History of Luxbet
If a punter is looking for an online gambling site that offers a variety of sports and racing options, then Luxbet should be considered, being one of the top gaming providers in the region. The site was introduced in 2008 by owner/operator Tabcorp Holdings, a publicly held Australian entity. Tabcorp maintains a major presence in the Australian gaming market through its involvement with Tabcorp Gaming Solutions, Sky Sports Radio, and Sky Racing.
In Australia, the site is licensed and regulated by Northern Territory Racing Commission. For other parts of the world, the site is licensed and regulated in the Isle of Man with additional licensing in the UK as required by the Gambling Commission sponsored by the UK government. The site offers betting on sports from all over the world as well as horse and dog racing in Australia, Europe, and North America.
What is the latest Luxbet Sign up Bonus?
Luxbet’s sign up bonus offers punters the opportunity to double their wagering cash with a single deposit. Luxbet will double the amount of the punter’s very first deposit up to 300% – currently the best percentage offer in Australia! Of course, the bonus comes with a variety of wagering and withdraw restrictions that should be reviewed by the punter to avoid any misunderstandings.
Luxbet Website Design
The website has positive and negative points to be considered. On the positive side, the site provides optimal functionality. The site is well organized and is reasonably easy to navigate from one page to the next. The betting options menu is laid out in logical order across the top of the landing page, offering easy and immediate access for punters. The landing page also features “racing next to jump” lists and current popular sporting events that are immediately available. Functionally, drill down event menus lead to pop-up screens with available betting options. It takes a bit of getting used to if you’re familiar with one of the bigger betting agencies like Sportsbet, but you will soon navigate your way around and place bets with ease.
On the negative side, the site is quite dull to look at. It seems to be better suited to punters that have been betting online for a number of years and have grown familiar with this type of layout, as opposed to something that’s new and modern like CrownBet.
What Racing Features does Luxbet have?
The betting options for punters who like to wager on horses or dogs are plentiful. Thoroughbred, Standard-Bred and Greyhound Racing is available from all parts of Australia, plus selected race tracks in Europe, Asia and America. The racing menu of tracks is easy to use and access. Wagers are accepted using tote betting or fixed-odds betting based on punter preference. Standard W/P, exotic and multi-race betting options are available when applicable. The racing menu schedule allows punters to stay organized so they don’t miss a single event.
What are the Sportsbetting Features at Luxbet?
The sports menu features popular Australian sports like rugby, Australian Rules Football, golf and football (soccer), plus sports from around the globe such NFL (American football), NBA (American basketball), tennis, baseball, boxing and hockey. Wagering options include head-to-head match wagering, lines, over/under bets, parlays, future bets and proposition betting. The “next to go” feature keeps punters on par with current games and the fixed-odds and lines are updated on a real-time basis.
Luxbet Customer Service
Punters have a variety of methods for contacting a very competent customer service department. The customer service reps are available 24/7 via phone, postal mail and email. The “live chat” function is available during extended business hours.
Payment Methods available at Luxbet
The Luxbet site offers a limited number of banking options. Deposits and withdrawals can be made using credits cards (Visa, Mastercard), Skrill (Moneybookers), POLi, BPay and direct bank wires. Players are required to submit adequate proof of identity within 90 days or the account will be suspended and withdrawals withheld (standard in Australia).
