Bookmaker are one of the smaller online betting sites in Australia but don't let that fool you, they are one of three sites that are run by Ladbrokes who are one of the biggest gambling agencies in the world. Bookmaker utilise the same technology as their big sister so you will have no worries in regards performance.
Bookmaker now owned by Ladbrokes are one of the well established smaller operators within the Australian online betting industry and have always offered punters new and innovative products.
Betting Man Opinion
The Bookmaker interface is an excellent design and they have made their betting site easy to navigate even for the novice punter.
Bookmaker has a simple layout and the colour scheme is pleasing on the eye.
The main menu bar at the top of the page consists of eight tabs for quick navigation to the days horse racing cards and sporting events (one of the only sites to section off the sports and racing panels which makes the screen less busy but only a click away to the sports).
The next tab takes you to the Novelties section that consists of out of the normal betting such as elections and entertainment.
A dedicated promotions tab takes you to all the current offers Bookmaker have running, I will talk about these in the promotions section.
The next tab takes you to the How To section which is a must for any online betting site to help new account holders learn the ropes.
Bookmaker have an extensive how to section and they have pretty much everything covered.
They explain about their key products including the Bookmaker Visa card, depositing with Neteller and then the Bet Quiz.
Bookmaker launched their ATM card back in 2014 and at the time it was a masterstroke marketing ploy.
The like of this hadn't been seen in Australia before and the betting public loved the fact you could place a bet and collect your winnings just after the result.
It's a great resource if your out down your local watering hole as you now don't have to bet with the TAB or on the Tote you can use your mobile, get a fixed price and collect within minutes.
The last tab takes you to the Contact Us page which is featured below in our customer service section.
Once you login to Bookmaker your My Account tab will also appear and it gives you quick access to numerous things including, pending bets, deposits and withdrawals.
Bookmaker Form Guide
Bookmaker have kept their form guide nice and simple in one section but they also offer a full form breakdown if you click on the placing numbers before the horses name.
If you click the horses name then a simple form guide will appear and is easy to follow with enough information for you to be more informed.
The Bookmaker form guide has the horses progeny, age, trainer and jockey with a brief runner comment from their expert.
There is a nice one click feature that allows all the comments and the simple form to appear just by clicking the 'Show All Runner Comments link'.
Career prize money, runs, last six and last fifteen races are also shown along with track, ground and distance stats.
Bookmaker also include two graphs in their form guide for career percentage of win/place and any price fluctuations since betting opened.
Bookmaker are one of the few online bookmakers to have a form guide for harness racing.
Bookmaker Mobile App
Bookmaker have both Andriod and iPhones apps and both are top notch.
The Bookmaker mobile app is easy to use and is one of the best mobile betting apps out there.
Bookmaker update their mobile app software as technology changes so you never miss a beat.
One feature that Bookmaker have over some other betting sites is their 'Quick Bet' slip which really helps when betting using a mobile app.
