is one the latest Australian-owned and operated bookmaker which is taking the punting game by storm.
was derived from Dean Shannon, who was formerly the CEO for Bookmaker.com.au and more recently Ladbrokes.com.au, comes a state-of-the-art betting platform which is powered by the supremely impressive Amazon Web Services.
Shannon was able to take the best parts of both Bookmaker and Ladbrokes and turn them into his ultimate project, Neds, which has all the makings of becoming one of Australia’s best bookmakers.
soft-launched in early October to coincide with the start of the spring carnival and Neds were quick to launch their advertising campaign to drive new signups.
How do Neds compare?
Neds website design
website is easy on the eye with its distinctive orange and white colour scheme and navigating through the website is very easy.
There are five main tabs down the left side of the Neds.com.au website which clearly indicate Racing, Sport, Live-In Play, and How To. That makes it easy for punters to find exactly what they’re looking for and that’s one of the best attributes of the site.
Below that column is the “Quick Links” section which takes the stress out of finding the major up-and-coming horse racing and sporting events. These could be the MLB Playoff Series, Melbourne Cup or any other major event.
Punters have two options when placing a bet at Neds – they can either click on the option, input the amount and confirm the bet, or they can add the betting option to a betslip if you are looking to build a multi-bet.
Neds horse racing
Neds punters can bet on racing from all around the globe, which includes tote, fixed odds and future betting.
Neds sports betting
Sports betting is the only negative factor about Neds, but having only launched in October, we’re prepared to give them time to sort through the issues.
The complete list of sports to bet on hasn’t been fully finalised, so punters wanting to bet on American college sports can’t do so yet, but we’re predicting Neds to complete their sports betting markets in the coming months.
Apart from that, Neds offers a good range of sport betting options and the odds on offer are some of the best in Australia, especially for punters that enjoy betting underdogs.
Neds customer service
Still in its teething stages, Neds does have some work to do in the customer service department, but all-in-all the signs are positive.
It does have a live chat option, but the response times aren’t flash. Punters do, however, have the option of ringing Neds where a friendly customer service representative will be waiting to either help you, or place a live bet over the phone.
Neds payment methods
Depositing funds into your Neds account can be done via credit card, POLi, BPAY, debit card and bank transfers.
The easiest and quickest deposit method is with your credit or debit card because the funds are automatically put into your account.
No. New laws prevent Australian bookmakers from offering sign up incentives, however, Neds give punters plenty of value with their Punter’s Toolbox and regular racing and sports promotions.
No, Neds do not currently offer any access to live sports or horse racing events but they make up for this with some of the features available in their Punter’s Toolbox.
