Unless you've been living under a rock since Oct 2022, you'd have seen TV ads and billboards of Betr plastered across the country. Australia's hottest new betting site came out with a bang.
But is Betr a good bookmaker?
Yes. Betr is one of the best betting sites we've seen launch. Incredible promotions, popular features like speed maps, expert insights & tips, and same game multis. Not without its limitations, Betr's app is slow and has less features than its major competitors and had pretty shocking customer service for the first few weeks after launch.

Betr launched in October 2022 and hit the ground running by offering huge racing odds, just weeks leading up to the race that stops the nation. I have a sneaky suspicion they were ready to launch sooner. Since then, Betr, which is a creation of top bookie Matthew Tripp, and ASX-listed BetMakers Technology Group, has been offering great member promotions on a weekly basis.
Betr has unbeatable betting promotions on racing and sport, and in-depth sporting insights for all AFL, NRL and NBA games.
However, the launch of Betr was a bit of a shambles. A slow and clunky app, overwhelmed customer support and a “fishy” public perception. The smell of which, all continue to linger onto Betr today.
If you are familiar with Sportsbet, you will be at home with Betr. Both bookmakers have a similar layout, extensive promotions, and the sports betting and racing markets that they offer are similar, including same race/game multi and Top Tote - but neither provide Top Fluc or Best of the Best. Although Betr offers better promotions, they have less offerings on sports than Sportsbet, and less again than that of Bet365. If you’re wanting to punt on obscure sports such as Gaelic Football or Table Tennis, your best (or only) bet is Bet365.
Why we like Betr ✅
- Betr has unbeatable member promotions
- Betr provides expert insights racing (short form, punters tips)
- Betr provides pregame sporting expert insights and previews
- Betr offers competitive fixed racing odds, or Top Tote
- Betr has easy payment options like apple pay
Why we don't like Betr ❌
- Betr is partly owned by media giant News Corp
- Betr's initial launch sparked inducement concerns
Betr Rating: 9/10 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Betr offers their members great weekly promos on racing

📱 Does Betr have a betting app?
Yes. Betr has a betting app that is free to download and is available on iOS and Android. Due to the initial popularity of Betr, many users created accounts overwhelming the system which resulted in users finding the app to be slow and clunky. Since then, the app has gone through updates for bug fixes and to accommodate heavier traffic.
We recommend signing up on www.betr.com.au before downloading the app as it is much easier.
To get the most out of Betr, we recommend using the desktop website as it is faster, and much easier to read the in-depth analysis for sporting and racing events that Betr provides.

With Betr, you will have access to all Aussie markets across the three codes (horses, trots and dogs) and plenty of international racing including in the UK, USA, Sweden and Japan.
Betr has some great pre race info with tips from top punters, short form and speed map to give you an edge on all domestic horse races. Betr provides some deeper racing markets include same race multis and the quaddie, however they are missing big 6 and early quaddie that Ladbrokes provides.

Punting On Sports With Betr
While not the most extensive list of sports available (by a long shot) - Betr does offer a respectable amount of sports betting options, with less mainstream sports including:
- American Football
- Rugby Union
The markets in these sports is quite limited the less mainstream they are, and they do not come out super early. If you're an expert in a less-popular sporting league and want to challenge the early released odds, you'll find earlier options with Neds.
Best Sports to Bet on With Betr
In sports betting, Betr really stands out for its extensive markets and insights for more popular sports as shown below. There are plenty of Basketball and Soccer leagues to bet on, with deep markets in the mainstream National leagues. For example, NBA markets include points, 3 points, blocks, assists and steals.
Betr further provides impressive stats and insights section for the mainstream leagues in the sports below, which includes a live ladder, previous match history and betting trends.
With Betr you can place same game multis to significantly boost your odds
Can I put on a Multi with Betr?
Yes. Betr has a multi builder that allows for up to 20 legs on sports and races. However, the maximum paying dividend for a multi with Betr is $1001 - so you won't become a millionaire off $20. Also we found the website gets painfully slow after adding more than 10 bets to the bet slip.
Is Betr's Same Game Multi Special?
Betr provides some of the best Same Game Multi promotions and betting options we've seen, including a list of featured Same Game Multis for certain matches already made - so they've done the stats homework for you.
Same Game Multis are a great way to boost your odds and add excitement to a single sporting match. Betr provides plenty of Same Game Multis, including for the following popular sporting leagues.

How Do Betr's Odds Stack Up?
We found that Betr’s odds are in line with the industry average across most markets, especially when the event is a few weeks out. However, like a lot of betting sites that we review, with some digging you will find superior odds in some markets, and Betr is no exception.
While Betr’s odds may not be anything to write home about, we do find their betting promotions and perks for their members are unmatched. If you prefer things a bit more simple and want great fixed odds without the flash, we recommend having a punt with PlayUp.
|🇦🇺 AFL- Richmond v Carlton||5.0%||5.0%||4.3%||6.4%|
|🏀 NBA- Washington v Atlanta||4.8%||5.0%||5.0%||5.8%|
|🏒NHL- Detroit v Chicago||4.9%||5.2%||5.5%||5.7%|
|🏉 NRL- Eels v Sharks||5.0%||5.1%||5.8%||4.8%|
Odds Comparison - What does the percentage mean?
The percentage shown is the margin for how much the betting site will make on a sporting match (if all bets placed on the match ended with an equal payout for the bookmaker).
E.g. A bookmaker with a 5% margin on an event will make $5, from $100 worth of bets.
If maths isn't your thing just remember: The lower the margin for the bookmaker = The better it is for you.

Using The Betr App
Since launching in late 2022, the Betr app has received mixed but mostly poor reviews from punters, especially at the beginning. Some of the common pros and cons that we have found amongst us and other users include:
Betr App Pros ✅
- Free to download
- Apple Pay available
- Available on iOS and Android
- Extensive betting options including Same Game/Race Multi
- Racing tips, speed map and insights
- Sporting insights including ladder, match details, player histories
- Promos easily accessible
Betr App Cons ❌
- Slow and clunky
- Crashing on popular race days
- Limited features - no live streaming or multi tracker
- Slow support
The app has improved since October, however it is still a bit slow and clunky. There is definitely room for improvement and to add more features. It is only at Version 1.1.0 (at time of writing) so hopefully there will be some updates in the future.
In the meantime, we find the Betr website much quicker and more beneficial (especially on laptop/desktop) due to the extensive insights Betr provides. Plenty of knowledge, much more accessible.
Betr App is available on iOS and Android
The support at Betr has greatly improved since they launched. With the massive influx of 300k customers signing up at launch time - the support team was overwhelmed, and an undersized team was never going to be able to address issues quickly. Customers reported slow payment withdrawals, and a slow response time from the chat. We know it's frustrating not getting through, but always remember it's never the support teams fault, so be kind.
Since then, the support at Betr has found their feet and the live chat is much faster as is their call waiting time. We even found the complaint team to respond within two hours.
- 8am-11pm (AEST) 1800 002 387
- 8am-11pm (AEST) On app
Betr Withdrawal Times
Betr process all withdrawals within 1-3 business days via bank transfer only.
Many punters have expressed their frustration online claiming it took weeks to get paid when Betr launched. We cannot confirm this (damn you Deauville Legend), but a small team to process 10,000 winners would definitely take a few days.
The negative Betr reviews about slow withdrawals have since paused, and it seems Betr has their withdrawal timeframe under control. Our first withdrawal was at night after hours, and it was in the account the next day. Withdrawals we did on the weekend were in the account on Monday.
