Summary
Author: Mason Kelliher Mason Kelliher

PlayUp is one of Australia's newest betting sites (launched 2019) and is quickly making a name for itself as one of the best - especially among professional punters. You can expect fast and simple betting apps, a really helpful customer support team, plenty of generous extras, a top fantasy betting platform in Draftstars, Same Game Multis, Best Tote odds, and most importantly - the best fixed odds offerings in Australia. Overall, PlayUp is a great choice for both serious and casual punters - especially if you're looking for high odds without all of the gimmicky features of other bookies.

Summary
Author: Mason Kelliher Mason Kelliher

Neds only launched in 2017 but it has quickly become one of Australia's most recognisable bookies. We reckon that Neds is Australia's best horse racing betting site because they offer punters a huge variety of markets, features, race day statistics and price information, and, of course, great odds. We also like that Ned's support team is available 24/7, that their app for Apple and Android phones is fast and packed with features, and that they accept PayPal and many other instant deposit methods.

Aside from the lack of deposit and withdrawal options (card and bank transfer only), Dabble is a quality new bookmaker with the real potential to alter Australia's betting landscape. Dabble offers users the ability to follow friends and tipsters, copy their bets, and banter with other punters betting on the same games or races. As well as taking social betting to a whole new level, Dabble has a deep range of racing and sports markets at competitive prices and a slick app with quality on-call customer support. Overall, Dabble is worth trying out, even if you don't think 'social betting' is really your thing.

Not to be confused with BetMakers, betM is a new and underrated bookmaker that suits racing punters with top racing promos, tips, and popular products on Aussie racing including Best of the Best & Top Fluc.

There is still plenty to like for sports lovers, with 20+ sports available, same game multis and stat markets in popular sports like AFL/NRL. However, the sports offered are lacking the in-depth insights that they have for racing - weird since they sponsor the Parramatta Eels.

BetM is missing racing features live streaming & blackbook, and the app (particularly android) has had teething issues - but the website is solid.

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.

ReadyBet looks like a classic local bookie, and it is, but ReadyBet also stands out in a few ways.

As former pros, the guys at ReadyBet also share daily and in-depth tips with all their punters. And finally, because ReadyBet uses Betfair to always give themselves an edge, winning players are welcome and you will never get banned.

With a name like BaggyBet you’d be forgiven for thinking they were a cricket focused bookie, but with live streaming, tips and an in-depth form guide - BaggyBet is much more for racing lovers, but is as safe as the Baggy Greens retaining the ashes.

BaggyBet’s fixed odds aren't the best we've come across, but they make up for it by providing Top Tote on all Aussie gallops and products like Best of the Best on selected races.

Although their odds are nothing to write home about, BaggyBet offers solid racing and sporting promos. Plus, with their decent book of 15+ sports - Aussies will enjoy using BaggyBet as much as watching Bairstow getting stumped.

Summary

The Betfair Exchange provides punters with a unique way to bet where instead of betting against the bookmaker you offer and accept bets from other Australian punters. The result is that you will sometimes find great odds on Betfair but often you'll also see that many betting markets aren't available (at good prices). The exchange can also be confusing for new bettors and Betfair's small grid-like website and navigation don't help. Despite this, Betfair does have many payment options and a solid customer support team.

Chasebet doesn't pigeonhole themselves with the dogs, they still offer plenty of promos and specials for all other Aussie racing and plenty of international meets across the three codes, with extras including form, speed maps, flucs, tips and live streaming.

Their sports book does include 15+ sports with same game multis for popular sports (AFL, NRL etc.) - however they are lacking tips and insights for these codes, and they could add more obscure sports such as Table Tennis or Esports.

Furthermore, HavaBet has near instant withdrawals, asthey process withdrawals every day between 9am-9pm. So unless you're betting at midnight, you'll usually get paid within a few hours.

While HavaBet is a great option for punters that know what they want, and incredibly easy for amateurs - it is missing some flash features that the technophile punters like, including no live streaming and there are very limited insights.

Bet66 provide daily racing bumps on their own competitive fixed racing odds, and to save any doubt, they further offer the top tote on all Australian horse racing.

