Check out our RealBookie review of the website and features and sign up for an account using any of the links below!
Far from being a faceless, corporate machine, RealBookie is backed by licensed on track bookmakers, men who have been there and done that with years of experience in the gambling industry. Mark Sampieri is at the forefront of that, along with Chris Lester, who has held a bookmakers license in Victoria since 2013 and is currently the Joint Chairman of the Victorian Bookmakers Association.
RealBookie head honchos are experts in the racing industry but they have also strived to offer a solid offering of sports betting markets for Aussie punters.

As you'd probably expect, RealBookie really focuses in hard on the racing industy when it comes to both their selection of markets and the daily and weekly promotions they offer. On any given day, you can get a wide range of both domestic and international race meets in gallops, harness and greyhounds.
RealBookie have also opened with a solid range of sports betting markets. While it doesn't rival the big boys in the likes of Sportsbet and Ladbrokes, you can still expect to find around 20 markets in a NBA game for example.
RealBookie have some solid features which will make the betting experience more fun and easier on the platform.
RealBookie TV is a great companion channel to Sky Racing. It shows some of the less popular race meets from around Australia and internationally that you might not see on Sky Racing and is available from the RealBookie homepage with one simple click.
The RealBookie ticker at the top of the homepage is one that really stands out against other online bookmakers. It makes it very simple to see the upcoming races and updates in real time unlike others, where you have to refresh the page to update the ticker.
Be sure to use our RealBookie promo code when creating your account after clicking the links in this article for the best promotions and offers! The RealBookie promo code that is exclusive for BeforeYouBet readers to use when you make your first deposit is 'BEFOREYOUBET100'.
While the RealBookie website is certainly nothing that is going to blow your socks off, it does have a solid userface that is easy to use and is not going to annoy you in anyway. They utilise the classic three panel system with your menu on the left, markets in the middle and your betslip on the right hand side.
Their promotions are easy to find and they have some really nice looking banners displaying their current and upcoming specials. Terms and conditions are easy to find and their live chat is always readily available via the homepage.
In summary, the RealBookie website is pretty much in line with what we have come to expect from on course bookmakers brancing out into online products like RobWaterhouse, TexBet and WinnersBet.
Unlike some of those other newer online bookmakers that we mentioned above, RealBookie actually offers a mobile app that is pretty slick and easy to use. Again, it's no where near as developed as the big boys in the likes of Sportsbet and Ladbrokes, but it certainly won't give you any usability problems and after using it for an extended period, we are yet to run into any bigs or glitches.
The RealBookie promotions are easily visible on both website or mobile app, but due to state legislation, you must be logged into an account to view the current promotions. You do not, however, need to deposit any money or even enter your credit card details to sign up for an account, so it's certainly worth doing so just to view the promotions at least.
RealBookie generally offer a feature racing promotion daily which centres around the key race meets of the day (ie. Caulfield, Randwick, Flemington ect). They also offer sports promotions for events in the NBA, AFL, NRL, Tennis, Soccer and NFL.
Unfortunately, we are unable to display any of these promotions on our website outside of teh truly generic ones, but if you sign up for an account, you can view all of the current promotions in minutes.
RealBookie customer support is readily available via phone, email or live chat. We reccomend the live chat avenue if you have a simple query. The support typically responds within a few minutes if you message them during business hours.
