About Play.co.za

Play.co.za have been around for a couple of years now and they have been true trailblazers in how to merge functionality and good looks. And their recent makeover has taken this to a new level. Play.co.za shuffled their cards and dealt out a brand spanking new hand, and it is a winner! They have taken what was already a beautiful online casino and online sports book layout and given it a twist to bring us an updated, modern, and even more intuitive gambling portal with navigation being an absolute delight and the feel being one of comfort and elegance.

Design and Layout

Design intelligence is key at Play.co.za, and the new site is built for ease of play. Large buttons direct players straight to their chosen lobbies, and simplified menus and tabs provide quick reference and use. The main focus areas of the screen are dedicated to what players are looking for—the games and sports markets. This seemingly simple approach has elevated Play.co.za’s offering, setting a challenge for other online casinos that clutter screens with unnecessary elements. The “less is more” philosophy shines through with a genius, highly intuitive layout, designed specifically for players.

The design enhances the comfort of playing at Play.co.za. They have retained their signature purple tones and classy, crisp feel, but the simplified layouts make these features even more striking and the various menus and tabs pop for ease of use.

The Register and Sign In buttons are prominently placed at the top right, with a subtle flash effect to grab attention. The home button leads directly to the main page, while everything else is organized on the left. Simple clicks on Casino, Sports, Useful, Help Centre, and About Us open up these dedicated lobbies.

Once in your chosen gambling section, the menus remain easily accessible and quick to navigate. Whether you’re interested in sports or casino games, Play.co.za puts all your options within easy view and fast accessibility.

How to sign up and register

Registration is quick, easy, and familiar:

  • Click the Register button (it glows for easy viewing!)
  • Enter the required details: email, username, password, name, surname, ID number, DoB, gender, income source, promo code, mobile number, verification code, Ts & Cs agreement.

The verification code is a little different as players are sent a verification code to their chosen mobile number that needs to be entered within a 2-minute time frame to continue.

Log in after players are registered is as simple as clicking Login and entering a username and password.

Games at Play.co.za

It’s all about playing at Play.co.za. A comprehensive online sports book that overs sports, matches, and events from around the world is just the tip of the play portfolio. The online casino is absolutely brilliant with some of the world’s top casino game providers bringing over 1,500 different choices to fans of casino games. The new-look Play.co.za has also brought even more games and providers so players will have a pleasantly tough time choosing their favourites or discovering new ones.

Online Sports Betting

Play.co.za has a great variety of sports markets on offer. South African sports fans will be thrilled to find all their favourites: soccer, rugby, tennis, golf, cricket, motorsport, and more across over 50+ categories. All major local and international events are covered, with some very cool options on eSports and unusual options like beach football, badminton, and table tennis as well.

Play also updates their markets depending on the current evets so checking back regularly will show new and updated options like athletics or swimming as these events are taking place.

Odds are competitive and the choices comprehensive.

Casino Betting

Play.co.za has one of the most impressive online casino offerings across Mzansi. The updated platform now includes even more international Providers and even more games for players to enjoy.

The online and mobile slots portfolio has over 1,000 top class options for fans of the spinning reels. Everything from classic 3-reels to the latest immersive and interactive slots games are available from Providers like Red Tiger and NetEnt. CasinoPlay highly recommends the Guns n’ Roses slot, an epic rock ode to one of the world’s biggest rock bands. Whether you want to explore dusty tombs, play quirky characters, take on the Greek or Viking gods, or get some tunes blasting, Play.co.za has a slot that you can hit on desktop or mobile whenever you want, wherever you are.

Live Casino is another jewel in this sparkly crown. Ezugi, Evolution and Creed Roomz bring all the in-real-life action of the tables straight to your screen with elegance, professionalism, and gorgeous studios. Baccarat, poker, blackjack, roulette, and big game show style games are always popular with South African online gamblers and there are plenty of the more unusual offerings like sic bo, Andar Bahar, and Teen Patti,

A selection of the fast-paced live action Betgames and a great Virtual Betting lobby make up the rest of the casino offering. Of particular interest are the Virtual Games (very different from the eSports players can find on the sports book). Virtual greyhound and horse racing, virtual soccer, and virtual motor racing and cycling are fan favourites but, for a very fun and very enthralling virtual experience, players should really try out Virtual Marble Race – it’s a blast!

Loyalty programme

Play.co.za has a tier-based Loyalty Programme (Bronze, Silver, Gold) that awards points for playing. These points can be redeemed for bonus cash at different percentages per tier.

South African online gamblers will be pleased to see that Play.co.za has a good variety of trusted banking methods for withdrawals and deposits. Remember, all transactions (especially withdrawals) will need a FICA process to be in line with SA banking and gambling regulations.

  • Visa and Mastercard
  • InstantEFT

Withdrawal

  • InstantEFT

Winnings can be withdrawn into a properly FICA’d bank account. Remember, when withdrawing funds, you will be legally required to provide FICA documentation to Play.co.za, including bank details, ID, and proof of address.

Play.co.za does not have an app but the fantastic design and layout works perfectly across the responsive website to bring the platform to life on mobile devices.

The good news is that Play.co.za run regular promotions across the sports book and the casino. The bad news is we wish there were even more! There is a great 1st Deposit Bonus that is available across either the sports book or the casino plus a Welcome Bonus Free Bet for sports fans.
