About The Company
BlueBet is an Australian-owned bookmaker that was launched in late 2015. The founder and CEO is Michael Sullivan, who is the former Chief Executive of William Hill Australia.
He launched Bluebet to compete with the UK companies muscling in on Australia. Stating “I really believe these big English bookmakers don’t understand what the Australian punter is after and we will be offering a far more personalised service. Back when we started Sportingbet in Australia in 2002, we really gave punters an experience they hadn’t been exposed to before and we will be servicing all punters in the new business whether they bet in $1 or $100,000.”
BlueBet licensing is overseen by the NSW Government and regulated by Racing NSW so they are to be trusted! They operate out the race track at Randwick..
