To join a group, you need to receive an invite code and have a personal Sportsbet account. You can then head to the Bet With Mates section and enter the code to join your group. You may receive an invite code by SMS with a link to join, or simply be given the code itself via a group Admin.
Yes, you can change your name at any time through Bet With Mates account Settings. Your name will only be visible to other members of your group.
The only way to become a group Admin is to start a group, or be automatically assigned the Admin role if the previous Admin leaves the group.
Bets cannot be placed until the group Admin chooses to open group betting. Until then, betting is paused while the Admin waits for members to join. Betting is also paused when a Top Up is requested, up until an Admin resumes betting.
Your personal share of the group balance is equal to the group balance divided by the number of current members. You'll see it displayed in your group home screen as both a percentage share and a dollar amount, which can fluctuate as the number of members changes and funds are transferred in and out of your group account.
I'm a member, can I set automatic Top Ups?
No, the amount and timing of a Top Up is set each time by the Admin.
The Bet With Mates Social Contract
Importantly, it is solely the responsibility of the Group and its Members to decide, set and administer any particular Group betting protocols they see fit, including any betting limits imposed on Members (“Social Contract”). By using the Bet With Mates product, all Group Members acknowledge and agree that it is solely their responsibility to form the Social Contract in relation to the Group. The Group and/or Member(s) expressly acknowledge they have no recourse against Sportsbet nor the Northern Territory Racing Commission (and neither Sportsbet nor the Northern Territory Racing Commission will entertain or consider any complaint or dispute) in relation to any conduct by a Group Member which may be in breach of a Social Contract (including, without limitation, placing a bet, betting an amount in excess of any limit, or Cashing out a bet) on a Bet With Mates Group. For the avoidance of any doubt, this condition 5 will apply whether or not a Group has agreed any Social Contract or not.
