Bookmaker Reviews

Reviews of Australian betting sites are available on a variety of websites and may be utilised to make an informed decision about whether or not to sign up. The fact that so many of them disregard precision is, nevertheless, disappointing.

Since we value accuracy above all else, we carefully examine each component of these bookies to provide you with the most comprehensive evaluations available.

On this page, we'll detail the criteria we use to evaluate these betting services, along with our rationale for prioritising these variables.

Bookmaker Codes

First, in an effort to save you some time since we know there’s a good chance you’re on the hunt for one, we detail all the information relating to the site’s referral codes.

In this section, we’ll let you know what the latest code is and provide guidelines on how to use it in the most efficient way.

Bookmaker Horse Racing Features

Betting on horse racing is one of Australia’s favourite pastimes, so it always gets priority over any other betting products being offered by each site, including sportsbooks or lotteries.

This section is dedicated to giving you the most accurate impression of the horse racing betting experience on the betting site in question.

We’ll let you know whether or not they offer markets for all three racing codes - horse racing, harness racing and Greyhound racing - as well as which betting markets they offer and which betting features are in place to complement the experience.

Bookmaker Promotions

Because of a fairly recent change in legislation across Australia, we’re no longer permitted to list and detail the promotions that are being offered by each of the betting sites we review.

Most bookies do still offer promotions to users, however they cannot be used to entice new customers and are available to all customers regardless of when they created their accounts.

So, in this section, we instead give an overall verdict on how generous we think each bookie is and let you know if we’d sign up for that site if promotions were our priority.

Bookmaker Betting Apps

It’s important for betting sites to make their applications as feature-rich and easy to use as their main PC service.

Considering how sophisticated mobile betting apps have become, Australian betting sites nowadays have few excuses not to provide on-the-go betting services that are accessible from mobile devices like smartphones and tablets.

This section is dedicated to reviewing the application of each site individually so that you know exactly what to expect from the mobile betting experience in particular.

Bookmaker Sports Betting Features

Just like with any of the other factors we evaluate in our reviews, there are many punters who will think sports betting features are the most important element to analyse.

After listing the sports that are available on the site, which sit around the low 20s on average, we’ll look at the quality of the betting markets within those sports.

Then, it’s time to look at the actual betting features which can be used to enhance the betting experience when wagering on sports. We look for features like Cash Out, Bet Builders and Multis options.

Bookmaker Esports Betting

The percentage of the global gambling industry that is devoted to Esports betting is expected to continue rising in the coming years.

Many betting sites, and in turn punters, have realised that betting on Esports can be just as thrilling as betting on regular sports. The difference being that Esports events are much more regular and far more easily accessible for viewing thanks to streaming platforms.

This section of the review looks at any Esports betting markets that may be available and whether or not there is an integrated streaming feature alongside them.

Bookmaker Live Betting Options

Betting on sports while they’re taking place can be an adrenaline-inducing experience and using your sports knowledge to analyse a sporting event and place your bets accordingly can be incredibly valuable.

This is why many punters choose bookies that offer in-play betting, with bookies that offer live-streaming features being the preferred option for many.

These are the two elements we look for in this section of each of our Australian betting site reviews.

Bookmaker Payment Details

Payment methods are another preference-based aspect that might influence a bettor's decision on whether or not to sign up.

With so many options available for online payments in Australia, most Australians have chosen their preferred options by now. There is a considerable likelihood that consumers may go elsewhere if their favourites aren't available, or if they simply don’t have access to the ones that are available.

The most prominent payment methods in Australia are Visa, MasterCard, bookmaker cards, Neteller, PayPal, Skrill, POLi, BPay, Paysafecard, Apple Pay, Flexepin and Cash In. We will list which of these are available for each site in their respective reviews.

Bookmaker Customer Service

Finally, we put the bookie’s customer service team to the test. After all, we have to rely on them if and when we run into any kind of difficulties while trying to enjoy our betting experience.

We check that the betting site’s customer service team is:

  • Easy to contact.
  • Quick to respond.
  • Knowledgeable.
  • Friendly.

If we find the staff to be difficult to get hold of, slow in response, dismissive, robotic, rude or just generally unhelpful, you can bet that we’ll let you know.

This is seldom the case with Australian betting sites, though, which have a reputation for providing excellent customer service.
