TABtouch, formerly known as ‘Ozbet’ or ‘WA TAB’ (Western Australian TAB), has managed to capture a large part of the betting market across Australia. Evidence of this can be seen in the more than 300 shops across the Western region. Currently based in Darwin, the company hosts over 25,000 active users, in addition to a substantial annual revenue. Despite some shortcomings, notably its restriction to many countries, the major advantages of TABtouch lie in the quality of its services, its odds margins and the efficiency of its customer service.
General presentation of the site
In addition to a modern and intuitive design, TABtouch has a distinctive brand image throughout the site. As the homepage demonstrates, the interface places a particular emphasis on horse racing.

These features help you find the event of your choice and place your bets in no time at all. If you feel like trying your first chance, a column leads you to the entry form. Apparently there is no dedicated casino section available, but there is a list of all the current and upcoming events, as well as the types of sports and races that are available. Apparently there is no dedicated casino section yet.

Currently, the company is operated by RWWA or Wagering Western Australia, as defined by the Western Australia Racing and Betting Act 2003. Other regulations governing the activities of this body include the Racing and Betting Levy Act and the Gambling and Betting Commission Act 1987.

TABtouch on mobile
For users of mobile devices, TABtouch has integrated a mobile application for Android and iOS operating systems. The software can be downloaded via Play Store or App Store. With this program, players will have access to all of the bookmaker’s services. However, the mobile website allows them to place bets without any downloads. From a smartphone or tablet, they will benefit from similar features as the classic desktop version.
Bonuses and promotions
Until further notice, TABtouch is not allowed to offer any welcome or deposit bonuses, and the reason for this is the introduction of new laws in the Australian gaming market. However, the operator is doing its best to compensate for this shortcoming. To encourage its customers, TABtouch offers a free branded polo shirt and a cash reward called ‘Super Bonus 15’. The bookmaker limits the bet amount to $100 but can give you an extra 15% in winnings if you are successful.
