Playup Bookmaker Review
Australia’s newest and most unique bookmaker, Playup is making waves in the online market.
Owned and operated out of their Sydney offices, the team at Playup has one goal in mind, and that’s to offer Australian’s with the best odds and betting products. They also want to provide a personalised experience for every punter, and it’s an impressive start.
Not only do they offer sports and racing betting, but fantasy betting is also available.
Playup is very much an Australian-based bookmaker, so expect to see plenty of promotions around AFL and NRL. It’s an official partner of the South Sydney Rabbitohs and an approved betting operator of the AFL, NRL, Australian Rugby, Cricket Australia, and many more.
What does that mean for you? It means punters will get the best quality product available, and it also adds to the trust of the brand.
The features on the site include daily promotions, increased betting lines, and the Playup Playbook.
The Playbook is a blog where punters can see the latest sporting and horse racing news. Does the team at Playup need to do this? No, but they go the extra mile to make sure their customers have the best possible experience.
Playup covers major sports and sporting events. We have seen a more comprehensive list, as it’s missing some of the niche sports, but overall, punters should be happy.
Rather than focus on quantity, the focus is primarily on quality. You get some of the best sporting odds in Australia, which includes countless promotions. A regular promo run by Playup is the 103% lines, where punters get the best odds for selected fixtures.
A big range of betting options is available for every game, so the exotic punters should be pleased about this.
The horse racing platform isn’t quite as impressive as the sports section. All the Australian, New Zealand, and international markets are there, but there isn’t as much detail.
A lack of futures’ betting markets is a big concern, especially for the autumn and spring racing carnivals. Races such as the Melbourne Cup and Golden Slipper are on the list, but it’s a small list.
The odds are on the wrong side of value, which is another disappointing aspect of the horse racing platform. We’d expect this to improve as Playup establishes its presence in the racing industry.
The original Playup App was designed only for fantasy sports players, but the new version has all the best betting features.
Available for Android and iOS users, the app is easy to install, and you only need to visit Playup and click download.
Playup customer service
Playup is a modernised bookmaker, and they know how vital customer service is to Australian players. The live chat team is available from 7 am – 12 am Monday to Sunday, and there is also phone and email hotlines.
The team is always helpful with any queries, and it all adds to the personalised experience.
There is still some improvement left in this bookmaker, and that’s a good thing. It hasn’t been running for overly long, and you should expect to see more features and better racing odds in due course.
Overall, it’s an impressive entrance to the Australian market, and it’s onwards and upwards.
