SportsBetting: Australian Bookmaker Overview

Three reasons to play at SportsBetting

  • Big choice of racing bets
  • Low margins for top tier soccer events
  • Quality customer service

SportsBetting is a Northern Territory licenced bookie and they boast the big reputation of being one of the pioneers of online betting in the country. For South Australian residents, SportsBetting’s gambling operations are governed by the South Australian Gambling Codes of Practice. They were one of the first to get up and running with the online wagering innovation and have been in operation since 1998. They are completely Australian owned and operated, delivering fixed odds betting. 

Available Bets & Features

SportsBetting does deliver a big focus on all forms of racing and greyhounds. That’s clear to see from how their website is set up, because the racing is their flagship sport. They do offer exceptional racecards on the site, offering tracking tools such as graphical-based fluctuations right on the card. Middle Tote and VIC Place prices can be seen right alongside the fixed odds win and place options. 

Easy access to multis exists as well on their racecards. There are other sports covered of course on the site which backs up the horse racing platform well. Premier League soccer matches from English offered around 60 additional markets each, alongside the main outrights. SportsBetting present fixed odds, line and Over/Under prices as their key soccer listings. 

The sportsbook isn’t as extensive as some of the other major competitors and futures were a little bit lacking there as well. But given their big interest in horse racing, and major sports, what is there is covered well. They back up their services with touches like Quick Multi Betting Markets and a promotions section. Their offers change regularly, such as profit boots on multis. They do pride themselves on top-notch customer service which is open every single day of the year.

Live Betting

There is no live betting section present at SportsBetting. You will see a countdown to the next live events, horse racing and other sports on the main page. However there are no live odds listings on the SportsBetting website. Similarly, SportsBetting is not a betting site that offers live streams for their customers either. Given that their promotional tagline is “No Gimmicks, just great fixed odds betting” maybe it’s not a surprise that some features are missing.

Odds Value & Margins

For being a domestic operator, the odds and margins at SportsBetting are very good. They run extremely competitive lines against some of the heavyweights in the industry. In taking a look around the site, a few different markets were picked out to see what kind of margins were running. There were some excellent results in soccer in particular.

NBA Match: 7.3%

English Premier League Match: 4.76%

Tennis: 6.06%

Mobile Betting

SportsBetting do have mobile apps for their customers which were only launched in 2019. They were all designed in-house. There is an apk file to download for Android user, while iPhone users can get the app straight from the App Store. For those who wouldn't want to bother with an app, bowling to their site on a mobile device will automatically get directed to the mobile version of the site. In comparing the two, the apps were far easier to navigate and allowed for quicker, more functional betting. That includes quick payouts within minutes of a market closing and easy account management overall.


SportsBetting offer four different ways to get funds into an account. There is Poli, Credit/Debit Card, Bank Deposit or BPay. To get money out of a SportsBetting account there are some stipulations. Any funds first deposited by credit or debit card have to go back to that very same funding source. They don’t charge for any withdrawal transaction for that, but the financial institution may. Or you can withdraw straight to your bank account where deposits generally take place overnight. Again there are no fees, but funds deposited to SportsBetting first have to be invested before any withdrawals are permitted.
