Bonuses and additional promotions
The Socca Bonus is an accumulator promotion where you will get an added bonus to your acca winnings depending on how many selections you make – the more you bet, the more you win! With 2 selections you will get an added bonus of 3% to your winnings, with 5-10 selections you will qualify for a 10% bonus and 21-24 selections you can earn a very generous 50% bonus on your winnings. To take advantage of this offer, each selection should have minimum odds of 1.3.
The Socca Chance promotion is also an accumulator offer but comes in the form of a money back bonus. If you bet on 10 or matches and lose one game, Soccabet will reward you by giving you your initial stake multiplied by 3! Any voided, postponed, or cancelled matches with not be counted towards the Socca Chance bonus and just like the previous Socca Bonus, all selections must have odds of 1.3 or higher. At the time of writing, Soccabet does not offer a VIP or loyalty programme.
Soccabet offers its players a vast selection of options in its sportsbook. You can choose to wager on no less than 17 sports ranging from the popular soccer, tennis, and basketball to the less common snooker, table tennis, and water polo. As you would expect from its name, Soccabet’s more popular sport in soccer with dozens and dozens of leagues available to bet on. Ever wanted to bet on matches in Uganda? Kuwait? Myanmar? Or maybe New Zealand? Well at Soccabet you can do just that!
The number of markets available to bet on within each league is also very impressive. On average in the English Premier League, matches had a whopping 187 markets with an even greater number of submarkets to choose from – including some of our favourites like both teams to score, half with most goals, odd/even goals and Asian handicap. On its website, Soccabet claims to have ‘the highest odds guaranteed.’ To verify if what they are saying is true, we assessed their margins using the odds overround. This is a calculation whereby the percentage probabilities of all the odds winning are multiplied by each other. Logically, this figure should come to 100%, however this does not take into consideration the profits made by the bookmaker. For this reason, any result below 110% is typically seen as being acceptable.
Boasting over 6,000 live matches each month, Soccabet’s live sport offering really is a force to be reckoned with. Players can bet in-play on all the sports previously mentioned in this Soccabet review. You can choose to look at an Overview of all the games currently playing live or an Event View where one selection is expanded to show live updates in more detail with an animated graphic and match stats. What is especially great about this bookmaker’s live betting interface, however, is the ‘MultiView’ feature.
This allows you to keep track on live updates of multiple games at the same time and is perfect for those in-play acca bets. Many of the most popular bookies in the world do not offer this feature so we are really impressed with this one! Conveniently, Soccabet also provides a cash out feature which you can take advantage of when betting in-play to avoid losing all your bets if things don’t go your way. There is no live streaming service on Soccabet.
Soccabet Virtual Play
The Virtual Play section is one of the more advanced to be seen in Ghana with a huge bet market and the all-important Virtual Football League. This VFL is essentially a full soccer season played out in two hours, with matches lasting three minutes. The punter can place wagers on individual encounters or bet on who will win the league and which side will be relegated. In between each match has many bet-markets like who will score next goal, who will be booked second, BTTS (both teams to score), Handicap, under/over and many more.
While VP football is the most popular game to place wagers on, the site also offers bets on tennis, horse racing, and virtual dog-racing. The site also offers a news link that will keep the punters up to date with all relevant data, information and new signings. Most punters will let the odds generator be the main guide, but there are a good few who still like to do their own homework.
Service and customer support
You can contact Soccabet’s customer support through several ways including via email, telephone, Whatsapp messaging, Skype, or social media. The bookmaker’s help section on the website isn’t very detailed and only shows a few screenshots of where to click if you want to register an account and deposit funds. Thankfully though, for any queries you might have, Soccabet’s customer service department is available 24/7.
When we contacted customer support, the representative picked up very quickly and was polite, friendly and gave very helpful and detailed information – so overall this was a very good experience. On Social Media – particularly Facebook – the company maintains a very strong following of users who you can interact and engage with on a daily basis.
There is some uncertainty as to what gambling license Soccabet has or whether it even has a license at all. With regards to responsible gambling, in the company’s ‘about us’ section there are some tips about how you can keep in control of your bankroll. Players also have access to their customer history where a full history of transactions, withdrawals, deposits can be viewed to help keep track of spending. If you are concerned with the amount of gambling you are doing, you can send an email to Soccabet asking them to disable your account for any amount of time that you wish. We always prefer when this process is automated as it can make a big difference to someone with a gambling problem, but given that Soccabet is still relatively new, we think it’s great that they do offer this feature.
If you are looking to bet on the go, Soccabet offers a very good mobile betting experience on its mobile app – which is currently only available on Android devices. It is clear that Soccabet have put a lot of effort into optimising its product for mobile as the all the different sections on the site fit nicely on the screen. It is easy to navigate between the different pages on the app. Soccabet’s mobile app has almost all of the features that are available on the main site, with the exception of the live graphic that shows important updates during a match. Additionally, the mobile app is only available in English.
Other offers and casinos
It should come as no surprise that a betting site with the name Soccabet focuses primarily on sports betting. In addition to its sportsbook however, players can also bet on virtual sports, and a host of other live games including poker, baccarat, lucky 7, and dice duel which are presented by live dealers. The virtual sports section of the site offers virtual football, virtual horse racing, virtual dogs racing, and virtual tennis betting options. Match takes place frequently and you can keep track of the games using the built-in live stream.
The soccabet jackpot is standing at a whopping 1 million cedi and is one of the highest paying out in the country. The site is running two promotions currently with a cash boost dependant on the number of legs in a multi-accumulator wager. Predict between 20-24 correct results and you will receive an extra 50% on top of the original win amount.
We have to say that we are impressed with what Soccabet has to offer. Yes, there are a lot of areas where this bookmaker can improve its services to become much more user friendly and reliable, but the most important aspect of a betting site is the betting process – and we think that Soccabet’s betting process is really is one of quality. The large selection of markets to play on, the quality odds, and the MultiView in-play feature are great components to have and really set the bar high for other bookmakers.
Since they are still such a young site, Soccabet can only get better and with already such a good offering, we think there are many good things ahead for this bookie. We would love to see a live stream, more features on mobile, and proof of a license – to the say the least – but overall if you are looking for a betting experience that you can count on, you should definitely consider Soccabet.
