Welcome back to the Gambler, and today we are going to be taking a look at Purebet in this review. They are a new betting company in South Africa, and they are offering sports betting, Betgames, and a wide variety of casino betting. They run on the tried and trusted Betconstruct software which is similar to the software that you find on GBets. It does look quite different to what you have previously seen though. Currently, they have a 100 percent deposit match, up to R1000 for new customers, as well as a R25 sports bonus. You will need to make a R10 deposit to activate the R25 bonus, so just keep this in mind if you do want to claim that offer. Let’s have a quick look to see what else Purebet have to offer.
The Gambler’s Purebet Review
Purebet has some unique features that you won’t find at many other South African bookmakers. Firstly, we are going to start off with their sports. Their sports betting product is pretty solid and is from Betconstruct, so you can use features like cash out, etc. We have taken a couple of bets on here and they’ve got everything from cash out, boost it, bets, and various different odds. They have various different markets to bet on so you are going to be betting with a pretty solid product if you do decide to sign up with Pure Bets. The odds aren’t the best but they’re also not the worst. They are pretty average and what you would expect to find at most bookmakers. The plus side is that you aren’t going to be ripped off by the odds at least which is a positive in our view.
Live Casino Games
Next in our Purebet review, we take a look at some of the live games they have to offer. They have a great selection which we really like about Pure Bets. If you go into the casino games, they’ve got Evolution which is going to have Lightning Roulette, Crazy Time, Gonzos and a number of other exciting games. They also have Ezugi which is now owned by Evolution so those come packaged together. They also have the Betconstruct games and they’ve got them under the creed rooms so you’ve got a whole other selection of casino games that you can try out.
They have blackjack and swift roulette and a number of different games, ones that you’re not going to find on other bookmakers. The only other bookmaker as you might find these on is GBets. We like the Bet Construct games because they’re not as difficult to find a table if you want to play something like blackjack at a higher stake of between R200 to R500. You are going to be able to find a place at the table immediately and you are not going to have to bet behind anyone or play at some obscure time at the morning to get your bets on.
Jika – Virtual Sports
Moving over to virtual sports, they’ve got Jika sports which we’re sure most punters are familiar with. There is a full selection of Jika sports available on Pure Bet. You also have horse racing , steeplechase, bingo, roulette, table tennis, spin and win, and a number of exciting features for those punters who like their virtual sports. This is definitely a bookmaker to check out because they’ve also got the Betconstruct virtual sports which is something you don’t really see often.
There’s a pretty interesting selection of games on the Betconstruct virtual sports such as marble racings, penalty kicks, virtual ,tennis drag racing and a couple others. There are 8 games in total and we really like what they have done with the previews of the games which you can see of the games before you actually go into them.
Pure Bet has a wide selection of Betgames as you’d expect these days from most bookmakers which is all included at Purebet. You have Speedy Seven, Andar Bahar, War of Bets,
Poker, Baccarat, Wheel of Fortune, Lucky Five, Lucky Six and Lucky Seven, Dice Duel and Rock Paper Scissors. It is fantastic that they’ve got such an excellent variety of these games.
Purebets have said that they are focusing quite a bit on e-sports and they actually have a pretty good esports offering. We did enjoy playing some of these games and there is good selection available covering anything from your favourite esports games such as Counterstrike, League of Legends, Rainbow 6, Starcraft, Starcraft 2 and even Dota 2. We had a look at some other bookies Esports offerings, and Pure Bet had some good offerings compared to the other bookmakers’ esports offerings. If you are into esports, Purebet is probably a good place to have a look at first, as they have said before that they are focusing quite a bit on Esports.
They also offer a live calendar that shows all the upcoming games for the day, whether it is tennis, soccer or any other sport. You can filter by day or by sports type. They also have a results page which shows you all the different results from all the different sports. If you’re not sure if your bet have been settled correctly or maybe you don’t have access to something like Flash Score, you can use this all in one site on Purebet.
Now what are they missing? They don’t have horse racing which is unfortunate. There’s no horse racing available at the moment and we aren’t sure if they are planning to get horse racing, but many betting sites have moved away from horse racing interestingly enough. Similarly, they do not offer lucky Numbers which is disappointing and hopefully they are planning to offer that in the near future.
We are going to take a quick look at some of the deposit methods and what your withdrawal options are. They have Blue Voucher, OTT voucher, OZOW which is an instant eft, Peach payments, CellBux, Pay Gates and One Voucher. There’s a lot of different deposit methods for you to use to top-up your account and a good mixture of vouchers, credit cards, and eft options available.
When it comes to withdrawals, you can choose to receive your money via OTT, or Peach payments which is going to be an eft into your accounts or via CellBux, so there are a good number of withdrawal options here which is great, especially for punters who don’t have a bank account. If you don’t have a bank account, you can withdraw using a voucher and you’ll get a pin sent to your phone which you can take to an ATM and you can withdraw your cash there.
The Gambler’s verdict
Now that we’ve reached the end of our Purebet review we can draw some conclusions. We think Purebet is a pretty decent bookmaker. We are excited about the fact that it’s another Betconstruct bookmaker and we would like to see more of them coming out in South Africa. It is a very good product and it’s something that we think a lot of bookmakers, especially those that are still using this somewhat dated Turfsport software, could really do with an upgrade to the Betconstruct software. We definitely think it’s worth signing up with them as they provide an excellent selection of Betgames, Casino Games, Jika Games as well as Sports betting and ESports. New customers also get a 100% first deposit match bonus, up to R1000 and a R25 sports bonus with a minimum deposit of only R10.
