Rabona Mobile App & Registration


Rabona, a new and high-tech sportsbook, started offering its full range of services in South Africa in 2024. Particularly focused on mobile betting, it boasts extensive coverage of some of the country’s most beloved sports like rugby, cricket, soccer, and horse racing.

The Android app is a strong suit of the venue, providing fast, low-bandwidth access to the full range of local and international sports. This means that punters can jump into betting on their favorite sports with ease, anytime and anywhere. The inclusion of transactions in ZAR further bolsters the operator’s position in the local market.

The mobile betting experience however isn’t just about sports. It brings the thrill of live betting to your fingertips, as well as a fully-fledged online casino. Among 3,000+ games available for Android and iOS, players can explore titles from top-tier developers among which are forerunners like NetEnt, Pragmatic Play and YGGDRASIL. Lastly, Rabona abides by all industry regulations, operates with a valid permit, and implements a number of robust security measures to make sure its app is as safe as it gets.

Android App Download & Betting on iOS

When it comes to accessibility, Rabona only offers a native app for Android. An iOS counterpart is yet to be released. Even so, however, iPhone and iPad users get similar performance and identical offerings on the mobile website of the sportsbook mobile website.

The Android app is readily downloadable from the ZA version of Rabona’s website, requiring a manual installation. Users need to first visit the Rabona website on their Android device and download the application file via the QR code. Then, follow the typical manual installation steps, which include adjusting the device settings to permit installations from sources other than the Google Play Store.

In regard to the iOS experience, given the lack of an app, punters will have to access Rabona’s offerings through a Progressive Web App (PWA). A convenient workaround given the situation is for users to bookmark the sportsbook on their Safari browser for quick, one-tap access. This is done by tapping the share icon of your iPhone/iPad and selecting Add to Home Screen.

The app is compatible with Android devices running version 5.0 or newer, meaning it will work on any phone or tablet. On the iOS front, the PWA works optimally with iOS 11 and higher, although more recent versions of iOS will improve the user experience. Moreover, Rabona’s mobile site is designed to be fully functional across various contemporary web browsers, offering an alternative for those who prefer not to download the app.

Rabona’s mobile betting experience is a blend of sports wagering and casino gaming, making it appealing to a wide range of South African punters.

The 2,500+ array of slots encompasses both traditional and contemporary designs, all optimized for optimal performance on Android and iOS devices. The attention to detail in graphics demonstrated by the game vendors and the great design of the app creates an engaging and fluid gaming experience on smaller screens.

The table games segment is equally robust, featuring classic games such as blackjack, roulette, baccarat, and poker. Developed by industry leaders like Playtech, the games maintain the essence of classic casino play while being adapted for the mobile format. Of course, the mobile casino is packed with live games as well. Most of them are the work of Evolution Gaming, offering top-tier quality and a vast selection of games and variations.
