Luxbet is Tabcorp's NT Bookie operation and is great for anyone hesitant about dealing with bookies as it is owned by Tabcorp who also own the NSW and VIC TABs. So if you have never dealt with an online bookie before and are not sure where to start, we suggest you try Luxbet. Not only do they have a great new win betting product where you get paid on all Australian gallops races the Best of the 3 Totes or SP if better, they also have the following great deposit bonus offer:
Just when other bookies are reducing the size of their first deposit bonuses, Luxbet is committed to its market leading $500 First Deposit Bonus - and this Spring it has increased the maximum bonus bet to $700. This is a 100% deposit matching bonus for new account holders (excluding VIC and SA) meaning you can, for example, deposit $25 (the minimum) to get a $25 bonus and bet with $50, deposit $100 to get a $100 bonus and bet with $200 or deposit $500 to get a $500 bonus and bet with $1,000.

Luxbet have one of the best Best Tote products available as they guarantee to pay not just Best Tote but they will match the Top Fluctuation from the bookie ring if it is higher than Best Tote. Not surprisingly Luxbet call this product Best of the Best. Note it is even better than Best Tote / Starting Price (SP) as the top fluc is nearly always better than the SP (and can never be less) - you will however have to bet at least 30 minutes before the race jumps and this only applies on Saturday metropolitan races.
If you want the flexibility of betting right up to jump time you can get best of the 3 totes and SP with LuxDiv (which is still better than plain old best tote). When first released, LuxDiv was only available on metropolitan meetings but from 9 October 2012 LuxDiv Win was expanded to cover all Australian gallops meetings - that's right, best tote/SP on all races every day of the week. More details on this and other Luxbet products are as follows:

Tabcorp manages leading customer brands in Australia, including TAB, Tabaret, Keno and TAB Sportsbet, serving millions of customers every day (it also used to manage the Star City and Jupiters casinos before they were split off as a separate entity). Tabcorp was listed on the ASX in August 1994 to acquire the wagering and gaming businesses of the former Victorian TAB. In 1999 Tabcorp acquired the Star City hotel and casino complex in Sydney and in 2003 merged with Jupiters, the owner of hotel and casino complexes in Brisbane, Gold Coast and Townsville. In 2004 Tabcorp completed the acquisition of the NSW TAB.
Tabcorp's Luxbet NT bookie operation commenced in October 2008 signaling Tabcorp's desire to compete in the fast growing corporate bookie market and fill a gap in its fixed odds betting business where it did not currently have the full product offering. Wagering Managing Director Robert Nason said "Tabcorp is Australia’s leading gambling entertainment company and it is only natural for us to be represented in a market where there is significant commercial activity and growth".
Tabcorp claims Luxbet offers products that Tabcorp has previously been unable to offer because of regulatory restrictions (like betting on elections, entertainment events and fixed odds betting up to the jump on all races). Tabcorp also claims Luxbet is market competitive in terms of the prices offered to customers and its preparedness to take on larger transactions and will bet fixed odds on more thoroughbred races than any other corporate bookie.
After four years of operation, Luxbet revamped their web site in late September 2012 to give it a more modern feel and to emphasize the "backed by Tabcorp" theme.
