In what has to be what many would consider a refreshing break from the recent trend of foreign betting agencies using their financial weight to gain a foothold in Oz by buying a native betting agency in order to circumvent the necessity of applying for regulatory approval.
These bookies also benefit from an established clientele - but the local Palmer family, long time fixtures on the Sydney and interstate betting rails, launched in August of 2013 their contribution to online wagering in the form of Palmerbet.com.au. Join Here
Licensed by the New South Wales Office of Liquor, Gaming and Racing, Palmerbet.com.au has its operation housed in offices that are located at Canterbury racecourse, just a bit west of the Sydney Central Business District.
This would seem to be a logical business move, given that online wagering would seem to be the wave of the future, a wave that has already come ashore with a vengeance and shows no sign of abating or being threatened by any new innovation on the near or distant horizon.
Palmerbet.com.au will be celebrating its one-year anniversary in August, so it may be premature to declare it equal in influence to some of the older online bookmakers, but many Aussie punters might be gladdened by having management right down the street, rather than in some anonymous northern hemisphere location.
Since the very heart of online wagering is competition of all sorts, punters will certainly appreciate and benefit from another player in the mix.
It is nice to have a local management option for an online bookmaker.
The Palmer family is well regarded for trustworthiness and could be said to have a better than average grasp on the pulse of the typical Australian punter.
At this early juncture, it would appear as though they have made a smooth transition into online wagering and in most probability they should have no trouble being competitive and very adequate for the vast majority of punters. Join Here
