ClassicBet is unique in the Australian sports and horse racing betting scene. What sets it apart (without skipping all the great ClassicBet features and products), is ClassicBet offering all their clients a dedicated account manager. It’s a great personal touch that you won’t find elsewhere: it’s a feature ClassicBet’s fans love and something the bigger online betting sites can’t match, which we’ll analyse closer in our BettingTop10 ClassicBet review.

  • Best odds service
  • Quick 30 second sign up

What is ClassicBet’s Dedicated Personal Account Manager?

As we mentioned previously, ClassicBet sells itself as Australia’s first and only premium betting agency, and we have to say that in our independent testing for this review we discovered that the claims are 100% accurate.

All new customers of ClassicBet can expect to be called within 24 hours by an account manager who will introduce themselves to you and run through all the services you can receive with ClassicBet on topics as diverse as your ClassicBet login through to getting the best sports markets. Nothing is too much trouble. You’ll be asked about your own personal betting interests and habits to help develop a personalised and individual betting strategy and plan designed especially for you and who you want to spend your time and money.
As another special service in ClassicBet setting its odds independently from other bookmakers, it really sets the site apart from its competitors with an extremely convenient time saving tool for those punters who like to shop around for their odds.

ClassicBet odds and markets

The ClassicBet sports betting and horse racing betting selection is well suited to those who bet on all major Australian leagues, top level international codes and special events in addition to a superb range of odds on Australian thoroughbred, harness and greyhound racing markets:

  • All local and global horse and greyhound racing.
  • AFL
  • NRL
  • Cricket
  • Tennis
  • A-League
  • NBA
  • Super Rugby
  • Rugby Internationals
  • EPL and other European soccer
  • Golf
  • Motor racing
  • Ice Hockey
  • NFL
  • MLB
  • American College Football/Basketball

While an excellent range of sports and international leagues are covered, the depth of markets is better for Australian leagues and top tier international tournaments rather than the lower or less well-known leagues.

Aussie leagues have massive betting odds options. As with most online betting sites, the number of markets for a match increase closer to kick-off.
For horse racing, the ClassicBet, ‘Best of the Best’ promise offers punters the best of a basket of 3 totes and the bookmakers fluctuation.

Bottom Line

Overall, ClassicBet’s personal touch is nice, however, it’s the actual betting service and platform that we were most impressed with. offer a well-rounded service across the board.

Whether you’re betting on racing or sports, you’re always certain to find a market that suits without too much needless navigation. While ClassicBet don’t always offer the best Fixed Odds, they do offer the Best of 3 Totes on all Australian thoroughbred racing ensuring punters get the best bang for their buck particularly during the big Melbourne Spring, or Sydney autumn racing carnivals. We’re intending to place all our Melbourne Cup bets with ClassicBet.
It’s a great package overall, and its excellent to know that our own Personal Account Manager is just a call away – happy punting!
