The partnership between ClickaBet and Cell C will take mobile gaming to new heights in South Africa. Cell C subscribers in Gauteng will have access to online sports betting via ClickaBet.
Both companies confirmed that the pilot would only run in the province of Gauteng. The pilot rollout commenced today and includes 60 Cell C stores in Gauteng. They also confirmed that the national rollout would happen in the coming months.
This partnership sets Cell C apart from other service providers, as it pioneers sports betting as a value-added service.
How does it work?
Currently, punters have access to betting on only soccer, tennis and cricket. However, ClickaBet said they would be adding more sports to the current offering.
Sports betting fans can partake on this partnership by activating a ClickaBet prepaid debit card. The cost of this card is R 75, and it includes R 25 betting credit. Additionally, bettors can look forward to a first deposit match bonus of up to R 2 000!
Naturally, you will need to provide the required documentation to sign up. On to your winnings, you can move it to your prepaid debit card, which is also used for betting. Also, you will be able to withdraw from the website onto the prepaid debit card endorsed by Mastercard. So, you will be able to withdraw from any ATM countrywide!
ClickaBet was launched in 2016, by Craig Venter. Venter is the former CEO of Altron, a company that specialises in Telecommunications, Multi-media and Information Technology (TMT). Altron is the biggest, privately owned joined solutions provider on the African continent. From his background, we can see that Venter was perfectly poised to launch ClickaBet.
The company offers bettors simple and secure sports betting. In other words, it is an innovative punting platform for the tech-savvy.
