Classic Bet Android App Review
As you might expect from a bookmaker that has been in business since 2014, the Classic Bet mobile app is impressive and thoughtfully designed. With its sleek, professional appearance, it is not only visually appealing but also incredibly user-friendly, with easily accessible menus that make choosing a market a breeze.
The colour scheme has been well chosen so that it is striking without straining the eyes on a small smartphone screen and the app is also very reliable, which is incredibly important when betting on the go.
The odds offered by Classic Bet are the same as those offered by its sister site, Madbookie.
On the other hand, the breadth of sports markets on offer through this app is very impressive, with a liquidity within the Australian sports market that is comparable with the biggest Australian bookmakers. Although all of the most popular American codes can be found, the depth of market is much less than that found within domestic sporting markets.
Soccer receives excellent coverage through this app, with leagues all over the world being featured. Tennis is also well provided for as is golf, cycling, surfing, boxing, snooker and motor racing, and this selection should be enough to satisfy the great majority of punters.
Horse racing and greyhound racing are the markets in which Classic Bet truly excels. It has a great range of markets including fixed price, top fluctuation and best tote on greyhounds, harness and thoroughbreds.
First Four, Quadrella, Exacta, Trifecta, Quinella, Win, Place and Each Way wagers being available nearly every race day. There is a form guide on hand for every race and it is even possible to combine sports wagers with racing wagers on one betting slip.
Classic Bet also offers a dedicated site for mobile phone users, classicbet.mobi which is available both on the Android App store and the Apple store, allowing you to bet on the go.
Classic Bet offers very low minimum online wagers, which enables newcomers to bet to easily access the app. Online bets can be placed for as little as $0.50.
There is also a good selection of deposit methods on offer to customers, from traditional options like bank transfers and credit cards to POLi, BPAY, Paysafecard and PayPal.
This should suit the preferences of most punters, although only bank transfers are available as a withdrawal option, which can be disappointing for those who were hoping for one of the faster e-Wallet methods.
Maximum payouts per day are between $10,000 and $50,000, with the maximum daily win limit for horse racing peaking at $10,000.
Overall, the Australian Classic Bet mobile app is professional, impressive and easy to use, as might be expected from this betting expert.
The state of the art betting functionality combined with the thoughtfully designed account management area means that this app is both visually appealing and practical to use on the move.
There is an excellent selection of sports markets to choose from, especially within the domestic Australian market, with horse racing, greyhounds and soccer standing out from the crowd.
While this app is very competitive in the marketplace, it does have some downsides, namely the lack of variety in withdrawal methods and the account management fee which is levied on dormant accounts.
