The name Palmer has been synonymous in racing and betting circles in Sydney for more than three decades and, after following in the footsteps of their grandfather Ted, brothers Grant, Matt and Adrian Palmer are now among the biggest on course bookmakers in the Harbour City.

But, with the movement away from the traditional on-course betting format, the decision to start providing an online bookmaker service was always inevitable.

The Aussie-owned website was first launched in August 2013, however it wasn’t until 2015 when ‘Palmerbet’ launched into the spotlight following a comprehensive advertising campaign which targeted punters outside of the Sydney area.

But just what makes Palmerbet worth betting with for greyhound racing fans? What can they offer that sets them apart from all the other online bookies offering betting on the dishlickers?

Get your matched bet bonus up to $250

Palmerbet have a sensational sign-up bonus for those looking to open a new account upon making their initial deposit.

To get started, head over to now and follow the short process to create your betting account by following the prompts.

Once you have created your account, readers of Australian Racing Greyhound are able to claim a 100 per cent matched bet bonus up to the value of $250. This effectively doubles your money, prior to even placing your first bet, giving you up to $500 to start having a flutter with.

There are conditions when claiming the free bet bonus, with customers from certain states excluded due to legislation.

Make sure you read the terms and conditions on Palmerbet’s website prior to attempting to claim your bonus to prevent yourself missing out.

Market odds and bet types for greyhound racing

Palmerbet offers fixed odds betting for all Australian and New Zealand greyhound events, allowing punters to secure a price which is guaranteed not to fluctuate once your money has been wagered.

Alternatively, punters can also bet using the ‘tote’ which is based on the pari-mutuel market, meaning the odds for each greyhound can firm and drift depending on the size of the betting pool and how much money is wagered on each dog. Palmerbet pays out according to the middle tote which means you will receive the odds at jump time which are the second highest of the three Australian totes.

When betting on the greyhounds with Palmerbet, punters have a variety of options such as win and place as well as the traditional exotics – quinella, exacta, trifecta and first four.

Additionally, Palmerbet is unique in that it also provides some interesting alternative markets such as odds vs. even – i.e placing a bet that the winner of the race will salute wearing an odd number rug (1,3,5 or 7) or even (2,4,6 or 8).

You can also bet on inside (boxes 1-4) vs. outside (boxes 5-8), bookends (1 and 8) vs. field (boxes 2-7) and favourite (shortest price runner) vs. the field (remaining greyhounds).

Deposit and withdrawal options at Palmerbet

Palmerbet have ensured there is a way for everyone to deposit cash into their betting accounts, with a wide range of options for punters.

The most common method is via your Visa or MasterCard, with funds appearing instantly in your account. You can also choose to use an e-wallet, such as POLi, or via BPAY or bank transfer. It is important to keep in mind that methods such as bank transfer and BPAY can take up to 24 hours to reach your betting account depending on what time of the day you make your deposit.

When it comes to withdrawing winnings from your Palmerbet account, the simplest way is via an electronic funds transfer. This method will see the cash appear in your designated Australian bank or credit union account within two working days.

Mobile betting with Palmerbet

In addition to betting with Palmerbet on your laptop of PC, the online bookie has also developed an app to make betting on your mobile phone or tablet device simple, fast and efficient.

If you don’t wish to download the app, but still want to have a bet on the go, Palmerbet also offers betting through its mobile website which can be accessed through your phone’s web browser.

The mobile site is essentially the same as the app, albeit slightly slower, with the range of betting options and security standards the same for both.

Customer security

With the world of online bookies booming, it can be hard to know who to trust when it comes to wagering with your hard-earned coin.

Australian Racing Greyhound wants to ensure our readers are only betting with the most reputable and respected online bookmakers.

Palmerbet is a secure betting site featuring the highest standards of encryption software to guarantee your personal and banking details are secure at all times.

If you still don’t feel 100 per cent comfortable, perhaps consider using an e-wallet service to deposit funds into your account which means your financial details are not shared with the bookmaker directly.

Support for greyhound racing customers

Palmerbet have a dedicated customer support system which can be accessed by phone, email or snail mail.

Customer service representatives are available for assistance between 8am and 6om Monday through to Saturday.

Get betting now with your matched bet bonus of up to $250.
