Being one of the smaller betting sites in the Australian marketplace ClassicBet have opted to keep things simple within their online betting interface but although it doesn't have all the bells and whistles like so many of the big boys it does offer the punter a smooth betting experience.
The layout itself follows the betting industry standards with the top menu bar allowing quick access to racing and sporting markets along with the current promotions offered with anotehr tab informing of their mobile website and app download. The side bar menu allows fo quick access to the next five racing markets along with seperate tabs for all three racing codes full daily schedule. The following days action is also included with up coming feature events and futures also prominent along with quick access to past results. Within the middle section of the website they clearly display the upcoming and past results of the last four events for all three racing codes while the right hand sidebar gives you all the information you need about upcoming sporting events.
ClassicBet are a little behind the eight ball in this area as they only have a basic thoroughbred guide and both harness and greyhounds have nothing for punters which in this era may well set them back a little.
ClassicBet Mobile App
As the majority of mobile betting apps in this day and age the ClassicBet app is one that has solid functionality and is set out the enable the punter to quickly navigate to any betting market with little effort, again the betting app is a little more basic than the best betting sites around but it no worse than any other on the market in regards placing a wager quickly.
ClassicBet are very good in this area, they are one of the only betting sites that will ring new punters when they open an account and ask if there is any industry specific things that you like or would like, they are very welcoming and quite often if you have not placed a bet for a while they will ring you and offer you a matched deposit bonus to try and get you punting again.
Again another area that ClassicBet really do need to improve if they are to keep building their brand, they do cover most racing products including industry standards best of the best for all three codes and best odds on gallops but ClassicBet have no weekly specials that other bigger online betting sites offer such as money back specials and enhanced odds.
ClassicBet are yet to offer up any competitions that I am aware of but there are many betting sites currently that are steering clear of this are so I wouldn't hold that against them.
ClassicBet Review - Summary
While ClassicBet are missing many of the new industry features regarding weekly specials and stand out features they seem to have all the basics pretty much covered and while they still need to improve to feature prominently within the Australian betting industry they are improving and over time you would hope they would address these issues. Due to the fact that they offer such a huge sign up bonus if you live in an eligible state you would be a fool not to take up the free money as they are a trusted and secure site, you may not bet with them on a regular basis but they will give you another bite at the cherry pretty quickly if you don't bet with them for a while just wait for the nice man to call!!
