Centrebet App & Mobile Betting
Centrebet originated in Alice Springs, Northern Territory and, in 1993, became the first bookmaker licensed in Australia. It was also the first bookmaker to go online in the Southern Hemisphere.
As with Tom Waterhouse, another household name in online bookmaking, Centrebet unsurprisingly became a takeover target and were bought by William Hill, a company boasting an 80-year history of bookmaking in the UK.
The sale was completed early in 2013 although it was not until 2016 the process of transferring Centrebet customers into WilliamHill clients was put to task. Centrebet is still being slowly absorbed by William Hill and Centrebet.com continues to operate as a ‘white label’ of its parent company.
There is no functioning Centrebet mobile app however and clicking ‘bet on mobile’ at the Centrebet website will direct you to a William Hill app page which offers William Hill / Centrebet mobile app downloads for iPhone and Android smart phone users.
Featuring easy registration, covering all racing codes and sports, the William Hill / Centrebet app has an entertaining blog section and is fun to use.
All of William Hill’s normal offers are available to Centrebet app users including ‘first past the post’ and ‘over the odds’ promotions. Furthermore, they guarantee to beat the TABs on all Australian racing and pay you out within 60 seconds of interim dividends.
CentreBet Melbourne Cup Offer
Centrebet are not like most other bookies. Rather than putting together flashy offers they concentrate on offering the best value across the broadest selection of markets possible. This approach extends to the Melbourne Cup where Centrebet’s highly competitive selection of prices has been available since the end of last year’s race and is backed by a best odds guarantee.
Centrebet Customer Support
Centrebet/William Hill accepts the following payment methods: MasterCard/Visa credit and debit card, PayPal, Skrill, Poli, Master Pass and Bpay.
