TopBetta is among the newer companies in the Australian betting industry. It was established in Newcastle in 2013, and has built up a reputation as one of the most innovative bookmakers around with a range of punter-friendly features. TopBetta describes itself as the first social betting platform in the world, and its popular betting tournaments give punters the opportunity to compete with each other to win cash prizes.
TopBetta offer a good deal with their bonus bets, awarding new players a $250 bonus bet at the time of their first deposit. The bonus bets must be used within thirty days and any winnings from bonus bets must be turned over twice before they can be withdrawn.
With its popular betting tournaments, TopBetta gives racing and sports punters the chance to bet against their mates instead of the bookmakers. There are a range of different TopBetta Racing Tournaments and TopBetta Sports Tournaments to suit every type of punter and all give a chance to TopBetta punters to win a range of great cash prizes.
TopBetta gives punters the option of betting with the GTopBetta Tote, which offers better odds than the Australian Totes, such as TAB, giving more value for money to Australian punters.
The handy TopBetta app can be downloaded as soon as you open an account with them. The app offers punters all they need to bet and enter the racing or sports tournaments. While the speed and reliability of the app makes it a useful mobile tool, it doesn’t offer access to the same range of betting markets that you can enjoy with many bookmakers.
For punters who like to show off their knowledge, TopTippa have a popular tipping competition. Players who join in can win weekly cash prizes by tipping in the AFL and NRL and they also have the opportunity to win a bigger prize if they are the top tipster when the season ends.
TopBetta Bet Features
GOAT Top brings a great deal to punters who enjoy betting on Australian horse racing, and guarantees to pay out at the top dividend of the three Australian Totes. While the regular Tote betting markets deduct between 17 and 25 percent out of the pool before paying out winners, GOAT Top only takes out 12 percent, giving Tote winners a larger share of the betting pool. For greyhound racing punters, TopBetta have GOAT Mid, which pays at the middle dividend across three Australia totes providing the GOAT Top does not go above this price.
New TopBetta customers can benefit from $250 in bonus bets at the time of their first deposit. Initial deposits will be matched 100 percent with bonus bets, right up to a maximum of $250. So, for example, if you put $200 in your new TopBetta account, you will be awarded $200 bonus bets. The Top Betta bonus bets only remain valid for a period of thirty days, after which they will become void. Any winnings earned through betting with bonus bet money must be turned over twice before withdrawal. Winnings must be turned over in forty-five days.
One of the popular TopBetta features that have helped the company to build up its position in the Australian industry are the TopBetta Tournaments. The TopBetta Racing Tournament product will appeal to racing punters and provides a range of different size tournaments with a prize pool to be won for each. Whatever their experience level or betting bank size, TopBetta punters will be able to enter a racing tournament that matches their preferences.
Sports betting fans will appreciate the TopBetta Sports Tournaments. These competitions offer punters the chance to win a share of a tournament betting pool. TopBetta offer tournaments that cover all of the most popular sports for punters of all experience levels. Entrance fees for the Sports Tournaments are between $2 and $110, and the tournament pools can be worth anything up to $10,000.
If you enjoy showing off your footy or rugby knowledge, then TopTippa is ideal for you! The TopBetta TopTippa product is a tipping competition focused on the NRL and the AFL and is available only to customers of TopBetta. TopTippa offers great weekly cash prizes for the top tipsters, and the leading tipster in each of the sports when the season ends, will win a major cash prize, and the title of the TopBetta tipster of the season.
Australian punters will like the fact that TopBetta is an Australian owned and operated company, listed on the Australian Stock Exchange. That means they are able to focus completely on the domestic market and to meet the needs of Australian punters.

TopBetta provides access to GOAT Top which pays out at the largest dividend of the three existing totes (NSW TAB, S-TAB and Tatts) on thoroughbred racing. Australian Tote markets take out between 17 and 25 percent from the pool before winnings are paid, but the GOAT Top only deducts a maximum of 12 percent, bringing a better deal for TopBetta punters. Greyhound punters will be able to benefit from GOAT Mid, which pays at the middle dividend across the three main totes, providing the GOAT Top does not go higher than this price.
With the TopBetta Protest Guarantee, if there is a protest against the first horse to finish is upheld, TopBetta will pay out for both the interim winner and the eventual winner after the protest has been resolved. The Protest Guarantee can be applied to win bets only, and cannot be used with Bonus Bet bets or with a multi bet, and the maximum payout is $2000.
Racing fans can also compete against their mates with Racing Tournaments. There are tournaments suitable for casual punters who bet $5 each way on a weekend and for ‘High Rollers’ who bet at a higher rate. TopBetta provide a starting bank and the rest is down to you. Anyone can win with a TopBetta tournament and claim part of the cash prize pool.
The winner in each tournament will pick up 60 percent of the prize pool and the second- placed entrant will benefit from 30 percent and 10 percent is given to the third-placed punter. TopBetta’s Racing Tournaments provide punters an opportunity to ‘Get in the Game’.
TopBetta’s sports betting product doesn’t provide the complete range of markets that you will find with many of the leading bookmakers. A recent study reported that TopBetta offered an average of 21 markets on each fixture, which was some way below the median availability of 61. But for most regular sports punters, the TopBetta range of markets will be sufficient.
While they don’t offer the depth of markets of some of their rivals, TopBetta do have an innovative Sports Tournament product. Most sports tournaments are focused on a round of fixtures in a particular league and allow to players to spend BettaBucks on any of the markets for any fixture in that round, and they can also play in season-long tournaments. Tournament fees are between $2 and $110 and prize pools can be up to $10,000 in value.
With TopTippa, punters can also earn prizes for the quality of their NRL or AFL tipping. All you need to do is choose your winners every week of the NRL and AFL seasons and you could earn one of the weekly prizes or the $1 million tipster of the season prize.
When it comes to the competitiveness of the odds on their sports markets, TopBetta performs on a par with their rivals, with standard line bets generally being around $1.91. Although they don’t offer all of the specialist markets you can find with some bookmakers, they do provide a good selection of betting opportunities for the most popular sports and leagues.
