BlueBet is a no-nonsense Australian bookmaker that is owned and operated by legendary bookie, Michael Sullivan. Known for giving punters a fair go when fielding at the track, ‘Sullo’ offers the same service for punters through BlueBet.
It is obvious that BlueBet isn’t on the same level as the big boys in Australian wagering, however, they hold their own on a number of fronts. We found that they truly excel with racing where they cover a huge range of meetings and have promotional activity on features. Their web / mobile / app is a simple offering and probably lets them down a little especially as there is no live streaming available. If you are a price sensitive punter then it is definitely worth checking out BlueBet because they can be quite competitive on price depending on the market.
Overall rating: 3.5 out of 5.

A leading bookie for more than 30 years, ‘Sullo’ is known for giving punters a fair go and that is exactly what BlueBet is all about.
