Summary: Bookmaker that works exclusively with Australian and New Zealand punters. Recommended for horse racing betting on the go.
In 2012 they have made a decision to cease their service in all countries except Australia and New Zealand, which are now their main markets. All existing punters from other areas were transferred to the William Hill after they purchased Centrebet and settled as their parent company. They are excellent for coverage of sports and in particular, Aussie Rules (AFL), A-League football and their NRL Rugby League season. Of course, horse racing and cricket are also covered with a full online range of bets so it doesn't seem strange that they are one of the solid Australian bookmakers online. Not the top one, but they can be used as a backup bookie if you want to shop for better prices. Although, the odds in an even match are 1.91/1.91 which isn't anything special. Centrebet is licensed by the Northern Territory Government's, just like Bet365 and few others. For punters that need to bet on the go, Centrebet has prepared two apps. One is for the Android phones and the other one is for the iPhone. They do support Windows and Blackberry devices, but they instead apps must use their mobile version of the website. If you prefer online live betting then as an Australian you are probably aware that Interactive Gambling Act prohibits this type of wagering so there is no single operator that offers it to Australian players. Centrebet has a 24/7 customer service that can help with your account or answer your queries no matter what time of day or night. Banking options are also satisfactory and beside regionally specific methods such as Poli and BPAY, this is one of the rare PayPal betting sites in Australia. Another good thing regarding their PayPal transactions is that unlike Betfair and some other sites they don't charge fees on deposits. Someday they should add minor leagues to their market offer, but apart from that, their offer on major events is very often one of the best on the market.
