One of the newest brands to the bookmaking game Neds launched their website in October of 2017. They are licensed in the Northern Territory and aim to deliver the best digital wagering experience on both sport and racing betting.
Based in Brisbane, Neds was founded by Dean Shannon who punters might know as the previous CEO of Ladbrokes Australia. So while they may appear to be a new bookmaker on the scene, punters can have confidence in the knowledge that those running the brand have a great deal of experience in the industry.
Early on Neds had some slight technical problems with their wagering platforms due to getting more traffic than they were expecting which might have turned some punters away. But since then they have settled that issue and appear to be a bookmaker on the rise in Australia.
