Betfair Australia

Found in 2000, Betfair is the world’s biggest and most famous betting exchange. Unlike traditional bookmakers, the exchange platform allows punters to back (i.e buy) and lay (i.e sell) each outcome of an event. Customers decide the odds for their bets and the exchange platform only takes off a percentage to serve as an intermediary. 

In 2006, the Tasmanian Gaming Commission awarded the first - and unique - Australia’s betting exchange license to Betfair. Offering the best value to punters, the platform enjoys a great success among Aussie punters. 

In August 2014, Australian hotel and casino business "Crown Resorts" has fully acquired Betfair Australia. As a consequence, Betfair Australia will only operate the betting Exchange from 2015. Betfair's fixed odds business will be transfered to BetEasy. 

 

Sports and racing markets

The Betfair Exchange betting offer is as extensive as other bookies offers. You will be able to bet on all main domestic and international sports events, plus Australian and international horse races. In addition, the betting tips and news section will provide you with useful information about all upcoming events.

On average, odds are 20% higher than those offered by traditional bookmakers. At the beginning, it could be difficult for new customers to learn how to place a bet at lay price but they will get used to it rapidly. Remember, when you place a lay bet, you’re betting on what will not occur. In any case, your bet will be accepted only if another customer matches your offer. If your bet is unmatched, you will get your stake back.

The minimum online bet stake on the betting exchange is $AUD 5 and $AUS 50 through the betting line.  

Free bets and promotions

New customers will be rewarded with a cash back promotion up to a maximum of $200. If you want to benefit from the welcome offer, register with Betfair, make a deposit and place your first bet within 7 days of opening your account. If you lose it, Betfair will refund you up to $200. 

Existing customers will also enjoy great promotions, such as Refer and earn, Australia’s best odds, Price bonus, AFL special offers and so on.
