Sportsbet Review

As its name suggests, sportsbet is a place for Aussies to make wagers on – well, pretty much anything. The website and app let users put down bets on horse races, cricket matches, and even reality show contests or TV plotlines.

The company was founded in Darwin, Australia, in 1993, making it the country’s first licensed bookmaker. But it’s the company’s expansion into the online world that has truly turned sportsbet into a global player. It nailed the timing for a boom in mobile, tablet, and app betting, establishing itself as one of the most popular sites for betting on sports.

There’s also a great range of esports available with markets pre-game and in-play, as well as the more popular football and tennis offerings. Sportsbet also offers a feature called bet with mates, where punters can join groups to pool their funds and bet on any market. This can be a great way to enjoy the camaraderie of winning (or losing) together and it’s a nice feature that no other Australian bookmaker offers.

A key to success in sports betting is keeping track of your bets and understanding how odds are priced. The odds on a given team or individual may vary between different sportsbooks, and some books are slow to adjust lines after news about players or coaches. Additionally, it’s important to stick to sports you are familiar with from a rules perspective, and do your research on stats and trends.
