2018 Neds Review
Below is a comprehensive and honest Neds betting review, including our user experience for sports and racing markets on the Neds.com.au bookmaker site, the history of Neds, and the pros and cons of using the Neds betting website.
This Neds review will be updated through new versions of the site, new offers and unique features that Neds offer.
Who are Neds.com.au?
Ladbrokes former CEO, Dean Shannon has spread hing wings and launched Neds, the newest Australian owned and operated online wagering site.
The website went live in October of 2017 and offers a selection of wagering markets, promotions and bonuses which are ideal for both new and experienced bettors.
Licensed in the Northern Territory, Neds is in the company of Sportsbet and CrownBet in offering Australian bettors a range of international and local sports and racing markets.
Dean Shannon previously operated as Ladbrokes CEO following the corporate bookmakers purchase of his wagering site Bookmaker.com.au for around $22.5 million.
When Shannon initially announced he that he would be launching his own online bookmaker, it was believed the focus would be on lottery betting – similarly to Lottoland. However, Shannon instead chose to go back to his roots and enter the ultra-competitive wagering market by catering to a broader punting audience.
Neds will also cater to bettors in Britain. So good news for the poms there.
Without further ado, here is our Neds betting review.
Neds betting products
Neds have started out on the market with two of the most popular wagering products, a simple multi-builder called “Neds Multi Bulider” and their new Same Game Multi product.

The Neds Same Game Multi product is not the first to market, however they offer a user experience that is very easy to use and having tried it, we found that it is on par with the likes of Sportsbet, who were first to market with their own Same Game Multi Builder.

Neds Review Conclusion
We weren’t totally convinced at the beginning of this Neds betting review, however we’ve come to realize that the boys at Neds aren’t just trying to compete with the big boys, they are also doing their best to create products that are unique to their own brand, that the punters will love.
Dean Shannon certainly has a pedigree in creating great top notch betting products as he did at Ladbrokes, and he’s on his way with doing the same at Neds.
This Neds review gives the new boys two thumbs up. Don’t hesitate to try them out.