Although Bet66 gives you the option to combine same game multis to really balloon your odds, the site is much better for racing and offers few sports promos, not really any obscure sports and no futures.

So, should you sign up with RealBookie?

Yes, if you're sick of corporate bookmakers and want to support a small local betting site then you'll find great prices on RealBookie but you will have to forgo many of the smaller prop, special and alternative markets found on other bookmakers.

TradieBET launched at the end of 2023 on the new bookmaking software, Punterstech. While TradieBET is far from being the jack of all trades on punting yet, they are slowly mastering each step.

Firstly, the TradieBET site (and Punterstech platform) is very fast and seamless, with little to no lag time when placing a bet. The features and markets are few (as expected for a new brand), but the promos are solid (less expected for a new brand).

And more impressively, TradieBET has very competitive fixed odds for racing with plenty of international meets. While their sports book isn't huge with 10+ sports to bet on, it's decent for a new book & with competitive odds on everything, including NBA and many Soccer leagues (15+ in England alone).

We expect they will start nailing down sports one piece at a time, as they have with racing, as they continue to build.

Summary
Author: Jimmy Mason Jimmy Mason

Thunderbet launched in 2023 by lifelong mates and punting enthusiasts, John Patton and Andrew Price. Patton has bookmaking blood in his veins, and is the son of a late well-respected bookie of the Southern Districts of NSW - Tom Patton.

The down-to-earth duo who still field the course at country meets, are aiming to take the corporates head on with all the same markets you'd expect in racing, sports domestically and internationally, same game/race multis, and regular promotions.

Although Thunderbet have acknowledged they won't compete with the advertising of the corporates, they are also missing a few of the features, including black book, sporting insights and multi tracking.

First of all, Colossalbet has very competitive fixed odds prices for both sports and racing. Second, they offer personalised tips through their proprietary technology Colossal IQ, as well as daily specials, form info and comments, and ongoing support for all bettors. And finally, with 18+ sports offered and probably the widest range of racing markets of any Aussie-owned bookmaker, Colossalbet is ultra-comprehensive. But, Colossalbet does have outdated graphics and design which certainly don't inspire a feeling of quality. All in all though, Colossalbet is a great option for veterans and newbies alike.

Marantelli Bet has been a reliable on-course bookmaker around Victoria for over 50 years. The Marantelli family has ensured their bookmaking longevity by consistently knowing what punters want - by providing competitive odds, promos, and more recently, a fast site and app.

Marantelli Bet is decent for racing and offers live streaming, speed maps, tips and racing insights on all Aussie gallops. Although they have increased their sports book recently and now offer same game multis on popular sports - they are lacking deeper sports markets, more obscure sports, and they have no futures betting for sport or racing.

If you're not into the ponies, there is still over 15 sports to bet from, with same game multis - although they definitely need to work on their stat markets, but that will come as they grow.

Launching in August 2023, Lets Bet is a breath of fresh air from other recently released and crazy themed bookies, and focuses its resources more on what the traditional Aussie punter wants - Top odds in Aussie sport, and Aussie racing.

Even though their racing odds are competitive, Lets Bet offers Top Fluc and Best Tote + SP on all Aussie horse racing, and also Best of the Best on selected meets across Australia, including all Saturday metro meets in Sydney & Melbourne.

Lets Bet definitely doesn't have the biggest sporting list to bet from, they do however, provide same game multis for AFL and NRL, where their multiplier adds up like a regular multi (and not whatever stingy algorithm Sportsbet uses). Lets Bet is missing additional features such as live streaming, and they could add more racing insights.

LightningBet came to us in July 2023, and was a pioneer of the new betting software Punterstech, which has only grown from strength to strength since.

Corny as it sounds, LightningBet does have a Lightning fast software, and also for processing withdrawals. They also release their racing fixed odds Lightning fast - meaning a few days prior to the jump, but they offer Top Tote on every Aussie Horse otherwise.

Although better suited for racing, LightningBet does have over a dozen sports to bet on. However, they could improve their racing insights and add some features like live streaming.

There is plenty to enjoy with the less mainstream leagues (e.g. Korea, Thailand & Israel), as some of these are not available at the big corporate betting sites, and the odds for these are much juicier with JuicyBet (very high odds on obscure markets).

