Odds - Average
We calculated the margin for EliteBet by analyzing the odds they offer. We further ranked them in one of the following three categories:
From 1% to 5%: Low
From 5.01% to 7%: Normal
From 7.01% to 10%: High
We got our results by taking into account the odds for final result outcomes measured in line with the over / under for different soccer leagues. Getting the average results using this method, we were able to obtain the margins for each league and the overall betting margin for the bookmaker.
EliteBet has an overall average margin of 5.31% for soccer and falls in the normal margins category. In the first section with Spanish La Liga and Seria A, the margin is at 4.98%. With Premier League and Championship, in the second section, the margin is at 5.06%. Finally, taking the Netherlands Eredivisie, Swedish Allsvenskan and Austrian Bundesliga into account, the margin is at 5.89%.
Range of Sports and Markets - Poor
Unfortunately, the sports coverage at Elite is poor, but the good news is that it includes the most popular sports. This means that you can wager on sports like soccer, cricket, tennis, horse racing, rugby and even E-Sports, but you won’t find obscure sports.
The depth of football betting is definitely lacking here as for most football games. For example, if we take a look over the football matches at the weekend, there are only 10 betting markets available for games from European top leagues like the Italian Serie A, English Premier League or Spanish La Liga.
Elitebet currently applies a minimum bet limit of $1 for online bets and $10 for phone in-play transactions.
As for in-play betting, this can only be done through the telephone as most of the Australian betting websites. Furthermore, there is no live streaming service available, meaning that you won’t be able to watch the race you’ve bet on.
The horse racing section features both national and international races from around the world. The upcoming horse races can be seen right in the centre of the website and also at the top, while the future meetings can be found under the ‘Meetings’ tab.
The most popular horse racing bets available at EliteBet are win, place, each way, quinella, trifecta and multis.
You can practically bet on anything from simple wagers on the win, place or each-way markets, to more complex ones like Best Tote Plus SP, Best of 3 Totes, Best of 2 Totes, etc.
About the bookmaker
EliteBet is one of the newest entries in the Australian betting industry, but we have to say that they surprised us through their website simplicity. Elitebet is licensed by Racing NSW and regulated by Racing NSW and the NSW Office of Liquor, Gaming and Racing.
The EliteBet website is very easy to navigate and uses a three-column layout, with sports listed on the left-hand side, betting markets and odds in the centre and the betting slip on the right.
Unfortunately, there is no dedicated mobile app at the moment of writing this review, but EliteBet offers a mobile version of the site that works really well on all kinds of devices.
