BlueBet Review & Promotions
Say hello to BlueBet, an Australian-owned online bookmaker that was first established back in 2015, by the CEO and Founder Michael Sullivan. Some of you may recognise him as he was the former Chief Executive of William Hill and also the CEO of Centrebet before starting the existing venture of BlueBet. With all his knowledge and expertise, Michael has put together an excellent betting platform for Australian punters, as you will find out from this review.
The idea behind launching this brand was to compete with the English owned bookmakers who are currently taking charge of the Australian market. He explained that he feels the English brands do not understand what Australian punters are after and believes that his bookie, BlueBet, can give them exactly what they want.
This online bookmaker is licensed and regulated by Racing NSW and is also a member of NSW Bookmakers Co-operative.
BlueBet has a layout that you would expect from a top bookie. It seems that in order to compete well with the bigger, foreign brands, they have copied a similar theme, something that punters will be used to and easily navigate. If you could compare it to anything, you would say it has a BetFred like approach.
Across the top of the online betting site, we have the BlueBet logo, as well as the login options. Down the left-hand side is where you can find the menu. Use the menu to navigate through the different markets on the betting platform and easily find the bets you are after.

Live betting is a feature that is sort of new to the sports betting world and it brings lots of new entertainment with it.

This can benefit you as you then already have good judgement of what is happening in the game.
