BetBeast is one of the new casinos launched by Dama NV, a Cyprus-based operator, at the end of last year. It covers traditional and live dealer online casino games and sports betting, and it has bonuses for both bettors and casino players. 

The site was launched at the beginning of 2024. It has a mobile-first design, which makes it a pleasure to use on a smartphone. Dama NV has a good track record, with brands like Jackpoty Casino, mBit, and Cobra Casino in its portfolio.

Veteran players will certainly appreciate the casino’s loyalty and VIP scheme. These come with benefits ranging from deposit matches to cashbacks and a multi-tier VIP program with prize drops and exclusive events.

BetBeast offers both online casino games and sports betting. It covers everything from soccer and rugby to surfing, hockey, and futsal. Its casino offers an impressive library of over 5,000 slots from 70+ game providers, crash games, instant games, and even a decent collection of live dealer games.

BetBeast Bonuses and Coupon Codes

BetBeast doesn’t have many bonuses listed on its homepage but they are consistent. It covers betting and casino games, too, so it has welcome bonuses for both of them.

BetBeast Casino Welcome Package

Opening an account at BetBeast Casino gets you a welcome package with four deposit matches on your first four deposits:

DepositBonus %Maximum amountMinimum deposit
1st100%R5,000R200
2nd50%R12,500R200

In total, you can claim R50,000 in deposit bonuses on your first four deposits

Welcome Bonus Terms

  • The bonuses come with a playthrough requirement of 40x the bonus amount

  • You need to complete the wagering requirements within 7 days

  • The maximum bet you can use to complete the wagering requirements is R50

  • The maximum win you can withdraw from a deposit bonus is R50,000

  • Not all games contribute equally to the requirements:

    • Slots contribute 100%

    • Table games, video poker contribute 5%

    • Live dealer games do not contribute to the wagering requirements

    • There is a list of 280+ games that do not contribute to the wagering requirements - make sure to read it before playing

  • You can cancel the bonus at any time by contacting BetBeast customer support. This means that the bonus and any winnings generated using it will be forfeited from your balance.

Sports Welcome Bonus

If you’re in it for the sports, you’ll also get four deposit matches - the percentages and amounts are smaller, but the requirements are also different. You can claim four risk-free bets with a total value of R10,000, as follows:

DepositBonus %Maximum amountMinimum deposit

You can use the risk-free bets you receive on events in the Sports and Live Bets section with odds between 1 and 2. There are three types of free bets: Only Win, All Win, and No Risk. Cashout and Auto Cashout are not available for these bets.

Bitcoin Experience Welcome Bonus

You can claim a welcome bonus if you deposit in cryptocurrency, too. The percentages across the deposits are the same. You can claim a total of 0.3 BTC on your first deposits in the BetBeast casino and sportsbook.

BetBeast Loyalty Club and VIP Scheme

Every deposit you make and every real-money wager you place at BetBeast earns you loyalty points. Depending on the number of points you generate, you can reach various Loyalty Levels. Each of these comes with benefits:

  • Levels 1 through 19 get:

    • Free cash

    • Free spins (over 150)

    • Deposit bonuses

  • Levels 20 through 39 get:

    • More free cash and free spins

    • Weekly 50% deposit bonus

    • 5% weekly cashback

  • Levels 40 through 50 get:

    • Even more free cash

    • Deposit bonuses with higher values

    • 7.5% and 10% weekly cashback (for level 50+)

For truly exceptional players, BetBeasts has an invite-only VIP scheme, too, with benefits that exceed everything else. The VIP scheme itself comes with levels, and increasing perks and prizes for each:

  • Deposit bonuses of increasing value

  • Prize drops and free spins

  • Personalized offers and birthday bonuses

  • For Platinum and Diamond levels, personal account managers, invitations to exclusive events, and an increase in withdrawal limits

Network Promotions

Network promotions are prize drops and tournaments in which the games of a specific game provider participate. BetBeasts has two of them, both with fabulous prizes up for grabs:

  • Wazdan’s Mystery Box has a prize pool of 5 million euros (around R97.5 million). The pool is divided into Mystery Boxes worth 100,000 euros (around R2 million) each. While playing the participating games, you can trigger one of the boxes in play, and be paid in cash.

