How can you do horse betting without a credit or debit card?

Yes, you can do horse betting without credit or debit cards in Australia. Most of the online bookies who offer horse races and betting though allow the use of credit or debit cards in Australia to make a deposit, but unfortunately not all online bookies allow you to make a withdraw of your winnings with credit or debit cards. Thus Aussie punters are on the lookout for other payment and withdrawal options to do horse betting without credit or debit cards.

The best thing about not using a credit card to bet on Australian racing is that there are no credit card fees and no interest to pay with your credit card provider. The downside is that many other depositing options aren’t as instantaneous as using a credit card, but these options are saving you money which is vital in the betting game and also as said above you cannot make a withdrawal.

Deposit options to use for horse racing other than credit cards

Here are few of the Deposit options to use for horse racing other than credit cards:


BPay Australia Sports

BPay is one of the most popular ways to deposit for non-credit card users. Australian members can use BPay to deposit funds from their bank account via the internet or telephone banking.

All punters need to do is log-in to their respective banking system and follow the prompts which will ask to enter a biller code and a Bpay reference number. Each bookmaker will provide two different codes that can be found on its website. Any transaction made via Bpay incurs no fees and large deposits are available.

Bank transfer

Bank Transfer payment method at online bookies

The concern with bank transfers is how long the money takes to reach your account, but bookmakers have sped up the process for Australian punters. Ladbrokes.com.au is one of the quickest bookmakers regarding bank transfers. Your first deposit could take up to 48 hours to process, but every subsequent deposit should be in your account within two hours if you’re transferring from the same provider.

Bookmakers will list the details needed to make a deposit via bank transfer and much like using Bpay, there are no fees when you make a deposit.


POLi as deposit option

POLi is an instant online payment option that makes a direct payment from your bank account to the bookmaker. It’s the fastest way to deposit money into your betting account and there are no fees when using this service.

Australian racing punters love using POLi as it means you can get betting straight away, but there is a maximum transfer amount so this option might not apply to all punting levels. There is a limit of $10,000 per transaction with most bookmakers, but you can make multiple transactions if you’re wishing to deposit a larger sum. POLi is also available to New Zealand customers with the likes of Bet365.com.


Skrill deposits

Skrill is an e-wallet that can be funded with online banking or bank transfer. It acts as an online wallet and funds are processed into your betting account instantly.

To transfer funds, click on Deposit and select Skrill from the list of available payment methods. Enter your deposit amount and click the deposit. Making a Skrill account is easy and some bookmakers also have a Skrill 1-Tap option which means punters don’t have to put in their account details every time they want to make a deposit.

All of the above deposit methods are quick and easy ways to make a deposit with Australian bookmakers if you don’t have or want to use your credit card.


Neteller deposits for bookies

To open a Neteller account, please go to www.neteller.com. Registration is free and only takes a few minutes. Moreover, you can use Neteller with any currency although Neteller accounts are available in US Dollars, Canadian Dollars, UK Sterlings, Euro, Norway Kroner, Swedish Kroner, Danish Kroner and AU Dollars only. Should your Neteller and online bookie currency differ, your deposit amount will be converted at the standard exchange rate.

Also, you are only permitted to register one Neteller account against one online bookie account.
