TopSport Podcast Episode 12

The Other Side: TopSport Podcast Episode 12… On this episode of The Other Side, we chat with Tristan from TopSport about a range of topics at a very busy time for bookies! Tristan takes us through their results for the Melbourne Cup Carnival, how they dealt with the major TAB outage last weekend, and the enormous amount of turnover on the US election.

We’re all punters. And we speak to a lot of other punters. On The Other Side podcast series we jump the fence and speak with Tristan Merlehan, Director at TopSport, to get an insight into modern-day bookmaking.

Tristan takes us through how a modern corporate bookmaker operates, the issues they face, and how changes in racing and sport impact the business.

Have you got a question for Tristan about anything we’ve discussed, or anything else related to bookmaking? Just get in touch with us and we’ll ask him on the next episode.
