HOT Bet
  • Hot Bets are tips from punters who have agreed to share their betting information with others. All Hot Bets are accompanied by results and profit statistics for the punter’s tipping history and success rate.
  • The Hot Bet platform is provided by TheGreatTipOff.com (“the GTO”). Since 2009 the GTO has captured the tips and best bets of Australia’s most reputable form analysts, professional punters and everyday punters.
  • TheGreatTipOff.com is recognised as a trusted resource for tipping statistics in the Australian racing industry and is referenced by Australia's racing broadcasters and commentators. See more here .
  • Hot Bet tips are sourced from the GTO. Tips are entered at the site by Punters and form analysts. Selections from other tipsters are sourced from resources available in the public domain including websites and social media.
  • The best performing tipsters amongst those with tips in the race will appear as HOT Bets. Tipsters include casual punters, professional punters and recognised form analysts.
  • All performance statistics appearing in HOT Bet advertisements are calculated based on the best tote price available for winning bets. It does not consider the price at the time of the tip or when the bet was placed. For example, if a tip was provided when fixed odds of $8 were available but the horse wins and pays $6.50 as the best tote dividend, results are calculated using the $6.50 price. All statistics and prices showing on HOT Bet ads are updated overnight.
  • When placing a HOT Bet you may have multiple bet types to choose from including Fixed Odds or a tote derivative product. The selected product (e.g. fixed odds) will be used to calculate your return (like any other bet). For example, you may choose fixed odds and your bet be placed at $10. The runner may pay $11.50 at best tote, but your bet will be paid at $10 (subject to normal fixed odds deductions).
  • The price you get may differ from what is shown on a HOT Bet results page as these are calculated from best tote, which may differ from a product visible to you.
  • Note that products offered to you for the purposes of placing a HOT Bet will be the same as the products available to you for normal betting activity.
  • Every effort is made to ensure the reliability of tip data provided. Where information is sourced from a third party, we are unable to confirm the validity. On rare occasions this can result in an incorrect tip being provided.
  • Tipster profiles are moderated for content including offensive names and/or images. However, as this is a manual process, slang terms or code may not always be picked up. If you find any content to be offensive, please let us know as soon as possible
  • All Hot Bets require a minimum stake of $10. SporstBetting.com.au reserves the right to revise this minimum level from time-to-time.
  • When betting on a Hot Bet you agree to take the bet without visibility of the runner or odds. This means you are trusting the judgement of the tipster based on their profile and/or performance. Once you have submitted a bet through Hot Bet, you will be presented with confirmation including the runner and the odds you have bet (for fixed odds selections). All bets are final. You are unable to cancel a bet because you did not like the selection. However, you may set a rule in your bet slip to choose an alternative selection if your stated rule is not satisfied.
  • If you dispute any data relating to the tip provided or the results, you should contact us at the earliest possible convenience. Hot Bet make every effort to ensure that information provided is correct..
