Operated from their offices at Canterbury Racecourse in New South Wales, it is no surprise that racing forms a large part of their business. Brothers Grant and Andrew Palmer have followed keenly in their grandfather Ted’s wake to become Sydney’s biggest on-course bookmakers. But the move to online betting has given them a far, far wider reach and they have produced a very user-friendly betting site with some nice features and one or two generous offers to give Aussie punters a great option when betting online.
They are licensed by Racing NSW and as a member of the NSW Bookmakers Co-operative they have financial guarantees that mean they are secure when it comes to looking after your funds. And as they are also regulated by the NSW Office of Liquor, Gaming and Racing in respect to sports betting, you can be confident you will always get fair treatment from them. With a strong customer focus and a commitment to responsible gambling, Palmerbet are trying to do things the right way, and this 100% Aussie-owned bookie certainly look to be making strides.
Palmerbet offer a free bet to new customers that varies occasionally but at the time of writing it worth a whopping $250. Open to residents of Australia and New Zealand only (though not residents of Victoria or South Australia), this 100% matched free bet is one of the biggest in the industry and is well worth snapping up.
Note that the bonus bet must be placed on fixed odds markets at minimum odds of 1.4, and before any winnings can be withdrawn they need to be turned over twice or more at odds of 1.8 or greater. The free bet stake is not returned with any winnings, but this is standard practice these days.
An alternative to the main sign up offer is the first bet refund promo whereby those (Aussie residents only) who register using Promo Code PBCASHBACK will receive a refund of their first bet of up to $200 if it loses. Any refund must be bet through twice at odds of 1.8 or greater before any winnings can be withdrawn and you must place your qualifying bet within seven days of joining Palmerbet in order to be eligible for the offer.
Once you’ve registered with Palmberbet you will enjoy a steady stream of offers and bonuses that will help skew the odds in your favour. For instance, the bookie is offering even money lines throughout the NRL and AFL seasons from 4pm until 7pm (AEST) every Friday, up to a maximum of $200, so you can get that extra chunk of value for your bets on the weekend’s top action. The Head to Head Special Palmerbet are running on the NRL is another great offer: if the team you backed is leading after 60 minutes but loses the match, the bookie will refund your stake up to a maximum of $50, with a similar offer for AFL matches.
Racing fans are also taken care of as the 2 nd & 3 rd Money Back Promotion means that – for a nominated race each Saturday – if the horse you backed to win places second or third you will receive your stake back up to $50. With the best prices of the three Totes as standard and top fluctuations on course bookies for selected meetings, you’ll never have to settle for poor value again.
The Palmerbet betting site is neat, easy to navigate and provides information in a no-nonsense and aesthetically pleasing fashion. With the most popular markets featured under the current promotions on the homepage, you can quickly get into the betting action, while the extensive list of sports they cover is positioned in a menu on the left hand side of the screen.
They have a mobile betting site that functions well enough but – like the desktop site itself – it perhaps lacks some of the more enticing features found at the bigger, more established online betting sites. But it is early days for Palmerbet – at least in terms of their online presence – and we predict they will continue to improve as their popularity grows. And if they continue to dish out the offers and bonuses with the regularity that they have been, we think they are sure to win more fans in the coming months and years.
They could do with a live chat facility for customer support (currently they have phone and email support) and perhaps a more permanent welcome offer (which fluctuates too readily for our liking), but all in all Palmerbet are a solid bookie who are likely to get better and better.
