This TopBetta Review will provide a full overview of this bookmaker and the best betting features. This review is our personal opinion and based on our recent interactions.
Originally launched in 2010, TopBetta offers a different betting experience among the Australian bookmaker industry with tournament contests available for its user base. They also offer traditional betting markets and more of what you would expect from a bookmaker. They're owned by the PlayUp company and comply with Australian betting regulations.
Banking Options - This bookmaker offers a good variety of deposit options and a bank withdrawal.
Betting Markets - At this bookmaker, they offer a large range of betting markets for Racing and Sports around the world. Featured sports are available from the main menu and the latest markets are easy to find. There's betting markets for local race meets as well as International events.
Betting Tournaments - The difference maker at this bookmaker is the opportunity to participate in betting tournaments with other users. There are generous prize pools to be won as users compete against each other in a leaderboard style contest.
Mobile App - The app is available for download on iPhone devices and can be installed onto Android mobile devices. It offers all the features of the desktop website with a simple layout and easy navigation.
Player Bets - One of the more unique features at this bookmaker is Player Bets. It allows users to create a custom bet relating to a players performance in an upcoming match. The sports included can range from NBA to the EPL and more.
Promotions - They have fixed betting promotions for racing, such as protest payout and pump up the odds. Also, there can be sports betting promotions available depending on the time of year.
This section will detail how to create a TopBetta account whether you're using the desktop website or mobile app.
The most unique part about this bookmaker is the ability to join betting tournaments with other TopBetta users. All the active tournaments can be accessed from the main menu. The number of tournaments that are available depends on the time of year. During this review in early March, they only offered EPL and Racing tournaments but during Summer, there will be more options to choose from such as AFL and NRL. Using EPL as an example, there are season long tournaments and users can choose from at least 3 different contests with the difference being the prize pool offered. During the week, Racing tournaments will be on offer for popular race days such as Saturday and Sunday. Entering a tournament will require an entry fee and the cost will depend on the prize pool. When there's a large prize pool available, the entry fee will cost more as a result. Contestants within the tournament will be placed into a leaderboard and they're ranked by the amount of currency they hold. After the tournament ends, the selected places (depends on the contest) will share the prize pool with 1st place taking out the largest prize.
In terms of the mobile app, it includes all the great features that this bookmaker offers into a condensed version for mobile devices. It can be downloaded from the Apple App Store when searching "TopBetta". While for Android, they offer a download link via the website and this will install the app onto your device. When you first open the app and log in, you'll see all the latest tournaments and it's easy to enter a contest straight away. The bottom menu gives access to the Racing and Sports betting markets. The Racing tab shows all the upcoming races and you'll be able to tab between local or International races. Sports betting markets require a bit more navigation but they do show upcoming sporting events from the Sports tab. The unique Player Bets feature can also be selected from the app and is displayed similarly to the desktop website. For depositing funds, they offer the same options that are available via the desktop website as well. Another nice feature of the app is the pin code login setup. It allows users to set up a 4 digit code that will be used to log in instead of entering a username/password every time.
At this stage, TopBetta does not offer live in-play betting odds on either the desktop website or mobile app.
At this bookmaker, they offer a live streaming service for Racing only. It can be viewed on the desktop website and mobile app. When live streaming is available, it will automatically display at the bottom of the website or app.
This bookmaker has both Sports and Racing betting fans covered with a nice range of betting markets. The sports betting markets are well designed with logos for popular sports such as AFL, NRL and NBA. They have future markets as well, such as NRL Grand Final winner. For most sports, they'll offer a good range of unique markets that can be chosen by selecting "more markets" per event. While for Racing punters, they have a massive amount of betting markets available for Horse Racing, Greyhounds and Harness Racing. Every race in Australia has a betting market, while they also have betting odds for events in New Zealand, Hong Kong and more. The bet types come with the simple options of fixed win or place and mid-tote betting as well as exotics. Other unique bet types include favourite vs field, head to head (one runner to beat another) and odds vs evens. There's also a decent form guide that will provide an overview of each runner and a few comments on the best chances to win the selected race.
In this section of the review, we'll summarise the banking options on offer at this bookmaker.
Credit Card - The most popular deposit option and it's available on the mobile app or desktop website. The minimum deposit amount is $10.
POLi - Instantly deposit funds into your account with POLi.
BPay - BPay payments are available at this bookmaker.
Bank - They provide the ability to transfer funds via a bank transfer. They currently bank with NAB.
Bank Withdrawal - At this stage, they only offer bank withdrawals by a bank transfer and the minimum amount is $20.
Customer support is an important factor in choosing a new bookmaker as issues do arise sometimes. With TopBetta, they will be available 24/7 and offer multiple contact methods. They have a 1300 customer service number for their clients. There's also the possibility of emailing the team directly. Furthermore, a live chat option is available for customers and this can help sort out any quick issues or questions you may have.
This section will look at the pros and cons of betting with TopBetta.
Customer Support - It's easy to contact the team at this bookmaker with a number of support options. They have a live chat feature, phone service 24/7 and a direct email address.
Tournaments - One of the best features at this bookmaker is betting tournaments. It's a nice change from betting against the bookmaker as you compete with other users to win some nice prizes.
Live Betting - They're not a great option if you're looking for a bookmaker that offers live streaming of sports or live in-play betting odds.
Withdrawal Methods - At the moment, they only offer a withdrawal via bank transfer and this can take some time to clear into your account.
If you're looking for something unique in the Australian bookmaker industry, TopBetta offers it with their tournament style of betting. Instead of betting against the bookmaker, this gives their users the opportunity to play against each other and in turn, win some nice prize money. However, they also offer the same betting experience as a normal bookmaker in Australia. There's a good range of Racing and Sports betting markets for users to enjoy. They offer a variety of deposit methods, a nicely designed mobile app and the support team is easy to get in touch with. The Player bets is a customisable and unique feature as well. Overall, they would be more recommended for Racing betting as they arguably focus more in this area. This shows as they don't currently offer live streaming of Sports or live in-play betting markets.
