As betting on cricket in Australia is perfectly legal and above board there are no issues with opening accounts with online bookmakers. Bookmakers are allowed to freely trade in Australia, meaning there is an open market and plenty of options available for Aussie cricket betting punters.
As a result of this there are plenty of local Aussie bookmakers who cater specially for domestic sporting events, with betting markets for Australians, and priced up in Australian Dollars.
This means that Aussies can freely open as many accounts as they like with different bookmakers and bet on cricket without any of the aggravations that Indian depositors have to endure.
As well as having a list of Australian Bookmakers, I have put together a general list of Non-Australian bookmakers who accept dollars, while below is a selection of Australian Bookmakers and the excellent free bet and deposit bonuses available to cricket betting punters.
