TopBetta is not like your average bookmaker and has many gimmicks and promotions available that are out of the ordinary. The first example of this is in the welcome bonus, you do not receive the usual matched deposit bet, instead you are given 1000 ‘Bettabucks’ to use on free to play tournaments. The ‘Bettabucks’ are a currency invented by the site, for the site and can be used on a variety of different betting tournaments available on TopBetta.
Our first impressions of TopBetta are that the site itself is quite clunky, and there is too much text on the sports betting homepage. On the left it has a list of sports available whilst in the middle it displays upcoming important and popular sporting events as well as a news section. On the right side of the homepage it just has the betting slip.
Once you click into a specific sport, it is quite difficult to find exactly what aspect, league and market you want to bet on, add that to slow loading times in the browser and it’s not the most intuitive website we have ever been on.
It does have the basic features that most betting sites have so experienced gamblers will be able to navigate through it but I fear that the casual gambler may have been neglected slightly when the website was produced.
So TopBetta has around 10+ sports for you to have a flutter on. Not the most sports in the world and certainly lacking compared to its bigger competitors but a lot of the popular ones are there such as football, rugby league and union and golf along with some lesser known sports like motor sports and ice hockey. Obviously Aussie Rules football is there too.
In terms of betting markets, there are quite a few to choose from with all of the usual suspects making an appearance such as under/over goals, HT/FT and first/last goalscorer when betting on football and the popular horse racing bets such as reverse forecast, trifecta and win/each way. The other more favoured sports also have a high number of markets to choose from however the less favoured do have significantly fewer available.
Now, this is where TopBetta really comes into its own. The betting tournament element of this site is what draws in the big numbers and if extremely popular especially in their native Australia.
The jist of this is that you enter a tournament (paid or free to enter) featured on the site, you then place bets on certain matches and sporting events, the person who produces the most profit on those bets or the’TopBetta’ wins the tournament. Winning a free tournament gains you entry to a paid one, winning a paid one results in you getting a handsome cash prize.
At the start of each tournament each entrant is given 1,000 ‘Bettabucks’ to use to bet on the chosen races and/or games. The leaderboard is then decided by who made the most ‘Bettabucks’ profit. Entrants can make as many bets as they like until they run out of ‘Bettabucks’, the winner is then chosen and a prize given to them. In the paid tournaments the payout is based on how many participants there were in the tournament from the start.
For the paid tournaments, the entry fee is removed from your betting balance and winnings in paid back into there too. The entry fees can vary from $1 to $55.
So there you have it, a totally unique betting experience for you to try your hand at, think you could win one of these tournaments then go ahead, try your luck.
In terms of odds and prices, TopBetta could do better. They’re odds are usually quite competitive however, they have been known to offer slightly lower odds than other bookmakers that are available.
They rarely have enhanced odds either so you’re much better off trying to win a tournament or at least rank highly in it.
Now, as this is an Australian betting company that is regulated in Australia, in-play betting is actually illegal due to Australia’s Interactive Gambling Act. Therefore there is no in-play betting section of this website and until the law changes, there won’t be. So nothing to report on that front, if you want to bet in-play then you need to try another website.
TopBetta do not currently have a mobile betting app however, their main site is tailored to mobile devices so you can visit it on your mobile internet browser without any issues. The mobile site is a carbon copy of the desktop one too.
When it comes to customer support, TopBetta have a reasonably good service. Be sure to check their helpful ‘how it works’ section which answers a lot of typical and simple questions however, if you still need to contact them then im afraid that they do not have a live chat window. Therefore you will need to either call or email them which could take some time.
TopBetta accept a few payment methods but not as many as other similar gambling sites. You can pay with any major credit/debit cards or by bank transfer however, they do not accept e-wallet payments such as Paypal, Skrill or Neteller.
