Betting on sports with PlayUp provides punters with a few valuable betting products. Perhaps their main selling point is that they offer daily fantasy sports as well as regular betting. Their AFL and NRL betting markets ok, but they don’t offer any same game multi-bet options. The coverage of the NBA is also a highlight but overall they do not offer any unique features that set them apart from the other Australian bookmakers. Below are the main features we found while betting on sports with them.
Live Sports Betting – You can bet live on selected live sporting events via the phone. During our time testing their phone betting we found the calls were answered with minimal waiting time and had no issues with getting the bets on in time. The odds available for PlayUp live betting were competitive with the other betting companies in the market.
NBA H2H & Lines – During the NBA season PlayUp is offering fantastic odds on the NBA this season, with 103% markets on Head to Head and Line bets! This means that most of the time they have the best odds for the two most popular NBA betting markets compared to all the other Australian bookmakers.
PlayUp Sports Blog – Their sports and racing blog provides news and free betting tips for most metropolitan horse racing meetings plus popular sports here in Australia and internationally. The content is limited compared to other bookmakers blogs but there are some solid free tips and analysis available but it does lack some detailed analysis you find elsewhere.
Fantasy Sports – PlayUp also own the DraftStars daily fantasy sports platform which offers the biggest cash prize pools in Australia. They provide fantasy sports betting competitions for horse racing, AFL, NFL, soccer, NBA, golf and cricket. Draftstars offers 4 different types of fantasy sports games to play for each sport which gives you plenty of options.
