Australian bookmaker bonus bets

Your complete guide to: comparing and finding a new bookmaker, new account free bets and bonus bets from your existing betting agency.

Bonus eligibility

Our site let's you compare and claim different betting offers from Australian betting sites. Eligible residents over the age of 18 can claim new customer free bets from betting agencies on this page, simply by registering an account with a bookmaker. Bookmaker offers on sports like the AFL and NRL, are found under the betting promotions section of our website.

Due to the different legislation provided by each state, betting promotions are available to a wider Australian audience than are sign up bonuses. If you are a NSW resident, you will not see any form of enticement of inducement to bet on our website, owing to new legislation provided by Office of Liquor and Gaming NSW. You will still see all of our bookmaker reviews, explanatory content and sports previews. An explanation of the changes to the NSW legislation affecting bonus bets and inducements can be found here.

An introduction to bonus bets

  • There are sign up free bets and existing customer bonuses
  • There are usually turnover requirements associated with these offers
  • Most bookmakers require you to use your bonus on a selection with odds greater than $1.40
  • Bonus bets are usually valid for a set period of time, ie. They must be used within 30 days.

Free bets aren’t just limited to new customers

The landscape for free bets and bonus offers has changed considerably in the 5 years we have been publishing online. Several new online betting companies have entered the Australia industry, others have come and gone; and the offers have changed significantly.

Whilst free bets are still used as sign up welcome offers, the big change has come in the form of bonus bets offered by bookmakers to their existing customers. We publish both forms of betting incentives.

Bookmaker promotions

Over on our bookmaker promotions page, you can navigate to current betting offers on your favourite sport event. The offers vary from bonus bets, to boosted odds and cash back specials. All of them are valuable in their own right. If you see an offer from a bookmaker that you don’t have an account with, you can of course register with them via our site and receive the deal on offer.

Eligibility status for free bets

If you’re from Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia or Western Australia; you won’t be eligible for any of the welcome bonuses on offer for registering a new account. This is due to government legislation in each state. All is not lost though, residents of VIC, NSW, SA and WA can take advantage of the bonus bet promotions offered to existing customers.

Who should I bet with?

Selecting a bookmaker to bet with can be a daunting task. There are many considerations like: new account deals, weekly promotions, betting products offered, the value of the odds provided and free competitions.

We provide reviews of the best Australian bookmakers so that you can easily sift through the betting operators that provide the services that most appeal to you.
