Mad Bookie Review

Mad Bookie Screen Shot**Mad Bookie has now re-branded to PlayUp.**

Launching in 2015, Mad Bookie is one of the more recent bookmakers to enter into the online sports betting marketplace in Australia. Mad Bookie is licensed in the Northern Territory and is one of the few Australian owned and operated bookmakers available in Australia.

Mad Bookie features great odds on most of their racing markets, including offering ‘Best Tote’ odds on all Australian thoroughbred racing. Fixed odds betting is also offered for all Australian and New Zealand thoroughbred, Harness and Greyhound racing.

Mad Bookie offer Australian punters a generous amount of sports and horse racing markets, however we’ve found the range of sports markets is not as substantial as what some of the bigger online bookmakers offer.

Overall Mad Bookie is a decent option for all Australian punters, it offers a very simple user friendly website and mobile app making it quick and easy for all level of punters to find markets and place bets. Although the current website lacks the features and sports markets as some of the bigger operators, it’s well worth joining Mad Bookie for the fact that they are Australian owned and operated.
