Bet66 Review

Bet66 is one of the slew of bookmakers to have joined the market in response to the everincreasing popularity of online sports betting. However, although Bet66 might be one of the new kids on the block, there’s plenty of experience behind the name, which is evident from the smart design and easy-to-use platform.

But it’s not just the simple navigation that makes this notable; there’s plenty more to recommend this site. Bet66 doesn’t spread itself too thinly, so you won’t find lots of niche bets, but there is excellent coverage of what you’d expect in both Australian and international sports.

Racing is clearly one of the passions of Bet66, and it’s got an exceptional offering in this area. Market-leading odds, live streaming of races, plus full coverage of gallops, harness and greyhound racing.

There’s nothing extra yet at Bet66, such as a blog or form guide, but that’s perhaps not a surprise given its relative newness. Not having any fancy gimmicks doesn’t detract from its appeal, as all the essentials are presented in a very accessible and convenient form. When you consider all of this, plus its licensed and legal status, there are plenty of reasons to give Bet66 a try.

How to place a bet (guide)

As a licensed bookmaker, Bet66 has to follow the laws very strictly, which means it can’t accept bets from unidentified players. To place a bet on any market, you’ll first need to register with Bet66 and pass its identity checks.

Bet66 tries to make these checks as unobtrusive as possible, using electronic and digital databases to verify identity wherever it can. If your identity can’t be verified in this way, you may be asked to contact customer service to provide further ID.

Once your identity has been verified, you’ll be free to place your bet online. Before you dive in, make sure you have credited sufficient funds to your account. The account balance is available at the top of the main page at all times, making it easy to keep track of what’s needed.

The menu provides players with the option to select the sport they want to bet on; switching sports is simply a case of a single click on an alternative option. This will open up the available fixtures, and the bets that are available. Clicking on the plus button will add the bet to your betting slip, where you can add the sum that you want to bet. The betting slip will automatically
calculate your potential payout, so there’s no need to do any tricky sums in your head!

Bet66 App

Many players prefer to use mobile devices, and as a new arrival, Bet66 has an advantage over some of the older sites. It has deliberately set itself up as a bookmaker that can facilitate mobile betting – including both iOS and Android apps.

This means that you can either use the mobile site, which has been fully optimised for play, or you can use a compatible app. Maximum choice and minimal hassle – it’s how we like to bet!


Bet66 Racing

Aussies love racing – and that’s very clear from the Bet66 selection. From gallops to harness racing and greyhounds, there’s a comprehensive range of bets to choose from.

A ticker at the top of the screen means you can always see what race is next, making it convenient to keep track of upcoming events. If you prefer, you can use the menu to navigate through the races in the calendar, allowing you to plan your bets further ahead.

Opening the card for the race will provide a range of betting options to add to your slip. In addition to the standard win/place bets, there are also same-race multis and exotics such as trifecta, quinella, and exacta.

Bet66 Sports

Racing is undoubtedly one of the main passions at Bet66, but there’s a lot of good coverage of many popular sports, too. Players can bet on any of the following:

  • Aussie Rules
  • Baseball
  • Basketball
  • Cricket
  • Darts
  • Football
  • Golf
  • Handball
  • Ice Hockey
  • Rugby League
  • Rugby Union
  • Tennis
  • Volleyball

Across all of these sports, there are multiple choices to bet on in both domestic and international leagues, bringing the very best of the action from around the world.

Bet66 Betting

To access the available bets, players only need to click on their preferred sport from the menu. This will open up a whole host of further options to choose from before listing the available fixtures. For example, football fans can pick the league before being presented with the available games. From here, it’s simple to add bets to your betting slip, which is always visible on the top right of the screen.

Bet66 Live Betting and Streaming

With Bet66, you’ll never miss any of the racing action, thanks to the live streaming available 24/7. You can watch every race on Bet66, so you’ll always be up to date with the latest results. Gallops, harness, and greyhound racing are all available with live streaming at Bet66 around the clock.

The Australian Media and Communications Agency (AMCA) keeps a tight rein on live, online betting, also known as in-play betting, as this isn’t legal in Australia. Outlawed by the Interactive Gambling Act 2001, players are not permitted to place live bets online, even partially. However, it is legal for bookmakers to accept phone bets for live betting, provided the bet hasn’t been partially made online. Bet66 doesn’t have a tab for live betting on the website, but the terms and conditions make it clear that it is available by phone.

