Tab Australia Review
Pros & Cons
|Tab Rewards||Blocked access to some countries|
|Local sports games||Limited deposit methods|
Tab.com.au is an online sports betting site that is licensed in both New South Wales and Victoria, but due to different gambling regulations, punters are required to state their location when registering for the site. We at BettingTop10 really enjoyed reviewing their clean website which doesn’t use the 3 section format that many bookmakers have been using. Tab.com.au is one of the only Australian online betting sites that does not have a bonus offer for new players. Instead, they offer “TAB Rewards” which rewards loyalty, and can be redeemed for free bets, tickets to local matches and other great prizes.

Tab is one of the most recognizable names in Australian sports betting, and has been serving punter before internet betting was even an option.

Bonuses and Promotions
Instead of giving punters a welcome bonus like most online sports betting sites, Tab has a rewards system that where punters can earn points based on their bets. The rewards can redeemed for free bets, event tickets and other great prizes. Where Tab Australia lacks in bonuses, they more than make up for it with their promos and contests. There some daily promotions that offers increased odds for the big game or race of the day. Other promos are geared toward offering punters an extra measure of security on race day
Mobile Device and App
Our opinion at BettingTop10 is that the Tab mobile app is in a league of its own when it comes to mobile betting. The app has several unique features including live streaming of thoroughbred, harness and greyhound racing from Sky Racing. Victorian and NSW thoroughbred racing can’t be live streamed, but punters can still listen to the race through the app. The design is pretty simplistic; the home page has two options: racing and sports. Just click on what you’d like to bet on, and you’ll be directed to all the available markets. You can download the free app on both Apple and Android devices.
Deposit and Withdrawal Options
When it comes to deposit methods, Tab.com.au does have less of a variety then some of their competitors. Several of the most popular Australian methods, such as PayPal, POLi and MoneyBookers are not accepted here. Credit cards, money orders and Bpay are accepted and will instantly deposit the money into your account. Another option is to go to the nearest TAB retail outlet to make your deposit. The withdrawal methods are also more limited than other bookmakers, you can request an E transfer, a cheque or money order, or head over to the TAB retail outlet and get your money there.
Tab.com.au has a variety of ways for punters to get in touch with them to help solve any issues that may come up. There is a Help Centre and FAQ section that has answers to over 250 questions. If you can’t find the answer to your question, you can live chat or call customer support and speak with a customer representative who should be able quickly find the answers you need. For complete rules on how to use your sign up bonus, potential geographic restrictions and information for all the available promotions, make sure to check out the terms and conditions on the official website – www.tab.com.au.
Despite not giving a bonus offer to new players, there is a lot to like about www.tab.com.au. They have a great variety of markets and are known for accepting larger wagers then most other Australian bookmakers, which can very appealing for professional punters. Tab Rewards is another great feature that will have punters, regardless of their experience, coming back for more.
