TAB Website Issues

Telephone betting is fully functional

Software issues are being experienced on play.tabonline.co.za that programmers are working on to resolve soonest.

TAB telephone betting, however, is fully functional – call 0861 000 822 to place your bets.

Should your online account have been locked, please contact TAB Customer Care on 0861 444 822 or email [email protected]

The current problems with the site have resulted from the implementation of several overdue and much-needed software upgrades. These upgrades were thoroughly tested before installation, but once deployed in a live environment caused the system to fail.

TAB apologises to all customers for any inconvenience caused.

    Mr. Editor, your publishing and designer skills are admirable and appreciated.

    The only issue with your images is that it should be an abacus or something from Astrix days…maybe Dogmatix ?

      Thanks William
      These images are unwitting flattery? 🙂

    4Racing hold it right there.Not a few days after taking over.
    It was a couple of years down the line before Phumelela hit us with—
    The operation was a success but the patient died.

  4. I am looking at the results and dividends on Tabonline for today’s racing, they make the Summer Cup quartet dividend look puny. I just caught some swingers on the 7th race at Uttoxetor and they paid over R1000 each with the two favourites – Christmas come early!!!! (wishful thinking ????) hopefully they are able to sort this mess out asap at a time when racing is trying to attract new customers and rebuild trust with the old ones

    I can log on to my bookie website 24/7 but the tote locks their system at midnight.

    I can reset my password easily with my bookie but the tote requires me to fill a form and wait for someone to respond.

    I can mix venues on my multiples but the tote restricts my ATC to a single venue.

    If I hit withdraw on my bookie account the funds are in my account within an hour but the tote let’s me wait 2-3 days.

    With my bookie I can gooi 5 horses in a single ticket and tick Yankee or just trebles, the tote has no such facility.

    My bookie gives me a free voucher now and then but I’ve never received a free a voucher from the tote.

    The tote allows me to cancel my bets online my bookie doesn’t.

    My tote bets-statement looks more user-friendly than my bookie statement.

    The tote offers me free computaform and tabsheet online but my bookie doesn’t.

    The tote has no limits on my winnings but my bookie limits me.

    Kenny Masilela, TAB had a loyalty program for account holders but it was really goor: 100 points for a R40 bet and when you got to 5000 points they gave you a R5 voucher.
    This seems to be replaced now by a cashback system whereby you get back 10% of your last 10 deposits (from an ad I saw on Tellytrack).
    Not sure how it works but I think theres a new field added to the balance option on the menu after yesterday’s changes, which says “credit limit”. The cashback might appear there once you get to your tenth deposit.
