Sunbet, the official sports betting partner of the Nedbank Golf Challenge hosted by Gary Player, will give golf fans even more betting options with better odds and more markets at this year’s tournament, which will be held at the Gary Player Country Club from 14-17 November.
The 2019 edition of the Nedbank Golf Challenge features yet another impressive field, with the current and three-time champion, Lee Westwood, returning to defend his title. Other notable former winners making a return include South Africa’s Branden Grace and Ernie Els, as well as Henrik Stenson.
Building on from the successful implementation of international-standard software ahead of last year’s event, punters can look forward to an abundance of betting markets for the Nedbank Golf Challenge that will include the unique “Best Round Of The Day” market, which no other sportsbook in South Africa offers, as well as a new market, “Wire to Wire” (leading from start to finish).
Other popular betting markets include “72-Hole Match Betting” (the player who achieves the highest placing at the end of the tournament, including any playoffs, will be deemed the winner), “Enhanced Double Chance” (bet on whether one of the two named players will win the tournament at enhanced odds), the “First Round Leader” with an “Each Way” option (bet on the first round leader to win or finish the round within the top 5) along with a host of other standard golf pre-event and live betting markets.
Punters will also be able to bet on anything from group betting, threeball bets, top 5 and 10 finishing positions, hole-in-one bets as well as the lowest round of the day and much more.
Golf enthusiasts will once again have the luxury of quick and easy betting at a number of cash betting stations available around the golf course during the week of the Nedbank Golf Challenge, which will be available at the Sunbet Marquee, the Sun MVG Lounge, the Sun International Lounge and the Gary Player Country Club at Sun City.
And Sunbet will be giving away hundreds of promotional free cash bets and double-ups vouchers to go with with the player activations in the food court area as well as the handing out of online Free Bets and cash bets to use at the main Sunbet marquee.
Punters can also bet online at www.sunbet.co.za. Placing a bet is as easy as registering an account, making a deposit and picking a winner.
Apart from the golf, Sunbet also offers online and over-the-counter bets (available at Time Square Casino at Menlyn Maine, Carnival City, GrandWest Casino and Golden Valley Casino) on a variety of sports including rugby, soccer, tennis, cricket, horse racing, boxing and more.
Sunbet offers punters over 100 000 Live-in-Play events annually as well as Action Bets that enable punters to bet on decisive moments such as the next point, scoring method or throw-in while an event is live. These bets are available for a very short timeframe with bets resulted within 90 seconds. Sunbet also features a cash-out option that allows the punter to take an early payout on selected bets before an event has concluded, affording them the opportunity of minimising risk and claiming a profit.
All Sun MVG members have the opportunity of linking their Sunbet accounts with their MVG cards, with each online bet struck at Sunbet counting towards their Sun MVG balance.
