One of the great things about Australian bookmakers is that they are very active when it comes to running competitions, especially for footy tipping which is extremely popular in Australia.
There are now tons of competitions being run yearly by many of the Australian bookies and we have listed the very best ones here on this page. Best of all they are free, all you need is to have an account with that particular bookie to enter.
Be sure to check our bookmaker reviews to find out more competitions you can enter and win yourself in literally millions of dollars if you are a successful punter.
Accumulator Footy Tipping
This is an exclusive footy tipping competition being offered by Australian bookie Sportingbet. They run two competitions that a free to enter, one for the AFL and one for the NRL and you can enter both simultaneously should you wish, as the winner of each pockets a cool $50,000 cash.
It is very similar to the usual footy tipping, but with one big difference. Rather than receiving 1pt for each correct tip like normal footy tipping, with Accumulator Footy Tipping you are awarded points based on the Sportingbet odds of the team you are picking.
For example if you pick Carlton ($2.00), Essendon ($3.50) and Collingwood ($1.25) and they all win, you will pick up 6.75pts based on the odds. The good thing is you are rewarded for taking a risk as the outsiders will get you some big points.
Last Man Standing
Another exclusive footy tipping product offered at Sportingbet for both the AFL and NRL. Again it is free entry and you can enter both competitions should you wish, as there is $50,000 up for grabs for the winner of each competition.
Last Man Standing is very unique as each round you must pick one team that you think will win. Should that team win then you will continue on to do the same the following week. However if your selection loses then you are eliminated from the competition.
The idea is to be the last man standing at the end and you are not allowed to pick the same team twice in a row. The winner of both the AFL and NRL competitions pick up $50,000 in cash, so you can potentially win $100,000 overall if you are lucky enough.
Million Dollar Tipping
Sportsbet revolutionised footy tipping in 2008 when they introduced Million Dollar Tipping. It was Australia’s largest footy tipping competition at the time and still to this day it remains the biggest Australian footy tipping competition with thousands of people entering.
Million Dollar Tipping covers a range of sports such as AFL, NRL, Soccer, Racing etc and if you are successful you will win a share of $1 million. The AFL and NRL tipping comps are worth $200,000 alone and there are weekly and monthly prize giveaways.
Best of all it is a free entry to Million Dollar Tipping so if you have a Sportsbet account then you will automatically qualify. Just follow the links on the menu and you can begin tipping today and start winning some big coin.
Fantasy Football Leagues
Fantasy footy has absolutely exploded in recent years with the emergence of Super Coach and Dream Team. It is so massive now that there are television shows and radio programs solely dedicated to covering it, as well as newspaper articles and dedicated websites.
With every single AFL and NRL match televised now, it makes playing Fantasy Football that bit more enjoyable. Now the Australian bookmakers have jumped on board and are offering cash incentives of their own if you join their Fantasy Leagues.
Centrebet and Sportsbet are two of the leaders. Centrebet are giving away $140,000 in prizes with their leagues while Sportsbet have $10,000 in giveaways of their own and that includes Team Of The Round and Team Of The Month prizes.
