Introduction to TopBetta
TopBetta Holdings is one of the most proactive gambling corporations in Australia and have recently been granted more money to development its global betting platform.
Thriving in the market since being introduced in 2016, TopBetta has attracted a large customer base due to their quality betting platform.
A bookmaker going places and with plenty of scope, TopBetta is quickly becoming one of the best bookmakers in Australia.
TopBetta Website Design
If there’s any criticism of TopBetta it’s the website layout.
There is no website-facing page to greet customers, instead the landing page is the horse racing hub and it’s congested with race times.
This makes it tough for beginner punters to know where to navigate and it’s even tough for the experienced punters to know where to go.
The sports sections are easier on the eye. They are presented well with logos of the teams involved, whether it be basketball or football.
That’s a nice touch from TopBetta and it’s something other bookmakers don’t do, so kudos for making up for the poor interface.
All-in-all, the website design is flawed, but TopBetta are primarily focused on horse racing markets so we’re not surprised at the layout.
Racing Features at TopBetta
TopBetta is run by passionate horse racing folk and it shows on the website.
They have markets for a wide range of local and international racing events, from Australia, New Zealand and Asia.
The best feature is TopBetta’s “G.O.A.T” – Greatest of all Totes. This ensures punters will get the best tote odds on offer and you will never get below the official starting price.
That’s a great bonus for punters and it’s something that sets TopBetta above the rest. Securing the best odds is key to making a profit and TopBetta are doing their best to ensure punters get every chance.
TopBetta doesn’t offer any futures betting in the racing markets. That’s a big negative for a bookmaker that prides themselves on the racing market, but the focus is clearly on the tote markets.
Sport Features at TopBetta
TopBetta doesn’t have the biggest range of sporting options to choose from, but they offer competitive prices and we like the touch of adding the team logos into the betting interface.
The best aspect of TopBetta’s sporting platform are the tournaments. Tournament betting hasn’t quite lifted off the ground with other bookmakers, but TopBetta has put priority on it.
Punters can start their own tournaments or join existing tournaments. Buy in prices can range from $11 to $110 and there’s up to $10,000 on offer in some of the bigger tournaments.
It’s something a little different, but we’re confident tournament betting will become a big drawcard for bookmakers in the near future.
TopBetta Customer Service
The overall customer experience at TopBetta is good, but they do lack in some areas that other bookmakers excel at.
There is no live chat option and the phone option is only available from 8am-9pm AEST. Some other bookmakers offer 24/7 customer service.
That being said, they are quick to reply during business hours and always have the customers best interests at heart.
TopBetta Payment Methods
TopBetta offers all the usual depositing avenues, such as credit card, debit card, POLi, PayPal (only for Australian residents), BPAY and bank transfer.
The depositing process used to be quite lengthy, but TopBetta has made good headway into making it quicker for both deposits and withdrawals.
Punters can get their money withdrawn to either their credit or debit card, or through a bank transfer.
Getting it back onto your card is the much quicker option as bank transfers can take up to three days.
