Over R300 million paid out in winning bets every month!

Go racing with Phumelela and TAB or Betting World and get your chance at a share of the over R300 million paid out in winning bets monthly!

Horseracing is fabulous entertainment with hundreds of opportunities to win daily! Over 450 race meetings are held in South Africa annually and you can also bet on thousands of overseas races, including the cream of British racing daily and the top events from a host of countries including Australia, Dubai, France, Hong Kong, Singapore and the USA. TAB offers a range of pools bets on horseracing, soccer and rugby. With pools betting the payout is determined by dividing the pool (after taxes and commissions have been deducted) by the number of winning entries. Hence the payouts change constantly until the pool is closed when the race or match begins. Betting World offers fixed-odds betting, in which the odds are fixed at the time you strike the bet. So if you back a horse at 4-1 and the odds subsequently shorten to 2-1 your bet is not affected.

Here’s how to enjoy the action:

At a Phumelela TAB or Betting World outlet

Phumelela operates over 200 TAB branches and agencies and more than 60 Betting World fixed-odds outlets. All racing is shown live on television and there’s a wealth of real-time information to help you win. At selected outlets you can enjoy a meal or snack while you bet. A full list of TAB outlets by province can be found on the "TAB Outlets" page on this site. Go to www.bettingworld.co.za for Betting World outlets by province.

Anywhere in the world with a TAB or Betting World account

All you need is an account with TAB or Betting World. Follow the action live on television on Tellytrack (channel 239 DStv) and take your bets by phone or online on your PC, tablet or mobile. Here’s how to get started:

Telephone Betting

Betting by phone is easy, private and secure and you can use your credit card to deposit money.

How to take your first bet by phone:

  • * Call 0861 444 822. We’ll fax or post an application form to you.
  • * Return the completed form. We’ll call you with the account and pin numbers.
  • * Once you have submitted your FICA documentation (ID and proof of residence), deposit at least R50 into the account - by credit card (minimum R200 deposit), electronic bank transfer or in cash at a TAB.
  • * Take a bet. Call 0861 000 822 and give the operator your account number. You’ll be asked for your pin number and then you can bet. Example: “Turffontein Race 6, R20 Win, No 6.” The operator will call the bet back. Listen carefully because that is the bet which will be keyed into the betting system. All calls are recorded.

The credit balance in your account is always available for betting (subject to the R6 minimum per single bet). When you win, you can withdraw money at a TAB or by electronic bank transfer. Only winnings, not deposits, may be withdrawn.
