Most Popular Online Sports Betting Sites

My favourite, and very popular, sports betting sites aresafe secure popular online sports betting

  • William Hill: Aussie punters love William Hill which was the first online sports betting site I joined.  If you haven’t joined yet why not take advantage of their deposit $50 and get $150 in Bonus Bets! Note that exclusions apply? You can read my William Hill review here.
  • Sportsbet: These guys are fast becoming one of my favourite online sports betting sites. One of the reasons for that is because of their MultiBet Cash Out feature. You can read my Sportsbet review here.
  • Bet365: Is another very popular online sports betting site. They’ve been around for years and are the third online sports betting site in my sports betting arsenal. They’re so good they even have their very own page on this site which has a link to my Bet365 review.

Unlike other sites that just link to sports betting sites with no personal experience, I’ve actually joined these sites and use them on a weekly basis to place my online sports bets. You’ll find the proof of these online bets in my posts as I show my readers the ins and outs of online sports betting.

 Picking A Safe Secure Sports Betting Site

Before joining any online sports betting sites I always make sure it fulfils four very important criteria.

  1. It’s been around for several years. If they’ve been able to last for several years then they must be doing something right otherwise they would have folded up.
  2. There wasn’t any negative feedback. The internet being what it is you can always tell when a site is shonky by the amount of negative feedback it’s accumulated.
  3. They were easy to use. The last thing you want to do is to spend ages trying to work out how to use your new online sports betting site.
  4. It has to have a sports betting app that is easy to use. You will come to love placing bets online once you have access to a half decent sports betting app.

The More Sports Betting Sites The Better

I have a very good reason for joining more than one online sports betting site. Naturally I wanted to be able to write honest reviews for you guys. Another good reason was so I had something to fall back on if one of them ever went offline, which actually has happened. More importantly though is that I can check to see who has the best odds before placing a bet.

Other popular sports betting sites that I haven’t joined yet include, SkyBetUniBet, and LuxBet!

If you’re interested in earning money by promoting online sports betting sites as an affiliate you will find this post really interesting.

Even more important than that is my post on responsible gambling. As long as you follow those guidelines theres no reason why you shouldn’t have an enjoyable online betting experience.

This includes shopping online, buying lottery tickets online, Paying your bills online and amongst many other things, placing bets on your favourite sports online. Let’s look at some of the things that make placing a bet online so popular.

  • No more waiting in queue to place a bet. This would have to be at the top of the list as far as whats driving the popularity of online sports betting.
  • The ability to shop around so you can get the best odds. The better the odds the more you can win. Just one of the reasons why I have joined three of the best online sports betting sites. Don’t worry, I’ll list them at the end of the post.
  • Placing a bet online is easy. No more phone calls which end up with you being put on hold. No more having to drive to the local TAB. Now you can place your bets online from the comfort of you own home.

William Hill


This week I’ve decided to forgo the Sportsbet multi as they no longer have the special where they refund your money if you only get one let wrong. I’ve used Sportsbet for my Fremantle vs Hawthorn game and William Hill for the Collingwood vs West Coast game.

You can see proof of my bets here.

The last thing to do is to enter the Sportsbet Million Dollar Tipping competition! This is a must as it gives me a chance to win $10,000. This AFL/NFL tipping competition would have to be the best one around as $10,000 is up for grabs every single week.

If you haven’t given the Million Dollar Tipping a go, you should.

Good luck with your AFL round 18 2017 tips.

There was a slight improvement with this weeks AFL Round 17 2017 Results as Fortuna tipped 7 out of the nine. That’s one better than the round 16 results but still 2 short of a perfect score. This brings Fortuna’s running total for round 17 to 87. How does that compare to your tipping results?

Before discussing the AFL Round 17 2017 Results let’s see exactly how Fortuna went.

Fortuna’s AFL Round 17 2017 Results

AFL Round 17 2017 Results
Unfortunately for me Fortuna stuffed up on the very first game, St. Kilda vs Essendon. This was particularly disappointing because it was the first leg of my Sportsbet multi! As it turns out Sportsbet must have ended their promotion where they would refund your money on 4+ multi’s as it was the only leg I got wrong and there was no refund. My fault for not checking to see if that promotion was still running. Oh well, shit happens.

Who would have though that Essendon would have won this game, especially after St. Kildas previous performance against Richmond. You can check out the full match coverage and results here.

Fortuna’s other stuff up was the Gold Coast vs Collingwood game. According to Foxsports the Magpies did it all for Buckley. That’s a really nice thought but I personally feel they were just lucky. Why wait all that time before finally performing for their coach. If they really had any respect for Buckley they should have been playing real footy a lot sooner than the round 17 match.

Still, I will accept any improvement in Fortuna’s footy tipping. I’m still hoping she will pull out a perfect score soon.

Another great positive to the AFL round 17 2017 results is the Crows win against Melbourne. That win puts them at top of the ladder but they’re hanging on by the skin of the teeth. They need some really good wins to secure that spot. Go the Crows.
