Palmerbet Review March 2024

Palmerbet has been on the scene since 2013 and has made a great impression on Aussie punters, with many comparing their services to the standards of some of the bookmaking industry's leaders.

Spawning from one of NSW’s top racing bookies, Ted Palmer, Palmerbet carries a confidence that only 60+ years in the industry can give.

Palmerbet doesn’t muck around with flashy websites or over the top promotions (not to say they do not have fantastic offers for their members), but they keep things simple, user friendly and take care of the important things like providing a good range of markets and great odds. It is a service that their reputation stands by and is proud of.

Palmerbet Verdict

Palmerbet has a bit of a stripped down feel about it when you jump on their website, but the more you dive in and have a look around the more you understand that Palmerbet is kind of a hidden gem in the industry and is definitely on its way to being one of Australia’s best bookies, without all the fluff.

Palmerbet has catered its marketing and advertising to true-blue Aussies and it works. It isn’t over the top, it just creates a sense of belonging if you are a casual bettor or a more experienced savvy punter.

Although Palmer bet has a racing background, they have also hit the sportsbook on the head, offering a comfortable amount of markets and most importantly 1.95 lines on AFL, NRL and now NBA and NFL, which obviously lures in the value hunters.

Palmerbet’s blog and podcasts give some of the best advice around, (not as good as ours of course). They provide weekly previews and tips for Horse Racing, Greyhounds, NRL and AFL and also other major events. It is a proper insight written by experts… real ones.

Palmerbet keeps it as uncomplicated as possible and gives Aussie punters “Simple, Better Betting”, just as they say they will.

Palmerbet Horse Racing Review

Ted Palmer, grandfather to the brains of Palmerbet, Grant, Mathew and Adrian Palmer, has been in the NSW racing industry for over 60 years, so you just know that the racing product is going to be top-notch.

As you would expect, Palmerbet covers the thoroughbreds, trots and dogs in both Australia and New Zealand and also offers markets in all of the major international racing nations including Hong Kong, UK, USA and France. 

Palmerbet also passes on its years of knowledge providing race and runner comments, predictors, speedmaps and early speed indicators along with the standard form guide, for all of the important racing events.

Palmerbet Sports Betting Review

Palmerbet kills it as well in the sports game. Firstly offering 1.95 lines on NRL, AFL, NBA and NFL gives you confidence that they know how to run a sportsbook. 

Secondly, they offer 150 markets, give or take,  on all of the major Aussie and American sports, meaning you are always going to find a market that tickles your fancy.

What makes Palmerbet stand-out even more from the rest of their competitors is the blog and podcast for AFL and NRL. 

Matt Stewart hosts both pods and gets expert help from Newcastle Knights legend Matt Gidley and Sydney Swans legend Spida Everitt in their respective sports.
