In this review, we will be taking a look at JungleBet, and while they may look like a kid’s game, we can most certainly assure you that they are 100% a legit Australian betting site.
How’s the Layout?
As mentioned previously, the big difference between JungleBet and most other Australian betting sites is that they have taken on a much more unique approach to the appearance of their betting platform, offering a visually stunning, bright and unique appearance coupled with the same essential navigational styling that bettors have become accustomed to.
Let’s get started and head into the Sign up form.
Time to Sign Up!
I’m always a little skeptical of sites that appear a little different to most, but I must admit, I loved how quick the signup process was for JungleBet. The screenshot shown below is quite literally the only information you need to provide to get yourself up and running and into the site, which is great if you want to jump in and see what promotions are on offer before venturing any further.
Let’s get some money into our JungleBet account.
Adding some funds
Depositing funds into JungleBet was just as easy as filling in the signup form; though they do only have Visa and Mastercard available as depositing options, it’s a good way to go, considering that everyone in Australia has at least one of these. I popped a bunch of cash in and I was ready to jump into the race section.
Now that’s done, let’s lay down some money!
Placing a bet
To do my review of JungleBet, I placed bets on the mobile website, the app (both Android and IOS), and also on the desktop; however, to save time and not flood the page with dozens of images, I will only show screenshots from the desktop (easier for me that way).
Placing a bet on JungleBet was a breeze and was as simple as finding a race, choosing my bet, choosing my amount to bet, and then confirming the bet. Also, it is worth noting that I had no issues on any platform while placing bets.
The Form Guide
JungleBet has an extremely minimalistic form guide approach on the race listing showing flucs, insights, and TOTE; I really like the way they handle their insights, as you can see in the screenshot below with the gold boxes under the flucs showing that Grand Horizon is a consistent performer and that Rockbarton Fashion is Best Rated and won its last start.
Unfortunately, JungleBet does not have a full Form Guide available on their platform; it would be great if this was a feature they choose to implement in the future, as it is a handy addition to any bookie.
Additionally, I could not seem to find a Speed map on the platform either; if they are choosing to retain this short-form guide approach for the future of their betting platform, it would be a good idea to add a speed map into the mix to be displayed on each horse in some way.
Popping on a bet
Rockbarton, as shown above, was best rated and winner in its last start; for the sake of placing a bet, I decided it was the better option of all the horses in this race, so I whacked $5 on the nose. The payment was processed without any issues, and the bet slip was in my account instantaneously.
Setting your Deposit Limit
You can set your deposit limit one of two different ways at JungleBet, either when first setting up your account, a page will be displayed directly after the signup form, and the other directly before you deposit funds into your account, additonally you can also choose to edit your deposit limit at any point in time by heading to the account section and fixing it in there.
Betting on Sports
As a sports fan it should come as no surprise to the readers that I love placing a bet on sports, like most other betting sites the sports section is easily accessible from the homescreen and has all current sports available to bet on displayed neatly and clean.
Verifying your account
After placing a sports bet, I thought it would be a good time to verify my account as I could not remove any funds before verification. This was pleasingly a very quick and easy process, and all I needed to do was provide my driver’s license to be verified.
Though they look like a kid’s app and somewhat have the feel of a casino app, I actually really like it; instead of the plain old boring betting style that is synonymous with a lot of other apps out there, JungleBets’ fresh and inventive approach how to place a bet adds a nice touch of spice. This JungleBet review has left me feeling that there is a whole other way beting could be done, and to be honest, I really like it!

JungleBet Deposits and Withdrawals
JungleBet deposits and withdrawals are extremely simplistic and easy, and with limited deposit and withdrawal options available, you are free of the endless list of deposit and withdrawal options clogging some other betting sites.
There are only two different depositing options available at JungleBet. However, most Australians over the age of 18 (if not all) have access to at least one of these depositing options.
The minimum amount you can deposit at JungleBet is $10.00.
The only withdrawal option available at JungleBet is Bank Transfer, however given how good their app is I expect them to be having more options available in the future.
- Bank Transfer
The minimum withdrawal at JungleBet is $10. However, all deposited funds must be turned over at least once prior to withdrawal.
JungleBet Minimum Bet
JungleBet’s minimum bet is $1.00.

JungleBet promotions are up there with the best; however, due to Australian laws, we are not able to promote them here and show you what is available; if you would like to check them out for yourself, click the link above to access the quick sign-up page.
JungleBet Contact and Customer Service
JungleBet has live chat and support tickets as customer service options; they do have a contact number on their site also however, it is not heavily promoted, so it is safe to assume this is a last resort-only type of scenario; therefor, we have given them their due diligence and chosen not to promote it here also.
