TopSport Review

One of the oldest kids on the block, TopSport has been Australian-owned and operated since 1998. While many big overseas betting sites have made it impossible for local bookies to survive, TopSport has hung on, and even begun to thrive - but why?

TopSport offers market leading odds, will never limit punters, and provides exceptional customer service

As a small online betting site, there is plenty that TopSport Australia doesn't offer - like live streaming, live chat, speedmaps, and some popular payment options, however, there is still plenty TopSport does give Aussie punters.

For instance, TopSport has very well-priced same game multis, top racing odds (Best Tote, Best of the Best, & Starting Price), unique player prop and futures betting markets, 25+ different sports and novelty categories, low minimums, no maximums, and much more.

Why we like TopSport ✅

    • TopSport offers Best Tote, Best of the Best, and SP racing odds
    • TopSport's Same Game Multi options are extensive and their odds actually add up
    • Top-Sport is a small local bookmaker that welcomes winners & offers quality service

    Why we don't like TopSport ❌

    • TopSport is missing features like live streaming, live chat & racing speedmaps
    • TopSport's live betting options are pretty limited compared to other bookies'

    TopSport Rating: 8/10 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

    Top Sports betting site or Top Sports betting shite?
    Mason Kelliher

    Mason Kelliher

    Top sports betting site.

    TopSport is run by Tristian and his father Llyord Merlehan, one of the most prominent bookmaking families in New South Wales.

    Since 1998, Tristian's goal has always been to give Aussies an honest and fair betting experience with no limits applied to winning accounts.

    "Simply, any market we put up is fair game to anyone, your first day bettors or your seasoned professionals." - Tristian Merlehan, 2021

    Of course, this doesn't mean that big bets will always be accepted but so long as TopSport can remain liquid (cover some of their losses) your bet will always be taken.

    This honest philosophy also goes into other aspects of TopSport.

    You'll find that TopSport displays their own bookmaker margins for fixed racing markets, that their Same Game Multi odds for AFL, NRL, Soccer, US pro sports, and US college sports actually add up, that their online betting minums are $2 per bet, and that they have a local, honest 24/7 customer support team.

    As well as offering an extensive selection of domestic and New Zealand horse racing markets (with Best Tote odds), TopSport has international racing and greyhound racing options with Full Form guides, Tips, Price Flucs, Exotics and special markets like Jockey Challenges, Futures, and Favourite vs Field as well.

    As I've already mentioned, you can expect less in the way of features with no live streaming, live chat, speedmaps, or weather previews for racing on TopSport. You may also find the TopSport app a little slow at times and the lack of FAQs or 'search' function annoying on their site.

    However, TopSport does excel for Australian racing, AFL, and NRL with market-leading odds and unique betting options so, it's pretty easy to forgive what's lacking.

    Top Sport Deposit Bonus

    As with all Aussie bookies, TopSport can only show deposit bonuses and other betting promotions to their existing customers

    Of course, TopSport's odds for all outcomes cannot always be the best in Australia but you can always expect certain horses or outcomes in sports matches to have the best odds at TopSport.

    How do you review TopSport Australia?

    Our TopSport review was based on the same 5 factors that we use when reviewing all online betting websites in Australia.

    • Betting Variety (8/10) - 25+ different sports & novelties, domestic & international racing, many prop, and special bet types
    • Mobile Experience (7/10) - Apple and Android apps, a little bit outdated and may also be slow at times
    • Payment Options (7/10) - Credit Card, Cheque, Paysafecard, EFT/Bank Transfer, BPAY, POLi, Cash (Westpac)
    • Betting Experience (10/10) - Honest bookie that won't limit you, has market-leading odds and many unique betting options
    • Customer Support (9/10) - 24/7 local support team but no live chat option, very knowledgeable and helpful

    Is there a TopSport sign up bonus?

    Due to Australian betting regulations, we cannot tell you whether TopSport offers a sign up bonus, deposit bonus, or any other type of promotion.

    If you are a TopSport customer you can view your bonuses and promotions after logging in to your account.

    TopSport App

    Basically, the TopSport app is just a more condensed and simplified version of the TopSport website.

    This is a big plus if you're planning on using TopSport regularly as the menu (which is hidden on the TopSport App) contains a lot of markets that may not interest you very much.

    This also means that many of the pros and cons we have for the TopSport website are the same for the TopSport App.

    The most important things to note are that the TopSport app is generally pretty fast but if you aren't running the latest software update it can be a little slow. Also, Android users can only get the TopSport app from the TopSport mobile website (see the TopSport App download instructions below).

