About GoldBet

GoldBet comes from the same team that ran BetEasy, which was one of the more impressive online bookmakers of its time.

With over 25 years of experience in the game, the team at GoldBet knows what it takes to run a successful sports and horse racing book, so punters are in good hands.

It’s regulated by the GWIC and it’s an approved wagering partner to the AFL, NRL and many more, so there is every reason to trust and support this wagering platform.

GoldBet website design

GoldBet uses a similar website design to many other Australian bookmakers but it has made enough changes to separate it from the pack.

The upcoming racing markets are displayed at the top of the page and they’re prominent on the home page, so the focus is horse and greyhound racing. However, the best sport betting markets are found on the left-hand side of the page.

Living up to its name, the colour scheme is gold and black. It can take some getting used to as these colours aren’t commonly used with online bookmakers anymore, but we love the retro look about the platform.

It’s a simple site to use and punters don’t have to click around too much to find the desired market.

Using the BetMakers platform, the GoldBet website provides a familiar user experience, making it one of the best betting sites Australia has to offer.

GoldBet sports betting

There is enough sports betting selection to keep punters happy. Markets are offered for all the major sports, including football, Australian rules and NRL.

GoldBet sports betting also has all the American betting markets we know and love, including NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL. Every good online bookmaker needs to offer American sports as they are growing in popularity every year.

Punters get fair odds that align with other bookies in Australia, so we can’t find any fault with the product available.

Our only complaint is the lack of niche sports available. However, unless you’re a huge operation like Bet365 and Sportsbet, there isn’t always much value in offering sports that punters don’t gravitate towards, so we’ll give GoldBet a pass.

GoldBet is not a GoBet partner so they are not currently ranked by us. Our top bookmakers are currently betr, Bet365Neds with Ladbrokes coming in a close second.

GoldBet horse racing

Horse racing is the fourth biggest industry in Australia, so it’s no wonder most online bookmakers promote the horse racing betting markets.

Many Australian books are also run by former horse racing on-course bookmakers, so it comes with the territory and GoldBet horse racing is right up there with the best.

It offers horse racing odds on Australian, New Zealand and global horse, harness and greyhound markets – so it’s a solid option when looking to back our horse racing tips. We love the variety offered at GoldBet and horse racing punters are spoiled for choice – especially on big races like the Melbourne Cup.

Overall, the odds stack up with rival bookmakers and there are some terrific horse racing promotions available throughout the week.

GoldBet customer service

Live chat is available from 5am – 3am, which is a positive for GoldBet. If live chat isn’t 24/7, it’s good to see it operating for all but two hours of the day.

The customer service is professional and you can email the team if live chat isn’t your thing. Reply times are within a few hours.

Punters can also phone or SMS the GoldBet customer service, so there are multiple ways to solve your queries.

GoldBet deposit options

The easiest and fastest way to deposit is using either a debit or credit card. Funds are added to your account instantly, whereas a bank transfer can take up to 72 hours to hit your account.

The GoldBet depositing methods align with what’s accepted at most online bookmakers in Australia and we highly recommend using a card to get the best out of your betting experience.

There is also a crypto deposit option, which is being added to more online bookmakers as we speak.

Bank Transfer MasterCard PayPal Skrill Visa

GoldBet withdrawal options

KYC (Know Your Customer) requirements apply to GoldBet, so you will need to send in some verifying documents to withdraw your funds. Punters usually have to verify their ID and proof of address, but it takes five minutes to complete.

GoldBet requires deposited funds to be turned over at least once before being withdrawn, which is common practice. It stops money launders depositing and immediately withdrawing without placing a bet, so it’s for the safety of punters.

GoldBet app

The GoldBet app that makes it much easier to place your sport and horse racing bets. Unfortunately, the app is only available for iOS users via the AppStore. However, Android users can download the app via the GoldBet website and it’s easy.

It’s a quality betting app and it makes betting on the run that much easier.
