PlayUp’s Odds- 5/5
The site’s odds were found to be around the market average in Australia by our PlayUp review. If we take for example a futures AFL matchup between the Richmond Tigers vs Carlton Blues, we can see odds of:
Richmond Tigers 1.24 Bet $10, get 1.24 X 10 = $12.40
Carlton Blues 4.15 Bet $10, get 4.15 X 10 = $41.50
These odds fall in line with other top bookmakers in the region such as bet365, Unibet and Ladbrokes.
Odds boosts and an odds guarantees are consistently available on the site so be sure to keep a lookout. PlayUp is currently offering 102% markets on Head to Head and Line bets for NBA matchups so be sure to take advantage!

Due to the Interactive Gambling Act in Australia, any form of live betting cannot be conducted online. Punters may, however, phone in their bets on the PlayUp live betting hotline at 1800 888 001. The hotline is open for betting 24/7 and odds for live bets can be viewed online on the website and app. The minimum live telephone bet is $10.
Live streaming is currently not available at the operator, however, this could change as the platform begins to expand.
