Neds only launched in 2017 but it has quickly become one of Australia's most recognizable bookies. We reckon that Neds is Australia's best horse racing betting site because they offer punters a variety of 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 is free for Apple and Android phones and that they accept PayPal and Apple Pay deposits.

Finding the best new betting website

How to find new online betting sites in 2020

Australia has one of the biggest betting industries in the world which means that it's a very attractive place for new betting sites to set up shop. However, because of Australia's strict betting laws, all new betting sites in Australia need a gambling licence to operate legally.

This means that any brand new betting sites that have gone through the legal rigmarole of becoming licensed are serious, high-quality bookies.

We've listed all of the new sports betting sites in Australia (maximum 5 years old) above but you'll also find more detailed information about each site below. Also, directly below, you'll find FAQ's and all the benefits and drawbacks of new sports betting sites vs. old ones.

Frequently Asked Questions about New Betting Sites Australia

Want to know why you should (or shouldn't) choose a new betting site? Here are all the most common questions we get about new betting websites.

❗ Are there any new betting sites in Australia?

Yes, there sure are! There are three top new betting sites that have all been launched in Australia in the last 5 years. These new betting sites are Pointsbet, PlayUp and Draftstars.

  • Pointsbet launched in February 2017 and is Australia's fastest-growing new betting site.
  • PlayUp launched in October 2019 and is already one of the best horse racing betting sites.
  • Neds launched in September 2017 and has a top customer support team and great instant deposit method slike PayPal and Apple Pay.
  • Draftstars launched in April 2016 but was acquired and relaunched in 2018 and is now Australia's biggest fantasy betting site.

☝ What is the newest betting site in Australia?

The newest betting site in Australia is PlayUp. PlayUp was launched in October 2019 and is already more popular than many of Australia's older betting sites.

PlayUp is particularly good for Esports and horse racing betting because of their range of markets and competitive odds. We also reckon that PlayUp also has the best mobile app of any betting site, new or old, in Australia.

✨ Are there any brand new betting sites in 2020?

There were no brand new betting sites launched in Australia in 2020. The newest betting sites are listed on this page and are PlayUp, PointsBet, Neds and Draftstars. PlayUp is the newest (launched in Ocotber 2019) but it can't be considered a 'brand new betting site'.

⏰ What makes a betting site new?

I guess that all depends on your time scale. If we are thinking about the history of the universe then it's probably fair to say that all Australian betting sites are new. However, if you are a pygmy gobi (a tiny fish found on the Great Barrier Reef) and your life is just 59 days long then I guess none of the betting sites we've listed are new.

We think it's fair to say that for us humans, new online betting websites are ones that were launched in Australia sometime in the last 5 years.

🥇 What is the best new betting site?

Pointsbet Australia is the best new betting site - at least in our opinion.

We reckon that Pointsbet takes the cake as the best new sports betting site because they offer Aussies the most betting markets for the AFL, NRL and NBA (1,000+ each game), because they have a really easy to use betting app, because they have one the best customer support teams we've chatted to and because they payout faster than any other betting site we've used. PointsBet also lets you bet how you want with Australia's only Name-a-Bet and Spread Betting services as well as a great Multi betting platform.

⚽ Are there any new football betting sites?

Yes! PointsBet, PlayUp, Neds and Draftstars are all new football betting sites.

Whether you mean Aussie rules football or soccer, all three of these sites offer access to the top football leagues (the AFL, EPL, A-League, Champions League etc.) at well-priced odds. PointsBet and PlayUp also have top footy and soccer odds whereas Draftstars has the biggest footy and soccer fantasy prize pools of any daily fantasy sports betting site.

✅ Why should I choose new betting websites?

New betting websites are great because they generally provide the best user experience, have the best apps and offer unique betting features. New Betting websites are also woth signing up for because they are generally keen to attract, and keep new Aussies with some of the best bonuses and promotions and some of the best customer support teams.

