Sportsbet review

Established in 1993, Sportsbet has been operating in Australia for over 20 years. They have withstood the test of time and not only survived, but flourished. Today, Sportsbet is the largest corporate bookmaker in Australia. The Irish powerhouse bookmaker Paddy Power invested in the company back in 2009; a few years later, they upped the ante and completed the acquisition of Sportsbet, in an effort to further expand their reach into the Australian betting market. Flutter Entertainment then bought out Paddy Power and is now the owner of Sportsbet.

Currently, Sportsbet is headquartered in Melbourne, Australia and boasts over 250 employees. They have effectively established a brand that speaks the language of Australian punters, which along with their penchant for delivering value-add member features, has contributed markedly to their success in Australia.

There are numerous benefits associated with a Sportsbet account, these include: free live streaming of sports, a horse racing black book service, tipping competitions, and fair-go refunds.


Both the Sportsbet app and android provide an efficient and pleasurable experience for members. More than 50% of member transactions are placed using these devices.

Eligible members can participate in bet promotions from Sportsbet each week. These promotions are not available to NSW and WA residents.

Sportsbet provide an array of horse racing and sports betting products. Racing goers will rely on the Top Fluctuation and Tope Tote Plus to deliver maximum value. Asute punters should recognise that unlike major rival Ladbrokes, they do not provide the Best of the Best product.

Years ago, Sportsbet lagged behind their competitors in terms of delivering the best value odds. This is no longer the case, their AFL odds are as competitive as any other bookmaker.

Don’t use SP

Happy to take your money when you are losing but as soon as you start wining they will set bet limits and there site starts glictching. I have never had an issue with the TAB. Would not recommend to a friend.

Astoundingly fair policies

Sportsbet understands the struggle and frustration of the punter who has been robbed. They have gone above and beyond to ensure fairness and to “give punters a fair go,”. Their justice refunds payout members that are victims of extraordinary circumstances, such as a Brownlow Medal favourite becoming ineligible due to suspension. They even pay out cash early for bets that are considered a lock, sometimes at the expense of their bottom line, if the selection subsequently loses. Add these policies to the industry standard protest payouts on racing bets, and you have one heck of a fair go with Sportsbet.
