There are lots of things to think about when it comes to finding your perfect bookie. Obviously, you’ll want to get good odds for things like the AFL, NRL, BBL and so on. But you’ll also need to think about boring stuff like your online safety. So we’ve come up with a pretty good test process we use to fairly judge each Aussie betting site. Here’s what we do!
OK, so first things first, you wanna be safe. This means only playing at those betting sites that are actually allowed to operate in Australia. So our reviews will always look at each bookie’s licensing to make sure it’s acting legally. This means having valid Australian gambling licensing and not licensing from some random island thousands of miles away!
All of this is important as there are loads of dodgy bookies out there who are quite happy to steal your money. But if you stick with a bookie who we’ve given the thumb up to, then you’ll know that you’re playing at a betting site that is safe and legal. Plus you can rest easy in the knowledge that we’ve checked that each betting site has all of the required digital encryption tech to keep your data safe.
This is a massively important factor in figuring out which betting site you should use. After all, you’re going to need to use a bookie who you can trust with your money. So we’ll always rate each bookie by what kinds of payment methods it has.
If a bookie only takes payments with some dodgy crypto, then it’s probably not worth it. However, if a bookie lets you use things like Visa, Mastercard, PayPal, BPAY and POLi, then it could be worth a closer look.
So our reviews will always guide you through what it’s like to actually make deposits and withdrawals at any particular betting site. Expect to learn fascinating facts about things like minimum deposit amounts, processing times and - everybody’s favourite - withdrawal fees!
All bookies will normally have bets for dozens of sports. This means that it shouldn’t be too hard to find a bookie with odds for rugby, cricket, Australian rules football, soccer, tennis, golf, boxing and so on. But what happens if you want to bet on something different like surfing or sailing?
Well, our reviews will always go in-depth to see exactly what you can bet on at any betting site. This extends to analysis of the various betting markets. So that if you want to bet on how many sixes Steve Smith smashes or just who wins this years’ NRL, then you’ll always be able to find the suitable betting site.
We’ve seen all good online bookies making massive progress in recent years, and we believe that everyone’s got their perfect bookie. So by reading our reviews, you’ll find a bookie that’s safe, legal and capable of putting on market-beating odds for your favourite team. Easy!
Above all the Captain demands transparency — and he gets that by seeing over the production of brutally honest bookmaker reviews. Only through constructive criticism will he weed out Dodgybookie and his evil bookie cronies.
