There is an emphasis on Aussie racing (horse, harness and greyhound) but other sports are well covered, especially AFL, soccer and rugby league. They have less depth in terms of the number of available markets in sports including baseball, darts, NFL and tennis, but new sports and markets are being gradually added and this is an area we expect to improve. They also offer a number of novelty bets on such things as politics and entertainment.
A simple but effective user interface allows sports bettors to quickly find what they need without the flashing banners and distracting additions to be found on the sites of some competitors. While it is still early days for bookmakers.com.au it is clear they are setting their stall out early: keep things simple, clear and concise, both in terms of the presentation and the markets and odds.
One innovation they have introduced is their ‘Pick Your Own Odds’ feature on many of their horse racing markets. This allows you to adjust the odds you back a horse at and in return the bookie will give a winning margin it must win by for you to get paid at your preferred price. You can also do it the other way round, selecting the winning margin you think the horse will win by and the odds are adjusted accordingly.
While the available bonus offer for new customers to bookmaker.com.au varies from time to time, the standard offer is a simple 100% match of the first deposit up to a value of $250 with out bonus code XL250. The bonus may be used as a single bet or be divided into two, three or four bets of equal value, all of which must be at odds of 1.50 or greater.
Be aware that before withdrawing any winnings accrued from the bonus, you must rollover both the bonus credit and any winnings twice – again at odds of 1.50 or greater – within 90 days.
As well as the initial promotion, bookmaker.com.au also have an array of ongoing or one-off promotions to help keep you interested. For instance, they have offered money back on bets (usually up to $100) when specified players have scored a certain number of goals in an AFL match. The offers vary all the time, so check out the bookmaker.com.au site for the latest promotions.
On racing bets you can be safe in the knowledge that if a protest is upheld against the horse that finished first, the bookie will pay out on both the interim and official winners. You will also get the (higher of) Best Tote or Starting Price dividends on all Aussie thoroughbred meetings, with dividends being paid quickly and efficiently.
Despite being new to the game, bookmaker.com.au have developed a simple yet effective sportsbook that is extremely easy to navigate and use. Whether trying to find a specific market or trying to find the answers to any questions you might have, it will not take long.
Their How To Use Free Bets section is helpful for new customers and their 24/7 phone line for placing bets is also a useful addition. As they grow – as we predict they will – we feel they will need to invest in their customer services provision which – while effective when you speak to the staff – is not available 24/7 as is offered by some of the bigger companies. Adding a live chat facility would also be welcome.
We also feel they would benefit from offering a wider range of sports and markets. We anticipate this will happen as they grow in a measured manner that will ensure they don’t compromise on quality or the efficient working of the site.
Overall we think bookmaker.com.au is an excellent addition to the Aussie sports betting industry, and as they gain more customers they will undoubtedly start to widen their betting and customer service provision and probably add more promotions. In the meantime it is worth taking advantage of their initial $250 free bet bonus and giving them a try. We are confident you will like what you find.
