Bookmaker came on to the scene in 2012 with big plans to get a high market share. A year later and they were bought out by English giants in Ladbrokes. Do they have what it takes to compete with the major bookies? We do the research to find out.

Bookmaker.com.au were acquired by Ladbrokes in 2013 and since then their marketing has dropped significantly. This doesn’t mean it’s still not a great option for placing a bet.

While the website might not be as visually appealing as others, it’s functionality is great and has some great additional extras such as free live streaming of all Victorian races.

The great thing about Bookmaker is their $400 sign up bonus allows you to divide it into smaller bets giving you better bang for your buck. Unlike some bookmakers who only match the first bet Bookmaker.com.au will match your first deposit which is great for smaller bettors.

Ladbrokes were the first ones to introduce pre-paid Visa debit cards to the bookmaker industry in Australia and they have done well to also introduce this to Bookmaker.com.au. Registering for a cash card is simple and once it arrive activation is quick and easy and you can be withdrawing your winnings in minutes!

We can only hope they stick around as while they might not be the best bookmaker overall they still have plenty to offer.
