How to place a bet (guide)

A good feature of the OKEBET online experience is that the site is simple to use. Setting up a new account is, too. Here’s how to get started with the operator and how to place a bet with them.

Register or Login

Registration can be done through the link on their main website or app. Ensure that all data entered matches any documentation you will use on the next step for verification.


With the account set up, you can deposit OKEBET via several methods. A minimum of $10 is required to get funds into the account – their banking FAQ page has all the necessary info.

Find Your Sport

Now, with a funded, verified account ready to go, you can explore the horse racing and sports betting that OKEBET have. Browse through the well-organised sections and use the filters and menus to streamline your search.

Make Your Selections

From your selected race or sports fixture, look for the selection that you want to make. Click on the odds for that pick, and it will immediately appear in the Bet Slip. Keep adding your selections, and multis can be created afterwards.

Checking the Bet Slip

With your selections in the Bet Slip, an excellent tool that can apply the same stake to all individual singles. Alternatively, you can set individual stakes per bet. Double-check the entire stake of a bet before confirming it.


The OKEBET app is available for both iOS and Android. There are direct links to the apps on the main menu when you land on the homepage. That’s a great touch, as you don’t have to dig around for them like you do with many bookie sites.

The app offers a smooth transition from the main website onto your mobile device. The operation and user-friendliness are just the same, so there is a good, quick mobile betting experience to be snapped up.

Browsing through the race markets, for example, is quick, and it is easy to keep on track with the app because of good navigation and few distractions. The full range of features, like streams and promotions, can also be enjoyed. The app is secure, and you can make fast deposits with it.



There is an impressive racing section at OKEBET. The latest racing action is on the home page, and you can filter the view between racing, greyhounds and harnesses.

The main horizontal navigation menu on the site lists big upcoming feature races for easy access. Click on the Racing link to get deeper into the main section, which includes results, a calendar to plan bets and a dedicated Futures section.

Domestic and International horse racing coverage is provided. Some markets are only Fixed odds, while Tote products are available across home-based gallops. There are great betting options around for racing, like Top Fluctuation, Best Tote, BOB, Multis and derivatives like Quinella, Exacta and Trifectas. The racing at OKEBET also includes Same Race Mulits, Tips, Form Guide and Speed Maps.


The sports section at OKEBET is extensive, with a surprising amount of in-depth market variety for many major sports. An example was a Premier League football match from England, with over 150 pre-match markets.

There is a bigger focus on football, the AFL, and NRL than some minor sports. But with more than a dozen major sports listed in the OKEBET sportsbook, there should be more than enough for the average punter to pick through.

The variety is a strong point, but that’s backed up by competitive sports odds with decent, if not specular, margins. The sports section does have the Same Game Multi feature on selected fixtures and markets.

Live Betting and Streaming

There is no live betting at OKEBET. The listing of upcoming matches helps punters to keep track of events that are on the way. Live-streaming at OKEBET is limited to primarily international horse racing, but you may see an odd obscure domestic meeting.

Using the platform

Importantly, the betting platform at OKEBET is very user-friendly. Navigation around the site is good, so whether you are digging through the latest racing or kicking off the weekend with some NRL options, the markets are straightforward to find.

Major events get a spot on the horizontal navigation bar to help further. Some sportsbook pages we noticed were a little laggy, like loading the latest Premier League listings.

But there is a lot on the site, including results and statistics. So, it’s a well-rounded, nicely balanced platform for beginners and experienced punters. The links to the Bet Slip, Sports and Racing sections stay at the bottom of the page for convenient access.

A chat button sits in the bottom right-hand corner to quickly get to the Help section. That can lead you to a live chat during hours or get you into their help section. Account management is laid out simply under My Account.


There is no welcome bonus offer for Australian punters at OKEBET. But existing customers can still get some reasonable offers.

OKEBET Promotions

There is a dedicated promotion section for existing customers who are logged in. This area is where they are strong, as you can find daily promotions for both sports and racing, mostly on Australian gallops like Best Tote and Protest Payouts.

OKEBET Features

There are good features throughout the OKEBET site. There is the big one of live-streaming of racing. But features like Same Game Multi and Same Race Multi shine through.
Their Best Tote product covers daily Australian meetings and is another huge positive for punters. Integrated racing features like Speed Maps and Form Guides are other good touches. The OKEBET mobile betting app is another positive feature that the bookie offers.
