What is telephone betting and mobile phone betting?

Mobile Phone Betting

Mobile Phone Betting

Telephone betting is now available at most of the online bookies which is quite useful if you want to place quick bets on various horse races. Also if you are not able to attend any race track at the real venue you can easily set up a telephone betting account with a bookmaker who is licensed in Australia. If you go back to history of this type of betting then it were the South Australian bookmakers who the first in the country to be able to offer this service and on May 1993 the first legal phone bets were taken on a racecourse in Australia.

Initially quite draconian restrictions were placed on those bookmakers who took up the opportunity to offer this service with a $250 minimum bet restriction put in place following opposition to the phone bet introduction by the Tattsbet/Ubet. Lobbying over a period of years has seen all restrictions removed, which has seen the turnover created by phone betting being the reason for maintaining levels of turnover in this state.

Mobile phone betting – A bit different

Mobile Phone Betting

Mobile phone betting is where you download a certain app of an online bookie like sportsbetting app on your Android or iOS. You can download such apps straightaway from the app stores and simply register yourself by filling a short form and create your sports bookie account with your smartphone. Once done make a deposit with Australian friendly payment mode and place your bets on horse racing or any other sports.

Many a times if the online bookie offers instant play then you needn’t download any app but simply on your web or mobile browser enter the bookie url like http://m.sportsbetting.com.au and enter the bookmaker online with your mobile to do horse betting.
