Australians have always had a keen interest in gambling and sports betting.
Apparently, this is due to the fact that the initial core of colonists who tamed the country long ago came from England.
For a long time, the government fought illegal betting and the local population's abiding proclivity for gambling until the mid-90s, when it legalized Bookmakers in Australia.

Most of the sports markets are quite specific and popular only within the country.
Therefore, not all the major bookmakers can offer a decent selection of sports betting events to Australian punters.
A law regulating online betting on bookmaker websites has been in place since 2001.
Currently, online betting accounts for up to 70% of all betting in Australia.
Both local and International Online Bookies with mobile apps are in high demand.
Despite the fact that the entire population of this vast territory is comparable to that of one of the world's largest metropolitan cities, about 1/3 of Australia's total adult population participates in betting with bookmakers!
And the annual cash flow from betting amounts to several tens of billions of local dollars.
The main sports markets in Australia are Horse Racing, Cricket, the National Rugby League (NRL), and the AFL.
There is also a demand for betting on Political Events taking place both within the country and abroad.