For example, PointsBet has a top customer support team and unique betting features like Spread Betting and Name-a-Bet while PlayUp has Australia's best-fixed odds and best betting app. Draftstars offers the most comprehensive fantasy betting games and also has the biggest fantasy prize pools in Australia.

❌ Why should I avoid new online sports betting sites?

Older betting sites may be a better choice than new online sports betting sites because they tend to have more sports available to bet on, lower odds and can be more generous with their bonuses and offers - because they have more customers and therefore more revenue. Of course, this is not always the case but for example, Bet365 is known to have very low odds while Unibet is known to have a huge range of sports, racing and specials markets.

How do you know if a new betting site is right for you?

Unique Betting Options

PointsBet is the only betting site in Australia to offer spread betting - a unique way to bet whereby you are rewarded for how 'correct' your bet is. Spread betting is a high-risk high-reward style of betting that is becoming increasingly popular in Australia. PointsBet also has an awesome Name-a-Bet feature whereby you can get your own odds for unique bets. PointsBet's Multi builder and Quick Multi options are also great.

The Most Betting Markets

Because of their unique betting offerings, PointsBet boasts the most betting markets for the AFL, NRL and NBA of any betting site in the world. This means that no matter how you want to wager, PointsBet will accept your bets.

The Quickest Withdrawals

PointsBet's withdrawal options are limited to bank transfers, however, out of every betting site, new and old, that we reviewed their withdrawal times were the quickest. The PointsBet website says that withdrawals can take two hours but for us, they were nearly instant.

Top Tier Customer Support

With 24/7 live chat, a call centre, a live betting phone line, an email address and a personal account manager, we found that PointsBet's customer support team was one of the best in Australia.

The Fastest-Growing Betting Site

After launching in 2017 PointsBet has quickly become Australia's fastest-growing betting site. PointsBet is listed on the ASX and its share price increased over 10x in the 6 months between March 2020 to October 2020. Part of the reason for this is because their Australian customer base has grown rapidly, but also because PointsBet is making waves in the highly competitive US sports betting industry.

The Best Betting App

Even though it's Australia's newest betting app, the PlayUp sports betting app is our favourite. It's fast to load, easy to navigate and makes depositing, betting and withdrawing a breeze. You'll find heaps of racing bets, live bets and fixed-odds sports bets on the PlayUp app and with great promos to increase your payouts we think that every Aussie punter should have the PlayUp app.

The Best Fixed Odds

PlayUp consistently has the best-fixed odds for Australian and international horse races and sporting events. While they do have less obscure betting markets and fewer sports to bet on compared to some other Australian betting sites, you will still find every Aussie horse and greyhound race on PlayUp as well as all the most popular sports betting leagues from cricket, footy, rugby and soccer to Esports, US sports and more.

Top Horse Racing Betting Site

With the best-fixed odds and heaps of Australian and international racing events every day, PlayUp is our favourite new betting site for horse racing.

Great for Live Betting

PlayUp has over 40,000 live sports matches to bet on every month which means that you'll likely find every live bet you could ask for on PlayUp. Like all Australian bettings sites, new and old, you can only bet live over the phone using PlayUp's phone betting line.

Australia's Newest Betting Site

PlayUp was launched in October 2019 which makes it Australia's newest betting site. On top of this, PlayUp is 100% Australian owned and operated. PlayUp also has a fantasy betting site in Draftstars which is Australia's biggest Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) site. PlayUp plans to become listed on the ASX and they are also talking about revolutionising betting payments by offering the world’s first fully-integrated, blockchain-enabled sports community with their PlayChip currency.

The Best New Betting Site for Racing

Neds launched in 2017 and was acquired just a year later by Ladbrokes. Part of the reason was because of how impressive Neds' growth had been, especially within the racing sector of the. Australian betting industry. Today, we regard Neds as the top site for racing betting because of their in-depth stats and tips, their competitive odds, and because they offer some great racing promos via the Neds Toolbox.

