Selecting an Online Bookmaker

Free Bookie Bets has made it easy for you to find an online bookmaker to join, as we have the latest information on all the major bookmakers in Australia.

To learn more about a particular bookmaker, simply select a bookmaker from the left menu where we provide all the relevant bookie details, including available free bets & promotions, plus racing & sports bet types, site user interface examples and more.

When you find a bookie that best suits your betting requirements, all you have to do to join is to click on any of the blue text links or the bookie logos which read something similar to "Click here" or "Join now" and you will be taken to the bookmaker to register a new account and receive a free bet if part of the signup offer.

Opening a new Betting Account

open a betting accountWhen you are taken to the bookmaker's site, look for the 'open account' or 'join' now button, possibly shown as 'register' or 'sign up' or something similar. You will then be asked to register your details including a 'username' and 'password' that will allow you to access your account on further visits to your bookmaker.

As we have exclusive deals with many leading Australian bookmakers we have dedicated landing pages which clearly explain what you have to do when you click on a link or banner to join a bookmaker.

Joining Bonuses and Free Bets will vary depending on which bookmaker you join, and by joining through Free Bookie Bets you will be eligible to claim exclusive Free Bets that are worth more than the standard offers available normally.

An example is our very popular 'exclusive' offer deal at William Hill here you receive a 400% First Deposit Bonus up to $200!

Depositing Money into your new Betting Account

deposit fundsOnce you have opened your account, you will be required to deposit money to place a bet or activate a sign up free bet or bonus. Your account control panel will have a section where you can deposit money into your account and most bookmakers accept the following popular deposit options, plus more.

Once funds have cleared into your account you are ready to place a bet and start enjoying the many benefits of betting online.

Placing a Bet Online

Place a betNow that you have money in your account, you are ready to place a bet. Most bookmakers have a similar interface with a betting menu to the left of the screen where you choose a racing or sporting event to bet on and then choose the bet type and amount you want to wager on the event.

A 'bet slip' will then appear with your horse/sport, bet type, the amount you have outlaid, and the return you will receive if successful. The amount you wager will then be deducted from your starting balance.

Betting online gives punters the chance to get much better odds than the Australian TAB and there is no better example than Betfair, who offer much Better Odds than the Tote.

It costs you nothing to join and have a look around Betfair, and once you see how much better Betfair prices are than the TAB, you will be wondering what took you so long to join.

Collecting Your Winnings

collect your winningsIf your bet is settled as a winner then the winnings are paid back into your bookmaker account. To collect your winnings you will need to access the 'account' menu after logging in with your registered 'username' and 'password'.

From the account menu you will find a 'withdraw funds' button. Enter the amount you wish to withdraw and this amount will be credited back to your credit or debit card you used to open the account. The time it takes for bookies to pay winning bets after an event varies, but these days it's usually within minutes of an event finishing.
