Looking for something different? YesPlay is a betting site for lotteries. They don’t offer the usual mirror of the prize tiers and players can leverage their potential winnings with the amount of their bet. They use a large list of different lotteries around the world for betting – some of which I hadn’t heard of. The only downside is you must be a resident of South Africa to play here.
Games at YesPlay.bet
Have you heard of India JALDI 5/36 or Lithuania’s JEGA 6/30? How about Hong Kong Mark 6/49 or Russia’s Gosloto 6/45? These are just a few of the 51 different lotteries you can bet on. There are the usual UK, EuroMillions, US Powerball, and Mega Millions plus Australia, NZ, and Canada’s lotteries. Each has their own prize tier depending on whether they use bonus balls or not.
How to Play at YesPlay?
Players bet on the results of officially published lotteries. What makes this interesting is you don’t have to get all the numbers correct to win the jackpot and what you win depends on how much you bet. There are two types of prize tiers – one for the lotteries that have bonus balls and one that does not. On all the lotteries, you can bet on predicting 1, 2, 3 or 4 balls. Then you can also bet on only the bonus ball, whether the bonus ball is going to be high or low, and odd/even. It’s a minimum of R1 to play though the more you bet, the more the winnings factor up. As an example, if you choose to play R5 on betting on one number and the prize is listed as R12, if you get that number you win R60.
Who Can Play at YesPlay.bet?
This isn’t for international players around the world. Players must have a South African residential address and bank account. Keep in mind, you must be able to verify you’ve been at that address for at least 3 months. To sign up, you also need to provide a copy of your South African ID or passport. Oh, and you must be 18 years or older.
YesPlay and Getting Your Winnings
Players have 90 days to claim their winnings. Winnings under R25,000 are paid into your account. Any winnings R25,000 or more are only paid to your bank account. Withdrawals take 2 business days to process. Tax may be applicable depending on the province you live in and are deducted from winnings.
Bonuses and Referrals
First-time players get up to R100 refund if you lose placing your first bet. Refer a friend who opens an account, puts R20 into it and places 3 wagers and you get R50 credit to play.
Getting In Touch
YesPlay offers telephone numbers, a snail mail, and email address. They are quick to get back by email. They are licensed by the Western Cape Gambling and Racing Board in South Africa.
The Bottom Line at YesPlay.bet
I like this site. It’s an interesting chance to win using international lotteries without having to hit all the numbers. The player decides how much he/she wants to bet on what. This isn’t a site that you’re going to win a mega jackpot unless you really go crazy on what you are betting – but you can do it.

Only for South African Residents
This site gets a thumb’s up – for South African residents. The fact you can bet on just one number, or odd/even on the bonus ball (where the lottery has one) and win cash adds an interesting element of gaming.