Using the platform

Although being a new arrival on the scene is often viewed as a disadvantage, there are some benefits, too. Bet66 has a fresh and contemporary interface, which makes it easy to use the platform, even for complete beginners.

It’s simple to jump between different sports, using the menu on the left hand side. Navigation is easy, with all the essentials on the main page. Basic account information is available at the top of the screen with clear menus that open with a single click.

The betting slip is also kept readily on hand, making it easy to add or remove bets without having to move through multiple pages.

The whole platform feels as if it’s been designed with punters in mind, and there’s clearly a whole lot of experience behind this intuitive layout.

Bet66 Fantasy

At present, there are no fantasy sports available at Bet66. As Bet66 is such a new online bookmaker this may change in the future, but at the moment there are no active plans to introduce fantasy sports.

Bet66 Promotions

Although the law bans any adverts for a welcome bonus, thankfully there’s not a total blackout for all types of promotions. Once you’ve signed up you’ll be able to access the full range of special offers and promos that Bet66 has to offer, via the tab on the left hand screen menu.

When we viewed the available promotions at Bet66, we saw two bonus bet special offers (one for racing, one for football). In addition, a protest payout could be claimed for any race where a winner is relegated due to an upheld protest.

These promos will change frequently, so it’s always worth logging in to see the latest deals. It would be fair to say that there are more promos available at some other bookmakers, but quantity isn’t everything. The quality of the promotions at Bet66 is solid, and there’s plenty of potential to claim.

Bet66 Esports

Bet66 does not currently offer any betting on esports and hasn’t advertised any plans to change this in the near future.Bet66 does not currently offer any betting on esports and hasn’t advertised any plans to change this in the near future.

Bet66 Casino

The Interactive Gambling Act 2001 explicitly bans sportsbooks from offering casino games, such as slots. This means that you won’t be able to find an online casino at Bet66 or any other licensed, legal online sportsbook.

Bet66 Features

Bet66 has a comprehensive range of betting markets with competitive odds and live streaming. But there are a few little extra features that make this bookmaker a real hidden gem:

Live streaming via Bet66 TV – available to view directly from the menu

Commitment to responsible gambling – a dedicated tab to the Bet66 policy with links to a variety of support groups and organisations Onscreen timer – this is invaluable in helping you keep track of how long you’ve been betting Balance information always onscreen – your account isn’t hidden away in a separate tab, so you can always see exactly how much you have to bet

Domestic and international sports – wide coverage of sports both at home and from around the world

Bet66 only has a short history, registering for the first time in July 2023 but it's not lacking in betting pedigree. Bet66 is operated by the experienced Anthony Dow, a registered on-course bookmaker. It's also the sibling company to DowBet, another trading name for Anthony Dow's bookmaking services. Both Anthony Dow and Bet66 are backed by all the usual regulatory licences you'd expect to see in place, providing assurances that this is a legit operation.

Payment Methods

Deposit Methods

  • Visa CardInstant
  • Master CardInstant
  • Credit / Debit cardInstant
  • POLIInstant
  • Direct DepositInstant

Generally, the operation of Bet66 is pretty slick, but there's still some work to do on payment options. At the time of writing, Bet66 only offers card payments, POLi, and direct deposits, which compares poorly to more established Aussie bookies. Most players will expect to have options that include e-wallets such as Skrill or PayPal, and maybe even crypto, so we felt this was a real
area of weakness. The minimum deposit is set at $10 regardless of which method you use, a fairly standard limit that is found at many online Australian sportsbooks.

Withdrawal Methods

  • EFT / Bank Transfer48-72 hours

It's not uncommon for bookmakers to offer fewer payment options for withdrawals, but at Bet66, there's just one. Just like deposits, this isn't very competitive and compares poorly to other bookmakers who will typically offer a greater choice. Bank transfers can also take longer to process as they're affected by the processing time of each individual bank, so this is an area
that, hopefully, Bet66 will consider improving soon. The minimum sum for a withdrawal is $20, slightly higher than the average. Some bookmakers allow withdrawals from just $10, so this higher minimum limit may be a deterrent for those playing with a smaller budget.
