Bookmaker.com.au Review and Bonus
Bookmaker.com.au is one of the newer bookmakers to be licensed in Australia. They have been in operation here in Australia since 2012 after being licensed by the Norfolk Island Gaming Authority. Currently their main office is located in Brisbane. Bookmaker.com.au was bought by the large UK betting agency Ladbrokes in 2013. After the buyout bookmakers.com.au fundamentally stayed the same but with an upgraded website and variety of new bonuses and promotions. Bookmaker.com.au only takes Australian and New Zealand punters and has focused entirely on the local punter market.
We found the user interface of bookmakers.com.au to be one of the most intuitive in the Australian market. They have a clean modern design with creative graphics that help move you through the site. We also found their layout to be one of the easiest to navigate. Making bets is simple and we appreciated the fact that they calculate out the estimated return. The other nice thing about their layout is they will show any multi bet options at the bottom of your slip.
Bonuses and Promotions
Bookmaker.com.au is always offering bonuses and promotions to help keep Australian punters interested. Every punter should take advantage of the bookmaker.com.au bonus upon registration and continue to stay up-to-date on their loyalty promotions. Even if you’re a seasoned punter with accounts at other bookmakers there is no reason to not take advantage of the welcome bonus at Bookmaker.com.au.
Bookmaker.com.au Mobile Version
Bookmaker.com.au has done a good job developing a mobile friendly version of their website that helps users avoid downloading bloated mobile software. Most of us here at the Australian Betting Organization created an icon on our home screen to take us to their website. The Bookmaker.com.au mobile interface closely resembles their desktop navigation so it is easy to learn and just as good as many of the mobile bookmaker apps on the market. After you build an account we recommend you create an icon on your smart phone’s home screen that will take you right to their site. With this it will feel just like a mobile app.
Sports Betting Options
Since Bookmaker.com.au was bought by Ladbrokes their sports section has grown dramatically. This is actually one of the biggest changes that has occurred with this site over the past couple of years. As a result their sports betting options on Australian sports is equivalent to most other large bookmakers in the industry. They also offer sports betting on a variety of the most popular American sports. They are also known for their large selection of tennis bets and international football (soccer) bets.
Racing Betting Options
Bookmaker.com.au has been known for years to offers a large variety of betting on horse racing, greyhound racing and harness racing. They have a broad range of markets that include fixed price, best tote, and top fluctuations. They also carry all the major types of bets you would expect for racing. If you are new to horse racing betting this is a good site to gain some experience and learn the ins-and-outs of the pastime.
We found that bookmaker.com.au carried bookmaker margins of 5.5%. This is a bit higher than the average bookmaker margins in the Australian market. While they may carry higher margins you can still find great odds on certain matches and races. As a result we here at the Australian Betting Organization weigh their odds against the odds of other bookmakers on almost all the bets we make.
Deposit and Withdrawal Options
Because they cater to the Australian and New Zealand punter community exclusively their deposit and withdrawal options have been make simple for the local Aussie. They allow for deposits using bank transfers, Visa, Mastercard, BPay, and Poli. They allow for withdrawals by bank transfer.
Bookmaker.com.au has grown large enough to function as a stand alone bookmaker. They have a great user interface and an impressive selection of sports betting and racing betting options. We definitely recommend our readers take advantage of their welcome bonus and continued promotions. We also recommend that after you build an account there to continue watching for particularly good odds in your favorite categories.
