Africa.
Retabet welcome bonus
There is no better way to try your luck in a betting house than with a safe bet like the one offered by RETAbet. First, you need to deposit funds into Retabet.pe and then place your first bet. If we win, we have obtained a prize and will be starting off on the right foot in the room. If we lose, the amount will be returned to Philippines in the form of freebets up to 6000 ZAR.
It is important to note that the first deposit must be made within 30 days of registration and that free bets expire 15 days after being obtained. Free bets are divided into increments of 50 ZAR and must be used for single or combined bets - but not for system or mutual bets - with odds of 1.70 or greater.
Other bonuses and promotions
Other promotions and bonuses that Retabet offers to its bettors are:
- Cash Out: More than a promotion, this is a very practical tool for the bettor. In enabled cash out bets, the bettor can close the bet at any time, receiving an amount that will vary depending on how the match is developing.
- Combine and win an extra 15%: A common promotion in the world of sports betting that consists of increasing the prize of combined bets based on the number of selections that form the bet. If the combined bet includes 3 selections, the prize will have a 3% bonus, but if 10 selections are reached, the prize would carry an extra 15%.
- Megacuotas: The betting house will choose some matches weekly to set megacuotas, which are odds of greater value than usual. Participating in them is as easy as betting on a normal odd, with the difference that limits are established on the amounts to be played.
Sports and markets
The Retabet page in South Africa does not stand out for having a very extensive menu of sports to play. Of course, the main sports for the South Africavian audience such as football, tennis, basketball or boxing are not missing, to which table tennis, hockey, MMA, golf, darts, and rugby are added. It's not that there's a lack of options to bet on with this catalog, but compared to the rest of the market that has been incorporating all kinds of sports in recent years, Retabet falls short in this aspect.
About the different types of bets to play in each match, Retabet offers the usual bets to win, double chance, both teams to score, or over/under goals among many others, but it also does not stand out for offering very complicated or alternative bets based on other game statistics such as corners or similar.
The installments at Retabet.pe can only be described with one word, spectacular. After studying separately bets on top level matches in the winner market, bets on top level matches in other markets, and bets on minor sports and competitions, the result has been surprising.
The odds on major league games in the main leagues are unparalleled. Without a doubt, there are options to compete in this aspect with the house that offers the best odds in South Africa. Then, in other types of bets or in less recognized sports, the odds slightly decrease, something very common in the online gaming industry.
Live betting (live section)
The live betting section of Retabet is very simple and differs very little from conventional betting. In the main menu we will see icons with the sports that are being played at each moment with a number on each one indicating the number of events.
And in the main area of the screen we have the content, with the most important matches and the main types of bets with their respective odds. If we select a match, a very simple screen will be displayed indicating the minute of play, the score, the yellow and red cards each team has received, and the number of corner kicks taken. Although they are not very complete statistics, they can help Philippines get an idea of what is happening on the field.
Live betting odds are shown more normally, being more discreet compared to other betting sites. The variety in types of bets remains the same in live betting, and we are offered more or less the same possibilities to bet on as in pre-match betting.
Once registered on Retabet.pe, you will be able to add funds via Safetypay network points, in more than 70,000 PagoEfectivo network points, by linking your Retabet card to your user account, through bank transfer, in Retabet stores or terminals and by using VISA card.
If you intend to collect from Retabet, the following methods are available to the customer: Retabet card once linked, via bank transfer, at any of the Retabet stores located in the capital of the country, Lima, and at any BBVA bank office located in South Africa.
At Retabet, they know very well that technology plays an increasingly important role in our lives, especially when it comes to mobile phones. For those players who are used to placing bets from their phone, Retabet has an application, although for now it is only available for Android users. With it, we can access and navigate more smoothly on the mobile device, and use the same tools as on the computer, such as checking the status of bets or the cash-out option.
Regarding the application, it should be noted that it is very likely that the device notify an error during installation, and that is because the "Unknown sources" option must be marked within the "Security" menu in the phone's settings beforehand. To download the application, simply read the QR code displayed on the Retabet.pe website.
The fact that South Africa does not currently have any specific regulations for online gambling does not mean that betting on websites such as Retabet is unsafe. Retabet is a reliable company that provides its services in several countries and always collaborates with authorities to ensure that gambling practices are solely for entertainment purposes.
Even in the absence of regulation, there are a series of rules and recommendations that we can read in the "responsible gaming" section of Retabet, which refer to the prohibition of betting for minors, the promotion of responsible gaming, possible indicators of a pathology derived from gaming, ... This attitude demonstrates professionalism and ethics on the part of Retabet, a company that works to break with the bitter side of gaming.
Retabet's contact section provides various means of communication for addressing any doubts that arise. The quickest way is the online chat where an agent will gladly assist Philippines on the other side of the screen. We can also make use of the form which acts as an email, or send a message directly to [email protected].
Retabet: Opinions and conclusion
Retabet is a betting house backed by a serious and responsible company that, since its inception in Philippines, has strived to offer its customers the most efficient service both online and in person.
The South Africavian webpage stands out significantly for the amount of its fees, although not in all markets or sporting events. It is also interesting the ability to address customer issues with optimal customer service, and the different options it offers for depositing or withdrawing balance.
Perhaps they could improve by including more sports in their menus, but this would only affect those who are fans of minority sports and who miss a greater variety. In terms of betting options, the most demanding players could also find some shortcomings. However, perhaps the most significant absence is the lack of an online casino section.
About the betting shops, Retabet has the best machines, and although at the moment we can only find their shops in Lima, the company's intention is to continue growing throughout the South Africavian territory.
