In February 2015, Sportingbet Australia was taken over by global bookmaking giant William Hill. The business remained the same but the name changed. In 2018, William Hill became BetEasy. Any remaining customers of Sportingbet are now BetEasy members.

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

  • Generous bet offers
  • Great range of Australian sports markets
  • Best variety of sports betting markets
  • Regular promotions for all customers

  • Live betting is not available online due to government regulation
  • Sportingbet is not a betting exchange eliminating ‘lay’ bet possibilities
  • Do not offer a top value racing product

    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.

    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.
