Most Aussies wanting to join an online sports betting site would want to join the best sports betting site. The question is, it’s pretty hard to know which one is the best sports betting site in Australia. No matter which sports betting site you visit they will all tell you they’re the best sports betting site in Australia.
If you remember one of my first post, the Sportingbet Review one, I mentioned that the sports betting site I really wanted to join was William Hill! The main reason for this was because they’ve been in the sports betting industry for ages and were one of the most respected sports betting agencies around. Unfortunately they weren’t taking on any Aussie customers. Instead they directed me to join either Sportingbet or Tom Waterhouse.
Because I thought Sportingbet to be the best sports betting site in Australia that was the one I joined. I later joined Bet365 and Sportsbet. I joined them partly to test the for this blog, but also because I’ve learned from experience that it’s best not to place all your eggs in one basket. Being a member of more than one of the best sports betting sites meant I could get the best odds. That and also I had other sites to fall back on if the one I was about to use went offline. Can you imagine the frustration of not being able to place a bet online minutes before the game because the sports site had crashed? :pull_hair:
William Hill The Best Sports Betting Site?
Way back in 2013 the Sydney Morning Herald reported William Hill To Axe Online Betting Brands. It said, “William Hill, which is one Britain’s biggest wagering operators, spent $700 million establishing a presence in Australia through the purchase of TomWaterhouse.com.au and Sportingbet (which owns Centrebet) in March.”
Well, I got an email the other day confirming that after all these years it’s finally going to happen. William Hill will be consolidating it’s sports betting sites in Australia. That means over time we will be saying goodbye to Sportingbet, Tom Waterhouse and Centrebet.
They reckon that Sportingbet will be the first to be rebranded by William Hill. Not surprising considering many people get it confused with Sportsbet. Centrebet will be next and finally Tom Waterhouse.
Personally I’m more than happy that William Hill will finally be unifying the brands. It will certainly decrease the confusion out there, that’s for sure. One would expect William Hill to continue to develop the Australian market and who knows, in time it could well become the best sports betting site in Australia.
