They have influence in over 50 countries around the world and have more than 5500 employees. The site itself was launched in 2000 (according to their site) and has quickly overpassed some of the competitors in the industry. The company is one of fastest growing gambling businesses in South Africa. Something that makes a really good impression for people who don’t know the brand is their effort to keep everything legal. The license by the Western Cape Gambling&Racing Board is a step they took into ensuring customers everything is by the rules and no illegal gambling is involved. They give special attention in providing the users with most recent sports scores, news and offers. Headquarters of the company are located in Cape Town, however, they don’t have any available outlets in the city. Being a part of a large company as INTRALOT the site has a bright future ahead of it and with a bit of experience it will surely go a long way.
Nowadays betting platforms suffer a lot from stuffing their sites with useless information, confusing menus and overflowing with banners and promotions. You’ll be glad to learn that Justbet have not done this and made their site very simple and easy to use for beginners. The interface is intuitive and you can find the menu and wager you need very fast. The Sports section of the site is very rich with sporting events that even the bigger names in the industry don’t have. Soccer, Tennis and Basketball are there along with more unpopular sports as Bandy, Badminton, Floorball and others. There are Special events like the Enhanced Soccer Multiple for example which is also nice. Live betting is available for all major sporting events in Soccer, Cricket and Tennis. For the hardcore Horse Racing fans there is a dedicated page of the site filled with many daily events. The lack of Casino games is not surprising because online casino gambling is banned by the authorities in South Africa. Live betting is available with coverage of many major sporting events. While they don’t have a dedicated mobile app for the platform they do offer a lighter version of the site on their mobile dedicated page. You can reach through every WAP and 3G enabled device to place your bets on the go. As simple as it looks the site offers a lot of entertainment and quality behind it.
