Sportsbet New Zealand review

Estimated Reading Time: <1 minutes

Sportsbet has always been revolutionary in the world of bookmaking and now New Zealand punters can reap the rewards.

Say goodbye to the low odds and poor rewards system, Sportsbet have crossed the Tasman and are making waves into the kiwi-betting market.

For years kiwis have dealt with the NZ TAB — a government run bookmaker which continues to frustrate even the most loyal New Zealand bettors.

Sportsbet is here to turn those frustrations around and all New Zealand-based bettors should take notice.

Sportsbet offer great promotional deals including refunds, bonus bets and increased payouts — something kiwi punters have been seeking for years.

The best part of Sportsbet New Zealand? You can use your credit and debit cards for all NZD deposits. You won’t have to fill out those annoying forms, hand over your I.D, and wait in line to get your cash, it’s now just a simple click of the button.

And of course there is the seamless apps and mobile website that Sportsbet provides.

Bonuses for NZD Sportsbet customers

Sportsbet, to celebrate the launch of their move in the NZ market, are giving all new customers up to $501 in bonus bets, which will be credited to your account after you make your first deposit.

For instance, you could deposit $100, and instantly you would have $200 to bet with. Keep in mind you will have to clear wagering requirements before you can withdraw these winnings, but generally this means you need to gamble the money before you can take it out of the account, but it’s worth checking before accepting the bonus amount.

On a week to week basis Sportsbet will run other bonuses, including cash back, freebets, special line betting options and many other promotions, for existing customers, so it is well worth your time opening an account at Sportsbet.

Advantages of using Sportsbet in New Zealand

When new customers sign up to Sportsbet they get great bonus bet deals. These can range form $150 to $500 and the bets can be used on all sport and horse racing markets.

Punters in New Zealand want the best odds available and Sportsbet offer much better odds than at local bookmakers.

The $1.87 lines in New Zealand aren’t exactly what we call value, but Sportsbet offer standard $1.90-$1.91 lines for points start bets.

Not only are the odds and payouts better, but depositing and withdrawing has become much more easier. Why force yourself to travel to your nearest TAB when all you need to do at Sportsbet is click a button.

That goes for both deposits and withdrawals – simply add your credit or debit card into the system and you’re set to go.

What markets can I bet on?

New Zealand punters can bet on all markets offered by Sportsbet. These include anything from baseball to golf and most importantly rugby.

Like to bet on the exotic sport markets? No problem, Sportsbet currently have markets on darts, hurling, poker and ski jumping just to name a few.

Most kiwi punters love a bet on the horses and they offer markets for all Australian, New Zealand and overseas racing.

Thoroughbreds, harness and greyhounds – all covered by Sportsbet and they regularly offer bonuses throughout the week on all codes.

Mobile betting at Sportsbet

Sportsbet has a battery of mobile products available to NZD punters including smartphone apps for both Android and iOS devices, with the team at Cupsbetting, whether they be Apple or Android users, very impressed by the ease-of-use, betting options and of course bonuses available for smartphone and tablet users.

Available on the Sportsbet apps and fully functional mobile website (this functions very similar to the apps) is live scores and some horse racing streamed, which is a big plus for those of us who punt on the Australian races, in Victoria.

We have used the Sportsbet app on both a 3g and 4g connection and had no dramas with it, and obviously you can use your device on a wifi connection.

Making the switch to Sportsbet

It’s as simple as clicking our links and signing up. The entire process takes under five minutes and your account is ready to go straight away.

Customer service is at a high priority and the times kiwi punters wait for customer service is just ridiculous. We’ve had some customers say they have waited over three days for an email reply, but Sportsbet pride themselves on outstanding customer service.

The Sportsbet mobile app is a great way to bet on the run and the technology used is advanced in the world of online gambling.

C’mon kiwi punters… make the switch to Sportsbet and leave those frustrations behind. Get the better odds, more markets and better value.
