Sportsbet Review

Sportsbet.com.au is one the biggest players in the Australian bookmaking industry. They benefit from a strong brand and reliable reputation. They offer a $501 free bet deal to new customers, whereby the customer’s first bet amount will be matched as a bonus bet. Whilst this is not as generous as some other sign up offers, it still represents very good value.

Sportsbet’s real value comes in the form of the number of refund promotions it offers its existing customers. Sportsbet retains the highest number of clients in the industry and this is one of the main reasons why. Another is that they accept large wagers on a wide range of sports and racing events. Due to its size, Sportsbet is able to offer a wide range of betting markets on events from all over the world. Sportsbet also offers the Top Tote Plus betting product on any and every Australian horse race.

Sportsbet bonus refund offers and sports promotions

When it comes to offering existing customers regular betting promotions on a range of racing and sports, Sportsbet ranks at the top of the list. A number of bonus bet refunds are offered to their customers each week. An example might be: receive a free bet refund if your horse runs 2nd in the Caulfield Cup, or; if a soccer match finishes in a draw, losing first goal bets will be refunded. There are usually up to 5 promotions on offer at any one time and these can be viewed on the Sportsbet.com.au promotions page.

Top Tote Plus with Sportsbet

Another popular product with punters is the Top Tote Plus betting dividend. This bet type pays out the higher of the 3 Australian totes or the official bookmaker starting price. Bets can be placed at any time and the product allows punters the chance to receive a better value dividend, rather than placing a fixed odds bet or worse, selecting one of the totes. Top Tote Plus is available from Sportsbet on every Australian horse race.
