Palmerbet Review

Palmerbet is one of the newest online betting sites in Australia, though the “Palmer” name has been synonymous with sports wagering in the Sydney racing industry for more than 30 years. When Palmerbet launched in August of 2013 their aim was to offer the best odds in the country and to ‘revolutionise the Australian wagering market’. The jury is still out on that one but Palmerbet has proven itself one of the better Australian online sports betting websites and continues to offer a competitive choice for punters. Palmerbet also happens to be one of the very few wholly Australian owned and operated online wagering sites, so make sure to read on for our full Palmerbet review. 




One of the first things you might notice when logging on to is that the homepage does not focus on horse racing as much as  most other Australian online sports books. Yes, there is a “next five races” box, but it’s off to the side, while the majority of the home page is dedicated to the upcoming feature sporting events such as AFL betting and NRL betting. This is quite refreshing and shows that Palmerbet are keen to stand out from the competition and offer great betting options for lots of different International and Australian sports.

To further prove their dedication to sports wagering, Palmerbet is quite well known for offering better value odds on line betting than their competitors. Early in the piece Palmerbet offered $1.95 lines on all sports, but in recent times that has dropped back to a standard $1.90.

Despite focusing on sports wagering, Palmerbet does also offer very solid racing betting options. Palmerbt has BOB – “Best of the Best”, which sees punters receiving the best of all three major totes, or the top fluctuation of on course bookies for selected metropolitan meetings.

Palmerbet also offers plenty of live betting options, though perhaps not as many as some other Australian online sports betting sites. 

In terms of the betting interface, Palmebet is very user friendly, offering an easy-to-use ‘form’ style of betting which sees markets displayed in the left column, betting options then displayed in the middle and the betting slip shown on the right.

Palmerbet prides itself on being one of the only wholly Australian owned and operated sports betting websites and as such are doing everything they can to keep local punters happy. You can be sure that all your financial transactions are safe and secure with Palmberbet.