JuicyBet still needs a bit of time to ripen, and add more betting markets for codes such as AFL and NRL, tote odds, and to add some features onto their site, like same game multis and live streaming.

JungleBet have plenty of international racing offers, and offers easy to read insights and flucs for Aussie racing. There are no tote products like Best of the Best, and the odds generally aren't the best for racing.

Although JungleBet seems to be one of the better brands to launch in Spring 2023, we've found their support to be as fast as the sloth they have painted on their bet slip.

Sports Betting Apps Australia

Almost every Australian betting site also has sports betting apps.

All Australian betting apps are free and can always be found for both Apple and Android devices. Apple betting apps can be downloaded on the App Store.

Android betting apps can also be downloaded directly from the Google Play Store

Despite all of your options, not all betting apps were created equally.

Some apps are better for betting horse racing, others are easier to use, some betting apps have better deals than others, and only a few betting apps support PayPal betting payments.

On this page, you'll find a general overview of the best Australian sports betting apps

For a more detailed analysis of each Australian betting app, we recommend reading our specific betting site reviews. We go into more detail there and you'll learn exactly what to expect from your chosen sports betting app.

Mobile Betting Sites without Apps

Directly below this, you'll also find FAQ's and we'll tell you what criteria we use when determining which Australian betting app is the best.

If you want to download a betting app, but don't have an account yet, we recommend signing up on your computer, it's easier and less annoying. When you're ready to create your betting site account, click on a link on this page and sign-up. Then go ahead and download your chosen betting app!

Best Sports Betting Apps

There are no sports betting apps that only offer odds for one sport. That's because betting sites have odds for a bunch of different sports and therefore their apps also have the same selection of sports to bet on. However, some betting apps are better for betting on different sports than others.

Below we have recommended sports betting apps for specific sports, however, our preferences might not match yours so of course, you should still choose betting apps that suit your specific needs.

Once again, we think it's easiest to sign up for a betting site by clicking one of the green buttons below. After signing up you can download the betting app you want from the App Store, Google Play Store or from the betting site of your chosen bookmaker.

🏇 Horse Betting Apps

When you're looking for a horse betting app you'll want to consider what kind of form information you will receive as well as race track information and price statistics. On top of this, great racing promos and an easy to use interface are also important for horse betting apps.

We recommend Neds' horse betting app because they have plenty of form guides, price fluctuations, and statistics, a wide range of Australian and international racing markets, Best Tote, Top Fluc & Best of the Best odds as well as a Same Race Multi Builder.

We recommend Bet365's cricket betting app because they have the best options when it comes to live cricket betting and live cricket streaming plus features like cash out and consistently high odds.

We recommend BlueBet's AFL betting app as they have decent odds, and a cool Same Game Multi builder, and are the only betting app to feature "Stat Wars".

New Betting Apps

There are plenty of reasons to choose new betting apps over older ones. New betting apps are generally easier to use and they are often faster than old bettings apps. You may also be tired of your current betting apps and looking for a new betting app to try.

Also know that most betting apps are updated periodically to fix bugs, improve navigation and add additional features. That means that choosing a new betting app may not always give you the best betting experience - but it's still a pretty safe bet.

Why should you choose new betting apps?

  • Quicker to load - The newest betting apps are also quickest to load and log in to and generally they suffer fewer issues with bugs, crashes and slow deposits.
  • Simpler to navigate - New betting apps often have great navigation and menu structures meaning that you can find an place bets quickly
  • New features - You're likely to get the latest betting features on new apps. Whether this is a new payment method, live streaming, or even new bet types & markets
  • Optimized for newer mobile phones - If you're using a newer phone or tablet then new betting apps are the right choice as they will be optimized for your device
  • Access to more odds & betting markets - If you have older betting apps on your phone then downloading a new betting app will give you access to a wider range of odds and sports betting markets

Click one of the green buttons to sign up and then download the betting app from the Google Play Store or from the App Store.

What features do the best betting apps have?

👑 High Odds Return

Despite all the frills and features of some betting apps - odds are still a high priority when looking for a new bookie. When we talk about high odds return, that is how much you expect to win, if you stake both sides of the bet.

