Sportsbet – A Review of Australian Sportsbooks

A betting site or sportsbook is where Aussies can place wagers on, well…pretty much anything. From horse races and cricket matches to TV plotlines and reality show contests.

Aside from the obvious, you should always shop around for the best odds for your favourite teams and markets. This will help you to ensure that you are receiving the best possible returns on your investment, and can be done in minutes. With a wide range of legal Australian sportsbooks to choose from, finding the right one is simple, and it’s not even expensive.

Sportsbet is a name that is synonymous with betting in Australia, perhaps only rivalled by the TAB. They are a big presence on television, with hosts throwing in gambling experts (often ex-sportspeople) to offer the latest odds. They are also known for their money-back specials and “justice” refunds, where punters who lose their bets due to extremely unlucky circumstances get their winnings back.

In our review of sportsbooks, Sportsbet finished with a relatively good average sports margin of 5.6%. This was largely thanks to their excellent performance in horse racing, with Sportsbet offering the best surveyed odds for almost every selection.

Besides their odds, Sportsbet is famous for its personalised betting experience and social features. The site allows its customers to create groups and invite mates, who can then easily bet together. Their social betting app is easy to use, and allows users to share emoji reactions with other group members. In addition to this, the group leader can track activity and performance of the whole group on their homepage.
