Sportsbet Australia review

SportsBet.com.au is one of the most popular online bookies in Australia, so much so it is often referred to as Australia’s number one betting site. They lay claim to being Australia’s first licenced bookmaker after opening a small store front in the Northern Territory in 1993.

Since then SportsBet has changed hands several times over the years. Most notably they were bought by bookmaking guru Matthew Tripp in 2005. Tripp skyrocketed the SportsBet brand from an obscure little shop front to a national, even international, bookmaking powerhouse.

In 2009 Tripp sold the business to Irish bookmaking juggernaut, Paddy Power. The union of SportsBet.com.au and PaddyPower.com has benefited SportsBet’s loyal customers by offering a larger range of sports, betting options and better odds.

In fact, the SportsBet brand is so widely known and trusted they are the approved betting partner of the NRL, AFL, Cricket Australia, Tennis Australia and the Australian Wallabies.

SportsBet’s reputation and popularity is off the back of terrific odds on offer for their customers as well as the mammoth range of sports and betting markets available.
