Betfair Australia’s sign up bonus is generous, if you’re the type of customer that turns over large betting amounts. Join and deposit, and Betfair will reward you with a complimentary 20% bonus on all winnings during the first 7 days that your account is in operation.

Betfair Australia betting exchange and bookmaker review

Betfair.com.au is unique to the Australian market in that it offers a betting exchange service to its customers. This allows users to back and lay outcomes and trade on events. The beauty of the exchange is that it generally offers better value odds than traditional bookmakers because other punters are creating the odds. Betfair Australia no longer offers a traditional sportsbook bookmaking service.

There are several reasons why joining Betfair can be very useful. Their winnings boost deal is a particularly good one for the serious punter. It guarantees an additional 20% boost on any winning bets during the first week. In keeping with the other Australian bookmakers, Betfair also offers the occasional weekly betting promotions on a range of big sports events. The primary reason for joining Betfair is to take advantage of the higher odds that are available on the exchange. That coupled with the ability to bet that an outcome will lose, are great reasons to open up a Betfair account.

Betfair.com.au’s best of five racing bet type offers customers great value. It guarantees to pay the higher of the best of 3 totes, the official starting price, or the Betfair exchange starting price. The key here is the exchange starting price. Often the price on the exchange trades at a premium to the prices offered by all of the other bookmakers.
