TAB Review June 2024

TAB have been the leading bookmaker in sports and racing for over 60 years long before online gambling was a thing. TAB have a long and dominant history within the betting industry in Australia and are the original powerhouse. 

TAB is the face of the industry with over 4000 retail shops and countless locations in most pubs and clubs from one side of the country to the others. Punters trust the TAB, it is familiar and has delivered a quality product for what is the whole life of any betting Australian.

With there not being an Australian that doesn’t know or has never heard of the TAB they do not have the urgency or need to come out with flashy marketing schemes or promotions, which can be to their detriment.

The younger generation of bettors look out for pretty colours and flashy graphics, as well as the mountain of promotions that are on offer to registered members. 

TAB doesn't muck around with any of that stuff, just focusing on delivering a product that everyone trusts, although the features they do have no one can beat.

TAB Verdict

You know what you get with TAB and it's great, that is why they have been the leaders in the industry for so long. 

However, with anyone that is bothered to read these reviews and dig a little deeper into the massive market of online bookmakers, they will soon find that there is so much more than the stock standard, with a next generation of bookmaker supplying a product that suits the new needs of a new type of punter.

The TAB are making strides in modernising their product, which will appear to the younger generation, which means they will continue to be in the league as a top 3 bookmaker in Australia for many many years to come.

What’s not to like about TAB

  • Little not to like

TAB Horse Racing Review

TAB takes immense pride in its intricate coverage of horse racing. The website prominently showcases their dedication to delivering high-quality horse racing services. 

Due to its immersed image in the horse racing scene at the track, you are going to get an online service that duplicates the high quality that has made it the predominant figure in the industry.

Online you get something that TAB is not able to deliver at the track or in the thousands of venues where you can still place cash bets, you can take advantage of plenty of promotions that only registered members can view. 

Their live streaming is second to none in the industry at TAB, as you can stream all 3 Sky Racing channels, which means you will literally never miss a race. They even feature video previews of some races in Australia, giving punters that little extra.

TAB Sports Betting Review

TAB offers a sportsbook that covers it all, with their focus on what Aussie punters love to splash their cash at. 

TAB features extensive markets on NRL, AFL, EPL and of course American sports including NFL, NHL and NBA. 

Here you will find between 150-200+ markets to choose from, while offering $1.90 lines and great odds on player props.

If you are an AFL fanatic you will never have to worry about missing a game again if you are a member of the TAB, as they provide live streaming on all matches.

TAB Odds

When it comes to odds in racing and sports it is always going to be hard for the TAB to be the top of the market, as all the other betting websites use them as a marker to gauge their “better” odds from. That being said, thier odds are competitive but not often are they way juicier than their competitors.

If you dare to dabble in future markets then you will almost always get extremely early odds for major events at the TAB, sometimes even up to 12 months in advance.

TAB Mobile App

In 2022, TAB did an overhaul of its app, which was developed by Google’s Flutter open source software, which really changed the game for them as they were beginning to fall behind just a little, not connecting with the younger generation.

Now they have developed an app that you could say leads the industry, offering great in app features while supplying exactly the same service that their web page does.

What makes it even better is you can follow all your racing and sports bets on the go using their live stream channel.

TAB History

Tabcorp Holdings, the parent company of TAB, holds a prominent position in the Australian gambling industry. This conglomerate oversees various entities, including TAB retail outlets, Sky Racing, Sky Sports Radio, UBET, and Keno. Their extensive reach encompasses both online and offline gambling channels.

With over 300,000 active customers betting through internet and phone platforms as of 2018, TAB has established a substantial presence in the digital realm. Additionally, a significant number of punters engage in cash wagers at TAB live venues across the country, further solidifying their position in the market.

TAB's roots trace back to its establishment in Victoria in 1964. After three decades of operation, the company marked a major milestone in 1994 by announcing its first significant public offering and subsequently listing on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX). 

Since then, Tabcorp has made strategic acquisitions of various gambling companies and licences, including Star City Holdings, Jupiters Limited, Tab Limited, and Keno. These expansions have propelled Tabcorp to become the largest gaming company in Australia.

The latest feature that can not be matched by any other bookmaker in Australia is Venue Mode. TAB members can go into a TAB venue/ pub/ club/ racecourse and check their app for the flashing green icon.
