TabTouch is an Australian bookmaker that offers betting on horse racing and sports on their website and mobile app. They have been around since 1998, and are therefore a brand that is well-recognised amongst regular punters.
As you can see from their website, TabTouch’s policy is ‘if it moves, we’ll bet on it.’ They live up to this motto as they have a fantastic array of horse racing and sports markets on their site.
At the top of the home page, you can switch tabs very easily between racing and sports. Once in the racing section, you are then able navigate to where you want to be down the left side of the page. Under the races page, there is a list of every race which is taking place that day. Each race time has a hyperlink so you can click to the betting for that race. TabTouch allow you to bet on fixed odds or you can join a Tote pool with a win or place bet.
The sports tab of the site is also very well designed and allows you to get to the market you want extremely easily. The sports are listed A-Z and each sport has a dropdown button. For example, when you click on football, you have the choice of nine different categories, which include Australia, Europe, European Cups and World.
TabTouch have a live betting page where there is always something in there to place a bet on, whether it is a tennis match from somewhere around the world, soccer or an American sport if you are up early in the morning. If you do want to place a bet on a live market, though, you have to call on the phone due to Federal legislation.
TabTouch do not currently offer new customers a sign-up offer when they open an account with them. They do, however, provide existing customers a number of promotions each week. One of their best offers is Super Bonus 15. On certain races, TabTouch pay out an extra 15% on the win part of the returns of a bet up to $100.
In AFL, TouchTab regularly provide some money- back offers. For example, if you place a bet on any AFL match and the team you back is winning at half-time but then goes on to lose the game, you will get your stake back up to $50.
There is a section on the sports tab of the site which includes the current specials available with the firm, while you can also get a glimpse of past specials such as the correct score bonus on international football where they gave an extra 25% on top of your winnings up to $50 on successful bets.
TouchTab have a media section of their site that can be opened when you are logged into your account. This allows you to watch races and certain sports you have placed a bet on. The company provide a radio service and a form section for horse racing punters. There are also a host of blogs on the site written by experts in their respective sports to hopefully help you find a few winners.
Horse racing punters are able to place bets with TabTouch, which, if successful, would ensure you pick up six-figure plus returns. These Tote products include quinella and trifecta. Obviously, they are not easy to get right, hence the lucrative pay-outs; however, it may just be your lucky day and they don’t require a big stake for you to play.
