About TexBet 

TexBet is the brainchild of well-known on track bookmaker Terry O'Shea. Based in Tamworth, Terry launched the family bookmaker all the way back in 1973 and ever since, has been one of the most well known and respected bookmakers in the racing industry. Along with his son, Wade, the duo launched their online product 'TexBet' in early 2020, going to market with a wide range of both sports and racing markets right out of the blocks.


TexBet Betting Markets

As you'd probably expect from someone with almost 40 years in the horse racing industry, TexBet's focus and strengths lie within their horse racing product. However, it's evident that a lot of work has gone into the sportsbetting side of the webiste as well, where you can find markets on a wide range of sports including all the big leagues in the likes of the AFL, NRL, NBA, NFL, EPL etc. 

Markets on a massive range of domestic and international sports Racing betting markets on Australian, New Zealand and more international race meets
Slightly lacking on the range of individual markets within a sporting event Good range of exotic betting markets including quinella, exacta, trifecta, first four and quaddies

TexBet Features

One of the key features of the TexBet product is their easy to use interface on their website. Users will be familiar with the product if they have used and of the BetMakers products before which include BBet, BetDelixe, RobWaterhouse, RealBookie, PicnicBet, CrossBet and ZBet. The racing ticker at the top of the page is fantastic and an easy way to see what is coming up.

Another great feature of the TexBet website is the ability to watch live racing through the website. While the available meets isn't as vast as the likes of Sportsbet or Bet365, there is still a solid number of races available to watch on the website and it's simple to place bets while you watch. 


TexBet Website

As we mentioned above, the BetMakers solution is incredibly easy to use and offers some great features. The best of all is the racing ticker at the top of the page, which can be seen in our screenshot below. The website uses the classic three panel system with the menu on the left, the markets in the middle and the betslip on the right hand side. Live chat and promotions are also available right from the homepage, which is handy considering you have to use the browser on your phone to access TexBet on account of thier lack of a mobile app.
