Sportsbet is an Australian bookmaker and online sports betting site. The company offers a full range of betting options, including live betting and more than 1000 Sports markets, as well as local and international horse racing odds updated in real time. In addition, the betWithMates feature allows punters to pool their funds and place a single bet on multiple events at the same time. The organiser of the group sets the buy-in amount and chooses how often they request an account top-up. Group members can then place bets on any market, at any time and are not locked in – they can withdraw their share at any point.

The founder of sportsbet, Matthew Tripp, anticipated the major boom in online and mobile betting and helped create the company to take advantage of it. Tripp developed technology that made it easy to bet and innovative marketing techniques such as money-back specials and “justice” refunds in the event of a very unlucky result.

The best tip for making money at sports betting is to start small, so that when you do lose, it won’t be a significant amount out of pocket. Also, be sure to keep track of all your bets (a standard spreadsheet works fine) and only bet on sports you are familiar with from a rules perspective, or follow closely regarding news about players and teams. This will help you make better decisions and minimise your losses.
