Insurebet (Horse Racing)

Insurebet insures a customer’s bet if their horse is beaten. You will receive your money back as cash if your horse finishes second or third. If you choose either option, you will receive a slightly reduced price.

Non-runners can lead to a Rule 17 deduction.

I am very happy with the INSUREBET option and the TOTE exotics go back to TOTE and the STAKE pot, which is good for racing.

It amazes me that the South African market can sustain the amount of bookies that it does. I am pretty sure its all football and sports. Some comments on the Betway site. The major issue I have is they come late to market with odds on SA racing and no odds are displayed until late in the morning of the raceday ( unless you want to gamble on SP ). The second comment that I have is they are not particularly competitive with their pricing when compared to others.

It seems to me that they will rely on oddities to differentiate themselves from others

It’s good to see that they have joined the most popular racing site ABC so I will have a look at them.

The Insure bet is a great initiative by Betway. The exotic bets going to the tote is brilliant.

Apparently there are so many punters signing with Betway, the FICA process takes a few days.

The service of TAB compared to Betway and Hollywoodbets is so far apart, that I can’t see TAB ever gaining market share, unless these guys help.
They are very aggressive with advertising. There are people betting through BW and HW, that I never thought will even place a bet “Boere Wed”. Kerk mense!

Must agree. And the sad thing is, HW is privately funded, whereas the TAB is funded by a riskfree pool of available money, and they still can't even get the basics right.

We had a wonderful evening.

The discussion with Clyde, Darren, Daryl was as good as usual but the addition of MDK and Smanga made it a superb evening.

A massive thank you to John and his staff for sponsorship of a high class evening in an excellent venue was much appreciated.

Betway has many exciting markets for the big day.and the site well worth a visit.

The insure bet is certainly a winner.

Look out for the weighted to win show.

You may have to massage a couple of the pick 6 perms to accommodate all the info but certainly worth a viewing.

Good Punting

Been using them for 2 months

But now I've been waiting 3 days for a deposit to reflect.
Rather go to a HW or WSB branch.
Done with online for the foreseeable future

from the trainer on the panel - "the insure bet is a no brainer"

he can't be serious - this is even worse than "cash out"

The insure bet and cash out are both good options.
Gambling is a fun pastime and not everyone needs to win millions.
For some it's just to make a profit and your entertainment is paid for.

Much better to take an e/w at the correct price in the long run.

The insure bet must have given plenty their money back after race 1

Ok, perhaps with a very short price horse. Insure bet can work. Short term.
But I never back a short price horse. Not beneficial to me.

First three races the favorites all ran 2nd so if you had 100 bucks on each of them you still square instead of being 300 down and maybe no more money to play the rest of the day.
Not that I have an account as I seldom bet outright horses but I honestly think it's a good thing especially with our racing where anything can happen most days.
