About Sportsbet

Sportsbet have been in the betting industry since 1993. They were Australia’s first licensed bookmaker and it didn't take long for them to become a household name.

In 2009 Paddy Power, Ireland’s biggest and most successful bookmaker, teamed up with Sportsbet and just over a year later the Irish bookmaker became the sole owner of the business making them one of the top bookmakers in the betting industry today.

Website Layout and Usability

The Sportsbet.com.au online experience hasn't changed much over the years, and there's a good reason for that. The website really works - it's well laid out and despite the look being the same, Sportsbet have invested plenty into the technology behind the scenes.

Major upcoming events are listed front and center, with links to the markets for easy accesibility. Under that you have links to the next to jump races, and current live events. You'll also see a tab for live video, as Sportsbet offer live action on plenty of their markets!

Sportsbet website

Special offers (and Sportsbet have a lot) are linked on the right hand side constantly, so you'll know where you can get a little more bang for your buck.

Navigation, as with all the best bookmakers, is very simple as all sports are listed on the left hand side of the website. You can then drill down through the markets with ease.

In-Play Betting

Betting in-play is one of Sportsbet's specialities. They cover a ton of events, and odds and scores update very quickly in real-time. Again, the interface is very simple, but when you need to get a bet on quickly, that's certainly not a complaint.

Remember with Sportsbet, you can also Cash Out your current position on a market in-play - a brilliant feature unique to this bookmaker.

Being able to watch your bets unfold on the computer or phone is a great offering from Sportsbet. They offer live video on all major sports from tennis to soccer, and of course Victorian racing.

Horse Racing Section

Sportsbet VIC racing

This is one bookie that prides itself on betting on horse racing. The racing section at Sportsbet is very well laid out, with each race for the day within easy reach. You also have tabs at the top representing the next four days of racing.

It's also possible to drag and drop different types of racing, so they show in a different order, which we think is a very nice touch.

Once you're on the actual racecard, jockey silks and flucs are shown clearly. Exotics such as quinella, trifecta and first four are all easy to place, with options for boxing very clear and easy to follow.

Racing at Sportsbet

Each horse also has a rating on the track condition, and drilling down each horse's form is simple. You can also view long form which opens in a new window, showing a ton of detail with Sportsbet's expert tips. This is one of the better detailed form guides among Australian bookmakers.

Million Dollar Tipping

Every AFL and NRL season, Sportsbet offers $1 million in prizes for anyone who wants to tip. It's a great way to enjoy the footy without necessarily having to bet. There are prizes every week in addition to the grand prize for the season long ladder.

Never miss out on that agnoising last leg of a multi again! With Sportsbet's revolurionary cash out product, you can literally cancel any leg of an applicable multi while it's in play, and take the cash out at that point!

Worried your last leg is going to let you down when the other five have won? No problem, simply hit cash out and your bet is a winner.

Mobile Betting

Sportsbet recently revamped their mobile platform and it's now one of the best in the industry. The Android app specifically was completely redesigned.

Sportsbet android app

Sportsbet's mobile app is available as a free download from Apple iTunes for the iPhone and iPad, and from Google Play for all Android devices. Bet on the go wherever you are...especially useful for those at the races who want to take advantage of Tote Plus products offering better payouts than the on course bookmakers!

As you can see from the screenshots above, the app is very slick, with everything in the right place. You'll get notifications at the bottom of the screen offering different options, and all the special offers available on the website will be right there on your mobile.

We particularly like the racing section of this app - it's the simplest to use of all mobile experiences out there, and it includes some great tips from the experts at Sportsbet.com.au.
