Well known to the Australian public thanks to its founder Michael Sullivan, BlueBet has established itself as an innovative site for unusual games and betting. Over time, the brand has become one of the most exciting platforms in the country, with over thirty years of experience in the gaming industry. It is also a company that has received the approval of local leagues and federations such as the NRL, Australia Rugby Union, Tennis Australia and the Australian Football Association. To date, improvisation is the name of the game and customers can expect a lot of surprises. According to sources, there are plans to extend the portal to other states in the Americas.
Previously, BlueBet operated under the regulation of the New South Wales authorities. Thus, all activities are governed by the gaming regulator South Australian Gambling Codes of Practice. Since 2021, the betting establishment holds an official license from the Northern Territory Racing Board. This approval guarantees BlueBet’s legitimacy and makes bettors much more confident in their transactions. A word of warning: only residents of Australia and the state of Iowa can benefit from the bookmaker’s services.
Website and mobile application
BlueBet unveils a website with a minimalist design. This feature brings an exceptional touch to the design and seems to fit perfectly with its overall aesthetic. Everything has been organized to provide a stimulating gaming experience. In addition, the layout is easy on the eye and easy to handle, thanks to the perfect alignment of the menus and control buttons. Behind a large betting area, combined with an excellent display style, is a coloured background in shades of blue, giving a less cluttered and more defined look.
BlueBet has also developed separate native applications, compatible with both Android and iOS operating systems. The programs can be downloaded by means of a search via their respective app shops. Alternatively, simply click on the download links displayed on the homepage. A review reveals the extreme effectiveness of the tool, especially for mobile users betting from Australia. The installation of the device takes only a few seconds and its execution allows access to all the features and services available on the source site.
The fluidity of the data on the BlueBet platform makes the registration process of future customers very easy. To have an active account, please follow the steps below:
- Join the site, type in the URL and then press the registration icon, located on the upper right-hand side of the page;
- Fill in the form with the required personal data;
- Enter a username and password;
- If you wish, you have the possibility to place a deposit. The operator will usually allow you to place your bets immediately, provided you supply your credit card details.
Bonuses and promotions
In accordance with regulations stipulated by Australian law, BlueBet remains subject to bonus restrictions. As a result, new registrants will not be entitled to a welcome offer. To compensate for this, the bookmaker offers several varieties of daily and weekly promotions to regular customers. We advise you to regularly check the specified section as offers may change from time to time. These are usually in the form of improved odds and free bets. It should be noted that all promotions require a login.
BlueBet and the betting offer
From a general perspective, all of BlueBet’s activities revolve largely around sports and horse betting. The aim is to offer users a style appropriate to Australian rules. Therefore, the bookmaker has decided to prioritize Australian football, horse racing and rugby. However, betting is still open on rare sports such as surfing and darts. Special bets, including politics and festive events, are added to the list. The race directory offers a wide selection, with fixed but very competitive odds. Indeed, the bookmaker provides strong coverage of Australian and international horse, harness and greyhound events. Another important point is that an update in October 2021 promotes the tracking of ‘Bluey’s Tips’ on many races. BlueBet places a certain limit on in-play bets, especially when bets exceed a value of $50. In order not to break the continuity of the games, it would make more sense to use the phone when first launching the bets. At present, the bookmaker places baseball as a popular market in the sports betting sector. Furthermore, the lack of a live streaming function calls BlueBet’s position into question, despite the existence of a dedicated live section. However, we can count on the responsiveness of those in charge to add this option in the near future.

BlueBet offers punters the opportunity to deposit and withdraw money via various methods, both on the website and by phone. We distinguish between :

In accordance with Australian protocol regulations, the player will be required to maintain a similar payout option to the original. It should also be borne in mind that no winnings can be recovered without verification of identity and bank details.
