BOOKMAKER.COM.AU REVIEW

Still a relative newcomer to the Australian bookmaking industry, Brisbane based bookmaker.com.au has enjoyed positive growth since opening its doors back in early 2012. The business is regulated by the Northern Territory government, and therefore is a licensed Australian betting agency. Bookmaker.com.au was acquired by the Ladbrokes Australia group in 2013 and along with Betstar, is one of three brands now operating under the Ladbrokes banner in Australia.

The Ladbrokes backing completes for many what was the missing link. Bookmaker.com.au offers a top value bonus bet to new account holders. In addition to this, it offers horse racing punters the Best of the Best betting and many other high quality bet types. There are weekly promotions on offer, especially during the hectic Spring months, and the website is amongst the most attractive and easy to use in the industry. There are not many negatives, previously the naysayers pointed to their lack of reliability and credibility but the Ladbrokes investment all but quashes those concerns. If there is one chink in the Bookmaker armour, its the lack of regular sports promotions when compared to the most competitive Aussie bookmakers in this space, like CrownBet. Then again, if it’s that hard to find negatives, you should know that you’re onto something good. Bookmaker.com.au is recommended by Bookie Guide.