    Overall, the app could probably do with a more modern design although this is purely aesthetic and doesn't take away from the great options, odds, and service that you'll get.

    TopSport App Pros ✅

    • Free for iPhone and Android
    • 25+ different sports & novelties
    • 24/7 phone support
    • Shows racing margins
    • Australian-owned & operated
    • No-limits, winners are welcome
    • Futures & unique prop bets
    • Top AFL & NRL odds
    • $2 betting minimums
    • Extensive & well-priced Same Game Multis
    • Exotics, full form guides, fav vs field, tips, price flucs
    • Best Tote, Best of the Best, Top Fluc, Starting Price, Best of 3 Totes

    TopSport App Cons ❌

    • Can be slow
    • Outdated design
    • No search function
    • No speedmaps & weather info
    • No live chat or live streaming
    • Limited live betting markets
    Top Sport Australia App

    The TopSport App is pretty basic but it certainly gets the job done

    Downloading the TopSport App

    How to Download the TopSport App

    The TopSport app can be downloaded directly from the Australian App Store for iOS devices and from the TopSport website for Android devices.

    Android users will not find the TopSport app on the Google Play Store because Google used to ban betting apps. This restriction has since been lifted but TopSport has not added their app to the Google Play Store yet.

    How to Download the TopSport Android App

    1. Open your Android device
    2. Go to www.topsport.com.au
    3. Create a TopSport betting account
    4. Scroll to the bottom of the site

    6. Select 'Download TopSport App for Android'

    An apk file will be downloaded to your device. Check your 'Downloads' folder or notifications list and when you find it hit 'Install'. You may also need to go to 'Settings' and check that the box under the 'Unknown Sources' heading is ticked.

    How to Download the TopSport Apple App

    3. Open your Apple device
    4. Go to the App Store

    6. Select 'Download'
    Top Sport App

    While it is not our favourite betting app, if you prefer betting on mobile then TopSport's app is still worth your time

    TopSport Betting: Racing

    Even though it's not in their name, TopSport's racing offering is one of the best in Australia.

    TopSport regularly offers market-leading fixed odds, Top Fluc odds, Best of 3 Tote + SP odds and/or Best of the Best Premium odds for Australian races

    Often, you will also find Win and Place Tote + 5% odds for New Zealand races.

    TopSport also gives Best of the Best racing odds for Multis on every Metro Saturday.

    If you're not a regular bettor then just know that this means that TopSport's racing odds are great.

    Top Sport Australia Racing Betting

    TopSport almost always has the best fixed odds prices for at least some of the horses in a given race

    Aside from top odds, you can expect some most common racing betting features like Exotics, full form guides, price fluctuations, favourite vs field markets, race tips, and race rundowns for all Australian meets.

    TopSport also offers the occasional Jockey Challenge and has a very large range of local and offshore racing futures markets.

    Unlike any other bookie, TopSport also shows their own fixed odds margins for every domestic and international race.

    Don't be shocked if you don't find speedmaps or weather previews for races but this information is available on other bookies and tips sites so we don't think it's a big deal.

    TopSport Betting: Sports

    TopSport has odds for 25+ different sports and novelty events with a particularly strong focus on AFL, NRL, Cricket, and US sports.

    For international test matches and league games in these popular sports, you'll get 250+ different betting options with everything from regular match result bets to player and team props, TopSport specials, and much more.

    TopSport also has a range of futures and specials markets for leagues like the EPL, AFL, NRL, and US Pro leagues.

    For smaller sports like Alpine skiing, cycling, and boxing your options will be much more limited.

    Top Sport Sports Betting

    Look out for 'Toppy Match Specials' when betting on big cricket, footy, basketball and soccer matches

    When it comes to in-play sports betting (which must be done over the phone), TopSport has a decent selection of odds but this is definitely an area for improvement.

    However, when it comes to multi-betting, the TopSport 'Player Bets' section will give you access to hundreds of different Same Game Multi options for AFL, NRL, Soccer, NHL, NBA, NFL, and MLB matches along with numerous US College sports.

    Unlike other bookies, TopSport's Same Game Multi odds actually add up

    Overall, your choices are extensive and your odds are great if you want to bet on popular sports events but they are more limited if you want to be on small sports or events that are in play.

    TopSport Payment Methods

    TopSport has enough payment options to keep most players happy but you will find that your withdrawal options are especially limited.

    The most notable thing about TopSport payments is the absence of PayPal for both deposits and withdrawals.

    Otherwise, TopSport employs industry-standard encryption technology for all payments which includes off-site hosting. This is used to securely record and log betting data. As a part of the NSW Bookmaker's Co-Operative, TopSport guarantees payment of all winning bets.

