New At Sportsbet Is Multi Builder

The already widely punter favourite multi-bet has just been given an enhancement that makes it more potent than any of the banned Bombers, only without the enlistment of any banned substances. 

It is called Sportsbet Multi Builder and it comes courtesy of Sportsbet.

What makes Sportsbet Multi Builder stand head and shoulders above the multi-bet offerings of the other bookmakers is that Sportsbet has designed a multi-bet service that is by far the simplest and most intuitive of anything going. Less time mucking about jumping back and forth betwixt multiple screens and more time spent applying your expertise to finding likely markets means that betting on your computer or mobile device offers enhanced opportunities to grow your bank. Read More...

Whether you want to construct a simple multi of the four best picks available for international thoroughbred racing or put together a 16-legged double octopus multi, Sportsbet Multi Builder will handle all the technical details on one screen so that you know at all times exactly which markets you have picked, how much you have staked on those markets, and most importantly, what those markets will pay from the perspective of a multi-bet slip compared to the same markets entered one-by-one.

  • Place (City) – Pays the best of the three totes.

Sportsbet Review

Daily Racing Specials

Daily Racing Money Back Specials

  • Check Sportsbet's home page every day in the morning so you can find all the money back racing specials!

Jackpot Races

Sportsbet customers in Australia only can now enjoy Jackpot Races. Tote Jackpots usually only apply to people betting at local TABs in their State – thus leaving Interstate bettors unable to bet.

Sportsbet have fixed this problem by allowing members Home Tote for all exotics! This means Sportsbet clients can wager on interstate Totes and grab a piece of the big Jackpots available.

For eg, VIC locals can't get a bet on the NSW Tote Jackpots betting at their VIC TAB, but they can when betting with Sportsbet. And the same for NSW locals who can't wager on VIC Tote Jackpots at a NSW TAB's, but they can now enjoy TAB Jackpots when punting with Sportsbet. Sportsbet clients from all over Australia can bet on Home Tote Jackpots and revel in the big prices!

First 4′s now will get paid at S-TAB dividends – This gives bettors access to a larger Tote betting pool when betting First 4′s. Quinella, Exacta, Trifecta & First 4 Jackpots are available on all meetings every day.

Early Payouts

If Sportsbet members have had a bet and Sportsbet feel it is over the line, they will payout early to save you the tension of waiting out for the outcome. No point of Sportsbet holding onto your money for any longer than is necessary.

For example

  1. After a shattering 1st innings from Michael Clarke, Michael Hussey and Ricky Ponting to set up a classic 1st innings total, Sportsbet payed punters on all single bets on Australia to win the Series then and there, yes, before the other team even had a chance to bat.

  2. Sportsbet paid out on all win bets 5 days before the race on So you think to win the Cox Plate in 2010. Over $250,000 on So You Think was paid out to Sportsbet Clients.

  3. Richmond to be bottom on the 2010 Premiership Table, wood spooners. Richmond were paying $1.25 in Round 4 to be wooden spooners and were looking a sure thing to end up last in the 2010 Footy season. Sportsbet agreed and gave punters their winnings early… That one Sportsbet go wrong, Richmond finished 15th but still paid out over $120,000 to punters who backed them to come last. Won't get much fairer than that.
