Something of a household name in Sydney betting circles, Palmerbet has been active in the betting game for over 30 years. The online site is a fairly new development for them – they only got online in 2013 – but they're committed to providing a youthful, energetic and fair platform for punters!
The mobile site has the signature pale blue theme, and is very clear and easy to use. As soon as you load the site up you're presented with upcoming horse races, and the icons running along the top of the screen give you quick access to other sports. There are no issues with screen flipping either, everything stays well laid out.
The app is available to download via the mobile site thanks to a very obvious link too, so you don’t have to mess around with navigating through menus to find it. You'll get all the same services on the app as well, so it's certainly worth a look. Overall, app users and mobile site visitors alike will enjoy PalmerBet.
All the online resources are very user friendly. Even though they're up against some stiff competition, the site is familiar enough for anyone that's ever used top betting sites before, while still remaining distinctive enough for you to know you're on Palmerbet's site and no one else's. The left-hand bar offers you all the options for sports.
This might have been better placed as it can be easy to miss. Choosing your favourite sport is easy though, thanks to the large buttons on the mobile site and the clear 'sports' section on the main site menu. Overall, both newcomers and experienced online punters should find their way around easily.
Being pretty new to the world of online betting, Palmerbet outsourced their site's backed software development to the same team that developed numerous other top sites – Wiliam Digital Agency. That's a good thing for Palmerbet, because as a result they've got a well laid-out site that's very welcoming.
Palmerbet does have a slightly higher bookmaker margin than some others, countered by the fact they also offer a few more markets. You might not get the very best odds, but you'll have a few better sports options here than in some other places.
You can bet on everything from futsal to surfing on Palmerbet's site, which makes it a great choice if you're into a diverse range of sports. They also specialise in horse racing betting thanks to their heritage. They're one of the better places to go for a more interesting variety of odds including horse racing futures.
When it comes to payment serives featured, punters can use a direct bank transfer, credit cards like Visa or Mastercard, BPay, or Poli to make deposits with Palmerbet. Using Visa, Mastercard or Poli is the best bet as they're instant transfers – the other options can take up to two working days.
Withdrawals are only available using credit cards or a direct bank transfer, both of which can take up to two working days. Not ideal if you want to get your hands on your winnings as soon as possible. It's also worth noting that payments can only be done in specific increments - $0.50 for deposits and whole dollars in withdrawals.
For a newcomer to the online betting arena, Palmerbet do a lot right. They certainly offer an excellent selection of sports to place bets on and if you're a horse racing fan you'd be hard pressed to find a bookmaker with better expertise and options in this area. The only downside is that compared to their competitors, the odds at Palmerbet aren't great. All in all though, it's a well-designed and functional platform to use!
