Australian customers will find this bookmaker an absolute treat, though customers from elsewhere in the world have no reason to not be equally as impressed by this relatively young bookmaker.
Luxbet are among Australia's newest online bookmakers, but come with the huge backing of the Tabcorp brand and as such have raised the bar in the Australian market since launching in 2008. Luxbet have a reputation for being among the very best in the Australian market, with excellent Australian racing odds and Australian Cricket and Rugby margins.
Luxbet provides a competitive $100 AUD welcome bonus as well as a number of other very highly valued promotions, especially their weekly bonus bet promotions. However, Luxbet took the decision in December 2010 to restrict bonus offers to Australian customers only.
Luxbet is also regarded as having one of the best customer service teams in the Australian market, and their website has a great sense of identity in which you may quickly find a home. Australian racing fans may find this bookmaker a must, often providing the best price around on a daily basis.
