Founded in 2013, TopBetta is an Australian bookmaker that offers a different betting experience through Tournaments. Which basically means that users are betting against themselves rather than the traditional bookmaker setup where you’re just betting on an outcome.

TopBetta Full Review
To start with, we’ll run through some of the key features this bookmaker is offering. This will include an overview of their best betting features, the markets they provide, reputation and more.
Since 2013, TopBetta has built a strong reputation around its Tournament style of betting and you’ll enjoy betting amongst your mates.
This bookmaker is fully licensed for betting in Australia and complies with Government regulation. For residents in NSW, VIC, SA and NSW, betting promotions or offers are currently not available. Also in SA, they comply with the Responsible Gambling Code of Conduct.
In terms of betting markets, the variety on offer is quite impressive. For racing in particular, they basically don’t miss a race so whether you’re looking to bet locally or Overseas, they have you covered with a market. Along with Tournaments (we’ll review this later on), there’s a number of ways to make money at this bookmaker. The sports betting markets are plentiful as well and in-conjunction with promotions, they’re also a good choice for betting on sports.
Looking at the bet types on offer, this bookmaker offers the basic options and a few advanced features for seasoned punters. They have the Mid-Tote available as well as the opportunity to bet on SuperTab or Top Tote. Best of 4 is another wager type, which offers the best price out of the 3 Totes or official starting price – whichever is higher. While for less experienced punters, the fixed price option is available for win and place bets. Furthermore, such exotic bets as Quinella, Exacta, Trifecta and First Four can be selected on Racing events.
A very unique betting feature at this bookmaker is Player Bets. This allows users to create a custom player prop bet. The sports on offer can range from NFL to EPL and the player bets on offer will depend on the sport. So using NFL as an example, you could possibly create a bet that will see a Quarterback battle where player A must beat Player B in a certain category. There are 3 available options for a player bet – Stat, H2H or Trios.
Stat – Bet on one or two players to either beat a number or go overs/unders on a certain stat.
H2H – Choose two players and bet on the first player to beat the other in a specific stats category.
Trios – This option allows you to pick 3 players and is kind of similar to a trifecta. For this bet to succeed, you must place each player in the correct order of the chosen stat.
Another unique part of this bookmaker is the Tournament style of betting on offer. The Tournaments provide an opportunity to bet against other people in a competition with a prize pool up for grabs. So rather than betting on an outcome with just the bookmaker, this offers a very unique betting experience. There will tournaments available for both Sports and Racing. The time of year will dictate which sports are available, such as during January/February you’ll mainly find EPL and BBL tournaments. Racing tournaments generally cover mid-week meets as well as weekend Racing. To enter a tournament, you must buy a ticket and the type of tournament will depend on the cost of this ticket.
While browsing the website, they provide the opportunity for live chatting with a support team member. They also provide a very useful help section with FAQs that will aim to help you find an answer before contacting the team.

As a whole, TopBetta has some unique features that set this bookmaker apart from the competition. This starts with the Tournament style of betting and the Player Bets feature. They’re arguably more focused on Racing with a huge range of markets and the app is heavily geared to Racing. But, they do offer Tournaments for popular sports and a decent range of betting markets. So we highly recommend them for betting on the races and dabbling into Sports betting as well.
