Luxbet is one of the most trusted corporate bookmakers given it is backed by Tabcorp.
The website is very good, as you’d expect with the reassurance of Tabcorp. It’s simple to place a bet on, and easy to find whatever option you are looking for. They provide great offers throughout the year, and are near the top of the tree when it comes to the Spring Carnival.
They also provide live scores of certain sporting events, and there is no minimum deposit for a majority of the deposit methods on offer, which again will pull the heart strings of small punters.
The downsides are that their customer service, whether it be live chat, or over the phone, they can be ordinary at times.
When you sign up to Luxbet and make an initial deposit of $50, they’ll give you a $150 bonus bet meaning you start betting with $200!
Their Mobile App is one of the best in the business, with it’s simple format for racing and sports being the sealer, along with the fact that they can provide live audio of Sky Sports Radio, which is a big advantage.
Luxbet has won a lot of fans due to the fact they are backed by Tabcorp. It’s a similar service to the TAB.com.au website but with a corporate bookmaker feel.
With this comes some great promotions and unlike the TAB you’re getting the best of all 3 totes or the starting price on Australian horse racing.
Their app allows you to use a 4 digit passcode to login which is handy and avoids the frustration of always entering your password.
There is nothing fancy about the app itself. One positive is the fact you can stream Sky Racing Radio straight from the app, a benefit other apps don’t have.
The form guides are more detailed than most other apps which is both a positive and a negative. The detailed form guides are on a separate page which makes it difficult at times to compare form.
Overall it’s a basic app that gets the job done. That said it’s a much improved service than that of the TAB.
Luxbet.com came on to the scene with a bang and had many people expecting big things. The bookmaker is seen as Tabcorps breakout into the world of corporate bookmakers and at first this had many punters excited.
Although still offering a good, reliable service Luxbet has appeared to drop offer the radar a little. Although still offering a very generous sign up bonus bet of $150 when you create an account and deposit $50.
Their mobile site is easy on the eye but once we logged in and had a look around we found it to be quite basic. Disappointingly their were no form guides available and unlike their full website and mobile app we were unable to stream live radio through their mobile site.
Hopefully these are two issues that can be fixed in future and would take it a step towards matching their competitors mobile sites.
We liked the Luxbet app and would recommend any punter to use their full website.
Luxbet’s Best of the Best guarantees the best price of the three totes and the official on course Top Fluctuation, which means you’ll always secure the best price. It's also available on every metro horse race, every Saturday, up to 30 mins before jump.
