Luxbet Sports Review

Australia's Northern Territory Racing Commission licenses Luxbet, which arrived in September 2008 and is owned by the major Australian company Tabcorp Holdings. Among the other leading brands managed by Tabcorp in Australia are TAB, Sky Racing and Tabcorp Gaming Solutions.

Over 30 different sports are available for betting on through Luxbet - although not all of those sports might be open to you in that way simultaneously. It’s therefore well worth regularly returning to Luxbet to seek out fresh opportunities.

Right now, Luxbet can only be viewed in one language and used with a single currency, the Australian dollar. This underlines the site's commitment to Australia's betting market.

Software/Site & Graphics:

While the site's interface makes extensive use of green and grey to aesthetically pleasing effect, the throwing of red and yellow into the mix as well can make it look a bit... cluttered. For example, yellow is randomly used for the 'JOIN RIGHT NOW' link, while red frames the main text on the page headed 'ABOUT US'. The software's smoothness is not hampered, however.

Sports:

With more than 30 sports to choose from, you'd expect plenty to keep you busy. However, we often found options greyed out when we attempted to peruse them - presumably just due to a lack of events happening in those sports. It's fortunate that what options we did see available still offered a pleasing amount of variety.  

So, there are globally popular sports such as soccer, golf and basketball alongside smaller-scale favourites like American football and Australian Rules.

Support:

Should you run into difficulty using Luxbet, you might not have to deal with that struggle for too long. The site has a "Live Help" option that is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Alternatives to using that include sending an email or phoning a provided number.

Extra Value:

The site advertises live betting as an option; click on the 'Live Betting' link on the green navigation bar at the top to see a list of matches currently progressing.

We especially like the good range of ways in which you can gamble at Luxbet through a mobile device. It's easy to see, above the previously cited navigation panel, links to download Luxbet apps for Android and iOS - and there is also a mobile-optimised site at https://m.luxbet.com/nexttogo.

General Info:

It's standard for sports betting sites to offer promotions, and those at Luxbet look unlikely to grow stale anytime soon. Click the 'Weekly Specials' link near the foot of the website's interface; you can then see what fresh treats Luxbet has recently decided to offer players who tick particular boxes.

There is also a rewards club, called ClubXtra, for owners and trainers of horses.

Deposits / Withdrawal Options:

Depositing funds is possible via these methods:

  • Visa/MasterCard credit cards
  • BPAY and POLi
  • Direct bank transfers

Withdrawing funds can be done by direct bank transfer - although, should you have deposited with a Visa/MasterCard credit card, your initial withdrawal will see the money paid to that card.

Payout Policy:

When withdrawing to an Australian bank account, expect the money to arrive in 1-3 days. International transfers can take a week.

Bottom Line:

While Luxbet could benefit from plugging a few holes here and there, it can still take pride in offering a website on which various betting opportunities can be easily taken. This helps to explain why it has secured a place among Australia's best-regarded sports betting sites.
