Getting a grip on betting on lotteries at interbet.co.za is a bit confusing. First of all, there is getting past all the betting on sports and the moving parts that flash by. Deep breath. Lottery betting is under “Numbers,” and there is a heap to choose from. This South African betting site seems to pack a lot in. Lotteries include Greece, Ireland, Mauritius, Russia, South Africa, and the United Kingdom. Each game has its options. But hang on – how many lottery options do they offer and how does it work?
Games at Interbet.co.za
Looking at the lottery UK 49s Lunch Time Draw, players can bet on only the bonus ball, pick 1, 2, 3 or 4 balls. This isn’t going to pull in a mega jackpot but does increase the odds on winnings something. Greece Powerball, Irish Afternoon Draw, South Africa Powerball, Mauritius Draw and Russia’s Goslotto Morning D are the other five draws to bet on. There are on options how much you want to bet ranging from Rand 5 dollars up to Rand 200, and a “use bonus bet” which I’m still not sure what that means. This site is very confusing.
Winning with Interbet
It seems that winnings will be paid into your account though I couldn’t find anywhere that outlined this. There is a minimum withdrawal of Rand 100. It appears the money will be transferred within 2 to 3 days. The money has to go into the same mechanism that you deposited money. There is a heap of ways to do this. You’ll also have to provide a copy of your ID, a copy of a utility bill that is less than 2 months old to confirm your address, and I’m still trying to figure out what “free bets may be withdrawn as cash from your account.”
Who Can Play at Interbet.co.za?
Besides the usual you must be 18 years of age or older, people from the US are “expressly forbidden” to play here. There is also mention of players being “restricted to jurisdictions where such is not prohibited by law.”
Who is Interbet.co.za?
This is a company based in Cape Town, South Africa. There are a snail mail and email address, phone and fax number. It’s licensed by the Western Cape Gambling and Racing Board.
Interbet.co.za and What Else
There are a heap of other lotteries listed under their results/payout, but I couldn’t figure out how to make a bet on saying Michigan Fantasy, Florida Lotto or Ohio Rolling Cash. Go to the sports side of betting, and you have the options of soccer, golf, horses and well – a lot of international games.
Interbet and Loyalty
All players start at Club Level. For every Rand 2 made on a losing bet, players earn 5 loyalty points. There are Three levels – Silver (30,000 to 99,999 in 2 months/15,000 maintenance points per month), Gold (100,000 to 249,999 in 2 months/50,000 maintenance points per month), and Platinum (250,000 plus in 2 months/125,000 points per month). It looks like the maintenance points are what keeps your level just in case you’re not playing as much. Okay, so you also earn a percentage increase of points earned (Silver/25%, Gold 50% and Platinum (100%) on the value of your bet. Sounds confusing right? Every 1000 points can be redeemed for Rand 1 dollar to bet on games.
The Bottom Line at Interbet.co.za
Well folks, if you’re into betting and want to include some lotteries, then this might be the place for you to play. For those that like going after that mega jackpot, look elsewhere. Again, this looks like one of those sites that started with sports and added lotteries. It’s not a user-friendly site for lottery play.

This site gets a thumb’s down for lottery play – sorry just too confusing and limited options on what you can bet on in lotteries.
