Our Story

Disclaimer: Silentbet is an affiliate site that partners with legit and 100% licensed betting sites. You will not see any pop-up ads on our site since we use affiliate links instead (Ad disclosure).

The website was launched in June 2014. It is covering South African betting since 2018. The site follows an affiliate marketing business model. We partner with betting brands as their affiliates. This means we work in close cooperation with the bookie while keeping a distance. We need to remain unbiased in our reviews. Hence, professionals who share their expertise in sports betting and iGaming join together to deliver high-quality content independent of our affiliate connections.

As you look around the site, you will find that Silentbet is full of up-to-date information about every legal casino and bookmaker. Here, you will find content about bookmakers, poker rooms, and casino studios. Information about bonus codes, betting vouchers, coupons, free bets and tokens is easily accessible.

Reviews are at the heart of our site. Therefore, we only work with sports betting experts and content creators with a proven track record. We strive to bring you honest and unbiased reviews based on research, facts, and real users’ comments.

Silentbet’s team is focused on delivering the best possible iGaming and eBetting content. Visitors to Silentbet are our number one priority.

Our Mission

First and most importantly, our mission is to help our readers find the best casinos and bookmakers online. We try to maximise their engagement and increase their knowledge of betting. Thus, we prepare them for the vast opportunities affiliate marketing has to offer.

Beyond this, it is our aim to establish Silentbet as a betting affiliate brand that is a leader in the market. We thrive to deliver real-time, data-driven reviews via our In-House Lab (see how we test and review betting sites) to outshine other affiliate sites.

Core Values

Commitment and excellence have been our core values from day one. We achieve new heights by delivering an unmatched world-leading product for punters all over the world. With a customer-oriented mindset, Silentbet is never lagging behind the big names in the betting affiliate business.

Unrivalled Dedication to Research

Research! This is one of our core values that leads to excellence in all that we do. We may be affiliated with the bookmakers but that does not mean we will not do our homework. A thorough research is, in our opinion, the key to value when it comes to content.

State-of-the-Art Platform

A team of tech-savvy developers helps us stay on top of the iGaming market with a platform we couldn’t be more proud of. As much as we rave about quality content, presentation of it in a visually appealing platform is at the heart of what makes Silentbet great.

Customer-First Mindset

‘Customer is king’: What this phrase means in today’s online market is still as valid as when this age-old mantra first came to be. Our readers come first. This is at the core of what makes a platform worthy of your trust.

Remaining Objective at All Times

It is true that Silentbet is an affiliate site. And yes, we do monetise the use of affiliate links. However, this does not mean that we do not keep our objectivity in check at all times. We need to be unbiased to deserve the faith our readers have in us.


Why are reviews at Silentbet ZA free?

Reviews on are free because we use affiliate links as part of our business model.

Do bookmaker and casino ratings vary depending on your affiliate commissions?

No, ratings and reviews here are based on unbiased research and real users’ comments and feedback.
