TopBetta Review

In this independent review of TopBetta, we will tell you exactly what we like (and dislike) about the bookmaker which has been in operation since 2010.

TopBetta offer customers the chance to play in sports tournaments where they predict what will happen, as well as bet on racing and sports in the more traditional manner. 

New Customer Offer

New customers to TopBetta can claim the new sign-up bonus with a first deposit match available up to $100*. Use the promo code MAXCASH during the sign-up process.

The offer is not available for NSW, VIC, WA or SA residents. Other conditions, including turnover requirements, apply. Bonus Bet expires 7 days after awarded. New Clients Only. Terms & Conditions Apply.


‘Protest Payouts’ are offered by TopBetta so that if a protest against the first horse to finish is upheld, TopBetta will pay you out on both the interim winner (first past the post) as well as the winner listed in the official dividends after the protest has been finalised.

They also tend to offer a promotion on a significant sporting event including AFL, NRL and soccer.

If you are a sports fan who likes to bet with traditional bookmakers, then we recommend you check out a bookmaker such as Crownbet, Ladbrokes or Sportsbet who all offer a large number of promotions. But if you are after something a little bit different, then TopBetta are worth a try.

Odds and Markets

Before getting started it is worthwhile reading the Terms and Conditions as TopBetta states within these that it is a site for the social gambler and they have set very stringent maximum payouts. 

For starters the maximum an individual can win for a day is $20,000. This is regardless of your winnings for the day so that if you were to win $30,000 for the day, TopBetta will only pay you out for $20,000 over a given 24 hour period.

This is much smaller than a bookmaker such as Sportsbet who will allow clients to be paid out up to $150,000 for a single non-metropolitan thoroughbred race and $300,000 for a metropolitan event. 

Our recommendation is that if you are a punter that wagers a large stake then one of the bigger corporate bookmakers would be a better fit for you.

From a racing point of view, TopBetta lag behind when it comes to Fixed Odds betting. This is becoming a popular method of betting as the punter can secure a locked in price and TopBetta is a little time behind their rivals when it comes to markets.

For racing markets, TopBetta offers ‘GOAT SP’ which stands for the Greatest of All Tote dividends declared or SP. GOAT SP combines the Official Starting Price (or TopBetta fixed SP, should an official SP be unavailable) and the final Global Tote dividend, and pays customers at whichever is greater.

TopBetta offers a small range of Sports betting options with AFL, baseball, basketball, boxing, cricket, darts, golf, rugby and soccer on offer. 

This is fine if you only bet on these sports in a traditional sense, but for any punter looking for a wider range of sports or a vast array of betting markets (such as player performance markets or stats betting) then you will need to look elsewhere again.


Now to TopBetta’s draw card, there are Racing Tournaments and Sports Tournaments available where you bet “Fantasy Bucks” in a bid to top the daily leaderboard. There are feature tournaments run each day.

The principle of tournament betting is the same as traditional betting – namely that you bet on the outcomes that you think will happen at the available odds. It is better to win at bigger odds, although it matters little as to how these prices compare to competitors as you are betting as part of a pool.

To bet into tournaments simply:

1. Create an account for FREE, Log in with your username. Then choose the racing or sports tournament you wish to play and enter.
2. Bet your BettaBucks (Fantasy Dollars) across any of the games and bet options in that tournament. Remember, you need to bet all your BettaBucks to qualify.
3. After each game, check the leaderboard and work out your strategy - whether you bet again or sit tight and hold on for the win.


The TopBetta website is nice and compact, with customers able to navigate around the site pretty easily. This operator uses a clean colour scheme to set out their various tournaments and also have Racing and Sports sections available.

You can select a tournament by entering one of the advertised options and follow the simple instructions, or if you are betting on a racing or sports market simply choose the race or event and the option you wish to back. The options are laid out neatly in a left-hand menu (sports) or in the top panel (racing).
