Centrebet

One of the first sportsbooks from the southern hemisphere to go online, Centrebet has gone on to set world standards in many markets. Despite being in a market that is mostly controlled by Bwin, Ladbrokes and 888 Sport, Centrebet can proudly claim to have beaten them all to the Internet despite being relatively smaller in size.

Despite growing strongly in the Scandinavian region and even the rest of Europe, Centrebet focuses on its own region, Australia and towards south-east Asia. Today, Centrebet is known for its racing market as well as the option that customers get to place exceptionally large bets.

Basic Overview

Established in 1992, Centrebet began by taking bets over the phone. This arrangement took a massive upgrade in 1996 when it became the first sportsbook to establish a base online and take online bets. Since then, Centrebet has become one of the most popular bookmakers not just in Australia, but in parts of Europe even.

Despite a specialization in Australian sports, especially racing events, Centrebet has begun to make dents in the major European football market as well.

The Centrebet website is quite average when compared to the ones put up by the other big names in the sportsbooks industry. That said, it is quite convenient and easy to use even for newcomers to the website. All major sports are listed blatantly at the center of the home page while the more popular selections are listed on the left side.

The website also offers tips from experts in various sports and these form a major part of the learning section of Centrebet.

Registration

While the home page does not have any link to join the website, once the user goes into any section, s/he can easily find the “join” button on the header. Centrebet does not impose any minimum deposit limits unless there is something specified by the service provider as such. Bank Transfers may take upto 3 – 5 days to process however all other formats are free and do not incur any fee.

Bonuses

Centrebet offers all new members a GBP 20 free bet that is given to the customer once s/he places a GBP 20 bet. The free bet can be earned by entering a promotional code.

Betting

Betting is quite a simplified process on Centrebet. Once the customer selects the sport that s/he wishes to bet on, a list of all events under the selection shows up. The customer is free to place a bet on win/loss results from that page or go to “All Bets”, a section that displays all possible events under the main event, which can be wagered upon.

Customers can select as many options as they want and watch the betting slip fill up on the right side of the screen. Typing in the total instantly shows the total payout that can be received if things go the right way. To place Multiple bets, the customer simply needs to click on the large “Add to Multi” button that just can’t be missed. Once they confirm the wager, customers are on their way.

Market

Centrebet is renowned for its racing market and it is with this reputation that they go as far as to provide a completely separate section to racing of all kinds. The maximum stake size makes them standout against the competition, especially in the European football market where they are likely to go best price on an outsider rather than on the favourite.

They are extremely quick in putting up the odds for horse races and have a number of other options when it comes to racing in general, from across the world.

Odds

Excellent!!! When it comes to racing events, especially horse racing, there are few who can match the odds that Centrebet offers. However, they are still on their way up the learning curve when it comes to European football and other major sports around the world. The way things are, there isn’t much time before Centrebet becomes a major force in all sports.

Some of the odds entice customers to place huge bets, especially in European football and horse racing, on the outsider rather than on the winner. They keep tidy margins and ensure that there are enough odds to cover almost all ends.

Customer Attention

While English language support is available round the clock, there is just a 6-hour window for other languages. Despite being a multi-lingual company that deals in 14 languages (4 of them English of different regions), Centrebet does fall short in this category. Customers also need to scroll down a fair bit before they reach the contact segment of the website.

Conclusion

To be fair to Centrebet, there is still a way to go as far as their presence on the Internet is concerned. Despite being the first on it, they haven’t done much in terms of providing an eye-candy of a website to customers. That said, the odds provided are some of the best one can find on the Internet while the ease of placing a bet simply makes the experience unbeatable.

A separate section dedicated to racing as well as the ability to place huge bets sets Centrebet apart from the rest of the gang. Despite a poor in-play segment, Centrebet are quite popular and have an extremely strong base in Australia, one that is slowly moving to other parts of the world as well.
