- Too Much Info For New Punters
TabTouch is the wagering arm of Racing And Wagering WA (RWWA) and as such, they are a very popular and sharp betting website that is highly recommended.
Down below is a comprehensive review of TabTouch as in why they are popular, why they are well liked and what they can improve on.
Why Are TabTouch Popular
They have plenty going for them, starting with the Fixed Odds prices, which can be market leader in certain aspects for both racing and sport. Betting websites, they need to have competitive odds and with TabTouch, they have outstanding prices on offer and are very enticing to new customers.
Given they are under the TAB banner, they have access to Sky Racing and have live vision for all the meetings covered by the TAB, as well as replays for all races, which is a big tick and makes them very appealing given race replays are crucial when it comes to doing the form and finding winners.
With it being the TAB, you can place bets at a Pub/Club/TAB agency, and with that, should you have a winner, TabTouch has ‘Scan My Bet’, where you can scan your winning ticket and then deposit it into your TabTouch account.
Why We Like TabTouch
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.
The website, in terms of online bookies, is pretty sharp. They have upcoming racing and sport events on the home page, with markets on those being just a click away, and everything else is in the left hand side of the home page, also just a click away.
They have very good promotions relative to other betting websites. Given it is a WA based website. the promotions are focused on that area, but they are still very good and different compared to what the big boys like TAB and Sportsbet offer.
Why We Don’t Like TabTouch
The information in terms of racing form is good…but for new customers, it can be too much and overbearing and a puzzle to sort out. For experienced punters, there is no such thing as too much info, but for novice punters and those starting out, it can be very confusing.
Whilst they do have the live streaming courtesy of Sky Racing, with the way the agreement is, there is no streaming available for Victorian racing, which can be quite frustrating, especially during the Carnival time.
The lack of withdrawal options is disappointing. Whilst the Withdrawal times are pretty good, the fact that there is only one option to withdraw, Bank Transfer, is disappointing. They aren’t a major bookie, but still, only having one option is pretty poor. Surely they could add more given they have several options to deposit.
6 Reasons To Bet With TabTouch
1. Sky Racing Streaming/Replays
Being able to watch and bet at the same place and not having to flick through between sites is a big tick. They don’t have vision of all the racing, with Victorian racing excluded, but it’s pretty good relative to other websites.
2. Deposit Options
Some of these new betting websites are quite limited when it comes to deposit options but that is not the case with TabTouch, who have several deposit options of Visa, Mastercard, PayPal, as well as Google and Apple Play.
3. Easy Verification
With some betting websites, it can be quite frustrating trying to sign up and verify your account but TabTouch is the complete opposite, with 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.
A betting website that has a blackbook service is a big tick and TabTouch indeed has a blackbook service. For customers, it is free to use and you can add whatever you like, whether it be horse or hound. Once it is in, you’ll get notified when it is accepted to run.
5. Protest Payout
First past the post payout as well as protest payout, paying out on both as winners, is a big tick for TabTouch. Whilst terms and conditions do apply, a new website having this as a product is a definite positive.
Whilst they don’t have the promotions to match the likes of TAB and Sportsbet, they stack up really well when it comes to other betting websites, certainly enough to entice new customers to bet with them.
