We do get live betting you just have to call.I disagree. Last night when I made the call to Sportsbet, both times it took me around 6 minutes to get through to them (one at quarter time and one at half time). It isn't the first time it has taken this long- it has happened numerous times as well. I had a bet on live betting on the AFL points in yesterdays match, as a bit of insurance (which I posted on this thread), Roos 106-120 points which came in. We are living in 2020, and as a consumer we should have choice to bet and use our money however we want to. I totally understand the tax side of things as well, but I'd be quite happy for overseas bookies to pay the Australian government a tax of some sort for us to have better betting options. Sportsbet/Ladbrokes/TAB should not have a stranglehold of the Australian market.
The purpose of the live betting act- was to stop Australian punters from betting on casino games, in which money would flow overseas. That is has done but somewhere, it overlapped with sports betting as well.
The sooner live betting is allowed in Australia- the better it will be for the punter. Unfortunately, I don't think i will live until the day we get live betting here. Heck, even the New Zealanders are laughing at us, that we can't get live betting.
Do you ever call during a game or during a break in the game like QT etc, if the latter than yes betting live is not really too much of an issue, but if you try betting in a game on a regular basis it is tiresome the entire process.We do get live betting you just have to call.
Personally I have only used Lads and Bet365 and the whole process seemed to work pretty well. Obviously the longer it takes the bigger chance that you get a change in odds.
The process on 365 works pretty well with a code for the bet. Not sure of other books.Do you ever call during a game or during a break in the game like QT etc, if the latter than yes betting live is not really too much of an issue, but if you try betting in a game on a regular basis it is tiresome the entire process.
For every 5 times I call during a live game, I would say the odds change three out of every 5 calls, by the time I provide all my details, confirm identity, provide the bet, the stake amount and for the operator to then repeat my bet back to me and THEN place the bet.
Which bookie?Fancy the Giants to score a few goals this afternoon. Weather looks perfect for a game of footy.
