Centrebet Australia Introduction
They are something of a trailblazing outfit and were the first bookie in the southern hemisphere licensed to offer online sports betting back in 1996, since when they have honed their offering with a very well-measured focus on sports and horse racing in particular.
While they might not appear to have as many features, enticements or glitzy promotions as some others in the industry, don’t be fooled by the slightly shadowy feel to their website; Centrebet are a serious bookie who have heaps for Aussie punters and sports fans to get involved in.
All the usual Aussie sports are covered, as one would expect, but Centrebet really come into their own with the range and depth of markets available on international sports. From the big ones like soccer and golf, to less popular – but no less interesting from a betting perspective – such as martial arts, darts and Gaelic football.
Centrebet Free bets, bonuses and promotions
The opening offer available to new customers to Centrebet is a 100% match of your first bet with them up to a maximum of $200. Simply deposit and place your first bet and the bonus will be credited to you account as soon as your bet has been settled. As is usual these days the stake will not be returned in any winnings from the bonus and any proceeds from winning bonus bets must be turned over at least once before they can be withdrawn. Note the offer is not available to residents of Victoria and South Australia, who should call up to see what they can get as an alternative.
As well as the mighty generous opening bonus, Centrebet have gone out of their way to provide a decent array of ongoing and one-off promotions to keep you coming back for more. They have a fine range of “money back” offers available at the time of writing, covering the NRL, Super Rugby and AFL and such other sports as golf, tennis, soccer and baseball. The principle of each offer is inherently the same: place a bet on something and if it screws up they’ll refund your bet.
Obviously there are specific parameters you have to work within, but in essence you will almost always find a decent offer that gives you a fighting chance of getting your money back if your bet goes down.
On top of that, they offer racing fans a protest payment bonus, so if your horse is first past the post but loses on protest, they’ll still pay out, as well as racing specific offers and enhanced odds on certain races or horses.
Centrebet Site overview and conclusion
As mentioned, the website itself is a little on the dark side and could perhaps do with a little lightening up. Having said that, from a navigational point of view it can’t be faulted, with everything where you would expect it to be.
They offer dedicated mobile betting products for iPad, iPhone and Android devices, and other mobile devices can access a mobile-optimised version of the main site by visiting m.centrebet.com. All are intuitive and simply to use and are not overly cluttered on the screen.
Centrebet’s customer services are very effective. Available 24/7 by a toll free phone line, email or live chat, staff members are informative, helpful and – importantly – efficient. We tested them with a number of questions about fixed price quinellas and various multiple betting options and they got all the information spot on without having to check with managers.
The recent addition of live video and radio streaming of race meetings is certainly welcome and it could be an area they expand into other sports in the future.
Overall we think Centrebet are a very effective sports betting outfit who put the customers first and enable betting on a wide range of sports and markets with the minimum of hassle. Okay the website is not the prettiest out there, but we forgive them given the number of generous offers and bonuses they have which cover more sports than most. The opening $200 offer is also a very nice welcome gift, which – if you use it wisely – could earn you a very tidy profit.