So if you placed two $100 bets on either side of a coin toss, you are guaranteed to win one of those bets. But, because the bookmaker takes a cut (known as the bookmaker margin) you will not get offered 2.00 odds, but usually somewhere between 1.85 to 1.95. Let's say it was 1.90, and tails wins, you will collect $190, losing $10 in the process. 10$ is 5% of $200, therefore the bookmaker margin is 5% on this event.

The odds return is the other side of the bookmaker margin (95% in the example above). We test each betting site across a bunch of different sports and games to work out who has a higher odds return. They all vary depending on the game and sport (e.g. PlayUp is usually best for AFL & NRL, but Neds is much better for EPL) - but some are noticeably better in the bigger picture .

🔍 Racing and Sports Insights

Many betting apps have some sort of insights more than just the form guide these days. Which is ideal, as it means you don't have to switch between different apps or websites when doing your research on a race or game. Some types of insights include:

Form Guide - Provides basic info on the trainer, jockey, weight for each horse. Can also include horses total career starts, wins and places, total prize money and their most recent three starts.

Speed Maps - Are used to predict the running position of each horse in a field, and the likely pace of the race.

Flucs/Trends - Price fluctuations on a horse, team or player - which indicates what the bookmaker first listed the price at, and who the rest of the market has been betting on.

Tips - Are usually presented from a trusted expert, which explains who they think will win, or place, with justification on why.

Rankings - Position a player, or team, is ranked on the ladder. Usually accompanied by their most recent games.

Player Insights - A players past history in recent matches, which shows their stats for their most recent games, and the probability on how they will perform in the next game. E.g. John Allen has scored 4 touchdowns in his last 5 games. He has an 80% probability to score a try.

🎁 In-App Promo's & Specials

Under Australian law, it is illegal to advertise betting app deals to punters who have not yet signed up.

Once signed up however, from our experience, some bookmakers are much more generous than others with their offerings.

🔍 Simple, Easy Navigation

The best sports betting apps are not just mobile versions of their betting sites, they are apps that have been designed specifically for mobile. Sports betting apps often have simpler pages and more scrolling options than betting websites. The best betting apps have efficient menus and search tools so that you can find the market that you want to bet on easily.

⚡ Quick Log-In & Load Times

Great sports betting apps are optimized so that they do not crash and so that each page loads quickly. This is especially important when you're using a betting app to follow your bets live or when you want to place a live bet as they need to be constantly updated.

🕘 Live Betting & Streaming Options

One of the big benefits of having a sports betting app is that you can take your bets with you wherever you go. This means that the ability to bet live and to live stream matches is a very important feature of betting apps.

Note that you cannot place live bets directly on betting apps in Australia, you will have to call the live phone betting service. Additionally, to access live streams on your betting app you will generally need to have money in your betting account or have an active bet placed.

💳 Lots of Payment Methods

We have ranked betting apps that offer their customers lots of payment methods higher than other betting apps. We especially appreciate betting apps that offer PayPal and Apple Pay as these are two of the most mobile-friendly payment options.

💬 Helpful Customer Support & Live Chat

As with betting sites, it's important to know that your betting app has good customer support options available should you have a problem with your account or need help to use any of the features of your chosen betting app. We especially look for betting sites with helpful, 24/7 live chat and call centres.

🎮 A Good Range of Betting Markets

A good range of well-priced betting markets is important to every punter so we also take this into account when rating different betting apps. Every punter is different, some like to bet on the footy, soccer or cricket, while others prefer snooker, darts and table tennis. We think that the betting apps with the most options are better than others but we also take into account how well-priced the odds offered are.

📈 Special Features

The best sports betting apps have unique features that make the overall betting experience better. We like Australian betting apps with fingerprint and Face ID log in, ones that send you betting updates, and betting apps with extensive form and statistics information.

Sports Betting Apps for Android

Where to Find Sports Betting Apps for Android

The Google Play Store used to have a policy against promoting betting and gambling. This meant that there used to be no sports betting apps for Android on the Google Play Store.

However, today you'll find that most Android betting apps are actually on the Google Play Store.

Some bookmakers are slower on the uptake and so there are a few Android betting apps that are still not on the Google Play Store - these Android betting apps can be downloaded directly from the mobile website of your chosen betting site.