An easy to use betting site and App

As one of the newest betting sites in Australia, you would expect good navigation and fast load times. Well, that's exactly what you get with Neds. Their simple orange and white colour scheme works well and their site is not plastered with promotions like other Australian betting sites. You can use the search bar or menu to get around the site and it is well optimized for scrolling on mobile. The betting process is simple and straightforward, as are the verification processes and payment processes.

A range of instant deposit methods

Choose from a range of instant deposit methods on Neds including PayPal, Visa, Master Card, or the Neds Card. You also have other quick options like POLi, Cash In and Flexepin as well as Cheque, Bank Transfer and BPAY if you so desire. Payments have no fee attached and can be made via the Neds site or betting app.

Build the Multis that you want

On Neds, you can build same game multis, same race multis, or multis across many different races and sports markets. Neds also has a Blended Multi and Split Multi feature which allows you to add multiple selections to the same legs in your multis.

A refreshingly good customer support team

Available via live chat, email or on the phone 24/7, we found that Neds' customer support team was helpful, quick to respond and very knowledgeable about Neds' betting site and betting app. This was refreshing given the sub-par customer support that exists on other Australian betting sites.

The Biggest Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) Site

Draftstars has been active in Australia since 2016 but it was acquired by PlayUp and re-launched in 2018. Since then, Darftstars has grown to become Australia's newest and biggest DFS site. You can play classic fantasy games on the Draftstars site and app but you can also play head to head matches or their unique Rapidfire contest.

Australia's Biggest Fantasy Prize Pools

Draftstars has Australia's biggest fantasy prize pools which is part of the reason it has become so popular in Australia. Draftstars competitions have different entry requirements which affect payout values but they range from free and low stakes games with smaller prizes to high stakes games with hundreds of thousands in real money to be won. Many prize pools are also guaranteed on Draftstars meaning that no matter how many other Aussies play you always have a shot at winning the big prize.

No Season Long Commitment

As a Daily Fantasy Sports betting platform, Draftstars' games last one match, round or game week long so there's no long-term commitment. You can change your team every week based on last week's performances and every week you'll have the chance to win the new jackpot prize.

Play with Friends or in Public Competitions

Draftstars lets you create private leagues or join public competitions. This means that you can play against friends or other Aussie fantasy coaches in real-money or no-money competitions.

Over 15 Different Sports Leagues

Draftstars is always adding new sports offerings to its options but it currently has 15 different leagues you can bet on. Popular fantasy sports on Draftstars are the AFL, NRL, EPL and Super Rugby although golf, tennis and cricket are also some of Australia's favourites.

Newest Betting Sites Australia - What to expect

If you're searching for new sports betting websites then you probably know what you're looking for but if you're new to the world of new betting sites then you might not know what they have to offer. Below we've outlined the features that the newest betting sites tend to have as well as what we predict to see from brand new betting sites in the future.

What features do the Newest Betting Sites have?

📈 Unique Betting Markets

As we've already begun to see, the newest betting sites in Australia are offering bet types that we've never seen before. PointsBet lets you request your own bets with their Name-a-Bet feature and they also offer Spread Betting. Draftstars has opened Australia up to the world of Daily Fantasy Sports and also has unique fantasy betting games like their Rapidfire game. As the newest betting sites search for their niches and their own unique selling points we can expect to see exciting, new betting markets to bet on in the future.

📲 Great Betting Apps

The mobile betting industry is becoming more and more competitive every day and as the technology evolves so do Australia's betting apps. The newest betting sites tend to have this figured out with PlayUp, PointsBet and Draftstars all offering awesome betting apps. As the technology evolves we expect to see that the newest betting apps will allow payments from mobile devices through PayPal and Apple Pay. The number of betting apps offering fingerprint and Face ID login is also sure to grow.

