RealBookie Review June 2024

RealBookie is another on course bookmaker that has adapted to modern times and the need of an online service. Mark Sampieri and Chris Lester bring their 50+ years of experience in the industry and provide a bookmaking service that is purely for racing tragics that like to dabble into a bit of sport.

At you will find a racing book that is up there with the industry leaders providing 5000 markets weekly and an impressive live streaming service, which is easy to find with a large play icon in the bottom left of the screen.

The RealBookie website is similar to those that use the BetMakers technology, which translates to a clean three-column interface that is easy to use and navigate through.

The promo code BESTBETS is available to use when joining.

RealBookie Verdict

If you are looking for a bookmaker that provides a solid racing service with a complimentary sportsbook that offers the basics, then you will find it at RealBookie.

RealBookie stands out from the other middle-class bookies by providing a live streaming service which is a companion with Sky, but they also show certain international meets that Sky do not.

RealBookie Horse Racing Review

You know what you are going to get from on course bookies that turn their focus to online services. The odds are great and the expansion of racing markets match any other player in the industry. 

You will find all three Australian racing categories, thoroughbred, harness and greyhound, as well as plenty of international racing from all the major racing nations.

RealBookie offers Best of the Best and Top Fluc for most Australian races with a max payout of $5,000. Their form guide also provides you with all the pre-race info that you need with speedmaps, Flucs and a Race and Runner Overview and Tips on most Australian racing.

RealBookie Sports Betting Review

Unfortunately, RealBookie’s sportsbook has a long way to go before they can match it with the larger bookmakers in the country. They offer around 50 markets on the major sports including NRL, AFL, EPL, NFL and NHL. 

A positive is that they do offer same-game multis and have pretty good prices on the lines, landing between $1.92-$2.00

It is safe to say though, if you are a sports bettor, you should be laying your bets elsewhere.

RealBookie Odds

By and large, you will find Mid Tote and fixed odds on all Australian and New Zealand racing. 

RealBookie also offers five daily price bumps that will give you odds that no other bookie in the country can match.

RealBookie Mobile App

The usability of their app is consistent with their web version. It is clear and simple to use and you won't have any trouble finding what you are looking for.

RealBookie History

With a history in the bookmaking industry dating back to 1967, they have established themselves as seasoned players in the field. 

Mark Sampieri, a key figure at the helm, along with Chris Lester, the current joint Chairman of the Victorian Bookmakers Association, bring a wealth of experience to the table. 

Chris Lester has held a bookmaker's licence in the state since 2013, further solidifying his reputation. Both individuals are highly regarded within the industry, known for their expertise and integrity.

In a move to adapt to the changing landscape, they expanded their operations online in 2020. This transition has been met with considerable success, allowing them to reach a wider audience and provide their services in the digital space. Their online presence has garnered positive feedback and gained traction among punters.
