NEDS BETTING REVIEW: $500.00 BONUS BET
It seems at times as though choices are diminishing as companies decide that combining is better than competing, so when a new bookmaker named Neds appeared on the scene, it was something we figured deserved a closer look.
Neds is an Australian owned online bookmaker that is the creation of Dean Shannon. Some may recall Shannon as the entrepreneurial force behind Bookmaker.com.au, an Aussie wagering agency that would eventually be swallowed, for better or worse, depending on your point of view, by Ladbrokes.
Neds went live in early October of 2017. The timing might seem slightly odd. They missed out on a chance to take in revenue from the finals of the AFL and the NRL. On the other hand, they did show for Spring thoroughbred racing, just in time for the Caulfield Cup, the Cox Plate, and the Melbourne Cup, along with all the other Group races that make October and November especially exciting times for racing punters.
From several visits to the Neds website, it seems as though they were in the planning and development stages for some time and did not rush to light up a website that was ill prepared to take on the major corporate operations.
That said, it is hard to evaluate Neds with complete objectivity, because until they have some time to establish a reputation and back their claims, there is no history on which to rely.
Given the intense scrutiny to which the Australian Governments subject online bookies, however, combined with Mr. Shannon's experience and reputation, it would seem that punter funds are safe with Neds and that Neds will deliver on any promises.
Here, then, is a brief look at Australia's newest entrant into the crowded setting of online bookmaking and hopefully some initial guidance to anybody interested in a membership with an online bookmaker.
