Updates & News

Luxbet Bookmaker – Backed By The Tab

Luxbet is the most recent arrival amongst the ranks of the online bookmakers. It is licensed by the Northern Territory, similar to many of the bookmaking operations.

So punters living in some of the eastern states, especially NSW and VIC might encounter some terms and conditions that seem a bit unfair, but then, life is not always fair, is it? These restrictions normally involve some of the promotions and free bets offers Luxbet and others use to encourage new users to sign up for the service. Beyond those, Luxbet is favourably comparable and competitive in all aspects of online wagering, so let us take a closer look at them.

Luxbet offers racing, sports, so-called novelty wagering. It is backed by Tabcorp, so there is that assurance of transparency and square dealing, but from an objective perspective, there is little risk of any sort of disreputable tactics, as is the case for all the major online bookmakers who have both government regulators with which to deal and customers who would quickly abandon them for unsavoury practices.

Entering the URL into a browser brings up a landing page that is pleasantly sparse when seen on a computer monitor. We are using a typical 20” high-definition LCD for purposes of this review, somewhat smallish by today’s standards, but still adequate. We could envision hooking up a computer to a large screen TV, in which Luxbet would really look good, especially for live streaming of games and races, a Luxbet feature.

A gray bar at the top of the screen features a yellow tab that links to the sign-up page for new clients. Just to the right of that is a place for existing clients to log in, and the last tab opens Luxbet’s Help resources that includes three methods for contacting customer service, along with many other worthwhile resources.

Beneath than is the company logo that divides the top bar from two green bars that feature tabs for getting to the most popular wagering markets, which concludes with a yellow tab that opens a customisable menu of all Luxbet’s other offerings.

You can see all this for yourself of course, but we mention it only as commentary on how well designed is the Luxbet site.

According to the Luxbet website, deposit options include Maestro, Visa and MasterCard, POLi, BPAY and direct bank transfers. Withdrawals can be made to an Australian bank account free of charge by filling out a form on the website. Unlike Sportsbet, they do not support PayPal. It is one area where we find Luxbet slightly lacking, but as with all things related to the Internet, by the time you read this, things will likely have changed. On the plus side, if you absolutely have to use the telephone to place a wager, which according to the letter of the law, you will if you want to wager in-play, Luxbet will do so for $20, compared to $50 for Sportsbet.

Luxbet does have a $1 minimum for online wagering. They accept Aussie and U.S. dollars, euros and British pounds and there is no minimum deposit requirement, save for bank transfers, in which case the minimum is $300. There are no dormant account fees; deposit turnover is only 1x. Their margin is 4.9 percent, decimals lower than the average for online bookmakers.

A recent check regarding odds for an upcoming footy match featuring the Crows against the Tigers found Luxbet offering 2.20 on Adelaide to win, which was higher than any other, with the exception of bet matching service Betfair.

Luxbet Racing

Clicking on the Horse Racing icon opens up a page showing Next To Jump, with options to filter by code. One click on the thoroughbred icon at the top dropped down a menu showing Australian and International races for Today. One click on the word Saturday opened a menu showing tracks where meetings were being held Saturday. Clicking on Randwick brought up the card for the meeting, and clicking on the Missile Stakes showed the field in a tabular format, along with the current odds and the available bet types.

Clicking on the Fixed Win odds for the favourite added the wager and opened the bet slip. We were mildly chagrinned to see that the bet slip does not supply a dividend calculation function, but we managed to put that behind us without excessive angst.

The point we are heading towards is that we were able to get this punt on in less time than it took you to read the last paragraph. Besides the Win/Place chart, tabs alongside enable you to switch to five other bets, such as quinella, exacta, and so forth.

The site functions the same for trotters and dogs.

Luxbet Sports

No quibbles from us regarding the sports offerings of Luxbet. Every match of the upcoming round of the AFL offered 153 different bets, so if you cannot find a punt with 1377 markets, you need to relax a bit and consider different hobbies beyond punting.

No quibbles from us regarding the sports offerings of Luxbet. Every match of the upcoming round of the AFL offered 153 different bets, so if you cannot find a punt with 1377 markets, you need to relax a bit and consider different hobbies beyond punting.

Clicking on the yellow More icon on the right side of the landing page displays 49 sports in addition to the 13 major markets at the top of the landing page. The slick feature here is that you can remove sports from the main page and substitute with your preferences.

You can have a punt on the 13 September matchup betwixt the Denver Broncos and the Baltimore Ravens if you enjoy NFL football. At the moment, Luxbet has the Ravens as four point favourites, which is mildly inexplicable, because the Broncos will win every game in 2015, even if they had to play Fremantle at the MCG in the Grand Final, provided that they permit Peyton Manning to adjust the air pressure in the ball prior to the game.

Our point here is that there are thousands of markets on a regular basis on Luxbet.com, so finding a decent value is really the only consideration.

There are also mobile platforms that seem to be every bit as functional as the primary website. We are beginning to truly appreciate mobile wagering, and Luxbet has put a fair amount of effort into making the transition from computer to smartphone entirely painless.

In conclusion, we find little to list ion the negative side of the ledger with regard to Luxbet. We like the generous odds and the low minimums. It took us only minutes to get familiar with the website, even if Luxbet did make some changes since we last looked at them the year previous. They would be suitable for the newcomer and the occasional punter and would also serve nicely for the more ardent. We would not go so far as to say that if you intend to do some online punting, Luxbet is the only bookmaker you will need, because each of the many fine others offer enough variety that part of the fun is the shopping for the best offers.

Remember to read all of the Luxbet terms and conditions carefully. These are best managed in small doses and if you encounter things that you do not understand, the Luxbet agency has people available to handle your inquiries. Most importantly, gamble responsibly.