In these situations, usually, the download link for the Android betting app is at the bottom of the homepage, but it can also be found using the search function if you type in 'Android App'.

All betting sites on this page have Android betting apps.

Features of Android Betting Apps

  • Push Notifications - Stay up to date with your live bets and price changes
  • Quick Loading Time - Bet faster with pages that load quickly

    There are currently six Australian betting sites without betting apps that we still recommend.

    These bookmakers can still be used on mobile, but you will have to play via their websites.

    While it takes a little bit more time to use mobile betting sites than mobile betting apps, all of these six bookmakers have some features, offers, and markets that are worth checking out.

    Betting Apps FAQ

    What's the best betting app in Australia?

    Our experts think that PlayUp has Australia's best betting app.

    It might seem odd to pick PlayUp but the reality is that PlayUp's app is really fast to load, easy to use, always has competitive odds, and isn't packed with unnecessary features (although they do offer Cash Out, Same Game Multis, and other generous extras. It's also free to download for both Apple and Android devices from the App Store and Google Play Store.

    Of course, everyone's looking for something different when it comes to betting apps. You might want a betting app with lots of live streaming options, you may want a betting app that supports PayPal payments, or maybe you want a fantasy betting app like Draftstars - so here are our top 10 Australian betting apps and our experts' rating of their 'mobile experience'.

    Why are there no betting apps on Android?

    There are betting apps on Android!

    It is a common misconception that because the Australian Google Play Store used to not have any Android sports betting apps, they are not available. However, this is not true.

    Many Android betting apps are now on the Google Play Store. If not, they can always be downloaded directly from the mobile website of your chosen betting site

    All betting sites with Android apps have a download link that can be accessed on their website. Usually, this link is found at the bottom of the homepage when you are using their mobile betting site on an Android device.

    How do betting apps work?

    Betting apps are free to download and can be used just like betting sites to place bets on sports and racing events.

    The advantage of betting apps, however, is that there are often simpler, more intuitive versions of betting sites. You can also use betting apps wherever you have an internet connection. You'll find that most online betting apps have quick log-in options (passcode, fingerprint, or Face ID), are fast to load, and have intuitive, simple navigation.

    To use a betting app you'll need to:

    1. Click on one of the links on this site to sign-up with a betting site
    2. Download the betting app

    How many Australian betting apps are there?

    There are heaps of great Australian Betting Apps out there but we list only the 47 best on My Betting Sites.

    The sports betting apps on this page are apps that we really believe in.

    Almost every Australian betting site has a betting app. If an Australian betting site doesn't have a betting app then it will have a mobile betting site. Betting apps are better than mobile betting sites because they are optimized for smaller screens, faster to load, and easier to navigate.

    Which betting apps use PayPal?

    Sports betting apps with PayPal in Australia include:

    1. Neds
    2. Ladbrokes
    3. Palmerbet
    4. Bet365
    5. Unibet

    PayPal makes depositing and withdrawing and withdrawing money from your betting app easy and really fast. Deposits are instant and withdrawals generally take a maximum of a few hours to reach your PayPal account. PayPal deposits and withdrawals also have no fees.

    Why are there no betting apps on Android?

    There are betting apps on Android!

    It is a common misconception that because the Australian Google Play Store used to not have any Android sports betting apps, they are not available. However, this is not true.

    Many Android betting apps are now on the Google Play Store. If not, they can always be downloaded directly from the mobile website of your chosen betting site

    All betting sites with Android apps have a download link that can be accessed on their website. Usually, this link is found at the bottom of the homepage when you are using their mobile betting site on an Android device.

    What betting apps give free bets?

    Australian betting site law restricts betting sites, and betting apps, from advertising their promotions to players who are not yet customers. Therefore, you will not be able to see which betting apps offer free bets unless you have already signed up.

    Which sports betting apps have cash out?

    Betting apps with cash out include:

    • PlayUp
    • Neds
    • Ladbrokes
    • Palmerbet
    • Bet365
    • BlueBet
    • Picklebet
    • Unibet

    The best sports betting apps for cash out are Unibet and Bet365 because they offer cash out on the most betting markets (including Automatic and partial cash out) - other apps are a little more selective.
