Modern bettors want a range of flexible betting options and Sportsbet delivers on that score. The Sportsbet Power Play enables you to boost your odds for a selected bet each day, and if your selection comes in, you get paid out at the bigger price. The Fold is another useful betting tool, which enables you to cancel any racing bet while the race is being run, so if you don’t like the way your horse is shaping up, you can get your money back.
When it comes to Sportsbet Bonus Bets, they’ve got you covered. New customers can bag a $500 bonus bet on opening an account and making their first deposit. And withdrawing your winnings is simple with the Sportsbet Cash Card, which gives you instant access to your winnings via any ATM or EFTPOS anywhere in the world.

Sportsbet Punters Club is a great way to share the fun of betting by getting your mates together and starting a punters club. The special SportingBets Punters Club software will take care of managing your bets each week and offers your Club a number of features including Hot Streak which earns you the right to bet again another week if you land a few winners for your club. At the end of the betting year, you can see which of your mates is the best tipster, and how much money you have earned between you. Betting is best when it’s social and Punters Club is a fun way to include your mates with your weekly punting.
When you’ve landed a few winners, you don’t want to be kept waiting to get your winnings. To match the demand of modern customers for fast, easy withdrawals, Sportsbet makes it simple to gain access to your winnings with the Sportsbet Cash Card, which gives you instant access to your winnings via any ATM or outlet that accepts EFTPOS.

For rugby league or footie fans, Sportsbet gives you an opportunity to win, even if your team loses. The Sportsbet 12 Up Payout promotion gives you a payout if the NRL team you’ve selected is 12 points up at any point in the game, while the Sportsbet 24 Points Up Payout promotion gives you the same deal if your AFL team is up 24 points at any time during the game. Even if your team goes on to lose the match, you still win.
We all like the idea of getting bigger odds than anyone else, and with Sportsbet Power Play you can do just that. This feature allows you the chance to boost the odds on any one bet selection for the day. So if you get a hot tip or really fancy your team to win the big NRL game, you can get above market level odds by clicking on the Power Play button in the bet slip before you confirm the bet. You only get one per day so you should use it sparingly, but it offers the chance to cash in on that great bet.
Have you ever bet on a horse but changed your mind once the race has started? Maybe you don’t like the way the horse is moving, or think its jockey is in the wrong position. The Fold by Sportsbet is an innovative betting feature that lets you fold your bet while the race is still being run. Like the Sportsbet Power Play, you can only use it once per day, but it gives you the chance to salvage your stake after the race is underway, which can come in handy.
Sportsbet Bonus Bets
If you’re new to Sportsbet you can claim up to $502 in Bonus Bets for opening an account and making a deposit. Sportsbet will match whatever your first deposit is up to a maximum of $502, so in theory you could have $1004 to bet with for a $502 investment. Once you have made your deposit, the Sportsbet Bonus Bet will be credited to your account within 24 hours.
To take advantage of this Bonus Bet offer, just select the Bonus Bet option on the Sportsbet betting slip or call the Sportsbet Customer Service team, who will be happy to help you. You have to use the Bonus Bet within two weeks of the time that it is credited to your account, otherwise the Bonus Bet will become void and you will lose it.
It’s important to remember that if your Bonus Bet wins, only the winnings from the Bonus Bet will be credited into your Account, and not the Bonus Bet Stake. The Bonus Bet will only be available for use with certain markets and according to the particular terms of the offer, so as with any bonus, it’s a good idea to read the terms and conditions before you take it up.
Sportsbet Mobile Betting App
Being able to place a bet on the go is an important part of modern betting and Sportsbet caters for the busy punter who wants to have a bet on the train or in the park. The Sportsbet Mobile Betting App is available for iPhone, iPad and all Android devices, and enables you to see at a glance which betting events are coming up, and makes it easy for you to access and select bets from thousands of sports and betting markets. The Sportsbet App now features a dedicated racing and sports homepage, which makes it easy to get your bets on quickly, without having to navigate through different sections of the site. The App’s improved racing navigation also makes it straightforward to bet from race to race and track to track.
The Sportsbet App gives you everything that you would have at your fingertips if you were betting on your desktop, including complete form guide and statistical analysis for betting markets, but if you prefer to bet through the web, you can use the Sportsbet Mobile Site which operates in a similar way to the App.
Sportsbet Horse Racing
Few Australian bookmakers cater more effectively to the racing fan than Sportsbet. Their site offers you the chance to bet on every market in Australia and New Zealand, whether you’re interested in horse, greyhound or harness racing. Via the Sportsbet Racing homepage you can access today’s racing markets and the markets for the next three days, so if you like to swoop as soon as the markets open, the Sportsbet Racing interface is perfect.
You can also stream all Victorian race meetings via the web or through the Sportsbet mobile app, while each betting market offers full form guide and relevant statistics for each horse or dog in the race and their trainers. You can also see the latest price fluctuations for each runner, while enjoying access to all of the usual exotic racing betting markets such as Quaddies, running doubles, and doubles, through both the mobile and web interface.
And with Sportsbet’s special betting feature, The Fold, you can even cancel your racing bet once the race is underway, giving you the chance to get your money back if you don’t like the way your horse is running — a useful tool that all racing punters should appreciate.
