TopBetta are a sportsbook brand that has been establishing itself in its native Australia in recent times but unlike some other operators in that country, it is looking for a worldwide audience. At the start of 2018, having recently acquired its UK licence, the company is looking to gain a following in Great Britain and that’s positive for a region where we are being overlooked by many new firms.
So, it’s a good time to take a look at TopBetta and see if there are good reasons why we should add them to our betting portfolio.
As we work through this review, we’ll see that a lot of the features of TopBetta have an Australian theme and that extends to promotions. Aussie legislation states that promos can’t be openly advertised as they may incite gambling so, to get full details, you would need to register and log in, without committing to any money and then you can have a look around.
We are aware that the welcome offer promises up to $150.00 as a match on a $50.00 opening credit so that’s certainly a generous way to start things off. Ongoing offers can drop in too so it’s certainly worth taking a little time to sign up and to check all the details in full.
Sporting Markets and Odds Value
When you first take a look at the TopBetta site you will see that there is a strong emphasis on horse racing. The Aussies love a flutter on the horses and that’s good news for the UK too as many new bookies can overlook it.
On the whole, this is a bookie which focuses solely on the popular sports and the full list reads as follows:
TopBetta also list a separate section for politics for those that like to get involved with this sector.
Clearly that’s not a big list by any standards but all of the popular sports are here with only the niches being excluded.
In terms of pricing, TopBetta have gained a strong following in Australia based on value and that is likely to be helped by focusing on just a few markets. So, if you’re not fussed about betting on bowls or chess, the odds provided make a strong case for adding TopBetta to your list.
All of the major debit cards are accepted by TopBetta so that makes the site perfectly accessible for those looking to open an account from the UK. As for eWallets, Australian bookies only tend to accept those that are allowable or popular in their own country and that is the case here.
There’s no Skrill or Neteller but if you have access to BPay or NAB then these are two other methods with which you can fund or withdraw.
While we couldn’t find a link to a live chat helper, when we stayed on the site for a period of time, a window did pop up asking if we needed any assistance. If you don’t want to wait for something similar to happen, there are plenty of alternatives.
A phone number given is for those in Australia but you can contact TopBetta through an email or, if you click on the Contact button there is an additional search box where customers can get access to Frequently Asked Questions. Overall this is a comprehensive set of services with reportedly fast and efficient responses.
While they now have a UK license, TopBetta are very much an Australian bookmaker but that doesn’t mean that British punters should rule them out. There are many of us that like to bet on Australian sports or big Aussie events such as the Melbourne Cup and while there are lots of options from established bookies, the prices can be mixed.
At TopBetta, there are some good promotions but those prices are the key to their appeal. The list of sports is a small one but for those who like to bet on popular events on a regular basis, steady value with competitive odds makes them a strong proposition.
- Welcome offer available as a match on opening deposit
