Centrebet - Australia’s #1 Online Sports Betting Site
Based in Australia, Centrebet.com is one of a number of gaming and wagering sites operated by the Centrebet Group of companies. Centrebet started out in 1992 as a licensed sports bookmaker and developed the Southern Hemisphere’s very first sports betting web site in 1996. Today, it offers some 6,000 international sports and horse racing markets through its licensed Australian company, Centrebet Pty Ltd., and a U.K.-registered bookmaker, Centrebet UK Limited, along with online services for poker and casino games operated by Centrebet Limited out of Malta. Prices on the sports betting web site are denominated in Australian dollars, and translations of the markets pages are available in ten European languages as well as four variations of English.
Games to Play
Markets are available for just about any sport or event a bettor might consider, from Australian Rules Football to Volleyball. Clicking on the “Current Market Selector” tab activates a menu of every choice presently available. Simply select a category and the specific options are displayed in the web site window.
American football, basketball, and ice hockey are represented, along with boxing, cricket, darts, golf, tennis, Rugby League and Rugby Union. Special sections appear for wagering on the Commonwealth Games and Football Euro 2012. Among the more exotic offerings are Mixed Martial Arts, handball, floorball, elections, and even entertainment, such as the Academy Awards and Miss World.
Fans for football will appreciate the inclusion not only of U.K. and European fixtures, but also matches of the leagues of Australia, Asia, and the Nordic countries. International and UEFA events are featured. And there is a section dedicated just to women’s football, with such singular opportunities as the Norwegian Women’s Cup.
Racing enthusiasts are not left out, either. Horse racing is featured from France and South Africa as well as Great Britain, Australia, and the United States. There are windows for betting on greyhounds and harness racing, too. Both early prices and futures are available, and special jockey challenges and match betting options are organized by the site.
Apart from traditional ante-post and match wagering, Centrebet also has a Live Betting function. As many as two dozen different markets may be offered during the course of an event, which is portrayed in the betting window via streaming video or as a graphic representation in real time.
Centrebet also has Mobile Betting. It allows registered users to view the latest sports and racing odds 24/7, and then place single bets or multiple wagers directly from the browser of a mobile phone. Account management is possible, too, including deposits, withdrawals, viewing bet history, and more.
Bonuses to Claim
After the first bet has been made, Centrebet offers plenty of promotions to keep bettors coming back. For example, there is a money back offer given for any First Goal Kicker bet made on an AFL game. If the selection kicks a behind before the first goal is kicked in the game, all losing bets are refunded. A similar offer is made for Last Try Scorer bets made on NRL games. If the selection scores at any time, but not the last try, the wager is refunded in its entirety.
Another popular promotion is Refer-a-Friend. When members tell their “mates” about Centrebet and they sign up, each of them collects a $20 free bet. To activate it, all that’s required is a first bet by the new bettor of at least $20. There is no limit on the number of friends who may be referred, and as soon as five have joined, a special bonus is awarded.
