SPORTCHAMPS.COM.AU is the newest tournament betting platform legally available to Australians.
Licensed in the Northern Territory, the Alan Eskander-founded site follows in the footsteps of TopBetta, with punters able to enter tournaments for a fee, with the winner and placings then taking out the pot.
Unlike TopBetta, SportChamps.com is not also a bookmaker, it instead has a dedicated layout for tournament betting. This means there are some cool “social” features which allow you to link up with mates, see their activity, and even trash talk strangers during events.
How do the tournaments work?
After you have entered a tournament you will see the markets screen which will display all the available events to wager your tournament balance on.
Basically you are betting against other people, on set events, like the Melbourne Cup day meeting. Each tournament entry will have a set amount of points to spend on bets, with the players who do best splitting the spoils at the end.
Tournament types at SportChamps
In SportChamps short lifespan they have had a good mix of tournaments available, with many of them reflective of current events, like large Australian horse racing meetings or the opening of the NBA season.
These tournaments generally have a set prize pool, so even if only 100 people enter a tournament at $1 each, and the prize pool is $2500 you can walk away with the lions share of the promised amount.
SportChamps also has free tournaments available with players payed in bonus bets, which can be then bet again and if you’re good enough can then be withdrawn as real money.

Deposit options at Sports Champ
Deposit methods at SportsChamp.com are limited with just credit or debit card and bank transfers available.
In the deposits section of your account you will clearly see the two options.
While credit card and debit card deposits are instant, SportChamps says bank transfers will be processed the following day when they receive receipt of the transfer. Remember you must use your nickname as your ID, or it will be a pain in the arse for them to work out whose money it is.
Once you have signed up at the website, you can then tap the need help button, which will open an instant chat box. From all reports the SportChamps team respond pretty quickly and are very helpful.
