Australians are the World’s biggest gamblers. When measured on a per capita basis,
the Economist illustrates that Australians lost over $1,000 per resident adult in
2013. To put this in context, Singaporeans, also notorious gamblers lose over $900
per person. New Zealanders lose only about $500 per person. Canadians, Swedes and
British lose about $400 per resident per year. Although these numbers might indicate
worrying behaviour, the infographic indicates that the bulk of losses achieved by
Australians comes through non-
The regulation of all gambling including these poker machines is done at the state
and territory level. The government is currently in the position of profiting massively
through these poker machines, with billions in annual revenue, while concurrently
maintaining legislation meant to prevent private companies from profiting from online
versions of these games due to worries over ‘problem gambling’. Usage of pokies
in Australia have not been curtailed, but online sportsbooks are officially mandated
to strip out all casino and interactive games from their offerings for Australians

The latter group may risk Australian legal action. Though it is unclear how this might manifest itself as the companies in this category all operate offshore from gambling havens. Australia’s laws do not punish the individual consumer for registering or gambling with any of these companies. The laws do not restrict the movement of money to these companies in the way that laws in the United States of America restrict such transactions. Credit card companies in the USA will not process transactions to online gambling providers.

Betting Site List Methodology
The goal of this site, is to provide Australians with information about the best few online sportsbooks from an Australian bettor’s perspective.
Here is the full list of criteria that has been used to establish inclusion into the list of the best Australian sports betting sites.
It is key to understand that this is how each service is reviewed. Many other sportsbook review sites list their reviews of every company they look at. Even if they have a negative point to make, if not a fully negative review, they still post the sportsbook’s logos and banners which allows them to trade on the name of a sportsbook they don’t fully recommend. Such sites also tend to use tools like bogus grades and star ratings to promote a sportsbook without reasons to justify the grade
I don’t approach reviews in this manner. My list is in black and white. A betting site is either in my list, or not in my list. Recommended or not, and the list is in alphabetical order. Plus there are only four sites. Would you read through a list of the 30+ sportsbooks that I reviewed? Would you then likely register and begin betting with site #17? Highly doubtful. Read the reviews, make your own choice, then please play responsibly only wagering what you can afford.
