Please include your UserID number as a reference on any bank transfer.
- BPAY – Facilities are available for BPAY transactions and BBet’s Biller Code is 189498. You can find your BPAY reference number when you click the “Deposit Button” and select the BPAY Tab. As seen above you need to notify us of this payment.

How do I get paid?
Credit card clients must return the equal amount of their credit card deposits previously paid into their BBet Account back to the same credit card, however, they may elect to have winnings surplus to those credit card deposits lodged to their own bank accounts.
What happens if one of the horses I back is scratched?
If you have backed a runner for a Win, Place or Each-Way prior to the final acceptance time, your bet is lost. If the bet was placed after final acceptance time your bet will be refunded but deductions may be applied to remaining live bets. If you have backed a scratching in a double, your money is lost if the bet was placed prior to both legs being at final acceptance stage. If the bet was placed after both legs were at final acceptance stage then your stake will be wagered on the remaining live leg, but deductions may be applied to remaining live doubles. Similar rules apply to Multis.
What sporting events can I bet on?
The selection of sporting events (and the forms of betting applicable) upon which BBet offers markets, is limited to any or all of those events prescribed by the Canterbury Park Racecourse, King Street Canyerbury NSW 2193. Sections 18 and 20 of the Racing Administration Act 1998 define the approved events and forms of betting.

Where are you located?
As NSW law requires that we must accept bets on a licensed racecourse only, we have established an office at the Canterbury Park Racecourse, King Street Canterbury NSW 2193. Unfortunately as our building is not classified as a betting auditorium by the NSW government we cannot accept bets face-to-face (they must be placed via the internet).
Forgotten your password or ID?
If you have forgotten your password, you can simply click on the Forgotten Password link under the login box and follow the steps to retrieve your password which will in turn be sent to your nominated email address. If you have forgotten your ID number as well, you will need to contact BBet and satisfy certain security measures before we can supply your number. Email us or call us on 0498 001 550 if you require assistance in retrieving your lost details.
Can I change my password or other personal or credit card details?
If you wish to change your password you will need to contact BBet and satisfy certain security measures before the changes are activated and the relevant account can be accessed. For changes to any personal details, once logged on, you can click on “Edit Account” under the “My Account” menu. Any changes are recorded by BBet prior to acceptance. Any changes to credit card details can be completed by going clicking the “Deposit” button on the toolbar, then selecting ‘Credit Card Deposit’, recording the new card details and submitting the changes.
Why won’t the system allow me to bet after I have logged in?
If the system allows you to log in, but asks you to log in again when you attempt to place bets, it is probable that your computer does not ‘allow cookies’. You must allow cookies in your browser to use the BBet site.
