In February 2015, Sportingbet Australia was taken over by global bookmaking giant William Hill. The business remains the same but the name has changed, as has the deposit offer. All existing customers of Sportingbet will become clients of the new William Hill brand.
Whilst it’s a sign of the times that we lose an Australian bookmaking favourite, it’s good news for punters. Sportingbet were renown for offering some great promotions to their members. This is continuing with William Hill Australia.
Highlights of the former Sportingbet brand
RACING BET TYPES
Sportingbet offers a full range of exotic bet types for punters along with their MaxiDiv and TF (Top Fluc) bet options. Whilst offering a good suite of products, Sportingbet are continually looking for ways to appeal to the punter, other leading online corporate bookmakers are now offering better value racing win products to Australian customers so it remains to be seen if Sportingbet up the ante in this area.

SPORTS BET TYPES
Sportingbet excels with a wide array of sports markets and; varied number of betting options available for each of those markets. The odds on offer are generally of very good value, but the line betting and margin bet options are second to none, making Sportingbet a sound choice for sports betting. Sportingbet offers existing customers regular promotions and rarely let a feature event go by without offering a unique market for that event. Bookie Guide highly recommends Sportingbet for keen sports betting enthusiasts.
