Both the Pure Bet mobile and desktop sites are pleasing to the eye featuring sleek banners and carousels with high-resolution images. The Pure Bet site's branding is strong with a vibrant colour palette that draws you in.
In the centre of the Pure Bet homepage, there are also icons with quick links to Sports, Promotions, Deposits, BetGames and Pure Giving. Even at a glance, the Live Games available on the site are easily visible.
You can also navigate the site using the menu at the top left, where you'll find a list of available Sports plus icons for Live Games, BetGames, Data (Sports Statistics), Results, Esports, Promotions and News.
Sports Betting Odds and Markets
Pure Bet offers betting on a wide range of popular sports like Soccer, Basketball, Tennis, Rugby, Boxing, MMA, Golf and Formula 1. But there are also markets available for Sports you won't find at many other online bookmakers in South Africa, such as Teqball, Archery and Chess.
Live Betting is available on Pure Bet for many of the same sports where Pre-match markets are offered. Match Tracker helps you keep an eye on the action as it unfolds, while the latest Stats can help to inform your bets.
The selection of Esports available at Pure Bet is comprehensive with betting on matches from games such as CS:GO, Dota 2, LOL, Overwatch, R6 and Starcraft, plus others like Valorant and World of Warcraft 3.
Sports Betting Features
Pure Bet is not packed with loads of features, but they do have the basics to ensure you have a good sports betting experience. Finding matches is made easy with the search function, which allows you to filter by sport, league or date. You can also get the latest results for many sporting events on the site, including Esports and Virtual Sports.
Cash Out is also available on some sports selections, which allows you to get a payout before your bet is settled. To see if this feature is available, go to your profile and then "History" -> "Open Bets" -> "Cash Out"
LIVE MULTI VIEW
Enjoy watching Live Sports while you bet with Live Multi View, which allows you to select multiple matches from the menu and drag them onto the same screen.
Chain Bets are a unique bet type popular in Europe, which are also offered at Pure Bet. These are a combination of single bets which are independent of each other. When placing a chain bet, you'll choose the order of selections but only include a stake for the first one. Your winnings from the first event (if successful) are rolled over and staked on the second event until either your final selection wins or the chain is broken by a losing bet.
When your favourite league is on a break or you just want to bet and get results fast, Pure Bet has all the Virtual Sports for your punting needs. Play Jika Sports games such as soccer and horse racing, or choose from some unique BetConstruct Virtuals like Penalty Kicks and Marble Racing!
Pure Bet Live Games
BetGames fans will be ecstatic with the range of options available at Pure Bet which includes everything. Try your hand at classics like Wheel of Fortune and Lucky 5 or newer titles like Rock Paper Scissors or the Indian card game, Andar Bahar.
Whether you like blackjack or prefer the thrill of money-wheel games like Monopoly, Dream Catcher or Crazy Time, you won't be disappointed when you visit the Live Casino Games lobby on Pure Bet. Have a spin on Lightning Roulette by Evolution or play Ezugi games like Teen Patti, not to mention the sleek Creedroomz games by BetConstruct. No matter your preference, massive bonuses and multipliers are waiting to be won!
