TopBetta is one of the latest betting companies in Australia. Founded in Newcastle in 2013, and has established a reputation as one of the most innovative companies in the industry, thanks to its variety of punter-friendly features. TopBetta describes itself as the world’s first social betting platform, and its popular betting tournaments offer punters the chance to compete against each another to land big prizes.

Key features at TopBetta:

TopBetta have a competitive bonus bets offer, giving new players a $200 bonus bet at the time they make their first deposit. The bonus bets have to be used in thirty days and any winnings earned with Bonus Bets must be turned over twice before withdrawal.

With its famous betting tournaments, TopBetta provides racing and sports punters with the opportunity to bet against each another instead of taking on the bookie. There are a range of different TopBetta Racing Tournaments and TopBetta Sports Tournaments so punters of every level will have the chance to win a share of the cash pools.

TopBetta provides the option of betting with their tote product, which offers odds bigger than any of the Australian Totes, giving better value to TopBetta punters.

The handy TopBetta app can be downloaded as soon as you set up your account. The TopBetta app gives punters all they need to make their bets and join in with the racing or sports tournaments. While the speed and functionality of the app are good, it doesn’t give access to the same depth of sports betting markets punters can enjoy with some leading bookmakers.

For punters who enjoy displaying their sports knowledge, TopBetta offer the TopTippa tipping competition. Players who take part can land weekly cash prizes by tipping in the AFL and NRL and they can also earn a major big prize if they end the season as TopBetta top tipster.

TopBetta Betting Products


GOAT Top provide a top deal to punters who regularly bet on Australian horse racing, and guarantees to pay out at the best dividend from the main Australian Totes. While the regular Tote betting markets take out between 17 and 25 percent from the betting pool before paying out winners, GOAT Top only deducts 12 percent, offering Tote winners a bigger share of the total betting pool. For greyhound racing punters, TopBetta offer GOAT Mid, which pays out at the middle dividend of the Australian totes as long as the GOAT Top does not go higher.

Bonus Bets

New TopBetta customers can enjoy $200 in bonus bets at the time of their initial deposit. Deposits from new customers are matched 100 percent by bonus bets, up to $200. So, for example, if you put $100 in your new TopBetta account, you will be credited $200 in bonus bets. The Top Betta bonus bets are valid for thirty days, after which time they become void. All winnings earned from bonus bet money have to be turned over at least twice before withdrawal, and this turnover must be completed within forty-five days.

Racing Tournaments

Among the most popular TopBetta features that have helped to establish the company in the Australian betting industry are the TopBetta Tournaments. The TopBetta Racing Tournaments provide racing punters with a range of competitions in which bet against their peers, with each tournament offering a prize pool. Whatever their level of betting experience, TopBetta punters will be able to find a tournament suited to them.

The TopBetta TopTippa product is a tipping competition based around the NRL and the AFL and is only available for customers of TopBetta. TopTippa has some competitive weekly cash prizes for the best tipsters, and each sport’s leading tipster at the end of the season can claim a major cash prize, as well as the title of the TopBetta leading tipster.

Australian Owned

Australian punters will appreciate the fact that TopBetta is owned and operated in Australia, and listed on the Australian Stock Exchange. That makes it possible for them to concentrate on the domestic betting market and to provide an Australia-specific service.

TopBetta Bonus Bets Offer

TopBetta customers can pick up $200 in bonus bets with the various TopBetta promotions and competitions, although each eligible punter can only claim one Bonus Bet per promotion, and there are terms and conditions attached.

When a TopBetta Bonus Bet credit has been credited to a customer, it remains valid for thirty days from the point at which it is claimed, unless otherwise stated. If the Bonus Bet remains unused after this point, it will become void.

The complete terms and conditions for all TopBetta bonus promotions are viewable on the Promotions section of the TopBetta site. Most promotions also involve a wagering requirement. This requires that all winnings must be turned over twice before withdrawal, and that wagering requirement must be fulfilled within forty-five days. These are fairly typical bonus conditions and overall, the TopBetta Bonus Bet promotion provides a good deal.

The ability to bet on the go is crucial for the modern Australian punter and the TopBetta App is among the better mobile betting apps in the industry. It provides a fast, clean betting experience, and is available for download on Android and iOS operating systems.

TopBetta give their customers access to GOAT Top which pays out at the top dividend of the three main Australian totes (NSW TAB, S-TAB and Tatts). Domestic Tote markets take out between 17 and 25 percent from the pool before paying out winnings, but the GOAT Top only takes up to 12 percent, offering a better deal for TopBetta punters. Greyhound punters can also benefit, with the GOAT Mid, which pays out at the mid dividend of the three totes, as long as the GOAT Top does not exceed this price.

With the Protest Guarantee, if a protest against the winning horse is upheld, TopBetta guarantee to pay out for both the original winner and the official winner after the protest is resolved.

TopBetta Sports Betting

TopBetta’s sports betting product doesn’t offer the range of markets you might find at some of the leading bookmakers. A recent investigation by us showed that TopBetta has an average of 21 markets for every fixture, which was short of the median figure of 61. But for most Australian sports punters, their depth of markets will probably be sufficient.

Although they don’t provide the full range of markets, TopBetta do have an innovative Sports Tournament product. Most of their sports tournaments are based on a single round of fixtures for a particular league. Players can wager BettaBucks in any of the markets associated with the fixtures to see who will be the top tipster, and there are also season-long tournaments. Tournament fees range from $2 to $110 and prize pools go up to $10,000.

With TopTippa, punters can also earn cash prizes if their NRL or AFL tips are successful. All you have to do to take part is choose your winners each week of the NRL and AFL seasons and you could land one of the weekly prizes or even the $1 million top tipster season prize.

When it comes to the odds offered on their sports markets, TopBetta performs on a par with other main bookmakers, with their standard line bets coming in around $1.91. It is fair to point out that they don’t carry some of the specialist markets you might find with many bookmakers, but they do cover all the main sports and the most popular leagues.
