Optimised for smartphone and tablet devices? Yes
Palmerbet.com is the online betting branch of Andrew and Grant Palmer – two of Sydney’s most prominent racecourse bookmakers. Coupling a sleek, modern image and multi-platform accessibility with a family legacy that dates back more than 30 years, it promises to give punters “a more youthful, interactive and fairer” betting experience. Palmerbet is also one of a select few bookmaking sites which is 100 per cent Australian owned and operated.
Internet betting interface for desktop
For aesthetics alone, the Palmerbet website is hard to beat. The layout is light, colourful and easy to navigate, with clear menus and well-placed links to key features. Popular betting markets such as AFL futures, English Premier League matches and upcoming race meets are easy to find, while the right side of the home page is devoted to the multitude of betting specials on offer each week.
Perhaps the best feature of Palmerbet.com is the simplicity of the registration process. It only takes a minute or so to sign up, deposit some cash and start betting online with real money. Placing wagers is just as simple thanks to a virtual bet slip which is at once straightforward and sophisticated, with clearly defined sections for singles, multis and exotics.
Everything about this site is designed to make betting online as simple and enjoyable as possible, which should be (but isn’t always) the top priority for every online bookmaker.
Mobile betting on smartphone and tablet devices
Palmerbet’s mobile betting interfaces are cut from the same user-friendly cloth as the company’s desktop website. Whether you download the app or log in through your device’s Internet browser at www.Palmerbet.com, everything is laid out to be simple, logical and hassle-free.
Just like the Palmerbet website for PC and Mac, the apps are stylish and subtle without compromising on functionality. Touch-and-swipe menus make it easy to find what you’re looking for, even on smartphones with small screen displays. They come with the same quantity and quality of betting products as the desktop site, as well as easy access to banking, promotions and other essential features.
The Apple iOS betting app for iPhone and iPad is available to download now at the App Store. The Palmerbet.com mobile site is optimised for all types of smart devices, including iOS, Android, BlackBerry and Windows Phone.
Secure banking with higher deposit limits
There are several safe, convenient ways to get funds in and out of your Palmerbet account. You can make fast deposits with major credit and debit operators such as Visa and MasterCard, while POLi, BPay and Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) are also supported. The preferred withdrawal method is direct bank transfer, which can take up to three business days to process.
One of Palmerbet’s biggest drawcards is its liberal transaction limits. Some Internet bookmakers place tight caps on e-wallet and credit card deposits, but these guys allow customers to move many thousands of dollars at a time. Needless to say, this is ideal for serious punters who like to bet big and bet often.
100% Australian owned and operated
Unlike the vast majority of its rival betting sites, Palmerbet.com is an all-Australian enterprise with no overseas owners or operators. The company is fully licensed by Racing NSW and its sports betting practices are regulated by the NSW Office of Liquor, Gaming and Racing.
Racing and sports betting markets
The Palmer brothers rank among Sydney’s most successful on-course bookies, so it should come as no surprise that their online betting business is an industry leader in Australian horse racing. But Palmerbet is much more than a mere racebook, offering well-priced and wide-ranging markets on all manner of local and international sports.
