History of the sportsbook

The opening of the first branch in Durban resulted in the launch of its first website in 2006, followed by the creation of the mobile site in 2009. Thanks to its considerable expansion over the years, the web now has over 80 branches, spread across six South African provinces. The establishment currently features a variety of betting platforms, coupled with many other powerful features.
