Restricted Territories

Restricted Territories 

Due to licensing laws and regulations within certain countries, Sportsbet does not allow the residents of persons located outside Australia or New Zealand to open or operate an account to place bets, or transact with Sportsbet.

If you are staying or holidaying outside Australia or New Zealand, you will not be able to access your Sportsbet account whilst you're there.

Why Do I Get A Restricted Territory Error When In Australia?

We have been made aware that some customers have had an error warning that they are in a restricted territory while being located in Australia. This issue can be resolved through your device settings, by following the below steps:

  1. Open your settings on your phone.
  2. Search for 'Location Services' or go to 'Privacy' > Location Services/Settings.
  3. Ensure that 'Location Services' is turned on & location access 'while using app' is enabled for Sportsbet.
  4. If they are already on, turn them off and on again.
  5. If that's still not working make sure 'Precise Location' is also enabled in the location settings.

It is still important to note that due to licensing laws and regulations within certain countries, Sportsbet does not allow the residents of or persons located outside Australia or New Zealand to open or operate an account to otherwise place bets, or transact with Sportsbet. 

If you are staying or holidaying outside Australia or New Zealand you will not be able to access your Sportsbet account whilst you're there.

Please note, while in New Zealand you will only be able to access Sportsbet via web browser not the app.
