The brainchild of former Ladbrokes CEO Dean Shannon, Neds is comprised by a self-confessed team of “computer nerds, sports enthusiasts, statisticians, bookies and digital wizards” dedicated to enhancing the punting experience.
Boasting a robust sports book, detailed and comprehensive fields for all three racing disciplines and slick, easy-to-use layouts make Neds a legitimate player in the online betting market.
Another strong aspect of the Neds launch is the mobile capabilities, with both Apple and Android catered for. This means no cumbersome wait times and awkward scrolling to find the betting market you’re after.
We took an in-depth look at the newest online bookmaker to see if it stacks up in the already highly-competitive marketplace.
Bookmakers that want to make a splash in the already-congested online realm have to make a strong statement out of the blocks, and that is exactly what Neds did by offering a huge generous matched deposit bonus offer for new customers signing up with the Neds bonus code GETON500. But that is all over now.
As of the 26th May 2019 all free bets, bonus bets, sign up bonus offers, deposit bonuses and promo bonuses are banned Australia wide. As a result of gambling reform known as the National Gambling Framework, no Australian licensed bookmaker is legally allowed to offer any sign up offer, bonus, promo deposit bet bonuses or free bet to Australians. The changes have become known amongst punters as the Bonus Bet Ban.
In November 2018, the federal government announced a Nationwide Gambling Framework for the online gambling industry specifically targeted at licensed Australian bookmakers. The National Consumer Protection for Online Wagering laws are designed to shield minors, gambling addicts and other vulnerable sectors of the community from the various advertising and marketing strategies employed by betting operators.
Yes, the bonus bet ban includes Neds.
In Australia the use of Free Bets has been outlawed. No Australian punter can get any free bet, sign up bonus offer or bet bonus at any Aussie licensed online bookie. Bookmakers are allowed to provide bonuses to punters in the form of cash that have no turnover requirements, are not an inducement to open a new account, and that can be immediately withdrawn.
No Australian bookie is yet to offer real cash bonuses in place of the outlawed free bets.
Neds Bet Boost
Sick of those fixed odds bets being lower than the top tote? Take advantage of Neds bet boost, which can be applied to any fixed odds racing bet. The difference for Neds promotion is it adds to your stake, rather than enhancing the odds you receive. Once your bet is placed the amount you earn on top of your win is separated so you know exactly where you stand.
Neds multi builder
Multi enthusiasts are catered for at Neds with their multi builder page. Never has piecing your weekend multi been any easier. By taking out all the clutter that goes hand-in-hand alongside building a big bet, Neds is making sure their customers spend less time screwing around and more time enjoying watching their investments unfold.
Neds know how important it is to have the in-play markets easily accessible so the company has ensured the feature is ready to go from launch. While some sites are not even offering the service, Neds is making it a priority by listing it as a key betting type on their sidebar.
Using a striking contrast between orange and grey, Neds site is easy on the eye and simple to navigate.
At the home page you have bright and clear options on where to go, rather than landing on a confusing layout which does not specify where you truly are. Racing, sport, Live betting, promotions and the how-to guide are a click of a button away and take you directly to what you want to see.
Once you are in racing for example, you have the option to scroll through all the race meets across all three disciplines throughout the day, and can toggle between showing only thoroughbreds, harness or greyhounds at a time. The site also lets you navigate between days, and even has quick links to events such as the Melbourne Cup for those punters that want to get in early.
Other aspects of the site are easy to find. A bar at the top provides the time, as well as the login section and the cashier facilities, while the bet slip can be accessed on the right hand side once you have made selections.
While other sites have neglected all the markets at launch, Neds has made sure all the Aussie, New Zealand and even the international gallops action are on their servers and ready to bet upon.
Let’s face it, if your using an online bookmaker – especially around spring racing time – you are here for the gallops, and Neds has made their site easy to use and added a number of unique features which stands the online agency out from the crowd.
The racing is displayed in an easy to access format. All the races for the day are able to be scrolled through and countdown times are provided for each event. Once a race has been run and won the first four results are also displayed.
Alongside this is the bet boost feature, detailed race predictions are provided, market fluctuations, a money tracker feature that shows you were punters have been leaning as well as a feature betting section which shows where the big dollar bets have gone.
Sports betting is as Australian as a bunnings sausage sizzle and this is something Neds has obviously put a premium on. There are a ton of markets at Neds punters can get stuck right in to, including, but not limited to: AFL, rugby league and union, baseball, American football, cricket, tennis, esports and many more.
Like the racing side of the site, the sports section is easy to navigate and has quick links to all the big events, including the NBA, MLB and all the upcoming big name sports.
Neds provides daily promotions on sporting events, as well as live betting on sports that have already kicked off. A quick call to 134 777 between 7am and 11pm Australian time will allow you to take advantage of this.
Other sites have dropped the ball in this regard in the past but Neds has ensured that its opening will be a successful one for people on the go.
Both Android and Apple users are catered for given they can both download the Neds app, but those not wishing to use the application can access the site via their mobile phone browser, which is far less cumbersome to visit when compared to other bookmakers.
Depositing and withdrawing is easy on the phone too, which means you do not have to jump on your PC or laptop to get funds in your account. Just jump straight on the app and away you go. It is a nice touch for those who are hard up for time.
Neds offers Australians numerous choices when it getting funds into your account to get your punt on.
Those of you who have consternation about your details being at risk never fear, Neds uses the latest encryption technology to ensure you funds are in safe hands.
Neds offers punters instant deposit methods by way credit and debit cards, such as Visa and MasterCard, as well as POLi. You can also make a deposit via BPay or bank transfers but these transactions can take up to three days to clear. The minimum Neds deposit is $5 for the majority methods.
Making a withdrawal can take longer to process depending on the method you use. Typically you should have your funds in your bank account within 48 hours of making the withdrawal.
Neds is an Australian based company which means their customer support team operates to the country’s time.
Priding itself on operating customer service 365 days a year, phone lines are open from 7am through to 11pm for all your questions and queries in regards to the company, and the live betting lines operate on the same time. The customer service number is 1300 006 337.
Neds also has a live-chat option, an email to send your questions through to as well as a comprehensive FAQ section for any inquires you might have outside the specified hours.
We have seen online bookmakers come and go throughout the years and Neds looks like one that will have a lengthy stay in the Australian market.
The company has learnt from the mistakes of bookies gone by in ensuring all facets that they need to cover are good-to-go at launch. Their markets are comprehensive, they offer live betting, bonuses as well as services other bookies would be envious of.
We are expecting Neds to take Australia by storm and cement itself as a legitimate player in the online betting realm.
