IASbet has now merged with leading Australian bookmaker Sportsbet, where new customers get up to $250 bonus on their first bet

IASbet was already part of the Sportsbet group of companies which was bought by Ireland’s biggest bookmaker, Paddy Power in 2011. In July that year, IASbet overhauled its website to provide its customers with better functionality and a bigger range of sports betting options, but has now completely merged with Sportsbet

Punters already signed up to IASbet are able to continue betting at Sportsbet, using their original IASBet log in details to access their account.

Offers and Promotions

Australian punters get a great sign up bonus from Sportsbet, receiving a bonus of up to $250, equal to their first bet placed.

Just as IASbet used to do, Sportsbet is continually rewarding its customers with bonuses and free bets which can claimed on Greyhound Racing, Harness Racing, Horse Racing and other sports.

Free Bets Explained:
Free bets and bonuses are given to customers for free play in the sportsbook and where specified on the website’s other gambling services like casino and games. AUFreebets largely feature bookmakers who offer new customers an introductory free bet or bonus for registering an account and either for placing the first bet or making a first deposit.
The free bets vary in amount according to the bookmaker’s own policies and are subject to terms and conditions. Customers will not receive the free bet stake with returns on winning free bets – for example if a $25 free bet wins at decimal odds 3.00 (fractional 2/1), the customer will receive $50.
Customers will be expected to risk real money before receiving free bets – for example place a $50 bet and receive a $50 free bet. Many bookmakers offering this type of free bet will allow customers to withdraw winnings from the free bet straightaway, but some bookmakers will ask for certain wagering requirements to be met – for example bet the amount of the free bet four times before withdrawing winnings.
Where customers receive a bonus based on the amount of the first deposit, the bonus amount will not be available for withdrawal until wagering requirements are met. The wagering requirement will involve betting the amount of the real money deposit and betting the amount of the bonus at least once and often more.
Occasionally, bookmakers may offer a risk free bet, where they will refund the stake if the first bet is a loser. Sometimes such refunds may be withdrawn instantly but most are awarded as a free bet and may have wagering requirements to meet.
