HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST HORSE RACING BETTING SITE

There are many important factors to consider when choosing a horse racing betting site, several of which we’ve detailed below - and you can use our site to evaluate and compare to find the best for you.

Markets and Coverage

The majority of Australian bookmakers will of course offer markets on domestic horse racing, particularly on big events like those we listed above. But perhaps you want to make wagers beyond win/place bets or on smaller daily races, or perhaps even international races. Make sure that the site you choose offers the events and types of bets you’re looking for.

Odds

Many sites may claim to offer the best odds, but they’ll vary from race to race between bookmakers. Generally, though, you’ll find that some bookies offer consistently better racing odds than others, so do your research before registering.

Reviews

The easiest and fastest way to learn about bookies’ offerings is by reading our reviews, which include details like ongoing promotions, software and graphics, banking methods and more. Let us do the hard work for you so you can spend more time making the best bets.
