They were originally government owned, but in Australia most have been privatised. In Victoria, for instance, the Victorian Totalisator Agency Board was privatised in 1994.

If you win with a Bonus Bet, you will receive the ‘profit’ portions of the bet

If you win with a Bonus Bet, you will receive the ‘profit’ portions of the bet and TAB will receive the stake portion of the bet. TAB do not place any further rules around winnings turnover or minimum odds, the profit will be allocated to your Account Balance and can be used as you see fit, to bet again or withdraw. Suppose you use a $10 Bonus Bet at odds of $2 and the bet wins. You will receive $10 in your Account Balance, the stake of $10 will return to TAB.

How to Split the Bonus Bet?

According to TAB you can now split your Bonus Bet from the Bonus Bet screen in the My Account section of your TAB iOS app, Android app, or TAB.com.au when you are logged in. Once you have logged in, navigate to My Account and then go to Bonus Bet. Your eligible Bonus Bet will show a green button that says ‘Split Bonus Bet’.

Note that you can split your Bonus Bet into 2, 3, 4 or 5 new Bonus Bets. You can continue to split your eligible Bonus Bet as many times as you like as long as your Bonus Bet value can be divided by two, three, four or five even increments no smaller than $0.50. You cannot split any Bonus Bet that is less than $2.

Suppose $2 Bonus Bet can be split into 2 x $1 Bonus Bets (but not 4 x $0.50) and $100 Bonus Bet can be split into 4 x $25. Each of the four $25 bets can then be further split into 5 x $5 or 2 x $12.50.

Do TAB Australia Stream Live Races?

Yes TAB Australia does stream live races. The TABs have extensive radio networks in Australia, except in Victoria and Tasmania where other parties own equivalent networks. All these networks share the National Racing Service, a continuous broadcast of thoroughbred, harness and greyhound racing. This makes up the bulk of these networks’ content. Collectively, these networks own more radio licences than any other group in Australia – however, their terrestrial coverage is less than the ABC as they generally have tiny wattages. The heir of the NSW TAB also owns a national racing subscription TV service.

In New Zealand, the TAB owns TAB Trackside, a former near-national free-to-air and national subscription TV service. In the analogue era, most New Zealanders could sit at their TV with a standard aerial and watch racing. This channel is now only on Sky TV.

The New Zealand TAB was replaced by the New Zealand Racing Board in 2003, however the physical premises have retained the TAB branding.

Radio TAB is also used to live sports coverage (including horse racing) in parts of Australia.
