With the untimely end of ‘click to call’ betting, you now will always have to make a call to a betting operator to place a wager on any live sports markets with an Australian owned bookmaker. The frustrating aspect of this for punters is having to first make a call, then verify your information, relay which market you want to bet on, and by that time the odds may have changed anyway.
However, there are great international bookmakers who offers spectacular odds, and the ability to bet on major international sports live from within their website – even if you’re betting from within Australia. The bookmakers we’re talking about are Pinnacle and Betrally. Pinnacle offers better odds, and has a few other great features such as being arbitrage friendly, but Betrally offers a much broader range of live markets and betting options.
Betting Live with Pinnacle
You can read more about Pinnacle, one of our favourite bookmakers, in our detailed Pinnacle Bookmaker Review. They offer live betting on large international sports such as Basketball, Tennis, and American Football. The markets they offer will usually be limited to:
- Head to Head
- Line/Handicap – sometimes a variety of asian lines
- Match Totals
Click here to join Pinnacle, who are also great for placing pre-match bets due to their market leading odds. Our bookmaker margin survey found that they have far better odds than any Australian based bookmaker.
Betting Live with Betrally
Betrally is a UK based bookmaker who also offer their services to Australians. They offer a great range of international sports, with betting options that are similar to the pre-match markets you’ll find on Sportsbet and Bet365. As well as presenting the wide range of markets very intuitively on the interface, they also give visualisations and statistics on the game so you can track the game dynamics before placing your bet.
If you’re after the opportunity to bet live on sports at the touch of a button, these two bookmakers are a must join.