    TopSport's minimum internet bet amount is $2 and their minimum phone bet amount is $10.

    TopSport Australia is proud to be a No-Limits betting site - so they have higher maximum bet amounts than most other Australian betting sites.

    This doesn't mean you can always bet any amount though, TopSport will still restrict really big bets if they aren't liquid enough (can't cover their losses too much). However, you will never be limited by TopSport based on how often you win.

    Top Sport Australia payment options

    TopSport Australia offers a variety of popular payment options for punters

    TopSport Contact

    Aside from the fact that they have no live chat function, TopSport's customer service is among the best in Australia.

    Because TopSport is a small Australian-owned bookmaker, you'll always speak to an Aussie who knows the TopSport product really well.

    In fact, many of the TopSport team works with more than just customer support.

            TopSport Features

            Sure, TopSport has fewer features than big Australian betting sites like Sportsbet and Neds but the features that they do have are quality and add a lot of value for players.

            Some TopSport features are available for all markets while others can only be used for more popular leagues. Find out more below!

            TopSport Betting Features

            TopSport Same Game Multis

            TopSport has two different places where you can place Same Game Multis - either in a specific betting market (look out for the SGM icon), or in the 'Player Bets' section.

            The best thing about TopSport Same Game Multis is that the prices actually add up i.e. TopSport doesn't increase their margin with each selection. That means that with TopSport you get the true price for your Same Game Multis.

            The Player Bets section can be used to create Same Game Multis for:

            • AFL
            • NRL
            • NBA
            • NCAAMB
            • NFL
            • NCAAFB
            • MLB
            • NHL
            • EPL
            • La Liga
            • Serie A
            • Bundesliga
            • Champions League
            • Euro League Basketball
            • & more!

            Your options for these same game multis depend on the popularity of the event but expect everything from team and player props to game markets, points, assists, exotics, multis, and much more.

            TopSport Specials & Futures

            For a range of different events, TopSport Australia has futures and special betting markets.

            Futures markets are available for most major professional and college sports leagues - think soccer, golf, footy, rugby, cricket, hockey, American football, tennis, motorsports, and more.

            When it comes to special betting markets, TopSport's 'Toppy' markets are unique offers available for big games. These often combine multiple single bets into one larger multi-bet.

            TopSport Racing Products

            TopSport Australia gives punters access to the following racing products:

            • Best Tote + SP - Best of the 3 Australian TAB prices or the Official On-Course Starting Price
            • Best of 3 Totes - Best of the 3 Australian TAB prices
            • Best of 2 Totes - Best of either the NSW TAB or Victorian Super TAB prices
            • Middle Tote - Middle dividend of the 3 Australian TABs
            • Win and Place Tote + 5% - A dividend 5% higher than the Victorian TAB price
            • Exotics - Paid at the dividend declared by the Victorian TAB
            • Top Fluctuation - Best price declared by the Official Bookmakers Fluctuations
            • Best of the Best Premium (BOB) - Best of 3 Tote prices or the Official Best Fluctuation
            • MultiBets - Numerous single bets where the individual prices of each event are multiplied
            • Fixed Odds - Fixed Win and Place prices are set by TopSport

            TopSport Bookmaker Margin

            TopSport displays its own fixed odds margins for all local and international races. This is normally around 130% or 140% in the days leading up to a race but falls to around 120% by the time the race jumps.

            A margin of 120% puts TopSport among the best bookies in Australia in terms of the quality of their racing odds.

            In the industry, this type of honesty is rare and is definitely something we value from TopSport.

            Top Sport Features Same Game Multi

            TopSport Australia's Same Game Multi builder is arguably the best in the country because their odds actually add up

            How to Use TopSport Australia

            The TopSport website mirrors many popular Australian bookmakers. The main menu at the top of the homepage can be used to filter between Racing, Sport, and In-Play markets as well as Promos and Contact information.

            On the left (or the menu in mobile), you'll find highlighted events. Below this, you can filter between upcoming Racing and Sports events.

            Top Sport homepage

            The TopSport homepage displays either the next races or sports events to begin.

            Unfortunately, the TopSport homepage, or any page for that matter, has no 'search' feature so you will need to use the menu to find your bets.

            Pay special attention to the 'Player Bets' option in the menu as this is the place where you can create Same Game Multis for a range of popular Australian and international sports.

            Otherwise, you will find rules, guides, FAQs, and other company information at the bottom of the TopSport homepage - although this kind of extra information is pretty sparse when compared to the guides and help sections on other online betting sites.