  • Drops and Wins is a combination of a tournament and a prize drop from Pragmatic Play. Both of these have their own prize pool of millions of euros. In the tournament, the player with the highest win ratio wins a hefty prize. All this while any participating game can drop a random jackpot at any time.

BetBeast Casino Game Library

BetBeast has an impressive collection of over 5,000 casino games from over 70 game providers. Unfortunately, not all of them are available in South Africa. And, since the casino won’t filter out the games you can actually play on their site, you might stumble upon games that are not available here.

BetBeast Slots

We counted 5,307 slot machines over at BetBeast… but as we said, there are probably many that are not actually playable in South Africa. Unfortunately, they are not categorized so you have a ton of trial and error ahead of you until you find the games you like.

There are over 900 jackpot games available (with the same caveats, of course). We especially liked:

  • Super Lion Megaways by Skywind

  • Burning Hot by Amusnet

  • Road Rage by NoLimit City

BetBeast Table Games and Live Casino Games

There’s a bit of a mix-up in BetBeast’s game library among table games and live dealer games. If you access the “Table” category, it will list them both. This makes it a bit harder to navigate.

BetBest has 46 live dealer games covering the classics - roulette, blackjack, and baccarat - as well as some more exotic game varieties, like Teen Patti and Sic Bo. The games come from some of the top providers across the world:

  • Beter Live

  • Skywind

  • Swintt

  • Amusnet Live

  • Tom Horn Gaming

On top of these, the casino has more than 100 RNG-powered table games and speciality games, from video poker and blackjack to Red Dog, Caribbean Stud Poker, Rocker Rice, and Pontoon Blackjack.

Deposit and Withdrawal Methods at BetBeast

BetBeast supports close to 100 deposit methods in Fiat and cryptocurrency, but only 14 are available in South Africa in Rands. The casino doesn’t perceive any fees for the deposits made - but the payment processors might. Make sure to clarify this before choosing one.

There’s not much information available about the withdrawal times and possible fees on the BetBeast website. Most payment methods do involve transfer fees, though. Check with your payment processor of choice for details.

The cryptocurrency deposits at BetBeast are processed through CryptoProcessing, a cryptocurrency payment processor and gateway based in Estonia. The company has been around for a decade and works with some of the big names in the iGaming industry. 

To make a deposit, you need to:

  • Log into your BetBeast account

  • Click or tap the “Profile” icon (👤) to access your menu

  • Select “My Wallet”, then “Deposit”

  • Choose the payment method you prefer

  • Follow the on-screen instructions.

The list of available withdrawal methods is shorter but still covers quite a few that support Rand payments.

BetBeast on Mobile

BetBeast works great on smartphones and tablets. It feels like it’s a mobile-first casino because it looks better and more usable on the small screen of a smartphone. 

It doesn’t have a native smartphone app but it’s fully compatible with any mobile browser, no matter if it’s Chrome, DuckDuckGo or Samsung Internet. And if you want to access it faster, you can simply install a shortcut to it on your phone’s home screen:

  • Visit the BetBeast website on your mobile browser

  • Open the hamburger menu (☰)

  • Select “Add to Home Screen”

How to Play at BetBeast on Mobile

  • Open your mobile browser and type “betbeast.com” in the address bar

  • Or you can access the casino using the shortcut you just created

  • In the top right corner, tap the “Profile” icon (👤) to register or log in

  • Make your first deposit and claim all the appropriate bonuses

  • Start playing for real money

BetBeast App

Surprisingly enough, you can install a BetBeast app on desktop computers by visiting the menu and clicking “Install BetBeast App”. This will install a container for the BetBeast website on your desktop that you can use to access the casino directly. 

However, it doesn’t have a native Android or iOS app that you could install on your phone. You’ll have to make do with the shortcut on your home screen.

Bottom line: Should you play at BetBeast

BetBeast is an international casino and betting platform with all its upsides and downsides. It has an impressive library of games, many of them not available at other South African casinos. But the fact that they’re not filtered by availability makes playing here a bit of a guesswork, which can be annoying.

We would’ve loved to see some more bonuses listed on the website. Don’t get us wrong - you’ll get plenty of incentives by email, but somehow we felt the Promotions page was a bit empty. 

Overall, we like the BetBeast Casino’s minimalist design, simplicity, and game variety, and its bonuses are not bad either. If you’re looking for an offshore casino open to South African players, you should at least give it a try.
