Country NSW bookmaker, TexBet Launches Online Brand with BetMakers.

BetMakers online wagering platform footprint continues to grow with the launch and early success of TexBet, an online bookie from country NSW.

Terry and son Wade O’Shea have been bookmaking the country and provincial racing circuit of NSW for decades and in 2020 decided to take the leap and build out the online and digital arm of their business.

Terry, or ‘Tex’ has said that the shift online has enabled him to take bets on thousands of racing and sporting events around the globe each week, while still focusing on his passion, NSW racing. Tex’s brand, TexBet.com.au is aiming to become a tailored service for all punters who value having a relationship with their bookie – Bet local. Bet with Tex.

We have developed a model which incorporates the country Local Bookie with an online community throughout Australia – it has categorically revolutionised our business and significantly improved our service to our loyal Texan’s,” says Wade O’Shea, Founder and CEO of TexBet.

“As an accessible online digital technology service, the experienced team at BetMakers have been quick to pass on crucial domain knowledge that has led to rapid growth in our business over the winter months and into the spring.”

“2020 has sure thrown up some challenges and our bookmaking business, like many others, has had to pivot somewhat. We are thrilled to be in a position to attack the 2020 Spring Racing Carnival, our first in the online space while continuing to build on our relationships at racetracks all around the country”, Wade added.
