Sportsbet is one of the biggest names in online bookies in Australia. So it should come as no surprise their mobile app is one of the best available. It mirrors the Sportsbet mobile website but gives you many extra features including the ability to live stream Victorian horse racing and enter your football tips.
Mobile sport and racing betting
You could say the Sportsbet app is just their extensive website rolled into a smaller form. Obviously the major sports covered by this Aussie bookie are horse racing, the football codes, cricket and any other major sport you can think of. There are literally 1000s of markets available through the app.
With horse racing generating the most sports betting revenue in Australia, the app caters for this extensively. While the futures and domestic racing are heavily promoted they also have extensive options on international meets in the USA, Britain, Canada, South Africa and Singapore among others. The harness racing and greyhounds are also extensively covered by the team at Sportsbet.
Like placing a bet on the desktop version of the website you are able to make multiple selections and later put them on as singles or multi them up, if you have made selections which abide by the rules of the multi-bet.
Some popular sports to bet on via the app include: AFL, NRL, horse racing, greyhounds, A-League, EPL, NFL, basketball (NBA, NBL, WNBL) and many more.
Deposit and withdrawal options
Depositing funds into your Sportsbet account via the app is simple and easy. Funds can be deposited via the following methods:
- Credit/Debit Card with a $5 minimum.
- PayPal with a $5 minimum.
- BPAY with a $5 minimum and can take up to three days to clear in your account.
- Direct Bank Transfer has a $5 minimum and can take up to three days to clear in your account.
- SportsBet Cash Card
Withdrawals are just as easy, although the options are more limited. We recommend getting the Sportsbet Cash Card, which allows you to withdraw money from your account like you would with an EFTPOS card at an ATM. Withdrawal methods available are:
- Bank Transfer: just link a bank account to your SportsBet account.
- SportsBet Cash Card: just apply for your SportsBet cash card and get it sent to you.
