PlayUp review

PlayUp combines the might of existing betting brands ClassicBet, TopBetta and MadBookie into one betting brand.

The early signs are positive for punters, PlayUp provides Best of the Best on Wednesday and Saturday metropolitan meets and the Best Tote or SP product on all Australian race meets. PlayUp also runs a rewards program that draws comparisons to BetEasy’s My Rewards. Points can be earned by placing bets on selected markets as well as when depositing funds. PlayUp offers two promotions on a regular basis that are worthy of mention: Lay of the Day and BoostUp. BoostUp is similar to Unibet’s price boost and other similar products, but Lay of the Day is new. The product provides a significant price for a selected runner, usually a favourite, on a nominated Saturday race. Please note: BoostUp is not available to residents of New South Wales.
