It is quick and easy to install the Madbookie App to your mobile device. Simply visit the Madbookie website Madbookie mobile and create an account to ensure you claim your bonus bets. Follow these simple steps:
This app is compatible with the majority of Android smartphones and tablets.
The Madbookie app concentrates very much on the local Australian market, focusing on Australian Dollar only accounts and only English language support available. Wagers can only be accepted on sports bets from residents of New Zealand and Australia and withdrawals and deposits are challenging for anyone without an Australian bank account, making this app pretty much Australians only.
The Madbookie Android app has a simple and intuitive design with a well laid out interface. Ideal for beginners to online betting, it makes it very easy to find and choose a market and to place the bet of your choice. The app is quick to load and is very reliable to use, which is always important when placing bets on the move. The selection of sports markets, while being more limited than that on offer from Australia’s biggest bookmakers, is suited to the needs of most punters and especially those who prefer to concentrate on Australian sporting codes since overseas sports are not as well represented. There are more than 20 markets available on every NRL and AFL fixture, however conversely, when it comes to major American codes, overseas football and tennis, only around 3 markets are available to choose from.
There is a good choice of horse racing products available through the Madbookie app covering venues across New Zealand, Australia, France, South Africa, Ireland and England. Harness racing and greyhound racing is also covered across New Zealand and Australia with fixed odds betting being available for every racing type in the domestic market. Both greyhound and harness racing have a choice of the following wagers: First Four, Trifecta, Exacta, Quinella, Each Way, Win and Place, while on horse racing Quadrellas are an additional option. Unfortunately, punters in Australia are unable to participate in live sports betting due to current gambling legislation which is in place, and therefore any live bets have to be placed by telephone rather than via the mobile app.
Customer service is always an important aspect to consider, and Madbookie have taken this element of their service very seriously offering a choice of methods by which the support team can be contacted to address queries and other issues. With telephone, email and online chat options available, the support team are fast and friendly, responding to problems in a professional and efficient manner.
One of the major drawbacks associated with the Madbookie app is the limited methods available for depositing and withdrawing funds. While the best bookmakers make it very simple to place funds into an account via both traditional methods and contemporary online e-Wallets, Madbookie only give punters the option of using credit cards, bank transfers or POLi to deposit money and bank transfer is the only available withdrawal option. This creates problems for citizens of New Zealand who wish to use this app as anyone who does not hold an Australian bank account will not be able to easily access their winnings. Minimum deposit amounts, however, are very low at just $1 and as the minimum wager amount also stands at $1 this makes Madbookie a great choice for both casual and novice punters who do not want to deposit or wager large sums. Customers who would prefer the use of a credit facility will be pleased to discover that Madbookie does offer credit on application.
Overall, the Madbookie app is working hard at carving its niche in a competitive marketplace alongside bigger domestic offerings and the many large foreign-owned bookmakers that are now becoming licensed in Australia. This bookmaker’s big strength lies in its focus on the Australian market, with its great range of Australian sporting and racing markets and its excellent, speedy and professional customer service. With its highly intuitive and easy to use betting interface, it is simple to find and select the market of your choice and the low minimum deposits and wager amounts make this a great app for beginners. On the other hand, punters who prefer to bet on overseas sports will no doubt prefer to look elsewhere as these markets are very limited with this app. Also, those who prefer to use e-Wallet payment methods will be disappointed by the lack of variety on offer here.
