TABtouch Sportsbook Review
TABtouch is another of the Australian bookmakers that have popped up to try to take advantage of a punters disgruntled with the current status quo, one of the first and most prominent. Ensuring that they deliver what the Aussie’s want, they’re particularly focused on the biggest and most popular sports in the country, and they’re already dominating the market with over 300 betting shops across the country. The same can be said for their online offering, with thousands punting with them on a regular basis. US and UK customers aren’t currently allowed to create an account with TABtouch.
TABtouch has a decent range of sports for customers to have a flutter on, with Surfing, Rugby, Aussie Rules, and Football to make a few of many. A huge amount of E Sports are available on the site, such as COD, Counter Strike, League of Legends and more – if you like many other enjoy E Sports then TABtouch definitely doesn’t disappoint in this respect. Probably the biggest gambling sport in Australia, Horse Racing, even has its own dedicated section for you to explore the action, and not only features national racing, but also all the international races from around the world. Within each specific sport, its easy to navigate by country, league and event, with a very reasonable level of depth and variety to the specific betting markets on each game. As you move to lower leagues and more obscure sports, there’s less depth, reflecting the lower number of people betting on the outcome of these. You can place Singles and Accumulator bets with a huge number of selections, so if you like betting small stakes with the opportunity to win big, then this is the way to go. TABtouch doesn’t current offer any form of sing up promotion for new customers to get extra for their initial deposit, which is a shame as this can be a real pull for punters to move to a new bookmaker for their betting experience. They do however offer some weekly promotions on specific events for the regulars
Live betting through the TABtouch website, like all the other Australian licensed bookmakers, isn’t available online. Odds are shown however, and in order to place a bet you need to call up a dedicated telephone number to quickly connect with a TABtouch operator and whack on your chosen bet.
Currently there isn’t any online or live casino play available on the TABtouch platform, but hopefully this can be something the bookmaker incorporates in the future.
Usability of the Site
TABtouch has modern graphics, distinctive branding and a clear and concise format applied to the entirety of its site. Customers can enjoy intuitive and logical navigation with a big focus on horse racing when first entering the sportsbook. Top level toolbar and drop down menus can ensure if you’re looking for a specific event or race, you can find and place your bets in no time at all. Customers each have their own dedicated account area for reviewing all sports bets and transactions, and if you have any further queries or issues, you can utilise either Live Chat, Email or Telephone services to quickly get any problems resolved. For Deposits and Withdrawals, you can use Visa, MasterCard and PayPal, unfortunately the popular E Wallets aren’t currently available with the bookmaker. The bookie also has an IOS and Android app available, and the site is fully mobile friendly.
In conclusion, TABtouch is one of the most established bookmakers in Australia, and this shows through its seamless website, competitive odds and large sports offering. The site gives customers value, but it would be positive to see the Promotions expanded for both new and existing customers, as this area of the site is pretty thin on the ground compared to some of the newer bookmakers opening up. Daily Price Boosts and Loyalty based promotions would also add a further element to the mix.
