Which Betting Site for Which Sport?

This guide examines the best overall in the sports betting industry, but we have some more specific guides if you want to specialise your betting on a single sport.

There are many more articles exploring the best Aussie betting sites in our section on Australian bookie guides

How to Avoid Illegal Betting Sites

The last thing you want to do is find yourself on the wrong side of the law by using gambling websites illegally. To check which sites are licensed to operate in the sports betting industry in Australia, have a look at the ACMA website where you'll find a list of all gambling operations.

Who Are ACMA? 

ACMA are the Australian Communications and Media Authority

How to Choose the Best Australian Bookmakers for Me? 

Australian punters want a good deal, and this is something to consider when choosing a site. Good odds are of paramount importance now that free bets and welcome offers have been removed with new responsible gambling policies in place.

We at OLBG think this is a good thing and allows punters to select bookie based on its merits rather than how much it is giving away in deposit bonus offers depending on a qualifying deposit for your registration details.

Whilst no promotional or additional offers are available as an incentive to register a new account, once registered there are daily promotions and special offers available

Best New Online Bookmakers

New bookmakers in Australia come along more frequently than you might think, many don't make the grade, others may not be completely legal. OLBG will only ever list bookmakers that we believe to be worth recommending having tried and tested them, and/or our members give them a shout to be included. We only list licensed Australian bookmakers on this page.

Some of the most recent additions include

  1. PlayUp
  2. PointsBet

New bookmakers can be added on any day, so always come back to this page to check for new betting agencies, or welcome offers regularly. And share with your friends, if they bet online or are looking for a new bookmaker to bet with.

How to Open a Betting Site Account

When opening a new online bookmakers account you will need to first select your preferred brand and navigate to their site. It is very easy and only takes a few minutes to complete and you are ready to make a wager online. here are the simple steps for registering a new account online.

  1. Choose your bookmaker
  2. Click the register or sign up button
  3. Provide your personal details (Name & Address)
  4. Submit your contact details (email/Phone)
  5. Set up security info (Passwords)
  6. Verify Your Account
  7. Add your Banking Options
  8. Make your first deposit
  9. Place your first bet

Steps 1-6 can be completed in a matter of minutes.

You'll be asked to choose your banking option, be that debit card or online payment method next before you can deposit any money into your account. (See the section below for full info on banking options for Aussie bookies)

Once your account is funded, you are able to find the sport, event, and selection you wish to bet on. You add it to a virtual betslip by clicking on the odds, and then you can choose your stake and confirm your bet.

Then it's fingers crossed your prediction is correct.

Method Full Process Fee
Credit Cards 1-5 Banking Days Free*
Debit Cards 1-5 Banking Days Free*
Prepaid cards Instantly Free*
PayPal Instantly Free*
Bank Wire 2-10 Days Free*
Cheque 5-10 Days Free*

*In most cases there is no charge for withdrawals, however, if you make multiple withdrawals in a single day, week or month, especially for small amounts, there may be charges applied. This will differ from the operator, so check the withdrawal policies before making lots of small withdrawals.

Withdrawal Times

The time it takes from making a withdrawal request and receiving your money will fluctuate depending on 3 aspects

  1. The betting site policy
  2. The payment method (Card/eWallet/Bank)
  3. The Amount you are Withdrawing

How long do Australian bookies take to payout withdrawal requests?

Each bookmaker can have a different policy when withdrawing funds from your account. Usually, and any reputable online bookie will process your withdrawal request either immediately or within 24 hours. it is rarely the case that it will take any longer than this unless there is a dispute of any kind

Why Does the Payment Method Matter?

Something that is often blamed on the bookmaker is the time it takes for your to receive the money back into your bank account. However, if you use a bank transfer, debit or credit card like MasterCard or VISA, the bookie can process and authorize your withdrawal immediately and inform your bank. It then depends on how long your bank will take to transfer those funds to your account. This can be between 1-5 working days depending on the banking institute

Faster Withdrawals

Using Wallet solutions like PayPal, Neteller or Skrill will often see your money returned to hose accounts instantly and at worst within 24 hours.

What Happens if I win big?

Most bookmakers have a maximum withdrawal figure in place. This is not to stop you from getting your money but is a security measure to ensure that if someone gets into your account with the idea of stealing your money they can only get a maximum amount.

If you have a larger withdrawal than the maximum level you can contact customer service and discuss the matter with them. Do check the terms and conditions with bookmakers though, sometimes, for really big wins, and we are talking in the hundreds of thousands of dollars here, they may prefer to set up a payment plan where you get an agreed amount each month. This scenario is unlikely with the brands listed here on OLBG but smaller operators do have to look after cash flow business interests!
