CENTREBET BEHIND THE SCENES
Having bet with Centrebet extensively over the last few years we can now advise that Centrebet has recently been taken over by Sportingbet. A strategic move to grow into new markets for Sportingbet, one of the world’s larger bookmakers. Sportingbet has been listed on the London Stock Exchange since 2001 and has more than 12 years experience in the industry.
Pre the Sportingbet takeover, Centrebet was a savvy Aussie bookie with great reputation for high limit flexible betting offers and a claim to being the first sportsbook in the Southern Hemisphere to accept bets over the Internet.
Centrebet is popular with customers in Australia. It used to take punters from around the globe, but due to Sportingbet's licencing and marketing strategies, membership is now really focussed on Aussies bettors only.
PAYMENTS & CASHING OUT WINNINGS AT CENTREBET
Centrebet accepts bets in Australian dollars. Deposits and withdrawals are free and encypted for security.
DEPOSITS - A minimum deposit of $30AUD applies for credit card deposits.
Payment methods available include: Visa & Mastercard Credit & Debit Cards (Centrebet is Verified by VISA and is a Mastercard SecureCode site for transaction security), Bank Transfers, BPay, Poli, Neteller, PayPal, Moneybookers/Skril.
WITHDRAWALS - You can withdraw all or some of your account balance at any time, there are a few rules, nothing unusual, and payments usually take between 1 and 5 days depending on the method. Bank transfers, Neteller and Moneybookers/Skrill all work really well. No betting tax is deducted and the only fees that you may incur are your own bank's, not Centrebet's.
MAY 2013 JOIN BONUS AND BETTOR PROMOTIONS
Australians: Just open an account at Centrebet, place your first bet, sports or racing and you will automatically get a Bonus Bet token to the same value as your first bet, up to $200. (Sorry, but due to licencing constraints, Australians from Victoria and South Australia are excluded from this offer). Using your bonus bet is easy - just click on " use bonus token" in your bet slip when placing a bet. Other offers apply for bettors from other countries. Centrebet web site is geotargeted so click through for your offer.
There are some great free bets, bonuses and cashback offers on NFL, AFL and Tennis betting.
CENTREBET BETTING COVERAGE
Centrebet offers fixed-odds betting on world-wide sports plus selected mainstream horse racing events and greyhound racong. Centrebet covers over 8000 sports and racing events each week.
Centrebet is especially good for UK and European football betting, and Scandinavian football coverage - even down to Divisions 2 and 3 for most countries - which is great during those long hot summer months when no one else is playing football! Live (in-play) betting on NBA, NHL, EPL, NRL, AFL and more. No Asian Handicaps though.

WHAT GOONERSGUIDE.COM LIKES ABOUT CENTREBET
1. Often very competitive odds
2. No minimum deposit and it's easy to join - and to cash out your winnings.
3. A very friendly service team and a 'no BS' approach to offers on site and betting terms and
conditions. (Their 40 years of betting shows through!)
4. One betting account for sports betting, Poker (on the Playtech iPoker Network) and top
casino gambling. (But not if you're an Australian as you can't play games or casino)
5. Centrebet accepts big wagers - and are flexible to accomodate high roller and system betting.
6. Centrebet supports a good range of payment methods, debit cards, credit cards,
Moneybookers... (our personal favourite)
WHAT WE DON'T LIKE ABOUT CENTREBET SPORTSBOOK
1. No Asian Handicap betting
2. A huge range of "forbidden jurisdictions" due to licencing constraints and marketing decisions trying to drive you to join Sportingbet bookmaker instead (who GoonersGuide.com does not rate!)
OVERALL VIEWS AND RATING OF CENTREBET
Centrebet offers excellent betting coverage, and historically has been an especially useful bookie over the Summer months for great Scandanavian football betting. They have a good reputation as being 'above board' and offer a wide selection of secure payment methods - we highly recommend Centrebet to Australian punters.
