Australian Bookmakers Official Guide


Welcome to the Australian Bookmakers Sports Betting Guide.

Australians have always loved a bet, we will pretty well have a bet on anything! In the past Aussie punters usually bet at their local TAB or  for racing punters on the racecourse with an on-course bookmaker.

So much has changed now that pretty well every Aussie is connected to the Internet via computers and mobiles. Australian bookmakers now take most of their bets online or via smartphone apps.

The Australian sports betting market is highly competitive with bookmakers all seeking a share of the online sports betting market.

To be competitive they need to attract punters by offering the best value betting as well as ensuring that punters can deposit money easily, bet with ease and with all the convenience that this technological age demands.

They also offer regular betting specials, Money Back offers, Free Bets and many more incentives to ensure they get you as a betting customer.

The range of horse racing betting and sports betting markets are bigger than they have ever been, meaning that Australians can now place bets on virtually every sporting event taking place anywhere in the world 24/7. You can also bet on politics, celebrities’ babies names, TV show outcomes, the weather and even more with just your desktop computer, tablet or mobile phone.

Live-In-Play sports betting (betting on various outcomes when a sports event has started) is also available with Australian bookmakers by telephone only due to Australian legislation or with Overseas bookmakers online.

At we provide reviews of Australian Bookmakers as well as selected Overseas Bookmakers that welcome Aussie sports betting customers.

AFL Round 23 Tips and Game Previews

Round 23 AFL Preview by our guest AFL enthusiast Michael B   Richmond Vs North Melbourne Friday 4/9 This fixture has been ‘match fixed’ by the Kangaroo’s, who have dropped 11 of their Starting 22 from last week ,for no apparent reason other than the fact that they are trying to dictate who they play last week by throwing this match. No team should field 2nd string squads in an attempt to fix the result in their favour. This has been accepted as best practice by the AFL, so I’m surprised more teams have not gone down this route in round 23. if Port loose to a ‘managed’ (B.S.) Freo outfit then they drop from 9th to 12th, and they gain a better draft pick by 3 positions. There have ….

AFL Round 22 Tips and Previews

This weeks AFL tips and previews from our guest AFL enthusiast Michael B for AFL Round 22   Geelong v Collingwood Friday 28th Aug 7:20 pm MCG Both teams will be disappointed with their performances last week, but none more than the Pies’. They were terrible against the high flying Richmond outfit, loosing by a massive 16 goals. Geelong would have had last weeks match penciled in for a win against the Saints, so we are yet to see what damage to their top 8 aspirations the draw will have. If Adelaide beat the West Coast this week (hmmm) then they are out of contention. The Cats have made 2 changes for this clash, bringing in Menzel and Kelly, while the Magpies have made 2 changes also bringing in N ….

AFL Tips Previews Round 21

This weeks AFL Round Match Previews and Tips from our AFL enthusiast Michael B   Hawthorn v Port Adelaide Friday 21st Aug 7:20 E.S. The Hawks furthered their premiership credentials on the weekend with a good win over the Cats. Their loss to the Tigers a few rounds back appeared to just be a blip on the radar, with the Hawks reaffirming their status as the team to beat in September. The Power were good against the ever improving Giants, but it seems to be a case of too little too late for Port, who, at the beginning of the season were touted as serious contenders for the Flag. Both teams have made one change to their squads from last week, with Port making one forced change with Trengove out ….

Tips AFL Round 20 & Match Previews

AFL Round 20 Match Previews & AFL Tips from our AFL enthusiast Michael B   Sydney vs Collingwood Friday  13th August 7:20 pm SCG Sydney will be reeling after an unexpected hiccup to their top 4 aspirations. While expected to win over the solid Cats outfit, they struggled and came out 2nd best. Collingwood got up over the struggling Carlton. They weren’t convincing in victory, and the Swans will and ask serious questions. Sydney have made 2 changes to their line up bringing in Rohan and Pyke whilst Collingwood will welcome the return of their target man Cloke and the inclusion of De Goey. Collingwood have beaten the Swans in the last 2 matches between these sides, although the last game was R2 2014. Collingwood are good value at around ….
