This is the Racing Shark’s Ultimate Neds Review, giving you everything from Punting Advice, to Expert Tips!
Neds was released in 2017 and has since added their expertise to the competitive online bookmaker market in Australia.
Another bookmaker derived from the mind of Dean Shannon (Bookmaker.com.au, Ladbrokes.com.au) comes Neds, which struggled to find traction early on, but has quickly caught fire since. Despite the betting platform being released during the busiest period of the year and the website suffering significant problems, punters were rewarded for their loyalty.
It has since established itself as one of the premier bookmakers in Australia.
Neds Review – Features
A big plus for Neds comes in the form of its features. They not only have a great promotions team, that offers customers unique deals daily, but they have everything a punter could want.
Neds, like Sportsbet, have their very own blog that keeps you up to date in all the latest Racing News and Events. Every week there’s a segment called ‘A Week in Review,’ which allows you to have a cheeky gander at how everything is going in Racing.
This is easily one of the most helpful features for punters, as you don’t even have to leave the Neds site to run the stats or crunch the numbers – it’s right at your fingertips, just at the click of a button!
As well as this ‘Week in Review,’ the article has buttons which link you straight to betting markets, making the user interface even easier. One of the article headlines is ‘Punting Tips for the 2YO Magic Milllions’ with a button below that takes you straight to the Magic Millions betting market.
Neds Review – Multi’s
Neds also have an incredible multi builder – with some pretty sizeable odds. More often than not, their odds for Racing are higher than Aussie Favourite, Sportsbet, maybe only minimally, but if you’re creating a multi, this can help substantially.
All the power of the biggest Multi’s are in the palm of your hot little hands with the Neds Multi Builder, a few simple tapes, and swipes across Racing Markets, and you can build multi’s without even leaving the screen.
The site now also offers Same Game Multi’s, another relatively new feature, but one much needed when it comes December time.
Although mostly every Aussie Bookie site has a Same Game Multi Market, they have a different Racing user experience that is oh, so simple to use, on par with the big guns, such as Sportsbet – the creator of the Same Game Multi.
Neds Review – Punters Toolbox
As well as this new addition, Neds have also added the Punters Toolbox, a great new source of betting functions that give users a real edge when they’re on the punt. It’s kind of like The Fold, in Sportsbet, and offers many different options. The most popular, of course, is the price boost.
This is a familiar system used by most bookies, have a fixed-odds bet, and you’ll have the option to hit a Price Boost Button and gain a higher odds dividend.
These boosts are always welcome, and handed out like candy. You can use them across plenty of Racing Singles, and Multi’s, and it gives you the boost you need to really get some value.
The Neds Price Boost works up to stakes of $1000, which is a pretty high limit.
Neds Review – Sports
Neds has a good range of sporting events and live betting platform. Punters, who were with the team from the get-go, knows the struggles they had early on. Some sporting markets weren’t available, and there were limited options.
However, it’s now a comprehensive sporting platform, and although they still focus on horse racing, we’re pleased with the improvement.
Neds Review – Racing
Neds offers Best Tote or Starting Price (SP). It means that punters get the best odds across three totes or the final fixed odds price, whichever is higher. Best Tote Place and Mid Tote Place are also available punters, as well as a comprehensive fixed odds betting platform.
A negative for Neds is its lack of international racing markets and futures betting, but they are getting better at offering these.
Neds Review – Neds App
Neds has an app for Android and iOS users. It comes complete with all the features from the desktop site, and it’s one of the better ones we have seen.
Because the team at Neds has excellent experience in the IT field, they were always going to create a customised app that helps punters in every way.
It’s quick, easy, and punters have enjoyed using the app since its inception.
If you’re looking to have a quick punt on the races – Neds should be your go-to betting site. They have the easiest user interface in these terms, the quickest live punting options, and easily the best odds for races. I wouldn’t use this app for sport, but if you’re looking for an outright racing winner, an each-way bet, a quinella, trifecta, or multi – head to Neds.
• Best punting options for racing, with a wide range of markets, and incredibly easy mobile user interface
• Best odds for racing, and have the ability to put on a tote bet – where your odds will fluctuate after you’ve punted, but only If the odds go upwards, meaning you’ll always get the best odds on your horse
The Profit Prophet has focused his attention on Ballina today, where he is confident on dishing up the Punters’ a few winners!

Neds Review – Customer service
The customer service at Neds is an interesting story. Neds was released just before the 2017 Melbourne Spring Carnival, and the site wasn’t able to handle the influx of people. That put pressure on the customer service team, and they responded in fine fashion.
It was a tough entrance to the market for the customer service team, but they handled thousands of queries with aplomb.
That enabled them to hone in their customer service skills and we happy to report that standards haven’t dropped.
Ultimately, Neds have definitely shaken up the market in a new and exciting way, and if you’re looking for some juicy odds, and an incredibly easy user interface to punt on the racing, Neds is your guy.
Despite a tough beginning in the Australian market, Neds has come through with flying colours.
They remain one of the best forward-thinking bookmakers in Australia, and we can’t see that changing in the foreseeable future.
