Dabble Overview

Dabble launched in 2020 as a bookmaking app with a difference. In addition to offering a full bookmaking service, Dabble operates as a social networking site, enabling punters to chat and offer advice to each other. There is no desktop site for Dabble; all of the bets must be placed via the mobile app.

It’s possible to bet on racing, sports, and esports via the Dabble app, although there aren’t as many sports as you’ll find elsewhere. The reason for Dabble’s popularity is the range of innovative features it offers. This includes being able to copy the bets of other users, as well as being able to add explanatory notes and tips to your own bets for others to see.

A messaging facility is included in the Dabble app, connecting users and promoting “banter”. Sky Racing has also partnered with Dabble, so live streaming is possible 24/7 via the mobile app.

How to place a bet (guide)

To place a bet at Dabble you’ll need to download one of the mobile apps, as they don’t have a desktop site available. Its apps have all of the functionality you would normally associate with a traditional betting site, plus some extra add-ons.

If you know what bet you want to place, then open up the app, select the market, and you’ll be able to view the available bets. Touch the bet you want and add the stake to your betting slip. Once you confirm the selection, your bet will be placed.

On Dabble, your bets will be shared with other users unless you indicate otherwise. This is part of its community betting vision. When you place a bet, you can also opt to add notes to explain why you’ve chosen your selection. This could help other punters when they’re trying to decide what bet to take.

However, there is the option to keep your bets private if you would prefer not to share your selection – or thoughts! – with others.

In addition to sharing your bet, you also have the option to see how others have been betting. Copy bets from the Dabble team of tipsters or from other punters, or just take a look at the general sentiment.

All of these features are built into the app so you can maximise your betting potential.

Dabble App

Mobile devices are the only way to access Dabble, as there’s no website that allows users to place a bet. A website does exist for Dabble, but only for the purposes of providing additional content and signposting users to the app.

The good news is that whether you’re an Android or iOS user, you’ll find the app easy to download and open. No need to hunt around to find the download link as the apps are available on the Play Store and the App Store, respectively.

It can take a little while to get used to navigating around the app, especially as there are so many functions. But everything you need is included, and once you’ve familiarised yourself with the interface, the apps are easy to use.

The only thing to be mindful of is the apps lagging during peak periods. If you’re betting on a big event, give yourself a little extra time to place the bet and don’t leave it to the very last minute. This is because sometimes the app can lag slightly when it’s overloaded, although there doesn’t seem to be any incidences of it crashing completely.

It’s a minor grumble in what is otherwise an excellent bookmaking app that puts betting at your fingertips.

Dabble Sports

Yes, there is sports betting available, but you won’t find as many markets as there are at other bookmakers. Some of the most popular sports available to bet on at Dabble include Aussie Rules, soccer, gridiron, Rugby League, Rugby Union, motorsports, tennis and basketball.

Dabble Bettting

What is the minimum bet at Dabble?

If you’re using the Dabble app, the minimum bet is $0.05, but if you’re telephone betting, the minimum is $20.00.

Live Betting and Streaming

Does the Dabble app offer live streaming?

Yes. It’s possible to follow live greyhound and horse racing 24/7 as Sky Racing 1 and Sky Racing 2 are built into the Dabble app. Touch the Sky logo towards the top of the screen, and it will launch the live stream where you can watch the racing as it happens.

Using the platform

How do I get onto the desktop site for Dabble?

Dabble has been designed as a bookmaking site that’s exclusively for mobile devices, and you can only place bets through its app.

Dabble Fantasy

Where can I find the fantasy section on the Dabble app?

At present, Dabble only offers betting on sports and racing; there are no fantasy leagues available.

Dabble Promotions

Does Dabble offer promotions to its registered players?

Yes, there are regular promotions available at Dabble. However, to comply with Australian state and territory laws, Dabble is unable to advertise incentives or welcome bonuses to unregistered players. Once you register and sign into the app, you’ll be able to see any available bonuses.

Dabble Esports

Are esports available at Dabble?

Yes! Esports weren’t initially included in Dabble but have now been added to the available betting on the app.

Dabble Casino

Does Dabble offer casino games on the apps?

Licensed bookmakers in Australia are prohibited by Federal laws from offering any kind of online casino games. Therefore, Dabble is unable to offer any kind of online casino games on its app.

Dabble Features

Is Dabble a bookmaker or a social networking site?

Dabble is a bit of both! Dabble is, first and foremost, a licensed bookmaker that is regulated in the same way as all other Australian bookmakers. However, its vision was to create a community where punters could chat and share information. That’s why Dabble is full of extra features, such as messaging and the ability to copy top bets.

Credibility

Dabble may outwardly look like a social networking site, but it’s got all the credentials of a heavyweight bookmaker. Licensed by the Northern Territory Racing Commission, you’ll find all the proper procedures in place, including identity verification and responsible betting measures.

Since its launch, Tabcorp has purchased a 20% equity share in Dabble, proving that it’s a legitimate betting company and not likely to fade into obscurity any time soon.

Payment Methods

Deposit Methods

  • VISA cardInstant
  • Master CardInstant
  • Credit / Debit CardInstant
  • Bank Transfer / EFT48-72 hours

The lack of options for depositing funds is one of the drawbacks of using Dabble. As a bookmaker exclusively using mobile technology, the use of more modern and convenient payment methods might have been a good idea, but that’s not the case.

The use of credit cards to fund betting is likely to become illegal in the near future, so we may see Dabble expanding its range of deposit options at that time. $5 is the minimum amount for depositing funds via any of the methods, with no maximum specified.

You can expect your funds to be available instantly in your Dabble account.

Withdrawal Methods

  • EFT / Bank Transfer2-5 days

The options for withdrawing funds from your account are poor, but to be fair to Dabble, there are numerous Australian bookmakers that only offer limited options. The minimum value for withdrawals is set relatively low at just $5, which is helpful.

Dabble doesn’t charge any fees for processing the withdrawal, although your bank may levy its own charges. Any withdrawal request will be actioned within 2-5 days, a relatively slow turnaround compared to some of its competitors.