🤳 The Best User-Experience

Unique betting markets and great betting apps already add to the user-experience of new Australian betting sites but there a few other things that the newest betting sites all have in common. The FAQs and help videos of newer betting sites tend to be much better than older betting sites'. The overall navigation, look and usability of the newest betting websites are also much better. This is because most new betting websites are optimized for mobile so they have ditched the busy spreadsheet design of traditional sports betting sites and gone with more 'scroll-friendly' pages.

🎁 Generous Bonuses

The newest betting sites need a reason for their customers to join and then stay and they often achieve this with help from generous promos and bonuses. Bonuses that we got from new betting sites included deposit bonuses, odds boosts, money back offers, early payouts, bonus bets and many other smaller promos.

💬 Better Customer Support

It's not always the case, but we've found that the newest betting sites tend to have better, more helpful and more readily available customer support options. This includes live chat, email, and phone lines as well as thorough FAQ sections.

Play Up Australia App

You can expect to see great betting apps from the newest bettings sites

What can we expect from Brand New Betting Sites in the future?

💷 Sports Betting Currencies

PlayUp and Draftstars have already announced plans to offer the world’s first fully-integrated, blockchain-enabled sports community with their PlayChip currency. What this means, I honestly don't really know, but we do know that it means you'll be able to bet with PlayUp's own cryptocurrencey. We've also seen some older betting sites, like Bet365, introduce their own Visa and MasterCards which make their deposits and withdrawals instant.

📱 Social Media Integration

Draftstars already has a live chat platform that allows you to banter with other punters playing in a given competition. We reckon that this trend towards social messaging might give us a few social media channels that are connected to some brand new betting sites.

🎮 Virtual Reality Betting

It's anybody's guess as to whether virtual reality will really take off or not but one place that you hear it pop up is the betting industry. We aren't quite sure what VR betting will look like but should it start to become popular you can expect brand new betting sites to offer it.

New Betting Site Offers

It is illegal for Australian betting websites to advertise sign-up bonuses or new customer offers to players who have not yet signed up. Despite this, we found that many betting websites, new and old, still gave us betting offers - often before we had started playing.

This page is about new betting sites so if you're looking for any new offers from your old betting sites we recommend checking the Promotions, Rewards or Bonuses section of your existing betting account to see what new offers you have or you can learn about betting site bonuses here.

New International Betting Sites

Australia's strict betting laws are a big barrier to entry for new international betting sites. As such we haven't seen any new international players in the last few years. In fact, there are only a few international betting sites that are active in Australia today - new or old. Therefore in this section, we have only listed and expanded on the best new international Australian betting sites (even though we know that none are exactly 'new').

Best New International Betting Sites

  1. Bet365. The best live streaming & live betting options
  2. Unibet. The most generous betting site
  3. Betfair. Australia's best sports & racing odds

Bet365 Overview

Bet365 is the world's favourite betting site with over 45 million global customers. In Australia, Bet365 offers punters the most pre-match and live betting markets of any betting site. These markets often have higher odds than you'll find anywhere else, whether that's for the most popular leagues like the AFL, NRL or EPL or more obscure markets like for snooker, darts or golf. Bet365 also has the most payment methods of any Aussie bookie and offers both PayPal and Apple Pay for deposits. You'll also find the most live streaming options on Bet365. Bet365 really has it all that's why they top our list of the best Australian betting sites.

Betfair Overview

Betfair is certainly not a new betting site but due to the lack of international betting sites in Australia, it still makes our list of the newest international betting sites in the land down under. Betfair is not a traditional betting site, instead, it is a betting exchange. This means that you will see a slightly more complicated interface when you visit their site. However, you should know that on the Betfair exchange you can place bets just like you can on a regular bookie. The great thing about Betfair is that you can also act as the bookmaker and accept bets from other Aussie punters. The Betfair exchange, therefore, often has the best odds in Australia because there are no bookmaker margins built-in. For more information about using Betfair, read our Betfair review.
