I have personally used Sportsbet as my bookmaker of choice since 2006 and constantly find they boast the best odds in Australia on the major events both domestically and around the world.

In 2010, Irish betting giants Paddy Power paid in excess of $400 million in a buyout, meaning their service received a major cash injection.

So let's delve into it some more and find out some of the betting products that they offer, shall we?

Sportsbet Racing

Australian punters love racing, so we feel it is best to start with their racing products first off the bat.

On top of all that, they are constantly running amazing promotions on a daily basis.

Ok, I think you're starting to get the idea. Sportsbet Racing has you covered! Let's move on.

Sportsbet AFL & NRL

You will find odds to just about any sport on the planet, but let's be honest, the majority of Australians bet on either AFL or NRL.

AFL and NRL betting is a competitive area, so Sportsbet is trying to get your business by offering kickass promotions.

Every round you will find free bets or rewards that give them the edge over other online Australian bookmakers.

For example, there is $50 Money Back Specials, Double Your Winnings, Odds Boosts and so on.

Given they boast the most competitive odds anyway, Sportsbet should be your bookie of choice if you bet predominantly on AFL or NRL.

The Sportsbet Punters Club is a real beauty. It is the only betting product of its kind online in Australia.

It allows you to invite your mates into your own unique Punters Club and they do all the work for you.

You can choose to enter either the AFL Tipping, NRL Tipping, or both.
