OKEBET was formed as a result of a partnership between Norm and Gary Oke, a father and son bookmaker duo. Norm Oke was licensed as a bookmaker in Victoria in 1998 and caters to Victoria’s city and country races. On the other hand, Gary Oke has been licensed since 2014 and caters to Victorian and interstate race meetings.
It was his tech savviness that led to their transition into the online betting industry. In March 2022, the duo launched their online product by the name of OKEBET, to provide punters with an online platform for placing bets on sports and racing.
OKEBET features an efficient website with an easy-to-navigate interface via its racing and sports tab. The site design is standard, with three panels, while the main menu is on the left. The site also offers direct links to its promotions section, which is hard to miss, thanks to the well-designed layout powered by BetMakers.
The site also features horse race streaming, with the coverage provided by OKEBET TV. A live racing ticker at the top of the screen shows a countdown clock for the upcoming race features and can also be arranged into different race categories.
OKEBET also has an app available for Android and iOS devices. Like the site, the app is also easy to use, with clearly marked buttons at the screen’s bottom for navigation to home, your account, bet slip, and sports and racing categories.
OKEBET Site Features
As mentioned earlier, the key focus at OKEBET is racing, which includes thoroughbred, harness, and greyhound racing. The platform offers a solid range of markets despite being relatively new in the industry.
If you are interested in betting on racing features, you have a wide range of options, including international and local meetings for thoroughbred, harness, and greyhound racing.
For sports betting, OKEBET offers fewer choices than other operators in the market. However, the featured variety is pretty decent, and you can bet on almost all major sporting events or leagues. The markets for most of the events are somewhat limited, however. While bigger sportsbooks feature hundreds of betting markets for a major league or competition, OKEBET offers around 20 to 30 betting markets only.
The sports betting options include American football, basketball, boxing, football, AFL, cricket, rugby league and rugby union, tennis, etc.
OKEBET offers a Best Tote product, an interesting feature that guarantees bettors the best odds from totes on all Australian races daily. The platform has also recently launched a feature, Same Race Multi Product, allowing punters to select multiple outcomes in a particular race, increasing their odds.
OKEBET also offers its registered users multiple promotional offers. However, to access the details of these promotions, you must be a registered user at the site, for which the age requirement is at least 18 years. Once you have opened an account with OKEBET, you can easily log in and get details on the latest offers and promotions.
OKEBET Payment methods
OKEBET features a wide range of payment methods to facilitate customers. You can use direct online transfer, Visa or MasterCard, POLI, PayID, or Osko to make payments. The minimum deposit requirement is $5, while the minimum withdrawal limit is $10.
