The ever growing betting landscape in Australia includes BetFlux, a Victorian based bookie that have years of experience behind them, establishing themselves as one of the better up and comers.
Down below is a comprehensive review of BetFlux and what they do well, what they can do better and why punters are gravitating towards them.
Why Are BetFlux Popular
They have BetFlux TV, where they live stream race meetings, some, from overseas, those meetings that aren’t covered by the TAB, so if you are a punter that likes to bet out wide and being able to watch/bet at the same website, then BetFlux is ideal for you.
Whilst terms and conditions do apply. they do offer first past the post payout as well as the official winner should there be a successful protest. This product is a must for every bookie and surprisingly, some bookies don’t offer it and it sets them back, so CrossBet is a bookie to look at if you are a punter looking to try out a new bookie.
Their racing coverage, in terms of new bookmakers, is as good as there is available. They have expert tips on selected Australian race meetings, as well as extensive form guides and speed maps, and most professional punters will tell you that a speed map is the most important factor in determining the winner.
Why We Like BetFlux
Live streaming is an important component for betting websites and although they don’t have sport streaming, they do have racing streaming. Being able to bet and watch races at the same place is such an advantage for them given some of the other new betting websites don’t have streaming available.
Waiting for a withdrawal to be accepted/processed can be a frustrating process but that is not the case with BetFlux, who process withdrawals on a daily basis, ensuring punters get their winnings the same day, if the withdrawal request is done at a certain time. Getting winnings the same day and not waiting is a big tick.
The promotions are a bit left field but are pretty good. They focus mainly on racing, but they do have Same Game Multis available for all the key sports, such as the NRL, AFL and NBA, with promotions around that type of bet available. You’ll need to login and check the website.
Why We Don’t Like BetFlux
A popular product for punters is the Cash Out option on bets. Unfortunately, BetFlux don’t have that available to them, which is the case with most new bookmakers, so if they want to separate themselves from the vast majority, they should be doing everything they can to offer this as a betting product.
Their customer service is pretty poor. They only have live chat as a form of customer service, and they say on the website it can take a while them to respond. Given the low level of quality of their service, as a whole, it’s no shock that the customer service is where it is in terms of quality.
They are quite limited when it comes to banking options, whether it be Depositing or Withdrawing. There is only a couple of deposit options, all of them being the stock standard, while with withdrawing, there is only one option. Both aspects need more expansive options in order to grow their business.
6 Reasons To Bet With BetFlux
1. Racing Form/Tips
Having expert race tips, extensive form and speed maps on selected Australian race meetings is as good as you’ll see for a new betting website, giving punters a stack of key info in order to find a winner.
2. Easy Sign Up/Verification
With some betting websites, it can be quite frustrating trying to sign up and verify your account but thankfully with BetFlux, the process only takes minutes and it’s a simple one. No jumping through hoops, just a simple way of doing and before you know it, you’re up and running.
3. Live Streaming
Being able to stream racing is a big tick for them being a new website, especially the obscure international meetings across all three codes. Being able to bet and watch at the same place is a major drawcard.
4. Racing Markets
Whilst the Fixed Odds side of things could improve, the prices they put up are very competitive relative to their new rivals, not cuddling and not copy/pasting from the bigger betting agencies like TAB and Sportsbet.
5. Protest Payout
First past the post payout as well as protest payout, paying out on both as winners, is a big tick for CrossBet. Whilst terms and conditions do apply, a new website having this as a product is a definite positive.
6. Good Website
The graphics can take getting used to, but it’s a simple and easy website to use. Everything you are looking for is on the left hand side of the home page, whether it be racing of sport, along with queries regarding BetFlux and what they are about, what is on offer and so on.
