PuntNow Review

As you may have guessed from my site, I’m a bit of a sports betting enthusiast. I’ve influenced my friends at the pub and I love to share my opinion. My to my friends annoyances. Let’s review PuntNow, a relatively new site that claims to offer the best odds, promotions and customer service in the industry. The question is: Is PuntNow worth your time and money?

TLDR: PuntNow is a decent site for casual bettors, but it lacks some features and options that more serious punters might look for.

What I like about PuntNow

PuntNow is one of the newest sports betting sites in Australia. I’ve been using it for a little bit now and have always been satisfied with their service and offers. Here’s a few of the things that I like about PuntNow:

  • They have a wide range of sports and markets to choose from, including AFL, NRL, cricket, soccer, tennis, golf, and more.
  • They offer competitive odds and generous promotions, such as free bets, cashback, and enhanced odds.
  • They have a user-friendly and secure website and app, which are easy to navigate and place bets on.
  • They have a responsive and helpful customer support team, which is available 24/7 via phone, email, or live chat.
  • They have a fast and convenient payment system, which supports various methods such as credit cards, e-wallets, and bank transfers.

PuntNow is a comparable choice for anyone who enjoys having a bet. They’ve got everything you need to have a fun and profitable betting experience.

What I don’t like about PuntNow

PuntNow is not without its flaws. Weigh these cons up before signing up.

  • I’ve had several issues with my account and withdrawals, and it took me days to get a reply from their support team. In the end the money landed in my account but it took a few extra days.
  • Compared to other sites, PuntNow offers a spectrum of odds on many events and markets. This means that you may get less return on your bets and lose more money in the long run.
  • Sometimes the site can become laggy or freeze. This is especially noticeable during peak times.

These aren’t deal breakers, but it’s definitely worth shopping around when looking for your next betting site.

How to fund your Betfair Wallet

Without money in your wallet, you can’t place any bets or withdraw your winnings. Let’s look at the different options that you can deposit and withdraw money.

Funding Method Min. Amount Max. Amount Processing Time Fees
Credit/Debit Card $10 $10,000 Instant None
Bank Transfer $20 $50,000 1-3 business days None
PayPal $10 $5,000 Instant None
Skrill $10 $5,000 Instant None
Neteller $10 $5,000 Instant None
Paysafecard $10 $1,000 Instant None

Don’t forget, if you fund by credit card you may be blocked by your credit provider or be charged insane cash advance rates.

How does PuntNow compare to other platforms?

PuntNow is one of the newest sports betting platforms in Australia, only launched in 2021. It claims to offer competitive odds, fast payouts, and a user-friendly interface. But how does it stack up against some of the more established platforms in the market? Let’s compare PuntNow with other major platforms: Bet365, Neds, Ladbrokes, Betfair and TAB. I used the following ratings on a scale of 1 to 5:

  • Variety of sports and markets
  • Odds and margins
  • Customer service and support
  • Payment options and security
  • Mobile app and website

Here’s what I came up with:

Platform Variety Odds Service Payment Mobile Total
PuntNow 4 4 3 3 4 18
Bet365 5 4 4 4 5 22
Neds 4 3 3 3 4 17
Ladbrokes 4 3 3 3 4 17
Betfair 5 5 4 4 5 23
TAB 4 3 3 3 3 16

PuntNow isn;t far behind the top performers, but it still has some room for improvement. It offers a good variety of sports and markets with competitive odds and margins, especially for some of the less popular sports.
But it does fall short in terms of customer service and support, which can be slow and unresponsive at times.

PuntNow is a promising platform that has a lot of potential, but it still needs to work on some aspects to catch up with the best in the business. If you are looking for a new platform to try out, PuntNow may be worth a shot, but don’t expect it to blow you away.

What sports can you bet on?

PuntNow offers a wide range of options to place bets on. You’ve got:

  • AFL
  • NRL
  • Cricket
  • Soccer
  • Tennis
  • Rugby
  • Basketball
  • Golf
  • Horse racing

And there’s so many more. There’s darts, snooker, MMA, and e-sports. You’ll get competitive odds and some live betting features.

Security

Security is one of the most important aspects of online sports betting, if the most! PuntNow takes it seriously. PuntNow uses SSL encryption to protect your personal and financial data from hackers and unauthorised access.

PuntNow also complies with the Australian Privacy Principles and the Interactive Gambling Act 2001, which regulates how online gambling operators handle your information. This also helps prevent underage and problem gambling. PuntNow has a strict verification process to ensure that you are who you say you are, and that you are eligible to bet on their platform.

You will need to go through their rigorous KYC process and provide proof of identity, address, and payment method before you can withdraw your winnings.

Most importantly PuntNow also has a responsible gambling policy that allows you to set limits on your deposits, bets, and losses, as well as self-exclude from the site if you feel that you need a break.

The bottom line

PuntNow is a reliable and user-friendly sports betting site that offers a wide range of markets and competitive odds. Whether you are a fan of the Aussie code, or any other sport, you will find something to suit your preferences and budget.

However, as with any form of gambling, you should always bet responsibly and within your means. PuntNow is not responsible for any losses or damages that may result from your gambling activities.
