BlueBet Sports Review

About BlueBet

BlueBet was only launched in late 2015 but is already attracting a lot of attention in the Australian horse racing betting scene, and there are several good reasons for that. First of all, it’s got the right people behind it – not least founder and CEO Michael Sullivan, who has been one of the top bookmakers in Australia for over three decades now, having previously been the Chief Executive of William Hill Australia, the CEO of Centrebet and the leader of Sportingbet. 


However, the site has built on this strong foundation of reputability by also joining the NSW Bookmaker’s Co-operative, which is an association that guarantees all winning bets placed with their members will be paid. The NSW Office of Liquor, Gaming and Racing is also able to scrutinise all wagers placed on the site in real time.

Horse Racing on BlueBet 

When you visit BlueBet and click ‘Today’s Racing’ in the top left-hand corner of the screen, you’ll be taken to a race card detailing the latest upcoming events at a range of Australian venues, from Belmont, Darwin and the Gold Coast to Randwick, Flemington and Lismore. In doing so, you can toggle between races taking place today, tomorrow and up to five days ahead. 


Naturally, like any good Australian horse racing betting site these days, BlueBet is also outward-looking enough to offer intriguing gambling opportunities for races well beyond our shores, such as at Fairview in South Africa, Newbury, Nottingham and Newmarket in the UK, and – somewhat closer to home – Pukekura and Te Rapa in New Zealand. 


When you’re looking for chances to bet today, you can also peruse such types of bet as ‘double’, ‘ex double’, ‘giant 6’, ‘quaddie’ and ‘treble’. Oh, and it’s also well worth taking a look at the promotions page, as some interesting offers do periodically appear there of relevance to horse racing fans. 

Bottom Line 

It may have only been around for a few years, but BlueBet is helmed by people with considerable experience and impressive track records in the Australian betting industry – and it shows. You’ve got pretty much all of the opportunities to try your luck on the horses that you could hope for here, as well as a nice range of fascinating promotions and an intuitive interface.
