Australian bookmaker Sportsbet.com.au has been operating for over 20 years and is licensed in the Northern Territory. They are one of the best known sports betting brands in Australia largely due to the enormous publicity they generate with some of their betting offers, money back on losing bets and some of the crazy early payouts on events that were not even completed! For example in 2010 in an Australian racing first , Sportsbet declared the Cox Plate a one-horse race and paid out over $250,000 on So You Think five days before the race!
Their odds are often referred to in the Australian media whenever bookie prices are quoted which further strengthens their brand and hence why most Australians have heard of Sportsbet
In 2009 Irelands' largest bookmaker Paddy Power took a stake in the company.
