Luxbet Review - $250 Bonus for Australian Customers

Luxbet have been operating in Australia since 2008 and their reputation has continued to grow over the years, to the point now where they are one of the leading operators in the industry. They offer betting on a range of different sports and horse racing.

The sportsbook is owned by Tabcorp Holdings, who have a wealth of experience in the betting and gaming industry. They have ensured there is a strong product for their customers with a website that looks slick and is easy to use.

Luxbet have put together a site that is designed well, which means punters are able to log on and reach the market they want to bet on efficiently. All the sports the firm offers betting on are listed in alphabetical order. Once you open these sports up, the different competitions within that sport are then itemised. In the centre of the page, the leading sports and horse racing markets from that day are featured. These tend to be the most popular events so if there is a golf Major taking place or a Grand Slam tennis tournament, you would expect to find the latest betting there.

Horse racing punters will enjoy betting with Luxbet as they offer odds on all Australian racing early in the morning of the meetings. There is also the opportunity to bet on global racing, including the Breeders’ Cup from the USA, Royal Ascot from the United Kingdom and Dubai World Cup. The races are listed in time order so you if you like to bet race to race, the next action will be at the top of the pile.

The sports Luxbet offer betting on include Australian rules, cricket, golf, rugby league, rugby union, soccer, tennis and many more. The site is particularly good with its offering of markets on American sports such as the NBA, NFL and MLB. If you enjoy your American action and like betting on it, you are well catered for.

In sports such as soccer, there are so much more markets available other than the outright betting that you can get involved in. Luxbet will offer odds on the total number of goals, the number of corners, if both teams will score, first goalscorer and anytime goalscorer.

Luxbet allow you to place multiples across all of their markets on your bet slip, unless certain legs of the multiple are directly related to another leg on your bet. The bet slip automatically calculates your return each time you add a new selection into the slip.

Odds & Promotions
