Full PlayUp Bookmaker Review

Playup Review Summary

PlayUp is owned managed and operated from the office in Sydney, so when you bet with PlayUp you know you are betting with an Australian company. Not to mention in good company! With great odds and on-site promotions, this Playup review is coming out with a thumbs up for the fantasy site now offering fixed odds betting.

PlayUp Have the Best Prices?

PlayUp claims to offer the best prices and whilst that is a pretty general claim, and one that can not be substantiated across every sport, and every betting market, when I crossed checked a few markets, they were at least pretty competitive across the best bookmakers in Australia.

Good Prices are Key to Long Term Profit

Best Tote is almost standard these days, but we need to find where PlayUp differentiate to take real advantage

The claim, speaks to me in a way that I would think they are targeting a single sport or market to be best price with, and in time, with a little more use and recording, I would hope to be able to identify where those best prices are and let you know in this PlayUp review.

Racing Sports and Fantasy all on One Site

I think it's pretty cool that we can play fantasy on PlayUp too and the offering is one of the best known and most widely played in Australia. Offering the option on one platform and site is a huge plus if you don't like having multiple, or too many apps on your phone.

Racing - Sports and Fantasy

All available on the same IOS or Android app, less apps more betting opportunities.

With play up available in the App Store for IOS and on Android, [you'll need to download an APK from the site], that single excellent betting app gives you lots of options especially if you are looking for consistently good prices on your sports bets.

Live Betting

Live betting options are available on the supplied telephone betting numbers on the website and app, and cover a whole host of sporting events when they go 'in-play', Unfortunately right now, there is no live streaming offer from PlayUp, but something they are apparently working towards.

Only 10 seconds to answer the Phone

I had to wait only 10 seconds for my phone call to be answered - Super Quick Telephone betting.

Betting Odds

As mentioned, PlayUp claims to provide the best odds, and this is a solid claim in terms of offering best tote odds, but it's not a unique offering as many other bookies do so too. That said, some of the basketball handicap lines found in the promotions section will impress you. Racing odds are updated in real-time, and actually did look really competitive, so if you are looking for a matched betting site to work alongside Betfair, then this may not be the best option - Take a look at others. But if following betting tips, you are going to be getting good odds a lot of the time.

Once Registered You will Find any Available Promotions

PlayUp have impressed our sports betting team

Footy Betting

Excellent coverage of footy betting markets available with 23 different markets including the most popular lines and props for the NRL, and around 20 markets on the AFL as well. These could be expended to include more, but unless you are a real specialist looking for marginal markets, PlayUp have enough covered to keep you happy and mix up your multis

20-25 Different Markets on NRL and AFL Games

The most popular Lines and prop betting markets are covered by PlayUp, with NRL having marginally more than the AFL - Just click on 'More markets' to find the extension to the lines at first view.

Other Sports Betting

It's pretty deep, Tennis Golf and Fighting events are of course covered, whilst if you feel the need to bet on Table Tennis, Volleyball or Netball, you will be equally served with the most popular events and betting markets.

User Experience

OK, this is a real positive area - I really like the simple menus and navigation processes at PlayUp, I found pretty much everything I wanted, with no trouble at all, and being a bit lazy at times {i was looking to see if there was any live streaming], I contacted the live chat.

10/10 - 5 Stars for User Experience

Special mention for super quick telephone response, and immediate live chat responses from PlayUp - AND REAL PEOPLE - not AI

The response was immediate and HUMAN!! Yes!!! It wasn't AI, it was a real person, talking real words, and telling me it was all good! What a breath of fresh air!

And what about this? - I tried the live betting line - 10 second answer time, no hold, no diversion, straight through

Placing a Bet - Bet Slip

Real easy, and clear, simply click on your selection, and it appears in the bet slip with the odds at the time of adding. Any odds changes will be notified if they happen before you confirm - You can continue to add selections and all multi options, double, trebles, etc are displayed with the combined odds, so you know how crazy that multi is getting before you stake it - Cool

Quick and Simple Bet Placement

Setting up a single or a multi could not be easier or clearer with odds and expected return displayed.

Account Management

Registering for an account was quick and easy. There is nothing worse than barrier after barrier to opening a bookie account when all you want to do is register and bet. With PlayUp I would say I was all done and dusted in just a few minutes on mobile. With plenty of depositing options, I could fund my account, find my event and market and get betting pretty quickly. I mean, I was in no rush, and neither should you be, but it is once that it was a straightforward procedure.

Quick Registration Process

Adding personal details and setting up security was quick and easy and I was ready to bet after finding the host of banking options.

Responsible Gambling

Self Exclusion forms are easy to find and accessible and betting limits can be self-placed on your account to keep in control too. The responsible gambling policy is well placed in the footer and has a range of advice to keep your betting under control and links if you believe you have a problem. There have been some associated issues with reports and claim toward the way PlayUp came about, but if you believe you already have a problem with gambling, then I would direct you to the helpline below and encourage you not to click on any of the links on this page or OLBG at all.

Responsible Gambling Options Clearly Marked

Advice for responsible gambling, tools to help and links to get further help are all easily found on the PlayUp App

eSports Betting

The global phenomenon and explosion that is eSports is covered at PlayUp.  In fact, I would go as far as to say that it is one of the widest offerings and most impressive eSports betting coverage I have seen on any sports betting website. Don't believe me? Go check it out, All the main games are covered, as well as matches and leagues.

Fantastic eSports Betting

PlayUp really deliver when it comes to eSports betting with one of the widest ranges of games to bet on.

Everything is good about this bookmaker, only issue is sometimes their payouts are a bit slow, as some other bookies offer payout cards, where this bookie does not.
