On this page, Kruzey has provided a one-stop shop of BlueBet’s information for the discerning punter.
Before signing up, have a read through of our assessment of the overall BlueBet operation which is outlined below.
Who are BlueBet?
BlueBet kicked off in 2015, and was founded by the experienced CEO Michael Sullivan, who came from the SportingBet operation.
Financing the BlueBet business began in earnest during 2013, eventually becoming a fully Australian owned venture two years later.
Like PalmerBet, BlueBet is registered for business in New South Wales.
BlueBet is a member of the NSW Bookmaker’s Co-operative which is an association that guarantees payment of all winning bets placed with their members.
All telephone conversations with representatives of BlueBet are recorded on a Government approved voice logging system for the security of both the client and the bookmaker.
All internet wagers can be scrutinised (in real time) by the NSW Office of Liquor, Gaming and Racing.
BlueBet works out of offices at Royal Randwick Racecourse in Sydney.

BlueBet is currently not involved with any sponsorship activity.
BlueBet Sign up Process
I found the sign up process to be reasonably easy compared to other sites.
Downloading the APK file from the main website page to the mobile phone was straight forward, so too the install.
Unlike some other apps, there was no auto location finder (ie Google Maps) to determine your physical home address, which was both simple but odd, considering what other sites do.
Also, there is no segueing into a ID Verification screen as this information is now a compulsory requirement for signing up with betting agencies.
More on that underneath.
If you were new to signing up to an online betting agency and knew nothing about ID verification, then you could quite easily sail along with BlueBet being none the wiser.
That is until you hit a brick wall.
Unfortunately, there are four issues which makes BlueBet’s deployment of ID Verification burdensome.
1. As mentioned above during the sign up process. It is not made clear enough to the new customer the importance of verification. This should form part of the sign in process and not be left as an afterthought to be discovered later.
2. On the ID Verification screen, BlueBet uses a manual outdated method of proving one’s identity via scanning of key documents such as passports, drivers license and medicare, and then having them sent in by snail mail or email (with digital attachments).
3. Yet, if you go to the Help section via the hamburger menu, and scroll down to the section called Verification, it is there that they mention the Green ID method which is now commonplace throughout Australia’s digital landscape. Green ID is used by others online bookies such as SportChamps and PalmerBet, two that we have recently reviewed, and it works great.
4. The manual process as per Step 2 takes time, and will preclude the instant use of the BlueBet facility until such time that your ID verification is approved.
Green ID should be first and foremost for ID verification, and should be plastered all over the Verification screen at the very least, not hidden away in a non-prominent location. It would be good to see BlueBet making a documentation change to reflect this.
* I like the clean layout, it might be a bit simplistic but that’s what some punters are looking for.
* The Black Book functionality is a very nice feature.
Click on Login in the top right corner, enter your credentials to hook on.
The website uses Responsive HTML so it will look the same as your mobile app, but using the Web version will probably use up more battery life on your phone.
Also, clicking on the hamburger menu sees the screen jump around all over the place.
My experience was very erratic. I would recommend using the mobile app instead.
BlueBet has apps for both the Android and IOS platforms. I’m working with the Android app, and it seems to be clean and basic, without bells and whistles. A better site map would work wonders especially after the confusion around ID verification.
Everything is menu-loaded, while a Quick Multis button bar sits along the bottom, whereas other sites use the bottom of the screen for things such as a quick navigation to things like My Bets, My Notifications and My Account.
Funding Types/Deposit Methods
Deposits for account funding can be made using Credit/Debit card, POLi, EFT transfer, BPAY, cheques and cash.
BlueBet Withdrawal Options
Customers who have used a credit card for deposit purposes must return the equal amount of their deposits back to the same credit card. Any surplus goes into a nominated bank account. Other withdrawal methods are bank transfer, which takes approximately 1-2 days.
BlueBet currently does not offer a debit card linked to the customer’s account balance.
Since it’s 2015 Inception, the market has determined that BlueBet is an agency specialising in the three code operation of gallops, trots and greyhounds.
Of course, like all the other online betting agencies, BlueBet does deal in other sports all of which familiar to most Aussie punters. From the main hamburger menu, go to:
Yes, there is a specific page for Promotions and you’ll need to login to this particular screen to see all the weekly action. This area looks well maintained and should prove popular to punters looking for a bit of action.
BlueBet offers numerous fixed price odds on racing, as well as the typical array of exotics.
Quick Multis are far easier to navigate in BlueBet than some other sites we’ve seen. You can see these on any race card usually at the footer of the page.
They also offer novelty bets such as ‘odds and evens’ and something that I haven’t seen that often but one called ‘inside outside’, which is to do with a horse winning from certain barrier draws.
Again, you can see these at the bottom of every race card.
Other Betting Features/Race Card
Compared to other betting agencies in Australia, BlueBet is lacking in some of the additional features that others have. This may be a non negotiable for some punters, while others might not think it’s necessary.
There is no live sport or racing coverage on BlueBet.
The featured bets functionality is not available on BlueBet.
Yes, you can see fluctuations on horses within races. Click on the horse’s name or the trainer’s name, and a new screen will pop up which will show a few other options one of which is fluctuations.
The bet tracker functionality is not available on BlueBet.
The speed map functionality is not available on BlueBet.
Yes there is a form guide, actually there are two. The first is a short form guide and abbreviated version thereof, and then there is a full guide. Like Fluctuations, click on the horse’s name to open up a new screen to see this detail. The abbreviated form guide is for the selected horse only, the full form guide is for all horses in the race.
Much like the Trash Talk function which we featured on our review of the SportChamps app a few weeks ago, BlueBet does something similar with their Social function/facility.
Here you can invite other BlueBet users into your social channel.
Again the community you build up is purely within the BlueBet application and doesn’t drop out to an external link like Facebook, which we noticed on the PalmerBet app the other week via their Bet Book function.
Not many online betting agencies include a Black Book function.
But BlueBet does, which is a great addition in my opinion.
It removes the need to use a Black Book function on an external website and the fact that you can use it within your BlueBet mobile environment and integrate it with your betting activities does add appeal.
To use the Black Book, click on any horse in any race, particularly one you want to follow, go into its details (click on the trainers name), and where it says ‘add comment to Black Book’, enter some text.
Once you save it, a little blue tag will show up next to the horse’s name which would indicate that it’s now in your Black Book.
To refer to the Black Book go to the hamburger menu:
->Social ->Black Book
Like some other betting agencies which we’ve reviewed just recently, Responsible Gambling is given a high priority and there is extensive detail on the relevant BlueBet page to do with this topic.
To refer to this material, click on the Help menu option, then go to the footer of the screen and you will see the Responsible Gambling link.
Customer and Online Help
Yes customer help is available in all manners of communication, including a Live Chat facility accessible from the hamburger menu.
The Help page is the same as the Contact Us page, it provides details for phone, email, fax and post.
BlueBet has been in the market now for 4 years, but I’m thinking they really need to up the ante to be competitive with some of the other offerings out there.
I realise this takes time and money as an overall investment to the business, and therein lies the difference between attracting a customer between betting agency 1 versus betting agency 2.
As mentioned, the ID verification process needs tidying up, while the race card functions probably need a rework to be competitive, especially against the Ladbrokes offering which is really good and sets the industry standard.
The Black Book function is a good idea, considering not many other betting agencies have deployed this.
Mostly there is a lot of similarity between BlueBet and all the other betting agencies, it’s really only the points-of-difference which will decide whether punters will go with them or not.
Still, worth an investigation.
