LynchBet Overview

Mason Kelliher

Jimmy Mason

Family-owned and operated, LynchBet has brought their exceptional customer service of over two decades from on the course, to on the net. LynchBet has no sports betting and only provides markets on Australian and international gallops, greys and trots.

LynchBet is a boutique bookmaker that provides their users with high odds and regular member promotions. LynchBet is missing plenty of user features including live streaming and form guide.

LynchBet Review

LynchBet is run by friendly NSW bookmaker and a director of the NSW Bookmaker Co-op, Grant Lynch. LynchBet offers racing only to their punters with top products including Best Tote + SP and Top Fluc. Grant is approachable and builds personal relationships with his clients by treating them right by offering corporate-level promos and fast withdrawals (less than 30 min from our experience).

LynchBet offers top odds and consistent promos for their members.

Although LynchBet does not offer sport, to compete with the corporates they keep their fixed odds high for all Australian racing (gallops, greys, trots) with limited options for international racing. LynchBet is not 24/7 and only offers markets on races happening on the same day. LynchBet does not offer early racing markets.

While LynchBet is undeniably missing out on key features like live streaming, same race multis and the extensive markets that Bet365 can provide - their loyal clientele consisting of many professional punters shows that the basic needs of a punter (respect and of course, an unrestricted account), outweigh the flashy perks.

Why we like LynchBet ✅

  • Top promos for loyal clientele
  • Competitive fixed odds and racing products
  • Twice daily Osko withdrawals

Why we don't like LynchBet ❌

    • LynchBet does not have any sports betting
    • LynchBet only has same day race markets available

    LynchBet Rating: 8/10 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    Have you ever met, a friendlier bookie than LynchBet?

    LynchBet is not your faceless corporate company, but a family business with a devoted small team which most have been a part of for 10+ years. For anyone who is a regular at either Kembla Grange or Newcastle racecourse where LynchBet is the leading bookmaker, Grant Lynch is a household name.

    Like many small bookmakers and after 22 years of being an on-course bookmaker, COVID-19 drove LynchBet online. As a real “people person”, Grant Lynch initially found a disconnection with his clients moving into the digital world. To keep up that strong, personal level of customer service, the team at LynchBet (with Grant at the forefront) work tirelessly to be available immediately by phone or email for any user requests.

    Grant aims to call all new online clients himself, to build a personal relationship from the beginning.

    You’re hardly going to be able to call up betr to speak directly to Lachlan Murdoch, and negotiate a promo.

    I decided to investigate this efficiency (and taking the piss at that) by emailing for assistance at 1am Saturday morning. Expecting maybe a midday response, I was pleasantly surprised at the near instant reply.

    LynchBet FAQ

    📋 Is LynchBet a good bookmaker to bet with?

    Some of the reasons why LynchBet is a great site to bet with include:

    • LynchBet offers regular promos for loyal clients.
    • LynchBet uses Osko instant withdrawals, twice daily
    • LynchBet offers competitive odds for racing.
    • LynchBet offers Best Tote + SP and Top Fluc on domestic horse racing.
    • LynchBet is a family business that is 100% Australian owned and operated.
    • Grant Lynch and the team provide exceptional customer service for their clients.
    📲 Does LynchBet have a betting app?

    LynchBet does not currently have an app, but is available by their website on desktop or mobile. The LynchBet website is optimised specifically for mobile use

    💼 Who owns LynchBet?

    LynchBet is owned by Grant Lynch and is the entity of an Individual/Sole Trader which identifies as a natural person, not a company.

    💰 Does LynchBet have sign up bonuses?

    As specified on the betting site bonuses part of our website, it is illegal for betting websites in Australia to advertise sign up bonuses.
    Betting sites such as LynchBet, are free to advertise betting bonuses and promotions to customers who are signed in to their LynchBet account.

    Why Punters Like LynchBet

    The exceptional relationship LynchBet builds with their clients is evident with their 4.5/5 star reviews on Google (at time of writing). Most bookmakers do not disclose reviews from their clients, and have pretty terrible ratings on third party sites like Trustpilot (looking at you, Sportsbet - 1.3/5 stars).

    Some of the main reasons bookmakers get a bad rap online are due to poor customer service and slow withdrawal times. Two things you won’t get with LynchBet.

    Pretty good, OSKO withdrawals are a plus, would be nice if the website was a bit more modern but that can be overlooked with the level of service, I'm a pretty bad punter but the bonus bet offers are very generous compared to other bookies.

    Punting on Racing with LynchBet

    As a longstanding rails bookmaker, LynchBets’ markets are what you expect to see at the track. LynchBet covers all the Australian racing (gallops, greys and trots) and a handful of international races mainly in the USA, UK and Japan. LynchBet offers some of punters' favourite betting options on domestic horse racing including Best Tote + SP and Top Fluc, and racing multis for up to 10 legs.

    LynchBet is missing some key racing features like live streaming, speed map and form guide and only offers a handful of basic markets on same day racing, including win, place, quinella, exacta and trifecta. If you’re looking for a 24/7 bookie with more markets, futures and same race multi, then you will find more options with Neds.

    🏇 What is "Best Tote + SP" and "Top Fluc"?

    Best Tote + SP is a type of bet used in racing for a win. The bettor is guaranteed the highest dividend declared by the three national totes or the official starting price. It is a great option when betting 30 minutes before the race.

    Top Fluc is another racing win type of bet that guarantees the bettor the best fluctuation for their selection during the official betting of the race. Top Fluc must be placed before the betting ring opens.

    LynchBet offers Best Tote + SP and Top Fluc.

    Using the LynchBet Website

    The LynchBet website is powered by MyTrackPrice and has a similar plain and simple layout to other bookmakers utilising the same service, including DaveBet and Pendlebury Bet. These sites are basic, but are very easy to navigate between the racing offerings and give an on the track vibe.

    As there is no sport and only same day racing available, the layout is so simple that you’ll be on your chosen race in one click (on desktop) - so you’ll never get lost or miss out on the next race.

    LynchBet App

    LynchBet does not currently have an app, although their mobile optimised website works great on your phone. The limited options and simplicity of the website allows you to be on any race of the day and ready to bet within two taps.
