SPORTSBET REVIEW

Sportsbet is one of Australia’s premier online bookmakers. Formed in 1993, the business has satisfied punters needs for over 20 years and continues to deliver a high value and reliable wagering service. Offers like their $500 sign up bonus for new members is one of the reasons why Sportsbet is regarded so highly. They are very proactive in offering regular promotions to their existing customers in the form of free bets, bonus refunds, free tipping competitions and regular promotions. Their racing service is very good despite not offering the best value horse racing bet types. Sportsbet does offer good early bird prices on Saturday meets and feature race days, they also have weekly racing specials like ‘money back refunds’ on certain races if your horse runs second.

    RACING BET TYPES

    Sportsbet offer their customers a full suite of racing products including some great exotic products. There is no need to setup an account with one of the totes as Sportsbet covers all of their products and more. The only pitfall is that they currently don’t offer a top-line racing product like Best of the Best, but they do have regular race day promotions to offset this disadvantage.
