Independent review of Centrebet. Fully licenced for safe, quality online sports betting for casual and professional punters..
CENTREBET - SECURITY & REPUTATION
Sportingbet - trading as Centrebet Pty Ltd in Australia and Centrebet UK Limited elsewhere.
Before the Sportingbet takeover, Centrebet was a savvy Aussie bookie with great reputation for high limit flexible betting offers and a claim to being the first sportsbook in the Southern Hemisphere to accept bets over the Internet.
Centrebet is popular with customers in Australia. It used to take punters from around the globe, but due to Sportingbet's licencing and marketing strategies, membership is now focussed on Aussie bettors only.

OTHER BETS AT CENTREBET
If the BookieLabRat team had to pick a single outstanding feature of Centrebet, it would be the level and extent of football coverage - they are especially good for odds on Scandinavian 'summer leagues'. A good range of ever changing betting opportunities are onsite including extensive football coverage, tennis, ice hockey, golf, cricket, Formula 1, Rugby Union, surfing, water sports, volleyball, table tennis, major international horse racing events, harness racing and greyhounds. All of the major American sports (NFL, NBA, etc). Limited coverage of business, politics & entertainment markets.
Australians: If your first single bet doesn't win you'll automatically receive a bonus bet token to the same value as your bet, up to $200. The welcome bonus isl relatively easy to obtain and fairly administered. (ie hassle-free).
Centrebet accepts bets in Australian dollars. Deposits and withdrawals are free and encypted for security.
DEPOSITS - A minimum deposit of $30AUD applies for credit card deposits.
Payment methods available include: Visa & Mastercard Credit & Debit Cards (Centrebet is Verified by VISA and is a Mastercard SecureCode site for transaction security), Bank Transfers, BPay, Poli, Neteller, PayPal, Moneybookers/Skril.
WITHDRAWALS - You can withdraw all or some of your account balance at any time, there are a few rules, nothing unusual, and payments usually take between 1 and 5 days depending on the method. Bank transfers, Neteller and Moneybookers/Skrill all work really well. No betting tax is deducted and the only fees that you may incur are your own bank's, not Centrebet's.
Last Page Update: 4 October 2014
Centrebet tends to offer main stream betting markets only including all the usual first/last scorer, scorecast type bets. They are not renowned for innovative special or novelty bets (unlike Paddy Power or BetFred).
Compared to most online bookies however the coverage you'll get from Centrebet on Scandinavian fooball and other 'off season' events is great and with top prices. Centrebet should also be a "must have" bookie for those who bet on the horses online.

CENTREBET - Overall Rating
Centrebet is popular with customers in Australia. It used to take punters from around the globe, but due to Sportingbet's licencing and marketing strategies, membership is now really focussed on Aussie bettors only.
The 'stand out' feature for Centrebet is their frequent and very popular punter promotions. Next one due soon...
