Betting on sports is a beloved South African pastime. But so are slot machines, table games, BetGames, and number bets. You can find all of these, and then some, at YesPlay. Based in Cape Town, YesPlay Casino excels in providing a complete online betting experience. South African players can enjoy a variety of casino games, including the latest online slots, captivating live dealer games, and extensive sports betting options covering popular local and international sports.

Our expert opinion about YesPlay Casino

YesPlay has been around since 2015. It is run by SA Sportsbook (Pty) Ltd. based on a Western Cape license. YesPlay boasts a robust selection of sports popular among South African bettors, from rugby to cricket. It also has Lucky Numbers and BetGames to spice things up. When it comes to casino games, its offer is somewhat limited - it only has over 350 games from providers like NetEnt, NoLimit City, and Habanero. But it excels at live dealer games, with hundreds of tables available for every budget.

Its bonuses are very limited. Its welcome bonus is for sports bettors - the wagering requirements are prohibitive if you plan to complete them on slot machines. It does participate in Pragmatic Play’s network promotions but it doesn’t currently list any of its own.

If you are looking for bonuses, you might be disappointed by YesPlay. But if you’re looking for games, especially live casino games, to play, it’s the perfect place for you - even with daily win limits.

YesPlay Casino Registration

YesPlay login and registration

Most online casinos and betting sites will ask you to complete a registration form to open an account. YesPlay makes this process easier by supporting registration through the use of third-party accounts. You can register using your:

  • Google account
  • Facebook account
  • Apple ID

Of course, you have the option to register using your phone number, too. Registering to the alternative methods above can make the process simpler by filling in some of your personal information automatically.

To deposit into your account:

  • If you are a South African citizen, you’ll have to submit your SA ID number
  • If you are not a South African citizen, you’ll need to submit a valid passport and proof of residence (a utility bill, store account statement, bank statement, DSTv account statement, or a municipal letter)

To make your YesPlay login easier, you can link your social accounts to your YesPlay account even if you register with your phone number.

  • Connect with your Google or Facebook account or your Apple ID

YesPlay Deposit Methods

YesPlay supports a wide variety of payment methods that you can use to top up your account. It covers everything from prepaid vouchers to VISA and MasterCard and everything in between. You can even deposit into your account at ATMs and Shoprite and Checkers till points. 

As a general rule, the minimum deposit at YesPlay is R20. Depending on the deposit method, this amount can be higher - or YesPlay may charge you R10 extra for your deposit if the amount is too small.

Withdrawal methods

Withdrawing your funds from YesPlay is a streamlined process but the number of payment methods available is a bit restricted. And the number of withdrawals you can request without an extra fee is limited.

Payment methodMinimum withdrawalMaximum withdrawal
ATM WithdrawalsR100N/A
EFTR100R10 million

You can withdraw free of charge via EFT twice a week. For every subsequent withdrawal, YesPlay perceives a fee. 


Before you can do any financial transactions at YesPlay, no matter if it’s a deposit or a withdrawal, you will need to verify your account. YesPlay expects you to submit your identity documents before you can make your first deposit. The documents they require are:

  • South African residents need to provide their government-issued ID
  • Foreigners have to submit a valid passport and proof of their residence

Without verifying your identity, you won’t be able to make deposits and initiate withdrawals from YesPlay.

YesPlay Casino VIP/Loyalty Program

YesPlay doesn’t list any VIP or loyalty programs except for its 10% Cashback scheme.

YesPlay Slots

YesPlay has a collection of 363 slot machines from some of the leading game providers around the world:

Pragmatic Play49
NoLimit City62
Red Tiger Gaming85

The games are arranged in useful categories on the site, filtered by the provider and some of the features like Drops & Wins, Buy Spins, Megaways, and themes, like Classic, Egypt, or even Irish slots. Each game shows its minimum bet, so spotting games for casual play is very easy. 

You'll be happy to know that you can play some of the biggest hits, like Pragmatic Play's Sweet Bonanza at YesPlay Casino.

