Palmerbet are a boutique bookie that certainly punches above their weight. Not blessed with the turnover and marketing spend of their competitors, Grant and Andrew Palmer have built a nice little offering here which certainly makes it worthwhile to open an account with them. They have many of the extras that you'll find with other corporates, however, their offering lacks things like live streaming. If that doesn’t bother you then betting with Palmerbet shouldn’t be an issue. Like many of their competitors, opening an account with them is seamless. iPhone or Android users can access Palmerbet through their smartphones and their app / mobile / desktop offering certainly doesn’t disappoint.
Their pricing is competitive on a number of markets too which is yet another tick.
Overall rating: 4 out of 5.
