Graeme Sampieri has over 40 years of experience as a bookmaker.
He is widely recognised as one of the pioneers of modern Victorian bookmaking. He continues to field on the rails at all Melbourne metropolitan race fixtures.
His son Mark, worked alongside his father for 15 years until 2001 when he took out he own bookmaking license, and formed a partnership with his father in 2003 to form the first Victorian corporate bookmaking partnership, with the name G&M Sampieri Bookmaking.
This partnership allowed the partners to cater to a larger range of punters, by offering more services and to allow them to target a larger number of race meetings than they could have individually.
They offer their services at all the metropolitan race meetings, and at a few selected Victorian provincial race tracks, including Seymour, Werribee, Mornington, Kilmore, Warrnambool, Wangaratta, Yarra Glen, Kyneton, and Geelong among others.
They offer fixed odds horse race betting on race meetings throughout Australia. They also offer Top Fluctuation, provided you place the wager 30 minutes before starting time, and guarantee the top official price fluctuation.
In addition they offer a product known as Starting Price Guarantee. This is where you can wait and place your wager closer to race time, and guarantee that if the odds increase in your favor at start time, you will get the better price. They accept bets on all metropolitan races in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide, and can individualize any betting option to suit the punters needs.
There are no limits on metropolitan racing, but if in case your planning to win over ten thousand in one bet, you are requested to call three minutes before race start. There is a limit on country racing to $5000 in one bet, but this can be negotiated before hand.
You can place bets over the telephone, and contact them at either on their mobiles, or at their office numbers. To open an account you need to download the application form and mail it to them.
These details are available on their website.
