PariPesa Global Sports Book
A global sports book and online casino
South African online gamblers are starting to see a crossover between online sports books and online casinos – something that has been quite common in other territories before now. While our local offerings from partners like SunBet and HollywoodBets are starting to introduce online slots and online Live Casino games to the sports book offering, we still have a way to go before we have an all-inclusive online destination for everything online gambling.
The online Casino Review team went looking for something all-inclusive and we found PariPesa, an absolutely gigantic international online gambling destination that is open to South Africans. It has absolutely everything, but be warned, if you are new to sports betting, or to online casinos as a whole, you will be overwhelmed.

Massive – but risky
We love the huge number of choices on offer from PariPesa but there are some glaring problems. Bigger is not always better and, in the case of PariPesa, just made the OCR team incredibly anxious and eager to get out and find something simpler.
It’s just too much.
While we were willing to spend some time exploring and trying it out, the other MAJOR concern that stopped us was the complete lack of any banking methods geared to South Africans. While they state they welcome South Africans, and offer us bonuses in ZAR, the absence of any banking methods that we are comfortable with really put us off.
All in all, not a gambling partner we are comfortable with – even if they are a well-known global player.
