Tabcorp employs more than 3000 Australians while its TAB, lottery, Keno, Sky Racing and Sky Sports products serve more than 2.5 million punters every day.

Tabcorp’s thousands of retail outlets have long served the punting public, but online betting is by far the most convenient and efficient way to place a wager with TAB.

No queues to wait in, no fiddly tickets to fill out or dirty touch screens to navigate, just the punter and a few quick clicks/taps on phone, tablet or PC, and your bet is placed.


It is very easy to open a TAB account online to save yourself from needing to travel down to a TAB outlet or your local pub.

In order to sign up for a TAB account, simply follow these steps:

  1. Fill out your personal details – this will only take a couple of minutes.
  2. Deposit funds and you are ready to start betting online with the TAB


Having a bet on the English Premier League with the match taking place overnight? With a TAB online account, if your bet is successful, the money will go straight into your account once the match has been completed. This saves you having to drive down to your nearest TAB agency in order to collect your winnings.

An online account is almost instantaneous.

Your favourite horse or greyhound may be about to race and if you are at a TAB outlet, there may be a person already using the machine to place their bet.

With a TAB online account, you can simply sit back in your seat, or at home, and use your mobile phone to place your wager on your runner. It will only take you a few seconds to place your desired wager compared to placing it via the machine or writing up a ticket.

Time is money after all and you want to save as much time placing your bets as you can, and you also want your winnings to be paid out as quickly as possible. These are the key reasons why betting online with the TAB is the right choice.