Casino Games

Live casino games

YesPlay has an impressive collection of live dealer games that you’ll find under the “Casino Games” category. It features titles from the leading live casino game providers in the world:

Evolution Gaming323
Pragmatic Play90

(Note that these are individual tables, not game types)

These, too, are filtered into handy categories:

  • By type (Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat, Dice, Poker, Lottery, Game Shows)
  • By bet levels (1-Rand games, High Rollers)
  • By theme (China, First-person)

There’s a separate category for Hot Picks and Pragmatic Play’s brand-new table game network promotion, Blackjack League.

Note that BetGames titles have their own link in the main menu, too.

Sports Betting

YesPlay covers only major sports like soccer, cricket, basketball, handball, and some others. It lacks the variety of some of its competitors that cover less mainstream or more exotic sports. On the other hand, its odds tend to be slightly better than those of the competitors.

It does offer live updates for the ongoing matches and the option for you to bet on them live. It doesn’t seem to offer live streaming of the events, though. 


YesPlay doesn’t have a separate eSports category. Among its soccer listings, though, you can find FIFA bets on GT Sports or eAdriatic League games, among others. 

Lucky Numbers

YesPlay lucky numbers and lottery bets

At YesPlay, you can bet on more than just sports - it also covers lotteries. It covers everything from South Africa’s Powerball, Lotto Plus, and all other local lotteries, as well as draws from the US (MegaMillion), the UK (49s Tea, Set For Life), Italy, Spain, Ireland, and Poland. It also has “rapid” lottery draws - basically, games of Keno from all over the world. 


BetGames’ live dealer games have their own category. These are a dozen low-stake live games with a low data consumption that make them perfect to play on mobile. Plus, you’ll find Skyward here, the provider’s only crash game

YesPlay Casino Mobile App

YesPlay mobile apps

Google doesn’t allow the listing of South African mobile casino apps in the Play Store. This is why YesPlay’s Android app is not there - it can be downloaded directly from its website. The YesPlay app is listed on Huawei’s App Gallery, and Samsung’s Galaxy Store, too, so you can download and install it from official sources as well. iPhone owners will be happy to know that the YesPlay app is available on the Apple App Store, too. 

The YesPlay app has decent reviews, although it can have issues on some Huawei phones.

YesPlay Casino Terms

The terms and conditions at YesPlay are fair. One of the unusual things we discovered in them is the daily win limit. You can’t keep winnings of over R10 million a day on live dealer games, R2 million on prematch and live bets, and Lucky Numbers bets, R50,000 on Pragmatic Play blackjack tables, and R20,000 on BetGames. 

The terms that apply to the YesPlay welcome bonus are a bit strange, and they favour sports betting. The fact that slots only contribute 10% to the wagering requirement translates to a 70x requirement - but it remains 7x if you complete it on bets and BetGames. This makes the wagering requirement unattractive for casino players.

YesPlay Casino Safety and Security

YesPlay has a good track record when it comes to safety and security. It is licensed by the WCGRB and uses industry-standard encryption to keep your personal and banking information safe. Its platform is provided by CDP Gaming Technology, a South African company with a decade-long history that is well-versed in the needs of local players. 

User Experience

The YesPlay website is all light and cheery - this is perfect for some players but a nuisance to others. And it doesn’t have an option for “dark mode”. Its homepage is a hub for everything gambling, with the top bets, slots, live games, and Lucky Numbers all at hand. 

What we like is the clear and easy-to-navigate user interface, the useful casino game categories, and the straightforward menu. What we don’t like is the rather short FAQ and the Customer Support bot that’s pretty dumb. 

Overall, YesPlay offers a good experience on desktop computers and smartphones as well.

YesPlay Casino Customer Support and Contact

As we already mentioned above, the customer support bot employed by YesPlay is pretty dumb. The FAQ section on the site is decent but could use more details. If neither of these can help you with your issue, you can always contact YesPlay:
